Maupin Writes Entertain ingly of His Visit to Big Lake. liic. Lakk. Misssuuri. August 23. 191 After a lever of the r u and reel has spent an entire summer in wondering whether he will get a chance among the moss and the lillypads, it comes ruigh'y good to get away for even one day. And when to the one d-3" off one can make it , a day back in the rceues of his early ; youth, among the friends of his earlier I days, a lot of disappointment over a two weens' vacation is wiped out. i Big Lalte is not a fashionable resort, j There is no orches'ra at the hotel, & ' dress suit would be a curiosity, and J "dressing for dinner" simply means j jumping out of the boat, pulling off your rubber boots, donuing your shoes, wash iDgjour hands and face and takiog a dab at your hair with the brush aud comb. Wearing a coat at the table de pends altogether on the state of the weather. It was hot here todav. The average angler who writes and tells of his fishing trip luves to talk about ' my guide." Nothing doing in the guide lie down here. "Well, wbere's a good place, John?" is the questioi. the angler aske. "O, just row down the lake anil drop over close to some of the brush ifjou want to fish for croppio," answers mine host. "Any bass?" "Yes, if you want to cast for 'em over there in the lilypads." That is the extent of the guide busi ness at this rural resort. And you do your own rowiug, accumulating blisters and an appetite that are truly marvel ous. That's half the fun of fuelling, anyhow, for a man of sedentary habits who often wonders if he is going to fall a victim to dyspepsia, and whose manual labor is confined to hammering the kejs of a typewriter or grinding away with the stub of a lead pencil. Big Lake is not so awfully big, meas ured by the standard of Mill Lac, Miu uetonka, Lake of the Woods and Devils Lake. But it is a very sizeable lake as lakes go in tbi3 central western section, being about four miles long and between a quarter aud a half mile wide Form erly the Missouri river ran where the lake now is, but a good many yearB ago that erratic stream wandered a few miles westward and cut a new channel, leaving the old bed dry. Gradually it filled up with water that seeped through the soil from the river, and today it is a lake of beautifully clear and cool water. Twenty-five ears ago the writer fished in Big Lake, and caught fish galore. And scarcely a year passed in all that quarter of a century that he has not "wet a line" in its water. O, but it's good to get away from the grind, even for one day, and float upon the bosom of a clear lake, watching al ternately the cork und the fleecy clouds di if ting across the sky, and breathing deep of the air that is untainted by the smell of coal smoke; listening to the boom of th fiogs, the singing of the birds and waiting for the bites that seud a thrill through the, blood of the inveterate fisherman. All the way down on the train the ex pectant angler thought of the copious draughts of fresh country buttermilk he would have when he reached Iden's place. After a walk of two miles down a country lane, and reachinu the farm house hotel on the lake shore about two hours after the usual supper time, the angler's first words were: "Churn today?" Did you churn today, ma?" shouted Ideu. "Yes: why?" came the reply from the sitting room "Will's here and wants some butter miik." Then Mrs. Iden came to the door with a sad look on her face and said: "I wish you had told us you were coming. We threw all the buttermilk to the pigs." Whereupon the expectant angler walked out into the night and held com muuion with the stars. Let silence like a pall drop over the unspeakable Ecene. Ever hear the storj- of the man noted for bis profanity? He was hauling a load of apples to town, and when half way up a steep hill the endgate of his wagon came out. Neighbors who saw the accident flocked to bear what he would say. Gazing ruefully at the scat tered apples the man remarked in a choked voice: "Friends I have no language equal to the occasion." The best we could do was to envy the happy lot of John Iden's pigs. To bed at 9 o'clock, tired and happy. No noisy motor car rushing by the house with clang of gong and whir of motor. No noisy whistle from the rail road yards. No night hawk's wagon, steel tired, rumbling over the streets. Nothing but the chirp of crickets, the croaking of the frogs and the occasional hoot of an owl in the near-by woods. What wonder, then, that the tired worker who yearned for the sleep that refused to come when at home, dropped off to slumber like a tired child, and felt when John hammered on the door at o'clock next morning that something was wrong with the clock.

The Exclusive Store Carpets, Rugs and Draperies. call the expectant angler was in his boat and rowing down to the brush piles and lillypads. "Breakfast'll be ready at 7:30." cried John. "All right, but don't wait." It was nearly 8 o'clock when the ang ler beached his boat in front of ihe farm house hotel. A hasty wssh aud then breakfast. Now, for a man whose usual breakfast is a piece of dry toast and a cup ot cotlee, or a couple of pancakes with coffee, what do you think of a breakfast of fried fish, crisp bacon, three 8gs "sunny side up," thick slabs of breau generously covered with fresh country butter, two cups of coffee and a couple of wheat cakes floated in real maple syrup? Pilled with all these good things, and likewise a fear of results, the angler hiked again to the boat and was once more offor the brush piles and the lily pads. Back to dinner at 1, then off again to new Ashing grounds with an afternoon under the clear sky, with, the cool breezes wandering by and the fish biting most satisfactorily. O, it was great fun. The cobwebs dis appeared from the brain, the lungs filled up with fresh air, the blood went pound ing through the veins with renewed vigor, and every care was forgotten in the tense excitement of the glorious sport and surroundings. Buck to the farm house hotel in the twilight, and hearty supper of bass not more than an hour out of the water, a long pull at the favorite pipe on the big front porch that looks out over the lake, and then to bed to drop off to sleep before the head hsd hardly made a dent in the pillow. What if one did have to chase back to the daily grind on the early morning train? The memory of the onedav would cheer many days of ceaseless work and worry. The chat with old friends of dayB long gono, the companionship for a few hours of the "kid" brother who hasgirls of his own who are budding into woman hood, the renewed acquaintance with old scenes it was worth double thecost, aye many, many times the cost. "Right over there by that bunch of liljpads I got a five pound bass last week," cried Jim Bunker, who was row ing by. So over you go, drop anchor and begin castiug at the lilypads. Nothing doing. You move over a few rods and cast ngain. Nothing doing. Again There! Who can describe the Gerce strike of the black bass?

The angler j comes up standing, thumb on the reel, ai.d oo the lice to see that old Mr. Bass does not get into the pads and: foul the iine beyond all hope of recovery. Splash! There, he broke water, his gleaming sides quivering with rnge as he strikes to shake the hook from his moutn. Down to the bottom he goes and it takes a quick turn and a wide sweep o? the rod to keep the line from fouling under the boat. There ho goes, and the reel fairly hums. Now he rests, and slowly you toll him along with the reel, careful to keep the line taut but ready to lot it go the minute ho starts to pull away. Back and forth, in and out, up and down so the contest goes on until at last Mr. Bass comes slowly to the side of the boat. Then you shift the rod to the otherhand, stoop and reach for thi? landing net and swish, away he goes again and the con test is on once more. But finally you get the net under him and a moment later he is flopping in the bottom of the boat. Four pounds if an ounce. "Told you yourd get 'em over there," grinned Jim, when you landed at the house in the evening. Yes, the oca catch was worth the trip. But beside that one you caught some others, not so large but still capable of putting up a good fight. And crappie and pike and an occasional channel cat and oodles of "shiners" that are abso lutely worthless, even as fertilizer. Only one day, but it was a day that shook off a dozen of tho accumulated years, and sent the angler back to work feeling fit and fine. A man simply can not afford to not lay off for at least aday now and then, and spend it in the woods or on the water far from tho madding crowd. So here's to the one day off, and may the time soon come when every toiler will be able to take at least the one day with out knowing that the loss of the one day's wage means privation for months.
