[ trlotism, nothing can be more ef
fective than familiarity with what
may be Imaginatively called the
, physiognomy, more scientifically the
, physiography, of one's native land.
Th e Frenchman loves his country as
ho loves his mother, because he is
familiar with every feature of its
, countenances.
The French are not great travelers
. abroad, but they ar e great travelers
at home, "rt'hen a Frenchman feels
the desire, or the necessity for "a
change of air," lie does not cross the
frontiers or the ocean; he goes to
look at some other part of his own
country, and usually a part where
he has often been before.
Thus lie comes to know France
"like a book," or like the face of
one very dear to liirn, and ho carries
into his wanderings over liis home
land that zest fol" the little details
of life which seems to give the
French a greater fullness of enjoy
ment, without any appearance of ex
cess. than his journey irt the same
way that he takes his dinner.
We need something of this in
America, and I have just been read
ing with delight an address mado by
Professor-G. 11. Perkins, of tho Uni
versity of Vermont, on the physi
ography of the Green Mountain
I am not a Vermonter, and I have
seen far less of Vermont than I
should like to see, but what Pro
fessor Perkins points out fills me
with enthusiasm for that great lit
tle State. It is not that lie has put
any literary chanmr into his address
■ —lts effect is of a different kind; it
throws open a door. It lifts a cur
tain, it reveals a face that fasci
nates. the face of a beautiful, ro
mantic land filled with exquisite
valleys and swelling hills, many of J
which have yet no names, and en
riched with clear waters, and with
stores of costly granites and mar
; bles of matchless beauty.
"In single townships there are |
thirty or rorty peaks of noteworthy I
I size, and in some instances more
than half of these have never been
That could not have happened In
France and ought not to have hap
pened in an American State. Every
hill that is big and Ivigh enough to
be "noteworthy" should have a
name. Even (1 mere number, as we
have lately seen on the road to Metz
anil around Verdun, mav serve to
make a hill immortal in history,
| when, if it had had no individual
'designation its glory would have
been lost in nameless oblivion.
From Professor Perkins' descrip
tion of Vermont, with its double
system of mountains, the Green
Mountains and the Taronic Moun
tains, its easy north-and-sonth roads
and its hard east-and- west roads,
J Its 400 lakes, big and little, its in- ;
j numerable round-topped mountains, j
many rising 3,000 and 4,000 feet eio- j
vation. its green valleys and dells \
and dingles, its memorials of the I
days when it lay beneath a sea whose |
western waves washed the feet of 1
j the Adirondacks, and its Granite !
| Hills which enable Vermont to "lead, 1 ,
j the world in the production of this '
stone as it does in marble"—from I
1 these things one sees that here is '
an admirable place to develop the j
love of American home scenery.
I think with concern of those '
nameless peaks that, Professor Per- !
kins tells of, like' unchristened chil- j
dren of Mother Earth they stand !
there, mute, waiting, shut out of the'
fold of the nominate, abashed by
their undeserved anonymity. Bright
eyes admire their baptised brothers,
j and gay voices ask for theirs, hut
' the reply is only, "They are name
[ less."
"And maybe they hear, and wonder
. And marvel, out In the cold."
The red men may have had names
for some of these, and if they could
1 be recovered they would he an
adornment to the geographies and
; an enrichment of the vocabulary of
the Vermonters.
I hope that no reader will think
that I am indulging in mere sentl
mentalism. There is the solidest
kind of reason behind the feeling
that the notable natural features of
every landscape should have indi
vidual names. Monadnock because
it has a name, and a sonorous one,
is not only known everywhere, but
, is far dearer to the dwellers around
its feet than it would otherwise be.
Fancy Pike's Peak without a name! !
Recall your youth, if you had the I
fortune to be born in the country, I
1 and see how the names of the hills, |
[ whose high frost-crusted heads !
sparkled in the Winter moonbeams, |
; cling in your memory. The starry 1
heavens would lose half their power j
• over the imagination if the bright- '
est stars did not bear names. But
j j this is something that needs no ar- 1
, gument. What does, perhaps, need I
■ j enforcing upon the attention is the 1
■(immense pleasure and advantage of.
' I studying the "physiognomy" of your;
j j country.

