Consumption and Pneumonia Common— Snakes Die of Cancer. “What diseases are wild beasts in captivity subject to?” was the ques tion a writer for the Washington Star put to a leading animal trainer. “Well,” was the reply, “monkeys for the most part die of consumption and pneumonia. Antelopes, moose, deer and other browsing beasts die be- j cause proper food cannot be found for them. In my opinion, the tannin in the bark and twigs which these ani- j mals feed most largely iijam is what their systems need in order to keep them in a healthy condition. Of course, very little of this is found in the hay ami other foods which are fed to these animals in captivity. In re gard to the far-western animals of this country there seems to he some peculiar quality of the alfalfa and other grasses of the prairie which isab solutely necessary for their susten nance and well being. 1 think that the climatic change has very little in fluence upon them. 1 have shipped lots of mule deer, black-tnilcd deer, antelope and Kooky mountain sheep to Europe and the continent, but they did not live one year. You see that moose, for instance, live largely upon lichen and hark. Of course, those foods cannot he secured so far from the; forests, and hay proves to be a very poor substitute, i have no doubt but if these animals could he supplied with their natural food they would live ns long as lions and tigers. “All the African, Indian and Aus tralian animals come to this country through a general depot in Germany. If any weakly specimens arrive in that country they are kept there until they recover. While in transit across the ocean it is a very common thing for noncarnivora to go without food for ten days, and they are often seasick. This is part icularly true of llamas, an telopes and camels. There is a good deal of ignorance about the medical treatment of wild animals. Those which feed upon grass are treated in sickness much the same as a horse. In the case of lions, tigers and beasts of the cat family generally the same medicines which are given to a dog under similar circumstances are used. “One of the most difficult of species to keep alive is the South American tapir. They are brought chiefly from the Amazon river and belong to the pig family. Like the monkeys, they all die of consumption. Snakes, as a rule, die of cancer. I have often tak en from the mouth of a python pieces of decayed tissue as large as a walnut. This disease is produced by the habit of the snakes striking their fangs in to wood or any hard substance with which they come in contact. The fangs are usually broken off in these attacks and cancer supervenes. As soon as I detect the cancerous growth in the mouth of a snake 1 know that the reptile is doomed. “I remember a magnificent Bengal tiger, which went mad from convul sions brought on by eating too much, and in a frenzy the tiger ate off her own tail close up to the body, and de voured every inch of it, including the hair. “About throe year? ngo T lost three rare Koodoo antelopes in a very curi ous manner. 'I hey were confined in a stable which was infested with rats. Late one night I heard a great hubbub in the stable. Opening the door I found the antelopes springing all over t lie startle, striking their horns against the flooring overhead and acting as if they were frightened out of their wits I noticed that they looked at a particular corner, and when I saw a rat come out the effect was magical upon the antelopes. 1 tried in vain to quiet them, and the next morning they were found dead in the stable. Thpy bad died from fright.” - — » m —.—_ Many hearts beat in sympathy " it,h the sufferers of Jacksonville, Florida.

Thankful Orilla Hurd Uves in the beautiful village of Brighton. Livingston Co., Mich. This venerable and highly respected lady was born in the year 1812, the year of the great war. In Hebron. Washington Co., New York. She came to Michigan in 1840, the year of “Tippecanoe and Tyler too. All her faculties are excellently preserved, and possessing a very re* tentive memory, her mind is full of interesting reminiscences of her early life, of the early days of the State of Michigan and the interesting and re markable people she has met. and the stirring events of which she was a wit ness. But nothing in her varied and manifold recollections are more mar velous and worthy of attention than are her experiences in the use of JOHNSTON S SAR8APARILLA. Mrs. Hurd Inherited a tendencv and pre disposition to scrofula, that terribly destructive blood taint which has cursed and Is cursing the lives or thousands and marking thousands more as vic tims of the death angel. Transmitted from generation to generation. It la found In neary every family in one form or another. It may make its aj^ pearance In dreadful running sores, in unsightly swellings In the neck or goitre, or in eruptions of varied forms. Attacking the mucous membrane, It may be known as catarrh In the head, or developing in the lungs It may be, anu often is, the prime cause or consumption. Speaking of her case, Mrs. Hurd says: “I was troubled for many year* with a bad skin disease. My arms an<j limbs would break out In a mass of sores, discharging yellow matter. My neck began to swell and became very unsightly in appearance. My body wna covered with scrofulous eruption*.. y ejes®l*° greatly Inflamed and weakened, and they pained me very mue . . Iy blood was In a very bad condition and my head ached severely requent intervals, and I had no appetite. I had sores also In my ears. I was in a miserable condition. I had tried every remedy that had been recom mended. and doctor after doctor had failed. One of the best physicians la the state told me I must die of scrofulous consumption, as internal abcesse* ere beglnnh.g to form. I at length was told of I)r.
