WE regret to announce that Prof. D. P. Penhallow, D.Sc., F.R.S. (Canada), president of the American Society of Naturalists, and professor of botany in McGill University, Canada, died on October 20, in consequence of an apoplectic seizure, whilst on board the ss. Lake Manitoba, on voyage to Liverpool. His remains were brought to Liverpool, and were, in accordance with his wishes, cremated at Anfield Cemetery on Friday, October 28. Prof, and Mrs. Penhallow were about to begin a year's vacation, and had intended spending the winter in the south of England. In consequence of the severe strain of work which Prof. Penhallow had undergone during the last few years, his previously excellent health had shown signs of giving way, and under medical advice he was about to take a prolonged rest, when the lamentable event of his decease occurred.
