IN FOREIGN LANDS.
Correspondence of the Intelligencer.
The fame of the Swiss Alps is so great/
that the word. Switzerland -has become
almost a synonym for grand, majestic and
beautiful mountain scenery; and yet we
must remember that all of Switzerland
is not devoted to snow-capped mountains
and seas of ice, but that the Northern
portion of the country, comprising a
large share of its territorial extent, has
no high mountains, but is occupied by
broad plains, low hills and fertile valleys,
with thriving cities and villages and
densely populated rural districts. The
government is Republican in form, the
twenty-two cantons, with a population
of about three millions, being united
under a constitution. Although we
frequently hear of the "President of the
Swiss Republic," there is really no such
office or officer in existence; no chief
executive being elected by the people,
but the so called "President" being sim?
ply chosen by the legislative body to
preside over its deliberations. On a war
s footing, its army, in spite of the small
population, numbere over 200,000 men,
while Swiss soldiers have for centuries
been found in the armies of almost every
nation in Europe, they being among the
few faithful mercenaries known to history.
Zurich, where we left our readers in
our last letter, is one of the most flourish?
ing of the Swiss cities, its manufactures
of silk and cotton being especially im
por tan t., The lake at the footof which
it is located, is twenty-five miles long, ]
: ?_ and1 from the city many beautiful views
may be obtained, while from the* Uetli
berg, 1,565 feet above the lake and
about five miles from the cny, a more
extended prospect is gained.
Leaving Zurich, we pass .the little lake
Zag? only nine miles in length by three
in breadth, and shortly .after reach
Lucerne, a walled town, situated at the.
Western extremity ^>f lake Lucerne,
whose outlet) the Re ass river, a clear,
dark stream, 'Hows through the city.
Two of the four .bridges which span the
? river are very old ^nd quaint, the roof of I
. ?the one-nearest theTake being decorated
*; with more than 15? pictures, illustrating
? the lives of the patron saints of the place,
while the otlfer is ornamented in the
same manner with the "Dance of Death;."
representing the grim..messenger! .as
present in every employment and pleas?
ure of life. . The great attraction of the
town, however, is the "Lfono? Lucerne." j
This monument, which represents a lion
pierced by a spear and dying with its
paw upon the Bourbon shield, was
designed by Thorwaldsen, in memory of
nearly 800 officers and men of the Swiss
guard, who fell in defending the Tnileries
at Paris, in 1792^ and is cut into the
r. solid -rock of ithff mountain a short dis?
tance from the- lake. It is one of the
grandest and--most impressive works of
*; nie kind wh:ch ever came from the chisel
. of .the sculptor; and a* a memorial to
r .thefidelity and courage of the Swiss sol
..dierjn ^foreign lands, as well as for its
e r artistic merits, it. ia. justly pointed to
with pride by the citizens of the city.
Lake-Lucerne, or the "Lake of the
Four Forest Cantons," as it is sometimes
? "called; is'byfarthe most beautiful of all

of himself and sou marking the supposed
location of the fearful test. Returning
from. Flaelen, we land atVitznau, at the
-foot of the Rigi, and takc-the railway to
tho ei i mm it.
The Rigi ia not a single peak, but is an
irregular shaped mountain whose base is
;r wasljedTpnTtnree sideahy the waters of
J - ?tfc'e Lucerne/: Although1 a nrere- dwarf,
compared with some of the giants of the
.'Alps, (its height being only about 6,000
feet) its location is such as to give from
its summit what is probably the finest
view in Switzerland. .On ascending the
mountain, we found, although it was late
in June, a snow storm in progress at the
.top, with about four inches of snow
. 4? ready fallen, and the fog so thick as to
i-render i* impossible to see more than a
dozen yards in any direction. Id fact,
the Big? is celebrated almost as much for
its jogs as for the view obtained in good
? weather, and many are the disappointed
tourists who make the ascent and return
in despair. One of the unlucky ones,
years ago, left on the visitors' book the
following bit of inspiration:
" Whoever saw -the sun on Rigi set ? 1
. -Whowwaawitttse-?* ,j- >
The man that says he saw them both,
Upon my soul, he lies. ?
