Through ono of these 'remarkable rifts the the Nlpigon basin found their way from "Orient Biy to. Lake Helen.

When ihe Ice melted tho river found .a new nnd" more circuitous course through a parallel rift several miles i farther west. As a matter ol fact it probably found two for a time, for from ChfeTs Bay there is oniy A'nuull portage with an almost negligible sum- mit into anolher Black Stur- geon, which runs Into Lake Superior several miles farther west. The peculiar outlines aliore. alluded ito are tboso of flat-topped hiiis with vertical faces several hundred feet high, end lower slope oi broken roct fallen from the precipices.
