Description

Excerpt from Border-Land in Symbols On the Lewis river, in the State of Washing ton, some bee hunters found one tree from which they took twenty-five gallons of the most perfect honey. There were many trees in the mountains that contained as much honey as did the one they cut. The valley of the Lewis river has never been reputed as being a land flowing with milk and honey. There is honey in the Lewis river valley; but one must hunt for it or they will not find it. Mark the bees with lint and follow them to their home, and the honey can be located easily. A rancher living in the mountains of the same valley and some distance from a wagon road, carried his cream to market by fastening two ten-gallon cans of cream to a pack saddle on a pony. One pony thus carrying cream, got away from his owner, ran down the mountain, and when the lid fell from the cans the cream was splashed high up on the trees and along the trail. The valley does not flow with milk, however, there is a plenty of milk and cream in the valley and I presume many times more milk than is, or ever was, in Palestine. With all the beauties of Solomon's Temple, there is no well posted Mason who believes that the Temple ever was anything more than a symbol referring to some spiritual truth. No one knows where it stood; no archeologist can point to the location; not a fragment of the structure is known to exist - all its beauty is in its symbols.
