Really thev should be called anvil birds. They sing early in the morn-1 ings when .sounds carry so lur ami when all birds and some people are happy. If you were to hear one out in the forest and had never heen told about them von would say at once it was some one striking an anvi' with j an iron hammer and letting it bound jiin' and rewninil until it stops. It is a thrilling loveable sound when heard in the depths of a delist- dew-wet forest. I always stop and sit. until the happy mimic black smith flies ft way.

Each bird has about $1.50 worth of aigrets a year that is the price paid in that section.' A pound of the best ones sell there for about $750. These people are so stupid. The best market the world had for aig- rets was the U, S. A., but when the the common sense to pass an act prohibiting the killing of these her ons. If these birds were taken alive, the feathers plucked and the birds released, the airrets could still be sold in the U. S. A. While en this trip 1 went up the j !
