M E L V I N , STEELE A. JOHNSON, EDITORS A N D P R O P R I E T O R S . SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 15 AT HOME. (A r.eply to Burdctto'3 "Since She \Ven1 Home.") Where has slio gone-No evening shadows linger cold and gray. No winds of winter chUl the summer day, A fadeless springtime blooms upon the way Where she hath gone. Where she hath gone-No wailing note awakctli sign or inonn. The old slud songs take up a gladder tone, TThcre's'laughter sweeter tar than we have known. Where she hath gone. Where she hatli gone-Her saintly presence blesses mansions fatr Glory gleams about the head so dear, And l.hy poor heart will find its rest there. Where slio hath gone. Wliere she hath fjone-- Time .doth not mark In days its golden flight. Tho sun Is dimmed by Heaven's greater light, And there are never tears nor lonely night Where she hath gone. Where she hath gone-Thou, too, some day, will go If God so will, .And while transcendent raptures thro' thco thrill, Thy souls shall meet, redeemed, yet loving still, Whero slio hath gone. --Lila T. Dews, In Atlanta Constitution. BE'ER BUZZARD." nl r HARRY BALL.. F ALL the birds that fly, "Er'ev Buzzard" is the ugliest juicl the lenst c n g a g \ n g. He might be calles! the skeleton in the closet of the bird world. We don't like to say anything* Tnore about him than we can luslp. Ho isn'ta pleiis- nnt subject. Tlie poor fellow seems to be aware Of liis own humble sphere In feathered society, too, and his manners are modest and deprecating. He n:aUes no noise in the workl. His de meanor, whenever he walks nbrond, \a shrinking 1 and sad, as if lie \vns conscious of his own clumsy movements -and the disagreeable ideas his presence sngg-osts. But he is not'altogether un- 'apprecinted, depressing as lie is; and of him may be suid, -with truth, that he docs no inj-ary to any living creature, He lives his harmless life nntl does his grcwsome duty. What more need be said of anybody? Mankind may not love or admire Br'er Uvizzard, but they are, forced to accord him respect and. protection. The mau ·who kills him breaks the law and offends his fellow men. Entthcrearemonyinterestingthings about this undertaker in feathers that have never - been described, probably because the general tendency has always been to let liim alone; and of all the larger birds of this country there is not one which is less intimately known, than this. lie can be seen on almost any day in the southern states, soaring high in the blue sky or dashing slantwise in wind and storm, a majestic and graceful object. This is as near as most people care to see him. ' In his home life he is, it must be acknowledged, a mean nnd unpleasant creature; and.yet, even there, he is not without interest to the lover of all things which infinite wisdom has placed upon the earth. Two species- of this vulture, improperly called buzzard, inhabit the United States east of the !Kocky mountains, one of which ranges from New England to the Gulf of Mexico. nnd is familiarly known as the turkey buxzard. His scientific name is Cathartes Aura, and he is a very different individual from his humbler cousin, whose closer acquaintance we arc now making. The turkey buzzard is n somewhat larger bird than the black vulture, and is not black in color, but- a mixture of bhick'and reddish brown, the latter ·being the prevailing color in his plumage. His beak, feet nnd head, where the skin is bare, are of a bright red color, and he is mueh less grotesquely repulsive in appearance than the black vulture of the south. He also moves, when on the ground. ·with a. sort of dignified deliberation very different from the clumsy hopping and "teetering" stride of his black cousin. The latter -- Catharista Atrata, the. scientists call him -- is the common scavenger of the far south, where la becomes as familiar almost as 1 the chickens in the small towns, when cold weather or scarcity of food drives him from the woods and fields to (he hm:nts of men. He has absolutely no redeeming feature of personal appeara^x-p. Except when sailing high, in air, he is a dejected, wretched, hopeless nud revo!;. ing object. His color is sooty black, e: cept the tips of the wings, which are ot a \lingy. grayish white, this color being visible only tvhen the wings are expanded. His bealc, head and bare. wrinkled neck arc dull black, and his whole aspect nnd demeanor is ludicrously appropriate to his ghastly calling. He is a bird of the s-emi-tropics, ucd Uin but ill endure the degree of cold wUch is often felt in tlie Gnlf states in Jawuary. At such times he resorts to the towns, nnc! can often be seen on the housetops, ·irovichcy.1 close against a smoking cliiKi- npy, where sometimes a. haJf dozen ·A-ill push and struggle together for the '.varmest place. \V-hen hunger [sresscs, he will descend into the backyard and walk about in his dejected, clumsy way, disputing with tlie chickens for whal' ever scraps may be thrown out. \Thpn he drops down from on high among these chickens, there is a mighty flutter nnd consternation; but they soon learn, to treat him w i t h the tontempfuous indifference to which he is accustomed, and the haughty rooster ur quarrelsome old hen will not hesi- t a t e to knock him heels over head, if he comes between the wind and their nobility. He Is n very uncomplaining bird. He 'ops not inalte nsy outcry. TTe ·prcads his great ·wings'and soars far .beyond the reach of his petty enemies, He meets with the same tcornful tyranny from tlie turkey buzzard. It is an odd sight to see oae of the latter swoop down upon a flock of the black vultures as they oire gathered about a dead chicken or other animal. All the black ones scramble out of the way, hopping, fiapping and making their hoarse hissing sound -- their only note -- nnd range themselves nt a safe- distance, where they wait- patiently until their big cousin chooses to take- in's departure. The two species are often found together, but there is evidently