School days come tc mind, when we studied about the Alps, the snowy peaks of Switzerland. How far away those days seem, as we sit here in Zurich's boulevard, and see them glistening in the setting sun! Then graduation day rises in memory. Thought long and deep has been bestowed on that portant essay, the crowning victory at. the. end of High School life. We see the girl our own close friend advance to the front of the platform and read. all-im- -; fair-haire- "Beyond the Alps Lies Italy." A 1 d . Her little white gloved: paper, perceptively trembles.' She is conscious that every eye is upon her; that everyone there is going with her on that jouraey over the Alps. So young, so fair, how could she sense that life was like the Alps, towering spectre-likfar,,over there? Zurich's lake is washing at our feet; the sun glints on the ripples made by the passing craft.- These must be the little worries of life, vexations, and not easily overcome. How much lies between thfcm and the silent Alps! It .is so pleasant to sit here, the city's noise sounding like a far off babble, lulling, the mind'to .rest. But this is riot the way to cross the Alps, to find Italy. Jso! We must climb up those freezing heights, past the glacier and the snow. Now down deep defiles, where the unwary may stumble or fall, though clinging to bush or bough. Shall we go down to darkness and despair? Despair?. No! There is a beacon light, though we may catch but its slightest gleam. Upward, on we go, past the rubicon. The height is scaled, the snow in many cascades and "water falls flows down the mountain side, and we have found Italy. 0, land of sunny skies art thou the all and all? Vividly rises the school scene, the fluttering white dress of the wondering girl, the poise oi the sanguine boy. The reading is ended; the sweet melody is borne on the air. The school scene fades away, and we are still beside the living waters of Lake Zurich, suddenly awakened from the dream of long ago, the Alps a living reality, wonderful, yet unknown, stretching far away over there. This side the Alps, the ice and snow, The other, foaming waters flow; This side forbidding, silent, grand, The other Italy's fair land. Impassable may seem the height, The dazzling snow may blind our sight, IJeyond, the flowers and verdure teem, e And Italy, our dream. Lydia D. Alder. life-tim- and-holding-tlie-dainty e . . , - .
