A MOUNTAIN PICNIC.
HOW THE CHIEF MOl'HNEH ENJOYED HIMSELF
AND MADE MATTERS PLEASANT KOIl
(Bill Nye in the Salt Lake Trllmue.)
Several days ago I had tho pleasuro
of acting as chief mourner at a mountain
picnic. This subject lias been pretty well
represented iu romance and song already,
but venture to give my experience as being
U little out of the ordinary. The joy which
is experienced in the dad free life of the
picnicker is always before tlie picnic On
the evening before he makes tho excursion

I was jdaccd in command of a party of
ladies, who had everything arranged so
thut all I needed to do would be to get into
the buggy and drive to the mountains, eat
my lunch and drive back again. I like to
go with a party of ladies, becauso they
never make suggestions about the route or
how to drive. They are just as lull of
gemis trust and childlike confidence and
questions as they can be. They get the
unch ready and get into tho buggy and
keep thinking of things they have forgot
ten till they get 400 miles trom home, and
they sing little pieces of old songs and
won't let tlie great horrid man in charge of
the excursion have any lunch when he gets
hungry because they are hunting for a
romantic spot beneath the boughs of n
magnigcent elm, when every sane man in
the', territory knows that there isn't an elm,
big or little, within 1,432 miles.
We went up in the mountains because we
wanted to go where it would by cool. As a
search for a cool resort, this picnic of ours
was the most brilliant success. We kept
going up at an angle of forty-five degrees
from the time we left home until we had to
get out nnd walk to keep warm. Wc got
into one of the upper strata of clouds, and
a cold mist mixed with fragments of ice
cream nnd large chunks of hail and misery
about the size of a burglar-proof safu came
gathering over us. Then we camped in
tlie midst of the mountain storm, and the
various ladies sat down on their feet and
put the lap-robes over them and looked re
proachfully at me. We hovered around
under the buggy and two or three half
grown little parasols and watched the
storm. It was a glorious spectacle to the
thinking mind. They began to abuse me
because I did not make a circus of myself
and thus drive away the despair and mis
ery of the occasion. They had brought me
along, it seemed, because I was such an
amusing little cuss. It made nie a good
deal sadder than I would have been other
wise. Here in the midst of a wild and bit
ter mountain storm, so thick that you
couldn't see twenty yards away, with noth
ing to t at but some marble cake soaked in
vinegar and a piece of cold tongue yith u
red ant on it, I whs expected to make a
hippodrome and negro minstrel of myself.
I burst into tours, and tried to sit OU my
feet as the ladies did. 1 couldn't do it so

simultaneously and so extemporaneously,

Dear reader, did you ever Bit amidst the
silence and solitude of tho mountains and
feel the hailstones rolling down your back,
melting and soothing you and filling your
heurt with treat surging thoughts of the
b, " e,
o r a o
sweet by nnd by, and death, and tho grave,
,'d other mirth-provoking toj.ics? We had
uw ,yvji.i. ,..fi.. imi iiuuviivi w,iHin nullum
food, it seemed to me, and I mildly
suggested that I would like something
to eat rather than die of starvation
in the midst of plenty, but the ladies
wouldn't givo mo so much ns a sum
handwich to preserve my life. They
told me to smoke if I felt that I mtiKt have
nourishment, nnd coldly refused to let mo
sample the pickled spiders and cold pressed
gjjiies. So, in the midst of all this prepared
dishoti'i had to go out into the sagebrush
times ort raw gr.iwihopperH and prickly pears.
Two rivJ'y w,Kn w concluded that we
had seen about all the mountain storm wo
nocded in our business, and didn't pino for
any more hailstones and dampness, wo
hitched up again and started homo. Then
wo got lost. Tho ladies felt indignant and
I was delighted. I never was so lost In all
my life. When I was asked whero I
thought I was, I could cheerfully reply
that I didn't know, and that would stop tho
conversation for as much as two minutes.
Tho beauty of being lost i3 that you aro
all tho time seeitig new object. There is
a charm of novelty about being lost that
one does not fully understand until he has
been there, so to spenk. When I would
say that I didn't know where the road led
to that we were traveling one of tho party
would suggest, with mingled bitterness
and regret, that wc had better turn back.
Then I would turn back. I turned back
seventeen times at the request of various
members of the party for whom I had and
still have the most unbounded respect. Fi
nally we got so accustomed to tho various
objects along this line of travel that wo
pined for a change. Then we drove ahead
a little further and found the road. It had
been there all the time. It is there yet.
I never had so much fun in all my life.
It don't take much to please me, however.
I am of a cheerful disposition anyhow.
Some of tho ladies brought homo colum
bines that hsd been drowned ;others brought
home beautiful green mosses with red bugs
in them and others brought home lichens
and ferns and neuralgia. I didn't bring
anything home. I was glad to get home
myself and know that I was there.
I took the lunch basket and examined it.
It looked sick and unhappy. At first I
thought I would pick the red ants out of
the lunch; then I thought it would save
time to pick the lunch out of the red ants;
but finaly I thought I would compromise by
throwing tho whole thing into the alley.
I am now preparing a work to be called the
"Pick dicker's Guide, or Starvation Made
Easy and Even Desirable." It will supply
a want long felt, and will be within the
reach of all.
