(Copyright by Edgar W. Nye.
The Hornet's Nest,
On the Brow op the Catskhxs,
Aug. 80, 1890.
My letter is dated from the Hornet's,
Neat, not' because that is the name of
the place where I am, but because it
sounds better to attach some rugged,
sylvan epithet to it. I once decided to
visit an acquaintance who had named
his place The Elms. I went partly be
' cause his invitation was evidently so hol
low and insincere that to punish him se
verely 1 went.
He had The Elms worked on his
clothes, and embossed on his stationery.
ON A LOAD OF HAY.
and blown in his glass, and it pained
him to eat his victuals from lineu thnt
didn't have The Elms emblazoned on it.
He told me to come and surprise him
any time, and shoot in his preserves and
stay till business compelled me to come
to town again. He had no doubt heard
that I never surprised any one, and never
went away from home very much, and
so thought it would be safe. Therefore
I went I just went to teach him a val
uable lesson. When I go to visit a man
for a week he is certainly going away a
better man, or else punishment is of no
avail, and the chastening rod entirely
nseless in his case.
The Elms was a misnomer. It should
have been called The Shagbark or The
Doodle Bug's Lair. It was supposed to
mean a wide sweep of meadow, a Vine
covered lodge, a broad velvet lawn and
a carriage way, where the drowsy locust,
in the sensuous shadow of magnanimous
elms, gnawed a file at intervals through
the day, while back of all this the
mossy and gray whiskered frout and
corrugated brow of the venerable archi
tectural pile stood off and admired itself
in the deep and glassy pool at its base.
In the first place none of the yeomanry
for eight miles knew that he called his
old, malarial , tank The Elms, so it was
hard to find. But when I described the
looks of the lord of The Elms they wank
at each other and wag-ged their heads
and said, "Oh hell, yes, we know him,"
or words that were still even less eu
phonious than that.
When I got there he was down cellar
sprouting potatoes, and his wife was
hanging out upon the clothes line a pair
of gathered summer trousers that were
evidently made for a man who had been
badly mangled in a saw mill.
The Elms was 'not even picturesque,
and the preserves were out of order. I
was received with the same cordiality
which you detect on the face of any
other kind of detected liar. He wanted
to be regarded as a remarkable host and
landed proprietor without being really
hospitable. I remained there at The
Elms for two days, nibbing rock salt
and Cayenne pepper into the wounds of
my host, and suggesting different names
for his home, such as The Tom Tit's
Eyrie, The Weeping Willow, The Crook
Neck Squash and The Muskrat's Re
treat. Then I came away. His old look
of apprehensive cordiality did not leave
him until he had seen me climb on a
load of hay with my trunk and start for
So when I put a May-Agnes-Fleming
name on any place I may be at, when I
write a piece for the paper, it is mostly
done to be mischievous.
TheCatskills are full of people this
summer, and I presume there is a larger
population of "boarders," as wo are
called indiscriminately, than ever before;
for the number of available points to
which the victims of humidity and poor
plumbing may retreat in summer time
is constantly on the increase, while, so
far as 1 know, all the private and public
boarding places are filled to their utmost
capacity. This means a good deal when
one considers the great area of country
called the Catskills. Everywhere the
gandy boarder in flannels and ecru shoes
looms upon the green lawn or the brown
dirt road, or scales the mountain today
and stays in bed the following week,
rubbing James B. Pond's Extract on his
I scaled Mount Utsayantha a 6hort
time ago in company with others. We
picked out a nice hot day, and selecting
the most erect wall of the mountain,
facing west, we scaled it in such a way
that it will not have to be done again
till new scales grow out on it.
Mount Utsayantha is 8.8C5 feet above
sea level, and has a brow which reminds
me of mine. It is broad, massive and
bleak. The foot of the mountain is more
massive, however. From the top of the
mountain one gets a view of six or seven
states with a good glass, 1 was told. Pos
sibly there were that many in sight,
though at this season of tho year states
look so much alike that it takes an ex
pert to pick them out readily. When
states are moulting it is all I can do to
