Harrisville, Ohio, who recently
visited Dr. and Mrs. O. A. Hess

Mr. Morris is on an extensive
tour through this country and
Canada and the letter was writ

Mount Hood, what a feeling
of awe you inspired as I stood
upon your rocky side six thou
sand feet above sea level, and
gazed in wonder at your snow
capped peak, peering out above
thexclouds hundreds of feet
above me. How insignificant
mere man seems in the pres
ence of such evidence of the
mighty work of the Great
Architect of the Universe.
What an almighty force it
must have been to raise this
gigantic mountain so far above
the bosom of Mother Earth,
that its sides are mantled with
perpetual snows. How incom
parable she stands in her silent
beauty, and how terrible a men
ace she would be should her
internal fires become lighted
through volcanic action of her
internal organization. May her
activity never be aroused to
mar the face of her beautiful
sides and disturb the happy in
habitants at her feet. What a
wonderland she is to the bot
anist who finds unusual beauty
in her plant life, and to the ge
ologist who knows that ndr'bug
life is so different from any
east of the Rockies. And let
us not forget the manVith the
microscope who discovers her
hidden beauties in depths that
the human eye cannot pene
trate unaided; and still the hid
den wonders of Mt. Hood are
not all revealed. What a god

what a force is within the
grasp of man when her dash

streams are harnessed and util
The mountains of our coun
try are all beautiful, each in its
own way; but any person is
fully justified in a trip across
the continent for one sight of
Mount Hood, not considering
the fascination of spending a
night in the open on her grassy
slopes, and lulled to sleep by
one of her little cascades and
the soothing odor from her pine

air, and to be awakened in the

and bird life, just as the sun’s
