Abstract

The monthly meeting of the Royal Society
of Tasmania was held at the Tasmanian
Museum on Tuesday evening,
12th inst. His Excellency Sir Gerald
Strickland, who was accompanied by
Lady Edeline Strickland, and attended
by Captain Maclean Grilhn, A.D.C., presided.
His Excellency introduced the discussion
on a paper read by the bishop of
Tasmania at the previous meeting on
the housing problem, and referred to the
exhibition of model cottages for working
men recently held in London. The
cottages contained four or five rooms, and
were erected at a cost of about £150.
The Secretary (Mr. Alex. Morton) read
a paper prepared by Mr. W. F. Petterd,
entitled, "A note on the occurrence in
Wales of the mineral dundasite which
was supposed heretofore to be peculiar
to Tasmania."
The next paper was one read by Professor
H. B. Kitz on the "Evolution of
Words."
Mr. A. D. Arundel, an English visitor,
delivered a very interesting lecturette on
"Colour Photography". There was, he
said, at present no complete method of
colour photography, though experiments
in photographing through coal tar seemed
to promise some success.
