Thanks to Prof. Hay den.
Fortunately, almost as scon as it was
■discovered it was dedicated and set j
' apart for the benefit of the people, a i
c of legislation that shines benign- j
ly amid the common dust-and-ashes
iry of the public domain, for which '
the world must thank Prof. Hayden
übove all others; for he led the first
scientific exploring party into It, de
scribed it. and, with admiring enthu
siasm. urged congress to preserve it.
As delineated in the year 1572, the park*
< ntained about 3,:544 square miles. On
March 30, 1891, it was enlarged by the
Yellowstone national park timber re
serve, and in December, IS.)?, by the
Teton f, .rest reserve; thus near
ly doubling its original area,
and extending the southern boun
dary far enough to take in the sub
lime Teton range and the famous pas
ture-lands of the big Rocky mountain
game animals. The withdrawal of this
large tract from the public domain did
no harm to any one; for its height,
»'•. to over 13,000 feet above the sea,
and its thick mantle of volcanic rocks,
prevent its ever being available for ag
riculture or mining, while, on the oth
er hand, its geographical position, re
viving climate, and wonderful scenery
combine to make it a grand health,
pleasure and study resort— a gathering
place for travelers from all the world.
The national parks are not only with
drawn from sale and entry like the
forest reservations, but are efficiently
■ managed and guarded by small troops
of United States cavalry, directed by
the secretary of the interior. Under
tiiis care the forests are flourishing,
protected from both axe and fire; and
bo, of course, are the shaggy beds of
underbrush and the herbaceous vege
tation. The so-called curiosities, also,
are preserved, and the furred and
feathered tribes, many of which, In
danger of extinction a short time ago,
arc now increasing In numbers.
Fronts) Every Month.
This is the coolest and highest of
the parks. Frosts occur every month
of the year. Nevertheless, the tender
er tourist finds it warm enough in
summer. The air is electric and full of
ozone, healing, reviving, exhilarating,
kept pure by frost and fire, while the
be« nery is wild enough to awaken the
dead. It is a glorious place to grow
in and rest in; camping on the shores
of the lakes, in the warm openings cf

the banks of the streams, by the snowy
waterfalls, beside the exciting wonders
or away from them in the scallops of
the mountain walls sheltered from ev

vitingly near for outlooks and exer
Roiling springs and huge deep pools
of purest green and azure water, thou
sands of them, are plashing and heaving
in these high, cool mountains, as if a
fierce furnace fire were burning beneath
each one of them; and 100 geysers,
white torrents of boiling water and
steam, like inverted waterfalls, are ever
and anon rushing up out of the hot,
black underworld. Some of these pon
derous geyser columns are as large as
sequoias— five to sixty feet in diameter,
150 to 300 feet high— and are sustained
at this great height with tremendous
energy for ii few minutes, or perhaps
nearly an hour, standing rigid and
erec.t, hissing, throbbing, booming, as if
thunder-storms were raging beneath
their roots, their sides roughened or
fluted like the furrowed boles of trees,
their tops dissolving in feathery
branches, while the irised spray, like
misty bloom, is at times blown aside,
revealing the massive shafts shining
against a background of pine-covered
hills. Some of them Kan more or less,
as if storm-bent, and. instead of being
round, are flat or fan-shaped, issuing
from irregular slits in silex pavements
with radiate structure, the Bunbeams
sitting through them in ravishing
splendor. Some are broad and round
headed like oaks; others are low and
bunchy, branching near the ground
like bushes; and a few are hollow in
the center like big daisies or water
So numeraus they are and varied,
nature seems to have gathered bhem
from all the world as specimens of her
rarest fountains, to show in one place
What she can do. Over 4,000 hot springs
have been counted in the park, and a
hundred geyser*; how many more there
are nobody knows.
Mineral Messes.
These valleys at the heads of the
great rivers may be regarded as lab
oratories and kitchens, in which, amid
a thousand retorts and pets, we may
see nature at work a chemist or cook,
i unningly compounding an infinite va
riety of mineral messes; cooking whole
mountains; boiling and steaming flinty
rocks to smooth paste and mush — yel
low, brown, red, pink, lavender, gray
and creamy white — making the most
beautiful mud in the world; and distil
ling the most ethereal essences. Many
of these pots and caldrons have been
boiling thousands of years.
