Blue Jay Gets a Thrashing.

Fanner Dalton and Uie Birds so that the
latter may help cave the war crops, seems
about to accomplish her ends, when Blue
Jay and his crowd come to the council hall
boasting of a destructive raid on the farm
era orchard and garden.)
"QJHAME on you, Blue Jay!" cried
"Shamel Shame! .Shame!"-shrieked
. the Birds.
"Oh, I didn't know you were, here,
said Blue Jay, as he saw Peggy and
Farmer Dalton. Then he blustered
to cover , up his confusion. "But
don't care. We've just as much right
to eat as anyone. '
s "But you haven't any right to eat
what you haven't helped to grow, nor
tos destroy that which someone else
might eat, declared Peggy severely,
JLhat s what I say, spoke up
Farmer Dalton indignantly. Thats
why I don't want the Birds on my

who are honest, and that means most
of the Birds, shrilled Mr. Swallow,
who seemed very angry, we are
willing to earn fai more than we eat
; by helping to grow it. But Birds who
are fair and square are given a bad
name by such rowdies as the Jays
Now we see why you think we are all
enemies and nuisances, but we're go-
,. mg to show you that we will not
stand for such conduct." He glared
fiercely at Blue Jay, who glared de
' fiantly back and screamed a mocking
... Goody, goody. Swallow boy,
Mamma's pat and Daddy'a joy, .
Mr. Swallow's feathers ruffled with
rage, but his voice as he turned to
Judge Owl was very calm almost
too calm, Peggy thought. '
Will you please pass sentence,
iv judge Uwl drew himseir up very
solemnly and looked at Blue Jay
severely, as he hooted:
x ' You've had your fling. Blue Jar;
i You've shamed ua all today;

"That's all I have to aay.
He paused then hooted abruptly
"Go to it Swallow P'
And Mr. Swallow went to it Like a
flash he was upon Blue Jay. The
, rascal took wing to dodge the at
v tack, but Mr. Swallow smashed into
him and upset him in midair.' Blue
Jay went sprawling down among the
Urioles and each took a peck at him.
The other Jays flew to his aid, but
Mr. bwalrow was a perfect fury and
boldly . attacked the whole crowd,
scattering them shrieking before him.
Blue Jay freed himself from the Ori
oles and bobbed up into the air. Mr.
Swallow caught him and fairly made
the feathers fly as he tore into him
with beak and claws.
Blue Jay lost all his sauciness and
bluster in a hurry. He tried to fight
back; for he was no coward, but Mr.
Swallow was mad clear through. He
was bound to give Blue Jay a thor
, ough thrashing and he did it. He
pecked and buffeted and clawed. Fi
nally Blue Jay could stand the. punish
ment no longer, and made off screech
ing into the, woods. The other Swal
lows now joined in the chase, and the
Jays were quickly driven from ' the
forest, with a sharp warning not to

when he came back from the fray,
but he hadn't lost a feather. He of
