ONCE upon a time, the leaves of
the silver poplar were green

poplar tree was a nice proper tree just

The leaves all laughed and declared
they never, never, never wanted to be
green again, so the fairy painters set
to work with their magic paint and
soon the leaves were grayish green
on top and silver underneath.
When all was done and the paints
carefully put away the leaves shook

kept ever on tho move, or ready to bo

whom ho comes Into contact Is expected
to be as Interested In everything as ho
His son, tho Crown Prince, Is not more
typically tho tactless, hustling, grandiose

Hohenzollern than is tho Kaiser. All
things nr plain to him, not excepting the
mysterious ways of I'rovldenco; all ex
teptlng the buffrngettes. He udmlts that
he does not understand them.
Why, In heaven's name, do women
want the vote? ho usks, and he threaten
ed one charming suffragist whom he met
at Kiel, and who promised a Mirrr.n?iut
InvaMon of Uerlln, that If the I'ankhurst '

The Kal.-er Is not an altogether dls
BKrecable person. Fur from it More
than once he has paid tribute to the
beauty and attraction of the English

framed and hung In his room; his fuvor

for his tea, ho worships Jtevnolds and

The United States has a claim to dis
tinction for which It has by no means re
ceived general credit either at home or
abroad. For the United States, on the
authority of the United States Geological
Survey, possesses glaciers which "vie in
magnitude and In splendor with the most
boasted glaciers of the Alps." The claims
of this country to fame as a land of
glaciers are set forth In a bulletin re
cently Issued by the Geological Survey
and written by F. E. Mutthes, which
deals in detail with the glaciers of
Mount Italnicr. But this mountain Is
by no means the only locality In tha
United States where glaciers are to be
found. Mr. Matthes writes:
Tho Impression still prevails In many
quarters that tiue glaciers, such as am
found In the Swiss Alps, do not exist
within the confines of the United States,
and that to behold one of these rare
scenic features ono must go to Switzer
land, or else to the less accessible Cana
dian Rockies or the Inhospitable Alaskan
coast. As a matter of fact, permanent
bodies of snow nnd Ice, largo enough to
ueserve uie name or glaciers, occur on
many of our Western mountain chains,
notably In the Rocky Mountains, where
only recently a national reservation
Glacier Nutlonal Park was named for
Its Ice fields: In the Sierra Nevada of
Callfornlu, and further north, in the
LOFTY PEAKS OF ETERNAL ICE.
It Is on the lust-named mountain chain
that glaciers especially abound, cluster
ing, as a rule, In groups about the higher
summits of the crest, llut this range
also supports a series of huge extinct
volcanoes that tower high ubovo Its sky
line In the form of Isolated cones On

from Seattle or Tneoma, the two prlncl

flower-scpnted air of alplno meadows need
no longer be cxcluslvo pleasures, to bo
gained only by a trip abroad
Of tho mountain Mr. Matthes says!
Mount Rainier stands on tho west edge
of tho Cascade range, overlooking tho
lowlands that stretch to Puget Hound.
Seen from Seattle or Tacoma, 60 or 60
miles distant, respectively, It nppcars to
rlso directly from Bea level, so Insignifi
cant seem tho ridges about Its base. Yet
these ridges themselves aro of no mean
height. They rlso 3000 to 4001 feet abovo
tho valleys that cut through them nnd
their crests average 6000 feet In altitude.
MAJESTIC MOUNT RAINIER.
Mount Rainier stands, In round num
bers, 10,000 feet high abovo Its Imme
diate base, and covers 100 square miles of
territory, or one-third of the urea of
Mount Ralnlor National Park. In shapo
It Is not a simple cone tapering to a slender-
pointed summit, like Fuji Yams, tho
great volcano of Japan. It is, rather, a
broadly truncated mass, resembling nn
enormous tree stump, with spreading baso
and Irregularly broken top.
The altitude of the main summit ban for
many years been In doubt. Several figures
have been announced from tlmo to time,
no two of them hi agreement with each
other; but all of these. It Is to bo ob
served, were obtained by more or less
approximate methods. In 1&13 the United
States Geological Survey, In connection
with Its topographic surveys of tho Mount
Rainier National Park, was able to make
a new series of measurements by trl
angulatlon methods at close range. Theso
give tho peak an olevatlon of H.40S fret,
thus placing It near the top of the list
of high summits of the United States.
ThlB last figure, It should be added, Is
not likely to bo in error by more than
a foot or two, and" may. with some confi
dence, be regarded as final. Greater ex
actness of determination Is scarcoly prac
ticable In the case of Mount Rainier, ns
Its highest summit consists actually of a
mound of snow, the height of which nat
urally varies somewhat with the seasons
and from oar to year.
This crowning snow mound, which was
once supposed to be the highest point In
the United States, still beats the proud
name of Columbia crest. It Is essentially
a huge snowdrift or snow dune, heaped up
by the westerly winds. Driving furlouly
up through the great breach In the west
flank of the mountain, between Peak Suc
cess and Liberty Cap, they eddy lightly
as they shoot over the summit and there
deposit their load of snow,
WHAT A GLACIER IS.
Mr. Matthes describes 15 of the glaciers
of the mountain. In regaid to glaciers
generally he says: A glacier Is not a
mere stationary blanket of snow and Ice
clinging Inert to the mountain flank. It
Is a slowly moving, streamlike body that
descends by virtue of Its 'own weight.
The upper parts nro continually being
replenished by fresh snowfalls, which at
those high altitudes do not entirely melt
away In summer, while the lower end,
projecting as It does below the snow
line, loses annually more by melting than
It receives by precipitation, and Is main
tained only by tho continued accession of
masses from above
The rate at which the Ice advances has
been determined by Prof. J. N. Le Conte,
of the University of California, In 1f'3
he placed a row of stakes across the
glacier, and with the aid of survejlng
Instruments obtained accurate measure
ments of the distances through which
they moved from day to day. He found
that In summer, when the movement Is
gi cutest, it averages 16 inches per day
This figure, however, applies only to tho
central portion of the glacier the main
current, so to speak for the margins
necessarily move more slowly, being re
tarded by friction against the channel

One of the outstanding features of the

them as alpenstocks.
The task of hauling supply trains over

After telling of M. Turpln's dislike of
the French War Office nnd his grievance
folowlng the Government's acceptance of
melinite and lyddite, the Informant of

upon a new explosive, which he endeav

It, melinite and lyddite would be prac
