Testimonial to Virchow.—The friends and admirers of Dr. Rudolf Virchow in Great Britain have, according to The Lancet, February 7, undertaken the formation of a testimonial fund to enable them to unite with others of other nations in the celebration of the seventieth birthday of "the great exponent of cellular pathology." This event will take place October 13, 1891. Sir James Paget was unanimously agreed upon, by the committee organizing the Fund, to be invited to take the chairmanship of the English branch of the movement. The editor of The Lancet adds: "The movement set on foot in Germany will doubtless spread to every country in the world, and we are glad to find that Great Britain will be represented." The nature of the proposed testimonial will include the presentation of a large gold portrait medal to Virchow himself, and bronze replicas of the same to members of his family
