This strange contradiction is said to'bo duo:to itue fact of the greater; part , of Dartmoor having. a(4»ially ( been, a; forest,,years ago,.but it was so infested with'fierce wild aninlals, that the ,people'>voro forced,' in self-defence, to 'set'' fire .to the trees* and so, by degrees, the forest was destroyed. ''is.that the soil of the moor is composed of,rich, black, ,,vegetable matter, and that remains of tree trunks haYq.boeh /found ;uijder : the ground. Moreover, the people 'of olio; district have, for generations, enjoyed the privilege of free pasturage, through a grant awarded, their ancestors for ser- vioeajin deitrqylng.wplyes in Daj-tmopr Forest; for the same reason they are allowed to gather the peat which abounds in the fens or marshy lands, and which makes an excellent fuel. The atmosphere of the moor is nearly always moist and foggy. Indeed, tho people who live there say that: "The west wind always bring* wot weather, Tho east wind, wet and cold together; Tho south wind surely brings us rain, The north wind blows It back again," So it seems tho people of Dartmoor have very little dry weather, but in spite of tins salt dampness (or, perhaps because of it), the region is one of remarkable hoalthfulness, and tho little barefoot children of the moor, who live in low huts made of sods, are as fat and rosy a set as can bo found anywhere.— American Agriculturist. LATEST NEWS. DYSPEPSIA. Up to a few weeks ago I considered myself tho ohamplou Dyspeptic of America. During the years that I have been afflicted.I have tried almost everything claimed to be a specific tor Dyspepsia in the hope of finding something that would afford pe.-nmnent relief. I had about made np my nund to abandon medicines when I noticed an endorse- uient of Simmons Liver Regulator by a prominent Georgian, a Jurist whom I knew, and concluded to try its effects in my case, I have used but two bottles and am satisfied that 1 have struck the right thing at last. I felt Its beneficial effects almost immediately. Unlike all other preparation of a similar kind no special instructions is required, as to ; What one shall or shall not eat. Tills fact, alone ought to commend it to all troubled with dyspepsia. J. K. HOLMES. ' Vineland, N. J. CONSTIPATION.

Perley Poore, the veteran journalist and recognized political history authority cf the country,died at 12.-45 this morning. In the earlier part of the night he was resting easy, and his friends and attendants had no idea that the time of mortal dissolution was so near at hand. Just before midnight, however, his . case took a change for the worse, and it became evident that his moments were numbered. He rapidly sank, became finally unconscious, and soon the vital spark was extinguished. A number of, his more intimates -friends were present at the last moments of the famous Character's bventful life. eaus during early mnnnior. It is a larger sort of these water-liaardB (which arc not real Hoards) known in tho middle parts of tho United Slates as mud-puppies and.hullbendara. Tho, Spanish conquerors of Mexico adopted this disgusting-looking roptilu as. food from the Aztoes; hut in place of tho plain cooking followed by the Indians they proferrod to soak it in vinegar and season it with popper ami cloven, The Chinese and Burmese are said to eat lizards, but hero they are by no means alone, for dwellers in dry, poverty-stricken regions in all parts of the globe resort to that food, and oven to serpents. The Apaeheo, 1'ah-UteH, and other red-skin natives of tho arid tablelands of southern Utah, Arizona, regard their forked slicks and gall's for catching lizards as being the most needful of human tools. Earth is swallowed by many depraved savages. Sometimes it is a greasy clay, failed.with vegetable particles; often'it is gritty soil, containing no nutriment whatever. It is not always wild men who have acquired the habit, nor does it always ruin the health. On tho Columbia river fern flour was formerly muck used, while the Canadian Indians are very fond of the wild rice which grows so abundantly, along the great lakes, and of .the seeds of tho lotus and water-lily Svhiph sprouts among ite roccly stems. . Tho natives of Central-America cook their great tree-lizard, tho iguana, sometimes making a pit in tho ground and covering it witli a lire. Soon Have Died.

They speur him with a wooden lancO and drag him dexterously from among tho rooks, : taking, great precautions lest he should upset the canoe boforo ho is "done for.' 1 If it is not convenient to cook him they do not hesitate to cut pieces from tho slimy.mass and devour them raw.. They like better, however, to boil tho "man-sucker," and their only method of cooking: in the old days was to put it. into a clay- chinked basket, partly filled with heated stones, whiclv soon brought tho water to a boiling point. Tho celestials make the most extensive use of the outtlo-ttsh, having both octopods and squids in great abundance. You oau see in all Chinese markets piles of sun-dried squids split open, flattened out, and looking like a small white codfish, with long stiffened f qngcs at the broad end, representing all that remains of tho oivclo of arms about the* head. • Dried squids will keep in good condition for many years; and when they are boiled, mixed with herbs, and pleasantly seasoned they make a capital soup or pudding, the taste of wliich will nilldly suggest a lobster broth. The miserable Indians of Utah and tho Colorado desert, and tho bushineu of Africa, who life in a hot, dry, open region, gather grasshoppers, crickets, and some sorts of booties, and make a meal of thoir dried bodies, wliich they orush and mix into a sort ol paste with berries or seeds, or else they devour tho insects raw.
