Lancastrians in the Recky Mountains.
Interesting Incidents of Travel Through a
Correspondence of the Intelligencer.
Lake City, Cel., May 1, 18S0.
Lake City, a five-year-old mining camp,
is situated en a beautfful plain two and a
half miles long by an average of three
quarters of a mile wide, washed en one
side by Ilenson creek and en the ether by
Lake Ferk of the Gumnsen river. The
camp is hemmed in en all sides by tall
cliffs whose crowns are often hid by the
clouds. They rise above the town five
hundred te three thousand feet. The
town itself is eight thousand four hundred
feet above the level of the sea, but alti
tudes ever eleven thousand feet are reach
ed coming from the plains. The San Juan
(san wan) mountains are in the main range
of the Recky mountains. The Uncom Uncem
pahgre, tallest peak in Colerado (12,345
feet), is distant only fifteen miles from
here, but plainly visible.
This city is the pivotal point for the
richest, solidest and most permanent silver
mining district in the world. Over one
hundred valuable mines are new being
operated within a radius of sixteen miles of
this camp and half a mile below town,
where Lake Ferk tumbles ever a precipice,
is situated one of the finest smelting and
reduction works in the country, the evens
being the largest in the world.
Accompanied by another Lancaste
rian Mr. E. C. Baldwin, a type I
arrived here last Sunday, 23th of
April, after an eventful passage.
We left Louisiana, Me., 12:10 a. in., en
the 20th inst., via the C. & A. Tt. R., te
Kansas City, then the day following via
the A.,T. & Santa Fc R. R. te Pueblo, and
thence via the Denver & Rie Grande Nar
row Gauge te Alamosa, the terminus.
Frem this point te Lake City the passage
is made by coaches, 113 miles.
The route here has only ordinary inter
est until you reach homely, dirty Pueblo.
Taking the neat, saucy-looking cars of the
D. fc R. G., which I noticed were built at
Yerk, Pa., and turning your back upon
Pueblo, scenes new te the traveler from
the states meet the eye. The first 20
miles may net be perfectly agreeable en
account of the terrible wind thai blows
here all the year round, and which almost
"bounced" me off the platform while
skipping up grade at the rate of 20 miles
an hour. The railway track is often block
aded by snow-drifts here. But, unmind
ful of the whistling wind and Hying sand,
the eye finds pleasure in watching the
snow-covered tops of the beautiful Spanish
peaks and ether noted cliffs of the Sangrc
de Christe mountains. New the read
makes a wide sweep around a mountain
base, and our snow-cliff pictures arc be
hind us, and and again another swing and
they are en the ether side of the train.
All the while our general direction is tow
ard them, but we seem often two hours
riding te have get no nearer.
After leaving Pueblo we had the plea
sure of meeting Brevet Capt. Chas. A.
Vernen, of company D, U. S. army, new
stationed at Fert Garland, through which
we passed en Thursday night, 22d ult.
Capt.V. is a Philadclphian and well-known
in Lancaster as a prominent cricket player
20 years age or mera.
Before reaching Ft. Garland we make
the ascent of Dump mountain, and pass
around Mule Shee bend, a feat of engi
neering skill performed by a Pennsylvanian,
a resident of Carlisle. At Veta Pass this
read reaches an elevation of 9,339 feet, the
highest grade attained by any railroad in
the United States by 1,000 feet, and with
one exception the highest in the world.
At Mule Shee curve, which is a far mere
dangerous looking place than Herse Shee
curve of the Alleghenies, the read travels
190 of a circle. Frem Ft. Garland we
had a fine moonlight view of Sierra Blanca,
ever 14, 000 feet high.
Frem Alamosa te Clear Creek ( 92
miles) we had a pleasant ride, part of the
way in Barlew & Sanderson's coaches and
part of the way in open spring wagons and
bark beards. On account of the snow
drifts, forty feet deep in many places, the
coaches are net used. I will net attempt
a description of the scenery. Suffice it te
say it is net surpassed anywhere in the
Frem Clear Creek te Powder Hern the
read was se deeply covered that we were
compelled te walk a distance of eight
miles en the snow crust. And it is in this
short stretch in the eleven hundred miles
we traveled that most interest is centered.
I am sure my young companion
and I will net seen forget it. Before
leaving Del Norte, knowing what we
would have te encounter, we prepared our
selves with goggles, te guard against snow
blindness a terrible affliction. '
After breakfast at Clear Creek, our
party, nine in number, mounted a four
horse buckboard, a concern with two
seats, no side-beards, and 8x3 feet in di
mensions. We hurry en in this convey
ance for three miles when we took te the
read. Having no veils te protect us from
sun-bum, snow-burn and wind-burn, Ed
and I utilized our handkerchiefs by cut
ting eye holes in them, but we tired of this
clumsy veil in a few hours, and were heart
ily sorry for it afterward, for new, after
seven days rest, we leek as if we had
been en a six months spree. We -walked
Indian file, for the trail was seldom ever
twelve inches wide. Te swerve en either
side was dangerous. Baldwin and I each
went into the soft drift once. I te my arm
pits, he te his chin. "We had some diffi
culty in getting him out. Just before

