*■ The Visiting o
J Mother Danbun
j ! By PAUL LAURENCE DUNBA
fe tCopyiiglit, by J. B. Lippincott Co.)
| In the small village everybody I
* interested in everybody's elso doing
| —not always with a malicious coi
cern, as some would have us bellevt
S For among primitive folk there ma
he kindly prying, and gossip is somt
', times gentle.
| There was no lack of this villag
* meddling, if meddling it might b
t called, when Felix Danbury, he wh
was son of the Widow Danbury an.
•j chorister at Cory church, led Marth,
f, Dickson to the altar.
j> There was some sorrow, too, in al
this interest, for the marriage of Fe
i lix meant his loss to the community
3 Martha lived at Baldwin's Ford, am
| thither her bethrothed had promise!
; to go and take up his abode. TJsuall;
t the woman follows the man, but ii
• this instance old Mrs. Dickson, wh<
" was also a widow, had protested s<
| loud and long against separation fron
} her only child that the lover wai
9, compelled to assure her that sh<
i would gain a son rather than lose i
J daughter. It was very noble indeed
't and there had been a beautiful seen*
! in which old Mrs. Dickson had wepl
» on Felix's shoulder and blessed him
| "You're a good boy," she told him
J "I know that the folks air a-goin' tc
I say that you're desertin' yore mother
/ hut 'taint so; she'll come over here
J a-visitin', an' we'll go over there, an'
j it'll be Just like one family; an' be
i sides, yore mother wouldn't be lonely
j like me, for she's got Mellssy."
"Melissy" was Felix's married sis
j ter, and on his marriage it was with
j her that his mother went to live,
i There were those who came to con
! dole with Mother Danbury upon the
j loss of her son, but she was very
; brave, and they had their trouble for
I their pay.
"No, no," she would say, rocking
I complacently, "a man ought to have
' a wife, an' ef he can't git her to come
I to him, he's got to go to her. I don't
: blame Widder Dickson now a bit
about Marthy. 'Taint like me, that's
i blessed with two children to be the
• support of my declinin' years."
"But why couldn't she 'a' come over
here?" her gossips protested.
" 'Twouldn't 'a' been fair to ask
her that; for she'd 'a' had to tore
up root an' branch, while I ain't got
nothin' to do scarcely but to slip out
o' my house into Melissy's. An' then
it ain't as ef Felix was gone fur good.
You see Baldwin's Ford ain't fur
away, an' I kin run over an' drop In
on 'em almost anytime."
And so, placidly, the old lady went
on with her knitting day by day, look
ing under and over her glasses as
often as through them as she paused
for little chats with the neighbors or
to murmur gentle admonition to Me
lissy's children.
Outwardly she was calm, but her
soul longed for a sight of this son,
whose form had gladdened her eyes
every evening as he returned from
work, and the honeymoon was hardly
over before she had "dropped over"
to spend a day with her two dear
children.
The day was a joyous one for her—
for them all. Felix was radiant, his
wife shyly happy, and the Widow
Dickson brought out and spread for
her visitor the best that her larder
afforded.
This was the first of a series of
such visits made at short intervals,
and sometimes of a Sunday returned
by all the family from Baldwin's
Ford. At such times Cory's church
heard Felix's voice again, and it re
joiced, too, that he was not entirely
lost to its service.
The village looked on at the pretty
romance and smiled because there
had been so many to prophecy that
it could not be. The tongues of
gossip had been wagging pretty free
ly. Some had said that Mother Dan
bury would never go to Baldwin's
Ford; others that the Baldwin's Ford
ists would never return the visit. One
side held that Felix would forget his
mother in a month, and the others,
with equal assurance, gave Martha a
little more than that time to leave
her native town, and both gave what
to them were adequate reasons.
So the village looked on and smiled
as month after month passed and
these prophecies came to naught. The
simple folk still had their Ideals, and
there is nothing in life so satisfactory
as having one's ideals realized.
In the fulness of time there came
good news from Baldwin's Ford, and
there was much bustle and flutter
about Melissy's house and running in
of the neighbor women. When they
emerged it was with nods and smiles
and knowing winks, as if they were
bubbling over with some glad, mo
mentous intelligence. The spring
wagon was hastily rolled out, and old
Star, stepping more lively than she
for a dozen years, was has
tily put between the shafts. Jeff de-
I posited a mysterious bundle in the
wagon's bed and then leaped to the
seat. Then Mother Danbury came
out, all smiling anxiety, and with flut
erlng ribbons and nods to the as
sembled people she was borne away
towards Baldwin's Ford.
How the women gathered and chat
ted about It and wondered. It became
a village event. Jeff finally returned
grinning and shamefaced, to an
nounce: "It's a girl, and Mis' Danbury
says it weighs nine pounds."
The men on the street, after hear
ing the news, chuckled and walked
away.
Meanwhile there was rejoicing also
In the village of Baldwin's Ford.
