Excerpt from Nature's Realm, Vol. 2: January, 1891
St. Lawrence is fed by the mightiest bodies of fresh water on earth. Immense as is the vol ume of water it pours. Into the ocean, any one who has traversed all the immense lakes that feed it, and tor the. Surplus waters of which it is the only channel to the sea, wonders that it is not even more gigantic than it is. Not one drop of the waters ofthe five great lakes finds its way to the ocean save through this gigan tic, extraordinary and wondrously beautiful river. No wonder, then, that it should despise the rain and defy the sunshine.
