Microbe." and Digestion Whether thf microbes which are onstanUypruMN •a the intestinal canal of man and animals an essentially necessary to promote digestion, an harmless and unnecessary, or are even injurious, is a question on which various observers have arrived at different results. In a paper communicated to the Bullttin of the Imperial Naturalists' Society of Moscow, Mile. P. V. Tsiklinsky discusses thll auestion. From an examination 01 the literature of lie subject, and from a study of the microbe don 1e question, the author is led to believe that, I Irbile certain microbes do undoubtedly promote iigestiou* and, in accordance with M. Metennikoff'i tbservations, in some cases exercise an antagonistic Influence against germs of disease, it is probably possible, by artificial means, such as by variation 8f diet, to dispense with the bacteria in question, and thus to avoid the danger that they often cauM In the living animal. Further, the view is put forward that the thermophilous microbes of the Intestinal canal Are mere varieties of ordinary aon thermophilous microbes, and not distimrf species.
Terrestrial Oases In the Chromosphere. Owing to their proved relationship to helium; Professor S. A. Mitchell, of Columbia University, Suspected that the gases neon, argon, krypton, and ftenon might be found to exist in the chromosphere, and in order to test his supposition he compared tht Wave lengths of the lines in their respective tpectra with the wave-lengths of the chromosphork spectrum obtained by himself during the Sumatrt tclipse. As a result of his comparison Professoi Mitchell comes to the conclusion that lines due tf aeon and argon are present in the chromosphere spectrum, but the evidence as to the presence of krypton and xenon is, at present, inconclusive, lines which are due to the more volatile glxes 01 the earth's atmosphere (i.e., those which are un- eondensed at the temperature of liquid hydrogen), 4w published by Liveing and Dewar, and till Strongest argon lines, are also represented in the spectrum of the chromosphere. Professor Mitchell suggests that these gases may have come to tlM sartn's atmosphere from the sun, as suggested In lbs theory i>ut forward by Arrhenms, which sup* pests that ionised particles are constantly being npolfd by the pressure of light, and tttMn joumi IWB ens 188 to wotbat.
