Birds in the White House Grounds.
Blackbirds, robins, thrashes, blue
birds and crows make their homes in
the White House- grounds, together
with other varieties. Nearly all the
year round robins may be seen in the
grounds, and tlfey have their nests
somewhere abouts. They Bly about
the front of the grounds and hunt
among the flowers and plants for
worms. They do not bathe them
serves like the sparrows. They are
comparatively tame, as no one bothers
them. These few robins bave been
in the grounds for years. They do
not go far North, like the others of
their tribe, in the summer months.
The Washington climate suits them.
In the winter they disappear for a
trip to the winter resorts in the
South, but come back in the early
spring. The blackbirds seen in the
grounds are big tellows, half as big e-s
crows and just as glossy black.
A new woman's club is t:, be started
in Lndont to which no one under six