Three misty days and miserable nights,
Upon this mountain we passed,
Nor saw the sun, nor moon, nor stars;
(Bu* gstwty1 misery." ? v
We hoped, for better days, however, and.
after twenty-four hours of not patient,
but very- impatient waiting, the clouds
lifted, the mists rolled away and we were
rewarded bj^swicg one of the most mag?
nificent panoramas ever spread out to
the eye of man. On the North, just at
the foot of the mountain, lies lake Zug,
bordered by low hills, with a broad plain
beyond stretching away toward the
Black Forest in the distance. Eastward
the low peaks of the Rigi are seen, with
an occasional glimpse of lake Lowrez and
Lucerne, with a background of forest,
mountain and valley. Farther South
another part of the "Forest Sea" is visi?
ble, with the precipitous peaks of the
Bernese Alps, the peerless Jungfrau, the
mighty Fjnsteraarhoru, the Wetterhorn
and many of lesser note, holding high
their mantles of dazzling white, many
rn?ea away. The city of Lucerne and
another portion of the lake appears in
the West, and just South of tb t city
rises the storm crow De d head of Mount.
Pilatus* where the legend says the spirit
"of PonUus .PUafce. iiL despair at having
permitted the death of Christ took refuge.
The Western horizon is bounded by the
- dark blue of the Jura range, and wher?
ever the eye turns it is captivated by new
and appearantly greater . attractions*
Three hundred tailed of mountain, plain,
forest aad valley, with thirteen lakes,
are included within the range of vision.
A sunrise from the Rigi is regarded as
one of the most wonderful spectacles in
nature; and at half past three o'clock
the next morning, the doubtful melody
of an Alpine horn was heard through the
. halls of the hotel, a warning to the sleep
era that "now was the time and this the
place" to see an Alpine sunrise. In a
few moments the guests, a motley throng,
were assembled on the highest point of
the mountain, a few rods from the hotel.
The moon-has gone down, the stars have
faded and far away to the Northeast,
over the mountains of St. Gall come "the
streaks of the morning light." Now a
beam kisses the silvered top of the moun?
tain far to the South. Another and
another icy crest is lighted up, the golden
orb begins toappear above the horizon,
theTaya^escend to the val]eys belowand
on the memory of all is stamped, never
to be effaced, the beautiful picture of a
sunrise on the Bigi.
We descend the railway, which, by the
way, is a cog wheel affair, similar to the
Mount Washington line,'having in some
places a grade of one in four, and at
Vitznau again take the steamer for Alp
nach, where carriages are in waiting for
the journey over the Brunig Pass to
Brienz. The road over the Brun ig is a
marvel of engineering skill and many
times the rocks seem to effectually bar all
-further progress; but-by windicg about'
the mountains, along the edge of preci?
pices and beneath overhanging rocks,
amid wild and lovely scenery, with con?
stantly changing views as we ascend and
descend the pass. Lake Brienz is at last
reached and wo transfer once more to a
steamer, and cross the lake to Giessbacb,
where we stop, a few hours to see .the
waterfall of the same name. The little
stream which forms the Giessbacb Falls,
makes a total descent of nearly 1,200 feet
to the lake; but the "fall" is simply a
?eriea of cascades; varying in height-from
ten to one hundred feet. At night the
principal cascades are illuminated with
different colored Bengal lights, and the
"illumination-of the Giessbacb" is the
principal attraction of the mammoth
.hotel vlocated -there. Our opinion of
Swiss .waterfalls was not improving, bow
ever, and we took the next boat for the foot
of the lake, from which a ride of ten min?
utes by rail brought us to Jnterlaken.
As the name implies, Interlaken is
?between the lakes of Brienz and Thun;
and-as is is not only a delightful spot
itself, but also a convenient rendezvous
for excursions into the Bernese Oberlaud,
it is a very popular place for tourists.
