KING SOLOMON IN FEATHERS
Raven Has ,Been Well Described by
Naturalists as the Cleverest of
the Bird Tribe.
The literary history of the raven be.
gins with Noah and Elijah. Natural.
Ists call him "the most wary, the most
amusig, the cleverest of birds." He *
has also beena described as grave, dig.
nitled and sedate and many instances
have ba"n given of the peculirities of
this historical bird.
The haill of the raven is a formidable
weapon--strong. stout, sharp at the
edges, curved toward the imp. It i- his
one weapon of offt 'se. but it ansswers
the puriose of two or three. Like the
dirk of the oldtine plainsmyn. it Is
equally available as a dagger or as a
carving knife. It can also be used as
a pair of pincers. It can kill a rat at
one blow. The raven can drive its beak
right Ihrough the spines of a hedgehog.
It Is said that the raven will never at.
tack a moan. If this be true, it is, it
is thought, not so much from any de
fect of courage as from the bird's
keen intellectual perception of what I
will. pay and what will not.
Like most of his tribe. the raven is.
in the strictest sense of the word, omn-,
nivorous. His dietary ranges from "a
worm to a whale."
Whet his nest Is built, as it, general
ly Is, beneath some overhanging rock
which quite conceals It from view from
above, its position may sometimes be
discovered by the remains of rabbit
neatly laid in the short grass at the top
of the cliff in what might he called
his "larder." But a larder implies an
amount of economy itnd self-restraint
that it is not in the raven to practice.
In districts where food is scarce the
ravens will attack without scruple a
newly born lamb or even a sheep that
has been cast.
The raven has a passion for solitude.
He will tolerate no rival, not even his
own offspring, In the neighborhood of
his throne. He drives them ruthlessly
away as soon as they are able to shift
