MEN OF IMMORTAL MEMORY
Many of the Works of the Greek
Philosopher, Plato and Aristotle,
Are Still Preserved.
Pinto (427-317 B. 0.), the celebrated
Greek philosopher, tnught that tho
true source of knowledge Is tho reason,
observes nti exchange. According to
IiIh tenchlng, vu come to conscious
ness through Innate ldens developed
by contact with tho outer world
through senses. Ho distinguished be
tween empirical knowledge ami reason,
and divided philosophy Into logic,
metaphysics nnd morals, lie was the
first to attempt the construction of
philosophic language; to develop an
abstract Idea of knowledge nnd
ficlenco; to stnto logically the prop
erties of matter, form, substance, ac
cident, causo nnd effect, reality nnd
appearance; to describe the divinity
ns a being essentially good, and tell
of Ms moral attributes. He taught
that matter Is uu eternal and Intlnlto
principle; that Hod Is the supreme In
telligence, Incorporeal, without begin
ning, end or change, nnd that tho soul
of man Is Immortal. Arlstotlo (3S1
IW2 U. 0.), another celebrated Greek
philosopher, was the pupil of Plato and
the teacher of Alexander the Great.
Ho makes logic the Instrument by
which all general knowledge Is ob
tnlned. He enlarged the limits of
philosophy to Include all sciences ex
cept history, lie taught that nature
Is a machine, active through deity or
a llrst cause.
CATFISH CLIMB SMOOTH WALL
Certain Species Equipped With a Pe
culiar Suetlon Apparatus That
Maket Feat Really Easy.
An Interesting account of the climb
ing cntlWh of Colombia (Arges mar
nioratus) was published a few years
ago by It. I). O. Johnson. These fish
ran climb, by means of suction ap
paratus, not only tip the steeply-Inclined
bed of mountain torrent, but
even up a smooth, vertical surface.
Mr. Johnson saw some of them climb
a vertical distance of IB feet In half
an hour, up a wall of rock over which
trickled a thin lllin of water.
In nee! Ion with n recent publica
tion of thl article, (J. IC. Noble states
that other species of llsh are known to
rllmh In the same manner. Several of
these occur In the Himalaya. Neiim
chllus ruplcola, and perhaps other upe
cles of mountain ryprlnlds, adhere to
the rocks by meons of their smooth
ventral skin nnd enlarged lips. Tho
sllurld genera Pseudechenels und
(llyptostenium cling by means of a
well-developed abdominal sucker.
The mountain torrents of the Hima
laya form the nursery for many spe
cies of frogs. Their tadpoles, like
the Dili, have become adapted to their
Im-alloii; some t llng by means of their
Hps and ventral musculature, while
others poess u well-developed ven
tral sucker. Hclentlllc American.
