A VISIT TO NATUBAL BRIDGE.
A Correspondent Tells The Herald and
Newsof This Wonderful Natural For
Having occasion to visit the little
; = town of Glasgow, Va., on my way to
Newport News, Va., (thegreat Virginia
seaport) and learning that that wonder
ful formation of nature, the Natural
S Bridge of Virginia, wasonly a few miles
away, I determined to go and see the
bridge, and so, in company with Col.
Martin, of Natural Bridge, and one or
two others, I went from Glasgow, in
the Colonel's buggy to Natural bridge.
I supposed that the bridge was very
near the station. But we passed Natural
Bridge station, on the C. & 0. Railroad,
and we then drove about three miles
further before reaching the hotels at
Natural Bridge. There are two or three
of these already there and a very large
one building. The Natural Bridge
Company own about everything
r- around there. They have their stables
and. meet every train. They are not
particular. as to whether they notice
how you get to the hotel, but when
you goto leav- 'ey charge you for
hack fare both ways. I suppose they
think if you didn't come in their con
veyance you should have done so. They
eqarged me both ways when I should
nave only paid one way, having Col.
Martin's carriage. But I did not
"catch on" until later, and supposed
they were just sticking it to us as it
was at the bridge and they had us. I
'was there three hours and ate one
meal, when I called for my bill it was
$1.75, and it cost me besides that 50cts
to go under the bridge. I thought that
pretty steep, but I did not regret it, as I
had got to see the wonderful arch.
It being pretty late when I arrived at
the hotel, and I having to go to New
port on the next train, Ilost no time in
getting under the bridge to see what I
could see. I was told at the gate that I
could get a ticket for one admission, or
good for all day for 50cts or could get
one good"for the whole season for$1. I
always !ike to take a bargain when I
see it, and felt tempted to take a season
ticket, just because it was so much
cheaper than the other. But, as I did
not know that I would ever have an
other opportunity of visiting the bridge,
and as I only bad about two hours I
concluded to take the 50cts business. -I
was told by the-clerk to look up when
I got under the arch and there I would
see the American eagle. I of course
thought this was a hallucination, or a
great draw on the imaginative powers.
I was told that I would not need a
guide, but to go straight ahead and fol
low the walk. I started down the path
and went down first one flight of steps
and then another, until I began to
think I might be on my way to the
lower regions. But finally, upon turn
ing a short bend the grandest sight I
had ever beheld burst upon my view.
There to -my right, and not fifty yards
away were the solid rock walls which
were spanned by the wonderful bridge.
Te sight was awe-inspiring, and 1
stopped in my tracks, and looked up at
the bridge 215 feet above my head, feel
lng quite a hesitancy about advancing
under the dangerous looking thing.
But when I remembered that the
bridge had been there ever since the
recollection of man, and that thousands
upon thousands had been under it,
who had possibly had the-same feeling
-- of fear upon first beholding it, I ad
vanced and walked under under it.
When I got underneath the centre of it
I again looked up, and there, sure
enough I beheld, without any trouble
the American eagle, with tolerably
well-formed head, wings and tail. It
has its wings spread and its tail spread
and its head neck, and bill turned to
the left-a very good representation of
the American eagle-I did not notice
any arrows in its feet~ however.
While I was there looking at the
eagle and gazing in wonder at every
thing around me, the awful looking
ledges of rock that looked like they
would fall down any minute, and those
that had already fallen, I was accosted
by an Israelite from Cincinnati. One
of the best originals of the clothing
- store-Israelite, so often seen represented
in the almanacs and pictorial papers,
thatlIhad never seen. It was so real
that I almost expected him to ask me
* if I would like to buy "some clodings
to-day." It wasso intent in contem
plating the bridge that I bad not not
iced any one else under it until this Is
raelite with his little boy came up. The
Israelite began talking to me just as if
he had known me all his life and was
perfectly well aware that I was nearly
deaf, and that there was no sick folks
in the neighborhood. He yelled out
that this bridge was a wonderful thing.
I was very glad that he was so thought
ful as to call my attention to so impor
tant a fact, as I might have gone away
and overlooked it. He proved to be a
regular blood-hound on a red hot scent
of discovery, of the different figures,
images, etc., which are to be found in
the rock walls and the arch. These
are formed by the different colored
places or patches on the rock. He had
not gazed up the wall more than a few
seconds before he squalled out "There's
a man, see him? See the man?" so sud
denly that I whe. ed around quick,
thinking that he saw a sure enough
man pointing his gun at us. After a
little coaxing I soon saw "the man."
He was formed by a broad brown stripe
of rock, about 5 feet across, and 15 feet
high, tapering inward at the shoulders
forming a neck and outward again
forming a head, had on a loose robe, and
was stooping forward slightly, exhibit
ing a very good face, witti sharp, long
nose, and beard trimmed to a point. It
resembled the man at my side so much
that if he had on a loosegown of a mud
brown color the resemblance would
have been complete. While I was de
ciphering the different points about the
-"man" in the bridge, the Israelite again
yelled out "Oh see the sheep, the sheep,
look at the sheep," and I thought he
