BERLIN, Jan 19-The' Emperor's speech in the
White Hall of the Sohloss on the occasion of to-
day's celebration of the foundry of the German-
Empire is admitted upon all sides to have been
a carefully prepared state manifesto and dignified
pacific document. The wonderful development
of the Empire, he said, was now respected if not
loved by the council of nations. Such a command.
ing position had brought duties in addition, to
rights. If Germany desired to retain her position
in Europe she must arm so as to be able to support
her voice on sea. as well as on land. It was there-.
fore imperative that she should complete her naval
armaments and increase her fleet.

BERLIN, Jan 18-To-day was the twenty-fifth
anniversary of the proclamation of 'the German
Empire and was observed as a whole holiday in
Berlin and other German cities. Services were
held in all of the churches and synagogues in the
city and public buildings, and private houses were
draped with flags, the effect of which, however,
was greatly marred by the drizzling rain and fog^-
which prevailed.

Bermuda Hunt Club Races.
The Bermuda Hunt Club must again be con-
gratulated upon havin 2 brought to a successful
termination another of their race meetings on
the Shelly Bay Course. Fortunately the
weather was fine and bracing, and if we except
a very slight shower which occurred at thp
commencement, was all that could be desired
and when it is stated that the Grand Stand en-
closure had been enlarged and improved and
that the course was in splendid order, it will
not be surprising that a good day's sport was
witnessed. The stewards and other officials had
apparently been sparing neither in time nor ex-
pense to ensure a really good meeting and their
efforts met with a well deserved reward though
it must be admitted that considering the great
trouble taken to insure the comfort of those for
whom the grand stand and enclosure were in-
tended, this portion of the ground was not pa-
tronized so well as it ought to have been. The
meeting was under the patronage of His Excel-
lency. General T. C. Lyons, C. B., who was pre-
sent during the whole time aud apparently
took a lively interest in the proceedings. Vice
Admiral Erskine. Commander-in-Chief of the
Fleet in these waters was also present and all
the principal officers of the united services as
well as the chief officials of the colony, might
have been seen in the enclosure, all evidently
bent on making the best of a pleasant outing
and a good day's sport. There was as usual, a
large gathering of the general public from all
parts of the colony, and a variety of tents,
booths, &c., had been erected, provided with
the customary bountiful supply of refreshment
of various kinds, while that good order which
is a characteristic of these meetings at Shelly
Bay, prevailed everywhere along the course
and vicinity. The following is a brief descrip-
tion of the various events:

ertions the success of the meeting was, in a
great measure due and the Club is to be con-
gratulated upon having so capable a gentleman
occupying that most important post. It may
be added that the club had a Pari Ifutuel on
the ground under the direction of Surg-Captn

have profited considerably thereby.

: LONDON, Jan 1S.-Though the Admiralty
refuses to coaniran ordeny the statement that
the new Flying Squadron is destined for Ber-
muda iltean be stated on the authority of offi-
cers attache I to the squadron that they believe
if they do not go to uermuda they will go to
some port in the West Indies. They do not
know the nature of the service they are .piug
to. In view of the dispute with Venezu dla the
fact of the despatching of the squadron to thd
West Indies causes some anxiety.
NEW YORK, Jan 18.-The New York lierald
has the following from Caracas, Venaezuela:
There is great excitement here and much
revolutionary talk on the part of those who are
dissatisfied with the government, the imnm li-
ate disturbing cause being the ne ws received
from Trinidad that two new English expeli-
Lions have been despatched from Demerara for

LONDOn, Jan 19-The latest report from Ports.
mouth is that the flying squadron will leave Spit-
head on Tuesday next for Bereahaven and
probably proceed thence bo Gibraltar where it will
await further orders. It is questioned by some
whether the Government has yeb decided upon the
squadrons objetobive point and the opinion is held
in some quarters that having rushed its oonoentra.-
tioa to soothe the country during the anti.German
fever the main purpose has been served and the
squadron can now patrol the seas waiting for
events that may transpire anywhere.


