Rocky Mountain News : The com

the Denver & Hio Gruixlu railroad as
far as Glonwood Springs is nn event of
more thiin passing moment. Many in

radiating rails. Not only the specific

"loves not man the lews but nature
more" the wonderful region of moun

The writer reckons it his rare good
fortune to have been a passenger on the
first regular train ever run between
Leodvillo and Glonwood Springs. Last
Thursday morning the train moved
quietly out of the "Cloud City , " and an
event in the annals of Colorado's ad
vancement worthy of the most enthusi
astic demonstrations passed silently into
AN" UNKNOWN LAND.
What there Is of scenic interest be
tween Leadvillo and Ilcd CHIT is well
known , for the railroad has connected
| * thcKo two places for several years , but
; all that lies beyond , except to the few
i , adventurous and bardy ones , is an un
known land. A land , however , that
cannot long remain unknown , for hero
' . are the rivals in grandeurtho superiors
j in variety of the justly famed canyons
of the Arkansas and ( iiinnis-on. The
j Eagle river canyon and the canyon of
\ t the Grand river present characteristics
[ entirely dissimilar , each being indi-
i vidual in its beauties , and both bearing
' , but slight resemblance to those they
Crossing the range at Tennessee pass
by n series of curves and grades little
less than marvelous , the road , by an
equally devious path , makes the descent
to Hod C'lilT. Shortly before this thriv
ing mining town is reached , at the head
of an immense bend , the traveller
catches a magnificent view of the
Mount of the Holy Cross , towering
above its lessor companion mountains ,
and bearing upon its bosom the symbol
which has a solemn and mysterious
meaning to all thinking men , whether
Christian or agnostic. The sight ol
this cross of snow suspended on a breast
of granite is a < fitting preparation for
the succession * of grand and sublime ,
solemn and impressive scones which
are to follow.
BAG Mi ItlVKIl CANON.
Beyond Red CHIT the Ktiglo rivei
canon opens to the view at first a com
paratively wide expanse , latter moro
narrow , walled in on each side by elilTs
of varicolored rocks whoso lofty and ap
parently insurmountable summits bear
the dark banners c > f the pine. Admira
tion and awe at this stupendous work o"
nature take possession of the mind ,
when suddenly those emotions are over
shadowed by wonder and almost incred
ulous surprise at the daring of man , foi
there above us on our right , perchet
like the nest of heaven-scaling eagles ,
rest the habitations of men ! There
are the shaft houses and abiding
places of adventurous miners , who ,
having climbed these clitTs , pick in
hand , have hero discovered rich veins
of the precious metal , which being
blasted from its matrix , is conveyed to
the railroad trrtok 2,000 foot below , by a
most ingenious system of tramways and
endless stool ropes. There is some
thing very impressive in the sight of
these frail clifT-porched dwellings , and
the shaft-penetrated tunnel-pierced
rock peaks Suggest irresistibly the
fabled cavernous labyrinths of Kor. "
Nowhere can the traveler find a moro
interesting and instructive Illustration
of mine methods than is hero presented
! by the shaft-scarred sides of Buttle
mountain and the pinnacle-perched
. . eyries of Englo River canon.
i The canon passed , one enters the val
ley of Eagle river. Quieter scenes of
pastoral and agricultural achievements
follow. Hero are comfortable ranch
houses surrounded by fields of grain ,
some of it now in process of Jiarvosting ;
there are herds of cattle feeding con
tentedly in natural pastures , while on
all sides are seen evidences of peace ,
prosperity and plenty. The Eagle
river , a beautiful stream , whoso bright
waters do not conceal the biight col
ored gravel of its bed , meanders through
the valley , adding to the beauty of tlio
Bcone and carrying with it the practical
benefits of irrigation , without which
the soil would produce nothing but vcg-
1 otatiou suitable for grazing purposes.

I waved a big trout at us us the train How

rend the fact that here the disciples of
i old I/aac Walton would find ample room
J and verge for plying their gentle craft.
ON THE OUANOK.
Gradually the valley narrows , high
J blulTs hem us in on the loft , the river is
J close to the track on the right , and its
f . fertile banks suddenly change into a
] tumbled , twisted , black and blasted ox-
S iiaiiHO of scoria. The few trees on the
hither side of the stream are also black ,
nn inheritance of fire , the waters under
| the black banks and reflecting the
1 blackened trees take on a swarthy hue
} a stygian picture ! Just beyond , a
distant glimpse of fertile country , and
the clear waters of the Eagle are lost in
the muddy current of the Grand and a
canon greater in extent and moro varied
in character than that of the Arkansas
opens before us. As the train speeds I
downward , the mountains on
the horizon behind us seem to
rise upward toward the zenith isIS
\ though the mlraclo of creation was
I being repeated before our eyes. Soon ,
j however , the distant mountains are
fc shut out and only the sky above , the
i river and track beneath and the clilTs
f around are visible , and hero begins u
I panorama kaleidoscopic in its over
J changing forms and colors , the wonder

