INSURE WITH THE
Korwlch Dnlim Fire Inm Society
A. I„ REES, Agent,
Al Btttbtf Smerfewo
On the morning of the I3tlt of
June, our family, and a portion of
Mr. Hines’, set sail Irom McKen-
ney’s Landing, pn Gambol Creek,
near Milcbclville, Fla., fur a cruise
along tbc coast uf tbe Gulf oi
Our voyage was to lie made on
the “Onknhie,” it neat sloop of
about five tons. We felt perfectly
secure ill site.t a safe little cralt
with Captain Billie Stowil at tbe
helm. Captain Slowel, universally
known as “Uncle Billie,’ - Is cele
brated for his genial dispositiun,
good 8eamanship and matchless
Our lirst stop was at Fort nomer,
where we received an addition lo
our party, Pr. Harrison and fam
ily. We now numbered fourteen
souls, three gentlemen, four ladies
and Hie Olliers children.' After we
got under sail again, we skimmed
smoothly along over the bright
waters of the Manatee river for
several hours, entertained by Un
cle Billie’s wonderful sea yarns, lo
which we listened wilb the utmost
degree of satisfaction and delight.
The flrst place of interest wc pass
ed was Braidcn Castle, a large,
picturesque concrete building, al
most bidden by palm trees and ole
anders. It was built before tbe In
dian war, and the lirst owner and
his family were killed by Indians
while at supper.
We passed Elcnton, Manatee,
Palmetto and Brnidcntown with
out stopping. About 3 p. m. wo
landed at Fogartyvilie, lunched
and rested a while, then set sail for
the Keys. A little way from F
artyvilie we passed a pretty little
sloop lying at anchor. Uncle Bil
lie told us its owner committed
suicide a few days before, and it
would have to lay there till some
one was given authority to dispose
The next town wc passed was
Palma Sola. Wo saw two steam
«rs, several schooners, sloops, etc.,
at the wharf and anchored near. A
little below this point wc passed
the wreck of the steamship Dover.
She went to pieces against a hid
den rock in Tampa Bay about a
year ago. Uncle Billie was on
board the Oukaliic cn route for
Tampa, and reached her in timo to
rescue the crew.
We were now out in Tnmpa Bay
and tbe sailing was delightful to
all hut one of the parly, who be
came awfully seasick at this junc
ture, and of course after that ev
erything had a melancholy cast to
her. A little after dark tho keel of
our vessel grated upon the sands
of New Key, about forty miles from
our starting' point. Wo were eager
to get ashore, and after building a
camp Ore tho ladies cooked supper
while tbe men pitched the tent, and
wo got ready for housekeeping.
The children went wild over the
shells and white sea sand, and tbe
older ones were scarcely less en-
thusiastie. After supper we all
went on a chase for sand crabs. It
was royal fun, but wc were tired,
and Boon sought “tiroil nature’s
sweet restorer,” ond wero lulled to
sleep by tho roar of tbe breakers
on Hie shore. Blight and early
next morning we wore up to sec
tho sun rise, and soon had break
fast over, and proceeded to take a
survey of our islnnd.
It is a very small kev, and was
once a part of Long Key, but was
cut ofl from it by the last hurricane.
It is between Long and Anna Maria
Keys, ond ono of our parly sug
gested that wc chiistcu it anew and
call It “Anna Maria's Baby.” I
wish I possessed the gift of elo
quence. I feel that language will
fail me wbeii 1 attempt to describe
tbe scene. To us, who were so un
accustomed to the seaside, it was
like a dream of Paradise. As far
tbe eye could sec the while caps
were chasing each other in mad
monster, measuring ten feet
length. His moulli looked like
vust cavern filled with dangerous
looking teeth. We succeeded
getting a piece of his skin, though
with difficulty, for it was ns roit,
ns a rasp, and almost as thick. V
saw large schools of thorn passing
the island, and they came so near
that it made bathing a little risky.
As often as wc looked toward
the Gulf we saw sails passing at
greater or less distance. We saw
a few ships and steamboats, but
most of them were spongers, fish
ing smacks and sloops.
Nothing of interest happened
till next day at dinner Uncle Bil
lie predicted a “squall,” and the
indications were good. The east
ern sky was black ns night, and not
a breath of air Btirrlng. Tho dis
tant, and almost ceaseless rumble
of thunder sounded like a death
knell to the timid hearted ot our
party. The thunder came nearer
and nearer, and the vivid flashes
of lightning were almost;continual.
Wc began to get everything in or
der, but in less time titan it takes
to tell it, the storm hurst upon us
The wind blow with intense fury
for several minutes. All the pegs
of the tent wero jerked from their
places as if they hrd been so many
straws, and it seems that the wind
would blow it away in spite of all
our efTorts. In a few seconds tbo
rain began to fall in torrents, and
caeh of iib took a position where
the pegs of tho lent bad been. At
first we wera very much frightened,
bat in a short time tho absurdity
of our situation became so appar
ent we could not resist a hearty
laugh. About this timo we dis
covered Undo Billio in trouble.
The Onkalite was about to be
stranded. She had dragged an
chor, and was beating against the
shore with alarming force. One of
tho hien went to tho rescue, and be
and Uncle Billio succredcd ingot-
ting her in deep water again. Af
ter aho was safely anchored they
came back to us; but the worst of
tho storm was over, and in a few
minutes tbe sun was shining as
brightly us if there had never been
a cibudod sky. But oh, how wet
and cold wc were! Wo wont at
once to tho warm salt water, and
after bathing, felt wonderfully re
From this point wc shelled on
Auna Maria aud Long keys. Tho
former extends north ten or twelve
miles, near the mouth of the Mana
tee river, and tho latter south to
Savasota Pass. The men took sev
eral hunts for turtle nests, and
found four or live “crawls” on An
na Maria Key, but no eggs, as sorao
one hall already secured them all;
At this season the coast is
thronged with turtle huntors, and
it is a race to Bee who can get on
the out side beach first in tho
morning, and often tho earliest
ones are disappointed, for they find
the bears or eoons have been be
fore them. Tito turtle usually
rests at night, comes up at high
tide, crawls out and passes up the
beach several feet above ldghcBt
tide mark, deposits its eggs In tbe
sand, after first making a bole
about a foot deep and as largo as a
water bueket. They lay from a
hundred and twenty.flva to a hund
red ard fifty eggs, aud after cover
ing them they deface the soil for
some distance around tho nest so
that it is almost Impossible to Ond
it. The turtle hunter carries a
long stafT very sharp at the point,
ami where be discovers a crawl he
thrusts it in tho groitiid and i( it
reaches a nest, when it is drawn
out', the point will ho covered with
the yolk of the egg.
Marly next morning, which was
Monday, wc set sail for Savasota,
with a fair wind, and anticipated a
pleasant voyage, bnt we bad made

