10 THE SCIi ANTON TBIJ3ITNE TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 18, 1394; fldv?nttirN on Ih? RockyMoiinfaiDS A l'ormcr Scnintoniun Describes a Trip to Tike's Teak. THE SEXSATIOX 01' FREEZING Terrible Experience of .Miss Minnie I'ow cli und a I'urty of Friends Who .Mueio tho Ascent I'pon Foot in October. Heroism of an ICscort. Colorado Springs, Nov. 2G. I told you, I believe, that a party o us intended KoiiiK horseback, up Pike's Peak, a week or so after school commenced. "Well, we went, but not horseback. We walked up and rode down. We made the trip Oct. 6 and 7. The party was to have consisted of Mrs. Arj;o, Mr. Caldwell, Miss' St. Clair and myself. Mr. Aii?o intended walking as far as the Half Way .House 'und remaining there until we returned. Mr. Argo. you know, is here for his health. Mr. Cald well is a young Kentucky gentlrm.'ui who is here at the .Springs with his bride for her health. She caught cold on tht-ir wedding trip last Juno, and has since been very low with consump tion. She is now recovering and able to drive out, but of course, not able to have joined the pedestrian party for itho summit of Pike's Peak.' Our plans were all laid and we wcr? to start early Saturday morning re turning on Sunday spending the night on the Peak. Mr. and Mrs. Caldwell and a few other Kentucky friends elrow up to the school Friday afternoon to have the last talk over the trip before starting. We compared notes and found that each of us had been solemn ly warned to not take the trip on foot at this time of the year, by numerous cautious people, and, on the other hand, urged on by non-cautious people. We were inclined to follow the advice of the latter, and went down to see how Mrs. Argo felt about it. We found her with a sick baby and no servant. That set tled her g.ing. Nothing daunted In our determination to go, Mr. Caldwell, Miss St. Clair and I looked elsewhere for a chaperone. We begged, we plead with all the non-consumptive ladies of our acquaintance. One was afraid of Iter heart; another, that her respiratory or pins would give out on such a climb and at such great altitude; another was afraid she wuld frpeiie lo death. We laughed at such an excuse as that. Did we laugh later? Wait you shall see. At last we found a young lady Miss Cornish, the buys' supervisor at the school, who readily consented to go; and as Mrs. Caldwell and Mrs. Argu ad vised us to go, we decided to start 'the next morning. A Desirable Acquisition. While we were completing the ar rangements that afternoon, a telegram was received, by Mr. Argo from Mr. Gregory, saying he would pass through Colorado Springs that night with a couple car loads of horses en route to Kentucky, and wanted to join the Pike's Peakers on their trip; so he would stop off. We were delighted with this desirable acquisition to our party. Mr. Gregory is a great favorite. Largo, young and strong and bubbling over with life and fun. At the time we were r.imply pleased that he would join us. Today we offer up a prayer of thanks giving that he did join us. God, in Ills omniscience, sent Mr. Gregory to be one of our party. You will compre hend why, later. That evening Miss St. Clair and I filled three good sized boxes with a very tempting lunch enough for a party of ten instead of only live. Mr. Argo said he would drive us, Misses Cornish and St. Clair and myself, at 6 the next morning went down to The Antlers, w here we were to meet Messrs. Caldwell and Gregory. Miss St. Chili managed, with considerable exertion, both on her part and on mine, to induce me to rise a t 5 a. ni. Kverything had been made ready the night before, so that we had nothing to do but dress, oat our breakfast of eggs, bread and butter and coffee, jump into the wait ing carriage and he driven to the hotel. I idiall take time to say, we dressed very warmly, worn light-weight coats and eac h carried a shawl in shawlslrap. Miss Cornish carried a small grip, con taining bottles of Pond's Extract, alco hol, camphor, ammonia, smelling salts and brandy. At C.43 a. ni. we five boarded the oars for Manitou a dist ance of six miles. Arrived there we took a carriage to the Cog Hoad sta tionabout two miles. Now began our never-to-be-forgotten climb. From this point to the summit is twelve miles by following the cog road. The car riage road is twenty-one miles. We took the cog road. It was now S.M a. ft. A glorious day neither too cool nor too warm. We reached what Is called the Half Way House nt 12.13 p. in. None of us felt much fatigued. We ordered coffee and ate lunch. At 1.15 p. m. we continued our ascent. Mr. Caldwell r- - sir:: .