Fundamental Pacts ns to tue Nature anil
[ tility ot the Turkey 1îuz;::*.r«l.
Th.c so-called turkey buxzr.rd !h not it
buzzard, hut a vulture, by itit ictlii-g
■jp .,11 this distinction the liu:s:aid tribe
could improve its reputation fm eiem.li
ncss. It is against the law in almost
every southern state to shoot n turkey
buzzard. There itrc (wo excolleot re-.s.m.s
for this prohiidtion: (he buzsuru an th.e
aveugcra of the .south, and there in no
telling what sort of u pestilence m'ead
turkey lmzaard would briny on if ttnykody
should kill one.
The turkey l.uzzard is a knowing bird.
He knows he is not good to lie oaten—
though his knowing this does not imply
that lie has superior knowledge—and he is
not shy of mankind. He hover:' over the
market places in the southern car, wait
ing for business to close: and when the
crowd of purchasers has departed the buz
zard descends and feasts upon the odds
anil ends that have fallen from 1 lie*
hatchers' aiul the fishmongers' knives.
The scarcity of hash, mince pie and fish
chowder in the southern states is some
thing for which the buzzard should have
credit. In Charleston there is a big pub
lic market down by the water, and the
buzzards always clean up utter business
The wisdom of the turkey buzzard is
known also by one of his expedients for
getting rid of work, which is fatiguing in
the southern states. He. goes to the
mouths of rivers, where the eontlietlng
forces of current and tide deposit on the
banks a considerable proportion of the
carrion and other unwholesome tilings
that are borne toward the sea on tin*
river's flood, and tlicVe lie accommodates
his not very fastidious appetite to the
movement- of the tides. All animals that
perish inland are found by the .mz/.imK
it is even said that flocks of these birds
will hover for days and nights over a
horse or cow that is on its last legs. A
northerner was driven out of southern
Georgia last winter by some one telling
him that the buzzards were beginning to
keep an eye ou him. Hast summer the
sheriff of a county in Florida disappeared
in the woods after having loaded up a big
revolver, and told Iris wife he was going
to shoot himself. Some little effort was
made to learn whether he had kept his
promise, but after n day of searching in
the cypress swamps the searchers sat
down in the shade of their houses and
said they would wait three days, when
the buzzards would fliul him. and then
they would find the buzzards.
The turkey buzzard, despite his formid
able look, is a harmless bird. Not only
does he never strike a creature till it is
down, hut he hardly ever strikes il ttil it
is dead.—Georgia Cor. New York Sail.
A Curious Kxperinient In Guernsey
The history of Guernsey furnishes a cu- j
rious and perhaps instructive instance of
the kind of uses that paper money may
serve. It was determined to build a meat,
market, and £4,000 were devoted to pay
the cost. Notes were issued by t lie au
thorities for that amount, and were guar
anteed on the "whole of the property of
the island, said to lie worth four millions. '
Tlie.se notes were worthless outside of
Guernsey, and so they were never export
ed. They were one pound notes, and were
uumliered from 1 up io 4.000. With them
the contractor was paid, he paid bis work
men in the same money, and those that
supplied him with materials. Tradesmen
took them for goods, landlord
and the authorities for taxes.
"Indue season." to quote from .Iona
than Duncan, "the market was complete
The butchers' stalls, with some public
rooms constructed over them, were let for
an annual rent of £400. At the first year
of tenancy the states called in the first
batch of notes, minibi-rcd from 1 to 400.
aiul with the £400 of real money received
for rent redeemed the £400 of representa
tive money expressed by the meat market
notes. At the end t.r ten years nil the
notes were redeemed through tin- appiica
period the meat market has returneel a
elear annual revenue to tliestatesnnd con
tinues to afford aeconnnoelatioit without
out having cost a farthing in taxes to any
inhabitant.—Cassell's Family Magazine.
