Whey Find Their Prey by Sight, Not
by Sense of Sm*11.
A study of the hahits ot tiesh eating
birds shows that If they possess the
sense of smell at all it is not suffi
eiently acute to enable them to use it
in finding food.
All observers are agreed tha:t when
a carcass is hidden by never so slight
a screen it is safe from the attacks of
vultures and other carrion seekers,
but the most remarkable proof of the
neffectiveness of the ser se (if it exist
gt all) is afforded byv experiences which
Dr. Guillemard wat. good enough to re
late to me. Many times it has hap
pened, he tells ue, that, having shot a
wild beast or other game, which was
too heavy to carry home , he has dis
emboweled it and hidden the carcass in
the hole of an "ant bear."
On returning with natives to carry it
to camp he has found a circle of vul
tures standing round the spot where
the offal had been thrown, completely
unaware of the carcass within a few
yards of their beaks. Of observations
proving the possession of the sense I
know none unless we are willing to
accept as evidence the eiief which is
very general among fanciers that birds
are attached to the smell of anise and
the. similar belief of gamekeepers in
some parts of the country that they
are attracted by valerian. It is said
that pigeons may be prevented from
deserting the dovecot by smearing
their boxes with oil of anise. Poach
ers are supposed to lure hen pheasants
from a wood by anointing gateposts
with tincture of valerian.-Nature.
WAIT FOR AN APPETITE.
Do Not Eat a meal Unless You Are
It is not wise to eat unless there is a
real, natural hunger. It is far better to
miss a meal than to eat without an ap
A prolific cause of: chronic indiges
tion is eating from habit and simply
because it is mealtime. To eat when
not hungry is to eat without relish, and
food taken without relish is worse than
wasted. Without relish the salivary
glands do not act, the gastric fluids are
not freely secreted and the best o.
foods will not be digested. Many per
fectly harmless dishes are severely
condemned for no other reason than
they were eaten without relish and due
Hunger makes the plainest food en
joyable. It causes vigorous secretion
and outpouring of all the digestive
fluids-the sources of phyalin, pepsin,
tryspin, etc.-without a plentiful sup
ply of which no foeds can be perfectly
Wait far an appetite if it takes a
week. Fasting is one of the saving
graces. It has a spiritual significance
only through Its great physical and
physiologic importance. X breakfast is
a bore or lunch a matter of indifference
eut one or both of them out, Wait for
distinct and unmistakable hunger and
thea eat slowly. If you do this you
need ask few questions as to the pro
priety and digestibility of what you
eat, and it need not be predigested.

OUR OLDEST DOLL.
It Was Brought From England Ove
Two Centuries Ago.
Long, long ago, when Williamax Pen
sailed 'fron Englanl on his seconl

he brought with himn on ihe good shi

passenger is the sole survivor of tiai
voyage across the Atlantie, hich wai
made over 20) years ago.
William re:an had a little d:auglte
named Letitia. Letitia heard her fi

saw and heard in Peinsylvania on hi
first visit to this country, thousands c
miles distant from Letitia's home. II
often told her about little Miss It
