This raatte^ must iiot be reprinted without special, permission.] Storm Kinp. The Highlands arc not as high as some mountains, and yet they are tall enough to bump their beads ^against the cloud!". Storm King does this sn often that he has become a local ba- romettr. Whenever be is clear the weather will be the same, but when the clonds gather like a frown on the brow of the old mountain look for trouble. This very human quality is what gave his royal majesty the name of Storm icing. I'rlor to that reihrlsteuinj he was called Butter hill. Inlng tells bow he came by that labt^l so much better than any of the rest of us can hotie to do that it is idle to re()eat the tale. In brleft It Is that a certain man, carrying a flrkin of butter, was chased by Indians. Pouting his way .through the stones npd underbrush to the top of the mountain and finding his foes constantly paining on him, he deilljorafely sat down on his butter firkin and slid down the almost perpendicular side of the mountain to the river's edge. This was not making a blazed trnll. but a greased trail. When he reached the bottom there was nothing of the firkin except one or two nails In the tub, but the man escaped. In the same way Bull hill, now made more fashionable and dignified ai Mount Taurus, got its name from the fact that a bull jumped over the mountain and broke Its neck. Anthony's Nose w^ns so called from a man whose nasal protuberance was the wonder of the region. Naturally enormous, this organ had been Increased by a thirst like that of Bip Van Winkle and by a choice assortment of carbuncles. Storm King stands by the side of Cro'nest and is the last of the Highlands on the west shore. At its foot nestles the village of Cornwall, where X. P. Willis and ^. P. Roe wrote in the old days and where Amelia Barr and Julian Hawthorne still sojourn when the mood strikes them. But the old mountain offers no such brave front to the people in Cornwall as he does to us across the river. Here we look always on his rocky face as it runs sheer to the -water's edge. He is Imposing In all moods, but Is most so when crowned with clouds. Yet he has bis softer monaent?. and when the sun sets over him, ns It does each night from my little platform, he becomes a thing of glory. liwc as they did In the locusts at homi when I was a boy. I haver ntJt 8t <44Mi3 to analyze what constitutes-the'^en' cbantment In their relteiSstlonB,' B« ! strong a hold have they on the afer* age. man that If there are no katydids In heaven he will' feel that something Is lacking. I Some fanciful writers assert tBat these light hearted insect folk: constantly disputing, one saying that "Katy did" and the other as constantly asserting that "Katy .didn't" This has been repeated till It is threadbare-and monotonous. It has been said in<80Bi^ essays and bromidlc poetry. Those wW have not enough'get.up some fresh conceit retail it In print or in conversation as though it were a new di.scovery. I have no doubt tbat the antiquarians will find on-the.-4ab^ lets on the second city under Bab5<l«a something about "Katy did and-KaQr didn't." As a matter of fact, nothing of the sort occurs. The katydids carry on-M dispute. After listening to them very carefully I am ready to take my oatb that they are unanimous. Every moflH er's son of them atid daughter UMe^ wise says "Katy did." It-is a chorus o< affirmations. There Is not a discord'of negation In it. That Is what glVes -thft charm to the song. It Is only thfln^wfie argues or disputes In words.- If atJl' mals have any mlsunderstandingi, there LM but little talk on- the snbJeHT but a fight or a foot race -at onee. Man, however, lifts up his Toleemnd contends by the day, the year and 't*s century.. And It was In the effort to find some other living thins that ifli dulged In the same futile and discordant habit that caused him to fasten this libel on the inoffensive katydid. The Man Who Couldn't Stand the QtUet. It is strange what city life will do to some people. For example, a friend of mine wanted to live with nature and rented a cottage aixiut a mile or two from the river on tbe other side of Mount Tuunis. His enthusiasm licfore going'out to his earthly paradise was of the effer\-e8ccnt variety. lie could not talk for two consecutive minutes without dragging In some reference to It. He sta.vcd In that cottage exactly one night. The nest morning lie had a wild look in his eye.