The ingeanity of CapUia Chase of
tae torts K. O. Clark, which arrived at
ratiasieipaia a lew days ago from
QreealaaU. has earned for blm the
proad distinction of beinir the first
aaillag master to make his vessel fast
to aa iceberg and allow it to pall him
toward hia destiaatioa withont a aail
beiair set. The bark sailed from Ivig
tat. a portea the aoathwest coast of
Ureealaad for Philadelphia.
For three days after leaving Ivigtut
ahe was aurroanded on all sides by
aaoaster Icrbcrgx bnt they soon be
came tost to sight ia a dene fog. and
it was thea that the skill of a master
mariner was brought into play and
thoroughly tested. Captain Chae and
hia erew of tea men were kept con
stantly oa the alert and tho vessel
beat to and fn until the fog lifted.
Then the moat dangerous ice was seen
well aitern, and the ship was out of
immediate danger. For six day
afterward huge bergs were in sight,
but far enough away to preclude the
possibility of collision. Ih-ift ice was
sighted having been driven off shore
by a northeast wind. It was drifting
almost in the direct course which the
Clark was endeavoring to pursue.
The vessel was soon oa the outer
edge of an immense field of ice. which
eateaded ia a northeasterly direction,
at far as the eye could reach, with an'
occasional berg reaching high
into the air. On the o.her side was
the clear water. The Hark was soon
caught in the drift, and was so firmly
held in the ice that she was carried
many miles on her course, a line hav
ing been made fast to one of the bergs
to keep her steady. For several days
all hands enjoyed the novel experience
of being towed by an iceberg, but
finally the wind began to change
tba direction of the drift. Then the
rope was cut, the sails were set, and
the veMl freed herself, and in a few
days was clear out of the Arctic car
