Abstract

There was a large attendance at the
monthly meeting of the Royal Society on
Monday, August 8th, when the President,
His Excellency the Governor (Viscount
Gormanston, G.C.M.G.), presided.
The Secretary (Mr. A. Morton) also
read a resolution passed by the medical
section of the society, requesting Dr.
Sprott to read his paper on Typhoid and
the Metropolitan drainage scheme.
His Excellency called attention to the
photographs in the room of some trout
from the Great Lake, sent for exhibition to
England.
Dr. Arthur H. Clarke read a paper on
the surgeon of the Tudor period and his
work, which was full of quaint interest to
the medical profession.
Mr. L. Rodway read a paper on a new
Cordyceps.
In conclusion to the discussion on typhoid and sntitation,Mr. R. M. Johnston said that though
an improved sanitation would not prevent
epidemics it would reduce the
death-rate. He believed in deep drainage
for a city like this into the deep water of
the sea.
