View on Derwentwater.
f n JIB lake district of England,
u one of the most beautiful of
H regions, always has been a
javorue resort or American
tourists, not only because of its nat
ural attractions, but also on account
f its literary associations.
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.
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.
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

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. Thrift SSasazlufc
