By H.E. Smith
The Adventures of Marquette
Nearly three hundred and fifty years ago, in April, 1541, De Soto, in his adventurous march, discovered the majestic Mississippi, not far from the southern border of the State of Tennessee.
No white man's eye had ever before beheld that flood, whose banks are now inhabited by busy millions. The Indians informed him  that all the region below consisted of dismal, endless, uninhabitable swamps. De Soto, world-weary and woe-stricken, died upon the banks of the river, and in its fathomless depths his body found burial.
These cruel adventurers, insanely impelled in search of mines of gold, founded no settlements, and left behind them no traces of their passage, save that by their cruelties they had excited the implacable ire of the Indians against the white man. A hundred years of earth's many griefs lingered slowly away, while these vast solitudes were peopled only by wandering Indian tribes whose record must forever remain unknown.
In the year 1641, some French envoys from Canada, seeking to open friendly trade with the Indians for the purchase of furs, penetrated the northwest of our country as far as the Falls of St. Mary, near the outlet of Lake Superior. The most friendly relations existed between these Frenchmen and the Indians, wherever the tribes were encountered. This visit led them to no settlement. The adventurous traders purchased many furs, with which they loaded their birch canoes; established friendly relations with these distant Indians, and greatly extended the region from which furs were brought to their trading posts in Canada.
 Twenty more years passed away, over the silent and gloomy wilderness when, in 1659, a little band of these bold and hardy explorers, in their frail canoes, with Indian guides, paddled along the lonely, forest-fringed shores of Lake Ontario, ascended the Niagara River to the falls, carried their canoes on their shoulders around the rapids, launched them again on Lake Erie, traversed that inland sea over two hundred and fifty miles, entered the magnificent strait, passed through it to Lake St. Clair, crossed that lake, ascended the St. Clair River to Lake Huron, and traversing its whole length, a distance of three hundred miles, reached the Falls of St. Mary.
