Robins Stay All Year.
llurke. S D Marcli 15. Special to
Tlio Newtiiegoiy county people
bave > been passlvel > interested In the
excitement attending the discovery of
tlio 1011 lobin in Nebiaska , an
noted by The News' correspondents
in v in ions paits of that state Robins
have boon plentiful in thiu vicinity fe > r
tlie last siweokH , and the fact that
tlioj appear about Fobiuary 1 each
jear piobabl.v explains why the oc-
cinicnco excites no comment , It hav
ing become tbo ic-gular annual thing
so that tlio people here do net seem to
icallye that theie Is anything remark
able about It , and no one ban thought
it woitli while to tii' to explain It or
find out why It is so However , this
week the subject was brought to mind
by Chailes F Doegan , a lanchman
living em Whetstone clock , twelve
miles noi th of Huike Mr Deogan
says that loblns do not como to this
pait of the' countiy from the Houth
nnj eailb i than they do to any othoi
) ait of the countiv liit the se'ciot of
he-ir e.nlv appoaiance hoio each year
lies in the fact that they never leave-
He doc-hues thnt he can show anyone
i lobin within ten minutes' walk of
his house any day in tlio jear. It
seems that nature has provided In n
can > on on Mr. Deogan's ranch a na-
tuial w intei homo for biids , where
tlie > stay instead of migrating upon
the approach of w inter. Mr. Deogan
descilbes tbo place as a eleop canyon
sheltered from the north winds by a
high bluff. At the base of this bluff is
a low of hot water springs small goy-
sois , as it weio and the steam and
waim vapor ailslng fiom these , it is
presumed , oveicomos the frigid atmos
phere of winter and keeps the tem
perature of the canyon near temperate -
ate all winter. Mr. Doegan declares
thnt snow falling In the canyon molts
nearly as fast as it falls , the ground
alwa > s being warm , owing to the res-
oivoiiB of hot water which evidently
underlie the locality , and that the
giass and other verdure near the
springs does not die , but remains
green and continues to grow all win-
tor. And hoio the robins and other
biids iemain all winter enjoying the
comforts of a steam heated flat until
spilng , when they scatter over the
surrounding country and select places
for Hummer housekeeping. Mr. Dee
gan declares that the birds which win
ter In this canyon usually start house-
Ifooplng cailler In the sprhig than
those which come In from the south ,
and Is confident that they are already
nesting this year and that within a
week or two lie will bo able to Invite
doubters to como and \levv joung rob
ins in tlio nest Ho states that ho Is
going to attempt the growth of trop
leal plants and trees In the canyon ,
although tbo available space is so
small that his efforts will necessarily
bo on a small scale , the entire area of
the canyon being not over an acre
However , ho will try lemon and orange -
ango tre' Mils year , nnd If h6 IH suc
cessful with them will endeavor to
lay out nnd develop a real tropical
garden on n small scale. The canyon
Is now heavily timbered with largo
trees and shrubbery Indigenous to this
soil and climate.
Mr. Deegan was formerly a resident
of Lindsay , In Platte county , Neb. , and
Is a man of nmiuestloned veracity.
His reports have excited a great deal
of Interest here and bin place will un
doubtedly bo visited by parties from
this town in the near future , and some
project along the line of a winter re
sort may bo broached.
The News' correspondent waa rais
ed in the town of Bassott , In Hock
county , Neb , , and remembers when a
boy of thinking It strange that the
first robins each year arrived appar
ently from the north Instead of the
south , ns the books teach. The rea
son is now undoubtedly made plain in
t the discovery of the Doegan canyon.
