Bacteriology, in its relation to domestic science, should prove of interest to this class of students, especially in view of the fact that the yeasts and molds are discussed more fully than is customary in most texts. The book is divided into five sections: (1) "Morphology and Classification;" (2) "Cultivation and Observation of Micro-Organisms;" (3) "Physiology;" (4) "Fermatations;" (5) "Relationship of Micro-Organisms to Health." The last division, embrascing nearly half the book, deals the preparation and preservation of foods, household seantitation and personal hygiene, thus emphasizing rather forcibly that phase of bacteriology.
