COM M UNICATIONS._
[From our Regular Correupondcnt.]
letter from the Backwoods of Maine.
No. ft—From Kineo to Katahdin.
Dear Press:—Your readers will let me
make a personal explanation in as few words
as I can. The tour, of which these letters give
a brief history, was not undertaken or accom
plished for the sake of pleasure; but the writr
er had a specific object in view, a daily task to
perform. The work performed posesses scien
tific interest merely; and to present, the re
sults of this labor in your columns would not
only be out of place, but would be a positive
bore to your readers. Ileuce, in these com
munications, I have tried to avoid even allu
sions to scientific matters, presenting only
those facts which mighyie supposed to attract
the attention of a casual summer tourist. 1
have thus endeavored to account for any little
discrepancies which may have been noticed by
your readers, and I trust the explanation is
sufficient.
There are one or two notabilities on the Pe
nobscot river, whom we had the pleasure of
seeing at Chamberlain Farm last season. They
were not there this year, but the n . mory of
their peculiarities and sayings is as fresh to
day as when we saw and heard them in the
large room at Chamberlain farm-house last Au
gust. Around the fire was seated, among less
er lights, Dean Mureh, and Jack Mann. These
two short, little men, may well be called one
class of Penobscot river-drivers. That there
are now two classes of these craftsmen, no
one who knows them will deny; the one class
steady, and very hard workers; the other
class composed of hard drinkers, and they, al
so, are hard workers, in fact, hard fellows, ev
ery way. The latter class are worthy descend
enta of the river-drivers of the olden time,
when every “driver” was welcomed at the
Oldtown boom by a most jovial drunk, and
“when a crew of men could drink enough to
float one log.” The other class is made up of
men of steadier habits. To which of these
classes my two fi-iends Jack and Dean belong,
truth compels me to say that they are not num
bered with the latter-day saints; in fact they
are adherent* to the faith of their predecessors.
Jack Maim is a short, thick man, with a jolly
round head, set square upon a pair of broad
shoulders, while the aforesaid shoulders, with
an intermediate body of considerable size, arc
supported by a couple of curved nethers. In
truth, his legs are bowed. But that is no dis
advantage to Jack, as it might be to people
differently constituted; for, like a pair of ellip
tic carriage springs, these legs give a certain
air of elasticity to him. The funny thing
about Jack Mann, however, is his face. It is
always wide-awake, and running over with fun,
and yet the expression is comically sober.—
Those of you who have seen Artemas Ward
know what 1 mean by a face “comically solier,’’
a droll Dice. But Jack’s face you can only see
in the woods, Artemas you find in Vanity Fair.
Aod Dean Murch is cousin-german to Jack in
form aud feature, but with more years on his
head. Ills liuir is whitened with hard work
and exjiosure, and yet the old man has much
strength left.
I believe we were talking about trout in the
the Bast Branch, when Dean related quite an
adventure in the line of fishing, claiming, I
think, to have known brook trout so plenty
that you couldn't see the bottom of the river.
Juck was called ujxin for his exjiericnce, and
he slowly responded by placing both hands in
liis pockets aud winking once or twice at the
candle over the fire.
“Well, I can't say, as I ever saw much trout
but once, and that was on the West Branch,
k ou see I had come out ot Sourdnaliunk
stream with half a million feet ot logs and had
just drove them into the river. But they
hung up just abreast of the stream and we
didn’t know what to make of it, till we found
out, it was trout! You see, boys, the trout
was so thick that they had ‘jammed,’ just as a
drive of logs will, and I had to w alk out on
their backs more’ll half a mile to begin to chop
out a passage! And our logs never started for
three days; till we had cleared away a few
million fish, and I’ve never hankered after
trout since that time!”
The hearty laugh with which Jack's tri
umph in bragging was hailed, showed that the
crowd considered the match between the cham
pions, a “diamond cut diamond” one. that the
shar|iest and hardest would jkiIIsIi off the oth
er. Dean acknowledged that Jack was ahead
on trout, but on moose he wouldn't give in to
anybody. Among other things he said he had
shot a bull-moose w hile descending certain
rajiids in a birch ! Jack said very quietly that
he “hadn’t shot many moose but he did kill
one once jiretty handsome. I was out on Ches
uucook and killed this moose .first shot halfway
across the luike! (1 1-g miles!) And as to
your killing yours as you came down ‘rijis,’
that isn’t much compared to mine, for when I
fired my gun, the w aves ran so high I couldn't
shift a chaw of tobacker from one cheek to the
other, Thout tipping over!’’
