Both are models of good taste, and
the thrifty trees that surround them
add greatly to their neat appear

All around tills town and on to
Dry Buck much land Is being cul
tivated, and the crops all look fine
At one place where the girls stop
for a drink, they are shown a field
of wheat whose thrifty growth is
higher than their beads. We go on
a new road into Dry Buck and what
words can describe the number and
• beauty of the flowers. The road
winds among the tall pines, with a
clear, stony mountain .nook at. its
side and the beauty of the scene calls

are at our final destination.
One can hardly Imagine anything
more beautiful than la this ride In

road still mumers the ..ttle brook,
with an ocaslonal tiny waterfall—
while the exquisite ferns and taller
peaks that here abound, add to the
beauty of the scene.
We have some handy men In the

have been put In with the load, and
with their help rustic tables and
benches are made. The camp stove
is set up, the tent pitched, and pine
boughs cut for the out-door beds, for

of a pine a swing dangles, and
