At the monthly meeting of the Royal

a paper prepared by Mr. J. K. McGlymont,
M.A., entitled "Notes on certain
birds met with by Crozet, one of the
very early navigators."

read a paper on hybridisation in relation
to animals and the definition of
species, narrating the result of his own
experiments and investigations.
Major F. T. Hayter, R.A.A., D.A.A.G.,
gave an exceedingly interesting and instructive
addrees on army signalling,
with the aid of diagrams explanatory of
various methods of army organisation
and a fine lot of army apparatus belonging
to the Defence Department, and of
the very latest make and efficiency.
A signalling party belonging to Capt.
