Aecurdlng to the Seattle, W-
lilliyrmtr, the law for protecting
singing birds has ta-eu amended allow
ing the instruction of the F.uropeau
robin, the bin- k-htrd, the swallow and
i he common rohlu.
Tlie writer cannot help commenting
mi such a measure as he was always of
the opb.lon that those birds were
among tliu most useful birds for the
illstructluu of 4ests. The Kurnjicaii
rod u has always tnu a favorite in lis
iiwncmiiitr.vthnt Is theF.ugllsh rnMn
(suppose, It is a singing bird and a
l-st destroyer. Tlie American robin
no donlit lielsi Ittsdf fri'dy to (be bis
clous cherry and perhaps oilier ripe
trull, but It seems to nic, that every
cherry it takes It. balances thedi-bl by
t-nllug a very great per cent of bugs,
caterpillar etc. and works early mid
late to do so. One would think it fur
isitier In protect the trees from the
ravages of Insects than to protect the
small average of fruit the birds ib-slMy
which i an In a ineiifine lie saved by
proper means, scare crow etc. Ami
what has the Innoccntswiillow ilone to
come under the ban. It has always
been understood that it rids the nlr of
myriads of (lies Unit would otherwise
prove a plague to the human family.
The trouble Is we have not enough
swallows for the amount of Hies on
this const, And what about the black
birds, are they pert too? They may
eat some grain, but 1 have no doubt
that they balance thoaccuiiut the other
way. If these birds are (.cstroycrs of
singing birds, that also Is anew feature
as the singing birds of other countries
agree very well with the nnn-slngers,
Home years ago France pass"d a law
tn dlstroy all small birds. In two or
three years the result was a famine.
They tlien reversed the law to protect
the birds, and enforce them, All birds
have their uses, the owl especially so as
a destroyer of Held pests. They may take
a few chickens for a change of diet,
hut the great good they do to the
country balances the" evil. If we keep
chickens, we must protect them and
let the owls protect us.
Protect the birds and they will pro
tect us, through the Infinite wisdom
nf the Creator. Respect the singing
birds. The sooner we get this slato
stocked with them the lietter, so that
the woods may be resonant with the
musio of natures beautiful warbler
and Its refining Influence. Then will
our Oregon be a paradise, Indeed.
Strange this coast seems to have been
forgotten In the way of singing birds
and wild fruit I suppose It was left
for man to complete the great work.

A Family uarrel Itesiills Fatally.
On Wednesday, February 27th, John
McDowell, nf Lincoln county, shot and
killed his son-in-law, John Met uleh,
There seems to have Is-eil trouble Is
ween McCaleb and his wife which
tided in McDowell having It in arrest--d
for assault ami battery un his w ife.
lie was tried and ncipilttcd.
McDowell and lib family went home
tibeiul of McCaleb, and the latter fol
lowed with the avowed Intention of
.iking hi children, who were with bis
wife al his father-liidttw's. Ile rode up
In the McDowell pi ice on horsclim k,
u ml culled from tl gate, nuking If bis
hildren were there, 'o which be whs
nswercd by McDowell i hut they were,
I le lheri'iisui, said thai he hud come
for them, and would lake them, when
Mi Ihiwi-II told blm he could not have
them. And It is understood (hat Me
Dowell immediately tired a load of
buckshot, which struck Met uleh and
bis horse, The horse became uiiiiiiin-
giible and threw McCitleh off. Ashe
fell be tried to get up, saying: "mt
have not downed me yet," when Mc
Dowell rushed out with a revolver and
11 red three more shots, all taking effect
In McCaleb' side.
McDowell Is 73 yearn old, while Mo-
Caleb Is a young man. 'McDowell
lalms he shot MoCnlch through fear
(bathe would be overpowered If be
allowed him to get too close, McCaleb
was not armed, and from the Informa
tion so far obtained It is thought that
the killing was not justlllable. The
oroticr was sent for, and the intiiiesl
Bolh McDowell and McCaleb have
iiibe a number of relatives in this
county, they having lived about six
or eight miles west of Monmouth.
