THE visit of President Loubet to England, as a guest of the British Court, is an event which should not pass unnoticed in the scientific world; he comes as the representative of the French nation. On manv occasions President Loubet has shown interest in scientific meetings and congresses held in France, and has extended the warmest hospitality to the foreign members who attended them. His country takes a place in the foremost rank of those which are contributing to the advancement of science, and the names of leading French investigators are familiar words not only in the British Isles, but in all places where scientific knowledge is cultivated. It is a pity that the British associates and correspondants of the Academy of Sciences have not taken the opportunity to welcome President Loubet, as the representatives of the scientific interests of both nations. Such an act of simple courtesy ought not to have been omitted.
