SCIENCE PROGRESS owes its origin to an endeavor to found a scientific journal containing original papers and summaries of the present state of knowl- edge in all branches of science. The necessity for such a journal is to be found in the fact that, with the specialization which necessarily accompanies the mod- ern development of scientific thought and work, it is increasingly difficult for even the professional man of science to keep in touch with the trend of thought and the progress achieved in subjects other than those in which his immediate interests lie. This difficulty is felt by teachers and students in colleges and schools, and by the general educated public interested in scientifie questions. SCIENCE PROGRESS claims to have filled this want.

Published early in January, April, July, and October. Bach number consists of about 192 pages, contributed by authorities in their respective subjects.

Walker Prizes in NaturalHistory By the provisions of the will of the late Dr. W'illiam Johnson Walker, tw%vo prizes are annually

offered by the Boston Society of Natural History for the best memoirs written in the Englislh language, oni subjects proposed by a Committee appointed by the Council.

For the best memoir presented a prize of sixty dollars may be a-warded; if, lhowvever, the mem- oir be one of marked merit, the amounit may be increased to onie hnndred dollars, at the discretion | of the Committee.

For the n-ext best mnemoir a prize not exceeding fifty dollars mnay be awarded. Prizes will not be awarded unliess the memoirs presenteed are of adequate merit. The competition for these prizes is not restricted, but is open to all. It is nevertheless the

tradition of the Society that the founider of these prizes intended thein more in the nature of encouragement to younger niaturalists than as rewards for the work of mature inivestigators.

Attention is especially called to the following points:- 1. In all cases the memoirs are to be based on a consiiderable body of original and unpub-

lished work, accompanied by at general review of the literatuire of the subject. 2. Anything in the memoir which shall furnish proof of the identity of the author shall be coni-

sidered as debarring the essay from competition. 3. Although the awards will be based on their intrinsic merits, preference may be giveni to

memoirs bearing evidence of biaring been prepared with special referenice to competition for these prizes.

4. Each memoir must be accompanied by a sealed envelope enclosinig the auithor's name and superscribed with a motto corresponding to one borne by the manuscript, and must be in the hands of the Secretary on or before March 1st of the year for which the prize is offcred.

5. The Society assumes no responsibility for publication of manuscripts submitted, anid pub- lication should not 1)e made before the Annual Meeting of thc Society in May.
