However, this state
ment is not entirely correct, since
there are real mountains in this
portion of Norway, while about
that section ol the United States we
had mentioned there are only hills.
I will not engage in detailed de
scription ol Christiania or any of
the other cities, as that would be an
interfeience with the rights of the
makers of encyclopedias and guide
books, and I fear would not be very
interesting. Cbiistianta has its old
Viking ship, rescued from former
centuries, a beautiful museum and
public buildings, and tbe Nobel In
stitute The English language is
spoken by a very large portion ol
the population, and no one finds
difficulty, iu »• ing about, as in
quiries are always courteously ans
wered. Many of the public build
ings are as modern as though found
in the United States, and this much
can be said of the principal hotel,
known as the Grand.
AFTER THE BA TTLE
Sing banners and cannon and roll of drum!
The shouting of men and the marshaling!
Lo! cannon to cannon and earth struck dumb!
Oh, battle, in song, is a glorious thing!
^ Oh, glorious day
Oh, godlike man
riding down to the fight!
battle in story and song!
to die for the right!
God to revenge the wrong!
Yea, riding to battle, on battle day—
Why a soldier is something more than a king!
But after the battle? The riding away?
Ah, the riding away is another thing!
