passage of an elcotrio current through
gold electrodes in a slightly acid.solu-
tion , the anode becomes coated with
hydroxie , and on subsequently connect
ing the electrodes to a seusative gal
vanometer , a current is indicated whoso
intensity varies with the light thrown
on the hydroxide. The variations de
pend upon the color as well as the in
tensity of the light. Under the electric
arc the difference in potential between
the plates has been as much as 0.1 volt ,
but the most striking fact is that dif
ferent parts of the spectrum , red and
violet , produce opposite currents , dif
fering in direction as well as in degree.
A peculiar breed of domesticated
sheep , having goat-like hornshas been
kept by natives of the Bunden Ober-
laud , Switzerland , and appears to have
been descended directly from the so-
called peat-sheep of the Swiss lake
dwellings. Alarm is now felt at the
present scarcity of the animals. The
breed is already nearly exterminated
through crossing , and another in
teresting type of animal life will have
disappeared in a few years unless
steps are taken to preserve it.
The blue and green colors of frogs ,
lizards , certain fishes and other verte
brates have been investigated by two
French biologists. A black pigment
causes the blue color by what Pouchet
called " cerulescence , " or kind of
fluorescence , and the green color is
due to a mixture of black and yellow
pigments. The colored skins seem to
serve as sieves for separating iiseful
and harmful light. The useful red
heat rays are allowed to pass , but the
violet and ultra-violet , which induce
skin disease or other ill effects , are re
The terrestrial mammals of North
America were found by Prof. Baird in
1857 to number 220 species , not in
cluding the bats. The later tendency
has been to make more divisions , and ,
with new discoveries and the addition
of marine forms , Mr. D. G. Elliott's
1901 list gives 628 species , be sides 808
subspecies. The rodents have in
creased from 180 species to 880 species
and 255 subspecies ; the iusectivores ,
from 26 species to 47 species and 3
subspecies. There are now recognized
seven species of reindeer , four or five
of Rocky Mountain sheep , nine species
and three subspecies of bears , and not
less than 20 species and 4 subspecies
of skunks.
