    ON Monday last, Lord Lister's professional brethren gave a risible sign of their high regard for him, and their appreciation of his work, by presenting his portrait, executed by Mr. W. W. Ouless, R.A., to the Royal College of Surgeons. Im making the presentation on behalf of the subscribers, Mr. Davies Colley remarked that before long he hoped that those thousands who owed life and health to Lord Lister's discoveries would show their gratitude by founding some institution, or raising some great monument in his honour. There was, however, a special fitness in having a portrait painted of one who had done so much to advance the science of surgery, and placing the picture side by side with the portraits of John Hunter, Astley Cooper, and the other great surgeons who had done similar work.
