    THE elevation of Sir Joseph Lister to the Peerage is a New Year's honour which has been received with the keenest satisfaction in the scientific world. It may be taken as an acknowledgment by the Crown of the high position of the President of the Royal Society, as well as a recognition of the life-long work in science which led to Sir Joseph Lister's selection for that honoured Presidency.
