EFFORT8 TO GET RID
OF ENQLISH SPARROW
The agricultural department has
recently printed a map showing the
extent ol country now occupied by
the English sparrow. It -'has been
multiplying with .marvelous rapidity
and is now found in most parts of
the country. . Only three states, Mon
tana. Nevada and Wyoming, and these
territories, Alaska, Arizona and New
Mexico, are free from the-sparrow.
It is found in California, . both north
and south of San Francisco, in the
valleys of the Sacramento and San
Jcaquln rivers, and along the coast.
It is scattered among the settlements
on the Columbia river and Fuget
sound. It has spread all over the
eastern half of the country from
North Dakota to the Mississippi delta
It has, however, avoided the sandy
region of Florida and is not found to
any extent in our moat densely wood
ed areas. As might be expected, it
has given our vast semi-atid colony a
wide berth, though a large colony has
settled in the fertile agricultural
region around Salt Lake City.
It is only 51 years since the En
glish sparrow was first introduced
into this country by a gentleman of
Brooklyn, who sought a remedy fr
the worms that-were destroying the
trees of that town
The sparrow has
a keen appetite for worms. In the
course of time injury done the tree
by worms was largely abated through
this little bird, bo it became quite a
fad to import sparrows from K irope
and then turn them loose in our
towns. A thousand birds were sent
to Philadelphia in a single lot. Many
birds were distributed far and wide
from the colonies already started.
One hundred pairs were brought to
Monmouth in 1875 by Nathan Carr,
Jr., to help exterminate the insects in
the Maple city. The birds cost f 100,
of which $76 was raised by private
subscription and 25 donated oy the
Undoubtedly the sparrow has de
stroyed a great many tons of worms.
But the remedy has proved wore
than the disease. Perhaps the worms
have been held in check Mo some ex
tent, but we have a great many more
sparrows than we have use for. They
destroy fruit and grain, disfigure
building in cities and towns, drive
away other birds and in fact are
nuisances. I be dear little sparrow has
come to be regarded as the worst of
the feathered pests. i.uorU to e x
terminate it are now making in the
country, but it is too late. The spar
row has become naturalized and he is
here to stay. Illinois, Michigan, Ohio
and Utah in the past few years have
paid out many thousands of dollars
in the bounties tvfforedfor its destruc
tion, but no one has yet observed any
diminution in the number of birds.
The English sparrow Is a very suc
cessful emigrant. It has been carried
to the remote islands of tho seas and
is tlcurishing in the Pacific ocean, in
cluding the Hawaiian is'ands. It has
gained a foothold in Argentine and la
hopping all over Bermuda, the Baha
mas and Cuba. It was sent to Ber
muda from New York in 1874 and a
tine was imposed upon any one who
destroyed it. Ten years later boun
ties were paid for its destruction and
in three years nearly $3 000 were ex
pended in this way without causing
any appreciable decrease, though the
inlands have an aiea of less than
20 fcquaro miles. All the colonies of
Australia have "sparrow destruction
laws," bat the bird deolines to leave
the friends who welcomed it as a
blesslDg and would now be happy to
speed its departure
A LOVELY MODEL.
Mrs. II mnar.o Has Sat Some Thousands of
Times For Photos.
Perhaps thera is not a woman in tbis
country or in the world, whether ao
trpps, professional beaoty, qneeu or
princess, who baa been photographed as
many times and in as many different
poses as lias Mrs. Donienico Bonnano.
In Mrs. Uouuaiio'8 case it was nothing
bnt a tribute, first, last and all the
timn, for in each instance she was pho
tographed only because fche was beauti
ful. Moreover, the photographer was a
recognized anthority on female beauty,
a past grand master of the art of pho
tography, a magician of lennen.
He was Napoleon Sarony, Mrs. Bon
nano'n first husband.
When Sarony established his photo
graph gallery in New York, be conceiv
ed the idea of advertising his baldness
by placing iu prominent locations sam
ples of his work. There were profes
sional beantied and handsome actresses
in those days, jnst as there are in these
days, bnt Parony never found a more
inspiring subject than bis own wife,
and he nsM to delight to make pictures
of her in all sorts of artistio attitudes
and in all sorts of garb to which her
remarkable figure and charming features
best lent themselves. So it came abont
that hundreds if not thousands of pho
tographs were taken of Mrs. Bonnano
lief ore her first husband died. These
photographs extend over a period of
idauy years, showing Mrs. Bonnano in
the ftaxh of yonth and up to the maturi
ty of her ptxsonal charms. They make
a remarkable collection that is highly
prized by members of her family. Not

