Nothing could be more depressing to one

lefore you Co iriy on your summer
vacation next year It might be well to
plan out a little course of procedure, and
to make a few resolutions. First of all.
resolve that you will not enter into any
conversation which lowers the moral tone
of those who participate or who listen,
and that you will Indulge In no criticism

One of the most remarkable Instltu
lone with which I am acquainted is the
National Association of Audubon socle-ties.
An Audubon so
ciety Is a society
of bird -lovers and
students of ornithol
ogy, I. e., of the
science of birds.
These societies all
bear the common
name of Audubon,
because of the- won

which John James
Audubon aroused
country In America
for the study of
Audubon was a genius who devoted his
life to picturing snd describing the birds
of this continent In eolers and In word',
so true to nature, and so beautiful, that
because of his books people's attention
was drawn to the birds. It sounds
strange, but It Is true, thst some of the
rtnest things in the world go unnoticed
until a book, or a picture, or an enthusi
astic description, attracts all eyes to
There Is now an Audubon society In
virtually every state in the union and
these are all combined for united action
in thn association of whloh I have spoken.
The object of this association Is the pro-
I tection of wild birds and animals. It has
its headquarters In New York and Its
agents all over the country, as far as It
Is able to obtain and maintain them.
It was founded upon voluntary ' sub
scriptions and endowments, and is mainly
deenent upon such for its continuance
nrd specially for its extension. it. is a
charitable Institution, expressing the
charity of man toward some of his less
rifted fellow crestures on the earth who
are at his mercy. Its Insplrer and the
collector and director of Its energies Is
Its secretary. Mr. T. Gilbert Pearson-
There Is, perhaps, no beneficent or
ganization In existence whloh spends so
smsll a proportion of Its Income upon
Itself and so great a proportion upon Its
wrork. Ninety-three per cent of all It
gets goes directly to the account of the
birds providing shelters, reservations
and sanctuaries for them, guarding them
against starvation, getting laws passed
In their behalf, making friends for them
by spreading knowledge of their ways.
habits, nature and needs, protecting them
against the consequences of human greed,
selfishness. Ignorance and the instinct
for slaughter.
If all the facts Were known to the
people of this country there would be
ten times as many Audubon societies as
now exist. AVhen the native birds of a
country are driven away, not only Is one
of ita greatest charms destroyed, but a
deadly blow is struck at its prosperity
The birds are the farmers' and the gar
deners' best friends.
The birds' great enemies are tbe plume
hunters, the marketmen and the Indis
criminate shooters. Every year the re
presentatives of the association have, to
combat. In one state or another, the ef
forts of those who are continually striv
ing to neutralise the protection afforded
to birds and other wild animals by the
game laws.
One of the hardest problems with which
the defenders of the birds have to dal
Is that of protecting them during their
seasonal migrations, when, of course.
they pass from Jurisdiction to Jurisdic
tion, where no community of law re
lating to them exists. The fogical rem
edy would bo a national law, applied
without regard to state boundaries. But
here difficulties abound.
The slaughterers are able to Invoke
politics, and thus hamper all the efforts
of the birds' friends. Last year the De
partment of Agriculture, after starting
an energetic enforcement of the federal
law for the protection of migratory birds.
receded from Its stand, under pressure.
the result being that all federal protec
tion was Withdrawn from bobolinks In
the states of New Jersey, Delaware snd
Pennsylvania I am assured that the
association will put all Its energy Into a
battle for the bobolinks during the com
ing year.
One of the chief branches of the work
of the Audubon societies is that relat
ing to the sea birds dwelling along both
coasts of America- Wardens are em
ployed whoso business It Is to see that
the birds are not disturbed and that their
eggs are not stolen at their principal
breeding colonies.
