It was a beautiful scene as wo
turned nnd looked back over the val

fresh. On ono sldo of us rose the.
wooded hills now turning yellow In
tho hazy ntmosphoro of an early au

ful valley -with Its flcldB of ripening
grain, waving peacefully in the gentle
breezes looking Ilko so many fields
of gold. While here and thero
scattored among tho meadows " nnd
flolds woro largo rambling farm
houses, surrounded by groves of fruit
trees. On tho other sldo a sparkling
river wove In and out among tho low

ground tho white-tipped mountains
towered above the peacerul llttlo val
