What’s a Miracle
to some people Is really only the result of the
nse of knowledge and common-senae. Many
persons suffering from
hesitate about taking a remedy fearing It
will not help them, and they doubt whether
It really did <x> as mucL for oth la claimed.
This is not the w • Mr. C Druner of
Urbana, Ohio, did He writ s:

self and ate my raptier. and tto next morning
I walked out to breakfast without canes.

Father, Mother, and Tkrae Sisters Dead.
Mr. David Claypool, formerly Sergeant*
at-Annsoflhe New Jersey Senate, and now
.Notary Public at C'edarville, C umberland
Co., N. J., makes lhe following startling
-talenient: “My father, mother, ami three
sisters ail died with consumption, and my
lungs were so weak I raised blood. Nobody
thought I could live. My work (ship
smithing iwas very straining on me with my
weak constitution, and 1 was rapidly going
to the grave. While in this condition I
commenced using M ishlcr’s Herb Ritters,
and it saved my life. Because it was so
difficult to get it in this little place, and I
had improved so much, I stopped taking it
for a tune, and the result is that I have
commenced going rapidly down hill again.
Somehow, Mishier’s Herb Bitters gives
appetite and strengthens and builds me up
as nothing else does, and I must have a
dozen bottles at once. I'se this commu
nication as yon please, anti if any one wants
to he convinced of its truth, let them write
me and I will make affidavit to it, for I
owe my life to Mishier’s Her!) Bittei#.”
. The secret <>f the almost invariable relief
and cure of consumption, dysentery, diar
rh<ea, dyspepsia, indigestion, kidney and
liver complaints, when Mi siller's Herb
Ritters is used, is that it contains simple,
harmless, ami yet powerful ingredients,
that act on the blood, kidneys, and liver,
and through them strengthens and invigor
ates the whole system. Purely vegetable
in itrtcomposition; prepared by a regular
physician; a standard medicinal prepara
tion; endorsed by physicians and drug
gists. These are four strongjwiints in favor
ofMishler’s Herb Bitters. Mishier’s Herb
Bitters is sold hv all druggists Pricef 1.00
mr large bottle. 6 !«it ties for $5.00.

Italy’s despair, “I offer you hunger,
thirst, Want, wounds, danger and death
—whoso will choose these for liberty,

Standing upon the quarterdeck of
one of Admiral Fnrragul’s war vessels,
in his great naval light in Mobile Hay,
I received a signal from him to board
a reled gunlioat just surrendered after
a hard tight. Ascending the gangway
and reaching the deck, a sight greeted

That sergeant marched ahead with

“ Trump and dram awoke,

The arm of lhe.sergeant is shattered,

Read before Renn College Scientific
After the success gained by Cortez in
Mexico the adventurers of the Old
World remembered the country of
Florida which was reported to he as
rich in gold as Mexico. In 1527 a party
led by Narvaez sailed for Florida.
Landing somewhere on the coast they
wandered as far as Apalache, then
built- rude lioats and set out for the
mainland. Only one of the live boats
started ever reached the desired land,
and on the way this one passed the
mouth of a large river which poured
into the sea with immense force, carry
ing with it great quantities of earth
and many trees. As far as known, this
is the tirst time the Mississippi river
was ever seen by white men.
In 1539,1)e Soto, with a party of ad
venturers, sailed r Florida in search
of the gold which n;id tempted so many
on the 28th of May entered
the hay of Espirito Santo. Disembark
ing here they marched across the
country, and on a spring morning in
1541, two years from the time they
flrst landed on the shore of the New
World, they halted on the hanks of the
Mississippi river, at the mouth of the
Arkansas. The great river, which is
now the greatest thoroughfare of the
western world, then mdisturbed by
works of man, rushed furiously on to
the sea. Here the party remained for
some time; here De Soto died, disap
pointed in ltia search for gold, and
worn out with hardships endured, and
in the bed of the mighty river he had
discovered, he found Ins last ratting
Of the early explorations of the river
those of La Salle and Hennepin were
probably the most important. They
sLtru*d together on their expedition
but, alter passing through some of the
Great Lakes, separated. Hennepin was
taken prisoner by the Indians, and
carried into Minnesota where he dis
covered and named the Falls of Bt.

