saving will result in teaching, as in engineering, if the experience on the part of one shall prevent needless experimenting on the part of many. The meetings of this Society have already been found of definite value in this direction. The Society now numbers two hundred and three members, representing thirty-six states, Canada and several European countries. All who are engaged in the work of engineering education in any branch, or who have a special interest in it, are welcomed as members. The Fifth Annual Meeting will be held in Toronto, Ontario, August 16, 17, 18, 1897. (The Meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science will open on the afternoon of August 18, 1897.)
