Cove .Oreuon, April 2"ith. I8S7.
Enrrou Srorr: Please allow me
space in your paper for si brief descrip
tion of this beautiful place The Cove.
It is situated just beneath the gold and
jewel decked queen of the granite
mountain, Mount. Fanny, whose history
renders tame the tales of the Arabian
Nights, and makes all Tables and fairy
sloiies seem almost commonplace.
Probably many gorgeous legend and
romance have found full icsili.atinn
here. The wildest- dreams of oriental
pools and lomaneers, the weird resplen
dent creations of magi and genei readi
ly become living facts, among our mir
ieal wiought crag and canyons. The
stibliniest glories of the Alps, or the
picturesque savagery of the Tyrol or
the softer beauties of ICillarney and
Xaples, dwindle into insignificance by
comparison with the stupendous
scones that meet the gaze at every
turn, when on some towering summit.
Vast peaks whose crowns of everlasting
snow and ice glitter in the sunlight far
above where stoi ni and torrents war.
Clianns so profound that their yawn
ing depth scum glimpses of the fath
omless caverns where phitnnian shad
ows walk. Cataracts whose crystal dis
solve to snowy foam and spray long be
fore they strike the. rocky basins below.
Here you lind a realm of giant crags
and fathomless abysses, whirlpools and
eddies a hind of cloud wreathed
heights and awful depths, rocks aud
tumbling stream and living spray,
where rainbows cast their' glittering
coronet around the mountains queen
ly brow, and radiant irinrs dailee in
ninny a romantic gorge. Hero wo find
a fairyland whore elves and gnome
might sport ami make their home.
Here certainly is the tourist' paradise
a land for sight-seors and lovers of
nature in her stibliniest and lovliost
moods. I lot. springs that possess many
medicinal virtues tiro found in nearly a
score of place along the base of the
mountains. Streams of water, pure as
over Mowed from the distilleries of Hu
skies ripplo aud tumble through the
canyons and furnish water power for
the beautiful little city below. United
with all the advantages of scenery and
weather, wo have also the best educa
tional system in Eastern Oregon. As
cension School (ti boarding school for
girls) oilers superior advantages to
young ladies desiring toobtaina polish
ed education. The school is establish
ed on a firm basis, having an endow
ment fund of .$20,000. Leighton Ac
ademy vies with any institution of
learning for young men wishing to pur
sue a literary or business career. Cove,
also, supports a lino public school,
which ranks second to none, and is
continually sending forth her future
To eastern seekers for a home wo
would say conio to the Cove, or Grande
Konde valley, where snow capped peaks
are over in sight, where every breath is
full of vigor, whuro the eye and heart
in ay feast on all that is most sublime
in mountain or valley, cateract.crag or
canyon, and whore nature from her
trango lahratoric pour forth her
wondrous healing floods that need no
angels pinion to stir them in order to
give them potency for the relief of hu
man woe. Hero may you dwell on
lake or mountain side, in the fertile
valley, or the beautiful plain, in a laud
of meadows aud frnit trees, or fields of
golden grain under your feet a carpet
of flowers, and above you the bluest of
heavens resting it arch on the walls
of the surrounding mountains.
