10 The Augusta Seminary Anmial. he carefully spread over it the red table-cloth of the simple parlour, and retired. Soon the door again opened, and, to the accompani- ment of a cracked melodeon, while the people chanted as best they could, the two clergyman, in their white gowns and mountain boots, marched in and on toward the cloth-covered box, which it now appeared was to serve for reading desk. Then they went on with a ritual as long and formal as if it were to sound, not in the little room with its low ceiling and board walls, but through the spacious aisles and lofty vaulting of West- minister. When they came to the Creed, all devoutly faced toward the east where the altar ought to have been, and continued. To the faithful perhaps it was solemn, but it almost convulsed us; finally all knelt, — there were no hassocks, two of the men had to kneel in the middle of the floor, — and when I looked up, and saw in front of me the large boots of the men, with soles at least half an inch thick studded with great nails, all serious thoughts fled forever. At last the service was over, and we escaped upstairs to laugh irreverently. That evening the rain stopped, the sun came out for awhile, and just before dark, we saw the Alpine glow upon the near peaks of the Jungfrau and the Sil- berhorn . The next morning the sun was bright, and we thought we could get up to Murren at least. Such a climb ! Up, up, up, slipping and sliding over the muddy paths, barely hold- ing up with our alpenstocks, sometimes wading through the water flowing down the rocks; I was nearly dead when it came in sight. The ascent once accomplished, all our weariness was forgotten as we turned and saw the glittering Breithorn, Grosshorn and Mittaghorn against a sk}^ blue as sky can only be when washed b}^ a three da5^s ' rain, and with the dense whiteness of snow peaks standing out against it. Directly across the valley rose the Schwarze Monch, like one great rock thousands of feet high, with the waterfalls, threads of spun silk, gently falling to the awful depth below; looking over its grim top was the Jungfrau, and behind it the Mdnch and the Eiger.
