A MOUNTAIN MKMOHV.
II V 11RV. ItOllKr.T COI.I.YRIt.
I never saw a great mountain uutll 1 went
to Switzerland In tho summer of '05. I
Unci heard of thcni. read about them, seen
pictures past counting of Alp nnd Apiien
Ine, and so I thought I had so learned them
by heart that they would he no great won
der. 1 had also lived among what we called
mountains tho sweet, heathery hills of
tho north of England, with their pray crags
and purplo bloom, their f rco blowing winds,
rippling sunshine, nnd great spaces without
a house or n tree or a hitman being, except
at rare Intervals a shepherd looking ntter
his sheep. Thcso wcro tho mountains to
incs and they still hold n place no other
thine can tako in mv memory nnd love.
As tho nigged hills of New England nro
dear to some, thcso aro dear tome because
I saw tho mist lie on them first when I was
a ehlldj and wandered over them dreaming
about my future, when I was a boy j nnd
preached my first sermons on them to tho
sheep when I was a young man, long be
fore I joined tho church, or had the remot
est Idea of being n preacher. Hut they
were not mountains. Aoit would find
snow thcro in tho deep shadows, when the
meadows were nil n-blooni down by tho
river but the snow was gonohy tho middle
of Slav, nnd the sheep wcro cropping the
sweet new grass that grows hero and tlieio
among the heather and crags, and the
lirmii waters were tumbling down tho
hills racing toward the sea. Thcyuroas
dear tome now ns llcrmon and Sharon
were to the Hebrews In old days; but it
w hi only that pride of our own place, w hlch
makes a Scotchman think Hen Lomond is
grander than tho peak of the Andes, which
made mountain to me out of those great
Hut when I wsnt to th old home eight
veins ago, 1 said, "Now 1 will see Ihc
mountain Rtisliln saw, and Coleridge, and
feel their burden at first hand, and then 1
hliull know this open secret of grandeur
and he nit y once for all, end hold it in my
heart wherever I go." Vet 1 am not sui e

like Wlill tier, and as the heinous are higher
lliaM tlie earth, so will be the vision of the
poet over tint of the farmer. From the
blue blossom at their feet in the whole
sweep of cat tit and heaven, one mini sees,
while another U a seer.
When I was ready. I stinted from Frank
foil. In Germain', to Zurich, hi Sw Itzerland,
on a Saturday morning, and rodo all day
through a beautiful country, looking out
toward nightfall for the mountains. Hut
nliilil came on as we not into Switzeilnnd,
mid long before we came to our journey's
nil it was (puio (tan;, so i went in icsi,
londiur for sunilso: and at sunrise diessei
and went out. Thcold gray tow n.wlllvlls
lolly houses and narrow streets, had begun
to M r. It was a clear murium: In mhl.sum
tner, waim and bliglit. They had told me
at the inn linn ii i would go up 10 me ca
thedral 1 could sec the mountains. I saw
Hie Cathedral at once, and went ill). 1 no
ticed it was llko all the cathedrals hi tho
counti v- slmiilo and irrand in outline, ah
most bnic of ornament, looking as if the
people had said, "Wo will build to tno pat
tern that was shown us in the mount : ns
different as possible from the marvels of
beauty I have seen In England, Franco and
Germauv. at York. Itoucn and Coloirnc.
Thcro was ono beautiful thing a statue of
uuarlemagnc, standing mgti in me lower,

