An IntrlllKlblx I'apar uo an Abstruse Subject—A Visit to the Laboratory of a Itacteriotntrtstamt What Is Seen Thero. [dv a iith pr joiinston.] In offering the following remarks it ia not the intention of the writer to poae as a scientist, hut only to discuss in familiar language a subject which must be of interest to every living soul, since it bears Buch close relation to the wel fare of tho human race. Though tlieterm "microbe" ib "himil : iar iv onr moutha as household words," ; there isacur one lack of knowledge of the ! trim nature of thia organism, not only with I those of the general public, otherwise ■<t ell informed, but even among writers ' who venture to assume tbe role of in structors. | Ol tl:e truth of this statement the pc- i I rusal of articles dealing with thia sub j ject, which periodically appear in print, i ! will give sufficient assurance. Kepe- j | cially I would call attention to a paper originally published in the San Fran utaco Call, hut reproduced in last Sun day's HkrALD, entitled Why People Go Blind, and which is the inciting cause ol these observations. Speaking oi tho prevalence of diseases of the eye, the writer says: "It appears that from 25 to 40 per cent of the cases of blindness In this country are due to tbe malignant action of a minute microbe which physicians call a eocene," and he learnedly continues : "This mi crobe ii fometiiiies described aB a plant and aometimea aa an insect!" This preposterous definition oi a mi crococcus, Which, by the way, is proba bly that known by ttie name of the "Dipplococcnn of Trachoma," would be about parolleled by a relerence to a po tato as a vegetable tnat is aometimea de scribed aa a tree aud sometimes aa a bird. It ie concsivoble that in the comae of time evolution might convert the latter into a giant of the forest, but tbat a micrococcus could ever become an in sect ia no more possible than it would be for the potato to become a pi-acock—it is not built that way. What, then, are these microbes, or bacteria, as most scientists prefer to call tbem ? Come with tne to the laboratory of a bacteriologist aud let us see if what we observe there will afford any ciue to the mystery. Aa we enter tbe room nnd look around we see tbat it is furuished witii several tables and well filled shelves, besides other paraphernalia, the nature anduee of which we do not recognize. The first prominent object that engages our at tention is au iron tank resting on a tri- I pod, under which ia a gaa jet. It lookß ! like a boiler, and iv fact it is a boiler, though it is called a "sterilizer." Iv ; thia kettle are boiled, or rather steamed I —for the water does not touch them — tbe tubes and the culture material tbey I contain. This "culture" material is j simply a broth or a jelly made of beef or I potatoes, or any other animal or vegeta ble matter which may happen to please I the fastidious, taete of that particular j microbe which is intended to be experi mented with, and which will be aubse ; quently introduced into the tube, In the meanwhile—by means of thia ' boiling—any obtrueive microbes, that may have surreptitiously obtained ac , ceee, are reduced to "innocuoua diaue tude." Glancing at the shelves we ace hun dreds of these tubea which are made of glass, placed in bunches of a dozen or ao, in common tumblerß or iv stands ea pecia.ly made to hold them. They are shaped exactly like the tubes ueed to keep fresh the button-hole bcuquete i worn by the aesthetic youth of ourcities, i only larger. They are each plugged inch or so above the top aud serves to | exclude, not the air, but any organized bodies that the air may contain. Though " there rony be clouds of bacteria floating in the room none can pass ttie charmed barrier of me cotton plug. Thus i iie lv :.ks are kepi free from any kind of microbes, except those espe cially intended to be cultivated. Each of these tubes then coniuins its own particular species, the came of which is j written on tiie label pasted on the out- I side. It may be that of Asiatic cholera, ' diphtheria, typhoid or tuberculonis, or it may contain one of those Bpecies of bacteria which are harmless or even beneficial to mankind, such as the "bacillus butyrioua" and allied specieß, without which many of us would have to go on short commons, for without the help of these bacteria, churn we'never so wisely, the golden lumps would be very backward in making their appear ance, and our cheese would be uneat able. It ia not necessary here to discuss the method by which theee several epecies are obtained and introduced into these tubea; it ia enough to say that each in dividual apeciea is carefully separated from the iubbb of animal or vegetable matter that may surround it, and from any other Bpecies that may accompany it, and, while being thus kept isolated, iB introduced into the tube which con tains the food ou winch it thriveß best, and which, aa already mentioued, is free from any organism, of whatsoever kind. What ia tbat strange-looking instru ment on the table over there by the wall which supports that heavy-looking knife? " - Do not feel its edge to find out whether or not it is sharp—take the iact for granted, or you may chance to stand in need of gome aticking-plaeter before you leave. That ia a "micro tome" and h ueed to pare off thin llakea from any animal or vegetable material which it may be deßirable to examine in search of bacteria, or for any other rea son. We cannot take time to investigate this machine any further; we may stay long enough, however, to be informed that it iB capable of cutting sections bo thin that 1000 oi them, piled one on top of the other, would not attain the height of a quarter ot an inch. Now we approach the table on which rests the main object of our visit —the microscope—that wonderful instrument tbat has opened a new universe to the observation of mankind. On the Btand, directly under the tube through which we shall presently look, you will observe a rectangular piece of glass, about oue inch by ttiree, aud upon that again another little piece of glass which in round and very thin. Theße are the Hlido and the cover-glaBS. Between the two you will notice a emear such as ia produced by the preeeure of a dirty thumb ou a window pane. This ia a drop taken from the culture-tube, and cont.ins the microbes which, we are about to examine. Shut the eye, or cover it with tbe hand, ant' apply the other eye to the tube of the fnntrument—lor unless you erf an rxpHriiUced niicroecopiet you will not beTWe to see anything plainly with both