IMhoo In tint Sunny South of Franco I'artleiilarly Adopted to l.ovcmiildiig, Honeymooning u, Luxurious Idle ness Xotas of n Itccent Visit. (Copyright, 1891, by American I'rcss Assochi tlcm. I . . SAW tho Hiin rlso i from tho window 01 tno railway car riugo as 1 rattled nloiiK on my way from Annecy. Wo went on slowly, as Is tho innnncr of trains In Suvole, stopping ut every little station, and I finally lenched JJon St. Dhllor ut two minutes past 8 ii hungry womua, for whom, after nil, nothing better waited than chicory coffee and bad bread. I had to wait till pnht 1 o'clock p. m. for tho Lcs Voiron1! wagon, in what was called the restaurant of the station. How to pass thoo five hours was a problem. Happily I had pen and ink, and I bet to work and wrote letters, pausing only to eat 11 forlorn luncheon of fried veal and sodden potatoes. To leave Hon St. Dirtier is of Itself enough to nils.' one's bpirits. and I wel comed the "carriage" warmly. I mounted be-sirto the driver and found him a good man and true, properly proud of the beau tiful scenery through which lie conducts his p.issengi'rs, and which 1 was ready to admire to his heart's content. Tho ten miles which climb from St. Dirtier to Ics Voirous occupy four hours. Looking nt the mountain ftom the valley below, you fancy it must bo like climbing a ladder to get to its summit; but the road winds and doubles, and winds and doubles again and now you face the east and now you lace the west now you are looking at Mont ISlnuc, and now at tho blue waters of Lake 1 .01111111 smiling below. And as you go on aud up. wild flowers thicken about your way, and you get into tho sweet breathed shelter of tho great llr woods, aud your spirits rise with the rising way At3 o'clock you come in sight of the Hermitage tliesolitary hotel on this moun tain top. The guide book of Savoio tells you it is a "magnificent hotel" otherwise I should have said it was the simplest and most primitive place imaginable, but thor oughly licit mill comfortable, and pervaded by such n spirit of friendly hospitality that you feel at home at onto. The view which the hotel commands is the great thing, and that must be a joy forever. On one side is the Alpine range, with .Mont Blanc the crowned king of the whole. On the other you look down to Geneva, which seems like a toy village in the distance, to the blue waters of Lake Leman and the mist robed Jit ran beyond. The site of this hotel has many a legend counectcdwith.it. It is called "The Her mitage," because it was formerly tho re treat of certain hermits who founded a convent there. But it-s traditions go much farther back than that. Long ago, when SMFFKT. 1 rt' S?T WROTE LKTTnns WHII.K WAITINO. the world worshiped the gods of Olympus on this very spot, the pagans erected a temple to Venus. In this temple was an oracle of much note, and, long lifter Christi anity bnd conquered tho valleys, Paganism still reigned on these heights and tho mountaineers used to como to the Venus berg to consult tho oracle. Bur, at last a certain godly bishop of Geneva was so scan dalized by theso performances that ho led a band to overthrow tho templo and break tho stntuo of tho goddess, and so, hence forth, tho oracle was dumb, and poor Venus lot her ohelter. But Satan was not disposed to quit his old haunts, so he entered the shapo of a wild boar and rnv aged tho country and toro iu pieces all pious travelers who refused to deny the name of Christ and tho apostles. But this could uot lust. One day while hunting in tho mountains that good Christian, Chevalier Amedeo do I jingin, encounterwl thissntanic wild boar. The boar devoured tho servant of do Lan gin in a trico nnd wounded tho chevalier himself, when tho noblo gentleman uttered a vow that if iio were delivered from death he would build on tho spot a chapel and consecrate it to tho Holy Virgin. This ex cellent olTer wns accepted by tho higher powers, and tho wild boar forthwith ex pired under the swonl of the knight. The Sieur rto Langin erected the chapel accord ing to his vow, and beside it he built a hermitage, whither he retired from the gay uses of tho world and passed tho rest of his lifo in penitence nnd prayer. In the cliapol he set up 11 statue of tho Virgin, of which tho figure, was black, while tho face was gilded. This "Black Virgin," as she was called, worked many miracles, one of which was in favor of n beautiful girl named Brigitta. ilrigitta was a shepherdess, and one of the hermits saw and loved her--for, ulas, bin enters sometimes even into tho abodes of the holy. Brigitta herded her Bhecp quite ucarthe Hermitage, whicb,w.is,npity, &Jk r9RP 71 J' TTi W &F" for it wns putting temptation in tho poor hermit's way. Suddenly he rushed out mid caught her iu his arms, aud sho cried aloud on the Black Virgin, and with her cry sho gave 11 leap an awful leap over tho near precipice. The hermits all rushed forth and sought for her, and found her an hour Inter quite unharmed, for the Black Virgin hart sustained her in her fall and deposited her gently at tho loot of tho precipice. And do I not know that this is true, for 1 have seen the rock whence she jumped, and they call It to this day the "Sunt do la I'ucello" the .Maiden's Leap. After this wonderful miracle tho chapel was repaired and tho Black Virgin was set bravely upon her pedestal and people camo to neck her favor more numerously than ever. Hermits of high degree sought refugo for their bodies nnd peace for their onls in tho Hermitage, and all went well until 17C9, when, the monastery being burned, tho hermits had toretiro to Annecy anil the Black Virgin was taken ton church in Boegc, where I bcltovo she reigns still. Since that time the mountr.in top of Les Voirous has been glvcu over to more worldly uses, though there is still a chapel there near tho ruins of the old one, nnd tho good cure lives in his little bouso near by and gathers from among the guests of the hotel a small congregation of the faithful for his daily morning mass iu tho little ehapcl. Some years ago, 1 don't know just how many, Dr. Lombard, of Geneva, wrote a good deil about the immense benefit to bo derived from mountain air, and