LEGEND OF THE PEUCAN.
Bern of the Peculiar Way the Bird
Feeds Ite Young.
Perhaps the strangest of all leg
ends pertaining to birds is that of
the pelican, said to have been the
third bird to emerge from Noah's
ark. It still thrives as ancient a
type among birds as the badger ia
among quadrupeds. The legend of
the pelican is, "The pelican torneth
her beak against her breast and
therewith pierceth it till the blood
guaheth out, wherewith she nour
iflheth her young."
On examination the tradition ex
plains itself. The distinctive fea
ture of the pelican ia its enor
mous bill, with the commensurate
pouch depending from the lower
mandible. 8o great is the capacity
of this pouch and so considerable
ita strength that the natives of
many countries to this day convert
it into a very serviceable bag. The
npper mandible terminates in a
hook which curves over the lip of
the lower and is of a reddish color.
The tint of the feathers is, in ths
words of the poet, "pearly white,
but ruby tinctured."
It may be assumed, the above
facts being premised, that the two
or three eggs laid by the mother
bird have been hatched. 3%en the
parents begin to realise that the
cares of paternity are heavy indeed.
The amount of food consumed by
the young pelicans if prodigious.
Ai pelicans derive the whole of
their sustenance from the water and
feed almost exclusively on fish, the
u»e of their formidable fishing im
plements is apparent. Whether
they are wading or swimming, they
dredge and scoop ent their prey
into the pouch, where it passes
through some amount of macera
tion before being given to ths
At this point enters that curious
act to which the observers of so
many ages have given an incorrect
In order to eiect the contents of
the pouch the bird presses its bill
strongly and with a kind of spas
modic action against ita breast, and
the pinkish hue of ita feathers, the
red tipped bill and often enough
the blood of its captured victims
combine to produce the effect that
gave birth to the legend.
'• """i* tradition seems to
" lonnd credence throughout Chris
tendom, and the proverbial "peli
can in her piety" took root both aa
a symbol and a phrase. By de
crees the figure of the pelican feed
ing her young developed into a com
mon emblem of charity, the use of
which prevailed in southern Europe.
The figure is sometimes found
carved in wood or stone work of an
cient English churches and is still
used as a symbolic emblem of char
ity. The pelican is often used, too,
as an ornament of the lectern in
Episcopal churches.—New York

FUET DUSKY PETE.
The Nag Reaponilble For th« Kx
preaaion a "Dark Herae."
Here it the real story of the
"dark horselt came down to the
son of a man, who had it from his
father, who in tnra got it from his
father, and so on luck to a time
when there lived in Tennessee 'a
shrewd old chap named Sam Flynn.
He was by way of being abont the
cunningcst horse trader in his state
and generally contrived to have in
his stable a nag or two that could
go along some. These he used for
racing purposes, particularly when
he chanced upon a town where
there was sporting blood in the
course of his travels.
Flynn finally picked up in a swap
a black horse which he called Dusky
Pete. The horse was close to a
thoroughbred, and the shrewd horse
trader was not long in making the
discovery that he was something of
a marvel in speed. But this fact
he cunningly kept to himself. He
roughed up the horse's coat and
made him look as little as possible
like the real wonder that he was in
Once he had got Dusky Pete to a
point where he looked the part of
a horse vagabond, Flynn quietly
rode him into a town one fine dav,
where a rustic race meet was m
progress. Dusky Pete merely look
ed like a "likely LOBS" for swapping
purposes. Pretending to be inno
cent of everything connected with
racing, Flynn entered his horse in
one of the events. The village
sports took his bait to a man. They
backed two or three of the local
fliers against Dusky Pete for every
dollar they could beg and borrow.
The old horse trader moved
around in the crowd and took ev
ery bet that was offered, most of
them being at big odds against his
horse. Just as the horses were be
ing saddled for the race old Judge
McMinamee, the turf oracle of that
part of Tennessee, turned up at the
track and was immediately impress
ed into service as one of the racing
As he took his place in the judges'
stand he was told how the betting
odds had been going and of the
presence of the old horse trader
who was so foolish as to think his
nag could beat the local cracks. The

At that Judge McMinamee ran
his eye over Dusky Pete and in
stantly recognized the veteran racer
under his ruffled coat of long hair
as an old campaigner.
"Gentlemen," quoth the wise
judge, "there's a dark horse in this
race that will make some of you
look sick before supper."
He was right. The dark horse
lay back till the three-quarter pole
had been reached 'and then went
to the front with a rush, taking the
race with ridiculous ease and clean