About-twelve miles.distant and easily
reached by .carriage, is Grindelwald, near
which place are the Griudelwald gla?
ciers, flowing down from the Bernese
Alps. We visited the "upper glacier" I
and were much interested in it. The
vast, frozen flood, crowded down the
gorge in the mountain by tbe immense
weight of ice and snow above, crumbles
A od melts as it reaches tbe valley and {
drops i ta burden of rocks and other debris
into the terminal "moraine;" From the
base flows a small stream, almost as
white as milk, which; after winding
J about among the mountains # finally
I reaches lake Brienz. At one point a
grotto has been cot directly into tbe face
of the glacier, and one may enter for]
nearly J200 feet this- vast ice ionse of]
nature. The ice, which, in small frag?
ments appears as dear as crystal, here,
owing to its great thickness, is a most
lovely bitte and the Jight transmitted
through it throw*a ghastly pallor which
iB almost alarming over the.faces of visit?
ors. . On either side of the glacier, facing
outward, rises a mighty wall of rock,
thousands of feet iu height, reminding
one of the lofty cliffs of Yosemite; but
on tbe other side of the valley tbe moun?
tain slopes gently back, covered with
small farms and dotted with hundreds of
cottages. On our return. from Grindel?
wald, we made a detour of a few miles
to Lanterbrunnen, to see the far famed
Staubbach waterfall. Tbe opportunities
for a waterfall at this point are certainly
ample; the cliff being nearly 1,000 feet
in height; but tbe supply of moisture is
so extremely small that vre at once sug?
gested the ad visability of sending a man
to tbe top with a -bucket of water with
strict orders to throw it all over at once.
It was hardly satisfactory, but amid the
grand and majestic scenery by which we
.were surrounded, it was impossible to
criticise severely and with the feeling
that it bad been a day spent well, we re?
turned to Interlaken.
'A short' ride by rail to lake Thnn,
steamer down the lake and rail again for
19 miles brought us at an early hour the
'?next day to Berne, tbe capital of the
? Swiss confederacy. It-has a population
k<ff WKMrt '45?ti0, bot possesses little of
interest to tbe tourist. The bear; the
heraldic emblem H)f-the-city; is -seep
everywhere, carved in wood, cast in iron
and even stamped on the pats of butter
at the hotels. The tower clock, which
rivals in the ingenuity of its figures the
Strasburg clock, has bears* ior puppets,
and a small den of live bears is kept at
"the public expense. Fountains are nu
merous throughout the city, (as in fact
in nearly all the Swiss cities,) and many
of the designs are both quaint and cu
?' nous ;>1i^e;\ttV..,^indHj&es8er," being
surmounted by a figure in the act of de?
vouring.a kicking, struggling baby, and
havingin its;-pockets an abundant Bup
gly for future lunches of'the same sort,
erne i? also noted for its manufactures
of music boxes, cuckoo clocks, etc., and
has in its cathedral one of the finest
organs in tbe world. .
Twenty miles South of Berne is Fri
bourg, with another celebrated organ,
and forty miles farther on we reach.Lau
sanne, where, at the Hotel Gibbon, in
the garden of which the great historian
wrote his Decline and Fall of tbe Eo
man Empire, we stop to re arrange the I
outline of our Italian tour.
Tbavsler. I
Popping the Question.
Popping the question is a strictly
masculine'institution, though it involves
the presence of a woman. If a man
popped all alone and no woman to catch
on to his pop he'd be a blamed fool for
bis trouble. ;
Men have been known to pop at all
times and in a variety, of places, bat
those wbo have been there say that fa
gobd solid pop over a garden gate lays
over any other sort of a pop, and is the'
poppiest kind of a pop.
. All women like to bear a man pop bis
poppiest, and have been known to get
mad if the pop was a weak, sickly kind
of a pop without style, self-respect or
force of character.
? Men get off the best kind of a pop
when they have both of their girl's hands
in their own or have one of their arrnsj
around her waist. This action gives tone
and force io'the.'pop?ibelps toehold the
fellow up while making it.
Some /'el lows take naturally to popping,
and. are going off all tbe time. To others
it is a painful and laborous proceeding,
only to be attempted once in a lifetime
and then only as small a pop as they can
possible get away with.
When a fellow's pop is acceptable to a
girl, it instantly involves a kiss. When
it is not acceptable, kissing is not involv?
ed.
When a fellow pops, he always pops at
his beat girl. No fellow ever pops at bis
second or third best girl. There is no
exception to this rule.
Popping is a very ancient and honora?
ble institution, and tbe girls like it. A
girl wbo has never heard a pop never
confesses as much. She invents a pop,
so that tbe other girls can not get the
dead wood on her. We believe in pop?
ping, and shall probably experiment in
that direction "some day.? Winnipeg' Sift-^
ings.
