THE MOCKING-BIRD'S SONG.
This little song of springtime was noted from the singing of a Tigua girl of the pueblo of Isleta, N. M., by my honoured and lamented friend and co­worker, Professor John Comfort Fillmore. It tells the story of the semi-arid region where it was born.
Rain, people, rain!
The rain is all around us.
It is going to come pouring down,
And the summer will be fair to see,
The mocking-bird has said so.
