Time alone and re sawed ear pediments must answer the ques Fop red explain the failure.

The second Clas May be placed those who clamber up and Down for the glory of the thing to Excel and perhaps to Crow Over their stay at Home friends. These Are the tourists who a a do Mont Blanc Monte Rosa tie matterhorn the Zertler Spitz and other break neck mountains. Of course we hop that they especially the lady tourist will not break their necks but still such adventures though involving a certain amount of endurance and not a Little excitement deserve Only Seco Crary commendation when no scientific discoveries result therefrom. The real crags men who May be grouped by themselves Are the Hunters whose lives Are imperilled in the search for their daily bread. True the Chamois Hunter and the Hunters of other Mountain animals do not reach such wonderful ledges and jutting rocks As do the animals themselves nevertheless hey climb to very perilous spots to get a shot at their Quarry and to pick it up when shot. There is another kind of crags men or Cliffen however much less frequently talked of and written about namely those who capture wild fowl on the precipitous Cliffs of rugged coasts. We know comparatively Little concerning them because travellers and tourists Seldom find their Way to the scenes of their dangerous calling almost always desolate and inhospitable though Sublime in natural features. The word a a fowl Quot is rather a puzzling what u a fowl ? borne will give an foe v 1 in Chi a fowling party grit rally consists of Foar persons. Each party has at least one rope about 200 feet Long three ply ired for rope and of Strong raw cowhide prepared for the purpose it is covered with dressed sheepskin to save it from chafing against the edges of foe Rock. A Well made rope of this kind is highly valued and is even bequeathed by the owner to his successor or Given As a dowry with his daughter. A Fowler descends the face of the Cliff suspended by the rope which is held from above by two or three men. Armed with a staff or pole to one end of which is fastened a piece of hair line proceeds to search for Birds. The hair line is formed into a sort of a running noose which throws Over the head of any Bird sufficiently near and by pulling it toward him the noose tightens upon the Birds neck and secures its capture. Sometimes linked together in couples each with a rope fastened round his body the fowlers clamber along the face of the Cliff. When one to moving the other plants himself on a ledge or shelf obtains a firm foothold and holds himself in readiness for exigencies if his companion slips or stumbles unflinching steadiness and a Strong rope can alone Avert disaster. When the first Man has arrived at a Safe Landing ledge maintains a firm hold while the second follows. Some authorities state that one single Man on the top of the Cliff holds anti manages the rope by which the fowl Ler is suspended but others Assort and we think Wilh More probability that two or More Are generally employed. The coasts of Norway which Are in some places More rugged and grander in scale than May of Hose in Scotland or the hebrides exhibit the characteristics of Cliff fowling with remarkable completeness. Or. Lloyd who knew Norway better than almost any other englishman gives a graphic account of the system there pursued in his a scandinavian on some of the magnificent Cliffs two nodes of getting at the Birds and their nests arc adopted from the sea beneath if the height to be climbed is not too great from the Edge of the Cliff above in other cases. W Hen the Raen see their work fairly before them As viewed from below they approach the foot of the Cliff in a Init. A pole Twenty or Twenty four feet Long has an Iron Hook at one cad. This Hook is looped into the Strong Waistband of the Fowler a dress and is lifted amp a pushed up by men in the boat or from any ledge of Rock Flat enough to sustain them the lifting is something like that adopted by a Butcher when Hooks up a leg of Mutton in front of his shop but the Fowler aids his own ascent partly by his hands partly by a Bird Polc which carries with him. When is safely lodged on any Shaft or ledge of projecting Rock that May afford foothold a companion is hoisted up in a similar Way. The two men then tie the rope to their bodies the length of rope depending on the probable work required of it. One begins to climb up As High As can being pushed up by the flattened end of the pole held by his companion. When the Man has reached a ledge that affords him anything one.