a gulf between them, and: the blacks never forget their humble and respectful demeanor in the presence of Ca- thartes Aura. Along the lower Mississippi river, in JlissLsippi and Louisiana, all the pmnll town* are protected from inundation by high'cartlrwor'ks or Icvres, and"the space between the levee antl the river, called the bntturc, is a sort of no-man's land. Here garbage and refuse of ul! } kinds is thrown, n n t t the floating houses . of the fishermen are mooted. | Such places arc the chosen home of Br'cr Buzzard. No one uvur dreams of moles ting him. No one ever cares to conic near enough to frighten or disturb him, and the l i f u of plenty and eiise makes him la ay and stupid. All day long he sits on some tall cotlonwood tree, drawn up and dejected, if the wcathev be clovicly or cold, or standing- w i t l i w i n g s wide extended, to ciituh the suiu- iisriit if the day is fine. This singular a t t i t u d e , w i t h wings spread to their n'.- niost extent, is a favorite w i t h both Aura and Atrata, and they seem to be able to maintain it for hours without fiitigne. \Vhen the fishermen come in w i t h their loaded bonts the vultures descend, and crowd about the rafts where the fish arc assorted, wniting until the dead or worthless ones are cast aside. A favorite morsel is the head of t h e grent river catfish, which is always cut oft' before, the fish is offered for Mile. The fishermen, like everybody else, recognise the utility of the vultures, and encourage them until they become almost like pets; and it is ludicrous to see four or five of them seize a fish head r.nd pnli like boys nt the old-fashioned game of French nnd English, Hupping, hissing and tumbling about the ground In their efforts to drag the coveted morsel away from eoch other. In the midst of the ignoble struggle down swoops Cathartes Aura into the melee. The blank fellows fall over eao! other in their efforts to get out of his lordship's way, nnd he calmly sails on" with the prize in his beak. No doubt it \.ill surprise many read- TREAT HIM WITH INDIFFERENCE. ers, and probably create a diversion of sentiment in favor of this bird of ill omen, to learn that he loves to be clean, and will even brave immersion in the cold water of the Mississippi river in order to effect it. On a warm and sunny day a large flock of the black vultures will assemble on a shelving, snndy bank or a heap of driftwood, apparently for the express purpose of doing vhat the negroes who live along the batture call "washing their clothes." One by one they drop down out of the sky at the meeting-place, each new arrival taking up a position, and keeping it in decorous and dejected, silence. They usually select a spot nt which there is a, partially sunken log, and after n large number are assembled, one of the company will march gravely out on the half-submerged log, while the others sit motionless in their places. When the bather reaches the water, it is funny to watch him. As his feet touch it he raises himself on tiptoe, and stops gingerly, shuddering at the cold contact; but he wades bravely in, and as he goes deeper and deeper his feathers rise on end, nnd he looks a picture of comic distress. . lie means business, however, and keeps resolutely on, until he U completely submerged, except his head. Then he washes himself, precisely as a duck does, Hupping his wings, rubbing and ruffling himself, and dancing up nnd down in the water until his feathers are thoroughly saturated. This accomplished, he marches sadly out a much more distressful object than ever, shakes himself, like a dog, and "hangs himself up to dvy" by spreading his great wings in the sunlight a,ud standing like a statue for perhaps an. hour, \\bilc his brethren each go through thu b-ame performance, one'by one, until the whole company axe standing with outspread wings iu the hot sun. This singular spectacle is a familial- one in the haunts of the black vulture, nnd, next to his great utility in removing noxious substances from the earth. 5s the' strongest argument I can find to recommend him to the esteem of mankind.--Golden Days. The Rosettes on the Bridles. TLe bridle of pretty much every biirness has upon it rosettes, more or less ornamental, one on each sido, placed nt the ends of the front, or brow, Imiicl. These rosettes are made in very great variety. Some are made of tin, some of German silver, and some of German silver covered with a thin sheet of silver. Some rosettes are plain, some are embossed. Tbey sell at prices ranging from practically nothing to $2 a pair. Rosettes of this kind are often engraved with the monogram or with initials. Engraved rosettes are not infrequently seen on business harness. There are costlier rosettes that are used on carriage harness only and are made some of leather and some of Bilk ribbon. These are made by hand iu various si?,es and of various colors and combinations of colors. Handsome rosettes of leather sell at $2.50 to $o .n pnir, tlopfiidiiig upon the size; the ribbon rosettes at from $5 to §10 a. pair. Hosettes of this kind are not sold with the harness. They aro bought separately as orna- mejits. Bibhon rosettes costing $10 n pair might, for instance, be bought to attach to the bridles of a fine double harness costing, say, $-100 a set. --New yoi-k Sun. Fun nt Court. Ono of the criminal court rooms in city hall consists of three rooms in telescopic succession, with a door lending from one to the other. Jurymen sit in the front room, but parties and witnesses are sent to the back room till called. A juryman named O'Brien was sitting in the front rconi when a tipstaff went up to him and asked him if he was n juryman. Misunderstanding tho word juryman for German, he said, "No; I am am Irishman," and was told to go intoi the back room. The crier of the' court called him several times during the day, but he didn't hear the' call, and when told he was in default he told the above story as his excuse.--Philadelphia Record.
