-The wildest, most weird, most awe
creating scenery in the world is to be
found in Norway. Its immense tiords
stretching far away into the land, sur
rounded sometimes* by precipices that
rise sheer a thousand feet from the wa
ter's edge, at others bordered by a lovely,
smooth, green, shelving beach, with the
cliffs rising up behind, are full of myste
rious enticement to all who know them,
stranger or native. He who has lived
among them would live there always he
who has only seen them would gladly re
urn to them afrair.
On the shore of one of the loveliest of
these fiords far away toward the North
cape, dwelt a hardy farmer, Herald Eric
sou, with his sou and daughtersturdy
Carl and lair Eline. The fiord which
may be called theirs was bounded by al
most wall-like cliffs at every spot, except
where at the bottom of a great rift in the
cliffs, lay the little plot of land that
formed their farm. This was of triangu
lar shape, its base forming the beach, the
two sides being shut in by rocks no man
could climb. ""The three peoplo were
thus cut off from the rest of the world
which they could only reach when neces
sary by means of a stout boat, which lay,
except when in use, on the beach before
Once a year this boat was fitted out with
a mast and sail as well as oars, and Har
old Ericson journeyed in her to the near
est town for the purpose of selling what
they had to sell and purchasing their
winter stores. At the same time he
brought back with him a goodly stock of
news to be told and discussed during the
long, winter nights, but seldom to be de
livered in a hurrv.
On one occasion, however, he had
scarcely stepped ashore and been embrac
ed by Carl and Eline, when he burst out:
"What do you think, children? There
are smugglers along the coast, and, as
sure as I'm alive, I saw their craft in
the offing before I entered the fiord."
"Smugglers!" cried Eline, in alarm.
"Oh, what of them?" laughed Carl.
'They won't interfere with us, for there's
nobody to trade with them in our fiord."
And nobody to be a watch on them,"
replied the old man. ""Therefore I fear
they will visit us, or, at any rate, the cave
where a band of the same sort took refuge
twenty years ago."
"The driftwood cave?" cried Carl, now
really alarmed. Why, if they make their
home there, they will burn every stick of
our winter's firing stored in it."
"That they will and what Ave are to do
I ca scarce tell."
"Oh, if there is the slightest chance of
their coming, wo must set to at once and
bring the wood here," replied Carl. "Let
us get the boat unloadid, and while you
and Eline are carrying the things up to
the house, I will go" off to the cave and
fetch a load of wood."
"Yes that is the best plan," replied the
father, as the three- began hastily to un
load the boat.
This was soon done then Carl, pushing
off, headed for the cave, which lay about
a mile further out at sea, but which had
owing to the currents, to be apuroached
by a course like the letter V.
The first part of Carl's course carried
him right across the fiord to a cluster of
rocky islands. His next would bring
him direct to the mouth of the cave.
"Father," said Eline, as she saw Carl
disappear among the islands, "what did
the old smugglers do with their craft when
they lodged "in the cave? There is no
sale place for it about there."
"Oh, they were clever ones, those
smugglers," replied the old man. "They
unshipped the bowsprit and mast, and
run their schooner right into the cave it
self. You know it is like a dock in there
for nearly a hundred feet from the en
"Yes, yes," replied Eline "and perhaps
these meji you heard of mav be as clever
and But look, father! look raising her
voice almost to a scream"there is a
schooner at the mouth of the cave this
"Fore heaven you are right, child re
plied the father, after a moment's look.
I is the smuggling schooner. And see!
eae! they are letting down their masts as
if they were on hinges. Ah the clever
"But, father, see! there ccmes Carl, clear
of the islands, and making straight for
the cave. He does not seem to see them,
andoh, father, he will run right into
"II fear he will, child." replied
the old man, nervously. And look
now there is nothing of them to seethey
have drawn clear into the cave. What is
to be done?"
"The ledge! the ledge above the cave
I know a path to reach it! If I get there
in time I might make him see me and
warn him off.
Ah, me, my legs are not so swift nor
my body so light as yours, Eline,"
groaned the old man. Fly then,fly,andproduction
save your brother if you can for'these
men would shed his blood as readily as
they would drink if thirsty."
Scarcely waiting to hear his final words
Eline started off at a run, and soon o-ained
the foot of the cliffs. Then, by a path
which seemed rather for a rabbit or a hare
than a human being, she began to ascend
the face of the cliffs in a sort of a diagonal
line, and her father, watching her, sawlands
her swift, flying figure grow less and less,
till at last it baited on the ledge just over
Then without a moment's delay, she
began a series of gestures, by which she
hoped to attract Carl's attention teut he
was far too busy with his boat to think
of looking up where she stood.
"Oh, he will not see me!he is lost!"
she cried, in despair, as she let her hands
fall to her side.
