. Around an old homestead; a book of memories. Huston, Paul Griswold; Farm life; Natural history. 22 AROUND AN OLD HOMESTEAD. lawn, 'tis a place for archery; a spot, too, for box- wood hedges and a sundial. Croquet, however, has had its innings as the favorite outdoor amusement, and. "wild flowers and ferns.' many a stiff game of quoits has been pitched across the sward with horseshoes. Waxwings build their nests amid the cedar boughs that brush the house; a bluebird yearly has its home in the hollow limb of a dead sweet cherry; the little nests of song sparrows are well concealed there among the blaclcberries; and English sparrov/s chirp and twitter about the eaves, and long straws from their nests hang from the corners. In the days cardinals and robins and many other beautifully colored birds come whis- ling and fluting about it; toward nightfall swallows dart and soar above, and bats flutter and girate to and fro, while katydids rasp away in the maples, and the crickets drone out in the fields; and later, in the dusky places, the whip-poor-wills and screech owls cry, while round about whispers the never-ending soughing of the pines and spruces..
