THE SONG OF BIRDS. Effect of Separating Nrstllnirs From Others ot Their Klad. Professor Fcott ot Princeton has made rniuij' experiments with wild bird In the last few years to deter mine how far their song was an imita tion of that which they heard while living among their relatives. By tak ing npwly hatched broods into his houe before they had a chance to be thus influenced he was able to make significant observations. He had a brood of boliolinkp and two broods of red-winged blackbirds. The blackbirds were about a week old when captured, but the hobolinks had been hatched only four days. All of them were taken eaily last June. The blackbirds and bobolinks were con fined In separate places, the former having the freedom of a large room, while the bobolinkf. were in a spacious cage. The former began to sing in Septemlier and the latter in Novem ber. Professor Scott purposely allowed them to hear the songs of bird of other species, but tried he thinks suc cessfully to keep them from hearing the notes of any of their own kind. The following story is bused on three weeks observation of the bobolinks and six weeks' observation of the blackbirds: Care has been taken to have com petent judges, well acquainted with the song of both species, listen to the song of these birds without seeing the singers. In no instance was the song n cognized; one listener ascribed the song of two red-winged blackbirds to the brown thrasher, aud was wholly unable to form an opinion as to what birds were singing when listening to the performance of two bobolinks. It should be stated that there were but two males of each of the species in question from the broods that had been reared. The bong of the lololInks is loud and brilliant as well as sustained; that of the red-winded blackbirds is even of greater volume, and may be best described as continuous. A word seems essential as to the call notes of the two kinds of birds in question. I have failed to distinguish anything that resembles the call note of the boltolink in its wild state, nor any sound that emanates from the two representatives of this species that are under observation which could lie re ferred to bobolinks in a wild state. The interval of the notes and the duration of the song -eem. however, not unlike these of wild boboling. One of the young b'rds, moreover, has been no ticed, lwth by myaelf nud other ob servers, attempting, with a marked de gree of success, to sing the continuous rolling warble, v ith its rising and fall ing inflection, that characterizes the Harz Mountain roller canary. The call note of the red-winged blackbird Is clearly distinguishable in the two red-winged blackbirds under observation, but Is the only sound that might be referred to that species. The song of these two birds seems to be made up of a composite Jumble, where in robin and thrushlike notes of great clearness and volume predominate. The duration of the song is not marked by any particular break, the performance generally lasting from five to ten minutes. The clear robin' and thrushlike notes are connected by fainter warbles and laps, the whole being continuous. . -THE BARGAIN HLXTERS." Forty dollars" given away.

TIBER FOR POSTS, POLES AND TIES, Demanil Is Inrreasinjr, While the Natural Supply Is Almost Exhausted. PROFIT IN THE CULTIVATION. High Prices for All These Kinds of Timber Old Osage Orange Hedge for Fence Posts. SPECIAL COr.r.ESPONDF.NCE. Columbia, Mo., April 1'. The rapid decrease in the available supply of timber in Missouri for use as fence and telegraph pnats and railroad ties has led to grave apprehension that in a few years the natural supply of these materials will have become exhausted. Original investigations of the lumber Industry and forestry of the State are lieing made by Missouri Vntversity. and it is probable that some means of preserving the State's natural forests will be suggested. The planting of plantations In fence-post material will be encouraged and other means used to prevent the extinction of the forests. The decrease in the natural supply of these materials is well illustrated by the rapid rise in prices. A few years ago fence posts could be bought for 4 or 3 cents each. The supply is now so scarce that posts of an inferior quality bring from 10 to 20 cents each. Telegraph poles have increased nearly ,V) per cent In price and railroad ties, have increased i5 per cent. These In creases are for the past five or six years. A still greater increase in price may be expected iu the next few years. The decrea.e if natural timber in the Mississippi Valley has lieen generaJL On the eastern side the destruction of forests has been greater because the supply was greater. In Indiana, the natural supply of fenee-pnst material has been exhausted and the farmers of that Slate have to depend on im ported materials, or posts that have been grown for the purpose. On the west side of the