    THE part played by science in modern life, and the greater part it should play, are themes that offer appetizing food for thought to those engaged in scientific pursuits; but most laymen “look up and are fed not”, regarding science as something abstruse and esoteric, and remaining content to enjoy its benefits without inquiring into their past or future. All devotees of science will therefore welcome the renewed efforts which the British Association is making to bring home to the public the nature and magnitude of the services rendered by science to the community, and the ways in which science enters into, and maybe colours, their daily life.
