Visitors to the rural districts this I
week were surprised to see a large J
number of blue birds. These little i
ieathered songsters are generally con- I
ildered harbingers of spring and their
presence so soon causes observers of

the worst of the winter is past and
that spring is rapidly approaching. Anpthcr
happening of yesterday which
pld residenters say means the breaking
up of winter was the storm which ,
visited the city accompanied by peals ,
