(Continued from ILrst page.) lowed up in the foam and spray beneath. NIAGARA FALLS. Canada has a right perhaps to claim a larger share in the posess ion of Niagara Falls than the Unit ed States as it is over the Canadian or Horse Shoe Falls, that four fifths of the water falls. Goat Island with 1300 ft in width, parts the river just above the falls; on the left is the American Falls with its width of 1,060 feet; on the right is the Horse Shoe Falls with a curve 3,000 feet, making a total width of a mile. To watch that glorious body ofwater descend 160 feet over the falls, with its ceaseless roar makes one realize how insignificant he is and reduces him to silence, and to awe. The river thunders as it goes over the rocks, and thick mist rises. The sun paints all the shades ot the rainbow in the mist. The wat ers bnbble and seethe and foam in their bed below. Just here I am reminded that photographers, artists and writers have failed to describe Niagara Falls so, I will not attempt further Eveu Mr. Dooley says oue would hava to bankrupt the r.ng lish language.
