tho coming of tho sandpiper, tho
snipes and tho plovers. He Is Fred
erick Hlgglns of Orleans, well known
on the Capo as a gunner who does his
shooting, decoy Betting, boating, and,
In fact, everything In his day's doings
with one hand. Ho has but ono arm,
and that 1b his loft.
Some ten ycarB ago he lost his
right arm at the Bhoulder. The acci
dental dlBchargo of his gun so shat
tered tho bones that amputation was
uocweary, but as great an was the loss
it In no wise dulled the liking he had
for shooting. When ho recovered from
his severo Injury ho began practice nt
one-hand shooting. It was a bit vex
ing, If not In a measure discouraging
nt first, but the old lovo for hunting
birds in the uplands and winged garao
along shore and in the wator gave him
courage to proceed and conquer tho
obBtncloB In his way. And ho succeed

shooting box on ono of tho good wild

tamed to Btay near human habitation.
Nearly all varieties of tho duck fam
ily fly past his cabin. The black duck,
sometimes called tho dusky duck, and
ono of tho wildest of the wild fowl
family, frequently appoara In Beason.
But tho black duck is a suspicious, all-tue-tlme-alort
bird, and not even first
rate live decoys can bo depended upon
to always coax ono or a flock of them
within effective shotgun range. Occa-
tonally, though, one or more ot the
black duck family swims within range
of some carefully scouting gunner, and
a kill Is made.
Other ducks that now and then drop
down to look at Mr. Hlgglns' decoys
are the canvas back, mallard and the
spoonbill, or shoveler duck, which pos
sess tender, dellciousiy-flavored meat;
the teals, blue-winged and green
winged, once in a while appear along

and well, but ho Is also skilled In tie

In addition to hunting shore birds
and wator fowl Mr. Hlgglns derives a
considerable income from the sale of
tho quahaug, the delicious round, hard
clam of tho Atlantic coast. Somo days
his diggings return him $5, and occa
sionally when good clamming condi
tions prevail ho makes more.
Each yoar with tho coming of tho
open season on shore birds and water
fowl Mr. Hlgglns hits the trail for his
shooting box. He places hla live de
coys and his make-believe ducks and
awaits the Incoming of southing birds.
When tho shooting is good he averages
from eight to a dozen shore birds a
day. Those find ready sale, and thero
b always a market for ducks.

IT IS CRIMINAL TO NEGLECT
THE SKIN AND HAIR
Think of the suffering entailed by
neglected skin troubles mental be
cause of disfiguration, physical be
cause of pain. Think of tho pleasure
ot a clear skin, soft, white hands, and
good hair. These blessings, so essen
tial to happiness and even success in
life, aro often only a matter of a little
thoughtful care In the selection of
effectivo remedial agents. Cutlcura

poor complexions, red, rough hands,
