lie had some three-ecent cigars, arid it
wasn't long before lie made such a good
improsion that Bijah lent lim six dol

about ten o'clock, drunk as a sea cap

I found it essential to success ini rear
Ing birds from the nest to watch the
parent bird and find what food it select
ed for its young. rhat of all the finches,
sparrows and wrens was -naked-skinned
worms and graeshopoiers. The indigo
finch, which I at fIrst failed to rear, I
found was fed soluly with white grass
hoppers (I. e., with grasshoppers which
had just molted), after. which I found
it very easy to raise, ahd that it proved
to be a very exeollenticage-bird. All
the birds fed readily ulpoii bmall grass
hoppers and large-sized worms, anr in
every case died after being fully grown,
from my inability to make' the proper
change in thef'r food. ' The finches and
sparrows. would take to seed-eating as
soon as they left the nest and their bills
were hardened. Wrens, unddr my ob
servAtioh, fed theli yOung almost exclu
sively with small, smooth larvw, taken
from the undersides of the leaves of cur
rant bushes, brambles, etc., and I have
set for a long time aid counted the
worms brought to a nest, the average
being flive worms in two minutes. This
was a iiest of the common house wren,
when the supply of food was abundant
in a neighboring row of currant bushes.
These also were easily reared in the nest.
All the young birds took naturally to
water when fully grown, except the
ground or grass flnch, which would
bathe only in fine sand, but would keel
itself in excellent condition and. was a
very ii.teresting cage-bird. The com
mon rice-bird or bobolink was very eaa.
ily raised, fed on young grasshoppers,
took to eating seed readily, became at
tame and playful as a kitten, and who
full grown was liable'to becothe extesa.
ively fat, and would then often have
epileptic fits, recurring at frequent in
tervals, death always following.' Tih
cat bird was an inveterate mimic, at
tempting to do and sing whatever I
saw or heard done by the other birds
in its compartment' of the cage.' The
wren was a thorough busybody an(
studious of nature, Investigating witi
a very knowing and Inquiring lool
every corner and crevice of the cagc
and every act, (i' Its associates. A paih
of blue buds kept themselves inviolatU
from all the other birds, and were mod

each other. They selected a plac<
where the pair could perch themqelve
closely together, and 'apent a .%# go par