his friend, not by entering his
house at night by llash of dark

HIGH COLLAR DOOMED,
A DEALER'S OPINION.
There has been considerable talk in
regard to discarding the tall turn
down collar, which has been so much
worn, after tbis fill.. A local dealer
when asked about the question said:
The tall turn down or band collars
of two thicknesses which are being
worn so extensively now are a men
ace to both the manufacturer and the
retail dealer. They are more expen
sive to make than the old time straight
collars, but sell for the same.
Tho craze for them has evi
dently reached its height tbis sum
mer, although many predict that they
will bo as good sellers next year as
the present season. The very low
bands will bo largely in voguo next
season, as they' were this with the
ultra fashionables. The neckwear
business has suffered from this style
of collar, as only narrow strings tied
four-in-hand and in small bows can
be worn. The result is that dealers
were left with a big stock of the larger
shaped ties on their hands, which hate
been a diug on the market. The ori
gin of tho narrow four-in-hand is in
teresting. Early In tho season a fash
ionable New York haberdasher, dis
played in his window a shirt with
this new style collar on which a nar
row string pcarf was tied. In 21
hours every manufacturing neckwear
house in the city had samples ready
and were in shape to meet the trade
The narrow four-in-hand took like
wild fire and spread all over the
country. It is now announced that
the collars of former styles will be
pushed this full with which any sort
of a scarf, large or small, can le

VON MAUR AND PHILLIPS

"The nomination of T. J. Phillip i.

to a Davenport Leader , "reporter.
"brings, to mind an incident that I
will always remember.
"I was younger than I am now. It
was tys way. unea upon a time I
lived in Oitumwa. I roomed with a
young man there and the place wh ere
we boarded was directly across tee
street from where Mr. Phillips was
living. It must have been about 4
o'clock one mornlne when we were
both awakened by awful screams right
nnder our window. We thought at
first that the cries were of a child. I
sprang up and grabbed a revolver we
had in the room.
"At about that time the cries were
repeated and we recognized them as
the yawls of a neighborhood cat. I
was so provoked that I decided to
take a shot at the oat just for fun.
Not thinking of the house on the
other side of the street, or of any
thing but the cat, for that matter, I
"What was my consternation when
I heard the crash of the bullet
through the shutters across the street
and the sound of breaking glass. It
had gone plunk through one of the
windows of Mr. Phillips' residence.

him the next morning, but he only
laughed and pissed it off as a joke."

If you should want an island that is,
an uninhabited Island for the purpose
of occupying it aloue, Robinson Crusoe
like, or to use it for romantic fiction or
for nny other purpose, to the exclusion
of all others in the world, you need have
no trouble in rinding one if you see fit
to make n journey to the Indian ocean.
In the waters between Madagascar and
India you can find more than 15,000 of
them, where there is not a human be
iug and where you can, if you will, le
monarch of all you survey.
An English traveler has recently been
among the small islands that dot the
western end of the Indian ocean to
make nn inventory of them and re
ports that he counted lfi.HK and found
only about CiOO of them inhabited.
Now, there Is n good chance for any
one who may want an Island.
These particular islands are not large,
as islands go, but very many of them
aro sufficient for the purpose of a Hob-
Inson Crusoe or any other novel hero
or for even a small colouy or snip-
wrecked mariners or other persons who
might be cast on one of them or seek
for the purpose of making a home pret
ty much out of the busy world.
Some of them are only an acre or
two, well elevated above the tide, while
others are a quarter of a mile in diam
eter and running from that up to a mile
or two in length and n quarter or less
of the length In breadth. Many of
them are granitic structures that rise
Pteeply from '20 to 100 feet, well cover
ed with rich soil, through which 6inall
fresh water streams hurry to the sea,
which they reach after flowing over
beaches of glistening calcareous sand
that are begirt by coral reefs, which
form walls about the islands.
