methods of taking fish are very much

witnessed Its operations on n river In
the Islander New. Uritnln.
He enwii cassowary come down to
tlio water's edge and stand for ho mo
minutes apparently watching tlio wa

river whero It wns about three feet

spread Its wings out, submerging

Tho bird remained motionless and
kcptvlts eyes closed as If In sleep. It
remained In this position for a quarter
of an hour, when, suddenly closing Its
wings and straightening Its feathers, It
stepped out on tho bank. Hero It shook
Itsclf.sevcrnl times, whereupon n quan
tity of small (Ishcs fell out of Its wings
and from amid Its feathers. Theso tho
bird Immediately picked up nnd swnl
lowed. Tho fishes had evidently mistaken
tho feathers for a kind of weed that
grows In tho water along tho banks of
tho rivers In this Island nud which
much resembles tho fenlhtrs of tho
cassowary, r Tho smaller fishes hldo In

tho beast that slew him to warn him
of danger nnd to guldo htm to now vic

for tho tiger's dally wants to the
amount of 1 rupee n day that Is to

rupees ho will not bo allowed another
victim for fivo days.

ECZEMA LODGES IN THE SKIN
Nl a 8lo4 IHssaae-Csraa'ky OH 1
WlatergrMa Csisesaa. '
For many years eczema was sup.
posed to be a blood disease and wa
erroneously treated as such, but no
the best authorities agree that ccmbu
is only a skin disease, and must be
cured through tbe skin. The eminent
skin specialist, Dr. D, D. Dennis, first
discovered the eciema germ, and hla
discovery was quickly taken up In,
Germany and France.
To kill the eciema germ, and at the
tame time heal the skin, Dr. Dennis 1
compounded oil o( wintcrgreen, thymol 1
glycerine, etc. The remedy is a liquid;
not a mere salve, hence it sinks right 1
Into the pores of tbe skin. Washing .
with this oil of wintcrgreen compound
seems to take away tbe itch at once;
soon the scales drop away and the dis-
ease dissppears. The prescription haa .
now been used so long as to have provn
en Its absolute merit, and we do not -hesitate
to express our confidence la
