DO NOT KILL THEM.
BIRDS THAT ARE REAL AIDS TO FARM
ERS AND GARDENERS.
The Harm They Do Is Small Compared to
tbo Good They Accomplish Ewe the
Much Abused Hawk and Owl Bender
Talrable 6eirlce and Do Slight Harm.
"Km decent person vrho knows the
value "birds that sing, rhethcr their
notes L .arsh or sweet voiced, will
ever till pinging Lird, " said a natu
ralist. "ThiV'.satids of birds that aro of
inestimable vCllne to the farmer as well
as to tho town dweller who grows fruit
or keeps a garden ao slaughtered ruth
lessly every year.
"The farmer, tie gardener and the
fruit grower sbuld know more about
the birds that nest and siug and flit
about their premises, for then they
would defend af.d protect them and iu
timo have tbenubaek in something like
their old tiuiti numbers and variety.
How often nttfradays does one see tho
saucy, rich voited, nervous little wren?
A few years nko it was seen and heard
everywhere, bil it must bo a favored lo
cality that it visits now. Yet the littlo
wren tvos a n ost ravenous devourer of
the pestiferous md destructive cutworm
of tho garden! and tiid great work to
ward lesseuiny the damage done by tho
pest of the soil The bright littlo blue
bird clears th air and the ground of
thousands of c idiin 'm-ths and cauker
wonus during , sttsou.
"The crow b aekbinl lias vo peace at
tho hands of n an. yet a fix k of theui
iu a short time ivill clear a newly plant
ed field of all its hosts of destructive
larva that the low turns up. Tho great
American crow ilseif would do the same
thing if it was i't for the inevitable man
with a gun tlfut just wants tho crow
to try it once Neither the blackbird
nor the crow i ures as much for corn as
it does for gruljh, and if farmers would
scatter corn a! lut their fields instead of
putting up seal icrowsand the like those
misunderstood birds would never pull
up a hill of hi l planting. The chances
are anyhow th:: I if the agriculturist will
take tho t roc lie to examine a hill of
young corn th he charges the crow
with pulling n lie will liud that it was
cut off byagru)if some kind, and that
tho crow was imp!y mining f.ir the
grub, not the (irn.
"Tho robin, Et cannot lie denied, is a
soro trial to Jlio man who has fruit
trees and bn-li .-s. but if he could only
bring himself j to stop and think how
many thousands of ravaging insects that
are the especi; j) enemies of his trees and
bushes that tit robin destroys, both le
foro the fruit i.is ripened and for winks
after it is gonei he would not begrudge
the bird tho Jew quarts of cherries or
berri'S that itflevies on as partial satis
faction of t!i debt the grower owes
him. Tho snnit tuny be said of the other
thrushes for the robin is a thrush
tho cherry birds, orioles, blue jays and
many other birds of that class. These
birds never levy tribute on grain or
needs, but they do the farmer untold
"The climli:ig birdiKare the different
varieties of oodpeekers, and they are
constantly befriending growing tilings.
Wheuever a ivuodNX'ker is heard tap
ping on a tr., it is the deathknell of
tho larva) off some destructive insect
Yet it is not an uncommon thing to sec
tho very person for whom this bml is
industriously tet work following with his
gun tho bird's red head from tree to
tree until tho opportunity conies for
him to send 4 load of shot into the un
suspecting feathered philanthropist. It,
is a pet lieliaf among farmers that the
woodpecker Jiills the tree it works on,
and t bat lie i is working for that very
purpose. If is a fact that the commoa
littlo sapsneier does injure trees, but
tho woodpecker never does. Cjuito the
contrary. Tile white breasted nut hatch
aud tho little) gray creeper so general
ly confounded with the sapsueker live
exclusively c tree insects, yet the nut
hatch is in (bad reptire among many
farmers because they believe it kills
"Tho meadow lark is another bird
that has little peace on any one's land,
for thero is a mistaken notion abroad
that ho is a ( imo bird. He is gamo in
the qualify ol being alert and hard to
get a shot at, hut is no more entitled to
lo so classifie I than tho flicker or high
holder is. To meadow lark is a con
stant feeder oh underground larvie, aud
whatever ho is disturtxtl ho is simply
driven away iVom active work in rid
ding tho grcund of the worst kinds of
farm pests. Tlio blue jay may be said
to be indirectly an enemy to tho farmer
as well as a friend, for it has the bad
habit of destroying tho eggs of other
birds that do only good.
