THE GIRLS FOOT IT GAILY.
SENATOR HAMPTON’S DAUGHTER
WRITES OF A 300-MILE TRAMP.
The Dear Old Gentleman’s Experience
In a Thunderstorm—ln Weyer’s Cave
—At the Grave of Lee—A 200 Yards’
Dash at the End of a Twonty-eig-ht-
Mlle Tramp—Capturing a Kitchen on
Top of the Peaks.
In a letter to the New York World Miss
M. S. Hampton says: It was a novel
thought that suggested a summer pedestrian
tour through the mountains of Virginia,
but a party of congenial spirits was organ
ized, a course of about 300 miles mapped
out, and a start made from the university,
near Charlottesville, June 30.
Our party consisted of the very dearest of
old gentlemen of the school of “ye olden
time,” who in his younger days had many a
time driven his coach-and-four though this
same region in going to and from the
Springs, two young ladies not afraid of
roughing it and a Tong walk, and three
young gentlemen as escorts.
Our chaperon, the “Colonel,” with gallant
hand drove the vehicle that carried our
traps and luggage under the scats and
strapped on behind, and us, too, when we
wanted to make a very long distance in one
day, and the roads were very good and tho
sun was hot. Our friends bad jeered us
with the prophecy that we would either
ride all the way, or else turn back in a
couple of days, but we were so full of pleas
ant anticipations that they alone drowned
these forelx)dings, and we started with
hearts as cloudless as tho sky, and happy as
that bright day of sunchine in J uno.
On leaving the university tho roads were
hot and dusty, so we kept, to the carriage
till 11, when wo went into camp on tho
banks of a very beautiful stream that runs
along the base of the Blue Ridge Moun
tains, whore we lunched, chatted and slept
till 4, when off we started for Brown’s Gup.
At 5 o’clock we took to the road, and be
fore dark had walked seven miles by the
pedometer te Nimrod Brown’s, Here,
where tho ascent of the mountains begins,
we found a quaint, ohl-fasliioned house,
that, from its size showod that, it had been
used for a hostelry before the rail
roads came. Mrs. Brown received
us very hospitably but regarded us
with a quiet amusement, seeming to think
that we, os]>eciaUy tho ladies, would soon
find walking poor fun. On retiring to our
rooms a little dusky damsel of 14 summers
came iu and said: “Miss, is you jest from
the city! I hears in Richmond they is
wearing black frocks trimmed in white.”
This pix>r child we afterward found out had
never in her fife been more than five miles
from home, but we posted her as best we
could as to the freaks of “Dame Fashion,”
and slio soon made her exit to digest it all
in her dreams.
By 5 in the morning we were started
again and before the sun was over the moun
tains we were passing well up the gap,
stopping ever and anon to drink in the ex
quisite views that surely looked loveliest in
the early morn. Every turn in the road
gave new glimpses of the valley below and
the sight was such as to make us wisli that
wo arose oftener to see the beautiesof dawn.
It was our programme to push on so as to
reach Weyer’s Cave that afternoon, but
when on the top of the mountain we were
turned aside some four miles to visit the
“Black Bocks,” a luous natural truly.
The crest and one side of the moun
tain, covering aliout fourteen acres,
are a mass of metallic rocks, without a
speck of vegetation save a vigorous growth
of black li hea. which covers the rocks and
gives them their name. Tho people say
that the lightning clouds lower around their
crests, and we could easily see how, through
time, the lightning had rent and splint these
masses of rock. There was something so
black and infernal about them that it made
us feel that they formed an inverted funnel
that carried lightning and its thunderings
down to tho bowels of the earth. But how
different were tho otner feelings engen
dered! The view is neither so expansive
nor so grand as that we subsequently saw
from the Peaks of Otter, yet it is surpass
ingly beautiful The climb to the high
est pinnacle of tho rocks Is both very diffi
cult and a somewhat dangerous feat, but is
well worth the exertion and risk.
PLAYING IT ON THE COLONEL.
Going down the gap wo were oaugiit in a
most dreadful rain and hail storm. We saw
the clouds, as black as night, hovering over
and around the “Black Hocks,” when sud
denly they descended upon us, first rolling
down iu torrents of rain, then in hail, hail
ing. stones larger than a pigeon egg and
some a-s fantastic as the rocks above, ami
then in rain again.
Avery amusing incident occurred here.
