Of tb many delightful birds I had the good fortune to know, the worm eating warbler faintly hare afforded me the greatest pleasure; for tbey be come absolutely fearless of tbe cam era, and tbey place degree of trust in one that was as unusual as It waa de lightful. Being anxious to secure pbo- toftrsphs of tbe young, I paid frequent visit to tbe nest and what a wouaer fully concealed nest It was, tucked away In a email depression and bidden by the roots of an oak sapling. It would forever have remained undiscovered by me had I not, by lucky chance, observ ed one of tbe parent birds visiting it Only at first did the owners object to my Intruding, and by varloua methods did they try to coax me away from their home. First one and then the other would feign broken wings, and half - rolling, half scrambling, tbey would make their way down the ateep hlUalde In tbe bope ot luring me away. Then, finding that I waa not to be taken In even by aucb an artful device, they endeavored to accomplish their object by scolding at me. In less than two hour they quieted down and simply looked on In alienee. Tbe next time I visited the nest they made no objec tions, and I Imagined tbey recognised me, and realised that I meant no barm either to themselves or to their young, for these bad hatched since my last visit Pay by day I came to watch the little fellows, and they grew rapidly, aa an young birds da Finally they were ready to make their first venture Into the great world that, should not acci dent befall them, was to be their feed ing ground for many years to come. Aa I looked Into the nest tbe family of fledgllnga acrnmbled out ss though tbey bad been scattered by some Invis ible hand, so nearly etinultaneous was tbclr action, and In less time than It take to tell It eacb little mite ot down and rust-colored feathers waa bidden among tbe dead, crackling leaves with which tbe ground waa strewn. Though I had tried my best to watch where each bird concealed Itself, it waa aome time before I collected them all pre paratory to photographing them. Of course the parents were greatly excited birds always are wben their young first leave the nest and when the) saw the entire brood captured by one whom tbey bad considered a friend tbey seemed to regret having placed so much confidence In me. But only for a very short time did their doubts con tinue. As soon ss I placed the young sters on suitable perch they both ceased to utter that lisping note of anx ious protestation, and to ahow that they no longer feared ms tbey bopped about on tbe camera while I waa arranging It World's Work. , "Strad Bring High Price..

Mtasn Regard tht Tamu f StttfcaMai si t rtctktl Victory. Telluride, Colo., July 9. With the positive information from Lieutenant Governor Coates, a member of the commission appointed by the governoi to investigate the strike in the Smuggler-Union mine, that Governor Oman would not send troops, and with the assurance from the mine managers of the district that they could not longer afford to close down, Arthur L. Collins, manager of the Smuggler-Union mines, haa conceded several points, and a settlement be tween himself and the Miners' Union has been made. This ends the strike, and many miners will return to 4 work im mediately. , ' Tbe terms of settlement are .looked upon as a victory for tbe miners, and tonight hundreds are celebrating in Telluride. The tension of the last four days haa been removed and the miners and citizens alike are jubilant. The agreement was signed after a con ference lasting three hours. The miners declare that the settlement is a victory for them, but Manager Col lins claima that he is satisfied and that he has not conceded any material points. The local union held a meet ing tonight and declared the strike off. By tbe terms of the settlement non union men may be employed in the Smuggler-Union mines. It is certain, however, that the union miners will not allow non-union men to remain so any longer than they can help. The union is permitted, through its president or secretary, to declare a man incompetent and order his dis charge. Thi. feature of tbe settle ment is distinct advantage to the union, and will enable the union to regulate unionism in the minec- The secretary is given the right to visit the mine at any time, snd can order the measuring of the men's work whenever he wishes, even though the man has worked but one hour. ; He can also order the payment of the men at any time. Tbe Liberty Bell and Tomboy mines, which were closed during the Smuggler-Union trouble, will also open again. The following is the agreement : First The company agrees not to discriminate against the union or the members thereof, and the union and the members thereof agree not to molest nor nor interfere with non union men. Second The union expresses its entire disapproval of the recent out rages. Third The company agrees to let the president or secretary of the local union have full access to its surface property at all reasonable hours; pro vided that the work of the men ia not interfered with. Fourth The union agrees to use all its influence to stop the illicit sell ing of liquor in Marshall Basin or around the mine. Fifth The company is to have the right to let contracts to any men who wiah to take them, all such contracts to be on printed forms which are here after to be drafted by a representative of tbe union and representative of the company. A TASTE OF FREEDOM. That Is AB th Cabaa. Wtat, Savi Oowral GBx,Thta Aaawatloa. New York; July 9. A dinner was given tonight at the Union League club to General Maximo Gomez and General T. Estrada Palma, by W. E. D. Stokes. Mr. Stokes was formerly a member of the Cuban league of Amer ica, and was closely identified with the work of the junta, of which Gen eral Palma was the head. The Cuban general made a brief speech, which was interpreted by General Gonzales. General Gomez said he was deeply touched by the remarkable reception he had received in the United States. Cuba and the United States, said the general, belong together. It is only a question of gravitation when they will be one. But at present, after the great struggle in which thousands pf lives were sacrificed, and when men returned to their homes only to find their wives and children starved to death in the restricted barriers in which Weyler had them under his policy of concentration, they felt that they must have Cuban libre. It is now fully realized. He said that Cuba cannot get along without the United States, but the Cubans want to feel freedom. ' . After dinner General Gomez said to the newspaper men that he wished to express his gratitude to the press of the United States and ot the world tor the great good they had done to the cause of Cuban libre. He was sure that the Cubans would now establish their own government, 'and would show" the gratitude they feel for the help of the Americans in removing the Spanish yoke.
