bad the gift of speech ! What deeds

just speak and give up the dead, how
many mysteries would be solved, both
of murders and suicides. We called
at Collin's Hot Springs, Stevensou,
tbe Cascade Locks, a most excellent
piece of work and many wonder how
these great leviathans of tbe water are
to pass through. Two large gates at
each end of tbe leeks ares construct
ed to bold tbe water at bay while tbe
boat is lowered or hoisted. Tbe gates
are worked or moved by hydraulic
power and seem to be just as easy gu
lug to sleep in an arm chai. . We pass
ou through tbe rapids, the only place
where it seems dangerous to me, but
the oaptain of tbe boat knows tbe
course to take. We pass on and as we
look out on either side there are
mountains most majestio and grand to
look upon, and we are leminded cf
what tbe palmist said: "Tbe heavens
declare the glory ot Cod and tbe
firmament shewed His handiwork."
We not ioe tbe water falls at various
