THE HUNTER HUNTED.
A Curioag Adventure with, a Blno
Heron la a Swamp.
Of all the native birds in Florida
none is more interesting than the
heron tribes. Tho king of all these
tribes is the great blue heron. It
grows to an extraordinary size,
dipt. Dumtnitt, who planted the
most noted orange grove in the State,
killed one on a bayou near Mosquito
Lagoon fifteen years ago which
measured ninp feet seven inches from
the point of its bill to the tips of its
toes. The coastwise bayous and la
goons are usually dotted with small
mangrove islands. In south Florida
themangrovegrowstoaheight of sixty
or- eighty feet, but north of Gape
Canaveral it is a gnarled bush ten or
fifteen foet high. The bushes cover
the little islands as hair covers a
man's scalp. The islands are verit
able tiiickets, and woe betide the man
who is lost in them, for they aro in
fested witli sand flies, red bugs, mos--jititoes,
and scorpions. Creeks in
tense in crookedness and of uneven
Me wind among these islands like
the paths of a labyrinth. These
-Military creeks are theavorite fishing
grounds of the great blue heron.
Some of the happiest days of my life
li.ive been spent in hunting the'bird
in these haunts. Seated in the bow
of a Canadian canoe, with lnygunon
my knees and a guide in the stern,
I was noiselessly poled over the
winding creeks beneath the arching
mangroves. At sharp turns thero
was frequently a scream of affright,
tinge wings were unfolded. The
ureal bird wafted itself into the air,
and was brought to earth by a shot
well aimed. It is dangerous sport,
however, for a stranger. Even the
best guides are sometimes lost in tho
green labyrinth and suffer untold
tortures. L'npracticcd hunters are
apt to lose their eyes ; for the beak
of the great blue heron is as sharp
as a needle, and his long neck makes
immense sweep and great power.
The bird strikes with marvelous pre
cision and with the rapidity of light
ning. "When wounded itia especially
dangerous. I was once struck on
the cheek within half an inch of the
eye. The blow was made by a crip
pled snowy heron on an island in
Lake "Worth. It was just after twi
light. The darkness saved my eye.
I was in a thicket looking for birds
that I had shot while on the wing.
I saw a snowy spot in the undistin
guishable foliage, and took it for a
dead bird. As I stooped to pick it
up, my cheek was pierced as though
receiving a thrust from a stiletto.
In the spring of 1873 I was en
camped in the heart of Turnbuli
Swamp, about eight miles from the
head of Indian River. The weather
was very dry, and there was much
less water in the swamp than usual.
I was hunting paroquets, wild tur
keys, wood ducks, deer, bears, wild
cats, and pumas. The swamp is
streaked with savannas a hundred
yards wide and miles in extent.
Deer becoming scarce in my vicinity,
I set a savanna on fire one morning
while on a turkey hunt. After the
burning of the dead grass the new
crop would serve to bait the doer
within a fortnight. At sunset I was
miles away from camp. At dusk I
saw several gobblers fly into a grove
of tall cypresses, and marked them
with the intention of returning m
the morning at daylight and shooting
them from tho trees. The reddened
sky gave me bearings on my way
back to camp. After wading for ten
minutes through mud and water,
listening to the doleful music of a
death owl, I emerged upon the burn
ing savanna. The sky was overcast.
It was as dark as Etebus. A brisk
south wind was driving the fire
northward. The flames were leap
ing over the tall, dry grass, and tinge
ing tho clouds and the tops of the
cypresses an orange hue.
Suddenly I saw in the lurid light
far above" me four great blue
herons. They were in line, flapping
their wings with precision of machin
ery. Instinctively I drew my gun to
my shoulder. On inspiration I dis
charded it, for the "sight" was
invisible. The second barrel did
good work. The third heron in the
line stopped, fell ten feet, and came
swooping toward the ground in great
circles. I saw that the bird would
drop some distance away, and ran
forward to mark the spot. But the
burnt part of the savanna, despite the
lurid light from the rolling wave of
Are in the south, was as black as the
bellying darkness of the clouds. I
heard the bird strike the earth with
a thud, but did not see where it fell.
The black ashes of the burnt grass
were ankle deep. I searched for
the prize, but did not find it.
I was perplexed. Suddenly a
feathery form arose from the ashes
ten feet away. It seemed to tower
above me. It was the heron. It had
elevated the white plume on its head
as an angry cockatoo draws forward
its topknot. The plume alono could
be distinctly seen in the darkness.
