Geology at the British Association.


THE proceedings of the Geological Section at Dundee were of exceptional interest, and the attendances were large up to the end of the meeting. The success of the section was due to two or three special features. Many of the papers dealt with the problems of the Highlands and of the Highland border, questions which are full of knotty points, and the men who are engaged in solving these problems were able to assemble in the meeting-room and there state their views and face discussion, which was often very lively and always full of vigorous earnestness. Then we had a commodious and quiet meeting-room, and the President (Dr. B. N. Peach) was a host in himself. As Dr. Heim said, in seconding a vote of thanks to him: “When I look in front I always see the sun,” and the vivacious countenance and stirring enthusiasm of Dr. Peach were an incentive to all present to rise to their best.
