King Salmon: Variotions in the form of the myomeres are shown in this figure of the left side on Oncorhynchus tschawytscha. The superficial markings of the myomeres and of the myocommata are indicated. There is some little variation, but of no great significance, at the level where the superficialis and the profundus join. It was deemed to detract from the significance of this figure to indicate this separating line.... The cephalic myocommata are attached to the base of the skull--to the occipital, temporal and pterotic bones. They are not interrupted by the clavicle, which lies lightly embedded on the surface. The complexity of folding and the lingitudinal extent of the myomeres increases posteriorly. The most important variation is due to the division of the anterior fold into two slender cones in the caudal half of the body

Mussels when taken are put into a small flatboat and conveyed to the dam, where they are transferred to another boat above the dam , as illustrated. In the second boat the mussels are taken to camp for cooking out. This is the scene of one of the most extensive mussel fisheries where shells are taken by hand.
Spiked water milfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum)
Found in deep water. Newfoundland to Manitoba and the Northwest Territory, south to Florida, Iowa, Utah, and California. Commonly known as foxtail. Suited to southern ponds of high temperature, and unlike most species will thrive in comparatively soft waters. 'Parrot-feather,' and introduced species of Myriophyllum will make better growth in sterile ground than the foxtail; otherwise the two have similar characteristics.
Trial trip of 'Nora,' of Stella, Washington. This boat belongs to Struckmier & Horton, and is used for towing big rafts and scows. She is equipped with a 75 h. p. Troyer-Fox engine, and runs night and day, towing large rafts a distance of 80 miles and over. As her trial trip was taken on Sunday, the accompanying picture shows her with most of the population of the town of 'Stella' aboard.

The circle around the star, here and elsewhere among the mollusks, denotes the known occurrence of living specimens. Where the circle is wanting, either dead shells only were present or the point is not indicated in the records. The symbol has, however, been employed only in the case of shell-bearing animals
Placing cheese-cloth retainers over nests containing bass fry about ready to swim up. Most of the nests are seen covered with retainers. When a nest is occupied it is numbered and complete record kept of its different stages. The retainers are to confine the fry for convenience in transferring to other ponds to make room for following broods. (Mammoth Hot Springs, Arkansas)
