Will she be missed ? Go to the little

HERON HAS FAULTS
Will Ruthlessly Murder Young
Moorhens or Mallards.
Bird That Has Figured In Many His
torical Incidents of the Past and
of Whom Many Fables
Lewlstown, England. Much Is to
be said in favor of the heron, but he
has his faults, for he will ruthlessly
murder young moorhens or mallards,
which are not his legitimate prey. He
Will carry this practice to the extent
of actually swimming out Into deep
water to catch the young birds, and
these when caught aro swallowed
whole, in the same manner as he
would treat a flsh, for the heron, like
the hawk and owl, disgorges the indi
gestible portions of his food In the
form of pellets. My two herons joined
forces one day and between them
speared a young mallard to death,
aged about bIx weeks, and as it was
too large to swallow whole, and not
knowing apparently how to tear It to
pieces, they were quite unable to eat
it. When about three months old they
could swallow whole a one-pound flsh,
a truly remarkable performance when
one considers that a full-grown heron
only weighs about three pounds! Fish
of any size had to be swallowed head
first, and I found that anything, such
as a piece of meat, not wedge shaped,
caused them considerable trouble,
oven though of no great size; flsh also
were not easily swallowed unless pre
viously dipped In water to further
their sliding propensities. Herons are
said to be long-lived, "but owing to
their inborn tendencies towards mur
der I had to give mine away, so I had
no chance of testing the accuracy of
that statement, though I must say I
can well believe It, as they seem to be
extraordinarily hardy birds.
The heron was .a bird that figured
largely 'in past days, and many are the
fables quoted about him, one of the
strangest being perhaps the follow
ing: It was said that if you were to
rub the fat fom the thigh of a heron
on to your bait you Insured yourself a
good day's Ashing, for the scent from
Its legs was supposed to attract tho
flsh and thus enable him to catch his
prey more easily!
If you wish to tame a young heron
successfully It should be kept apart
from other birds, at any rate from
those smaller than himself, or he will
quickly become domineering and
quarrelsome; also In a place where he
can be often handled and see plenty
of people, otherwise ho will soon be
come shy and wild, for, unlike the
wild goose or raven, which when wild
are his equals in wildness and cun
ning but once tamed remain tame,
given the ordinary attention, herons
seem to show little or no affection for
their owner, but, however, quickly dis
tinguish him from a stranger.
In conclusion, I think the heron with
careful handling has great possibili
ties as a pet and when I say pet I do
not mean merely a pinioned bird, rest
less in captivity, but a bird which will
1 stay with you unplnioned and of his
' own free will. Why should not some
enterprising person attempt to train
tho heron to flsh for his master, like
I tho cormorants of the Chinese? la
any case, put him where you will, he
will always be one of the most orna-
mental of birds, be it in pond, garden
or lawn, and none Is easier to feed and
keep in health.
