cies yf eagle is rare almost to extinction.
Thev were secured by him on a very ele
vated portion of the Sespe range of
mountains, about seventy miles north
from Sadta Barbara, where he put them
on the boat.
Having previously observed the parent
eagles sailing down the valley, he climbed
a true twenty feet ahovetlie ground before
a branch was reached, and then ten feet
more to the nest, some of the_»lk!k!£jj»tn
posing which were as thlclc as a man'a*
wrist. With some difficulty he Seeded
the young birds, then about three weeks
old and the size of large chickens. He.
succeeded in decamping withtlieia before-'
the return of one of the old Wirfls, whfch
came back shortly afterward with a'
young lamb in its claws. Though the old^
bird saw Mr. Wolcott, it did not see the
young eagles, or there would have been a,
fight. Returning to the bofffie Ttr'U'liicli
he was staying, the birds were secured in
a pen, adiT-kept three weelf^. JTJjey are
now about six weeks oTd, about two feet
in height, and can dispose of a jack
rabbit or more at a meal without indi
gestion. A few days ago a coyotc visited
the houses and destroyed all the chickens.
The eagles were then placed in the chick
eu-jien. The next morning the coyote re
turticd to get some more chicken, and iin
der the impression that these cagles 'woul'd
suit him, he got hold of one of them.
The eagle also got hold ot liim by in
serting his talons in his nose, but was un
able to drag him into 'he pen, the coyote
being equally powerless to drag the eagle
out. The coyote then concluded that he
didn't want any more eagle, and expressed
himself to that effect loudly, but too iate,
inasmuch as Sir. Wolcott's attention was
drawn to the spot and he shot the animal.
He says that Ihe full-grown eagles of thir
very rare species are eight feet in spread
of wing, four feet in height, and scarcely
any man or animal could avoid being
stunned if attacked by them in their usual
manner.—San Francisco I'ott.

getting an early start, and by driving home
after dark, the task was sometimes ac

she accompanied him on this expedition,

and everybody was anxious to discover
who the thieves were.
Johnnie and Rob busied themselves
about the house and barn all day. When
night came they attended to the chores,
and then began to make their preparations
for supper. During tbe day Johnny had
shot a partridge, and they concluded to
roast it.
"And we'll have some potatoes and
johnny-cake," said Rob, "and that'll be
good enough for anybody."
Accordingly, they put some potatoes in
the ashes of the fire-place and covered
them over with hot coals. Then they hung
the partridge over the lire, and Johnnie
volunteered to keep watch of that, anil
give it the proper basting, which he had
heard his mother say roasted fowls always
required, if Rob would make the johnny
Rob was willing enough to try his hand
at this branch of cookery, but he had some
misgivings about his success. However,
he went at it, and soon had it baking be

inga long breath.
I didn't know I get so excited," ail- H:
swered Johnnie. I feel just as wpajt. as
a baby now." ...
""iou're sure they can't dig oulf
said Rob, as he shuddered at tne sound
ef oaths add curses coming up from the
cellar. ,
"Oh, yes," au$wered Johnnie ''you
know how many loads of stones we put
in the -walls, and the logs and dirt out
side. They couldn't get out in a week."
The boys hadn't much of an appetite
for supper, you may be sure. While tbey
were debating about what it wai best to
do, they beard a rumble of wheels at the
door, and
Father's come!" cried Rob, and away
both of them ran. Sure enough, their fa
ther had come!
The boys began to tell their adventure ik
such an excited way that for some time
Mr. Kent couldn't understand what they
were talking about. When he did, he waa
almost as much excited as they were.
"Mercy on us! We'll all be killed!"
cried Mrs. Kent, frtghteDed half out of
her senses. I'll never put foot inside of i
that house while them men's in that eel- j/f
lar! Dear me! What did possess them ..
boys to do such an awful thing? I felt
as if something was doing to happen
know they'll murder every evory soul of
us before morning!" #,£
But they didn't. Mr. Kent went after gp-' y
Mr. Johnson, and with his assistance the JtLl',
thieves were captured, and taken to the
village where Mr. Kent had been to mill, if*'
it was found out afterward, when they .(J
came to trial, that they belonged to a V
gang of horse thieves, and the corn tliey
had secreieu in a swamp not lar oir.
Johnnie and Rob were heroes for along»*h
time after that, and you will hear the
story of how they caught the thieves told
