Anthropology at Dorpat in 1863 and 1864.
His princijal work is "Die Grundziige der
wissenschaftlichen Botanik " ("The Prin-
ciples of Scientific Botany ").

M. Pasteur has reported the complete
success of the experiments which he has
been carrying on on a large scale at a farm
near Melun, France, in vaccination against
carbonaceous diseases ; and he believes that
he has obtained a process by means of which
sheep and cattle can be made wholly secure
against this most dangerous and destructive
class of maladies.

The report of Professor Abel on col-
liery explosions confirms the theory that
coal-dust is an important factor in them.
A mixture of coal-dust and air is not explo-
sive, but if a quantity of fire-damp, which,
mixed merely with air, would be harmless,
is also present, a highly explosive atmos-
phere is produced. "Professor Abel's ex-
periments show that any kind of dust mixed
with air, containing a small quantity of fire-
damp, converts the mixture into an explo-
sive compound.
