TEI:ItLLE t-' FPERING NfEAR STORM I.AKE-ONI: MANi
FRO/EN TO IDEATH AND. ANOTHER BADLY FiOZ EN.
From Ithe Fort Dodge Northwest. Nov 2,.
Three trappers from Illinois passed through
here about a month ago, on their way %West to
begin the winter ?campsaign against the tink and
otter. They were yapping In Buena Vista county
and surrounding country. On Monday. the 16th,
two of thea started from the Maple river to go
acroee the prairie to Storm Lake. Our readers
will all remember the severe snow storm that
came on so suddenly during that day. The wind
blew a terrific gale from the northwest. The
snow come driving down in blinding fury, making
it a fearful day for the traveler on the great un
settled prairies. The two trappers pushed on
through the blinding storm all day,'and when night
came no friendly shelter was in sight. The orm
had continued to increase, the night was dark, the
air filled with the driving snow, the road utterly
hidden from sight. It was a cheerlebs prospect
before them-to continue on, groping their way
through the long hours of night, lost and without
hope of finding a friendly shelter, or lying down
in the snow at the rink ot free/zig, to wait for
After wandering around for a time, they con
cluded to sto; anrd dig a hoie in a lare snow
drift, which would afford a partial shelter from
the fury of the storm uantil morning. When d ty
light appeared they crawled out and found them
selves badly frozen. One of them, Coarles lat
Icr, insisted upon going on toward the lake, while
the other as strongly insisted upon trying to ind
the nearst house. They finaly separated--But
ler and his dog going in the direction of Ntorm
Lake while the other wandered around until he
found a house. Before reaching it he became
nearly deranged from his smulerings. Haring
pulled ef his bcotbs to rub his feet, he was un
able to get them on again, and was compelled to
walk several miles barefoot in the snow. \ hen
he reached the house his feet were badly frozer,
manlea from tbr .tsbbw 0 thetar Itr b prairtO
graes, bleeding and useless.
On Friday night Butler's dg came into Sac
C.ty, and made such demonstrationsa that some of
the citizens who knew him, seeing him so lank
and apparently nearly starved, became alarmed
for the safety of his master. Barly the next morn
ing a party of men started out, and following the
dog who ran on before them for about twelve
nlies, toward Storm Lake, they at lat came upon
the body of the unfortunate trapper lying stark
and rigid in the snow.
The dog had evidently staid with his ma3ter
from Tneeday mnight until Friday, when almost
famshed with hunger, be sought the settlements.
We learn that ButLer leaves a wife in Iliiois to
mourn his sad fate.

The salutatory by Master Thomas Raymond was
gracefully rendered. More cannot be said, as the
theme is barren of novelty and each salutatory
most Inevitably resemble those that have gone
beiore and partake more or less of the mannerism
alluded to by Master Lionel Adams in his
sptigbtly essay on fashiou. The Latin oration by
Master Luieon F. 8alomon evinced a knowledge
of that ancient tongue on the Dart of that young
gentleman, that would be creditable to a college
graduate. This reporter would lihke to msay some
thing concerning the original poem by Muter
Even Morgan, but unfortunately the disconnected
and fugitive words that succeeded in teaching his
ear gaverhim no idea of its tenor or worth. The
public must not, however, imagine that this was
the fault of Masuter Morgan. That young gentle
man spoke as loud as any of the others;
but they spoke prose, and every one is
aware that it is not necessary to hear
every word in that ase in order to understand.
Poetry, however, being the best words in the best t
places, requires that every syllable be heard, or
the meaning is a blank. The distant and extremely
back seat engaged (!) by this reporter, was the
diabolical cause. The original declamation in
French by Master John Castellanos, suffered the
same fate, so far as regards the writer, as Master
Morgan' poem-it was lost in space. Enough of
Masuter William Hale' essay on mirth reached the
reporter's corner (northwest uttermost) to en
able him to decide that it was tolerably good. Al
therugh the thele was mrl, the essay was by no
means mirthful, consisting of rather grave advice
(prettily writtea it must he admitted) as to the
proper times, places and eircumstances for yield.
iog to mirthful propeltddies. Master Valentine
Fontaine, who followed with the declamation on
genius, acquitted himself admirably. Be evidently
elt an interest in his theme. for his ideas were
well chosen, his diction spirited, and his delivery
foil of life. The valedictory by Master Wnm Ren.
shaw, was feelingly spoken. Ihe emotions that
prod pt the graduate to take one " ling'ring,
last f- nd loik behind," were eloquently portrayed
by tbhis talented young gentleman. The exercises
w e diversified by musteal divertlr mente from

dark to daylight: that infest the State House, the
court lobties and the chicken roosts-but not
for you, little Mr. Decker. You have an honest,
handsome, ruddy face; your frank and open eye
shows your integrity. No, sr.
