YOU don't have to bother to
load a Remington Autoloading
Gun. The recoil does all the work
of ejecting the empty shell and
throwing a loaded one into place.
You pull and release the trigger for
each of the five shots.
Pleasant to shoot because of
slight kick. Absolutely safe because
of the Remington Solid Breech
Hammerless feature. Easy to
handle and quick to point.
. Try one on ducVs or geese. You
will agree with the sportsman who
wrote "I wouldn't take a $1000 for
my Remington Autoloader if I
couldn't Bet another." Anyone can
afford one, the price is so moderate.
If your dealer can't show you
one, write us for catalogue

Without its Adaptability.
TTENTION has been at
tracted to the methods
of healing employed by
dumb animals, which
study at John Hopkins
University has recently
shown to be remarkable and not with
out its adaptability to humankind as
It is believed that the dog has a valu
able secret for man in the treatment of
wounds with its saliva. It is stated that
the saliva of the chg has a perfect bac
tericidal and healing power, and there is
little doubt in the minds of those who
are now delving into the subject that
this same agency is a good antiseptic.
Proof is apparent in the prompt use of
saliva upon his wounds by the dog and
its speedy recovery through this treat
ment. It was a matter of comment
when this matter was tirst undertaken
at the Hopkins medical school that no
bacteriologist had taken the hint from
the dog's lesson and engaged in experi
ment along this line.
That the dog possesses a marked sur
gical instinct is verified by many in
stances out of the commonplace. A Mr.
Young, who was engaged for a long
time in missionary work in northwestern
Canada, had among his dogs, of which
a large number were necessary for draw
ing his sleds, one Rover. This dog not
only attended its own wounds but ac
tually performed the duties of surgeon
to all of its fellows. Galls, wounds,
frozen feet and other like injuries con
sequent upon the peculiar toil they had
to perform were systematically and suc
cessfully treated by Dr. Rover. The
dog had one remedy, the annointing of
the afflicted part with saliva. Where-
ever it applied the remedy the cure was
speedy. It was noticed that parts of
the toes of the dog doctor's patients
which could not be reached by the dog
doctor's tongue went unhealed. The
Rev. Mr. Young says that the Indians
in admiration or the dog s wonderful
learning called it Muskeke Atim, mean
ing the surgeon.
The dog is not alone in the possession
of this means for curing the various ills
to which its tribe is heir. Cats, cattle.
rats, mice and monkeys are all known to
lick their wounds when they can get at
them, and when they cannot do so they
endeavor to get their companions to per
form this office for them.
If the queer little worlds which they
know were possessed of newspapers in
telligible to them it would doubtless be
true that they would be frequent con
tributors to those columns devoted to
home remedies and they would tell in
glowing and convincing language how
they had tried this method with such
success that they would have no other.
The John Hopkins men who are in
quiring into this subject now call atten
tion to an incident narrated by Dr.
James Weir in which a large monkey
The monkey scratched his shoulder
badly on a nail which projected from the
side of its cage. Immediately upon sus
taining the injury the queer creature
went to a corner and selected a handful
of clean sawdust, which it pressed
firmly on the profusely bleeding scratch.
The monkey held the sawdust in place
until the bleeding stopped, which was in
but a few minutes. The sawdust was
saturated with blood, which had dried
and formed an excellent coating for the
wound, protecting it until entirely well.
It should be mentioned that the dog's
medical instinct does not halt at the
saliva treatment. It is a physician as
well as a surgeon. The dog that goes
searching around in a field with appar
ent aimlessness and finally settles down
to chew up some unattractive and un
palatable greens is taking a prescrip
tion taught it by nature. The blades it
eats are those of the couch grass which
your physician would probably desig
nate on his prescription blank as Trili
cum repens, and it performs the offices
of a purgative.
Instances could be recited at length of
animal display of the medical instinct.
Horses, and even the less intelligent
mules, eat clay when they are afflicted
with a stomach disorder commonly
designated by the veterinary as sours.
Cattle suffering from eczema have fre
quently been known to plaster an
affected hoof and joint with mud. Dr.
Weir tells of a cow which deliberately,
broke the ice on a pond in the winter
and tieated an itching joint to a bath of
The fondness of the domestic cat for
catnip is not a condition of the mind at
tendant upon the enjoyment of absolute
health, for it is only when the cat is
somewhat under the weather that it will
seek the solace of the soothing proper
ties of this vegetation. Under such cir
cumstances cats have been known to
travel miles to get the catnip.
Not the least remarkable of all the
achievements of dumb creatures in the
line of surgery and medicine are those
of the birds. Dr. George M. Gould cites
instances of woodcock killed which
when examined were found to be recov
ering from previous wouuds inflicted by
hunters. Such wound made by small
shot in the body of the bird were neatly
dressed with down plucked from the
stems of feathers and deftly arranged
about the injured place. This work was
evidently, done with the beak of the
bird . The skill of members of the feath
ered tribe in building their dainty nests
is testimony to their ability in accom
plishing work of this character with
neatness and despatch. Of the success
of this work Dr. Gould bears witness
in the statement that the woodcock were
found to be convalescent from the old
The same authority tells of cases of
bone setting by birds which would be
beyond belief if man was not already
familiar with the marvellous intelligence
