Nature's Greatest Achievment In
Easy Reach From Los Angeles-
Pleasures of an Old-Pnaliloned Stage
Hide Through 1'lne Forests and
Over Ituicted Divides Prehis
toric CllffandCave Dwelling.
With nil tlio writers and paint cm
linvu dune to attract the attention of
tho world io tho marvols of tho Gruntl
Canyon of tho Color.uln, it is astonish
itijr that so four peoplo in Suiithcru
l California can suy they Imvo seen it.
il'uoplu go tho same monotonous round
()ft,0 beadier and nioiiulftin suuiniur
after stiininer, nud never seem to real
ize that the most Stupendous thing of
its kind on God's green earth Is within
easy reach , and that no great expense,
difficulty or hardship attends the
join ney. From Los Angeles tho Grand
Canyon Is reached far more easily
than Is the Yosomito, and accommoda
tion may ho had at much moro reason
Parties of excursionists, under the
ehargo of a competent courier, go
over the road every little while, and
there is absolutely untiling to deter
the beauty-lover from experiencing
one of the keenest delights of a life
time. With one of those merciful streaks
of consideration for the traveling pub
lie that is occasionally displayed iu the
management of a railroad, the depart
ure from Los Angeles of the Santa Fe
overland, is so timed that the only
Btrotcb of'rcM desert obctwejiuJiere
and the Grand Canyon is traversed
during the night. Ky sunrise tho
next morning the train is winding In
and out through tho p.uk-llko glades
of the great pine forests which cover
the sin Francisco plateau. Tho heat
nud dust of tho valley Imvo been left
behind, and tho morning air, arjiuatie
as only the breezo which blows through
a plue forest cau be, is as crisp, nud
bracing as a clear day iu tho highlands
Uieakfast is aetveil at Williams, and
at !: 15 the train pulls into Flagstaff,
tliu biisk and busy capital of Coconino
county, Arizona. Flagstaff Itself
would not be a bad place for a sum
mer outing, for it stands in Ihu middle
of the great Sau Francisco plateau, ul
nu altitude of (!'J35 feet above the sea.
Good hotels give uji-to-dato accommo
dations to tourists and hcalth-eeekcrs,
and places of Interest are. never lack
ing. This breezy wcstei n town, sprung
up like a mushroom iu tho night,
stands iu tho heart of prehistoric
America, and enough relies and au
cient ruins to drive an archaeologist
wild with delight lie within a few
miles drive. In Walnut Canyon, only
eight miles away, is the largest village
of ancient cliff dwellings on tho whole
plateau. The canyon itself is small,
notrmoro than live hundred feet deep
aud only three aaa long, but the
steep, terraced walls of limestono are
honeycombed with these strnngo habi
tations, many of which are stilt in an
excellent state of preservation. At
about the same distauco north of Flag
ntnfT, and not moro than half a mile
( in tho regular stage road to tho
i mid Canyon, are tho desertod dwell
ings of thoso mysterious relatives of
tho cliff dwellers, tho cave people.
Thcso caves show signs of having onco
been the vent holes of a volcand that
has been extinct for countless genera
tions, aud are upon tho summit aud
sides of a jagged chasm that was once
a liory crater.
Travelers bound for tho Grand Can
you seldom havo moro thau one nf
teruoou to glyo to Flagstaff and its
surrounding attractions. It Is impos
sible to push directly on, for the train
docs not get In uutil 9:15 a. m., and
tuostago leaves at 7 oclock sharp.
Even then it takes some calculation to
mnko eoiiiiecllnnsv which will leave
only the gap of' a day and night, for
the stage Uf the .Granu Canyon runs
only three times rJ meek. The early
start from Flagstaff gives the cream
of tlio morning for the Hrst hourj of
tho journey. To people who enjoy
dashing along behind spirited horses
through the keonsparkllngi air ami
over a hard, smooth road.' the pros
pect of a railroad Hp, the Grand Can
yon brings but .littlo pleasure. If
ever a stage road should survive, to
bring memories of the merry eoaehiuir
days of old, It ts.'thl line betweeu
Flagstaff and the Graud Canyon. For
the first half-day the road is like a
well-kept boulevard through a mag
uilieentpaik. Ginut pines sough over
head and the tremulous leaves of the
aspen quiver in the crisp morning
breezo. The ground is like a carpet
vdtet, absolutely freo from under
blush, and the vistas stretching on
every side seem to have liemi planned
by some titanic hode.tpe gardner.
Emerging from the trees, the road
unrolls like a ribbon around the Hank
of tho noble San Francisco peaks, tow
el ing up into the blue in all their mas
sive, snow' grandeur, Down again to
llio level, and impudent little prairie
dogs sit up on end besides their dwell
ings and make opprobrious remarks
about the intruders who disturb their
peaceful seclusion -and add insult to
