TROPICAL SUNLIGHT1

DR. PAUL C. FREER
THE subject of the influence of sunlight in the tropics has been the subject of extended discussion for many years, and the general opinion seems to be that the intensity of insolation is the most important factor influencing the physical welfare of the white inhabitants in those parts of the world lying within the regions which are generally considered as having a tropical climate.

THE NATIONAL PARKS FROM THE SCIENTIFIC AND EDUCATIONAL SIDE

LAURENCE F. SCHMECKEBIER
THE passage of the act of Congress creating the first national park —the Yellowstone—was due in large measure to the interest and activity of the chief geologist of the Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories, Dr. F. V. Hayden, and in the forty years that have elapsed since the creation of that great reservation the wonders of the national parks have claimed the attention of workers in every branch of science.

RESEARCH IN MEDICINE1
II. THE DEVELOPMENT OF LABORATORIES FOR THE MEDICAL SCIENCES

[no value]
RICHARD M. PEARCE
IT would be interesting to trace in the events and activities of the later years of the eighteenth and early years of the nineteenth centuries that development of general thought which exerted indirectly an influence on modern medicine; but, under the circumstances, I can outline only a few; it was the period of the struggle for American Independence, of the French Revolution and of England’s abolition of the slave trade.

H. S. JENNINGS
UNFORTUNATELY we are all interested in the subject of age and death. But the interest is of the kind that my friend Professor Lovejoy calls the interest of the repulsive. If we were free in the matter, we should doubtless prefer to neither hear nor know anything about the subject.

CONSERVATION IDEALS IN THE IMPROVEMENT OF PLANTS

DR. H. J. WEBBER
THE conservation movement had its inception in the wasteful methods practised in the utilization of our national resources, such as our forests and mineral deposits. Alfred Russel Wallace, the great English evolutionist and contemporary of Darwin, has characterized the last century as a century of despoliation of the natural resources of the earth.

A PHILOSOPHY OF GEOGRAPHY

WALTER EDWARD McCOURT
IN the minds of many persons to-day it might seem necessary to apologize for holding to a “philosophy of geography,” that study often remembered from school days with either utter dislike or disinterest; for in early years it was a bugbear to carry about the “big geography” in between the covers of which were gathered the colored maps of the various countries, with descriptions of those countries and their boundaries, products, exports, imports, rivers—a real Baedeker of the earth.

NO one who is interested in China and in things Chinese, and no one to whom the evolution of thought appeals, can fail to appreciate the recent articles by Dr. Edmunds, the learned president of the Canton Christian College, upon science among the Chinese.

GUSTAVUS OHLINGER
A RECENT issue of a Chinese daily published in Shanghai records this incident: The venerable teacher Chang, a man well known and respected in his community, was stricken with a mortal disease. Three days before his death he requested his eldest son to shear off his queue, explaining that “though he had worn this badge of servitude to the Manchu usurpers for over three score years, now that the day of freedom was at hand, he desired to appear in the other world, not as a slave, but as a free son of Han.”

A PROGRAM OF RADICAL DEMOCRACY

J. McKEEN CATTELL
THERE is advance towards radical democracy in every nation. In the United States the two political parties have made some progress in recent years in answer to the demands of the people; but this slow and halting movement, falling behind that of Great Britain, should be hastened, either by the formation of a new political party or of a radical section within one of the existing parties.

ON March 30, 1842, in the village of Jefferson, Georgia, Dr. Crawford W. Long administered ether to Mr. James Venable and, while he was completely anesthetized, removed a small tumor from the back of his neck. On the seventieth anniversary of the day, exercises in honor of Long were held in the Medical School of the University of Pennsylvania, from which he graduated in 1839.
