Sai.tvii.i.e, Va , Angost 22. Whon
Mr. Fred Nelson's party wore leaving
Abingdon for the trip to Whitotop
mthutain, of which I gavo an account
in former letters, a Irlenu said to Dr,
Jonee, "it is a trip ono wishes to make
onca. but never a second time." lie
alluded, of course, to the distance, the
rough roada, the primitive acoommo'
' dattons to ho had there, and the fa'
tigne indiapeiibahle from such a four-
neyj but tneae very objections made
the charm of the Whitotop trip to me.
Thackery has said somewhere, "we
travel no more we only arrive at
dices." I like to travel, am never in
letter heart than whon iu the soddln
or afoot on the bight, Bleeping in the
Open air and breathing the balam
Uaoti atmoHphcre ot the mountains. I
would irittku a good tramp. Jt did uot
need peril iiiwi on therefore, hut only
opportunity lur mu to go to wutto
top again; and the opportunity wai
si veil. I fcund among the riipb's ut
that charming little resort, the Wah
liiKton Nnriiig.?, a gentleman from
Katchea, Mies., llaj. JO, K. Thorn)
ton, who Will very anxious to
go to Whitotop, and J at once agreed.
On the former trip, my chum was
Dr. Jones, a major iu the Confederate
service, who went in at the ii ret roll
of the drum and laid down Mb arms
at Appomatox. Thompson, my com
panion on thin jaunt, was a eoldier
umler Bnmaide: n ac from the ranks
to he a major of cavalry, "akodiulloJ"
with the rent at lUill Hun, came luck
and stuck it out like a man, then
made it nil up by mairlng a
Southern girl, and eettling in Miaeia
eippi. He weighs nearly 100, la short
of stature, fat, might liava beon in
Ciear's bodyguard, "sletps well o'
nights," did not Miore, aw every
thing and was a jully good fellow to
Lave along on such a trip. We left
the hotol at 12 o'clock, amid the wav
ing of hats and hnndkcichiofs, well
mounted and ready for anything. An
hour's ride brought us to the Holatou
river, where it Hows through tbe tine
nhorthorn farm of Mr. James By am.
It waa swollen by the heavy rains of
tbe few daya previous, and inatead of
the limpid stream rippling over its
rocky bed, wo found a swift and turbid
current of unknown depth, I confess
I hesitated to enter a (strange frd at
a time of high wator, for 1 make no
boast of courage; but Whitotop was
beyond, and 1 was bound to go to
IVtiitetnp, bo in I plunged. Thomp
son followed. It was deep, but we
made the oppoaits shore iu safety and
imahod on. When we readied the
houth Fork, a much swifter stream,
we fortunately met a mountaineer,
who, for an extra quarter,
cti'ded us safely acron. A few hours
brought us into the deep jungle that
eklits the base of the Iron Mountain,
And the road btgan to wind tediously
upward. The views obtained by this
route nre fur better than by tbe Abing
don route. Each sharp curve of our
winding road disclosed a uiagnitlcent
iirdseye view of the Holslon valley,
with its livers and woods and farms
and rillun.es, sweeping awav up to the
Clinch Mountains on the North. 1'he
cenerv i tiiuulv ravishing in its
beauty. We ianaed under beetling
c'itli of wrinkled and rugged rocks
that bad defied a Ihouaand Etorms;
and b dizzy piocipices from whoEe
baiis far below rose tbe wild music of
unseen waters thundering down the
gorge. We passed many a romantic
dell and shady glen and many a limpid
rivulet that rippled across our way,
sparkling lor a moment in tbe sun
light, then gliding ont of s'ght under
the dense laurel, 'lbe day was per
fett, and the impressions of the hour
naver to be forgotten. Thompson
vowed wemuetbeclimbingold Wtiite
top himself an allution coon dis
relied, for we went down. down.
; donn, into as wild and dark a wilder-
ner-s ts one cares to thread, 1 do not
remember tver , to have seen such
piceaai wesaw there an irapenetra
b'.e jungle of Imirol and pints, when
the roar of the mountain torrents was
deenlng. Tins was the hunting
ground of Wilbon Water?, a famous
character in tbia region, ot whom the
natives cevrr lire ol talking,
Ue re Le had many a des-
p?rto encounter with wolves
and beara and wLd animals, tbe nar

