twenty-live miles. It is the paradise of
banters, a mfitury to the scientists, aa
jnipira'ion to the artists and a terror to
the inperititioas.
About live milei from the village of
Boffolk, where the Dismal Swamp bejfini,
is Lake Druminoud, named, some
Mr, fora hooter who was lost in the
itimpin the too ardent oursult of a
wounded stag, that led to (he discovery
of this beautiful shea*, of water. Others
117 it ia named for Sir William Drummond,
of North Carolina. This lake if
in almost period ovnl. It is seven
miles long and live mile* wide. The
water ia dark, almost black, but perfectly
tram parent, reflecting every object
with startling distinctness. When
iield in a glass vesiol it look.* liko pare,
itrong cortee. This color is caused by
the exudations from the cypress and
juniper trees, which (orm a thick fores',
throughout the swamp. Gorgoously
colored wild flowers *row in profusion
ia the rich, dark.soil. The trees are
garlanded with festoons of gray moss
irura the topmost boughs to the water's
ftdtrs. The yellow jessamino, a brilliant
snd most fragrant, but poisonous, wild
flower, wreaths its perfumed blossoms

The approach to Lake Drummondis
by i rode canal, three mile* of which is
a "straight waterway ioto the Jako. This
forms an avenue, bordered by cypress
tree?, which riso erect out of the water
130 to 150 feet in height, and as symmetrical
in ihane as the masts of a ship.
The bougUi, densely draped with mo*#,
form an arch over this canal, which in
midsummer is so thick a sunbeam can
tcarcelv pierce it. The lake is surrounded
by the same tall, erect cypress
trees, interspersed with monster junipnrs
or white cedars. The reflection of
these straight, lofty, sentinel-like trees
in the clear, black water is peculiar.
Tiie most unaccountable tiling about
, the Dismal Swamp is it is higher than
the firm outlying country and increases
in attitude toward the interior, where
it is twelve feet highor than the surrounding
land. This elevation of this
morass has been uccountod for on the
hypothesis that where Lake Drummond
now is was the crater of an extinct
volcano, and and was fathomless. This
theory btu exploded; the lake is fifteen
| feet in depth, and every characteristic
o( the soil disproves ino iue? ium no
substratum is volcanic.
8ir Charles Lyell and other scientists
oI the pest and prosonfc have found
layers of spongy decaying vegetable
matter over the better known portions
of the morass. Lord LyelL made an
eipecial study of the great dismal. His
description of it aud hit conjecture as
to the future coal deposits which a
corning generation may find hero aro
of great scieulitic value. Five rivers
find their sources in this swamp. Two
canals now penetrate parts of it. The
tow-palbs are logs of wood, on which
| the man who pulls the canoe walks,
i These logs of wood in warm weather
I are literally covered with terrapin,
water moccasin, copperhead snakes,
lizards and other reptiles, which makes
walking over them sometimes danger*
ous. Brawny neero men usually pull
these canoes and lumber rafts, und find
pood excuse to take plenty of whisky
along as au antidote for the inevitable
snakebite. Tho'raison d'etre of these
canals is the value of the cypress
ibingles, which are sold in immense
quantities along the shores of the
iwarn[i. Another sincular feature of
the great dismal is tlio growth known
m cyprrss knees. These are coneihaped
excrescences iron* the roots of
the cypress trees, and look like miniature
pyramid! ruing up t'rom the slimy
booze.
In 1725 Colonel Byrd, of Wertover,
Vs., made a aarvev of the Dismal Swaran
it tho requeit of tho proorietary governor,
who was anxious to induce Georgo
IIL to have it drained. Colonel Hyrd'n
report was favorablo, and was forwarded
to England with a strong petition from
a number of Virginia planters, who
promised to bear nil the expense* of
the drainage if liis ninjosty would give
tlioin the land free of taxes. A copy of
Coloool Hyrd's report is now in tho
library of Congress. Ho loft .bis party
in tho swamp; what became of them ho
niver told. Colonel liyrd got out, however.
Extracts from his manuscript are
interesting:
"March 13,1728.?Early this morning
the chaplain repaired to us with the
men we had left at Mr. Wilson's. We
had sent for them the overling before to
return those who had the labor oar
irom Coratuck Inlet. But, greatly to
our lurprNe, they petitioned us not to
be relieved, hoping to gain immortal
reputation by being the first of mankind
that ventured through the groat Dismal.
Our day'a work ended within a
quarter of a mile of tho Dismal Swamp,
when the ground begun to be already
full of btinken holes and slashes.
"It is hardly croditable how little th?
bordering inhabitant* are acquainted
with tbi* mighty swamp, notwithstanding
they had lived thoir wholo lives
within smell of it. Yet, as groat atrantfers
aa they are to it, they pretended to
b? very exact in their account of itadiTneniions,
and nam ponitivo that it
would not be over nevon or eight mile*
wide, but know hover more ot the matter
than star gazers know of tho diatauce
of fixed stars. At the namo liino they
ware simple enough to tell our men of
lions, panthers and alligators they were
to encounter in that dreadful place. In
ihort, we saw plainly that no knowledge
of this terra incognita was to bo
g"t but from our experience. For that
reaion we reaolved to mako preparations
to onter the next morning. Wo
allotted each one of the eurvoyors
twelve men to attend in this painful enterpriie.
"The 'enterprise' proved too much for
Colonel Byrd and his party. After terrible
experiences with wild buaetrf,
nns^iniros and anakes they abandoned
the swarnp.
"There are many weird traditions
connected with the Great Dismal. One
olthe most uncanny i* of a phantom
"hip, said to be a merchantman captured
by Captain Kldd, the pirate. Tim
"hip was dismantled, robbed,.jte crow
murdered and thon towod up one of tho