tell Vermont from Massachusetts. One
gets a nice view from this mountain
and highly exhilarating birch beer.
I Albany can be distinctly seen with a
glass a field glass, I meannot a glass
of birch beer. Some claim that the nub
of Governor Hill's boom may be seen
protruding from the state house with
the nude vision. Others say they can
see tho Qreen mountains, and as far
south as the eye can reach. We took
two hours and a half for the ascent
of the mountain, and came down in
about twenty minutes. We descended
ungracefully the way the Irishman
claimed that tho toad walked, viz., "git
up and sit down."
Mount Utsayantha I use the accepted
orthography as found in tho Blackhawk
dictionary has a legend also. Many
centuri ago this beautiful valley was
infested by the red brother and Lis
bronze progeny. Where now the red
and blue blazer goes shimmering through
the swaying maples, and the girl with
her other dress on and her straw colored
canvas cinch knockth the croquet ball
gayly west, once there dwelt an old chief
whom we will call Polka Dot, the pride
of his people. He k jked somewhat like
William Maxwell Evarts, but was a
heavier set man. Places where old Polka
Dot sat down and accumulated rest for
himself are still shown to city people
whose faith was not overworked while
Old Polka Dot was a firm man, with
double teeth all around, and his prowess
got into the personal columns of the pa
pers every little while. He had a daugh
ter named Utsayantha, which means "a
messenger sent hastily for treasure," so
I am told, or possibly old Polka Dot
meant to imply "one sent off for cash."
This idea is my own, and possibly of
Anyhow Utsayantha grew to be quite
comely, as Indian women go. I-never
saw one yet that couldn't stop an ordi
nary planet by looking at it steadily for
two minutes. She dressed simply, we:ir
ing the same clothes while tooling cross
country before breakfast that she wore
at the scalp dance the evening before.
In summer time she shellacked herself
and visited the poor. Taking a little
box of water colors in a shawl Btrap, bo
that she could change her clothes when
ever she felt like it, she would go away
and be gone for a fortnight at a time,
visiting the nltra fashionable people of
Finally a white man penetrated this
region. He did it by asking tho brake
man on the West Shore road how to get
here and then doing differently. In that
way he had no trouble at all. He saw
Utsayantha and loved her almost in
stantly. She was shucking a mnskrat
at the time, and ho could not but ad
mire her deftness and skill. From that
moment ho could not drivo her image
from his heart. He sought her again
and again to tell her of his passion, but
she would jump the fence and flee like a
frightened fawn with a split stick on its
tail, if such a comparison may be per
mitted. At last ho won her, and mar
ried her quietly in his working clothes.
The nearest justice of the peace was
then in England, and so rather than
wait he was married informally to Ut
sayantha by repeating to her with great
solemnity the following stanza:
Ena mena mina mo.
Catch a Digger by tho toe;
When he hollers let hiio go.
O-U-T spells out.
While this had no special bearing on
the case it awed Utsayantha, and she
went home very much impressed, in
deed. That fall a littlo russet baby
came to bless their union. Tho blessing
was all he had with him when he was
Then the old chief Polka Dot arose in
his wrath, to which he added a pair of
moose hide moccasins, and he upbraided
his daughter for her course. He up
braided her with a piazza pole from his
wigwam. -He was very much agitated.
Sb was tho pole.
Then he cursed her for being the
mother of a i breed child, and stalking
Jth he slew tho white man by cutting
open hjs trunk and disarranging lus
reins. He then wiped the stab knife
in his tossing mane, and grabbing lus
grandson by his swaddling clothes fce
hurled the surprised little stranger into
Lake Utsayantha. By pouring another
pailful of water into the lake the child
was drowned successfully.
Then the widowed and childless Ut
sayantha came forth as night settled
down upon the beautiful valley and the
day died peacefully on the mountain
tops. Her eyes were red with weeping,
and her breath was punctuated with
sobs. Putting on a pair of high rubber
boots she waded out into the middle of
i the lake, where there is quite a deep
place, and drowned herself.
This should teach us never to kill a
son-in-law without getting his wife's