I one who wished to tell others what ho
In places the effect is that of giant
Egyptian art and architecture. Vast
bastions of granite , strata on strata , rise
to n stupendous height , braced against
rock masses behind them infinitely
vaster. Suggestions of the Sphinx and
of the pyramids can bo caught in the
severe and gigantic rock-piled structures
' on every baud. ThcsQ are not made up
I of boulders , nor are they soliu
f . monoliths , like , those in the Royal
Gorge. On the contrary there are col
umns , bastions , ' buttresses , walls , pyra
mids , towers , turrets , oven statues , ol
, stratified stone , Cwith sharp cleavage
not in the least \vcathor-\vorn , present-
ing the appearance of Brobdlgnnglan
masonry , hence I use the phrase "rock-
pik-d structures" advisedly and as best
descriptive of what there exists.
A IMCTIMIK IN O LOWING COI.OIIS.
But the kaleidoscope is shaken and
the rock prices are rearranged. The
ofTeet is startling. Wo have left Egypt ,
with her shales of gray and her frown
ing , massive and gigantic farms. Wo
are in a region of glowing colors , whore
UIP vermillion , the maroon , the green
and the yellow abound and mingle and
contrast. What strange country was
the prototype of this ? Ah ! yonder is
something characteristic a terraced
pyramid 1 bounded with brilliant and
varied colors the teocoll of the Aztecs.
Whirling around a headland of glowIng -
Ing red rock , which it seems ought to
be called " Flamingo point , " wo are in

more lofty than that of Trinity , towers
moro marvelous than Pisa's leaning
wonder , columns more curious than that

inimitable ! indescribable !
In a moment darkness and the in
creased rumble of wheels then light
and another marvelous view. Wo haVe
pa-wed tunnel No. 1 , the portcullis ;
darkness again for a moment , then the
blue sky above us. Wo have entered

mvAU ) TIIK uovAr , aoiiai : .
But does the canon of the Grand rival
the Royal George ?
It does. But "one star difTcreth from
another in glory. " The two canons are
entirely distinct in character. If I
might bo allowed to borrow an illustra
tion of what I mean from the stage , I
would say that the Royal Gorge is
tragic , the Canon of the Grand melo
dramatic. Some people like tragedy ,
others melodrama. Tlio Canon of the
Grand is a most magnificent melodrama
in stone. It abounds in lights and
shades ; it is strong , it is great ,
it is grand , it is also beautiful ,
cheerful and oven merry , but above all
it is spectacular. In one place the red
rook is so permeated with mica that
it glistens like a transformation scene.
This is a stage olToct but cannot justly
be criticised , for , unlike other stage
managers , Nature always sots her scenes
with due regard to proportion , per
spective and the true relations of the
picture. There is nothing little about
either of the canons , that of Grand
river , however , being the longer of the
two. The question us to which is the
greater is open to argument , and any
man in order to discuss the question in
telligently will have to see both before
he can bo admitted to the happy family
of embroiled and raging combatants.

Naught elso. Her scarf she gathers tight

She stops and listens ;
A dc.id leaf rustled that was all
Well , maiden prldu will como at call ;
She will not let the tear drop fall
It stands mid glistens.
She turns but hark ! the step she knows !
The branches part , anil swinging , close ;
What penance now on him imiioso
The trj st who misses I
She can't bo hard , though sere she tries ,
For love will melt through loving eyes ,
And all the chilling words that rise
Are crushed with kisses.

