And besides--what's the good of talking sentiment when we are just men together? What a man wants of women is a good deal more than all this `motherhood'!"We soon dozed off again.

"I've always thought it was a pathetic sight, both ways--to see a man or a woman taking a dog to walk--at the end of a string."

"Why, yes--some low forms, of course."

"Oh, don't croak, Van! If it isn't there, we'll find our way down somehow--the boat's there, I guess."

Of course we had looked at the land itself--eagerly, but we were too high and going too fast to see much. It appeared to be well forested about the edges, but in the interior there were wide plains, and everywhere parklike meadows and open places.

"More like a lot of women!" I thought to myself disgustedly, and then remembered how little like "women," in our derogatory sense, they were. She was smiling at me, reading my thought.

Our Venture

As for Ellador: Suppose you come to a strange land and find it pleasant enough--just a little more than ordinarily pleasant-- and then you find rich farmland, and then gardens, gorgeous gardens, and then palaces full of rare and curious treasures-- incalculable, inexhaustible, and then--mountains--like the Himalayas, and then the sea.

<"Both!" insisted Terry."That's the business risk we must take. I'm going--if I break my neck." There was no changing him.

"It was a butterfly that made me a forester," said Ellador. "I was about eleven years old, and I found a big purple-and-green butterfly on a low flower. I caught it, very carefully, by the closed wings, as I had been told to do, and carried it to the nearest insect teacher"--I made a note there to ask her what on earth an insect teacher was--"to ask her its name. She took it from me with a little cry of delight. `Oh, you blessed child,' she said. `Do you like obernuts?' Of course I liked obernuts, and said so. It is our best food-nut, you know. `This is a female of the obernut moth,' she told me. `They are almost gone. We have been trying to exterminate them for centuries. If you had not caught this one, it might have laid eggs enough to raise worms enough to destroy thousands of our nut trees--thousands of bushels of nuts--and make years and years of trouble for us.'

<"It's no use rushing them, anyhow," I was absolutely holding on to Terry. "We know they can out-run and out-climb us."Of history--outside their own--they knew nothing, of course, save for their ancient traditions.

"You're talking nonsense--masculine nonsense," the peaceful Jeff replied. He was certainly a warm defender of Herland. "Ants don't raise their myriads by a struggle, do they? Or the bees?"

Źݲڶڽ־ᣬҸʲô I did my best, keenly interested as I have always been in sociology and social psychology, to reconstruct in my mind the real position of these ancient women. There were some five or six hundred of them, and they were harem-bred; yet for the few preceding generations they had been reared in the atmosphere of such heroic struggle that the stock must have been toughened somewhat. Left alone in that terrific orphanhood, they had clung together, supporting one another and their little sisters, and developing unknown powers in the stress of new necessity. To this pain-hardened and work-strengthened group, who had lost not only the love and care of parents, but the hope of ever having children of their own, there now dawned the new hope. ϸ

Upon which they wanted to know which method has been proved best--and we had to admit that so far as we knew there had been no attempt at comparison, each people pursuing its own custom in the fond conviction of superiority, and either despising or quite ignoring the others. ϸ