"If there is one bird that the farmer
loves to do all in Ids power to extermi
nate wore than he docs the crow, unless
it nuty bo tho hawk, that bird is the
owl. IIo can't be brought to the belief
that if it were not for tho owls and the
haw ks his fields would be overrun aud
burrowiwl by field mice to such aa ex
tent that his crops would be in jht
petunl danger; that owls, while out
mousing, feed on myriads of night fly
ing moths and. lieetles, thus preventing
tho layiug of millions upon millions of
tho eggs of thoso insects and that they
not only keep the field mice down, but
lessen tho number of domestic mice and
rats about barns and outhouses to an
extent that a small army of the most
vigilant cats could not surpass. As to
tho hawk, tho farmer remembers that
on some occasion one carried off a chick
on for him, and therefore the fact that
the big soaring bird daily kills many
field mice, grasshoppers, snakes, lizards,
beetles and othr vermin cannot be sot
up in its defense. The proportion cf
hawks or owls that kill chickens is
small compared with those who keep
down the deadly enemies of the farm
er's crops. " Exchange.

T. GREAT DRAWBACK.
Herr Dowe'i Wonderful Coat Not Only Bnl
let I'roof, bat Airtight.
After a series of thorough tests in
Germany aud London it has been dem
onstrated that Herr Dowe's coat cannot
be penetrated by bullets. The impene
trable quality of the stuff is seen in the
fact that the German rifle, which can
send a bullet at a distance of 100 yards
through a thick steel plate, strikes harm
lessly against the new coat of mail,
which is described as "a wire netting
incased iu a ccmentliko mass. " So in
spite of much misgiving and consider
able ridicule of his invention "tho lit
tle tailor of Mannheim" is on his way
to fame and fortAie.
There is, hovl ver, one great draw
back to the sucoss of this invention,
which puts its e by soldiers in the
field practicallyfout of the question.
The coat, whichj weighs not less than
six pounds, is aJ! impervious to air as
it is to bullets, Siud. in a great battle
more men woul$ tie stifled to death or
rendered unfit ir action by the wear
ing of fuch. ai apparatus over their
breasts than cold bo saved by it. On
going into action the first impulse of
tho soldier would be to strip off Dowe's
coat aud take ttho chance of a bullet
through the bnst in preference to suf
focation. Higijy desirable as it is that
tho terrible casualties of tho battlefield
should be lessened as much as possible,
tho practical utility of this novel armor
is CT-treuicly ilJtbtfuL This, too, seems
to be the conclusion of the German
l)u the ot her Jiand, it is conceded that
Ilcrr Dowe's invention will bo of great
value for the construction of light bar
racks, batteriti, army touts aud boats
and fix manyiother uses in defensive
warfare. If it :iiall possess all the qual
ities tiiat are olaimed for it, the mate
rial may laigijy supplant steel armor
for men-of-va4 But there are physical
laws which mke Herr Dowe's inven
tion of no valde to man or horse on the
lielsl of battlei It is not improbable,
however, thatf improvements may re
move or greatly lessen the difficulty of
using the stufj as defensive armor for
the individual- soldier. At any rate,
Herr Dowe his invented a material
which is impenetrable by bullets, and
this cannot be siiid of steel plates nor cf
any other knof n material of defensive
armor. riiikxlelphia Kocord.

The people fjf tho town of Sabinas
and surrounding country to the south of
here are cxcited.over the discovery of a
bandit V cave iu vkich a fabulous wealth
is believed to :i stored. Tho cave was
the rendezvous jf the famous bandit El
Colorado aud Lis followers, who terror
ized all of nortliern Mexico about a cen
tury ago. It is ituated iu the Iguana
mountains, near Sabinas, aud was first
discovered three mouths ago by au old
man named Cue-was, who iu some man
uer had just ccaiie into possession of a
chart giving the lo.-afiouof the cave.
Ho and three sans'and four other rela
tives started to make au exploration of
tho cave. In an inner compartment they
found a large pile of Filver coin of au
cient coinngu. They had filled one sack
with the money ; when they were all
overcome. with the fire damp with which
the cave was filled, and only four of tho
party succeeded in reaching the open air
Old man Cuevas was taken very sick
as the result of his terrible experience
and a few days ago died. On his death
bed ho coniided to the priest the secret
of the cave, and a party of explorers
was at oneo organized to visit aud se
cure the treasure. Il was headed by Sil
verio Garza, a prominent citizen of Sa
binas. They were all driven out of the
cave by tho noxious gases, and two of
the mciiiliers of (lie party havedied from
the effects of the peison which I hey in
haled. The news of' this second cxjiedi
t ion had become public, and the authori
ties have placed gmards at the cave to
guard the treasure u: :il further explora
tions can lie made. ' 'he general govern
ment has been notili d of tho situation.
