The A merican crow is a far more racy bird in his ways and 1:lens than the Eng lish rook. A feathered Gil Bias, he has a thorough untlerst:.ling of his own char ter and the estimnutiont in which it is held. He does not seat his colonies close by those of men, but puts them as far as possible out of reach of the enemy, and is content to travel to and fro daily ten, twenty, or thirty miles to hisa foraging ground. Ar rived there, he brings into play the high est qualities of the reaver. He will wait for hours while a turkey hen deposits her egg, or takes his turn with like patience in mounting guard on the corn-hfeld fence. He has his own polity, holds his own courts, inflicts his own punishments, and sets us as strong an example of the power of discipline and co-operation as any other biped brigand in Etna or the Abruzzi. His British cousin would have no chance with him. Lady Cavenlish wins praise from the, whole world for her strong and generous. Sspirit toward the Irish people.
