Casii' Logan. Yellowstone Park, Aug.
24, via Livingstone, Aug. 25.— The white
frost was still thick on the branches"of
grass and leaves of shrubs and plants,
glistening in the morning sunlight like
diamond dust, and the mists and vapors
rested close to the surface of the river, as
the president and party mounted at 7:05
a. m. and started out for a day's march.
Last night was the coldest we have ex
perience::, being twenty degrees at G a.
m., and in the mess tent, water which
had Leen served out a few moments before
the party sat down for breakfast, formed
a network of ice.
Tie trail was very crooked to-day and
led over mountains covered with pine and
large quantities of Indian tea, a diminutive
species of a green whortleberry, five to ten
inches high, found only in timber and at
an altitude of from 800 to 1,000 feet. The
Indians are fond of the tea made from the
dried leaves and stems of this plant, and I
have been told by those who have drank it
that it forms a pleasant substitute for our
Yesterday we remained at Camp Strong
and Us surroundings are worthy of more,
than a passing notice. It was surrounded
by mountains clad with evergreen trees of
all sizes, from young seedlings up to ma
ture age, scattered singly, grouped in clus
ters, or massed into dark forests.
Our tents were p : c bed on the banks of ]
Snake river, whiten hero possesses all tho I
attributes of a first class trout stream. !
Here is pure water, rippling over pebbly i
bottom?, with here and there swift cur
rents, eddies, and deep holes. The pres
ident and Senator Vest, our two most ex
pert fishermen, made the best of their stay,
and scored the greatest victory yet achiev
ed over the finny tribe. At one cast the
president landed three trout, weighing in,,
the aggregate four andjone-foirth pounds ,
and in each of . some -, six " other
casts, he took two fine specimens;
The president secured 1 the greater i weight
and the senator the ' largest number, the
total weight being 105 pounds. The sport
is now about over. The largest one oaught
weighed 3% pounds. " • ;
Looking back over our course from
Fort Washakie, where we first mounted our
horses and abandoned tho wheeled vehicles
and tjok the Indian trail which has led us
through some fertile valleys, across some
bad lands and over rugged mountains,
here many memories linger pleasantly in
the minds of every member :of the party.
The hail storm at Camp Crosby, the dust
which sifted in our tents at Camp
Teton, the toils of the trails over
fallen timbers are lost, forgotten
in a pleasant association of the rest of
the journey. The pictures ot Camp Lin
coln, with its binks of snow lyiug pleas
antly near ami slowly melting near the
snow i'o'a-er trails and which had all the
fresh- of e:ii!y spring, with their ten- I
der forget-me-notsj wild asters, butter
cups aaj Columbia.*— the latter with a
delicate scarcely perceptible shade of blue
in i*.^ rich white blossom for which
man., dee it the most beautiful of wild !
flowers in tht Eoicky mountains. A car
peting of scarlet and blue and gold, and
added to this the white mountain 11 ix rest
ing close to mother tar:!;, at din s»eh pro
fusion as to surest the idea
that the hand of naturo had grasped
some of the star 3 and scattered them in
wanton profusion on the grassy slopes of
his romantic spot.
Camp Arthur wa3 grand beyond the
power of pen to describe, located in a
bend of theGrosvaatre river.and from the
crest of which a trail led looking down on
it. We also got the first good view of .the
royal Tetons or Titans as they should be
called, to the west a forest of pine and
spruce. Mantling the mountain to the
south and east, with ciay and sand stone
rising high in the sky and of a rich red
from its iron coloring masked here and
there by green foliage. The short thick
grass of Little valley furnished splendid
grazing for our animals, and the trout
within twenty vfeet of the tents made the
immediate surroundings most delightful.
Then the Titan basin, as large as the
state of Rhode Island and
recovered at this season of
the year with nutricious grasses, proluee in
evidence of being the winter grazing
grounds of antelope, deer and elk. The
near future must practically determine its
value for stock pnrposes. Then Jackson's
lake, a3 we saw it, from the crest of a high
bluff on our lisa of march, a gigantic s-v.u
--phire, 113 surface fretted and blown into
"white cap? by ths winds which swept down
over Mount Moran moaning, lost them
selves in the gloomy forests beyond. Na
ture, indeed, lias given a royal petting to
this point. It is twelve miles lon^ and
three wide, and on the east and north ridea
are a fringe of Quaker ash and willow
brush, and on the west and couth spruce
and pine clothing "the feet of
the grand Titans, and scrambling
up their sides until vegetation dies out.
Abo?e this are the fissures, chasms, grim
and gray, filled with snow banks, some of
them o0 ) feet deep and of dazzling white
ness in the sun.
Yes, the scenery along our route will
furnish many pleasant memories in years
to come. Enough game has been killed to
satisfy the wants of the party, but to-day
we entered the sacred precincts of the
parkand buffalo and elk can look at us
with perfect safety, for General Sheridan
has given orders that nothing shall be
killed. The members of the party are en
joying their usual good health, are com
mencing, in fact, to realize something in
the way ot robust strength for the invest
ment made in taking a trip of this kind.
