Mr Walter Whitehead presided over an appreciative audience, and introduced the lecturer as an old friend.— Professor Stirling gave a most interesting lec- ture, profusely illustrated by means of a power- ful lantern. He traced the process of diges- tion from the lowest forms of life upwards to the "form divine," and showed that digestion; takes place in plant life as well as in animal life, and that it is carried on by a mechanical and chemical process, largely by means of for- ments—thus digestion is essiantially a process of fermentation. The lecture was followed with keen interest throughout, the remarks of the lecturer being as intelligible as the beauti- ful illustrations thrown upon. the screen.—At the conclusion of the Lecture Mr Brock pro- posed a hearty vote of thanks to the lecturer, which was seconded by Mr J. M. Porter, who remarked that Professor Stirling had' certainly given all present enough food for thought, and he hoped it would not produce mental indiges- tion.—Professor Stirling replied, <tnd a vote of thanks to Mr Whitehead concluded the pro- ceedings.
