MICROSCOPICAL NOTES.


By E. G. Grahn, M. D.


List of Microscopical forms of life found in the water in the neighborhood of Brookville and Cedar Grove, Franklin County, Indiana. Cedar Grove is a small town six miles southeast of Brookville. The locations referred to herein as Butler's Run and Pulp Mill are just north of the limits of the Town of Brookville; and Mill Pond is within the southern limit of the same Town. The specimens referred to as taken at Cedar Grove are from Ramsey's Creek near that Town.
The water in which these forms were found was taken during the past winter at the time of a thaw.
I desire to acknowledge the assistance of Prof. D. S. Kellicott and Mr. J. W. Ward, of Buffalo, N. Y., in the identification of many of the species of diatoms. Since these gentlemen did not furnish the names of authorities referred to, I have simply appended their initials to such forms as were identified with their assistance. All doubtful species are designated in the usual way.
