VALLKJO, Cal., April '!.- TV
WASHINGTON, I). C. April 20.
Despite stringent rule- to tho con
trary, tho iinjHirting of obnoxious
animal- is constantly attempted.
Kntcrpri-ing travelers havo at va
rious time- attempted to bring in to
the United State- as a curio.-itv the
Australian flying fox. Unknown in
this country, this overgrown h.U,
which at its lnrge-t measures .more
than five feet across tho tips of its
wings, is one of tho great ots of
Australia. In their "oniupV' lu the
dem-e scrub of cullies nud svvnmifcv
they may he -een by the thousands,
crowded s-o thickly on the trees tlmt
branches are frequently broken by
tlieir weight. Their nightly raids in
search of food cover coiiMilerahlo
di-tances and they nrc c-pccjally
partial to fig, bananas, poaches anil
other soft fruit. Various expedient
have been tried to protect the orch
ards, but hitherto tho-e have proved
more expensive, than succeiful. On
one occasion some hundred thousnnd
foxes were shot at un expon-e to the
government of New South Wales for
iowdcr and shot of HO cent each.
A little later wholesale de.-truetiou
by means of dynamite nnd other
high explosives was attempted. The
foxen avoided the trees that had
been so careiullv char'ud and the
explosives did no harm.
The mongoose is another crenture
which Individuals perL-t in bringing
uninvited to these shores. For thi
it U perhaps far to hold Hudyard
Kipling largely responsible. The
mongoose he immortalized under the
name of riki-tiki-tavi in the "Jungle
Hook" is a very attractive little
hero, hut no matter what the tnon
goonc inny bo iu Iudia. in Americu
ho is a nui-ance. Wlivu no sunken
are available to npH'ao his appetite
he does not scorn chicken-, young
pigs, kid, lambs, puppies, kittens,
vegetables and fruits.
Despite oerw helming evidence of
the havoc ho created, however, he
frequently appourx as a pet iu
charge of thoo who -hould know
bettor. One woman succeeded iu
getting her specimen through tho
cn-tom- and in -afetv to a New
York hotel. There, however, his
presence became known and iu a few
hours nu inspector appeared to carry
off the obnoxious vUitor. Still the
mongoose does get in and does e
enpo when he is in. A Capo Cod far
mer wIiom poultry yard suffered
nightly raids lay in wait for tho in
truder and succeeded in .-hooting an
animal the like of which neither he
Ivor hi.- friends hnd seen before
Ultimately tho authorities recognized
it ns u mougoo-o, but to this dny no
one knows what series of adventures
led to hi presence in Capo Cod.
His pre-epqe in this hemiphere at
all L- due to .the mi-tuken notion that
he would be invaluable in ridding the
cane fields of the West Indies of
ruts. In 1S72 n Mr. K-peut intro
duced nine of tho nuiniiiN, our
males and five female-, into Jamaica
for this purpo-e. They increased
with ouch startling rapidity that in
1890 a government commission en
deavored to find some way of ex
terminating the pe-ts. Evidence col
lected at that time showed that the
harm the creatures did far out
weighed yny benefit to tho sugar
nud coffee plantations. In the mean
time, attempts had been made to in
troduce the mougoo-c into Hawaii,
but fortunately they wore not so successful.