Felix was joyfully tearful, and bust
lingly glad the grandmothers, while
Martha, all white from her travail,
lay nursing her babe to her bosom.
"Don't you think the little dear is
wrapped up ia little heavy?" whis
pered Mother'Danbury to the widow.
"Too heavy!" sniffed the widow;
"no, indeed. Why, when my Marthy
was two days old I had her wrapped
in twice that amount of stuff."
"But Marthy was born in the win
ter."
"That don't make no difference; a
baby's a baby. I've had one."
"I've had three." waa Mother Daa
bury's quiet retort.
■ "One of 'em's dead, though."
"She didn't die till she growed to
X be quite a girl, so It was the will o'
'/ Providence an' no fault o' mine."
"La, Mother "Danbury, I didn't say
yit was."
__ This was a trifle conciliatory, but j
R Felix's mother was hurt, and the Wid- :
m ow Dickson was put into an attitude :
of defence as to her rights over her
lg daughter's child.
The next day, when the doctor j
n came, the Widow Dickson forestalled j
Mother Danbury in questioning him,
' and took all the responsibility of car
ing for the child upon herself.
"I don't want to take the child from
you, Martha Ann Dickson, I only want
5e y° u - It>s m y son's child as
JO well "as your daughter's," said Moth
ld er Danbury.
la "My daughter had all the pain o'
bearin' this child."
jjiy "Well—well—" The other old lady
c She had nothing to say that i
quite fitted the occasion.
l( j' Day after day Mrs. Dickson bathed
(d and cuddled the baby while her visit-
j y or was compelled to stand by and
• look on. Finally one morning when
l 0 the baby was nearly three weeks old
, 0 wagon wheels were heard In the yard,l
a and Mother Danbury came into the?
ts room with her bonnet strings tied
and her duster on.
"Well, I guess I'll be goin', Marthy,"
j she said to her daughter-in-law.
"Why, Mother Danbury, you ain't
. a-goin', are you?"
j "Oh, the baby's doin' first rate, an'
it seems I ain't needed here any
' more."
Marthy begun to cry. "But I want
' you," Bhe said.
Then Mrs. Dickson broke in with
many tears. "It does seem strange
' to me, Marthy, that you should be
a-cryin' after somebody else after the
mother I've been to ye! That's all
. the thanks a mother gets."
"Never mind, never mind, you'll
get along all right, both o' you, an'
you know there's Melissy an' the chil
dren at home to look after."
' "But what will Felix say?" moaned
Marthy, for Felix's mother had chos
en a safe time, when he was away, to
3 take her departure.
"Felix is my son, too," said the
. widow, sternly.
t Then Mother Danbury turned on
5 her for one brief moment.
• "Fair exchange is no robbery, Mar
tha Ann Dickson," she said, and went
r out at once to the wagon, where she
tied down her veil, though the day
c was hot.
3 The baby smiled in its sleep. It is
t a pretty fallacy that says babies
t smile thus because angels are whis
, pering to them. In most cases, as
in this, the little ones, wise from oth
. er scenes, are smiling at the foibles
, of those greater Infants whom we are
pleased to call grown people.
t The return of Mother Danbury was
a source of great wonder to the com-
I munity, and again tongues flew freely
1 and inquiries were rife. The flying
• rumors could not but come to the
ears of their subject and some of the
overbold even went so far as to ques
tion her. But they could elicit no
more definite reply than: "Marthy an'
the baby was a-gettin' along ail'right, :
an' I could.do more good at home."
Then she closed her lips.
The voice of the croaker was de
cidedly suspicious as she said: "I
smell a rat." ,
After that Mother Danbury paid no
more visits to Baldwin's Ford, nor i ,
did she speak of its people unless
she were compelled.
On a morning, though, other news ,
was brought, and the old lady's indif
ference fell from her like a cloak.
With tearful eyes she made her way
towards the forbidden place, and as
she stepped into the wagon there
were none who had the heart to be
there and wave a good-by, for the
word said the baby was dying.
She came like an angel of peace to
the stricken household. The widow j
was ready for a scene, but firmly and I
gently the stronger woman put her
away. She kissed Martha and soothed
her as the hysterical widow could
not do. Then she turned to her son.
"Felix," she said, "ain't there no j
hope?"
"No, none."
" 'The Lord giveth an' the Lord
taketh away'—" But she could go no
further. An hour later the child I
breathed its last in her arms. It was I
she who bathed it and put it in its I
little gown and laid It silent in the
cradle. The widow had no remon
strance to offer, but she came later
and said: "Oh, Mother Danbury, I'm
afeared it's a jedgment. I ~was so hard
an' jealous about the pore little cree
ter. I've done wrong, an' the Lord's
took it. Pergive me, fergive me!" g
She fell upon her knees. Mother i
Danbury lifted her, and her own tears c
fell now. "You see how little all our c
feelin's an* wills air compared to
his," she said. "The child wasn't ours, t
it was his, an' he has showed us his j,
sign." ,
The afternoon sun stole in and n
kissed the little, wax-like face as the t
old women stood with clasped hands t
looking down upon the dead grand- t
child. b

brief season, to be then cast aside
and forgotten, the plumage dimmed
end iiideri, the beautiful songs,
quenched forever.
