Early spring







 A ROBIN with a broken wing fell into the hands of a twelve-year-old New Hampshire boy. He took it home and cared for it in a vacant attic till it was able to fly, when he took it out in a basket a mile away in the woods, and set it free. The next spring the same bird with a little lop in its wing came and pecked at the window of the boy's house. The boy made a shelf for it outside, in the middle of the window. A nest was soon built by the bird on this shelf, and a brood of birds was successfully reared thereon.