“Pooh,” said Dean, “I've killed moose on
Chesuncook when the waves were so higli
that you couldn't stand on the shore and look
at ’em!”
I might tell a good many queer anecdotes of
their relating but, in order to properly indi
cate their emphatic words.I should be obliged,
in obedience to a certain conventionalism, to
have recourse to the use of dashes, and so
frequently, that your supply, dear Press,would
be exhausted.
Still, I cannot refrain from repeating a little
ghost story of Jack's w hich, with Dean's ex
planation, may be of use to mediums of the
present day, and our good city. Excepting the
intensives, 1 give the story in Jack's language.
We was warping a boom across Eagle Lake
one time ut about one o’clock at night,and itwas
the darkest night I ever saw. When we were
about in the middle of the Lake, we see a face
bigger than ony of ours and it was all on fire.
I thought it was the devil and so did all the
boys, but we didn’t feel much scared and so we
sung out something or other to him. He only
answered by two raps on a kind of brass bell,
kept a coming nearer to the headworks of the
boom. Such eyes you never saw, they were
just like coals of fire and his mouth was full of
bright smoke. Some of the fellows began to
get a little bit skeery and one or two of them
thought the boom Is ' md ought to be seen to,
“and for ail we kept Hollering, he didn't do
uolhing but rap, rap, rap, on that bell of his.
I tell you it wasn’t very pleasant to see him
spit lire not more’n twenty rods from you and
so I took up my rifle and, thinks I, old boy
you’d better stop puffing. The boys said I’d
better not fire, cause he might get mad and
then there would be no stopping of him. Hut
I took up the old gun and aimed at his eyes
and said, ‘I’ll give the devil his due anyway,’
and the cap fushed ami went out. When I
seed it warn't no go, I tell you boys didn't I
draw on my vocabberlary? But when that cap
went out, the devil went out too, for that was
the last we see of him.”
We all guessed in turn what might have
l>een the cause of the apparition, and although
one suggested that the supper might have
raised Ills Satanic majesty, and another said
that whiskey had more to do with it than
brimstone, it was plain that the conversation
was fast drifting to the land of the dim and
wierd.
And now came Dean's revenge.
"Don t you know how that came about.
Jack ?”
Jack was a little shy. but said, alter awhile,
“No, nor you either.”
“Oh, yes, my boy, and this Is how it was.—
\ ou know I kept the cook’s Is tat on that drive,
don’t you? Well, one night when it was ter
rible dark, I w as rowing with Bill J-to the
head works with night luncheon. We rowed
still and could hear every word you said on
the boom. When we had got pretty near. Bill
struck a match to light his pipe, and we heard
you begin to talk about “what’s that?” And
Bill knew it kind of made his fare look strange
like, and he made me keep lighting matches
and lie would hold them up to his face as he
was smoking. And we could tell you were all
scared, and so we hept coming nearer, till, at
once, we heard your cap snap; and. Bill, lie
says to me, as quick as lightning, Tull to the
left; pull as if you were going home, pull.’—
And then we rowed round for a little while,
and Bill says, ‘That was a mighty narrow
squeak for me, wasn’t it? If he’d a 11 red.'
And so you never knew what it was afore that
frightened you, didn't you, Jack?”
Jack was bent down a minute by the laugh
ter at him, and then said,
“By thunder, Dean Murch, come to think of
it, I wasn’t on that drive at all! I must ho
heard about that yhost I 1 wasn’t on Uie
drive P
“Nor I either said Dean.
Do you wonder that I have never forgotten
that evening of wonderful stories and the trials
of river wit.
It is wdth just such tournaments of bragging
that the river-drivers keep up their spirits in
their hard work, and, although, like Jack,
they “draw pretty freely on their vocabulary,”
their stories are like old wine.
