A valuable paper appeared in the Botanical Gazette for November, on "The Stem of the Pumpkin for illustrating Plant Histology," by J. C. Arthur. The disposition of the various tissues, with notes upon some of their peculiarities, and suggestions as to the best methods of preparing them for observation, make up the bulk of the paper.. Finally a classified list of the tissues is given.
