Smith s Dic Tinory of the Bible volume Iii., Page 1375. London quarterly review. Mountaineering so great an abundance of material a or study and thought is there in the Alps in the geological vegetable and animal worlds that it would Well occupy it life of observation and Reading. On the glaciers alone a whole literature a whole Branch of science has bean bestowed. As Ever moving and changing a Gunla of vast geologic movements they possess an interest which perhaps no Othor natural Force but volcanoes whereas volcanoes arc singularly capricious and hear hardly any personal examination Ghiors Are of All the mundane forces among the most constant and tho most accessible. There is something about the ambiguous character of glaciers half solid half fluid that is very fascinating. There is something so difficult to grasp in the scan of huge tracts of Earth As Broad and lofty perhaps As Oile of our a English Mountain ranges yet heaving and working with All the ceaseless life of an Ocean. To the experienced observer the Glacier seome to have its Waves its tides amp and its currents like a sea both in its surface and dowry to its Basin in no other Mode can to the heaving of the Earth a Crest visibly and the machinery of geologic change in actual operation. And it is this Union of vast extent Frith movement of Force and vitality which makes the study of tho Glacier so Ever fresh and so impressive to the merest scrambler As to tho Man of science. A glaciers As is Well known form but one Branch of tho Alpine studies. The animal Branch is naturally the least abundant in material but in that it possesses the Mark of specially its retaining yet in the mid flt of Europe some traces of Long bygone animal eras. But the vegetation at once affords tho matter for first rate investigation. If other spots in tho world offer More extraordinary types there Are perhaps no regions in Europe where in so Small an area such a varying series of climates and consequently of plants can be seen. But quite apart from the Richness or Beauty of its Flora or its Fauna an Alp offers a Peculiar character to All observation the conditions under which both exist Are for the most part so special that both fill the least observant with new suggestions. There is a poetry and a pathos in an Alpine Rose or Gentian As to see it the sole organic thing amid vast inorganic masses the Solo link of life Between us and the most Gigantic forms of matter. At Home tho brightest of Birds or insects scarcely awakens a thought in a Summers walk but a Stout Many a heart and even Eye May be softened by tho sight but of a poor stranded Bee blown Forth arid shipwrecked amid those pitiless solitudes. In All the Cor Static Phenomena the Alps As is Well known take the first rank As tho observatories of science. It is As difficult for the student to fail of ideas in their midst As for the most heedless tourist to mail to learn something. The great physical forces form there the very conditions of existence. The Meriest scrambles gets to record something of atmospheric facts and Changos. And hero it is but fair to. Say that Alpine climbers in general and the Alpine club in particular Liana or Iutin a vow us fat la 1. J i no left All-110 null t. Soi Euce and even in some cases to dec Teucher proper. It is simply ridiculous to suggest that most of them climb with any scientific purpose any More than men Hunt to improve the Breed of Boes. But it is the special value of Alpine climbing that it combines a great variety of objects. And whereas some men pursue it for health for exercise for Mere adventure or enjoyment for the wonderful exhilaration it affords for the poetry for the solemnity and the purity of the emotions it awakens some find there the richest Field for to Leif serious labors and nearly All find to Minoh that gives matter for profitable thought. Indeed a ground which if to Many it is but one of recreation Dud rest has been the Syshe of the studies of the Saussure is the a assizes the to Aumont the Forbses Titi tend us the Huxley the the suiders the Berlepsch must be one which offs equal Promise for every mind und every it is tit after All is being Rich in science nor simply As being Lovely in scenery that the Alps Are chiefly marked. It is More that they Furiat us it were an epitome of Earth and place before As it tho Range of a summer Days walk every form off natural object Aud production in the most striking and immediate contrast. Within a few hours after leaving the Moat terrible forms of ruin desolation and Solitude whore no life id found and Man can remain Bat for a <6w hours the traveler is in the midst of All the luxuriant loveliness of italian or alleys and lakes basking in an almost tropical heat surrounded by tho most delicate Flowers ferns and shrubs and charmed into Mere test by even varied landscapes softer and Riore fairy like than Turner Ever Drew. Indeed alter some weeks of rough work amid the glaciers it is impossible to resist the emotion of grateful Delight with which one recognizes the overflowing Richness of this Earth amid the sights the sounds the perfumes and the myriad sensations of pleasure with which life on the italian lakes is full. To Onorati taste these wholly who has not Home the heat and Burden of the Day the toil and cold of tho Alpine regions. Then Only is one Able to Soo tho glory and profusion of nature As a whole and to conceive in Oue of thought and feel but As one manifold sensation All that she has most strange and most Beautiful from the Arctic zone to tho tropic3.