LONDON, Jan 18-All the vessels comprising the
flying squadron have arrived at Spithead.
I ROME, Jan 18-Advices from Abyssinia say that
the Shoans who are surrounding Makalle are
drawing their lines closer. The beseiged Italians
are well provisioned, but it is feared that their
supply of water-may become exhausted.
MADRID, Jan 18.-A" news agency here
denies that England has sent an ultimatum to
China demanding the opening of the West
river ports to foreign commerce and says it
,learns that friendly negotiations are in pro-
gress between England and China looking to
opening the said port.
* BEuIN, Jan 19.-All the stories in circula-
tion to the effect that the triple alliance has
been shaken through England's hostility to
tGermany are semi officially declared to be ut-
erly without foundation. None of the powers
concerned according to this authority, suggest-
ed the slightest modification of the terms of
the Dreibund or intimated a desire to withdraw
therefrom. Both the Berlit and Vienna gov-
ernments are interested in the ventures of Italy
in Abyssinia and are fully conscious of the
consequent drain which are weakening her as
an ally.' That is held to be no sufficient reason
why the stability of the triple alliance should
be shaken.

Second 'Annual Reportlon Cottage Hospital.
.December 81.1, 1895.
SThe Ladies'- Committee submit this, their
second annualReport on the working and ex.
penditure of the Cottage Hospital.
PatIents were admitted first on Hospital Sun-
ft arch 11th, 1894, and from that date to
December 81st, 1894, eight patients were treated
in the Hospital, and nurses were supplied to
twenty-three cases outside- the Hospital-mak-
ing n all thirty-one cases. The expenditure
Oetalled in our last Report amounted to 13 10,'
the receipts for that-year being 237 16 7, leav-
ing a halanop on hand of 54 15 9.
.During the present year twenty-four cases,
(ten surgical, and fourteen medical), have been
treated in the Hospital-two of which are still
in Hospital; twenty have been discharged, and
two died-of these, sixteen are non-residents,
and eight were Bermudians. Twenty-five cases
have been cared for by the nurses outside the
Hospital, of which, six were maternity, nine
medical, and ten surgical cases, making a total
of forty-nine.

ture and receipts up to date :--

Although the expenditure has exceeded the
receipts for the year, it must be borne in mind
that three times the number of patients have
been treated in the Hospital, at comparatively
ass expense, which proves (as we brought before
.the public last year) how necessary it is to en-
large the Hospital in order to run it a more
economical scale to.enable us to admit more
cases at one time, and also to provide a kitchen
and comfortable room for the nurse.
Not later than April, 1896, a new Ward will
be begun with the funds in hand, (165 11 7j),
but as this will not complete the building, the
committee trust this appeal will bring sufficient
subscriptions to finish and furnish the addition.

It ws ian 1816 that Pasteur took up the invest.
gatio of the'iilk worm disease, in response to a
request from his old master M. Dumas. Up to this
mhe Pastetr had never handled a silkworm, but
heot to work on the problem with his usual
aistaking enthusiasm. In point of fact Buffon's
eiftion of genius, completely fits Pasteur's case,
viz : "an infinite capacity for taking pains." His
WMk9iMj~Am cend oq the silkworm farms at Alais,
determined in his own mind to do what he could
re thja industry to his mother, France, for
ir4 almost disappeared as a remunerative pursuit.
The diese was known as pebrine, from the "pep-
pered look of the silkworm while under its bane.

