Here is the telegram tlmt caused
the whole trip:
Survey lint 22
T. Y. PA1.JIEB.
The ea-e with which those few
words could be written was in sharp
contrast to the labor involved in car
rying out the directions.
The first requisite for such an ex
pedition was a surveyor. He was
secured. Then a couple of chain
bearers, of which I was one. There
was no use in getting clethin: in
Detroit, The outfit necessary for
wrestling with the arctic climate had
to be purchased further north.
The train brought us to Cadillac.
Here tho lumberman's outfit was
procured. It may astonish those
who live in tho effeminate regions of
civilization to know that those who
tramp the north woods wear no over
coats. They drag in the snow and
are in the way. Here was the fit-out.
1 roin four to ten pairs of socks.
Tin ulside pair was a German sock
a quarter of an inch thick reaching
nearly to tho knee. Into this tho
legs of the pantaloons were shoved
and the whole arrangement securely
strapped to prevent snow from pene
trating. We offered as high as S10 a
pair for snow-shoes, but they were
not to be had. Iustead were a gigan
tic pair of arctic overshoes so heavy
that when they once got the swing
on a person's feet it was almost im
possible to stop them. A person was
carried along like that man with the
steam cork leg. Coats and vests
were discarded and blanket suits
Three Mackinaw shirts encased us i
and round the center of
liter of the grand
tied a flaming red

were striped red, yellow and black.
Stirring, who is slightly under seven '
feet high, looked like an animated:
barber pole searching for a hair-cut-'
nug estaunsument. Altogether wo

and fulled Mackinaw cap. Ion could I Now about our work. The first
pull the fulled cap dowu over your; thing to do was to find the "square
Bhoulders almost, aud the thirty de-j stake." This is the stake that marks
grees below zero never fulled with the junction of four sections of land,
your ears while that fulled cap was it was pat in by the government years
over them. Some cynics may doubt ago. Four trees were selected as wit
that any cap could covi'r our carsjness trees. Thev were marked B T

a team and sleigh We drove miles situated somewhat in this fashioV
im.u wiu wuuua, uiiu. jJiiascu iwu Juui
ber camps. At last we pulled up at
Camp Flanigan. At this spot a
couple of weeks ago there was naught
but a howling forest Now Camp F.
consists of five great shanties made
out of logs that wero standing a fort
night since; now they lie low, and
none so poor to do them reverence.
The cabins were the cook house,
tho men's shanty, tho office, the
blacksmith's shop and tho stables.
Our headquarters were in the office.
Flanigan's Camp is M 22 7. There
be those who don't understand this
S. T. 1860 X designation. It means
that the camp is located in section 14,
of township 22, north of range 7 west
Now you know just where it is.
While we made our fastidious toilet
in the office there came a terrific and
long-drawn out blast like a schooner's
fog horn. We rushed out to see if a
schooner were running into ns and
found a six-foot man in the door of
the cook's house blowing a six-foot
tin horn. Gabriel's trumpet could
not have had a more startling effect
at least, out mere it couldn't When
Roderick Dhu's whistle sounded
shrill there came from everv bush and
hill clansmen stern and that sort of
thing, but here from behind everv
pine tree there seemed to start out a
lumberman, and each lumberman was
a living chromo no two of the samo
stripe. What a scene it would have
made on the stage of a theater in an
opera bouffe! Tho men went to their
cabin and washed and combed. Ev
ery man smoothed himself up. There
were seventy of them, and, as our din
ner costume was the same as theirs,
we attracted no attention among the
crowd. The men were mostlv Nor
wegians. Swedes, Canadians, half
breed Indians and a few Irish. At
the long pine table each man had his
piate ana uis place. ine men were
served by the cook aud a counle of
uoys called cnore boys.
ouirnug uuncu a uoy aim saitt:
"Bill of fare, please?1'
'Ain't got none of that"
VWell, bring me a napkin."
"Ain't got none of tint, either."
"All right; bring me what von have
The table was bare pine. There
were crockery plates, iron knives and
forks and a pint tin pan to drink out
The spread was simply sumptuous
and the north woods furnishes you a
beautiful appetite to do justice to it
There was lots of Chicago beef stew
ed and boiled potatoes with their
jackets on. Then there was meat pie
with delicious crust Fried sauer
kraut was good and in great demand.
The bread was excellent and as while
as possible, and was supplemented by
the lightest of biscuits. Both bread
and biscuit were sweetened with su-
Pork and beans were plentiful
the intcrcfitini: eeremouv w:is
rounded off with stowed apples and
mince pic. There wa tea 5mt no
milk or butter.
There was no time lost over the
nifil. xVfter dinner thtMneii went into
th-:r cabin for half an hours suuAe
and then to the woods again, aud the
lively camp was silent once more.
There they worked nt making roads,
building skids and felling tree until
Now as to the cabins.
The cook house contained two great
ranges of the most modern pattern.
There were barrels of Hour aud all
the furnishings of a general grocery
store -a whdlcsale store at tint. In
a box four feet square was the day's
setting of bread, requiring about a
barrel of Hour every lay. The men
are fond of' bread anil eat a great deal
The meu's shanty was like a French
man's farm, great length and small
width. A big box stovo kept it warm,
and the stove and most of tho pipe
were red-hot, consuming piue worth
SO a thousand.
Two tiers of berths ran the Ifiigth
of the building, and two men occu
pied each berth. The bed consisted
of several layers of marsh hay and
ail tue blaukeLs required. Here at
night the men amused themselves
j telling stories or dancing to the music
oi a name, it is found that any game
oi cuanco causes quarreling, so all
such gamfc are prohibited. On Sun
day tho morning service is meuding
cioiucs and tue ntternoon service cut
In tho office rubbers, matches, aud,
in fact, all the men want, are sold.
The cutting of trees is no longer
uone wiin an ax. A cut is made on
tho sido that the tree is intended to
fall, and from tho other side a couple
of men cut in with a saw. In the
woods aro heard the eries iu all dia
lects, "Stand clo-e-e-ar."
Sometimes an answeriu' erv w
heard, "Which way?" (No reference
to Ingersoll's lecture.)
The direction is shou
The direction is shouted back. Then
comes the call:

-lwo woodsmen with axes went
anead and cleared obtrusive branches
and underbrush. Then came the sur
veyor. After came Starring and mv
self like slaves bearing our chains
or rather the chains of the surveyor.
Starting with tho square stake, Star
ring put the end of tho chain on the
end of the stake and I sloshed
through the snow till the chain was
straightened out. Then Starring
I would then thrust an iron pin
down at my end of the chain and re
We would tramp along the next
cbam length and repeat the process.
During the two mile tramp through
tho woods the following interesting
dialogue took place between Starring
"Stuck." ' f
The rest of the conversation was
private and of no interest to the gen
The ground was hill aud swamp
bometunes the snow prevented the
swamp from freezing and several
times Starring experimented to find
out the depth. It was sometimes up
to his shoulders. These swamns are
awfully deep. Once I thought I had
lost starring but I congratulated my
self too soon. We came to a windfall.
The wind had slashed trees down in
discriminately and with a reckless
disregard to the comfort of ex
plorers. "I can never climb that," I said.
It seemed an impassable wall of
snow and branches nnd tree trunks.
"Oh, that's easy enough," said he,
and he climbed succssfully to the
top, showerinc snow in all directions.
Unfortnnntely, Starring stepped on a
log tnat wasn't -there and down he
went, for the first time clean out of
sight I clambered up and on get
ting to the top fonud him just appear-
ing between the tree trunks.
"I thought there was a northwest
passage down there and dropped
down to sec. There is no use in you
going down. All roads are blocked
Notwithstanding this excclleut ad
vice I went down a few steps further
on. It was very exciting. A little
tiresome, perhaps, but most inter
esting. The trip sscross some lakes in a
blinding snowstorm was an episode.
They make a road for hauling logs
across the lakes in this way Tho
snow is scraped off so that the ice
will freeze thick. Theu they go over
this with a spriukliug cart and the
water freezes on top while it is also
freezing below. This makes a strong
ice road that will bear up any load.
In the wilds we met a lone man on
snow shoes. He was a land looker.
He had come all the way from Mar
quette through the trackless forest.
He hunted out laud that wa3 over
looked or of whose value the owuer
had no idea. This laud he bought
and refold. Not long before ho
had picked up 1G0 acres of govern
ment land at Si an acre, and had sold
it so as to clear 7,000. He was a
keen judge of pine, and he was an en
cyclopedia on snow shoes. Ho knew
all about the mineral and topograph
ical features of the countrv. and all
about the habits of birds and beasts
in that wilderness. When we told
him the particular square stake that
we were going to find miles away he
told us just in what position "that
stake was, that a hemlock was one
bearing tree and a birch another.
We fouud it just as ho said. He car
ried what is called a half axe with
him and at night built a fire and
chopped hemlock boughs for a bed.
It is said that no one can catoh a cold
who sleeps on hemlock boughs. They
seem to exude a sort of moisture
sweat the woodsmen call it that
keeps you warm and comfortable.
The land looker carried a compass
aud made his way like a mariner over
the seas.- -Told by thf f'liain
