ment of the Grand Arm; at
Special by the CalUornia Associated Press.
Butte (Mont.), April 23.— J. M. Donald
ton, the Park-street jeweler, whose place
was entered and robbed of $0000 or 87000
worth of jewelry three weeks ago, received
a telegram irom Chief of Police Metcalf of
Ogden yesterday, announcing the capture
of Salmon, one of the suspected parties, in
that city, and the recovery of a number of
watches, thirty chains, twelve watch
charms and a number of diamond rings
taken the ni-Tlit of the robbery. Mr. Don
aldson secured the services of Curly Khodes,
a well-known detective, and put the case in
his hands. Rhodes went quietly to
work on the case, and forwarded telegrams
to points likely to be visited by the thieves
for the purpose of disposing of their stolen
jewelry, He wrote letters to the authorities
of the smaller towns and kept seduously nt
work. Within the past few days Detective
Rhodes received information that induced
him to believe that the fugitive thieves were
heading for Ogden. He accordingly wired
a description of the goods and supposed
thieves to the Chief of Polioe, and re
quested him to be on the lookout for them.
Yesterday he was rewarded by receiving a
telegram from Ogde_n announcing the
capture of Salmon and the recovery of
about half the jewelry. The Sheriff left
for Ogden to-day to take Salmon into
custody and bring him back.

THE ISLAND OF MARTINIQUE.
On the Surface It Is harm Inr. But It
Has Frightful Drawbacks.
Viewed on the surface, all is bright and
full of beauty, grace and color in Martinique
scenery; but closer Inspection reveals a
formidable seamy side. The forests, with
their prodigal growth, their exquisite ar
boreal forms, their brilliant flora, their gor
geous birds and butterflies, are. to use a
figure, planted full of the deadliest man
traps and spring-guns. The fearful serpent
known as the "ferde lance" is the sovereign
of these shades. The poison he secretes
produces the most horrible effects. The
victim of his fangs suffers swift mortifica
tion. His tissues lose coherence and dis
solve—strange mystery— into the semblance
of decayed vegetation ; into imitations of
those many hued fungoid growths which
abound in the habitat of the venomous
reptile. It the fang has touched a vein there
is no hope, and it seems that the majority
of such wounds prove mortal. So in
fested is the island by this snake that
travel after nightfall is Impossible, even in
the outskirts of St. Pierre, for the "fer
de lance prefers the darkness for his
excursions, and he haunts the highways.
Ills deadly and übiquitous presence, more
over, has hitherto prevented any thorough
scientific exploration of the Island. The
deadly creature is too well concealed by
his skin-markings, which make it impossible
for any but an expert to distinguish him
from the ground or the tree roots or the
fallen logs about which he lurks; and to go
into the Martinique woods alone Is, for the
stranger, to court one of the most dreadful
of deaths. Nor is the "fer de lance" tho
only drawback to life in the tropics. Num
bers of tempting fruits and brilliantly
colored fishes are poisonous. Even the
sparkling mountain water cannot be drunk
without an infusion of spirit, if the drinker
be heated. There is a beautiful fruit called
the "manchineel apple," which is deadly.
There are trees to lie under which is most
dangerous. In fact nobody ever thinks of
lying on the . grass at Martinique, for it
swarms with insect pests. There are im
mense hairy spiders outside of the towns
not less venomous than tho tarantula. In
the houses are found equally venomous
spiders. There are three kinds of bitlna
ants, all very venomous; roaches as big as
mice, who eat everything eatable and defile
what defies their horny mandibles: mos
quitoes, and, last but not least, the centi
pede. Mr. Hearn's description of this re
pulsive creature is realistic enough to make
one's flesh creep.— Y. Tribune.

