I huve I!ad little experience in rid- Ing over moorhlnds, but I remember the prairies. They looked as even as a floor, as sinootl~ and safe ahnost as a macadam road. and covered with short grass they spread out as far as the eye could reach, Sixteen miles we couhl see to the southeam over an un- broken plain to where a single cot- tonwood stood. But there were soft marshy places one found if he set out to ride far; there were gopher holes, and lmeven dangerous spot8 where prairie wolves had burrowed into the ground Or where grotmdhogs had slept during the winter. One had to be cau-" tlous and to remember that the appar- ently tmhroken surface of the prairie had its uneven places where a horse might stumble and the rlder's life be in danger. But In spite of Its spots the moor. land Is a very beantiful place; in spite of Its gopher liolcs and Its wolf dens the prairie had Its fascinations; it was wonderful. Impressive, roman- tie and ~atisfylKg. It IS not strange that wi~en we ex- amine the lives and characters of hu, man beings we should find them like the moorland or the prairie--sol; places, occasionally gopher holes. marshy spots, and it should not de. tract seriously from the strength and beauty of their lives to find that they were not perfect---nothing human Is, ,o.
