Prof. E. H. Starling, C.M.G., F.R.S


A FEW days ago news was telegraphed from Jamaica that Prof. Ernest Starling died on board the Ariguaing shortly before reaching Kingston. Of late years he had had indifferent health and had suffered from disabilities under which one of less heroic spirit could not have continued to work strenuously. His enthusiasm for the discovery of new truths was unimpaired, and his mind was so sympathetic and alert that it was difficult to believe he was not a sound man. Nevertheless, evidences of diminishing capacity for work without undue fatigue were obvious to his friends and a source of anxiety to them.