-ft- 'VX. nnd I seemed much the best walkers. We kept quite a distance ahead of tho , others without tiring ourselves much. Miss St. Clair came along so slowly !' that we very much feared she would Rive out. The grade now beenme steeper nnd It was very apparent that we were nil getting very tired and short of breath. I have told you how difficult it Is for most people to breathe even nt the Springs, and we were now at nn ele vation of about 9,000 feet. Mips Cor nlsh began to have a rather queer look, and 'her breath came In quick, jerky gasps. She Insisted that she was doing very well and so we kept on slowly climbing and climbing, but finding It neccessary to sit down and rest about every dozon steps. We talked and Joked less. Each one felt that climbing the peak on foot was a rather more serious undertaking than we had anticipated. Still, we were' not sorry that we had come. We were now nearing the tim ber line the last tree was In sight and we thought that it could not be more than two hours before we should reach the summit. Tho Toboggan Episode. We had been warned at the Half Way House to look out for two toboggans, ',; which would come down from the peak about 4 p. m. at the rate of one nnd a half miles a minute, and on some grades at two miles a minute. Two venturesome men were to come down on them. We had entirely forgotten about them and were each, not sitting, , but lying down in the center of the track, when we heard something like a mighty wind. We had been told that at Windy Point the wind was blowing nt eighty miles an hour, and, as an other hour's walking would bring us there, we naturally supposed that we were beginning to hear the wind. Some thing prompted Mr. Caldwell to look up the grade.. To his horror he saw the toboggans bearing down on us at a most terrible speed. His cry of "The toboggans! The toboggans:" roused us, and we just had time to roll off the track some of us not yet oh 'our feet when the toboggans went literally Hy ing by us. A second more we sshould ull have been killed. We were weak enough before Miss Cornish particularly. This was too much for her. She lay on the ground like one dead. Her heart gave a few wild jumps nnd then seemed almost to cease to beat. Imagine our feelings. Miles from any human habitation, no water, no vegetation, only a stony, barren mountain, snow rapped peaks all around us, nnd an apparently dying girl. You see we were afraid of heart failure. People have dropped dead time nnd again from heart failure at that altitude. We worked with her twenty minutes before she was able lo lie lifted to her feet. She was too weak to walk. Mr. Gregory placed bis arms around ... v. i . r . , tY'H.r.'- 1 ' A - Y; V . ' Y ' v ' " l.scape from her. She moved her feet, lie pushed her up the .mountain. Miss St. Clair and I were still able to go along at a reasonable rat". We felt extremely hungry nnd wanted to eat, but Mr. 'Caldwell sug gested that we wait until we reach the sunshine, as we were nil terribly chilled. The wind was now blowing in our faces at a rate of forty miles an hour. On we trudged, up and up tired, thirsty, hungry and oh! so cold. Mr. Caldwell strapped the shawls and lunch to his l ack and went on ahe.ad of us. Mr. Gregory and Miss Cornish came next, he still all but carrying her up. Miss St. Clair and I were last, ten minutes walk behind Mr. Gregory and Miss C.irnlsh, and about twenty minutes behind Mr. Cald well. I felt myself becoming weaker and weaker. Miss St. Clair noticed it and f. -'it worritd. I told her I thought If I only had something to eat and my shawl that I should have strength to go on. My lips were now so stiff with the cold, that I had difficulty In mov ing .them to even speak. At supper the night before, I was too much dated a,t the thought of going to eat anything. All I could think of and say was, "I'm going to walk to th? Peak." The same way at breakfast and likewise at lunch at the Half Way House. Do you won der that I now felt hungry? "Felt hungry" is putting it mildly. I was starving. Miss St. Clair told me to come on us rapidly as I could and she would go ahead to stop Mr. Cald well to get me some of the lunch and my shawl. In twenty minutes more she was out of sight. We had now reached Windy Point. I can assure you it was truly named. ISiisincss for Mr. (ircRtiry. Mr. Gregory laid Miss Cornish down on the rocks and came back to help me, as he had noticed my falling strength. The wind had blown me down several times. I managed with Mr. Gregory's help to gi t ns far ns Miss Cornish. Then I lay down by her side too weak to stand even with the aid of Mr. Gregory's arm. He, poor man, was just exhausted. For two hour he had' literally carried MI:-,s Cormlsh, and now he had me