«, and nothing could hold him from BrDsdway and his tucked in flat In the side of a cIIfT at One Hundred and Umpty-uniptb ; street. No more of nature for him. Nor would he even talk about It. The. thing was like a skeleton In a closet, too horrl'ole for the publicity of conversation. It was six months before I could get blm to take me Into his confidence. Then the grewsome secret came out He couldn't stand the quiet. He was so used to the discordant din of his deaj Manhattan that the sweet silence of nature was like a nightmare. No one could describe the terror of that one night on the hillside. In vain be listened for the musical sounds of the "L" trains, for the satisfying click of flat wheels, for the shrieks of whistles, the sounds of revelers lu the morning hours and ihe tin pan accents op- the phonograph in the next flat. These sounds would have lulled him to sleep as tlH» mother's lullaby docs the fretful infant.' But In a solitude wliere there was uothing but the song of the katydids and crickets or the distant voice of mountain streams the stillness l>eat tu upon his cars, kept hliu awake aud made him afraid. There Is a legend In the nelghliorhood of another New York mau who came here to live with natwro. but for the truth of this I will not vouch. I have enough mendacity of ray own to answer for without becoming responsible for that of other people. As tbe tale goes, this man on his first night had much the same terrifying experience as my friend, but he bad more grit. He decided to stick It out, so be Invented t contrivance just outside his window that would beat tin pans. Jangle scrap Iron and grind tMwiders tc^gether. After thQt be slept in peace. Midnight. - •TIs midnight over all tlie slec^ng land.- •TIs midnight o'er the deep bhte of tb» •ky. 'TIs silence o'er the world boMs sUU command.

The Song of the Ettydidl*. If there are some mosqaltoes at my tipi>ed-up farm, there are more katydids. There Is always some recompense If we but have eyes to see or ears to bear. If there bad beca no George III., there tvould have been no Washington. The katydid Is the most Industrious optimist In tbe world. He sings tbe aime song «C Jo^ nlgbt. but doe» tt so eheerfully and heartily that It never grows old. I have listened to katydids now nearly forty years, and tbey have the same ^harm for me as at tbe Ppgtanlnc. Thsy stoft My Kingdom For a Name. As everybody in this section of the world names bis place, I 'have concluded that I should have a label for my uptllted and wedg ?^gh88e4 fcjnjj, but It Is harder thau^am pg a D{i^y. One man suggested "Gateway View," but that Is too highfalutin, tbe name being bigger than tbe farm. I tnyself have thought of a number of names, but can decide on none of them for keeps. When coming here we Intended to raise about 400 chickens, which finally dwindled to fourteen. In th^ fever of my fond draaros- oUitinm I thought of naming the place "Hen- ruost-on-Hudson," 'Bui the*'liens fulled to materialize the name had to be abandoned. Then another friend wanted me to raise Swiss goats. He said there were millions In It I got the goat fever also, and as I planned how my Swiss flock would leajl from crag to crag I concluded that I would name the farm "Goats' Rest." ;.Tha dream, however, went like the other, and in the end I got only two goats Of rather plebeian origin, so that .na«ie was out of It Tbe mountain at the back part of my upturned farm used called "Btill Hill," so tbe next name I selected was "Bnllsfoot" My neighbors' objected, however, on the ground that tbe asaim- taln's name had been LattateA t» Motmt Taurus, so that nam* west Simmering also. Then I gave op in despair. 'J.- --If anybody knows of a ulc«-name that is not working, please send it Im The prize winner will have bis name ' printed ail over the Vnited -States.

As General ButterfieM's place near here is called "Cragslde,*r Ining's farm, twenty miles below, is known as "Sunnyside," and John Burroughs' wilderness, a little farther up the river. Is denominated "Slabsldes/' these names must be avoided. ' Competitors can take any other side, however. This country Is young. Humanity Is young.
