to find footing and the storm in all its fury was witnessed Old inhabitants here say such a storm has not struck the island in a dozen years Two yachts were caught and wrecked on the shore within sight of the writer and the inmates were compelled to swim ashore by aid of help from the land There are other points of interest Lovers Leap a high and jaggy cliff and rock extending into the lake perhaps being the next in beauty and grandeur to Arch Rock The Island is owned in the most part by the National Government and is set aside as a national park It abounds in historical interest and if

Navigation Company and it is one that is lated to please the most fastidious The steamers the cuisine and the furnishings are such that one can not help but be pleased If one seeks cooling breezes and de- lightful sensations let him take Cleveland line of boats and he will not miss it in any sense ing the guide books though is lated to mislead rather be- cause the central idea there is that this is the sportsman's natural heaven that game and fish abound everywhere and that all that is necessary to make a splendid catch ol fish is to bring with you sufficient muscle to draw them forth from the depths of the lakes and straits The writer has been here a week and ha the first time to hear of a magnificent catch having been made by any other than the professional fishermen of this region and they fish with nets as a matter of business and not as sportsmen fish Game may be here but the antelope and deer that grace the tables of the hotels seems like a canned article of Ohio or Texas beef However the writer of this is not a sportsman and may not be able to grasp the beauties of these northern lakes and the surrounding wilds in this measure He never could see in the Jim came in rambling the hills in search of the inhabitants of the for tsts whether quadrupeds or feathered songsters nor has he enlisted with zest in the sport of taking the finny of the lakes and rivers but not withstanding this defect in his early education he has no hesitancy in ad- vising all who seek rest and recreation to visit these northern resorts to take i he lake trip and rest on this Isle of Mackinac within the magnificent summer of Mr Plank If the tired worker or the invalid ever or whatever the condition in lite desires rest he certainly can find it here but one must not come to this island expecting to see great sights or wonder ul freaks of nature in thing that is mentioned in the guide books Such places as Scott's Cave and some others are shams and frauds calculated to deceive the un wary and fill up the guide book The people of Coshocton county can go out in their hills and valleys and find scenes that doubly discount those to be found here but they can not find the lake breezes the tall and graceful pines the symmetrical cedars the juniper bushes and such as are dent to this region There are scenes here though that excel and inspire one with greater respect and tion for the forms of nature Arch Rock on the eastern shore of ac Island is the one sight on this island that is worth the entire journey and is probably excelled in granduer in but few places on the continent It located on tne eastern shore about one mile by foot path and three miles by drive way from Plank's Grand tel It is exactly what the name arch rock The arch is a of a circle perfect in every sense and stands 150 feet above the level of the lake It is composed of what seems to be shale and is at the top perhaps ten feet in thickness It is perhaps three feet wide and it re- quires a steady nerve to cross it when one realizes that a fate step means an instant burling to death on the rocks and craggs below A stranger to these climes would naturally suppose that the frosts of winter and the rains ot summer would soon destroy this freak of nature but the in- habitants tell that there has been no perceptible wearing of the rock in many years The writer visited this rock at an opportune as the wont storm of the season i truck these lakes The wind storm was preceded by a dashing rain lasting perhaps teen minutes Shelter was obtained in a neighboring tent of an Indian who seeks to maintain himself by dealing in curiosities and a few other items that a tourist is to boy After the rain subsided and the wind had lashed the lakes into fury and the white caps danced by the million old Sol ed his a halo of sunshine circled around and beyond the rock which cast a dark green shadow on the dashing waves below There was thus presented a most beautiful dashing waves rode by white caps on every hand rushing and tumbling and lashing themselves into fury the beau- halo of sunshine between the rocks and the waves the dark green of the shadow of the rock with a streak of sunlight peering through the arch and the great freak of nature the arch and the cliffc surmounted with pines and cedars and creeping vines are disposed can go back into Father Marquette and La Salle limes and read up and learn what they can about the death of Marquette Fort Holmes the British landing the battle of 1814 and attending circumstances and incidents To chronicle here would be too much in the nature of labor and come what may labor such as this is not to be per formed by this mortal just now A visit to Mackinack though is not complete without a trip up the that is the aesthetic way of putting it but the commonplace way is to say a trip up the St Marys River to Sault Ste Marie pronounced Soo Saint Maree The river is crooked and rapid full of rocks and difficult to navigate but it is run by trusty pilots and is not attended with danger It abounds in beautiful islands that are invariably perfectly circular in shape and covered with a foliage that is ular aud symmetrical as though clipped with a lawn mower The foliage is pine and cedar and at this season of the year present a most enchanting appearance Sault Ste Marie is located at the St Marys rapids around which are the Government canal and locks by which vessels pass from Lake Superior into Lake Huron Ths traffic on these lakes is wonderful Captain Skelton in his history of the locks and canal are now engaged in the commerce of the lakes nearly American vessels They represent an investment of capital Some of these vessels are of capacity to carry at a single trip the grain that would load five freight traios of thirty cars each with over 600 bushels per car The entire wheat crop of a acre Dakota wheat tarm went through the canal on one ol these great carriers Bui to appreciate this statement one must witness the traffic passing through these locks in one day In the day spent at the Soo the lock taking in three and four vessels ai a Called to order at A M by de- exercises conducted by Prof Simkins

this is said to be a regular thing Sault Ste Marie is a village and great preparations are being made for a prospective boom A water power canal through the town is being constructed and it is within
