"We all will be. too." said the rest
orf the parrots.
Now throughout the big birdhouse
every single itarrit had gone up as
near to the glass roof as possible.
They were all sitting there with their

dropping on the roof and the parrots
all let their wings down and slowly
went down to drink f~mo their cups ife
water and bathe in the baths given to
them by the keeper.
"When nill we ever learn that a

in the birdhouse? It is like being In

said thl, with hi, head on one side
and his eyes blinking wisely.
"Yes." said Itrtdy. "we never can
forget the ways of parrots when they

"Rut It is the same with those who
have never been wild." said Blue.
"The parrots which have been born
here act the same way. And we're all

And little did they know that the'
parret cousins far away were so prBlul
because though the parrots learned to
talk like people, they always remem
bered the old parrot trick of being
ready to receive the rain.
Dumb Preachers.
Martin Luther said that the best
preacher be ever had was a little tame
robin, that lighted every day on his
window sill looking for crumbs. The
little bird's confidence that his wants
would be supplied taught the great
reformer a lesson of trust in the Heav
enly Father. Some of you girls and
boys might learn a lesson from the
promptness with which year dog obeys
yoa, even when you tell him things
he does not want to do. Some of the
dumb preachers are ihelpful because