welcome tr.at cabin in the valley, how
cheerful the b,g fire, how toothsome
the mountain front, cam bread and
hot coffee we bad for snpper. Thomp
son at enormously; so did I. By the
way, I may as well tay now that in the
nut tweotyfour hours we ate
100 tront between ns. beside!
bringing home 100 as a treat to tbe la
dies. That fish story is reliab.e. A
few gjodi coffee, sugar, especially
eoda, calico, etc. had been brought
to "the fcttleme nt" that day and th
mountaineers flocked In to bny. I
beard one stout fellow ask for a "par
of gallusse," bnt they were cot in tlie
ttock. f-'tnrdy fellows they arc, with
a native courtesy of manner and sim
plicity that are delightful. 'flat slop
ping pltc9 waa about twenty miles
from our s'arling point, and tbo topof
Whltetop wri seven miles away. . We
made thin seven mi.'ea next morning
by 10 o'clock without feiingmu.h, f:r
it was a s'eady climb, and the
roid lay through a deep forest un
til we reached tbe top of tbe
mountain. We found quite a n mo
tif r of people already thero. Among
them were several melancholy looking
individuals, who bad lied from the
ne'ghborirg village to escape hay fever.
One of them sat on a reck and with
our glasses watched bis hands plowing
in bis field twelve miles away. I mast
correct one statement I made about
Wbiteton. It has long been consid
ered tbe nigbest mountain in Virginia,
and it is vety k'gb. Pile three Mont-
eagie mountains one on top oi ine
other and yon begin to get up to the
lofty level of Whltetop. But it is not
tbe highest. A recent official survey
has deprived it of this distinction and
placed the crown on tbe brow of a
neighbor. Balsam, now named Rogers
monntain, is 14') feet higher than
White top. But as yet the summit of
Rogers is Inaccessible except by a
bridlepath. Some future day I shall
climb that azure cone. The summit of
Whitetop is donuded of timber over
an area of perhaps 100 acrep, which Is
covered with a thick sward of wild
grass, very much resembling blue'
grans. The "old fluid," as it is
called, affords admirable opportunity
lor observation, it is supposed
to bn a natural clearing, for the memo
ry of man runneUi not back to the
time when a for4t was there. The
rtst of tbo summit Is covered with a
denao jungle of lashorcs. A little
down the side of the mountain there
are opon woods that present very
mnch the appearance of a park. Nu
merous springs gush out near tbe sum
mit, affording abundant water facili
ties. 1 noticed that the stroam issuing
near our cabin, at whose crystal apout
we made our toilet, lhwed with twice
tbe volume of water in the morning
tbat it had in the evening, and all
these streams are as cold as ice water.
Tbe land from base to summit is as
rich as Mississippi bottom land. There
is a delightful freedom fiom insects
Bpiders, mosquito j, flies, et id omne
genus, of peetiferous vermin that
plague us mortals cannot live in these
serene tights. What a delicious nap
I bad, stretched prone on the soft
grass on the mountain's blow I lehall
not attempt to describe the scenery,
for only thoso who have gn.id upon
it and felt tbe exhilarating effect
of that lofty atmosphere ran real
ise it. But we beheld one spec
tacle so vast, resplendent and unex
pected that I mutt refer to it. As we
went out of onr cabin to breakfast ono
morning, 1 pausod to look at the val
ley below. It lay in tranquil beauty,
a world of wooded hills and highlands
and inferior mountains, dappled over
with clearints, from whose cabins the
blue smoke waa curling upward,, aud
walled in by loftier mountains that
upheld a sky of cloudless azure. We
wero at breakfast tbo usual time, but
when we came out ,lo I what a change.
The same crystal doruo of eky waa
above us, but the valley nad disap
peared : farms, liltK hixhinnds, moun
tain?, were all submerged in one
bouudloas ocean of vapor. Whitetop
was an island in this wondrous ocean,
and far away in North Carolina
ano.hor lofty mountain lifted its blue
form above the billows, but ai far as
tho eye could sweep, all besides waa
an unbounded deluxe of cloud. A
short distance down the tide of the
mountain, 1 saw thn shore linn of this
mystic sea so deUuite that 1 might
have p'unged my arm into its ethennl
waves while my body was in limpid
sunlight. As the wind moved over
the etuface of this wide ocean of mist,
the effect was indescribably grand.
ltlllows leagues in length aud dazzling
in whttene-s, rolled noiselessly across
that aerial sett nntil tliev wore lout in
radiant distances. No snip sailed that
mysterious main that nad so suddenly
engulfed us, and the senso of lonelt
nees became almost painful as I
thought of being afloat above a world
that bad gone down underthat mighty
deluge. As imagination yielded to
this llluaion, it was a positivo relief to
reflect that old Whitetop was anchor
ed to the core of the world, and would
stand firm n nid encircling seas. Then
1 thought of tho sea of glius John saw
in the vision of heaven and the eter
nal splendors of the world to com.
""An nndevont aatronomer Is road."
Htrange Indeed, also, moat he the mind
that could gar.e on eucb a scene of
glory as enchanted us that morning
and not bo moved to adoring reverence.
How Piitilmie are the works of (iod?
How onnoblingand blessed is the belief
that the Ala'ighty who reared these
stupendous mountains and stretched
above them this canopy of eky and
adorned them with these vernal for
ests, and ill led these vast cathedrals
of natuie with the everlasting muaie
of the waterfalls that the being of in
finite power, wiedom and beauty is
1 ur Father In Heaven."
I have scribbled these hasty notes
for the pleasure of those who have
not enjoyel tho privilege of aojourn
ing above the clouds. Old Whitetop
waa visible from my window when 1
was a student at Emory and Henry
College, and these vh Its to its lofty
hights wero the fulfilment of the
dream of the long ago. On the slight
est opportnnlty I am ready to go again,
and so is Thompson, who protested
that be was not stiff from the ride
homeward, though I noticed be fat

