1. HOW HAS THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING JUNE 30, 1896, COMPARED WITH THE PREVIOUS YEAR, AS FAR AS (1) THE NUMBER OF ACCESSIONS AND (2) THEIR SCIENTIFIC VALUE ARE CONCERNED?

(1) During the fiscal year ending June 30, 1986, there were 135 accessions, while during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1985, there were only 99 accessions, making an increase of 36.
(2) The accessions of the year ending June 30, 1895, compromised only two of real value, viz, the Chanler collections from Jom Boue Range, and the Noctuid types from J.B.Smith, and through him, from Bruce.  It is safe to say that the accessions for the year 1896 have been five times as valuable as those for the year 1895.
