overlooking six mtles of the Wllley Valley,
which, with its mighty bead, and walled In
by Impending mountains, jooks like some
amphitheatre of the Titans. Of course It
will be conceded that the views from tne
cars going up Mount Washington are on a
yet grander scale; but the latter llue does
not strike one as a real railroad. Theengtne
pushes the car up, from behind; and the
passengers, who are all seated to face the
mountain, see no motive power, aud there
is nodust or cinders to suggest the presence
of the engine. Tne motion Is so slosr?less

from the base (Ammonoosuc Station) to the
summit Is a fraction under three miles by
tbe railroad, and the time occupied in the
ascent Is 1# hours; the descent Is made In
less time. The average grade Is 1,300 feet to
the mile, and the maximum grale Is l.wo
feet to the mile. There are nine curves to
the line, and four short stoppages are m vie
at water-stations in the ascent. In the eight
years tnat the road has been run there has
been no accident resulting In the loss of ilfe,
though two or three of the raiiroa 1 workmen
have been killed In attempting to slidedown
the rails on boards fitted with rude iron run
ners to the center-rail, and regulated by a
brake of like simple construction. Notwlth
standing the dangers of a descent la this way
it seems to have a great fascination for some,
and in our accent we met several per?ons
coming down on tnese sleds. As we approach
ed they stopped their odd vehicles aud d?
tacbed tberu from tbe track; resuming their
downward fltgbt when we had passel. Tney
are all right "while the breaching holds,"
but when that gives out it Is the last of ear.h

miles on these sleds has been made in 4^
minutes, cr nearly the b ghest ra< 'road spee i,
and the time usually occupied, including the
"turnouts" for trains to pass, is less than 10
minutes. Though the railroad has b*en
worked with entire safety to the passengers,
it has not thus far proved a pecuniary sue

WINTER OH MOUNT washington.
An interesting point to all visitors here Is
the 8lgnal Service Observatory, where a
good collection of the Alpine flora of the
White monn tains, (corresponding identically
with that of the Arctic region at 70" north
longitude) ana where one can talk with the
signal men who have wintered as well as
summered on Mount Washington, about the
peculiarities of a life at this elevation during
the Arctic seaaon. The possibility of winter
ing upon tbe top of Mount Washington was
demonstrated by a party of three in 1870 1,
and now a squad or signal servloe mea oc
cupy the summit continuously. Maura.
William Line and Charles J. King are now
on duty there. Mr. Line (who is in charge) I
did not see, but I found Mr. King, who has
spent several winters on Mount Washington,
able to give some graphic experiences of
life at a point where, not only is the cold so
Intense, but where tbe wind has such tre
mendous velocity and force. Iu January or
1875 tbe temperature fell to 46? below zero;
ihe wind at tbe time blowing 120 miles to
the hour. In November last, the tempera
ture was 40" below zero, and the wind swept
across the mountain top at the extraordinary
speed of 170 miles to tbe hour, tbe greatest
velocity ever registered anywhere. Oa
Inquiry 1 find that the amount of snow-fall
on the top of the mountain Is uot so heavy
as might be supposed. Iu tbe language of
the Signal mau, when the temperature falls
a few degress below zero It Is too cold to
snow Lookingover Mr. Ktng'sdiarv I found
tbe following memoranda of some of his win

The prloes at the Summit House are tl.50
for each meal and tbe same for lodging, or a
total of 86 per day. As the lessees have
to pay $8,000 annual rent, and tbe season is
very abort, this would not appear to be so
verv exorbitant a rate In comparison with
hotel prices below if (he fare was np to the
mark. But the latter Is simply execrable,
wltb poor meats badly cooked; thin blue
milk; last year's eggs; and mnoh salted bad
butter that would Just make George Oyster

stay aa brief as possible and start down the
mountain to get something to eat.
SUHBiai FRO* MOUNT WASHINGTON.
Msst people who stay over night on
Mount Washington make ita point to get

