We have received an extremely valuable gift from Mr. Thornley, to whom we owe much in the way of advice and sympathy in our Nature Work: --

"DEAR MISS MASON,--I hope you will receive safely, and be pleased to accept, the box of British Mosses which I send you to-day. It contains a collection of 250 species; that is about half the British species. It contains all the commonly occurring ones. They were collected by a friend of mine, who is very particular in selecting his specimens, and labelling and dating them; and I have the utmost confidence in his work. Moreover, he is a friend of Dr. Braithwaite, of Bryological fame. Many of the Mosses are from your district. I will shortly write Miss Barnett about books, and the way in which I think the collection may be profitably used. I hope shortly to be able to follow it up with a collection of British Hepatics, and that would give you a good start with the Cryptogamia.

Yours very sincerely, ALFRED THORNLEY."


P.N.E.U. Literary Society.--Subject for April: Grace Abounding (John Bunyan).

Another year of the above two societies is ended. The examiner is glad to five a good report of the success of both. The members in the respective societies have done excellent work and shown much interest in it. Miss K. Woodmartin has won the prize in the Translation Society; Miss R. Pennethorne has won the prize in the Literary Society.
