DKBP SKA KXPLOKA I ION The Albatross" is one of the few vessels afloat today that are properly equipped for deep-sea exploration. Shu has all the new est apparatus, including trawl nets that may be dragged along the ocean floor at a depth of three miles or more; huge tangles of ravelled rt)j)tf to gather up the star flhes,. sean whins, corals, sea fatm and sponires from the bottom; improvttd instruments for deter mining depths and the water tem perature at any level; and lasl'.but not least, a laboratory on board for the study of the curious creat ures brought to the surface by the uetH and other devices. There are tauks of alcohol, cases full of jais and bottles for speci mens, chemical conveniences, mic roscopes, and even a photographic dark room in which pictures of in teresting animals may be develop ed. Some of ;hr creatures are much altered in appearance by beiu preserved in spirits or otherwise, and it may be desirable o secure their portraits vlnle they are fresh. Unfortunately, the deip sea fishes ark nearly always more or less out of shape when iuvertebrate specimens are placfd in a cold room while absorbiug the alcohol. The fishes are injected with al cohol by mtans of hypodermic syringe, and so likewise are large ahriraps and crabs. Deepsca tar fiahes, aea-urcbin8, and small cor als are first soaked in alcohol and then dried ; large corals are spray ed with alcohol and packed in salt; jelly-fishes are hardened in solu tion of picric acid, wrapped in cheesecloth, and kept in strong al cohol. -Pearson's Magazine.
