I had not seen their maker, but I know who he was; thick-bodied, short-legged old Mr. High-Power was in that burrow. My spade cut into the den but I came upon the owner sooner than I expected. Hearing a slight thumping sound behind, I whirled and there stood a huge skunk staring with black, expressionless eyes, and making little stampings with his lore feet. I had not noticed that there was a back door to his home. He could have fired upon me behind my back and I would yet be wondering what happened. But he took no such advantage. In a kind of panic, I *' hit him with the spade, and th blow paralyzed him so there wa no odor. Why didn't he "shoot" me whil he had the chance? Because o stupidity, and also because h didn't want to smell his own am munition. For he never uses his weapon unless driven to it. Henc he usually threatens an opponen several times before dischargin his gas-cloud. Such a device for holding of enemies has not been good f o r th skunk's brain. Well might he ask Why sharpen my wits when all need to do is to show 'em wha will happen if they get too close? Does this explain the hundreds o skunks that are killed every ye; on the highways? I have watched skunks eatin grasshoppers and other non smelly creatures, and as I watch wonder. A chicken can eat insects and change them into tasty flesh But the skunk changes them-some into skunk flesh--but som All No. 2 Poultry 4 cents' less.

Ho is not alone, of course, in this ability to make deadly or bad smelling substances from harm less ones. All snakes produce thei poison in a similar manner; mani insects have bad odors, and the skunk himseU belongs to the weasel family, every memebr of which has a stench. ? he , skt i n ^ is an oute ast ,,.,,,,,,, animals.

I recall one man, also, who was hit squarely by a skunk; blinded at first, he was over it in a week I laugh even yet at his accoun of the incident. I met him and inquired concerning his bandaged head. "It was this way," he said I dug 12 skunks from one den tnought there was another one in there, so I got down on my hands and knees to see--and there was!' Anyone looking at a skunk might think that nature had tried hard to make him easy to see.

The climb In output of the industry last week- to 78,705 units from 75.660 the preceding week was called by the service "the first step of what I, Indicated as tl,e slart of the iprinj upturn." A.I who has studied him, believes the opposite. He says the screaming color pattern is a camouflage- nature's method of making him hard to see. Thayer photographed skunks against different backgrounds and from the position a mouse might be in when looking up at a skunk from the ground. As I look at these pictures, I agree with him. The white of the skunk's back melts into the background of the sky, and the rest of him looks .but little like a skunk. If the field mouse sees the skunk as I see him in Thayer's pictures I know why he so often falls victim to this prowler. With such a color and such a weapon, one might ask: "Why hasn't old Mr. High-Power overrun the land?" Well, nature believes in balance and hence has made a few animals who car "stomach" even a skunk. Foxeb destroy young skunks, and the Great Horned Owl is his tireless enemy. Yet foxes, owls and automobiles cannot keep him clown in spite of his stupidity. But with this poor quality, it is his misfortune to possess a good-looking coat. A few dollars a skin is enough to set men upon his trail and this, along with his habit of sleeping with several others where all may be dug out at once, makes the yearly death-list a long one. Old Mr. High-Power can survive his natural enemies, but man may destroy him some day. Mav that day not come, for in spite o'f his odor, he is a mild, sweet-tempered fellow with a reputation far worse than his manners. year ago output amounted to 54 445 units compared to which last Week's production is a cain of 45 per cent.