We were just having dinner when tho
storm came down. Wo had driven the car
riage under a rickety old shed by tho road
side and made our spread on the grass by a
stream, when wo were precipitated to shed
and carriage by the sudden storm. The car
riage was given to the ladies and the gen
tlemen moved around about it waiting u|>on
us. The roof of the shed admitted the ruin
us through a sieve, and of course the gen
tlemen were getting wet. Howover, wo
hail wrapped our dear old undo up in one
of our gossamers and felt that ho would be
saved. He is now To years old, and of
eourso our whole journey depended upon
our taking tho very liest care of him. Woo
ing his hat was thoroughly wet someone
suggested that the hood of the gossamer be
pulled up over Ids head. This was no sooner
suggested than off wont his hat and one of
the young gentlemen hurriedly pulled up
the hood. Now the hood hud been hanging
there all this time catching the cold ram
water, and as it came down over lmor
, uncle’s head it let loose about a pint of ice
'vuter tlmt rim down his back to tho very
solos of his feet.
IVe reached Woyer's Cave that evening,
hut. as it still rained und the cave was some
IKK) yards from the hotel wo put off its ex
ploration til! tho morning.
The morning broke clear, and by 5 wo
were passing through tho cave’s silent
mouth. Over two hours were spent in
"diking through tho immense rook cham
bers, while we gazed upon and admired the
fur famed wonders there. In grandeur and
in its imposing effect tho cave resembles
Luray; otherwise it cannot compare with
those caverns, which are so beautiful in
their dazzling radiance compared to the
dark formations here. Then again tho in
dividual curiosities iu Luray are more nuin
crous and far more perfect, yet tho “Fish
Market (rock fish) anil “Overturned
>\ direr" hero nro wonderful, und tho
"I'M 1 Blanket” is splendid.
While still looking for the wonderful wo
found at the extreme end of the cave,
stretched across tho hollow of a broken
stalagmite, a new-made web, with the liv
jtig spider resting upon it waiting its prey.
The spider was colorless and transparent,
and seemed so delicate that one could thins
it lived without food. As tho pedometer
registered tlu'oo miles for the cave wo
Judg'xl that the spider must have been more
than a mile underground.
the natives and the alpenstocks.
Ci-ifting from Weyer’s Cave we passed
ever the histoide and battle-stained valley
el Virginia to Staunton, where our arrival,
0 iwhere, created a great ones tion All
"u the streets turned to gaze, and even tho
shopkeepers peeped out at the novel
strangers. We doubtless did seem strange
in these |juris, for wo ull looked picturesque
in our walking costumes, carrying our long
el penstocks; which proved : blessing indeed
m the long tramp, helping us up mountains,
over rocks und across streams, which, when
not ovor ij foot wide, wo jumped, using the
stocks as a leverage. These alpenstock*
Puzzled the people very much, most of them
thinking they were a sort of fishing-pole,
while none soeined to know what they were
really intended for.
A broken axle detained us at Ntnunton
OV( T night, but getting an oarly start next
■Homing wo inarched along at u good, sbsidy
making ton miles to Buffalo (lap,
we Oopped lot rest ami Utfucr.
Thence we pushed on to Craigsville for j
night lodgings, passing en route the Variety’
and Augusta springs. This day we covered
nineteen miles on foot that went to our
record as the greatest distance made any
one day except the last.
We had now become veterans, and before
4 o’clock the next morning we were up and
ready for a good country breakfast, which
was served, as were all our meals, with the
greatest abundance of tho most delicious
fresh milk and butter, the milk forming our
main diet throughout.
Our programme on starting out on this
expedition was to start as early after day
break as possible and walk till the heat of
the day, then go into camp till 4 or 5, after
which to start out again, walking till night
brought us to some hospitable farm house,
but always keeping within a mile or two of
the carriage, iu case of any accident, of
which, fortunately, there was none, except
the breaking of the axle, ’which occurred in
GVEB the mountains.
The walk over the mountains or through
the valleys in the early morn or late after
noon was very lovely and delightful, but
we found the midday camp good and solid
comfort. The gentlemen first attended to
the horses, unhitched and gave them a feed,
then unloaded the carriage and looked to
tho ladies. We generally found a grass
covered and shady place for camp near by
a spring and on the banks of a running
stream; and after our lunch or dinner, dur
ing which we talked over and. related the
incidents of the morning, interspersed with
anecdotes and bon mots, we spread blankets
and all went to sleep on the ground.
