tlio Union Pnclfic-Stepenson coaching
party nrrlvca at the Yellowstone the
following Monday evening1. From
Omulm to the park wns a most enjoya
ble trip , und every place of interest
along the route was designated by that
piononr stage man , Colonel James
Stephenson , while Clnronco Brown and
Colonel J. A. S. Rood , of the Union
Pacific , busied themselves in pointing
out the Bconory along the famous
route. Leaving Omaha , and for a dis
tance of nearly six hundred miles , wo
were wheeled through the Inviting
ntrrlcultural district of Nebraska.
Largo Holds ot corn abounded in every
direction as far as the eye could roach ,
nnd shocks and stacks of small grain
dotted the Holds. It is ovldont that the
homo demand of thcso products will not
only bo supplied , but that Sioux City
can rest assured that she will have
nmplo material for her corn hive. It is
eafo to state that the general grain
viold of Nebraska this year will bo
equal to any of Jts predeccss
in average , while the ncreajro Is much
larger than in any preceding year.
When the western boundary of Ne
braska ia crossed It appears as if all the
olomontH of civilization and enterprise
HAD 1IUKN LEFT HKiriNO.
For miles and miles you travel through
nrid lands as void of vegetation as the
closortof Atacama. It grows somewhat
monotonous , hut as wo darted ever the
vast prairies , and now und anon shot
through a mountain gorge several his
torical places were reached. First was
Fort Steolc , a point near Rnwlins"Wyo. ,
whore the bluo-coats formerly held
forth , and about which there hangs
much undeveloped history of a criminal
character. The fort is no longer occu
pied by the regulars , and , like Babylon ,
wild beasts are making their homes
within its walls. The skull of a human
being , possibly that of a once "way
ward' ' Indian , is stationed on a post in
the center of the barracks , and It is
enid that this was used in early days to
terrorize the savages. At night it was
placed about a quarter of a mile from
the p.ist in a gprgo , through which ac
cess was furnished the Indians under
cover of the shrubbery , and a miniature
lamp with a crimson globe was
PLACED INfclDE THE SKULL.
The red light , visible only where the
eyes properly belonged , brought out
many an arrow from the quiver , and
many an Indian is said to have , lied
with fright after having driven an ar
row at it without effect , believing that
it might bo an advance guard of his
Another stretch of country is passed
and Rock Springs is reached. ' This
country , though apparently worthless ,
abounds with , coal , much of the pro
duct of which dispels the frigid atmosphere -
phoro of many a llro-siilo in the city of
Omaha. It was at this place that the
terrible Chinese massacrco occurred.
Rock Springs is also a Wyoming hivin-
lot , but the indications are that it will
at no distant day bo the metropolis of
thordistrict comprising the highlands
of the west. Next we found purselves
creeping through the mountains at an
altitude of 10,000 feot. Here is where
the scenery of the Rockies begins to
appear in all Its grandour. One mo
ment you are being propelled through
n , tunnel enclosed by huge rocks , the
next you are rounding a curve with
mountains thousands of font in heighten
on ono side and a yawning chasm below
on the other. This is a source of great
enjoyment to the "way-backs , " butte
to one that is making the initial trip
it is anything but pleasant. An approach
preach of this character lands the tour
ist in Idaho. . ,
Idaho , in Indian parlance , signifies
"Gem of the Mountains. " Judging
from that portion of the territory
traversed by the Union Pacilic it is a
gem in crude form. But , as regards
the scenery. It perhaps surpasses that
of any district in tlio mundane sphere.
The mountains , with their receding in
clines and lofty peaks present an Im
posing sight ' to the eye , while the huge
barren rocks'strongly contrast with the
timid violuts and green foliage that
bloom and fade in the valleys and bo-
eido the mountain streams below.
Beaver Canon , a small hamlet at the
base of the main range of the Rocky
mountains , is now reached. This is
the place whore the Pullman palace car
was abandoned , < ind the tourists were
placed on board the gay Con con'
utagcs. Attached to each were

