Abstract

The monthly meeting of the Royal Society
was held at the Museum on Monday
evening, July 10, the President, His Excellency
Sir Gerald Strickland, K.C.M.G.,
presiding.
His Excellency said he had been invited —as president—to represent the feelings
of the Royal Society in offering very
hearty congratulations to Mr. Bernard
Shaw on the occasion of His Majesty the
King having conferred on him the recognition
of his long services by making him a
member of the Imperial Service Order.
Dr. Elkington (Chief Medical Officer)
then read an exhaustive paper on "Some
Social and Economic Aspects of Public
Health Work." Mr. K. L. Murray, C.E., then read a somewhat technical paper on "Coal and a
Coal Mine," which was illustrated by specimens
from the Sandfly colliery and
other coal mines, both in and outside of
Tasmania.
