taming him wiih their sweet and wearied
strains. When admitted to the tame
cage with them, he tried almost assidu

ever, for a long time, with miserable suc
cess enough. He would stand and watch
with an agony of attention, and then try to
imitate their ..otes. He would swell out
his throat and atietch up his neck as they
did, and with a violent effort, try to sound
one note, which, in spite of all his zeal
and labor, proved to be a mere rougli
scream. At this humiliating failure, he
would be so provoked and enraged that
he would fly at his inoffensive and well
meaning mates and teachers, and peck
thein most unmercifully, and drive theui
from their perch. So he did for three or
'our weeks, before any apparent prog
ress was made in ius Mudies. But his
perseveiance was equal to the difficulties

finally completed the wnole canary song
and could siug it to perfection. Then lie
would sing with them in perfect harmo

the exact lime with them. It is also a
little singular that, although through all
this training, he was uover known to Le- P®
giu to make a tound, till the canaries had
first struck the key-note, yet, after he had
acquired the sk.ll to siog their song, he
must always himself now give the sigual
by a significant clu^k when instantly
the cananer, geueiously lorgeturg or for
giving his former incivilities, would strike
in with him, and perform the piece with
