Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 6, 1921, Lethbridge, Alberta TIlimSDAT.. JANUARY 6. 1921 THE LgTHBRIIMlii PAHT HCTtALP TURKS Odd Pieces of Furniture By Using A READERS JOURNAL (By "Altai Let us picture to ourselves the fol- lowing scene: "A youth Is seated beside the water- bed of one nf the umnerous coulees of Southern Alberta. Hcfore him lies a fossil fish, which ho has just un- earthed with a liSiw of his pick as ho begun a shallow woll in tho gravol. is a bright summer day, the rich of the coulee grass shades off tho browner herbage of tho upper banks; In the distance a clump of fcerry-bushos bravely makes its stand afalnut a ieml-arld climate. Blfni ot civilisation aro evident; a barbed wire fonco rum clone by, the xmoke from tbu brick chimney ot a frame house curls upward, Juat over the hill peeps the glaring galvanized Iron of a gralu elevator. But the youth his forgotten the very existence those things; he Is in deep abstrac- tion, causoil by the Finding of tho fos- sil fish; ho Is far back In pre-historlc times, when this fragment of stone before him wag a living, breathing, active thing. A moment before, tho prairie hud beeu a now country, with I no past, unless it ware for tho trivial wanderings of nomadic tribes. Now hud been admitted to a revelation of its earlier history, and he had found it overpowering. He conjured .up a vision of tie fish as it swam VALUABLE DOCUMENTS Bonds, insurance policies and other val- uable documents should not be kept at feqjne where' they are likely to be lost or mislaid.

He thought of tli9 gradual chemical change, tho replace- ment of flesh and bone by silica cry- stals, while the loose sand was being converted into rock. Then he imag- ined the cosmic changes; the nnheav- al of the sandstone mass in which the fish lay Imbedded; then the great glacier that swept over the rock masses, taking huge of sand- stone to the south-west, and freeing thin particular fossil from Its matrix, though still carrying it along with the moralnal material it was gather- ing.

This la a Birthday, a natal day, not the anniversary of his own physical birth, but the day in which a sixth sense is born, the historical conscious- ness. All tiip facts have been known before, but they existed in his mind 1 as inert and unrelated truths. Now, through the agency of a 'simple inci- dent, this knowledge had become sig- nificant, alive, had combined into .a new creation, and new vaults and fac- ulties of the mind have first been, ex- plored and employed. Henceforth relics of paleontology are of intense interest, history takes on a new and more powerful meaning, and a piece of chalk or a lump of coal may reveal a universe of wonder and interest." I wonder how many have an exper- ience of this kind. Some seem to be born with the Instinct for unearthing things historical, the boy seemed to be able to transport him- self In mind and language to UE ear- lier epoch with no difficulty. It is an Interesting subject to investigate. vJust as different plays require ad- versity of settings, BO different kinds of reading require a diversity of prep- aration and environment. Your en- trancing light novel may be read any- where or at any time; it gains such a grasp over the reader's faculties that he is oblivious to the whole world of surroundings, be they as tumultuous as Bedlam. Nor Is this only true of the novel, anything which intensely draws the reader may 'be road and enjoyed without regard to surroundings. For example, a professor with a penchant for archaic English might be able to enjoy an Anglo-Saxon grammar in a rtvettlng shop or a departmental store, or any other unlikely place for study. To a large extent, however, we arc limited In our study by exter- nal conditions. Anything requiring earnest application, unless supported i by the strong interest suggested above, is disturbed 'and nullified by f j any distracting circumstance. Soli, tilde is no doubt the ideal condition for serious reading. From this It might be Inferred that the deepest study should be carried on in natural surroundings; on the prairie-, in some secluded nook of the woods, by the bank of some coulee. Personally, I have not found it so. For some rea- son, a book seems irrelevant in Nat- ure. The magic of the black-and-white page Is eclipsed by the grander forms around us, and we are reminded that, after all, books are but petrified por 1 tlons of Nature, which is here before] us In living form. It is for some reason to glance from the perfection of the heavens, blue sky and the crystal clouds, to the conv paratlve failure of man's work on the printed page. I do not expect open-air schools to become popular, unless the text book be abolished., and nature substituted. Some peculiar effects are gained when reading is done to the accom- paniment of music. If the music is: in concord with the spirit of the book, its effect Is greatly enhanced and magnified. Two senses are appealed to at the same moment, and the re- suit Is exhilarating. On the other hand, some books seem to need an in- A Heraldi Want Ad. carries your mes- sage to the eyes of thousands of people every day.

There are some books that may be approached only at chosen moments. Wordsworth, Milton, Shelley are a trio that will only yield their treasure to the sym- pathetic humor.

So writes Em- erson in "Works and Days." Some books of a very different order require a certain temper to enjoy; booka of satire. Don Quixote, Tartarln of Tarascon, and the other Tartarin romances, together with the works of Swift for example. At times Don Quixote positively makes me roar with laughter.
