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 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 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 An Introduction to Zoology: With Directions for Practical Work (Invertebrates) IT is desirable, perhaps, to give some reason for adding another book on Natural History to the many that already exist, and to indicate in what way the book is intended to be used. The danger of the multiplication of small text - books is that they may conceivably be used in place of that firsthand investigation which must form the basis of all scientific work nevertheless, so long as the time allotted to Natural History is as limited as it is in the ordinary curriculum of school and college in this country, it is necessary to use to the best advantage the hours which teacher and pupils spend together, and I suggest that this time can at first be most profitably spent in practical work, during which the teacher directs and supplements the observations of the class, leading his pupils to reason about the facts they observe, and to record them by means of clear accurate drawings with brief explanatory notes.

Excerpt from The Anthropological Review, Vol. 4 On the first appearance of his Principles of Geology, Sir Charles (then Mr.) Lyell was accused by some reviewers of putting the cart before the horse - Of discussing the respective merits of an unimpaired and uniform series of changes, and a succession of catastrophes diminishing in intensity, before proceeding to a statement of facts showing the adequacy of existing causes to account for ancient geological phenomena. But the order adopted by Lyell was the best calculated to prepare the mind of the reader not only to appreciate, but to take an interest in, the mass of circumstantial evi dances, or verse cause, contained in that justly celebrated work.

Excerpt from The Fourth Reader of the School and Family Series Rule I. - Direct questions, or those that can be answered by yes or no, generally require the rising inflection, and their answers the falling. Examples. - Do you think he will come to-day? No; I think he will not -Was that Henry? No; it was John Did you see William? Yes, ! did. Are you going to town to-day? No, I shall go to-morrow. Modifications Of Rule I. Note I. Answers that are given in a careless or indifferent manner, or in a tone of slight disrespect, take the rising inflection in all cases. Examples Did you see William? I did. - What did he say to you? Not much. See, also, Lesson H., p. 39, of Second Reader. Note II. - Direct questions, when they have the nature of an appeal, or are spoken in an exclamatory manner, take the falling inflection. In these cases the voice often falls below the general pitch, contrary to the general rule for the falling inflection. Examples. - Is not that a beautiful sight? - Will you persist in doing it? - Is it right? - Is it just? Was ever woman in this humor wooed? Was ever woman in this humor won? Note III. - When a direct question is not understood, and is repeated with emphasis, the repeated question takes the falling inflection. Examples. - Will you speak to him to-day? the question is not understood, it is repeated with the falling inflection, thus: Will you speak to him to-day? - Are you going to Salem? I said, Are you going to Salem? Rule II. The pause of suspension, denoting that the sense is unfinished, such as a succession of particulars that are not emphatic, cases of direct address, sentences implying condition, the case absolute, etc., generally requires the rising inflection.

p”Ein auch heute noch bedeutsamer Klassiker“ Daily Express Sind wir Marionetten unserer Gene? Nach Richard Dawkins ́ vor über 30 Jahren entworfener und heute noch immer provozierender These steuern und dirigieren unsere von Generation zu Generation weitergegebenen Gene uns, um sich selbst zu erhalten. Alle biologischen Organismen dienen somit vor allem dem Überleben und der Unsterblichkeit der Erbanlagen und sind letztlich nur die "Einweg-Behälter" der "egoistischen" Gene. Sind wir Menschen also unserem Gen-Schicksal hilflos ausgeliefert? Dawkins bestreitet dies und macht uns Hoffnung: Seiner Meinung nach sind wir nämlich die einzige Spezies mit der Chance, gegen ihr genetisches Schicksal anzukämpfen.

Excerpt from A Bibliography of the Tunicata, 1469-1910 IN preparing for publication by the Ray Society Alder 85 Hancock's British Tunicata I found it necessary to compile a bibliography of works treating of British species which had appeared up to the time the authors ceased their labours on the Class. Joseph Alder died in 1867, Albany Hancock in 1873, and as he appears to have ceased to work at their ms. A few years after the death of his coadjutor, the end of the year 1870 seemed to be the best time to close all references to the species described. The preparation of the present Bibliography was therefore undertaken in the first instance to that date for my own use only, but as other works besides those relating to British species were included, and in the course of its compilation it was found to have added many references to any previous bibliography of the Tunicata, it appeared to me that it might be useful to others if printed. On suggesting this to Canon Norman, who was then giving me his advice and assistance in preparing for the press Alder Hancock's monograph, he said that a bibliography of works which had appeared since the date named would be far more useful.

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 Record of the Alumni of the Kansas State Agricultural College The lands on the College farms were at first cultivated in'the ordinary way, but gradually more and more systematically, trials were made of fertilizers, special crops, methods of soil preparation, methods of planting, etc. The annual report for 1872 includes about twenty pages devoted to reporting the results of agricultural operations. Although efforts were made continually, it was with much difficulty that the legislature was induced to make any ap propriation even for agriculture. By the terms of the federal law all buildings must be furnished by the State, but up to 1872' nothing had been done. Bluemont College was the only building. The legislature of 1872 made an appropriation with which the stone wall enclosing the present campus was built and a barn was begun. Only one wing of this was ever completed. It was used as a barn until 1875, when it was taken for College classes. It has. Served many purposes since: General class-rooms; chapel; soc1ety hall; dormitories; residence of the professor of agriculture; quarters for departments of zoology, botany, bacteriology, and veterinary science; armory, etc. It is now used for instruction in farm mechanics, and for housing the machinery used in that work.

Das Buch der imaginären Wesen geht weit über seinen ursprünglichen Titel und Rahmen - 'Handhabung der phantastischen Zoologie' - hinaus. Neben Fabeltieren von der doppelköpfigen Schlange Amphisbaena bis zum Schiffe versenkenden Riesenfisch Zaratan umfaßt das Werk auch die in-teressantesten metaphysischen Geschöpfe der menschlichen Phantasie, darunter etwa jüdische Dämonen, Swedenborgs Engel oder die nicht nur in verstöpselten Flaschen vorkommenden Dschinn. Die Lektüre der meisten Artikel wird dank des bewußt faktischen Tonfalls zu einem höchst spöttischen Vergnügen; der Anhang bietet weitergehende Informationen über die ergötzlichsten Monster der Weltliteratur.
