First among recorded tourists to Lakeland was Gray, the poet, author o? the "E2egy ,ln a Country Church yard," says "Country Life, lie visited the Westmoreland and Cumberland lakes In 1760C, the year before Words worth, the nrost -outstanding among the lake school of poets, was born. He discovered the lakes, alike in a touring and literary sense, and beiag essentially of tft eighteenth century; he fled from tBfcm anI the grandeur of their scenery In dismay. For not then had the picturesffue been in vented. The beauties of wild nature were not appreciated, and had they been the roads of that age and the lack of proper accommodation were powerful deterrents. But for close upom a century Lake land has been a greatly appreciated touring ground. Scenery amd the lit erary associations wllH; Wordsworth, Southey, Coleridge, De Qulncey and their circle, have attracted every type of holiday maker. First came the vacatioQ reading parties of university students, then the honeymoon couples, to whom the Low Wood Hotel, Amble side,, was once, In a sense, sacred; and then the railways brought tour ists from far and near. But not until the automobile came upom the roads was Lakeland comfortably or thor oughly to be explored. The tonrlst by motor car here has choice' f every kind of road, or no road, and may, If he will;, take his sport la pass-storming with: the most adventurous, or take his sight-seeing along roads as good as any in this country. It is all a matter of taste and inclination. The Ideal way of seeing- Lakeland 13 undoubtedly that of selecting some central spot at which to stay and taking from it daily, out and home, excursions. Thi is so for several reasons; chief among them that of the somewhat limited area of the lake district, which may be stated at about thirty miles square. The lakes figure so largely In. popular im agination that this will seera scarcely credible; yet any reference to maps will prove the truth of it; But it does not follow from this sheer matter-of-fact measurement that this region Is easily seen or soon exhausted. Grasmere In the: Center. Exactly in the center f the lake district is Grasmere, central geographi cally, and In its interest, for It was Wordsworth's home, anditn Its church yard he lies; There are five recognized centers for tourists in these regions: Windermere,' Ambleside and Grasmere, about equi distant, some four miles from one an other; Keswick, thirteen miles further north, and Coniston, somewhat iso lated, seven miles southwest of Am bleside. It would be a thankless task to declare any preference among these,, but we will take Grasmere- as the very focus of the lakes. Grasmere village Is a sweet and gra dous place. Here Wordsworth resided for more than fifty years. His later homes here - are not accessible, but Dove Cottage, where he 'wrote his earliest and best, has been preserved as it was In his day, and is the resort of literary pilgrims, while the unpre tending church - beside the River Eotha is much the same as he knew It. That Is an interesting day trip, along excellent ' roads, which takes us nonh to Cockermouth, the old market town at the extreme northerly edge of Lake land, where his birthplace, in Main street, Is still shown. The way runs by Dunraall Raise to Wythburn, whose little church, one of the smallest In England, Is neighbored by the Nag's Head Inn, where the old dalesmen and their wives put up their horses while attending service In olden times. The road then runs alongside Thlrlmere, with the Imposing moun tain, Helvellyn, 3,118 feet, on right. Keswick town comes next; a consid erable place for this part of the coun try, and with an oddly foreign appear ance, caused chiefly by the church like building- (really the town hall) in the middle of the street. The- chief Industry is the making of lead pen cils. - Derwentwater Loveliest Lake. But Derwentwater Itself is the real reward of the Journey. It is generally considered the loveliest of all the lakes, and It is also the most accessi ble, a good road encircling it Beyond Keswick we pass Greta Hall, once the home of Southey, and come to Bas senlhwaite Water. Preferably taking the teft-hand road, SMddaw, 3,054 feet, s teen across the water. Cocker M7h. is some blx miles further. pst-mmt