The oriental Minetliyst is'really a vlo^  let colored sapphire, which is an exceedingly rare gem and of brilliant luster.

The ancients often used the amethyst for cutting figures both in rglief  and in intaglio, and there is in.the national, library of France a delicately  "wrought profile of Jlrocenas, a ltoitian  statesman of Octavius' time, engraved  on amethyst by Dioscorides, one of the  four celebrated engravers  mentioned  by. riiny.  < _____���������������������������������������������_���������_.

says'that one of his chilihs-li  amusements wlien pkiyiin; with his companions m (lie early evening was to strike

A Pair oi  CntflHli.  - A pair of catfish that were continuously watched in a governnieiit'aqua-  rimn   made  a  nest  by   removing  tho  gravel from a corner.   During the first  few days after hatching the fry, banked in the corners of the tank, "were at  irregular intervals actively stirred by  tho barbels of the parents, usually the  male.   Subsequently the parents were  seen to suck the eggs into their mouths  and then extrude them \vltb some force.  The prodacoous feedlng'habits of the  old fish gradually overcame the parental Instinct.   The tendency to suck the  fry  into,their'mouths  continued   and  the inclination to spit them out diminished,  so  that the liuniber1 of young  dwindled daily, and  the 000 that had  been left with their parents had completely disappeared in'six week's, although other food was liberally supplied.
