Tobacco For Sheep.
I have helped dissect lambs dying of
tapeworm that had had all the tobacco
they would eat for months previously,
writes Joseph, E. Wing In the Breeder's
Gazette. It may help some, but assur
edly it will not prove a sure preven
tive of tapeworms. Tobacco seems to
aid greatly In keeping down nodular
disease nnd stomach worms. Tho so
crct of success seems to bo to salt tho
tobacco only very little, then feeding
it In unlimited amounts nnd giving no
other salt. It seems to do the sheep uo
harm to cat it lu fairly large nmounts,
nnd most failures In Its uso come from
using too llttlo of It.

Ducks Are Prolific Layers.

Tho Indian Itunner is the best known

This duck Is smaller than the Orp

eggs, sometimes nbovo 250 a year.

equivalent to -100 lion eggs, wo got n

This duck Is a great forager and re
quires little or no feeding when given

It Is very hardy and prefers to roost
outdoors on tho ground, except In se

Inches high Is sufficient.
The llcsh of tho Indian Runner Is

The Fer-dq-lance the Most Ven

Little Chance For a Victim of the
Fangs of This Terror of the Island
of Martinique The Cat and tho Mon
goose Its Most Formidable Enemies.
Every one Is perfectly well nwaro
that there exists a largo number of
venomous serpents we have many of
them right here In tho United States;
the rattler, for example but probably
no other spot In the known world has
such a death dealing reptile us has the
French lslnud ot Martinique, nestling
In the limpid blue waters of the Carib
bean seu. It Is thu fer-de-lance, sci
entifically known as Trlgoncephalun
lancclatus. that can beyond the shad
ow ol a doubt lay claim to being tho
most deadly serpent of the earth. Its
sting means nluio&t certain death.
There are eight distinct varieties,
thu most commou being n dark gray
and black speckled, which coloring
enables it to conceal itselt easily
among roots nnd stumps of trees. An
other variety is u Clear, bright yellow,
and when hidden In the freshly cut
cnue It cnu haidly be distinguished
from the stalks. It may also be a dark
yellow or coal black with a yellow
It Is not n huge snake, rarely ex
ceeding live feet In length nnd In cir
cumference approxlmntoly the size of
a child's nrm. To repent, the sting
menus almost certnlu death, and
should not the service of a physician,
or "panseur," as the natives call blm,
be obtained within a very short tlmo
tho venom does Its deadly work tho
flesh grows cold, softens, becomes
pulpy, changes In color, quickly be
gins to spot, nnd a 'great chilliness
creeps through tho blood. This lasts
only a few minutes possibly half an
hour then death.
If tbo victim Is fortunate enough to
got a physician upon tho sccno post
haste and no, artery or vein has been
pierced tbero is hope just a faint
hope but even if llfo Is saved the dan
ger Is not entirely removed, for In
many cases necrosis of tbo tissues fol
lows. Tho flesh corrupts and falls from
the bones, mid tho body Vnoldcra ns

Tho fer-do-lanco Is a lighter and no
mistake ubout it aggressive and pug
nacious, and domestic animals, with
tbo cat as tho one exception, stand a
very poor show In n battle. Pussy, In
about nlno cases out of ten, will como
out ot tho scrap with colors flying be
cause of tho fact that It Is apparently
quite as quick In movement and at tho
snmo tlmo uses what may bo termed
ring generalship.
Tbero is but ono animal other than
tho cat that successfully wages war
upon the fer-de-lance. It is the mon

A bnttlo between these two natural

When tbor meet, nod If tho snako

for battle, us docs tho mongoose, but

about ono mlnuto for thorn to get fully

so to speak, as by prizefighters.
Tbo mongoose circles about tbo rep
tile, always at a safo distance and
"drawing Ore," Inviting it by moving
closer nnd closer to dart out its head

possible manner, causing the snake to

There Is more than one reason for
letting the children blow soap bubbles.
It's good, harmless fun, for one thing, 1
and keeps them out of worse mischief.
It can result In nothing worso than a
little soap In the eyes and a llttlo soap-!
Buds on the clothes, boh of which aro
comparatively harmless. 1
But It is more than good fun. It is
beneficial to the lungs. Thero aro doc-1
tors who recommend It as an excellent
wny or exercising ttio lungs, nnd nence 1
greatly strengthening to them.
Deep breathing exercises nro freely 1
.recommended, "but who could think of
anything stupider than pulling in and
pulling out great gulps of fresh air.

funnel. Invrt tho mouth of tho fun-',

you can through the tube nnd note i
how you expand your lungs ns well as !
