Grand Jcnctiok, Colo, Jan. 8 Leavs
ing Colorado Springs, we again stpp
aboard the little nurrow gauge which we
first timidly boards at Denver with mis
giving and doubt ss to our uncertain fu
ture, a fetling, however, which bv the
time we had traversed the Royal Gorge
was changed intc one of assured trust,
confidence and tafety. It penetrates
the deepest reces es and traverses the
short curves of those immense, dark
canons at a fearfi.l speed, but runs as
smoothlv as if it were running on a
straight line, having none of that sensa
tion as if you were on a tangent for
"kingdom come" sometimes experienced
on the wide track while rounding a sharp
cu"rye. We tip our hat in sublime def
erence and admiration to the iron horse
of the narrow gau,e as be roams the val
leys of the Arkansas, the Gunnison, the
Cimarron and the Jordan; now descend
ing their gulches, or plunging through
their awful cauots; but the climax is
reached, and we ajain reverently tip our
hat to him, when finully, after winding
about the mountt.in crests he proudly
plants himself on i.op of the Rocky moun
tains when the summit is reached at Mar
shall pass at an altitude of 10.858 feet
above the level of the sea. When you
get married make your bridal tour over
the Denver S Kio ttrande to Halt Lake,
but keep a sharp look out for the Mer
man elders when you arrive in the valley
of the Jordan.
Resuming our journey, forty-five miles
from Colorado S-incs, 120 miles south
from Denver, wilt, the low green wooded
foot hills of the blue tinted rme of the
Rocky mountains to (lie west and the
Colorado plains to the east of us, we ar
rive at Pueblo, now about to boom, a
city of no mean proportions, boasting of
its 2D. 000 population, an1 here our to
pography cLange-4. Turnine westward
we take a parting look at Pike's Peak,
and glide smoothly along the valley of the
Arkansas, passing villages with school
houses and churches, improved farms,
oil wells, cattle ranches, meadows and
orchards on the way before reaching
Canon City. N w the guide book says:
"from Canon City to Malt Lake is the
Switzerland of America" and the descrip
tion may be a gool one, but what do the
readers of the Argus know about Switz
erland? When A. D. Richardson pub
lished his book "vVest of the Misaiss.p
pi," I was eager to read his description of
the Tosemite. Iciatrine my disappoint
ment on reading tie hook to find that all
he said about it was "see the Tosemite
and die." If you visit the Yosemiie and
from Glazier point look down 4,000 feet
into that perpendicular, grand chasm,
and its mountain icenery you are after.
don't cash in your ch ps just yet, but wait
until you have taken your bridal tour
over the Denver & Rio Grande. The
fact of It is language is inadequate
to describe and gire one a fair conception
that will not be di appointing of the won
drous beauties of ibis grand scenic line.
I have before me a pen picture of the
route, elegantly, e aborately and cunning
ly touched by a master band. Here it is:
"Just beyond Canon City we reach
THE GRAND CANC X OF THE ARKANSAS,
the narrowest portion of which is known
as the Royal Gore. After entering its
depths, the train moves along the side of
the Arkansas aid around projecting
shoulders of dark hued granite deeper,
deeper and deeper into the heart of the
range. The crested crags grow higher,
the river madly foams along its rocky
bed, and anon tbe way becomes a mere
fissure through tie heights. Far above
tbe road tbe sky for.i s a deep blue arch
of light; but in tie gorge hang d&tk and
sombre shades wl ich the sun's rays have
ne'er penetrated. The place is a meass
ureless gulf of sir with solid walls on
either side. Now the granite cliffs are a
thousand feet his ), smooth and uubroken
by tree or shrub; and there is a pinnacle
wnicn soars ssyward lor thrice that dis
tance. No flowers grow, and tha birds
care not to penetiate tbe solitudes. Tbe
river, sombre and swift, breaks the awful
stillness with its roar. Soon tbe cleft
becomes still more .narrow, tbe treeless
cliffs higher, tbe river closer confined, and
where a long iron bridge hangs suspend
ed from the smooth walls, the grandest
portion of tbe canon is reached. Man
becomes dwarfed and dumb in the sub
lime scene and nature exhibits the power
she possesses. I he crags menacingly
rear their beads aoove the daring intrud
era, and the place 1 like tbe entrance to
some infernal region.
