    In an old petri dish, [Blank] observed that there was no [Blank] surrounding a piece of mold.  He tried to explain this, with the hypothesis that "Penicillium secretes a chemical that kills [Blank] bacteria.  He experimented this by having two identical flasks, each filled with [Blank].  He added bacteria to [Blank] flask(s).  In the first flask, he added a piece of [Blank], then removed it.  Fleming left the second alone.  At the end of the experiment, Fleming found that the first flask had no [Blank] because it was clear, while the second was [Blank] and contained [Blank].  From this, he was able to conclude that a chemical called [Blank] kills Staph. bacteria.
