Thirty New Species of Fish.
Tho wilds of Africa aro just beginning
to be accessible to tho naturalist.
Tho country is sufficiently broken in
tho interior now to allow a man to
study at his leisure without tho constant
horror of tho unknown hanging
over him. The latest expedition into
tho Anfola country of West Africa
has brought forth 30 new species of
fish hitherto entirely unknown to tho
scientific world. Dr. \V. .1 Ansorgor
brought back to the British museum
more than 1,000 specimens of all, and.
of course, the vast tchthyological world
still unexplored lies as a tempting
bait to other students since the pos
nihilities of the dark continent are
lust beginning to be appreciated.