ill 1832, Henry Schoolcraft was at tiie
head of a scientific expedition party
which explored for the first time, the
source of the Mississippi. July 13,1832
lie discovered and named Lake Itasca,
which he supposed was the soutce of
the river. Itasca is described as a very
beautiful lake, surrounded by hills and
pine-clad shores. It is between five
and six miles in length, and from one
fourth to three-fourtl s of a mile in
width. It hits three arms; one to the
southeast thre.* miles long, one to the
southwest of the island which is near
the centre, and one to the northward,
to the outlet two and one-half miles
long. From the north end of the lake
the Father of Waters issues, and is
here about twelve feet wide, and from
twelve to eighteen inches deep.
Although for half a century this has
generally lieen regarded as the source
of the river, and although Schoolcraft
succeeded in obtaining for it the
recognition of geographers and map
make!* there lias l>een some doubt
about it being the true source.
Some authorities have given as the
remotest source, a small rivulet rising
a few miles south of the lake, and fall
ing into it, after forming a mimlier of
little basins; while the Indians of that
region have always claimed the real
source was beyond Itasca, and bad
never been seen by white man.
In 1881, a party led I»y rapt. Williard
Glazier, ana formed hy himself. his
brother George anil his friend Barrett
Paine, of Indianapolis, set out to ex
plore the region surrounding Lake Itas
ca, and toll ml if |>ossihle the true source
of the Mississippi. They proceeded to
to St. Paul where they speut the mouth
of June in preparing for the journey.
Leaving there July 4th they went up
the river making short stops at Minne
apolis. Monticcllo, St. Cloud and Little
Falls, and reached Rrainerd July 7.
This place is the nearest town of any
importance to Lake Itasca. Here they
stop|»ed to decide upon their route, and
after studying nia|*s of the country,
(.'apt. Glazier concluded that, while
Schoolcraft had found Itasca hy going
up the river through Lakes Winne
hegoshish, Cass and Bemidji, the most
direct route would l>e to go across the
country by way of Leech Lake.
At llrainerd they provided such
extra supplies of rations and clothing
as were considered necessary. At eight
o’clock on the morning of July 12th,
tliey commenced a wagon journey to
Leech Lake, reaching Gull Lake about
noon, where they halted for rest and
refreshment, About live in the morn
ing they reached they reached the
ranches of George Barclay, on Pine
river, the only white habitation be
tween Gull and Leech Here
they spent the night, and in tin morn
ing started again, reaching the Indian
Agency at Leech Lake about four that
Leech Lake is a very irregular shap
ed body of water, being a combination
of curves, peninsulas and bays,of which
only a map can give an accurate idea.
Ten islands are found in it, and seven
rivers and creeks enter it from various
quarters. It extends north and south
twenty miles, and east and west a some
what greater distance, with a coast line
of nearly four hundred miles. Its
waters are deep and clear, yielding
numerous tish. Such a lake i*i the
midst of a hunting and trapping coun
try is always of importance. Recog
nizing this, Canadian fur-traders es
tablished a trading post at this point
alsjiit one hundred tours ago.
Upon reaching Hie lake, Capt. Glazier
was told that there was au Indian,
Chenottagesic, who had really travers
ed the region surrounding the source
of the Mississippi, and would probably
accompany him as guide, but lie was
then absent with the Chippewa In
dians upon their annual hunting expid
ition. As the party were anxious to
secure an interpreter, guides and birch
lunk canoes, they decided to await the
return of the Cbippewas, who weroex
pected in a few days.
Upon their return a council was held,
and the object of the journey stated to
them. Chenowagesic said the country
they wished to visit had l>een his hunt
ing ground for years, but that no white
man had seen the source of the Father
of Waters; that he himself would fur
nish the maps, guide them and would
consult the other ludians about canoes.
Only a short time was required to com
plete the maps, and on the morning of
July 17th, three Chippewas, including
Chenowag esic, each brought a canoe
and laid it down upon the shore of the
lake. One other Indian wished to ac
company them, and these, with Capt.
Glazier, hia brother and Paine, were
distributed in the three canoes. An
hour’s vigorous pulling took them
across the arm of the lake on which
the agency is situated, and a short
portage over a point of land brought
them to another body of water. They
coasted along the shore of this for
some time and then headed across the
lake for the mouth of the Kabekanka
river. Between two and three hours’
work with the paddles brought them
