"A Good Bakery"
(By AMY ELIZABETH CARSON)
Having been ased to write concern
ing the trip which I enjoyed this
c.ramer I 3li.il make the attempt,
although in s me respects my vooa'iu
lary seenn '.nadequate to enable n.e
to express tUngs as( clearly as they
Two mountain? which especially

Ly the most ckisic literary artlits
are the majesl'c ML Hood and Mf.
Adams. I bcleve that no mounU n
reaks can jxcei these two In beauty
end dignity, like two virgins clad
in raiments of white they tower above
the other mountains which surround
The Columbia river is also no less
worthy of words of praise and appre
ciation, and although my effort at the
expression of such praise falls far
short of what I would desire, I shall
write the words which came to me
while the train was speeding along
thehores of that beloved stream.
The Columbia River
Oh, thou mighty Columbia.
Flowing down from the north to the
With Mt. Hood gleaming rose in the
I proffer my tribute to thee.
Only God with infinite foresight
"nuld create thy marvelous plan.
Winding onward bf.twen hills
thou bafflcst the wisdom of man.
The music of thy flowing waters
Is deeper, more simple to me
Than the rarest nocturne of Chopin.
Could he vie with the genius of thee?
Thine impressive calm and thy gran
deur. Thy statellness, bigness and power
Enthrall me. entrance me. and hold
As I gaze on thee hour to hour.

Thanking God for this gift sublime.
I was also much Impressed by the
magnificence and grandeur of the
Rocky mountains and by the brilliance
and richness of her many colored
streams and lakes. The rushing
water falls were also delightful.
There is surely an urgent call from
the wildness and vastness of these
mountains which the lover of nature
cannot resist, and the picturesque
summer resorts at the eastern and
western entrances to the Glacier
National park are very Inviting to
people wno wisn to lose inemseives
from the hurry and stir of city life,

beholding a distant horizon with no
tree life to break the monotony.
' Wisconsin is also a progressive
farming state, but unlike North
Dakota, it Is blest with wooded hills.
It is a delight to the eye to stand
upon one of Wisconsin's rolling hills
and behold in every direction pros
perous homes, rich farms, and wood
lands. The summers there are beau
tiful and the autumn harvest abun
dant. The leaves of the trees are
a riot of color during the latter part
of September and the first q
I have expressed something of this
in a very rugged poem of mine:
The Tree' Gala Day
The soul of the Autumn
And the brilliance of trees
Are calling to me today.
And my spirit is stirred
By the falling of leaves.
And the Thrushe's chirping lay.
Ked and purple, and yellow and blue.
Orange and green of every hue.
Lavendar, crimson, come floating
In a riot of leaves as we drive to
From every hill I hear the cry
Of a thousand trees as I pass by:
"Behold us now In our brilliant array!
Our leaves may be gone ere another
B." hold us now ere cur branches bare
Stand crim and naked midst frosty
Tl;e Autumn is here our gala day.
Behold us dressed, in our royal array!
"Oh. we cry to you from every h'll.
rnr cry goes deep yi;ur soul to thrill.
We"e delving down In your spirit too,
chord responsive to find In you."
The blue in the sky In a fr'endly way

The lizy team in the dusty road
Plod dreaming on with its l'stjess
The flaming sumacs call and call.
And the hickory, while her sweet
The oak, the maple, the other trees
Call ever to us thru falling leaves.
While speaking of the beauties cf

'it The Dells, Wisconsin, most famous
"uminer resort. As many as 55.000
-eople visit this resort In a single

as thtfy stand carved by nature.
Then there Is the steam boat, and the
fleet. Concerning all these there are
suitable legends. The one concern
ing the fleet Is especially Interesting.
It Is a story of IV Sota In which the
Indians have said that upon entering
the Wisconsin river D Sota did
something which offended their gods,
and In consequence of which De Sola's
entire fleet Immediately turned to
Mono and remained thus even to this
If any of our townspeople ever v's!t
the state of Wisconsin, a visit to The
Dells will surely repay them.
As Wisconsin Is the home of my
birthplace I shall write here a poem
wh'ch I wrote while visiting my
childhood home. It Is entitled:
The. early I flight deepens Into
The (liivkenlng shadows lengthen in
The smell of fragrant clover fills the
And pensive quiet falling every

Wli'le distant thunder rolls along the

And human voices break into my

The lightning brings wake quickly

As night advances silently o'er all
A strange and melancholy brooding
fills my being.

Many of my father's relative live
there. The piles of refuse from 300
to 600 feet high at the large coal
mines resembled, at a distance, the
ancient pyramids of Egypt.
As my work was confined almost
solely to Wisconsin, Illinois, und
Iowa, I was naturally more Interested
in the beauty and industry of these
states than of any others.

In social life I observed with some
thing akin to grief the pro (lei man
sentiment along the eastern h-.c
of the Mississippi; the extremely low
standard of morals among our voting
people; the quest loinilile places of
amusement abounding everywhere;
ami the low spiritual ebb in the life
of the churches.

of Just as grave concern In America
today as either the political or latter
In speaking of my own spec ial work
I wish to say that I have enjoyed It
very much. I was not able to cover
all the territory which I wished to
cover, however. Time pauses so
quickly and there Is so much to do
that one finds It difficult to traverse
much territory within a short time.
Sometimes my audiences were large
and sometimes small, but I usually
felt that my entertainments were