11 “ «=*»>“ iinitx ui uie tmiiinem outlet or
Chamberlain I.ukc. and we then come to Round
Lake or Telosis. It is a noticeable peculiarity
of these lakes, that they have a most perfect
clieraux rte /rise around the shores. The
fringe is of drift wood, piled up when the wa
ter is high in the spring of the year, aud the
water is rendered higher from the fact that the
lumbermen have placed, at most of the outlets,
dams to give them a better supply of water for
the spring driving. Were It not for this fringe
of dead trees, the Lake Chamberlain would be
one of the finest of our inland lakes.
'I elosis, or little Telos, is only a couple of
miles in diameter, and is noticed hero only be
cause it is on our way to Telos Lake lieyoud.
This lake has attracted a good deal of atten
tion, from its having been the cause of the Te
los controversy. This war with the St. John
people was spoken of in a former letter and
need now be merely alluded to. Telos is said
to be the Indian word for “end of the way,”
since in former times it was necessary to carry
across into Webster Lake, Telos being the end
of the way of the River St. John. Let your
high-school readers see what the Greek word
telos means, and let them look into this curi
ous analogy. On the shores of this lake I
found, imlicddcd in the mud, an old French
dress-sword. The blade was broken in two,
and one portion was lost, but the finish of the
remaining half was discernablc, even through
the rust of many years. How did it come
there, on the banks of that inland lake?

THE GREAT INDIAN REMEDY
FOR FEMALES.
Dr MATTISON'S INDIAN KM M KNAG OGUE.
This celebrated Female Medicine,
possessing virtues unknown of any
thing else of the kind, and proving
effectual after all others have failed,
is designed for both married and
ftiNOLB LADIKA, and is the very best
tiling known for the purpose, as it
will bring on the monthly sickness
in caws* of obstruction, after all other
remedies of tho kind have beeu tried
in vain.
tF“over 2000 BOTTLES have
now been sold without a single fail
ure when taken as directed, and with
out the least injury to health iu anu
'case.
It is put up in bottles of three dif
ferent strength* with Bill directions
for using, and sent by express, closely sealed, to all
parts of the country.
Price*.—Full strength, 910; Half Strength, 95;
Quarter Strength, ?3r**r bottle
Remember! This medicine is designed ex
pressly for Obstinate Casks, which all other rem
edies of the kind have failed to cure; also that it ia
warranted a* represented in every resjtect, or the
price will be refhndi-d.
rP“*HEWARK OF IMITATIONS! Neiegenuine
and warranted unless purchased directly of Dk. M.
at his REMEDIAL INSTITUTE FOB SPECIAL
DISEASES, No. 28 Union Street, Providence, R. I.
IF Thi* speciality embraces all disease of a pri
vate nature both of MEN and WOMEN, by a regu
larly educated physiclau of twenty years’ practice,
giving his whole attention to them.
U1’ Consultations bv letter or otherwise are strictly
confidential, and inedieine* will be sent bv Express,
secure from observation, to all parts of tne United
States. Also, accommodations for LADIES from
abroad wishing for a secure and quiet Retreat, with
good care until restored to health.
CAUTION.—It has been estimated that over two
hundred thousand dollars are paid to swindling
quacks annually, in New Kugland alone, without any
benefit to those who pay it. Most of this sum comes
out of a class of persons who are the least able to lose
it, but once paid they can never get it bark, and they
are compelled to surfer the wrong in silence, not dar
ing to expose the cheat for fear of esposina them
selves. All this comes from trusting, without inquiry,
to men who are alike destitute or honor, character,
and skill, and whose only recommendation is their
own false and extravagant assertum.*, iu praise of
themselves. If, therefore, you would avoid being
humbugged, take no man's word, no matter what hts
professions are, but MAKE INQUIRY it will cost
you nothing, and may save you many regrets; for as
advertising physicians, iu nine cases out of ten are
bogus, there is no safety in trustiug any of them, uu
less you know wht> and what they are.
rfr- Dr. M. will send free, bv enclosing one stamp
as above, a Pamphlet on DISEASES OF WOMEN,
and on Private tHeeases generally ; giving most Bill
information, with the most undoubted references and
testimonials, without which no advertising physician
or medicine of this kind is deserving of any confi
dence WHATEVER.

your address plainly, and direct to Dr. H. N. Matti
