He it aboard Rante rials for a vessel that he a tended to build on the Illinois River o explore and navigate the Bliss Iseppi. Vith sails and Tow line he worked his Essyl up past the rapids to the Lake and then on the seventh Day of Angus g79, himself master a Salt water Pilot and carpenters and three cat Liucy priests thirty six in All they Sang e drum weighed Anchor and spread Weir canvass to a favouring Breeze and n the eleventh entered the Detroit River. Here or. Par Kraan gives a glowing description of the River the praises Groves and forests and the Verity and Sibun stance of game from which their tables were bountifully applied evidently taken from i Lennens journal who said who vill one Day have the happiness to posess this Fertile Strait will be very nuclei obliged to those who have shown Hern the and if he could look tick and see it a. It is now he might veil think that they should thank kind Ortune that located them there. On Ake Huron they encountered a fearful Gale that threatened to hem. They All commended themselves to heaven except the Pilot who Hose Ruthir to spend his breath in ursing his commander for bringing Lim there to drown in fresh water. St. Anthony of Padua was promised a Chapel to be built in his Honor if he would save them from their peril and Lien and there he was declared the i Patron of their eni Caprise. The Saint heard and answered their prayers so says the record the wind tilled and they sped safely on their Vay and anchored the Griffin behind St. Ignace it Mackinaw. Before her Rose the House and Chapel of the Jesus its enclosed with Palisades on the right the Huron Village with its bark j Cabins and its Fence of tall pickets on the left the Square compact houses of the French traders and not far off the i clustered wigwams of the Ottawa Vil Lage. Here was n Centre of the Jesi Uit missions and a Centre of j Trade and Here under the Shadow of the Cross was much Sharp practice in the service of mammon. The adventurers landed in state and marched under arms to the bark Chapel of the Ottawa Village where they heard mass. Of r Days with rent legs fury and nothing More to As Ever known of the Griffin or her Crew. On the same Day la Salle with fourteen men in four deeply Linden with tools and merchandise started for Illinois following the Wisconsin Shore. This journey was attended with hardships and dangers t Ron toil from storms and frequent lugs not As n religious duty but necessity. After forty four of constant fatigue and exposure okie first Day of november they landed ii St. Josephs. Hero he expected to meet him with Twenty Mea from Mackinaw to follow the Mlp Higan Side of the Lake. Tonty did not arrive till the twentieth. la Salle with his men built a fort which he called the of having previously Given the a Lver the same mime. Hope for the Griffin still lingered in his and with anxious Eye he often scanned the dreary waste of Waters hut All in vain. He subsequently Hoard reports that aroused his suspicions of foul play but there can be but Little doubt that she foundered on Lake Huron and that All on Board found a watery grave. Winter was setting in and there was no time to lose. On the third of december he pursued his journey up the St. Josephs with eight canoes and thirty three men. Near the head Waters of that River was a Portage of Flye Miles to the sources of the Kankakee whence with canoes and baggage on their shoulders they wended their Way and Down the Kankakee to the Illinois whore the Little town of Utica is now there was then an Indian town where six or eight thousand congregated and lived except in the Hunting season when it was entirely deserted. Such was its condition when Las Ille with his fam Ishing men called there for supplies. On searching they found Corn safely stored which they appropriated but soon after made full restitution. He followed Down the River through the Heorhi Lake to the site of the town of Peoria and there Andy a stand and built the Hull of a vessel of forty tons Burden. Here be found employment for All the tact and Talent of his Active and Fertile brain to keep his men from desertion and to allay the jealousies of the indians and to guard against their Wiles and treachery. But where were the Anchor and Cable the sails and rigging for the vessel on the stocks. They were lost with the Griffin. On the second Day of March la Salle with his Mohegan Hunter and four frenchmen started for fort front canc Kingston Canada to procure and transport those heavy articles by canoes up and Down Rivers across lakes and Over portages to Peoria Illinois. In next i will follow him and pick up notes of Iii travels. U Don t know no. A of alarm. Lit Salu Knelt before tie Altai in a Mantle of Scarlet Loro ered with Gold.

