The flesh of mares is always eaten by toe Tartars, ailso by the South America us Indians, and 1 to a certain extent by their sucessors, the Gauchos. The latter-have a theory that horse flesh not only preserves but whitens tlio tooth. It is hard to imagine IIOAV iit can over be preferred to beef, for, bsldes its disagreeable color,, it has a peculiarly astringent taste. In the matter of Avhat Mrs. Buckland terms, "unappreciated trifles," our tasti* is more capricious. We eat eels, but cannot be induced to touch snakes; shrimps, but not spiders.

On the subjot of strange foods tho author calls attention to tho curious results Avhich Is said to bo produced by the eating in South America of adried fish called "shockp." Tho face of the consumer sAvells as affected by the mumps. This, it is believed, is duo to the fish having been hung up to dry in tho moonlight. Men of science are sloAV to believe in lunar influence, but in this case it appeal's to be a well knoAvn fact, which seems deserving of investigation.
