Do Birds Protect Plants?
Prof. Andrew Allison in Progressive Farmer.
To sum up the food of nestling
—leaving tbe dove alone in the
habit of feeding its young on
seed: two wrens that fed to their
young 30 locusts in an hour were
observed in eastern Nebraska.
Counting only 20 broods to the
square mile of this and similar
| birds, Dr. Judd estimates that in
the eastern part of the State these
small birds destroyed daily 163,-
000,000 locusts. The food of a
locust amounts to about its own
weight in a day, and a locust
weighs approximately IS grains.
This means a saving to the farmer,
in the destruction of these lo
custs, of 174 tons of green stuff in
a day 1
A rain-crow contained 217 fall
web-worms. Another contained
200 tent caterpillars. And, lest
these statements sound too ex
treme, let me explain: a bird's
stomach could not contain nearly
so great a number of entire cater
pillars ; but' the rapid digestive
processes, quickly disposing of
the soft bodies, do not affect the
head parts of the insect so strong
ly ; and the finding of a pair of
horny jaws in a bird's stomach is
considered more than circumstan
tial evidence that the insect be
hind the jaws was once there.
BULLBATS AND MOSQUITOES.
A night-hawk bullbat—con
tained 600 mosquitoes. And this
reminds me of an apt comment
qiade by an ardent bird protec
tionist. A certain traveling sales
man boasted that, in driving from
one town to another, he had shot
with a small rifle thirty night
hawks from tbe fence-posts along
the road. The best reward for
such a day's work, said the nar
rator, would be to strip that
drummer and put him, for tho
night, within convenient reach of
the number of mosquitoes de
stroyed that day by the slaught
A dove had eaten 7,500 weed
seed, another 0,400 and a third
Do birds protect plants? No. 2
9,200. An active boy with a hoe
may do good work; but how long
would it take him to eradicate
9,200 weeds? The single dove
had put them, at one meal, be
yond all hope of gemination.
We too often jump to conclu
sions when we see a woodpecker
in the corn field, a dove in the
peas, a mocking bird among the
grapes; and unconßldened are the
destroyed wood-borers, the weod
seeds kept from gemination, the
cotton worms gleaned from our
fields. If we took care to strike
a balance, we Bhould find our
selves greatly in debt to the birds.
No community haa ever destroyed
Us birds without being very sorry
for it afterwards.

Judge Coodems High-Heeled Shoes.
Many really nice girla wear
high-heeled shoes in ignorance of
how awful bad such shoes are.
Justice Howard, of the New York
Supreme Court, told of the wick
edness of such ahoes in his court
the other day. "High-heeled
shoes are aa heathenish aa rings
in thejiose, or tatooing," he said.
"Such shoea are as barbarous, as
torturing and as destructive of
health aa the Chinese wooden
shoea. Both make ungainly and
deformed feet. China ia proud of
one kind of deformed feet and we
are proud of the other." 'the
judge did not aend any one to
jail for wearing high-heeled shoea
but he aaid he waa aorry Indeed
that he could not do it. He prob

not incarcerate women who load