injury by taking pot slioM at them.
Another rise, and froin llin top of a
small divide the shimmering, rosy
hues of the Painted' Desert appear iu
the northeast, a twenty-iuito strength
of melting, 'mysterious color.
Cedar Haucli and its log houso are
leached about luncheon J time, and as
It is also limn, for a wallet rTSlidrses
for the (pieer specimen of petrified
wood which abound iu thcso forests.
After the noon hour the serious busi
ness of gelling there is taken up again,
aud tho stage swings into the Coco
uino Forest, Fiom "that time until
the close of the da-, tlio charm of tlio
journey deepens nith every mile.
Partings among the trees are tantal
izing glimpses of gorgeous cliffs, glow
ing with the color which is optnslicd
over everything on this enchanted
mesa. Through rugged defiles among
these cliffs, p.istgiim, volcanic moun
tains of cinder and slag; mer great
sti etches of sheep and cattle range;
again into the pine forest, tlio road un
winds new beauties with every furlong
through all the long day. In spite of
the journey of seventy miles, no oue is
worn out, not even the hor.se, for
there have been thiee relays at inter
vals of about twenty miles.
After a sharp desccut iuto a pictur
esque littio gorge, the stage pulls up
at Camp Thurbur, a comfortable per
manent, where it Is possiblo to obtain
a hearty meal and a good bed. It is a
village of tents, but each tent is floored
and furnished like tho, quarters of a
fleld-ofllcer, so there is littlo chance
for roughing it iu any way.
Here at Camp Thurbur are well
trained saddle-horses, donkeys and
guides for exploring tho Grand Can
you. The length of tlmo necessary to
see it Is limited cutlrely to tho number
.of hours or days at tho disposal Of the
visitor. It is possible to return by
tho stage next day, and still have a
recollection that will be tho glory of a
lifetime; it Is possiblo to stay alt sum
mer and still leave tho details unex
plored. Tho Grand Canyon is unique
in the world, and nil that h as been
written and said about it leaves but
tho vaguest idea of its grandeur.
With dramatic cunning, Naturo lias
veiled tho approach to this, her most
stupendous achlovmcut, so it shall
strike tho bowlldered senses as a com
plete surprise. No better description
of this effect could bo given than that
of C. A. Uiggius, who has painted tho
canyon iu words even as BJorau has
depicted It upou his glowing canvasses.
In all tho journey nothing has
been encountorod that could prepare
the mind for transcendent scenery.
Save that In the last half-mile two or
thre.i glimpses of what were guessed
to bo pinkish cliffs far to right ami
left were shadowed faintly through
the, trees. And eertaiuly there Is
nothing that portends the heroic in
the sylvan scene where at last the
traveler quits the stage. Small herb
age and Mowers of every hue grow at
the foot of the pines, among pretty
rock fragments of variegated color.
Save for a single crag, whose gray
nest barely tops the northward slope
of the glen, a hundred yards away,
there is no hint of any presence for
eign to the peaceful heir of a wood
land glade, denizened by birds. and
squirrels, innocent even of the minor
of such a tiling as the Grand 'Canyon.
The visitor, smitten with a sudden fear
of disappointment iu store, strides
eagerly up the slope to piiMho. vaunted
Canyon to the test. Without au in
stant's warning ho finds himself upon
Ihe verge of an unearthly spectacle
that stretches beneath his feet to the
far lioriison. blolld Indeed Is ho if
he can front that awtul scene without
quaking knee or tremulous breath.
An inferno, swathed in soft celes
tial fires; a whole chaotic underworld,
just emptied of primeval Hoods and
waiting for a now creative woild;a
boiling, tenible thing, unflinchingly
real, yet spectral as a dream, eluding
all sense of perspective or dimension,
outstretching the faculty of measure
ment, overlapping tho i fines of defi
nite npprehensioi. The beholder Is
at lirst unimpressed by any detail; he
is overwhelmed by the ensemble of a
stupendous panorama, a thousand
square miles iu extent, that lies wholly
beneath the ce, as if he stood upon a
mouutain peak instead of the level

hmenlready siiiitied their intentions
to make exhibits.
Thorield sports this year will be im
mense. There will be no less than six
ball clubs which wilt enter the tourna
ment and the lovers of base-ball will
see some the finest exhibition of the
nitioual game ever played in the
Rocky Mount tins.
The bicycle races will be ' greater
just liuil orders for ten entry' bl.tn
from Denver and a dozen from Pueblo
with nnnierous lettprs from other
points from bicycle riders saying that
they w ould attend.

their experiment at the fair.
Everybody should attend the Terri

i riety of tastes, will have opportunity
to gratify them.
