WE much regret to see the announcement that Dr. Noguchi died at Accra on May 21, of yellow fever contracted in the course of his investigation of the cause and mode of transmission of that disease. Our readers will recall that Prof. Adrian Stokes died in the same way in September last, and some of them may remember the death of that brilliant young man, Walter Myers, when he went to Para on the same errand so long ago as 1901.
