      CHARLES STEWART CLOUSTON, M.D.EDIN.

      DR. CHARLES STEWART CLOUSTON of Gunnersbury, London, who
      died on September 16th, 1883, has been cut off in the very prime of

      his life, being only thirty-six years of age, a victim to professional
      duty, for he caught a bad attack of scarlet fever some years ago

      from a patient, to which his later illness can be traced. He was
      the son of the Rev. Charles Clouston, LL.D., for thirty years minister of the parish of Sandwick, Orkney, and now the venerable father

      of the Church of Scotland, and the oldest member of the College of

      Surgeons of Edinburgh.

      Dr. Clouston inherited his father's scientific tastes, and studied

      medicine in Edinburgh University. He took a distinguished place

      there, and especially devoted himself to clinical work. He took his

      M.B., C.M., in 1868 with honours, and first went to Hay, where he

      built up a practice, as large as he could possibly overtake, and was

      universally esteemed as a man and as a physician. He did not rest
      contented with relying on former rules of practice, but made

      accurate observations for himself on many subjects. Especially in

      regard to the treatment of rheumatism by the salicylates, he made
      exte nsive original investigations, which he embodied in his graduation thesis for M.D. in 1881, and afterwards published in the Practdtioner.

      They show a markedly scientific spirit and close clinical
      observation. Hle removed to Gunnersbury, London, a few years

      ago, and soon was engaged in extensive practice there.
      He was a man of sound judgment and of high professional honour, as well as marked general ability and culture. He suffered

      from pneumonia in November last, and this was succeeded by

      a series of obscure hepatic, renal, and purpuric symptoms. He
      went up to the Orkneys in June, to see if his native air would not restore his health; but he steadily got worse, and died in the manse

      where he was born, calm, cheerful, and resigned to the will of Providence,

      as a man who had done his work well; only mourning for
      those he left behind.

      He married Emma, eldest daughter of William Traill, M.D., of

      oodwick, Orkney, by whom he leaves five young children. On his
      father's side he came of a Norse stock; and through his two grand mothers

      he was connected wlth the Traills of Holland and the

      Stewart's of Brugh, two of the oldest Orkney families of Scotch

      importation.
