A large number of animals wash themselves and bathe, as elephants, stags, birds and ants. If wo turn our attention to the question cf reproduc tion, we shall see that all animals eu d:le their young, keep them cle an, wean them at the proper time, and ed ucate them; but these maternal in stincts are irenurntij rudimentary in women of civilized nations. In iac-t, man may take a lessen in hygiene from the lower animals. Animals get rid of t eir parasites by using dust, mud, clay, etc. Those suffering from fever restrict tlieir diet, keep quiet, seek darkness and airy places, drink water, and sometimes even plunge into it. When a dog has lost its appetite it cats that species of grass known as dog's gr.iss (chiendent), which acts as an emetic and purgative. Cats also eat grass. Sheep and cows, when ill,* seek out certain herbs. When dogs are con si inated they eat fatty substances, such as oil and butter, with avidity, until they are purged. The same thing is observed iu horses. An animal suf fering from chronic rheumatism always ketps as far as possible in the sun. The warrior ants have regularly organized ambulances. Latreiile cut the antennæ of an ant, and other ants came and covered the wounded part with a-trans parent fluid secreted from their mouths. If a chimpanzee be wounded, it stops the bleeding by placing its hand on the wound, or dressing it with leaves or grass. When an an'mal lias a wounded leg or arm hanging on, it completes the amputation by means cf its teeth. A dog on being stung in the muzzle by a viper was observed, to plunge its head repeatedly for several days into running water. This animal eventually recovered. A sporting dog was run over bv a carriage. During three weeks iu winter it remained lying in a brook, where its food was taken to it; the ani mal recovered. A terrier dog hurt his light eye; it remained lying under a counter, avoiding light and heat, nl t hough habitually it kept close to the five. It adopted a general treatment, rest and abstinence from f<r d. The loc al treatment consisted in licking the upper surface of the paw, winch it applied to the wounded eye, again licking the paw when it be ame drv. Cats also, when hurt, treat themselves by this simple method of continuous irrigation. M. Delauney cites the ease of a cat which rein ai ; : eil for some t ime 1 yin g cn the 1 ».ink cf a river; also that of another cat which had the singular fortitude to remain for forty-eight hours under a jet of cold wa te . Animals suffering from traumatic, fever treat themselves by the continued application of cold, which M. Delauney considers to be more certain than any of the other methods. In view of these in terer ting facts, we are, he thinks, forced to admit that hygiene and therapeutics, as practiced by animals, may, iu the in terests cf physiology, be studied with advantage. Ke couid go even further, and say that veterinary medicine, and perhaps human medicine, could gather from them some useful indications, pre c sei v because tlicv are prompted bvin •_____ -A?___■_____• .1 _ *' etinct, which are efficacious in the ] »res ervation or the restoration of health. British Medi al Journal. Making Terms. At the battle of Buck!and Mills, where the Michigan Cavalry had it hot and heavy for half a day, a sudden flank movement of one of the regiments cut oil about twenty Confederates who had dismounted and were sheltered by a fence. There was no cscane for them, and a Captain rode forward cry ingout: "Surrender ! surrender ! If you don't surrender we'll riddle you !" • He had almost reached the fence, when a tall, long-haired "Johnny" lilt ed himself up, threw one leg over the top rail and coolly called out: "Say, you, thar! Did you order U 3 to surrender?" "Yes, and be quick about it!* "How many of you 'uns are over thar?" v "A thousand—5,000—enough to cat your whole army up!" "And you want us to surrender?* "Yes—at 'em, boys." "Waal, now, Capting," continued the old Con fed., "don't be in such a drat ted hurry. Here's nineteen of us here, and the boys would like to know how much you'll pay a herd and whether to get the cash or take it on in flicker.
