On the twenty-fourth day of the month of this issue the scientific world celebrates the three hundredth anniversary of the birth of Antony van Leeuwenhoek. The phrase, "the scientific world," is used advisedly for there are few branches of science which do not owe much to the insatiable curiosity of this honest Dutchman. Particularly do the microscopists claim him for their own, the bacteriologists, protozoologists, and microphytologists; but the physiologists, chemists, and crystallographers likewise have a claim. A fuller appreciation than the editorial columns permit is published as the final article in this issue.
