half speed when it ran into a bank of
fog. The Iroquois reef projects out
of the lake abouit three feet. The
reef's end is not more than thirty
feet from the regular cousrse of boats
on the shore rocks. In the haze and
snow the Baston went straight into
this pile of rocks. I was standing
well forward and felt the first lift of
the boat's nose as it began to climb
The wiheel stopped the instant the
bell was sounded and then began
madly reversing, but the momentum
of the boat loaded with heavy cargo
was enougli to make it crawl out of
water and partly across the reef
Then it stopped, after falling on its

gers and crew, and lanterns were let

of us, we knew we were high and

Finally they came to a precipice. Be

plight of the Mohegans. They were
ready to give up and submit to the
cruel fate that was pursuing them.
Then a wise man of the tribe spoke.
