A hundred years ago Dr. C. W. Grant bought a small, rock-ribbed Island In he Hudson river nearly op posite Peekskill. There was a general laugh at what people declared to be his folly, as the island was so barren and worthless that it did not seem pos sible for anything to grow there. Doc tor Grant, however, had ideas of his own, and he began a growth of grapes of the then new variety, the Delaware. In a very short time the island was known to grape growers all over the country, and Doctor . Grant was de clared to have done more for grape culture than any other man in Amer ica. The great business enjoyed by the physician turned his head, and he be gan to work toward a scheme that would turn the island into a paradise of growing flowers, especially mag nolias and rhododendrons, and he hoped to give seed or cuttings to every home In America. The result of his attempts was bankruptcy, and he left the Island, which soon went back to rock and barren soil. Sure Enough. "What is worse than amateur the atricals?" "Amateur paper-hanging."

Each boy scout council in this ter ritory selected a delegation of individ ual honor scouts and troops. The num ber that participated reached several thousand. It is proposed to make the trip an annual memorial in honor of the man who was the American boys' ideal, and who was at one time honor ary president of the Boy Scouts of America, and was known as the Chief Scout Citizen. The scouts were transported from their various local headquarters to Oyster Bay in automobiles, trains and by boat. They mobilized there and then hiked to Sagamore Hill and to the Roosevelt tomb, where appropriate scout memorial services were held, with addresses by several speakers, in cluding Lieut.-Col. Theodore Roose velt, who recently became a member of the executive board of the boy scouts' organization and shares his father's enthusiasm for scouting.

"The pilgrim age to the tomb of Roosevelt was a lesson in patriotism of the kind that makes for better citizenship, which is a fundamental object of the boy scout movement. President Roosevelt had all the picturesque qualities of a boys' hero. He was an out-of-doors man, a buckskin man, explorer, a true scout of the old American type; beloved by boys, and was always Interested in things boys are interested in. The purpose is to impress upon the boys that participated, and through them to impress upon other boys those splen did qualities of character of Theodore Roosevelt as shown by the events in his life which it should be the aim of every American boy to follow.
