She used to spend Long hours alone in the Woods watching them and or Yang to imitate their Calls. Later some one gave her a Bird Book and she Learned to know their scientific names. When she went to College she took a course in ornithology which she enjoyed More than any other part of her work. So when her father died Sud Denly at the end of her Sophomore year leaving her with no relatives and Only a Little Money she resolved to Start a Bird store in the City Clarita had ideas. A number of her friends had started gift shops and Tea rooms which were More or less a Clarita visited All such shops that she could find noting their Clever decorations. I Don t see Why a Bird store can t be As attractive As any sort of gift she argued. Mine shall be so that All the old ladles in town will want to give canaries to their grand children for it proved to be an attractive shop As different As the most modern dec orator could wish. After All there is nothing More decorative than Birds with their Bright else Why should we so often see them drawn and painted Clarita s real Birds arranged among Green plants Hung against Gray Walls in quaint japanese tinges furnished All the Edcor Atlon one could wish.

Determining age of Man How scientist has fixed glacial be Hod in Sweden. Prof. Gerald de Geer a scandinavian Man of science has for Many years been studying the Sands deposited by the glaciers in the told la sea in Sweden. These lie in layers of alternately Fine and coarse Sand. It seems j certain that the Fine Sand is deposited by the slow flow of Winter and that the i course layers Are due to the summer j flow when the streams Are swollen by j the thawing of the glaciers. By counting these layers and study i ing their thickness professor de Geer has come to the conclusion that South Ern Sweden was first Clear of glacial ice finout 2000 years ago. How s he would ask.

I a i should think any Blick could sing in that mrs Tucker h anxieties concerning her pets must have mul hulled As the summer went on for or. Lames Tucker jr., found it necessary to drop in and look at the Birds very frequently indeed. Clarita used to smile when Bhe saw him coming. Or. James jr., was a Young lawyer and his office not yet being overrun with clients he found time to visit the Bird store la the Middle of the morning or the after noon or sometimes both. Birds were never better looked after than were the Tuc Feer canaries. How s he would ask com ing in to find Clarita polishing cages or filling tiny cups with Bird seed. Very Clarita would answer most demurely. He s been singing his Bend off this morning nothing strange in he would say. I should too if i stayed Here. In t there something i can do to help miss Evans i Venn hour or so to spare. Let me polish that brass i m used to shining up gear on my Auto. I wish you could take a Little spin in it tonight after the Birds Are All asleep. Would then there came a Day when Dick was not so Well. He drooped and pined in his Cage with never n song. Clarita fussed Over him and doctored him for various Bird ailments. But it was of no refused to be merry. Of course he s a very old Clarita said anxiously to James who was wry attentive to _ the invalid. It s probably old age. I Don t think there s much we can do. What a shame that your Mother should t see him i might he suggested but she s five Hundred Miles away. I doubt whether she d come. She will be sorry though. She s really fond of that poor old of course she Clarita said with emphasis. When you do like herds you love them. You Don t understand James Tucker you need t Well i love something else besides he defended that is i love somebody else. It s All right to want to spend your life with Birds but to rather spend mine something in his tone made Clarita turn away quickly. A customer came in just then and she was Busy for an hour or More so his sentence was not finished. However Clarita knew what its ending would have been and she pondered it that night As she sat alone at her window looking out at the stars. She pondered it and a Little soft sigh escaped her. She was very Happy. Bird Dick died the next Day. James came in to find Clarita putting his soft Little body into a Moss lined Box. Poor old said James Tucker. Motherly care we ought to make it up to her somehow. I might buy her another Bird but no Bird could take Dick s place in her affections. I think the very Best Way would be to make her so Happy about something else that she would be distracted. I inc to what to like to asked she thought she knew. Take her a new said James Tucker. What do you say Clarita could t we be married now and break the news about Dick to it would make her so Happy she could t Grieve for him at All.

On the score of his though he was not past redemption at excused various Little quips and quirks in his disposition. Not Only was professor Gray the head of the i greek department of the college1 but As son of one of the leading Ben fac j tors of the College he was one of the i trustees As Well. It was As. A trustee i that his objection on general Pron 1 a pals to Domestic science and House hold arts As part of a College curl cd Lum had thus far successfully blocked the building of the new Domestic science Extension. The Money had been raised for the building but because the site was part of the original Gray bequest. Professor Gray s objection made Progress on the building impossible. No wonder then that Jean Prescott the attractive Young head of such household arts department As there was at Morton was filled with a senti ment toward professor Gray that was As near to that of hatred As any that had Ever entered into her spacious heart. Like most household arts instructors Jean Prescott carried into her classes and Laboratory an air of rare geniality. Professor Gray Seldom carried much geniality into his greek classes and perhaps that was the fault of his boarding House keeper for Gray had got to the Point where having tasteless Coffee and cold Fried eggs for breakfast was getting on his nerves.
