wo Brothers Nearly Dashed Over
a Cataract.
It is now some years since, tliat ac-
■ompanied by my brother, and under
the guidance of an experienced hunter,
I started for three months’ shoot ng in
the Canadian wilds. Our plan was to
travel by canoe to the lower end of
Lake Huron, and then plung'ng into
tlie primeval forest, to make a circuit
tl at would bring us out somewhere on
the St. Lawrence, Never was a pleas-
anter excursion. Those aged woods,
so gray
grim ’n
o grown
young again beneath the affluence of
leaves while every sunlit glade was filled
with flowers, and blossoming vines of
every hue hung as garlands from the
branches, as if the woods were decked
for some h'gh festival. But more pleas­
ant still to the sportsman’s heart was
the abundant game tlie tim'd deer,
which fled at our approach; tlie great
grisly bear, ready to bld us defiance,
and the panther and wolf, lurking
within the coverts: not to speak of the
partridges and bustards, and the brill­
iant small bird«, flashing 1 ke errand
blossoms among the trees. Mean­
while, despite our pleasure, our t me
grew short, and it became necessary to
bend our steps howeward.
We had not traveled far in this new
direct on when we came to tlie banks of
a considerable river flowing across our
route. We had no boat to take us over
it, and Jerome, the glide, search’d dil­
igently beneath the overhanging alder
and hemlock boughs, in case some
might have hidden his canoe there.
But none was to be d scovered. «v-i wo
were ruefully beginning to follow our
guide’s advice, and travel round by the
river’s source—which would involve
some ten or twelve days’ extra journey
—when one of those huge rafts in which
backwoods timber for exportat on is
conveyed down country, c m i in sight.
It was floating slowly along on the al­
most imperceptible current, it« single
large sail giving just sufficient way to
tlie float ing island to allow the enormous
tiller to guide it aright; while tlie smoke
from the half-score shanties scattered
its surface, rising against the deep green
forest, the ever-changing groups of
figures, and the lines of washed clothes
fluttering in the breeze, added to its
picturesque aspect.
As the raft drew near, we perceived
that a canoe was towed astern, and.
hailing the slumberers, we reouested its
use to cross the river, which they readi­
ly accorded. But while the little bark
was being paddled to land a new idea
struck us—we would a«k them to take
us as passengers. Rafting was á mode
of travel entirely new to us, and the
thought of that smooth summer sail was
a great temptation to travelers weary
with plodding through tlie woods. Tlie
needful negotiation wass ion concluded,
and in halt an hour we found ourselves
not only on board the raft, but the
happy possessor of a shanty some six
feet square. Never do I remember any
th'ng more delightful than to sit with n
its shadow, and, as our raft gl d d
noiselesslv along the wn’en ng river, to
watch the"ever-varying sc nery through
which we passed—the dark pine-for­
ests, alternating ’with bright green
oak and birch and sycamore woods:
the swelling hills show ng their
p cturesque outline« spa nst tlie clear
blue sky; and the occasi mal tributary
streams, some dashing down their
waters in silvety Cascades, others bear­
ing on their placid bosoms some sum I
raft, with its tiny shantv and little fam­
ily group, to be linked on to the float­
in: g island.
We found, also, endless interest in
watching the doings of our m oratory
village. The tall, brawny lumlierers in­
dolently lounging about the r easy
duties of trimming the sa 1. taking their
turn in steering and drawing the troll­
ing lines, which rarely failed of fi-h;
while their wives, grave rugged women.
Clad in dark petticoat«, and snow-white

knitting, cooking, wa-hing. or chasing
their rebellious children about the raft,
or else in feeding the cock- and hen-
tiiat stalked among tlie logs. and. with
i wrathful turkey-cock, completed our
ist of passengers. And when n'ght
fi 11, and the frying of fish and eating of
•upper were passed, and jest ar d
laughter had given place to silence and
, -'eep, it was beautiful to hear the voic s
| if tho«e quiet women swell over the
I tarlit river in the long-drawn cad nces
f some old hymn.
For two days we pursue«! our tranquil
I vrivmre through the same svlvan scenery.
our pace
creased, as the current
in strength; and after a time the
river began to break into occasional
rap.ds, over whose rugged ledges wo

