What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Sydney Letter to Boston Transcript: Several varieties of fishés which have long disappeared from other parts of the world are still represented in New South Wales. Among these are the ces- tracion, or Port Jackson shark, whose teeth resemble those of the fossil acro- dis, found in mesozole deposits, and the ceratodus, an existing ganoid, otherwise exclusively represented in the trias formation, its anatomy showing a con- necting link between a lizard and a fish. Among other remarkable fish found in these waters several may be enumerated. The frog fish, belonging th’ the order pediculati, has fins adapted for walking on the ground rather than for swimming, and is found floating in- shore among marine plants from which it is with difficulty distinguished owing to its great resemblance to them in point of color. The hopping fish, a va- riety of gobil, or sea gudgeon, has its fin developed into legs, so that the ani- mal is able to leap among the mud flats which it frequents. The eyes of the fish are curiously placed at the tep of its head and are capable of being thrust far out of their sockets and of moving independently of one another. The hippocampus, or sea horse, 80 | named from a resemblance in the shape | of the head and fore part of the body | to that of the horse, is a very singular fish, but the phyllopteryx is, perhaps, | the most remarkable fish of Australia, | if not of the world. It is like the ghost of 4 sea horse, with its winding sheet all in ribbons around it. Its tattered which leave Omaha every Thursday morning.

He was at the first trial of the Hyams twins for the murder of Will iam C. Wells. This took place in Toron to. It looked black for the twins, but when their counsel saw the “murder- ers’ mascot” in the court room he felt confident of victory. “If you will re- win the jury, sure.” the jury disagreed. iie went back ‘o Toronto to be present at the second trial, and the Hyams were acquitted.

At the other end of the camp a theater is shown, with candles for footlights and antiquated proper- ties.
