It was quite a thrill to lake the five and a half minute ride to the mountain top, but it was even a greater thrill cpmr ing down. The view from the top of Lookout mountain is spectacular. You look down on a forest wonderland. There is nothing commercial to mar the view. One can see miles and miles of Minnesota forests which have made this state a mecca for tourists from all over the world. This summer visitors have comfi from almost every state in the Union.

This is one of those quiet ciuys, too hot for people to stir around much. I've been busy at my word machine most of the day with a little time out for the aforementioned crocheting. I need Li/.zie Post here with me to lend enthusiasm. She und Rose Sigs- bce are very busy ut the floral hall. Lizzie has charge of textiles and Rose is her assistant.