i ed. The roof and part of the sec- j
onrl floor were consumed.
A load of straw which had been I
brought in front Cloverly Heights |
, Farms started the fire. C. M. Shoop, ;
Seventeenth and Sycamore streets, j
discovered the flames. He was one i
of the men from *the farm who
brought the hay. and said he was
sitting on the wagon, which was
standing In a small alleyway be

he smelled smoke. Ille looked
around, and saw flames bursting

He jumped off the wagon, crying
"fire," and Thomas Schmidt, asso
ciated with his father, Bernard
Schmidt, in the making business,
phoned an alarm to the Mt. Pleas
ant Fire Company, Fifteenth street.
A few minutes later another alarm
was rung from Box 332, at Walnut
and Balm streets.
Hot Aslies Probable Cause
In_ the garage is a furnace, and
next' to it a window, which opens I
into the alleyway whore the wagon- :

thought that some one firing Mie '
furnace threw hot ashes through the [
window and they landed under the ,

spread so quickly that the stable
was in flames and dense volumes of
smoke were pouring skyward when

To Leave For Washington
Tlie storm which had hung over
the coast for two days passed off to
sea last night and the day opened
The meeting at Mechanics Hall
was set for 2.30 o'clock in the af
ternoon. All the baggago of the
| presidential party of forty-flve per
| sons was brought ashore and put
I on a special train which was made
! ready to start for Washington with !
the President and his associates at j
4.30 p. m.
The Ossipee, a former coast guard
cutter now in naval service, was the
leader of the welcoming flotilla. She
displayed the flagship of Rear Ad
miral Spencer S. Wood, head of this
naval district, who was aboard and
! she carried also the official greet
ing party including Mhyor Peters
land Major General Clarence R. Ed
wards. Six other steamers were
\ crowded, with Bostoninns. Led by
| a submarine chaser and with eight
\ other submarine chasers flanking
j them, the fleet proceeded down the!
harbor with bands playing patriotic
airs and colors flying.
After tlie President and Mrs. Wil
son and the members of the presi
dential party had bden transferred
to the Ossipee, the President's flag as
| commander-in-chie£,of the navy dis
placed that of Rear Admiral Wood
jon the main truck of the Ossipee
and the cutter started for Commnn
| wealth Pier. Aboard the cutter
j Mayor Peters welcomed the nation's
j executive on his return to home
shores and to Boston.
' Tlio trip up the harbor was mark
! Ed l) the continuous sounding of
) whistles by craft in the harbor, and
as the Ossipee came abreast of tlie
I several forts tlie presidential salute
lot' twenty-one guns wasiflred. Con
voying seaplanes swept overhead, fly
j ing in circles to keep abreast of the
' Ossippee.
The weather was somewhat rough
as the welcoming licet made their
I way down the harbor and several
| of the excursion steamers seemed in
I imminent danger of overturning as
j tlio crbwds rushed to tlie sides for
!a v iew of .the President.
; When the Ossipee came alongside
! President Wilson turned and shook
hands with Captain McCauley of the
' George Washington and waved fare
| well to the troops and others re
, muining aboard. As he stepped
.aboard the Ossipee the George Wash
ington tired the presidential salute
|of twenty-one guns. (Immediately
I the other boats took it up and for
several minutes there was a deufen
' ing roar.
When the Ossipee neared the Com
! monwealtli dock many of the little
! licet of boats which bad escorted
| her up tlie harbor dropped asert, but
the submarine chasers which acted
) as a guard, were still on duty as she
i tied up to tlie side of tlie pier. They
, had orders to stand by until the
I Presidential party had disembarked,
j A roar of cheers greeted the Pres
ident as soon as the crowd on the
1 pier could make out the group in
• which he stood on board the naval
j cutter. He flourished his hat in
.'acknowledgement, bowed and smiled.
! Especial precautions had been
'• taken to safeguard the progress of
| the Chief Executive through tlie
i city, and details of secret service men
. anil police detectives were numer
. ons along the route of the parade.
I Fifty mounted policemen headed the
! procession while Troop A, of the
! .state guard, mounted, acted as the
: President's escort. The guard of
j honor formed a double row on each
! side of the street all the way from
| the pier to the Copley-Plaza Hotel,
I where suites were reserved for tlie
i Presidential narty, and beyond that
I point to Mechanics Hall. Each man
in tlie line stood within three feet
of the one next liinj, and strict or
ders were given that no one was to
