HKHK was a time
when the crow was
regarded as a veri
table black prince
among Ceylon
birds. The crow
may be a groaa
feeder at times,
but habitually he l*
a clean feeder, say*
the Colombo Pe
riod. Wu It not on
account of the fact that our feathered
friend wan mainly Instrumental In the
dinsemination of the undigested need
of the cinnamon plant that a law was
passed forbidding the killing of a crow
under the severest penalties? Most of
the stories which are related of the
sagacity of the crow and of his power
of acting in conceit with others are so
Incredible that I almost fear to com
promise my character for veracity by
repeating them. For instance, crows
hare be hi known to undo a paper par
cel In order to pry Into Its contents;
to untie the knot of a napkin Inclos
ing provisions; to remove the peg by
which the lid of a basket was fastened
down —always with some unhallowed
object in view; to hunt In couples after
a brood of chicks, one diverting the at
tention of the hen-mother by repeated
feints in one direction, while the other
made off with the coveted prey. etc.
That they have a language of their
own. though undistlnguiahable to our
ears, by which they readily communi
cate Intelligence, give warning, secure
assistance, and combine to act In a defi
nite way. Is only too evident- Point but
a gun at a crow, and the warning cry
of “Gare! Garc" or something similar
la at once raised from the nearest out
post and echoed and re-echoed from
every tree for miles around: and for
many a long day that spot will be care
fully shunned by every crow in the
neighborhood. Put a substitute a stick,
crutch or broom for a gun a&d he will
laugh you In the face and positively
call his fellows to come and defy you
with taunts and yells of derisive laugh
ter. The most notable instance, how
ever, which I have seen of their power
of acting in concert, and apparently
after due deliberation, was what I wit
nessed on a certain occasion of the pro
ceedings of an immense multitude of
crows and which had all the semblance
of an open-air criminal court; or. rath
er. of the summary mode of trial and
execution pursued by vigilance commit
tees under the sanction of lynch law.
It was at noon and I was driving past
the Colombo esplande, when my atten
tion was drawn to a gathering of the
Crow clan in large numbers. They ap
peared to come from the mat and the
west, from the north and the south sim
ultaneously and. for the most part, si
lently. Perched on the branches of
some large trees which stood at a dis
tance and occupying irregular but com
manding positions along the seaside
were stationed certain noisier brethren
apparently engaged on sentinel duty,
but cawing their eternal khaa khaa
with a vehemence and energy which
seemed to denote some occurrence of
more than ordinary import. Perhaps
like the “Qye*! Oyez!” of the town crier
their hoarse, monotonous cries were a
summons to all good citizens to assem
ble forthwith in the interests of public
justice. Presently there was a sort of
an arrangement of the black forces.
Serried rauks formed a kind of square,
all the birds hopping on the ground,
save those on outpost duty, till the
greensward presented almost a funereal
appearance, while in the center, under
the custody of some special constables,
an unfortunate crow culprit was care
fully guarded, not without sundrj*
pecks and raps on the head and other
reminders peculiar to the force. There
was a brief silence while the president
of the tribunal appeared to be asking
the prisoner if be could show <*au*s
why senttncs should not b» passed on
him. Ca»s < 'nott(b he had. poor frl*
low. but the formula «a» unnwaala*.
as In many a higher tribunal, his caae
was prejudiced; and without walling
for a reply he was ordered to be*
drummed out of the ranks, banished,
outlawed —que sals-je? The sentence
was received with acclamation. There
was a universal clamor and uprising

A young man with a pet fawn trot
ting behind him attracted attention on
a recent afternoon on the Whit* House
road In Portland. say* the Portland
Telegram. The little creature was per
fectly tame and on the approach o t a
team would timidly rul to the boy‘a
aide, aa though seeking protection. To
a well-known insurance man. who waa
on the road driving with hU wlf*. the
lad had told the alory of hla acquui
tlon of the fawn.
mmdf weeks ago the boy waa fishing
on the Tualatin river. FT*b were plen
tiful. and. engrossed In the sport, the
lad kept hts eyes on the rtppie. taking
no cognisance of what was going on
behind him. A bleating sound from
the bank above him be paid no atten
tion to thinking It was some stray
lamb. The bleating was repeated a
number of time*, but the boy was fish
ing and the trout were rising freely.
1 h«yi came a patter of tiny hoof* down
the river bank and a little cold noae
was pushed in his band. looking
down, the boy found the fawn standing
beside him. apparently without fear,
the pleading look In Its big brown eyes
asking help Its neck and one side of
tbe head waa covered with blood, still
wet. its limbs barely supporting its
frail body. The boy's first thought
was that the waif had been wounded
and in attempting to reach water had
come out on the river bank at the
point of location being the runway, at
through sheer weakness, being unable
to go further, had tumbled down to the
stream, landing by his side. Picking
the little thing up in his arms, the lad
waded out on the ripple and. washing
the blood from the fawn’s neck, found
it uninjured. Some pot-hunter had
phot the mother doe and. with her
dying strength, she had plunged back
through tbe timber to reach the baby
deer, born but a few days before. The
fawn had evidently become alarmed
and started to And the buck. Ita one
point of location being the runaway, at
the river, where, duriug its few days of
life, the two had nightly come to drink.
The boy. who fcave his name as Frank
Harrison, took the fawn to his home,
where there was a baby brother and a
nursing-bottle, and, together Mrs. Har
rison Is bringing up her own baby and
the orphaned deer. It was less than
an hour before the fawn had accus
tomed itself to the new surroundings
and was perfectly at home. It at once
attached itself to the boy, Frank, seem
ing to look on the lad as its natural
protector and now wherever the lad
goes the fawn is sure to follow.
Joke on Him.
“These Jokes about the young man
staying so late." remarked Chollie at
11:58 p. m., “make me tired.”
“Dear me!” said Maud Edith, “I had
an idea you never got tired.”—lndian
