The na itlful Surroundings and Charming
Climate of the North Carolina Resort.
Asheville, N. C, Feb. 24. Editor
of Tm Akgus. The mountains of
North Carolina have attracted the at
tention of invalids for many years,
as iKissossing unlimited resources, in
the ozone of their atmosphere and
nectar of their running streams, for
restorit g and building up failing
health. The air and water are in
deed pure, and the elevation such,
that this region is named "The Land
of the Sky." Asheville is situated
upon a group of hills, surrounded by
a chain of mountain peaks, which re
cede ir irregular order, the most
distant the highest, which encircle
the city like a pinnacled wall, on all
sides. Three hundred peaks are vis
ible from the city of Asheville. The
largest hotel. Battery Park, is lo
cated upon the highest point within
the city limits, and commands a line
view of the mountains.
Ther; seems to be an entire lack
of valleys, as though the hills had
been m irshalled in solemn conclave
and the commander of Nature's
mighty forces had failed to invite the
valleys to join the company. Nature
has prwided every inducement to
the ma l or woman who is in pursuit
of health, and the inevitable accom
paniment of good health, happiness,
life-giv ing air. pure water and charm
ing scenery. Enterprising compa
nies aiid individuals have supple
mented kind Mother Nature's efforts
for the well being of her children in
the criction of hotels and homes
where the weak or. weary mav find
the comforts of a real home and en
joy the benelits of this wonderful
climate. There, arc two large
hotels the Battery Park, in the
center of the ' city: Thenil
worth Inn is about one mile from
the center on a commanding
elevation. Not far distant from the
famed Vanderbilt park there is
another hotel and sanatorium com.
bi led Oakland Heights of w hich
wc can speak of greater certainty, as
we hav been its guests for two win
ters. It is located upon a high point
about one mile from the city, eom
mandir g a tine view of the vast cir
cle of mountains anil of the changing
shadows of which one never tires.
The medical department is under the
charge of Dr. Hunter, an aide and
experienced physician from New
York City, who with his family re
sides ir the house. The establish
ment is owned by ex-Governor Stech
man, oi North Carolina, a gentl.mian
of high standing in the state. w ho re
sides with his family at the hotel,
which is a very pleasant feature of
the hot '1 life to those who make Oak
land Heights their home from vear
Many I'ointit of luterest.
There are many points of interest
within easy distance from the hotels.
The drives among the mountains
are charming. The Vanderdilt resi
dence is the mccca to which all pil
grims resort sooner or later. The
mansio i stands upon a loftv peak
overlooking the valleys if there
were Vi llcys here ratlier the basin
of hills, among which winds the
Uautifil Swananoa and the raml
French Broad rivers. The Vander
bilt paik comprises ft.iMMi acres of
mountain peaks and table lands
sloaphi' down to the Swananoa
which Hows through the estate for a
long distance. A private road hail
ing to Ihe mansion has been macad
amized for a distance of two miles.
It has been supervised ami de
sighed by a landscape artist. A peb
bly bed has been laid each side of the
roadway and mountain streams di
verted to dance over the white stones,
vines h ivc been transplanted to cover
withvirrlure the granite curbing,
graeefi 1 arched bridges gleaming
throng i vistas opening among
the trees. and to complete
the whole effect rhododen
drons I ave been transplanted in im
mense numbers, lining the entire
way on each side, when in full bloom.
The view must seem a veritable fairlv
Iand. The whole park will indeed
be a m raele of beauty, for hundreds
of men are busily working, making
every part to bloom like a garden. H
is said that Mr. Vanderbilt intends to
extend $1,000,000 on this place everv
year ui til it is finished. It is an en
terprise which affords subsistence
and plenty to many families which
before -.vere strangers to an assured
supjKirt. Thus the seemingly unwise
expenditure of millions may be de
fended conscientiously by the univer
sal law of compensation which pre
vails in finance, as well as in all things
else. Asheville and surroundings
may In enjoyed in summer as well as
winter. The clear, bracing atmos
phere ff the mountains is delightful
even in midsummer. This feature,
equable temperature, has induced
many I orthern men to locate hand