Instead of holding limpid pale green
or azure water, other pots and craters
aie filled with scalding mud, which is
tossed up from three or four feet to
thirty feet. In sticky, rank-smelling
masses, with gasping, belching, thud
ding sounds, plastering the branches of
neighboring trees; every flask, retort,
hot spring and geyser has something
special in it, no two being the same in
temperature, color or composition.
Passing through many a mile of pine
and spruce woods, toward the center of
the park you come to the famous Yel
lowstone lake. It is about twenty miles
long and fifteen wide, and lies at a
height of nearly 8,000 feet above the
level of the sea, amid dense black for
ests and snowy mountains. Around its
winding, wavering shores, closely for
ested and picturesquely varied with
promontories and bays, the distance
is more than 100 miles. It is not very
deep, only from 200 to 300 feet, and
contains less water than the cele
brated Lake Tahoe of the California
Sierra, which is nearly the same .size,
lies at a height of 6,400 feet, and is
over 1,600 feet deep. But no other
lake in North America of equal area
lies so high as the Yellowstone, or
gives birth to so noble a river. The
terraces around its shores sihow that
at the close of the glacial period its
surface was about 160 feet higher than
i_ is now, and its area nearly twice as
gre-a t.
Millions of Trout.
It is full of trout, and a vast multi
tude of birds — swans, pelicans, geese,
ducks, cranes, herons, curlews, plovers,
snipe— feed in it and upon its shores;
and many forest animals come out of
the woods, and wade a little way in
shallow, sandy places to drink and look
about them and cool themselves in
the free flowing breezes.
The Absaroka mountains and the
Wind River plateau on the east and
south pour their gathered waters into
it, and the river issues from the north
side in a broad, smooth, stately cur
rent. For the first twenty miles its
course is in a level, sunny valley light
ly fringed with trees, through which
it flows in silvery reaches stirred into
spangles here and there by ducks and
leaping trout, making no sound save
a low whispering among the pebbles
and the dipping willows and sedges of
its banks. Then suddenly, as if pre
paring for hard work, it rushes eager
ly, impetuously forward, rejoicing in
its strength, breaks into foam-bloom,
and goes thundering down into the
Grand canon in two magnificent falls,
100 and 300 feet high.
The canon is so tremendously wild
and impressive that even these great
falls cannot hold your attention. It
Is about twenty miles long and 1.000
feet deep — a weird, unearthly-looking
gorge of jagged, fantastic architecture,
and most brilliantly colored. Here the
Washburn range, forming the northern
rim of the Yellowstone basin, made up
mostly of beds of rhyollte decomposed
by the action of thermal waters, has
been cut through and laid open to view
by the river; and a famous section it
has made. It is not the depth or the
shape of the canon, nor the waterfall,
r.or the green and gray river chanting
its brave song as it goes foaming on
its way. that most impresses the ob
server, but the colors of the decomposed
volcanic rocks.
In All Colors.
The walls of the canon from top to
bottom burn in a perfect glory of color,
confounding and dazzling when the sun
is shining — white, yellow, green, blue,
vermillion, and various other shades
of red indefinitely blending. All the
earth hereabouts seems to be paint.
Millions of tons of it He in sight, ex
posed to wind and weather as if of no
account, yet marvelously fresh and
bright, fast colore not to be washed
out or bleached out by either sunshine
or storms. The effect is so novel and
awful, we imagine that even a river
might be afraid to enter such a place.
The park is easy of access. Locomo
tives drag you to its northern boundary
at Cinnabar, and horses and guides do
the rest. From Cinnabar you will be
whirled in coaches along the foaming
Gardiner river to Mammoth Hot
Springs; thence through woods and
meadows, gulches and ravines along
branches of the Upper Gallatin, Madi-
son, and Fire-hole rivers to the main
geyser basins; thence over the conti
nental divide and back again, spruce,
and flr woods to the magnificent Yel
lowstone lake, along Its northern shore
to the outlet, down the river to tho
falls and Grand canon, and thence back
through the woods to Mammoth Hot
Springs and Cinnabar; stopping here
and there at the so-called points of
interest among the geysers, springs,
paint-pots, mud volcanoes, etc.. Where
you will be allowed a few minutes or
hours to saunter over the sinter pave
ments, watch the play of a few of the
geysers, and peer into some of the most
beautiful and terrible of the craters
and pools.
