Dr. Charles W. Eliot, who was president in 1903, has offered the suggestion that the going from one part of the country to another should be abandoned and that the meetings should be held in succession, say in New York, Washington, Chicago and Boston, where there is much to attract a large attendance and where there can be no question of adequate accommodations.

For 1910 Boston and Atlantic City are both earnestly in the field in addition to San Francisco, and Milwaukee, where the meeting of 1897 was held, has also been mentioned. Militating against the present availability of San Francisco are the very recent meeting in Los Angeles (1907), the far western point at which the meeting of 1909 was held, and the heavy travel of teachers to the coast during the past summer to visit the exposition at Seattle. On the other hand, San Francisco's hospitality is boundless. She is intensely in earnest in her wish again to entertain the Association, and a large local membership would be assured. The railroad conditions are likely to be the same wherever the meeting is held.

C.:-I find that the eighth edition of Remsen's Briefer Course contains valuable additional matter on the important relationships of electricity to chemistry and upon the practical application of chemistry to manufacturing processes. The important point about this book is that it does not rush into the practical applications of chemistry without first laying a rational basis for the same, without which basis there would be hopeless confusion and rote work for students to

undertake the application of chemistry to industrial activities. JONES'S LOGIC, INDUCTIVE AND DEDUCTIVE
