Photograph by Putnam & Valentine WATER-LILY POND AT HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA The boy on the right is also giving baby brother a "sail" esque as any in Holland, such as the mountain gorges and blue-grass pastures of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal from Washington to Cumberland, or the his toric Mohawk Valley of the Erie Canal a desert with colors as heavenly as those of the Sahara and, though devoid of pic turesque camels and Arabs, adorned with the most extraordinary cacti and desert vegetation on earth, and studded with marvelous works of the human hand like Salt Lake City; great fresh-water lakes, on which you can take a voyage of one thousand miles on ocean liners; Alaska, possessing the grandest glaciers in the world outside the polar regions, fiords more impressive than Norway's, and mountains like Mt. McKinley, which towers nearly one mile higher than the loftiest peak in Europe. Any of our readers could spend an en tire lifetime seeing nature's masterpieces within our boundaries and not reach the end of the catalogue. -Ii5.'
