The Encyclopædia Britannica


    IT is impossible to do justice in detail to all the leading scientific articles in this volume; we can only express our satisfaction of the admirable manner in which the publication keeps to the level of its first promise. We have only space to glance at one or two articles, regretting that those on “Instinct,” by Mr. Romanes; “Insectivorous Plants,” by Mr. P. Geddes; “Iron,” by Dr. Alder Wright; “Kangaroo,” by Prof. Flower, and others of equally high mark, can only be mentioned.
