1901 were published. In AUSTRIA-HUNGARY the Reichsrath for the first time in years enjoyed a period of orderly procedure, compressing in that interval much important legislation. The legislative record for AUSTRALIA and the Australian states during the first year under the federal constitution has an especial interest. In the department of biography the death roll includes the names of Queen VICTORIA, McKINLEY, HARRISON, LI HUNG CHANG, VERDI, CRISPI, ROWLAND, FISKE, etc. Some of the features of the scientific record are: The progress in AERIAL NAVIGATION; Loeb's and Mathews's experiments in PHYSIOLOGICAL CHEMISTRY; Marconi's successful application of WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY; in Physics, the foundation of the Bureau of Standards at Washington to serve as a national physical laboratory; in ASTRONOMY, the discovery of a new star in Perseus; in MEDICINE, the continued progress of SERUM THERAPY; in MAM MALOGY, the discovery of a new species of mammal, the Okapi; in PsyCHICAL RESEARCH, the renewed interest in the famous Piper case. Interest in Arctic EXPLORATION was sustained by Peary's report of a nearer approach to the Pole, and by the departure of the magnificently equipped BaldwinZiegler Expedition; and in ANTARCTIC EXPLORATION the operations of the year were the most important that have been undertaken for more than half a century. In the literary record of the year an attempt has been made, not only to describe briefly the principal books, but to reflect so far as possible the current discussion of their qualities. Thus, the article on LITERATURE, AMERICAN AND ENGLISH, avoiding on the one hand the character of a mere catalogue, and on the other that of an essay on a few selected books, presents a running commentary on a large number of the most important books of the year. The addition to the staff of contributors of a government official and authority on agricultural matters has made it possible to present in the articles AGRICULTURE, HORTICULTURE, and DAIRYING, as well as in the separate articles on the crops, an adequate treatment of the scientific and practical progress of the year.
