This through the the Morgantown bird of fal] and of it will Examine these lots that the jays or crimson conifers. that set off the bird. reflect the The blue jay is a hoarder of food, I suspect. The literature doasu't have much to say on this subject other than the blue jay takes green acorns from oaks and carries them off. Like other acorn feeders, the squirrels, and the western acorn woodpecker, I imagine the jay does its part in storing acorns, the most of which may be forgotten. Acorns happen to be one of the jays' choice foods. When acorns are available the jays will not spend much time at feeders. Aside from its contradictory behavior pattern of being beth a gentleman and a glutton at the feeder, the jay adds one more dimension, it is a self-appointed guardian of the area.

DELBERT L. DAVIDSON Mayor An 1862 report from the newly formed United States Department of Agriculture noted that on three out of four farms, "The wife works harder, endures more, than any other on the place." The author suggested that the farm mother "Should train her daughters for marriaeeand her sons in giving their wives proper treatment." Helmets of leather, bronze, brass, iron, or steel were worn by fighting men from the earliest times until the introduction of gunpowder in the 17th century brought an end to armored combat. Yet it was firearms that caused helmets to be reintroduced in World War I, the National Geographic Society points out, and today most armies issue helmets of steel or tough plastics.
