A LIFE RISK FOE EGGS
SOME UNAPPY HOURS PASSED IN
Attach by the Big Creatures on a Pre
cipitous Cliff In a Fool and Filthy Neat.
AbaodonM by Gaides and Left for
Hoars Alone A Terrible Half Day.
"I have my little 'fad' as well as other
people." said a prosperous, fat and jolly
commission merchant the other day. "but
I dare feay you would guess a long time
without Litting on it, so I will confess it
without putting you to the trouble. It is
my collection of birds' eptrs. The making
of that collection gave rae many hours of
rare -port when I was an adventurous
youn fellow and had none of this load of
fat to carry atout, and the chief use of it
now is to recall pleasant memories of those
days that wiil never come air.-tin. When
you're old you"ll know how that is your
self," and the old gentleman took a strong
pull at his ciar and let the smoke out in
a long and noisy sii;h.
"I was a traveler in those days for a big
exjort house which wasT,u--iiii:-; into Mex
ico ai;d ?.juth America for trade, and to it
came about that most of my eggs are those
of birds of those countries. Tell you
aV-O'it some of them? Don't mind if I do.
We!!, for waat of knowing which one to
pick on, I'll tell you how I came to cap
ture the biggest though n- the rarest one
in the collection. It is a vu't' "s egg. I
was in Mexico when I go? and I
thought once or twice w bile 1 v. is secur
ing it that I would nevtr get out of
"Vulture.-; are shy of mankind, and their
tests are exceedingly hard to find, and so
wheu I met a hunter who knew where one
was I hired him, with a couple of assist
ants, to show me it and help me get the
eggs. We arrived at the soot about noon,
and I almost wished I had not come. The
guide pointed out to me a precipitous and
beetling cliff, which looked to me to be
about 500 feet high, overhanging a deep
lake. About 100 feet from the top of the
cliff there was a rent or hole, which from
where we stood looked as if it had about
as much room inside it as an empty flour
barrel. In there, the guide said, the vul
tures had their nest, and the oaly way to
reach it was to let me down from the top
at the end of a long rope.
It was a perilous descent, but making
a sort of chair at the end of a stout raw
hide rope I swung myself over the cliff
and two men lowered me slowly while
the third lay on his face and peered over
into the abyss watching me. When I
got about twenty feet below the hole in
the cliff I signaled them to stop. The hole
Mound was as big around at the entrance
as a barn door; but the top of the cliff pro
jected so that I hung fully twenty feet
away from the face of the rock. Nothing
daunted, I legan to swing myself, slowly
at first, and with gradually increasing
force, till my body at last swung in against
the face of the cliff and finally into the
hole itself. Catching a projecting corner
of rock, I pained my feet, and was nearly
knocked off them again by the horrible
stench which greeted me.
"The floor of the hole was strewed with
decayed flesh and fish and feathers and
bones, and in the middle of it all lay the
nest of long grass ami as dirty as any pig
sty and in it two young vultures and one
un hatched egg. The egg was a grateful
sight, but the youngsters were an unpleas
ant surprise, for they at once threw them
selves on their backs and began to scream
like mad. I secured the egg, but not with
out getting a couple of bad scratches from
the sharp claws of the young birds, which
were aliout as big as hens. I was wrap
ping the ecrg in my coat and the young
birds were filling the air with their clamor
when suddenly there was a whir of wings,
the entrance was darkened, and I got a
blow on the head that knock ed me down
in the unspeakable filth and filled my eyes
"The old birds were upon me. I recog
nized that fact in an instant, and having
nothing to defend myself with, I expected
to be knocked down the cliff or at least
have my eyes pecked out. 1 was always
pretty ready of resource, and in this bad
plight the thought flashed throngh my
mind that these unusually timid birds
were only fierce because they thought I
wanted to harm their young. Quickly un
rolling the egg from my coat, I threw the
garment over the squalling brats, and
their sharp claws striking into the cloth
at once tangled them inextricably in it.
Guarding my eyes from the old birds with
one arm, I dragged the coat with the two
young ones attached to it to the mouth of
the hole, only a step or two, and hurled
them far out and down into the lake.
"As 1 expected, the old vultures followed
their young at once and their efforts to lift
them out of the water were so ludicrous
that I laughed aloud. My laugh was
quickly shut off, however, for in the next
moment, as I thrust the egg into my
bosom and gave the rope a tug as a signal
to my men to pull me up, the rawhide
came down from the top of the cliff with a
run. Great Scott! How was I to get back
What had those stupid fools at the top
done? I did not know that they had
watched me disappear into the hole, had
seen the old vultures follow me, and had
then seen what they thought must be me,
as they distinctly recognized my coat,
come flying out again and fall into the
lake, pursued by the two vultures, whom
they could see pecking at me in the
"They let go the rope and hurried away
around and down to the lake's edge to res
cue my mangled lody from being entirely
eaten up by the birds. After some tedious
hours of climbing they found out their
mistake' and proceeded to climb back
again. Ity this time it was growing dark,
and as I sat hour after hour in that foul
hole, between heaven and earth, not know
ing what had happened, you can imagine
my feelings. Just as I was in absolute
despair, I saw a stone tied to a thin cord
swing down in front of me. I clutched at
It with ecstasy and nearly fell over tbe
adge in my eagerness. Tying the end of
my rope to the cord, I gave a pull and
away it went up the cliff again. After
due time I gave a pull on the rope, and
finding it taut, I swung myself out of that
infernal hole and was drawn up to the top
rejoicing, with my precious egg still in my
bosom." New York Tribune.
Tbe Monkey' Reasoning Powers.
The monkey's intelligence has never
been able to arrive at a point which en
ables that animal to achieve the untying
of a knot. You may tie a monkey with a
cord fastened with the simplest form of
common knot, and unless the beast can
break the string or gnaw it in two he will
never get loose. To untie the knot re
quires observation and reasoning power,
and though a monkey may possess both
he has neither in a sufficient degree to en
able him to overcome the difficulty. Yan