lumberers sk II c ir n ing from their

frequent'd spots any contrivance to
lessen the hazards of such descents.
It was the fourth evening of our river
voyage. Supper wa.s past, and the sup-
p r-hvmn sung, and my brother and I
had wrapped ourselves in our blankets,
and fallen asleep on our bear-skin
couches, when we were suddenly awak­
ened by a rude shock, followed by the
surge of broken water. Supposing we
were descend ng a rapid, we lay still for
a moment and listened. But the tur­
moil of water appeared louder than
u«ual. and in another instant there
arose a wild cry tliat made us start to
our feet, followed, ere we could leave
the hut, by many others yet more ter­
rific, and echoed by the shrill screams
of women. Some disaster had evident­
ly occurred; but when we rushed out
upon the raft, the cloudy dark-
de-s preven ed
d stinguish-
ing what it was. while the con-
.us on of voices and the hoarse cries of
the lumberers added to our bewilder­
ment. However, as we hastened across
the logs to learn its meaning, we all
but stepped into the rushing rap'd, ren­
dered v s ble by its pale wr a hs of
foam: and theu the truth flashed upon
us that some violent blow had broken
the huge raft into the number of small
om s of wit ch it had originally been
composed, and that our own portion
had eparated from all the rest, leaving
my brother and me ¡done, for Jerome
slept on another part of the raft. As
soon as we discovered our posit on we
called to announce it to the lumberers,
but, in tho tumult of voices, ours re­
ma ned unheard. Again and again we
repeated onr cries, but with the same
result: while gradually the voices grew
■a nter, proving that the divided por­
tions of the raft w ' ijc already scatter­
ing: and at length all sound ‘ ceased as
they passed entirely out of hearing.
We were men not easily daunt d, but
ours was no pleasant pos' tion, alone in
the darkness among the rapids, which
might at any moment break up the raft
beneath our feet: while of what means
were available to save ourselves, we
knew nothing. There seemed nothing
j left us but patience; and divest
ourselves of our
heavier cloth-
of emergency,
sat awaiting daylight, and
«hat it might disclose. Meanwhile
the waves st 11 foamed around us, as if
the rapid were interminable, and the
raft grated and ground d incessantly
against the rocks. At length, just as
day dawned, revealing, to our aston­
ishment, our raft wedged among »he
rocks near the shore, she gave a sud­
den jerk, and whirling round into the
rap d soon swept down into the smooth
water below.
We had now leisure to look around
us. As we expected, none of the other
rafts were visible, but great was out
disappointment to d'scover that the
river now flowed between sharp, rocky
barks, and tliat if, as we meditated, we
swam ashore to continue our journey
on land, we should be unable to climb
the wall-like barrier. The
y re-
sou co left us, little as we understood
its management, was to reman on
board • the raft and float along at the
will of the current and rapids until