Erosion In The Southern Appa

Extenalre Deatraetlen la Mountain
Areaa ConatltnUng the Headwatera
or Important Beater a Rivera.
A report on an exploration in the
southern Appalachians, by L. C.
Glenn, professor of geology in
Vanderbilt University, just pub
lish by the United States Geo
logical Survey, is a timely contri
bution to a subject now engaging
wide public attention. It places
in the hands of those interested in
the best utilization of the great
Appalachian watershed the most
authentic and de ailed informa
tion yet pn sen ted on the subject,
representing as it does the result*
of expert field investigation.
A Story ofßnlned Lands.
The purpose of Prof. Glenn's
study was to note the extent and
the effects, and so far as possible
the causes, of erosion in the re
gion examined and to determine
the means of preventing the wide
spread evil results of unwise agri
culture and lumbering. Accord
ingly, he traveled from stream
valley to st ream valley tbroagh the
southern mountains, noting and
recording with great exactness
hillside and mountain side wash
and wear, soil removal by gullying
and soil burial by overwash stream
clogging and stream overflow, the
filling of mtll ponds and the wreck
ing of dams and bridges, and nu
merous other evils that are attrib
uted by many observers, in large
part, to reckless deforestation and
injudicious attempts to cultivate
slopes that are not adapted to

Prof, Glenn's studies included
parteof 8 States—-Pennsylvania
Virginia, West Virginia, Norlh
Carolina, South Caroling, Georgia
Tennessee, and Alabama. In the
that steep slopes formed of cer
tain rocks could be safely culti
vated, but that others, no steeper,
composed of other, different rocks
were cultivated with disastrous
results. Observations were made
of countless gaping chasms start
ed in steep hillsidea by the drag
logs "snaked" down from timber
ed hilltops—chasms that cave and
throw down timber and cause the
wash of masses of gravel and cob
blestones over fertile valley lands
below. Bars and shallows formed
in navigable streams by sand and
gravel loosened far upstream by
agricultural and forttry malprac
tice were noted at hundreds of
places and are specifically men
tioned in the report.
Agrlcnltare and Poraatry Involved.
According to Prof. Glenn the
problems thus studied geologically
must find their solution in methods
that relate largely to forestry and
to agriculture. The agricultural
problem involves the selection of
the areas best suited for agricul
ture because of fertility and
character of soil and moderate
slope of surface and the study of
the ways in which such areas may
best be handled to prevent their
own destruction through erosion,
as well as the destruction of other
lands and property by the wast
material they deposit and the
floods they help to generate.
Much of the area is not properly
agricultural land and should not
be cleared and forced into agri
cultural use, because that forcing
means quick destruction both of
are* itself and of the low-lying
areas on the same streamways.
Such mikuse means also slower but
none the less sure interference

LUMBERING IN THE MOUNTAINS.
But it Should Not be Marked With
• Disastrous Slaughter With no
Thought for the Future.
} A correspondent of The Manu
, facturers' . Record, writing from
i Asheville, calls attention to the
- remarkable growth of interest in
. lumbering in that vicinity. The
• establishment of a liber company
\ at Canton about two years ago
marked the virtual beginning of
i the movement and the papers have
b earned information of other en
; terprlses from time to time. The
- new enterprises have been grad
ual in their coming and conne
i quently it is difficult to realize the
present extent of the industry—
to catch a bird's-eye view of tho
( situation, so to speak—unless the
various figures are set down side
| by side and added. After such a
comprehensive glance, The Re
corder's correspondent declares
that within a year or two Ashs
ville will be the center of as vigor
ous and flourishing a lumber in
dustry as is to be found in the
country. As to the Bource of sup
ply he says that "the Appalachian
mountain range is still an almost
unbroked hardwood forest and its
mountain crests contain great
supplies of spruce."
The inauguration of a great
lumbering industry in western
North Carolina will mean much In
the direction of development. New
lines of railroad will be laid to
get the timber to market and will
serve to furnish means of com
munication whioh „ is sorely
needed. The lumbermen will
inevitably be attracted in large
numbers and their wages will in
some measure increase the gener
al prosperity. These benefits are
offset only by a danger which is
impending. There is lumbering
and lumbering. Tho cutter of
in the section ;lt is too much to
expect from human nature to sup
pose that he will sacrifice imme
diate profit for the sake of a fu
ture in which he does not expect
to share. Consequently, a large
part of the lumbering carried on
in the Vnited States has been
marked by disastrous slaughter
of growths which should not have
been touched until older. It is
perfectly feasible for the citizens
of western North Carolina to
welcome the newcomers with the
hearty cordiality their coming de
serves and at the same time to
impress upon them that their op
erations must be carried on not
entirely as if the deluge was to
follow the completion of their
work. It is of the highest impor

Representative Ewart, who by

ed the habit of continuously in
troducing bills, has just proposed
as measure wnich may result in his
political incineration. He pro
poses to place a tax on "dogs, jus

to further burden down their

gree, as it were. Instead of being
taxed the bachelor stands out
alone as in first need of pension.
Mr. Ewart's inhumanity is only
surpassed by his utter recklessness
in classing the last two mentioned
species along with the first. . A
bachelor may lead a dog's life,
metaphorically speaking, and at
times the justice of the peace may
consider his lot nothing short of
beastly, but to put the two on a

a punishment not deserved by