and Charlemagne is ono of tho men 1 " tic
to," ns wo sav hero in the 'West "tho ono
strong man in n blatant land," who bitted
and bridled tho wild life of his time, which
threatened to wipe out the new hopuof the
worm, planted order, esiauiisiicu law,
taught his people how to live, and then,
when me cud came, was set in ins sepui
chre in his meat ivory chair if my niem
oi y serves me with Ids crown on his head
and his sceptre In his hand (the sceptre I
have seen), as If ho would say to Franco,
" v lien vou feci tno old mad outurcaic com
ing, remember Charlemagne, and bo quiet."
I went up the steep, looking at Cliaric
mamc. and ho was lookini: at tho mouiv
tains. I turned around when I had gained
t he lilatrorm. and stood still. wc an re
member times when our whole nature was
stormed by seme quick surprise so that wo
could hardly sec tho thing wc were looking
at through our tears. So it was with me
that Sunday morning. For there, away
out icvoiid. staiu lmr clear in the nsinc sun
were the mountains or shall I say the
crests of tho mountains? for their base was
hidden by tho roundness of tho earth,
white nnd still, standini tin in tho sky,
looking as If they belonged ta a world I had
never seen before, Hashing white against the
green ot summer lrom too eternal biiows.
I said in my heart. "Now I know what they
mean by mountains, and what lluskln
means when ho likens them to the shadow s
Then I came down at last, and noticed
that tho churches wcro open, early as it
was. Hut these were Protestant churches
not Catjiolic. " How is this?" I said to n
a man who spoke English, " Protestant
churches open before breakfast?" " That
Is when they art open," tho man replied,
service begins hero at six ociock. c
nood Idea, i thought: certainly tho peopli
will stay awako then, let the sermon be
never so stupid. Anil mi 1 went into
church close to the river, to bee this bravo
sight. hetlier the sermon was what ser.
nions should be, I cannot tell; certainly the
minister was awake, for Ids face lighted up
as he went on, as if ho felt every word ho
said. Hut this I know : that out of llttcen
hunched people, ns near as I could luibtc,
seven hundred were In as sweet a sleep its
ii mey were sun in incir own cuamuers
and so I gave up trying to account for this
pcrvcrscncss, and thought of tho man who
went to sleep under rani: mm It was
I was not satisfied, of course, with this
lock at the mountains on tho edge of the
world. I could not rest until 1 had seen
them to their most secret heait. Not that
I wanted to scalo Mont Hlauc, to shiver on
the brink of unfathomable creilees, or to
siaiid on neaiis tiiat only a lew men eve

woniicrs, ruuirr iwmjruut mem; lo leei
suru first, i run no nsit inai is not lair to
man with a family, when thero Is no higher
call than curiosity, bo that never so Intense:
and then, from my safe, sure foothold, to
tauo an tno niessings ineso imngs can give,
I love a noble daring. I remember Sir.-
Emerson said to mo once that n Polar ex

to give that year that sho was still in tho
lull iirimo ot life. What the men dare is
sign ot what tho nations aro lo wliicli they
belong; and a Hfo given now and then, 1'
for proof of clear crlt. is not lost. Oiil
did not mean to pawn mine that summer
among tho Alps. Thcro was ono thing I
wanted especially to do: I wanted to seo
Mont Hlanc face to faeo hi nil ids glorj-
and I did It. Starting from Lucerne, wo
go winding among tho valleys In tho most
curious fashion, catching glimpses of queer
llttlo towns and villages llint seem as If
they had been made on purpose to delight
Americans, tired nnd sick of tho everlasting

wo have to tako to tho hills on horseback'
or on foot, as it suits us. It suited mo for
many reasons to go on foot; tho most cen
tral reason being that I am perhaps tho
worst rider ever seen on horseback. But
tho walk over tho Teto Nolr is ono of tho
events of a lifetime so full of wonder nnd
delight that I only remember tho most of
it as a flno ethereal intoxication. Every
milo it was a now surprlso llttlo grecu val

