farmers, and during the summer months we are subjected to endless annoyance, not only by having produce stolen which is near the highway, but also by having passers-by wade through corn and grain fields in order to get to the less convenient crops. City dwellers seem to have the erroneous idea that country property, no matter where located, is for their delight and use. A farm wife, living not far from here, found automobilists in her front yard picking her choice roses. When she remonstrated, they affected surprise at her interference and retreated in anger. An extreme case, you say. Yes, but there are too many such.
The paragraph in your publication to which I am referring may do no harm. Probably it will not. But all of us could travel de luxe if we saw fit to “ borrow" as that quartette did.
Now that I have relieved my mind, let me say that I know that you do not approve of that sort of thing. But it is the hit hen that flutters, and we have been hit many
tiines. I have read The Outlook for twenty years, always with the keenest interest and with the feeling that one of your basic principles is that of a square deal for all.

III-ROBBING THE PUBLIC OF ITS
RIGHT TO BEAUTY I came home from a canoe trip with my husband and three children sick at heart. I was thinking aftermany experiences that the average American family needed educating along the line of caring for and enjoying the most beautiful spots out of doors.
I have canoed over a big portion of the north country. I have been auto-bumming, I have camped in our National Parks, and it is one and the same story. Paper, cups, tin spoons, soiled paper plates, oiled paper, , newspapers-all left as litter to blow where they will, leaving not a place for the next party to eat or camp.
In Glacier National Park there are signs posted to clean up rubbish; yet all along the trails from one end to the other are remnants of lunch-boxes.
After canoeing down the beautiful St. Joe River, we camped for a number of days at Higman Park, St. Joseph, Michigan. It was a sad sigiit to see one party in particular at Higman Park build a fire against one of the beautiful gate pillars, which are made of Bedford stone and brick.
Picnic party after picnic party came in and the debris blew into my camp until I was disgusted. After one particular party had packed up I said to my children, “ I am going to take these overdressed Americans to task.” I approached them courteausly and I said, “ Is it possible that you are going away and leave your picnicgrounds looking like this, and leaving your papere to blow into my camp?” “Yes," they said, and laughed. I said, “ Talk about vandalism-you.are the best example I know. Don't come again.” As they were leaving they yelled, "Just pick up the papers and build
fire.” Farmers let me roam their fields to study birds where it is thickly posted with signs “Keep Out.” I treat other people's property as I would want mine treated, and I am always invited to come back. It is the fault of every individual
camper and picnicker that places of beauty are gradually being closed to the public. Goshen, Indiana,

STOP THOSE DANGEROUS DRAUGHTS
—that Cause Discomfort and Ill-Health
ARTISTS AND SOME ARCTIC
GOATS In The Outlook, date of July 14, is a review of Rockwell Kent's book, “ Wilderness.” One paragraph reads as follows:
In the other class are the drawings which are mainly concerned with portraying the life of the artist, his son, and their companion, " old man Olson, on the island, surrounded by the animals of the Arctic regions and the wild glories of the aurora borealis. It is difficult to express any preference between the shining symbolism of the one class and the human beauty of the other.
The island mentioned is called Fox Island, an unsuccessful attempt having been made at one time to establish a fox farm there. It is a mountain at the entrance of Resurrection Bay, and lies some eight or ten miles south of the town of Seward. The bay is always free from ice, and supplies can be obtained from the town. The temperature at Seward is seldom below zero, and probably differs little from that of the island. Probably the nearest approach to "animals of the Arctic regions are the possible traces of some domestic goats shipped in from the States and at one time herded on the island by “old man Olson.” The “wild glories of the aurora borealis," while strikingly beautiful here, are said by those who have lived in the far north to be but a faint reflection of the au- . rora borealis as seen in the Arctic regions.
“The primitive life” mentioned in the review of “ Wilderness" is so common to the pioneer of Alaska that no one but an artist would ever think of retailing it.

A French boy in an English school wrote “ too ” when it should have been “to.” His master was pleased to be sarcastic, and said (we can only represent it arithmetically): “There are three 2's in
