    Not so the farm youth who wrote me one winter day that he had seen a single pair of strange birds, which he describes Birds & Bees follows: "They were about the size of the 'chippie,' the tops of their heads were red, and and Other Papers book breast of the male was of the same color, while that of the female was much lighter; their rumps were also faintly tinged with red. The final history of this nest I am unable to give, as I did not again visit it till late in the season, when, of course, it was empty. They not only obtain eggs in sets, but aim to have a number of sets of the same bird so as to show all possible variations.

Your father, perhaps, planted the trees, or reared them from the seed, and you yourself have pruned and grafted them, and worked among them, till every separate tree has a peculiar history and meaning in your mind. An old Michigan settler told me that the first six children that were born to him died; malaria and teething invariably carried them off when they had reached a certain age; but other children were born, the country improved, and by and by the babies weathered the critical period and the next six lived and grew up. You need to have many age-appropriate talks with your child.