that awaited the command of the driver
to "Tako-or-up. " The stages used on
this occasion were those of the Weston
Stage line outflt , busking under the
cognomens of "James Stephonson" amr
"Thomas L. Kimball. " The party
dined nt the hotel , and while the coach
WHS being prepared for an ovorlanil
journey to tlio Yellowstone , atrip was
made about the city. In just ono hour
after the train steamed into
the station Colonel James Stophotibon's
clarion tones pierced the mountaii
air as ho mounted the vohlolo bearing
his name and yelled "all aboard.1
Beaver Canyon is about ono hundroi
miles from tlio low basin of the Yollow-
Btono , and the territory intervening is
anything but densely inhabited. The
distance being 100 miles , a two days
drive was required to snan the gap be
tween the designated points of civilian
tion , Leaving Beaver Canon , after i
drive of twenty miles , the party stoppoi
for dinner at a beautiful spout in the
famous Camus moadowH. Though at ai
attitude of 8,000 feet the atmojphoro
was delightful , and thu meadow grassei

Owing to the pleasant surroundings am
tlio fact that tlio Btago horses need roa
us well as the tourists , it was decided t
remain that night where the tents were
spread. After luncheon wo porambu
luted about the campus , cacortod by
Colonel Stephnnson , who took purlieu
lar pnins to designate every point o
interest. Several export marksmoi
wore among the party , among whom
was Dr. W. O. Smousn , of DCS Moines
The "Icfll-or-ouro" man shouldered hi

n n consignment of prairlo chickens
hat helped to mnko up n sumptuous
meal on that evening.
Sundny morning another start was
nndo nnd n twenty-five milo drive
brought us to the Snnko rlvor.nn amber
stream noted especially for its intricate
vimlings. ' This is the midway point
jotwoon Beaver canon and the Yellow
stone park. Our camping utensils were
igaln unfurled arid n sumptuous repast
vns served. A ttoo of a few hours was
made during which time the tourists
succeeded in pulling in n string of
speckled trout that would make the tra
ditional lone fisherman green with envy.
\mong the gentler sox that constituted
; lie party , Miss Millie Stephenson

by bringing into camp some line speci
mens of brook trout. And still another
surprise was enjoyed , when another
wing of the partv returned from a short
trip up the mountains with the flank of
nn olic. They did not acquire
the crodid of slaying the
leet-footod nnimlil , but they
wasted of their ability to mnko n fnvor-
nble impression upon the mountaineer.
At this poin't Messrs. Cnldwell , O'Uon-
nclland Kooch , n trio of pioneers , who
remain in chnrgo of the way-station
during the summer season , tendered
their hospitality , and bolter and more
courteous treatment never was received.
These gentlemen make n business of es
corting tourists through the mountains
and around the impregnable forests.
They have resided on Snnlco river for
nearly a quarter of a century , and are
familiar with every stream , mountain
and point of interest to the tourists
throughout the west. In the bosoms of
the Hturdv mountaineers wo found
hearts temfor yet stern. They know
nothlncf'of the busy world , never soon

