Innsbrock and Some of its Wonders
The Beantlfnl Franritraa Chmreb
and Other Placea la Mwttserland
Ascent ef Mount CJenienl Depar
ture for Paris.
Special Correspondence to tbe Allocs:
Geneva, Switzerland, Aug.. 5. One
comes to Innsbrock from Munich over tbe
charming Ailberg pass, the railway pass
ing around the shores of lovely lakes
elevated far above them, passing through
long tunnels and over bridges all strongly
built of stoue. In fact the railroads in
this country are built to stand wear and
tear, being of the most substantial char
acter in every respect. Innsbrock is
charmingly situated on the River Iven
and its ancient port is most quaint and
interesting. Long low arcades with shops
for goods of every description run under
the fronts of bui.dings, with dark rooms
behind them for the storage of the stock
The Franciscan church of the sixteenth
century is filled with monuments and
statues of ancient worthies men and
women. The monument Maiamilian is
adorned with carving which Thorwalden
(so say the guide books) pronounced the
most perfect of its kind in Europe. Ttie
mouument of Andreas llofer, the Itera
tor of the Austrian Tyrol, is also in this
church. In another church one finds tbe
famous, veiled Madonena, which was pre
sentnfby a former sovereign and which
it is claimed has worked miracles. The
museum is full of works of art and espec
ially Tyrolese curiosities.
The railroad from' Innsbrock to Lu
zerne passes tbe charming Lakes Zurich
and Zug, with cities of the same name,
lovely views of fields and mountains open
at every advance. Grapes and other
fruits in abundance; in fact pears,
peaches, apricots, cherries and berries are
found in Germany and Switzerland every
where tn great abundance. Luzerne is on
the beautiful lake of that name, delight
fully situated on an arm of the lake with
the Kiel and Mt. 1'ittlusin full view in
clear weather. Very fine steamers run on
the lake and convey one to the little vil
lages, where the railway can be taken for
the ascent of Mts. ri talus ant the Kigi
These mountain railroads are built with
a center rail fitted for cogs and though
the grade is awfully steep, no accidents
have occurred as jet. The views from
the Rigi and Pitalus are wonderfully
beautiful on a fine day, and many people
wait in these mountain towns days, in or
der to get a view. A strance tradition
prevails concerning Mount Pilatus, viz.:
that Pontious Pilate drowned himself in
a small lake near the summit. Two
queer old bridges cross the Uber which
passes through the city, wooden bridges
covered, and in the roof are queer old
paintings on wood, the one representing
the "Dance of Death," the other the
"Lives of the Saints." The city has a
great many fine hotels, and at this sea
son is full of visitor tourists every
where. From Luzerne one passes over the
Bruoig pass 3.391 feet above the sea a
charming ride all the way to Brietiz,
where a little steamer awaits you to car
ry you the whole length of Lake Brinz
to Interlochen a city of hotels lying
between La fees Brienz and Theren. A
short ride by rail brings one to Lake
Theren wnere a steamer takes you over
the lake to the village of Theren. These
lakes lie in deep valleys, snow capped
mountains , are always in sight,
while the shores are dotted with
quiet little hamlets, with grain
fields and fruit trees stretching
along mile after mile. Theren is a de
lightful place for a week's stay. The
hotels have beautiful gardens, with flow
ers, croquet, lawn tennis, archery, bil
liards, music and in fact, everything to
delight and captivate one. From Theren
we took a carriage for a five hours' ride
to Eanderstagg at the foot of the Gemeni
Pass. Kanderstagg is in a narrow val
ley, 4, (NX) teet above the sea; high moun
tains encircle it on all sides but one, and
that one only a narrow gorge for a road.
We drove up to the hotel after dark in a
pouring rain with thunder and lightning,
weary and dreary. Mine host met us at
tbe door with a hearty greeting in Swiss
English, showed us to pleasant rooms,
said tablo d' bote would be ready at b
o'clock, etc. We went down and found
a regular table d' bote, with many people
of many nationalities, all either going
over or having come oyer the Oemeni.
Wild strawberries and cream, delicious
honey, fresh brook trout, etc., were on
the table, and we went to bed feeliog
that Switzerland bad not given us a
heartier greeting anywhere than we
found in this lonely valley among the
snow-capped mountains. We were
called at 5 o'clock, and after a nice break
fast, mounUd on horses at 6 o'clock
for a ride to the summit of
the Gemeni. 7.55:J feet. The ride up was
easy and delightful. Snow peak after
peak broke in on our vision, flowers of
lovely tints everywhere, and probably
forty to fifty people going up, all of whom
we passed on the way; meeting many on
their wsy down.
The ride up was five hours, the walk
down on tbe other side two hours. Since
the death of a young lady from falling
from her horse, people are not permit
ted to ride down tbe mountain, and in
fact the path is so sleep that I do not see
that it would he very desirable, but the
walk down is something to tax one, being
an almost perpendicular precipice, thn
path being cut into the rock and twisting
about like a winding stair. After a bath
in the natural hot baths of Lenkerbad,
93 to 123 temperature, a drive of five
hours brings one to Lenke of Susten, the
railway station, where one takes train for
Vish. At Vish a chancre of train carries
one to Stalden, the present terminus of
the mountain railway now being built to
Zennalt. Stalden is a little hamlet of a
few hundred people, one small hotel and
streets, two in number, and not over
eight feet wide, running up the hill from
tbe Station. Perhaps sixty people were
on the train all bound for Zennalt. The
hotel was crowded and many placed in
the huts outside, twenty being sent to the
priest's bouse. We secured horses at
once and a guide, and weary as we were,
pushed on to St. Necolous, a two hours'
ride over a rough mountain pass with fir
forests and waterfalls. Glacier river and
precipices abounding. A good supper and
bed at St. Necolous and up and off at 7 a.
m. for a five hours' ride to Zennalt along
a valley road with mountains in sight
everywhere, precipices and gorges, water
falls and chatels of the rudest descrip
tion. In fifteen minutes after reaching
Zennalt we were in the saddle for a five
hours ride up tn the Gornes Grat of
which I must write in my next. I am
well and feeling refreshed. We leave
for Paris this a. m. Adieu. R. F. S.

