the phases of 1
ar and undistui bed
lourishmg and at
disease, plenty ot
out-door exercise without fatigue
or risk ol hurtful exposure. Many
observers behove these mountains
of western North Carolina to be tic
very thing as to climate. My im
pression is a favorable one as to
this spot, the valley of Flat Creek
aud its adjacent ridges. The hot
weeks oi .Inly and August arc very
pleasant here: they might be. -till
more- so some thousands of feet
higher, though care must lo taken
to avoid a point where the air ever
iiecomes too cold; the air. on the
whole, is very dry and balmy: water
is pure and like "the nectar of the
gods." Put these good things to
gether with all else I have named
above, and it may be tor all the
year round 1 using in winter glass
galleries protected lor exercise
whenever the air was too raw a
consumptive might live here and
keep his fearful enemy at bay.
While men of wealth are com
bining to build railroads and run
lines ol great vessels to meet the
demands ol travel and commerce,
let some of them think of this en
terprise, yvhieh will pay anil be
-uch an enormous benefit to man
kind. 1'roni the lofty sides of the
"Craggy " or "(l rev beard" could
bo scaled and if at height oi four
thousand live hundred to five thou
sand leet found better than spots
like this on the railroad at two
thousand four hundred feet eleva
tion, the great "Lung Cure" might
be located on them.
As far as I can judge from ac
counts of others, the very summits
of the great ranges aro too foggy ;:
and cold. Even the "Cloudland
Hotel"' on the Koan, at six thou
sand feet, though on a great tlat ex
panse, is hardly suitable. I have
seen it stated that the French phy
sicians have found greatest success
with situations under rive thousand
feet ; Davos is mnch higher, but has
a peculiar elevation of temperature
from reileet 1011 from the all-enveloping
snow . and Dr. Felix Oswald,
of New York, recommends three
thousand or lour thousand feet in
North or South Carolina. In my
native county anil the adjoining
one south of it Nelson and Am
herst 111 Virginia, probably as good
points con Ul be found, requiring'
branch railroads. .
Let the mere seeker of recreation
or pleasure, the traveler and the
worn tmt merchant or other business
man, the jaded politician, have his,
Saratogas and N'owports. his White
Sulphurs and Thousand Islands:
but yvhat I plead for is something
very dilTerent. sacred to the restor
ing of health in a disease at once
the most prevalent and the most I
fatal. l'At'I. WHITKIIF.AIh I

The Chinese claim for their ar- '
lists successes qmte equal to what
is reported of the celebrated Creek j
painters Xeuxis and Parrhasius.
The former painted fruit so like the '
real that when his picture was ex-!
hibited. birds came and tried to
feed upon the painted grapes. e- '
lighted yvith this tribute to hi
talent, he Ivegged of his rival that
he would remove the veil from be- :
fore his canvas and exhibit his 1
work, only to find that he had him
self been deceived, for the veil was
a painted one. and was itself what
the rival arti.-t had brought to show
111 proof ot hi.- -kill. A writer from
Peking say .-:
Many anecdotes arc on hand re
garding the achievements of the
old masters. Thus, we are told of
a painter in the third century who.
yvheii he had finished a screen for
the Fmperor, added some '.lies to
the picture by a few touches of the
pencil here and there. Great was
ins gratification at seeing his
Maic.-ty take up a handkerchief to

piiea-ants into a mural decoration

Some foreign envoys, who had

lie telegiaphs ,111 address to h.s
comrade.- of the Grand Army, that
the situation is that there is a class
ot citizens y ho.-e houses are more
or less shattered and who have no
means wherewith to repair them."
This class and those yvho being
houseless have nevertheless suffer
ed loss ot' per.-otia', property require
aid from abroad. It will be to
them a continued calamity unless
help i- remlcicd. 1 feel confident
that every comrade is anxious to
do yvhat he can to bring comfort
and happii:e-s to this ,-tiicken peo
ple. I therefore request depart
ment commanders to call upon each
post ill their department to at once
appoint a committee yvhic.h shall
collect such sums as the comrades
anil their fellow-citi.ens in cities,
villages and 0:1 farms may desire
to contribute, to be sen; to W. A.