to an inlet, into which the Kabekanka
river empties, and about eleven o’clock
the came upon a small lake, formed by
an expansion in the river. As they as
cended, the river became narrower and
swifter, and they bad nearly concluded
that they could go no farther in the
canoes when they came to a pond of
still water. They soon discovered that
this pond was the outlet of a beautiful
lake about seven miles loug. Here the
party remained all night in a tent they
had rendered mosquito proof, and here
they enjoyed a moeq uito serenade, for
tunately out of reach of the musicians,
for it is said that Minnesota mosquitos
demand nothing less than blood for
their singing. Finding that the In
dians had no name for this lake, Capt.
Glazier called it Lake Garfield.
At the head of the lake they were in
formed that they had to make a portage
of * ‘or three miles. Ignorant of the
b», store for them, they packed
thf <gage into convenient shape
for cai tying And. folio wing thei r guides,
wont up hill and down, over logs and
throe "'ll bogs, scratching hands and
aeea, and minting for breath, till it
aeemt 1 as if they could go no farther,
while the Indians showed no signs of
fatigu ' Finally they halted for a
abort i At, bat, eager to higher
ground, soon hurried on till ont of
mosquito range. After dinner, which
the? ate here, they descended the hill,
and a few rods from the foot came to
a chain of live lakes. Pulling through
three of these, alternated by as many
portages, they camped thai night on
tbe bank of the fourth.
In the morning they started at seven
and reached the last of the portage
chain about ten. These and another
string of lakes passed during the day,
having never been visited by white
persons, were named by Captain Glaz
ier for cavalry officers in the Civil
War. Toward evening they reached
the largest body of water between
Leech Lake and Itasca, called by an
Indian name meaning Blue Snake.
Crossing this at a place aliout five
miles wide they carried the canoes to a
narrow strip of land separating it
from another lake less than half the
size. Here they spent tbe night, aud
in the morning launched their canoes
on the companion to the lake crossed
the previous evening. These two lakes
Capt. Glazier called Lake George and
Lake Paine, in honor of his compan
ions. After crossing I>ake Paine they
catne to a small river, down which
they went some five or six miles,
crossed to another river and then en
tered a small Lake. After crossing
this they came to a river which they
named Schoolcraft; after leaving
which they were compiled to portage
again, and coming out of a thicket be
tween three and four in the afternoon
they saw the waters of Lake Itasca.
The canoes were quickly placed on this
and pulled across a distance of about
two or three miles to the island, where
the party halted for the night.
About eight in the morning they l»e
--gan coasting the shores of Itasca and
found the outlets of six small streams,
two having well defined mouths and
four filtering into the lake through
bogs. The upper end of the south
western arm was heavily margined
with rushes and swamp grass, and,
after considerable difficulty,a way was
forced through this barrier Into the
larger of the two open streams flowing
into this end of the lake. Although
perfectly familiar w »th the country the
Indian guide was fer some moments
greatly disturlted by the r ‘work f
rushes in which they were itangled.
but finally siezing the end of the canoe
he pulled it after hitn into the clear
water of »he Mississippi, which, at the
point of entering Itasca is about seven
feet wide and one foot deep. After a
slow progress of about two hundred
yards they came to a blockade of logs.
The guides removed this and they con
tinued to urge the canoe forward, al
thougu ?j posed by a strong and rapid
ly increasing current. As they neared
the head of the great river they could
easily touch both shores with their
hands at the same Line, and the aver
age depth did not exceed five inches.
At last,on pulling their way through a
network of rushes similar to that en
countered on leaving Itasca, they came
to a beautiful little lake—the source of
the Mississippi river.
This lake is about one and one-half
miles in greatest diameter, and would
be nearly oval in form but for a small
promontory which extends its shores
into the lake, forming the shape of a
heart. It is fed by three small creeks,
two of which have their origin in
springs at the foot of sand hills two or
three miles distant. The third is the
outlet of a small lake situated in a
marsh to the southward. Having sat
isfied themselves that they at last
looked upon the remotest source of the
Mississippi, the partv went to the small
promontory overlooking the lake, and
in honor of their achievement, fired a
volley for each tnemlier of the party.
When the firing ceased Paine »tep|>ed