unable to go a step farther. It was yet two miles nnd thiee quarters to the top of the Peak, nnd he alone with two girls unable to walk. He just thought the three of us would have to die right there. We must go on; to stay there would be to freeze to d'-nth. The odd stuper that crimes from long exposure, at a great altitude In cold, was steal ing over me. Strange noises sounded in my curs, and my feet and hands tingled. Down below in the va.'ley the sun was shining warmly, but nt this elevation the cold was piercing. A high wind had also ris;:n as the day declined. The failal desire to be down and be at rest, with which frost 1:111s, stole on me. I struggled hard against this mor tal sleepiness nnd increasing numb ness. At last I begged Mr. Gregory to let me lie on those rm-ks' and sleep while he went on with Miss Cornish and sent back help for me. I did not realize my danger. I. thought weak ness and hunger had made nie sleepy, and that If I could only He there nnd sleep an hour, I should then have strength to go on. I was no long.'l' cold, but fo sleepy that I simply could not keep awake. Mr. Gr.gory would waken me, and. In nnothet second I would be In a s uind sleep. Suddt nly he had the horrible thought that I was freezing to death I was, really be ing chilled rather than actually freez ing. He made one last supreme effort. He took me under one nrm and Miss CVirnlsh under the other, nnd was dragging us along, when ho saw a man, with a shawl under his arm, approach ing us. Just Imagine his joy. The man came from a big cabin a mile away, and said that a lady had sent him to help us. The lady, of course, was Miss St. Chili'. He sajl Mr. Cald well had lert the cabin nbout twenty minutes before Miss St. Clair reached there. You see, when Mr. Caldwell left us, Miss St. Clair and I were getting along very nicely. Only Miss Cornish had given out. So he thought he had better go on as fust as he could before he gave out entirely Iflmmlf. He Is not a very strong man, and at that time could not have lfted two ounces. The thought (if help being so near at hand, revived me Romewhat. I stood alone nnd In a weak voice Insisted on Miss Cornlsh'RoIng on wltH the man as I considered her In a worse slate than I wus. Tho man was fresh nnd Btrong, and he half led, half carried her with out much difficulty. Mr. Gregory and I sat down to rest after we had slowly walked on a l-.tle distance. I had no sooner, sat down than I fell over un conscious. Mr. Gregory, at the same time, was taken with a severe chill, and was wild with anxiety about me. He force the) few remaining droH? 'of brandy botween my freezing lips, rolled me on the rocks, shook nU called on me to rouse myself. Didn't 1 know that I was freezing to death? How It I'ecls to Freeze. What I shall tell you now Is what has been told me. I remember nothing un til I came to consciousness lying on the bare, cold floor of that cabin. Mr. Gregory says, that presently I mut tered, as If talking in my sleep, "I am so comfortable, so warm, but so hungry. Give me something to eat. Do get me some soup. I am starving to death and you will not give me anything to eat. Do not move me. I am so sleepy. So sleepy. So slee py." Then I ceased to speak and lay as if dead. With su perhuman strength Mr. Gregory picked me up in his arme (I weigh VS- pounds) nnd carried me the remaining half mile to the little.log cabin on the side of the mountain in among the rocks. How he j ever did he ays he knew that he simoly cannot say. must. If lie He did not I should die. Miss St. Clair was on the lookout for us, and threw open the door wh?n she the Tohhogans. heard Mr. Gregory's rail for help was now dark. They laid me on floor limp and Apparently lifeless, ter working with me a little over It the Ar rive minutes 1 began to show some signs oC lire". My eyelids quivered and I again muttered, "I am so comfortable. Do not move me. Let me sleep." Then 1 began to-slowly regain consciousness j and to oicn niv eves tiddilv and to no- i tlce my surroundings.' It seemed as if I I were being awakened from a pleasant soothing dream. I was still unable to move even my arms. It was as if my body had become p.'iraly;:e'd. In a'.i hour more I was able to sit up alone. While 1 was in the stupor I thought 1 was lying em a sirf t, warm feather bed and that a great number of people ver clapping their hands in applause for some gn at deed I had done. The feath er bed turned out to be a bare, Imrd, cold floor; and the clapping of hands my face and hands being slapped. As soon as I was aide to sit up I realized how hungry I was. I asked for some thing to eat. The old woman of the cabin put, Into my hand a hard biscuit