STOCKTON EVENING MAIL, MONDAY, MARCH 3, 1902, 8 ill! GULLED BIRDS mm 8EPIII A Naturalist Explains the Reasons for This Practical Definition. From the Boston Evening Transcript. Ralph Hoffman gave the first of a senes of six lectures on Saturday atler-nuon in the Walker building, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Many children who are interested in the study were present in the audience. In this lecture he went back to the ages before there were biids and studied the gradual development from the more primitive forms. He said in part: Very few of the leading facts of geology have yet become tne common property of the intelligent public. When the great beds of coal were forming in the region now occupied by the Appalachian mountains, the world was still so young that the Appalachian range, though older thtn the ast ranges of the Ri kies, had not yet risen from the floor of the sea. The most highly developed animals on the earth were fishes and the luwer reptiks. and there were no birds and no mammals. The plants were lor the most part relatives of our present ferns, club moss and horsetails. There were no conspicuous flowers, no bees or butterflies. After the lapse of two more great periods, but still before the Rockies had risen from the sea, rept: -s had reached a tremendous development, and vt ry varied types were living in the sea. on ihe earth and in the air. some swam, some walked on two fed and held to the trees by their foreiimhs: stiil others iUv. through the air by means of memoranes stretched between lingers. They ad posstssed teeth and the long bony tad which still characterizes a reptile. In the same rocks m which the first n mams of some of these various reptiles are. we find an unusually good portrait of the first bird. It is a bird because u has feathers, but it was at first considered a reptile because it has teeth in each jaw. and a long bony tad to which its tail leuhers are attaehed in successive pairs. The discovery of this extremely interesting fossil made certain the truth which Pro. Huxley s anatomical studies had already led him to .announce that a bird is only a gloritnd reptile. From some one branch in the numerous reptile family a creature had dee)oed whose scabs had gradually changed into feathers, so that he could acquire the power of fleht. When he became clothed with feathers and his forelegs were so modified that he could fly he was no longer a reptile, but a bird, though he still possessed rep-tile-hke characteristics, such as teeth and a bony tail. The successive steps by which the birds of the present day were evolved from this primitive bird are little understood. We know from the discoveries of Prof. March that teeth persisted after the long bony tail disappeared and the forelimbs had become greatly modified, and we know that just befor the glacial period, which is put at from twenty-five to fifty thousand years ago. the world was inhabited by birds which belonged to the same families and often of the same genus, though differing specifically from those that exist to-day. The lightness of the bones of a bird, especially fitting them for flight, is obtained by the spongy nature of the boms and by the absence of marrow', and by tne existence of air spaces in the larger bones which open into air sacs in the body of the bird. The shape, moreover, of the bird's body is well suited to fight. The breast is keel-shaped, the wings are attached to the highest part of the thorax: the arrangement of the internal organs by which the lungs and air spaces are placed high while the heavy digestive organs, the breast bone and its heavy muscles below, is a natural ballasting of the freight which the bird has to carry through the air, and gives the body great stability. Still the natural adaptations of the bird would little avail for forcing it through the air if it were not for the feathers at once the sail and propeller ot the boat. If a single feather is examined it will be seen to consist of a stout quill from which two sets of barbs are divided again into arbules, from which extend still smaller growths called bar-bieels and these are furnished again with little hooks which serve to hold the bar-bicels of the two adjacent barbs tightly together, anil thus present a strong, almost airtight, surface. Without these hooks flight would be impossible. It is a significant fact that the feathers of ostriches and their km, all flightless birds, lack these barbs.

