Iture Geological DUoevencs
A collection of the eldest fishes of the
world Is being prepared for exhibition
at the National rnuscum, Washington,
says the Stir. They trefe tlug out of
the rocks recently nt Canyon City, CeL
Great scientific interest lias been
aroused by the discovery, because they
are thousands of years mere ancient
than anv creatures with backbones ever
found before. Tliey conic from Ifie
sedlmcnlary flciKiMJaiJ jlewn by
vatf in the distanl epoch calle tlie
Silurian. Xfcese are renj he lower
sflunau, and some notion of thc dlffer dlffer
ence of time may be get from the fact
that the two "horizons" are Bcparatcd
in the Appalachian region by twenty
thousand feet of sediment.
Where these fishes" were, found was
once a sand beach en the Western shore
of a vast Interior 6ca, which extended
eastwards from the Reclcy mountains,
and covered a large part of the conti
nent Geologists, wandering through
that region se prolific of treasures in
the shape of fossils, came- upon the de
posits accidentally. The line of the
ancient beach is still visible, although
it is overlaid by sedimentary rocks of
subsequent formation. They made ex
cavations with pickax and blast, getr
ting out a great qu:intity of material,
which was brought te Wellington.
Thirty millions of years have perhaps
elapsed since the creatures thus dug
out were living. 1 1 must have been a
strange world in which they had their
beinir se far back In the night of time.
Even the reptiles which flourished and
attained such gigantic dimensions at a
later period did net yet exist. The only
vertebrates were fishes.
These fishes of the lower Silurian
were all small the diminutive types of
the great fishes which swarmed in the
waters during a later period, which has
been called the age of fishes. They
were clad In armor, being covered with
plates of bone instead of scales. Their
skeletons were composed wlwlly of
cartilage, like thoee of the sharlcs of to
day, which themselvea represent an
enormously ancient finny pattern.
Under the mlcroseopo it is possible te
bee the structure of the bone which
composed the plates. In similar armor
was the huge and ferocious dlnlchthys,
as well as ether marine monsters of a
subsequent epoch, dressed.

beard at health has iataed a qinmlar tie
the various health dcrpartments of OMe
urging upon them the Importance ei
precautionary measures te prevent' the
introduction of cholera.
Among the sanitary recommenda
tions offered are: A thorough sanitary
inspection, including a systematic
house-te-house visitation, should be
made in eaeh city and village at once.
All stagnant ponds, and lev? wet
grounds should be drained, and where
possible, filled. Streets and alleys
should be made clean; public sewers
and drains flushed and disinfected, and
all collections of garbage, manure and
ether offensive matters promptly re
moved. Slaughter-houses and buildings
used for offenslve trade should be made
as clean as possible.
A general notice should be gircn te
householders te clean their dwellings
and premises, and the beard of health,
by its housc-te-houso inspection, should
sec that this order is promptly carried
out Householders should be 'di
rected te have privies, water-closets,
sinks and drains cleaned and disinfect
ed. Special attentien should be paid te
cellars, which should be free from all
decaying vegetables and rubbish, and
be well aired Damp cellars should be
made dry by proper draluage,and white
wash should be liberally used. All ac
cumulations of household garbage about
premises should be removed beyond the
boundaries of the town.
Beards of health should pay special
attention te the purity of drinking
water, for the germs of cholera are
most frequently taken Inte the system
by drinking water polluted by the dis
charges of a cholera patient
The use of the following disinfectant
is recemmended: A solution of copperas,
or sulphate of Iren a pound and a half
te a gallon of water may be used
for correcting bad drains, privies,
ccss-poels, etc., and should be
frequently applied. If it should be
come known that the steels of a cholera
patient had been thrown into a privy
vault copperas should net be used, but
instead corrosive sublimate in solution
in the proportion of "ene pound for
every five hundreds pounds, estimated
of fecal matter matter contained in the
vault All exposed portions of the vault
and the woodwork about it should be
thoroughly washed down with the dis