Even as she spoke he stooped and took
from the bottom of the boat a horn that
always lay there, and was used as a sig
nal. With it his father and he also had
been used to blow a great bla9t when
neariDg the cave, so as to frighten out of
it many things that made it "their home.
"Mercy on us! he is about to sound the
horn!" she cried. "And I cannot make
him hear me! All is lost!"
The voice of the horn, strong and sweet
and full, answered her, and was echoed
i nd re-echoed again and again from cliff
"Carl! Carl! for God's sake do not go
near the cave!" she screamed.
Her voice was heard by him, but he
fancied it the scream of some bird.
Then he put the horn" to his mouth and
blew another sonorous blast, even stron-
ger than at first.
"Carl! Carl!" she cried, hoarsly.
"Why will you not hear me, or look at
me? Oh, Carl, brother Carl, look up!
But he took no notice of her, and was
about to sound a third time, when with a
tearing, groaning noise, the whole ledge
where she stood slipped away from under
her, and slid rather than dashed down
into the sea.
Falling with it, sho received no hurt,
but whea it suddenly ceased to move she
was flung as if from a catapult right out
upon the surface of the fiord.
Of course she sank senseless and like a
stone but as she rose again Carl and his
boat shot near, and just as she was about
to sink, his hand grasped a band of her
floating hair, and drew her towards him.
Nejct moment his atrong arms had lifted
her into the boat, while from his lips es
caped the cry
"Good heavens! it is Eline!"
At his words she opened her eyes and
half rose up.
"Oh, is it you, Carl! Flyfly!"she cried.
"The cave is full of smugglers, and they
will kill you if they think you have found
out their hiding-place! Fly fly!"
"Smugglers in the cave!" cried Carl.
"Then may God have mercy on their
souls! See, the fallen cliff has shutthem
in forever, and they are buried alivw"
Eline started up yet mor^, and looking
towards the cave saw that where its
mouth had been was now a round-topped
hill formed of rocks and earth, and so
large that no human hands might remove
it for years.
"Oh, it is horrible! horrible! Can they
not be saved?" she cried.
"There is no salvation for them in this
world," replied Carl, solemnly, as he took
the oars and began to row towards the
beach, where stood their father, straining
his eyes to watch their every movements
When they reached the beach, and he
found they were both safe, though Eline a
little shaken,he wept tears of joy again and
again. Then the three went up to their
home, and there knelt down and gave
thanks ior their escape, at the same time
praying for mercy for the poor wretches
who had found a living grave.
Years after, when the sea had done its
work, and washed away the hill of loose
earth that closed the cave, Carl and Eline
ventured to visit it. The sight they saw
was enough to freeze the blood.
Here and there, about the habitable
part ot the cave lay the bodies of the men
as they had died. They were in all im
aginable attitudes of agony, despair, and
rage, and in one or two cases it was evi
dent they had fought and slain each
Over all their bodies was a white coat
ing, like polished marble, formed by the
dripping from the ioof: and a fancilul
person might easily imagine them to be
the magnificent but horrifying products
of a sculptor's chisel rather than the figures
of real men buried alive.

The Great Limestone
Belt of Kansas.
The Attractive Region of the
By Major fl. Inman.
The "Great Central Plains" area geograph
ical feature of the State of Kausas. Covered
with a remarkably nutritious vegetation, for
centuries they were an immense pasturage for
countless herds of Buffalo, antelope and other
ruminating animals, 'Whose habitat was the
far-stretching green prairies that to-day form
one of the most beautiful agricultural portions
of the Mississippi Valley. Less than ten years
ago this region was believed, by the mass of
the people in the East, to be an unprofitable
desert, bnt it is now the acknowledged garden
of the continent This truly magnificent coun
try can claim the most luxuriant soil of all the
"Great West," and a climate that approaches
perfection, at least. Dr. B. E. Fryer, one of
"the most eminent surgeons in the Army, and
who was stationed for years at Fort Harker,
four miles from the Town of Ellsworth, de
clared this to be the most perfect climate in
the wo.ld." The whole countrv is traversed
by a series of constant streams, sweet and
wholesome springs and spring-fed pools. De
licious water is also always obtained in wells
by digging, at easily-accessible depths. It is
already conceded that the United States is rap
idly becoming the granary of the world, par
ticularly in the production of wheat. Kansas
an Empire in itself, is taking the lead in the
culture of this cereal, and in a short time will
be acknowledged queen of all the Sates in the
of this great staple The State
especially her peculiarly wonderful fertile cen
tral area, comprised ir what is now known as
the "limestone belt," under the test of only a
few years, has proved to the world the im
mense average its soil is capable of. Each
year increases the limit of the wheat-belt, as
the frontier is pushed toward the mountains,
within which are found the greatest possibili
It is a remarkable fact that nearly all the
of the Kansas Pacific Railway are inmanagement
cluded in the limestone regiou under consider
ation, and the south of this limit, in that di
rection, it ceases altogether, and the country
presents another geological formation,the soil
of which is very sandy, and which, though at
present, from fullness of its very primitivenes*
is capable of producing good crops in seasons
of abundant rainfall, lacks the inherent quali
ties of self fertilization, and must rapidly dete
riorate. In this particutar the Smoky Hill Val
ley is immensely superior to the arenacious
lands of the region south, which is drained by
the Arkansas and tributary streams. It is well
known by every farmer that lime, in some of
its combinations, constitutes the essential in
gredient in all the more valuable grains and
grasses. Its presence in the soil is consequent
ly to be considered as a condition of fertility.
