Harriet Elisabeth Beecher Stowe (Jun 14, 1811 – Jul 1, 1896) was an American author and a member of abolitionists movement. She is mostly known for her novel "Uncle Tom's Cabin" (1852), devoted to harshness of life of slaves. This novel has a massive social resonance across US and Britain, provoked slavers’ wrath in the south and fueled anti-slavery-movements in the north. "Mother Magpie’s mischief" is a short story by Harriet Beecher Stowe. The narrative follows Mather Magpie, an elderling living in the forest. She was industrious and always busy, and her business was to know all the others’ business and give everyone advices and directions on how everyone should do it. One day Mr. Bullfrog, an old music teacher came to Mother Magpie, seeking her council. But there was something else on her mind.
