On tllo upper or northern nnd of tht
Wand of Wcstport, nnnlently called
Squain, nnd situated In tho Khccpncot
Ilay on tho Maine coast, stood a large,
square, old fashioned house, built ol
heavy timbers, having ono mnsslvc
brick chltnnoy In tho center. It was
owned nnd Inhabited by n sen-fnrlnR
man by the namo of dough, who sailed
on foreign voyages.
It was In tho time of the Krencli rev
olution, when this captain wns on n
voyage to Franco, that ho was en
gaged by the agents of tho king and
Mnrlo Antoinette to bring them se
curely to America. Their wardrobe
and somo of their furniture was al
ready placed on thu ship, nnd tho king
nnd queen were driven quietly down to
tho quay, whero the phlp's small boat
was In waiting to tako them off to tho
vessel. At tho same moment secret
ngonts of tho revolution arrived Just
In titno to arrest their king and queen
Just as they had alighted from their
carriage. Their majesties wero then
removed to prison. There thoy wero
coon after guillotined.
As Foon as ho found wlint had hap
pened Captnln ('lough put to sea with
all haste, having the wardrobo and the
furniture of the king and queen on
board his ship. After n long vovngo
ho arrived at Wcntport. Mo., safely and
stored tho queen's wardrobo and fur
niture In his own house on Squtun
Island. Tradition says that visitors
to tho house used sometimes to see
these things, and pieces of tho queen's
dresses are still kept by tho Clough
descendants, who live in Kdgceomb,
Just opposite Westport.
On nccount of what I hnve nar
rated above the house came to be called
the "Marie Antoinette House." Quite a
long while after the events I have men
tioned the old house was ferried across
on scow., to tho opposite shore of IMge
comb. and placed high on the bank,
back from tho river's brink, where it
now stands, and Is still Inhabited.
Many photographs have been taken of
It by summer tourists, and tnanv havr
written Its history. Hut what I have
written was told mo by the "oldest In
habitants." who received it as I tell It
from their fathers and mothers.
After tho house WHS mnvnil in Mm
Rdgecomh shore It wns Inhabited by a
man named (lardlner tioro, who kept
n largo storo and was quite wenlthv.
One night an old lady of tho same
town, called "Old Aunt Hood." who
was given to dreaming dreams,
dreamed that tho bungs had till been
pulled out of his molasses hogsheads
and that uho saw tho molasses run out
nil over the lloor, nnd thereupon sho
told her dr:un nnd declared that
"Gard" would soon ho poor, and, In
fact, ho died soon nftcr n poor man.

Many curious customs nre In vogue
mining the foreign population of North
ern .Michigan, especially In social mat
ters, w lien u I'Yench couple get mnr-
rled a carriage or a sleigh ride Is In
evitable, according to the season of the
year. TJie couples are not packed to
gether In one wngon or sleigh, but each
rellow and his girl have an Individual
rig. the bride and bridegroom taking
the lead and the others following like
n funeral procession; but there Is noth
ing funerenl about It, especially the pace
set. After the procession hns been rid
ing for hours a dunce ends the festivi
ties. The Polamleis have n curious wed
ding custom that Is very Ingenious us
a money getter, nnd takes the place of
wedding presents. After the wedding
feast follows a dance that sometimes
lusts twelve to fourteen hours, nnd even
longer. The elder honor Is to dance with
the bride, nnd this Is decided In a curi
ous manner. The mother of the bride
takes her place In one corner with a
plate In her lap, which she takes very
good care shall be built after the plan
of un eating house coffee cup. The gal
lant who wants to dance with the
bride, and all are In honor bound to do
so at least once, must pull out n piece
of silver nnd endeavor to chip or break
the plate by throwing their money up
on It, nnd only those who succeed In
chipping or breaking tho plate are al
lowed the coveted honor. Let those who
think It easy to break nn Ironstone
plate try ft. Pew succeed In doing It
for less than fifty cents, nnd It Is not
nn unusual thing for the bride's money
to amount up to $75 or $100, even where
tho crowd Is nppnrently as poor us a
church mouse, and It may go even high
er when the bride Is pretty nnd popu
lar. All the money goes to the bride,
nnd In a backwoods country $S0 to $75
will start u happy couple nicely In
