A Queer Fish.
In European fresh water is to be
found a very large silurold known as
the wels. Its head is large, broad and
depressed, fully as long as the trunk
Itself, while the tall Is compressed
and longer than the head and trunk
together. The entire fish Is destitute
of scales and covered with a smooth,
slippery skin like an eel. The snout
is very short, the mouth broad, with
the lower Jaw longer and very exten
sible. There are six barbels around
the mouth, two of which, situated on
each side of the upper jaw before the
eye, are very long, extending nearly
to the tali. The other four are much
shorter and arranged in pairs on the
chin. Owing to its poor eyesight and
sluggish movements the wels would
be badly handicapped In the race of
life if not for these barbels, especially
those of the upper Jaw, which can be
moved voluntarily In every direction.
In moving leisurely about the fish uses
them constantly in feeling Its way,
and at the same time they serve to at
tract other fishes, which mistake them
for worms. When the wels perceives
its prey close enough tobe seized It