T-jTALERMO .(Sicily). March 18. 1890.-
I )?-* f " ere neverjeame to me a sweeter or
ii^^S more perfect sleep than that one
upon the rough benches of the half-ruined
Casadegli Englesi, on the desolate plateau
just beneath the great cone at Etna. Bal
bino, friend and guide, said he would
awaken me betimes, and he did. It was a
singular feeling to realize where the night
had been spent, as Balbino assured me no
one had ever been known to pass an entire
night at thcwelrd retreat and to remember
how, if the death-dealing volcano had once
hiccoughed in those hours, our Italian and
American anatomies would have blend
ed with the fused elements and floated down
to the cities and the sea, in after years to
bo worked over and sold as lava relics to
coming generations of tourists.
There was a bright glow within the hut,
and a still more welcome aroma of cooking
food, for one's appetilo is ravenous in these
crisp upper regions. Balbino had brewed
a pot of black coffee, roasted eggs in the
ashes beneath, and with our canteens of
wine and water, our fowl and bread— com
posite of the flour of wheat, corn and chest
nuts—had spread a toothsome repast upon
two huge blocks of lava. It was 2 o'clock
in the morning when we had finished this,
adjusting our heavy woolen blankets like
knotted tunics, and after "banking" the lit
tle fire for use on our return, stepped out
into the cold and stinging air.
"The guides take the straneiro from the
Casa to the summit in an hour," said Bal
bino. "But that," with a reproachful tone,
"ese maledetto. They do that to com
pletely exhaust them and add greater value
to their pretentious services. We will go,
a suo bell' agio, leisurely, like gentlemen,
in two. The nlnfei (water lilies' are peep
ing from the sky."
By water lilies the poetical Balbino meant
the stars. It was dark— very dark—with
out But the stars were more than shin
ing. They glowed, each like a topaz bead
pendant from a canopy of velvet. So near
they seemed, the impulse almost came to
lift one's staff In effort to touch them.
Against the side-arc of such a sky
THE BLACK peak
Set like a wall of onyx to bo crashed
against at a step's advance.
Balbino marched with the step of a vet
eran across the rough plateau of perhaps
three-quarters of a mile to the base of the
cone. Out eyes soon became accustomed to
the darkness, and by my guide taking in his
disengaged hand one end of my staff 1 was
able to follow very comfortably. I asked
him why he had not provided torches, aud
he told me they were only a hindrance to
the practical guide, as the light blinded one,
save where standing, and destroyed the ef
fect of the starlight.
"See, there is the proof," he shortly
added. "There are strangers, guides and
torcher lost in the Bosco. The party is try
ing to reach Etna for the sunrise. They
will not come so far as the Casa."
Turning 1 saw far down the mountain a
hall-dozen flashes like bright fire-flies, now
swaying and waving, now lost behind the
mazes of oak, chestnut and ilex, aud again
leaping into view. They added a weird
feeling of pursuit as we pushed on, not
without many a stumble and an occasional
fall. Before leaving the Casa we had
wound thongs of kid-akin about our
trousers at the ankles. My companion
wore shoes; but 1 had a pair of honestly
made American boots, with legs reach
ing nearly to the knees, and the
soles well filled with stout hob nails, an
invaluable aid in climbing I'ico in the
Azores a few mouths before. Balbino had
eyed these enviously, while binding a pair
of leather leggins around the tops of his
shots. Before we could have crossed the
plateau the ashes, grit, and loose scoriae
would have cut to the flesh through one's
stockings without this protection. Half
way across the rock-strewn plain we came
upon traces of snow, and soon, ice, snow aud
disintegrated lava in large piles, where,
after the wind had fiercely tossed it about,
it had been banked in most fantastic forms.
Vie had trouble in some of these. They
were as slippery as shot. We would climb
upon our hands and knees over some sharp
hump of lava and fall of solid footing on the
other side, frequently sliding and crunching
out of our way down startling declivities,
only to land waist-deep in some of the
shelly pockets, or to be brought up with
thud and thump against some solid lava
wall beyond. But in this wise, and with
out serious discomfiture or mishap, we
crossed the billowy masses and reached the
base of the final cone. To my eyes it
seemed a vast piecipice, interminable in
height, absolutely insurmountable. And
here the real struggle began. I never had
a more thorough admiration for physical
agility than the thin little Sicilian now
compelled. It seemed that the wiry fellow
had wings for unseen use.'
A PERILOUS CLIMB.
Uncoiling a slender leash, woven of hair
and much resembling a lariat, and leaving
me in possession of one end below, he would
appear to leap from point to point in the
darkness above until the line was taut,
when with endless repetitions of soothing
and reassuring "Agevolmeute!"— "Gentii
mentel ' ("easily I-gentlyl") he would half
draw me to his own safe station of ascent.
Now and then we would find a few yards of
almost level space. Again, the course
would wind about and between jagged
curling fringes of lava, set there like con
volutions of wave-crests whirled upon end
and instantly cougealcd. But everywhere
were cinders, grit, ice, snow, needle-pointed
spears of lava, powdered sulphur, ashes.
Pitfalls, ana worse than all, the danger of
dislodging the rocking masses above us.
On several occasions we had barely
passed, and pushed our weight from treach
erous scales of mingled snow and scoria;
when they cracked away and went crum
bling behind, frequently dislodging other
crusts and projections, when a combined
crash and thundering Into the darkness
would follow At these times my own
bravery would forsake me. 1 am afraid, and
I would be ? l blnu for 'ndulgio and rest.
With the utmost suavity the little old roll
of bones always acceded ; and, far above
me, while my knees beat the cinders from
5 1 , J trousers, and my , chattering teeth rat
tled like castanets, chirp.as a canary in the

