IN A STORM ON HELVELLYN. An exciting experience has fallen to the lot of Lance-Corporal White and Sapper Taylor, who have been engaged on the ordnance of Cumberland Lake district. Having to verify the plans of the boundary between Cumberland and Westmorland, they ascended Helvellyn from Wythburn, and about midway were caught in a blinding snowstorm. They could not see 10 yards in front, and their difficulties were increased by the slippery condition of the path, which was covered by several inches of frozen snow. The wind threatened to carry them away. They, however, struggled to a height of 2850 feet and completed their work. They were on the mountain for four hours. Through havi ng left their greatcoats behind that they might travel better, they suffered severely from the intense cold. After a descent, even more perilous than the ascent, they reached the Nag's Head much exhausted and thankful that they were alive.
