Capt. W. G. Murray of the Survey Department has struck out an entirely new path, and exhibited a very beautiful and interesting series of photographs of Indian flowers,fruit, and vegetables, admirably coloured with the aniline colours and we are glad to see that a special prize has been awarded for these photographs, coupled with a recommendation of the judges, that in future a prize should be awarded for such subjects.