ever afterward, it is said, whenever any
spoke of the death of his daughter and
her family, he would color up and
change the subject.
Stamford, at the base of this mount
ain, is a five hours' ride from Weehaw
ken, and according to my notion is the
ideal mountain resort. God has done
much for Stamford, and Dr. Churchill
has encouraged nature in a good many
ways. It is a neat, handsome village,
with just enough civilization to soothe
existence and teach us to pay for what
we get. We often find Boots where
nature has broken the record in getting
together the elements of health and
beauty, but man, poor, weak, measly
man, gets in there, and robs and holds
up and knocks down anil drags out lus
fellow till the angels turn away and
weep on each other's shoulders. Just as

with greedy eyes often flock to the beau
tiful sites for thriving towns, and there
cling upon tho corporation like big red
caterpillars till one by one its fountains
dry up and the dead leaves in the parks
fall upon tho moss grown and sodden
paths beneath. At last, old and flabby,
with nothing to feed upon but the slimy
reminiscences of successful obstruction
ism and swift decay, they cling about
the cracker barrel and sour cider of the
last mercantile relic of the place, and
brag over tho grave of their perished
possibilities, and cackle with devilish
mirth over the money "they have saved
Stamford, by some singular accident,
has fallen into good hands. That is why
the same people have been coining here
summer after summer for sixteen or
eighteen years. ' That is why the place
is a thrifty little eighteen karat orna
ment to the already beautiful brow of
nature. That is why tho comfortable
homes and hotels overflow with happy,
hungry and contented guests, and it is
why their children's children for many
generations will flee from the loud smell
ing pandemonium of disemboweled and
fetid Broadway to breatho the atmos
phere of clover scented fields, and for

ish, hustling, pelt peeling town in the ,
hospitable homes of Stamford.
This is not a page from a forthcoming
guide book to the Catskills, but the sin
cere sentiments of a plain boarder who
pays every week and leaves a mighty
small margin for his landlady. I speak
thusjofStamford because I would have

same thing a year a 'o, and thus saved
me much tiresome ar d expensive search.

anes Away at an Karl' Thin Mern
lat. Judge W. L Cook lied at the home of
his danghier-hvdaw, J Irs. M. A. Cook, on
the Rockingham road below Davenport
at 3 o'clock this morning. For the past
five years, and until July last he had lived
in Rock Island, having ten years ago
married Mrs. Margaret Ctse, of this city,
and the two aged people lived happily to
gether until Mrs. Cook was stricken with
paralysis, when she was removed to her
daughter's home at Ottawa, and Mr Cook
taken to his daughter-in-law's home
across the river, to be cared for. Judge
Cook was born in Beikshire comity.

was united in marring ! with Miss Polly
Brockway. One chill was born unto
them. Mrs. Cook died May 30. 1831.
Mr. Cook afterwards married Miss Alniira
Woodhull. In 1835 Mr. Cook built a
raft on tho Allegheny river, and with his
family floated down on it to the Ohio riv
er, and from thence to St. Louis. Here
he made the acquaintance of a govern
ment officer and secured pussage for his
family, together with his household ef
fects, to Rock Island. Arriving here he
employed an Indian to row himarnss
the river to Davenport, where his father
had settled. Arrangements were at once
made to bring over his family and house
hold goods. He felled trees and erected a
log house on the property now owned by
hie daughter-in-law, Mia. A. M. Cook. In
the spring of 1836 be planted a few acres
of corn and in the fall he gathered twelve
bushels which he placed in the loft of
his house, and during t ie winter cround
it an old-fashioned coffee mill as occasion
required. At this time there was no mill
for many miles from D ivenport. Four
children were born to Mr. and Mrs Cook
Mrs. Cook died Jan. 8, 1848. and Mr.
Cook married Mrs. Elizabeth Shiek. Two
children were born to them Elijah B.
and Emma (now Mrs. August Rohlf )
Mrs. Cook died Aug. 15. 1878. and Sept.
S3, 1880, Mr. Cook again married, form
ing an alliance with Mrs. Margaret Case,
of this city, who still survives him. but
is lying in a critical condition at the
home of her daughter, Mrs. Taylor, at
Ottawa, III. Mr. Coik was for years
very prominent in Scott county Bffairs
and held every office in Davenport towns
ship. In 1S55 he wai elected county
judge, which office he held two yers.
He joined the Methodist church in 1831,
and has been a member ever since. He
