To the editor: Canaries sing incessantly. For someone desiring absolute peace and quiet, they are by no means the ideal pet. But if we would hear the “Song of Life,” a canary is essential.
I understand early coal miners carried canaries underground with them. A break in their song or one found dead in his cage indicated the presence of noxious fumes and the possibility of a lethal explosion. When the canaries stopped singing, the miners quickly got out of the mine.
