"The Pigeon Lady
This is Atlanta's "pigeon lady."
Doves and pigeons seem to accept
lier as their particular mistress. Even
strange ones she has never seen be
fore will come to her call.
Theso photographs were made at a
time -when she was illustrating the
unusual power she has,over her little
friends of tho air.
The "pigeon lady" is Miss Helen
Jone?/ age 18 years, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. W. I. Jones of 128 Lafay
ette Drive, Ansley park. The pigeons
are (prize "rollers*-' owned by Forest?
Adair of.. Druid Hills.
Until last week, the "pigeon lady*
and Mr. Adair's, pets had never secu
each other. It is true that the "roll
iers" had been tamed by kindness
' and would fly near their master. nut
they were timid of strangers. They
.won't go near other visitors. But
when the little "pigeon lady" called
to them, they swooped down and
perched on her shoulders,'on her hair,
and covered the ground at her feet. It
. was as though she had beckoned to
the white olcuds, and a torn patch
with dots- and dashes of color had
whirled softly down.
The one that perched on top of her
hair was like tho figure piece of a
helmet. Another, resting on *>her
shoulder, seemed trained, for picture
poking. A third, his little claw feet
on her wrist, reached out Tor the
grain of Corn she held -between ber'

At the same time the German au

contributions which could not easily