was going to dance the Fisher's Horn
pipe. If he had found a real $5 gold
piece he could not have been more de
lighted. He said "these things have I
discovered, the discovey is mine, mine
alone, no one knew anything of- them
before." He seemed to be so serious
about it, that I was thinking that he
rnight go.up to the office and demand
an interest in the Bridge Company for
his discoveries. He went so far as to
say they ought to give him $5 for the
new discoveries, and that they ought
to have him around to make discoveries
for them. I encouraged him to go in
and win. I could see the sheep very
plainly, and saw it about the same time
that he did, and called his attention to
its ears, one of them, the left one
seemed to be leaning forward, in a lis
tening attitude. The sheep is lying
down directly in front of the old man,
man, and near his feet, and forms a
good picture. It appears that the old
man is stooping forward to the sheep,
and the sheep seems to be listening to
him. As this picture in the rocks has
no name that I have heard of I gave it
the name of "The good Shepherd and
the Lamb." It was not long before
my friend the Israelite made another
discovery. This time it was a woman
with an abundance of skirts, and an
old lady's cap on her head. She seemed
to be pushed up into a crevis or corner,
as if she was not a distinct enough
character, and had been shoved back
out of the way. I named this "Mother
Hubbard in the Cubbard." We also
discovered the profile of a man's face,
just above the Shepherd and the Lamb
-a little to the right. For want of a
better name, I called this John the
Baptist's head, as nothing but the head
was in sight.
The eagle is directly in the centre of
the arch overhead, and from tip to tip
of wings it appears to be about 28 feet,
and from head to tail about 25 feet.
The Good Shepherd and the Lamb are
about'75 or 100 feet up the wall under
the bridge on the left hand side. There
are two black objecting stones which
answer for the Shepherd's feet. The
sheep is close to the man, about seven
feet away. Mother Hubbard is further
up on the right, about 175 feet from the
bottom. She with her skirts is about
15 or 20 feet long. Can't see her
The arch of the bridge is about 80 or
90 feet wide, and about 30 feet thick.
A wagon road runs over it, and one
might ride over it and never notice it
for the trees. The walls on the left side
entering under the bridge are almost
perpendicular without a break,and solid
rock, mostly black rock. It is said that
George Washington wrote his initials
on that wall, about 15 or 20 feet up. I
examined very closely for it, but was
unable to discover it even with theA as
sistance of the Israelite. It looks like
a matter of impossibility to scale that
wall 3 feet, much less 15. On the right
side the wall has some very small and
shallow ledges that go up 40 or 50 feet.
They are called some one's stairway, I
have forgotten his name. He made the
perilous climb up these .rocks 50 feet
and came safely down, and they were
given his name. It is impossible to
climb these rocks, but the great trouble
would be in getting down. And it
would take more nerve than the aver
age man posssto try it. I climbed
up about 15 feet to see how it went. I
got along all right, and picked up .a
shell in momento of the trip, 15 feet up
the wall. But when I started down it
was quite different from going up, and
I felt that I would not have been 50
feet up for all the bridge is worth.
There is always water trickling
down the wall, and causes it to be very
dangerous to climb. There is a branch
running under the bridge, which forms
a small pool under the centre of bridge;
it falls down the mountain into this
deep ravine. About i of a mile above
the bridge this .stream falls over
the rocks in a broad thin stream, so
thin that the rocks can be seen through
it. This in called the bridal veil. We
made no discoveries on the right hand
side of the walls, except the stairway.
The space between the walls at the
bottom under the bridge is about 80 feet,
at ends of the arch about 125 feet apart,
arch and walls solid rock. The stream
has adozen or so large boulders in it
between the walls, which have fallen
in the past, no one knows how many
years ago. The last one fell in 1890. It
is aboulder that is4 feet high 4or more
feet thick, in sight, don't know how
much of it is buried. It will weigh
many tons. Some of them are larger
than this one. It is easy to see where
they have fallen from at different
times. The places look fresh, as if they
had broken through and fallen in the
lost year or so.
Seams can be distinguished in diffe~r
ent places. And it looks like the
bridge will eventually fall away piece
by piece, until the whole thing tum
bles in. I noticed on the left hand
wall, a very large, tall piece or column
of stone, that resembled an obelisk in
shape. This column is apparently al
most detached from the wall, except
right at the bottom of it. It seems to
be at least 90 feet high, and about 15 or
20 feet across, by four or five thick. It
looks like it may fall at any moment.
It seems that it would certainly fall if
water gets behind it and freezes in the
winter time. If it ever does fall, it
will effectually put a stop to people
going under the bridge from that side
at least, unless it be cleared away. It
looks like nature is preparing to close
up the entrance. There are other large
boulders on the top of the walls on the
other side of the bridge, that look as if
they could be pushed off. A deep ravine
leads to the bridge from either side, and
the walls almiost without exception are
~cold bare rock, with only here and
there a crevice or ledge where a bush
can get hold or vines grow. It appears
that this bridge, in ages gone by, may
have been twice as wide, on the under
side at least, as it now is. It looks as if

