One ot tko most interesting trait
about the woodcock is tho fact ot Its' oo
caslonaUy cohveyia'g its young through
tko air, which'la ,done by only one or
two other birds. This is no rocont dls
eovery. Tho f set waa known as early aa
tko middle of last century, though Oil
bert White rightly surmised that those
observers wore mistaken who fancied
the young were conveyed either by off
In tha bill. It is Just as erroneous,
however, to substitute tho olsws, aa
some have dono. The 'truth Is that,
when the parent bird wishes to convey
her young one from a place of danger
to one of safety, tho tiny thing is gently
prossedibetwcon tho feet and against'
tha breast,' tho aid of tho bill 'belnr 're
sorted to only when tho burden haa been
hastily taken up. "-In this way the whole
of the brood Is sometimes removed from
on part of a wood to another when the
birds have boon much disturbed. Oa'
this subject' thorp is an 'interesting note
la "Lays of tho Deer Foremt," by that
brothers Mtuart: '''Quo morning sitting
on a gray stone, Itsaw a dark rye whloh
was nxed upon mine from the bod 'of
leaves (before tne, wliensuddehly the
little brown liend of a young, woodcock
peeped out f rohi tho feathers of' the old
one's breast, uttering thst plaintive cry
for) which language has no sl'jfn. There
wore .two more young woodcocks, and to
relievo tho nnxtety of tho mddrt, I left
"her. Near the pluoo where 1 found her
.thsro waa a soft, green strip, such aa
woodcock love. I had no doubt that
taVfeuilly would be there next day; and
'as I psssnd near I" turned nsldo to ' sso
what they were doing. Upon a dry bank
Hall way down (lie lime, I almost stum
bind over a bird, whloh roso at my feet;
and as it darted through Ihn trees I saw
that it had soiui'thlmr In Its claws, nnd
at tho ssme time I heard tho plslntlvo
cry of young woodi-oekri Just under .my
fecit. Hooked down there wero two;
and I thought a hawk had carried off
the third, and perhaps killed the mother.
This, however,' f found on following the
bird, was tho old woodcock, which, being
flushed again suddenly, after n low flight
of .only ji fow yards dropped what it was
carrying her own young woodcock."
This trait may 1m confirmed by any one
who will look out tho bird In its
haunts, and 1h all tho more Interesting
as it seems to bo an acquired une. Tflu
bird is in no way adapted to transport
Its young through tho air. Tho (lontlo

drift Into writing' for" the press IIP aba
bad the slightest oiicournjiumont. And'
when they begin to writo ot course the
first thing they do Is to select a nom de
plume. These assumed names used to
amuse mo and I took a fancy one day to
keep track of them for one year. At
tho expiration of that time I discovered
that the dame "Maude" led thu list
Tho next was "Lillian," and then they
scampered off Into the realms ot (lotion.

tha like. Occasionally I found ono who
assumed a common pi nee tag, and 1
noticed that such a one, us a rule, gen

wonder whatever became of that long
procosslon ot sorrowful-looking creat
ures who used to come to my desk with
great bundles of manuscript and bo
seech mo to examine It and uso it, al
tho same time telling me ot tho sick
children at home who wero famishing
for broad, and who couldn't get any un
til "this article" wuh printed. At first
1 was soft-hearted nnd listened to these
appeals, but soon found that I had more
manuscript on hand than we had col
umns In tho paper. Then I grew hard
hearted. Tor Instance, 1 would ask one:
"How many children have you?" If shi
satd more than two I usked their names.
Then I would ask the nnturo of theli
diseases and sho would tell me. I would
tako the story and label It, "Katlo
mvaales." Then of the next applicant
tho sanio query. Then tho label,
"Johnny tho mump," and then I
would lay the MSS. away in a pigeon
hole and occasionally I would look them
over and wonder how the invalid corps
wero progressing. When 1 ftHt a llttlo
womanish In my heart I would select
tho "disease" which I thought was most
dangorolu and ho It. And then I used
to watch the obituary column. Hut I
never saw tho announcement of the
death of any of tho starving ones whouc
