The Blue Germ

by Maurice Nicoll

Two scientists and would-be benefactors of humanity discover a germ which combats disease and decay and they introduce the bacillus into the water supply of a great city. Strange results follow such as an uncontrollable fear of physical violence, this being the only way by which man my now meet death, the cessation of all desire and the social confusion arising from the doing away with natural death. At length everyone is overcome by a drowsiness and after a seven days' sleep the inhabitants recover from the effect of the blue germ and welcome back the natural order of things.
