Studying the Huge, Ungainly Birds at
Close Range and Observing Th sir
Method of Feeding Their Young.
The first time I ever saw a motley
:rowd of half-grown pelicans I thought
nature had surely done her best to
make something ugly and ridiculous.
It was a warm day, and the birds stood
around with their mouths open, pant
ing like a lot of dogs after a chase,
their pouches shaking at every breath.
When I went near the youngsters went
tottering off on their big webbed feet
with wings dragging on this side and
that ,as if they were poorly handled
crutches. The youngsters huddled to
gether by hundreds in a small place.
Those on the outbide pushed and
climbed to get near the center, till it
looked worse than any football scrim
mage I ever saw.
In this wide area of low islands
and water it was necessary, since we
wanted to study the pelicans at close
range, to adopt some method of hid
ing. We took a large wagon umbrella
covered with a piece of green can
vas, that hung down around the .sides.
This we planted among the tuies at
the edge of a largD colony, and cover
ed the top well with reeds. The whole
thing soon passed as part of the en
vironment, while from the inside the
camera man could point his camera
out through a narrow slit in the can
vas, take pictures and make observa
tions at will.
One might wonder how such a huge
billed bird as a pelican could feed a
helpless chick Just out of the egg. It
was done with apparent ease. The
old bird regurgitated a fishy soup Into
the front end of the pouch, and the
baby pelican pitched right in and help
ed himself out of this family dish. As
the young bird grew older, and larger,
at each meal he kept reaching farther
into the big pouch of his parent until
Qnally, when he was half grown, it
was a most remarkable sight The
mother opened her mouth, and the
whole head and neck of her nestling
disappeared down her capacious maw
while he hunted for his dinner in the
Internal regions. Collier's Monthly.

If there is danger of winter injury
or even fall injury, the cover crop
is very useful in the young orchard.
Since the dates of sowing the cover
crops and the best season for prun
ing are so near together, we do not
think it makes much difference which
precedes. Usually we commence to
prune for summer work about the
first of August and sow our cover
crops about the middle. One could
afford to cultivate at least once after
the last irrigation and then sow the
cover crop, providing there is suffic
ient moisture. The best way to de
termine when to prune is to examine
the buds in the "axils" of the leaves.
If they are pretty well developed,

summer pruning, especially on apples
and pears, may commence at once;
that is, after the first of August. In
the case of peaches, it is sometimes
advisable to wait a little longer. It
is not advisable to permit two ap
ples to touch one another when first-
class apples are desired. Ordinarily
a young orchard does not need cover
crops as badly as an old or bearing
Business Secrets That Seem Unim
portant, but Are Guarded With
"Since I began to meet people who
won't let anybody see how they do a
thing because they have a secret
method which they are not ready to
divulge Just yet I have been like a
crary woman," said the housekeeper.
"There are plenty of those budding
geniuses doing odd jobs about town.
One of them came to our house the
other day to mend a suitcase. It was
an easy job. Ho could have taken the
thing into the storeroom and mended
it in half an hour, but Instead of that
he insisted upon taking it home. He
had a secret process for doing things
like that, ho said, and preferred not to
work where anybody else could find
out how he did it.
"While my curiosity over the suit
case was still seething a woman who
is quite handy at draughting patterns
stirred it still more by refusing to cut
out a waist pattern at my house be
cause she has her own method of cut
ting that she isn't ready to advertise
"Right on the heels of that a car
pet renovator was proof against all
blandishments to come to the house to
take Ej-ots out of a rug. He has a
cleansing formula which he will not
take chances on giving away by doing
work outside of his own shop, so the
rug went to him.
"The other day a man came around
to fight water bugs. In a sense I had
him at my mercy because he couldn't
take the bugs home, but he did the
next best thing and ordered me to
stay out of the kitchen while the
process of extermination was going
on. Was the process dangerous? I
asked. No, it wasn't dangerous, but
It was a secret which he didn't wish
to reveal, not even to an innocent
housekeeper like rce.
"And so they coma and go through
all the trades, every man studying out
a system better than anybody else's.
When ill those geniuses let their
ideas loose upon the world something
like a revolution ought to take place."

A much mooted question now Is
whether or not there is any danger
of over-production of first-class apples
in the West during the next twenty
five years. So many apples are be
ing planted which are not adapted to
the section and soil, or the orchards
are in the hands of inexperienced
growers, or other conditions are un
favorable, ' all of which are reasons
for believing that there will not be
over-production. Less than one-third
of the trees planted each year In
Washington, or the entire Pacific
Northwest, will ever get into full
bearing. Furthermore, the increasing
population and the opening up of
new markets will have an influence.
A first-class apple orchard on good
land will be a good thing always here
in the West.

To combat red spiders, use "black

tobacco. This will kill the insects.
If this is not satisfactory, try kero

is made by using one pound of to

and simmering this for an hour, then
straining. Two pounds of tobacco
dust or ground tobacco may be sub
stituted for the leaves. Black leaf
extract may be used, one part to 65

value, and permits further dilution.
