A FEW months ago Mr. Matthias Dunn, a Cornish fishing expert, contributed to the Contemporary Review an article on "The Seven Senses in Fishes," which contain a few stories and theories which were generally received with notes of interrogation. Among these was an opinion that fishes emit sounde which are understood by their fellows. This. sur. prising theory has now been confirmed by Professor Kollicker, of the Naples Aquarium, who has wrapped himself in a diving suit and has been let down to the bottom of the Mediterranean in an iron cage lit up by electricity. With the aid of a powerful receiverand a specially-constructed phonograph he has registered the expressions of surprise with which the fish wel- comed his appearance. He notes that the sound made by one fish differs greatly from that of another, and has summed up the results of his experiment in the conviction that the sounds produced by fishes will yet be recognised as a language.
