Abstract

DURING the daily routine of life in a laboratory many observations are made of an isolated character, perhaps having no direct bearing on the subject in hand, but which, nevertheless, may be eminently suggestive to other minds. The record of such observations are often lost; they are not communicated unless they find a place in a larger research, and they go to form the capital which every worker is accumulating till his death, much of which, unfortunately, perishes with him. I therefore cordially approve of the suggestion of the Editor that workers in the various departments of experimental science should occasionally write a few notes containing a brief account of any observations recently made, and I shall be glad to contribute my quota.
