I.. II. Ncil.el, well known in
Wntlsniouth, ami a former resi
dent of Murdoek, in this county,
sends I lie Journal a copy of I Ins
Nama (Idaho) Record, dated May
31, 1!U2, which contains the fol
lowing interesting story, in which
Mr. Ncilzel was one of the
pari icipant s. Ami, by the way,
we note that a former well known
citien of Plaltsnioul h, in the per
son of M. I. I'olk, appears at the
mast-head of the lleeord as
Above the Murphy reservoir on
Sinker creek, the stream passes
between walls of rock that rear
almost straight up ft height of
from .'loo to noil feet. In this wild,
weird canyon noted for its scenic
beauty, a pair of bald eagles base
made their home for several years.
The nest may be seen high up on
a point where the stone wall forms
a narrow shelf. The old birds,
that look as if they would measure
12 feel from tip to tip of wing,
have long; raised their young here
unmolested, as there was no way
to reach the nest except on the
ond of a rope, an undertaking so
hazardous few people would care
to try it. C II. llermeson of Mil
waukee, who, with II. H. Neitzel
and a party of friend were look
ing over the irrigation project,
concluded he would like to have
the birds that could be seen and
looked to be fully half-grown.
No rope could be obtained, but
Mr. llerineson was insistent, so a
wire was secured that would hold
him, and after an arduous climb
to the top of the canyon, some
distance up the stream, it did mil
take lone to gel located 100 feet
above tho aerie of I he eagles. Af
ter fastening the wire to his per
Bon, Mr. llermeson was let down
until he reached the narrow bench
U00 feel above the stream. lie
walked along this until he reach
ed the nest, and after a little
trouble, he got three of the birds,
(he fourth Hying and falling to
the bottom of the cliff, where il
broke the tip of one wing. With
a long pull and a strong pull, tho
bird fancier was safely landed
with his pi' The bird thai
fell out of the nest was captured
later and all four were brought to
Nampa, Mere they were carefully
caged, and with plenty of feed
they were billed out by express to
Milwaukee, where (hey will lie
presented to the city park authori-
t ies.
It. was lucky for Mr. llermeson
lliat the old eagles were out hunt
ing and did not know their home
was being invaded. Had they been
in sigiit. nils would nave oeen a
different story. No man unarmed
could have visited the aerie with
out being- seriously injured. The
other members of the parly wen

V. J. I'iepenbriuk, the latter the

they had been lo attend the
graduating exercises at St. Mary's
Academy, and Frank reports a
very pleasant trip across Iowa by
automobile, lie says there is a
good deal of newspaper bunk
about Ibis riyer-to-river road
talk. There were stretches of the
road that was really excellent, but
other parts of it were no better
than some of our . own neglected
roads. As he got farther east they
showed more care and were kept
in dim ter siiape. peaKlng oi
dragging, be said: "It rained
bard the night before we left
Davenport, and the next morning
we came, over 57 miles of road to
Iowa City that had been dragged,
every fool of it. On some stretches
of it the drag bad barely got out
of our way, but I hey had dragged
il all." He tried to come hwme
over the southern route, but could
not cross the river at Hurlington,
as there was some thirteen miles
of bottom road that had recently
overflowed and was impassabb

Trees Growing Nicely.
A few weeks ago some of our
cit i.ens thought the setting out of
young trees along the sidewalks
to High School Hill was money
and lime wasted. But the casual
observer, w ho passes up and down
Main street, can readly perceive
that the money and time was well
invested. The trees, every one of
I hem, are grow ing so nicely that
the knockers have closed up their
fly-traps and have to acknowledge
(hat the work done by our old
friend, Despain, is bringing forth
good fruit.