'The city council of Charleston

to the entire staff and employees of

authorized tosentl a further -Sl'O. 000
to the mayor of Charleston. Letters
were received from the vicinity of
Charleston, asking assistance, and
they were referred to the mayor of,
Charleston for his consideration. I
Wm. K. Dodge, chairman of the (
committee, stated that he had re
ceived a letter from mayor Courte

and sanitary reasons now compelled
a return to such houses as were
habitable. They could live for a
time without plastering and other
discomforts and the people were all
cheerful and more calm, and he
adtled that the people of Charles
ton would hold as beyond price,
through all time, their identifica
tion with the common American
citizenship which came to them in
their great trials, strong to help,
strong to lift up. Charleston would
never forget all that had been done

of the Republic: "Dear Sir: Nothing
could have been more opportune than
your visit to this afllicted city. The in
domitable spirit of this people has al
ready shown itself in the activity of the
relief committees, and they have now
reached a point where the iiue.-tion of
food and shelter is entirely under their
own control, but upon the small property-owners,
to whom their little dwel
lings were their all. the weight of the
shock has fallen with its principal force.
Often encumbered with mortgages,
these structures cannot be repaired
without help. My knowledge of and
my association w ith these people have
given me abundant opportunity p. learn
these facts, and I have been greatly im
pressed with the immediate necessity
of relief to them. Funds must be raised
by voluntary contributions to assist
this class, and thus by relieving them a
cla-ss above them is free to restore tin ir
own injured property, which they are
able and willing to do. The great or
ganization which you represent coul i
do nothing more in accordance with
their principles and practice than to
assist in this great Christian effort.
Very truly, yours. S. YV. Crawford.

There is no particular change in the
situation today, but the work of rough
repairing is going on over every part ol
the city. It is impossible to restore
buildings to their farmer condition, but
they are putting on u better appear
ance, and tiie very hum of labor tends
to lighten the situation. Tne relief com
mittee today considers the condition of
Summerville and the villages along the
line of the South Carolina Railway, and
of the town of Mount Pleasant, oppo
site Charleston, on Cooper river, and
resolved unanimously that the losses in
these places should be provided for in
the ratio of their amount on th- -aiac
basis as the losses in Charh-.-ton.
Must of the tents and shelter- provid
ed for the refugees in the c.tv have
been removed, and the int.pt. n i- to
have all cleared away by the o;,i of the

Cyclone in Virginia.
oviCeCK. Va.. Sept. 13. The most
u-rrilic cyclone that ever visited the
rliustern shore of Virginia within the
memory of living men swept through
this town Sunday night, overturning
houses, blowing down trees and leaving
destruction in its track. The storm ap
proached from a southwestern direc
tion, and was preceded by a long and
vivid display of lightning. Just before
ti.e ciaa aic hurst upon the town a fun
inl -haped cloud was seen approaching,
yy .tit a i.'ji. roaring noise that awak
en. 1 those who had retired to Bleep.
1 'nancock is situated between two
s of Unancock creek, a broad and I
p estuary of the Chesapeake bay. I
cyclone in passing over the south
arm of the creek took up a huge

:.- w; ie. and lav through the west- i
or 1 yver end of the town, where
l uii aings are cot close together,
erwise the destruction would have
neon much greater. Nearly all the
trees in that part of the town were
blown down, many great oaks that had
v.-.thstood the storms of a century being
t 'rn up by the roots or twisted off a few
Let hl ' v..- tiie ground.
Ca;t. J hn II. I.. Hopkins had his

dis Church, containing a bell
ing more than five hundred
yvas bloivn over and set fifteen
or twenty yards away in the middle of
the street. Capt. Thomas Johnson, the
. '..".e-t inhabitant of the town, had the
front p. n h and all the chimneys of his
('.yet 1,. tig-house blown down, and his
barn . .-tiLR.- and other outhouses blown
t ntii-. ly away, though the horses in the
staples were left unhurt.
As the cyclone approached the north
err: branch of the creek it seemed to
gather fre.-h strength, and swept every
thing before it. The house in which
Shepperd Horsey, a worthy colored man,
lived yvas torn to fragments and, with
all the contents, blown across the creek,
s uie of tne heavy timbers of the house
yy ere blown nearly a mile, and a pitcher
and a piece of ice yveighing five or six
pounds were carried several hundred
yards across the creek. Horsey lost
everything he had, including "about
fifty dollars in money, and if he and
his wife had not been out at the time
they would hardly have escaped death.
Iu crossing the southern arm of the
creek the cyclone again gathered up a
great column of w ater, which it poured
down on the land, cutting holes in the
earth. As the storm passed through
the family burying ground on the farm
of Mrs. Catherine Poulson the wind
blow some of the largest tombstones
ov, r. wldle it broke others off like
reed- close to the ground.
