I . r*. - TH* sequestered ponds of Ihe mountain hatch ery attract the. ducks, which are wont to settle 'town on Ihe limpid sheets of wa ter. A few of them have mail* their homes there. They are the wood duck, and round the grassy edges of the pools have laid Ihelr eggs In well-hidden nests. The hatchery men. whose eyes are train ed hy the study of flsh eggs and lltfia fish to notice things minute, soon discov ered the presence of the duck eggs and began a quiet watch for Ihe hatching One day recently two egg shells wees found broken In a nest and at the edge of Ihe water sat two downy ducklings near the mother duck. Quietly the de lighted discoverers irpproa.4ie<l nrmrrr tor s better va w. A bunch of reeds Mfllf wsvlng In the soft breese shielded them In Ihelr effort for s few moments, but an unlti ’ky footstep Into the shallow wa ter caused an atnrmlng splash With a quick whirr of her wings up rose tho mother before the eyes of the startled men and slowly settling near by she In vited all danger to herself But the hatchery men were not hunters snd were not looking tor her. Hastily they stepped forward, ankle deep In water, and beheld, huddled to gether close to the reeds, the apprehen sive ducklings. Wondering how well they could swim after half s day's existence, one of the visitors sploshed the water sharply with hts foot Away from tha protecting shore sped the two tiny ducka over the transparent water. Their watc hed fret soon parried them a dosen yanks from the big two-footed Intruders. Down In th* depth ot the pool lurk aomtt huge trout, whoae keen eyeo are over watching Ihe surface for grasshoppers, minnows and food of alt kinds. Rainbows, they are. and os the ducklings scudded across the top of the pool the beautifully colored aides of the trout flashed brilliant ly as they rose In haste from the bottom. The first one dashed so recklessly at tbs nearest ducking Ihat ho mlesed his a Ira and shot a yard oul of the water Thera was a loud splash as the Mg flsh fell back and thoroughly scared, soft-feathered birds began to paddle desperately for the shore. But fate was against them, and they ware not permitted lo swim >ix feet. Too lata the man realised the danger of the tiny fowls. In another moment a slower but surer flsh opened B wide mouth st the right moment amt eagerly swallow ed one of the two feathered fuglttvao.

Down Into the crystal depths went tha duckling and after an Instant's choking sll was still. The circles cat Ihe top of the pool Widened until Invtalblo and the trag dy was over. The mother duck, whose eyes had never left her young darted above the spot where they had disappeared, with shrill cries, and utterly disregarded Ihe pee senes Of tne men. who. slowly retracing tholr footstep- told anew yam a> Ihe dinner laid- to the surprise and regret of the others, v.ho ha-1 also been watching for the appearance of the little ducks.
