Chicago, September 2. Atrip over the
rennsyltania Railroad just now is peculiar
ly interesting. Johnstown is, of course, the
main point of interest. Hardly does a train
arrive at Altoona before there is a rush of
passengers for the rear cars. An observa
tion car is attached to the regular morning
express from .New York. The Chicago lim
ited has a saloon car at its end. Passengers
sit upon the back platform, which has a
high brass railing, and are grouped at the
doors and windows. All are anxious to see
the scene of the greatest disaster that ever
happened upon the continent, tor more lives
wpre lost in the Connemaugh Valley in June
last than in any of the bloody battles of the
The tram pulls out of the Altoona depot
Tery quietly. There is no weird tooting of
the whistle. TJp the steep grade, among the
wild gorges of the Alleghenies, the coaches
gradually ascend. The dark green mount
ains are bathed in sunshine. Long clouds
of black smoke trail from the stack of the
powerful locomotive. The craggy peaks are
partly hidden under the dark hemlock foli
age. THE rOXDEBTTJL HOESESHOE.
TJp the hills you climb, turning the
points of startling precipices and skirting
ravines so deep that the rays of the sun
rarely penetrate them. You reach the
Eouthern caulk of the great Horseshoe Bend.
It is several hundred feet lower than its
mate in clear sight on the right The huge
horseshoe, with its blazing coke oveqs at the
toe and its little lake at the frog of the hoof
arouses universal interest.
Higher yet the tram ascends, and blacker
trails the smoke from the locomotive. The
smoke wraps the peaks in its fold, and is
dissipated in the atmosphere above the
curves below yon. The gorges grow deeper.
The coaches of the regular express train
are seen below the bend, climbing the
mountain in your wake. Suddenly the
magnificent scenery is shut from view by a
plunge into a long, dark tunnel. From the
back platfoim you watch the light at the
entrance grow smaller and smaller until it is
dimmed by the smoke, and finally disap
pears. Five minutes pass before the engine
emerges into daylight. A few moments later
and it is at Cresson Springs, the summit
of the Alleghenies. Its magnificent hotel
is partly concealed in a park of surprising
beauty." The lawns, paths and the beds of
exquisite flowers are greeted with exclama
tions of delight
ONLY A CRYSTAL STEEA3I.
The coaches begin to roll down the west
ern slope. A crystal stream dashes through
a small defile on the right. Its waters
reach the gulf of Mexico through the Cone
maugh, the Allegheny, the Ohio and the
Mississippi rivers. It joins the Conemaugh
some distance below and trickles through
ill-fated Johnstown. A little depot next
appears in a nest of houses on the'left. A
sign above its door informs you that it is
the village of South Fork. It nestles at the,
base of a mountain cone. The dam that did
all the damage was the other side of the
Conemaugh. The flood struck the gorge in
which we are running a little distance below
the village. Xookmg back from the left,
beyond the junction of the ravines you see
part of the torn dam. The slope below it
looks as though it had been swept br the
rapids of Niagara. The earth is heaved
into ridges and seamed with sand, until the
junction is reached.
Further downward rolls the train. The
valley swerves to the right and becomes a
rocky defile. It makes short angles and
takes serpentine twists. The railroad re
peatedly crosses the stream. All itsbridges,
including one nearly 100 feet high, were car
ried away. Temporary wooden structures
span the gaps, while squads of workingmen
below are cutting stone for more ner-
manent spans. The rocks in the canons are
scoured and scarred by the action of the
flood. Great uprooted trees, and the frames
of nouses and barns, are left in the eddies
and upon the sharp turns in the ledges.
Huge mounds of refuse are banked below us.
Three miles away and the valley again
BT A GIGAKTIC HAEBOW.
The ground is torn up apparently by the
teeth ot a gigantic harrow, and the vale
looks as though it had been showered with
paving stones. Houses fringing the hillside
mark the site of the hamlet above Johns
town. Its heart was torn away. Two new
frame dwellings stand in the debris. The
railroad runs through the center of the vale
on prepared ridges. They were washed
away at the time of the disaster. The devas
tation is so great that it is hard to find the
bed of the stream. The vale, however, is
being cleared. Scores of teams and hun
dreds of laborers are at work on each side of
the track. Temporary switch tracks run
out into the debris, and are used in clearing
away the reiuse. The tents of the laborers
gleam like huge mushrooms among the trees
on the side of the hill. The pick and the
shorel are in use everywhere, and the ham
mer and saw are at work as the space is
Johnstown heaves in sight on the left A
murmur of astonishment from those in the
car is heard. Buildings, brick and frame,
are standing apparently uninjured. You
quickly see, however, that it is only the
upper part of the town, a mile or more above
the railroad viaduct, where the flood was
dammed. The houses are on the left bank
of the stream, where the ground is high and
where the force of the water was much less
than below. Thcv were entirelv l-t-nn,l
the rush of the back water, which began at
the stone bridge. Ragged brick buildings
and the gutted dwellings appear in the out
bkirts of what is left
EYEETTIIIXG IS GOJTE.
And then there is a clean sweep down to
the viaduet; everything is gone. The tract
is a complete level. Men are working like
bees toprepare a foundation for a new city.
There is a city of tents upon a shaded
plateau above the town. The tents have
lost their brightness. They look old and
dirty. A Grand Army veteran might fancy
that one of A. P. HiU'g brigades was en
As you shoot down the river the view is
bidden by long lines of freight cars, await-
.H vo..to u tiimu lne slope. There are
exclamations of impatience among the in
tensely observant passengers. The last rays
of the setting sun are crowning the hills.
At intervals the travelers catch glimpses of
men quitting work, for the dav is done.
Twenty seconds more and you are whisked
over the fatal viaduct It is a small stone
bridge only three spans. You get a glance
at the desolation above you, and that is all. No
trace of the deadly debris packed above the
viaduct by the pressure of the current is left
The -air, however, teems tainted with the nor
ror. The taint undoubtedly comes from what
remains of the mud and ashes, but joa cannot
avoid fancying it an indication that not all of
the 7,000 corpses have been recovered.
In a twinkling, as oulrav ti, i,ri. ......
are shot across the ooint of a bill, aud Johns
town disappear. A moment later yon are ras
ing at the great Cambria Iron Works on the
other side or the stream. They are Clowinir
with heat and are alive with industry. Huge
volumes of smoke and flame roll from their
chimneys. Pluck and money have done excel
lent work. The mills are again intact Hardly
a scar left by the disaster is seen. Hundreds
or workmen are turning out steel rails and
driving out iron products for nearly every sec
tion of the country. It is a sight that fairly
thrills the soul.
THE SIIUOUD OP UIGHT.
Kight enshrouds the mountains as we move
down the valley. The passengers gaze at the
rivulet that caused the disaster In wood or it
31s a simple creek, not nearly as large as the
Bronx. Yon can wade across it to-day at any
point aboi o Johnstown without wetting your
knees. At places the water almost loses itself
In the sand and stoqes. It looks like a trout
stream. The lights of Nineveh glimmer in the
distance as j ou leave the rear platform and an
swer the call to dinner.
But is not at Johnstown alone that the traces
of tbe memorable June flood are seen. The
tran creeps slonlv over many a temporary
bridge east ot Altoona. Tbe Islands in the
feusquebanna are buried in logs and driftwood.
Evidences of the terrible destruction a, AVill
iamsport multiply with every mile traveled.
Tbe bed of the river between Huntingdon and
Altoona is strewn with tbe wrecks of iron
bridges. In some cases they were carried a
mile or more down the stream. The old canal,
which gave Charles Dickens a charming chap
ter in his "American Notes." is destroyed. It
will cost millions to reclaim it Ruined boues
are seen and farms buried in sand. All tbe
turnpike bridces are gone. Very few railroad
spans stood the test for not all were built as
substantially as the one at Johnstown.
Singular it seems that the only one which
withstood the force or the greatest or the
floods should have caused so terrible a dis
aster. TOBACCO AXD BUCITWHEAT.
It will take more than a decade to wear away
the traces of tbe flood of 1SS9. For years to
come the Allegheny gorges oill attract passen
gers to the Pennsylvania road. There are
dozens of men in Chicago tcwlay who are going
East by this ronte because It gives them an op
portunity or seeing the scene of the late hor
rors In the Conemaugh Valley. As they emerge
from the Alleghenies andenterthench tobacco
fields in the central part of the State, thoughts
or the horror will fade. The channel of inter
est will be turned. There are thousands of
acres of tobacco plants along tbe line of
the road and tbe farmers are now gathering
the crop. It appears to be unusually One.
From the umdows of the cars you see the
harvesting. The great green leaves are snipped
close to tbe ground at the stalk. It takes both
hands to use tne immense shears. The leaves
are hung in tho field upon longnooden frames,
where they wilt and dry in the heat of tbe sun.
The only crop rivaling tobasco in thrift is
buckwheat. It is in fnll bloom and attracts
millions of bees. The fields stretch right and
left from the track as white as snow. Corn and
potatoes are not turning out well and there is
very little fruit

