Arlaona Stories Told 17
To reach American most wonderful table
land by wire tram from the depths of the
Grand Canyon of the Colorado Is the plan
of a corporation, the engineers of which
have already the ground for the under
taking. On the north' side of the great gorge,
Its own cliff sides rising sheer above the
surrounding desert, the Kaibab plateau lifts
high toward Arizona's cloudless eky. In
accessible, abounding tn game, the plateau
remains a land of mysteries In the midst
of the baked alkali plains.
Tears ago In a company which Included
John W. Young, son of Brlgham Young,
a promoter of the Shipbuilding Trust,
Colonel William F. Cody visited the plateau
and he saw Its wonders. His horse walked
ankle deep In the flowers that cover Its
grassy stretches. The old scout stood on
Point Sublime and looked out over the
Canyon of the Colorado. Ue spent two
weeks on the upland's floor. He was the
first to advance the proposition of making
a national park from Kalbab plateau.
The place la so situated that It would be
necessary to run a wire fence around It
for several miles, and game could not leave
nor could other animals come Into It.
Buffalo Bill" and John W. Young talked
of this plan.
Now a movement has been begun, and a
petition will come from Utah and Arlsona
asking that this Improvement be brought
about. With the establishment of the
aerial tramway and the opening of this
wonderland to men who could neves reach
It people realise that Its game and other
treasures muBt be protected.
Heretofore only a few men from the
cities have come to the place. To reach
It they have Journeyed across miles Of
desert. And at the Journey's end they have
ought out canyon mouths, entering which
they have been able to penetrate Into the
Interior of the tableland. But to do this
has always required old guides. Without
some one who knew the country they -would
soon suffer for water and be lost. They
might wander for days and come within a
few feet of the hidden springs without
knowing of their presence.
Aeroaa the Grand Canyon.
This desert Journey Is more than a day In
length. And jet from the railroad across
the gorge to the south you can see Point
Rubllme at the plateau's southern edge.
Between you and the promontory, how
ever, stretch the awful depths of the
Orand Canyon. By throwing a cable across
this the Journey will be accomplished In
a few minutes.
That Journey In Itself will show things
that have never been seen before by man.
Stretching straight across the lower gorge,
at the foot of Bright Angel trail, the tram
way will cross directly above the lashing
river. A short trail will lead to another
tram, which will carry men and women
along the face of sheer cliffs and over
narrow canyons which reach seemingly
into the bowels of the earth to a trail In
the upper canyon. And this trail reaches
the Kaibab plateau.
In the views of the Orand Canyon ob
tained from points accessible from rail
roads men have seen nothing of the gorge
Itself, They have not seen the river only
the silent depths that lead to It. In this
crossing by ropes of steel they will look
straight down upon the mighty stream
and will have revealed before them depths
hitherto hidden from all men.
The tramway proposition has been
financed and the route has been surveyed.
With its establishment the effort to have
a national park made from the Kalbab
plateau will be pushed In congress. v
The Buckskin plateau Is one of Amer

monstrous gorge of the Colorado. With the
lofty painted walls of this canyon at Ita
southern edge and its own cliffs rising sheer
from the silent desert, the upland can be
reached only through Its canyons. These
radiate from Its center like spokes to the
rim of a wheel. They are level floored and
their slope Is gentle and even. Up their
bottoms a bicyclist could easily ride.

and at the approach of man such a guard

They are mountain' blossoms, harebells,

rises from the bruised and stirred blossoms
fills the air.
Kanab Is always the point of departure
for those who visit the place. It lies a few
miles north of Utah's southern boundary, a
little old Mormon town, founded years and
years ago by order of Brigham Young. It
Is In the center of a land of mystery. Miles
from the railroads, with the strange natural
bridge country and the canyons and gorges
of unexplored mountain ranges opening to
the west and north. It frequently sees the
departure of such expeditions aa that which
recently visited the Kalbab plateau.
In and near the old town of Kanab you
will find some of the few surviving mem
bers of Brigham Young's Danltes. They
sought out this southern retreat when

The Mormon's Prayer,
It was on of these old Mormons who
when lost with a party of Bait Lake City
men. dropped on his knees to, pray for
water. Ha said:
"Ob, Lord, we era lost and there Is no
water. We are in a tight place and this Is
a case where there can t be any fooling. It
Isn't for myself I care, oh Lord, but I've
got a couple of tenderfeet with me and
they're liable to play out 'moat any time."
He had hardly done with his' prayer when
one of the party who had gone on ahead
returned with news of a big spring. This
man oi me oeaert waa not surprised. He
naa Known rrom the time he dropped on his
knees that water was golna to com.
In hla revelation ,at any rate to forgive the
the tenderfeet In the party had faith enough
reference to themuelvee and their plight.
Boutn of Kanab there la a fort which
these old Mormons built by order of Brig
ham Young. It lies In a little oasis called
Pipe Springs. The limitless, silent desert
surrounds It. It was for years the last
outpost to the southward of the whits race.
In those days- the Navajo Indians used
to sweep out across the desert and drive
before them all the cattle they could stam
pede. "When hard pressed they would turn
the galloping herd's head toward Kaibao
plateau. Running them , up one of the
canyons, they would soon have them safe
from any pursuit.
The fort was built to stop thla. It was
surrounded by a stockade and Its thick
log aldea had nariow loopholes. Here a
Utile band of the old Mormons lived with
no company save themselves and the des.
ert. Twice Indians swept down on the
place and massacred Its garrison, caught
unawares. Each time pew defenders took
the places of the old and the fort still
stood, a menace to wandering banda of
savages. It still stands, weather beaten,
picturesque, the last building you will see
on your Journey to the plateau.

