The theories for the benefit of tho newly born child and the immediate de velopment of its mental faculties are apt to make one smile. A recent conference on these matters was conducted by elderly professors and learned maiden ladles.

One of these palms is at | present In bloom, and we believe it to be the first of Ite kind to blossom in North Otago. The variety is Chamrerops For tune! (Tracbycarpus excelsus). It stands ! 6%ft. high, and the stem has been cleared to a' height of 3% ft by cutting off eight rows of large fan leaves, (these , being slightly discolored at the tips), ! leaving distinct cicatrices. The bole is . cylindrical, much tapered, and covered with a network of coarse fibrous tissues, j The top is crowned with a profusion of large fan leaves of a dark green color, I and under this bead has been produced four spathes or sheaths, and from each of these proceeds a branching spadix, on which are disposed numerous panicles of curious saffron yellow flowers, which consist of a three-parted calyx and co rolla, wi...

The Agricultural Research Association of Aberdeen has issued Part l£ of 'Utilisation of Nitrogen In the* Air;' In 4he form of a well-illustrated book of 120 pages. It contains a record of Mr Jamleson's further investigate ns dur ing the past year, the result of which is assumed to be a confirmation of the interesting discovery previously an nounced by him, that all plants are pro vided by Nature with the means of utilising to a greater or less exlent the nitrogen surrounding them in the air, and -as a corollary that the nodule or tubercle theory is without foundation.

THE PERSISTENT PRESENT A FANCY STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 29 January 1908

THE PERSlStfHT PRESENT, i A FANCY STORY. The corps dramatlque that a certain' Prince always maintained in residence at his Palace was so highly esteemed that the Chief of the Jesters had fre quently to listen, in his capacity of Its head arid director, to applications from persons desirous of being enrolled Uierein. Slight enough very often was the title of these people; but one day came a lady armed with a letter of com mendation from no less a personage than the Chief Scribe, who wrote the notices in the 'Court Gazette,' and his godchild was hardly to be dismissed with the usual polite excuses. The Chief of ihe Jesters, at the moment when the lady presented herself, chanced to be deep In the study of antiquity; for there was shortly to be presented* In the Palace Gardens a pageant ot Ancient Egypt, and It was a notable feature of the dramatic entertainments of that cul tured Court that (whilst matters more essential we:p not neglected) nobody ap peared In them wearing so much as. ...

"KNOTS" ON SATURN. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 29 January 1908

'KNOTS' ON SATUR3T. From the Lick ObHervatory, high up1 on the Rocky Mountains of California, romes the vague announcement that Professor Campbell last week discovered four 'knots' on Saturn, two on each side of the disc. The present temporary dis appearance of tbe rings affords a pecu liarly favorable opportunity for exam ining the surface of the planet, and as tronomers have been watching for evi dences of surface markings which may teii us something of its physical consti tution, and enable its period of rotation to be more accurately determined. As suming their objective reality, the move ments of theBe 'knots,' therefore, will be carefully followed for the next few months, as Instances of surface mark ings, so common on Jupiter, are ex tremely rare on Saturn.—' Westminster Gazette.'