named Lake Glazier in honor of its

The latitude of Lake Glazier is 47-13

cent it is atiout three feet above Lake

traders, is probably the reason its

fro. They live under the coral, aud on
top and in between the black spots are
big sea eggs, with spines six inches
long, ihe coral is covered with fishes
of all kinds—parrots, angels, yellow
tails, and grunts. The fishes have a
dozen or more colors, and one kiml
that I think heats ’em all is pure blue
from head to foot. It’s only about six
inches long, and I never saw them
away from the big heads.
“After pfactice you can stay down
three or four minutes, and by swim
ming along with your eyes open you
can get a look at the lot, and then try
and break off a branch with a boat
hook of iron. Sometimes we have to
go down four or five times to get a
piece; theu, if it’s big, put a rope
around it and haul it up. Must of the
small can be picked up with a
hook that looks like a pair of oyster
hooka, >ut it’s apt to break it, so I gen
erally go overltoard where tbe coral
ain’t too thick. There’s one place I
know where for a hundred acres it’s so
thick that there ain’t a place to put
your foot—one big field of branch coral.
The big heads generally grow on the
edge of a flat that’s covered with grass,
right near the edge of the channel, and
I can Ltke you to a spot where there’s
coral heads that are ten foot across and
six high. Some of the big ones weigh
over one thousand pounds. When
they get big they often die away on
top, and finally git hollowed out and
look like big vases holding angel fishes,
crawfish, and a little of almost every
thing. You never see the big heads
here, because vessels can’t get near 'em,
and stuall lioats wouldn’t bold one. In
water about twenty to twenty-five feet
deep we git the best pieces, what they
call rose coral. 1 git them by divin’, as
they’re so small you can’t see’em hard
ly. I've got huuches not bigger than
your hand, and got $lO for'em.Pretty
aiu.t no name for ’em. The last one 1
got came near cleanin’ me out.”
“How so?”
“Well,” replied the coral diver, “we
have a tish on the reef calied the sting
aree; it’s as Mat as your hand, with two
side wings that move up and down as
it swims along. They are about two
or three feet wide and six or eight feet
long. The tail is just like the lash of a
whip, and right where it joins the Ihhlv
there are three strings ol' bone,one
right above the other, live or six inches
long, with edges like a saw. They
have a way of sinking down to the bot
tom, and with a shuttle something like
that of hen in the dust, covering itself
with sand. This day I speak of 1 was
driften' along In about three fathoms,
layin’in the boat lookin’ through the
glass, while my mate was at the oars
ready to stop her wher: 1 sung out.
All at once I clapped my eyes on a nice
head of rose coral, and over 1 went.
I reckon it was aliout fifteen foot jest
there, aud 1 went down with such a
rush that I went near the bottom right
over the little brown head. I grabbed
at what I thought was a hunch of weed,
to hold on while 1 picked up the coral.
I got it, and then let ray feet down on
to the bottom to give myself a shove
up,when, olim! Mini' came something
around my legs, and I’m dogged if 1
diden’t think they were off at the
knees, and a big stmgaree tlew up by
me, takin’ me on all sides. The next 1
knew 1 was in the dingy, but how I
f;ot there I didn’t know. * Hob said he
ooked over and saw blood in the wat
er and the fish, and thought a shark
had me. The fish raised such a dust
that for a minute he could’nt see noth
ing. he grabbed the gains, then seein’
me on the bottom put ’em into my
drawers, ami hauleb me up. I’d faint
ed, clean gone, as sure as you’re alive.
1 looked like that old fish market over
yonder, all streaked with gore. There
was a dozen cuts across my legs, jist
like a red-hot iron had been put on*
and if I’d have Men alone it would
have been a gone case.”