Perhaps an hour and a half was consumed
in this manner of climbing, when? on Being

ugly slope I stood on my feet beside Balbi

uttered the one word "Trionfot 1" I saw the
stars beyond a jagged mass of black, and
was conscious that we were at last at the
very crater', edge. After groping about
with the greatest caution for a little. Ibi

DARKEST HOUR BEFORE DAWN
Innumerable times In my life 1 1,. read
heard or thought the old saving about the

However familiar one may be with cei

s a one tune in each individual^ ".Chen
individual facts sweep into and possess the
remotest territories of realization !n that
way this familiar truism came to me for the
first time, and for all time, at the edge *of
Etna's crater. The atmosphere was per
fectly clear, rare and crisp. The stars were

firmament. Balbino's practiced eye com
prebended all this in a material sense, and
be said we had now but a little time to
wait. But that little time seemed very long.
Fortunately no wind was blowing, but it
was bitterly cold ; and the cold seemed to
come in waves, each more Intense than the
preceding one. Intermittent with these
were apparent pulsations of warm air bear
ing an odor as of asafetida. These were the
exhalations of Etna.
Though we were.now within a few feet of
11,000 feet above the sea-level I did not ex
perience that difficulty in breathing which
many travelers lay great stress upon, al
though an actual condition of weakness and
weariness was continually contended
against. The most marked blended phys
ical and mental experience in these ex
treme altitudes is, I think, an almost uncon
trollable impulse to step off and down to
the greatest depths below, coupled with a
dim sort of fancy that one is ready-winged
for such descent, and even steady-headed
Balbino had, or pretended to have any
number of authentic reminiscences where
unfortunate persons, unable to control sim
ilar fatal impulses, had been dashed to
pieces upon the lava rocks below.
But even while he was relating these the
density of the darkness had given war
Through the murky gray the horizon line
of the lonian sea and the sky could bo
faintly traced. We left our llttliPtehelter
and found solid footing in the crust of the
crater's edge, where we could cling tightly
to the flinty lobes, angles and ridges
which some former action of the boil
ing lava had provided. Hardly was
this done before the stars were swept
from sight aud the entire sky had
changed to a dark opaline hue. Then, as
the first faint shimmeriugs of red quivered
above the sea, as if to sweep the last vestige
of night from the earth's face, came such a
blast of piercing wind as hurled showers of
lava-grit whistling before it, tore great
crusts of ice and lava from their places,
and caused us to cling to each other and
the serrated cone-edge for our very lives.
It passed as quickly as it came, roaring
across the Bosco toward Palermo. When
we looked again.
TUE EASTERN' SKY WAS AFLAME.
The lonian Sea dimpled and rippled by the
softer breezes of lesser altitude, a mass of
tremulous purple: and the crests of the
Calabrian Mountains of lower Italy seemed
emitting a sinuous stream of liquid fire.
"Yivo-acuto!" almost yelled Balbino, as
he lifted me bodily from my feet and
whirled me squarely about so that I faced
the west. "This is the momento emineutis
And so it was " the supreme moment."
As 1 was whirled about, the last glimpse
was of the first glories of the grandest sun
rise human eyes can behold. The next in
stant my eyes rested upon equally as .grand
a scene, a curious and almost sublime effect
in light and shade; probably one nowhere
else visible upon the globe, owing to the
non-existence elsewhere of like combined
conditions of altitude, contour and al
most limitless expanse of panoramic back
ground. To make this clear to the reader,
it must be remembered that Etna, standing
near the center of tne eastern shore of the
island of Sicily, rises from a base, fully GO
miles in diameter, gradually and almost un
brokenly to the tremendous altitude in its
crater of practically 11,000 feet. The first
