RECITAL OF THE HORRIBLE EVENT
OF SEPTEMBER, 1870.
A Party of Eleven Xost, Including Three
Americans Overtaken by a Blinding
Snow Storm The Message Penciled by a
It was about 4 o'clock in the afternoon that
we entered the village of Chamouni in 1870,
and halted at our hoteL As we did we no
ticed that something unusual had occurred.
Groups of men and women were standing
around in the little square in front of the vil
lage church, all earnestly discussing some ap
parently important matter. Many of the
women were weeping, and there was a shade
of sadness on all tho faces that attracted our
notice. At first we a'rtributed it to tho war
that was raging only a few leagues away.
We were not long in learning the truth,
however, for wo had hardly d&scendod from
the diligence before the terrible announce
ment was made that eleven men had been lost
on lit. Blanc.
WHY THESE "WAS WESPrHO.
An intelligent English gentleman, who
bad been at Chamouni some time and was
conversant with the facts, told us the sad
story. He said that on tho previous Monday
morning this wat "Wednesday, Sept. 7
three travelers, two of whom were Ameri
cans, had started with three guides and fiv
porters for the top of tho mountain. Their
names were John C. Randall, of Quincy,
Mass. ; Dr. James B. Beane, of Baltimore,
Md., and G. M. Corkeadale, a Scotch clergy
man. The three guides were the best and most
reliable in the village, namely: John Balmat,
Joseph Bretton and August Cottet all well
known and esteemed by the professional
mountain climbers of that time. The party
had reached the Grand Mnlets and spent the
night of Monday there, sotting the usual
signal to inform tho dwellers below of their
safe arrival. On Tuesday morning they
completed tho ascout and reached the sum
mit, spending tho usual time there. On the
afternoon of that day thoy were seon slowly
descending the upper part of tho mountain.
They looked like fiies crawling over a wliito
check All at once, he said, there seemed to
be a veil thrown over them, and thoy van
ished from his sight, never to be aeon again.
At first not much anxiety was felt in the
valley, as slight snow storms aro not uncom
mon at that season. But when night came
on, and there were no signals set at the
Grand Mulcts, or any lights to be seen about
the little hut where they should have spent
tho second night, fears began to take shapo
that some terrible catastrophe had taken
As soon as tho peoplo had partially recov
ered from tho shock occasioned by a realiza
tion of what had occurred, the mairo of tho
village, who was also tho chief guide, called
for volunteers to go in search of tho missing
men. How forlorn a hope it was may bo in
ferred from tho fact he would accept no
married man, neither any who were over
thirty years of ago. It was about 5 o'clock
when these volunteers, thirty in number,
with packs of clothing and provisions on
their backs, cotls of ropes and axes over their
shoulders, and alpenstocks in their hands,
gathered in front of tho maire1s office to got
their final instructions.
That night there came on, about S o'clock,
a tempest of wind and rain, accompanied by
thunder and lightning, Euoh as I have rarely
listened to or witnessed, except m the Swiss
Alps. The next morning, looking from our
hotel windows, wo saw that snow had fallen
upon the mountain sides far down toward
the valley, and wo instinctirely felt that tho
efforts of tho brave volunteers must have
been fruitless, even if they themselves had
not fallen a sacrifice to the fury of tho ele
ments. But about 10 o'clock that forenoon they
woro seen emerging from tho woods, and
were soon greeting their friends, yet with
saddened faces. Thoy reported that thoy had
reached a considerable height when tho
storm suddenly overtook them a storm not
of wind and rain, as wo had it, but a fierce
tempest of wintry sloet and snow. They had
spent tho night under tho at shelter they
oould find and small choice it was and
early noxt morning had proceeded on their
upward journey. It was not far, however,
that they could go, for tho sJiow had fallen in
such quantities that not only eio all land
marks and paths obliterated, but it was im
possible to make any progress without mo
mentary danger of being hurled into soma
abyss which could not bo avoided, because
hidden under a treacherous covering of snow.
Thoy knew, also, too well, that no human be
ing could havo survived such a night and
such a Tempest at a point above that which
they had reached.
