CouneftlnK Lake Erie, liak* Ifllehl- fmm and lUe Gnlf or IHt-rleo There has been much talk recently of a ship canal to join Like Erlo and Lake Michigan. The project 18 said to bo backed by capitalists who will Invest |GO 000. OCO in It. There is no question but that uuch a oanul will be built Home day, but tbe route now p-opoaed ncrobs lower Michigan U claimed to bt laiprsctlcftble. Prof. J. L. Campbell, who madea government survey of India' a, is of lbi« opinion. As to a ship canal from Lake Michigan to the ocean I have examined with some cure, ho Bays, tho proposed rout' across southern Michigan, and I believe it to bo Impracticable Tne elevation of tho central part of south ern Michigan above ibo lakes la from four hundred to five hundred feet, and there are no streams of water large enough to furuleb aufflolent water for a ship canal at ihe summit levels. In he paper I read beforo the Indiana Engineering Society January 8, 1894. I suggested a practicable route for a tfhlp cunal from Luke Michigan to tho Waba-bh river, which I Ijfllievo will apply to the present discussion. The route I would proposo to connect Luke EMo with Lake Michigan begins at Toledo and extends along the lino of tho old Wabash & Erie canal to a point a few mlloi? weal of Lognnsport, thence by the Tippecanoe and Monon to tho Kat4kakee at Dunn 1 * brlrtpo. and from Buiim's bridge to Lake Mlrhtgan. The route has peculiar advantages In tbe abundance of water supply for the summit levels furnished by tho Maumee. the Wab&sh, tho Tippecanoe and tho Kankakee rivers, and the geu. oral topography of tbe country. Fort Wayne Is situated at the lowest point along the summit of the grout ridge through Ohio. Indiana and Michigan which separates tho waters which run to Lake Erlo and those which flow to the gulf of Mexico. The crest of the ridge Is ehown by tbe following elevation above the sea leve': Wlnrhos'or. Ind ............................................ ',•£!) Portland, Inrt Muffton, u<l Yort Wujne.

"'"' Lake Michigan ................................................ «s The Maumee and Wabath will fu- nish the water supply from Toledo to LoganKport; tbe Tlppecanoo, Monon and Kankakeo from Logansport to Lake Michigan. The distance from Chicago to Toledo by ibis route Is shorter than by any other practicable line. The work 10 be done will be the revival and en. largement of the Wabash & Erlo canal from Toledo to Logansport, and the construction of a new lino to tbe Tlppeoanoe, Kankakee and Lake Mich Igan. Oo this now section no elevation above 750 feet from sea level will bo encountered, and nowhere will the excavation required eiceed one hundred feet In the comprehensive improvement of our means of l transportation this plan will servo tbe double puapo»e of connecting Lake Michigan with Luke Erie and the Gulf of Mexico. The improvement of the Wfaba-h. Ohio and Mississippi would naturalh follow the opening of the canal from Lake Michigan to the Wabash All those lines, especially provided by nature, this great work must be construcled. _ »' i Mlallatte*.

Divis, was born at Albany New York, April 1C. 1811, and died in this city March 1, 1894.- She was married to her late husband at Albany, June 6 1831. and they camo to this city Oct. 31, 1834. Six children —four daughters and two sons—were born to this union, two of whom— Mrs. Arthur Kerlin, of this city, and Mrs. Margaret C Koults o! Ontario, California—survive. The two sons served tbe cauf e of the Union in tbo war of tbe rebellion and Harry, tbe younger, waa killed in battle during the movemeoia of hi* regiment, the 46th Ind. Vol.. around Vloksburg. Charles, tbe eldest son a bridge builder, was killed by falling from a bridge on tbe Wabash railroad. Those allllctloas, together wiih the death of her daughters, the late Mra. Eliza Manders and Mrs. Emm*. Horning, and the bereavement in the loss of her beloved husband were t-ials which severely tested tbe unusual pillonco and serenity of her disposition and fortitude of her Christian faith, but Bho passed the last triumphantly, and turned a ci earful, uncomplaining front to her duties and surroundings. Her pre§enc3 made sunshiuo umld tbe bardnhlp* of plonetr life »n'i In all her relations to her family, her frlende and her neighbors. F. eble beBlib in her later years confined her largely »ci bor home with her daughter, Mr?.
