In Weight and Spread of Wing
They Surpass All Other Birds.
MYSTERY IN THEIR FLIGHTS.
With Fixed Outspread Winga Theae
Wonderful Birds Will Sweep Upward
? nd Onward Through tha Air With?
out tha Movement of a Feather.
lt ls not commonly known that we
have a condor lu tbe United states.
yet there ls one on the I'sci tlc coast
that lu weight und spread of Wing sur?
passes ull other birds. From tip to
tip of winn lt measures more than ten
feet, i-ouslderably more thou the con?
dor of the Auden nnd about a yard
more than the tautest eagle or swan.
This condor Ir blink, tinged wltb
browu. except under the wings, where
there ls a lons, narrow strip of almost
pure white running the whole length
of the wine mid widening near tbe
body It has no ruff round tbe neck,
but a fringe of long, narrow black
feathers on the back of the ueck gives
lt a savage appearance. lt nests
among thc rocks In lofty cliffs, laying
several white eggs much larger than
those of the turkey or goose. From
1875 to IM condors were so abun?
dant In southern California that I used
to see them almost every day. but now
they are found only In the wilder moun?
tains Their eggs bring $100 each In
tbe larger museums of the country.
If nn animal ls sick or disabled the
condor rarely hesitates to attack lt.
snd Its fnte ls soon sa-uled If it ls not
strong enough to defend Itself or es?
cape Its enemy.
I.Ike the condor of the Andes, that
of California will so gorge Itself wltb
food nt times that lt can be lassoed
In the ipilck dash of a good horse. A
friend of mine at San Jacinto had one
that had baree ranght In that way
But. although be had thousands of
sheep and cuttle, he had to give the
bird nwny because he could not afford
to feed lt ll would eat a whole sheep
st a meal and then look hungry snd
sad. ns If lt were badly treated.
Once clear of the ground, with wings
outspread, the condor has no trouble
In boa ring away hate the clouds a din?
ner that will last n week or two.
Standing on the ground nt n distance
this great bird looks much like a big
black Newfoundland dog sitting up for
a cracker, but In tho air lt surpasses in
grace and variety of nctlon every other
wanderer of the skies The whooping
crane, that floats like a s|hs-U of down
In the remotest blue: Hie frigate bird,
whoso wing seems never nindi- to fold,
even thc albatross, are all clumsy and
monotonous compared with the condor
It travels In fl series of winding lines,
in which symmetry mid grace alway*
govern the boldest sweeps or the high
est bursts of speed.
Dozens of times I have laid among
the rocks and had the condor como so
near that 1 could plainly see the spar?
kle of the brown eye In the vivid rei)
of the hare head, nnd willi the strong
glass that I always carried la hunting
deer I have brought the bird mud1
nearer. Vet never could I detect the
slightest motion of wing or feathers
beyond n lazy lap or two at intervals
of several minute.-, or n simple lnbend
lng of the tips of the wings, as If feel
lng the breeze to be sure lt was tbere
And the hird often floats an hour or
more without even this slight motion.
lt is quite wondai mi when the con
dor sets its wings and slides sidewise
across a strong brees* without a:iy de
scent, yet without falling backward
and still more so to see the great bird
return with fl swing ot tia If n mile el?
more, arriving hundreds of feet above
the point of spirting and perhaps hun
dreds of yards ahead of lt
When I have been well hidden among
the rooks I have seen n eoudor within
a few yards hanging on the air for
many seconds at ii time?not like the
hawk lui lancing Itself to fall upon sonic
bird below, but seeming to sleep there
as peacefully nnd tpiletly as a summer
cloud. Then suddenly the bird bas
turned half over mid cleft the air with
a sharp hiss of wing feathers, for
which there was not the slightest mo?
tion of a wing to account. And all this
time the condor has been rising instead
of falling, and I have vnlnly watched
the frin.red tips of the great wings for
the slightest sign of motion.? T. S. Van
Dyke in Youth's Comptinion.

THAT LITTLE PONGEE GOWN
An Appeal for Help for the Cause of
Look ye Christians! Look at the
hundreds of little brown hands
stretched out! See the wealth of
misery and despair written upon
these little brown faces! Gaze deep
into these dark almond eyes and
read the pleading, heart-breaking
appeal foi- aid' Behold these little
undeveloped bodies, beot with care
and poverty and shame! Do not
tura away. Stop and investigate
ibe wretched life of these little out?
cast girls in Japan. Cinnot we,
here in our beautiful America, in
ourSute, in our city, in our own
home, do something toward alleviat?
ing the misery of their condition?
Cannot we do our part, if only a
mite, toward assisting that most
oonsecruted, courageous, self-sacri?
ficing, noble woman. Miss Annie
Dowd, our missionary in Japan, to
realizj lier "Heart's Desire" in
building a home for these girls? A
borne where they can be protected
and taught to live clean, pure lives.
A home where they can learn of the
New Life and be fitted to go out and
work for Him who gave Himself
that we might live
Miss Dowd does not ask for an
elaborate building, but a homo of
substantial structure of purely Jap
anese style. She herself has taken
into her own home and cared and
Iprovided foranumber of the-egirls.
Mr. David Patrick MacMillan has
written the story of a little pongee
dress owned by Miss Dowd aoi the
wonders it accomplished in such a
captivating manner that you will
have missed a great deal if you fail
to read it.
Gentlemen, do not pay so much
for that new overcoat or handsome
automobile you are contemplating
Ladies, take a lesson from the lit?
tle missionary and expend less upon
beaver hats, velvet coats and silken
gowns and send your money to the
missionaries and see if you do not
reap a great harvest of joy.
Remember "That Little Pongee
Gown." The proceeds of the sale of
this hook goes toward building this
borne. $3,500 has been secured;
here you will learn by reading the
book, and we are earnestly endeav?
oring to secure the remaining
uount needed in as short a period
ul time as possible.
Copies may be secured by send?
