This style of basket rake is used at Edgartown and Nantucket. The whole rake is made of iron, no netting being required, as thin iron wires 1/3 of an inch apart encircle lengthwise the entire basket, preventing the escape of any marketable quahaugs, while at the same time allowing mud and sand to wash out. This rake has 16 steel teeth, 1 1/2 inches long, fitted at intervals of 1 inch on the scraping bar. The depth of the basket is about 8 inches. Short poles not exceeding 30 feet in length are used, as the raking is carried on in water which does not exceed 25 feet in depth. Only the iron framework of the rake is shown.
Diagram of the method used in experimental hatching of quahaug eggs and rearing of the young larvae at the Wellfleet laboratory. It represents a cross-section of the laboratory, showing a small 1 1/2 horse power gasoline engine (B), connected by a belt with a pump (C), by which salt water is forced from below into a tank (A) situated near the roof. The laboratory is located on a wharf over the water, which enables salt water to be obtained directly from beneath the floor. The inlet of the pump is guarded by a strainer (H), which prevents seaweed entering the pipe. From the tank the salt water is conducted through the laboratory by a large pipe set with small petcocks. From these petcocks pieces of rubber tubing (F) lead to the hatching tubs (E), which consist of half barrels fitted with sand filters (D). The tubs are placed over a sink (G) which carries off the filtered water. By this arrangement a continuous flow of water is established through the hatching tanks.
Scallops over one year old, as shown by the formation of the annual growth line, which is caused by cessation of growth during the winter months. Any scallop which does not possess this annual growth line is less than one year old, and is a 'seed' scallop. The present legal definition of a 'seed' scallop is based on the annual growth line, as its absence indicates that the animal has not as yet reached its spawning season, and is, therefor, an immature animal
Photograph of the nest of a horned dace (Semotilus atromaculatus), taken with a reflecting camera and by the aid of a cloth screen.... The reflected image of part of the screen is seen over the right and left parts of the nest. In the upper part of the picture at the right above S.T. is the sand trail; to the left of this, above P, is the pit in the bottom of which are large pebbles; farther to the left, above G.R., is the gravel ridge with its top dressing of fine pebbles. The end of the ridge, its structure of coarse pebbles, is within the pit at the left
Grand Canyon of the Colorado and River
Stolid indeed is he who can front the awful scene and view its unearthly splendor of color and form without quaking knee or tremulous breath. An inferno, swathed in soft clestial fires; a whole chaotic under-world, just emptied of primeval floods and waiting for a new creative world; eluding all sense of perspective or dimension, defeating the faculty of measurement, putting ina maze all apprehension of limit; a terrible thing, unflinchingly real, yet spectral as a dream. The beholder is at first unimpressed by any detail; he is overwhelmed by the whole of the stupendous panorama, a thousand square miles in extent, that lies wholly beneath the eye, as if he stood upon a mountain peak instead of upon the level brink of a fearful chasm in the plateau, whose opposite shore is thirteen miles away. The Grand Canon is a labyrinth of huge architectural forms, endlessly varied in design, fretted with ornamental devices, festooned with lace-like webs formed of crumblings from the cliffs above and painted with every color known in pure, transparent tomes of marvelous delicacy.

Watch the Fish Counter, issued by Canada Food Board. Everyone who lunches at the downtown cafeteria comes up against this problem every day--meat or fish. It is a sign of the times that the fish counter gets so much attention now. Once it was little more than a Friday institution. Now it is an all-the-week-round affair.
Watch the man who swings up regularly for a plate of fish. He's a good food conservationist and he is more in pocket than the other fellow who keeps to a meat diet, in spite of all he is hearing about the advantages of using more fish.
Bliss No. 18 Automatic Double Seamer.--The operation of this machine, which is used for double seaming tops of filled cans, is entirely automatic. It is built to handle round, square, oval and oblong cans. In this machine the can stands perfectly still while being double seamed. The operator has only to place the filled cans with the tops on the feed table, where the jaws take the can and top, maingaining them in currect relation to each other. After double seaming, the can is carried away withoug futher manipulation on the part of the operator.
The machine has a capacity of 15 to 25 closures per minute, this varying according to the size and shape of the can to be double seamed. 3/4 sardine cans are handled at the rate of 20 per minute.
Showing the ceremonial behavior of the horned dace when a strange dace approaches the nest. The owner of the nest is seen in the pit P. Above this is the gravel ridge, G.R., and below it is the sand trail, S.T. The direction of the current is indicated by the arrow at the right. The course of the two fish upstream to the point X and the return of the owner to his nest are indicated by the broken lines with the arrowheads. The havey lines indicate the banks of the stream
[Oysters] : The small oysters are natives from Yaquina bay, some of them showing the spat of this year attached to the shell. Of the two larger shells the rougher one is an average sized shell of a Virginia oyster from the New Jersey coast. As is well known, oysters from many other localities are decidedly larger than this. The smoother large shell is from an eastern oyster grown in Yaquina bay. This, again, is hardly representative, for I have been shown shells much larger

Bridal Veil Falls and Three Graces, Yosemite
The Yosemite Valley is nearly in the center of the state of California north and south, and just midway between the east and west basins of the Sierra, here a little over 70 miles wide. The valley is anearly level area, about six miles in length, and from half a mile to a mile in width, sunken almost a mile in perpendicular depth below the general level of the region. It may be roughly likened to a gigantic trough holowed out in the mountains, nearly at right angle to their regular trend. Down the many side gulches or canyons descend streams, forks of the Merced, coming down the steeps in a series of stupendous waterfalls. On the side of Cathedral Rock, which faces the entrance of Merced River into the valley, Bridal Veil Creek falls over a precipice 630 feet high and then forms a number of smaller cascades that together make a descent of 300 feet more. The fall is very beautiful. In its leaps the column of water is swayed hither and thither by the wind, and nearly dissolved into spray, which makes the fanciful name very appropriate. The Yosemite Valley Fall has a clear leap of 1,500 feet from the top of the cliff.
Right Whale and Sperm Up to 60 Feet Finners Up to 110 Feet
1-Greenland Right Whale, Balaena Mysticeptus, up to 60 feet in length, generally found near Arctic ice. The smaller whalebone whale of the Atlantic and Southern oceans is somewhat similar in shape; it runs to 50 feet; shows tail as it dives; has no fin on back. It is called the Nordcapper or Biscayensis and Australis. 2- The Sperm or Cachalot,; Physeter Macrocephalus. A toothed whale 50 to 60 feet;; shows tail when it dives; sometimes breaches,; i.e. leaps several times in succession as it travels; blast low and projected forward. 3- Seihvale, Balaenoptera Borealis, 40 to 50 feet; blast about 10 feet; does not usually lift tail out of water before final dive; has fin on back, is therefore a "finner.; 4- Fin whale, Balaenoptera Musculus, up to 75 feet. The Blue whale Balaenoptera Sibbaldii is similar, with smaller fin on back; both make blasts about 18 feet. The Blue whale in Southern seas has been killed up to 110 feet.
