    WE regret to record the death of Dr. Stanley Lane-Poole, the distinguished orientalist, which took place at his residence in Brompton Square, London, on Dec. 29, at the age of seventy-seven years. Dr. Lane-Poole, who was born in London on Dec. 18, 1854, was the son of Edward Stanley Poole, of the Science and Art Department, and a great-nephew of E. W. Lane, the translator of the “Arabian Nights”, the author of “The Modern Egyptians”, and the compiler of an Arabic lexicon—a connexion in which he took considerable pride and emphasised by incorporating “Lane” by a hyphen in his surname.
