No special subject has been selected for the opening address of this
session of the "Physical Section of the Royal Society of Tasmania."

attention to some recent discoveries, which have an important bearing
on philosophic research, and the economic application of scientific
data to the comfort and welfare of the human race. Out of many
such discoveries I choose three to pass a few comments upon.