With a blood-curdling scream the
tall bird darted for me. I knew my
danger. On the spur of the moment
I turned and ran toward the blazing
savanna. The bird gave cliaEe,
screaming frightfully at every jump.
I divined tho situation. Its wing
was broken, and it was thorou.-hly
infuriated. If it struck me in tho
rear with its sharp and powerful
beak, I fancied that its head would
go clean through me. In my haste
to secure my prey I had neglected
to withdraw tho empty shells from
the fowling piece. It wouldao do
I to stand" The" chance of a hght by
using tne gun as a ctuo, ior it was so
dark that 1 could not gauge the bird's
distance. Besides, the bird would
be facing tho light, and I would be
facing the darkness. I continued
my retreat; I ran as though the devil
was after me. In my flight I threw
open the barrels of my gun, and
drew out the einpty shells. In mad
haste I reloaded and relocked the
barrels, still running at the top of
my speed. Then I stopped, wheeled
about, and banged away with both
barrels. The bird shrieked worse
than ever, and was untouched.
Again I sped toward the burning
grass. I hail regainedjiny composure,
however. Fear gave way to mirth.
I laughed outright at the absurdity
of tho situation, blessing my stars
that no friends were near to chaff me.
Again I reloaded tho gun, turned,
and fired. I was on the verge of the
blazing canes, and had a fair view
of my pursuer. At the second shot
the heron fell, and the impetus from
its speed was so great that it came
against me, legs, wings, neck, and
beak, in a limp lump. I had shot
it through the neck. Its head was
attached by the skin of the neck
I carried the prize to camp. Its
plumage was the perfection of feath
ery beauty. Old Conner, my guide,
was awaiting my return with a sup
per of roasted venison and yams.
The bird was so tall that Conner
fastened its beak to the back of my
coat collar, drew the neck over my
head, and the feet touched the
ground. He afterward severed tho
head fiom the neck, and hurled it
across the fire at the trunk of a pal
mclto I have seen performers at a
circus handle a knifo in a similar
way the sharp beak entered the
tree, and stood quivering there like
a heavy-handled bodkin ; and for all
that I know it remains there to this
day. The Cook.
What a Gentleman Known ahoat
Thr l'rlee of nCoon.
A gentleman well known in this
community was presented the other
day with a pet coon by a countryman
who thought he could not show his
appreciation of his city friend in a
better way ; the gentleman(the coon)
was taken, and at once endowed
with all the franchise that an Ameri
can citizen can possess in a city home.
He made himself at once perfectly at
home, and the first thing he did was
to crawl up on the satin-covered sofa
and proceed to take a nap. The
mistress of the house seeing this re
monstrated by taking the young
friend by the chain that hung from
his neck and lifting him off the sofa,
the coon in the meantime turning
around like he had jumped from a
fly-wheel, and catching at every
thing in his reach with all four feet
at the same time. In his exit he got
his hind leg around the support of
an ornamental stand, and the irate
lady, thinking that he had hold of
thesofa, gave him a yank that al
most pulled his head otf, and brought
down the table with a $35 vase on it.
The coon seemed to take in the sit
uation with perfect coolness, and
while the lady was picking up the
pieces ho walked leisurely out into
the hall and disappeared in the cel
lar. About an hour afterward the
gentleman of the house camo home,
and, after listening to the threats of
hot water, tea-kettles, etc., from
Mrs. , he concluded to hunt
up the coon, and started on the
search but the coon was nowhere
to be found. Finally, on passing by
the pantry door, which had been left
open, and where a tub of waterstood
that had been used in washing out
the pantry, ho espied tho coon, but
the coon had turned white ; this per
plexed him. He callod his wife, who
came at once, and the cause of the
whiteness was soon explained; the
coon had found the water, and near
by was an open flour-barrel. He had
bathed in the tub and had crawled
into the barrel, and had evidently
been continuing this amusing proc
ets for some time, for he had worked
up a lump of dough twice his own
size, and was sitting in the water
rolling the pieces in his paws. Ho
was lifted out, washed and sent back
with "many thanks" to the country
roan, with the intimation that a wild
cat, young bear, ground-hog or any
thing else would be preferable. The
gentleman says that anybody who
wants a coon is richer than he is.
Knoxville (Tenn.) Chronicle.
At table The master of the house,
after turning a chicken over and
over in every possible way "How
would you carve that bird?"
"Hot," replied a guest.
