" Certain lighthouses on the migration routes have been specially

fitted with perching screens, which are alive with

birds at certain seasons. ` To prevent the birds flying blindly into the liectinf glaSs with fatal results, it is proposed to erect screens around the lights." This sort of information, and descriptions of what is being done 'and-What should be done to promote the welfare of animals is contained in the 90th Report of the Scottish Society- for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

We feel sure many readers of the Spectator will want to read this Report, which can be obtained gratis by • anyone who cares to send for it to 19 Melville Street, Edinburgh.
