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
| 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
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
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
Come with tne to the laboratory of a
bacteriologist aud let us see if what we
observe there will afford any ciue to the
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
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

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,

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

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
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

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

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
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

Though the particular organism which i

Some, moat of them in fact, are active

harmless species are called non-path o

Bacteria pervades the universe. They

the depths of the waters. They float in
imperceptible clouds in the air. We

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