La Sulle was a Good Catholic but Mutual jealousies existed Between him and the jesuits. His great mania was discovery and exploration More than wealth. All such Eute prizes require funds and he had already drawn heavily on his friends in France and had become somewhat involved in his operations at a Frontenac and something in the line of fur Trade was necessary for the accomplishment of his ambitious schemes. In the fall of seventy eight he had sent fifteen men to the upper lakes to Trade and collect furs for him through the Winter and then go to Illinois to prepare for his intended operations there. When he got to Mackinaw he found that some of his men had squandered the goods and had nothing to show for them others had traded on their own account. These he nabbed with their furs while some had remained faithful and collected a Good Stock for him. With these he freighted the Griffin bound for Niagara for the Benefit of his creditors in charge of the Pilot who was to return to the St. Josephs without delay. Left Mackinaw the eighteenth of september that night the line Gale set in and raged sister Julia was very courageous. In our youth the country was Wilder than now but it might be Maicl of her that she was not brought up in the Woods to be scared by an owl. She would travel the most a frequented paths timidity. There was nothing masculine however in Julia s appearance she was simply a Sweet joyous child with an absence of fear in her character in l a consequent clearness of perception in All cases of supposed or actual re augur. When 1 was 15. And Julia 18, t Uliet hired a labourer named Hans Schmidt a hessian who had been in the British service Anil who at the close of the War had deserted from his regiment. He was a powerful Man with a heavy in brute countenance and both Julia and myself were struck at the very first with an intuitive dream of him. The feeling in Julia hardly took the j diameter of fear but was one rather of tie most intense loathing. One evening she read of a horrible murder that thrilled our blood and upon turning her eyes the paper they encountered those of Hans Schmidt. There was something terrible in that glance and from that moment she resolved that the villain Sho Al be turned away. As her wishes and opinions were always of much weight with father he took her advice and gave Hans his discharge. Soon after this Julia and i were left alone in the House both father and Mother being absent upon a visit until the following Day and we happened to be without a servant at the time for we kept More than one. At night we went up to bed and had partly disrobed when Julia turned hastily to the window. I she Suid the evening a so Ploit Sani hint it is u pity to remain indoors. .1 Don t Joel a bit sleepy let s go Down on Thelan. We descended the stairs. How Little i imagined what was in Julia s heart Harry Irving came up just As we reached the Lawn. He was Only casually passing the House. Julia engaged him in conversation and he joined us. sister was More than usually Lively. Arc Tom and Edgar am. Will t she asked. Replied Harry Are Over Uncle s. They will coming Back soon. The three Yon a men soon appeared upon the Road Mill to Surprise Julia arose and called us outside the door Mary you need not to nervous. She said. Quiet and do not speak above your breath. There is a Man under orig bed there there and she clasped her hand Over Mouth Man under our bed and the Young going to secure him they All provided themselves wit heavy Sticks and then guided by Julie ascended the stairs. As to myself i cold not follow them but remained trembling and leaned up on the Doorstep. Never did i experience a greater sense of Relief thai when the sailing party descended looking partly ashamed having found nothing to justify their sudden Arma men l. Julia was in an agony of mortification und wept piteously for although but half convinced that her apprehensions had been groundless the Ide that she who had never till now feared anything had placed herself so ludicrously in the eyes of those men a insupportable. The mail she said must have Takei the alarm and fled out the Back door for she could not have been so Decel de. Our pity of her Montit cation than fro i any n the reality of the night intruder offered to remain in the Vicinity till morning but she would not list ii to heir proposition and ten y took Tohir part nip. I was sorry to see ten pro and watch d their forms till Wen out of ight for the affair of Hud most frightened into by Stark a Julia however at once rushed to the Imber and flinging herself on the continued bitterly weeping she had exhibited herself in a character Shieh she despised and her Man uner the bed would be the talk of the Leigh boyhood. I followed her but left hero us could sleep. The clock on the mantel piece struck eleven and then tick t went on for the next hour. Julia at a nth ceased weeping Ami Lay in nought Only an occasional sigh betraying her wakefulness. Again the clock struck but it had lot reached the final stroke when Julia eating out of bed Flung herself upon n immense Chest at the further end of he room. Of she cried Quick in Luck he is Here i cannot hold tie id lie will get there was indeed some living Thi onside the Clist for in Julia s Veight the lid was lifted and then As he instinct of self preservation overcame terror i sprang Quick v to ice assistance. Whom or what had caught i did of know. Imagine yourself holding Down the lid of a showman s Box nth a Boa constructor writhing breath or keeping a Cage top in its lace by your own weight alone with Hyena struggling to tear his Way out and devour you. But to were not Long in suspense. Ion id execration half germans half English chilled our very hearts and be knew that there in the Midnight Only the lid of an old Chest was be week ourselves and Hans scan nit at times it started up and once or vice Iii lingers were caught in the pening. Then finding our combined too much for his strength it would become evident that he was Encavo ring to Force out an end of the Hest. But he could not work to an advantage. Cramped within such limits is giant Power of muscle was not wholly available he could neither ick nor strike with the full Force and ence his chief Hope rested upon his ability to lift us up lid