Of all our tramps the walk through Littlo
Calf Pasture Valley and Goshen Pass was
the most delightful. The soft and feminine
beauty of the former bore a contrast to the
rugged and majestic magnificence of the
lattert Through the pass there was a river
on our ieft, perfect of its kind, its crystal
waters now roaring over some rocky steep
and again at rest in some lakolike pool
whero the mountain trout has his home,
while across huge and impressive
crags and boulders On our right is the deli
cate green of early summer wild flowers
peeping out through soft ferns of various
kind, but mainly the delicate maiden’s hair,
and clustering here and there in groups by
the roadside, with rocks and crags hanging
hundreds of feet up ovor our heads. Mix
miles through this grand, wild and beautiful
pass brings us out into a valley opening
down to Lexington, and we soon come to
Rockbridge Barns, where we go into camp
and take a plunge into its invigorating
Though we had left behind us, near the
university, the old homes of Jefferson,
Madison and Monroe, with the graves of the
two former, we felt on coming to Lexington
that wo canto to the Mecca of Virginia,
where are resting the moldering bones of
our two great military heroes, Lee and
Jackson. A Southerner visits their tombs
with a veneration only akin to religion, for
entombed there are the sacred memories of
four years of bloody strife and many years
of trampled pride and poverty. If we went
there then with bowed heads and our hearts
beat with quicker emotions and we felt
drawn nearer to God, it was because wo
thought of them, our people and ourselves.
The following day we reached the Natural
Bridge, and, after spending several hours
there, pushed on to Buchanan, to get a good
night’s rest before starting up the fourteen
mile ascent to the Peaks of Otter.
3,000 feet up.
In this the Toad wound in and out and
round about the mountains, with their crags
and steep places, picturesque and beautiful,
always going upward, till at last a little gap
is reached, one mile from the top. Here
there is only a steep path leading up, but
after an hour's pull it is climbed and we are
on the peaks, 3,000 feet above the valleys
below. What a splendid sight meets us!
Forty counties, with their towns and ham
lets, stretch out at our feet. Here is Bote
tourt immediately below, that seems laugh
ing and smiling like a garden of flowers,
anti Rockbridge, with her variations of
mountain and valley, and we can seo the
James run down to Lynchburg, fortv miles
away, and then turn to lose itself on its
way to Richmond and the sea, while away
oil’ to the west rise the Allegbatiie.s in West
Virginia, and far down to the south stands
a [leak that tells us that North Carolina is
there. Tho air is deliciously cool and
bracing, and sitting on the topmost rock
tho panorama below and round about glis
tens and gleams in the clear sunshine, and
Virginia’s fair valleys and woody moun
tains fill the eye’s vision with sights that no
pen can picture nor hand paint. At sunset
the gorgeousness of the heavens awakes
one’s every artistic fibre, but the approach
of Aurora, spreading the soft light of morn
over this scene, awakes your very soul to
communion with land and sky.
It was so lovely and enchanting here that
we spent two (lays. The hotel is a mere
cabin ezrehod on the summit lietween tho
rocks. There arc rocks to the right of it,
rocks to the left of it, and it is itself the
rockiest structure ever built. There is one
long room below that serves as a dining
room, parlor, office and may be a bedroom
for the one servant, with a loft above that
is divided into two parts, one for the ladies
and one for the gentlemen, with many beds
in ench, but only ono chair and wasnstand
to a division. Tho diet at this “hotel”
consists of chicken, eggs, biscuits, coffee
and g/een rainwater three times a day.
The. fx iking—well, it is only necessary to say
that ohe of the young ladies took charge of
the kitchen after the first meal and cooked
the chicken, eggs, coffee and made the bis
cuits, much te> the delight and apparent
admiration of the gentlemen, who had good
appetites, and who, when thirsty, hud to
mix coffee with the water to destroy the
From the peaks tho return journey was
mude by a more direct route, that con
sumed only three days, but carried us
through the loveliest portion of the valley
of Virginia, where the golden grain was
ripe and harvesting busily going on.
Our last ilay was one probably worth
mentioning, in that it gave the best walk
ing record of any. Night was spent near
Fisherville, but before daybreak we were
all astir. Ahead towered the Blue Ridge
Mountains, that must, be crossed over a
rough road through Kockllsh Gup. and the
university was twenty-eight miles away.
This whole distance was walked by one of
tho ladies in ten hours, and so far was she
from lieing tired or worn out at the end that
siie ran the last 200 y ards, beatiug ono of
Uncle’s ducking did him no harm and wo

loaned him to us for the trip. We are all
sound and well and still talking over what

all, and bo placed among the pleasantest
and happiest days of our lives.
THE EVERLASTING HIGGINS.
Ho Says the Winning Party Ought to

Mr. Eugene Higgins, Appointment Clerk
in the Treasury Departmental Washington,
was a prominent contrast to the dudes.
Every gamblor from around at Phil Daly's
