OFrank M.Warren MANY WILD CREATURES, RARE ELSEWHERE, ARE STILL TO BE FOUND ON ISLE ROYAL This rugged island in Lake Superior is almost as innocent of civilization to-day as in the centuries past,when trappers paddling bywere itsonly visitors. Its ridges, gorges, and cliffs are clothed with heavy virgin forests of pine, birch, and sugar maple. Large herds ofmoose and caribou still roam here. The cow moose seen coming ashore has been feeding in six feet of water. When she puts her headdown tograze onthesucculent vegetation on the bottom, she is entirely submerged (see, also, text, page 312).
