At the Geological Society's meeting in
London last April Prof. II. G. Seeley ex
hibited the upper bone of the leg, or
paddle, of a plesiosaurus which had
been almost completely turned Into
opal, the mineral having replaced the
ubsiaiu-e of the bono. Ihe fossil was
found in an opal mine in .New .sou in
Wales. The plesiosaurus was a long

It Is said that lightning may be recog
nized at a distance of two hundred
miles when the clouds among which it
plays are at a high altitude, but that
thunder can seldom be heard at a great
or distance than ten miles. The sound
of thunder Is also subject to refraction
by layers of different density in the at
musnhere, as well as to the effects of
"sound shadows," produced by hills i
and other Interposed objects. These are
among the reasons for the existence of
ihe so-called "sheet," or "summer,"
lightning, which seems to be unattend
ed by thunder.
Dr. J. II. Gladstone, discussing at the
