Cruelty, Microscopy

    Relates an anecdote of a man who took his dislike of cruelty to what the narrator considered ridiculous lengths, refusing to kill mice and spiders. The narrator argued with him that on this principle the 'insect' responsible for the bloom on a plum or for fermenting vinegar should not be destroyed.
