Description : Excerpt from Signs and Seasons I was looking intently at the clouds to see which way they moved, when the birds came into my field Of vision. I should never have seen them had they not crossed the precise spot upon which my eye was fixed. As it was near sundown, they were probably launched for an all-night pull. They were going with great speed, and as they swayed a little this way and that, they suggested a slender, all but in visible, aerial serpent cleaving the ether. What a highway was pointed out up there! An easy grade from the Gulf to Hudson's Bay. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Description : Excerpt from The Roll of the Seasons: A Book of Nature Essays The natural year is a ring which can be said to begin and to end nowhere. The diarist is most likely to open his notes on the first of January, because that is the day on which his artificial year opens. As soon as the winter solstice is past we look for signs of waking on the part of flowers and more animate creatures, yet many of them begin their new round of life as soon as the hush of autumn has fallen. The time of the aconite's high summer is commonly called winter. Spring, according to the calendar, does not come till after the snowdrop has blossomed and set its seed. Summer isthe autumn of a very large part of the floral world and the winter of many spring insects. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Description : Excerpt from The Popular Science Monthly Gnorance of the future can hardly be good for any man or nation; nor can forecast of the future in the case of any man or nation well interfere with-the business of the present, though the language of colonial politicians seems often to imply that it may. No Canadian farmer would take his hand from the plough, no Canadian ar tisan would desert the foundery or the loom, no Canadian politician would become less busy in his quest of votes, no industry of any kind would slacken, no source of wealth would cease to flow, if the rulers of Canada and the powers of Down ing Street, by whom the rulers of Canada are supposed to be guided, instead of drifting on in darkness, knew for what port they were steering. For those who are actually engaged in mould ing the institutions of a young country not to have formed a conception of her destiny - not to have made up their minds whether she is to re main forever a dependency, to blend again in a vast confederation with the monarchy of the mother-country, or to be united to a neighboring republic - would be to renounce statesmanship. The very expenditure into which Canada is led by her position as a dependency in military and political railways, in armaments and defenses, and other things which assume the permanence of the present system, is enough to convict Cana dian rulers of flagrant improvidence if the per manency of the present system is not distinctly established in their minds.

Description : Excerpt from On Some Antiquities in the Neighbourhood of Dunecht House Aberdeenshire It was known to the archaeologist that there were ogam inscriptions in the district, two Of them being among the most important in Caledonia; and that within an easy motor drive there was a minuscule inscription of six lines Of which no satisfactory explanation had been given. This inscription they had visited in a previous year. Further, the quick eye Of the hostess of Dunecht had caught sight of some curious sculptures on a stone by the road-side on the way to the minus cule inscription; and other like stones in the neighbourhood had been shewn in Stuart's two volumes of Sculptural Stones of Scotland. The suggestion was then made that for the sake of visitors at Dunecht a sort Of guide book should be prepared, giving some simple description of the several Objects and their meaning and uses.
