The Salt Sea Legend.
There is a legend in the Norse
tales which explains why thei sea is
salt. The "bountiful Frodi," whose
mythical reign was a golden age In
deed, possessed a quern, or hand mill,
which ground out gold and peace, but
which would grind out stores of .any
thing desired by it sowner. Two giant
maidens, ruled over by Frodi, were the
grinders. In an evil day a sea rdver
came upon the scene, slew Frodf and
carried off the the quern and the two
giant maidens who worked it. When,
the sea rover's vessel was right out at
sea he ordered the maidens to grind
no further notice jsalt. At midnight they asked If they
had not ground enough. The sefit rov
er, angry at being awakened from" his
sleep, commanded them to grind until
morning. Now, the giant maidens nat
urally enough worked very quickly, so
as they went on grinding the load oft
salt grew so heavy that It sank the '
ship, and now the sea will continue
salt forever. 5 "

"I saw but little indications of war.
The1 plantation is down in the south

district and we were therefore quite a