? On Sunday afternoon, August 8'
while riding in his buggy, Mr. J. W.
Kimball, of Johnaonville, Williamsburg
County, was seized with an epileptic at?
tack. He was in tbe buggy alone, and
fell across the seat so that his bead ex
tended beyond the arm of the seat and
came in contact with tbe wheel of the I
buggy. Mr. Kiimhall was unable to help
himself. His horse took fright and ran
away. Before help could reach him Mr.
Eimball's skull was fractured, and he
died from the effects of his injuries.
? The authorities of many of the
small town3 in thy West are forbiding
Iwomen to wear Mother Hubbard cos?
tumes in public, alleging that they are j
indecent.
? In Montgomery County. Ga., on
Friday night David Connor fired upon
from ambush and killed Alice Higga, 16
years old, the daughter of a farmer, as
she was returning from church in a
wagon with her family. Tbe girl had
refused to marry Connor.
'?A man in Louisville, Ky., adopted
a novel way recently -;to get rid of his
wife, with whom he quarreled, and who
declined a reconciliation. He placed a
cocked revolver in bis wife's trunk, to
the trigger of which was attached a
string, so arranged that upon tbe lid of
the trunk being raised the weapon would
be discharged point blank at the person
lifting it. Fortunately the string becs.me
partly entangled in tbe lock, and the
wife was only able to lift the lid high
enough to slip in a pair of scissors and
cut the cord. By doing this Bbe saved
her life.
? It is said that no watch will keep
the same time with two people. This is
owing to the temperature of the wearer,
and it is claimed that even the mere
physical difference in gait and move?
ment between different people will affect
the time keeping of a watch, which is
probably also affected iu some degree by
the magnetism of the wearer.
? Col. Geo. Tillman, of South Caro?
lina, Congressman from the Edgefield
district, is said to be a very shrewd judge
of political events. He very strongly
believes in Cleveland's election. He says
the Prohibitionists who have nominated
ex-Gov. St. John for President are in
earnest and will slab off a heavy slice
from the Republican vote. The inde?
pendent Republicans will heartily sup?
port Cleveland and take another large
slice from that party. Cleveland's elec?
tion Col. Tillman regards as a certainty.

Tan Winkle King Cotton Press
Has long been before the public, and is too well
l:rJwn to need any further description. Its chief
points of merits are: It takes very little room, is
easily handled, and takes so little power; can be
used on all kinds of powers?horse, water or steam.
Ginning and packing can all go on at the same
time, without interfering with the Gin. A two
inch belt will pack a 500 lb. bale of cotton. It
saves its cost tho first season in labor.
Read the following Testimonial:
Andebsox, S. C?Mr. John E. Peoples?Sir: The
Steam. Power Van Winkle Cotton Press bought
from you last Fall has given entire satisfaction. I
packed bales of cotton weighing 6G0 to 725 lbs. in
five minutes with all ease, using a 4-inch belt and
25 lbs. steam. There did not seem any more strain
on the Press than with a 450 lb. bale. For dura?
bility, strength, lightness of power, small quantity
of steam required, economy of space, I deem it the
King of all Cotton Presses ; especially so as the low
price at which it can be bought for puts it within
reach of every man running a, steam Gin. In fuct
I would not be without it for twice its cost. I
would advise all my friends to buy one of Van Winkle's Steam Power Cotton Presses, as
you will save its cost in labor in one year. M. A. COBB.

THE HALL SELF-FEEDING COTTON GIN.
Manufactured at Sing Sing, N. Y., has given satisfaction wherever used. The Saws are
made of the best imported steel. The saw shaft is the largest made. An examination
of other. Gins.will convince you it is the most substantially built Gin in use. It never
breaks the roll, and therefore does away with the expense of the revolving head, as the
secret of making the Gin to prevent its breaking the roll is in the proper shape of the
roll-box. Every one should examine the improvements in the Hall Gin made t his year,

WOMAN AND THE BAB*.
What a puzzle the little child is in the domestic economy.
How the mother gives ofher own life and strength to support the life
of her blessed, little youngster!
How the child kicks, and laughs, and crows!
How the child grows, and is heavier and heavier every diry.
