A FEW months ago (August 4) we reviewed the proceedings of the first International Agrogeological Congress, held at Budapest in 1909. The second was held this year simultaneously with the International Geological Congress at Stockholm, as an experiment. It was well organised by the local committee and well attended, the membership numbering about 160. The sessions were arranged to allow the frequent attendance of members at the geological meetings in which they were likely to be interested. But it seems to have been recognised by most that the bonds of association between the two congresses were not so close as to render it necessary, or even desirable, that they should be held at the same place and time; and it was decided by the council that the next meeting should take place independently at St. Petersburg four years hence.
