FLIGHT OF THE SNIPE.

The flight of the snipe Is swift, vigor
ous and aerially for the first few yards
erratic. The bird gets under way
smartly, And as a usual thing goes bor
ing up wind In a style rather sug
gestive of a feathered corkscrew. A
Series of electrical zigzags get him to
top - speed, whereupon his progress
steadies a bit and he darts away in
something more ttke a straight line. As
B'generat rule a flushed bird springs a
few, feet into th air, bangs for the
fraction of a second, then begins to
twist and dodge as though the Old Boy
was-at his tali. It would be very In
teresting could we discover the original
causa of the dodging. Possibly some
ancient foe, now long extinct was best
baffled by that mode of flight, for
there usually Is some such explanation
foe peculiar actions by wild things.
Because tha flight happens to be puz
cling , to a gunner is no guarantee that
the bird dodges for that purpose-such
aa exslanantlon would Imply a deal
more Intelligence than the entire tribe
Df enlpe are possessed of. Snipe, of
course, dodged oa the wing long prior
to the appearance of firearms, and tt
is extremely anUkely that the erratic
flight haa anything In the nature of
protective tactics against the devices of
human foes. Edwyn Sandys In Out
