has charge of tho boats, with tbo information
that you aro to suit your own pleasure as to a

It scorns a little odd at first, as you havo been
accustomed to so much overlooking from previ

that you accepted each on arrangement as tho

you follow suit with the rest. You rise pretty
nearly at your own hour, and, sauntering into

cumbers, and nipped tho flowers; everybody
looked bine and discouraged. To have winter
comoln August gives one, as some writer recent
ly says, a peculiar sc quo of helplessness and
vagqa uneasiness,—a feeling that a trilling ad
ditional rise or fall of temperature, such ua
might bo expected by any slight hitch in tho
machinery of tho universe, would crowd man
kind out of oxistouco. To bo suro do such
hitch bos over occurred, but what if it should ?
It was quite suggestive of a most heroic dis
position to do ono’s duty in splto of most chil
ling surroundings, to observe at a restaurant
during one of those cold evenings a couple of
ladies, wrapped in blanket-shawls and furs, and
sUiroringly partaking of ico-ercam.
Fifty of tho USD guests at the Fountain House

than made good by this time, for during the last

The band from tho Soldiers’ Homo came out
on tialuiday and gave ns a raro treat. In spite
of tho cold quite a number wore walking and
driving in the Park, while a crowd blocked tho
street and clung to tho fonco outside,—probably
cu tho principle that “Distance lends enchant
ment to the sound.” Of course, the modest en
trance fee had nothing to do with it.
Tho quartotlo from Milwaukee gave a fine
concert on Tuesday evening, but it was poorly
attended. Those who were there felt sorry for
those who did not come. Miss Jennie Owens
has a toico of groat purity and power, and seems
to sing with perfect ease. She gave “ Beautiful
Bird, Bing On,” as as encore, and “The last Bobo
at Summer.” by request. Miss livens’ singing
was also much admired. Tho superior quality
and tone of FroLJb'aville's voice aro well Known
to many Western audiences.
The fall shipments of water bare began.
Many of the departing visitors take a barrel or
two with them, and large orders are coming in
from the different agencies throughout tbo

many barrels ate sent from the Biluriau,
Lethean, White Hock, and all the rest.

It ia quite the custom to take the papers, a

which to while the hours away; butthoro is al

Elderly gentlemen discuss politics, aud matronly

An Abbess from the Convent of the Sacred
Heart, In Louisville, Ky., attracts attention
from her peculiar dress and ,’engaging manners.
Strikingly in contrast to the severity of her plain
attire are the handsome dresses of the young
ladies upon the croquet ground. Boat-brown
aud violet-blue are thu pjovadmg colors in silks
and woolen goods. Occasionally one sees au
airy cambric or huun, but the cold weather has
consigned thin fabrics very generally to the bot
tom of the trunk, mid people are
afraid to get them nut again. Clus

are quick to seize the treasures of Nature as she

can bo preserved far into the depths of winter
by packing them iu sand. After putting them
in warm water fur a few minutes, they will bo

Tho quiet of tho beautiful Sabbath evening at

two men from Chicago, named Hogau and Van

a citizen named HwiUVtot, of that place. When
interfered with in a friendly matmiir by Ollicor
Wyman, of Chicago, who waa rusticating there,
Hogan diow a revolver and cotnmencrHr shoot
in-c. The fire was returned by tho oftlcor. No
body was seriously injured. Ulliccr Wyman had
a bullet pass through the fleshy t>art of tho loft
arm, and Hogan had one pass in at thu wrist and
lodge in the elbow. The roughs were arrested
and lodged in Jail.
A cowardly slabbing affray was tho next in