Some knowing that Many kinds of fowl patronize the Lake and the Pond rather than the Field Anil Yard feel that the answer must make some mention of swans wild ducks Dun Birds Teal she Drakes Coots curlews Snipes Lapwing and other feathered bipeds so Well known to the Fowler of Fen countries. But besides these two groups there is one comprising these set Birds or Cliff Birds which shun the haunts of Man and has belongings. These is psst chiefly of gannets guillemots razor Bills and puffins. Luring mostly on fish they Roost near where fish can be caught and no Home pleases them better than the shaggy precipitous Wall of a sea Cliff which is sure to present numerous holes and Corners nooks and shelves where the Birds can Nestle. As the flesh of the Young Birds is eatable though of a fishy flavor and As the feathers Down and Oil can always find a Market the tres Are of considerable commercial importance. But what a life of peril is ther capture what a hard Way or earning ones daily bread i George and Peter Anderson describe the work of the sea Bird catchers at Handa an Island off the Northwest coast of Scotland opposite Scourie. On the Seaward Side of Ualat Small Island is a Cliff two Miles loaf by 600 or 700 feet in height almost perpendicular and so smooth As to offer few facilities for foothold. There Are Here and there indentations and detached columnar masses which Are known alike to the Birds and to their pursuers. On the narrow horizontal ledges of the Cliffs thousands of gannets razor Bius. Puffins guillemots and other sea fowl sit As closely together As they can be wedged while thousands of others are00 the whig during the Breeding season a which is the Best time for foe Fowler. A shot fired sets inconceivable numbers of Birds on the Wing. But some either through natural stubbornness or from some other cause Mick to Freir roosting places with the utmost Pertinacity stones and even shots failing to dislodge them. It is a common thing for the daring fowlers after much climbing up and Down to enter crevices into which we could hardly imagine mme Van Turing to take the Birds by band or collect the Large richly tinted spotted where the face 01 the Cliff is too Ope for learn or to Resemi Harmonica a a cent enl Aav Bodt but if Fon Nair.

The nestling season usually lasts from foe Middle of May to the Middle of August and it is Only at such taif that the sea Birds congregate there in any considerable number.

Is the sea fowling at St Kilda. Indeed an Ordinary Landsman can with difficulty conceive How the work can be carried on. St. Kilda is a homely Island eighty Miles out Westward beyond Sowis and Harria two of the hebrides. Strangers Seldom approach Fop Wadi Island itto Only three Miles Long by two in breadth except by an occasional Steamer or government caller but fishermen from Harris venture thither in open to orgy one Landing place and Foto to very do in of mris there of foe Cote to a ragged Cliff from 806 to 1,000 or More fee tin height.

And so they proceed no. 2 pushing up no. 1, and then no. I pulling or drawing up no. 2. The Bird pole having a Hook at one end and a flattish top the other is invaluable on those occasions. When the two men reach a height at which the bards can met with one plants himself As firmly As possible on a ledge to act As a stay or Check while the other Gross with hands Aad Hook to capture the Birds. It the latter slips the former Bolus him up by the sheer resistance of the to which binds the two together. Alas both of them if there be any weakness of muscle or of nerve at this moment the Birds not expecting to be disturbed so High up the face of the Cliff Are comparatively tame and Are captured without resistance a Knock on the head seals their Fate prior to living heaved out into the sea and nicked up by the attendant boat. To avoid being struck by a tailing Bird requires very great caution on the part of the Boatmen who accordingly give the Rock a pretty wide berth until the crags men ceasing their labors for awhile permit the floating Birds to be gathered.

If the weather be Fine the Fow lers will remain several Days and nights together up aloft when they can Fina ledge Broad enough to sleep on or recesses into which Thev can creep food and other necessaries can be Khaled up by them from below a hard Way of earning a living truly. In bygone times there was a Law in Norway strikingly illustrative of foe dangers of Foto employment. When a Fowler was killed by falling from the Scarp of these terrible Cliffs his nearest relative Wras required to attempt the same venture. If be succeeded Christian burial was allowed to the body of the deceased but if be could not or would not make the attempt it was concluded that death had been caused by recklessness or want of judgment. The deceased was declared to have been the canse of i own death and his Corpse was awarded the unchristian interment of a suicide. This strange Law has not been acted upon in recent times., when foe Cliff is too High to be reached from the water foe fearless crags men of Norway commence their operations from above.