Senator Hiuvley's marriage , accord
ing to a Washington correspondent ,
will bo the first of a senator since the
matrimonial epidemic began , which
has affected every other branch of gov
ernment since this administration came
in in 1885. The president , two mem
bers of his cabinet ( Manning and Lamar -
mar , for Secretary Manning was mar
ried not long before the inauguration of
his chief , ono justice of the supreme
court ( Judge Matthews ) , several mem
bers of the house of representatives , in
cluding Long , of Massachusetts ; Ira
Davenport , of New York ; Glover , of
Missouri ; and McMillan , of Tennessee ,
has each brought a bride to Washing
ton within the last two and a
half years , and most of the marriages to
which reference is made have occurred
within eighteen months past. On this
list , probably the most noted of the kind
in almost any group of men who were
at any ono period called at the same
time in similar capacities to those
named with our government , may be
added the sons and daughters of gov
ernment officials , including members of
the supreme court and of the two houses
of congress , who have been married.
Among them have been the daughter1'
of Justice Miller , of the supreme court ;
the son of .Tudgo McArthur , of the su
preme court of the district of Columbia ;
the daughter of the late Senator Miller
of California ; the late Senator Logan's
son , and the daughters of Senator
Eustis , Senator Cnmden , Senator Harrison
risen , Senator Colquitt , Representative
Cundtill and Representative Spriggs.
A Disturbed Bridegroom.
Now York Sun : Curious scenes in
railroad travel where the actors are a
newly married couple are frequently
mot with , but ono took place on the
southern express that left Jersey City
recently which is somewhat out of the
usual course of events. When the train
drew up at Newark a man and woman ,
evidently a newly married t > airgot on the
train for Philadelphia. All of the other
cars being full , the couple had to find
seats in the smoking car , where they
comfortably settled themselves after
putting a carpet-bag and several pack
ages in the rack overhead. The bride
groom then began to give her his car-
nest and undivided attention , with a
view to making the trip as pleasant as
possible. The man was dressed in a
pair of trousers of the bedtick order ,
witli coat and waistcoat of a pea-green
hue. From his waistcoat dangled a
largo and massive watch chain , nnd
around his neck was a bandana hand
kerchief , tied in a knot. Nothing was
wanted to complete his toilet but a col
lar , and this was missing. The girl was
dressed in a calico gown and a largo
hat , with peacock leathers in it , set
saucily on nor head.
After the train had gotten well under
way several passengers noticed the pe
culiar actions of the man. His face
was Hushed , his eyes snapped fire , and
it was evident that pome trouble had
befallen the pair. The man suddenly
aro-so and began to take off his coat and
waistcoat. Then ho pulled down his
suspenders and was in the act of remov
ing his trousers when a passenger
called the attention of the brnkomun to
his conduct. Before the conductor
could bo summoned ho drew a revolver
and commenced to emphasize his re
marks to his spouse by flourishing it in
By this time the occupants of the car
became very nervous and began to edge
toward the 'door. The conductor finally
succeeded in persuading the groom to
subside and put up his pistol. The
cause of all the trouble was the mis
placement of the finances of the bridal
tour. Things looked quito serious for a
time and rather discouraging for the
trip. At last the conductor suggested
that the pockets < of his linen duster ,
which had been overlooked , bo searched ,
and there was found the cause of the
unpleasant episode. The groom was
then seized with a sudden paroxysm of
delight , and , throwing his arms
around the girl's nock , began to kiss
and hug her vigorously. Ho then pro
duced a black bottle and invited the
passengers to take a whack with him to
celebrate his good fortune.
Result of n Matrimonial "Ail. "
Lincoln Journal : It is related of a
young mannameless hero forever moro ,
who recently came to Lincoln from Kan
sas City , that ho inserted an advertise
ment in a matrimonial paper at the lat
ter place olToring special inducements
- to any refined and intelligent young
lady who would consent to become his
wife. Ho opened a correspondence
with a girl there , and thought ho was
a doing a brilliant stroke of business by
writing his letters under an assumed
- name. Tlio fair correspondent wrote
excellent letters and he hocamo quito
- enraptured over hor. Ho arranged to
meet her at Kansas City , and ono day
this week ho arrayed himself in purple
- and line linen and went down there and

gentle reader. It was his sister who
had flourished under an assumed name ,
and it is hard to say which of the two
thought most seriously of committing

Now York Letter : To the one of our
resorts there came ten years ago , a dig
nified southern general , with his wife ,
uid a daughter so lovely that all who
saw her were charmed. The first few
veoks the southern visitors were quito
exclusive and frowned upon any at-
.empts of the citizens of the north to got
icqualnted with them. They came sim-
> ly for a c'lango of air and did not career
or society. A northern general , with
lis family , stopped at the same house ,
md there was a son in that family ,
rhoro almost always is a son in a north
ern family when there is a pretty girl
tround. The two generals were intro
duced , but for weeks they only passed
the time of day , and were so dignified
that it was a wonder they did not break
their backs. The lady from the south
became interested in the young gentle
man of the north , and before anybody
liad realized that a calamity had be
fallen the two families they were headiind
ears in lovo. The southern general was
mndand that made the northern general
mad , and there wore stormy times about
the cool resort on the lake. The old
southerner stamped his feet and said
they should never marry , nnd the north
ern general kept cool and said if the
folks wanted to marry ho didn't
Joung any reason why they shouldn't ,
nnd as ho was in love with the girl too ,
and would give all ho possessed for her as
a daughter , ho swore that ho would see
that she was properly eloped with , that
old confederate could go further. The
old confederate said ho would shoot up
enough Yankees fora mess if they tried
any such wooden nutmeg game on his
family , and so they had it until the sum
mer was gone , and well , you know how
it is yourselves. The young people
coaxed , and finally the southern general
wild they could do as they pleased , and
they were married. To-day there are
four boys and two girls that have como
to bless that union of the north and
south. Two of the boys have been
named after two of the great
est confederate generals , and two have
been named after two great northern
generals , and several months of the
summer you can see that old confederate
grandfather in Wisconsin , the guest of
the northern grandfather , playing with
those six youngsters , and several
months of winter the northern general
is visiting the south to see those chil
dren growand it is a grand sight to see
the two grandfathers bonding over a
cradle , looking at the youngest child ,
and arguing as to what grand parent
the child resembles. The old fellows
are good friends ; the southern general
thinks his northern son-in-law is.ono
of God's noblemen , and the northern
general knows that his beautiful
daughter-in-law is the sweetest woman
on earth. Ten thousand such weddings
between the northern and southern
young people would forever silence
those who may wish to ECO the two sec
tions nt enmity.
