mountains aay, Deiore yesterday at 10
o'clock, a. m. They are" now at Mr. B.J

ville ji;!allB.r.:JLneiriiQurney ior the last
two days has been very tedious, somfr
times, perilous, though interesting. The
roadwhictt, they have followed is that
whieh- leads from Morgan ton toliaKer
villeVia Linville Falls. A It? Is now in a
neglected condition and Is seldom trav
eled.: Unmistakably, it is the;, worst
road, in the Southern States. Jfrom the
immense amount or sandstone ana
granite that lies . along, its ,,patft , it is
called The-Yellow Stone." ; . . -
Let me give your readers-n minute :
account ofrJihe pilgxims's wanderings:
At ten o'clock last Thursday morning
they began toseendthe Lin,villenp:un
tain.' At noon frequent crfes -for wtter
were heard, but no water s could : be
found. At 3 o'clock, however, a fepririg
was .found, and by, common consent a
halt was made. Preparations were be
ing made for dinner when a heavy rain
commenced falling.: The pilgrims got
wet, of course. At 4 o'clock the jour
ney was resumed. The ' pilgrims had
thought, , hoped, aye, prayed, that the
top of the mountain had been reached,
but hill after hill still appeared before
them. At 6 o'clock the mules balked.
A long rope was tied to the wagon
tongue, and soon twelve sturdy boys,
assistinc two lazy mules, were plodding
their way over the precipitous heights.
At half -past seven a search was made
for water, but none was found. On and
on the pilgrims marched, till the snad
ows of night began to' deepen around
them. Higher and higher they climbed
till the summit was reaehe4U It -was.t
now 8 o'clock. The wind was cold, and
heavy rain clouds swept through the
sky. Many searches were made for
water, but in vain. Far up in the clouds,
without water to drink or bread to eat ;
on a summit less than twenty feet wide,
the top of the Dog's Back mountain;
more than three thousand five hundred
feet above the level of the sea,he weary-pilgrims
laid them down to sleep.
Next morning at the first peep of
dawn all eyes were turned to the east.
iTbef sun came upland the vlefw was
grantt .vio uieir iit, w iubwuuo ul
tiaifia mue. stood tne -iiawx s uiu ana
Table Bock. At the foot of the mouhr
tain a stream thundered, unseen, to
ward the beautiful valley that stretched
away to the east. Looking still further
to the right (by the fog) could be; seen
the course of the Catawba. It lay! like
a mighty snake, across the plain. Away
in the distance, seventeen miles to the
east, was Morganton. To complete the
scene, as tar as the eye could see tne
South mountains stood mingling their
clohd-capped summits with thesky.
ilt o u uuun lux tuc oaiuc uiuiiiiug,
water having been found, and breakfast
being had, the pilgrims, after having
fasteafor nearly an entire day, again
resumed their journey. At noon they
stopped. Dinner was had, but as they
were again preparing to set iortn, it
was found that one of their number-
was missing. " Calls were madeitratmo
answer was heard. Slowly the minutes
fiassed by, till the pilgrims began to fear
est the missing one be lost. Yes, he
was lost! Lost on a mountain wnere
no human dared to dwell; where even
the feathered songsters feared to carol
forth their roundelays ; where nothing
lived save wild woods and savage
beasts. Away the pilgrims sped over
the stonv heiehts and down the craggy
cliffs in search of the prodigal child.
The fingers of the clock marked on the
flight of time. The pilgrims returned,
but alone. "Charlie, O, Charlie !" was
the call that -resounded from the deep
ravine below, but no Charlie came. rJ he
horns were blown : blast after blast leu
upon the air till the leaves of the trees

all .was still as death. From the awful
depths' below atr echo seemed to whis
per, "ne is lost.
The sun was now last sm King in tne
west. Tn dednair the Dilerrims went
their wav. At nightfall they reached
Mr.Fanklia's;iat which, place trey are
now abiding. "How -glad Jweref their
hearts, when, on arriving at that point,
they found the prodigal awaiting tnem.
For theflast two days the pilgrims
have traveled without seeing a single-
dwelling finding but two springs of
water and meeting out! two Human uc
V erily, they have passed tnrougnt tne
wilderness into tne promised lano.
