SOME NEW TENANTS THE* INHABIT THE DESERTED HOUSES OF NEW ENGLAND. The Birds and Animals Have Taken Possession of Many of the Old Homesteads in New Hampshire. Down here in New Hampshire, one of the first things to impress a new comer is the great number of deserted homes and abandoned farms. If you were to ask how they came to be aban doned, you would find that there were about as many answers as there are deserted houses; each house baa its own story, though in many cases this story will never be told. Some were deserted because of the harshness of parents; others because of wayward ness of children; others still because the niggard soli would not yield a liv ing. Here you will find a house whose last occupant committed suicide, and there is one I know of whose owner was murdered years ago, and whose body has not yet been found. But it is an ill wind which blows good to no one, and there are many who have profited by the desertion of these old houses. t I have visited many so-called desert ed farms since I came down here, and almost all of them have new tenants now —tenants whose ancestors owned this country thousands of years before Columbus was a baby. Among the first to take possession of these old places were the birds. There are few of them indeed which cannot boast of at least one pair of Phoebes in the summer. Occasionally these gentle little flycatchers will build outside on some projecting bit of woodwork under the eaves perhaps, but more often they go right inside through a broken window or some half open door, and build their home on the mantelpiece or above a window-frame. Sometimes I find them In the cellar on one of the beams, and on such a site last summer I watched a pair of Phoebes rear two broods of five. The chimney swifts, too, were quick to note that there were no fires in the chimneys of these houses, and were prompt to take advantage of the fact All summer long these stiff-looking birds were to be seen, wheeling in wide circles over the old farm lands, flitting bat-like above the houses, or, with wings raised over their backs, dropping like plummets to their sun less Hornes. One day about two weeks ago, I wag hiding in one of these deserted houses to watch for deer, which often came into the orchard for the fallen apples. Hearing a slight noise behind me, 1 turned my head slowly, and there was a chipmunk sitting on the top of an old wooden bin, and looking straight at me. H4s cheek pouches were full of what I afterwards discovered were ap. pie seeds. He sat watching me for a few minutes, and, as I didn’t move, ran to a hole which had been gnawed in the top of the bin, and into it he whisked. Presently he was out again, with the swelling gone from his face, and in a moment h© was scampering across the orchard, where he sat down on a stone and began biting a small apple to pieces to get at the seeds. In another ancient dwelling—this was in the Blue mountain forest game preserve—l chanced to open an old closet and found upwards of a dozen white-footed mice which popped out oi a large and snug nest made entirely of buffalo hair. I have seen or heard of these old buildings, and there are brown rats in a few of them at least. I noticed a pair of weasels emerge from one old cellar and in the mud upon the floor of another there were the footprints of a large raccoon. In a cottage surrounded by woodland I found the floors gnawed by the teeth of porcupines. The gnawing had been done chiefly along the cracks be tween the planking, possibly because here, more than elsewhere, the boards were soaked with a salty grease, a del icacy much beloved by porcupines Porcupines are so fond of salt in any form that it is no uncommon thing, for them to ruin oars, paddles and other implements, by gnawing at those parts which have been held in the hand, and in-which salt has been deposited from the perspiration. But shier creatures than these have learned that there is no longer any thing to fear in these silent, weather beaten buildings. Rabbits and wood chucks frequent them with impunity; the former usually run out and the latter ruft in when anyone approaches. J3ut what surprised me most of all one July evening, was. to see In what had once been the barnyard of one of these old farms, a fox with four well grown cuba I came upon them sud denly, or I might have enjoyed the sight at my leisure; as It was, the old Ihdy caught sight of me on the Instant and there was a wild scramble for the mouth of the den, a good-sized hole under the floor of the barn, where they vanished In less time than it takes te tell of it.
