bronchial There are certain which exist sometimes in sometimes in changing their habitat in different periods of life or of the It in view of tho be comes interesting to soo how Bert applies his discovery to such apparent to tho general A fresh water for plunged ab ruptly in sea resists the effects longer than other fresh water fishes but he dies within five or six This according to that the fish never proceed suddenly from fresh to salt but enter brackish water where tho tide ebbs and and ivo there a sufficient time to habituate ilieinselvos to tho This oo jotintH for tho frequent discovery of urge numbers of tho migratory fish in the vicinity of tho mouths of rivers which they A fronh water plunged in salt wo docs not seem to bo But u investigating tho peculiarities of this species Bert was led into a wrong which may bo cited to show low easy it often by puro o reach an erroneous determination in aboratory After having limsclf placed several fresh water eels salt he as already that they remained alive and nu Wishing to continue tho ex he directed his assistant to ntroduco the fish and report To is tho eels then persistently lied after a three or four hours sojourn n

tho iftod them with a piece of cloth in bis The cloth rubbed off a little of le slime of tho which protected from the salt Osmosis then 3ccurrod in tho denuded and IB eel eventually The converse of inserting oa fish in fresh produced analo ons Tho gills were tho seat of tho same as those noted in resh water fish placed in salt Bert also observed that tho life of tho sea fish could be prolonged by adding salt to the fresh thus adding far ther confirmation to his PRINTING nXLOTOI OF A HAD It is no pleasure to a dog to go readf nl as hydrophobia is to the human rabies is worse to the It nakes