striking Powder Hern the snow is said te
ba seventy feet deep.
My companion exhibited considerable
pluck and wasn't the last man in. I knew
the boys at Lancaster who knew Ed will
be net a little amazed te hear of that quiet
boy's adventurous spirit.
"We held out very well until we com
menced the ascent of the last peak. One
mile and a-halfand 2,000 feet up was no
light task for " tender feet " in such a rare
atmosphere. "We rested often, I assure
you. Our limbs did their duty well, but
our breathing apparatus failed us often.
When we reached Powder Hern we were
fully 9,000 feet ever the heads of our Lan
Here we took dinuer, having made the
8 miles in four and a-half hours. After
an hour's rest we took sleds for 3 miles
and then a sering wagon 9 miles into Lake
City, reaching there at 4:30 p. m. Sunday.
The scenery from Powder Hern station te
Lake City is grand and inspiring beyond
description, the descent in G miles being
3,000 feet. In the summer this entire
read is traversed by C-horse Concord open
But I am entrenching upon your space.
There is much te write about from this
point. It is a rich country in short,
"there's millions in it " te the man with
capital. These who come new with eyes

discreet men can make it pay.
I will write again if it pleases you te

A Second Claude Mclnette Case.
Mrs. Heeper's Paris Letter.
I was recently told by a young French
gentleman (the son of the Prefect of La
Rechelle) one of the strangest romances of
real life that ever came te my knowledge.
Seme ten years age a peasant boy who
lived en a farm near the town of Clermont Clerment
Ferrand saw and fell in love with the beau
tilul daughter of a gentleman of geed for
tune and position, he being at that time
seventeen years of age and the young lady
just sixteen. The new Claude Melnotte
was se madly in love that he went straight
te the house of the young girl's parents
and demauded her hand in marriage. The
father treated the preposterous preposition
with geed naturcd scem. " Come back
when you have an income of $40,000 (200,
000 francs)," was his answer, " and then
we will see about it." The infatuated
youth took him at his word and forthwith
set te work.
One of the peculiarities of the town of
Clerment-Ferrand is a scarcity of . water.
There is no river near it, se it relies for its
water supply en springs and wells. Under
these circumstances a spring is a very val
uable piece of property, and commands a
relatively high price. Se the young peas
ant lever set off for an adjacent mountain,
there te search for hidden springs. My
informant said that he had honey combed
the whole side of the mountain with
his works, constructing at one point a tun
nel ever two miles in length. All this was
executed with his own hands. He works
from dawn te dark, lives upon potatoes of
his own planting, and never spends se
much as a seu upon a mug of beer. Every
Sunday he gees te mass in the town, after
which he proceeds te the house of his lady
love, te ask if she is married or likely te
be. On lecciving a response in the nega
tive he plods contentedly homeward, and
starts out afresh te his toil en the morrow.
This life has continued new for full ten
years. Up te the present time he has dis
covered three important springs, each of
which he has sold for $3,000, but though
new possessed of what for a man in his
condition of life is wealth, he abates none
of the hardships of his existence.
He has one fixed idea, namely, te be
come the posscsserof a fortune sufficient te
enable him te claim the hand of one object
of his blind passion. Yet no one who
knows the parties even imagine that the
young lady will consent te marry him. She
is new 23 years of age, and is pretty, re
fined and accomplished, while he is a
coarse, unlettered peasant, without even
physical comeliness, as he is short and
thick-set, with a bread, stolid countenance.
What will be the end of his dream, I won
der? My informant told me that the
story was true in every particular, as he
had himself visited the works and entered
the curious tunnel, and had been present
ed te this new Jacob, ready te serve even
mere than seven years for his Rachel.
Hew the Czar Lives.
Ills Daily Round of LHe.
The Czar's method of life has changed a
great deal since the last attempt en his
life. He only leaves his palace new when
business requires it, and then usually in a
close carriage accompanied by six of his
own mounted escort (Circassians). He
rises about 7 o'clock. While dressing he is
informed as te what he had done en that
day the previous year, what uniform he had
worn, whom he had received, &c. He then
takes tea, and receives the prefect of the
city, the minister ef'the imperial court and
ether dignitaries. After walking for some
time up and down the spacious rooms he
withdraws into his working cabinet, and
then pays a visit te the sick empress,
never emitting at the same time te visit
his daughter, the Duchess of Edinburgh,
who with her children occupies the same
rooms as she possessed when a young girl.
Thereupon the emperor receives the minis
ters and ether high officials who are requir
ed te report te him and transacts business
with them. At twelve o'clock breakfast is
brought in, which the emperor usually
takes alone in his cabinet. The ether mem
bers of the imperial family resident in the
winter palace are also in the habit of
taking brer-.kfast alone in their rooms.
Alter breakfast the emperor usually takes
a drive, but always with a definite pur
pose either te attend parade or pay a
visit te some member of the imperial
house. Returning te the palace, he spends
the time until dinner either at work or
visits the empress or her children most
frequently his daughter, with whose chil
dren he loves te chat and play. Dinner
is laid precisely at 9, but since the catas
trophe of February 3 never in one particu
lar room, and all the members of the im
perial family seldom sit down together.
An exception te this, however, are the
grand (se-called) gala dinners. In these
cases the emperor sits down with all the
members of the imperial family aud the
foreign embassaders at one table, the ser
vice being of geld. Tea is served at 9.
After that the emperor sometimes plays a
short game, generally whist, with the
persons nearest te him, and retires te rest
at latest at 11.
