correspondence Whtle at Old Mission
your correspondent accepted nu invita
tion to jM the Saint Aloan's school eu tu
ner camp on a flshiDg excursion of three
lays. There mere ia i he party the mas
ter.Mr. Notes, eight boys and myself.
We went by steamer to :k Rapids, sev
en miles acrots the bay, taking two boats
and tent and necessary provisions. At
Elk Rapids we secured a guide with
ttnother boat, and after a bard row of
l ight miles across Elk lake egainst head
tvind and high sea, we landed at Squac
f.teeck Point just at nightfall, tired, wet
f.nd hungry, pitched the tent, cooked
(upper, and took a swim and attempted
to sleep, with millions of mosquitots all
(bout us. Ahead mask partially pro
tected your corresponient, but the rest of
the party, including the guide, cave it up,
t30k to the boats and parsed tbe niff,ht as
test they could, on the water, getting out
t) fish at 4 o'clock with txcellent success,
bringing in plen'y of pickerel and bass
fir breakfast Durinp the day we rowed
s x miles over Round lake and up Torch
aad Rapid rivers for brook trout. Rapid
r.ver beimz probably the only place in tbe
world where one can tish for
brook trout from a boat.
Returning at dark. supper was
cooked and eaten with hearty relish, and
after a refreshing swim 10 weary people
were stretched on tbe ground under the
tent, wooing sleep. The mosquitoes did
not trouble us. and we keDt perfectly dry
even during tbe heavy rain out at 4
o'clock for fish of which there seemed to
be no limit and the perty took home as
trophies about 75 pounds of fine bass and
pickerel, having cooked probably as
many more. All were sotry to go home.
but the time was up as the bovs were
obliged to get back for regular study.
Lit Kapids is a place of 1.500 people, a
great resort for fishermen, and has a
1-ge flouring mill, lumber mills, wood
alcohol, and iron smelting works. The
firm running all these has an immense
store where every thing is sold that can
be called for, from fish hooks to laces.
the annual sales amounting to $300,000.
A chain of lakes extends miles. Wild
raspberries and huckleberries are found
by the acre in any quantity.
On Sunday at Old Mission we had di
vine service atd a sermon by Dr. Leffing
will under the trees near his cottage,
about 60 being present, including some
ch )ir boys from tbe parish in Ann Arbor.
At organ and full musical service made
the day seem very Sunday like.
On Friday, the 17th, we left Old Mis
sion at So'clock with fair wind, arriving
at Charlevoix at 1 o'clock. This place is
quite a summer resort for people from all
over the country. It has a harbor com
pletely land locked called Sound Lake
vety deep and capacious, and tbe town is
built around tbe lake; leading out of
Roand lake is Pine lake, very deep and
of .jreat extent. Just in the suburbs of
the town, on Pine lake, are the two re
sorts for summer visitors, known as the
Ch cago resort and the Cnarlevoix
resirt each having a fine hotel
and many cottages. Sail and
steamboats are pi Ting in all direc
tions, at all hours, and everything is g?
with life- We find manv old friends here.
and make mny nea ones, and the yacht
is visited and inspected by many people.
We are laid up for several days for some
necessary repairs, and in the meantime
are enjoying the pleasures oS the place
and the climate, though it is cool for the
Illinois season. Last night at 9 o'clock
the murcury indicated 54 degrees, and at
S tt is morning 57 degrees. Oreen peas
are in their prime; also roses and otber
Covers. Wild raspberries are everywhere
delicious, while fish and lake trout lust
from tbe nets, and eyervbody is pleasant
and glad to see you. Yesterday we at
tended and assisted in divine worship.
Bishop Gillespy.of Western Michigan hav
ing bis summer cottage on the Charlevoix
rescrt. I find one lady with seven chil
dren here waom I had the pleasure of
marrying some 20 years ago, in Illinois.
The yacht lies high and dry on the ways,
but we eat SBd sleep ia her as though she
weje still resting on the bosom of the
lake. The good doctor is an "awfully
goo 1 host, and one can never wearv of
his hospitality. We expect to get -ff for
Macsinac by Wednesday. R. F. s.

The Davenport Tribune after copying
what The Argus said last night relative
to the pofsibility of th street railway
syndicate disposing of its interests in ibe
three cities, adds:
Mr. Louderbacfe was seen last nieht by
a Tribune reporter and in reference to
the above staled that there was such a
deal beirg considered and that for bia
part he hoped it would succeed. Dr.
Allen, when asked aoout it. would say
nothing, nut laughed in a pleased sort of
away. The syndicate has done a great
deal for Davenport since it bought the
old street car lines.
The sale of the horses owned by the
Tri-city railway company, and thrown
out of a j ob by tbe introduction of elec
tricity on the lines of tbe company in the
tri cities, was opened yesterday at Lor-
toa Bros', stables on East Third street.
A crowd o' several hundred men, some
of them fine judges of horseflesh and
competent critics of fine points, attended
the sale. The animals shown were in
general good condi ion, and most of
them were really excellent horses for
common purposes, and they were well
broken, and, in the main, free from un
pleasant habits of biting, striking, kick-
ng, shying at newspapers and tbe like.
Still tbe bidding was rather moderate,
and most of the sales were made at very
moderate figures. It is safe to say that
the company sold almost every animal for
less money than it paid tor the same one
a year or so ago. A number, of gentle
men from other cities attended the sale,
and several purchases were made by
The highway commissioners of South
Rock Island are receiving no end of un
favorable comment as a result of their
arbitrary attitude toward the Rock Island
& Milan road regarding the changing of the
tower road, and the Davenport Democrat
for instance, says: "The increase in the
value of the taxable property of the
township would soon overbalance the
sum expended oa that highway. It is
such littleness as this that drives capital
away from tbe three cities, and gives
them an unpleasant reputation with the
money centers." Rock Island however,
has enjoyed a reputation not characteris
tic of either Moiine or Davenport fr fai:
ness and liberality with the syndicate, and
this city is in no way to blame for the
niggardly policy of the commissioners cf
South Rock Island township.
lavenpirtK Kail Club Diban t.
It seems to be rather up bill sledJing to
make a ball club pay in Davenport. The
Davenports sulered defeat at the hands
of Citumwa yesterday b" a score of-4 to
d, t!,en passed out ol existence. At a
mee ing of representatives of the Iowa
and Illinois league, at tbe Kimbail house
last eight it was decided to drop Davin
port and to form a 6 club league with i
6cbeiule. This decision had practically
oeec maae wnen the rs:M train arnvea
with J. D. Matteer of Cedar Rapids, who
mad a no objection to the arrangement on
tbe part of tbe club of that city. So the
Quitcy club scheduled in Davenport for
the next three days. which arrived oa the
same train as Mr. Matteer, was sent back
to Joliet -and plays there today. By
the time that tbe league has played out
tbe teries of games that begin today tbe
schedule will have been made out. Tbe
six clubs, it is understood, have all put
up a cash guarantee to play tbe season
out. The Davenport club was practically
outcf the league before last night's meet
ing. Part of the players bad been paid
off atid left tbe city.and some are mourned
by landlords and others.
Sa;;e, Rock Island's player, will proba
bly not sign for tbe remainder of the
season, but m xt year will take an impor
tant part in the formation of a duo in
which Rock Island and Moiine shall be
