The men who work around the Yardmaster’s Office of the Berlin Mills Railway vowed for that the other day. Hopping along the tracks was this toad, pictured in the hand of Albert Dube. Now toads usually hole up in winter and spend their days dead to the world. But when a recent warm spell hit, this one yawned, figured spring was here and began looking around for dinner. Toads, pansies, transplanting trees! We should borrow some of California’s publicity posters.