�? Westminster review \ butter. Next to bread comes butter on which we have to say that whoa to remember what butter is in civilized Europe and compare it with what t is in America to wonder at the forbearance and Lenity of travellers in their strictures on our National commissariat. Butter in England a Ranco and Italy is simply solidified Nara with All the sweetness of Cream in its taste freshly churned every Day and unadulterated by Salt. At the present moment when Salt is five cents a Pound and Buiter fifty to americans Are paying i should judge from tho taste for about one Pound of Salt to every the of butter and those of us who have eaten to butter of of naive and England do this win rueful recollection. La Here is it is True an article of butter made in the America Iscyle with Salt which in us own Why has a Merit not inferior to thut of England and francs. Prefer it and Stoer Tauly tikes a rank equally respectable with tho Otylior. It is yellow Haid and worked Quot so perfectly free from every particle of Buttermilk Liat it might make the voyage of tho world without sniffing. It is salted but salted with care Utida delicacy so that it May to question whether Cven n fastidious englishman might nit prefer its Golden solidity to the White creamy freshness of his own. Now i am not fer Universal imitations of foreign customs and where i find this butter made perfectly t Call it our american style and am not Asl med of it., i Only regret that a this article is the exception and not tho Rule on our tables when i reflect on the possibilities which beset the delicate stomach in this line. I do not wonder that my venom to Friend or. Mussel used to close his Roumels to invalids with the a direction a a and done to eat grease 011 your bread.�?�. America must i think have the credit of manufacturing and putting into Market More bad butter than All that is made in nil the the world together. The Vari Eues of bad tastes and smelts which prevail in it Are quite a Sti Idy. This has a cheesy taste that a Mouldy this is i adored with ebb ago and that again with turnip and another has n Strong Sharp savor of rancid animal these varieties i presume come from the practice of churning Only at Long intervals and keeping tho Cream meanwhile in uni ventilated cellars or dairies the air of which is loaded with tho effluvia of vegetable substances. T no Domestic articles Are so sympathetic a those of the milk tribe they readily take on the smell and taste of any neighbouring substance and hence the infinite variety of flavors on which one mournfully muses who has late in autumn to taste Twenty Firkins of butter in Hopes of finding Ono which will simply not to intolerable on his Winter matter for despair As regards Hue butter is that it stands Sentinel at the door to bar your Way to ovor5 other kind of food. You turn from your dreadful half slice of bread which fills your Mou h with bitterness to your Beefsteak which proven virulent with the same Poison you think to take Refuge in vegetable diet and find the butter in the string Beans and polluting the innocence of Narv Oeast it is.

A than said to myself a Why should i endure this torture All my life to no purpose ? i would Bear it still if there was any Progress made and Success to to hoped for but since there is not i will die quietly without taking any move doses. I have tried my very utmost Puiul find that i must be As awkward As a Bear All my life in spite of it. I will Endeavor to think As Little about it As a Bear and Tonako up my mind to endure what cannot to from this time i struggled As vigorously to Harden myself against censure As Ever i had to avoid it like a Stag at Bay who faces about to fight when he finds that flight is vain and with As much Effort As the said Stag for it is not without n hard and persevering struggle that Coris Cious Ness can to shaken off. I was acting More wisely than i thought for at tho time for i had not Thon that dear View of tho. Subject that i now have and consequently i succeeded beyond Ziy expectations for i not Only got rid of tho personal suffering of shyness but also of most of those faults of manner consciousness produces and acquired at onco an easy and natural manner careless indeed in the extreme from its originating in astern Defiance of opinion which i had convinced myself must Ever be against me rough and awkward for smoothness and Grace arc quite out of my Way and of course tutoring Fly Pedantic but unconscious and therefore giving expression to that Good will toward men which i really feel and these i believe Are the main what cuts commonplace Book.
