NEW, HAVEN MORNiyQJQURNAL AND COURIER, THURSDAY DECEMBER 20 1906
The wonderful rehabilitation of the building so long
occupied by the M. Sonnenberg Piano Co. has given to
J the central portion of ths city a magnificent st ructure.
After many months of work and many disappointments,
caused by the inability to obtain proncr materials to fill
specifications, the building is completed. It is safe to say
that no building in the business section of the city can
approach it for magnificence. The interior is nearly
done, only the finishing touches are needed to enable us
to say: It is finished. We invite the public to visit our
new building, the home of fine pianos, and see the com
pleteness of every detail which has transformed an old es
tablishment into a modern business building-.

Excepting only Yellowstone Park,

the United States. Nesting in the wa

rockbound enures, is a veritable gem
Grand Island resembles in shape a
transposed outline of the State of
Louisiana, but here the similarity
ends. The Island contains but 13,000
acres, or about twenty square miles.
It is ten miles long and four miles
Its unbroken forests of pine and
hardwood have been converted into a
game preserve in which nearly every
species of game animal and bird na

Chronicle. ; The physical nature of the
Over half the coast line is bounded
by perpendicular cliffs rising to an
elevation of from 40 to 350 feet above
the level of Lake Superior, forming
a perpetual barrier against escape. In
some places along the coast line thei;e
miniature mountain rctnges are broken
by deep ravines and gulches, which in
most cases are sequestered valleys of
singular loveliness. l!"
Where three valleys open an exit to
the lake, game fences' have been built
to prevent tho animals' from gaining
access to the mainland by swimming
the channel in summer or crossing the
ice In tho winter peason. At a point
two and a. half miles north of the
southern extremity of the Island a
game fence twelve feet in height and
extending east and west, to the ishoro
line has been built, fnclosing an area
of about 8,000 acres over which the
animals is roam at will.
Between ' two lofty ridges that
traverse the Island from north to the
sout'h Is a dense cedar swamp, three
miles long and one mile wide at ltu
broadest point. This Is the natural
home of the caribou, which feed upon
the dry, gutllnous mixture commonly
called muss and found in great quani
tlties in this region. .
The original herd of caribou was
brought to the Island three years ago
from Deer Lake, Newfoundland. There
were five animals in the herd. Like
their near relatives, the moose, they
are ilow breeders, but grow to enor
mous size. There are probably a
score of specimens of the moose fam
ily on Grand Island, one of which has
attained its full growth, nnv being
about 15 years old, and weighing 1,000
pounds. The moose . were imported
from Canada and northern Minnesota.
Other big game In., the Grand Island

it numbered eleven, but since brought

against the fox, mink and other small

given the freedom of Its several

almost extinct, is present in great
From Scandinavia twv years ago the
company imported 130 game birdu, also
members of the grouRe family, and
from Manitoba it secured a number of
sharp tailed grouse. The birds se
cured from the Scandinavian peninsula
are known as the capercailzie and or
rie. The former is possessed of habits
much like tlwe of the partridge to
the ' native to the Lake Superior re
gion. There are many other speci
mens of game birds ion the island,
among them the English ring neck
pheasant, a bird of highly colored
plumage, and the wild turkey. The
latter were obtained in the Indian Ter
ritory and are the most difficult of all
game birds to propagate.
The capercailzie, ur "black game
bird of Norway," is one of the largest
species of game birdsin the world, be
ing very hardy and frequently attain
ing weight exceeding fifteen pounds,
but when the birds are young they are
eai?y prey of hawks. The birds are
known as "rangers," for. the reason
that while in quest of food they cover
a wide expanse oi territory. During
periods of heavy snowfall they burrow
Into the snow and remain until the
storm subsides before venturing out
again. Their food In winter consists
chiefly of birch buds and In summer
they catch mice and other ismall ani
mals. They are rated .is members of
the grouse family and in habits are
much like the partridge.

hundred yards find our own Wrlfrht
brothers tell remarkable stories of
even greater achievements In this: linj
but for the present nobody is fiylng.'
Lots of people are busy with aeroplanft'
models and everybody' Is prophesying
but beyond an pecaslonal balloon, the
upper air still belongs to the birdis.and
man travels on the earth's surface just
as usual. Tills doesn't mean, of cburs$
that the airship isn't coming. Indeed,
It means exactly the opposite, for thig
general interest, together with the few
qualified successes in flying, demons
strates that it's only a matter of time
until the problem will be solved. -So
reasons the world, which regards thS
airship as a certainty of the immediate
future, and is already turning to th
Important questions which it is bound
Will it, for instance, have free right
of way? Boundary lines hitherto have
been very deep, but no higher than the
houi?etops. The title to your ljt makes
you owner of a' solid "chunk" of
ground that reaches tj the earth's cen
ter. If there are gold mines or coal
mines or oil reservoirs or any treasures
whatsoever under the 25x100 feet on
which your house stands, they belong
to you as much as the wheelbarrrow
or rose-bush that are out in the back
yard. No one can burrow into them
with impunity any more than he can
break through your fence. But how
about the realm above? Have yon
title to 25x100 feet of air clear to the
dome of the universe? Does the air1
ship trespass when it sails above as
the miner would were he to drive a
tunnel underneath? ' ' '
The same question, ;but in Its larger
aspects, has to do with nations, and
brings up a -world of puzzles for the'
statesmen who frame tariff, immigra
tion and other legislation growing cut
of international association. We have
custom houses and receiving stations
now that answer every purpose, but .
when men begin to fly over boundary
lines there'll be some mighty interest
ing problems for the officials. How
high up do these international boun
dary lines reach, anyway? An Immi
grant is here when he lands on Ellis
Island, but is he here when he is 4000
feet a'bove Wall street, say? And what
about the pocketful of diamonds that
an airship traveler may bring in when
his vessel lands in Kalamazoo, Alic'h.,
or Bodunk., Ok.,? Who owns the up
per -air, anyway, and by that means is
he to keep this property of his out of
tho hands of trespassers? These are
problems that follow the airship, and
they're nearly as difficult, too, as the
ainshlp itself. 'Newark News.
