True, it lias the ma jestic, snow-topped mountains crowd ed closely together, the glittering ice fields of glaciers, the sparkling little lakes lying cupped between the heights, and the magnificent forests of pine and fir. Hut not, as in Switzerland, are there towns and hamlets and scattered cottages; the visitor must gain the summits afoot or on horseback, without the aid of "funicular" or cog railway; over and through and about it there are not the immense swarms of "trippers" that infest the old world country; hordes of guides do not dog your footsteps, and ravenous hotelkeepers are not found at every turn. Others have dubbed it "Uncle Sam's Newest Playground," and so it is, but it will not be that very long. So some writer with a vivid imagina tion must find a new name for the Glacier Na tional Park. About 14,000 persons visited Glacier park last summer, and in the coming season it is probable fully twice as many will view its beauties and wonders. Although as a national park it is only three years old, its name is already familiar in this country because of the extensive advertising it has received and of the enthusi astic accounts of those who have seen it; and it seems destined to become one of the most popular regions for persons who like to spend their holidays in a some what unconventional way and at moderate expense. Occupying 1,400 square miles near the northwest corner of Montana, Glacier park is right in the heart of the" Rockies and in the matter of mountain scenery it yields to no place. Doz ens of magnificent peaks crowd the landscape, some towering to heights of more than 10,000 feet. On the upper slopes of many of them shine the gla ciers that give the park its name, and from these everlasting beds of snow and ice are born scores of torrents that dash, down the mountain sides and hurl themselves over tremendous cliffs. Scattered all about among the mountains are deep lakes that, lie like burnished mirrors in the calm of a sunny day or are lashed into black rage when the storm sweeps down on them from the heights. Perilous passes, steep and rocky climbs slip-rt- ir i. hVik across elaciers and miles of dense jtjst are therWiCrAe"fiorrf-i, bile,; coach, launch and horseback trips, rest and recreation, in an excellent hotel and delightful "chalet camps,". and always mellow days and cool If one wishes to get away from hotel life en tirely he can have camping trips in the wilderness, and it is really wilderness, in which he can wander for weeks without seeing a human habitation. Big game is there in abundance bears, mountain Bheep, mountain goats and various kinds of "var mint" but of course it is strictly protected by Uncle Sam. But fish are there, too, especially trout, and the visitor is free to catch them if he can. Adding their own touch of picturesqueness are the Indians of the Blackfeet tribe, whose home is in the reservation immediately east of the park. The usual entrance to the park is at its south east corner where, at Glacier Park station, is one of the most remarkable and attractive hotels in the country. The main buflding 'is constructed largely of immense logs from Washington and Oregon and the spacious lobby is flanked by these natural pillars which tower three stories to the roof. Enormous fireplaces, scores of pelts of wild animals and the heads of buffalo and deer add to the attractions; and more comfort and better food cannot be obtained in metropolitan hotels. Tour ists, guides and Indians mingle here, and for mality is discarded. I haven't the slightest intention of writing a Buidebook to tho Glacier National Park, but I do wish to tell of some of its wonders and beauties that can be seen in a visit of a few days. So first let's climb into this big touring car and go to Lake St. Mary.. Our chauffeur Is a "breed," capa ble, courteous and well educated, who knows the country as you know your back yard. For some 20 miles our route lies through the Indian reser vation and we skim along the boulevard road across sweeps of prairie, up hills and along the edges of precipices, now dipping down into lovely valleys, now crossing rushing streams', with the mountains ever growing more imposing and more fascinating. Twisting up a long climb and swerv ing to the west, we come to the continental water ehed near Triple Divide mountain. Thence the waters flow on one side to Hudson bay, on another to the Pacific and on the third to the Mississippi valley and the gulf. This is truly the roof of the continent. Now for 16 miles the road runs through the great pine forests and winds gradually downward, on the slopes of the mountain, until with a loud honking our motor car draws up be side the charming log chalets of St. Mary, camp that cling to the steep shores of the lake, whose waters sparkle and ripple under the midday sun. Dinner awaits in the' biggest chalet plain food, well cooked and plentiful, served by attractive waitresses. It is eaten with a relish and without formalities, and then, after a few minutes in the -recreation" chalet with its player piano and dance floor, we all pil aboard a powerful gasoline launch and head up the lake for Going-to the-Sun On the right stretches the long ridge of Single Shot mountain, and on the left rise Citadel, Al most Dog (lovely name) and other fine peaks. Put our eyes are fixed forward to where Going-tothe-Sun mountain rears its magnificent snow topped head. It Is one of the most picturesque ountains in America, and hanging near its sum wit it a lr glacier whose stream, falling head Jong, It constantly blown upward into spray by the never ceasing winds.