A Vmlou Soldier'* Prltllw*
From the St. Louie Globe-Democrat.
s>ome of the Democratic organs ue
disposed, we observe, to criticise the
address delivered by Gen. Logan on
Memorial Day. It was in bad taste,
they claim, and calculated to revive the
smoldering fire? of sectional prejudice
and resentmeij* "he beautiful and
impressive ' of honoring the
graves of th lead with floral
decorations, ». -nder song and
eulogy, they - say, should not be
giveuovertc , .usan uses, or to the
expression of thoughts and feelings
w uich a certain portion of the people of
the country cannot conveniently share.
This is correct, in a sense; but at the
saute time there may be a difference of
opinion its to what constitutes parti
sanship in this connection, and how
much may properly lie pardoned, un
der some circumstances, to a tnan who
served in the Union army and who
stands beside the graves of his fellow
comrades, charged with the duty of
talking about them and the cause for
which they gave what Mr. Lincoln call
ed “the last lull measure of devotion.”
Gen. Logan began Ins address by de
claring that in all the history of the
world there cannot be found a parallel
to tbe magnanimity of our Govern
ment toward those who were engaged
in the ■iareboklen' rebellion. Tins
declaration will surely not beuisputed.
The fact is a present and vivid one.
Every school-boy understands that none
of the leaders of that terrible revolt
have ever been punished for their
treason. Nolxxly was banished or
thrown into prison on account of serv
ice in the Confederate army. Jeff Davis
himself is alive. <u>d free to go and
come as he pleases, ami to receive the
homage of those who choose to consider
him worthy of such attention. Tbe
Bta ea that were in rebellion have all
been restored to their former places as
members of the Union, with all the
rights and privileges that Urey enjoyed
before the war, and Uie men who con
trol them are the same men who des
perately, but vainly, tried to separate
them from the other States and estale
lish a new Government, there are no
precedents for these things. The like
has never been known elsewhere, in
any age of the world; land certainly a
soldier may be permitted to speak of a
matter us striking and significant as
this on a day sacred to the memory of
his dead brother-in-arms.
Hut this is not all. We have not
stopped with forgiveness and the plac
ing of the control of the local interests
of the seceding States in the hands of
those who did their utmost to dissolve
the Union and prolong the existence ot
slavery. Our magnanimity lias gone
to the length, at least, as Gen. Logan
pointed out, of turning over the Gener
al Government to this class of citizens,
and saving in effect that “the men who
were powerless to destroy the most
potent to save.” There cannot lie any
doubt about tins, either. It is as plain
and familiar as any other feature of
the situation. Aud shall a soldier l>e
blamed for touching upon such a point
when treating of the sacrifices and
triumphs of the war? We do not see
how he could well avoid it, and yet
present this theme definitely and thor
oughly. Our soldiers died for some
thing more than the simple credit of
overcoming a brave and determined
enemy, or preserving the integrity of a
given extent of territory; if not, they
died to cheaply, and we lionor them too
highly. And >et. twenty years after
the close of the struggle in which they
went down, whilea large share of those
who fought with them still survive, the
Government that they helped to save
is practically in possession of the very
element that caused the war and all its
loss and woe.
A man like Gen. Logan, who was in
Pie thickest of the fray, may be indulg
ed it seems to us. when he.asks in the
name of those who yielded up their
lives under his command if conciliation
lias not been carried to an extravagant
and humiliating point. Not only have
tnen who l»ore a prominent part in the
affairs of the Confederacy been exalted
to positions of importance in the coun
cils of the present administration, but
other men more obnoxious as Northern
sympathizers with tlie rebellion have
been hunted up and honored with ap
lointments for no other reason, seem
ingly, than to vindicate them and to
give’notice that the time lias arrived
when the worst form of disloyalty dur
ing the war is the best recommenda
tion for a Federal office. May not a
Union soldier speak of that glaring
reversal of policy which has heretofore
i>ecn pursued in this res|*ecty And
shall he not he allowed to assert his
wonder, his regret, his protest,for him
self not only, t*ul for those as well who,
lasing dead, can say nothing? The
matter is not a partisan one, except in
so far as parties differ with regard to
the meaning of patriotism. It goes
deejier and reaches farther than any
consideration of ordinary political sen
timent of prejudice.
Gen. Grant said in a speech to the
veterans of the Army of the Tennessee,
at lies Moines, a few years ago: “We
welcome all who come forward in good
faith to help build up the waste places,
and to (terpetuale our institutions
against all enemies, as brothers in full
interest with us in a common heritage
Hut we are not prepared to a|»ologize
for tlie* part we ti*ok in the war.” That
was the spirit of Gen. Logan's address,
last Saturday, lie was willing, lie
said, to go to a reasonable limit in the
way of conciliation, hut lie could not
consent to the theory that Union sol
diers should a|H»logize for having hated
treason and helped to put down the re
bellion. It was his right tcn»ay that—
a right earned with his sword on the
tieltls where fell U ecomrades hy whose
graves, and of whose services, he was
talking. He could not have said less
and been just and faithful. The cir
ca instance* that gave his words special
emphasis and invited the criticism of
Heinocratic newspapers were not of
his making. He spoke not as a parti
san seeking influence of a pending elec
tion, hut as a soldier, jealous of the
fame of the nation’s dead, and anxious
to enfore the obligations of respect and
gratitude that are due to their memory,
regardless of all partisan interest. And
every soldier and every loyal heart
will thank ami honor hini for it.
