The ice was not strong enough to bear his weight walking. Strapping the mail pouch upon his back and lying flat upon his face, he started creeping to Middle Bass, over a mile away. A large dog seeing him in that position started out ou the ice to him, but broke through and was nearly drowned before parties on shore could rescue hiui. Captain. Hitchcock crept the entire distance across the channel and the Ice crushing under and around him. At another time he was crossing channel iu a boat. A heavy fog came down and he had to resort to his compass to keep his bearings. Iron in the boat caused the compass to vaiy aud he was carried almost past the ex- treme eastern end of the island, over two miles out of his course. Another time, when the mail was carried from Port Clinton, Mr. Hitchcock was in a sleigh. He came to a crack in the ice several yards wide. He had two or three passengers and several hundred pounds of freight. He chopped out a big cake o> the ice upon which the sled was standing, and his horse, sled, passen- gers and freight ere ferried across the crack. The two winters previous to this the captain's two sons, Lyndon and Ernest carried the mail aud their experiences were equally as thrilling as those of their father aud grandfather before them. One time the boys were com ing from Middle Bass, they had one passen- ger, Miss Blanche she will never forget that trip. The ice was breaking up and running down the lake. They couldn't row it, but must cross just the same. They got into their ness (made of ropes aud straps with which to haul their boat) and started for Put-iu-Bay, a good, long mile. .Tumping from cake to cake of ice, many times the cakes not as large as au ordi- nary wash-tub, often sinking to their middle in the icy water, and yet not. daring to stop, their boat thumping on the ice behind breathless crowd standing on the docks on both islands watching that perilous wheu they reached the shore on this side both boys were laughing as if il was rare sport. At another was a terrible day, cold and they ar- rived their clothes were frozen to them and they had to be helped out of their boat aud to a fire and be "thawed out" before they could get their clothing off looked like two pillars of ice when they arrived. At another time they were caught iu the running ice in the Ottawa channel, aud work as hard as they may they could not push their way through and were carried down tho lake. Their father was watch- ing them with a ghiss from the shore. He sent a message to Kelleys Island to watch tor them. They, however, man- aged to push through and make the shore down near the east end. On New Year's day. 1SJI7, they had another vivid experience. They had two passengers, Misses Mary Lib and Myrtle Vromau. Shortly after they left Catawba a dense fog came it was impossible to see a rod ahead of the boat. Here the com- pass misled them again.
