A Concord correspondent of the
Charlotte Observer says: It was both
gratifying and amusing to sea the
pleasant faces of the good old farmers
on the btreets Thursday, nearly all of
whom had cotton which broaght good
prices, reaching ns high as8 1-4o. Ia
conversation with Feveral sellers of the
staple I learned that 8 cents was really
more than they expected to get, and
that they were pleased and greatly en
couraged by the advance. Some peo
ple will hold their cotton for 10 cents,
as that nofh is expected to be reached
before many weeks.

LOUIS PASlKLli DF.AD.
Career of the (ireat French Chemist
and I'll ysieian.
Prof. Louis Pasteur, the distinguished
chemi-t and discoverer of tho Pa-steur treat
ment for the cure of rabies, died in Taris
S itur-lay. His death was caused by paralysis.
Louis Pasteur was t-orn at Dole, Jura
December 27, 1S22, where his father, aa eld,
soldier of tho ilrst Empire, followed tho bus
iness of a tanner.
Young Pasteur entered the Ecole Normaho
la 1813, took the degree of doctor iu 1817,
and was appointed assistant professor ol
physieg at Sirusl-urg in Ho had al
ready begun to devote himself to chemistry
and had also become a j-rolicient in molecular
physios. In 1S51 herein oved to Lille as dean
of tho faculty of sciences. Tho staple indus
try of tho town was distilling and, in view of
this fact, whilo still an enthusiast in molecu
lar physics ho devoted some of his lectures to
to the subject of fermentation. During the
next few years spontaneous generation, wine,
vinegar, the siii worm disease, splenic fever,
chlekenpox, cholera and hydrophobia re
ceived his attention. But his discovery that
an attenuated virus of the eplenic fevej
(wool sorter's disease) If used as lnooulatlng
matter, could produce so mild a form ol thia
plague that it protected the animals from a
mere severe attack and he saved millions to
His discovery that inoculating a person
bitten by a mad dog with an attenuated virus
of the person produciagrabbies, acts in such
a way that tho original poison seems neu
tralised and the patient recovers, has almost
revolutionized ono section of medicine.
The Royal Society of Lonuon awarded
Pasteur the IJumford medal In 1856 for his
his researches relative to the polarization of
light, cel. lie received the decoration of the
Legion of Honor, and in 1S7S he became a
grand officer of that order. He was received
iuto the Trench Academv in 1832 as successor
to M. Lit! re.
In 1'J2 the cholera epidemic led M. Tasteur
to mate experiments in anti-choleraic vacci
nation whi'di wore successful in the case of
animals. A largo hospital and laboratory
for the treatment of hyurophobia under the
Tasteur system was erected in Paris by pub
lie subscription, the municipality of Paris al
so contributing to the fund. M. Pasteur re
e. ived nil honors, not only from his own.but
from many foreign count les. Orders, decoration-
and other honorary diplomas were
-ocb rred up-m him by almost every civil
ised eountry in tho worid.
In his.b-ath Trance loses one of tho great
est -.-ns she possessed, Judged by results. Ho
v. a-n-vt-r a theorist, such as Trof. Koch,
with his ly:upet for the FO-ealled cure of
eoiismnpuon. What Pasteur gave to the
world was always perfect in its own way, and
the results were never l"ss and frequently
more than he claimed. Eminently practical
in all his studies the real amount he contrib
uted to tho goo I of huoj-jnity is enormous,
merely ealculated from a money standpoint,
and yet Pa.-tcur dies with but a moderate for
tune". Put leaving a name second to none on
t roll of fame.
Prof. Huxley thought his achievements an
0'ial intcon--y value to the whole 5.000,000,
000 frncs indemnity paid to Germany on ac
count of the war of 1870.