and All. Even then in the Buso Lutto terror Liat might have been supposed to posess her queer feeling of exultation Prang up in Julta s heart. Was right she cried. They won t take to a fool now will Hoy i Shan t be ashamed to see Hnry poor Julia under the circumstances he idea was perfectly ludicrous but Anre will everywhere assert itself net Julia i Atud a Coward. Thump Lump thump lid and Side and and alternately Felt the cramped powerful blows. Then came the lift tie Teady straining lift and Julia cheers when the cover Shook and Rose and trembled. Can t get out Mary we Are Safe Only just keep your full weight on the a and Don t be nervous either it is most morning. She new it was not one o clock. But one o clock came. How i wish it was live and two o clock came and three and four and we hoped. That lir prisoner had yielded to his Fate High must now appear to him inv table. A Small App erasure at end of the Hest where there was a fracture in the Vood supplied him with air and hence pc could not Hope that he would a come weak through suffocation. He Kras evidently resting from the very necessity of the Case for his exertions and been prodigious. There was a aint Streak of Daylight in the sky and there upon the morning we sat and vat Cliel for the gleam to broaden. Suddenly there was a tremendous struggle beneath us in the Ruffian had concentrated All his energies in n final Voit. Army end of inc Chest thu re Vns a crush Ami Lulli Nan s Fuet protruded through the apr erasure that they had forced in the Ioard. So horrible now appeared the position that i uttered a scream such is i did not think i Ever at at anytime Lould have had the Power to imitate. To get off the lid in order to defeat he movement through the Chest end would have instantly been our destruction therefore still bearing our weight on the Chest to caught at the a rejecting feet. In doing this however we Jur tally lost our balance and a sudden Jrae Fng up of the muscular below so forced open the lid that the head arms and shoulders of Hans Schnidt Iverc thrust Forth and with a fearful clutch he seized Julia by the Throat. Just then a heavy crash was heard at he door below the foot tramps Spring no towards us As if some person were tearing no the Stair Case with the full conviction that this was an hour of iced. The dim Daybreak hardly revealed his identify but i had a f int perception that Young Harry Irving lad come to us in our hour of peril. Some Lime during the morning i found myself in bed with Julia and several of the neighbors standing Abtil . Julia clasped in her arms and cried Are Safe Mary i Harry Irving was near the House All night. He returned after seeming to go Home. The least scream he would have heard As he had last heard yours but 1 am glad you did not scream before for now we have had an experience and know what we can do. Hans Schmidt had Pecuh d upon the Chest As a safer hiding place than that in which Julia had first discovered him. Upon the very morning on which Harry Irving stunned Anil secured the Ruffian in our room the officers of Justice were seeking for the old hessian scoundrel Asa supposed murderer and he was convinced and Hung. Julia became the wife of Harry Irving and a most excellent she was. Magnanimous and uti revengeful she was perhaps the Only person who Felt no gratification at the Fate of old Hans Schmidt but rather a pity for ignorance which steeped him in crime. Ton and every lecture morning at the sound of the College Bell i mounted the Well worn Steps which led to the lecture Hall and was promptly seated at least live minutes Coutore the lecturer of tin Day made his appearance i took Ante breakfast walks in those Days and one. Beautiful morning i was on a Long stroll in what mrs. Partington called the of the town. In one of the Large truck gardens belonging to a Fine Brick mansion i observed a Man apparently beyond the Middle age poor in appearance physically As Well us gathering roots and herbs doubtless i thought for a Matutina meal. Poor old Man 1 homeless perhaps certainly trespassing in some och h in foraging among the radish and lettuce Beds for a miserable breakfast. Wonder if you have any bread to make up your Graham-1 the meal and must you push Down that miserable stuff As these thoughts of pity and sympathy ran through mind the old Man approached near enough for to note Hla appearance move particularly. His old i Tiaw hat is Wellborn Alpaca coat his common brow Linen browsers and his Low shoes All put together would be dear i thought at live dollars for the Jot. I put hand into pocket with the intention of bestowing upon him enough to get him a loaf of bread at least. As he came nearer and nearer i saw something in his face which forbade to to Oiler tiie something which said i would Hurt his feel Wiigs that his poverty was too sacred to be noticed by a stranger. So i turned away without a word resumed homeward walk and in due Lime sat Clown to own breakfast with Many thoughts about the poor old Man and his breakfast. breakfast Over i wended Way to the and sauntered under the line old elms which Shade Nassau Hall until the Bell rank for lecture in a few minutes i was in appointed dial Rin lecture Hall beside Friend s.

It was while Nassau Hall was in session and Friend our worthy District attorney was andergoino1 his of sprouts to fit himself for the various places he has since so ably and honorable tilled.

The car was crowded and eligible seats were not easily obtainable. About the Middle of the car a sedate traveler occupied a sea to himself. Thither the irrepressible lady pressed her Way. The sedate traveler arose and with much Courtesy invited her to take seat next to the window and when she was seated he calmly ensconced himself upon the vacant half of the seat. By this time the Young Man whore she was escorting came up. He pm acc is hand on the Back of the seat looked appealingly on the face of his Protu Witri is and looked timidly around the car. Lie was evidently embarrassed and did not know what to do with himself. The Sharp nosed Brunette eyed the sedate traveler by her Side with Sharpness that almost amounted to Malignity. But the traveler Seei Nec unconscious of the scrutiny to which he was subjected and looked away Over the Fields through an open window.
