When the buds are all a-bustin’ an’
the woods a-gettin’ green,
An’ the little lambs a-friskin’ round
‘bout big enough to wean,
When the robins and the medder larks
in singin’ matches meet,
An’ the robin gets red in the face a-
tryin’ hard to beat.
Ah, then my heart’s so happy it’s most
allus in a laugh,
Like a yearling colt a-snortin’ an’ a- |
kickin’ at the calf,
An’ I feel almost as lovin’ as a girl of
seventeen, :
When the buds are all a-bustin’ and
the woods a-turnin’ green.
There’s somein’ kind o’ softenin’
about the time o’ spring
That makes a fellow feel like he could
love most anything.
When the shiny-featured cockerels are
steppin’ ‘round so pert,
A-braggin’ to the cluckin’ hens an’
scratchin’ in the dirt, :
An’ a courtin’ of the pullets till they
cackle in delight,
When the turtle doves are cooin’ and
the roosters showin’ fight, en
Oh, it makes my heart go pit-a-pat at
such a purty scene, ;
When the buds are a'l a-bustin’ and
the woods a-turnin’ green.
There’s a kind o’ lovin’ tenderness a-
broodin’ in the air,
An’ a hintin’ to a feller when the birds
". begin to. pair,
When the pigeons are a whirlin’ and a
~cirelin’ in the sky,
An’ the | struttin’ gobbler watches
madame turkey on the sly.
Then I git a happy lonesomeness a-
leanin’ on the fence,
An’ a-wishin’ for somebody a-comin’
from the ‘whence,’
For my feelin’s git to buzzin’ like the
bees without a queen,
‘When the buds are all a-bustin’ and
the woods a-turnin’ green.
Kntws Time to Get Up More Accur-
ately Than Tin Trinket.
Owensville, Ind.—Jeff Clarke, a far-
mer of Wabash township, owns a mule
that plays the part of an alarm clock
every morning with such regularity
that ‘Clarke has about discarded the
litt’e alarm clock that hangs on the
bed-post, and firmly refuses to part
with ‘the animal.
Promptly at 4 o'clock this mule
kicks the side of the barn four times
in succession. At first Clarke thought
the animal was ill, and for several
mornings he got up and investigated.
He took note, however, that the gong
of the alarm clock started buzzing
when the mule started kicking. He
put two and two together and reached
the conclusion that the mule knows
the hour when the Clarke household
should arise and begin the day’s work.
Smoker Sets Forest Fire.
Chambersburg, Pa.—When a careless
smoker dropped a cigar in the woods

hundred and fifty
worth $800, were burned over.

victions behind them. ‘Both are

Much Loot Is Lccated.

and a satchel] belonging to the rob
bers, from which they recovered $26,
000 in stampsa.. In one was found
‘what detectives say is the most elabor-
ate and highly finished set of burg
lar's tools they have ever seen.
More interesting yet was a manu
script showing that the compiler had
in mind a whelesale raid on Southern
and Western banks. Hundreds of
banks were listed and with them ap-
peared the names and addresses of
the treasurers, cashiers, janitors, their
habits, and their hours. There was

at Nashville, Tenn.
Postoftice inspectors later found the
fifth trunk and in it recovered $17,000
worth of.stamps. This trunk was
found at the Pennsylvania railroad
station at Cortlandt street, and was
taken to police headquarters, where
the other trunks.are. This makes
$73,000 worth of the stamps that the
authorities have recovered out of the |
885,000 worth stolen.

Statistics Show More Births Than
Deaths Among the Red Men,
‘Washington, D. C.—The Indian has
at least paused In his passing from
the face of the earth, if the statistics
concerning - births and deaths among
about one-third of the Indian popula-
tion in the United States, which have
just been compiled by the Bureau of
Indian Affairs, can be accepted as a
criterion of the general condition of
the red race. During the fiscal year
there were 3,395 births and 31178
deaths among 101,717 Indians.
An official of the Bureau of Indian
Affairs said that an improvement was -
shown in general, in that the red
man had not lost any ground from the
standpoint of numbers, as compared
with a decrease in the past which has
reduced the Indian population to its
present relatively small figure.
It was estimated that there were
300,545 Indians in the United States,
exclusive of Alaska, during the last
fiscal year. ;
