and quaint flowers which Ita mistress
waa fond of planting.

children of the neighborhood were

dlaturbed them, for both Mr*. Shir

glad young voices, and even went eo
far as to add attrartlona to lure them
to their choeen playground rather
than to drive them away. At the end

In December. Aa I walked by a large
enow drift, I saw eome kind of a
froten body In tbe mow. I got down
on my knees to examine It. It was a
dog. My friends Juat laughed and
said a* I tried to pull the body out:
"It'a dead, so what a tha use of
trying to get It out.”
I proudly showed a badge I had
and started to dig the anow away
from the dog Aa I pulled out the
dog I noticed It wa* alive, and waa
a St. Bernard. I carried It home, and

Aa aach naw season cornea It aaema
tha beat one of all. Especially In the
spring am I glad that my little house
stands so close to the woods, where
I can watch th# trees wakening frem
their long winter's sleep. Among the
dark trunka of other trees tha gray
beeches have looked almost whit*.
Hidden In tha silky brown bud
acalea of tha beach, with Its many
layers, have been the young shoots
This Is tha month when they puah
aside thalr wrappings. Tha outer
scales are falling while tha Inner
ones are growing longer, and now
the silky-coated baby lea res are ar
pearing. No tree In all tha woods
seemed quite ao lovely this morning
aa tha beech. Its twigs all covered
with tender baby leaves of green.
One almost wishes these hablea might
stay aa they are always.
Roma of you writs me la March
that you had already bean la tha
wooda for pussywillows that tall ao
early that spring la on tha way. Tha
brown scales of tha poplar tree loosen
In March on tha buds that are plump.
Then tha fussy gray puastaa, all fluah

wavs at ua from avary branch. Aa
soon aa thalr golden pollan dust la
opened their catklna fall and are
scattered to the wind.
Often do I wish thee* early spring
days that all my young friends among
tha Go-Hawks might find tha little
winding road that leads to tha wooda.
If ever you do, then look for a brown
cottage with many windows, and un
derneath each one a ahelf for the
birds1 uee In the winter. Tou will
know the house because the path
leads from the front door straight
Into the wooda. Better wear your
buttons when >-oil come to look for
me. Then 1 will “now you are Go