of their dog , horse and trim , and the

The trip from Snake river to tie Yellowstone
lowstono park could not buvo boon made
under more favorable circumstances.
First n broad level was crossed. About
every live miles a mountain rivulet with
crystal waters was reuchml. The bud
nf'tho streams were solid gravel , and
but little inconvenience was realized
in fording. After leaving the plateau ,
the main range of the Rocky mountains
was reached , and the ascent was begun.
Gradually the horses wound their way
toward the summit. First a htcop in
cline : again n yawning chasm ; again n
mountain gorge ; and still again a dense
growth of mountain pine impregnable
oven to the eye. This comprises the
mountain route. The stages rocked
backward and lorward nnd nt times it
appeared ns though they would
DEPOSIT THKlll PRECIOUS CAHOO
in the canons thousands of feet below.
But the drivers were men of experi
ence , nnd while some of tlio passengers
that were nervously inclined were con
siderable frightened , the journey was
maac without mishap.
At last wo reached the Yellowstone
park in all its pristine mngnillconco. It
is nature's cnmping ground. There is
but little to indicate the existence of
art. Those who came hero witli the
idea that they are about to sco n coun
terpart of the hanging gardens of Baby
lon , came out to bo disappointed. Qn
the outskirts of the park neglect is om
nipresent. What would and should bo
the finest forest park in the world
is covered to the depth of
several feet with broken timber
thathas accumulated from storms dat
ing back several centuries ago. And
this is the beautiful Yellowstone that
occupies such n prominent attitude in
the list of summer and pleasure resorts.
Those who inhabit the park state that
it would bo nn utter impossibility to
clean up the debris , nnd yet they
frankly admit thnt until this is done the
forestry of the park will bo but n small
feature of its attractions. There are
but few driveways in the park , the
principal ono being the road cut
through the forest by General Howard
and his men nt the time they were en
deavoring to effect the capture of Sit
ting Bull and his band in their retreat
from the Little Big Horn mountains ,
where they had but a few days prior ,
shod the blood of General Ouster and
100 of his bravo companions. General
Howard provided ills artillery with but
a rough roau through the park , as ho
hnd no time to spare in which to beau
tify or perfect his work , there has been
NO IMPHOVEMENT 81NCU THAT TIME.
The average tourist is provided
firearms of some description , but is di
vested of thorn as'soon as he enters upon
the domain of Uncle Sam. A detach
ment of troops is maintained at the
park and everything is kept un
der strict military discipline under
instructions from the secretary of the
interior. On n log cabin at River Side
was a plackard containing the rules is
sued under the authority of L. Q. C.
Lamar. This was btationed In north
western section of the park , at which a
detachment ol regulars is quartered to
preside ever the destiny of the game in
that section. It was at this place that
our party was divested of arms and am-
unition. This part of the baggage is
taken into custody , and is returned to
the visitors when they como out again.
The discharge of tire arms of any kind ,
or the maiming of game , or the defacing
ing of any material- the park is
strictly forbidden. The sale of liquor
is also strictly forbidden , but the tralllo
is carried on surreptitiously. Liquors
can bo had in quantity and any variety.
In my next letter I will tell you all
about the goyors and the freaks of nature -
turo as they are found here ; and also

When I first wont to Dakota its so
ciety was still in a formatlvo state , says
a writer In the Now York Mercury ,

Ono day , while I was sitting in in ,

Arriving at the od shanty I found

I looked in the corner indicated by

A FARM DROPS INTO A HOLE.
Fifteen Acres Suddenly Sink from
'Ililrty to Slxiy Foot.
To see twelve or fifteen acres of dry
land on a billsido high above the water-
level gradually sink until they go down
below the surrounding territory to a
depth ranging from three to sixty feet ,
is an exceedingly remarkable thing ,
snvs the Richmond Dispatch.
This is what may now bo seen on
Spring Hill , Mr. W. B. Gntlinir's farm
of 800 acres , which is located on the
west bide of the Appomattox river ,
about ftvo miles below tbo city of Pe
According to Ed A-ard B. Galling jr. ,
of this city , n son of the owner
of the estate , who bus just re
turned from n visit homo , there was an
"eruption" on this farm about a month
ngo which hud t > omo semblance of n
volcano , but after the upheaval there
was neither lava , smoke nor fire. This
was followed by n libsuroln the ground ,
small at firat , but which opened grad
ually until it was three feet wide , and
then came this depression , which is
soniewiuituliiiming in its character and
On the sunken area were oaks 100
feet high and numerous other trees of
gigantic proportions , which hnvo sunk
as they grow , leaving only the tops of
the branches peering above the walls.
The sinking of the earth carried with
it about twelve or fifteen acres of land ,
leaving nn ugly looking wall as solid as
grnnito on cither side , varyintr from
throe to sixty feet , perfectly "perpendic
The upheaval of n few weeks ngo oc
curred at the upper end of this hillside ,
and following it appeared a crack or
fissure in the ground which was at first
small , but which widened gradually un
til it became three feet or inoro wide
and apparently without bottom. Ono
would drop rocks down in there and
hear them strike the bides , but not tlio
bottom , nor could any one sea the bet
tom. This crevice extended some eight
or nine hundred or perhaps a thousand
yards , and wont beyond the farm and
entered the Gilliam estate , adjoining.
The sunken place must bo twelve or
fifteen acres , perhaps not quite HO much ,
at the broadest point it is about ono
hundred yards nnd it wuunino hundred
yards long. The ourth that has gene
down is not broken up , though the sink-
injr lias boon very uneven. To look
down on this urea it presents n very
picturesque panorama. The lowered
district Is almost parallel with the river
and is in the form of an irregular somi-
clrclo , or , more properly speaking , a
bow. A most bingulur fca'turo of the
whole thing is thai thernisnii upheaval
in the river Justin front of this Dnsin ,
and it seems as though the earth had
passed through an underground current
to the river. Ttiis bar made its nppoar-
nnco suddenly during one night. It
projects a short way up outof the water ,
and would doubtless grow higher but
for thu earth being washed oil' by the
There is n bold flow of water from ono
of the walls that is us clear as crystal
and tastes of iron and sulphur , The
water from this has covered about two
acres of the basin about eight fcot deep
and when the balance of the sinking

