Have 'Killed Birch on the Wing and
Caused a Sheep to Drop Dead.
It does not often happen that a
hinl fulls a victim to u golf bi.!l in
its flight, although such a mishap
has occurred in two or three in
stanceH, nays London Tit-Bits.
1 Not long ago an incident of this
kind waa reported from JJaynes
J'ark Golf club. It took place in
tiie course of a bogie competition.
One of the phiwr;:,
i Mr. v i"''!;or,
having driven olr at the "'cventh
tec, h: hull created some :.rftoni;,!i
rncnt by cowing in contact with a
lark in midair1 and literally knocking
off its head.
A similar incident happened last
Reason but one on the ground of tha
Eirkdale club. Two members were
playing a rrmnd when one of them
made a brannie shot. The ball v&a
in full flight when a bird of the
wagtail fipecies was seen crossing the
line (if 1'ight, and the next moment
both objects eume into collision at
a (Rvnii 'c of about forty paces from
'!: 'I.ikcr.
The eoir-eopieiices were fatal to
iin- !: f climate bird, which was not
u'.hv ki A c J, but decapitated. As for
the gojf ball,. iU flight was stopped
by tin; impact, the ball falling to
die. ground within a few yards of
its slaughtered victim. Thc'incidont
had the further object of losing the
player the match, ho leaving to make
an extra stroke or two to cover the
distance short covered, thus costing
him the game.
A still more extraordinary freak
of a golf ball resulted in a tragedy
on the Baleomie links in Scotland.
In the course of a match one of the
phyers, in hi?, drive from the sixth
tec, put so much vigor into it that
the ball struck a sheep on the head
willi such force as to cause it to
i'aii dead on the spot,
A very different, but no Ic-s in
tor: sting", story vns reported from
another link in Scotland about the
same time. In a foursome match,
played at North Berwick, one of tho
golfers drove his ball' Against a wall.
It rebounded into pome rough trrass
and for a few minuter, . could not
be traced, but ultimately the caddie
found th bail lying in a lark's nest,
in which were four eggs all un
broken. For a ball to drop into a
nest of eggs without breaking any
waa sury an extraordinary occur
rence. It i not long since a plopr at
Woking in approaching the hoi.--landed
a bull on the top of thn
clubhouse. This little incident did
not, however, -upset lii3 equilibrium
very much. As nimbly as he could
kinds of Machines from $2.50Iup
he followed the ball to'the roof and
from that coign of disadvantage
played it so well that he was suc
cessful in securing a half of a hole
which everybody considered irre
trievably lost,
A similar scene was once wit
nessed on the St. Andrews link3 in
the course of a three ball match.
One of the playen happened to drive
ins Mil on Lo the corrugated iron
roof of a Riied and, in the belief!
th'it he had. consequently given, up
the hole, the other two calmly pro
ceeded with the match. But they
had reckoned without their ho-:t,
for the next moment there was a
great clatter of feet on the iron)
roof. Barely had the warning cry
of "fore" reached the players' ears
when a ball whizzed on to the course
dose by. It was that of the other
player, who had mounted to the
roof and played it from that unex
pected corner.
The Archer Flh,
The archer fish has a natural blow
gun. This animal possesses the curi

js of i:. to the iuiimyl in securing
its food. A ily or small insect oass
ing over tho water has very little
chance of escape from the deadly
J i
aim of the archer fish. The drop of
water brings down lac insect, which
is then incontinently devoured.