attention to certain small corpuscles, as they were
called, and these soon engaged all his attention.
The Italians had even proposed to examine the silk-
worm eggs under the microscope that only those in
which these corpuscles were absent would be allow-
ed to hatch, so near and yet so far were they from
the solution of this knotty problem. Pasteur found
these corpuscles present in the egg, the worm, the
chrysalis, and the moth. So minute however were
they, that sometimes they could not be discovered
in the earlier stages of existence, and so complicat-
ed the problem. Food given, with the corpuscles
placed upon it, invariably resulted in the worm
obtaining the disease. Year after year Pasteur
renewed the attack on this serious matter. His
wife and daughter became silk farmers that they
might assist. The result of all these tedious Ia-
bours was that a remedy was found and a simple
one. Here it is : as soon as the moths have paired
they are set apart, each pair on a small piece of
linen. As soon as the female lays her eggs she is
pinned by the wings to the cloth, where she is al-
lowed to dry, and afterwards critically examined
during the leisure season of the culturist, by means
of the microscope. If corpuscles are present, the
moths and all the eggs are destroyed. If no cor-
puscles are found, the eggs are kept for use the
following season. Thus only healthy worms, are
used and the disease is controlled.
All this engrossing work, done mainly in artifi
tally heated rooms, told severely on Pasteur's
health, and he broke down under the strain, so that
at the age of forty-five he was stricken with par-
alysis. Next year saw him at work, however,
principally at the Villa Vinceritina, near ''Trieste,
on a farm belonging to the Prince Imperial.
This farm had not paid for ten years. With
Pasteur at its head, this farm produced a profit
of more' than 1,000,000 sterling. Up to
this time no attention had been paid to his discov-
eries by the silk farmers of France, but to make
such a sum of money was too much of an argu-
ment for the thrifty and stolid farmer, and all
opposition ceased. The nations of Europe inter-
ested at all in silk culture maintain Pasteur
laboratories, where healthy worms may be had,
and farmers can have theirs examined. The
Franco-Prussian War now suspended all scien-
tific work, but, as soon as it was over, the long-
ing for scientific investigation returned and we
find him again at work studying the diseases of
beer, desirous as ever of adding to the industries
of his beloved France. The diseases of beer ho
found were produced by lactic, butyric, and other
ferments that found their way into the beer while
under the process of brewing. He cured this by
obtaining pure yeast cultures that improved the
process of fermentation. The beer was also "pas-
teurized by being heated in a bottle to a certain
definite temperature thereby killing spores acci-
dentally admitted. These discoveries rendered
beer-making a purely scientific occupation and is
now carried to a great degree of perfection, more
especially by Hansen, of Copenhagen, and his
school. These studies of beer-making did not oc.
cupy Pasteur long. He had previously, though
in no sense a physician, called attention to the
fermentation set up in the urine in diseases of the
bladder and shewed how it might be arrested by
the injection of boracic acid. M. Guvon, who first
followed this suggestion, achieved marvellous suc-
cess. This induced him to extend his researches
to the domain of biology where he was destined to
work a revolution in the study and treatment of
At this time Prof. Lister, (now Sir Joseph), an-
nounced to M. Pasteur' the entire success of the
antiseptic treatment of wounds, as a result of the
investigations on fermentations conducted by Pas
teur with an entirely different object in view.
As a result the anthrax was taken up, a disease
that had up to this period played havoc with do-
mestic animals. Rayer, Devaine and Koch had
been engaged on the problem, and had, to a cer-
tain extent worked up the life history of the bacil-
lus anthacis. Pasteur soon found that fowls were
not readily subject to this bacillus, and the reason
he found to be in the high temperature maintained
in the fowl's body. This clue he worked upon un.
ceasingly. At a temperature of 440 Centigrade,
the bacillus was totally destroyed. As the tem-
perature of the fowl is about 420 Cent. it was easy
to see why the fowl resisted the destroyer so well.
A hen was now inoculated with the bacillus antha.
ois and her feet kept in water at 25 o C. which
reduced the temperature of the hen to that of the
human body. The result waq that at the end of
twenty-four hours the hen died, with its blood full
of splenic bacteria. This is now a classical exper.
iment. He also initiated an experiment designed
to work in an opposite direction While a hen
was under the cold water treatment, and when it
seemed the fever was at its height, the hen was
taken out of the cold water, wrapped in cotton,
and put in an oven at a temperature of 85 o 0.
In a few hours the hen was well and when killed
and examined shewed no trace of the deadly mi-
crobe. Along with these experiments he inves.
tigated the fowl cholera. Pasteur got some of
the cholera bacillus to grow in alkaline chicken
broth. The one-thousandth part of a drop in-
jected under the skin of a fowl would cause it
to die of cholera. He discovered, also, that by
growing new cultivations in the chicken broth
every twenty-four hours, the cholera bacillus grew
weaker, and if injected into the hen did not kill
it, or took a long time to do it in case it did.
By keeping the cholera virus for three months
where the air might have access to it, yet not dust,
Pasteur found that when injected into a fowl, the
effect of the cholera was greatly reduced iu vio-.
lence and did not kill when so introduced, besides,
it did not reproduce itself. Now after having
recovered from this first inoculation, the fowl
was ready to receive an innoculation of the cholera
virus at full strength, being enabled to resist this
second attack by the immunity obtained on the
first attack. Henceforth the fowl is immune
against any further attacks of cholera. The
results of these experiments were eagerly read of by
scientific men everywhere and thezr most extra-
ordinary importance was readily seen. If Pas-
teur was able thus to combat fowl cholera and




