MEDICAL PROGRESS. Yellow Fever Germ. — A dispatch from Columbus, O., in the Baltimore Sun, says: " Professor H. J. Detmers, of the Ohio State University, has concluded the task of photographing the yellow fever germs that had been sent him by Dr. James E. Reeves, of Chattanooga, Tenn. The professor says this is the first time that yellow fever germs have been found in the tissue, scientists heretofore searching for them in vain. They have been found in zooglœa masses in the capillary blood-vessels, which appear distended and ruptured, and at these ruptures these zooglœa masses are dense and large. The bacilli present themselves in four forms; the first in a plain, dark, round mass; the second an oval, with a dark point at each extremity; the third, an oblong disc with dark points, as in the second, and fourth two darks united by a film, and strikingly resembling a dumb-bell.
