452                 PATHOGENIC BACTERIA.

Czajrowski asserts that the bacillus can be cultivated
upon various albuminous media except gelatin and agar.
On glycerin agar-agar, especially with the addition of
hematogen, and on blood-serum, they should grow in
three or four days with an appearance like that of dew-
drops. Under the microscope the colonies are structure-
less. Mice die of a septicemia after a subcutaneous in-
oculation.

An interesting field for experimentation has been
opened by Behla/ who seems to have successfully inocu-
lated a sucking-pig with measles by introducing some of
the nasal secretion from a case of measles into the nose,
which had been prepared to receive it by scratching with
a wire.
