not by practice; they are, therefore,

The man who eats because he is hun
gry is, thus far, on a level with the
brutes. The man who stops eating the
moment his hunger is appeased is the
wise man. Nature needs no more food
than she calls for. Continued excess
brings about indigestion or dyspepsia,
with loss of flesh, strength, sleep, am
bition and mental power, and an ac
cumulation of aches, pains and many
dangerous local maladies. The stomach
now can do nothing alone. We must
appeal to artificially digested food
which can also digest other foods. That
is to say, we must use the Shaker Di
gestive Cordial. The effect is prompt
and cheering. The chronic pain and
distress ceases. Appetite presently re
vives. Flesh and vigor gradually comes
back, and the sufferer recovers. But he
must be careful in future. Atrial bot

FOOD IN THE ARCTIC.
ltlrdt Have No Difficulty Finding It In the
Tho number of birds that go to the
arctic regions to breed is "vast beyond
conception." They go not by thousands,
but by millions, to rear their young on
tho tundra. The cause which attracts
thorn is because nowhere in tho world
docs nut ore provide, ut tho same time
and in the same place "such a lavish
prodigality of food." That the barren
swamp of tho tundra should yield a food
supply so groat as to tempt birds to
make journeys of thousands of miles to
roar their young in a land of plenty,
only to bo found beyond tho arctic cir
cle, seems incredible. Tho vegetation
consists of cranberry, cloudberry and
crow-berry bushes. Forced by the per
petual sunshine of tho arctic summer
these bear enormous crops of fruit. But
the crop is not ripe until tho middle and
end of the arctic summer, and if the
fruit eating birds had to wait until it
was ripe they would starve, for they
arrive on the very day of tho melting of
the snow. But each year the snow de
scends on its immense crop of ripe fruit
before the birds have timo to gather it.
It is then preserved beneath the snow,
perfectly fresh and pure, aud tho melt
ing of the snow discloses the bushes
with tho nnconsumed last year's crop
hanging on them or lying, ready to be
ten, on the ground. Tho frozen meal
stretches across the breadth of Asia. It
never decays and is accessible the mo
ment the snow melts. Ages have taught
the birds that they have only to fly to
the arctic circle to find such a store of
"crystallized foods" as will last them
till the bushes are once more forced into
bearing by the perpetual sunlight. The
same heat which frees tho fruit brings
into being the most prolific insect life
in the; world. The mosquito swarms on
the tundra. No European can live there
without a veil after the snow melts. The
gun barrels are black with them, and
the cloud often obscures the sight. Thus
the insect eating birds have only to open
their mouths to fill them with mosqui
toes, and the presence of swarms of ten
der warblers, of cliff chaffs, pipits and
wagtails iu this arctic region is ac
counted for. New York Evangelist.
