WHT a oruel thing it is to rob
a bird's nest. It is the bird's
b house. The father and mother
and little children dwell there; and
what a shame it is to disturb them
and break up their curious houe.
But not a word can the bird
ay; it is dumb, and its little het
may break, but it cannot coe'
plain. I mean it cannot complain'
to you; but there is One who
hoir the meaning of every sr-
rowi chirp it gives. God, w4ha
