Brief reports of meetings for the year, including a special general meeting to consider recommendation for alterations of rules. At the April meeting an additional note on stones used by the Aborigines by Mr H. Stuart Doce was read in which he described two types of "hammer" or "pounding" stones, of which he had found specimens in coastal sand dunes, and inland on the River Mersey, on the North-West Coast of Tasmania. The business of the June meeting was a discussion of the supposed former land connects of Antarctica with Australasia and South America.