While by no means insensible to I
the higher value of birds, the farmer I
who is asked to aid in measures for !
their protection is entitled to inquire |
a3 to the practical purpose they sub
serve, and how far they may be ex
pected to return his outlay of time,
trouble and expense.
Since most birds eat insects and
since many eat practically nothing
else, it is their insect-eating habits
that chiefly invite inquiry, for so ac
tive and persistent are birds in the
pursuit of insects that they constitute
their most important enemies. ""
When birds tare permitted to labor
undisturbed they thoroughly police
both earth and air. The thrushes,
sparrows, larks and wens search the '
surface of the earth*or insects and'
the larvae or hunt among the leaves !
and peer under logs and refuse for
them. Thus each family plays its I
part in the never-ending warfare, and j
f,he number of insects annually con
sumed by the combined hosts is sim
ply incalculable. It is well that this
is so, for so vast is the number of
insects and so great is the quantity of
vegetation required for their sub- !
sistence that the existence of every i

green thing would he threatened were j
it not for birds and other agents spe
cially designed to keep them in
check.
While birds are not numerous in ,
the sense that insects are, they exist
in fair numbers everywhere—or.wouid
were it not for the Interference of '
man—and so rapid is the digestion of I
birds and so perfect their assimila
tive powers that, to satisfy the appe
tite of even a small bird, great num
bora of insects are needed. Much of !
this food is hidden and must be
searched for; much of it is active and i
must be vigorously pursued. Hence [
only by the expenditure of much t
time and labor do birds procure their |
daily food. With birds the struggle '
for existence Is peculiarly a struggle !
for subsistence; shelter is obtained '
with comparative ease, and If climatic ]
conditions are not to their liking they |
migrate to other regions.
When by reason of favorable condi
tions insects have multiplied and be
come unusually abundant, birds eat
more than at ordinary times; hence
the importance of their service during
insect invasions. It is not, however, i
at such periods that their services

-\ PEAR TREES ARE PROFITABLE
?!
Some Useful Information to Be Used
in Planting and Cultivating ,
for Good Returns.
The soil best adapated to the
growth of the pear is a clayey loam,
r " a very light soil not being conducive
° to longevity nor to fine growth or
5 ' much frufffulness, and a very heavy
a i soil retarding growth and stunting the
c ] trees every way. >
* jNo matter how desirable the soil
may be otherwise, unless well drained
[ the trees will not thrive. ;
t Pears grow over a wide range of
' climate, however, but the best results
j are obtained in rather moderate cli
. j mate. j
When a tree gets stunted the first
or second year no amount of care and
, attention seems to enable it ■to re
| gain the lost growth.
Time can usually be gained by not
j plowing the entire tract of land at
j once, but thoroughly plow and work
| iup strips for the tree rows, say six or
eight furrows wide, the intervening
space being worked up later or when
there is more time.
The standard varieties should be ,
planted about 25 feet apart each way
and the dwarf 12 feet apart each way.
Some growers plant alternate rows of ,
dwarf and standard varieties. Most I
people prefer to have them kept in
j separate fields, however.
Dig holes at the proper distance
about a foot deep and large enough to -
i contain the roots nicely without
! cramping; have a half barrel or tub
!of good rich mud near at hand, and
when the broken or crushed roots are,
removed with a sharp knife dip the
trees into the tub, covering the roots
with this mud, and in this way insur
" j ing the earth clinging to the roots.
Some good rich soil should be sprin
, kled In the bottom of the hole. Then
[ set the tree in, spreading the roots
, I nicely and then shovel the soil In
I carefully, settling the tree from time to :
,; time, and in this way have the soil '
. j well down among the roots. *
When the hole is about two-thirds J
i i full, press down firmly with the feet i
.' and then fill up and complete the job. 1
FIGHT THE IN3ECT PESTS. !
For the little white fly use sulpho- i
tobacco soap according to directions j
on the package. I
For rose bugs in the evening place t
two or three ounces of quassia chips j
(to be had of the druggist) in a pail «
and fill with boiling water; two or j
three gallons, according to size of the I
pail. Let stand until next morning, H
then apply the liquid to the plant with
'• a garden syringe, getting the tea on J
i all sides of the foliage and stems. If |
! the ".tea Is applied hand-hot it will be 1
more effective. I
A strong soap suds made of any 1
good white soap, if applied quite •
warm, is discouraging to the bug pop- I
ulation, and is especially "good" for 2
the green louse or aphis. .
Red spiders affect the outdoor as
well as the indoor plants and are
! usually found on the under side of
j the foliage, causing the leaves to turn
. brown and to curl at the edges. If
badly affected strip the leaves from the
plant and burn them.
The brain of the male begins to lose
i weight at 10, while that of the female
stalls ten years earlier.
