A large audience assembled at the hall last Saturday afternoon to listen to the memorial services of the late Dr. Palmer. Dr. Ford, who has been a colaborer with the deceased for 35 years, delivered the addresg. It brought to mind forcibly, as he reviewed the work of the late dean, together with the services of other pioneers of the institution, that those who have laid the foundations of Michigan's pride are fast passing away, leaving their work and charge to younger heads and hands. ur. uuver wenden Holmes, in an address at Boston delivered a few years sinoe, made the remark that t waa worth taking a trip across the Atlantic to hear Dr. Ford lecture on anatomy. In this he did not make an overstatement. But in the memorial address of Dr. Palmer, Dr. Ford, in reviewingthelife of the late d'ean, demonstrating its life lessons that should be learned espeoially by every student of medicine, gave those students old and young who were assembled before hitn a Jasson worth more than a journey to know. It would be impossible to reproduce it here because the worth lay in the examples and subtile suggestions. Dr. Palmer's vast benefit to the institution was shown, together with his excellent individual traits of character which after all were the secret of his success and radirectly the secret of the success of the department of which he was at the head. After reviewing the life of the doctor, which has already been given in this paper, Dr. Ford epoke of those other pioneers I who had been foremost in raising the I standard of the medical school to its present prominent position. Among these I pecially touching and worthy were his remarks on the services of Dr. Douglas, still living, and those of Drs. Sage, Cheever, nd Gunn now passed away.