sometimes with a figure of the dead Christ,

seven hours, we enmo to a sharp' turn by a
llttlo town, and then the mountains flint
had hidden nwny the, sight wo came to see,
stand back, and .there Is Moil I Hlanc.
It was n disappointment for n few min
ute, ns Niagara Is. . You liavo been ex
pecting that natuio will do something In
tho melodramatic line, and send ono peak
out Into tho sky ns they would on tho stage.
Nature knows belter, Sho Is no Court
House Competitor. Her work Is for
tho ages; nnd so she lays vast
foundations, nnd builds to her base, and
then just raise, tho great summit over all
peerless In Its way, when you como to think
of It as tho sun nnd lots you fret until you
isvo grace to see what sue means. I think
did seo It last as she intended wo suouiu.
or when wo trot to Clianionnv. and had
rested, wo went across tho valley, In among
the vines anil rocs, and thcro wo sat uown.
It was evening. The sun had set to u,
nnd tho nlirlit drew on : but un thcro ho was
shining still, transfiguring all the white with
his gold, lingering as if ho loved it and
ms loth to leave it. And then the gold
hanged to rosy splendors that seemed like
the Relit tlirouirh stained windows: and
then tho stars came out, ns the alpen glow,
as they call it, deepened, and starlight ami
mil hiit lav toirethor on t ho lonely desola
tion. They told me travellers w ould spend
weeks sometimes hi the valley and not sec
tins eight more than once, and it is reckon
ed the supremo glory. It Is to me still one
of flic wonders of mv life.
One mountain I did climb in that journey
it had been told I must see the sight from
the top at tho llliUi at Minri'o, or I should
be sorry for it always. It was a haul pull
of perhaps socii hours, on n very hot day;
hut, like the walk over the Teto Ncir, and
all the walks, indeed, I ever took among
these 11101111111111", the journey it'olf was
worth far more th in the trouble. It was
dark, when we L'ot to tho summit, for there
was no railroad then, as there U now, and
if thero had been I should have preferred
the tramp. We told the porter to call us
au hour belbie sunri' exactly, it must
hale been two hours after sunrise when we
woke up, and then we went storming down,
met the norter. ami shouted to mm, M ny
lid you not call us an hour belbru sunrise?"
Oh, are, ho said to Hie speaker, "lucre
was no sunrise. Ami to it wa. l e went
to the door, and il seemed as if the Hood
hail eoine. The rain was comini; down in
what vein might well call torrents, and wo
felt sad enough. Hut it wa a tempered
rial, alter all, as mo;t of our trials aro
when we are not wilful and wrong-headed,
what is worse, wrong hearted about
them. For in about a couple of hour
when we made up our mind to go down at
any fate and reaeli Lucerne, and had been
a few minutes on the toad, all at once the
rain stonned. The L'reat clouds broke
away into white musses, nnd Wtte some of
them swept down below our feet, and some
up into heaven ; and then wc wcro trans
figured wiiero wo stood, ino gume-oooK
told me, I think, that we could see between
the two rimsol the sky three liundreil nines
There, sham down below us. lookhu: al
most as If a rolling stone would reach thcni
lay towns and towers in the great green
valleys, churches and home., farm-steads
and glorious lakes, a panorama of wonder
and beauty for which, indeed, I have no
words. Tho Ithigi is green to the top a
pasture ground for the litllo cows and goats;
tho lilue-bells were lliicK nuout my loot,
fresh that morning from their bath, and
looking up shyly to the sun ns If they
would say, "Wo aro very glad you have
como out; it was getting rattier dreary.
Hut right across tho valley and tho lake, as
wo came down, lay the great masses of
white snow, set In their lramcs ot black
and brown rock, with tho shaggy woods
underneath, reaching down to tho meadows
tho towns, nnd the water, with monasteries
hidden nway nmong pleasant nooks, ns they
aro nnt to bo for of all tho men in the
world to find tho choicest spot to say their

themselves to bo most skiuiui. and i re
member saying to myself, as wo aro prone
to say of a beautiful land, "How they must
revel in this beauty, and how easy it must
bo to live holy lives with this near presence
of God!" When wo got down and took tho
steamboat, there was two monks on board

to thoso from the mountain, and wo
drank In the new beauty as wo had drank
in tho old. Hut now nnd then I glanced at
tho monks ; they set on tho deck munching
apples, with as much indiiroreneo ns if they
wero In their cells, looking nt us now nnd
then, nnd exchanging a word whieli I in
terpreted to mean, though I did not under
stand them. "How good thcso apples are!
and how 'strange It Is that anybody can pre
fer these sights to eating tlicni !"
Once again I went on three July days,
clean away up into tlio.mov, to what is
called tho Fur-ear Pass and tho glacier of

turning it to tho holiest account; and then
I said in my heart, "O, God! why cannot

General Wholesale Agents for
VERMONT AND NEW HAMPSHIRE,
WASHINGTON, WARREN, ESSEX, AND
- CLINTON COUNTIES, N. Y.
Why the Trade give to the Excelsior Diary the
preference over all others.
1st. It Is printed on nne rose tint paper.
2d. The same quality of paper fs used through
the entire line, giving Just as good paiierln a
cheap book as In a high priced one.
3d. It is the best llnlshed Diary In the
4th. Wo give you 235dlfferent stj les to select
Mb. Quite a number of the best selling pat
terns are made by no other house.
6th. Tho pocket-book styles are all arranged
to suit tho business man.
7th. Retailers want a Diary that Is neat, at
tractive and saleable.
Sth. You will find fewer of them among the
old stock of dealers, as they sell better than
any other Diary.
6th. The sale ot the Excelsior has Increased
more than soo per cent, in the last four years,
which fact shows that tho retailer appreciates
1 oth. Wo glvo attractive show cards and post
ers, and plenty of them.
llth. They cost no more, and no less, than
other Diaries all lists and discounts being
nth. The Hxcelslor Is the best retailing
Dlsry offered to tho trade.
Wo Intend to visit all dealers In Diaries early
In the season. If there aro any, however, that
wo do not reach, we shall bo pleased to send
them, on application, a line of samples to ex
amlno In comparison with other goods.
Early orders aro always filled complete, wlillo
late orders aro apt to nnd tho assortraeit
broken, and frequently tho best selling styles
used up. It ts a good plan to put lu orders cart
as pay-day comes no sooner (than with late or
ders. Wo can deliver goods any time after 1st
Send tn your orders for the Exeelslor.early to
