5-Paralichthys albiguttus, on very fine gray sand, almost entirely covered with sand, from August 19 to 21. Note the two small depressions in the sand at the base of the caudal fin. The lower one is much more prominent than the other. This individual breathed only through the lower gill. The water which entered the mouth passed back under the body and oozed up through the sand, forming the depressions. The animal was very effectively concealed. 6-Same individual uncovered.... 7- Paralichthys, 13 cm. long, in a glass dish over very fine black sand. Note the remarkable similarity between the pattern and the shade in the fish, especially the central part of the body, and those of the sand. The tips of the fins and the tail have no pigment and consequently stand out boldly against the background. 8- Paralichthys albiguttus, 16 and 10 cm long, on a smooth jet black background. Note the conspicuous white spots. In some instances all of these, except a trace of the one at the base of the pectoral fin, disappeared entirely
Portions of the radula of A, Limnaea stagnalis L, with the central tooth and two first laterals, and two of the marginals, very highly magnified; B, Ancylus fluviatalis Mull, with two of the marginals very highly magnified; C, Physa fontinalis L., with central tooth and two of the marginals very highly magnified

9- Paralichthys albiguttus, 14 cm. long, individual (B), on black and white background (2 mm. squares) from July 29, 11 a.m. to July 30, 3 p.m., after having been adapted to the background shown in figure 10. This indiviidual was extensively used in the study of adaption on artificial backgrounds. It is represented in many....figures. Note that numerous dark spots have appeared in the light areas shown in figure 10, and that the light spots in the dark areas have become more numerous and more conspicuous. 10- Individual (B) on black and white backgroune (5 mm. squares) from July 25, 2 p.m. to jUly 26, 11:30 a.m., after having been adapted to a white background. Note that the three very light gray areas around the ocelli...have become much darker and other dark spots have appeared. 11-Individual (B) on black and white backgroune (2 cm. squares) from August 1, 9 a.m., to 4:30 p.m., after having been adapted to 1 cm. squares, shown in figure 12. Note that the pattern has changed very little.12-Individual (B) opn black and white backgroune (1 cm. squares) from July 31, 11:40 a.m., to August 1, 9 a.m., after having been on (1 sq. cm. circles) from July 30, 3 p.m.., to July 31, 11:40 a.m. Note that the dark areas are darker than in figure 10.
Portions of the radula of A, Hyalinia nitidula Drap, Yorkshire with central tooth, first lateral, and a marginal very highly magnified; B, Helis pomata L., Kent, showing central tooth, laterals, and one extreme marginal, the two former also highly magnified; C, Orthalicus undatus Brug., Trinidad, with three laterals highly magnified; D, Cylindrella rosea Pfr., Jamaica, central tooth and laterals, the same very highly jagnified; E, Achatinella vulpina Fer., Oahu, central tooth (c) and laterals, the same highly magnified
31- Paralichthys albiguttus (F), 14 cm long, in large, shallow granite pan (variegated, dark blue and white).... Note the small white spots shown in irregular rows across the fish. 32- Individual (F) on black and white background (dots 2 mm. in diameter). The white spots in the irregular rows have become more conspicuous, but the pattern is essentially the same, although the spacial interrelationship of the light and dark areas in the background is very different.... 33- Individual (C).... in...granite pan...34- Individual (C) on black and white background (2 mm. squares).... Note that the patterns produced by these two very different backgrounds are essentially the same.
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.
Exquisite Iced Foliage, Canadian Side of Niagara Falls
The tourist will never feel the full majestic grandeur of the Niagara Falls until he has seen them from all points and at all seasons; until he has stood below and seen its flood of waters pour from the very vault of heaven; until he has passed behind its watery veil and felt the buffeting of its imprisoned air, or stood beside the Whirlpool Rapids and felt the utter impotence of man. He will never know their indescribable beauty until he has watched the very center of the Horse Shoe or wandered in the wooded aisles of Goat Island or by the fairy cascades of the Three Sisters. He will never understand their wonderful voice until he has listened to the thunder of the Horse Shoe, which Eugene Thayer, the great organist, declared "was not a roar, but the divinest music on earth."
Sea Gulls Flying Over the Water of San Francisco Bay
Here you are on the deck of a ferryboat that is crossing San Francisco Harbor. Do you know another place where ferryboats cross a harbor? See the sea gulls that are following the boat. The boat has left a foamy track on the water that is called the wake. Do you know why the gulls are following the boat? They are looking for something to eat. They can live on the fish they catch but they have learned to like our food, too. Sea gulls are very strong birds. They can fly for days without resting. They are beautiful to watch as they fly, or swoop down to skim something from the water. But they are very noisy, too.Gulls make their nests of grass, moss and seaweed on rocky cliffs. Their eggs are light brownish spotted with chocolate color. They do not hatch more than three in one brood.
