DRESS THEIR OWN WOUNDS.
Some Birds That Possess Great Knowledge of
There are not a few birds that
possess a knowledge of the prin
ciples of surgery that is not far
from supernatural. The wood
cock, the partridge and some
other birds are able to dress
their wounds with considerable
skill. A french naturalist says
that on several occasions he has
killed woodcock that were, when
shot, convalescing from wounds
previously . received. In every
instance he found the old injury
neatly dressed with down pluck
ed from the stem of feathers and
skillfully arranged over the
wound evidently by the long
beak of the bird. In some in
stances a solid plaster was thus
formed, and in others ligatures
had been applied to wounded or
One day he killed a bird that
evidently had been severly
wounded at some recent period.
The wound was covered and pro
tected by a sort of network of
feathers which had been plucked
by the bird from its own body
and so arranged as to form a
plaster completely covering and
protecting the wounded surface.
It had evidently acted as hemo
static in the first place and sub
sequently as a shield covering
the wound. The feathers were
fairly netted together,. passing
alternately under and above each
other and forming a textile fab
ric of great protective power.
Birds are often four.d whose
limbs have been broken by shot
with the fractured ends neatly
joined and ligated. M. Dumon
teil tells of a woodcock that had
been shot by a sportsman on the
afternoon of a certain day. Af
ter a long search the bird was
taken up, but it was discovered
the next morning by an accidenat.
In the meantime the wounded
legs were found to be neatly
ligated, and exqisitely neat ban
daehvng been placed around
eacn limb. The poor bird had
in dressing its wound entangled
its beak with some long, soft
feathers, and had it rnot been
discovered it would have died of

The Laughter of Savages.
The general impression one derives
from the accounts given is certainly
that savage tribes are not victims of a
sullen despair, but, on the contrary,
have a large and abundant mirth.
Their laughter and other signs of good
spirits are of the most energetic kind.

sure us on this point. The Tasma
nians, Ling Roth tells us, accompanied
their loud bursts of laughter with
movements of the hands to the head
and quick stapping movements of the

of the men's laughter is sometimes
specially noted. A recent visitor to
central Africa regrets that under Eu

hearty laughter of the men is being re
placed by what is known as the "mis

You may find in the sea devil a curi

adjusting reproduction. The cod lays
several hundred thousand eggs at a
spawning because nearly all of them
must necessarily be lost while floating
on the waves and those which hatch
are mostly devoured. But the sea devil,
which produces but a single young one
at a time, retains the latter in its belly
until the infant creature is from four
