A.CIO-, R.A., 7, 312 MOUNTAIN, STREAM AND COVERT Country Lfe in Literature ECAUSE of the climate we so naturally abuse, B there is no place like England for the pleasures of the country-rain and sunshine, snow and frost, bring out a world of beauties in an enchanting variety of landscape. There are lakes and streams that are swarming with fish, in spite of the growth of rnanufacturing industries game abounds in field, fell, and wood, notwithstanding occasional indifference to preserving it and a succession of invigorating sports fah in with the several seasons. It is no amotlr propre of patriotism that makes us believe that in these matters we are far better off than our neighbours and indeed they are ready to acknowledge it themselves, by cultivating the tastes that are instincts with EngIishrnen. You have only to cross the Channel to be conscious at once of a change. There is as charming scenery among the orchards of Normandy as any to be found in the hop-gardens of Kent. The granite precipices of 2 I 2 COUNTRY LIFE Penmarch, and the Pointe de Raz on the Breton coast are nearly as wild as anything in Devon or Cornwall.
