Excerpt from Animal Activities: A First Book in Zoölogy The Rook here presented is the outgrowth of fifteen years 0 teaching the subject to large classes in a high school. Its aim is to interest and guide pupils in the study of living animals. Young people are usually ready to be made acquainted with their immediate neighbors in the animal world, and it is hoped that this book may be of assistance to them. In the choice and arrangement of topics the powers and interests of young students have been kept in view rather than the demands of strictly logical description and exposition. Chapter I outlines the animal kingdom in such a manner as to be useful for reference purposes._ Chapter II gives directions for assisting the student in procuring his own specimens for study. Chapter III describes the activities common to all animals. With Chapter IV work on the Arthropoda begins. Animals of this group are selected for the early part of the work because living specimens can be easily collected and observed in the fall, at which time Zoology is begun in most schools. After the study of the Arthropoda, the book follows the natural order, beginning with the simplest animals and ending with the most complex. In some schools it will doubtless be better to begin with Chapter XI, and study the Arthropoda directly after the chapter on The Earthworm This latter order of subjects is advised when the Zoology course begins in the winter or spring.

Excerpt from A Manual of Zoology John Hunter had lived and laboured: his vast ideas, his bril liant discoveries, his views, which seem more like inspirations than the natural result of an industry unsurpassed, lay buried in the hall of a corporate body with whom, as a surgeon, he was accidentally associated: but he had laboured in vain. His views he placed before the world in the form of a museum, to which none of the labours of men's hands can be compared - unless it be, and these no doubt excel, the handiwork of those who carved the Medicean Venus and the Belvidere Apollo. For never, I believe, at any period Of its history, was Zoology in a lower condition in Britain than that in which I found it when, returning from France, in the summer of 1825, I submitted to a small but select class an outline of those great views which France and Germany had taught me, and which I have continued to meditate and reflect on to the present day. Since that period the educa tional institutions of the country have become somewhat multiplied, perhaps improved. The pressure of continental Opinion has told on Britain, and ere long it is by no means improbable the sciences of simple observation may be deemed, if not equal in importance to those great branches of human knowledge wrapped up in the study of numbers and of lite rature, at least esteemed useful, practically calculated to expand the intellect - the first Object of all education.

Excerpt from Zoology of Colorado We who live in Colorado are exceptionally fortunate if we desire to understand the past. Several years ago an eminent geologist from Chicago was taken to the top of one of the Uni versity buildings. Looking about him, he remarked that it was possible to see more geology from this spot than in the whole state of Illinois. He referred to the variety of exposures, the diversity of the rocks, the contrasts in the topography, the number of different geological periods represented. When we travel over the State we find even greater diversities and contrasts so that, for example, one familiar only with the front range seems to have reached a new and unfamiliar world when he examines the mesas and canons of the western part of the country. One who has collected fossils in the numerous strata about Boulder, has an entirely new set of plants and animals revealed to him if he digs at Florissant or searches the rocks of the oil shale country. Not only have wonderfully rich deposits of fossils been found, but as yet the work of exploration is exceedingly incomplete, so that the adventurous naturalist may still make discoveries of first class importance. Indeed, it is not necessary to be a trained naturalist in order to do this. Though experience and judgment count for much.

Excerpt from The Zoologist, 1900, Vol. 4: A Monthly Journal of Natural History Of the contributors to our first number probably J. W. Douglas is now the only survivor. The aims and scope of the publication are precisely the same as in 1843 - bionomic primarily. In philosophy there is great change, but no new creed. It is undoubtedly the case that a naturalist may exist without being an evolutionist it is equally true that evolutionists can be found who are neither Lamarckians nor Darwinists and it is certain that Darwinists are to be found in plenty who are quite outside the school of neo-darwinism, and who have no desire to risk wrecking a great conception on speculative side issues. Hence the zoologist' welcomes all phases of thought, but stipulates for facts rather than theories, argument more than advocacy. All contributors may at least speculate on what our Journal may be made for the cause of Zoology during the next century. The summing up will then be in other hands.

Excerpt from The School, Vol. 25: Secondary Edition; December, 1936 It will be noted that in the general course of the first five months, almost all the subjects are common to the special courses. Business Practice was included because it was felt that this course contained important information about the keeping of simple accounts, public utilities such as electricity, gas and water, postal services, budgeting, investments, etc., valuable alike to professional man, accountant, plumber, and farmer. This course simplified the Arithmetic and Civics of later courses. Every pupil was given a try-out in French, in order that he might find whether he had an aptitude for language-study. The science consisted of the botany and zoology which are common to first year agriculture and the general science of vocational courses. In mathematics, the first three months were spent in a thorough review and drill on fundamentals Of Arithmetic. It was found that the student was in a much better position to understand Algebra when an introduction to this subject was made through the medium of Arithmetic. Word study included the use, origin, and spelling of words selected by several members of the teaching staff.

Excerpt from The Initiation of Development in Chaetopterus: A Dissertation Submitted to the Faculty of the Ogden Graduate School of Science in Candidacy for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Department of Zoology) Two methods of attacking the problem were employed, - the first, that of inducing artificial parthenogenesis, - the second, that of combining fertilization and artificial parthenogenesis. No investigator has yet succeeded in inducing normal develop ment by parthenogenesis in C haztopterus, although varying degrees of approximation to this result have been attained. A variety of methods, which have proved more or less effective in other forms, have therefore been employed, in the hope that such experiments might throw light on certain of the factors concerned in the initiation of development in this particular form.

Excerpt from Our Common Insects: First Steps to Entomology Most insects undergo metamorphoses, or transfor mations, into three distinct stages: first, the larva, or grub, when they are most voracious, and Often commit great ravages in the vegetable world; secondly, the pupa, or torpid state, wherein they are inert, and do net feed; and, thirdly, the imago, or perfect insect, during which final period they prepagate the Species, eat very little, and seem to have the full enjoyment of their airy existence. It is a curious fact concerning these apparently insignificant beings, that they exceed in number all other classes of animals put together.

Excerpt from Scheme of Classification The classification of the library of the Department of Agriculture is one which was made especially for it in 1889 by Mr. W.' I. Fletcher, then librarian of Amherst College, there not being available at that time any adequate printed classification of the literature of agriculture. The classification as originally made was broad and simple, the total number of classes being only 230. The library's collections at' that time were comparatively small, aggregating probably less than volumes. With the growth of the library it has been necessary greatly to expand the original classification, the number of classes being now The additions have been made from time to time as the size and use of the collections in certain subjects have demanded subdivision and as books on subjects not previously included in the classification have been added to the library. These changes have been largely influenced also by the growth in the work and organization of the department. In making the additions it has not been possible always, on account of the make-up of the classification, to place them where they would logically belong. As a result, the present classification is in many respects illogical and unbalanced. The classi fication of subjects such as botany and forestry israther minute, while other sub jects - for example, cereals, horticulture, veterinary science, and zoology - have not yet been subdivided. The work of expanding the classification in these and other subjects which are in need of subdivision, will be continued as rapidly as the routine work of the library will permit. The classification has been printed on one side of the page, in order easily to permit of additions and changes. For the reasons explained above, the olassifioation of the library is not one which can be recommended for adoption by other libraries and it is printed exclu sively for departmental use. It was first printed about 1898; the second edition was issued in 1906. It would undoubtedly be desirable for the library to adopt a new classifica tion and one more widely used by other libraries, but this has never seemed feasible on account of the great amount of work and expense involved in the reclassification.
