(BUNKER HILL FLAG- STARS AND BARS)
The flags pictured above are all
The first, which we know well, is
the flag of our country to-day. It was
designed under the direction of Gen.
Washington, and was made by Mrs.
Betsy Ross. The thirteen stripes rep
resent the thirteen original states, the
stars represent the number of states
now in the union. It is impossible,
in so smail a drawing, to put in the
full number of stars.
How many should there be?
Paint the stripes alternately red and
white, putting a red one at the top.
The stars, as you all know, are white
on a blue ground.
The next flag is one that was used
in 1775, before the final break with
England. The body of -the flag is red,
the field in the corner blue, with the
double cross white. The single cross,
the part which is shown by the oblique

Make bows or rosettes of ribbon and
tack on in various places, as to add
to the daintiness.
The moose or elk is the largest
member of the deer family; it lives in.
Northern Europe and America. It is.
a good runner when the ground is
solid ,and leads the bunter a long
chase, but when the snow is deep it is
easily secured because of its awkward
gait when running. It is hunted on
snow shoes in winter, and it feeds on
the twigs of trees. The skin makes a
very good leather, it is soft and thick.
The moose can be trained to draw
sledges and become a beast of burden,
and is a good swimmer. The antlers
of the moose are very heavy, but they

The Apple Tree's Story.

many books with pictures in them
about old gardens. Aunt Elinor's gar
den looks like the most beautiful one
described in the books, but it has

lines, is red.
The flag below the Stars and Stripes
is one of those carried at Bunker Hill.
Before our flag was designed the dif
ferent colonies used different flags,
several of them showing the pine tree.
This flag, like the flag of 1775, shows
a strong likeness to the English flag.
The ground is blue, the field in the
corner white with a red cross, and a
green pine tree.
The last banner is the one known as
the "Stars and Bars," the flag of the
Southern Confederacy. This flag was
to cause a confusion at times of bat
tle, so it was changed for the South
ern Cross, which is the flag that we
commonly see.. The one before you
was, however, the real flag of the
South. The stripes are red and white,
the white one being in the middle.

the little old cannon in the grass with
the bird's nest just inside its mouth.
I often lnk how surprised the can
non must be every summer to have
a bird fly out of it instead of a can
non ball. The cannon is 200 years old.
We are quite sure of this because a
date was put on it when it was made,
but we know nothing about the first
hundred years of its life, and we do
not believe even the bird does which
has built its nest within it, although
we think the robin that sings in the
apple tree may know a great deal
more about the apple tree's story than
We, for Instance, only know it as
far back as the year when the boys
went blueberrying in the sheep pas
ture. That was in 1786. Possibly
some great-great-grandmother robin
may have sung about the years before
to the little baby robins, and they,
when they grew up, to the other little
baby robins, until in this way the
story has come down to the robins
which sing to us now.-St. Nicholas.
