It is with deep regret that we record the death

of Miss Flora Stevenson, well known in Edinburgh, and indeed throughout Scotland, for the remarkable work accomplished by her both in the philanthropic and the educational world. She was for some time Chairman of the Edinburgh School Board, and two years ago the University of Edinburgh con- ferred upon her the honorary degree of LL.D. She also received this year the freedom of the city in which she lived and worked. A strong Free-trader as well as a Liberal Unionist, she became at its foundation a vice-president of the Women's Free-Trade Union. Miss Flora Stevenson, while capable and practical in a high degree, was possessed of great charm of manner, and her loss will be deeply felt throughout Scotland.