On Tim Mknomonbf. lUtr.n, Aug. 21.—Our
partv of four in just. returning from a vocation
trip to tho hoadwalcrsof tho Menomonee. having
spent nearly A week on tho Brule. one of tho
heat trout streams in tho Northwest, nnd traveled
beyond whore any Whilo man Ims been during
tho present year, Tho Itruld is one of threo
streams which form tho Menomonee. Tho Paint
empties into the Brulo At Brulo Falls, and 0 miles
below ibo Michigararno joins them; am] thcuco*
lornard tho united river forms tho boundary be
tween Wisconsin and Michigan until it empties
into Cirocn May, nearly 200 miles below. Xbero
of reaching the Undo—tho First by poling In ca
noes up tho Monomohoo from its mouth,—a dull
cult nml tedious process; tho second by
traveling by wagon from tho Town of
Monomouoo, at tho mouth of tho river,
or, bolter yol, from Roc. pi. n point on tho
railroad 18 miles beyond, to sumo point well up
tho Monoraonoo, cither Hturpcon Uivor, Dickey's,
or Badwator, having previously arranged to have
your supplies, guides, ami canoes, moot you nt
tho appointed spot; or, which Is perhaps tho
better plan, go by rail to Mlchlgammo Lake,
winch is but a short distance from Marquette,
taking supplies, Indians, aud canoos, from Me
nomonee, tliciico traveling by canoes down
Mlchigamtno Diver to a portngo which brings
you into tiio Undo, about 30 miles above its
mouth. Each of theso routes is interesting;,
none of them is easy, aud In any caso It Is neces
sary to carry camp equipage, cooking-utensils,
and provisions, for tho whole trip away from tho
railroad. For in tho whole Brnlo country It Is
impossible to procure oven pork and flour, and
tbo only outside dependence is tho fishing-rod
nnd riilo.
Thoro aro also two styles of
rnKi'AiiATio* ron seen a ntn*,—
ono llko our own, with nil tho necessaries,
abundant fishing tackle, blankets, ami warm
clothing 5 another with a magnificent array of
hair mattresses, camp chairs, crockery, and fiuch
paraphernalia, tho peculiar virtues of which are
only appreciated after making a dozen or more
portages, hauling canoes over bwl ft rapids or
shallow bare, or dragging them day after day
through tho tangled woods and underbrush.
Onco at Undo Falls, trout fishing begins, for
tbero Is none in tho Monomonoe, Faint, or Mlchl
paramo Livers. Just below tho Fails a largo
tluh wilt oco&fllonatly riso to tho fly, and also in
tho rapids for tho next ratio above. For iS
miles np tho stroma wo found tho fishing gradu
ally improving, our last day’s catch near tho
portago to Loot Lake being 5115, A party that
wo mot, camped at Lrulo Falls, and who had
not fished nmro than six miles alone, wont away
discouraged tho morning after oar arrival; but,
although thoro had boon continued rains for
moro than a week, and tho watir was very high,
wo found firm fishing farther up, and woro satis
fied that if wo would wait for a lower stago of
water wo could easily double or treble our catch.
Lut thoro was no object to do so, for
Even with nil tho aid our Indians could giro us,
wo could not oat what ouo or two mou could
catch. It is impossible to ship or carry thorn to
our friends in Chicago. Thoro is not a man,
woman, or child, white, colored, or Indian, with
in reach to giro them away. No truo sportsman
will pilo brook-trout on tho bank to rot; and it
certainly detracts somewhat from tho dignity of
tho spnrt, and dulls its edge, to unhook them ns
fast'as caught and drop them again into tho
stream; yet that is what wo woro regularly forced
to do.
the imuLE
is as fine aelroam to tlsh as tho most fastidious
dy-llshermau could desire. It is from 20 to GO
yards wide, clear, rapid, froo from snags and
underbrush, and at almost any spot on tho 20
miles which wo traveled a man can throw a fly
m any direction from a canoe in the centre anil
reach any nfllo or holo desired. Tho dillictilfy
ofaccoesnf tho stream is compensated for by the
easo and eatisfaclioii with which It can bo fished.
In high water, as last week, two Indians, one
at each end of tho canoe, will hold it perfectly
steady with their netting-polls at any point de
sired, gradually dropping it down stream, or
forcing It up tho current; m low water they
would have to drag it over many shallow places :

are also caught in tho Miboroonoo. lu some of
the smaller streams trout are found m consider
able numbers, and a very satisfactory day was
spent by two of our party fishing a
stream which runs through a meadow about
I‘tffmles from Badwater. In the Piko Fiver,
which empties into tho Menomonee, only 40
miles above its mouth, tbo trout-fishing is ox
celkut, commencing at a point about 10 miles
above its mouth. This point can be roachod

rough day, which is a decided advantage, and no
Cauoon aro necessary. In due, tho whole Menom
onee and Brule country is well stocked with fish,
of good size, ami great variety, and none of tho
streams hare boon much tlahod, and In (act (hoy
seem to bo comparatively little known. Ours
was the third parly which had boon on (he Brule
during tho present season ; but if a railroad is
over built in that neighborhood, as now contem
plated, I propose to ho ono of a party to enjoy
tho first season’s sport, taking prompt advan
tage of tho easo of transportation and the oppor
tunity of carrying homo some of tho trout.

an unbroken mass of rich foliage gradually
receding to tbe pines ou adjacent blulTs.
This furcst is a solitude. Fur nearly
a week wo did not see a living soul,
and our guides, who bavo traveled (ho
routes many times, mumurr and winter,
toll us that ob tbe Undo lllvcr, frotu Us
mmilh to its source, tbdre is no person
living, not even an Indian. Very seldom did we
hear auv sound of a bird, except tbu uuisu of tbe
pigeons’ mugs, or the occasional hoarse croak
nt tbo raven. It would seem as though singing
birds could not enduro the wilderness, and
sought the neighborhood of man. Once at
night wo heard the distant howl nt a wolf, and
that is tne only sound of animal which I remem
ber. An occasional faint trail where the Indians
carry a canoe around rapids, or cross to some
lake, is all that could prove distasteful to Dan
iel lioone, much as ho abhorred civilisation and
the approaching foot of the white nmu.
in winter the Indians travel this whole section
of country, trapping mink, otter, and beaver in
abundance. In antuioer, they can go bv canoe,

in tho smaller, all standing upright and tiding

parsed the cataract at our right, and touched but
half of tho broad basin which received tho foam
