success in applying photography to
fix the indications of different dis-
eases of the eye. Another contribu-

INDITinDALITr IX HIR.
One of the wonders revealed by
the microscope is that human hairs
possess a marked individuality. Not
long ago asinglo hair the evidence
in a murder case was shown Dr.
Jeserich with the request that he
determine whether it was from the
head of the supposed murderes
whoso hair was of the same color.
After examination the specialist de
cided that it was sufficiently unlike
those of the suspected man to acquit
him. The real murderer was subse
quently captured and his hairs were
found to be identical in character
with the one first examined.
ZOOLOGY IX LEGAL MEDICINE.
A curious application of zoological
facts is given by M. Fallot of Mar-
seilles. Last June some fishermen
discovered in the harber of Marseilles
a floating body in an advanced stage
of decomposition. The tissues pre
sen ted the transformation known as
saponification and with the peculiar
appearance of tho skin indicated ac
cording to standard medical au
thority that the body had not laid in
the water more than four months
and a half. The clothing yet clung
to the body however and was
coverpd with barnacles. These were
found to be of two successive
generations and as they are known
to fix themselves to floating objects
during April and May it was con-
cluded that the body had been m the
water at least thirteen months-

fat is not healthy vet we put
lard in nearly everything.
An American is known the
world over as
and even- honest physician says
frankly the grease we eat is large-
ly the cause of it.
So liable is pork to cause dis-
ease that all nations legislate re-
garding it and the demand of
the times is for
and HEALTHY FOOD.
Vegetables are universally con-
ceded to be healthy; beef is
known to be ihe healthiest meat

seed Oil and PURE Beef Suet

lard but is BETTER for cooking
