PROFESSOR SIR J. J. THOMSON
THE method to which I shall refer this evening is the one I described in a lecture I gave here two years ago. The nature of the method may be understood from the diagram given in Fig. 1. A is a vessel containing the gases at a very low pressure; an electric discharge is sent through these gases, passing from the anode to the cathode C.

DR. GEORGE FREDERICK KUNZ
THE newly elected president of the Ninth International Congress of Applied Chemistry, Professor Paul Walden, was born near Riga in the Russian province Livonia July 27, 1863. Hence, although of German blood, he is by birth a Russian. He first attended the Real School in Riga, and then the Polytechnicum there, where he was one of the most apt and brilliant pupils of the great Ostwald.

PROFESSOR CHARLES HART HANDSCHIN
THE future of higher education in America depends upon the position we shall grant to the college and university professor. The growing conception that the faculty—not buildings, nor advertisements, nor pyrotechnic display—but the faculty, makes the school is bound eventually to be accepted.

EDWARD WHYMPER: ALPINIST OF THE HEROIC AGE

PROFESSOR B. E. YOUNG
ON September 16, 1911, there died suddenly at Chamonix, France, a man who made a most unusual figure in his specialty. Most of us must have thought of Edward Whymper as long since dead and gone to the limbo of travelers, for he did his work a generation ago, reached his fame and enjoyed it, and had lately been forgotten, in the general commercialization of sports that has taken place in the last two decades.

DR. J. FRANK DANIEL
SOME problems permit of a ready and satisfactory solution with but little difficulty, while in fullness others remain obscure for generation upon generation, being resolved slowly and at great pains. In the latter class stand the problems involved in the study of alcohol.

PROFESSOR H. E. JORDAN,
THE United States has something more than a “negro problem”; it has a mulatto problem. Our 10,000,000 colored fellow-citizens comprise somewhat less than 8,000,000 full-blooded negroes ; approximately 2,000,000 contain varying percentages of “white” blood.

SIDNEY LIEBOVITZ
WHEN we consider the marked resemblances and striking interrelations of the elements as expressed by the Periodic System, the conviction grows more and more strongly upon us that this system is the external expression of a fundamental process in nature, to which are due the general properties, as well as the individual characteristics, of the elements.

CORA SUTTON CASTLE
THE word eminent as used in this study covers the range of meaning designated by the Century Dictionary which defines the term as “ high in rank, office, worth or public estimation ; conspicuous, highly distinguished.” According to the same authority, the word is rarely used in a bad sense.
