Mich., July 20 Special correspondence Whtle at Old Mission your correspondent accepted nu invita tion to jM the Saint Aloan's school eu tu ner camp on a flshiDg excursion of three lays. There mere ia i he party the mas ter.Mr. Notes, eight boys and myself. We went by steamer to :k Rapids, sev en miles acrots the bay, taking two boats and tent and necessary provisions. At Elk Rapids we secured a guide with ttnother boat, and after a bard row of l ight miles across Elk lake egainst head tvind and high sea, we landed at Squac f.teeck Point just at nightfall, tired, wet f.nd hungry, pitched the tent, cooked (upper, and took a swim and attempted to sleep, with millions of mosquitots all (bout us. Ahead mask partially pro tected your corresponient, but the rest of the party, including the guide, cave it up, t30k to the boats and parsed tbe niff,ht as test they could, on the water, getting out t) fish at 4 o'clock with txcellent success, bringing in plen'y of pickerel and bass fir breakfast Durinp the day we rowed s x miles over Round lake and up Torch aad Rapid rivers for brook trout. Rapid r.ver beimz probably the only place in tbe world where one can tish for brook trout from a boat. Returning at dark. supper was cooked and eaten with hearty relish, and after a refreshing swim 10 weary people were stretched on tbe ground under the tent, wooing sleep. The mosquitoes did not trouble us. and we keDt perfectly dry even during tbe heavy rain out at 4 o'clock for fish of which there seemed to be no limit and the perty took home as trophies about 75 pounds of fine bass and pickerel, having cooked probably as many more. All were sotry to go home. but the time was up as the bovs were obliged to get back for regular study. Lit Kapids is a place of 1.500 people, a great resort for fishermen, and has a 1-ge flouring mill, lumber mills, wood alcohol, and iron smelting works. The firm running all these has an immense store where every thing is sold that can be called for, from fish hooks to laces. the annual sales amounting to $300,000. A chain of lakes extends miles. Wild raspberries and huckleberries are found by the acre in any quantity. On Sunday at Old Mission we had di vine service atd a sermon by Dr. Leffing will under the trees near his cottage, about 60 being present, including some ch )ir boys from tbe parish in Ann Arbor. At organ and full musical service made the day seem very Sunday like. On Friday, the 17th, we left Old Mis sion at So'clock with fair wind, arriving at Charlevoix at 1 o'clock. This place is quite a summer resort for people from all over the country. It has a harbor com pletely land locked called Sound Lake vety deep and capacious, and tbe town is built around tbe lake; leading out of Roand lake is Pine lake, very deep and of .jreat extent. Just in the suburbs of the town, on Pine lake, are the two re sorts for summer visitors, known as the Ch cago resort and the Cnarlevoix resirt each having a fine hotel and many cottages. Sail and steamboats are pi Ting in all direc tions, at all hours, and everything is g? with life- We find manv old friends here. and make mny nea ones, and the yacht is visited and inspected by many people. We are laid up for several days for some necessary repairs, and in the meantime are enjoying the pleasures oS the place and the climate, though it is cool for the Illinois season. Last night at 9 o'clock the murcury indicated 54 degrees, and at S tt is morning 57 degrees. Oreen peas are in their prime; also roses and otber Covers. Wild raspberries are everywhere delicious, while fish and lake trout lust from tbe nets, and eyervbody is pleasant and glad to see you. Yesterday we at tended and assisted in divine worship. Bishop Gillespy.of Western Michigan hav ing bis summer cottage on the Charlevoix rescrt. I find one lady with seven chil dren here waom I had the pleasure of marrying some 20 years ago, in Illinois. The yacht lies high and dry on the ways, but we eat SBd sleep ia her as though she weje still resting on the bosom of the lake. The good doctor is an "awfully goo 1 host, and one can never wearv of his hospitality. We expect to get -ff for Macsinac by Wednesday. R. F. s. The Talk About iht Rtell Om-!l- paslns of tiir sjtoek The Unpopular Action nf the Sou'h Itoek l'oniinti)ien r. The Davenport Tribune after copying what The Argus said last night relative to the pofsibility of th street railway syndicate disposing of its interests in ibe three cities, adds: Mr. Louderbacfe was seen last nieht by a Tribune reporter and in reference to the above staled that there was such a deal beirg considered and that for bia part he hoped it would succeed. Dr. Allen, when asked aoout it. would say nothing, nut laughed in a pleased sort of away. The syndicate has done a great deal for Davenport since it bought the old street car lines. The sale of the horses owned by the Tri-city railway company, and thrown out of a j ob by tbe introduction of elec tricity on the lines of tbe company in the tri cities, was opened yesterday at Lor- toa Bros', stables on East Third street. A crowd o' several hundred men, some of them fine judges of horseflesh and competent critics of fine points, attended the sale. The animals shown were in general good condi ion, and most of them were really excellent horses for common purposes, and they were well broken, and, in the main, free from un pleasant habits of biting, striking, kick- ng, shying at newspapers and tbe like. Still tbe bidding was rather moderate, and most of the sales were made at very moderate figures. It is safe to say that the company sold almost every animal for less money than it paid tor the same one a year or so ago. A number, of gentle men from other cities attended the sale, and several purchases were made by tbem. The highway commissioners of South Rock Island are receiving no end of un favorable comment as a result of their arbitrary attitude toward the Rock Island & Milan road regarding the changing of the tower road, and the Davenport Democrat for instance, says: "The increase in the value of the taxable property of the township would soon overbalance the sum expended oa that highway. It is such littleness as this that drives capital away from tbe three cities, and gives them an unpleasant reputation with the money centers." Rock Island however, has enjoyed a reputation not characteris tic of either Moiine or Davenport fr fai: ness and liberality with the syndicate, and this city is in no way to blame for the niggardly policy of the commissioners cf South Rock Island township. lavenpirtK Kail Club Diban t. It seems to be rather up bill sledJing to make a ball club pay in Davenport. The Davenports sulered defeat at the hands of Citumwa yesterday b" a score of-4 to d, t!,en passed out ol existence. At a mee ing of representatives of the Iowa and Illinois league, at tbe Kimbail house last eight it was decided to drop Davin port and to form a 6 club league with i 6cbeiule. This decision had practically oeec maae wnen the rs:M train arnvea with J. D. Matteer of Cedar Rapids, who mad a no objection to the arrangement on tbe part of tbe club of that city. So the Quitcy club scheduled in Davenport for the next three days. which arrived oa the same train as Mr. Matteer, was sent back to Joliet -and plays there today. By the time that tbe league has played out tbe teries of games that begin today tbe schedule will have been made out. Tbe six clubs, it is understood, have all put up a cash guarantee to play tbe season out. The Davenport club was practically outcf the league before last night's meet ing. Part of the players bad been paid off atid left tbe city.and some are mourned by landlords and others. Sa;;e, Rock Island's player, will proba bly not sign for tbe remainder of the season, but m xt year will take an impor tant part in the formation of a duo in which Rock Island and Moiine shall be joimlyi nterested and whica will pay rozzonis Compexion Powder pro duce( a sr.ft and beautiful tkin:itcom bines every element of beauty and purity Lots for Sals la Huher & Peetz' addition to the ctt7 of Rock Island, being the late Bailey Dav enport's homestead, nicely and centrally located, within five blocks of the post office.
