Abstract

Growth in citrate broth was turbid, rusty brown in color with some slime formation. The glucose broth had a milky white color with pronounced slime accumulation. Cells grown on the citrate medium were uniformly spaced within the sheath and ranged from 1 to 4 μ in length and 1 to 2 μ in width. The sheath was uniform in shape and ranged from 2.0 to 2.5 μ in width in young cultures. Sheath irregularities began to appear by the third day and were the greatest, 1 to 12 μ, by the fifth day when they gave the appearance of disintegrating. Cells grown on the glucose medium had clear intracellular structures and ranged from 2.5 to 6.0 μ in length, 1.0 to 2.5 μ in width with the sheath ranging from 1.5 to 3.5 μ.
