Oh. he admired himself Immensely,
lie put his head on one side and then on

and sti etched his neck and pruned and
teetered on his tlnv feet.
"Win. the vain thlnt;!" I thought.
"Robert, t'm surprised nt you," Dut
Robert tiptoed closer to the mirror; he
chirped and nodded. "Why." T thought,
"he Isn't vain, he's lonesome." And so
ho was. poor thing lust lonesome, that's
all. And ho thought the bird in the
Jiilnor was someliodv that might turn
out to be a friend, and he wanted to
make a good impression, that was all.
The Birch Bark Adventure..
Robert didn't care for the pennants on
the wall or for the bookB on the book
ehclf. He was really a bit bored, and
bepan to look around for his case, when
suddenly something attracted his at
tention. You could fairly are him get a new
Impression. He put his head on ono
nidc, listened, chirped and flew straight
to a little pleturo framed In birch bark
which hung upon the wall.
Ho was as excited when he found
that birch bark us one of us would bo

face to face, tho ghost of an old, old
friend wo'd heard of for years and never

Flaring, chirruping, warbling, trilling

and sang and swelled his little throat.
and pecked tho bark and flew round and'
1-ound tho frame, and the only way we
could get him back Into the little cagei
that had been his homo ever since he
could remember anything was to take
tho birch bark picture frame and put it
there before him.
Wasn't that queer? I don't belleo
)ie'd ever seen a bit of naturul bark bo
fore in his life, and I know he'd nover
heard of it.
