The Gorgeousness, Splendor and Sub
limity of the (;rand Canyon of the
Got It in the Neck--A Great Accession
to Great Fal!s-Religious Notes,
Etc.. Etc.
At Grand Canyon.
As soon as we aliahted from our con
veyance at the Yellowstone falls, we ha:s
tened to behold the sights. Our. friend
"Mc" had taken the wings of a dove or some
other rerial navig'ation,"and anticipated us
at the canyon by about fifteen minutes.
The "Prof-" was delayed longer than the
rest of the party on :account of ox(:aionally
stopp)ing to cateh a Iug, for which purpose
he carried a net. lie was fortunately en
abled to add many rare specimens to his
collection. When I arrived at the plat
form near the falls, I was frightened to see
"Mc" jesticulating wildly. I sprang to him
to prevent his leaping over the ralls, bnt
he said he was all right only a little carried
off his base by the august spectacle before
him. I looked around into a rocky re
treat' and there spied a young minister.
standing with clasped hands, exclaiming
"my Lord and my God." That may sound
somewhat fiat now perhaps, but at that
time, standing before such a scene, the
young clergyman's appeal, was very im
pressive. In fact I can conceive of no spot
where one is so strongly imbued with the
idea of Divinity as at that grand canyon.
That evening I sat watching the falls un
til called away to supper. Up the next
morning at five I went alone to "Lookout
Point" which is a rock standing out over
the wall to which it clings. There, as the
morning sun smiled upon the scene I felt
that I had been permitted to enjoy visions
of Paradise. The Great Creator has sur
passed himself in the formation of this
grand canyon. How then can pen wield
ed by a mortal of worse than meagre abili
ty attempt to discribe it? I sat, overawed,
bewildered, for two hours, silent and alone
looking down into the awful depths of
-1,200 feet where the foot of man had never
trod. Below mIne, in full view, the beanti
ful, green water's leaped 360 feet, lashed
into foam, which febounds in delicate
spray from the bottom of the profound
abyss. Again settling down to pursue its
course, the river winds along like a thread
in the depths of the canyon. Taking the
falls and the lofty walls along the river',
path and they are enough to inepire a cesf
iron man; but when nature is bent upon
producing a masterpiece, where is the
limit? Think of walls 1,200 feet high and
many miles long, hung with pictures made
up from all the resplendent colors of the
rainbow, and grotesque pieces of statuary
standing in riches and upon isolated pedes-"
tals. ,Exercise your felicitous imaginations,
read the most glowing accouuts, prepare
yourself for a surprise, visit the grand
canyon and you will realize that there are
some wonders and beauties of nature which il
cannot be conveyed to the mind except is
through the medium of that most ble:ssd 1i
of gifts to man, the sense of sight. There, Ic
in the bosom of the everlasting hills, nearly t
8,000 feet above the level of the sea, the Ti
giant emissaries of nature silently labored fu
for countless ages to prepare for coming ga
man a marvel of beauty and grandeur. It
has no couhterpart on earth and in vain
would you sweelp with telescope, the starry dih
firmament for such a revelation as the Cr
grand canyon of the Yellowstone.
A summons to t:ake ur carriage
brought me to my sen.es and reluctantly T
we all left "God's country" for the geyser
basin which is commonly conceded to the the
Ruler of the Infernal Riegions. Our route yo;
took us along a magnificent stretch of so
country, by a winding stre:un, luxuriant mc
groves and fertile meadows, up over the to 1
"divide" and down on the other side by a lai
road which had been washed out by the rea
spring torrents to such an extent that it is ma
considered impassable by "ordinary peo- of
ple." We began to think the same before
the descent was accomplished. For a lit- dog
tle way we were obliged to stand on one day
side to hold the wagon from capsizing, dot
then we would climb around to the other eriE
side as the grade shifted. Part of the pici
time we were way above the horses, then -j
so far below that we could not see them. tak
That road would be a fair one for a fox or hur
rabbit to run over, but it will require an any
appropriation of several thousand dollars oft
from Uncle Sam to make it practicable cas
for a wagon drawn by four spirited horses. prir
'We soon slid down to Fire Hole hotel, arcl
where we partook of a hasty meal and hay
sVed on over a beautiful level road to the casi
Upper Geyser Basin, the home of "Old fa
Faithful" and his companions. The scores mis
of steaming geysers, grouped together pre, ab
sented the appearance of a manufacturinig
city. Our arrival at the enchanted land
was promptly announced by the spouting
of the -"mortar" which seemed to realize
the fact that it had eager spectators, as its
eruption lasted for several minutes. There
was a crowd of people rushing to and fro.
from geyser to geyser as the spouting of
different ones were announced by cries of
delight from those who h,;ppened to be
near the performer.
Until you hear from me atraita you may
consider us as running wild in this pasture
of phenomena.

Dog-faced Men.
To the T;Ine: f
Several times during the past few mP o anttts b.
e there have appe:red in the columns of t:
a your excellent journal some reference to, a
Sso-called "d -f' ced men. Tihese n
must have been curious beings. If we are h
to believe the history of the creation as of
laid down in the scriptures, and I sea no
reason for disbelieving it, God created hrr
man in his own image and we never think ;
of our Creator as possessing the face of ia
dog. The best scientists of the present he'
day have concluded and are further-more we
at '
doubly convinced by many recent discov- e
eries. that the history of the creation as de- tin,
picted in the bible is correct; so, away be,
with your dog-faced men! It is all a mis- bu.
take. Not only is this phantom idea a Th
humbug, but it is ridiculous and I defy blo
any man to prove that such beings or relics the
of them have been ever discovered. In all the
cases where we have learned anything of ove
primeval man, by means of studies in ces
archeology, craniology or otherwise, we upj
have never, not once, had the slightest oc- ion
casion to believe that man ever had the mo
face of anything but a man. It is all a Ne'
mistake. Hoping you will rectify this roa,
absured notion, I remain ing

birch, alder, thorn, cherry etc., with chnclps
of trembling aspen on the hillsides, all
more or less invaded by the dark-green
spruce and pines of the mountains, form r

thickets. The cotton-wood, it is noticed,
grows taller and straighterlhere, than in the u

When we began the ascent the spri l
seemed to 1low from near the s.ummit 0o
the mountain, but now we are at its source.
there still resanins almost two miles of
good elimbing tahen.d. Vegetation of all
kinds became scarcer and les; varied. One
plant, however, seems to attain perfection
r on these exposed and rocky slopes. That i
is the common red raspberry, which o y -
!most realized the impression conveyed by
certain rather exaggerated cuts that a:dorn
the catalogues of many market ,c-ardeners.
O1ne had simply to sid down among the
bushes and pull off the berries by h:Ld
fulls till he could eat no more. Even
birds were wanting to take advantare of
this abundance. A single Clark's crow
and. two or three chipmunks were about
the only signs of animal life observed.
At last the very highest point is reached, a
bare rounded knob, from which we can
look over many of the surrounding moun
tains far out into the prairies beyond. The
great spaces about one, so devoid of all the
familiar noises and animal life one is ac- a
customed to, impress one curiously. But
already five hours have passed since leav- d
ing camp, and collecting one or two more
specimens we turn about and descend bya
somewhat different route, hastened by
thoughts of certain tender, young grouse,
ready cooked, that remain in camp. The h
descent occupies two hours or more, and
we get back hungry, but well satisfied
with the trama. Packing away our speci
mens in the afternoon, preparations are 1
made for starting to Great Falls the fol
Lowing morning, only, sorry that we do not
havetwo weeks, instead of one, tospend in I
the mauntains. RB. ib . ' i
