Caught Wild Duck
That Fell in Street
C. H. Robertson, in charge f tho
floral storo of Herman Bros . florists,
ioesn't love hunting or laugh tho love
of hunting to scorn, but ho realizes tliut
thero nre more wnys of getting wild
ducks than mangling them with shot
guns. He Is now tho possessor of one
of the finest wild mallards Mint wns
ever hatched. And tho bird cnino right
to his door und fell In the street -11111081
at his feet. There was not n blemish
on It nnd not a feather was disturbed.
During one of the fleix-ust gusts of tho
snowstorm Wednesday afternoon Rob
ertson wns standing nt the door of the
flower storo at No. 10 Peurl stroot watch
ing tho whirling snow, when he saw a
wild duck fall fluttering upon the car
tmcks. He run out and picked It up
nnd carried It Into tho store. It had
apparently been driven downwnrd by a
furious gust of wind and struck some
of the wires In the network ubovu tho
Everett block. The bird wih. not In
jured a bit nnd so slightly stunned that
It recovered In a few minutes. It wus
placed In an Improvised coop plentifully
supplied with food and water. Mr.
Robertson spent all of tlio Idlo tlmo nt
his disposal getting acquainted with It
and petting It. scratching Its head and
saying pretty things to It, tempting It
with dainty bits from tho greenhouses.
Yesterday afternoon It had completely
surrendered and It now rats out of his
hand and tries to talk to him, but It
inanlfosts no desire for any other human
John Keellne, who lain a number of
wild geeso completely domostlcuted, has
offered $10 for the pet and may get It
U ho can give u bond that he will guard
It from nil harm. Tho beautiful bird
1b the purest type of tho wild mallard.
