Wunstorf states that according to his obser
vations, tlio metallic luster of the scales o
fishes, is due to tho presence of the purest
silver, and that the 1200th part of a gram
of silver is contained in the scale of a carp.
Aftor this, we presume a scaly fellow will
be no term of reproach, and fish scales will
rise in the public estimation considerably.
How the poets will talk about the "silver
coated carp, whoso specie-ova sheen," etc !
Wonder if the fish don't deposit thoir scafes
in tho banks of some rivers !
