Time was when the three questions I

but that time has passed. All the world
takes a vacation nowadays, or at least
tike exceptions are so rare that they may
be spoken of as "proving the rule."
Judging from present indications, the
growth of the habit this year will be
quite up to the annual average. The
newspapers are filled with attractive ad
"twtisements setting forth the merits of
resorts by the seashore, by the Bide of
the still waters of lakes, in the moun
tains and in the forests. Town and coun
try are being flooded with hand bills and
folders and handsomely printed, artistic

and cottages and boarding ljouses have
been in process of preparation for vaca

with trimmer folk. Rowboats on In

•tagecoaches that are idle all the rest of
the year have been furbished, the gentle
tfceological student has found a place to
**wait"—in short, the vacation season is
here: here, with all its genuine pleasure,
its healthful rest, its sound sleep, its
rowing and sailing, its tramping and
riding, its fishing and shooting here,
fikewise, with all its rush and worry
and sham and heartburnings, for there
are vacations and vocations. There are
persons who take their vacations sensi
bly. who get some real lenefit from
them, and who return to their daily oc
cupations refreshed and better able to
grapple with the problems of existence,
and there are other persons who do not
understand tbe real object of vacations

hardest time of the year, who return

tkeae persons it were better if vacations

change is much mora important than the
element of rest. It not infrequently
happens that the vacationer is 011 the go

from his regular haunts, 'but returns

Jfrom the vacation habit are the society

Tho fact that Chicago is holding a big
World s fair this year has a tendency to
disturb the normal flow of vacation trav
el. Tho regular weeks at tho shore and
in tho mountains will be omitted in some
cases, and of course this carries with it
a diminution of the amourt of money
that will be expended in the regular way.
It seems likely, however, that this dim
inution will 1H? greater in tho directior
of the summer schools than the retiorts
that have no educational features or the
quiet country places. In fact, several
hools have decided to suspend
theft- sessions this year lrecau^e *f the
World's fair, tluir conductors realizing
that the educational significance of the
exposition is so great as to be likely to
draw largely from their constituencies.
But while it is undoubtedly a good thing
to go to the World's fair it is not likely
that a trip thither will afford any one
the rest and recreation that are needful at
Vacation time. True, the element of
change will not be Licking, but those
Who attend will do well to reserve at
least a week of the time they can afford
to be away from their business to rest
after visiting the fair before returning
to work.
If you are really in need of absolute
rest, there is no better way to take it
than to ship on a sailing vessel for a
coasting voyage for a few weeks. You
cannot get the newspapers on ship
board, telegrams cannot reach you, and
no matter how nervous you are or how
much you aro wrapped up in your busi
ness affairs you will be pretty likely
after a few days' life on th# wave to
drop everything and give yourself en
tirely up to relaxation. If you have
been sensible enough to take along a
supply of light, wholesome reading,
you will undoubtedly enjoy yourself im
mensely after you have got over being
seasick—and when, after the voyage is
over, you tread on land again your step
will be firmer, your eye will be brighter
and your nerves will bo steadier than
they were when you embarkecl.
There is no more sensible way of spend
ing your vacation if you are engaged the
year round in sedentary pursuits than to
take a tramp of a week or two. In these
days of bicycles the wheel is much pre
ferred by many, but you will find that
the old fashioned way of footing it has
its advantages. Of course you do not
want to tramp through the thickly set
tled sections of the country. Your tramp
ing should be dctlie over mountain roads,
where you may hear the gurgle of rnn-
i V
ning water and the roar of an occasional
cataract, where you may sometimes
walk for miles in the shade of mighty
forests and where your eyes may at
times be greeted by grand and beautiful
vistas of hill and valley. If you are dys
peptic when you start out and possessed
of littlo appetite, you will soon miss the
first and find the second, and the simple
fare yon will be able to get at the houses
where you stop for meals will help to
bring back tone to your system. Take
my word for it, if you decide to pass
your vacation in this way you will never
regret it. But you must wear solid, easy
shoes, you must dress for comfort and not
for looks, you must be prepared for phys
ical weariness, and you must uot expect
that your meals will be cooked by French
A lawyer of my acquaintance who
was born in a log house and has built
up a large practice in a big eastern city,
always passes his vacation in a remote
place, where he has had a log cabin built
on the eido of a forest covered mountain.
He goes there every year early in July
and stays till the last of August. He
tells me that while there he wears Ken
tucky jeans and cowhide boots and
Spends his time making and renewing
acquaintance with his few hillside neigh
bors and fishing. "I never catch any
thing to speak of," he says," and I fish
with a worm and a hook. I do not uso a
bamboo rod, but a pole which I cut for
myself. As a matter of -fact, I don't
care very much to catch the fish, but if I
have a fishpole on my shoulder and a
box of bait which I have dug myself in
my pocket I feel that I have a nominal
reason for tramping along the bunks of
the mountain streams, and when I meet
another fisherman or a countryman he
sees what I am out for, and I don't have
to answer too many questions. My wife
alway goes with me to my summer log
cabin, and she enjoys it as much as I
The amount of money that is annually
put into circulation by the Taction
habit is very large. In fact, in some lo
calities where farming is greatly run
down more money is taken in during
the outing season than during all the
rest of the year. To offset the fact that
this is the harvest time of the people who
live there is the other fact that this is
also their time of hard work that they
aro worried and worn and tired just at
the time when vacationers arts care free

column furnished a clew to the identity
of the dtad. Only the heartbroken fa

sad story which for ages bards have
sung. It was indeed an awful lesson.
Decades ago tho trite saying was penned,
"There are sermons in stones, and good

An AiTX)stook judge who look 1 thor
oughly hoiiedt and ingenuous ha- been
telling this story to some of the Port

judge says that one farmer in his 0 unity
raised last season 800 bushels of oats
upon 10 acres of land. He sold the oats
at his door for 50 cents a bushel and
tucked nearly $4C-0 in the bank. He val

A Muu»t«r Advertisement.
The largest advertisement that has
ever been thrown out for wondering hu
manity to gaze upon is that of the Glas
gow News, made of flowerbeds on the
side of a mountain back of Ardenlee,
Scotland. The words "Glasgow News'"
can be feeeu and plainly read at a dis
tance of four miles. Tho length of each
letter is 40 feet, the total length of the
line '323 feet and the area covered by the
letters 14,845 feet. The borders of the
bed are sown with white
centers with red and purple. The effect
from a distance is said to be very grand.