with a . generous slice of fat, boiled bacon cut thick between it. I snatched It like a wild cieature. To the end of time I shall never foget how good that biscuit and fat, thick bacon tasted. (You may or v yy may not know that I formerly devested bacon. I could not be Induced to e-at It.) I devoured that biscuit like a starving animal nnd then said, "More. Give me more1. It 13 so good." I shall not go Into details about how I ate everything I could lay my hands on, nnd jumped at them like a crazy per son If they tried to restrain 'me. At last I began to act more like myself and to pay some liee'd to how worn-out and tiled the others were1. . That old log cabin! I can never de scribe It to you. I wish I had a photo graph to send yqou. It is culled the Saddle house-, bee'iiuse the mountain at this point has the form of n saddle. An old Irish woman Mary Morgan Uvea there nnd boards the si'ctlon men. There were only two there when we were. The men sometimes slxieen slept In one room no floor, in berths or bunks, as they called them, one on top of the other. The coalbin and wood pile were also In this room If room It could be culled. In the center was an old i-.love ashes pileel nil around it. Three sides of the room were lined with the Ueiihs two rows. One wee win dow wr.s the only means of ventilating the place. A Med to lie IJcineinK'rcd. A look at the dingy, dlrtv holo enough for Mr. Gregory. Ho magnani mously said he would s'.t up all night and keep the (Ire burning In the room that was the general living room. The edd woman said she thought we three girls could sleep in the same bed Willi her. Oh! that bed and bed room. Shall the memory of It ever grow dim. A bed and some grocery buxys comprised the entire furniture. Not the suspicion of a window In the room. Our old friend curled herself like a snail in Its she ll, In one corner of the bed nnd then sang out, "Come, girls." wt. pazed comically at one another and each said to the other, with a poke of tho elbow, "You go." At last Miss Cornish ami Miss St. Clnlr "turned In." I sat by the lire with Mr. Gregory. The room was so cold, nnd the stove a small rooking stove so hot that while our toes were burnlag our backs would be freezing, and vlee versa. After a brief season In bed the girls again Joined us nnd tho rest of thr.t long, windy, freezing night we kept waleii by that fire, and noted the nntlcs of the dozens of mountain rats and mice, which swarmed around us. They Bque-alcd, fought, chased each other nlong the logs, Ml Into the water pall, nte up the scraps of food left on the table, and attempted to climb on our chairs. Some did sufficed in getting on the boxes on which we had emr feet then we girls did tho seiueallng. Sleep was out eif tho question, ns you can readily Imagine. Then, too, the wind was blowing, howling around that cabin at eighty miles an hour. Last year I thought I had heard wind. -Now I know that I had never heard wind until that night. You can ' have no conception of how It blew. It was u hurricane. Toward morning It abated somewhat, and at day break, breakfnstless, we resumed our walk for the summit. We still had a mile and three quarters of the most difficult grade to climb. We started out quite briskly, consid ering all things. We had gone about a quarter of a mile when to my utter dismay, I began to be very sick. I struggled against it with all my might, but sick I was, nnd deathly sick, too. It was the groat altitude that was af fecting me. The cold was intense, and the higher up we went the harder blew the wind. Whn we reached the top they told us that the wind was blowing nt 100 miles an hour. It blew strong Mr. Gregory and Miss St. Clair over a number of times. Not to mention strong (?) Mls Cornish and myself. ()f ten we had to "crawl on our hands and knees. Miss St. Clair had to help Miss Cornish; Mr. Gregory had more than his ha.ids full with poor sick me. Tho thought of my suffering makes ni" j weak yet. I entreated Mr. Gregory to i go on and let me lie down to die. really wished to die. I was so Blck that oVivth would have been welcome- have heard people say, who have crossed tho ocean and be:n very sea sick, that to tlK-m at that time life had no charm. So it was with me. Then, too, I was in agony with the piercing redd. The higher we went tho more Intense was the cold, the fiercer the wind and the sicker I became. Mr. Gregory's hands wre now so stiff, with the cold that It was next to Impossible for him to push me along. To get down and rub my hands In the snow was out of the question for me In my sick state. Mr. Gregory did it for me as long ns he could move his hands. Just a little while more and our hands would have been frozen. 