The injurious habits of a few birds
have already been mentioned. In tho
case of the shrikes, the destruction
of small birds is likely to be detri
mentral, as &mall birds aro generally
valuable aids to the cultivator; but
the injury done in tliLs indirect way
is more thaii counterbalanced by tho
destruction of mice and iusects,
which form the great bulk of the
shrike's food. Sometimes tho damage
is more direct. A few birds feod in
winter and spring on buds of trees,

of this habit will be briefly consider

has reported to tho War Office a dis
aster to the British near Bethel,
Eastorn Transvaal, in which two
guns were lost, several oflicors killed
or wounded and fifty-four men were
killed and 160 wounded.
Following is tho text of Lord
Kitchener's dispatch, dated Proto
ria, November 1st:
'I have just heard of a sovcro at
tack made on the rear guard of Colo
nol Benson's column when about

Colonel Benson was wounded,but not
seriously. A relieving column will
reach him in the morning."

the fruit, and those who raiso fine
strawberries for family use some
times secure only a fow boxes, while
the rob.ins take most of the crop. On
the othor hand, thousands of fiuit
raisers in various parts of tho coun-
ry aro never troubled by robins, al
though these birds may be just as
abundant in their vicinity a's else
where. The probable explanation of
this is not far to seek. An examina
tion of tho stomachs of 500 robins,
collected in various parts of the
country, shows that tho cultivated
fruit forms but a moderate percent
age of their diet; and that practi
cally all of this is eaten in Juno and
July; whilo wild fruits, of .which 42
varieties have been identified, con
stitute more than 43 per cent of the
year's food. Investigation shows that
complaints have come chiefly from
two principal sources, the suburbs
of large towns in tho East and the
prairie region of tho West. Such
localities lack those wild fruits which
robins evidently prefer. Near cities
such fruits have been destroyed, and
in tho prairie region they rarely grow.
As soon as tho prairies wero sotthid
many small fruits wero planted, thus
affording a supply of food to the birds,
whilo the largo fruit trees furnished
sites for their nests. As none or but
fow of tho wild fruits wore accessible,
it follows naturally that the birds
resorted to tho available supply,
that is, to tho cultivated varieties.
Much tho same condition has been
created about large cities by tho sub
stitution of cultivated for wild fruit.