called much attention to Lcs Voiron, tho air of whicli place seemed to him of so remarkably in vigorating a quality that be greatly de plored tho absence of any accommodation there for visitors. Thus it camo about that ono of the mayors of Boego built the hotel called "The Hermitage." and threw open to the public this spot, which I think 1 may justly call a "I'aradise on a Hill top." The view of Mont Blanc from Cliamouuy is not at all compaiahlo for beauty with the nearer view from Lcs Voirons. The prospect there is the noblest nnd most beautiful I can recall anywhere indeed it is said by the much traveled to bo one of tho most beautiful views iu the whole world. On the east is llio whole chain of which Mont Blanc is king. And you never see these glorious mountains twice under the same aspect. Sometimes the air is so clear that they seem preteruaturally near, aud fitrsiC -'t' V M' "few AMINO THE WINDIVO ISO An. that means that a storm is threatened. Sometimes the lower mountains are covered with clouds, and you would fancy a great inland sea rolled before you, out of w Inch Mont Blanc lifted, like a strange god, his snow crowned front. 1 have risen to see the golden glories of the sunrise break over these mountain tops. I have lingered to sec the afterglow of tliu'Miuset Hush them with roso color as soft as lines the beat t of a sea shell. I have seen them with a full moon hanging iu tho clear sky and bath ing them with pale splendor till they seemed like hills in gliostland. And morning, noon and night their beauty thrills me with an ever fresh surprise. The wonder Is that people live hero just as they live down in tho lower world. I seo them llirtand gossip and play billiards, and laugh at bail jokes and smoke their iixlif ferent cigars just as if this were not Para dise, and the gates of some golden heaven did not open just above the heights. I must own that of all places I have ever seen this would bo the very Garden of Kden for lovers. In every direction paths lead up or dowu among the fir tiees paths soft with tho fallen leaves of many a vanished year. The air is fujl of tho sweet, balsamic odor from tho myrlnds of trees. Tho climb ing is just steep enougli to give excuse for tho constant service of a helping hand; and here and there 1110 seats on which to sit and dream while the tempeied sunshine sifts through tho green boughs, and the happy, unafraid birds call to each other over your heads. I am suro tho world hard ly holds so charmlug a. spot for a honey moon as Les Voirons. 1 havo seen ono pair of lovers there who had been married for twenty years, and had not got over honeymooning jet, and still made tho most of their opportunities as if they had been newly betrothed, I bupposo it was tho influence of the place. It is cheap bliss, moreover for tho higli cst prico any ono pays for room and bo.iixl is two dollars a day, aud the denizens of tho star chambers under tho roof pay but S1.-I0. The hostess prides herself and with goal reason on tho excellence of her table, though it would seem t difllcttlt thing to supply It thus liberally on the top of a muiiutaiu nearly as high om 'Mount Wash ington. Von cannot possibly spend any money tbero for frivolities, sinco shops and their temptations are of tho lower world. Tho far off cares and tumults of thnt lower world do not vex you. On the heights, why should you listen for vain rumors from below? In tho two weeks I was thero no drop of rain fell. Suns ro?o in glory and set iu splendor. Soft winds shook out the balmy odors from the balsaniy trees; flowers sprang up by the million in tho meadows, and 1 felt like saying Ut thoio afar ofT, "Come hither, for here is tho Garden of Kdeu, and here shall the sad Perl find ngain tho lost Paradise." Loiisi Chandler Mollton. tVluit Vyiinlelinno Itrnlly Is. Owing to n popular misconception this Htibstnnce, whoso tnoro appropri ate nnmo is "baleen," lins been call oil "bono," while it really contains no bono whntuvor in ita composition. It resembles rather 11 number of hard ened hairs cemented together by a sort of gum. Chemically it consists of a basis of albumen hardened by phosphato of lime, tho latter, how over, in very &mafl quantity. It takes tho place of teeUi in certain &leeie3 of whales, especially tho Greenland nnd southern whale. A full grown Greenland whalo yields about a ton of tho substance. Tho whaling vessels usually bring it hi pieces of ten or twelve blades each, but sometimes, if tho voyage is long, tho sailors hnvo time to strip off each blado and divest it of its hairs. In preparing them for uso tho blades aro cleaned and softened by boiling for about two hours; while tstill hot they aro fixed in largo wooded vises and shaved iuto tho required sizes. Theso slices or strips aro dried smooth by steel scrapers and polished with either emery or dry quicklime. Besides its original usage in stiffen ing corsets and tho waista of ladies' dresses, whalebone or baleen is em ployed in making walking sticks, snuff boxes covering telescopes and whip handles, and oven making some kinds of urtiticial llowers. Tho libers detached in slicing tho blades aro used instead of bristles in cheap brashes, nnd sometimes instead of hair in stulling mattresses. St. Louis Post Dispatch. Ancient I.nus anil I.iinmiilicm. In ancient days nobody but a lord was deemed worthy to establish rales of conduct for tho people, and very crado rales thoy wero too. The Greeks at tho time of tho Trojan war, tho Jews, tho Irish and tho Anglo Saxons placed a money valuo on ev ery crime which man committed. Thus it cost about $05,000 of our money to murder a king and only 1,000 to kill a priest. If tho lino was not paid, then the friends of tho king or tho priest could fall on the murderer and kill him. If one man scratched another's faco ho had to pay for it. Such wero tho laws of tho lords, but as civilization advanced and tho common peoplo got seats iu legislative assemblies, crim inal jurisprudence took 011 dignity and wisdom. Now wo hnvo good laws and virtuous lawmakers, as a general thing, but wo still maintain tho notion that a lord is better tluui anybody else. Cleveland Leader. Often r.niiKCil I'nr.
