Emile Blanchard. The author has investigated with great care the entozoa inhabit-ing the bodies of domestic animals, particularly the " Douve du Foie'* (Fasciola hepatica, Linn.), which is found in the liver of cows and sheep, particularly in some parts of Germany. He has assured himself, by the examination of a large number of cattle, that these parasites do do not occur in the liver in any other than the adult condition, or at least very nearly full-grown. In the biliary ducts, on the other hand, the ova are to be found in great numbers, and in passing towards the inferior extremity of the intestinal tract these appear to undergo a process of incubation, being more advanced as they pass down-wards. The intermediate stages between the ova and the adult animal are never to be found. It is, therefore, nearly certain that the ova pass out of the intestines with the excrements, and undergo development in some other situation, apart from the body of the in-fested animal ; and that, after attaining nearly their full growth, they are received along with the food into the stomachs of other individuals, and thence pass again to the liver, where they propagate a new race. M. Blanchard has also remarked, in regard to other entozoa, their occurrence only in the adult condition in the parts principally in-fested. This is the case with the Amphistoma conicum, which inliabits the first stomach of cows and oxen, with the Brachylcemus variegatus, which occurs in the lung of the Rana esculenta, and the B. cylin-draceus, in that of the Rana temporaria. The Tcenia and Bothrioce-phalus (tapeworm**) of the human subject are, on the contrary, to be found in every stage of growth, a whole family sometimes oc-curring in the intestines of one individual.
