BIG EYES- AND NO EYES. " The absence of sunlight, the tremendous pressure of the water at such depths, and its -uiet stillness are the causes which nmake the rastphysiological diBfferences between the fish it the bottom of the sea and those near the iurface, with which we are meat familiar,"re marked a prominent scientific man to a re porter for the New York MIail. " Msany of the mostwonderful peculiarities of the deep sea fish are due to the absence of sunlight." he continued, " and some of them are totally blind, being absolutely without eyes, orhaving only radimentary ones, like those which are seen in ish which inhabit the streams of caves where the sun never shines. On the other hand, there are some varieties which have eyes of abnormal size in order that they may collect all the rays of light that penetrate the deep. Experiments show that thelightof the sun cannot penetrate the water beyond a depth of about 200 fathoms, and that just beyond thatdepth the light is but a faint g...

POISONING THE VOLGA. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 17 August 1894

POISONING THE VOLGA. DFR. GRL'IM , the learned naturalisthas L proved by investigations that the waters of the river Volga, which annually yield fish to the value of twenty million roubles, are being poisoned by naphtha which is carried on the river.min enormous and constantly increasing?.qnantities. The greater part of it is-transported in leaky tubs and vessels ao..that a large percentage of naphtha,is. lost in..the river. From careful calculations made by',Dr. Grimmitappears that during the years 1887 1888 and 1889, the Volga received a quantity of naphtha.equal to 30,000 tons in weight, not including the petroleum, of which a large quantity is also carried on the Volga, with a ccrre ponding los.froni leakage. It is very noticeable that the fish are not so numerous as formerly ;and in those places where a halt is made.the fish have almost disappeared. A few species of fish seem, to. have adapted themselves. to circumstances and taken a liking to the taste of naphtha and petroleum...

He was taken there in 1885, between which year and lb91-six years-ihe only had thirty-four meals. He has therefore, on an-average-had less than six meals per annum;. in 1887 he was rather more hun gry, for he -was fed seven times, but-per haps this was due to the fact thatsheonly had four dinners in 1886. The food of this anaconda is usuallva small goat, on three occasions he.has acceptedrabbits, andhe once condescended to deWiuira goose. He is rather particular about what.he eats. I...
