A Trip to the Rainy Lake.
It was our pleasure', couple of

Northern Minnesota and portions of
Ontario, Canada, bordering on tlie
Ralnv Lake, that have gaiiiod such
prominence the last year, through Its
mineral resources While we have
frequently given extracts from other
papers and Interviews with parties
that have made overland trips in the
winter, about this country, we think
that a description from a representa

We left Bat Portage eight o'clock in
the evening, on EdnaBrydges.in com
msnd of the captain whose surname
she bean. The course through the
lake was one continuous winding be
tween islands, for a distance of sixty
miles, occasionally passing fisheries,
so numerous in these waten. Nearly
all the larger islands have names, and
some of them traditional histories,
either from Indians, or experiences of
early white explorera. One In parti
cular, the Massocie Island, is pointed
out to the pa He tigers. History has it
that nearly a hundred yean ago seven
missionary priests of the Catholic
church took refuge from pursuing
Indians on this Island and they were
followed up and massacred. To
their memorv is erected a large cross.
Half-past three in the morning we
entered the Big Traverse, the largest
bodv of water in the lake,being twen
ty miles north and south and sixty
east and west. The wind was blow
ing strong from the east, which made
the boat rock in good shape,and It was
not long before nearly all on board
were on deck. At five o'clock the boat
landed at the mouth of the Bainy
river, what Is called the Fishery.
Here is a large fish-house o^ned by
an American company, a U. S. cus

and a general store owned by broth
