the fact that one cannot cut it with a
saw without sneezing, as the fine dust
has exactly tho <-ffi>ct of snuff. Even
in planing the wood it will sometimes
cause sneezing. No Insect, worm or
barnacle will touch it. It is very bitter
to tbe taste, and when placed in water
it will sink. The color is light brown
and tbe grain very close and hard.
For dock work, piers or jetties it is a
useful timber, lasting a long while un

"In June, 1899, I became bilious and
subject to dizzy spells. I had no ap-
petite, my heart seemed to flutter at
times and beat irregularly, and dark
spots seemed to float before my eyes.
This continued for about six months.
During that time I was troubled with
lameness in my back and pains over
my kidneys. I was under a physi-
cian's care and he told me that my
trouble was biliousness and inflamma-
