"BAD LANDS" IN MONTANA.
Miles on Miles of Rugged Chasms,
It seemB to mo that no human be
ing can stand on that spot nnd vlow
that mnrvoloua labyrinth of wild
naturo without being thrilled' by it.
Instantly your thoughts fly to tho
Grnnd Canyon of tho Colorado, as
seen from Point Subllmo, only this
is In mlnlnture. The fact that you.
stand on a sharp point, from which
tho world drops steeply nwny on
threo sides, Is not tho thing that
is so profoundly Impressive. It is
tho depth, tho breadth and tho awful
wilderness of tho mnzo of bad lands
lnt which you look. Boforo you,
and on either hand, thero stretch,
mllos upon miles of ragged chasms,
divided and walled In by a thou
sand fantastic cliffs, and buttresses,
and domes of naked hard pan that
stubbornly defy the forcos of ero
sion, nnd refuse to crumble down.
In several places thero are masses
of earth architecture that romlnd
one of tho ruined castles on tho
Rhino. These bnro walls aro most
ly of gray earth, not rock, and tho
carving of them has been most
strangely done. It Is only when you
climb among them, apd touch them,
that the wonders of oroslon aro fully
Tho hard, dry oarth has most stub
bornly resisted tho disintegrating
action of tho water, wind, heat and
cold, and thero aro hundreds of earth
cliffs nearly as smooth and as perpen
dicular as tho brick walls of Harlom.
I disllko to estimate tho total
drop of those bad lands from the
plateau to tho waters of Snow croek,
but I think it is about 800 feet
After tho first moments of spell
bound wonder and amaze, you begin
to pick out tho goosraphy of what
lies beforo you. You seo that tho
axis of all this wild wasto of carved
and furrowed earth Is tho level and
very narrow valley of Snow ere ok,
which comes down from tho west.
You can easily trace its course east
ward to tho point where it bends
abruptly northward and runs into
tho Missouri, parallol with tho last
eight miles of Hell creek. In the
creek bottom thoro Is a sinuous
string of cottonwood trees, aspens and
willow brush. Scrlbner.
Richest Family In Europe.
It is not generally known that tho
imperial family of Russia is tho rich
est royal family in Europe, and de
rives its vast wealth from threo
Bources the state treasury, tho im
perial domains (formorly church
lands), and tho so-called "cabinet
properties." ' A writer in Harper's
Weekly gives some Interesting. ncts.
Tho stato treasury pays out?7,6ott,ocf j
per annum for tho needs of tho 'lm-
perlal house, principally for tho main
tenance of tho palaces and tho officials
and servants attached to them. Tho
reigning empress, for example, has
an allowance of $100,000 per year, and
the dowager empress the same. Every
child born to tho czar receives from
birth to tho age of 21 nearly $20,000
a year, whllo tho heir to tho tbrono
receives annually, in addition to tho
maintenance of palacos, $50,000.
