Sir J. Arthur Thomson, LL.D.: 'Pasteur — 1822―1895: Leader in the Conquest of Disease'
'WORK! ' was Pasteur's last word and his motto in life, and few have worked so hard or to such purpose. Pasteur rescued the French silk trade from ruin by his study of silk-worms, and discovered the cure for hydrophobia in men and rabies in dogs. Franco owes a tremendous debt to Pasteur's genius for applied research: the money value of his discoveries was estimated to exceed the whole war indemnity paid by France after the Franco-Prussian War of 1870. But he was content to remain poor, ' solving,' as he said, 'the problems of the world of the infinitely small.' Drinkers, incidentally, have particular reason to pause and thank Pasteur, for he applied himself so successfully to the study of fermentation and the diseases that affect wine and beer that he became virtually the father of modern brewing.

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by EDWARD CLARK
BETWEEN the production of Les Huguenots in 1836 and that of Le Prophète in 1849, Meyerbeer composed only one opera and some incidental music to his brother Michael's drama Struensee. As a matter of fact, ho was busy on other matters. He was, for example, a man of very kindly feelings towards his brother musicians. Weber thought a great deal of Meyerbeer, and the feeling was reciprocated. Meyerbeer, after Weber's death, did a great deal to get his operas produced in Germany, particularly at the Berlin Opera House, where he had been appointed Gonoralmusikdirektor. He had recently produced Eiiryanthe there, and his next big production was to bo Wagner's Rienzi. He had been both helpful and encouraging to Wagner during the latter's distressful days in Paris, and he was doing his best again to help him. Therefore ho was composing but little. This Overture, however, has always been considered the most successful of Meyerbeer's essays in sustained instrumental composition, and the wholo of the Struensee music is Meyerbeer at his best.