THE TERHtDLB SEQUEL.
And now, dear reader, you know why
there was weeping and wailing that afternoon
of Sept. 7, anions: the womon and cliildren,
aye, and men, too, of Chamouni. Eight of
their host and bravest citizens had been
wiped out of existence as suddenly as if tho
earth had opened and swallowed them tip.
Somo of thorn loft families and some aged
parents dependent upon them for support.
It was several weeks afterward that I
learned the sequel to this torriblo affair. A
week or more olajwed before it was deemed
practicable to attempt another search for the
missing men, mid then only with the bare ex
pectation of finding and bringing down then
lifeless bodies. There was no other hopo
Fifty of tho most experienced mountaineers
of the village were detailed for this purpose;
and after a long and tedious search they came
upon tho stiffened corpses of several of tho
party, among which were thosoof Dr. Beano
and Mr. Corkeadale. Th3y were m a sitting
posture, as though thoy had sat down to rest,
and so had perished. In tho cold hands of Dr.
Beano was found a note book bearing several
dates, the last of which was that terrible
night of Sept. 7. The record stated that they
had boon two days iu the midst of a terrible
snow storm; that they hud had trouble with
their guides and the party had becomo separ
ated. They were conscious that they were
lost, for the record closed as follows: ""We
have dug a grotto in the snow at a height of
15,CXW feet. I havo uo hope of des&jeding,
my feet are frozen, and I am exhausted. 1
havo only strength to write them words. I
die believing in J&sus Christ, with tho sweet
thought of my family, my friendships, and
alL 1 hope wo shall meet in heaven." Dr.
Beaue whs a highly esteemed young-physician
of Baltimore, and had in his possession letters
from prominent officials connected with tho
Smithsonian institution. The object of his
visit to Chamouni and his f atal ascent of tho
mountain was mainly for scientific investiga
tion. Mr. Randail, who periihe-d at the same
time, but whooo body was not recovered, 1 be
lieve, until somo days after, was a well known
resident of Quincy, and I think was treas
urer of a savings bsnlz. Boston Transcrint.

The Art That Is No Always Uadei jood.
Tho Charnu oTVartety.
Some people norer understand doles far
niente. There-are souls ao restless that, when
their longed for holiday at length arrives,
they fly off, in utter disregard of all the tire
some trials of traveling, to climb mountains
in Switzerland, or to explore miles of picture
galleries in Italy. Others, rashly giving
themselves to the keeping of hospitable ac
quaintances, find themselTes, jaded and worn
out, invclved in all the doings of friends,
fresh enough to crave exercise and excite
ment, which torture their exhausted guest.
How can people who never put pen to paper
save to write some hurried note realize th
brain weariness of those to whom pens are
bread winners? It is to them a thing incred
ible that long eventless days, utterly en
grossed in lounging on turf and gazing on
trees, can havo charms for anv one. Shoot
ing, fishing, cricket are sweet enough, but
that utter unoocupation can be sweeter they
will nover believe. Yet it is complete quies
cence which makes tho happiness of tired hu
manity. Not to read, not to write, not to
think; merely to eat, sleep and loungo as
much as possible, is the no plus ultra of ex
No one who has not been utterly wearied
can realize tho delicious feeling of repose
when body and mind grow gradually rested,
until slowly, slowly, a wish to do something
once again springs up. Tho energetic beings
who devote themselves to travol's toils miss
this delight; they may, perhaps, return in
vigorated if they have not worn themselves
to thread papers by violent climbings, for
which a stroll down Piccadilly or St. James1
street has been their only training; but the
reposo won by those who understand the dolco
far niente is an unknown quantity. To trav
elers a keen remembrance of lakes and moun
tains makes the commonness of London
streets intolerable, the atmosphere seems odi
ous and tho whole thing horrible. The disci
ples of dolce far niente, on the other hand,
have garnered in such store of reposeful mem
ories that they have but to close their eyes to
find themselves again dreaming where the
waves break close to their feet, where heather
scents tho air, or in some sheltered nook
where stately trees shut out all sight of ev
erytliing, save a patchwork dome of blue sky
softened by white fleecy clouds. Even to
thoie whose business is but pleasure, this do
ing nothing is most sweet only for a time
of course, and probably a very short timo;
but for that brief period the joy of having no
dinner to bo late for and nowhere to "go on"
to is very great.
