LETTER FROM THE EAST.
WHAT AN IMAGINATIVE CAIHOITE EXPERI
ENCED. One of the most delightful ami interest
ing summer trips any lover of beautiful
scenery, historical associations, and good
company can take is that I am about to
describe. Those of my readers' who have
been fortunate enough to pass over the
ground will recognize many of the objects
mentioned, and like myself imagine- them
selves again amid the scenes long to be re
membered. Those who have failed to visit
the many places of interest and beauty on
this route will do themselves a great favor
by doing so at once. There is a mania
among our people to visit foreign shores,
see the classic scenery of other lands, while
almost at their very doors lies a panorama
of beautiful landscape, sparkling lakes,
towering mountains, mysterious valleys,
broad, tree-fringed rivers, bustling towns
and villages, and historic ground, as beau
tiful ami interesting as any that meets
their gaze in the old world.
Early in the morning of a beautiful
summer day, we, four long-housed-up,
hard-worked fellows, eager for fresh air,
and new sights, took the train on the Le
high Valley railroad, connecting at Betide
hem with the North Fenn. railroad from
Philadelphia and the New Jersey Central
from New York, and were whirled at a
rapid rate up through the beautiful Lehigh
Valley, with the Lehigh river on one side
and towering, thickly-wooded mountains to
our right and left, hemming in the clear
stream, wending its way to the Dolware.
In about two hours wo reached tho "Switz
erland! of America," (not Captain Billy
Williams') hidden from the sight of tho
isitor, between mountains a thousand feet
high. The town is located in a "cut" or
narrow gorge between three mountains, en
tirely obscured from your sight until you
como opposite tho mouth or opening of the
narrow valley, when you see a long line of
houses, on either side of the street, nestling
beneath the shadow of the hills, so close,
that tho gardens of yards (lank the moun
tain's side, and in some cases extend up
ward on the mountains themselves. This
is Mauch Chutick. It has a population of
about five thousand and is in the great
anthracite coal region, first discovered and
worked in America, and quite a bustling
business plare." It is a favorite 'summer
ing place." Many persons from Philadel
phia and New York, as well as other cities,
come thero to enjoy tho eool mountain air,
mid fine wild mountain scenery.
One of its principal attractions is a rido
over or around tho "Iwitch-biick."
This railroad was built for the purpose
of conveying the coal from tho interior
fields among the long mountain ranges.
It is built very ingeniously and skillfully,
trains moving in all directions withwut a
locomotive. Hugo engines on tho hill tops
draw the cars from one summit to thu oth
er, and let them run down tho inclined
plane. Pleasure parties from all parts of
Pennsylvania, and from more distant parts,
visit tho place, and make excursions over
this mountain road, almost daily during
the summer months.
Finding that wo have scuo time on our
hands, and never having passed over tho
road before, we concluded to take a run
"over the switch back."
Quito a large excursion party from Phila
delphia and different points in New Jersey
visited this place ami passed over tho Sum
mit Hill roads; so wo followed tho crowd
ami slowly winded our way up tho hill from
tho valley of Chunk to tho foot ot tho long
ascent mountain, Mt. Pisgah. It wan per
fectly grand, with tho high, toworing hills
on all sides, back and front, right and left,
and tho hamlets and towns nestling at our
feet. Wo reached tho depot, about three
hundred of us, lat and loan, young and old,
rich and poor, homely and pretty, malo and
ghemalc. Group after group. Troop after
troop. Jolly, gay, puffing, blowing,
spluttering mortals, from here and there
and everywhere, all bent on something odd,
romautic, desperate. Wo took the cars,
Bomo)took themjong before the time to start
and sat broiling in the aun. As an old
traveler, I Waited until starting time in
tho shade, Car after car , was filled and
Started on its way up the hilL
We jumped aloard an open coach and
started too. ' Wo crept up in tho great
mountain, looking like a huge ant crawling
over a mammoth log. Up Mount Pis
gah 004 feet to tho top, down to the foot
of Mt. Jefferson like a streak of scared
electricity for six and a half, miles. Up
Mount Jefferson 403 feet more, ladiea
laughing, shrieking, sneezing, crowding,
flirting, just like ladies in thu valleys and
on tho plains. Quaker ladies with gray
bonnota and dresses, gay as tho re?t. Fat
ladicB wobbling along like pots of jolly,
r.-ir.rr.,. ... i . . ..