Helmholtz skewed that when a current of air warmtr, and therefore lighter, was flowing above another cumnt colder and denser .he circumstances wen? the same a? when a wind i-1 blowing on a levtl suriace of liquid. In both cases rtgular wave? are produced in the derser medium and the wave? have thetr itsb perpt ndicular to the direction of the upper curiem. A wind that will produce water wavts one meter long will, in air currents differing ten degree? C in temperature, piouuce wave? from two to five kilometers. Such wave?, whose height above the surface of the earth is often not greater than their length are like water waves that stir the whole mass cf water from the surface to the bottom. They are very frequent but are not visible units? the lowtr layers of air areit-u rated with mixture so that mans are formed. In such a case parallel bands of cloud? are procured extending over a large pci tion of the sky. In a balloon ascension IR-rr Emden of Muir ch was aide to recognizt such waves and to make such measures as to show that the mathematical thtory cf their formation was completely verified. The Height to Which Birds Fly. From the New York Sun. The aeronaut Hergcsall of Strassburg saw, in ons of his aseens or?. an eagle at a height of meters, and in another, two stones and a buzzard at ! meters. Larks have been Seen at meters, ami crows at 14n0. But these .tie exceptional heights. Biuis are iareiy Air. above Jimi meters and very few above 4s. Bird? have been released from balloons at height? varying from 9X) to 3'XD meters. In a clear atmospnere they flew directly downward, rtmuinmg near the balloon, however. if the sky were cloudy. Pigeons were released from a balloon thirty miies away from home in cloudy weather. The first p'gton leturned home in three houis, the stcor. 1 in fiur and the last took nearly a day. In clear weather they reached homf from that distance in about forty-live minutes. DASHES HERE AND THERE. Tiit-re will be a meeting of the C. L. A. S. tc-munow afttrnoon at 2:3b o'clock.

Following is the weather forecast as telegraphed to the Mail to-day: Fair to-day and Tuesday, continual cool wtather, light northerly wind. Loose'Leaf Ledger System. The Mail prints satisfactorily for the loose-leaf ledger system, ledger sheets, bill sheets and cash book sheets. There is no need of sending East or to San Francisco for this kind of work. It can be done better, cheaper and quicker at the Mail office. Sample sheets on hand, Miners Sudden Death.

The Sperry Flour Company, which ha? government contracts to supply flour for the United States troops in the Philippines, has adopted a new method of shipping the breadstuffs. It has been the custom to ship the flour in sacks, but it was found to be inconvenient, for several reasons, the chief of which was its usceptibility to moisture. Another difficulty was the delivering of the flour in shallow harbors, where trouble was experienced in getting it ashore to the soldiers without subjecting it to the water to some extent. The plan now is to put the flour into tins which hold fifty pounds each. These tins are hermetically sealed and varnished and then placed within strong wooden boxes. The flour is thus impervious to moisture, and in the shallow places where a boat cannot reach the shore they can be thrown overboard and floated to land. It is thought that the wooden boxes can be utilized to return whatever the Philippines have to export, thus making them do double duty. They Have Been Matched for a Beturn Fight at 134 Pounds. Superintendent George Eckhardt of the Athletic Association returned this morn-from San Francisco, whither he went to make a match for Rufe Turner. He found that none of the fighters wanted any of Rufes game, evidently. Britt said his father wont let him fight a colored man. OBrien made excuses and explanations, Hegarty didnt want to fight him in Stockton at all, nor anywhere else, for that matter, and, though EckhardXchallenged all the men in his class and offered a big side bet, none of them wanted the colored boy. Most of them got out of it by saying there is easier money elsewhere. Some of the fighters told Eckhardt confidentially that Turner was a hard game. Lawler talked about fighting, but it isnt believed he would have a chance. The two fought a draw once, but that was some time ago, and it isnt at all certain that a draw wasnt agreed to. Announcer Oliver took pains to state before time was called that if both men were on their feet at the end of twenty rounds it would be declared a draw, and Turner didnt appear to be himself. The San Francisco fighters admitted that Rule had the punch and they d.dn't care to have him "slip them a package. It began to look as though Rufe would have to go out of his class to get