Laboratory of Physiology, University of Edinburgh. 
Prof. Schaefer and Dr..Watson* 
Prof. Schaefer holds in some respects the foremost position in 
physiology in Great Britain. He is looking forward to new 1 bora- 
tories from the fund established by Mr. Carnegie for the benefit of 
Scottish universities. 
The equipment of the lecture room and laboratories is very good 
and of special interest is the fine collection of old physiological 
apparatus of historic interest* all of which is carefully mounted, 
well labelled and displayed in glass cases. 
Experiments with rats.—Dr. L'atson has been carrying on a. large 
number of experiments with rats to study the effect of high proteid 
diet on the changes in tissues. These results have been published 
at considerable length in the Journal of Physiology and apparently 
Indicate that a high protein diet given to rats results in a marked 
alteration of the nature of certain tissues. He takes as a standard 
diet a bi'ead milk and diet which he calls a standard diet inasmuch as 
it has teen used in the laboratory for many years and is found to be 
a diet upon which the rats thrive well. 
One of his colleagues has done a large amount of research on the 
of the ovary. 
Quarters for animals.—An unusually well arranged house for keeping 
animals before and after experiments is found in this university. The 
anim -ls are out cf doors the greater portion of the time but the houses 
are so arranged that they can be heated and Prof. Schaefer assured me
