Scarcity of meteoric stones.

--For many years Baunmulter, a naturalist of Brunn, Germany, has been engaged in forming a collection of meteoric stones. The difficulty of obtaining authentic fragments of aerolites may be imagined when it is known that his cabinet, the largest collection hitherto made, contains specimens from only twenty-nine different localities. The entire collection has just been sold to the Society of Natural History of Calcutta.