Kansas City, September 2. Last night
the wife of William B. Hanna was sepa

men. Hanna knows little about city ways,
and admits he is very green. On getting off
a cable car a rather well-dressed man said
to him: "You have stepped on my toes, sir,
and I intend to have you arrested." Hanna
started off to avoid arrest, and noticing that
the stranger was following, told his wife to
meet him at a restaurant where they had
eaten supper, opposite the police station.
Before joining his wife he was overtaken by
the stranger to whom he gave a dollar, to

IS a complaint from which many suffer
and few arc entirelv free. Its causa
is indigestion and a sluggish liver, tho
cure for which is readily found in the
use of Ayer's Pills. .
" I have found that for sick headache,
caused by a disordered condition of tho
stomach, Ayer's Pills are the most re
liable remedy." Samuel C. Bradburn,
"After the use of Ayer's Pills for
many years, in my practice and family,
I am justified in saying that they are an
excellent cathartic and liver medicine
sustaining all the claims made for them."
W. A. Westfall, M. D., V. P. Austin
& 2J. W. Eailway Co., Burnet, Texas.
"Ayer's Pills are the best medicine
known to me for regulating the bowels,
and for all diseases caused by a dis
ordered stomach and liver. I suffered
for over three years from headache, in
digestion, and constipation. I had no
appetite and was weak and nervous
most of the time. By using three boxes
of Ayer's Pills, and at the same time
dieting myself, I was completely cured."
Philip Lockwood, Topeka, Kansas.
" I was troubled for years with indi
gestion, constipation, and headache. A
few boxes of Ayer's Pills, used in small
daily doses, restored me to health.
They are prompt and effective." W.H.