Returning from that town, the other side of Bassenthwaite Water may be taken, and the rest of the way back to Grasmere Is identical with the ont- ward run. The distance, including the circuit of Derwentwater, is about seventy-six miles. . But Derwentwater fs worth a mare leisured trip, for Its own sake. The trip from Grasmere to Keswick and the circuit of Derwentwater and back fs thirty-five miles. The advantages are with the tourist proceeding to Keswick and there turning left and past the church, following; the eastern side of the lake to Lodore; where the "Falls of Lodore," sung by Southey, will be found. Beyond we come to Shepherd's Crag, overhanging the road, and past the Borrowdale hotal and the narrow pass called the "Jaws of Bor rowdale," whose rocks so greatly jialarmed Gray 150 years ago. At Grange where the River Derwent flows out of Derwentwater, the road abruptly turns, to- follow the western lakeside. In tile pleasant vale- at Grange is that giant rock, the "Bowder Stono;" The peculiar advantages of staying at Grasmere are many. Not least among them: is that within ffv miles yotr have- not only Grasmere- Itself, rivaling Derwentwater for lovelHies, but Rydal' Water, and the town of Am bleside, wlft Windermere, the largest and most popular of the lakes byond. All are' within an easy walk fbr the tourist staying at Grasmere, who will scarce-rake out his car whemfre can indulge In pleasant footpath rambles for n- change;. The car i lor farther afiel3t For example,- the run to Tenrith,!. along Ullswater. The out and home run is fifty-sis mile.. The best wny from Grasmere- is t take the Windermere road, as far as Waterhead ; . fchenc turning to the- left and up to" Trout beck. The- nearer route, up from Am bleside" to- Kiukstone Pass, is an ex ceedingly steep climb, but it aan be taken on' the retnrn. On tUe way ta Ullswater the gloomy little mountain town of Brotho.as Wa ter Is passed; and then comes the de scent, to pleasant, sunny Tattoerdale. Here- the seven mlle3 long lake of Ullswater, i the second longest: of the lakes, begins,, skirted all the --way by a delightful read, wKh the waterfall of AIra Force midway, spouting Srom Its woody glen.. Ullswater ends ai Pooley Bridge, whence- it is seven aja'J a half miles into) tfc quaint old maritet town of Pcnrithj. passing Yanwath ;I5all, now a farm house, but a good surviving specimen of the fifteenth century for tified border residence; and thence over the- ancient Eamont Bri-uSge, built In 1425. FACTS AMD FIGURES; OF WAR Immensity ttt Supplies Needed In Mod er,i Conflict Revealed fcy Sir Douglas Hai$. These- are some of the asuazlng fact in Sir Douglas Haig's final dispatch:: General headquarters received 9,000 telegram In one day, asid 3,400 let ters by dispatch-riders One army headquarters had 10,000 telegrams, la a day, and the daily telegrams on th lines of communication were 23,00a. There were 1,500 mil&s of telegraphs and telephones, and 3.SSS miles of. rail ways on which XSOO tmins ran weekly. In six weeks 5,000,000 rations; were supplied, by our armies in France, to 800,000 civilians la the relieved areas. Two hundred tons dead Wright of supplies and stores were required daily for the maintenance of each di vision. The total daily ration strength erf our armies was 2,700,000. An addi tion of one ounce to eacb man's ra tions represented an extra 75 tons. Over 400,000 horses and mules and 46,700 motor vehicles were used, and 4,500 miles of road .made or main tained. In 1914 there was one machine gun to 500 infantrymen in the British army ; when peace came there was one machine gun to 20 infantrymen. Over 700,000 tffns of ammunition were fired by our artillery on the western front from August, 1919, to the armistice. Montreal Herald. Children's Spending Money. The practice of doling out money to the children by dribbles, when they tease for it, and without holding them to any responsibility in the matter of spending it, Is undoubtedly responsible for most of the prevalent unthrlft among our young people. It is quite natural that this childish attitude to ward money should continue even into tlxi period when the young person be comes a money-earner on his own ac count, and oftentimes, into his adult life as well.