hope of landing b -¡ran to fade; and
when night again fell on our lonelin >ss,
our helplessness, and our ignorance of
what dangers m ght await us on that
unknown river, we felt nigh despair.
Alii.o t to our surprise, the night was
got through safely, and morning saw
our shapeless craft st II floating down
the solitary st earn, with those dark
prec p ces. crowned with p'ne fore-t«,
still frown ng upon us from each side,
and thus- frequently recurring rapids
checkering our course. About noon we
en ered noon the fiercest we had yet en­
counter d. Our tiller w:ts useless
among the breakers, which roared and
raged around the raft
1 grew almost terrified as I noted how
swiftly we sped pa-t the rocks, which
here and there stood up from the waves
j like silent Warners; and yet more wa« I
alarmed when, lo iking ahead. I beheld
the long vista of leaping, surging cas­
cades, down whose troublous course we
l should be driven if the fabric beneath
jour feet still held together.
But back-
woods rafts are made for such encoun-
t r ; fcarlesslv the log-boat plunged
from ledge to ledge. At length a deep,
reverberating roar rose above the
•urround ng tumult. My brother
land I started at th; unexpe-ted
|-outlet; then w ■ looked eagerly forward
and perceived, but a -hurt wav ahead, a
cloud of silvery haze float'ng like a
halo over the surface of the river. It
was the con'irmat on of our newly
awakened fear«, the unerring indication
that a cataract was before u«, and that
we Were nulling at railway spee 1 on a
terr ble and spe dy death.
Never a all I forget the pang o' that
fearf'il discovery: the bitter |.r >«pect of
i dy ng in health and strength, and yield-
j ing up the hope« and a-piratlons of our
ncloudtd youth; the thought of tiled s-
tant home we -hould never see again:
i and the beloved and loving one« soon to
| lie doubly bereaved, and worse than all,
the knowle ge that th • dear brother
I must share our mtiending fate. With
I «warm imoul ■ of frat« rnal 1 >va. we
ciaspeu each otner s nanus an mat re­
mained to us now was to die together.
Meanwhile the d n of the fall swelled to
a thunderous roar that reverberated
through the .surrounding woods; tho
tumultuous rap ds surged into a ficrcet
fury, and urged the raft to a
speed which made her tremble; while
we, her hapless passengers, stood
j . awaiting
.......... „ our ' inevitable doom,
to be swept over that relentless fall, to
be tossed in that horrible abyss, and
finally east f rth disfigured and bruised,
among the seething eddies of the still
rushing river. It was a fearful inter­
val. Nearer and nearer the raft drew
to the fatal brink nearer and yet
nearer, until vve could almost look into
the dark vo'd beyond.
Her last mo­
ment and ours al ko seemed come, and
in the deep anguish of such a parting
we elung closer to each other.
Suddenly the raft approached another
rock; it was nearer to us as well as
larger than those which had preceded it.
and pre-ented a nr row footing.
Tlmimlii al such m men s is swift s-
I glitning. and action little less so; and
almost ere 1 had seen this ark of hope
my brother bound 'd across the raft,
drawing tne w th him, and with a des­
perate leap, oniy to be ventured in peril
such a-s otirs, sprang over the fathom­
broad space of rushing water, on to the
rock beyond. Another moment and I
too had leaped it; and standing in com­
parative safety on that small but im­
movable refuge, we watched the raft,
whose fate we had so nearly shared,
plunge over the foam ng cataract, to bo
dashed into the deep chasm below.
Still we were girt round by many
dangers. A single si p might d -tach us
from tho rock, a s nglc wave still sweep
us over tho falls; while looking land­
ward, nothing was visible save a few
dark, jutting rocks, around wh'ch the
r ver foamed.
Their wet, slippery
po nts afforded little hope of escape, yet
it was our only one, and therefore must
e tried; and with rigidly braced nerves
mil concentrated energies, we com-
•n nee I our hazardous task of leaping
Tom rook to rock, closing our ears to
tin1 d afening roar, and our eyes to the
hurry ng current over which we passed,

hr High wh'ch we waded to land.
Tne now rugged bank gave easy ac-
■•e <s to the land above; anil a few hours’
travel southward brought us to Lake
VVeno, where, to our surprise, we found
onr companion-rafts in safety, and
learned that we had passed, without ob­
serving. the narrower but safe outlet to
the river furnished by the VVeno creek,
and thus not only missed Jerome and
tho lumberers sent back to aid ns, but
encountered that most fearful incident
of our lives, our escape from tho VVeno

An Old Darky’s Striking Argument In a
(JueNtion of Natural History.
Down in the woods of the Chicka­
mauga battle fields rabbits skurry from
one brush-heap to another, and th
squirrels chatter as they look down from
their perches at men wandering from
point to p >int in the openings. W
were sk rt'ng Snodgrass Hill when w
heard a gun go off, followed by a serie
of yells and whoops. Pushing into th
woods a few rods we came upon an ol
tlarky seated on a log with one pant-le
rolled up. There were four or five tTi.i
streams of blood running down, and
was plain enough that some scattering
shot Iiad struck him.
As we reached him a colored bo.
about sixteen years old came out of th
brush with a light shot-gun in his hands,
anti the old mm looked up and said:
“Julius, look heih! You has dun
shot your ladder in de leg!”
“Why, pap, I dun ’sposed you wa :>
rabbit. I seed sunthin’ movin' in it
brush, an’ I blazed away."
“ ’Zactly, Julius—I correspond. Y<e

hundred and eighty pounds fur a littl
rabbit ’bout a foot long an’ jist ’nitiT to
make soup for one! Julius, Ize gwinc
to show you de difference between a
rabbit an’ your fadder!”
He had be n cutting a green 1 t.ib a«
he talked, and when he finished he took
the boy by tho collar and played the
“bud” to him until the young man
jumped two feet high and sung out 1 k
a brass band. By and by we gently in
terfered to prevent further punishment
and tlie old man held the boy oil' and
“Julius, does you see me?”
“Yes fadder/