TOE DRAW PIER.
The Corneratane Laid. Yesterday Al
teraoon Prozress mt the Work.
The cornerstone of the new draw pier
at Rock Island bridge was laid yesterday
afternoon. By means of a derrick the
immense stone, guided by three brawny
masons, was lowered into its place, in the
presence of Col. J. M. Whittemore and
Engineer Charles Francis; the click of the
camera near by announced that the pho
tographer's art had perpetuated the
event, and all was over. The laying of
the stone marks an important point in the
progress of the work the beginning of
tbe end. Unless something entirely un
expected happens, the mason work can
now be pushed steadily forward until the
pier is completed. Interruptions from
high water, from damage from passing
boils, and other causes, have caused de
lay, but there is little likelihood of any
further trouble from these sources. Sev
eral days' time, about a hundred barrels
of cement and a large amount of rock
have been consumed within the past week
in overcoming an unforseen obstacle.
The pier is being placed upon the solid
rock bottom of the river, and when the
mud was cleared off last week a pocket
was uncovered which has necessitated a
fill eight feet in depth and of equal
width, and sixty feet long. Now the
pocket is tilled, and everything is pro

Much of the time was spent in conten

reelection of Schueler was strongly op
posed by a majority of the Chicago dele'

C. Fink, of Kansas City, to which city
the place of publication will be removed
Last evening prizes were distributed at
Turner hail. The gold headed cane
voted to the most popular officer of the
national society went to President Carl

KoBKtt on Moline.
In his pulpit at the First Baptist church
at Moline Sunday night. Rev. Oilman
Parker said: "I have been informed that
there was more drunkenness and rowJy
ism in Moline last night than ever before
in its history I" He prayed earnestly that
tbe footsteps of some of the young peo-
; pie of Moline might be turned from the
broad to tbe narrow path. Mr. Parker
was seen by a Republican represent ttive
today and stated that he hail been in
formed that the report came from one of
Molinc's city officials that more drunken
ness and rowdyism existed on Saturday
nfght in this city, than had ever occurred
before in its history. He said that young
men and women were seen on the streets
drunk, at 4 o'clock on Sunday morning,
after having been out all night. To this
the JiepuMiain adds: However appalling
this may be it is a fact nevertheless, for
there is no doubt but that the report is
true, which is deplorable to a degree, and
should be a warning to mothers to keep
their daughters off the streets at night
at least unless they know that they are in

There is only ne way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of mucous lining of tbe Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever. Nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
any case of deafness caused bycatanh
that we cannot cure by taking Hall's
Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars, free.

Perhaps no disease has puzzled and
baffled the medical profession more than
nasal catarrh. While not immediately
fatal it is among the most distressing and
disgusting ills the flesh is heir to, and the
records show very few or no cases of rad
ical cure of chronic catarrh by any of the
multitude of modes of treatment until the
introduction of Ely's Cream Balm a few
years ago. The success of this prepara
tion has been most gratifying and sur
prising. George Washington wore a No. 11
boot. It is hardly necessary to state that
he got there with both of them.
