Oh, what joy and thanksgiving possessed them,

Four miles from the shore they had drifted
when their rescuers reached them atlast.
With only one pair of oars, with five in the
frail little boat,
They labored with grim desperation, they
baled her and kept her afloat.
With the lantern's dim light as a beacon, they
safely reached the shore:
But who can tell of the dangers that threat

Full many a time and often, in their dreams do
they live again.

Contribution From a Local Poet
The following poem was writter by
Mrs. M. R. Fuller, sister of F. C. Foltz.
Mrs. Fuller lives at Bennetville, five
miles north of Mille Lacs lake and was
present at the pocnic the day of the
The waters of old Mille Lacs lay smiling in
Th breath of summer was in the air. old
Winter's race was run
The hill tops round about her were clothed
in living green.
And flowers of every color grew wild in the
A murmur sounded softly from the breaking
of the waves.
And as softly rose the echo, as the distant
shore she laved.
Ah, fair are those inland waters when the
breeze is soft and low,
But beware her treacherous billows when
storm winds rise-and blow.
On a fair and bright June morning, while yet
the day was younj?.
Those woodland vales resounded with music
and with song.
Three Sabbath schools near the lakeside, to
brighten the children's way.
Had asreed to meet together and celebrate
Long and gladly they labored, with story,
music and song.
To honor the name of the Master, who alone
can shield them from harm.
Part of the people had gathered near the
church which stood by the way,
So quickly mounting the wagons they quickly
But one youth said to his mother, as his
comrades rode away,
"Mother, I'll take the sailboat, for the breeze
is fine today."
Then along came another laddie, keen for a
ride that day,
So the lad. the youth and his father gallantly
They rode on the breast of the waters till
they came to a hamlet small,
And there when they beached their vessel,
they found their comrades all.
When they left their homes that morning, the
weather was bright and fair,
But before they left the village a storm was
in the air.
The rain poured down unceasing, the thunder
But the village folk were kindly and all were
sheltered and fed
The day was spoiled for the children, but they
smiled in spite of the rain,
And soon were speeding homeward, care free
and happy again.
Then one of the lads came quickly and asked
perm'ssion to co
With the boys who were out in the sailboat in
the harbor down below.
But his mother answered him gently, "My son,
you must come with me,
For the lake is rough and stormy and the boat
should carry but thre."
Ah! Well ior- the boys on the watei that the
lad was trained to obey,
For had the boat carried another, perhaps none
would have reached the bay,
For high rose the wind and higher, and the
waters foamed and raved,
Till the boys were gravely threatened with
death in the angry wave.
Ever, more carefully forward they guided the
frail htt'e craft,
But ever the storm grew wilder at theii ter
ror he grimly laughed.
At length they could steer no longer in the
face of the fearful drives.
And the boys were out in the water, battling
for their lives.
Calling wildly, as fiercely they struggle, they
cling to the tossing boat,
A moment plunged 'neath the wateis, on the
waves now in anguish they float.
Drifting-) rapidly drifting, each moment away
from the shore,
The sound of their voices mingling with the
storm's wild dash and roar
Ihe people who drove through the woodland
journeyed cheerily through the gloom:
Not once did they think of danger, or dream
of the boys' threatened doom.
But one, the youth's father, had lingered as
the party drove off from the shore.
When, alas, as he looked o'er the waters, the
sail could be seen no more
Ah, the terror that gripped his heartstrings
as he hastily sped away
To summon the help that was needed, to save
them he must not delay.
A mile to the westward he hastened to a neigh
bor who came at his call,
"My son and two friends are in danger, God
willing, we'll save them all!"
Then quickly launching a lowboat, they biave
ly started across,
Nor heeded the thought that their own lives
might be reckoned as part of the cost.
No sound to guide their brave efforts, no sail
gleamed out through the gloom,
But e\er they prayed the Great Ruler, "Oh,
grant ua, we pray thee, this boon
Then afar on the heaving billows, as then
strength to the oars they gave,
A dark object greeted their vision, rose and
fell on the crest of the wave
Electing the President.
Technically Messrs. Harding and
Coolidge wore not elected president
and vice president until the electors
who had boen chosen last November
met in their respective states and
went through the form of casting their
ballots. Practically the discharge of
th.it function was merely the cere
monious recording of the decision of
tho people rendered two months be
fore. It served also as a reminder of
the fact that a president of the United
States is really elected by virtue of an
unwritten law in contradiction to the
undoubted intent of the constitution.
It wrs, of course, a foregone con
clusion that all electors who had been
chosen on republican tickets would
designate Harding and Coolidge as
their choice. Yet they were under no
legal compulsion to do so, and the
makers of tho constitution did not i l
tend that they should be. The inten
tion was that there should be no nomi
nr tions made in advance, but that the
people should choose electors who,
quite free and unrestricted, should
conduct investigations into the fitness
of various men and the presidency,
should analyze the qualities adapted" to
the station, and then, acting in'circum
stahces. favorable to deliberation,
should vote according to their ow:i
judgment. It is of curious interest to
recall that this provision of the con
stitution was one of the very few
almost the only onethat escaped
severe censure and seemed to receive
practically universal consent. Yet it
is the one which from almost the very
first has by practically universal con
sent, been ignored and nullified! Can
it be that it was thus accepted be
cause of some prescience that it would
In the election and reflection of
Washington there was no occasion for
anything more than the letter and
spirit of the constitution. But in the
third presidential contest Hamilton
himself led the way in overriding the
intent of his own constitution by dic
tating in advance for whom the elec
tors should votes Thereafter for
years, until the end of the "Virginia
Dynasty," nominations were made by|
congressional caucusses, which the
electors, subsequently chosen by the
people, were regarded as morally,
though, of course, not legally, bound
to confirm. That was a most objee-
stitutional intent, and it is obvious'
he is than it would be to have him'
