EATERS OF WOOD
Odd Dietetic Habit That Is by No
Means Rare.
On North Coast of Siberia the Natives
Prefer It to Other More Nat
ural Foods.
In several places on1 the north coast
of Siberia tle natives eat wood, not
beciaiuse. they uist, but because they
like It, says the Lancet (London).
Wood Is genlerally eatenl evenl when
fish Is plentiful, their favorite dish be
ing prepared by scraping off thin lay
ers ilimediately under the bark of
liirch log.s, chopping thei line and boll
ing theml up with snow.
It generally turns out that dietetic
hablis which at first sight seet curl
ous have i rational baisis. The vir
I tit' of cod-liver oil no longer rest on
empirical experience and at vague idea
tIt its ellieacy was proportional to Its
nastiness; the reputation of fresh vege
tables was gained in the days before
the Dutci taught us to grow turnips,
and hardy cabbages. and when some
thing Ilke scurvy wais an annual expe
rience of the early spring.
It is interesting to guess the ren
son for w'ood eating. The cellulose
whlch forms so large a parl of a
herbivorous diet Is now recognized as
being a subsidlary source of energy
through the fatty actids produced in
the stomach and bowels by ceilulose
splitting bacteria. But the modifled
foris of ceilulose which formi tlie mass
of tree' truinks are hardly attacked by
tile bacteria of the alimentary cafnal.
It is possible that'the Siberians have
by practice and habit so altered their
intestinal flora that they can deal
with lignin with advantage, but this
seems a troublesome way of getting
energy wh)en fish and milk are avail
able, and it appears hardly likely that
the expanation of wood-eating lies
ilong these lines.
Bu1t if the habit suggests at the 1110
ment no rationale, it is curious to note
that it falls in line vitJi the tastes of
some other animals. The fondness of
ralits for bark and the immediate
suhiJacent tissues is well known. It is,
periaps, worth noting, too, that these
same invaluable experimental animals
are peculiarly fond of hard, woody
leaves-as, for example, holly, gorse
or hawthorne, and sometimes seem act
usally to prefer them to cabbage or
milk thistle. Ponies also arer apt to
be possessed of a devil or some curt
ols appetite, and will set to work on
big forest trees and kill them by clean
ing off the bark and conducting tissues
down to the hard wood. These and
other examples of sImilar tastes sug
gest that there is solething partleiu
larly good in the outer layers of trees,
and it is natural to think that it prob
ably resides in the young conducting
tissues rather than In the outer bark.
Of its precise nature it Is Idle to
speculate.
Orchestras in the Steerage.
"Times have changed," said Antonilo,
as 1he twirled his partner to the rhythi
of musIc. "When I come over five
years ago I no can wait till ship land.
Now-music twice each day-this good
ship I"
Anyone with a discerning eye would
see that tImes have changed in thle
thlirdl class sectIon, remarks tile New
York Sun. Insteadl of the old listless,
hlalf-frightenedl attitude of those whio
knock alt our gates, there is gayety
and spontaneous fun In the steerage
nowv. Imiprovemlents In accommlnoda
tlon and deck sports on tile big liners
account to some extent for the change.
But tihe great~st of these changes Is
music. Tils Innovation is a potent
factor for frIendship, common Inter
est and haippiness.
Youngsters from villages In Czecho
slovakia, dlark-eyed bambinos from
Oleily ; chlatteiring, brighit, quIck little
citizens of France-all of them listen
to the music with a kinship of spirIt.
And when thle orchestra turns from
"pieces" andl the decks are enilvenedl
by3 dan1ce music, their eider-s show
their aplpreciatio~n andi enjoyment.
Fasting to Cure Fits.

Dr. Ilugh Conklin toi tihe 26th annual
conlveintionl of the Ameriean Osteo
ipathliC assocIatIon. IEplepsy, accor-d
ing tto Dr-. Conklin, is caused lby the
impiroIper functiomng of certain glands
inl the bowels. By fasting for 22 days,
taking only water, a cure maly 1be ef
fected, he0 said.
"Many people," saltd Dr. ConklIn,

"Caution."
The psychology of New York statte's
hlighiway wvarning signs Is inlteresting.
Instead of sayIng "dainger-," "sharp
curve ahleadl," "bridge," etc., these
signs sImply r'ead "Caution."' This
isn't a very exciting warning, eliher
on paper or on the signpost, but it ex
cites the curiosity. Tihe drIver

a washout or a steam roiler. And b~e
cause he doesn't know lie is interest
