W'il id:l l rfugged, except where the v'eieial thand of man has been at work, is i '.ow stoneee National park, in which 'relsi4tlint 'Tlheedore Roosevelt will hide frrom the world. Thllumt:elds of plaeces are there in whichi a rmimnilnt of soldicrs might hide, yet aee all thiat is going on around them. itn tilte ipark are tie dens of bear, the springy beel- f the antelope and the deer, and the yards of the elk, which animals congress has protected from the rifle of the hunters until tf hy are almost as tame as are the Irr 4 Upper Fa~ll o/ the Ve~iowsoeg,.

Stretching as the park does for miles in all directions. a man can wander for days at a time without seeing a hluntai face. yet the hand of the Almighty is so plainly imprinted on everything that the sightser cannit feel he is alone and for saken. To paint the sublime gramndeur of the National park in adequate colors is be yond the power of the ordinary writer it is a poem, at once terribly majestic antd soothing, which needs the words of a master to put into expression. An all-wise government has decreed that no steam roads shall traverse this grand wildnerness; those who wish to enjoy the beauties of one of the grandest spots ever made by God must go in the old-fashioned way, on horseback or by coach. Preserved in all its primeval beauty, ex cept where it has been necessary to con struct roads so that travelers may get from point to point, the park is a fitting place for a resting ground for the presi dent of the United States when wearied with his load of care and responsibilities of state. It was early in I87a when tle Na tional park was established, and since that time hundreds of thousands of dollars have been expended on it in road build ing and the like. It consists of 3,31s square miles and is a country by itself, almost. For the first six years congress appro priated no money for the Imnprovemen.1 of this vast tract, which has since 4hen become one of the wonders of the .irhJ. Six years after the passage of the psik law the sum of $so,ooo was appoftpeaed, after a hard fight, because many of the congressmen thought the money thrown away. But as the years went by there came a change, and in 19oa the sum of $750no0 was appropriated for tl,e purpose of im proving and perfecting the park and to provide an administrative force in order that this veeitadle garden of the gods might be spared to the people of America so long as the government shall last. Scattered through the park are a num her of hotels at which travelers are en tertained during the tourist season. TLese hotels are, of course, fitted with all mod ern conveniences, but it is not believed President Roosevelt will spend many nights under the hospitable roofs, as he is out to "roughl it," a sport he enjoys to the utmost. Seven miles from the entrance of the park are the Matnmmth IlIt Springs. fronm wlich point the circle tour of the park is generally made. Four mile.c away is the Golden Gate, where the go.v ernment has recently constructed a stil statntial road over a yawning chasm and along the side of a precipice. Beyond Twin Lakes is the Devil's Fry ing 'Pan, one of the many peculiar won ders of the park. The Frying Pan is 'a limited sandy area, covered continually by a thing sheet of crystal water where a continuous sizzling and sputtering. similar to boiling grease in an pan over a hot fire is going on. Impregnated with thle odor of sulphur is the air, and the name Devil's Frying Pan at once becomes significant. Near the Fountain hotel at Lower Geyser basin are the Mammoth Paint Pots, which have been boiling away for centuries, and which will continue to loil, in all probability, a long as the park shall endure. All of these things, while objects of great interest, are anong We minor at tractions of the park, whose chief interest is its wonderful cliffs and crags and its stupendous chasms, canyons and water falls. In many places it seems as if a force greater than human mind can conceive of had lifted the earth bodily into the air and let it fall from a dizzy height, dashing it into millions of fragments, ranging in size from atoms the size of a pin head to tremendous mountains, tower ing high into the air. Electric Peak, so-called, is one of the grandest of the many in the park. It was named in 2892, by members of the old Hayden survey party, after a peculiar ex perience. The men were ascending the mountain, when without warning a thunder storm overtook them, seemingly springing out of the clear sky, which became as black as iit in the twinkling of an eye. As the man neared the summit of the great peak the electricity was so strong that they heard a crackling sound, as if sparks were flying from huge electric ma chines. The current began to pass through their bodies, a tingling sensation was felt in the arms and legs, and the sharp re ports that rang in their cars almost deaf enled them for the time. The higher up the party went the more severe became the electric storm, and at last it became necessary to beat a retreat down the side of the mountain. Since then tihe peak has borne the name it is known by at this time. But above all other attractions of the park stands out in bold relief the Grand Canyon, so beautiful and so wonderful ;- ·--_. :. - -------~ .-- that the human mind almost fails to grasp the grandeur of it al. In its presence men stand speechless and women weep in awe. Grand Canyon Is a wonder spot-miles of concentrated splendor, glistening with all the colors of the rainbow, as if the great arch sometimes seen in the heavens had been seised and thrown against the walls of the chasm, where fragments had clung to the almost perpendicular walls. Its cliffs are not the highest, its length is not the greatest, its walls do not fare :-=- --'-'".m=--: m •mm the widest of any canon in the world, but as a congeries of extraordinary scenic ele ments it surpasses anything in the world. At its head is a cataract nearly twice the height of Niagara. Not quite a mile back of that is another fall more than too feet high. Over the precipices found at these points the great river flowing from the big lake and the mountains beyond, plunges in two dissimilar and majestic waterfalls. Either one of them if situated nearer to the centers of population would make the reputation of its locality. Placed where and as they are they add a strong and en during feature to a locality already endued :lvishly by nafure, almost overloaded, in fact, with scenic richness. The canon itself, disassociated, if it were possible, from the falls, is a supremely perfect piece of creation. One might well employ all the adjectives in the vocahu lary-and that they have all been so used by one or another it is no exaggeration to say-to describe it, and then the first ex clamation that one would make upon standing on one of its jutting crags and overlooking the abyss for the first time would be, the half has not been told nor can it be. Through forests almost impenetrable the president will travel, seeing only the elk and the deer that haunt the place, and now and then, perchance, hearing the cry of a mountain lion or the dismal howl of a wolf.

With the grand stand placed as above mentioned, the specta turs will have a close view of the coursers which will make it more interesting for them, and at the same time there will be less disputes as to the decisions of the judges, as the work of the diTfferent hoands can be more closely observed.

Tracey is expected to put up his usual clever ex This peculiar crosstailed "R" is the sign now universally used on doctors' prescriptions, of which we make a specialty. Originally the Latin word "Recipe" was a command by the phy sician to the druggist to "take" the drugs specified and compound them as directed on the prescription. At first it was written out in full, then it was abbreviated by the initial letter "R" with a little mark across the tail to show the abbreviation. Nowadays we use derivatives of this word constant ly: e. g. Receipt, a thing taken; Re cipient, a person who takes; Recipe, a formula; Receive, the act of taking.
