A FOWL'S G2ZARD.
Kliyetology of an Inter sting- Portion of
a Chlcken'a A latomy.
A fowl's gizzard, wh re so many lost
articles turn up, is a cur ous trap as well
as a necessary vital organ of the fowL
Diamonds, pearls, coin buttons, tacks,
orange peel and about everything else
save dynamite have b-en found in the
gizzards of fowls.
A study of this org in is interesting.
Experiments have demo istr.-ited that what
may be called the gas ric juice in fowls
has not sufficient powei to dissolve their
food without the aid of the grinding ac
tion of the gizzard, llefore the food is
prepared for digestioi, therefore, the
grains must be subject jd to a triturating
process, and such as sre not sufficiently
bruised in this manner it-fore passing into
the gizzard are there reduced to the proper
state by its natural action.
The action of the gzzard is, in this re-
pect, mechanical, this organ serving as a
mill to grind the feed o pieces, and then,
by means of its powerfu 1 muscles, pressing
it gradually into the intestines in the
form of pulp. The power at this organ is
said to te sufficient t pulverize hollow
globules of glass in a - ery short time and
solid masses of the si me suKstance in a
few weeks. The rapii ity of this process
aeems to be proportion itc generally to the
size of the bird. A chicken, for example,
breaks up such substances as are received
into its stomach less apidlv than the ca
pon, while the goose performs the same
Operation sooner tha i either. Xeedlos
and even lancets, given turkeys have been
oroKcn in pieces and .oided without any
BfLwrcut injury to tin stomach. The rea
son undoubtedly is th a the larger species
oirtis nave uucKer and more powerful
organs or digestion.
It has loni; been the general opinion that
from some deficiency in the digestive an
paratus, fowls are obi ged to resort to the
Use of -tones and gra el in order to enabli
them to dispose of t:ie food which they
consume. Some have supposed that the
use of stones is to she;. the the gizzanl in
order to lit it to break into smaller frag
ments the hard. anguUr substances which
might be swallowed. They have also been
considered to have a medicinal effect
Others have imagined that they acted as
absorbents for undue iluantities of acids in
the atom act! or as stimulants to digestion.
