PAitls, Dec. I'll, 1885. The New
ark, children continue to receive
tlicir regular morning inoculation.
The rest of the dny they jihiy nliout,
nnd :ue nlrently verifying Al. 1'ns
tcur's i)re(iiction by getting fat.
"When they came to the laboratory
on Christmas morning, At. Pasteur
said to tliein, with a strong French
sicccnt, "1 wish you n merry Christ
mas." The children all burst out
laughing. AI. l'asteur then gavu
each of them a very small glass of
sweet. Muscalclle wine. All the
children have taken a great fancy
to Air. Pasteur. Young Fitzgerald
calls him "The Little Uuv'nor,"
and Hddic Ryan calls him "Papa."
dust before the inoculation this
morning, M. l'asteur showed me
through his laboiatory. AVc first
entered n small room. A wooden
table stood near the window, and on
the table were two large rabbits, one
while, the other gray. M. l'asteur
said: "Kvery day, two labbils have
to bo saciilleed, in older to obtain
virus tto inoculate the little chil
dren from Ncwarlc. To-day, tlicso
are the two victims." JI. Laer, Al.
Pasteur's nephew and principal as
sistant, then caught one of the lab
liits by the ears, took a pair of sharp
scissors and cut all the fur from the
top of the labbit's head. lie then
stretched the rabbit out Hat, belly
down, upon a square piece of wood.
The rabbit's feet were then tied,
with strong cord, to each corner of
the piece of wood. M. Laer then
sprinkled chloroform on a piece of
paper and held it to the rabbit's
nose until the animal became un
conscious, lie then took a very
sharp knife and made a slit about
an inch long through the skin of the
rabbit's head, just between the eyes.
The skin was then stretched apart
with pincers, and a soit of wedge of
silver wire was inserted, so as to
bold back the skin and to expose
the bare skull. With a delicately
constructed instrument, like a small
auger, M. Laer bored a hole light
through the animal's skull. Jnto
this hole M. Laer inserted a needle
like the point of a syringe, and in
jected into the rabbit's brain a solu
tion of virus prepared from the brain
of a mad dog. The syringe was then
withdrawn, and the wedge of silver
wire removed, the wound dressed,
the skin carefully sewed together,
and the rabbit was labelled with
date and quality of the inoculation
and put into a cage. In exactly six
days this rabbit will die of rabies,
and the Newark children will be in
oculated with the virus taken from
Its brain. Ry a scries of inoculations
aud reinoculations, 31. l'asteur can
obtain virus of any desired degree
of intensity. The strongest virus
that he uses in inoculations is that
which causes a rabbit to die of
rabies six days after inoculation;
the weakest virus is that which
causes a rabbit to die of rabies in M
In a small room, kept constantly
heated to the temperature of 35 de
grees centrigrade, and called the
"incubating room," M. l'asteur
keeps a supply of virus ready for
constant use. Each bulb is labelled
with numbers. The bulb bearing
No. 0 contains virus that will kill a
rabbit in six days; No. 7 kills a
rabbit in seven days ; No. 8 kills a
rabbit in eight days, and so on up
to No. 11.
The process of weakening the
virus was formerly accomplished by
successive inoculations of monkeys.
AI. l'asteur now attains the same re
sult by exposing the virus taken
from the brain of a mad rabbit in a
room illled with artilicially dried air,
called the incubation room. Each
day the virus thus exposed loses a
certain determinate portion of its
It should be clearly understood
that 31. l'asteur docs not pretend
to be able to cure cases where
rabies lias already declared itself,
nor to cure cases where an incuba
tion of virus has already taken
place. All that science can now do
is to prevent persons bitten by a
mad dog from dying of rabies, if
treated before the virus from the
liitc has had time to incubate. The
mayor of. Lozere telegraphed to 31.
l'asteur that a young man was
bitten 25 days ago by a mad dog,
and asked if M. l'asteur would treat
him. 31. l'asteur replied: "In the
bcicntilic interests of my method I
ought not to treat any one after the
lapse of 25 or 30 days after the
lute, but from u purely humanita
rian point of view I am resolved to
refuse no one." The young man
has now arrived in the laboratory
in the rue d' Ulm, and is penniless.
31. Pasteur is defraying his ex
penses out of his own pocket.
"When tho Newark children ar
rived on 3Ionday they were inocu
lated with the virus, warranted to
kill in 14 days. On Tuesday thoy
were inoculated with virus war
ranted to kill in 13 days. On Wod-

with 8-day virus, and so on until
they reeoivo tho todll'In-Mx-days'
virus, which latter may be repented
two or three days 'consecutively.
The treatment will then be finished,
and they can then go home lo
Newark. While 31. Pasteur was
superintending tho operation of tre
panning the" largo white rabbits,
Patsy Reynolds climbed up outside
the window and peeped in at the
rabbit, whistling "Vankee Doodle."
1 then went witii 31. Wassersuct,
one of 31. Pasteur's assistants, into
a cellar containing several hundred
rabbits, confined in separate cages,
most carefully and minutely labelled.
We stopped before u cage contain
ing u large yellow rabbit. 31. Was
seisiiut nuked : "Do you notice any
thing peculiar nboul that rabbit V" 1
said: "lie looks very sleepy. lie
twitches and qtiivois strangely, and
kicks out in an eccentric manner
with his hind legs." 31. Wasscr
suet said lie showed symptoms of
rabies on Christmas day, and will
die to-night. This yellow rabbit
now proves a fact of vital import
ance. You remember that, early in
December, a little girl that had been
inoculated at 31. Pasteur's labora
tory died of rabies. Very well; 31.
Pasteur made the following experi
ment, to determine whether the
little girl died from the effects of
the bite of a mad dog, or whether
she died from tho ell'eets of the
virus with which she had been in
oculated at this laboratory. Two
rabbits were taken. One of them,
tliis yellow one that you now see,
was inoculated 011 Dec. 5 with vims
taken directly from the brain of the
little girl that died of rabies. The
second rabbit was also, on Dec. 5,
inoculated with the same virus as
had been used in inoculating tho
little girl that died, that is to say,
with the to-kill-in-six-days-virus."
The second rabbit died in six days,
ns was, of course, expected, but
this yellow rabbit lived 20 days be
fore being seized with rabies, thus
conclusively proving that it was not
the incubated virus with which the
little girl had been inoculated that
caused her death, but that death
was caused by the bite of the mad
When I returned to the inoculat
ing room, where some 20 patients
were wailing to be inoculated, I
found 31. l'asteur looking very
much disappointed. He exclaimed :
"What reckless people there arc in
the world. You remember the ser
geant of tho Hungarian hussars who
arrived here the same day as the
Ncwaik children? Well, on Christ
mas eve lie went off on a most ter
rible spree. II got most abomina
bly intoxicated, and I had to send
people to make a tour of all the
drinking shops in Paris before he
could be found. lie says he lias
passed a most glorious Christmas,
but he has missed two days' inocu
lations, and made his treatment and
cure much more complicated."
After sympathizing witii 31. Pas
teur and deprecating the reckless
ness of the Hungarian hussar, I
took my departure. Cubic dcs

ltd The premiums on a Tontine po
licy are tho same as on tho Ordinary

able in the event of death, tho holder of
tho Tonlino policy has the right to draw
tho whole of the reserve and iho accu

stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years nie past,
ho can, without any larger premium
than on an ordinary policy, secure these

paid in cash on maturing Tontine po
