    Trophy Points:

    If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 8
    Feet and Is entirely open at the top, the
    Bird, in spite of its Ability to fly, will
    Be an absolute prisoner. The reason is
    That a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground
    With a Run of 10 to 12 feet. Without space
    To run, as is its habit, It will not even
    Attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner
    For life in a small jail with no top.

    THE BAT:

    The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a
    Remarkable nimble creature in the air,
    Cannot take off from a level place.
    If it is placed on the floor or flat
    Ground, all it can do is shuffle about
    Helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it
    Reaches some slight elevation from which it can
    Throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it
    Takes off like a flash.

    A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler, will
    Be there until it dies, unless it is taken out.
    It never sees the means of escape at the
    Top, but persists in trying to find some way out
    Through the sides near the bottom.. It
    Will seek a way where none exists, until it
    Completely destroys itself..