rays of the rising sun strike horizontally
athwart this, but all is darkness beyond,
Half way across Sicily is thrown a shadow
worth a year's travel to see. Tender
mists of gray and pearl and blue in count
ies valleys blend with this mighty sable
whig, transforming it to a purple as ex
quisite as the untouched film of the grape.
To its almost measureless point its edites
are as clearly defined as those of a velvet
fabric stretched upon a bod of green, and
no artist's brush will ever reveal such liquid
streams of rose fading to flushing green, as,
leaping and flashing along Its lines, startle
and amaze as though one had bean granted
a vision of light for an instant possessing
the essence ol life itself 1
From this brief and entrancing spectacle,
one involuntarily turns to the contempla
tion ol the majestic uyclorama spread out to
view. Where else cau such a mighty reach
ul vision be found? There is nothing to iv.
tercepl the sight. Three seas, the Italian.
louian and the African, blend with the hor
izon, save where, on the west, mora than 100
miles away, stand the heigiits;behiud Paler
mo, and where, to the northeast, rise the
Apuliau mountains in tiie narrow strip
forming Southern Italy. With your glass
you can see across the Isles ol Lipari to the
eternal fires of Stromboli, the ancients' en
trance to purgatory; while, over 125 miles to
the south, are discerned the outlines of
-Malta, where Calypso enslaved Odysseus,
St. Paul was shipwrecked aud the British
Empire, behind the most tremendous ram
parts of our time, dominates the Mediter
ranean and holds the golden key to all the
A MAGNIFICENT VIEW.
Nearer the glistening roofs of more than
100 cities and villages shimmer in the morn
ing sunlight, among the greatest of which
are Aci, Keall, Giarre, Masslna, Kandazzo,
Broute, Aderno, Paterno and classic Ca
tania and Syracuse. Nearer still the vast
rim of flowers, olive groves and vineyards.
Above this the lesser but still stupendous
circle of green, where stand the mas
sive oak, chestnut and ilex trees.
Then desolation complete, horrid, hate
ful, unspeakable. From one's feet
clearly traced to the farthest base
edge, lead great fuirows of purply black,
where the livid rivers ran, interspersed with
lesser volcanic— but specks from where we
stand— and awful gulfs miles in width
hundreds of feet In depth and so indescri
bably blasted, cursed and lifeless that even
silence crouches shuddering! v in their form
less and hideous depths. This, the faintest
hint of what one sees. No one can come
with the power to reveal even this beggarly
proportion ot what is felt.
But here is the crater and its ragged rim.
It is sullen, inactive now. Hundreds of
lantastic, craggy, jagged masses stand upon
its smoother lower crust, reaching sprawl
ingly In every direction with great lava
claws. Everywhere, describing the most
curious angles and curves, run slender seams
with lips of green aud yellow,
where the sulphuric breath has
left Its stain and poison. Shim
mering waves of air, with now and then a
ghostly thread of steam, rise from these
seams. These, with a ceaseless, tremulous
vibration which would not take long to ef
fect genuine seasickness, are all that tell
of the infernal powers beneath. Bal
bino, shrugging his shoulders, and re
marking, "It is shamming, like a
bad woman!" descended into tho pit
ran about upon the crust, broke
off relics to take away, and punched the
seams savagely with his pike to illustrate
his bravery aud contempt. Then, oue last
look at so vast and yet so little a portion of
our good old earth; the descent and meeting
of the belated travelers, who glared at us for
our own better luok; another meal at tho
wretched Ca»a, where it seemed we had
been long years before; and then a light
some step out and down into the world of
sunshine, verdure aud song; while, far and
near, waking a myriad echoes in wooded
gorge and glen, there came to us, mingled
with tuneful songs of rivulets and birds,
the clear and mellow notes of shepherds
pipes, as with matin melodies their flocks
were led up lower Etna's verdant sides.