I Uiieol tfie moat romantic traditions is.
Of an Indian warrior, who loved the
favorite daughter of hie chief, lite
lather looked higher for the maiden,
but the loTera ran oft to the ihorei of
Lake Drummond, baiit a wiicwam beneath
the cypresses anil lived so happily
together until thev were both very
old that the Great Spirit allowed thorn
to revisit tho eartii every full moon and
ride on the lake in a boat drawn by
white awana. Tnia Indian myth bean
an analogy to Lohengrin, one of the
most"ro:nantlc of the Khiuagold lexondi,
tho only inatance of thia kind I
recall anions the traditions ot the
American aborigines. Another atory is
of an Indian lover who waa driven insane
by tho death of his affianced bride.
This was related to Tnomai Moore
trlinn lin u'.ia'in tiiia xrinnlrv anil hv
him otnbalmed in verse. The Indian
warrior lied to the lake ol tbe Dismal
Swamp and disappeared forever, excepting
at midnight, when he, too.
crosses the lake with hia sweetheart in
a white c/inoe. Many peddle who live
near believe Lake Drummond to be the
rendezvous for numerous other ghotte
which are euppoaad to haunt the
twamp. This supposition arose from
the number at ignes falul which are
really aeon every night in almost every
part of the Dismal Swamp.
The negroes are especially afraid of
thia extensive bog, and partly for thia
reason the place abounds with opossums,
coons, rabbits, squirrela, birds,
all sorts of small game, with an occasional
deer or bear. It is useless to tell
thorn the flitting, mysterious lighta
they see at night are burning gases
which arise from the fens and marshes.
They would not believe it. I have tried
to convince them of this, and the result
was a pitying reproof of my skepticism.
They have all heard the story of the Indian
hunter and hit ladylove, who was
supposed to cross Like Dratnmond at
midnight in a "white canoe," and the
myriads of tbe will-o'-tbe-wispt. who
escort them. The "white canoe, they
claim to have seen at midnight on the
bosom of the dark lake, was, perhaps, a
flock of white swan birds, which, with
wild ducks and tnrkeys and marsh hens,

I recall a picture of the Dismal Swamp
I once enjoyed. It was midsummer,
and I was riding through a part of it
skirting; Luko Druramond. A glowing
sunset was fading into a hot, moonless
twilight; no breeze stirred the gossamer
tendrils of the graceful inovs or dark,
glistening leaves of the cypress trees.
The black water was as silent and motionless
as it a magician's spell rosted
where the crested ripples should have
been. Its lustreless surface reflected a
few stars, which shone out of the murky
liquid with as sinister.and uncertain a
gleam as if every one was a baneful and
ill-otnenod Algol, The air wan heavy
with the odors of the jessamine, the
mimosa, the magnolia, and the aroma
of the countless nhrubs which grow in
profusion in tiio rich soil.
It seemed liko a vast cathedral in
which restless spirits of evil might worship.
The incense from censers swung
from unseen hands bore a perfume too
heavy for the nostrils of healthv mortal-*.
As the sunlight faded the red
glow in the west did not suggest the

with stately.churches, whoso sat*
ined memorial windows temper and
soften the glare of the parish day or
mellow and refine the ardent tones of
the afternoon sun. The twilight deepened
through the aislea of the foreit;
the massive trunks of the cypress and
juniper trees looked like columns of
tan-colored marble, arched with a dome
of dark foliage, frescoed with a delicate
tracery of pale-gray moss, through
which not a star or fleck of blue sky
shone,
Down theso dusky aides balls of fire
would Dash and fade as if the will-o'-thewisp
had employed a band of impish
acolytes to light hundreds of uncertain
tapers on countless movable altars; decaving
trees covered with gleaming
phosphorus either stood erector bent
prostrate alone and down these raystetions
vistas like goblin priests or spirits
of white-robed Carmelite nunB celebrating
a vesper service in this weird minster
of exquisite workmanship.
The lake, with its starry reflections,
was like a lesaellated floor of black marble;
tho groined arches bore tho fairylike
tracery of the silver mosa over a

