this subject with a masterly argument

burden of the cross and death was

If our school system with its splendid

into as many branches as is the

for division is our theological quar

37TH YEAR FOR DIAMOND JO
ot Origin and Development
of the Lilne River
mere are perhaps many people n
this section who remember the ol
steamboat Envoy, which plied these
waters ni the summers of 1853 and
1S06, under command of Capt. N. C
Roe, a trim, swift boat which, how
ever, ran into debt to the amount of
$o0.(H0 durinjr the two seasons; and
ome there are who now recall the
adventures of the crew of that steam
er t.n the occasion of the memorable
Masonic excursion to Dubuque. It was
;t glorious summer's morning, and the
Envoy, crowded with pleasure-seekers
was about to cast off from the Lyons
levee and start on her trip up the
river, when an officer of the law
boaroed her and remorselessly tied
her up, affixing a strong cable to her
;in I to a post on the levee. Where
upon Capt. Kst a brooks, who was run
nmg ns mate on the boat, assumed
the responsibility. Playing out the
cable gradually, he let the boat drift
now n si ream, at I lie same time swing
ing her head about; and, under tie
mendous headway, the vessel reached
the "end of her rope." and careened
violently, nearly capsizing. The boat
momentum tore the post from, the
grounu. ami it. witn ine cable, was
hauled on deck. It was a foolish risk
of the lives of hundreds, but it was
successful, anil the big steamer clear-
c: r.ir imbiioiic.
At Dubuque the Envoy's troubles
continued. Officers with a license
boarded her. and with the object ol
making snr; of Ihe slippery skipper,
removed the piston heads from the
engine. Necessity is the mother of
invention, and the captain i f the En
voy was equal to the emergency. With
his carpenters he whittled out some
pision beads r stout oak. ana when
the hour for departure came he quiet
ly got up steam, and with a jingle of
bells and blowing of whistles the' e-rij-pled
craft sailed majestically away be
fore the eves of the' astounded officers
of the law.
I'he Envoy was a veritable pirate of
the river. It is said of her that she
has been known to land at a elo.en
river wood yards before she found one
whose proprietor was absent. Then all
hands would go to work with a will
until the Envoy's guards and holds
were loaded to their capacity. Occa
sionally the craft would forge her
way up stream at night in gallant
style, ablaze with lights; tlvcn, with
lights out and exhausts hushed, she
would wheel about and glide like a
phantom ship down the opposite side
of the- river, to be next heard of on
the Red' or the Ohio. Many are the
tales the old rivermen tell of the an
cient Envoy, which has long since
gone to the place where all good and
bad vessels go.

The' Diamond Jo company is enter
ing upon its .t tli season. In the year
lt7 the line was establishetl by lo-
s'ph Reynolds, of Winona, the seven
ste'amers which were owne'd by the
proprietor who was known by the
sobriquet of "Diamond Jo." plying
between Fulton e-ity and St. Paul,
stopping e,n all their trips at Clinton
and Fulton. In the year 1S77 the line
was extended south to Hurlington. and
a couple of years later to St. Louis,
the present terminus. Capt. Reynolds
was a believer in the ste-rn whe'eler, as
opposed to the prevailing sentiment of
rivermen of early days, who favored
the' side wheel boats. Reynolds ar
gued that the stern wheelers were
more profitable in view of the frc
epie'iie'y e)f the low water pe-riods. when
the side whe-el crafts had great diffi
culty in navigating the waters of the

characteristic of the steamers of'the

name. In lsi.s a river consolidation
resulted in the birth of the Keokuk
