A rrlTato Forest
Some years ago we bad a large sum of
money that we were not using, and as it
lay idle in our coffers, -we decided to
purchase a fine building site in northeast
Larimie, improve it, and sell it at a large
profit. Being considerably struck with
the primeval beauty and solemn magnificence
of the evergreen, we decided
at first to secure some spruces and make
that corner a kind of spruce gum orchard,
which would naturally be the envy
and admiration of the West. Acting
upon this impulse wo purchased a load
of this vegetable, setting out the trees
on two sides of the plantation, and digging
an irrigation ditch 2&i feet long by
which to water them. For two weekB
the irrigation ditch failed to connect
with the central office, and we carried
water to the trees through the agency of
a mechanical arrangement known as the
All these trees died of the pinkeye
We then sent East and purchased 100
seedlings of the Norway spruce variety,
and fringed the ditch with them, protecting
them from the hot sun by means
of wide shingles placed on the south
side. These trees staggered along
through the summer, and when winter
sat in were pale and emaciated, but
cheerful and hopeful for the future. The
winter was an unusually severe one, and
toward spring a large, lonely cow,
known throughout the west as Dr. Tanner,
in an unguarded moment got over
the inclosure and ate the entire forest.
We had almost decided at that time
to abandon timber culture in Wyoming,
but when vernal spring opened we decided
to get some choice trees from the
adjacent mountains and make one grand
farewell effort. One p'easant day we
consented to make a picnic excursion
into the Black Hill with a small party
of friends, and while others packed the
large luuch baskets we put into the
barouche, a spade and some other burglar's
tools. The picnic was not a financial
or social success. Picnics very
A bottle of glycerine that had been
brought by one of the young ladies to protect
her hands from the rigorous climate,
got broken and worked itself i the
sponge cake, and a pint of campher got
mixed up with the pie. A rain storm
came up also and created a lunch basket
full of chaos which we emptied out under
While the rest of the party gathered
wood violets and a rare endogenous
plant vulgarly termed "beggar's lice,"
we skirmished around and gathered
small spruce trees.
It was a glorious day for all. The sun
came out just long enough to peel the
noses of the party and then went under
a cloud, followed by a cold rain and hail.
All that had been brought along to eat
was spoiled except some candy with mottoes
on the side. When you have been
riding all day in the vigorous air of the
mountains and have to rill yourself up
with a drink of warm water and a lozenge
on which is printed "I can never bo
thine," it tends to hush the frivolous
laughter of the giddy throng and make
people get acquainted with each other
in a way tliat is not pleasant. The
mountain picnic has broken up more
engagements and shattered more Joving
hearts than grim visaged war and the
angry parent combined.
There are two prolific causes of crime
in this country. One is rum and the
other is the picnic.
But we deflect from the original line

The new forest thrived during the
summer until August when we were
called away from town to put up a political
job for the good of the country.
We were absent two weeks and while
away a neighbor who was erecting a
croquet lawn, composed of wild buffalo
grass and a velvety sweep of red sand,
turned the humid contents of our ditch
into his luxuriant gravel patch where he
was trying to promote the guileless
game of croquet.
On our return, the sombre green of
our little wilderness had changed to a
dazzling sorrel color that looked like the
big Michigan fire.
People sometimes ask us this season
why we, do not go into the tree business
with our old enthusiasm, but we answer
them rudely and harshly, for who can
chat gaily of that which tears out his
heart and grinds, it into the grave of
buried hopes. Bill Nye's Boomerang.
What Ailed Dean Swift.
When "the Vandal desecration of
Aonuments" in 1885, exposed Swift's
akull to the iDhrenologists, the great
Dublin aurist might possibly have found
in the bones of the ear traces of the
cause of his giddiness. When Mr.
Whiteway examined the brain he might
have found the cause of Swift's right-sided
hemiplegia and his aphasia. It is
enough now that we can diagnose his
life-long disease as labyrinthine vertigo,
and his insanity as dementia with aphasia;
the dementia arising from general decay
of the brain from age and disease, the
paralysis and aphasia from disease of-one
particular part of the brain.
With all the tortures of the life-long
disease from which he suffered and its
obvious effect upon his temper in his
later years, it is wonderful that Swift did
retain his reason until, in the seventy-fourth
year of his age, he was in all
probability struck down by a now disease
in the form of a localized leftside
apoplexy or cerebral softening, which
determined the symptoms of his insanity.
That Swift's works contain no indication
of insanity appears to be certain.
As well say that Shakespeare was mad
because he wrote a good deal which we
think nasty. In the fashion of the day,
Swift was too prone to make what may
called excrementitious jokes and gibes.
But that periect gentleman, Antonio,
Voided his rheum upon Shy lock's beard ;
and the same kind of thing runs through
our literature, no one objecting, until we
rather recently become less natural and
more nice. Some of our smaller humorists
and men of letters have criticised
this great king of humor as if he were
both bad and mad, not perceiving that if
he were really insane he must be
pitied and not cursed. But it is the
Weakest of arguments to say, withFestus,
for want of argument, "Much learning
doth make thee mad." There is always
weakness in madness, but there is little
sign of this in Swift's works. There is
always some inconsequentness or
in madness, but there is none of
this in Swift. Down to the last letter to
Mrs. Whiteway he is most wretched, but
ho is still collected and wholly himself.
