; Landlubbers from these parts, who have
onjoyed mldiummer outing on tho Great
Lakes, ran scarcely realize what perils lurk
Iri these land-locked waters, so peaceful are
they In summer time. Occasionally In mid
summer the elements kick up nasty seas,
but they are tike ripples on a mill pond
rompured with the fierce waves rolled up
by storms such a swept Superior, Huron
and Erie a few weeks ago, wrecking scores
pf lake craft and causing the loss of
Kach year from tlte middle of October
until the close of navigation occur on an
average more tragedies than during the
rest of the season. It Is the season when,
for the suke of higher rates, captains and
owners hazard lives and property In mad
races with the last cargoes from the north.
From now on tho scores of men who guard
tho dangerous points between Duluth and
Uuffaln are doubly vigilant. Constant
guard Is kept by life-saving crews. Power
ful lights burn through every hour of the
night, and with the coming of autumn they
burn through most of the hours of the day.
At any minute the 300 watchdogs between
Uie end of Erie and stormy 8upcrlor know
that a tragedy may be literally blown upon
little Ice Devils.
These are the days when the "little Ice
devils" got In their work; when, despite all
efforts, tons upon tons or ioe grow to the
sides of ships, and like so much lead weight
them down to the bottom of the sea. Tn
Superior, the bottom of which Is llled with
deep pits and caverns, a ship that Is drawn
down by the Ice never returns to the sur
face, for down in the black, cold duptha of
the pits the Ice never melrs. Some have
said that If this were so "Superior would
In time become 111 led with Ice," but scien
tific investigations have proved otherwise.
The Ice Is heavy enough to carry a ship
under water, and when once under water
the ship carries the Ice to the bottom.
Otherwise the ice would not sink. Bodies
Bable light all eyes ate strained to rati h a
glimpse of it. But that light, as powerful
as It is, may not be seen a mile away. So,
unwarned of danger, the vessel runs too
close to the dangerous, reef-ridden shore
and Is beaten to pleccB. This is what hap
pened some time ago within a short d.
tance of the most powerful light on the
nkes the Big Sable.
This Is one way In which euperlor claims
its victims. But there Is another way, nnd
a more tcrrlblo o;ie. The day may be clear,
but It Is hitter cold. Waves and spray dash
upon the ship, and ton after ton. ilie llttl
"Ice devils" are formed. Ice clings to the
side of the ship, to the bow und to tho
decks. It Incases the rigging, and though
a doren men work with axes and picks It
accumulates faster than they can cut It
away. Within an hour after the tempera
ture has suddenly changed the rudders of
vessels have become useless. Inch by Inch
the vessel Is flrewn down. It soon grows
unmanageable, and though the crew works
desperately lightening It, it continues to
sink.- Then comes the moment when the
crew must take to the boats, and shortly
after the ship sinks. In the majority of
cases the men are never heard from again,
for the chances of life are small for those
who set out In small boats on wintry Superior.
Such was the fate of the Algoma. and
since the day it went down never a spar
nor a rope of It has come to the top to tell
Huron as a Graveyard.
lAke Huron has long been known as the
grave of the lumber barge and sunken
treasure. While there Is a great deal of
mystery about the ways of Superior, there
Is more of romance about Lake Huron. Not
so many years ago on the shores along
Lake Huron were numerous lumbering
camps, and each month hundreds of thous
ands of dollars were carried Into the camps
by boats. In those days, too, lumber barges
without steam did nearly all of the trafllc.
and hundreds of them lie among the reefs
and shoals of the lake. Millions of dollars
In money have been lost In these wrecks,
and at least three great fortunes In ingot
copper have gone to the bottom there.
There are few ports of shelter along
Huron, and In case of storm a captain
must run before the wrnd or try to get
between the dangerous shoals on the MlcH
lgan side. These shoals, which stretch
from Thunder bay to Saginaw, have tie
manded a sacrifice of scores of ships, and
It was while trying to pass through them
that the ship John Miner went to the bot
torn some time ago. For seven miles off

thriee-fourths of the bodies disappeared for
ever. This year the casualties on Puperlor
have been tremendous, and within recent
weeks two ships have gone to the bottom
there, and only one person of all those
lost has been recovered. With the un
usually high rates paid for the currying of
ore this year, ship captains and owners
are predicting that more vessels 'han ever
before will risk the perils of lake naviga
tion, and consequently more lives will be
Notwithstanding the many tragedies that
occur each year on Lake Superior, Erie has
long been known as the "graveyard of the
Great Lakes." From the day the British
fleet was met there and defeated by the
Americans, Its record has been rising.
Many years ago superstitious sailors re
garded its as possessed of devils, and the
majority of seamen would rise from their
berths and completely dress If they were
passing Point Pelee in the night. Off that
point scores of vessels have gone to their
, joom, and hundreds of lives have been lost.

Strangle Features of Tragedies
In the tragedies of the Great Lakes
many curious and romantic things occur
each year. For Instance, after a fearful
storm, a freighter went to the bottom In
Lake Superior only two or three weeks
ago. At the last moment the crew and
six passengers, five women and one man.
took to the boats. Three boats set out,
and In that fight for life Superior played
another of Its grim jokes. Only the five
women and the two men with them (one
of tho latter a member of the crew) reached
shore In safety.
Once all that Superior gave up to tell
of another tragedy In which it has played
a part was a bloody oar.
The big freighter Bannockburn left Du
luth two years ago with a crew of twenty
two men. From the day It left port it was
never seen again, and never was a body
of one of its crew recovered. What hap
pened to It remains a mystery.

left Duluth. Then It disappeared as coin