Mississippi a condi tion of greater scarcity prevails. Little tlmlier is left in Western Iowa and Missouri. In Southwestern Missouri there U yet a remnant ot what was once a large forest of Ited Juniper, or Cedar, bnt the supply can scarcely last a half dozen years longer. The region has leen penetrated by railroads, and it is being shipped out as fast as it can be cuL Red Juniper forests iruother parts of the country have been de stroyed in the same way and no nat ural supply of that timber in this coun try is large enough to be reckoned on in the future. The piesent high prices for material of this sort make timber growing a profitable industry, and if the prices continue to' increase, as there is every reason to lielieve they will, timber growing may become one or the im portant industries of the country. Gov ernment statistics collected on this subject show that on many farms i-are-fully planted plantations of Catalpa or Red Juniper will. In ten to twenty-five years, yield returns equal to or in ex cess of the agricultural crops for such n ieriod of years. As every year finds the natural supply of timber scarcer and the prices higher, profit in timber growing is bound to increase. Those who have given the matter careful study believe that a plantation care fully planted In Osage Orange or borne other good tree will, in ten or twenty years, yield returns to the ovtner in excess of the value of eio'is for that period. Experts iu the employ of the United States Bureau of Forestry are of the opinion that Missouri is one of the lrest States if not the best Slate iu the I'niou in which to make snch planta tions. Here the supply is scariest, the soil the most fertile and the price" highest. A telegraph pole lasts bnt ten years. Fence posts and railroad ties last an equal length of time, so that every ten years sees one genera tion of poles, posts and ties thrown away and a new lot ei)t. The supply in Missouri Is not equal to tin: demand and the railroads are compelled to im port materials used in building or re pairing their lines. The growing of fence posts brings the quickest returns and has proven the most popular among those who have taken up forestry from a com mercial standpoint. The liest timbers for this purpose are Osage Orange. Locust. Hardy Catalpa. Red Juniper iCcdar). Mulberry, Black Walnut, Oak and ash. usage orange posts nave been obtained from native timber and from old hedge rows, mostly from the latter. This tree has been used ex tensively as a hedge plant in Missouri TERRIBLY AFFLICTED Kansas Man Uhn Lived In Con slant Dread.

Hedge row sometimes turn ont as many as twenty-five fence posts to the rod. A these posts will easily sell at. JO cent, a mile of old hedge fence is worth nearly $100. It requires from twelve to fifteen years" growth to reach a size suitable for posts. The Red Juniper (Red Cedar) ' a durable anil valuable) post timber, commanding good price everywhere, but It will probably never become popular as a domestic pot timber, except in limited areas. The use of fence posts is rapidly Increas ing, as old rail and hedge fences are being replaced with wire fences. The timbers most used for telegraph, telephone and electric power and light poles are Tamarack. White Cedar and Red Juniper. These kinds of timber are so popular that if the supply were to hold ont nothing could displace them. Their life in the ground is about ten years, and over 600.000 poles are used annually in the United States to repair telegraph lines alone. The building of new telegraph lines, to gether with the number used by tele phone and electric light and power lines increases the number of poles, wed nnnuallv to over 2.000.000. The cost of poles of this sort has increased much more rapidly than the cost of fence posts and ties. A post can be grown comparatively quicklj', and In au exigiency most anything can be used: but a telegraph pole must le long, .straight and of good quality. Timbers that fulfill these conditions are few. and a number of years are re quired to grow them. The poles now are ttorth from H to $50 each, and when the natural supply runs out much higher prices will prevail. The man will lie fortunate then who has a plan tation of Red Juuiper or C.italpa. The timliers most in use as cross tie for railroads are White Oak. Burr Oafe. Post Oak. White Cedar and Red Juniper. Prices range from 30 to r.o cents each for standard sizes: 620.OOU. 000 ties are in use in the railroads of the country aud 90.000.000 arc r quired annually for lenewals. Tract of timber land in all parts of Missouri which formerly gave employment t large numbers of men in the tie-making Industry have become so thinned out that tiemaklng Is profitable in only a few localities. Railroad officials, real izing the seriousness of the situation have in a few instances established plantations for the growth of tie tim ber and a large plantation at Parting ton.
