ome. of the American Osprey.
Daniel G. Board, in a late article upon
the American osprey, says within hal a
day's journey of New York city lies an
almost desert island, whose barren wild- I
ness is interrupted-marredI h'ad almost i
said.--only by a single habitation. A I
stone lighthouse porehed upon the bluff
at the end of the island seems a natural
accessory to this lonesome symphony of i
rock, sand' water, and sky. The inhos
pitable coast of this island offers no safe
port or harbor, but the treacherous
sandy beach is ragged and broken with
hugo bowlders and rooks, against whose
fint7. sides the angry impetus of the
storm wave is dashed and splintered into
foam and spray. The occasional frag
ments of wrecks strewn upon the beach
or forming appropriate monuments tz
the graves of drowned mariners, testify
to the danger of- the coast, and add a.
solemn tone to the sea-song of this desert
isle. A marsh or swamp occupies the
centre of the island, about which grow
trees of some height, being in a measure
protected from the winds by the sur
rounding hills or mounds, whose sandy
bpldness is scarcely covered by a thin
growth of wiry grass. At the foot of the
hills, stretching to the wator's edge, are
swampy flats, dotted here and there with
trees, gnarled, knotted, misshapen, and
dwarfed by exposure to tempest and lack
of nourisaug soil.
Each summer's vacation, as our yacht
has passed this island, my curiosity has
boon excitqd by the great number of
birds which make it their home. It was
partly to satisfy this curiosity, and part
ly to try the black fishing, which is ex
collent in the dangerous eddies of the
tide, that induced the writer, with two
companions, to land upon this island one
quiet Sunday morning. As our little
sail-boat approached the lighthouse we
saw a couple of great northern divers
swimming unconcernedly about# or over
and anon disappearing beneath the
smooth waters. After landing,wo walked
over the sandy flats, disturbing by our
footsteps scores of night-hawkr These
mystori ms birds filled the air c -head,
and darted down past our ears with a
loud whirring noise, while they all kept
up a constait repetition of their poculiar :
cry. Numerous as those birds were we
only succeeded in finding one egg. Nests
they have none; but so closely does the
egg resemble the lichens, dry grass, or i
moss, that although the mother bird may
rise from boneath your feet, it will re
(ulie a careful soarch and a sharp eye to
detect the little roundish-shaped eggs.
In the low bushes or high grass along
the edges of the swamp, we found nu
merous nests of the swamp blackbird.
Some meadow larks had their nests upon
the grass plat in front of the lighthouse
door, on top of the bluff. The sandy
face of tile bluff was perforated with in
numerable burrows of the industrious
Uin any part of the Lland, turn which
ever way we would, the large nest of tile
fish-hawk formed a prominent feature of
the landscape, and from sunrise to sun
set the American osprey sailed around
overhead in graceful curves, protesting
with shrill cries against the imvasion of
,heir territory by strangers.
Baird says that the American osprey
or fish-hawk nests almost invariably in
the tops of tall trees. He gives as ex
ooptions to this rule a nest upon a small
pine treo in Maine, and 0110 upon a cliff
upon the Hudson River. Audubon, I
bclieve,found two fish hawks'nests upon
With those facts in my mind, I was
somewhat surprised to find ospreys' nests
scattered arond promiscuously upon the
sand dunes, piles of driftwood, tops of
bowlders and small trees. The nests are
all of them rather nicely built, the foun
dation consisting of quite large sticks,
and in seine instances pieces of plank
weighing fully as 1much1 or mnore than the
bird; ever thlis foundation was a layer,
composed of seaweeds,sponges,aund other
odld material cast up by the waves, tihe
nest itseLf being a shallow dish-like hl
low, of fine soft seaweeds and grasses.
Those I found upon the ground stood
about twvo feet high, buit somo1 of them
m1 the trees would measure, from foun
f. dation stick to summit, fully five feet.
Such1 nests are eagerly seizedl upon0 byj
the purple graklo or crow blackbird, andI I
aill the interstices between the stickst
terming tile hawks' nests are often filledt
with the nests of blackb~irds. I counted<
six blackbirds' nests iln tile portion of an
osprey's nest witin sight; there were
three eggs in tile hlawk s nest, anld most
of thle blackbirds' nesta conltainled younigt
birds just out of tihe egg. Somne osplrey'sf
eggs thlat I took from a niest ini a treet
were, prettily marked withl dark purplish I
or wmol-colored markings upon01 a cream- r
wvhite ground. I nloticed, hoewevor, thatt
in four or five different nests upoen thle I
ground the eggs wore all a dirty-brownt
color, hiarmonising so perfectly wvith the
dry as-aweedl lining of the nest as to en
quir, a quick eye to detect tile egg ir
thle uiest when the observer stands onily
a fe w foot away.
After making some sketches, collecting
some eggs, and~ catching about sixty
I pounds of blackfish,eur party bade fare
well to the island(, and were rowed out to
* a passing steamer, which slowed up1 and
took us aboard. A few hour11S after we

Most farmers, probably, believe that ti
4reat bulk of the constituents of theii
3rops is derived from the soil. This is I
very great mistake. Take, for instance
i hay or pasture field. The carbon, by
Irogen and oxygen of the plants are deriv
,-d from the atmosphere, the nitrogen and
nineral matter from the soil. This woul(
be equivalent to 92 per cent. of dry ha)
being derived from the atmosphere am
mnly 8 per cent, from the soil. From thil
t may be seen that the farmer, who haj
ill these ingredients locked up in his ma
aures, which he might apply to his lant
or plant food, by letting it lie scattere
