and October such abundant quantities j
of dead water fowl are found every I
morning below the fall, on the shore, j

time live chiefly upon them; besides
the fowl they find also several sorts

that in October or thereabouts such

came off the birds killed at this fall.
I asked the French if this was true.
They told me they had never seen
such a thing; but that if the feathers
were picked off the dead birds, there
might be such a quantity."
Toward the close of the eighteenth
century, Isaac eld, Jr.. made the
following observations: "Having
reached the margin of the river, we
proceeded toward the great fall, along
the strand, which for a considerable
part of the way thither consists of
horizontal beds of limestone rock, cov
ered with gravel, except, indeed,
where great piles of stones have fallen
from the sides of the cliff. These
horizontal beds of rock, in some
places extend very far into the river.
forming points which break the force
of the current, and occasion strong
eddies along particular parts of the
shore. Here great numbers of the
bodies of fishes, squirrels, foxes- and
various other animals, that, unable to
tern the current of theriver above
the falls, have been carried down
them and consequently killed, are
washed up. The shore Is likewise
found strewed with trees, and large
pieces of timber, that have been
swept away from the sawmills above
the falls and carried down the preci precipice.

shattered, and the carcasses of all
the large animals, particularly of large
fishes, are found very much bruised.
A dreadful stench arises from the
quantity of putrid matter lying on the
shore, and numbreless birds of prey,
attracted by it, are always seen hover hovering
ing hovering about the places.
These "wild bears" might hare been
car-marked settlers' swine run wild,
a fact of which DeWitt Clinton did
not apparently take cognizance when
he penned the following remarks:
"This island (Goat) was formerly the j
place where eagles erected their j
aeries, as well on account of its seclu-
sion, as its propinquity to the car- j
casses below the falls. Some years i
ago a large deer was seen for two or
three weeks wading a short distance ;
into the rapids from this island, and
retreating. He had been drifted down j
from above, and not knowing the safe
passage to the shore, he no doubt was
carried over the falls. Volley says
that he found at the bottom of th
precipice the carcasses of some deer, ;

speaking with his wife, for
after the dance she was
whisked nway. leaving him
nothing but tbe memory of au adoring,
blissful glance as she passed. With
Runnels and Cortlandt and the rest he
was driven to tbe Hotel Central, where
they found a very attractive table set
in a private dining room. It was a
lively party, and Kirk's secret elutiou
enabled him to play the p;ni r bosi
with unforced geniality. The others
joined him in a hearty effort to show
their guest the high regard iu which
they held him. and if Cortlandt did

him from noticing. If be bad been

speech, explaining that he and his

were deeply grateful for it. They now
tendered him a token of their regard
in a form which be could preserve.
He banded a handsome loving cup
to Cortlandt. who thanked him appro appropriately,

Tbe object of tiese remarks shot a

check him. But Kirk ran on unheed unheeding:

you. but he's been just like one of my
own people, and if 1 ever succeed in
doing anything really 'worth while it
will be due to the start he gave me."
Though the words were common commonplace
place commonplace enough, they carried a sincere
message, and Cortlandt saw by the
faces about him that tbe others were
pleased. His own gaunt features
turned more sallow than ever. The
memory of what he had heard on the
porch of his own house a few after afternoons
noons afternoons ago. of what he had seen at
other times, of his wife's telltale be behavior

over him. fanning anew the sullen

speaking directly to him. "It Isn't

and I hope it will have some sort of

a plush case and took from It a very
