Maybe in the last few weeks you havs^ had some dreams of spring woods in Ontario. Probably Archibald Lamp-man's Incomparable pooms of Ontario woods have been ringing in your ears. There is shiniiiiv of flowers In tho deep, wet wood.s In the heart of the sensitive solitudes The roseate bell and the c(y are tiiere, And every leaf of tholr sheaf is fair. .Michigan' woods are very fair, but last week when 1, visited Ontario ami went to see the woods that brought U3 up, I felt no others could ever take, their place. Tiiere tlicy lie just the same as wlien we first discovered tliem, Kvery little hollow and streum-let brought back happy memories, gojtiehow 1 like to think in Paradise we will find'these dear familiar places as we found them long ago.

Those braiicboa end these days in the tenderest greou in till creation, and sweep the flowing water wilh fairy teiulrils. ThrouRli the turnstile gate 1 passed ' into the old pasturo and there ahead j of mo were liie "delectable hills," i tllOBo baby hills, treo crowned and misty hued. Far away from roads tucked away in Iho behind land they re, and only wood-iuad folk and ohlldran wander^ down their hill-sldos.

What was my surprise to see In the distance a lady clothed In snow white. 1 liusiied my steps, ii feeling of superstitious awe stole over me, when suddenly I laughed aloud, it was a iittie treo in feathery blooin. Against the gloom of the wood shi' started me, I'p, up I idiiniied, friendiy i)ranciios stretching out lielping hands while rude little prickly ones detained me, and now as the sunilglit siarted to grow stronger and there were clear openings in the trees, I came on carpets of may flowers, like bits of sea shell, with their uredescent colorings.
