Heredity in Geese. A correspondent of the ' Revue Scien* tifique ’ vouches for the following story For about twenty years he was in the habit of visiting two or three times each year a farm where was kept a flock of geese, numbering from thirty to thirty-five in the early part of the winter, and in the spring four or five, left for breeding purposes; these also generally being killed a few months later, after the new broods had attained their growth. In the month of July, 1862, on a feast day, the farmer and his men being absent, the geese were forgotten, and were attacked by dogs, which killed many of them. The next evening at twilighc the farmer thought they must have been attacked a second time. Ho found them flying about in their pen, much frightened, but the dogs were nowhere to be seen. The next day this terror reappeared at the same hour as it did .on the following day, and from that time on. The correspondent of the ‘ Revue ’ had forgotten this fact when, ten years later, he chanced to be on the farm one evening, and heard the cackling of the apparently frightened geese. When he asked for an explanation he was told that this had been kept up from the time they had been attacked by the dogs, that there bad been no repetition of the attack, and that the flock had been renewed in the meantime at least three times. If this story is well authenticated, we have a case of the transmission of terror to the third generation in a family of geese.
