THE CHICAGO OP 1825
A VILLAGE WHICH PRESENTED NO
Tho Country Thereabout Offered Few Fea
ture, nail There Wm NotlihiE Worthy
of Eulogy A Report That railed Com
pletely ns n Prophecy.
The Chicago of nearly 73 roars ago
did not present an inviting nptxxinuicc.
Xko .party of Keating ami Lang lcfj
port ' Wavna in May to discover tho
pourco of tho St. Peter's river. Tho ap
proach to Chicago is thus described in
the account published In 1825:
"Wo m-ro near tho southern extremity
of tho lake. Tho view toward tho north
Tvns boundless, tho cyo meeting nothing
but tho vast cxpanso of wnter which
spread liko n two, its surfaco at that
timo as calm mid unruffled na though it
were a sheet of Ice.
"Our path led us over thoscono of tho
bloody massacre which occurred in 1812,
when tho garrison of Chicago was de
stroyed by tho Pottawatomies. No traces
aro now to bo seen of tho massacre.
4 On tho af terucou of Jnno 5 wo reach
ed Fort Dearborn (Chicago). Fort Dear
born is on tho south Dank, near tho
mouth of tho Chicago river. Tho post nt
Chicago was abandoned n few months
after the party visited it. Its establish
ment liad been found necessary to intimi
date the powerful tribes of Indians
j which still inhabit this part of thoconn-
"We were much disappointed nt tho
appearance of Chicago and its vicinity.
Wo found in it uothiug to Justify tho
great eulogiura lavished upon it by Mr.
Schoolcraft, a late traveler.
"The best comment upon his descrip
tion of tho climato and tho soil Ls the
fact that, with tho most active vigilanco
on tho port "of tho officers. It was impos
sible for tho garrison, coasrsting of 70
to 00 men, to subsist ou tho grain raised
in tho country.
"Tuo appearance of tho country near
Chicago offers but few features. There
is too much uniformity in tho scenery.
Tho extensive water pnvpoct is a wasto
nncheckered by islands and unenlivened
by spreading canvas.
"Tho village presents no thrilling
prospects, as notwithstanding its antiq
alty it consists of but few lrats, inhab
ited, by a miscrabloraco of men, scarcely
equal to tho Inaians, from whom they
are descended. Their log or bark houses
aro low, filthy and disgusting, display
ing not the least trace of comfort.
"Chicago is perhaps ono of tho oldest
settlements in the Indian country. Its
name, derived from tho Pottawatnmlo
language, signifies either 'skunk' or
'wild onion. ' Mention is made of tho
place as having been visited in 1071 by
Perot, who found "Chicgon to bo tho
residenco cf a powerful chief of tho
""As a placo of business it offers no
inducement to tho settler, for the wholo
annual amount of trade ou tho kike did
not exceed the cargoes of five schooners,
even when the garrison received its sup
plies from Mackinaw.
"It is not impossiblo that at somo dis
taut day, when tho banks of tho Illinois
shal1 have been covered with a dense
population and when the low prairies
which extend between that river and
Fort Warno shall havo acquired a popu
lation prepare onate to the produce which
therein yield, Chicago maybecomo one
of the points in direct communication
between tho northern lakes and tho Mis-
"Tho Indians were chiefly Pottawato
mies, but intermixed with Ottowas and
Chippewas. Among many charges
against theso Indians there, is nono more
horrible than the chargo of cannibalism.
This has been denied, but it has been
acknowledged by tho Indians themselves,
and it has been uniformly admitted
by the interpreters and traders who havo
long resided with them.
"It is a common superstition with
them that ho that tastes of the body of
a brave man acquires a part of his ralor.
and if ho can eat of his heart, which by
them is considered cs the seat of all
courage, the share ol bravery which ar
rives from it is still greater.
"Captain Wells is still mentioned as
the bravest white man with whom they
ever met. Ho had almost become ono of
their number and had united himself to
a descendant of Little Turtle.
"At tho commencement of hostilities
between the British and Americans he
sided with his own countrymen, while
the Indians of this vicinity all passed
into tho British service. Wells was
killed. After the action his body was
divided, and his heart was shared, as be
ing tho most certain spell far courage,
and part of it was sent to the rarious
tribes in alliance with the Pottawato
mies, whilo they themselves feasted up
on the rest. " Chicago Times-Herald.
The latest joke at the expense of the
French Society For the Protection of
Animals is to the following effect : A
countryman, armed with an immense
club, presents himself before tho presi
dent of the society and claims the first
prize. He is asked to desert bo the act of
humanity on which he founds the claim:
"I saved the life of a wolf," replies
the countryman. "I might easily liavo
killed him with this bludgeon," aud he
swings his weapon in the nir, to tho im
mense discomfort of tho president,
"But where was this wolf ' inquires
the latter. "Whathad ho done to vouJ"
"He had just dcroured my wife,"
was tho reply.
Tho president reflects an instant and
then says, "My friend, I am of opinion
that you havo been sufficiently reward
