But I have decided that worthy handling of some of these interesting phenomena is beyond me, while others will receive adjustment at the hands of time and so do not call for special con sideration. Hence I add no appendix. The world, by the signs of the day, is turning, or being turned, upside down, and in a few years we may all be at the Antipodes of our former states, as old Sir Thomas Browne might have said. But it is some comfort to me that the real Anti podes are now very well furnished with trout. That being so, the figurative Antipodes will surely not be without them. The future, therefore, need not be wholly strange and alarming.