No scalping Indians will you see. The
Blackfeet and Bannocks that once
roamed here are gone; so are the old
beaver-catchers, the Coulters and
Brldgers, with all their attractive
buckskin and romances. There are
several bands of buffaloes in the park,
but you will not thus cheaply in tourist
fashion see them nor many of the other
large animals hidden In the wilderness.
Geysers Attract Everybody.
Geysers, however, are the main ob
jects, and as soon as they come In
sight other wonders are forgotten. All
gather around the crater of the one
that is expected to play first. During
the eruptions of the smaller geysers,
such as the Beehive and Old Faithful,
though a little frightened at first, all
welcome the glorious show with enthu
The largest and one of the most
wonderfully beautiful of the springs is
the Prismatic, which the guide will be
sure to show you. With a circumfer
ence of 300 yards, it is more like a
lake than a spring. The water is pure
deep blue in the center, fading to green
on the edges, and its basin and the
slightly terraced pavement about it are
astonishingly bright and varied in col
or. This one of the multitude of Yel
lowstone fountains is of itself object
enough for a trip across the continent.
Near the Prismatic spring is the
great Rxcelsior geyser, which is said
to throw a column of boiling water
sixty to seventy feet in diameter to a
height of from 50 to 300 feet, at irreg
ular periods. This is the greatest of
all the geysers yet discovered any
where. The Firehole river, which
sweeps past it, is, at ordinary stages, a
stream about 100 yards wide and three
feet deep; but when the geyser is in
eruption, so great is the quantity of
water discharged that the volume of
the river is doubled, and it is rendered
too hot and rapid to be forded.
Geysers are found in many other
volcanic regions— in Iceland, New Zea
land. Japan, the Himalayas, the East
ern Archipelago, South America, the
Azores, and elsewhere; but only in Ice
land, New Zealand and this Rocky
mountain park do they display their
gtandest forms, and of these three
famous regions the Yellowstone is eas
ily first, both in the number and in
the size of its geysers. The greatest
height of the column of the Great Gey
ser of Iceland actually measured was
212 feet, and of the Strokhr 162 feet.
In New Zealand, the Te Pueia, at
Lake Taupo; the Waikite, at Rotorna,
and two others are said to lift their
waters occasionally to a height of 100
feet, while the celebrated Te Tarata,
at Rotomahana. sometimes lifts a boil
ing column twenty feet in diameter to
a height of sixty feet. But all these
are far surpassed by the Excelsior.
Few tourists, however, will see the Ex
celsior in action, or a thousand other
interesting features of the park that
lie beyond the wagon roads and ho
tels. The regular trips — from three to
five days — -are too short. Nothing can
be done well at a speed of forty miles
a day.
Tremendous Volcanic Forces.
Nowhere else in the Rocky mountains
have the volcanic forces been so fierce
ly busy. More than 10,000 square miles
hereabouts have boon covered to a
de/pth of at least 5,000 feet with mater
ial spouted from chasms and craters
during the tertiary period, forming
broad sheets of basalt, andesite, rhyo
llte, etc., and marvelous masses of
ashes, sand, cinders, and stones now
consolidated into conglomerates, charg
ed with the remains of plants and ani
mals that lived in the calm, genial
periods that separated the volcanic out
Perhaps the most interesting and tell
ing of these rocks, to the hasty tour
ist, are those that make up the mass of
Amethyst mountain. On its north side
ii piesents a section 2,000 feet high of
roughly stratified beds of sand, ashes,
and conglomerates coarse and fine,
forming the untrimmed edges of a won
derful set of volumes lying on their
sides — books a million years old, well
bound, miles in size, with full-page
illustrations. On the ledges of this one
section we see trunks and stumps of
fifteen or twenty ancient forests ranged
one above another, standing where they
grew, or prostrate and broken like the
pillars of ruined temples in desert sands
— a forest fifteen or twenty stories high,
the roots of each spread above the tops
of the next beneath it, telling wonder
ful tales of the bygone centuries, with
their winters and summers, growth and
death, fire, ice and flood.
