Simple Act* That Ara Too Difficult
For Simian« to Laarn.
It would be a very simple matter for
a fourteen months old child to leain
to pull In. by menus of a very light
toy wooden rake, an object which it
could not reach with its hands, and yet
Jimmie, a very tame Rhesus monkey
of mine, writes John B. Watson In
The World Today, spent many days in
trying to learn this simple act and
had not learned to manipulate the rake
when our patience ran out. Jimmie
was kept moderately hungry at the
time of the experiments; he was teth
ered Just out of reach of wme very
tempting food (malaga grapes). A light
top wooden rake was given him. In
stinctively he grasped it. bit it. then
dropped It and began straining at his
tether and reaching out ns far as possi
ble with his foreleg, making vain ef
forts to scratch in his food. The rake
was then put around one of the gra]>es.
and the handle extended tow aril Jim
mie. Instantly he grasped the handle
as before and jerked it. and the grape
rolled within reach of his pew. The
rake was dropped and forgotten and
the faithful paw utilized for the com
pletion of the act.
Now what happens when the grape
has been eaten? The rake Is still with
in his reach, and the grapes are still
outside the pale. Does he perceive the
relationship existing between “food ,
out of reach, rake will lengthen paw, 1
ergo, use rake?” Not Jimmie. And be
Is the brightest of six. As long as you
will kindly hook the blade of the rake
around the grape and extend the han-
die toward him he will condescend to
pull in the rake and consequently the
grape, but he has never yet both
pushed out and then pulled in the rake
of his own Initiative.
THE BLACK SEA.
Its Waters So Badly Poisoned That
Life Is Practically Impossibl«.
Few persons, probably, other than
those engaged in the pursuit of sci
ence, are aware that the Black sea
presents an Interest of Its own to the
zoologist and the geologist shared by
no other part of the ocean at the pres-
Throughout the greater part of the

of a number of creatures whose busi
ness it Is to consume the bodies of the
members of the surface fauna which
after death sink to the bottom. In the
Black sen. however, says the Field, ow

scavengers are totally wanting over
the greater part of the bottom, so that
the carcasses of the creatures which
fall from above are left to <lecoro;>ose,
which they speedily do at the com

By their decomposition two soluble
compounds, carbonate of nmmon'a and
