.( j in li In. . i t at in.'
and strange devclopteenu of organio
fish life:
The goby, a family of fishes dis
tinguished by a dlsic formed by tha
ventral fins which enao.es them to at
tach their bodiet firmly to the rork
or other substances, Is represented by
an odd specimen, a tort of half-breed.
hu h ha some of the habits of the
batracUna or aicphlblani lu scien
tific name is Perloi'hihhJmue koelreu
tcrt, tha vitent of which seems to
ha7e exhausted nomenelature In this
particular case, as no other name can
be found for It avea In Its natal waters.
Its most atrlklng peculiarity Is tha
habit It hat of leaving tha wlrat
tha abb of the tide and feeding cr tha
small crusUicea asd other tubsuuicwa
exposed by the receding tide. Owing
to Its strong pectoral aid flos
and tail It can hop freely a;1 tepidly
over tha ground. So ,ultic are ita
movements thai It is almost aa diffi
cult to catch It with tha hand as It la
the ordinary pond frog. Tha peculiar
construction o! it eyes wb:n ara
very movable, and capable of being
thrust far out of lhir socket enables
it to see. In tha air as well aa in tha
water.
From this amphibious frog-fish tha
transition Is natural to one that caa
climb trees. It is called Arabaa
scan Jons in tbe books, and 'climbing
perch" by tha natives of tha Indian
region.
In 1797 Daldort In a paper before
tha Ldnnean Society of London, states
that In 1791 he took a climbing parch
la tha act of fcacealiig a tit which
grew near a pond. Tha fith had
reached a height of five feet above tha
water and was still going higher. Ia
doing this It held on U tha bark of tha
tree by tha sharp spines of the front
and lower gill covers, bent Ita tall and
atuck in tha atiines of Its auat, tha
haca fin on the belly; it then released
Ita iied, and. raising it took a aew
hold higher up with tha spines of tha
gill covers, urging It way up by dis
tending or contracting 1U body. This
perch leaves pools w heu they ara la
danger of being dried up, and travels
in search of water, and when doing ao
they have ben met with in the glare
of noon toiling along a du.ty roil It
la said that tha boam.ea of tba Usages
keep these perches in a vessel without
water for days, killing and cooking
: them aa wanWd from day to day, tha
fith being always as lively as whoa
I first caught. It it said that they are
i enabled to maintain life out of their
j native element so long a time bee a ate
of the retention of a supply of water
ia tha interstices of tha hones adjacent
to tha gills.
I A curious elongfttioa of the snout
occurs In the boar fith or bastard do.
rey, one of the marine perches native
to Australian waters, much esteemed
as a fish food. Its flesh improves la
flavor after belug out of tha water
twenty-four hour, hence it Is much
sought for by Inland people. The ue
of the snout in fWhes appears to be
merely mechanical, for rooting purpos
es, and its prolongation would appear
to be simply a freak of nature, other
tithe of the ssma family and hah! u
having only the usual length of snout.

down as to the use of the anout in tha