'Hie l ongest Mile. There never was nor will be such an other long mile and three quarters us that was. We came to the conclusion that Chirp was no summit to Pike's P''ak. The last grade is a terribly stei p and long one, and when I saw, In utter dlspair, I threw myself on my face on the frozen snow and walled; "()h; 1 can't! 1 can't!" Patient Mr. Gregory pleaded with me to make one lai-t attempt. Tills one grade? finished and we should be at the top. Thi n our rtit'feiing would be over. We should l ave warmth and rest. Do you know what tins;- words meant to us? I forced myself up and on. At last, oh! happy, happy moment, we raw the sig nal KLutioii. A few more weary, weary r.Li'i and I wis lying on the door sill. i Tncy canied me In, unable to speak or moe, but still c oi;.-tIous. II; was qiillH a while "before J was able to do anything but shriek with the awful i'.il!i In my hands and race'. They rubbed m;. face and hands wiHi snow anil Ice hour I water, and In about a half on was allowed to go to the fire. Then I had first one chill and then an itlii'r. Inde.d, I had such severe chills, and for so long a time, that I be gan to wonder if they ever would stop, or was I to sin ml the rest of my life shaking. As soon ns Mr. Caldwell saw that I was alive, he and the telegraph operator , took shawls and went In well of the giiln. They found them at the foot of that Inn.'-, steep grade Miss St. Clair rub bing Miss Cornish's hands with snow; Miss St. Clair was m ither sick nor freezing. She was only weak from bat tling with that terrific hurrleane'. She surely Is as tough ns leather. It is simply marvelous how well she stood the trip. I really expected the two men would bring In both the girls either dead eir dying. Imagine my amazement when I saw Miss St. Clair coming In without any he lp, throw over both her shawls, come briskiy up to the fire, rub her hands to gether and say: "My! but isn't It cold. Do let us have pome hot coffee and a warm lire akfast at once." The thought of breakfast made me shiver. Miss Cornish's hands were fiei'zlng when they brought her in, and she suffered about us much as I did when they be gan to thaw. The black cook soon had a hot steam ing breakfast of coffee, hot mils, fried eggs, mutton chops and fried potatoes ready, liy the way, you may or may not know that It takes two hours and a half to boil eggs on the Peak. You can put your hand Into boiling water without burning. I tried it. Miss Sf. Clair and Mr. Caldwell nte a hearty breakfast. The others of us scarcely tasted anything. We paid $5 for the breakfast. I forgot to tell that we paid SI.-j each for sitting around the fire at the eilel cabin. It seemed cheap to us then. Mr. Ci'ldwell had reached tho top at 8 p. ni. the night be fore with his fingers front bitten. He has since had no feel ing at all In his fingers. Just before he came In sight of the signal station a stupor stole over him nnd he lay down In the snow. lie was just dropping off In the fatal sleep when ho realized his danger and forced himself to go on. We had telephoned from the Saddle House telling him we should stay there ail night. The Summit nt l.nst. It was 7.;!0 a. m. Sunday when we rVuched the top. We stayed there un til the trail came up at 11.80 a. m. with seventeen passengers. Only erne was sick a young lady. She was uncon scious most of the time she was up there'. Just as soon ns tho train reached a couple of thousand feet lower altitude she was herseir again. Those who came up on the train missed the grand scenery we had had curly In the morning. Until D.IIO n. m. wc could see nothing below us but seift billowy clouds. The sun was shining em the Peak above them. Then they cleared away and we had a view of hundreds and hundreds of miles, Colo rado Soring lo.ik.d ."bout as large as a dining room table'. We could see our school. It looked like a toy. It Is hard ly necessary to ray we took the train down tile mountain. We left the Peak at 11,30 and reached the station nt Maniton a little rter 1 o'clock. We took a callage through Manlton to the electric car uud reached the school at !!.1.r p. m. Loud and long was the np plauso which greeted us. We were not any worse for our tiip after a day or two. Mr. Gregory went on to Ken tucky that night. No more Pike's Peak on foot for me. Miss SI. Clair says slu would like to go again, but she does not want me along. She could not stand another such fright ns she had when she saw Mr. Gregory carrying me Into the Saddle House. I wemder what will happen to me next? Neilhlng short eif a trip with Peary will ' seem like anything to me. Minnie Powell. Hitherto lixcmpt. Prom tho Detroit Tribune'.
