Fragments with German intertitles, probably from two or three quite distinct films, showing: -- (i) Various species of fly (Stubenfliegen house-flies), a fly juggles with a ball of dirt -- (ii) Microscopic slides of bacteria under magnification (including streptococci and staphyllocci) -- (iii) Horses (apparently in the context of their immunity to certain fly-borne infectious diseases). 3 segments.
