Dr. Guido Bacelli, the Professor of Medicine in the Policlinico of Rome, is sometimes styled " the Virchow of Italy." He has recently been appointed Minister of Public Instruction. He had formerly held the same portfolio from 1881 to 1884. He was late President of the Board of Health for the Kingdom of Italy. He is an eloquent orator, and has been chosen to preside over the International Congress, to be held in Rome, next Easter.

Professor Bacelli will be remembered as having made the eloquent response, in Latin, to the address of welcome, at the Tenth International Medical Congress. To those who never before heard the Latin language spoken by an Italian, its effect was thrilling beyond expression.
