Bird Houses and How to Build Them

Description: "A few years ago only four species were commonly regarded as house birds -- the house wren, the bluebird, the tree swallow, and the martin. Since the movement to protect birds and make neighbors of them began, however, their natures and needs have become better understood, and it is now known that many other species will avail themselves of houses constructed for them by their human friends. The practice of erecting bird houses in this country, while now nation-wide, is not so common and uniformly distributed as it should be, and more extended provisions of this nature can not fail to result in a largely increased number of house birds." -- p. 2

Collection and Preservation of Plant Material for Use in the Study of Agriculture

Description: "The purpose of this bulletin is to suggest methods of collecting, preparing, mounting, and preserving plant specimens of various sorts which can be used by teachers of agriculture. To instructors in agriculture who have had special training along these lines, doubtless many of the suggestions here given will seem superfluous; but there are many teachers who are called upon to teach agriculture who have not had such training, and who will doubtless welcome specific information as to how to prepare the materials needed for illustration and demonstration purposes in the classroom." -- title page
