Life Above the Clouds.
E. Barnard Foote in Northwest Mag
azine: Existence in an isolated mining
camp is not without its drawbacks. If
you have a spark of interest in any
other part of the world, you cannot for
bear a shade of the "green and yellow"
sentiment, when you think of your mail
lying at the nearest point on the rail
road, fifty or perhaps a hundred miles
away, awaiting the oft'times uncertain
movements of the stage. It is certainly
mortifying to the spirit to read in a
week-old newspaper of startling casu
alties and political, social and moral up
heavals, which have already ceased to
interest the world at large, and to real
ize that you are stirred by the very last
ebb of the subsiding wave of sensation.
It is harrowing, too, to know that
great events have transpired, that polit
ical conventions or elections have taken
place and candidates are successful or
defeated, while you remain in harassing
ignorance of the result for days.
Yet in time you come to care hut lit
tle how the outside world wags, and
submitting to the inevitable, center all
your interest in the daily bulletins of
prospects, developments and sales in the
different camps of the district, and so
construct a very satisfactory little
world of your own, for the time.
If your location is in some one of the
romantic mountain regions in the Pa
cific Northwest, you may even become
so enamored of the fine healthfulness
and freedom of life among the pine clad
summits, as to look with compassion
upon dwellers amid the restraints of
civilization, and feel a wrench of some
thing like regret when the day arrives
which ends your sojourn in the happy
land of ducking suits and hob-nailed
shoes, and recalls you to the domain of
"biled" shirts and the tyranny of Mrs.
Grundy once more.
For here, indeed, has life a charm for
the poet, the artist, the philosopher. It
is like being born anew each morning
to stand in your cabin door and see the
first rays of the sun tint the dark sum
mits thousands of feet above you; to
watch the line of light creep downward
until Old Sol himself appears above the
intervening mountains and looks down
upon your humble roof; to see the gray
blanket of log, which has rested all
night above the valley a thousand feet
below you, turn white, then rosy, and
finally drift upward and disappear,
revealing a vast expanse of meadow
and river and far-off mountains bathed
in an enchanted atmosphere of blended
blue and silver.
There is grandeur, too, in looking off
at noon, when the heavens are disap
pearing behind piles of dazzling white
cumuli—whose shadows blacken great
patches on the sides of the opposite
mountains—and seeing a storm break
through some distant gap and trail its
gray-white vastness past you in the
valley, while all around is sunshine.
The soul of man cannot hut reflect
somewhat of its environments, and
stunted and blind in spirit must he he
who can stand above the thunder and
look down upon the lightning and the
tempest without saying exultingly, "I
am greater than all of these."
It must have been amid such sur
roundings that the writers of the sub
lime old hymns received their inspira
tion, for I have seen men, even desti
tute of any suspicion of piety, stand
spell-bound in the presence of Nature's
magnificence, or burst forth in a noble
strain of Doxology, Te Deum or Amer
If the latter hymn, by the way, had
never been written, it seems to me it
must instantly occur to any American
on beholding for the first time the view
from some of the lofty summits of the
continent. I am sure I should have
been the author of it myself under such
inspiring circumstances if another had
not anticipated me.
The wind that sweeps these altitudes
hears no taint of earth except the odor
of the pine trees.
The everlasting snows are scarcely
purer or colder than the spring at which
you drink. The dogs may plunge into
it, the horses dip their muzzles, or the
deer steal down to it by night, but the
ceaseless current gushing from the fis
sure in the granite walls keeps it always
full and limpid.
A thousand fragrant wild flowers—
roses, syringas, lilies—here bloom in the
rankest perfection and fade unnoticed.
Wild berries ripen and fall from their
stems ungathered, save by flocks of
grouse and pheasants. The mountain
streams swarm with trout, and fat
creatures of the chase are everywhere,
and wild almost to tameness.
Such is tha "forest primeval" of the
northwest mountain region. A land of
rugged health and boundless freedom,
of lofty peaks and lovely valleys, of
giant timber and dashing streams; a
park for the poor, the sick and the little
children of all the cities of the earth.
Would that some magician might
transport them hither for a holiday,
and would that I and all men, when
fretted in spirit and world a-weary,
might ily to the uplifting presence of
these everlasting hills to inhale the pure
breath of heaven and find health of
soul and body in the land above the
The Prospectors of Nevada.
