boats and tratstIorted 83 ieni across
itle lake, and sent tle boats back for
the rest of the men. But day now be

Ized that if the attemipt against the

ex)eition niust act at once.
Nothing daunted by the fact that
their force was so few, and, making up
In patriotic dev;tlion whiat they lacked
in numiners, Colonel Allen called for
volunteers for the perilous venture.
"I do not urge tiny to enter on this
enterprise contrary to his will, inas
much its it Is i desperite attempt,
whch none but the bravest of itten
dare undertake," cried Colonel Al
