Pit <wplioretfcem: Pacterla. At a meeting of the Academy of Sciences at Henna, Professor Molisch, of Prague, communi- cated a paper upon phosphoresceut bacteria. He has been able to photograph the colon'es of a phosphorescent micrococcus by means of its owt tight. By inoculating large glass flasks of 1-2 litres capacity containing a suitable culture medium with the organisms, a "bacterial lamp" is obtained with which it is quite possible for an observer at a distance on one to two metres to read a thermometer or to see the time of a watch. On a dark night the "bacterial lamp" is visible at a distance of more than sixty paces. It is suggested that such cultures Af phosphors v-nt bacteria might be employed in powder magazines, or for attracting fish, as the flask might be sealed up and lowered into the water. Under suitable conditions the phosphorescent properties cf the cultures last for two or thaw weeks.