In an exceptionally warm dry period like
tbe present, (It ban not rained ben for three
week* and the whole mountain country la
parched up;) bat It la not so pleasant when
the keen easterly winds prevail. The hotel
nun have found It necessary to pr?st the fol
lowing notice conspicuously about the band
ing: "Guests going oat tosee tbe sunrise are
requested rot to take the Bed-blankets from
the rooms." About 4 o'clock In the morning
an able-bodied man went all through the
bo .el ringing (I am positive! that identical,
ri'abollcal, discordant coir bell used by tne
German opera la ringing up tbe curtain.
This was tbe signal to get up to see the sun
rise; and as tbe partitions are thin and tbe
transoms particularly wide open at ths Sum

followed by tbe voloe (unmistakable) of a

Then someeffuslve boy?the Infant terrible
of a large family?went along the passage
pounding at every door on his way t/> be

mother, sisters and big brother were lodged,
shouting at tbe same time at the top of his
voice to hurry up. as sietp was impossible,
even those who prefer to see the sau when It
la pretty well up, turned out to swell the
shivering group perched on tbe rocks or the
hotel platform. Tbe Devoted Husband clam
bered to the roof of tbe signal station, while
the wife of bis bosom, burled in a heap of
shawls "and things," occnpted a boulder be
law. The sun came up qoite gloriously over
the lakes of white fog filling the valleys;
tinting the vapors rolling up tbe western
side of the mountain with brilliant colors,
and at the same time bringing out In
Brocken- like shadow upon these vapors the
Signal house and other buildings, and tho
figures upon the roof and rocks. "Isn't it
beautiful, Edwin?" remarked the laiy on
the boulder. "V-v-v-very bub-bub beauti

to Tuckerman's Ravine. It seems t> be con
sidered essential to have a guide for the Ir

to do Is to go down as nearly perpendicular
as may be and ascend on the same rule. It
ia hard work down or up, and when at the
bottom one finds that the snow arch we read
about Isn't there. The dry hot weather has
done the buslness for It, and the "Incipient
glacier" is reduced to an infinitesimal lump
of Ice about the size of Trustee Champlin s

Summit House dinner table. By the way,
the most conspicuous object, next to the
stove In the main hall of the Summit Honse
Is a laige map of the Bermudas. Now why
of all places In the world should there be n
large map of tbe Bermudas displayed on tne
top of Mount Washington? I asked the m
tlmable hotel clerk, but he answered by a
prolonged shake of the head that might mean
that he didn't know, or that, as was delicate

DOWS THI MOUNTAIN.
We left the summit at 4 p. m. yesterday,
walking down rather leisurely to enjoy the
various striking views at points ou the road,
reaching the Qlen House (eight miles) tn
about thrre hours. As the dast Is four
or five inches deep on all these mountain
and valley roads, pedestrians who can
measureabiy select their path, aave much
i be best of It over tbe passengers by the
coaches who travel all the way In a dust
AT THI G LBN.
The Glen Honse Is the nearest full, and Is
probably doing the best business this year or
sny of the blgb priced mountain hotels.
One reason for this Is tbe fact that it la the
only hotel thla side of tbe mountains; and
another is that It la supposed to be free, by
reason of Its facilities for drainage, from
danger of typhoid fever, which fever break
lng out In some of the other mountain hotels
heretofore has scared away their guests, and
proved a serious drawback to their suooess.
Then the Glen House is a sort of exclusive
affair, the resort of the upper-ten-doni of our
Eeat cities who want to avoid the rabble
rown upon the hotels on the other aide of
tbe moantalna by tbe excursion trains. Mil
liken, of the Glen House, fervently prayB
that there may never be a railroad near bim
so long as be la landlord. He defenda the
high rates at bla house (f 4.50 per day) on the
ground thai bla season lasts but six weeks;
that a less rate would not pay for a honse of
thla slxe (costing $150,000) and where attend
ance and fkre must be kept up to the highest
standard to snlt the class of guests that stay
there, largely through the entire seasou. It
may be that he will be able to keep up his
high priced patronage, and then again be
may through some fickleness, accident, or
misfortune on tbe part of this kind of custom
find it leaving him as has been the cane with
the Profile House, which has 'n the past
flourished with high rates and the patronage
of the New York Vanderbllt party, brj.
which this year Is comparatively deserteu.
