<p><syn><b>Syn.</b> -- To give up; yield; forego; cede; surrender; resign; abdicate; quit; relinquish; renounce; desert; forsake; leave; retire; withdraw from.</syn> -- <usage><er>To Abandon</er>, <er>Desert</er>, <er>Forsake</er>. These words agree in representing a person as <xex>giving up</xex> or <xex>leaving</xex> some object, but differ as to the mode of doing it. The distinctive sense of abandon is that of giving up a thing absolutely and finally; as, to abandon one's friends, places, opinions, good or evil habits, a hopeless enterprise, a shipwrecked vessel. <xex>Abandon</xex> is more widely applicable than <xex>forsake</xex> or <xex>desert</xex>. The Latin original of <xex>desert</xex> appears to have been originally applied to the case of deserters from military service. Hence, the verb, when used of <ex>persons</ex> in the active voice, has usually or always a bad sense, implying some breach of fidelity, honor, etc., the leaving of something which the person should rightfully stand by and support; as, to <ex>desert</ex> one's colors, to <ex>desert</ex> one's post, to <ex>desert</ex> one's principles or duty. When used in the passive, the sense is not necessarily bad; as, the fields were <ex>deserted</ex>, a <ex>deserted</ex> village, <ex>deserted</ex> halls. <ex>Forsake</ex> implies the breaking off of previous habit, association, personal connection, or that the thing left had been familiar or frequented; as, to forsake old friends, to <ex>forsake</ex> the paths of rectitude, the blood <ex>forsook</ex> his cheeks. It may be used either in a good or in a bad sense.</usage><br/

<p><syn><b>Syn.</b> -- Admission; access; entrance; initiation.</syn> <usage> -- <er>Admittance</er>, <er>Admission</er>. These words are, to some extent, in a state of transition and change. <xex>Admittance</xex> is now chiefly confined to its primary sense of access into some locality or building. Thus we see on the doors of factories, shops, etc. \'bdNo <xex>admittance</xex>.\'b8 Its secondary or moral sense, as \'bd<xex>admittance</xex> to the church,\'b8 is almost entirely laid aside. <xex>Admission</xex> has taken to itself the secondary or figurative senses; <as>as, <ex>admission</ex> to the rights of citizenship; <xex>admission</xex> to the church; the <xex>admissions</xex> made by one of the parties in a dispute</as>. And even when used in its primary sense, it is not identical with <xex>admittance</xex>. Thus, we speak of <xex>admission</xex> into a country, territory, and other larger localities, etc., where <xex>admittance</xex> could not be used. So, when we speak of <xex>admission</xex> to a concert or other public assembly, the meaning is not perhaps exactly that of <xex>admittance</xex>, viz., access within the walls of the building, but rather a reception into the audience, or access to the performances.

<p><note><hand/ The Amphibia are distinguished by having usually no scales, by having eggs and embryos similar to those of fishes, and by undergoing a complete metamorphosis, the young having gills. There are three living orders: (1) The tailless, as the frogs (<ord>Anura</ord>); (2) The tailed (<ord>Urodela</ord>), as the salamanders, and the siren group (<ord>Sirenoidea</ord>), which retain the gills of the young state (hence called <ord>Perennibranchiata</ord>) through the adult state, among which are the siren, proteus, etc.; (3) The C\'d2cilians, or serpentlike Amphibia (<ord>Ophiomorpha</ord> or <ord>Gymnophiona</ord>), with minute scales and without limbs. The extinct Labyrinthodonts also belonged to this class. The term is sometimes loosely applied to both reptiles and amphibians collectively.</note><br/

Several species are found in the United States. They may be distinguished from the ordinary mosquitoes of the genus <gen>Culex</gen> by the long slender palpi, nearly equaling the beak in length, while those of the female <gen>Culex</gen> are very short. They also assume different positions when resting, <gen>Culex</gen> usually holding the body parallel to the surface on which it rests and keeping the head and beak bent at an angle, while <gen>Anopheles</gen> holds the body at an angle with the surface and the head and beak in line with it. Unless they become themselves infected by previously biting a subject affected with malaria, the insects cannot transmit the disease.</def><br/