hi li oi irouc, inn and nature, up ino
switch back, camel back I should call it,
with its bumps and ridges, wc went. We
stopjied for refreshments on tho top of
PisgaL (I wonder wheru txv My Mose
stood and viewed tho land.seapo o'er.) I
don't want to tell your readers how it looks,
many have been there, they know all about
it. But I bet a sixpence not one of them
can describe it any more than I can.
A hundred hills overthrown, tumbled
helter skelter, one on top of the
other rocky, ridgey, cragged, rug
ged, looking like Milton's battle field in
"Paradise Lost" like the homo of Vulcan
where ho forged Ins thunderbolts like the
realms of tartarons, wild, wierd, desolate,
contused. Hills climbing hills aain, un
til the eye swims and thn head reels. Then
it commences to rain. Nature puts a gauze,
veil on its face. The rain beats in my lace
as I stand, clinging to the iron railing on
the platform of the car. We reach Summit
Hill, but we go down grade before reach
ing it. We are in a car with seats at the
sides, running from front to rear, or vice
versa. Going down hill it naturally
throws the equilibrium that way. - Lvlies
begin to slide on their seats. A very pretty
lady encroaches on my territory, hustles
me uncomfortably; glides into my lap
laughs, blushes, and finally nods familiarly.
Oh, Mamma Grundy be merciful! What
can I do? Throw her overboard, crashing
among the rocks? Non! I remembered
Socrates, Aristole ami a host of the old
philosophers. 1 closed my eyes, clenched
my fisN, and grinned sardonically. I don't
care much lor Mammy Grundy on an aver
ago anyhow. Sho is an old fraud, swind
ler. Tretty soon tho car reached level
ground. My load receded. I felt well I
felt sorry. I rather liked it, in spite of
At Summit Hill I saw the very spot
where the first digging was dono for
anthracite coal. Saw tho mine all burning
for years. I let it burn and went on; pass
ed the ico cave, and let it freeze, It was
raining and I wanted to get home. Dowu
Jefferson we went at a fearful rate. Still I
hung outside like t bumble bee on a man's
coat tail. All at once there was a whizz,
and crash, and ono of the suddeiiest stops,
I ever stopped at. Women shrieked, men
howled, children cried, and then all piled
themselves into ono of tho most promiscu
ous heaps you ever saw. Wc had run off
the track. Some crazy cow, selt-coneeited,
like some male moolies I know, took a
notion that she was a little more important
than a railroad train, and refused to turn
out. Wc had no engine, so wo could not
reverse; no whistle, so we couldn't blow;
no bell, so wo couldn't ring. Well, the
only thing that could be done was to go
ahead. We went ahead. Tho utxt thing
we saw that cow lying under the
middle cftr, butchered and skinned
as neatly as our friend Koehler could do it.
The two front cars were off the track; the
ties and lails torn up; the track ploughed
up; and only the rear car, on which I
stood, and no doubt kept in its place by
my superior ' weight, still keeping its
ground. Some of the passengers were
stunned, some bruised, some of the ladies
faiuted, while a dozen men fanned them
selves with hats, canes, cigars, etc. 1
walked quietly into the woods and picked
autumn leaves. They talked about lifting
the cars on tho truck. I didn't like it, so I
went away. I don't believe in communists,
and they communed. Well, wo walked
home, two ami a half miles in the rain.
But I am willing to bet a cent that tow
won't bother that lailroad any more. I
don't believe wo shall go back to-morow
moruiug to help lift that crazy train oti tho
track, either. At least, I shall await fur
ther orders. If I go over the Switch-Back
again you may switch my back for mo.
But I must close my rambling letter and
get ready for tho afternoon train and our
uoxt point of interest. Hamblkk.
