In the same way Bull liUI. now made more fashionable nnd. dipilfied o< Mount Taurus, got Its name from the fact that a bull Jtmiped over the mountain and broke Its neck.

Naturally enormous, thii organ had been mcreased by a thirst like that of Kip Van Winkle and by a choice assortment of carbuncles. Storm King stands by the^ side of Cro'ncst and Is the last of the High-, lands on the west shore. At its fool j nestles the village of Cornwall, where' N. P. Willis and E. P.

VIekmrs The Kan Who Cooldn't Stand tha Qnlet. I It is strange what city life will do to some people. For example, a friend of mine wanted to live with nature aud ronted a cottage about a mile or. two from the river on the other aide of Mount Taurus. His enthusiasm before 8«>lug out to his earthly paradise was of the effervescent variety. He could not talk for two consecutive minutes without dragglnK In some reference to It. Ue sta.ved In that cottage exactly one night. The next morning tic bad a wild look In bis eyoii. nnd nothing could hold him from Broadway and hia tucked in flat In the.side of a cliff at One Hundred and Umpty-umpth street. No more of nature for him. Nor would he even talk about It. The thing was like a skeleton In a closet, too horrible for the publicity of conversation. I It was six months before 1 could get him to take me Into his confidence. Then the grewsome secret came out. He couldn't stand the quiet. He was so used to Ihe discordant din of his dear Msubattan that the sweet silence of nature was like a nightmare. No oue could describe the terror of that My- Kingdom. For a Ifame. As everybody in this section of the world names Ids place. I have con eluded that I should have a label foi my uptilted and wedge shaped farm, but it is harder than naming a baby. One man suggested "Gateway View." but that is too Iilghfalutfii, the name being bigger than the farm. I myself have thought of a number of names, but can decide on none of them fdi keeps. When coming here we Intended to raise about 400 chickens, which finally dwindled to fourteen. In tbe fever of my fond dreams of hens I thought of tiamlng the place "Hen- roost-on-Hudson." but aa the heui failed to materiallxe tbe name had to be abandoned. Then'another friend wanted me to ralae Swiss goats. Ue said there were millions In it I got the goat fever also, and aa I planned bow my Swl^s flock would leap from crag to crag I conclnded that I would name the fsrm /'Ooats' Rest." The dream, however, went like the other, and In the end I got only two goats of rather plebeian origin, so that name was out of it. The mountain at the back part of my upturned farm used to be called ''Bull Hill," so the next name I selected was "Bullsfoot" My neighbors objected, however, on the ground that the moun- tarn's name had been Latinized to Moimt Tatirus, so . that name went glimmering also. Then I gave tip in despair. 'If anybody knows of a nice name that is not working, please send it in. The prize winner will have his name printed all over the United States, Canada and Samar and. In addlttoo. one night on tbe hillside. In vain he listened for the musical sounds of the * will have the proud consciousness that ••L" trams, for the satisfying click of he has relieved a fellow being from flat wheels, for the shrieks of whistle>>. anguish. As General Bntterfield's tbe sounds of revelers in the morning place near here is called "Craiside," hours and the thi pan accents of .the! Irvlng's farm, twenty miles below, is phonograpb in the next flat These known as "Sunnyslde." and John Bnr- sotmds would have lulled htm to sleep rongbs* wUdemess. a little farther tip as the mother's lullaby does the fretful. the river, is denominated "Slabsldes," Infant But in a solitude wbere there was nothing but the song of the katydids and crickets or tbe distant voice of mountain streams tbe stillness l>eat In upon his cars, kept him awake and made him afraid. Thire is a legend in the neighborhood of ii^other New York man who came here to live with nature, but for the trutji of this I will not vouch. 1 have enoili^ mendacity of my own to UD- swer for without liocoming responsible for that of other pet»ple. As the tale goea, this man on his first night bad mucb the same terrifying experience M my friend, but he bad more grit He <ibclde^ to stick It out so he Invented a contrlvnnco Just outside his window aat wonid beat tin pans.

There is always some recom- penaa if we but have eyes to see or aata to bear. If there liad been no Ceorg^; III., there would have been no Washington. -^pse katydid Is the most isdostrioua Oj ^imfit in the world. He sings tba irtisi song of Joy a?J efeht bnt dcsa It ^m ^Ktanj aed: be^rtily tbat It sev-< ftotti old. I hare Ih^^- "jMlw nearly forty, jriirf." and Ihey ^aiae cbahn for ine aa'aftiie these names most be avoided. Competitors can take any other side, however. This country is young. Hnmanity Is young. Both' have ; enough manhood and virtue to work out their own destiny. And by the help of God that das- tiny shall be upward, not downward. I recently had a proof of, the fact that the world moves. Kor aermi years past I have pot only two children in school. Ttds year I pot la three. That Is a sign of progress. About the only fad; I have Is that ef gathering up old prints, pictures anil photographs of paintings. One beauty of thhs Is that It keeps me ao pdor I cannot indulge In otbier fads. Happiness Is no greater became It has a big name. I find that (bd^ag fai the Hudson has no inore thrills flian I used to know from fisblnjg In FM^aJB creek when I was a bdy.
