The Eccentric Missouri River.
The eccentric and variable Missouri
river has "a personal friend" In George
Fitch, who declares iu the American
Magazine that the stream is navigable
enough If only the steamboats would
conform to its peculiarities. Mr. Fitch's
humor is refreshing.
"The Missouri steamboat," says Mr.
Fitch, "should be shallow, lithe, deep
chested and exceedingly strong la th-j
"It should be hinged in the middl
and should be fitted with a suction
dredge, so that when It cannot climb
over a sandbar It can assimilate It.
The Missouri river steamboat should
be able to make use of a channel, but
should not have to depend upon It.
"A steamer that cannot on occasion
climb a steep clay bank, go across a
cornfield and corner a river that is
trying to get away has little excuse
for tryinjj to navigate the Missouri."
