NEW YORK. Sept. 8. Benjamin Groner, a farmer In tho Blrdseye Hol low neighborhood, Just over the iSew Jersey lino from Goshen, N. V., in studying the habits of hawks noted that those prowling and snooping birds, always perched on the branch of some tree or on a high fence or other good point for observation near a poultry yard, and from there tool: a comprehensive view of the sur roundings and thejr possibilities be fore swooping down on the contents of the yard. That set farmer Groner to thinking, and he thought to such purpose that it resulted in his devis ing a contrivance which he believed with be the ruination of every hawk that-came nosing about his premises. He had a scythe blade made of the best steel he could procure. He ground and whetted the edge of the blade until it was as keen as keen could be. Then he fastened the butt end of the blade w.'th bolts tight to a high pole near the top, edge up, and at an agle of 45 degrees. The pole he then set in the ground a few rods from his poultry yard, at the edge Of a wood lot. Farmer Awaits Results. For several days a big hen hawk had been sailing around . near the pemises, and from a perch on the dead limb of a tree not far from the spot where Farmer Groner subse quently set his scythe blade trap had swooped down and confiscated one of his fattest chickens. The farmer hav ing set his trap, chopped that dead limb away and awaited the result of the experiment he was making. In the afternoon of the day he set the trap the hawk came sailing along over the tops of the trees. Farmer Groner was in his barn and saw it and watched its maneuvers. The big bird sailed down to the tree where that dead limb had been. Not finding it there, the hawk circled about a few times and then dropped down on the outstretched scythe blade, which appeared as a conven ient point of observation. Sliced Off Its Claws. The instant the hawk lit it besran slide down the smooth slant of to NEW COALING MACHINERY SAID TO BE FAILURE f?AN FRANCISCO. Sept. 8.

The bird fluttered to 'the ground, but as its wings were still at its command It flew away. And It has never come back to Farmer Groner's place again. - Going out to the trap pole and find ing the talons of the crippled hawk, Farmer Groner knew thnt his ren dering over the ways of hawks had of the conclusion he had come to, and next morning he discovered that he had builded even wiser than he knew, for he found a couple of sets of owl toes on the ground beneath the scythe blade, lie had not calculated on owls, but holding the old-fashioned belief that those nocturnal prowlers were habitual robbers of hen roosts, he gloatingly accepted the evidence of the efficacy of his trap as an owl discourager. Ever, since that installing of the scythe trap for business on the Groner farm it has been kept on duty, and the frequent finding of hawk and owl claws scattered beneath it and the noticeable increase in his poultry Hocks are incontro ertlble proof to Farmer Groner that it is do ing the work it was planned to do. An owl or hawk that lights on that terrible perch is forever unfitted for stealing chicken3, for both birds cap ture their prey with their claws.
