Tae brill Ice Was Oaaag His War aaa e Made rast I lb 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 rent The ret of the Journey was de void of special Interest THE SHOWMAN.