toward a pitiless, brasen sky. Again you

change as mysteriously as do the tints
of the ocean on a summer day. It Is never
the same, this desert country. Its colors
and Its limitless vistas are always shifting
their tints and outlines.
The Wall on the Banda,
And as you ride to the southward you
see rising a low wall. Its height increases
to your right. It seems to uplift right out
of the alkali sands and point upward. You
can see It half a, day ahead. It Is the wall
of the Kaibab plateau.

canyons. If you be on the plateau and
are lost you are sure to strike one of
them. To try to d"scend to the bed Is
futile. The walls are too steep. It would
be hours' work. But follow the general
direction of the canyon's rim and sooner
or later your pony brings you to Pe Mott

Traveling up one of these canyons you
do not notice much rise. In fact, you have
noticed no rl" since you left Kanab,

SEEKING NEW FORTUNE AT 78
Senator Stewart Brglna Asaln at the
Foot of Fortujie'a Ladder
Broken In fortune at an age when most
men are preparing to die. Senator William
M. Stewart, the indomitable veteran of
the senate has Just completed a house In
the modest town of Rbyollte. Nev., where
he says he will "begin life all over again."
He haa won and lost several fortunes and
was at one tints accounted among the rich
est men In Washington.
A correspondent of the Philadelphia
North American writes about the change;
Since his retirement from public life last
March, after a service In the upper branch
of congress covering more than forty
years, the world has heard little of Sen
ator Stewart, The newspapers published
dispatches to the effect that he waa ones
more a poor man and that he would make
his residence In the wes. Then they for
got all about him.
To lose a fortune Is a serious enough
misfortune at any period of life, and at
Senator Btewart's age (78) it is almost
without exception a crushing blow. The
fact that It has not proved so In his case
may be becauae he is used to losing for
tunes and making them, or It may be be
cause he Is not like other men.
Senator Stewart, the title will always
stick to him ejipeets to move Into his new
home In a few days. When he started to
build It, down in the Bullfrog district, the
townspeople, who knew his record for
gaiety In the east, said:
We're glad to have you with us. Sen
ator; but what are you doing way down
here in this lonely place?"
'Oh, I'm Just going to get back among
the boys for a while," answered the old
man, straightening his six feet of stature
and throwing back his broad shoulders.
"This air makes me feel Ilka a 4-year-old.
There's no place like Nevada, I tell you,
and I figure that I'll be doing a big law
business hers before long. Better to wear
out than to rust out, you know."
His new house cost 120,000. That Is more
than he was believed to have saved out of
the wreck wtlen the model dairy farm in
Virginia put the last touches on a finan
cial ruin that waa begun when ha tried
to force a real estate boom in the direc

When you see him laughing, boisterous
and boyish, taking the keenest pleasure
In all his poor possessions, and seemingly
giving never a thought to those that he
has lost in ils old age, you have to rub
your eyes and say to yourself:
"Can this really be Senator William M.
Stewart, who has had the world at his
feet time and again, the man who, as
leading counsel for the Falr-iFlood-Mackay
syndicate on the famous Comstock lode,
received in oae fee )2o0,0U0, then the largest
fee ever received by any lawyer In the
world In a single fee; the man who was

assassinated, and who la the only living

Europe originated the picture postal
cards, although in a different form from
what it -now takes on the American news
stand or store. Aix-les-Bains, or some other
famous watering place, was responsible for
the beginning of the cards, for among the
first on record are some bearing the pic
tures of hotels at these resorts. Then came
the world's expositions, with their demand
for souvenirs to moll to the loved ones at
borne, and what could be so suitable aa a
picture postal card? And now It Is a poor
city or a poor summer resort that hasn't Its
souvenir postal cards for sale to visitors.
Still, so long as the picture was onfy a sou
venir, made and for sale at different points
of interest, Its circulation was never ef na
But the Idea was taken and Improved

to their friends bearing, the picture of a
hotel where they were visiting, why
wouldn't they like to mall them cards con

a new field. "Hustler" saw the possibilities
in it, and the result is the picture postal
card fad. Tho manufacturers of these little
novelties have closed their presses to every
thing else and are turning them out by the
million. Million Is the word, for one Arm,
