    THE RECENT SOLAR ECLIPSE IN INDIA.—From a brief paragraph which appears in the Pioneer Mail for January 25 we learn that some interesting photographs of the partial eclipse of the sun were obtained at Dehra Dun (N.W. Prov. India) on January 14. A drop in the temperature of 4° corresponded with the passage of the shadow, and there was a very marked decrease in the illumination of the surrounding landscape. Venus became clearly visible to the naked eye.
