The first of these messages receded was from Dr. Ralph Scnragg. who a on the staff o' the Oliver mental hospital and who was a pupil of Miss Pair's in 1916. Guv Denbigh, as chairman, ex- pressed the regret of all in losing so valued a citizen and called on Mrs G. C Collier, for a short ad- dress on behalf of the townspeople. Mrs. Collier made a presentation, to Miss Pair and outlined her pro- eress through the years since 1916. She commented on Miss Fair's knowledge of the minds of voung children and said that the friend- ships Miss Fair had made here were lasting and real, that her as- sociation the church, as sec- retarv for a number of years to the W.MJ5.; as Past Noble Grand in the Clover Leaf Rebekah Lodge and Past Worthy Matron in the Order j of the Eastern Star had endeared j her to manv.

Several small children, under school age, were playing nearby. One farava little girl about four vears old. started to examine the bird. First she spread its opened its eves, and felt the body; but could find no sign of life. She held the bird in her little hands, and kept repeating in a sorrowful voice: robin, poor robin." Then putting the bird down ten- derly, she summoned her comrades to a" nearbv vacant lot. Here, with her mother's coal shovel, they worked in turn, and finally man- aged to dig a little hole at, least a foot deep. Now thev returned to where the dead bird "lay. The little girl in charge lined up her ulaymates in single file. Then solemnly taking- low sorrowful tones, gave them last-minute instructions. Now. hold- ing the bird straignt out front of her. she started to lead the sad procession towards the vacant lot. The children walked skraly, with knees stiff, and heads boned. Their little faces were so sad and wist- ful! When they reached the grave the little four-year-old carefully placed the body in a certain position. Now they all formed a circle aud re- peated certain words. What the exact words were is a secret for them alone. The next proceedure was to carefully cover the bird's body with paper to keep the dirt at a respectful distance. Then they very, very qusetly filled in the dirt. SULK EUert'Sihis bam.

It was not for nothing that; those sharp little teeth of his had grown so fast. Of course it was same way with his broth- ers and sisters.
