It would seem, therefore,very doubtful whetlier the School can be ready to start as a complete medical school next October, but Mr. Sheen's appointment, we are informed, is to date from the first day of that month. SIR J. WALTON BROWNE. MR. J. WALTON BROWNE, M.D., D.L., received the honour of kniglhthood on the occasion of His Majesty's visit to open tlle Parliament of Northern Ireland. Sir Walton Browne is the senior consulting surgeon of the Belfast Royal Hospital, to
... Royal Hospital, to the Oplhthalmic Hospital, and to the Ulster Hospital for Women and Children. He was for tlhirty-seven years visiting surgeon to the first of these institutions, and was an immense favourite with his colleagues and the students. It would be a very lengthy matter simply to enumerate the various offices he has held and the duties he has discharged during his long, arduous, and honourable career. He resigned from the active staff of the Royal Victoria Hospital in 1912, and was made Deputy Lieutenant for the city in 1913. For over forty years he acted as surgeon to the post-office in Belfast. All his colleagues past and present, the profession in general in Ulster, and his innumerable friends everywhere will be deeply gratified at this recognition of his services, and will ofer him their happiest wishes for many years of health and strength to carry the new dignity.