of the lower part the whole of this terri
tory will become a lake. The earth has
not changed its position nt all except to
drop down. There have recently been
landslides in the county but they nro

STYLES OF HAIR CUTTING.
A Kansas Barber Tint * Out u Unique
Mr. Ilonry A. Mayor , a Mutn street
barber , has perfected' 'n , unique hair
dresser's fashion plato. iays the Kansas
City Star. A man can''look ever the
fashion plate , select tip ) style of hair
cut or board iio wants , and has only to
call out the number of the one selected
without giving any further instructions.
The idea of getting up such a fashion
plate suggested itself to him ono day
while looking in the window of a photo
graph gallery. Ho has wpont ever a

of properly getting up a fashion plato ,

place , or oven on the , street , IInd a suit
able subject and induce him to hnvo
his hair or board trimmed in the style
most becoming to him , then have him
photographed , front side and back view.
The fashion plato shows forty-eight
dilforont views. There nro seventeen
dllTcrent styles of trimming the board ,

The other morning I witnessed n scn-
Btulonnl scene on the district railway ,

got into the train at Gloustor llond
Station. Seated opposlto mu were n
pale , middle-aged lady nnd n slim youth
linrdly out of his toons. Next to them
was n burly-looking 'squire , evidently
up on n visit. Wo were going lown-
wnrd , nnd at South Kensington n thick
set young man got in who plumped him
self down by my side. Ho had a lighted
clgnrotlo in his hand , nnd ns thu
pungent blue smoke curled into the
.ndy's lace she coughed and looked dis-
"Tbo youth sntd : "This is not n
smoking . " "I'm
carriage. not smok-
.ng , " retorted the other , "and Idrrj
say it will keep in until wo get to the
next station. " "Tobacco smoke makes
my mother .ill , nnd I must nsk you to
put out your cigarette. " "I''ii not
smoking , and I shall do nothing of the
! dnd. " llThon I'll make you , " said the
[ ad , whoso face puled. Ho arose , when
the other put out n fist , a single- blow
from which would probably have crip
pled that poor youth.
And now a singular thing happened.
The burly 'squire , who had remained
passive , quietly produced something
llit glistened , and before you could
count three there was n click and the
young man with the cigarette was hand-
cXitfcd. Said the burly ono : "You'll
pick up your cigarette and put it out of
the . window and then you'll apologize to
J.i Lho lady nnd young gentleman for hav
ing i brought a lighted cijiaretto into a
non-smoking carriage. If you behave
yourself decently I'll lot you go at the
. next station ; if not , I'll hand you over
it [ i the company just as you are , and
t they'll thank mo for doing this little
job. ' " As the 'bquiro-dotective finished
t the speed slackened and wo rolled into
the Sloano Square station.
Before wo left it the cigarette hnd
boon clumsily picked up with both hands
nnd dropped out of the window. Mut
tered apologies were made , nil thnt t
caught being : "Verv sorry won't do il
again hnd no'iden. " The darbies were
slipped off , ttio door was opened , nnd
our compartment contained ono the loss.
Wo tried to draw the ' "squire" between
Sloano Square station nnd Victoria ,
whcao he got out , but beyond n slight
smile ho would make no sign.