a fight, and when Eckhardt left he told Alex Groggains to make a return match with OBrien and Turner if possible. In consequence of this arrangement the following appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle to-day: "Turner and OBrien were matched last evening to meet at 124 pounds, give or take a pound, which practically means 125 pounds. Alex Greggains represented OBrien in the match-making. Efforts will be made to bring this match off here. OBrien probably consented to the match because he couldnt get on with Britt. They met once before, O'Brien getting the decision in twenty rounds. It is believed, however that Turner will win this time. Eckhardt saw Britt and Hegarty go, and he wasnt impressed with either of them. He says their style is crude, and he characterizes Hegarty as a "bum. He is fairly clever, but has no punch. Eckhardt declares Turner would make short work of him or Britt either. He al?o touts Jack OBrien to win over Britt handily should the two meet. Eckhardt is talking of putting on a club fight soon or else a public entertainment. in which six amateurs from San Francisco would contest. He says he can get six men down there vho would put up great battles. He also has in view a bag puncher who the Olympic Club men say is the cleverest in the business. He has only appeared in public once or twice, but is said to be a wonder. He will probably be brought here by the Athletic Club in connection with some fight. PLAYFULLY SHOT BY HER DAUGHTER A Kern Tragedy Wllh a Shotgun That They Didn't Know Was Loaded. BAKERSFIELD. March 3. Mr?. Hick?, a widow, and a ?i?ter of Deputy Sheriff Crawford. ww accidentally shot ye?t?iday afternoon by her 16-year-old daughter Mollie at her residence :n the Lowell addition. From the information given by those who were near at the time of the accident, Mollie Hick had taken an old shotgun from the house and was walking about the vard knapping the Iriggt-r from time to Unit-. It wa? not known that the gun wa? loaded, it not having been used for many month3. Mrs. Hick?, seeing the action? of her daughter. ami fearing that som? aceiduit would result, told the child to return the weapon to the house. At thi?, it i? ?a;d, Mollie Hicks playfully pointed the gun at her mother and pulled tne trigger. Vnexptciedlv. an explo-Mon followed, and Mr?.

The ceremony wa? performed by Justice 'Parker at the Ccmrmrnal hotel at 9 oclock. The bridegroom hail3 from Sacramento and the bride from Oakland. The former had the audacity to kd-v hi? wife in the prtsince of the witm? immediately after the knot had been tied. Subscribers' Notice. Manager A. W. Simpson Jr. of the Avon theater desires to announce to his many subscribers that he will redeem any subscribers tickets that they may have in their possession upon calling at the office of Simpson & Gray. One Year io Sao Quentin. William Robinson, nm?icd for a burglary commitltd at the Smythr- place, cast of thi? city, pleaded guilty to-day and was sentenced to a year's imprisonrrxnt at San Qumtin. Frfd Cog?ha!l and Ed Lavergne. charged wfih a burglary committed in the Cjtv Home-iad. were arraigned, bur were given a week more in which to enter their plea?. It ip understood they will pkad guilty, and that their attorney, J. J. Fitzgerald, will try to have them sent to a reform school instead of a prison. One is 16 and the othtr IT years of probably drowned. It is believed that Jack Phillips, a morphine fiend who lived in a little ehelter on Banner island with Jack Bradshaw, another fiend, was drowned in the channel Saturday night last. The watchman in the office of the California Navigation and Improvement Company heard a man calling for help about 9 o'clock in the evening. Investigation showed that the man was in the water. Phillips was near and the watchman sent him for a boat. Before he returned, however, the man was rescued with a ladder. Phillips started to take the boat back, and it is believed that he either fell overboard or his boat was swamped in the storm, because he could nowhere be found. Bradshaw reported the facts to the police. If he is drowned it will be several days before his body comes to the surface. The boat used by Phillips was found with the bow stove in, and it is believed that during the storm he allowed his frail skiff to drift against the Columbias wheel. Is Securing All the Facts Ee-iatiug to the Cruel Treatment of a San Quentin Prisoner. As stated by the Mail last week, the California PhLson Commission, a philanthropic society whose mission is to help convict? to secure employment and utherwise regain their lost prestige, proposes to begin a prosecution against Warden Aguirre of the prison at San Quentin for feloniously assaulting a prisoner. The Mail told of the terrible sufterings