sun gives on ly a glimpse of summer in July Competition with other points is of course not severe in such regions but the birches must struggle against weather They can live and multiply if oaly thoy can ad just themselves to the conditions of life They must keep down their size they must carry as little foliage as possible and their stems must oe tough enough to resist snow and hardy enough to withstand almost per petual frost Their years growth must bo finished in a very short time aud leaves flowers and seeds must fellow in tho most rapid succession In short there is room for birch trees hero if only the trees can be reduced to their lowest terms And so birch trees have crept up the mountainsides even to the very edges of tho perpetual snow But such trees All trees requiring sunshine or long time for their sumuiers growth are rigidly kept away by natural The cold climate dwarfs the individual and the hard conditions exclude every individ ual not dwarfed I have before mo throe

officials have included hun dreds of small towns in the category of country villages and expelled Jews from them by tons of thousands who will thus be rendered homeless These laws known as tho May

The Perils and Romance of Whaling From a beautifully illustrated article in The Century for August on The Perils and Romance of we quote as follows The whalemen especially have been the sinews of the American navy Inured to danger by a calling in which the chances were as desperate as those of battle they stepped from the whaleboat to tho manof war simply to face a foe of a different kind no baptism under fire before they could face an enemy without flinching arid when they responded to their countrys call they Rrimly each hostile ship the old whaling motto Dead whale or stove Such was the spirit of tho American whalemen and it still survives not only among the veterans of tho craft but also among their descendants though the whaling industry Itseif has dwindled to insignificance Tho Nantucket boy who ties a fork to his mothers darning cotton and then tries to cat yelling as the latter makes its escape Pay out mother Pay out There she sounds through theWin dow certainly of tho boat stocrer who was his sire Then too we find in the vernacular of tho old whaling ports even among the younger delightful relicsof the whalers idioms The railroad train ties a wagon is a sidewheel and you are requested to or leeward according as the sides need trimming Where are you heading for is tho question Invariably asked of If you are met out walking you learn that your veteran whaleman neighbor qt last summerdied in in a the farmer lands his produce at your quarter galleries meaning in this in stance the rear kitchen but also applied to that modern accessory of feminine attire the

that probably the postmistress battened down the hatches and gone To means to gossip The word occurs and in the logbooks of the old whalers The un initlatedj might suppose It signified merely focastle Bur to the old whaleman it has afar deeper meaning j When the whalemen met on the high SUMS thousands of miles from home they would lay to sometimesfor hours CHptnins and would exchange Visits from and forborne be delivered and the story of the voyages told was a One vessel often brought to another the first news from honie in two years Mean while however a year had elapsed since1 the vessel last from port left her moorings and at least another year would pass before the homewardbound crew would sight their native shoreNo wonder the young captain as his home harbor hove in sight eagerly scanned the crowd upon the wharf through his marine glass until it reawd perhaps upon a fair face full of expectation Gamming is indeed a relic of one of the most romantic and perhaps pathetic phases otthe whalers life Every vessel that sailed carried messages to rela tives and friends thousandsof miles away and every vessel that came toher moorings broughttidings of cheer or sorrow from the distant seas A wifo have the letter which she had written to her husband two years before returned to her because his vestol hadnot been alas she had notbeen spoken by any of the vessels tuat had returned Time would only deepen of her husbands fate and perhaps the wife would never know whether the ship was cast upon one of theislands of the Pacific and the crew massacred by the savage inhabitants or split upon asunken reef and en gulfed with all hands and so she would sifc weeping in her lonely chamber while her neighbors over tide return1 of a son father lover or and the the songs