In Corney Grain's magnificent sketch of
tho different periods of tho London season he
makes every one wind up somewhat despair
ingly with thoughts of tho "bills to como in
by and by;" but butterflies do not, as a rulo,
allow themselves to bo much disturbed by
bugbears of this description. Butterfly busi
ness seems an absurd anomaly to the beo3,
but to tho butterflies themselves it is most
real; and an escape to regions where there la
no necessity to bo agreeable, no one to b
amused, or, more arduous task, to be amused
by, is peace indeed. Such peace will proba
bly pall with great rapidity, but it is real
enough while it lasts. Tho butterfly seekera
after dolco far niente number many moro fe
males among their tribe than do tho bees,
although it is hard, well nigh impossible, to
persuado people thai any London lady can
exist without somo dissipation. Probably
sho could not for any length of time, but for
tho nonce she revols in an eventless existence,
which would bo utterly intolerablo to any
country cousin. If the town rat visits tho
country rat her life will be probably wearied
out and vexed by endless tennis parties, to
which tho country rat will drag her, deem
ing them lho ono thing that makes rural life
endurable. No arguments will convinco her
that on tho weary Londoner they exercise
tho contrary effect. She cannot be rcado to
see tho boredom caused by strange dullards,
w hose efforts to amuso a London beauty, dif
ficult to interest at any timo, goad hor, in
desperate weariness, to call for the carriage
and insist on being taken homo.
No ono ever seems to take that most excel
lent maxim, ' Variety is charming," to heart
Every ono tries to give his or her friends
what they are used to, when it is just for
what they are not used to that they aro pin
ing. It always seems strangely difficult for
any one to understand tastes diverse from his
own; and the porson who likes to be taken
Bomowhero every day, to have peoplo to din
ner every night, and to be perpetually enter
tained, cannot bo expected to sympathize with
tho man whoso ideal household is one where
they let you do nothing, and where "there ara
nover any ruins to see after luncheon." In
ono such elysium for exhausted humanity th
hostess is wont to remark, when apologetic
guests appear desperately late for a 9:30
breakfast, "What does it matter? thero is
nothing to do." She fully comprehends tho
dolco far niente, and makes her house a heaven
to all who, saying with Calvcrley,
Under tho trees, w ho but agrees,
That there is music in woods suoh as these?

A recaliar Industry.
The raising of kids for their skins Is a prin
cipal industry among the French mountain
eers, and it supplies no small part of their
subsistence. Softness, delicacy of texture
and freedom from blemish aro principal fac
tors in the value of kid skins, and to secure
these great pains aro taken. Diet is the prin
cipal thing and mother's milk is what keeps
the kid in perfect condition for thelites of the
glover. As soon as the young animal bejrins
to eat grass the value of its skin declines, for
with a gross diet its skin immediately begins
to grow coarser and harder in texture, and
its chief merit vanishes. It is, therefore, kept
closely penned, not only to prevent it from
eating grass, but aho to secura its skin from
accidental injury from scratches, bruises,
etc., which aro fatal to perfection. When
tho kidr havo reached a certain age, at which
the skins ara in tho bost condition for the
uso of tho glover, they aro killed, and the
tkms are sold to traveling hawkers, through
whom they reach the great centers of the
tanning industry at Anxonnay, Milbau, Paris
The superior quality of these kid skins, due
to cliinaac causes, it is that has given France
the supremacy in the manufacture of the
finest grades of real !nd gloves a supremacy
that will doubtle&s be long maintained, maa
much as foreign manufacturers must in gen
eral ret content with second rate skins, un
less they maintain acents on the ground, a
policy that some EnglLh and American
houses have found Jnecesary. Haberdasher.
