Transcriber's notes:

(1) Numbers following letters (without space) like C2 were originally printed in subscript. Letter subscripts are preceded by an underscore, like C n.

(2) Characters following a carat (^) were printed in superscript.

(3) Side notes were relocated to function as titles of their respective paragraphs.

(4) Macrons and breves above letters and dots below letters were not inserted.

(5) [root] stands for the root symbol; [alpha], [beta], etc. for greek letters.

(6) The following typographical errors have been corrected:

'substances' amended from 'subtances'.

ARTICLE EVOLUTION: "The conception of evolution was henceforward irrepressible, and it incessantly reappears, in one shape or another, up to the year 1858, when Charles Darwin and A.R. Wallace published their Theory of Natural Selection." 'irrepressible' amended from 'irrespressible'.

ARTICLE EVOLUTION: "And those of the eighth group are not only unintelligible without the assumption of evolution, but can be proved never to be discordant with that hypothesis, while, in some cases, they are exactly such as the hypothesis requires." 'unintelligible' amended from 'unin intelligible'.

ARTICLE EVORA: "From 1663 to 1665 it was held by the Spaniards. In 1832 Dom Miguel, retreating before Dom Pedro, took refuge in Evora; and here was signed the convention of Evora, by which he was banished." 'From' amended from 'Fom'.

ARTICLE EWING, JULIANA HORATIA ORR: "From this time until her death (13th May 1885), previously to which she had been a constant invalid, Mrs Ewing produced a number of charming children's stories." 'May' amended from 'may'.

ARTICLE EXAMINATIONS: "In many universities of the United States there is a definite understanding that emoluments shall only be accepted by those needing them." 'In' amended from 'It'.

ARTICLE EXECUTION: "There may still be imprisonment in England, under the writ rarely used in practice ne exeat regno, which issues to prevent a debtor from leaving the kingdom." 'kingdom' amended from 'kindgom'.

ARTICLE EXECUTION: "Under the German Code of Civil Procedure (Arts. 796 et seq.), both the goods and (if the goods do not offer adequate security) the person of the debtor may be seized (the process is called arrest) as a guarantee of payment." 'Procedure' amended from 'Prodecure'.

ARTICLE EZRA, THIRD BOOK OF: "The Apocalypse is called 1 Esdras, our author 2 Esdras, and Ezra and Nehemiah 3 Esdras, or 3 and 4 Esdras." 'Apocalypse' amended from 'Apocalyspe'.

ARTICLE EZRA AND NEHEMIAH, BOOKS OF: "It is difficult to follow its progress clearly, and the account ceases abruptly in. vi. 17 19 with the notice of the conspiracy of Tobiah and the nobles of Judah." 'progress' amended from 'progrees'.
