Laysan Island is two miles long by one and one-half miles broad, and at times it has been literally covered with birds.
But the work of the Evil Genius of Laysan did not stop with the slaughter of three hundred thousand birds.
At last, however, a tentacle of the feather-trade octopus reached out to Laysan.
Ever since 1891 the bird life on Laysan has been regarded as one of the wonders of the bird world.
