The view^f were shown on a scale of magnificence.!) The strong rays of the oxyhydrogen' did fullii justice to the splendid photographs of the' moon taken at the Melbourne Observatory, and shown in comparison -with Itho photo graphs of Eutherfurd,. of the United States'. As usual the audience was very numerous. Mr, Proctor said he was surprised and gratified to find -so large a gathering after what, they must all admit was the dismal failure of the lantern parts of the arrange ments on Friday.