SApi^-BBIVAIi AT "OLD FAITHTrrL."
Uppeu Geybeb Basin, Aug. 26. — At 1
o'clock to-day, after a dusty march of
twenty-six miles over a rough trail, the
president and party arrived in the Upper
Geyser Basin of the National park, and
went into catnpeear the old Faithful gey
ser, who greeted m a few moments after
dismounting with one of his early erup
tions that seemed specially to greefc the
chief magistrate. All of us were very tired
and hungry and but few of our number
abandoned their lunch and rushed to a
point for observing the display.
This afternoon was devoted to resting,
bathing and but litile attention was paid
to a geyser being in the im
mediate vicinity. Our camp are
all impressed with the wonders
which surround us. To-morrow will no
doubt prove a d*y of interest and pleasure
in viewing the curious freaks that nature
exhibits in this section. I shall say nothing
oi the whole park and what it contains, as
it has been so often described. I wouldn't
undertake to write up that which has been
so well pictured by Barlow Doane and
o hers. After our ride on horseback 220
n^iles every member of the expedition is in
the best of health. Not an incident of the
slightest character has occurred on the
whole journey to mar our pleasure.

DALBTMPLE FAEM .
Monday forenoon lhß party made a
halt at the famous 75,000 acre Dalrymple
farm throagh which six miles of the North
ern Pacific track runs. The present own
ers of the farm are Oliver Dalrymple,
Geo. W. Cass of Pittsburg, B. P. Cheney,
Boston, S. C. Grandin. An elevated stand
or lookout enabled the twtirists to see 30,000
acres nnder cultivation, and 200 self
binders in operation, and a few threshers
Wheat is the only crop produced on the
farm for export, the hay, oats, etc., being
used for home consumption. The culti
vated portion of the farm is in divisions of
6,000 acres each of the five divisions being;
sub-divided into sub-divisions of 2,000
acres each, all parts of the farm being in
telephonic communication with the head
quarters, each sub-division having a gen
eral superintendent. The farm lands were
bought at the cost of 60 oents to $2 50 per
acre . The cost of buildings, household
goods, machinery, etc., makes an average
of $10 per acre. After this the average
cose to raise a crop, including all repairs
and renewals is $6 per acre. The land
now under cultivation is of the average
value of §25 per acre, and the earnings
§15 per acre. The first crop from 1,200
acres was harvested in 1876, and this sur
face has been added to until now the fig
ure is 33,000 acres. To harvest this crop
200 self-binders are employed, cutting on
an average 15 acres per day. The average
yield this season is 20 bushels per acre of
No. 1 hard, which is tinder contract for
market at §1 per bushel
net, or above the cost of
transportation to market, and it is expec
ted that this year's crop will net $600,000.
One self-reaper is required to each 160
acre?, and a steam thresher to eaoh 1,000
acres, and th© threshers turn out 1,000
bushels each per day. Of cours9 the visit
ors were delighted by the sight and the
interesting description of the farm, only
a small portion of the detail thereof being
here given. From Dalrymple a run -was
THE STEEL FABTC,
one hundred and fifty miles from Fargo.
This is more of a dairy and poultry
than a grain farm. Some 600
cows are kept and, Mr. Steel has gone ex
tensively into poultry raising and expects
to send to market this year 10,000 chick
ens. Having inspected these premises for
an hour the train was run on to Bismarck,
where a public reception was given to Mr.
Hatch and his guests. Gov. Ordway made
an address of welcome, giving some narra
tive of the growth of Dakota. Hon. Mr.
Wyman, of Rhode Island, responded in be
half of the party,concluding by calling out
Uncle Rufu*,who made a witty three-minute
speech., and then called for some songs
by the glee club of the party. Af
ter the exchange of courtesies the train
passed over ths river to Mandan, where it
remained for the night.
THE STABT F3OII MANDAN
was made about- 7 o'clock Tuesday morn
ing, the run being made through a coun
try of interesting scenery brin^infj into
view every four mils new and growing
towns, of which Richardson, 553 miles
from St. Paul, may be mentioned as a
sample. Tho tov?n is only a year old, has
750 population, a handsomo depot, church,
school honee, two hotels, stores and hand
some dwellings. The architecture of some
of the houses would reflect credit upon St.
Anthony hill, or any of tho fashionable
portions of St. Paul. About Ip. m.
Dickinson, 584 miles from St. Paul, was
reached.and a stop of an hour was made,
passing here the east and west bound pas
senger trains of the N. P. R. R. Upon
the arrival of the latter the excurstionists
were greatly gratified to be able to pro
cure" the Daily ! Globe of Monday and
Chicago papers of Sunday. Dickinson
will be a year old town in September next.
It now has a population of 800, several
enterprising stores, hotels, shops, church,
school house, etc. At this place were
found a party of : - ■ : -
Belonging to the Gros Ventres tribe, who
had been permitted to come off their reser
vation to visit the Indian settlement, near.
