TKE OMATTA SUNDAY BEE: MAT 21, 1911.
TRA.NGE that more of the Busy Beea hare not been out TlalUng
' the parka, or out In the wooda gathering wild flower.
Oh, lome of you have been? Well, the rest of ua would
like to bear fibout those excursions. Won't you write ua and
tell of the tramp over the billa and down the ravines to pluck
the violet or the columbine? We would like to read of the ex
cursions and eh a re your pleasure In finding the blossoms.
When you got back from the trip you no doubt-were tired, and hungry,
and sleepy, from being out In the sun and wind. But the next day, or the
next, you could remember your sensations and had time to write.
If all the Bees would write of flower excursions, picnics or the summer
games, we would have a great many good stories fori the page. Try It

kind friends, for the spring flowed back
into the hill to water the roots of the elm.

the gods and goddensrs If they bad seen
