THE DESERT YOSEMITE.
Fantastic, Beauty of the MuUuntuweap
For fnntnslic outline nnd brilliant
nml vnried coloring Mukuntuwenp
Xntionnl monument, in southeast
ern Utnh, popularly known as the
Little Zion canyon, probably equals
nnv snot on this continent, ltcccnt
visitors have called it "the desert
Yosemitc," others "the mimic
flrnnd canyon." It inevitably sug
gests both. "You can't seo it with
out whouling," reports one recent
The Mormons of a former gen
eration chose this valley for a ref
uge in the event of being driven
from Zinn, as tliev called Salt Lako
City, and named it Little Zion. It
is locally called Littlo 'Ann canyon
today. The north fork of the mud
dy Virgin river flows through it,
and in the spring streams cascade
from the lofty summit walls. Many
fine trees ash, maple, oak, spruce
and others grow on the valley
The canyon is a mighty cleft, as
if tho mountain had been violently
divided to obtain a segment. The
walls are inconceivably carved into
domes, half domes, colonnades and
temples. Ono gigantic elill suggests
a battleship and is locally called the
Tlio faces of sonic- of the wulla
contain thousands of square feet of
plane surface upon which tho ele
ments havo sketched various llgures.
At ono point 'may be seen the pic
ture of a woman, a horse and a pig,
forming n distinct group. At an
oilier an eagle perches, trtio to this
imhln bird'rf instinct, high upon the
cliff. At other points crypts have
ltfen formed in the walls by the
shelling olT nf the slono otirfacu in
which may be seen other forms
scumiugly iH'ulptured. Nature seem)
to have fashioned here a line art
gallery of stupendous proportions.
Tho coloring is beyond descrip
tion, (ilisteniug white is lite basic
color. Hclow this a strip of blood
red mindtouo has weathered into
foriimtions resembling those of the
(I rami canyon. Tiioro am thou
Aiudis of feet of polished white sand
hIoiio vertically streaked with ver
milion, like a Roman sash. There
nie tiinkrt in endless similes.
Tlic canyon is more than ten
mile long and from 1, '.()() to i!,000
f&et wide. The neighborhood is
rich in striking phenomena. There
are natural bridges of great size and
Iwiulv. 'I'lii country was nettled by
Mornioiu many years ago and pos
soSfH'H much historical interest.
The Pipe nf Peace.
Tlio North American Indian usu
ally made his pipes out of u kind o
Mont Known as red pipe Hlouc, o
which there worn largo deposits in
tlio old Sioux countrv, and the
('real Spirit is Hiiil to have given
liis iiidorMMiicnl to this particular
nwlcnnl, wlueli might havo lieeu
Sioux monopoly, in tliiei words:
I ill Mono is red. It is vour
IImIi. It belongs to you all. Out
of it nwktf no more tomahawks, war
ImtiihuU nor Kcalpiug kuivos. Uso
it only to umko the pipe of peace

would propitiate me anil do my
Lincoln and a Laugh.
One tiny when Lincoln's cabinet
mot the president asked one of the
jiiuiuwn if ho had read Xasbv s hit
oM. .Mr. Stanton autere, stern,
(llgfuutMl took the president to
tnxk, Mying ho ought to bo thinking
of sterner things. Mr. Lincoln re
"jStmitou, I think 1 havo tho bur
iIom of this nation on my heart,
lmt laughter is my safety valve. I
am sure that if I couldn't laugh
MUiictiines I'd 'bust.'"