Lenving tbe Go "ge we rapidly descend
the narrow valley of the Upper Arkansas
until Salida is reached. Here we leave
tbe train and stay over night. From
Salida a branch runs to Leadville and
other mining points in the mountains
Tbe main line ensues the Arkansas and
over tbe Mule Shoe curves around tbe
mountain crests aid in an hour's time we
are on the summit at Marshall Pass.
Another pen picture: "Looking back
over the way ve have come, Mount
Ouray stands, bire, solitary and high
above its mates, t our left. Around it
lies a sea of granite billows, tumbled
wildly together, tnd holding within their
giant embrace green valleys and sparkling
streams. Away m the distance rise the
long continued hoigbts of the Sangre de
Ibristo Kange, white with everlasting
snows on their c rests, but lower down
covered with dart; forests. At their base
is the great San Luis park, sloping away
in an unseen distance. The wind is cold;
all nature hardened; and a mlence, deep,
unfathomable, reigns about us
Bnt turning to the westward, tbe scene
changes. At our feet and
doubling back an 1 forth down the moun
tain side, are tb loops leading to the
valley. It disappears with tbe forests,
but is seen again far down the narrow
vale. There runs Tomichi creek, through
sylvan shades, and beyond, hazy, ob
soured in the cisiance, is the broad
plateau en which Gunnison City stands.
We are above all neighboring peaks and
the country is ei posed beneath us, with
its every beauty thown.
Tbe descent begins, and the road winds
around projecting headlands on tbe verge
of vast precipices, treads dark recesses
where patches of light fall through leafy
canopies npon ton green slopes, follows
the windings of tie Tomichi." Now the
train rolls into t le valley and on to tbe
Gunnison, tbe ch tnnel soon narrows, tbe
cliffs are high, and suddenly the broken
summits shut out the sunlight tnd we
find ourselves between the dark walls of
BLACK CAN OS OF THE OUNKISOH.
IH give you another pen picture. "This
gorge is grander, deeper, darker and yet
more beautiful than tbe one we have so
lately penetrated. It is thrice as long,
has more verdure, and, although tbe
walls are dark hoed enough to give the
place Ju name, still they are of red sand
stone in many p aces, and from their
crevices and their tops, shrubs, cedars and
Dtmoaa arrow In r ch abundance.
At timet the cane n narrows and it full f
sharp curves, bnt again bat long, wide
stretches which enables one to study the
steep crags that tower heavenward two
or three thousand feet. Cunecanti
Needle, the most abrupt and isolated of
these pinnacles, hat all the grace and
symmetry of a Cleopetra obelisk. It is
red-hued from point to base and stands
like a grim eentinel. watchful of the
canon's solitudes. At the junction of the
Gunnison and the Cimarron, a bridge
spans the gorge, from which the beauties
Of tbe canon are seen at their best. Som
bre shades prevail; the streams fill the
space with heavy roars and the sunlight
fall on the topmost pines, but never
reaches down the dark red walls. Huge
boulders lie scattered about; fitful winds
sweep down the deep clefts; nature has
created every thing on a grand scale: de
tail is supplanted by magnificence, and
the place is one appealing to our deepest
Leaving the Black Canon we climb
another divide and enter the Uncom
pahgn Valley which we follow past Mont
rose until we again encounter the Gunni
son. We are now among the rich farm
ing lands of the Ute reservation and be
fore we arrive at Grand Junction we pass
through tbe lower Gunnison Canon with
its wonderful and attractive scenery and
enter the grand River Valley.
Weary and tired of looking, we left
the train and stayed over night at Grand
Junction. Being desirous of further in
formation before retiring for the night, I
had a pleasant conversation with the
landlady. Among other things, she told
me "they raised strawberries in the valley
all the year round." I asked her how
cold it got She replied, "the thermom
eter once stood at 120 for three days in
succession and, of course, killed the
strawberry vines, but that was the cold
est that had ever been known in the val
ley." I said no more, but thought to
myself, perhaps she takes me for a
Standing in the corridor of the hotel in
Denver I found I was the subject of a
conversation and was being critically ex
amined by a couple of gentlemen in tbe
hallway. I oveiheard one of them say to
"That real estate man had him out this
afternoon showing him about the city.