The ferret-eyed little man stepped across the street car aisle and whis-, pered into the ear of the. tall chap in a gray suit: "You'd better wipe that bit of epg off your chin. The income-tax man is just two seats in front of you. "In dianapolis Star. lake, the view of this mountain, of Klackfeet gla cier, of Citadel, Reynolds, and Fusillade mountains and of the heights about Gunsight pass far beyond Is most impressive. While we linger here marveling at the "upside down" waterfall, the vivid colors of the mountains and the ice-green lake spread at our feet, the sharp peak of Fusillade is veiled by clouds that pour swiftly over and about the nearer heights, and away up there a snowstorm is raging. For us it is rain, however, and driven to shelter, we crowd into the cabin of the launch and hustle back to St. Mary camp. From St. Mary camp the automobile road baa just been extended some 20 miles to Many-Glacier camp on Lake McDermott. This place, in itself fine enough, is the headquarters from which we make short "trips to some of the park'3 greatest attractions Morning Eagle falls, Cataract creek, Swift Current pass and, most wonderful of all, Ic;ei berg lake. This little body of exquisitely blue wa ter Is almost wholly surrounded by serrated, splintered ridges that tower 3,000 feet above its surface. On a kind of shelf lies what is left of the ancient glacier that scooped out this basin ages ago, and fromvits edges icebergs, large and small, are continually breaking off to go floating lazily about in the lake. Iceberg lake is the habitat of the polar trout discovered by Hoke Smith, who says they have fur instead of scales. Now back to the Glacier Park hotel for mail and a little rest, for we are seeing the park in a lazy, leisurely fashion. And what next? Well, suppose we give at least one day to Two Medicine lake, a region that for sheer beauty can hold its own with any in the park. The trip is made by stage In about three hours, and on the way up the lovely valley we tie up the horses and are led through the forest to the Trick falls. Here 1n high water times Two Medicine river plunges over the edge of a mass of rocks down among huge boulders: but in the dry season it drops into a hole above and emerges more quietly through a cavern in the rooky wall. The mountain that especially domi nates Two Medicine lake Is Rising Wolf, and it Is almost as handsome as Going-to-the-Sun. Here, too, is another of those delightful chalet camP9 and what with the view, the food and the air, it is hard to tear one's self away from it. If there are any real fishermen in our party the best thing they can do Is to go to St. Mary s camp again, and from there by trail to Red Eagle ake. three hours distant. This beautiful green lake, only a mile long and half a mile wide, is from zoo to 600 feet deep, and fairly swarms with cut throat trout, while in the streams that flow into and out of it the Dolly Varden trout is found in great numbers. These ash are good fighters and the angler who gets oae on his hook and under takes to yank it from its ice-cold home has a task that delights his sou. Since there is a stretch or shallow water in front of the camp, the fisherman often rides out on horseback to deeper water and there, still astride hi steed, casts for the trout. The first time you sit on a horse and try to land ten-pound ut-throat you will forget there is aaythiug else on earth except that little lake sur rounded by a dosen magnificent mountains, that horse and that trout. Uelng still somewhat averse to strenuous exer cise, we are now golna to board the train at Gla cier Park station and ride luxuriously over the continental divide, in itself a trip well worth tak- "Ify. -Rhlch 1r ic2iv1?-iZ?-4ropoiitan ntftfi&zar tibh was koi ing. Alighting," heldyWof Helton, we have a delicious mealing? Great Northern's pretty Swiss chalet hoiqrod.irt:lircb aboard a stage coach for the ride to La'V McDonald. For an hour we travel a boulevard )cut through a dense forest of pine, spruce and b;Usam, and then, where a group of cottages are clustered on its shore, the lake opens out before us. , This 11-mile stretch of water is so beautiful, in setting and color, that no words are adequate to describe it. Lake McDonald was a popular resort long before the national park was established, and there are several hotels and camps about its northern end. To one of these, the Glacier hotel,, we a.-e taken by launch to be greeted cordially by its proprietor, J. E. Lewis, who for years has been taking care of fishermen and other folk who wanted to spend a week or a summer In the open. So near that it seems but a moment's walk fipm the shore, the mountains of the park tower W the 6kies, casting their jagged reflections in the still waters of ihe lake. A ten mile ride through the forest that clothes their lower slopes brings us to Avalanche lake. Pea green In color, reflecting the spruee and pine and hemlock that crowd to its very edge, it lies like a precious gem in a deep basin that is a veritable mountain garden'. At one end the rock wall rises almost perpendicularly for 6,000 feet, and over its edge ard down, its face dash four torrents dis charged from Sperry glacier, two miles away. Not very easy of access, but wonderfully impres sive when you get to it after some five hours of climbing, is Sparry glacier. Just a great field of ice and snow, about three miles in extent and of unknown depth, it lies glittering and sparkling under the midsummer sun. Crevasses cross its expanse here and there, and the tourist must be exceedingly careful if he ventures out on Its sur face. Indeed, the authorities do not permit this, unless with guides and ropes, on any of the gla ciers in the park. The wind Is always high up there, and snow and rock slides are frequent. The mountains and glaciers and lakes and passes we have seen are only a few of the wonders of this wonderful park only a few, indeed, of that part that Is open to ordinary sight seers. Almost half of the park, the northern part, is known to few except forest rangers, guides, Indi ans and some scientists. Doubtless before many years the whole region will be opened up, and the remarkably satisfactory system of camps estab lished by the Great Northern Railway company will be extended to the Canadian border. Within the last year these accommodations have been en larged greatly to meet the demands of the rapidly increasing stream of visitors. Qne more thing must be Bald for Glacier Na tional Park: It is a pleasure ground for the peo ple, not for the millionaire. No fine clothes, no expensive luxuries there. All charges are regu lated by the government, and it Is the ambition of Louis Hill, chairman of the board of directors of the Great Northern, to keep the necessary ex penses of visitors down to the minimum. Glacier park is his hobby and his pride, and he Is as familiar with its trails and passes as are the guides and the Indians. Of course, tourist travel to the park helps his railway, and at some time in the far future the company may begin to break even on its lavish expenditure of money to make things comfortable for those who go all the way to Montana to see the Bwltserland of America 1 haven't st devised a better Bane for it.
