The Pigeon Beem in Ferest County.
Xew Yeik Sun.
The great pigeon nesting of Ferest
county, Pennsylvania covers twenty squat e
miles. It is in Jcnks and Howe townships
near the seutcc of streams that empty into
the Allegheny river. It is sixteen miles south
ei Shcflielil, twenty miles west of Kane,
and a hundied miles south of Buffalo in a
direct line. The country is almost an un
broken wilderness. Net mere than ten
pcisens live within the boundaries of the
nesting. There are leads, but they ate as
tough as Tammany politicians and suipass
them in btuising power. They were made
by weed-choppers and baik-peelcrs. Roots
and stones mount skywaid, and ruts and
mud holes sink deep tow aids the bottom
less pit. The country is ueithcr rocky nor
mountainous. It is a hilly slope shaded
with beeches and hemlock, and a few
cherry, birch and maple trees. The beeches
bear a crop of nuts irregulatly and neer
two ycais in succession. The nut is ttiple
sided and tiiangular, and grows within a
prickly but r, much smaller than a chest
nut turr. Each but r contains two nuts.
The first fiest cracks the buns, and the
nut drops te the ground. Under a cover cever
eiing el snow they letain theii sweetness
These nuts attract the pigeons. The
condition of the ciep is studied by small
scouting patties in the fall, and in some
manner is told te the main army, who ad
vance with the appieach of spiing. This
year the advance guaid appealed in the
latter pait of Febiuaiy. They roosted at
the head of Minister and Perky cieeks,
tiibutaries of the Tionesta. A light snow
fell seen after their artival, but did net
prevent them fiem seeming an ample sup
ply of nuts. They swept dewnwaid in
gieups of thousands and whipped the snow
Hern the gieund with their wings. The
continuous Happing sounded like the l ear
of a cataract.
Mjiiads of birds pouted into the toest
daily for the next feitnight. They came
in sheets that stretched fiem hoiizento
hoi ion, and at times ebscuicd the light
of the sun. At neon ecr live squaie
miles of ttees weie leaded with loestiug
biids. The noise was deafening. At
times huge blanches bieken by the weight
of birds, crashed te the gieund, tlnewing
the vast camp into diic confusion. The
unfeitunate pigeons llutteied te and fie

The piofessieual pigeon hunter is keen
eyed, bronze-faced, hard-handed. Sixteen
yeais age he made from $500 te $2,000 net

who were at fiist hired te spieading nets,
but who have learned the calling and have
gene into business en their own account.

lie has been at the business ever feity
The few lei s begin netting the pigeons
when they aic feiminga loest. The nets
resemble common fish nets, and aie usual
ly sixteen feet wide aud thirty feet long.
They are spiead in an open place ever
which the birds Hy in seaieh of feed. The
net is set near a covert made of thick
hemlock boughs. It is stiting en rope tied
at cither end te gieen hickory saplings
bent paiallcl te the ground. The follow
ing diagram shows an unset net :

back in setting, the l epe being held in place
by the notches.

G The rope with which he spiings the net.
In setting the net the fowler gees te the
centre of the rope (3), and fei ces it back
te the notched pests (2), which bends the
hickory saplings (1) like bows. The
gieund has been leveled and spiinklcd
with buckwheat or ether grain. Seme
fowlers, however, depend entiiely upon
their steel pigeons.
The spring te the hickory saplings is se
great that it requires a stieng mau te set
the trap. A geed steel-pigeon is the
fowler's main reliance after his trap is set.
The steel resembles a battledoer. The
scat is made of interlaced twine tied te
curved ratan. The steel-pigeon's eyelids
are sewed together with thread, se that it
cannot see. A geed steel-pigeon can be
readily sold for twenty-five dDllars. The
bird is an honest bird, and, unless it
were blinded, it would give its mates the
Twe pijreens are used in trapping before
the mating season. One is called the
steel bird and the ether the flyer. When
the net is set and the air filled with birds
en the wing, the fowler tosses a decoy or
flyer from the opening of his covert. A
long string is tied te a leg of the flyer. It
mounts the sky until the string is tightened

and then flutters helplessly te the ground.
Its strange actions are seen by the fleck,
who lower their flight and sweep around it
in circles. Meantime the fowler assid
uously works his steel -pigeon and the
fleck, still further interested, settle in a
bunch near the trap. On discovering the
buckwheat they threw off all fear and feed
ravenously. At times they are grouped se
close that only their tails aie visible. The
trap springs in a twinkling.

A certain judge whose pompous and
officious ways tempted some of the lawyers
te acts which his honor construed te mean
contempt, fined them ten dollars each.
When they paid their fines, a cci tain diy
and steady-going old attorney walked up
te the bench and laid down a ten dollar
bill. "What is that for?" asked the
judge. " Fer contempt, your honor," was
the reply. "Why, I have net fined you
for contempt," answered the judge. " I
knew that," said the lawyer, "but I want
you te understand that Icherish a secret '
contempt for this court all the time, and I
am willing te pay for it."
The Washington Republic has informa
tion that " from thirty te forty thousand
Americans arc expected te go Europe, and
it is estimated that they will spend at least
$15,000,000 there. The traveling Ameri
can has plenty of money this year. The
high-priced state-rooms are in greater
demand than ever before, and no one wants
the cheaper ones. The French line has
abolished its second cabin. The influx of
visitors from Europe, and especially from
England, premises, also, te be unusually
large. The Englishman will run ever for
a month, you knew, just te see New Yerk,
Washington, Chicago, San Francisce and
New Orleans, you knew, and te kill a few
bloody buffalos, you knew."
New Yerk has an eccentric man named
Dexter, who makes a monthly distribution
of coin by throwing it into the street en
the principle, as he says, that "what a man
saves be loses ; what he gives away he
keeps forever." When the ceremony of
street distribution took place, which con
sists of clerks scattering new nickels and
dimes by the handful from various points
of elevation, the streets were blocked for
half a square by a howling mob of men
and boys struggling for a grab. Mr. Dex
ter appears te have no difficulty, thus far,
of getting away with his surplus money.
" It is dangerous te be rich," he observes.
There are yet a few, however, who are
willing te risk it.
Calm in Disaster.
In the spring of 1865, when Sheridan's
cavalry moved up the Shenandoah Valley
te have a last wrestle with Early's troop
ers, a halt was made by a portion of the
Union forces near Waynesboro'. Guards
were thrown out te protect property, and
among ethers the houseef a lone and aged
widow received such protection. Twe
dismounted cavalrymen were stationed at
the front deer and it was half an hour
or se before any stir in or around the
house gave token that it was inhabited.
Then the widow limped te the deer en a
crutch and called one of the guards te her
and asked :
" What are you doing here ?"
"We are guards te protect you and your
property," was the reply.
' ' Well, you needn't feel away any time
here. Early he come and he took our hay.
Then Sheridan come and he took our corn.
Then Mesby he stele our hams and 'taters.
Then Sheiidan took our flour and cider.
ThenEarJ inn off all our horses. All I
had left this morning was an old sick mule
and meal enough for one hoe cake. Then
he died two hours age, and I've just eaten
the last of the cake, and if you can find
anything weith guarding around here you
can have it and tote it off."
" But some of the soldiers may disturb
" I guess net,'" she said as she pointed
te the spot where a cannon ball had tern
through the house. "The day that hole
was shot through there I was rocking and
singing the "Pilgrim's Hepe," and I didn't
miss a rock nor diep a note. I don't
haidly think one brigade of horse sejers
can disturb me very much. You'll