If one canned be a Lover oneself tire next Best thing to to make love on somebody toes account. At least so seem to think a Large number of person who Are never so Nappy As when they Are up to their Nocks in Mattes matrimonial and things pertaining thereto. These sympathetic souls Are firmly convinced that they have been born into the world few promoting marriages and love making and they Are consequently continually laying traps for the unwary. If you Are a gentleman who has not yet succumbed to tire fascinations of some charming Young lady to the extent of putting your head through foe noose of Wedlock you May soon learn How very kind these Beneficent brings can be and How energetically they can work on their behalf. Of course it re assumed that you ought to get married and that Yoa would do so if you could Frily get the Chance. This much being taken for granted it la considered that it will Only be an act of kindness to hurry you on to Bliss somewhat quicker indeed than you seem inclined to go. You Are told that you ought to do As your dear charitable friends desire and it is not very Long before a Host of excellent and fascinating Young ladies Are picked out for you to choose from it is no strange thing for you not to know your own mind in reference to the Sweet creatures perhaps indeed you Are in such a helpless state that you signally fail to dream or think of anyone in particular. Your Good Angels have therefore no option but to make a Choice for you. Having resolved to do so it is not very Long before they Mark out a definite course for themselves to pursue. They have seen you speak to miss Brown and look absent minded As you Shook her hand and this is regarded As proof conclusive that you Are in love though As a matter of fact you looked absent minded because you had suddenly remembered that your tailor had sent you a impertinent letter in re a certain Little account and that you had forgotten to answer it As you had intended to do. However it having been settled that you have lost your heart to miss Brown and it having also been settled that the dear girl Only needs to be asked to Tell you that Ahe is yours forever and it having further been decided that the pair of you Are eminently suited for each other a series of Clever strategic Maneu vers Are executed. You and miss Brown in the first place Are taken tinder the Wing of those who Are constituting themselves the presiding spirits of your destiny. These spirits Are generally feminine ones and often have House of their own and husbands the latter of whom they succeed in making unwilling parties to their plots. One Day you receive an invitation to visit mrs. Matrimony at her House and to your astonishment you discover miss Brown. This is but the beginning however. In due course you find yourself sitting by the beguiled a quite by Accident you innocently imagine and by and by to you Falls foe delightful task of pioneering her to supper or of turning Over her my sic As she sings some love song. Meanwhile i our movements Are scrutinized with foe Ernest interest and your conduct excites no Small amount of criticism you would no doubt be astonished to learn Bow guilty and love stricken you look. After a few moves of this sort the affair is regarded As settled. When mrs. Matrimony takes leave of you she smiles and Smirti in an awfully profound manner fan King believe that she knows everything and could Tell a great Deal of site Only chose to do to. Then she makes insinuations in foe presence of you and miss Brown which cause the pair of a you to Blush and look uncommonly stupid at which her Delight reaches a crowning pitch. No doubt she will Call you a sly log and miss Brown a deep one at any rate by implications and there is no doubt also that she will More than once go to foe trouble of confidentially informing you what a dear Good virtuous amiable lad Dike girl miss Brown is and what a Nice Little Fortune she will have. Besides a 1 this she spreads reports abroad to the effect that it is Only a question of time As to when you will finally bring the matter to a head and she does her Best to hasten your movements by lying in of it for you at the churches at Heaters at parties at bazaars at soirees on promenade and in foe streets with miss Brown at her heels. She would be very angry with you it she imagined that you would have the audacity to choose a wife for yourself in spite of her selection. Of course you often fall a Vic Tim to her Wiles but when you do so you do not choose to Tomk that your wife has been chosen for you and that she has practically been courted by proxy that. In a word the match has been brought about by Clever schemers in whose hands you have been As plastic As Putty. Often however you do not marry miss Brown but carry into effect your preference for miss Green then there is a storm in which Yea suffer. Yoa have acted very badly cries one they never thought that you could be guilty of such conduct say ethers and so it comes about that you Are considered a Black sheep whom it is dangerous for unsuspecting and innocent Maidens to approach.
