The eld cathedral tow ns, universities, homes of the poets, and historic places will be visited, while it the same time will be carried on a course of side reading iu hUtory, art, and poetry intended to hold the interest.

F. A. HULL & CO., Successors to Hull & Rogers. 181 Mil in St. Danbury. Famous Natural Bridge. A VISITOR ltESCKIISES VIRGINIA S GREAT MARVEL. From The Atlanta (Ga.) .Journal 'Tliat is where they let down the rope to the boy. He jumped from that little ledge you see away up there that bird just 11 -jw past it ! and caught the rope as it swung toward him." We looked up, stretched our heads back until our necks ached. "lo that story really true?" "The old settlers around here say so. I'lie boy was a student from Wahington- and Lee, which is not very far from here. Of course, the account of the feat, usual ly found in Fifth Headers, is a good deal ex'tgyrated. There was no crowd watching while he climbed, as the story SHVf; only a few of his friends were with him ; but it is true that a boy really ditl e'iuib nearly to the top of the bridge. You see that ledge up there almost und r tlit'hrcltV When he reached that p!ace he could climb no further on gecount of the arching over the bridge. Then they say he looked back to see how to climb down again. You know it's a fact that you can climb up much easier than down." there may be a deeper fignifl cance to those words, I thought. "When you look downward everything appears to be smoother. So there the boy hung nearly 200 feet from the ground, unable to move one way or the other." We looked again up to that tiny pro jection not much bigger than the bowl of a spoon, it seemed, from that great distance. It was awful. (Later, when we weut to the top of the bridge, we looked down; it was frightful.) V.'e were standing under the shadow of that fearful uooiiuments of the Builder who knows no limits, the bridge, whose walls are mountains and whose buttresses are peaks. The ravine is so deep the sun shines in only about noon. And all this rnagDilicence of architecture royally thrown away on a mere wading stream ! ts fish no bigger than minnows. But the Builder's quarry, likewise, knows no limits. DISAPPOINTMENT AT FIRST VIEW. The approach to the bridge is by a nar row, tortuous, rapidly decending path. A small stream tumbles down the mount ain beside us all the way. The deep foli. age of the trees keeps us hidden from a view of the bridge, until a sharp turn to the right suddenly brings us up almost under it. But the first sight, perhaps, is a little disappointing. The mind has to take time, to adjust Itself to these enormous dimensions. As we approach it, at length stand just under the bridge itself, and look upward, perhaps even than we are still a little disappointed, until sud denly we are startled by a faint crying flock of swallows flying under the bridge ; then we begin to comprehend its dizzy altitude The approach is not so impressive as the opposite view on account of the dip ping of the arch on that side. To walk a hundred feet furthur on, passing under the bridge ; and then look back at it, one catches the curves of its enormous con vexity, and the lift of its span. On this side, also, the two mountains that but tress the bridge rapidly rise for some distance further on ; consequently the ravine walls are much higher. All these things combine to make the latter view of the bridge very impressive Cathedral wall nearly 300 feet high, straight as the side of a house, buttress ed and turreted, towers up on one side Across the ravine from it, overhanging the abyss below, is a little ledge of rock not ten feet square, Pulpit Bock. Here one may stand and look below if he can and try to realize the horror of that boy when he " caught the faint echoes of the people beneath him shouting to him to jump for the rope." In an old Virginia history there is a statement that when tbe boy was drawn up his hair had turned white. ALL ROCK, SOLID AND GH031LY. Nothing grows down the sides of this ravine. It is all rock, solid and ghostly If one were to slip, he would strike against nothing on bis way until he struck the ground. There is scarcely place for a bird to alight. How did the boy climb it? The story goes that be had a knife and cut footnotes between the rock rims. And it is narrow, that little silver run ning ravine; just room enough for its brook and a footpath beside it. It is narrow and cold under the shadow of these eternal ramparts. When birds fly down Into it thev merely drop; there Is not room to use their wings. They spread them out to break the fall, anc drop down lite leaves.

Manufactured at Bridgeport, Coon were spilling oyer one of its sides its leap would strike against the opposite wall. Above, Nature has so coyly softened the edge of the hideous precipice, so hidden it with blossoming trees and mossy turf, that a dreamer walk ing there some day would unexpectedly feel a sharp slip of his feet, would catch out at a tree, a bit of grass the sudden flashlight of a yawniDg abyss death ! One comes shouting and laughing down the steps toward Pulpit Rock sud denly stops himself aghast, quivering on the very edge of the frightful drop. In 1779 a great mass of rock was split off from the arch by the freezing of the water in its crevices, and was hurled be low, crashing into a million fragments. The ground is littered over with bits of rock, with here and there a boulder half embedded in the soil. There hangs on the left of the arch as one approaches another mass just ready to fall ; a wide crack extends from the top of the hill almost down to the ground. Halt a hill yawns! A eclumn of earth and and frightful rocks half as big as freight cars stand up there in the air, held back by a few clods, a slender stcne, a root or two. When it falls one power exists that may clear it away the river. WASHINGTON'S INITIALS. G. W." There it is : his own auto graph Washington's. It la one of the ereat "prize boxes" of the bridge. It is cut deep into the rock about thirty feet above the ground. Several other names are cut above this, but they were not put there by climbers ; some engin eers placed ladders against the rock and thus reached the point. The UG. W.' is said to be really genuiae. The Old Settler vouches for this fact also. The "W." is quite plain, but the "G." is somewhat uncertain. Other points of interest are Lost River, an underground stream whose running can be heard by stooping down close to a hole in the side of the moun tain; Saltpetre Cave, a new crevce under a large ledge of rck, which "fur nished nitru to the soldiers of 1812 ; the Keeper of the Bridge, a perfect profile of a very old man near the arch of the bridge. A glimpse of the rushing wat ers of Lost River can be seen through the hole in the hill. It is perfectly clear and cold, and as yure as if it had been filtered. Over the hole, cut into the stone, by whom no one knows, is the le gend: "He who drinks here shall re turn." Our party felt doubly sure of returning, for we drank of the water unwittingly, and saw tbe words only afterward. ' What caused the bridge? We cannot fail to ask it as we gaze up at the tremen dous mass. It is unreasonable to sup pose that it is to-day in the same form that it had "in the beginning." Was the entire ravine once a long and tor tuous cave? Did the little creek rip pling along beside us throughout the ages, stretching so far back tbat we Lf -g. FALL ARRIV AL OF DRESS GOODS!

CATARRH MEANS DANGER, Because lit unchecked it may lead di rectlv to consumption. Catarrh is caused by impure blood. This fact is fully established. Therefore, it is useless to try to cure cartarrh by outward applica tions or inhalants. The true way to cure catarrh is to purify the blood. Hood's sarsaparilla, the great blood purifier, cures catarrh by its power to drive out all imnuritiesSfrom tbe blood. Thous ands of people testify that they have been perfectly and permanently cured of catarrh by Hood's sarsaparilla. qASTOZUA. ShafM- iinnla aigtwtura ai DEHSOW , BE YOUR OWN JUDGE.
