Breast Florcest Gales. th With a JOclU and TrecUlen That I Slar Slar tcIeui, They Wrejt Their 1'oed I from tlie Very Jaw of ' the Tempest ! Theso who have net Been tv big pinioned birds of Lake Michigan in their quest for feed along the surf which washes the city shore have missed ene of the many exceedingly interesting sights furnished by this ever-changing panorama of fascinating water which tee many Chicagoans think Is tee com mon te be worthy the least attention. These great birds, says the Chicago Tribune, leek much like eagles, of, which they nre a type. They are typical Chicagoans. Many of them race in with the suburban trains in the morn ing, and out again te the weeded shore lands nt night. They1 seem te like the din nnd rear of city life. Daily they pursue their trackless path deep into the city's heart, and net infrequently sound forth their satisfaction at what they see from its business housetops. These great, cagld-llke birds are de voted workers for Chicago, workers for the happiness of Chicago people. Their wings measure nearly three feet from tip te tip, nnd their power both te sear and peise in the teeth of the angriest gale Is a marvel. The fact that the wings of these "lake gulls are heavily muscled gives little clew te the won derful secret, for when in mid-air It seems as though they must be entirely at the mercy of the gale, particularly when poising, for aV such moments they arc maintaining a certain defloite position with apparently no effort, and their entire appearance is that of statuesque repose. Fer many seconds nt a time they may be seen thus poised while perhaps within spcaldng distance huge lake craft with hundreds of tens of ballast reel and stagger almost te capsizing by reason of the hurricane that is sweeping the lake. As an ex ample of hew exceeding far the cun ning of nature surpasses the alleged wisdom of man, the motionless peise of these gulls of the lake, mid-air in a raging storm, gives evidence most strik ing If the storm brings the human mariner distress, nnd often death, it is the kind liest friend the lake gull lenews. Fer the storm docs the lake gull's markets Ing for him; it Is his greatest provider of feed. Therefore, when tempest is howl ing nnd angrily hurling the billows in land from off the great, rocking plateau of water is the time te bee these gulls busiest in their quest for feed. A hterm en the lake means the casting towards shore of quantities of dead fish which, were it net for the gulls, would add te the city's pestilential p'.lbllitk-s. With keen eyes scanning the surging flood these great birds, riding mid-air, and usually but n short league from shore, wait ns If at perfect ease for the ap pearance of their feed Sighting a fin ny enrcass. they take a peslti n imme diately above it, then drop like a bhet upon their pric. nnd sceisinjjly with out teuehtng'the water they seise the flsh 'and sear gracefully away The ab solute nicety with which they gauge their drop which is usunl'y a iliatance of net less than fifty feet involving an accurate calculation ns te the distance the fierce wind may carry them be tween the moment of their folding their wings and the Instant they will reach the water, together with the calcula tion of the shift of position occasioned te the fish by the surging waters upon which it floats, is something past all finding out. Of course no one presumes for a moment that the gull does any mental figuring en these points; net one-thousandth part the calculating that n man would de when about te swim n narrow, swiftly-flowing stream nnd make a certain point en thp oppo site side. And yet the feat performed by the gull Is probably n thousand times mere wonderful then that of the' man who swims a swift current accord ing te his calculations. The curious may wonder why the gulls de net wait until their faverite feed has been thrown up en the beach, nnd then take it with seeminglj' less danger te themselves. Well, the reason is that unlike many people the inke gull never loses any time waiting for "a ship" that may never land. Its knowl edge of wind and wnter tells it its feed may be washed te within a red of shore, then the storm which brought it may go down, leave it there, and another storm spring up from the islnnd and wash It away again. "When dead fith are net plentiful the menu of the gull is mede up of refuse matter generally, which is flung up by the waves, as well as of various marine creatures left upon the sands when the storm has abated. When the elements have proven negligent in its behalf, this bird resorts te incursions inland. At such times the mero distin guishing traits of its honorable and fearless ancestry nssert themselves. It is bold and Independent, even te insist ing that fishermen uleng the piers are bound te share thejir baits with it.