In the summer of 1888, a sore came on the feshy
part of my right leg, not far from the shin bone. It C
continued to increase in size, and eventually formed e
a large ulcer three inches long by two wide. I em
ployeda regular physician, but he gave me no relief.
It was very pinful, and eventually part of the flesh t
to the bone dropped out. After suffering with it e
for six months I was induced to try the CUTcun

less, unable to walk without crutches, and suf- a
fered greatly. In about a week the sore began to c
show signs of improvement, and eventually was
completely healed. Another sore then broke out on r
my instep, but the same treatment soon cured that.
I was indebted solely to the CUricuRA REUEDtES

This deep and narrow ravine runs be
tween these two rock walls for several
hundred feet. If the Obelisk, or column
on the left ever falls, it will very likely
shake down a considerable portion of
the bridge. There is enough weight in
that column to shake a mountain when
it falls, as the base of it is about 100 feet
above the bottom of the ravine, it would
have this distance to fall if it should
break loose before touching bottom.
I would not fancy being in this neigh
borhood when it does fall, if it ever
does. It will cause quite an earthquake
I took these notes while I was under
the bridge that I think ougit to be in

world. It is beyond the power of my
pen to do justice to a description of the
superb and awful grandeur of the Nat
ural Bridge of Virginia.
JOHN R. M.
The Road to Success.
A prosperous merchant, in a recent
conversation, related how his life was
changed by a simple performance of
"I was clerk behind the counter of a
large retail store in Boston, at a small
salary. I had been out of work some
time, and when I secured the position
In Boston I was thankful, and made a
mental promise that I would perform
my duties thoroughly. I had been
working for two days with poor suc
cess; trade had been quiet, and it was
difficult to get any customers. I felt
somewhat down-hearted because my
counter had been idle for some time.
Everything was either too light, or too
dark, and if the color was selected for
his satisfaction, the 'quality' was not
what he desired. I have a quick
temper, and at times during the trans
action I felt that I could strangle the
customer; but I quickly curbed my
temper and went at him tooth and
nail. I felt that my reputation as a
salesman was at stake, and it was a
question of conquer or to be conquered.
At last I made the sale, and with it
came a great satisfaction; but I was
not done with the man yet. I wanted
to sell him more. He said something
about sending his wife around to look
at some dress goods. I promised to
send samples of new patterns as they
arrived. The customer thanked me,
"'It has taken you a long time to
sell me a few goods. Are all of your
customers as bard to please as I?"
"'It takes some customers but a
short time to make their select'ons,
while others wish to go slower; we
are bound to please t bem all,' I an
" 'Does it pay your house to devote
so much time to so small a sale ?' he
"'Yes,' I replied. 'I have taken
pains to give ynu what you want. I
know you will finel t he goods as I say.
You will have cozilidence and come
again, and the next time it will not
take so long.'
"After getting his package he walked
out of the store. In three days I
mailed samples of the new dress goods
to his wife, and the circumstance
passed entirely out of my mind. In
about a month I was transferred to
another counter and received a slight
advance in wages. Much to my as
tonishment, I was taken away from
this department after only a month or
six weeks' trial, and placed in another
position. I could not believe that I
was not giving satisfaction, because
with each change an increase of wages
was made. One morning I was in
formed that Mr. B1. wished to see me.
I went to the office with some surprise
and fear. I was mnore surprised when
I saw sitting beside my employer my
customer of a few months back. He
proved to be the moneyed partner of the
concern, whose oither business interests
kept him away from the dry-goods
store almost entirely, and he was
known to but few of his employees, a!
though he knew that I was a new
man as soon as lhe saw me, and thought
to see what metal I walmade of. That
he was satisfied is proved by his mak
ing me a buyer of the several depat t
ments where I sold goods. My pros
perity began with the tough customer,
and now I thank goodness that I g6t
him, and that I did not show my dis
position to strangle him."

The World of Fashion has been astir

what is called the Directoire styles for
which much popularity is predicted

hat period of French history which

rhe old-time balloon sleeve, another
reminiscence of that epoch, will be
much in vogue this Fall. Many people
use the expressions Directorie, Empire,
Recamier without fully realizing what
these terms signify, and are conse
quently apt to err in their endeavor to
adopt the latest novelties. A careful
perusal of a first-class Fashion Maga
zine like La Mode de Paris Album of
Fashion or La Couturiere will furnish
a satisfactory explanation of the differ
ences between these historical costumes.
These Journals not only illustrate all
modifications of these sundry styles,
buc also give full lengtk descriptions of
the materials to be used with appropri
ate trimmings, and reproduce as well
the latest novelties in millinery and
hat ornaments. The most practical
way of obtaining this information is to
subscribe for these Journals. La Mode

La Conturiere is a:fine home journal
