5 cast over their whole surface. When the capsule was punctured and the fluid allowed to escape, both capsule and lens were found to be quite clear. The appearance was therefore probably due to a difference in refractive powers of the fluid and lens. Examination of the fluid showed it to contain a trace of dissolved protein, while weighings before and after puncture showed that it accounted for one-third to one-half of the gains in weight at the end of two hours and for more than half the gain in 24 hours. The dogs lenses without capsules showed swelling causing the lens matter to bulge between the three limbs of the lens [text?] which remained as depressions.