of Evve Thompson, a colored boy who served a year for assaulting a nductor by throwing a rock at him. Because he quarreled with a fellow pris-ner, so he says, he wa? put in a strait-jacket. He nearly died during the ordeal, and it was two months before he was able to walk. His hands and arms are still crippled. Joe King, the ex-convict and reformed burglar, who is delivering lectures under the auspices of the so-iety, has written President Montgomery f the society, acquainting him with the fact that Thompson is in Stockton, and has received the following reply from Mr. Montgomery, who desires all the facts before beginning the prosecution: I received your? of yesterday and was glad 0 hear frem you. In reference to the man you write of, who is paralyzed, I wish you would get me the particulars write it down a? he tell? vou, giving h? name and number, crime for which he served and date of dle- harge. number of hours in strait-jacket, and if he was given salts or oil. offense for which ht was punished, and names of guards or 1 t i sore putting him in jacket, and if he had a htarirg before the Warden; also, get me he address in Stockton where a letter would n.aeh him. There is a man here named Jack Shannes-,cy, now out on parole, who is badly para-yztd. I hope in your future meeting? you will receive a more practical response from the people. I have no doubt but your lectures will have a good effect in molding public opinion in favor of worthy discharged prisoners. This, if nothing more, will be a great thing. Keep up courage, trust in God and do the rght. Remember that many eye? are upon you, and I know' you will walk carefully. King says the society is very much in earnest in this matter and has been trying for some time to get hold of a man whom it could use as a prosecuting witness. ALLEGED INSANE MAN. Andrew Pedroti, supposed to be in?ane, wa? brought in from Iathrop last evening by a Constable and taken to the detention hospital. Sunday night he broke into Senator Muentere house and demanded that everybody else leave, declaring that he owned the place and eterything in it. The man wa? ?o violent that it wa? found necesary to put strap? on him. Thi? morning he broke the strap? in a frmzy and another pair wa? put on him. He wa? brought before Judge Jones thi? morning and his hearing set for Wednesday. The man i? a powerful fellow, and look? like an Italian. Hi? name. al?o, would indicate that he ia a aon of Italy. Those who heard his broken, excited talk, thought him Italian-, but he finally made it understood that he wa? German, so Carl Salbach wa? called in frrm the Clerks office to interpret what he The man declared that he wa? ail right, but eaid that he had been drinking htavily for several days, and 'h's stomach had betn deranged. Salbach said the fellow used a sort of German lingo difficult to understand. CATCHING TRAMP CARS. Assesiors Deputies Began Listing Them at Noon Today. This is State and county tax day.

On March 1st the following daily colonist rales to California will be put into effect via the Southern Pacific and It? connecting lines through Ogden or El Paco: From Chicago Ftom Peoria St. Louis, New Orleans and river points: 30 00 From Omaha, Kanea? City ana other Missouri river points -5 00 These rates will be open to the public and will be in effect until April 30th. This is an exceptional opportunity for the health and home seeker, investor and tourist, and ail who have friends in the East should commu-n.eate with them promptly and advise thorn to apply to the nearest Southern Pacific agent for information and illustrated literature. Special arrangements for those desiring to make deposit here, covering tickets to be delivered in the East. J. D. FISH, Agent. Telephone main 23. ftl8tf Low Colonist Bates From the East. Press dispatches received last week indicate that the Southern Pacific had applied to the Transcontinental Paspenger Association for authority to put In low colonist rates from the East to California. The proposition did not prove acceptable to all line?, but in -view of the immense benefit which must accrue to California from eo great an influx of tourists, home seekers, health seekers and investors, the Southern Pacific took the bull by the horns and arranged with its connections to take independent action, and the rate of $25 from Omaha, Kansas City and other Miou:i river points will go into effect on March 1st for sixty days. The rate from Chicago will be $33, from St. Louis and New Orleans $3i. This acion on the part of the Southern Pacific will help all section? of California, and the opportunity ought to be seized by every member of the community to bring the advantages and attractions of our State prominently before the visitors. fe21lf John P.
