Dr. Surface Gives Some Ad
vice of a Startling Nature
to An Erie Inquirer
If blackbirds bother you, shoot rock
ets or Roman candles at them after
they have ceased chattering and gone
to roost at night. Pounding of tin
pans when there are no newly married
couples to be given calithumpian sere
nades is also recommended as an effi
cacious way to get rid of the dark
coated nuisances. These bits of ad
vice are given very seTiously by Dr. H.
A. Surface, the State Zoologist, in a
letter to an Erie county man who
wrote to him to know the best way
to get rid. of tl?,e pcsUferous black
Dr. Surface says in his reply:
"I recognize the fact that it is not
wise to recommend shooting birds in a
town, although if such a thing were
possible it would be very effective. Yet
there is another means that I consider
better, and also safer to your residents.
This consists in firing Roman candles
and skyrockets through the trees in
which the birds roost. It is remark
able what an effect it Ims on a bird or
animal to disturb it in its sleeping
place. If efforts are made to drive
these birds away as they come to the
trees in the evening to roost, they will
soon go elsewhere and be afraid to re
"I recommend that pieces of tin be
hung to the limbs erf the trees and
strings attached so that these can be
pulled by boys below In the evening
when the birds come there to roost,
and thus the latter will be frightened
away, and if that be continued for a
short time,, combined with shooting
through the trees with skyrockets or
Roman candles after the birds have
come to roost, you will no doubt, be
able to get them out and keep them
out. At best it will not. be long until
these flocks of blackbirds will migrate
southward, and they will probably
give you no further trouble until next
Fall, when it may be necessary to.re
peat the lesson."

Pennsylvania Gets Trade
in Northern Manchuria
By Associated Press
Washington, D. C., Sept. 21.—Am
erican commercial travelers are now
penetrating far into Northern Man
churia, Consul Moser reported from
Harbin to the Department of Com
merce, that he is Introducing Amer
ican trade solicitors to Russian firms.
Recent orders th?« placed in Harbin
for American goods Include Pennsyl
vania watch cases, $25,000 worth of
Massachusetts shoes, New York roof
ing, California dried fruits and Penn
sylvania rubber goods, while several
orders are pending for railway sup
plies and other goods.
A Californian told me that the peo
ple there paid less attention to religion
than elsewhere because there was so
much sunshine. The climate was so
delightful that they weer outdoors
most of the time, and their Sabbats
were given to excursions, so that the
church was neglected. A less salubri
ous atmosphere would have been bet
ter for their souls. And in the king
dom of God there will be many with
cause for eternal gratitude that the
sunshine of worldly happiness faded in
time to lead them to appreciate "the
light of the knowledge of the glory of
god in the face of Jesus Christ."
