Have we nesting places ready, for
the bluebirds? In a very- short time
they will be ready for housekeeping
and-we must have suitable homes
for them, if we would have them
stay with us.
A box 8 inches deep and 5 or 6
inches in diameter, set up on a pole
or in a. tree will usually attract
them. The entrance should not be
more than one arid, one-half inches
across, and should be 6 inches
above the floor.' -.-.A perch is riot
necessary.' Put the box eight or
ten feet above the ground.
How did" the birds know that the
winter would be mild? Who can
tell? Many of our birds did not go
south'as usual. We are informed
that robins, bluebirds and cardinals
were seen ""here in'v January arid
showed themselves quite frequently
the firsjt part of February.
Chickadees are-quite num.erous
this winter. Let us see if we can't
keep them with us through the
summer ly providing them with
suitable nesting places. Theylike
a deep'box, at least ten inches deep
by four inches across each way.
The entrance should be eight inches
above the floor and about one and
one-quarter inches across, So that
English sparrows could riot enter.
It should be placed from six to fif
teen feet above the ground.

to have a visit with his father. Jack
was a popular druggist here at the
time of the draft. He received a call
and obeyed its raandate. He was
attached to a medical corps at the
front in France and had' many nar
row escapes from injury. Sack'con
ceived the idea 'of gathering up sou
venirs and since his discharge and
arrival at his store here he has made
a fine display of them, which in
terests hundreds every day. To us,
who live so far inland that have to
content ourselves with -reading
about the war, its weapons and des
truction, these weapons give Us a
more comprehensive idea of hell
