of the ocean a cloud-hank lay cold and
sombre-looking. TIih sun had strug

trail, stopping now and then to rest
ami to look back. Still beyond and
aliove.cut like athrmd iu tho smoothly
roimdod grass-cusluonod front of the
precipitous slope, we could trace the
graceful windings of tho, path. Wo
crossed numerous rivulets, splashing
down furn-filkd hollows to full over
the cliff into the sea. Hero and thero
tall tigpr lilies bent aud swayed in the
strong breeze, and "painted cups" niad
bright patches of scarlet in soft dull
green of grass and clover that grew
thick tangled mat, all over the coast
hills, high and low", making a pfeasltiitTy
yielding carpet to the treod. A strong
fresh wind swept these airy heiyhti of
the north Pacific, and almust took one
breath sometimes, in midden delicious
We sat down at last, up there, snme
400 feet above the reach of the
breakers, to rest and enjoy the beauti
ful scene. We had taken a position
on the verge of tho precipice, where
far down and beneath the tides had
hollowed out a little bay in the face of
the clitf and formed a snowy beach
where the wave might come to rest
when tired with wild sport outside,
Out in the breakers, beyond, stood a
solitary rock where sea gulls nested
yearly. The young were quite grown
now ami only distinguishable by their
grey plumage. Myriads of the grace
ful creatures wheeled in circles, hover
ing above their barren island home.
Southward, the incoming tide made
a foamy fringe down eight miles of
shining sand. To the left lay low
lake-uemmed valleys, wooded knolls,
running streams and groves of spruce
and pine stretching away to the mouth
of tho river. And in the midst, like a
great gleaming crystal in a setting of
greenest emerald, Lily lake, the love
liest sheet of water on the coast, re.
poses not a stone's throw from tho
beach. Wo could see as plainly as if
but a mile away, where the river, the
sinuous, deep Siuslow, cuuio down and
met the sea, making a spaco of smooth
dark blue in the lino of foaming
How delicious it was up there in
the warm sunshine, to sit, to half re
cline on the ybilding couch; to bask in
the glow, and revel in tho new wild
beauty cf it all. Tho wind blowing
criHp with the smell of tho sea, and
delightfully cool; the muffled music of
the surf mounting ceaselessly, and, at
uncertain intervals, another sonnd, un-
fanuliar, weird, a faintly swelling cry
borne down frcm the north. Away
to westward the boundless blue of the
"beautiful Balboa was" flashed in tho
sunlight. It was a sceno . to haunt
one's dreams with pleasant memories,
to U recalled and relieved often when
days are dull and skies ore laden.
"Look all about and then tell us if
you.see anything that resembles a sea

obeyed, but after careful ' scrutiny of
the coast line reported "nothing.' Our

where a great brown rock, appa-ently
much discolored, showed abovo the

the wind and mournfully dying.

liles, r di not remember just tliedis
tance, for the trail wound in and out
and up and down tho steep groen
slopes, now hanging over tho sea till it
seemed a misstep might send one head
long into the breakers; and again ro
ceding into the ferny depths of some
ravine, so narrow, so sharply cleft, ono
could almost reach across it. Nothing
daunted, however, wo set out, after re
ceiving directions from Captain 0 ,
to visit the sea lions in their home.
After a brisk walk of half an hour we
entered a dense lir thicket, and through
this descended to the fidgo of tho clilT,
where, clinging to a scrub pino for
support, we could look down into the
toiling r surf beneath. Somo grass
grew in clefts in tho almost perpendio
ular face of tho rock, and by means of
this we carefully let ourselves down
till the showers of spray, flung up by
angry waves, warned us to descond no
further. We were not yet in sight of
tho seals, though the melancholy sound
of their roaring tono above the thunder
of the surf. Patiently working our way
along the face of the cliff, clinging to
rough projections and finding a scant
foothold iu ils clefts and crevices, we
reached at length a comparatively safo

been t wico that number on the rocks
alone, while tho breakers seemed to
fairly swarm with smooth shilling
forms. Unwieldy and awkward as
these interesting creatures are on land,
nothing can exceed their graceful evo
lutions in tho water. We wero so closo
that we could toss a stono over among
them with caHe, yet should have liked
a nearer point of observation had it
been possible to obtain it. As it was
wo sat there with the deafening crash
of tho breakers in our ears and salt
spray in our faces, and watched them
for an hour or more, reluctant at the
last to retrace our steps along the dan
gerous path, and wave these modern
mermaids a final farewell; bo mild, so
appealingly human like, wore they in
expression, so afTectionato in manner.

The News of Tortland is the first
Republican paper of any importance
that has openly favored an extra ses

just the proper thing if Governor