It also acts as a constitutional ameliorant, of
much power, and, when mixed with or under
lying tough or viscid clay, it renders them fri
able and consequently more susceptible to the
action of atmospheric forces. Soil in which
there is a due admixture of calcareous matter,
is not so liable to be injured or rendered plas
tic by an excess of moisture while under crop.
The quality of the wheat raised in this great
limestone belt" is conceded, in all markets,
to be the finest grade known. It produces the
familiar brands of so-called Southern flour,
for which St. Louis is justly celebrated. This
is easily accounted for, from the fact thai the
soil in which the wheat is grown possesses a
due admixture of calcareous matter, which
has a tendency to make the hull of the grain
much thinner, and the farina itself in much
greater quantity, andjn richer quality, than in
gram grown on the lands which exhibit a de
ficiency of this earth. All our millers will tes-
tify to the peculiar flour-making properties of
our wheat, in this essential, surpassing that
raised in other sections, and it is attributed
entirely to the factwhich the analysis of the
soil confirmsthat the so-called 'limestone
belt" posses*es all the requisites of the best
wheat land in the world. Sand it is well
known, is injurious when it enters tco largely
into the composition of cultivated soils in
thor words, it is useless beyoud a certain pro.
ortion. That the "limestone belt," or "won
wheat region of Central Kansas," as it
is sometimes called, has'the amount of silex
or silicathe basis of sandfixed In the prop
er proportion, is evident, from the fact that It
requires peculiar conditions to "lodge" the
grain in the field, even after the most terrific
showers. Considering tho question of the rel
ative fertility, particularly In its connection
with wheat culture, present richness of soil
and endurance must enter as essential ele
ments of success, and the capacity of the self
fertilization of the land, an ingredient not to
be over-looked. The latter quality a limestone
region alone can possess, as only a limited
knowledge of agrilcultural chemistry clearly
demonstrates. Viewing the subject of wheat
culture, then, in all its aspects, so far as Kan
sas is concerned, and inspection of the Smoky
Hill Valley, and the arenaceous region south,
coupled with a fair idea of what the culture of
wheat requires the conclusion can lead only
in one directionto the infinitely superior ad
vantage of the "limestone belt."
Prospectively, from purely phvslcal cause,
this great inland region must reach the posi
tian of one of the richest agricultural portions
of the United States. Only a very few years
agonot a decadehusbandry here was
purely tentative. From absolutely no dew,
eight years ago, this region is as favored in
that particular as any that can be named.
From lying outside of the "rain belt," so
termed, this reign has had to be "taken in."
Th quantity of water in the streams has aug
mented, springs have burst forth where none
existed before -in short, just the converse of
that meteorological phenomenon has been
evolved here, under the march of civilization,
which takes in a heavily-timbered country
under the same social conditions.
.The following statistics of the rainfall clear
ly prove the accuracy of the foregoing state

"Radix," in one of his recent New York let
ters, makes a good point apropos of life insur
ance investigations and troubles generally, by
calling attention to the fallacy of judging of
the reliability of companies according to their
bulk. Many such institutions seek to dazzle
the public eye by printing their gross assets
in the heaviest type, and by laying great
stress upon the nominal millions under their
control to win confidence and prevent any
close analysis of the whole statement. He
points out the plain, but often forgotten fact,
that even conceding the equally good quality
of the assets of two companies, it is not ne
cessarily the one with the most millions which
is safest for the policy holder, but the one
whose net surplus bears the largest ratio to its
whole proper tv. Judged by this sound and
searching principle "Radix" finds the vEtna
Life Insurance Company, of Hartford, to be
one of the strongest, if not the very stronget,
institution of the kind in the couutrv. With
a little over twentv-four millions of assets, it
has about four and a quarter millions of clear
surplus. The special comThission appointed by
the Legislature of Connecticut a year ago, to
investigate all the life insurance companies of
that State, say of the ^Btna that it is *not only
solvent, but financially sound, and under the
