AiOE FIELDS OF SPECULATION AND
Hirds and Beasts That Are Now Extinct.
Creatures That Have Served Their Pur
pose Should Not Be Mourned Because
They Are No More.
Is It necessary to go into paroxysms of
rief because certain animals are extinct,
or, as Mr. Frederic A. Luca, of the United
States National museum, expresses it, are
"threatened with extermination?" There
are more men and fewer wild animals.
Mankind does not interfere so much with
the survival of the fittest as it hastens the
destruction of the entire fauna. Formerly,
as Mr. Lucas properly explains it, "through
natural causes race after race of ani
mals has disappeared from the globe.
The extermination of species by nature ia
ordinarily slow, and the place of one is
taken by another, while the destruction
wrought by man is rapid, and the gaps he
rreates remain unfilled. "
There was the great auk, an nneommonly
fat aud awkward bird, that positively paid
to hungry sailors, "Come, catch me, roast
and eat me." Think of the godsend an
Alca impensis must have been, not alone
to primitive man, but to the early settlers
of Maine or Labrador. When Cartier's
hardy mariners landed off Funk island iu
1534 they made glorious feastini;s on the
great auk. Here were poor fellows, dyinij
of scurvy, getting back vital forces with
every mouthful of great auk they f wal
lowed. Are they to be begrudged liecause
they "filled two boats full of birds as if
they had been stones, so that, besides
them which we did eat fref-li, every shi;
did powder and salt five or tix barrels f
Those Basque and other fishermen who
crossed the stormy seas for cod depended
on the luscious auk for their rations. The
number of the birds must have been count
less, because the auk was not a pro! i lie
breeder, laying only one egit at a time.
Poor, stupid old bird, shaped by nature to
become fat and heavy, to find its food so
readily that it wanted no wings, and so
It might have lasted longer as a bird if
it had not I wen for its feathers. Just as
soon as it was a question of secii'-ing the
Gare fowl's feathers, then it was indeed
Itontid to disappear. Men went to tlieir
best breeding ground, which was Funk is
land, and fdew auks by the millions. All
that was done was to strip the birds
of their skins, and tlieir bodies were left
to decay. i?till the bird bung on as a
rara avis up to 1S10, and then it was no
longer an inhabitant of the world any
more th.in the dodo. Could any of Car
tier's sailors have thought t hat a skeleton
of a great auk, when offered fr sal",
would create the wildest excitement ami
be wortii $Ko, or a skin fetch ftViO, or a
fair eggshell fl,"00?
When Co!u:i;li'!s sought Copango and
came across the West Indies bis sailors
found along the shores the Peal known t'
day as the Monachns tropiralis. A distin
guished characteristic of this seal was that
it placed little or no deiK-ndenreon it,s hiud
flippers. Nature had overlooked or slighted
their development. It was a seal wit hout
proper co-ordination of movement. When
it wanted to go forward o:i the land it had
to arch its back something like a caterpil
lar, and then after a prodigious effort its
progress was less than a foot. Of course
with the advent of man this West Indian
The stmrge thing about this seal, so far

Little or nothing is known today about
tbe rytina, or arctic sea cow the Kytiua
gigas It was related to the manatee, or
dugong. only it lived far north. It was a
big creature, certainly twenty-live or thir
ty feet long, with a girth of from fifteen to
twenty feet, and probably an adult would
weigh four tons. It had a ridiculously
small head and was toothless. Its skiu
was supposably tough, not thick, but hard
enough to resist the edge of an ax. It was
gregarious and lived at the mouths of riv
ers, pasturing ou seaweed. When Behring
(1741) was in Kamchatka he saved his
crew from scurvy by taking sea cows. It
was a creatare so easy to kill that exter
mination soon took place.
On Copper island, where this sea cow
was once plentiful, they had become rare
in 1763. The last one was probably killed
on Behring island in the last quarter of
the Eighteenth century. Some years ago,
at tbe instigation of the United States Na
tional museum. Dr. Stejneger visited Behr
ing island in search of sea cow skeletons
and was fortunate enough to find skulls,
ribs and other bones, and so today No.
21,966 of the catalogue of the National
museum stands for the skeleton of the sea
So much notoriety has been given to the
dodo that it is scarcely necessary to give
more than a passing notice to Didus inep
tns. We generally accept Pisa's picture
cf the dodo, bat the configuration given it
by Savary in the Seventeenth century
comes nearer to what ornithologists be
lieve to have been the true shape. The
probability is that after all the dodo was
not a good bird to eat. In 1C93, though it
had been fairly abundant in Madagascar,
Mauritius, Bourbon and Kodriguez, it was
ext inct. The dodo owes its reputatiop to
the wonderful work done by Owen, who
reconstructed a bird with a few bona.
