Nasmyth, a landscape painter of
reputje, helped to compose some of
the finest park and forest scenery in
Great Britain. The estate of the
Duke of Athol was disfigured by an
unsightly crag, the rocks of which
were inaccessible to climbers. Nas
myth determined to make a bold bid
for success with a cannon which was
at hand. By his advice tin canisters
were prepared and loaded with - tree
seeds. JFired from the cannon's
mouth, these novel shells burst
against the face of the crag and
scattered their fruitful contents
among the rocky crevices. Nature
carried on the work, and in the
course of years those barren heights
were clothed with trees of luxuriant
growth. Nasmyth's son James, the
Scottish astronomer, is eaid to have
repeated the experiment with eqi&l
8aved His Head.
