The Ganong Botanical Apparatus

Attention is called to the apparatus for use in plant physiology, and especially adapted for college and secondary school work, which we are producing under the direction of Pro- fessor W. F. Ganong, of Smith College.

New methods of teaching botany make this apparatus indispensable.

Experiments in photosynthesis, transpira- tion, osmosis, respiration, may be carried on by the use of this apparatus, so as to render processes intelligible to students.

A complete descriptive catalog with full directions for use of the various pieces has been published and will be sent free on re- quest.

This model is a favorite one with British students and it is especially advantageous be- cause additions may be made to it as may be found necessary or con- venient.

It has Watson's diagonal rack-work coarse adjustment and perfected lever fi n e adjustment. The stage is covered with rubber and it carries an Abbe il- luminator. A late president o f t h e Eoyal Microscop- ical Society said of it : "A Microscope that can for the first time with truth be called 'good enough for Histo- logical purposes.' "
