A MYSTERIOUS ISLAND
Periodically Vanishes from Sight Beneath

Dante Nature must have been In a
curious mood when she added to the re?
markable and incomprehensibly mys
tcries of 'the universe an island In Dike
Orion, Michigan, to which attention of
the scientific world is now for the first
time- called. It Is literally a 'sinking
Island, periodically -vanish lug from
sight beneath the waters of the lake,
and again rising high and dry. t > the
astonishment of the residents along the
shore und the complete In wllderment Of
those Who profess to have solved the
riddles or most natural phenomena.
The Island if situated far from the
beaten track of town life, and so rar bus
e.-eaped tiie publicity that so remarka?
ble a freak would have attracted had
the busy brains of scientific men boon
concent ratted upon Its peculiar man her
or thrusting Iis body out <>' the water
and becoming a bold landmark III -the
neighborhood, and again sinking shyly
out of sight ami hiding its ihodesl head
SOinewhCTO In the recesses of the lake.
It has dome lo pass at tost, however,
that a scientific man has pitched his
leirt, or rather his cottage.'on the bor?
ders of Lake Orion, in the vicinity of
tiie mysterious Island, and through this
circumstance the valuable scientific puts
zle is ;tt last made public to whet the
curiosity of clever men. and perhaps.
resultsln a soluii n of a mvsterv ami
the wresting from Dame Nature of an?
other of her closely guarded secrets.
The scientist to whom 'the world Is
Indebted for making public the existence
of the sinking island is C. Henri l.r >n
ar.l. A. M., M. D.. a well known nuthor
' f Detroit. Mr. Leonard has watch",!
foe strange antics of tho island with
growing interest, and has, 'besides mak?
ing systematic notes of its habits, form?
ed a theory regarding the causes of ihe
appearance and disappearance ef so in- j
tt resting a landmark. 1'hc result of bis
studies he gives to the readers of the
Chicago Record as follows:
"Plie cottagers have named a strange
spot in this vicinity the 'fronting Island.'
but this is some-thing "f a misnomer, as
it is really a sinking and a rising Island.
During several months of the year !:
lies submerged In about twenty feet or
more of water. Ilten for the balance of
the year II put of wate-, and picnics
can bo held upon I: if so desired. It Is
used as a hunting place, when out of the
water by some of the boys or tho sum- j
mer resident families, waterfowl hi Ing
s'lt-'t from Its Kiirraee. Members of my
family have' rowed over the sp it when
the island has chosi n to sink out of
sight, and have endeavored to reach its
submerged surface with a 7-foot oar,
bill could not do so. T-.v > months later
it lias b en but --it' the water again.
"The 'Island' : ?proximales an hero in
extent. It I? of course very wot for the
first week or eo after 'arising' from the
lake's depth, but as -the seas*-n wears
along 11 becomes dryer, and, as before
Mated, can be used for picnic purposes
l would be afraid of Its stability under
a large load, though I have been told
by on- or tl.Id residents, that one |
season the pople tried to hold It down
by pouring on its sunken surface four?
teen wagon loads of lat'ge stones rowing
them over the lake's surface toihe place
where the Island was known t" He sub?
merged: but like Ramiuo's ghost tin
Island wlJtll I hot down; i: mnkes Its
entrre Into irlr every year just, the same.
In the centre of the island is a halt
dozen or more large stumps (trowing, n
clump ( t three being In the ci ntre of the j
mass, il think these sturpps ate respon?
sible fr.r the phenomena attending the
a p. :iu 11 rising and shaking. That is, 1
am of the opinion Ihn.t a collection of
these originally formed the nucleus for
the growth of ".his strnnge freak oiriong
tin- Islands t r our fr< sh water lakes.
"The flora of the lake Is something I
marvelous in richness und variety.
These stumps have drifted out tin the j
centre of this portion of the lake, and
taken with them some or the strands of
the long stake-like plants that grow. I
there t/i the length > f nearly ten feet,
with the lily fronds, mosses, ami various
others of the ncmiatlc plant::. Titos-.
floating growths have formed there,
with the earth attached -to the stump
roots, an island garden all to themselves
j They prow luxuriantly, and the under
brush clear d away from the shore* nnd
other Islands thereabouts gradually
drifted in to them, and .so Increased

or the brush and i f Iho stumps di payed
the mass became waterlogged, and the
whole gradually sunk beneath the sur?
face <?r the lakte.
"Rut how comes It to rise ngnln, as
II does each succeeding year.? This Is
the r- Int that has puzzzled wiser h< ads
than mino, but I have ;v the" ry for It.
which seems t.. answer all th ? require?
ments. As tii- ll i\i ripens during the

"I seems to change Its position but
very little, the wind? blowing ncross the
surface having little or no effect upon
It in this respect. This leads me to
think it -Is anchored by the long-rooted
ami tenlacicd weeds that luxuriate so
a'bout and upon the unstable mass.
"Another thing or riotb Is that with
all tills rich water?vegetation, of Orion
L,alte there Is no unheaUhlnes's arising
from it. This 1s another peculiar thing
to 1110*, as a physician. My family have
summered on the lake's borders for some
nine years, nnd there is yd to come to
my knowledge a case of malaria arising
within tho neighborhood of the lake In
all that time. This I attribute to the
fact 'that the large amount of Iron pro
son4! In all the water thereabouts?lake
water as well as that fiom our wells?
Seems t'J prevent the development of
the microbe, or bacteria, that gives ue
the Form of Eyinotlc disease that tho pro?
fession has denominated 'malaria.' This
absence of malaria 13 also 'testified to
by the local physician there, who has
been a resident for 0>mc fifteen years.
Bp, altogether. Orion Lake, with its an?
nual rising and sinking Island, nnd Its
rich end abundant water-Hora. and its
al>seneo of malaria from Its borders,
has many paints of scientific interest
connected with Its history.

as within Its boundaries. Among these
Is Ovlon Lake. Originally, what now
const! tutcs-the main body of wa ter was
throe lakes lying diso to each other.
The embankment of -the Bay Oily rail?
road, running across nno end of one of
t'.i se lakes, raised tho surface of the
water until Iho Intervening land was
overflowed, and now one very irregular
but picturesque body of water occcuples
the place of th? original three. It Is
<lti!'te full of islands of vari'ius sizes,
one being about forty acres In extent.,
on which a largo club -house stands, used
by tho summer visitors to the health
