Wooing the Birds ]s
The Audubon society tells you how g
to make friends with your small t(
neighbors of the air. 1 c
Can you tell the difference be
tween chickadees, nuthatches, jun-!t<
v cos, tree sparrows, downy woodpeck- ti
ers, blue-jays and cardinals? tl
Here's a good way to get acquaint- ]?
ed with these birds: Tie a piece of p
beef suet to a tree. Then sprinkle
j seeds and crumbs about the yard. Or p
if you want to bring the winter birds r<
closer, place a feeding shelf on your p
window ledge and they will hop right tl
before vour eves. Thev will soon be*
come acquainted with you and you s)
will have more friends. j ?
Be sure to tie up the cat.
Hints to Bird House Builders
There are certain well defined '
rules which should be followed in
bird "bungalow" building. Here is
J what one builder has learned by long ^
pxDerience. "Wrens and bluebirds ^
require houses carefully designed to 1
* meet their requirements, if the build- a
er is to retain them as tenants. These e
birds never raise a second brood in ^
the same nest. Wrens raise two ^
broods each year; blue birds two and ^
often three. If a single compartment p
? house is provided you are liable to,c
lose your tenants before the summer,0
is over. The wren and blue bird ,
houses have different sized holes, the j ^
wrens requiring a smaller hole than j
the blue bird. Swinging houses are j
good for these birds .because the Eng-.
lish sparrow will not occupw a swing- ^
ing house.'' (From the Cypress Bird ^
Book). Anyone who is interested in
building bird houses may obtain this; ^
book free from the Southern Cvpress. *]

ESKIMO PIE HAS
Eskimo Pie, or chocolate coated
ice cream has come to town. The
confcction is new in Newberry and
everywhere else for that matter, for
it is the recent invention of Christian
K. Nelson of Chicago.
Nelson went to Chicago from Omaha
fifteen months ago with 19 cents
in his pocket.
Today the 19 cents has grown to
a steadily increasing fortune of six
figures. It'll be well over a million

What did it?
Nelson's idea was to cover a square
of cold ice cream with a layer of hot
chocolate, thus making a confection
with real ice cream inside.
He got that idea while he was mannrr;r?rr
his father's ice cream plant out
in Omaha, la. And he furthered it
while he was studying chemistry at
When he was graduated he peddled
the idea around from ice cream
factory to ice cream factory. Everybody
laughed at him.
"Cover cold ice cream with hot
chocolate? Man, you're crazy," they'd
say. r 'J
