When Dr. Forbes first arrived t h e r e was hardly bird to be seen on the islands. For c e r t a i n reasons his investigations were delayed u n t i l late, in 1912, when he. was i n v i t e d by President Blllinghurst; to make suggestions as to the best means of Increasing the euano supply. The president placed a small motor-boat at disposal, and he visited the whole of the coast from the boundaries of Peru and Chile as f a r as the northern b o u n d a r y .

CORMORANTS AND PELICANS. There arc- about eight species of birds which are valuable i« guano pro3ucers. The most important of these Is Hou- galnvllle's cormorant, whose chief n«st- ng place Is the Chlncha Islands. On the middle one of these islands here were b r e e d i n g In the m o n t h of February pome ten m i l l i o n birds. Bitting In the closest proximity to eaoh other. This Is one of the most wonderful bird sights to be seen In the world. The going and coming of these birds is a marvelous spectacle, and the noise which they make Is hardly less remarkable. Their Instinct in finding: t h e i r nests ts also extraordinary, for t h o u g h they are constantly going and c o m i n g they never make a mistake. One bird alts on the nest while the other ip feeding, and is relieved in turn by its mate. At times the noise is Just like the sough of the sea and at others ft resembles t h e sound of a Kreat crowd, all the m e m b e r s of which are t a l k i n g at once. When they leave t h e i r nests to feed the Br-ufainville's cormorants start for their flshlng- grounds at 5 or S in the morinff and f l y in a. broad stream 20 or 30 yardB in breadth, which o f t e n continues without Interruption till 1 o'clock In the day They settle on some place where the fish is a b u n d a n t and form Immense islands on the sea a mile or lo In dl- amter Wide areas are covered by them and they sit so close together that those on the outside have to rise first into the air before the birds In the Interior are able to get enough air under their wings to admit of their rlains directly from the sea.

Chicago, July 3--Fear of black rust to the spring crop brought about a freah advance today In the price oC wheat. Whereas cool weather and sun- shin? were needed to avert the pest, dispatches from the northwest told of comparatively high temperature and of predicted u n s e t t l e d conditions. Bullish cables and a forecast of big shipments down the lakes from Duluth tended also to strengthen the market. After opening l ' s to He above last night, prices held considerable of the gain. A f t e r noon, a decided reaction took place, influenced to some extent by the fact that export bids were out of line. The m a r k e t closed steady at a range varying from %c net lower to H e advance. Somewhat larger offerings from the c o u n t r v made corn easy. There were prospects, too, of increased shipments from A r g p n t l n a . The opening which, was i 4 r off to ^f up, was followed by a m a t e r i a l decline all around. A f u r t h e r oet b a r k resulted from thd Illinois state report putting the crop condition 25 per cent higher than g. year ago. The close was nervous Tie to lc under last night. Oats weakened with corn. Selling bv commission houses was especially noticeable on the hard spots In the market. Higher prices for hogs lifted pro* visions. Demand was chiefly for ribs. ILL STREET IMS Professes to See Better, Times Coining. New York, July 8.--Wall ntreet professed to pee in recent and coming events signs of a better understanding etween the administration and ths big Business interests and took heart accordingly.

The movement otherwise was rather mixed. People's Gas, General Electric and WestimyhouB« rising 1 to 2 points, with more than 3 points gain In American tobacco.
