has been asleep again as usual, Spring has come
apace. The large flocks of crows, the budding
trees, the green grass, the awakening pines, the
sugar camps, (say nothing about jumping rope,
hop-scotch, baseball and other juvenile outdoor
activities) are all evidence of an early spring. In
mates of the Mess, too, have been alive to the call
of the season, proving their housewifery by en
gaging in a thorough house cleaning. And on the
very last day of the month, the March Hare be
came a nonentity while the Easter Rabbit reigned
