The death of Mr. Ernest Hart, the editor of the British Medical Journal, comes with a shock to his many friends in America, most of whom had already learned that he was in feeble health. They sympathized with him in his recent illness and operation, but from the reports published they had been led to believe that he was fairly convalescent.

His death leaves a gap in the ranks of medical journalism which can never be filled. He had an instinctive delicacy of judgment, made few mistakes and popularized the Journal as no man preceding him had been able to do, and at the same time made it one of the financial successes of the age. He had learned the art of being aggressive without offending, and the Journal under his management has been right in its advocacy of all those reforms in which the whole profession is interested.
