There appears to be no limit to sci entific curiosity, especially in Ger many. Not long ago a scientist of Leipzig, wishing to ascertain whether fish are warmer than the water they live in, stuck a needle connected with a thermoelectric circuit into a living fish in an aquarium. The needle formed one element of the circuit, while the other element was immersed in the same water that contained the fish. The latter was not seriously injured by the needle and quickly became indif ferent to it. Then as the fish swam about, carrying the needle, the ingen ious savant closed the circuit and kept watch of the galvanometer. It show ed no deflection whatever, from which he concluded that the fish and the water were precisely equal in tempera ture, for had either been warmer than the other a current would have been generated in the circuit.Chicago Rec ord-Herald.
