Excerpt from The Johns Hopkins University Circulars: Volumes XVII-XIX, 1897-1900 He devoted last winter to the anatomical and histological study and the systematic description of these species, and his work on the Cubomedusae, which is complete and fully illustrated, was accepted, in June last, as a thesis for the degree of Ph. D. As this work showed that the eyes of these jelly-fish present favorable conditions for studying the action of retinal pigment-cells under the influence of light and darkness, he returned to Jamaica to study the physiology of vision in the Cubomedusae, and he brought home notes and preserved specimens which will in time enable some one else to complete this work, and to furnish a supplement to Conant's thesis. It has fallen to me to tell the story of the expedition to Jamaica and its tragical end. And it has seemed best to do this in a bald outline, and to omit the sad details. The accounts of the life and character and work of Prof. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Johns Hopkins University Circulars, Vol. 19: June, 1900 The solution of sodium and potassium also conducted, but also to a small extent compared with the ammonia solutions. There was some polariza tion, but it was very small, and is easily explained by the presence of the amide which is constantly being formed. It may also be noted that sulphur in methyl amine conducts the current, but with marked polarization and with decomposition of the solution. The products of this decomposition have not been studied.

Excerpt from Johns Hopkins University Circulars, Vol. 10: November 1890 Impossible though it be to suppress the natural sorrow for our personal loss, for the loss to the University and to the Hospital, no more beautiful close could have been wished for a course that had stretched through so many years of arduous labor and high achievement: and we know that the mem ory of a life so rounded and complete will abide in strength, and even beyond that memory, the good which he has wrought and which we here reverently recognize.

Excerpt from Johns Hopkins University Circulars, Vol. 13: April, 1894 In 1886, as above stated, the comet passed very close to the planet Jupiter probably within the orbit of the Fifth Satellite. Exactly how close the two bodies were at any given time is impossible to say; the uncertainty introduced through the original observations here becomes very prominent and precludes many interesting investigations. We can, however, readily place limits, within which the comet certainly passed. It may be stated quite definitely that the comet passed the center of the planet at a distance not greater than and not less than radius of the planet itself. In other words the center of the comet may have grazed the surface of Jupiter, and it certainly approached that surface to within radii of the planet, or only miles.

Excerpt from Johns Hopkins University Circulars, Vol. 10: February, 1891 That a thing is conceivable and that it is demonstrated are not equivalent. Nevertheless, the behavior of water, alcohol and other conducting liquids as cited in the foregoing pages, and as given by other observers, seems to me to afford very strong reasons for attributing to these electrolytes a genuine specific inductive capacity. This investigation was carried on under the general direction of Professor A. L. Kimball of the Johns Hopkins University. The experiments were made at the Physical Laboratory of the University of Wisconsin, and I take pleasure in acknowledging my obligation to Professor J. E. Davies, who generously placed at my disposal the utmost resources of his laboratory, and who furnished me with the beautiful rotating commutator, which was constructed from my design in the University machine shops.

Excerpt from Johns Hopkins University Circulars, Vol. 22: December, 1902 The manuscript basis on which this last-mentioned edition rests is unknown to me, but the author himself is thought to have com posed his work about the year 1220, and hence the passage quoted above attests the early popularity of the Merlin legend in the valley of the Rhine. Alfred william stratton, ph. D., 1895, died on the 23d of August, at Gulmarg in Kashmir in India. He was graduated in 1887 in the University of Toronto, and for some years teacher of Classics in the Hamilton Collegiate Institute. In 1892 he came to this University as a student of Sanskrit and Comparative Philology, was appointed Fellow in 1893, and promoted to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in 1895. He was at once made Assistant, and later Associate in Sanskrit at the University of Chicago there he remained, a successful teacher and investigator, until the year 1899. At that time the combined position of Principal of the Ori ental College at Lahore and Registrar of the. Panjab University became vacant. The incumbent of that position, the famous Indologist A. M. Stein, had accepted the post of Principal of the Madrassah in Calcutta, and Professor Bloomfield was called upon to nominate his successor. Upon his recommendation Dr. Stratton was duly appointed to the difficult and responsible post. His duties were to administer the affairs of higher education in the Panjab, and at the same time to manage the Oriental College at Lahore and to lecture on Sanskrit and Comparative Philology. He was also carrying on during that time investigations of a high order, and collecting manuscript materials for the production of a hitherto unpublished Vedic text. In July of the present year he left Lahore for his vacation in Kashmir; he appeared to be well, though overworked and weakened by the heat of the Indian plains. The second day after reaching the mountains he fell ill of Malta fever, ' died, and was buried at Gulmarg. He was thirty eight years of age at the time of his death. His wife was with him until the end came; there are no children. Indian science has lost through his death one of its most useful and promising workers; the Johns Hopkins University one of its most brilliant graduates.
