Sheffield Daily Telegraph Thursday 18 December 1902


Last night was “exhibition night” at the monthly meeting of the Doncaster Scientific Society, and there was an excellent attendance. A number of microscopes and objects of interest were placed on the table, but the bulk the evening was given over to listening to papers on a variety of subjects. Mr. A. Jordan presided.

The first paper, which was illustrated by lantern views, was by Mr. M. Robinson, French Gate, entitled “A holiday on steam trawler in the North Sea.” Mr. E. Moor followed with a capital report of his visit to the annual meeting of the Yorkshire Naturalists’ Association at Hull last week, and the meeting concluded with an essay on ” Life history of the common gnat,” by Mr. Mableton.
