No party fears an element in its ranks which it can rely on through thick and,thin, in., bad work as, well, as good. To-day you are put .to.a test. It is with no. little show of complacency that Logansport traveling men tell their friends, that the next-annual State convention of the T. P. A. will he held in. this city. Logansport 'drummers 1 ' are- hustlers and wide awake citizens who never .lose sight of the interests' ot their own town. Logansport was also remembered in the new list of officers of the State Post,•both elective anc .appointive. While losing the President it gets in the person of smiling, genial, accommodating Harry Elliott, : a vice-president who is all right. Long live Post F. JUike Cicotc and BIu Flnli. The suggestion made by tlae Journal a few days ago that some one interested in the matter take some steps toward stocking Lake Cicott with bass or other good fish caught Major McFadtn's eye and yesterday he expressed his views on the matter to a Journal reporter. "Big fish will not grow or thrive in Lake Cicott," said the Major, 'it has been tried any number of times, but never with success." The Major then fell into a reminiscent mood and he- gan to drag .out incidents of the past. "Fifty yearg ago," said he, "old father Shaw made an unsuccessful <it- empt to stock the lake with pike and bass, but they would not grow. Many times since efforts have been made in that direction but with no greater success. Large edible fish will not grow there. There is -a peculiar alkaline quality about the' water that kills them off and the lake is given over to the mud cat, turtles, frogs and goggle-eyes." Of the peculiar physical conditions of the lake, its great depth, the absence of outlet or inlet and the high banks surrounding it the Major has fixed views. Said he "LakeCieott is but the crater of a long extinct volcano and the ^alkalies on the bottom impart to the water a quality which, the less hardy fish cannot withstand. "Another thing," said the Major, "is the extremely high temperature the water of the lake attains in the summer. Frequently the water becomes so hot in the warmer summers that it is impossible to hold one's hand in it, and little fish, frogs, and turtles by the thousand are cast to the shore, dead and all but boiled. Talk then of stocking the lake with bass or pike. I tell you it can't be done. "There is another peculiarity about this lake which all older residents down there have observed and that is its. septenial rise and fall—the ebb and flow you may call it. I have intimately observed this pretty little lake for the past fifty years and I know what I am talking about. I assisted in the burial of two Indians down there over fifty years ago—they were nearly related to my lamented, friend Aubenaubee—and no one has a greater love for the limped lakelet than I, therefore my observations of its peculiarities are close and accurate. For seven years the waters of the lake rise, until at their highest they overflow the east bank and have at times cut a channel_into Crooked creek, then for seven years recede until not more than •half its former shining surface is'pre- sented. This is a well known fact, yet has never received a logical scientific explanation. You will remember that at one of our Mexican veterans picnics there a few years ago the lake was so high that . it jovered the woodland road clear up to old' man Burk's cottage in the grove, yet two summers ago the waters were so low that the boat houses and ice chutes were left high and dry. The banks are again filling however and this summer the lake will be a very pleasant breadth jusiVight for pleasure parties who love to pluck the beautiful lillies which dot the surface of .the lake in season. These.lillies, by the way, arc the finest water lillies grown any place in the west and are in .great demand every summer. They will be in beautiful bloom at the time of the Vets. picnic down there the 8th of June." Major McFadin'must be accepted as authority on anything pertaining to Lake Cicott and his views above noted are worthy of pasting in your hat. Election Inspectors.
