Approaching stealthily, 1 discovered twoeinms-y gopher coinbatanls, i engaged in a strange wrestling match near the entrance of n burrow. The hole was evidently the home of the largest turtle, as the entrance of their burrows are always barely of the dimensions necessary to ^dmit the proprietor, varying from six inches to a. foot in width. That the small gopher, which was about, one-fourth Uie size of his full-grov.-n antagonist, v.-as a trespasser, and that the latter w;is trying to drive him off, was seen, at n glance. The contest was verj' spirited, considering the build of the fighters. Facing each other, they would butt wi'.b the shovel-like projection upon the front of the plastron or lower shell, which Ordin.T.-ily aids them in burrowing-, using this in concert with their powerful blunt claws. In moments of great exertion thoy rose together like two locomoti ves colliding "head on" and the smaller gopher was generally tumbled over on his back. The big one would continue to butt .him while 1 he struggled with one forefoot to push himself towards some bush that would help him to turn over again. The neck of the gopher is too short to turn him over by means of his head when be is upset, and if left on a. smooth place where he cannot push his back tip against some brace he wjJJ remain inverted and die 5n a few hours. The other flipper of the fallen gladiator meantime trembled piteously in tie air, and the larger gopher bit at it viciously. It'Was not long before the smaller tortoise regained his equilibrium, aided often by the assaults of his opponent. Then, after sulking for a moment, he would cnter^iuto the fray again with a rush that would force his heavier opponent backwards through tie grass and bushes -for nearly a yard. The incessant thuds and tiie rustling of the herbage, made an unwonted commoticn n the uoiisHul quiet of such surround- ngs. This seemingly tireless contention continued in my presence f*r over half ah hour. The gophers, in their absorption, took no notice of me as I stood mo- ionless about ten'feet from them. The sun wns high and hot, and other gophers iiifl no doubt gone underground for the day. At last (.he large tortoise succeeded n rushing his enemy several yartfs iway from, the burrow. The latt™r hen turned and ron, the big fellow pur- ulng and showering blows mercilessly upon his rea-r. This ignominy was too much for the spirit of the invader, and he" made a fresh stand for several minutes. This occurred several times :n thi? course of his retreat, but at last he scuttled away at comical speed, with the enemy still pursuing. The latter was not contented until the intruder hod taken himself about 35 yards fro-m he burrow. Having seen him so far, '.lie victor turned about, and, with a. good round gait, made for his hole and went into it. I then turned my attention to the retreating 1 gopher, and discovered him again "by his rustling progress through the herbage. In his haste he tried to climb_over a log, which in calmer mood !ie would have certainly traveled around. He fell over on hisbackand lostteiimin- utes trying to turn overngnin. He lien went around the tree. Before he reached-his hole, some 30 yards furthf.r, lie'stoppcd e^cr and :.'non to cut off some uicculeht shcot, which slipped into his month easily, cut end first. His break- fnst that' 'morning must have been scanty, but he was anxious to reach home.—:'. Y. Post. A blgb standard'of exceliwuw.
