On they advanced, the movement raising no suspicion in the breasts of their adversaries, it Deing part of the customary ritual of the war dance, tintil the thin end of the phalanx overlapped the Mania, and stood between them and the gates of the pa. Suddenly a change was visible in the antics of the Ngatiroa. Their gesticulations became violent, their eyes protruded, their heads were thrown back, and their throats uttered a mighty shout. As the cry passed their lips a stream of warriors rushed up the banks of the gully and joined the cluster of their comrades, now swollen to a compact mass of 600 men. When the Mania realized the ruse practiced upon them they never for a moment thought of giving up the fair cause of the incursion without a struggle. Into the pa poured both parties—the Mania to rally round the girl; the Ngatiroa, except the small party expressly told off to carry away the lady, seeking every man an opponent to wrestle with. Each party was anxious to avoid bloodshed, both be Before going to the circus, fair, Campmeeting, or anywhere else, call at D. R. CROWEL'S ing "Tribes of the River." The uproar was therefore greater than had they been engaged in actual warfare, it being more difficult to master a mnn by strength of muscle than to knock a hole through him. At length superior numbers prevailed. Those who fought around the lady were dragged away. She was roughly seized, and such a tugging and hauling ensued that, had she not been to the manner born, she must have been rent in pieces. At last but one young man, a, secret admirer of the lady, retained his hold. Au active young fellow, he had so twisted his hands and arms into the girl's hair, and fought so vigorously with his legs, that he could not be removed until he was knocked down senseless. The contest ended, and the bride being borne in triumph to the canoes, both parties proceeded to pick up their weapons and smooth their feathers.

The buzzard's wonderful sense of smell is a curious subject that has often been discussed, the discussion of the matter having resulted in a general uniformity of opinion, among scientists that they locate their food by their sense of smell alone. C. L. Hopkins, the noted biologist, says that he has noticed that in Florida they never leave the roots where the night is spent, especially on damp, foggy mornings, until the moisture has been dried by the sun. TJhey then move slowly across the wind until a "scent" is struck, when they move more slowly "up the wind" until the carrion is located. Sometimes they will drift down the wind past their prey, until they have struck the scent, which they follow up until they have found the object of their search, sometimes in the densest thickets.