I will bet you the drink9 he is a tender
foot." "Done," said the other, "for I believe
he is a chump."
They, of course, did not intend I
should bear them, but I did, and turning
upon them with an air of injured inno
cence. I said to the first speaker:
"This time you are mistaken, I am not
a tenderfoot, but my best girl has often
called me a 'chump ' I once called a
queen full in a game of poker for $2
when I held a straight flush. Then again
I was called a 'chump.'" "No, I never
The First Baptist Church.
Sunday was a If3d letter day at the
First Baptist church. Pastor Leland
preached to young converts in the morn
ing and at tbe close of the sermon gave
tbe right hand of fellowship to twenty
seven persons who have recently united
with the church. Standing closely before
the pulpit they formed a line which ex
tended clear across the audience room.
Their ages ranged from twelve to fifty
five years. Thirteen of the number were
tbe pastor he took each by tbe right band,
beads of families representing nine fami
lies. There were two complete house
holds. The youngest was twelve years,
and all but six were above fifteen years
of age. After appropriate remarks by
giving a formal welcome to the duties,
privileges and obligations of the church,
during which a majority of the congre
gation were moved to tears, the
ordinance of the Lord's Supper
was observed. The every night meetings
were attended by crowds and the interest
fully sustained up till the close on Friday
night, when many could not gain admits
tance. Meetings will be held on Wed
nesday and Friday evenings.
Tomorrow Sight' show.
Tomorrow night tbe dramatized ver
sion of Jules Verne's famous novel,
"Around the World in Eighty Days,"
will be presented at Harper's theatre.
The Baltimore Daily 2Ww says:
"Around the World in Eighty Days"
was greeted at Harris' academy of music
last night by an audience which packed
tbe house, and many persons who en
deavored to purchase Beats were unable
to do so. There is scarcely any show on
tbe stage which possesses so many effec
tive climaxes as this, and the immense
audience present last night was kept in a
constant state ol applause. There are
seven acts and a number of effective tab'
leaux. yet so smoothly was the pieoe
bandied that the curtain dropped on the
last act at 10:45 p. m. W. J. Flemiug,
the original "Pnineas Fogg," sustained
that part with au imperturbability that
tne original could not have surpassed.
Arnold Wolf red impersonated "Passe
Partout," the French valet, and was es
pecially good in tbe scene where he be
came intoxicated and lost Mr. Fogg's
money; Harry Stoddard was an excellent
"Detective Fix," and James P. Fleming,
Miss Edith Potter and Miss Cecil Rees
were, respectively, the "American Archi
bald," "Aouda" and "Ayeesha.' The
great special feature was the corps de
ballet, which executed an elaborate
Maaratlne's High Bridge.
The second bridge meeting, held at the
city hall, Muscatine, on Saturday even
ing, was, says the Tribune, like unto the
first in numbers, enthusiasm and tbe
earnest resolve of the solid citizenship of
Muscatine to span the Mississippi with a
bridge. Tbe hall was packed with tax
payers and the sentiment in favor of the
bridge was not only unanimous it was
mandatory. The sentiment was unani
mously in favor of the voting of a three
per cent tax to build tbe bridge. The
diagram of the proposed bridge for Mus
catine, as made out by Mr. Tschirgl, en
gineer, was an object of interested atten
tion before and after the meeting. It
shows tbe bridge as eighteen feet wide in
the clear, with spans 250 feet in length,
except the center span, which is 440 feet
long. This span is located over tbe
channel and is flftysflve feet above high
water mark, and in case a railroad bridge
should be put in. the draw would be
placed under this span and there would
till be room on each tide for steamboats
to past. The estimated cost of the bridge
is f 183,461.
The Cold Wave.
The decline in temperature indicated
bt the hoistiug. of tbe black, flag yester
day afternoon, came in on time. Tbe
mercury marked 46 degrees above zero
at that time, and this morning found it at
the zero point, while predictions are that
It may be till colder.