eyes open. Now what do you lee ? A circular space, or "field," as it ia called, which ia evidently illuminated from below, for everything therein ap pears transparent, occupied by iome brown medium, which containa at Inter vals more or leas great what at first eight might be taken for a<r bubblet. Some of them are round and come slightly oval, some isolated nnd come grouped together in cluatera, others have the appearance of chains or strings of pearls. They appear to be about tbe t\zi of the head of a very amall pin, but they are magnified 1000 diameters— that ia to say that if 100 of them were placed aide by aide tbe whole of tbem would be as wide aa one of tbem ap pears when seen through tbe micro scope. These bubbles are the atrepto cocci of diphtheria, one of the organ isuit that if auppoied to give riao to that d Irate. Now move fhe *lidi gently along the stand on which • ' rests and you will ace many more '! I nene microbes, for thia field which j' i Ii iva been examining is really 1 only a wy inlnnjo part of the drop under tl,.■ « v.-r cluM. [(you were remain long enough, and the cond una were favorable yon might ba an r to observe ttieir method of propagation. At first you would nee the round bod ies become n ir« elongated, then there would be formed » depression in the middle, eaoaing them to assume the shape of n hour glass, when they would either pait Irom each other and form Beparnie urguniaina, each perfect in it self, the process to be repeated again and ai;ain, or they would still hold to gether and form a chain such as waa be fore referred to. If thia process were uninterrupted, in a few days' time the progeny of one bac terium would form a nuns as big as a church, but this can not be, for food supply ia necessary for their propaga tion, ami food (apply is limited. Oth erwise there would tie no room on the face of tha earth for mankind and otber animala, We are accustomed to refer to a cloud of locustß, to symbolize the devastating power. But give one healthy microbe a fair field and pleutv of food, and all the graßnhoppera that Kansas ever produced would simply not be "In it" with him. Remove the elide you have been ex amining and replace it with another from the table. What you now see differs materially from the last. They look for all tiie world like drum sticks, a little short ened, but still drum sticks. This Is tbe "bacillus tetanus," and ia the cause of lock-jaw. The bulge at the end contains the ''spore," which for want ol a better comparison, may be likened to the egg or need of the organism—for whereas the "micrococi," or round bacteria, only propagate by splitting themselves into two, and not by spores, the "bacillus," or long kind uaa both methods. Take another glide. Theee too are "bacilli," and are shaped something like sausages, appearing both singly and in chaine, such as are to be seen hang ing in butchers' shops. Those are the "bacilli anthracis" which are tbe causa of anthrax in cattle and the "wool Bon ers disease" in human beings. For a laat look we will take thia slide on which the cover glaaa has been ce mented and the contents of which look dry and hard. Here weaee a greatnum ber of ill-defined little twisted rods, which have a general resemblance to the comma mark, euch aa those used in this newspaper. From this likeness they were named the "comma bacilli" by the celebrated Herman scientist, Dr. Koch, for they are tbe much talked of microbes of the Asiatic cholera. It is perhapß as well to remark that it is not universally admitted among scientists that they are tbe cause of that dread disease—in any case you need not be afraid of them here, they are all dead—still it is well to leave the cover glass intact. Let us pause awhile before leaving and ask ourselves what our investigation has taught us regarding the nature of theee organisms, oi which we bave been such interested observers. We are obliged to answer—not much. They are like noth ing with which we have had any pre vious acquaintance and we are tempted to dismisa the aubject in the worda of the Scottish captain : "The earth hath hubblesas the water has, And these are of them." \\b believe them to be living beings, for we have seen them move and repro duce themselves, but aa to what king dom they belong we are entirely with out tbe means of judging. Fortunately we are not obliged to de pend upon our own inveatigation for in formation on the aubject. Many emi nent men of acience have, during the last generation, devoted their whole energy to tbe eolutrbn of this problem, and the result maybe learned by the study of any ono of several excellent books on thia subject, written by cele brated bacteriologists. They are not and never can becorse animals —to describe them aa insects being the very quintessence of absurdity —plants they are, in a cense, that is, if iv tho courße of evolution, by the abro gation of cells, they become more highly organized, they will he plants and will belong to the fungus or mushroom family. Though the particular organism which i we have been examining are disease bringers. tbie ia by no means the case with all species of bacteria. Some, moat of them in fact, are active ly beneficial. Without tbem mankind could not long continue to exist. These harmless species are called non-path o genic, in contradistinction to the patho genic, or disease breeders. Out of about 600 known to Bcience but very lew are ' tbe cause of disease in mankind. The reet are nature's scavengers, and their use ia to break down all dead matter that would otherwise cumber the earJJ), 1 aud make it fit to be used over again as food for the living. Without them highly organized life would soon ceaee to exist on the earth for want of suste nance. * Bacteria pervades the universe. They lurk innumerable iv the noil henentht our leet. They are immersed within the depths of the waters. They float in imperceptible clouds in the air. We absorb them with the food we eat, with tbe water we drink and with the air we breathe. They accompany us into the world when we are born and attend ue to the grave when we die. And, beet boon of all, they convert our uaelesß bodieß, when we have cast them off, into material fitted to be used iv building up other, and let us hope, higher organ isms. The poor clay that formed man's body during his little span of life is thus metamorphosed: "Of his bones are coral made. Those are noni'ls thm, were lita eyes, Nothing ot him that doth fade, Hut Onto suiter a sett change, 1 nto something rich and strange)." i Thanks, to bacteria.