caine from tho reedy marshes, no whisper
from Che motionless trees, no aong
from the drowsy birds. no tipples from
the waveless water. Silence was supromo
for momonts, until the ear caught
a far-oft monotone like tho note of a bass
pedal of a mighty ortran at a great distance,
and recognized the roar of the
ocean's nurf breaking on tho first of a
chain of ror.kv reefs which culminates in
tho thunders and torrora of storm-tossed
and wreck-strewn liattera*. It was fitr
ting music for this unique temple of
nature. The softer diapason of singing
birds and whispering leaves, of noisy
brooks and rustling reeds, would have
beon ont of place in this vast shadowed
ninpithoatre, where some circa or king
of the (ihoines might have assembled
their followers and celebrated their sinister
orgies. Or, where the spirits of
the unseptilchred dead who have been
wrecked oir tho treacherous coast since
earth's Beismic throes gave birth to the
hidden sand duces and inonstor boulders
wight hold a nightly cam ival.
I suddenly realized thot I did not
blame me negroes so much for their
superstition. I gave my horse the
rein, becauso he seemed to be as willing
as I was at that hour of tho evening to
run away from the haunted lake of the
Dismal Swamp.

The pressure ia unusually high over
North Dakota, tho reading of tho barometer
being 31 inches, probably tho
highest record in tho history of tho
woathor bureau. Tho pronstiro is relatively
low on tho Pacific roast. The
barometer lias fallen rapidly in Now

New York, Dec. 27.?The itorm which
began at 5 o clock last evening continued
after noon, though abated in
violence. The snow that (ell during
the night hai been converted by rain
into a heavy slush. Railway trains are
generally behind time, and telegraphic
communication i? much interrupted.
At Handy Hook the wind ia blowing a
moderate gale from east-northeast. The
water alon? the Staten Inland shore 11
unusually high, and in many places the
wavos maleu a clean breach over the
docks. At quarantine tho waves are
breaking over the atone wall which was
built to protect the shore along tbe
front of the quarantine grounds.
Report# from the interior indicate
more or leaa serious interruption to railway
traffic, Central New York showing
the mott general disturbance. At Syracuse
there ia eighteen inches of snow;
trains are trorn one to three hours behind
time, and street cars are unable to
move. No trains have reached Auburn
from the east, and the morning train
from the west was two hours late. In.
Western New York the storm is severe,
but thus far trains have been run
nearly on schedule time. ,
The storm extends all along the New
England coast. In Maine, tbe heavy
enow fall is a source of gladness to lumber
men, who are waiting for an opportunity
to cloar the camps of the season's
cat.

Pittsburgh, Dec. 27.?The snow atorm
which atarted in last evening proved to
be the heaviest that has been kaown
here for several years. Up to 10 o'clock
this morning twolve iachos ot aaow had
fallen and it was still anowiug. Trains
on all roads are delayed ana there is
much doubt whether the eastern trains
will be able to got over the mountains.
Street car travel in the city is seriouily
interfered with and in Home parts of
the city telegraph and telephone wires
are down. Little wind accompanied
the storm here, which reduced the damage
which would otherwise have been
done to wire?. There is no ice in the
rivers and rivertnon are looking for a
thaw which will make nariirable water
and permit the shipment of coal to
southern porta.
The blizzard was general over this
section and, especially, severo iu the
Allegheny mountains, where the snow
drifted and impeded travel. Though !
trains from the east were from four to
seven hour.? lute, and from the west they
were nearly as much behimd time. Up
to this hour no wrecks have been reported.
At 7 a. m. tho thermometer
registered 20 degrees above zero at the
(Jnited States signal station here.

Philadklphia, Dec. 27.?Tho sleet
storm which followed last night's fall of
snow appears to have wrought great J
damage to telegraph and telephone cir- j
caits within a radius of fifty miles of
this city, Tho telegraph companies aro I
badly crippled on every circuit. Just'
outside the city limits, on tho western
trunk routoof the Western Union Com*
f>any, thirteen poles aro down in one
ocalitv and further weBt'five more are j
prostrated. On other routes almost the j
same condition is reported. The Postal
Company reports wires s outh, west and
north in bad shape. Southern New ,
Jerney is cut off entirely. The Long |
Distance Telephone Company has fiftyone
poles down in Camuen alone, and
outside of that city the condition is just
ss bud. While the storoi was severo at
Delaware Breakwater no shipping disaster
is reported. The only damage to
shipping in this harbor was that caused
by a few vossels dragging their anchors
and banking against tho wharves.

inohos of snow down about Padncah,
while considerable snow h?* fallen
about Arcadia. Westorn trainmen do
