Other lenses were immersed in a mixture
of equal parts Ringer's solution and water,
with and without chloroform, and weighed at
intervals. No regular differences were observed
between the weighing in the two cases.

The fluids in which the lenses were
immersed were tested at intervals for proteins.
The one containing chloroform gave a positive
reaction rather earlier than the other. The
presence of proteins was also obvious in this
specimen, the proteins being carried down by
the chloroform.

The condition of the lenses was different in
the two cases. The lens in distilled water
alone remained clear throughout. On puncture
of its capsule a clear fluid containing proteins
escaped and the lens inside was found to
be comparatively firm and quite clear. The