anthax, why not other diseases, was the thought
that flashed over the minds of scientific men. X.
Bouley, before the Academy of Sciences, said,
" it is but the beginning." So it was, and we are
far from the end.
Pasteur also worked on the swine fever with
methods similar to the above, making further dis-
coveries, one of which was important, that the
swine fever when propagated through several
generations of pigeons became more virulent than
before. Hydrophobia was next studied. Inno-
culation with saliva failed. So did innoculation
with blood drawn from a rabid dog. Eerebro-
spinal fluid had better results. Rabbits were
used to experiment on, and these he found when
dead for some time, contained a virus less strong
than that contained in the live dog.
Dogs innoculated with the weak rabbit virus
were made proof against the attacks of rabies.
The first human being operated upon was a little
boy, Joseph Meister, nine years of age, who had
been bitten by a dog proved to have been rabid.
I use this term rabid, as a mad dog may not be
suffering from hydrophobia at all. After consult-
ing with Profs. Vulpian and Grancher who agreed
to share the responsibility, Pasteur, in a manner
similar to that appliedto dogs and monkeys, pro-
ceeded to innooulate the boy, as the lad could not
have survived anyway.' The operation was entire
ly successful, and soon the newspapers proclaimed
the fact throughout oulr globe. This operation is
not always successful, the problem presenting
many difficulties. Pasteur worked on hydropho-
bia and diphtheria toxins till his death. Behring,
a German, found the diphtheria anti-toxin before
him by his methods, however, and Rons, a disciple
close to his master, amplified the discovery that
has robbed diphtheria of its terrors. Dr. Roux
attended Pasteur at his last illness, the great man
dying Sept. 29th last.
The best estimate of his life and labours is to be
found in the address of Sir Joseph Lister on pre-
senting to Pasteur a g6ld medal on his 70th birth-
day. He said:-
There is certainly not in the whole world a
single person to whom 'medical science is more in-
debted than to you. 'our researches on fermenta-
tion have thrown a flood of light, which illuminat-
ed the gloomy shades of surgery, and changed the
treatment of wounds from a matter of doubtful,
and too often disastrous empiricism, into a scienti-
fic art, certain and beneficient. Owing to you,
surgery has undergone a complete revolution. It
has been stripped of its terrors, and its efficiency
has been almost unlimitedly enlarged. But medi-
'ine owes as much to your profound and philosophic
studies as surgery. You have raised the veil
that for centuries had covered infectious diseases.
You have discovered and proved their microbic
nature ; and thanks to your initiation and in many
cases to your own special labour, there are
already a host of these destructive diseases of which
we now completely know the causes. This know-
ledge has already perfected in a surprising fashion
the diagnosis of certain plagues of the human race,
and has marked out the course which must be fol-
lowed in their prophyl-,tic and curative treatment.
Medicine and surgery are eager on this great occa-
sion to offer you the profound how age of their ad-
miration and their gratitude."
Sir Joseph Lister uttered those words before an
audience composed of the world's leading scientific
men, who had gathered together to shew their
gratitude and admiration for the man of science.
While a Prof. of Strasburg University he married
the daughter of the rector of that institution ; she
survived him. Their son is in the diplomatic ser-
vice of France, and the only surviving daughter,
Afadame Valery Radot, is the wife of the bi-
Prof. Huxley estimated the monetary value of
Pasteur's services to France as more than the in-
demnity paid by France to Germany (200,000,000)
in 1871 but it is far too soon to estimate the value
of such services, and certainly no amount of money
can measure the humanity of his work. Like all
truly scientific men, he made no effort to gaia
money, but he had no time to waste on such effort.
The French people it, that his labours were
not interrupted for lack of funds. A paternal
government allowed him a large pension and wh n
more laboratories were required, Paris eagerly
subscribed the wherewithal, for rich and poor
alike believed in Pasteur and delighted to assist
him. The great Institute in Paris honoured with
his name is all the monument needed to proclaim
his worth and the lesser institutions radiating from
this one, their mother, in Berlin, Vienna, London,,
New York, St. Petersburg, and elsewhere serve to
remind forgetful men that they must revere the
name, Pasteur.