And yet she lifts him, and tosses him. and plays with him, and takes
care of him by day and by night.
Is it any wonder the mother breaks down? I Ter back aches. Her
stomach fails het. Her liver is bad. Her blood is thin, and she says she
feels poorly. Yes, yes, poorly?very poorly. Give mother a bottle of

THE LITTLE GEORGIA BAR
Having secured the SOLE RIGHT to sell the
Celebrated ?tone Mountain Corn Whiskey,
DEFIES Competition by saying that it is by far the PUREST and BEST Corn Whis?
key made in the world. Physicians prescribe it, wherever known, as the best.
No use in going to Drug Stores or other Bars to buy Pure Corn Whiskey for Medicinal
purposes, or any other purpose, for there is not a single Drug Store or Bar in the Town
that keeps Stone Mountain Whiskey. Consequently, there is none so good as the
Genuine Stone Mountain Corn Whiskey. Remember, that the only
place you can get Stone Mountain Corn Whiskey is at the LITTLE GEORGIA BAR.

A FEW WORDS FROM
OAPT. R. W. BONNER,
A WELL-KNOWN
CITIZEN OP MACON, GA.
In August, 1RR1, nearly three years ago, my son,
who was at that time living at Clinton, Ga., camo
over to see rue with the sad intelligence that his
wife was in the last stages of consumption and
that her physician had pronounced her case hope?
less. I went immediately over, and I felt that
nothing could he done. She was coughing and d
spitting Incessantly, and at times would discharge \
from her lungs a large quautity of pus or matter ?
?could not sleep or retain anything on her stom?
ach, and was, in fact, in the last stages of the dis?
ease. This was about the time you began to ad?
vertise Grower's Lung Restorer, and as my son
expressed a desire to give it to his wife, two or
three bottles were procured and with scarcely a
vestige of hope we commenced giving it to her' in
small doses, gradually increasing the quantity un?
til the prescribed dos? was reached. She began to
improve after a few doses and continued to do so
daily, until she was finally restored to life and
health, and is to-day perhaps in better health than
ever before. She is subject to colds, but a few
swallows of Brewer's Lung Restorer (which she is
never without) relieves her immediately. I con?
sider her restoration to perfect !-."alth a miracle,
for which she is indebt-d to brewer's Lung Re?
storer. My son is almost a monomaniac on the
subject of Brewer's Lung Restorer and never lets
an opportunity pass where ho thinks such a medi?
cine would be required, that he does not speak of
it in most glowing terms. Not lone since a North?
ern gentleman on his way to Florida heard of this
cure and was induced by my son t-. give it to hfa
invalid wile, and she was cured as if by magic"'
Brewer's Lung Restorer contains no opiates

POISON
In the blood is apt to show itself in the-r
Spring, and nature should by all meaus be
assisted in throwing it off. Swift's Specific
doe3 this effectively. It is a purely vegeta?
ble, non-poisonous remedy, which helps
nature to force all the poison or taint out
through the pores of the skin.
Mr. Robert A. Easley, of Dickson, Tenn.,
writes, under date March 10, 1884: "I had
chills and fever, followed by rheumatism,
for three years, so that I was not able to at?
tend to my business; had tried almost every
kind of medicine, and found no relief. A
friend recommended Swift's Specific. I
tried one bottle and my health began to
improve. I continued until I bad taken
six bottles, and it has set me on my feet, as
sound and well as ever. I recommend it .
to all similarly afflicted." '
Letters from twenty-three of the leading
retail druggists of Atlanta say, under date
of March 24, 18S4: "Wesell more of Swift's
Specific than any other one remedy, and
three to ten times as much as any other
blood medicine. We sell it to all classes,
and many of the besr. lamilies use it as a
general health tonic."
I am sure that Swift's Specific saved my
life. I was terribly poisoned wi ;h malari%
and was given up to die. Swill's Specific
relieved me promptly and entirely. I think
it is the greatest remedy of the s.ge.
C. G. Spencer,
Sup't Gas Works, Rome. Ga.
I have known and used Swift's Specific
for more than twenty years, and have seen
more wonderful results from its use than
from any remedy in or out of the Pharma
copteia. It is a certain and safe antidote to
all sorts of Blood Poison.
