along all the hulls mid at the front dcor. I
but I could not Unci a pin 1 then walked
along the street all the morning looking
for pins and dead birds, but found none
In the aftern.xin I took in several of the
parks. I hunted near the seats tor pins,
and under all the trees and in the crevices
of fenct tor birds, but all in vain
Toward evening I realized how IxMieil
ilnl it I-to walk -'with an object ' but I
did not have a -ingle pin or bird to -how
for my hunt I was compelled to admit
that ii was something of a puzzle to tell
what ltecamc of them. Not. however,
that I never -ee n stray pin or a dead
sparrow I have met with a numlx-r of
jxsiple who never saw a dead goat or a
dead mule, but everyliixly has picked up n
pin. and at long intervals seen a dead
bird The puzzle is that, while -ji many
millions of pin. and bird- mu-t be gotten
away with every day. we find so few of
them By the way. I think I never saw a
