loaded lelt there to go through the rapids of tha St Lawrence All the boats were packed with Grand Army men and their fami lies The Bohemian tho largest of iBe boats was the last She had between 600 and 700 passengers aboard The long Sault rapid was passed safely and the ex cursion itts began to congratulate them selves that the discomforts of the trip hafl ended The entire day was very pleaf anlly spent albeit that the boat was fear fully overcrowded About 7 oclookgreat thunder clouds began to gather in the west and the sky to darken The vritwl freshened considerably too and a big storm was predicted Commencement of the Tronlle There was yet one series of rapids togo through the Cretan as dangerous as any on the river and the captain of the Bo hemian thought he could reach there be fore daLkness set in The upper deck for ward of the boat was packed with people watching the first plunge of the steamer when a brilliant flash of lightning run across the bow Then thuader pealed and rain beqnn to nil in sheets The people made a rush for the cabin and shelter and the srenmer entered the rap ids She rolled fenrfuily and the people surged from side to side Suddenly the sound of cracking timbers was heard and women shrieked and fainted A WUU rnnli Ilrcuka Out Then there were heard several hoarse commands from the pilot house to the crew to clear the tiller chains The upper deck beams had cracked and the floor in sinking had jammed the tiller chains leading from tho pilot house nft aud the stoamer in the midst of the broiling rapids was entirely beyond control it became known that the boat was un manageable close to the awful rocks an indescribable panic ensued rushed here and there those thathadn fainted and worse than all the crew waiters on board made a rush for the pile of life preservers in the center of the cabin and on the after deck and bejan strapping them ou The Stenmcr Strikes a Rock The war veterans aboard kept their wits about thorn aud fought the cowards away from the lifepreservers while asquickly as possible they strapped as many as they could find on the women and children There were not enough to half go round The boat in the meantime had turned en tirely around and was now going down the rapids first Suddenly there was a terrible jar nnd everybodys heart stood still The steamer had struck a rock and from the peculiar grating sound that fol lowed the shock she apparently slid off The captain yelled that there was no clan ger and everybody expected the next min ute to be their last Three More Safety The steamer slowly began to turn round again and then came another shock followed by another each of them heavier than the first Again the captain shouted Keep cool there is no danger and the passengers anxiously peered through the pouring raiu over the foiyn crested rapids vainly trying to aee the shore Another shock came The fourth and the steamer gave a mighty heave and plunge for all the world as if she was go ing down head first and then ilowly turned her head to the rapids The shook was another rock she had touched and the plunge was the last jump through the rapids out into the open clear waters Everything JLovely Again The captain yelled We are all right now aud a sigh of relief went up that almost put to shame the tempest that tras howling over the river The craw had got over their panic and were working hard clearing the tiller chains during the most critical time arid by the time they cleared the rapids the steamer was under control again her head was turned short ward and within twenty minutes the party were disembarking in the Bean harnais canal pier An examination of the steamer showed that she was making very little water She Was Built That The vessels bottom was especially built for just such an emergency The nppet deck which started the panic had lunk two feet and it is a miracle that it didnt fall entirely If it had there would have been a horrible tale to tell The passing through the rapids with no worse result than it was was a miracle The 600 or more people did not reach Montreal un til early yesterday morning the most dis gusted party that ever struck Montreal So

much attached to it During the day the cow brovrsed apon the spacious lawn at the Harrison resideuoo and at night was stalled and bedded with as much care as were the family horses To find the animal a good home during his four absence was one of tha cares that occupied the president Iwhile arranging for his departure to Washing ton City but the matter was finally set tled by placing the animal iu

were promptly paid and 4he animal returned to the pos session of its temporary owner With the discovery thnt Harrisons cow was in the pound came alsb the discovery that Con sul General News cow had
