for a block in front of his store one
morning recently when he arrived at
work. He didn't have to look far
for the reason. Written in femiliar
white letters across the window was:
"Beefsteak, 32 cents* a pound; pork
chops, 21 cents; Big Sale Today."

BIRD CLUB NOTES *
Marian Corbitt read about the
black skimmer Saturday morning at
Bird club. H is a large, long-winged
bird, black above and white beneath.
The bill Of this bird is most unique,
both mandibles being thin and flat
like a-knife-blade, which come to
gether edgewise. The under one is
an inch longer khan the upper, * and
this is pushed forward under the*
water as 'the > skimmer with open
mouth flies along the sea looking
for the small animal life upon which
it feeds. They never go inland, nor
do they travel very far to sea. When
skimmers first appear -in spring a
long sopthern beaches, they coiye in
flocks of hundreds or even thous
ands. At this season they are very
reBtless .and the flocks are continu
ally taking flight from one be aril "or
bar to another, with their 'shouts
fairly drowning the roar of the surf.
Their nesting places are situated
on sand spits running out from
contmuea through' b
on North Waveriy Street
