EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH

The Adventures of Marquette

 To all this, the good Marquette replied, “I thank you, dear friends, for your kind advice, but I cannot follow it. There are souls there to save for whom the Son of God came to earth and died. Their salvation is at stake. I would joyfully lay down my life if I could guide them to the Savior.”
 They found the navigation of Fox River impeded with many rapids. To surmount these it was necessary often to alight from their canoes and, wading over the rough and sharp stones, to drag them up against the swift current.
 They were within the limits of the present State of Wisconsin and found themselves in a region of lakes, sluggish streams and marshes. There were Indian trails, which had been trodden for uncounted generations, leading West. These they followed, often painfully carrying their canoes and their burdens on their shoulders, for many miles, from water to water, over what the Indians called The Carrying Places.
 At length, they entered a region of remarkable luxuriance, fertility and beauty. There were crystal streams and charming lakes. Magnificent forests were interspersed with broad and green prairies. God seemed to have formed in these remote realms an Eden of surpassing loveliness for the abode of his children. Three tribes, in perfect harmony, occupied the region–the Miami's, Mascoutins, and Kickapoos. There was a large village with abundant cornfields around. River and lake, forest and prairie were alike alive with game.
 To their surprise they found that a French missionary, Father Allouez, had reached this distant spot, preaching the gospel, eight years before. The Indians had received him with fraternal kindness. He had left in the center of the village a cross, the emblem of the crucified Son of God.
 “I found,” Marquette writes, “that these good people had swung skins and belts and bows and arrows on the cross, an offering to the Great Spirit, to thank him because he had taken pity on them during the winter and had given them an abundant chase.”
