THE MOCKING BUtD
GRADUAL EXTERMINATION OF THE

derful 1omen of Soiiff
ARrcntUcnl 1ms been written during
the last threw yours concerning tho ftrnd
tml eMerminnllbn Of thd goilths sploiiilld
notiRster tlio mocking bird or to bo inoro
definite tlio Mlmus Polyfilottus Tlio
Tolegrnph llrst called attention to tlio sub
ject iind I see no reason to doubt that tho
theory then advanced to account for tho
growing scarcity of the birds was and Is a
true one The rtason given was tho un
checked slaughter of tho birds by negro
sportsmen anil tho destruction or cap
ture of their yoitn from Wantonness or a
tleslro for gain Tho theory lias boon com
bated It Is stated by somo that tho Kng
ltsh sparrow Is driving out tho slngors
Hy others that tho destruction of tho for
ests has something to do with tho evil It
Is even suggested thjil hurricanes mny bo
tho real cause Ijfifrobf those theories
will stand tho test Tho Kfigllsh sparrow
ran not In fact no bird can drive out tho
mockers who bolong to a gnmo and bel
ligerent family Tho common mocking
bird will attack dogs cats hawks crows
and buzzards when they invade his range
and I havo never known ono of them to
give up tho contest Ho Is not a forest
bird but of tho fields Ho prefers an open
situation nnd tho haunts of men Tho
6rcMftl hcdKor n solitary -haw bttsh
wliero ho litis plenty of sunlight nnd a
brcudth of view suits him best Andit is
in tho Holds nnd orchards that ho finds
food Of nil nests his is probably tho
most carefully bnllt nnd little trouble is
tnkon to conceal it Ho seems to feel that
Ills song is the prlco of security and this
mlstnko is fast playing hnvoo with htm
DESTyJCTION HY NEailO HUNTKIIS
TJp to emancipation times or rather tho
closo of the war mocking birds wcro
plentiful every whero in Georgia Dur
ing tho years that followed freedom armed
a raco to whom guns Tind been forbidden
Tho negro became an onthuslnstlc hunter
bttho1wn3junsklllccVnnd could not grot-
Hy his cazo or destroying only upon
birds that wcro nearest athnnd Mock
ing birds cardinals Jo reels catbirds and
thrushes wont down as easy conquests be
fore a class that had novcr boon taught
bettor and hud nclthorsontlmont nor con
science Tho negro hunter of to day with
possibly a few ocoptlons are not wing
shots and thoy fill their bags with birds
that can bo killed in tho trees It goes
without saying that these nro tho birds
that should bo spared to tho fields and to
society My observation hns been that
fow vory fow negroes will pass gun In
hand anything thnt has foathors and Is
largo enough to cook nnd this is borno
out by tho fact that tho bluojny the wood
pecker and tho catbird nro disappearing
from tho Holds and woods almost as fast
as tho mocking bird proper
Tho destruction of tho mocking bird has
beon moro rapid because his nest has been
systematlcallyrobbcd by parties of both
colors for prlvnto gain or grati
fication -A year or two since
wo noted ono shlpmont of theso birds
from Savnnnnh which contalnod GOOorTOO
Upon tho streets of this nnd all other cities
thoy nro openly sold every summer
When howover wo look nt him from n
sentimental point tho wondqr that any ono
can harm a member ot the mocking bird
family increases Nd song bird In tho
world can equal tho sweetness ot his notes
or sustain a song so long No bird known
to naturalists can produco tho notes of
others nnd ot fowls or evon animals with
such precision and in such combination
The llttlo gray Bingor that Wilances him
self upon trectops or dances nlong the
ridges of our houses seems to havo all tho
bird notes of tho land nt his tonguos end
nnd to delight In weaving thorn into new
forms of beauty That he has never been
tho poets themoto tho extent that tho
lark tho nightingale or oven tho robin
has I nttributo to his name It is not fitted
for verse nor is it nt nil poetical Had he
borno tho uamo of Orpheus as does his
cousin of tho Greater antllles ho would
havo filled the song lore of tho south Paul

Mocking birds can bo taught almost
nnyunng in 1110 way ol tunes Macon
used to bqast ot a bird that whistled
Dixie and years ago a Frenchman
traveled about thq country playing Airs
upon tho piano which his bird would fol
low accurately At tho Pulaski house In
Savaunnh n negro used to keep n bird
that would whistle n good alto1 to tunes
his master whistled -
Ono of tho most popular errors Icon
cernlng tho mockjng bird is tho bollof that
ho has no song of his own thnt ho adopts
nnd blends onl thu notes of other birds
into n song Tlils Is pure Aonsonse Tho
young mqcklng birds roared in tho gar
rets of great citleond boyond tho reach
ot tho songs of others sing as do tho na
tives in their freedom fhougi not as
strongly since thoy lack tho inspiration
of mates tho mellpw sunlight nnd lib

songs biitenthcly original No man over
