- ' ' * " '"'' , del. ft, 1 ' i4i •*» f • v&> I if V* K NATURE IS CERTAINLY A WOMAN, In the spring she's a lovely girl in the first flush of youth. She's green and eager and the joys and sorrows of living have not yet left theirmarks on Irer face. She's a mother in the summer, lush with growth and busy pouring out her love on the ripening fruits and flowers. She's cool, serene ar.d beautiful-in the winter and she wears her white hair like a crown as she rests from her labors. But Mother Nature is at her best in the fall when, her creative work nearly done, she gets herself a whole new wardrobe of colorful clothes and has one more fling before she settles back bv the fire. » " * * I AM HAVING A DELIGHTFUL REVEL WITH Mama Nature this weekend. The old girl is really putting on a show for me. We are up at the Algona Cottage at Cass Lake on a three day vacation. It's the first in a couple of years and the very first exoericnce at looking at the North Woods when the fall colors are in display. If I sound a bit addelpated, it's because I am. This combination of unexpected leisure mixed with the first sunshine I've seen in a week, the blue of the lake, the gold, green and red of the woods has me a bit lightheaded. * * » IT IS TEN O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING. I have already walked in the woods for what must have been nearly a mile, I've done last nipht's dishes, cooked and eaten a huge breakfast, helped wash the dishes again, read three magazine articles and had a half hour nap! The rest of our group, Joe and Celia Dahlhauser and Pop are beating their brains out trying to catch a fish. They can't quite understand why I'd rather sit here and typewrite. I maintain it's everybody to his own tastes—-especially on a vacation. * * * . THIS IS THE FIRST TIME WE'VE EVER been up here without the kids and our good, old dog, Wiener. I half expect either Bijl, Mary Ann or Jean to come in any moment with wet bathing s.uits -and tracking in half the sand on the beach. I keep wanting to put the table scraps on a plate for the dog and I have glaced under the bed to see if she was in her favorite snoozing place. You will notice that singe Wienie has departed for dog heaven, she has become "our good, old dog". There were times up here, such as when she rolled in a dead fish, or set out to capture a skunk, when my d^s- cription of her was less flattering. » * * SKUNKS ARE PREVALENT UP HERE AGAIN this year. There are. a couple of young hunters camped in the park just across" the river from here who got a scant amount of sleep last night A skunk visited their camp while they were rolled up in their sleeping bags, and because of the well-known consequences of peeving a skunk, they were afraid to scare it away. The men departed* this morning, all their gear packed into a v canoe on their way to more adventure on the Mississippi. Pop has already visited with my-only Cass Lake reader. He is Mr Mullins, formerly a mail carrier at Wesley. He and his wife have a place down the beach a 1 bit and they spend frpn>. early .spring.until it freezes here. ^"•f""'"'" THERE IS NOT A SOUL EXCEPTING our party at the "Call of Thfe North" resort where our cottage is located. The boats are stored in the store-office building and the .cottages are put away for the winter. They tell me new owners have taken over the'place. The Steeles, well known to several Algonans, had a disastrous'fire earlier this spring. Lightning struck their house here and everything was destroyed including 'deep-freezers, household goods and clothing. Fortunately, all the-family got out safely. ANOTHER THING THAT HAS been eliminated since my, last visit here is the daily visit of'.the'mail launch. During the summer it used to stop at 11 every morning, the passengers would get off and go into the store for cokes and postcards, and I'd race up the. beach to get my letters on the boat. The launch cracked up, so I'm Told, but in the^ old tradition of "neither snow nor'sleet nor shades';''Of night stopping these couriers on their -appointed rounds", the mail has been delivered this summer by speeembat. In winter, sorrtetimes, mail is delivered over the ice. i *-.*••• * -' • • . . , • AT PRESENT OUR ONLY need up here is for a piscatorial psychologist to see why the fish won't bite. Some of the best minnows in the territory have .been offered to them, but the fish are snoopy. Pop caught two nice walleyes when we first got here. We had one for Friday night supper and we might just as well eaten the other. We on a stringer in the river and the next morning it was long ago. And I think he told his pals the consequences 6f"b"itihg on the lines of dhose Algona anglers. •;.-- .. ; -.-,- -.-.•-.••* * 41 , ; OH WELL, WE STILL HAVE A HAM, 2 chickens and the soup. To my notion, no lake trip is complete without bean soup. It's. )ust like apple pie without the cheese or a kiss without the'squfize. -You eat more up here but you are less finicky about balanced diets, fancy seasonings .and saucers under the coffee cups. Celia brought a tablecloth along, and although it is the first onfe used in my E resence in the cottage, it is not really necessary. Neither are daily aths, shaves, pin-curls in hair or alarm clocks. But of all things'in a short trip up here most delightful by its absence is the ring--of the telephone. We don't have to keep any appointments, phone out any news, fix any furnaces, .patch any flats'or do anything we don't really want to. It'll all start back in Algona Monday morning, but by then we'll all be better equipped to cope with it. , ; I AM'NOT USING ANY recipes this weekend and I don't have one along to share with you. But I did find this poem in a little leaflet here in the cottage. It had a message for me, and maybe it will have for you too. It's entitled, "Three Gates". If you are tempted to reveal, A tale to you someone has told, About another, make it pass, Before you speak, three gates of gold. These narrow gates: First, "Is it true?" Then, "Is it needful?" In your mind, Give truthful answer. And the next, Is last and narrowest, "Is it kind?" And if to reach your lips at last, It passes through these gateways three, Then you may tell the tale, nor fear What the result of speech may be. —GRACE.
