The Philosopher in the Clearing free pdf Excerpt from The Philosopher in the Clearing Some years ago, when I was asked by the editor of the St. Johns News - who must be forgiven in that he did it in ignorance, and never dreamed of the amount of boredom he was preparing to inflict on himself and his readers - to contribute to his paper regularly, I was for a moment inclined to refuse, being appalled at the prospect of having something to write about every week. I had not learned at the time that it is the easiest thing in the world to say it when you have nothing to say, and, very frequently, the hardest thing when you have.

It was late in the fall of one of the fifties when, after a stay of some four weeks in Montreal, I set out to make my abode in a certain village of the Eastern Townships, which was better known to its neighbors at that time by the name of Slab City, than by the one it insisted on being called, though it eventually succeeded in carrying its point. How well do I remember the long day's ride in the stage under a hot sun from St. Johns to Stanbridge East, at which point I rested from my joltings for the night! How exciting was the constantly recurring speculation as to which wheel was coming off first as we rumbled into and out of holes in which a calf might have been buried, and in which occasional cats, young puppies, and other agricultural products were!
