An Egg With Windows
A French scientist who rem >ved the shell
on either aide of an egg without injuring the
mfrubraoe, in paicues about tbeeizaofLhe
diameter of a pea, and snugly filled the
openings with bits of glass, gives the follow?
ing report of tbe wonderful experiment. I
placed tbe egs? with the glass bull's eyes in
an incubator, ruti by clot:k work tiud re.
voiviog otioe each hour, so thot I bad the
plea-ure of iookiog through and watching
the change upon the inside at the end of
each sixty minutes. No changes were no?
ticeable until after the end of the twelfth
hour, when some of the lineaments of the
head and body of the chick made their ap
pearance. The heart appeared to beat at
the end of the twenty-fourth hour, and, in
forty eight hours, two vesBelii of blood were
distinguished, the pulsations being qui;e
visible. At tbe fiftieth hour as auricle of
the heart appeared, much resembling a lace
or nooee folded down upon itself At the
end of seventy boute wo distinguished wings
and two bubbles for the brain, one fur a
bill and two others for tho forepart and
bindpart of tbe head. Tbe liver appear?
ed at the end of the fifth day. At tbe
end of 131 hours tbe first voluntary
motion was observed. At the eDd of 13S
hours the lungs aud stomach had become
visible, and four hours later the iutestinos.
the loins and tbe upper maudible could be
distinguished. The slimy matter of Ihe
bruin began to take form and become more
compact at tho beginning of the seventh
day. A' the 1:0 h hour the bill first open
ed and lle-h beaan to appear on tho breast.
At tbe 194'.b the sternum appeared. At the
210 h hour the ribs had began to put out
irum the hack : the bill was quite visible, a:
was also the gall bladder. At the beginning
of tbe 236:h bour the bill had become green,
aud it is evident that the chick could have
moved had it been taken from the sbel!.
Four hours more ard feathers had com?
menced to shoot out nnd tbe skull to be?
come gristiy. At the 2G4:h hour the eyes
appear*d and two hours later the ribs were
perfect. At tbe 331^t hour the spleen drew
up to the stomach and tbe lungs to tbe
cbeuf. When tho incubator had turned the
eug 335 times the bill ..as frequently open
iniz ami closing, as if the chick were gasp?
ing for breath. When 451 hours had elapsed
we heard the first cry of the little imprison?
ed biped. From that time forward he grew
rapidly, and came out a full fleged chick at
the proper time.