For some years tho Government of
<Ves*ern Australia lias oll'ered a reward
of £5,000 for the discover of a payable
gold field within three hundred miles of
a declared port. From recent news
front Perth, it would almost appear that

We learn that Messrs.
Malot and M’ Ewen, who were sent by
the Government to explore the Kimber­
ley district, in the extreme north of the
colony, have returned, after an expedi­
tion which nearly proved disastrous to
the explorers. They lost the r horses;
and having consumed all their provi­
sions, only escaped starvation by coming
unexpectedly to a settler’s hut, whore
they obtained ass'stan: e. The party
arr'ved barefooted, their boots having
fallen to p'eces on the tramp of one
hundred miles. Mr. M’Ewen nearly
succumbed to the hardships of tho jour­
ney. A quantity o? the new gold has
already found its way to England. Ac­
cording to advices from Derby, the port
of the country —named after the pres­
ent Lord Derby, and s tuated at the head
of King’s sound—large numbers of
people, who were totally unfitted for
the work, were starting for the Kim­
berley gold fields. A- the roads are
rough, and provisions scarce and dear,
with an absence of water, it goes with­
out saying that no one need venture in
search of wealth wi boot being supplied
with plenty of money and an ample
supply of provisions. The country is
described as closely resembling the
Peak Down district in Queens-
The _ gold is much scat-
toied, but the guides are numerous,
It is expected that so soon as tho
alluv al gold is worked out. productive
reefs will be laid bare. The Kimberley
distr'et, contrary to what many have
opposed, is a country about four and a
half t mes the size of Scotland,
splendid rivers and with m llions of
;><• es of pa toral and agricultural land.

iludoess That Is Refreshingly Open-
Handed, I nafiTroted and Generous.
In no land is hospitality more open-
landed and more unaffected than in
Norway, aud though these features are
laturally becoming'd along the
leaten lines of travel, tho genuine
joodness of heart, tine “gentlemanly"
eeling and euiire a'isenee of that
■ordidtiess which is often soen even in
irimitive regions can not fa 1 to str ke
in unprejudiced obs Tver. Nor is
itiquette ignored by even the rud. st of
lie people. In the cities the stranger
s apt to make many blunders. In the
¡ountry, however, this is not less
narked, though perhaps the v sit<>r
vill be less conscious of its presence.
)ne of the peculiarities of the Nor-
vegian farmer is tliat, when vis ting a
riend, lie must ignore all the prepar-
itions made for his entertainment. Ho

ality, lie gets up, bids tho fami y good­

lie host would bo thought st ngy.
Vhen milk, brandy or beer is off red.
Im guest invariably begs that t will
mt “be wasted on him." and then after
imp ying the cup declares tliat “it is
....... inch,” going through the samo
ormalitios, it may bo. throe or four
inies. In the farm houses, or upland
‘.«actors," the guest is left to eat alone,
lilvcr forks and spoons being often
lubstituted for the carved wooden ones
isod by the family, and a fine white
•loth for tlie bare board which serves
veil enough on ordinary occasions.
I’o a punctilious guest th's may not bo
i drawback, for at the family table, as,
ndeed, among tho peasants in Scan-
linavia everywhere, the different in-
lividua's dip spoons into tho same
lishes of “grod” and sour milk; but
'or any one desirous of studying a
leople a load of foreign prejudice is a
jrievous bur len to carry about. When
i child is born tlie wife of every noigh-
>or cooks a dish of "llodogrod” (por-
•idge made with cream instead of milk)
md brings it to the convalescent, there
leing a good deal of rivalry among the