There were giants in those days. The
largest of the standing opal and agate
stumps and prostrate sections of the
trunks are from tw-o or three to fifty
feet in height or length, and from five
to ten feet in diameter: and so perfect
is the petrifaction that the annual
rings and ducts are clearer and more
easily counted than those of living
trees, countless centuries of burial hav
ing brightened the records instead of
blurring them. They show that the
winters of the tertiary period gave as
decided a check to vegetable growth as
do those of the present time. Some
trees favorably located grew rapidly,
increasing twenty inches in diameter in
as many years, while others of the
same species, on poorer soil or over
shadowed, increased only two or three
inches in the same time.
Scitn- Queer Remains.
Among the roots and stumps on the
old forest floors we find the remains
of ferns and bushes, and the seeds and
leaves of trees like those now growing
on the southern Alleghanies— such as
magnolia, sassafras, laurel, linden,
persimmon, ash, alder, dogwood. Study
ing the lowest of these forests, the
soil it grew on and the deposits it is
i buried in, we see that it was rich in
species, and flourished in a genial,
sunny climate. When Its stately trees
were in their glory, volcanic fires broke
forth from chasms and craters, like
larger geysers, spouting ashes, cinders,
stones and mud, which fell on the
doomed forest in tremendous floods,
and like heavy hail and snow; sifting!
hurling through the leaves and branch
es, choking the streams, covering the
ground, crushing bushes and ferns,
rapidly deepening, packing around the
trees and breaking them, rising higher
until the topmost boughs of the giants
were buried, leaving not a leaf or twig
in sight, so complete was the desola
tion. At last the volcanic storm began
to abate, the fiery soil settled; mud
floods and boulder floods passed over
It, enriching it, cooling it; rains fell and
mellow sunshine, and it became fer
tile and ready for another crop. Birds,
and the winds, and roaming animals
brought seeds from more fortunate
woods, and a new forest grew up on the
top of the buried one. Centuries of
genial growing seasons passed. The
seedling trees with strong outreaching
branohes became giants, and spread a
broad leafy canopy over the gray land.
The sleeping subterranean fires again
awake and shake the mountains, and
every leaf trembles. The old craters,
with perhaps new ones, are opened, and
immense quantities of ashes, pumice,
and cinders are again thrown into the
sky. The sun, shorn of his beams,
glows like a dull red ball, until hidden
in sulphurous clouds. Volcanic snow,
hall, and floods fall on the new forest,
burying it alive, like the one beneath
Its' roots. Then come another noisy
band of mud floods and boulder floods
mixing, settling, enriching the new
ground, more seeds, quickening sun-
shine and showers, and a third noble
niagonlia forest is carefully raised on
the top of the second. And so on.
Forest was planted above forest and
destroyed, as if Nature were ever re
penting- and undoing- the work she had
so Industriously done. But, of course,
this destruction was creation, progress
in the march of beauty through death.
The Glacial Wluter.
After the forest times and fire times
had passed away, and the volcanic fur
naces were banked and held In abey
ance, another great change occurred In
the history of the park. The glacial
winter came on. The sky -was again
darkened, not with dust and ashes, but
with snow flowers which fell In glorious
abundance, piling' deeper, deeper, slip
ping from the overladen , heights in
booming avalanches suggestive of their
growing power, Compacting into glac
iers, they flowed forth, meeting and
welding into a ponderous, ice-mantle
that covered all the landscape perhaps
a mile deep; wiping off forests, grind
ing, sculpturing, fashioning the com
paratively featureless lava beds into
the beautiful rhythm of hill and dale
and ranges of mountains we behold to
day; forming basins for lakes, channels
for streams, new soils for forests, gar
dens, and meadows. While this ice
work was g>)ing on, the slumbering vol
canic flres were boiling the subterra
nean waters, ami with curious chemis
try decomposing the rocks, making
beauty in the darkness; these forces,
seemingly antagonistic, working har
moniously together. How wild their
meetings on the surface were we may
imagine. When the glacier period be
gan, geysers and hot springs were play
ing in grander volume, it may be, than
those of today. The glaciers flowed
over while they spouted and thundered,
carrying away their fine sinter and
travertine structures, and shortening
their mysterious channels.
The glacial winter has passed away
like the ancient summers and fire
periods, though in the chronology of
the geologist all these times' are recent.
