row-hawk. Similar to young Accipiter rufitorques of Eiji Islands. Hab. Hawaii, rare on the rest of the group. Preys on small birds, chickens and mice, and probably larger animals, as the followingincident would suggest Here follows an incredible story, describing how one such bird circled over a dog, flewto a pile of stones and took one in its claws, flew back to its old position over the dog as ifintending to drop it on to the dog, but finally carried it back and placed it on the pile whereit had taken it from. Mr. Dole believes that this manoeuvre would seem to show that thebird was accustomed to use stones in this way for killing its prey or its enemies. The author then adds: I suggest the above name for this bird.

Palmer did not procure a specimen, but he says that he saw it twice. 2k

Thecook and steward stood by meanwhile holdingtheir sides for laughter at the success of the ex-pedient. * What do you stand there for, ex-claimed Jack, like a couple of grinning mon-keys, as ye are ? Come, Doctor Sambrino Snow-ball, bear a hand, my beauty, and get your penopen, if you want your pig housed. Ay, ay, ^lassa Jack—dat I do rightquick, I shure you. And cook and stewardboth ran to obey. As soon as Jack found thecoast clear, he slackened somewhat of his ownefforts, so as to allow the animal to quicken hispace, till he came to the door of the pen; andthen, by pulling him the way he did not wishhim to go, he made the contrary brute turn him-self in.
