    A beaver colony at the source of every stream would moderate these extremes and add to the picturesqueness and beauty of many scenes that are now growing ugly with erosion. This is appreciative and suggestive. For three centuries they were trapped for their pelts; their furs made great hats. The Methow Project tries to create compatible beaver pairs, a bit like a beaver dating service. And Morgan believed in the capacity of the mind—both human and animal—to progress through experimentation and experience. When the tree was almost cut off, the cutter usually thumped with his tail, at which signal all other cutters near by scampered away.

    Soil is eroding away, river-channels are filling, and most of the streams in the United States fluctuate between flood and low water. In the mean time the battle of Gettysburg had been fought and won, and the army was again advancing into Virginia. Heidi spent a lot of time going to the streams of Alhambra Creek, where the beavers lived. The instant the water reaches the earth, it is hurried away toward the sea, and unless some agency delays the run-off, the rivers would naturally contain water only on the rainy days and a little while after. Among the agencies which best perform the service of keeping the streams ever-flowing, are the forests and the works of the beaver. But this break was often an act of destruction, and it caused a loss of faith in traditional structures and beliefs.

    Morgan Beavers take care of their own. Introduce us to him and his work. Instead, she did the household choresaided by all the fancy new gadgets that made housework a breeze. As a member of the Bellefonte Fencibles, a volunteer company, of which Hon.