Only small residual glaciers on the cool
northern slopes of the highest moun
tains are left of the vast all-embrac
ing ice-mantle, as solfataras and gey
sers are all that are left of the ancient
Perhaps you have already said that
you have seen enough for a lifetime.
But before you go away you shoulel
spend at least one day and a night on
a mountain ton, for a last general
calming-, settling view. Mount Wash
burn is a good one for the purpose, be
cause- it stands in the middle of' the
park, is unincumbered with other peal«
and is so easy of access that the climb
to its summit is only a saunter.

at 101, compared with 94 at this time last
year. As the government crop report on
Monday is expected to be favorable, there
was a little selling pressure put on the mar
ket for a short time after the opening, re
sulting in a decline to 84% c. This was re
moved and buying stimulated somewhat by
New York advices to the effect that foreign
ers were good buyers there against liberal ac
ceptances of yesterday's offerings, and tho
price slowly recovered to 85c, the high point
of the day.
The local and Northwest wheat movement
rather favored the bulls. Minneapolis and
Duluth reported 171 cars, against 199 last
week, and 248 a year ago. Chit ago receipts,
45 cars. The additions to contract stocks to
day were lighter than of late, amounting to
but 61,000 bu, including 28 cars from regular
sources, and 20 cars and 16,000 bu from mix
ing houses.
After the advance to 85c in July, the market
gradually sold off again to SP/i® 84% c, under
realizing, and for the rest of the session did
not move fac. either way. September fol
lowed July closely in the matter o£ fluctua
There was a little revival of interest in May
which has been practically at a standstill all
the week, and a number of trades were made
in it, at ft.Cti, a cent above yesterday's price.
Leiter's sales of 200,000 bu to go abroad to
day, a big business considering the holiday
season, was apparently a factor in this ad
vance. The market was almost at a stand
still towards the close. July closed at 84%@
84% c, a shade under yesterday's final price.
Corn was easier on moderate amount of
trading. May ranged from 29% cto 29 5 , B e, and
closed %c lower at 29%;'. Oats were very dull.
May ranged from 25% c to 20% c. and closed
a shade lower at 25%(&'25^4c. Provisions were
steady within a narrow range. May pork
closed 5c higher at $9.87 1 « ! ; May lard. 2%c
higher at ?5.20, and May ribs, 2%c higher
at ?5.20.
Estimated receipts Monday: Wheat, 100

MINNEAPOLIS. April 9.— The local wheat
market opened higher and strong this morn
ing with the trade generally trying to catch
up with the advances made during the holi
day at Chicago and New York. First price
for May was 97c against 9Cc, Thursday's
close, weakened immc-diately, lost %c, and
ruled rather quiet but steady up to mid-ses
sion. The news of the day was rather meager
as to commercial matters. Commercial gossip
was meager for the reason that all European
markets are closed.
The character of the trading today was
generally of the evening up sort. This la
usual on a Saturday, but it was more pro
nounced today pending political developments.
All crop news was bearish in tone save that
from California, which siill maintains that the
outlook is very roor indeed. May wheat open

NEW YORK, April 9. — Operators in stgeks
maintained a strictly waiting attitude today.
The extreme variation in prices reached a
point or over in a good many stocks, and the
market took on some show of animation in
the first hour on the upward movement, but
the purely fictitious character of this ad
vance was demonstrated by the relapse in
the second hour.
The day's net changes are hardly percepti
ble In many cases and show an indiscriminate
mixture of gains and losses.
The market was without any more signifi
cance than yesterday. Total sales of all
stocks were less than 11X1,000 shares. The fact
that the London exchange was closed left
New York without initiative from that quar
ter. London operators were apparently not
eager to avail themselves of the opportunity
of trading on the New York exchange and
orders by cable were of small amount, though
they were sufficient to aid the first hour's
advance. In spite of the Inactivity of the
market, further gold to the amount of
$750,000 was engaged for imoprt today.
Total sales of stocks today were 99.200
shares, including: 11.520 Burlington, 3,115
Northern Pacific, 3.005 Rock Island, 12,375
1 St. Paul, 12.111 Union Pacific, 3,115 U. P., D.
& G., 24,275 Sugar.
