a new question to put to each youth as

It is: -"Are jou amedioligne or bre

"What a delightful winter we have
had," is an expression that could be
heard almost anywhere when the
topic of the weather became the sub
ject of conversation. Not only In the
Middle West and "down east" could
it be heard, but also in the Far West,
up in the Canadian West. There
the same remarkable features that
brought forth a wonderful winter ex
isted. Reports from all parts of the
country, from famed Medicine Hat In
Alberta to Winnipeg in Manitoba. In-'
dicate that all through the winter
season very little cold weather was
experienced. In December, we read
that golf playing had put into the dis
card all ice sports, that farmers were
caught "red-handed" plowing tbeir
fields. In January, the Alberta yeo
mnn got out his tractor aud in his
shirt sleeves was seen preparing
ground for the 3921 crop. During
February, in Saskatchewan, one
farmer harrowed fifty acres and
planted the ,seed. "Why, yes, tf
course, m March," said an Iowa
farmer, who liad jnst heard from his
son, who was looking after the 'Vest
em Canadian farm, "my boy writes
me they had some snow, and a few
cold dips, Dnt what did that matter?
The cattle and the horses came
through fne winter in better condition
than they looked three or four months
ago. Grass was plentiful on the prai
ries, the stubble was rich and valu
able as food, and the straw stacks
and groves proved ample for shelter."
Spring is now fully upon the West
ern Canada farmer, his machinery is
all in shape for a spring's work, and
he Is looking forward to an excellent
crop year. Last fall there was a
splendid lot of moisture that perme
ated the ground sufficiently to leave
a perfect seed bed. Indications are
now that the crop will go in in the
condition required for successful ger
mination. Then, with the lengthened
days of May and June, the many
hours of sunshine that they bring, ac
companied by showers of rain, and
with ft soil of which there Is none
richer nor more generous, there will
be seen preparing for a ripening har
vest the hundreds of thousands of
acres of wheat, oats, barley, rye, al
falfa and corn that will make the
hearts of the Western Canada farmers
swell with pride as they reasonably
look forward to an abundant harvest.
There is a great deal that can be
said In favor of the climate of West
ern Canada. The most important is
that those who live there, and have
lived in other countries, prefer It to
any they have experienced elsewhere.
It Is true the winters as a rule are
colder than are those In countries
lying much farther south, but it Is
also true that they are tempered by
a dryness of the atmosphere that
makes a lower temperature preferable
to that several degrees higher where
greater humidity prevails. Enerva
tion and Hstlessness are unknown;
the air is bracing, but the cold is not
penetrating. Then the summers and
the autumns they could not 'be more
enjoyable. Advertisement.

Instinct, the consistency with which
migrant birds return to given areas
in their winter range, routes followed
by individual birds, aud even polygamy
these and countless other problems
the American Bird Banding associa
tion seeks to solve by methods that
leave no oppotunity for questioning the
accuracy of the date.
The several hundred members of the
Association have for 12 years been
conducting their research on a large
scale in the western hemisphere, and
European societies whose aims are
identical with those of the American
workers have been operating since
1898. These bodies of investigators
pursue their experiments by the use
of rings, bands of tags, each bearing
an inscription or ' return address and
a serial number. The bunds are usu
ally made of aluminum and are man
ufactured In about a dozen different
izes to fit the legs of all birds, from
the smallest warbler to the clumsy
pelican and the mighty eagle.
Fifty-eight thousand of these bands
have, so far been made for the Amer
ican Bird Banding association, and
approximately 20,000 have been placed
by members on the legs of native wild
birds. Each ring is stamped with the
words, "Notify Am. Museum, N. Y"
and following this, or on reverse side
of the band, is serial number. At
the time the band is placed on the
bird the bander records on a stan
dard file card all information relating
to'the operation. These data Include
the number of the band, the name of
the bird. Its age (whether nestling,
fledgling or adult). locality, date, name
of bander and remarks. The bird,
having been thoroughly "catalogued,"
Is sent on its way.
Long Migrations Recorded.
Workers for the association have
carried bands Into the remotest re
gions. As members of scientific and
exploring parties they have placed the
tags on birds In Aláska, Greenland,
Labrador, and even in the antarctic a
thousand miles from Cape Horn. A
.young robin, banded In its nest on the
lonely shores of Great Slave lake, in
the Northwest territory of Canada,
has been reported from Louisiana,
more than 2,000 miles away; a Mas
sachusetts tarn, r sea swallow, has
been recovered a similar distance
from its birthplace, in the waters off
the Venezuelan coast, and a chimney
swift, a 'bird less than six Inches long,
has been recorded at its New Hamp
shire summer home after three sea
sonal journeys to South America, in
volving almost incredible wing mile
age, the minimum distance covered
'having been 18,000 miles.
Aside frem the birds which are sys
tematically trapped, wild birds, either
dead or aDve, fall into human hands
in a variety of ways.
The longest period record thus far
turned in is been produced by a com
mon crow, "which was banded in the
nest at Berwyn, Pa.', May 17. 1914, and
shot while stealing chickens on the

legible today as it was when received
from the maker, notwithstanding the
six years of rough treatment under
all weather conditions. One of the
most astounding details of bird life
brought out by banding has to do with
the domestic relations of Jenny Wren
and her songful husband.
Wren Is Fickle.
Wrens habitually raise two large
families in rapid sequence each sea
son, and in these circumstances it
would naturally be thought the head
of the establishment would give his
uninterrupted attention to his house
hold. Not so, however, with an Ohio
bouse wren, who,' the moment his first
hatch of offspring was on the wing,
ruthlessly abandoned his little brown
wife and, moving off less than a hun
dred yards, reared ih's second family
with a newly found mate. This ahom-1

Chicago, March 13. The Italian
woman sat huddled in the corner, her
thin shoulders shaking. The color

leaned over her and remarked:
"She says : 'Oh, my baby ! Baby

Another house wren with a history
is the "little old woman who lived in
a shoe." She and her husband and
their 13 children (reared in two in
stallments) were all banded. No word
has ever been heard from the children
since they left home, but a year later
a wren was seen at the old "shoe bun

no mate was near. The observer is
left wondering if perhaps there Is not

Of the total of 20,000 birds banded

recoveries are being received from

Tries Music as Aid to Insane.
It was at the state hospital for the
Insane in Dunning. Surrounded by
the "stuporous," or depressed types of
insane patients, Mr. Boguslawski sat
at a piano running through the emo
tional gamut of music. A small audi
ence of alienists watched the experi
ment. ...
Can insanity be ; cured through
music? After two years' of research,
Mr. Boguslawski claimed remarkable
results from music on such cases. He
has been performing experiments at
the Dunning institutiorf, It Is said, for
the last month. He . has been hold
ing weekly "musical clinics."
Psychiatrists and health department
officials, as well as Chicago physi
cians, are watching the experiments at
Dunning. At each "music therapeut

B. Rotulan of the hospital staff hns
collected data for presentation to the
American medical profession for dis
cussion. "These experiments are the first of
their kind ever conducted in the Uni
ted States." said Dr. Rotman. "They
are highly interesting. There is a
universal potency to music; it ap
peals to the subtler elements of the
mind. Patients long considered dull
are aroused by tills music to the ex

much mental distress. Probably n

One of the cases studied was Mary
