Abstract

The monthly meeting of the Royal Society
was held at the Museum last evening.
His Excellency the Governor, Sir
Gerald Strickland, presided.
The Secretary (Mrs. C. E. Morton) read
an extract from "Nature," in reference
to some bones of the small emu which
were sent to Professor Giglioli, of the
Royal Zoological Museum, Florence, they
having been found by Mr. E. M. Johnston
and the late Mr. Alex. Morton on
King Island.
"Electricity and Matter" was the subject
of a paper read by Mr. H. J. Spencer.
He remarked upon the progress that
had been made in the practical application
of electricity, some thirty years ago
there being no electrical industries in
existence. Further discussion arose and His Excellency praised the very rapid, useful and concise demonstration which had provided the members with more knowledge than they would have gained through book reading.
