ABOUT LIZARDS. The sight oj u lizard crawling over the walls of lir house would doubtless horrify and disgust an American house keeper, and the appearance of ono of the dreadful crvntiirea in her mtrlor or drawing-room might drive her to the hiding places, but they never seemed to vetge of distraction. The sensation care to touch an insect which they had caused by a monse is nothing compared to what a lizard might do In the same line. In India, however, things are different. Tlio housewifely Instincts of an English or American woman there are probably no less refined than those of a carefnl'woman in this country, but still she docs not mind, seeing lizards in any purl of her house.

The tail is simply a muscular appendage into which tho back bone does not seem to extend. It is about two-thirds as long as the lizard's body, quite large where it joins tho body, and gradually tapers to a point. A fall or a blow will break it off, but even when !dojnuJetcly detached It will retain life . for hitlf an hour or more, squirming like - - a worm, twisting, doubling up and oven . ; "Jumping around as actively as a minnow " out of wator.

Their shells are as thin as paper and exceedingly brittle. They are deposited in out-ol-the-way nooks on the tops of or behind books as they stand on shelves, in unused (able draw ers or in the pigeon holes of desks. Whou freshly lnidthey are of a cream color, but become a very pale blue, like well watered milk, as the hatching lime draws near. A newly hatched lizard is an exceedingly lively little fellow; and sometimes, when an egg is knocked from its resting place and broken, the occupant, after a second or two of astonishment at so sudden an introduc tion into the world, will dart away into a place of concealment with as much agUity as if it were fully grown.

Yet thore is much that is mod ern and I'ariolnn.

Here the fathers established their central station, whenco they could start out to visit all the tribes of the North and West, and whither they could return when wearied with their labors or in want of supplies. Father Joguos pitched his tent here in 1640, and in 1671, on the very site of the modern town, an envoy of the Most v. nnstian King had a grand council with sovorot thousand Indians for making a treaty of offensive and defensive . alliance against the incursions of those friends of our school-boy days, the Six Nations. Tbe river is the only outlet trom the vast lake, but some tlieo.ies have been advanced to favor the con;e,-ture that there exists a subterranean channel, for, after all allowances for evaporation, it is difficult to conceive that one chan nel can carry off the superfluous water from suuh an immen-e lake, whose area is 82.000 square milos, and whose tributaries drain more than twice that extent of territory.

At the American Science Association in Philadelphia. Prof. J. K Hilgard read a paper on the "Relative Level ot the Atlant o ueean ana tiuu 01 .Mex ico." He exhibited a reliof model, showing the western part of the North Atlantic uccan, me vuu 01 mexico nun the United States, east of the Missis sippi River. The principal features to which he direoted attention were the fact that tho actual continental outline does not correspond to the present ac cidental limits of land and water, but to the ono-hundred fathom curve, bo that the continental limit is far out un der the sea. Florida and Yucatan have more than twice thr geographical limits, while the West Iudies and the Antilles appear as a vast submarine continuation of the Florida Peninsula, the mountain- summits of which only appear above the sea. This submarine , .. ... bateau, extending to the southeast ;orms. with the coast line of the United States, a great bight nearly as large again is the Gulf of Mexico, which Prof. Hilgard designated the Great bav of North Ament a. Whatever the causes which produced the Gulf Stream, thev must give rise to an elevation 01 the gulf above the Atlantio in order to occasion tne stream a pnysicai iaut demonstrated bv most accurate meas urements. The explanation of the stream was that the North Atlantic trade winds set tho water of the Caribbean Sea against the "Spanish Main" (Cen tral America), deflected northward along the coast of Yuoatan, where the flow is through the straits between Yucatan and Cuba, and thence through the Eemini Channel into the Atlantic Ocean, thus forming what is known as the "Gulf Stream.'fTbe part which the Gulf of Mexico has in this is mainly that ot a reservoir or"accumulator," maintaining the outflow at a more un iform rate than the assigned cause woud, admit of without such a reservoir.
