All the Day and cau5ht anly a the Little people up the High Mountain to look at his father s sheep went Little Gitto one Beautiful Spring Day. When the Little boy had reached the to he saw a number of Lovely Little fairies dancing and playing and singing. Gitto was a sociable Little fellow and lost no time in join lug the charming Quot Little people a As fairies were called in that part of Wales. Many a Day after this did Gitto climb to the Mountain top and always found the Quot Little people ready to play with him and when he returned he always declared he had been with the children of the Mountain for he was too Little to know anything about fairies and thought his playmates were children like himself. One Day however Gitto did not return and his parents became very much alarmed. Nor did he come the next Day or the Day after that u search was made Over the Mountain r it nowhere was Gitto to be seen. The whole Village turned out to search for Little Gitto was a great favorite with every one. Tho Days slipped by months grew into years until Gitto had been lost for two of the Long sorrowful years and his parents were still lamenting his loss. One evening when it was nearing a upper time we Hen the Mother opened her front door to Call the children who were playing in the Garden a he was amazed and delighted to see Gitto sitting on the Doorstep exactly As he had been accustomed to do be the old swimming Hole fore he went away.

To one is allowed to peek ton should see us ran. I am sure that Jack and Jane Are not far away i have hunted them in vain till its work not play. I guess they Are right in Here quiet As can be. Hiding on dark shelves so queer ill just look and see. but Gitto had not grown and he looked exactly As he did on the Day when he disappeared. Gitto never saw the Quot Little people again for his father never allowed him to fro alone to the Mountain top but he never forgot the pretty songs he had Learned to sing and often when the Sun was shining Gitto would sing softly to himself Quot Shine Golden Sun on us today while merrily we dance Mary had a Little mule a very stubborn Jack for everywhere that Mary went that mule would simply Back. On one of those dazzling Blue and White Days that near the seashore Only come once in a while in t in late summer a Flash of Blue Gray and a startling ringing rattling cry told that the Kingfisher was on his Way to the tallest stake marking the Oyster Beds for his morning s fishing. As be passed the Little Salt Marsh that Lay Back from the Shore the Black and White Kingbird on the old Fence Post launched himself into the air in Pursuit but with an extra rattle and a Sharp curve the Kingfisher dodged him. And went his Way. Really the Kingbird was not fussy about following when he realized that it was the Kingfisher lot he was a Good neighbor and stayed Over the Waters of the Bay and never disturbed the Marsh where the Kingbird a nest was and that he regarded As his own Especial property. Kingbird with his Black head and Back and the White band across the Edge of his Tail was quite convinced As a feathered Warrior that it was a most important part of his life a Mission to Only allow other Birds that he approved of on his Home Range. There was the Little spotted Sandpiper and her family of four Chicks who lived in the Garden on the Hillside Back of the Marsh. He saw her making trips to the Shore at All parts of the Day in search of specially Choice morsels for those four that looked like Bunches of Cotton on two toothpicks and who could run with the Speed of mice in and out among the rows of vegetables. But Kingbird Felt quite Friendly toward her when he noticed her at All for she never pried into the Marsh round his nest with its four Brown splashed White eggs and the Little brooding Mother. This morning the tide was ebbing and All along the line of wet Sand that was steadily growing wider a Bevy of Shore Birds were gathering to collect the stranded fish and insects that the retreating tide left As the Harvest of the sea. The Sandpiper was working industriously to get her share and the night herons and even an occasion Al Gull were flying and wading along the Waters Edge while farther Back some of the land Birds were venturing onto the wet Sand for the titbits. Quot Caw Caw Caw rang out. A three crows hovered above the scene at the Little Cove where the tide seamed to leave its choicest morsels and was echoed by the shrieks of the Blue jays who alternated from the wet Sand to the Bayberry Bushes. But the crows were Large and aggressive and did not hesitate to crowd their lesser neighbors whenever something particularly desirable came in sight amid Many protesting cries and much squabbling. A Hawk that was on his Way up teetering motion which the Small Chicks seemed to Echo she started off again for the Shore. Once More she joined the general scrimmage going on where the cawing of the crows and the cries of the other Birds a they disputed Possession of every scrap they found waa creating an uproar. But Sandpiper was no stranger to the ways of the Shore and she teetered along the Edge of tile group of squabbling Birdie until she secured the crap she wanted then started her return flight to the Garden. While she was still some distance off the Chicks heard her Quot Peet Weet Weet Weet Weet a and responding to her Call ran to the spot where she \ a a Tyr or directions and instantly disappeared. The Mother Bird fully Alert to the danger instead of flying to the immediate Protection of the Corn and potatoes Flung herself before the Hawk in a fluttering shrieking Ball. The Hawk lost no time in flying at this shrieking Ball of feathers. Just As his descent began now in deadly Earnest something St Nick the Hawk in the Middle of Tho Hack and again his flight was changed. Blow after of cow rained Down on his head and Back As the Small Black and White Kingbird attacked him savagely. Only a fraction of Tho Hawks size and weight the Kingbird kept continually above him and poured blows upon his head and scattered a Shower of feathers along the path they followed. Up and Down twisting this Way and that the Hawk darted but the Kingbird Clung till they reached the Crest of the Hill that was the limit of the Kingbird a Range then he left the Hawk to go his Way and returned with triumphant cries announcing his Victory and that his own Range was again Safe from intruders.

Cow rtt Jhu Momu Rax a dazzling Bine and White Day with the Birds squabbling on the Shore. The Shore was attracted by the disturbance and flew in circles a round and a round Over the group of noisy Birds but after a Little seemed logo his Way. The Little Sandpiper having secured a particularly Choice Beetle started Back from the Shore to the Garden on the Hillside where her Quot Peet Weet Weet Weet Weet Quot brought the four Chicks running from As Many directions to meet her.

A she was within a few feet of the ground the Call changed to a terrified scream a the Hawk swooped Down upon her. She escaped its claws by a fraction of an Inch and fell into the thin grass at the Edge of the potatoes. The Chicks seemed dazed and crouched Down against the warm Sand. The Hawk swung upward but seeing the group of Chicks again dropped like a Stone into the very Center of them with clutching claws and threatening beak. Their mothers cries roused them to a sense of self Protection and they scattered in All once upon a time there was a Flower Garden that had a White washed Fence around it and a Sundial in bin Middle.