Livingston. - They were dressed in the cos
tume of their race, decorated with feath
ers, ear rings as big as saucers, blankets,
painted hats, etc. They were in
charge of Crow Breast (big chief)
a huge old fellow, who said he was sixty-,
nine. He had no gray hairs, but wore wire
goggles, and looked the personification of
stolid dignity. la addition to Crow Breast
there were Rabbit Head, Porcupine Head,
Young Wolf, Do,* Baa?, Big Ball, Eidaey
and Bad Gun. The last named, a bright
eyed young fellow, with wonderful leg
gings, an old blue coat and brass buttons,
and tremendons horse pistol, had a com
mission .is ail Indian policeman, which he
exhibited with proud satisfaction. Kidney
was tho duck of the party; his straw hat
was painted in three color?, and stuck with
feather?, his blanket \n>*s of several colors,
: his long hair hung braids eejor^t&d, o?r
sinck with colored wax; he had rings on
hi-* lingers and bells on his toes, bracelets
: en his wrists, huge -oar rings and other in
describable paraphenalia, and to cud all.
as simple a face as was tver Been on a red
! man or an/ other man. Scarcaiy any of

San Fbancisoo, Aug. 25. — Tne competi
tive Knighta Templar drill took place this
afternoon in Bay District park. Long be
fore the beginning of the exercises the
grand stand, which seated 3,000, was
crammed to its utmost and
10,000 more were in the en
closure below. Only three commanderies
competed, Rapier of Indianapolis, Demo
lay of Louisville, and St. Bernard of Chi
cago. Each drilled with twenty-seven,
except St. Bernard, who only drilled
twenty-five. Forty minutes of time was
allowed each drill. The Pacific coast com
manderies refrained from competing,
preferring tha prize to be won by the
eastern knights, whom they regarded as
their guests There were five prizes ir all,
varying in value from f -400 to $500. The
rule was made by tho triennial committee
th?.t iho prizes should become the absolute
pioperty of the winners, and not subject
to further competition. There ware three
judges, all officers cf the United States
army. The tactics constituted sword exer
cises, military evolutions and the Templar
First to appear in the list was the Ra
pier commandery, of Indiauopolis, the
priviliges of the last being conceded to St.
Bernard, of Chicago. At 12 sharp they
advanced accompanied by the baud of the
First United States cavalry, to the north
ern confines of the drill ground, returned
to the judges' stand and wheeling into
line gave the salute. This was a sign for a
great burst of cheering, in
which the two coinpoting comman
dries heartily joined. Tneir drill was ex
cellently performed, The wheeling and
marching by threes much admired, but in
the movement to bugle call they made a
couple of bad breaks calling forth sorrow
ful cries from the crowd and jeopardized
their claim to the first prize.
The Rapiers were followed by the Demo
lays, who as they marched in stately col
umn to the front of the judges' stand, led
by the Eighth United States infantry band
were received with great cheers. Their
drill was watched with much attention.
Some of the more ditlicult movements
elicited great admiration. They drilled
like old veterans.
After them came the St. Bernards, with
Lyon & Healy's Chicago band, and they
were greeted by the immense crowd with a
continuous burst of applause. Their sa
lute to the judges was a signal for renewed
cheering, which was kept up until they be
gan the exercises. , During the first five
minutes they drilled with marked precis
ion, bat after that their drill was com
pletely marred by an unfortunate knight
who persisted in always getting where he
was not wanted. " Before the drill was half
over it became evident the St. Bernards
would not be first, and that the first prize
would lay between tho Dim&loys and Ra
pier?, the unfortunate break of the St.
Bernards depriving them of that hope.
When they retired to their tents the ap
plause wwr tremendo clearly showing
what direction the sympathies of the peo
ple went. At the conclusion of the drill
the tents of the three competing comman
deries were surrounded by knights und
ladies who gnve them quite an ovation.
The first prize was awarded to tho Da
molays of Louisville, the second to the
Rapers of Indianapolis and the third to
the St. Bernard's of Chicago.
The Ciuciuu:iti Annual Kxpogition.
Cincinnati, Aug. 2G. — The annual expo
sition in Music hall and the two buildings
connected with it, built expressly for such
purposes, begins September s and contin
ues until Octobor 7. The character of the
exposition is already determined, placing
it high in the list of thoae successf ol dis
plays given here almost without interrup
tion since 1574. They have from tho first
been affairs conducted by men whose only
motive is a zeal for public approval. The
expenses are guaranteed by public sub
scription, and no dividends are due to any
body. This method has been found to be
satisfactory in every way. The full ca
pacity of the great buildings have been
been alredy taken by exhibitors. The
notable features of the coming exposition
will be the displays of manufacturing in
dustries, machinery and art. In the latter
much space will be given to drawing. The
art opening days will be made attractive by
the efforts of the order of the Cincinnatis
association, formed for the purpose of
presenting pageants similar to those of
Rex in Mardi Gras festivals. Rex will be
in attendance. He will be met on the riv
er and conducted to the exposition Sept.
5 with a royal procession, and both his
majesty and the Cincinnatis with their
brilliant courts will be present at the open
ing addresses. On the night of Sept. G
the Cincinnalis' pageant, comprising
twenty-four cars or floats, will pass
through the streets. A subject will bo an
nounced the day before. It is claimed to
be a triumph in display.