Thread rrora Milk Weed.
Dry Good Chroniclt, August 21st;
American inquiaitiveuess and ingenui
ty united have produced thread made
from the blossom of the common milk
weed, which has the consistency and
tenacity of imnorted flax or linen
thread, and is produced at a much
less cost. The liber Is long, easily

spinning unon an ordiuarv flax enln-

ot silk, rendering it valuable for saw

WEST POINT, MISS.
AMOTEBESr TO SECURE DIRECT
Communication With Memphis by
nay or ine nansaa uiij anu
To the Editors of tht Appeal i .
West Point. Mws., August 24. The
deep iatereae which the Appeal has
always nianifestid in the upbuilding
cf Mistiisippl and her njalerial proj
peiity emboldens me to call attention
through the columns of tbe Atj-ial to
a railroad enterprise thatr the people
of the city of West Point and Cibv
county have been discussing, which
appears at once feasible and practica
ble. The Kansas City, Memphis and
Birmingham road will cross the Bat
tahachie river about forty miles north
east of West Point and near the Ala
bama line. This little river is one Of
the most beautiful streams in the
bou'hwest, and runs through a moat
fertile land, occupied by a most pros
perous people. Buttahachie river
empties Into the Tomb'gble seven
miles north of east of Wett Point.
Between West Point and the Tombig
bee liver it is one broad prairie, slightly
undulating, and productive leyond a 1
description. From West Point to the
line of the Kansas City, Memphis and
Birmingham ro. d, where it will cress
Buttahachie, Is one continuous valley,
and straight almost as an arrow. As
is known tomost.of your readers, West
Point is at the crossing of the Mobile
aod Ohio road and the Canton, Aber
deen and Nashville arm of the Illinois
Central rrilrotd, and at the center of
the Kiet Mississippi prairie. Weft
Point now handles 20,C00 bale3 of cot
ton, and has a general trade in propor
tion. The population is 3C00, and is
rapidly increasing. - If we can build
the pioposcd arm to the Kansas City,
Memphis and Birmingham road, it
will bo equiva'entto direct connection
with Memphis. Should It be thought
beat to use the charter of tbe Alabama
and Mississippi Rai'road Company for
the arm rather than that of the Kansas
City, Memphis and Birmingham char
ter, it can be done. This charter will
be found in the Acts of Missis
sippi for 1882, on pages 8G3 to
874, and is really far more lib
eral than tbe 'charters subsequently
granted. Of the incorporators named
in the charter for tbe Alabama and
Mississippi Railroad Company are
Napoleon Hill and Wm. M. Forrest, of
Memphis. West Point and Clay
county will subscribe liberally to the
building of this road. What will the
K. C, M. & B. people do? and what
encouragement will Memphis give to
This section has long desired direct
railroad connection with Memphis,
and West Point stands ready to do
her part to secure such a connection.