The following from the Virginia City
(Nevada) Chronicle of August 25,1873,
is republished by request, and will no
doubt be of interest to our readers:
As I Bit here writing, I see before me the glar
ing. barren sides ef huge mountains, rising in
semi-circular ranges behind the little town, their
tops covered with 6now, their fronts bare of all
vegetation, except the stunted, foul-smsUinjj and
useless wild sage.—Eastern Cor. from Humboldt
On a plain both bleak and drear,
'Round a spring were gathered near—
Two were youngsters, blythe and bold;
The other two were tough and old
No parlor ornaments were they,
Good uien to drink, if not to pray—
Their ethics was, to do what's fair,
And always act upon the square—
Traces of wear their garments bore.
The only ornaments they wore
Were Colt's improved.
These last had triggers neatly tuned,
Ready to kill, or maim, or wound,
With barrels grooved.
These four upon a prospect were —
Their kind are ever on the stir
Hard their life, but warm their hearts,
Their mission here to seek for quartz—
In vain the younger one he tried
To light a fire, but could not hide
At last with oaths his anger burst,
And vehemently then he cursed—
Across the old man's face there came
Something like a look of pain
And in words both true and brave
To his injured feelings gave
Said he, Young man, curse not the brush—
The plant we all revere.
Listen to me while I repeat,
Its virtues we hold dear.
Upon the baldest head 'twill cause
The hair to grow and sprout.
The boldest skeptic e'er will pause
Ere this fact he will doubt.
Whenever fever racks the brain
Of either youth or age.
The remedy of greatest fame
Is that famed cure, the sage.
And one variety, called white,
Ranks far ahead of schools:
It makes herds frantic with delight,
Makes officials of fools.
And when it comes to baking,
What fuel can compare?
It needs but little raking
To keep it bright and clear.
Boys, when this life is over,
Änd I turn my last page,
Then plant me not in clover,
But 'neath the long loved sage.

Four New States.
South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana,
On February 22nd, 1881), the President signed
the bill creating South Dakota, North Dakota,
Montana, and Washington states of the Union.
South Dakota.— The great Prairie State, to
which the St. Paul, Minneapolis <te Manitoba
Railway has three main lines, reaching Ellen
dale, Abeideen, Huron, Watertown, and Sioux
Falls. Go to South Dakota via the St. Paul,
Minneapolis & Manitoba Railway and pass
through St. Paul and Minneapolis en route.
North Dakota.— Where is known the No. 1
Hard Scotch Fife Wheat ; whose healthful
climate nurtures the most vigorous and brainy
civilization on earth ; where single counties
raise more wheat, oats and barley than entire
states ; the 6oil of whose fertile prairies are
richer than the valley of the Nile; where the
Turtle Mountain, Minot and Devils Lake land
districts invite the home seeker to secure a free
home. Magnificent daily train service to Fargo,
Grand Forks, Grafton, Devils Lake, Bottineau,
and all other important points.
Montana the Golden.— Treasures in her
njines of precious metals; wealth in her 4,000,000
head of live stock ; profit in her fertile fields,
producing a larger yield of crops than any other
state or " territory ; the richest country per
inhabitant on earth; where prosperity is uni
versal; which has the best paid labor in the
world; a balmy winter climate, caused bv warm
winds from the Pacific. The St. Paul Minnea
polis & Manitoba Railway is the only railroad
passing through a continuous agricultural coun
try from St. Paul and Minneapolis te the Rocky
Mountains. It runs through the Great Reserva
tion of 18,000,000 acres of land, free to settlers,
in the Milk River Valley. Wood, water, and coal
in abundance; no irrigation required: the only
line passing through Great Falls, with Its 1,000,000
horse-power cataracts ; immense coal veins, and
surrounding farming country of free land,
through Helena the capital city and commercial
centre of Montana, and Butte, the richest mining
camp on earth, to San Francisco by the Colum
bia River Valley, Portland and Shasta Route, or
Ogden, Utah, to California points. Remember
this is the onlv line running dining cars, sleep
ing cars and free colonist sleepers of its own
from St. Paul and Minneapolis to Great Falls,
Helena and Butte. It is also the shortest line to
Washington —The country of tall timber, in
dented by Puget Sound, the Mediterranean of the
Pacific. Do not forget that the St. Paul, Minnea
polis & Manitoba Railway is the only line which
offers a choice of theee routes to the Pacific Coast.
The Manitoba-Pacific route is the oniy line by
which passengers en route for Tacoma, Portland
and San Francisco can pass through Port Town
send and Seattle. Free colonist sleepers run
through without change or delay. Distance to the
Pacific Coast is same as by other lines, but prices
of tickets are five and ten dollars less. Take the
