EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
The Adventures of Marquette
 We cannot record this friendly reception without emotion. How beautiful is peace! How different would the history of this world have been but for man's inhumanity to man. On reaching their boats the little band of voyagers continued their journeying down the lonely and silent river. They floated beyond the mouths of the turbid Missouri and the beautiful Ohio. Carefully they observed these important points, but they made no attempt to explore either of these streams. The Ohio was then and for some years after, called the Wabash.
 Still they floated on, several miles further, until they reached the mouth of the Arkansas. Here again they found a large Indian village. They were received by the natives with the same hospitality which had marked their intercourse with the Indians during the whole of their route.
 They now turned back and laboriously rescinded the majestic Mississippi, slowly forcing their way against the swift current. Their upward voyage was commenced the 17th of July, 1673. Instead of continuing their upward course to the Wisconsin river, they entered the Illinois river, and again reached Green Bay by way of Lake Michigan. They had been about two months upon this voyage. During this time the devoted missionary had lost no opportunity of proclaiming to the Indians the Christian's God, and the way of salvation through faith in an atoning Savior.
