A missionary returned from the is land of Leyson, which is one of the Hawaiian group, says that the island is a giga.itic bird's uest. On this speck of land the birds swarm in such numbers that when they lly the sun is darkened as if a cloud had pas sed over it. The decaying bones of the dead fowls helps to form the guano which is shipped to the cosst by hun dreds of tons every year. The birds are tame and they snap at the gar ments of persons crossing the island, so that one is compelled to carry a stick for self protection. The doors and windows of tbe house must be kept shut, for otherwise the birds will come tumbling in and take possession of the place. The eggs are garnered in wheelbarrows and are shipped to market by the schooner load. The in dustry is not very profitable, however, owing to the quality of the eggs and the long distance to market.

He was a leading politician in the early age of weS' tern Iowa, coming to Council Bluffs in 1853, and soon become a prominent citizen, having held the office of county judge, alderman, mayor of the city, was the demo cratic candidate for state treasure er in 1877, and once a candidate for lieutenant governor on the democratic ticket. He was a Knight Templer and one of the former members of the Masonic fraternity in Council Bluffs. He was a man of energy, strict in tegrity, and public spirited, hav ing ereoted the James block on the corner of Broadway and Main streets, where it still stands as a monument of his 3nterprise.