ones that it was liuiu to come

sailed on furiously. Wo gained
the race, however, and landed at
Savasota just as the rain began to
fall on us, and decided to camp
there a day or two. This is a
small village prettily situated on a
blufl over looking Savasota Bay.
Next day, two of the men look the
row-boat and went down to the
clam bar, and returned that p. m.
witli a load ol clams and oysters.
While they were gone they came
dice to face with a huge panther
on the outside beach, but being
unarmed they gavo him a wide
berth and made rapid traoks for the
boat. Uncle Billie made ua a clam
chowder lor supper, that was a
feast lit for the gods.
That night wo had an oyster
roast, down on the beach under
the brow ol tl'u olilf. It was tbe
flrst one iu which any of us had
ever participated, and we all de
cided that oysters were never so
nice as roasted.
Like every thing else, this en
joyment had an end, and we .slept
the sleep ot the just that night,
and left early next morning for
Savasota Key, but on account of
a bead wind, we were unable to
land, so we went on to Big Sava

and turtle “crawls” a while, then
sailed for Bishop's Fishery. - This

etc., have been found here, but It
was not our good fortune to seoure
any such curiosities.
Perched on top of this mound,
are two picturesquo, if not elegant

ed during tho mullet season by a
company of men, who pack large

Our next stopping place was
Passage Key. Nearly all the sea
gulls on the coast go there to lay
their eggs and there was a eloud
of them screaming over our heade

eggs and some shells, and headed
for tbe light house, now plainly

The sky was porfcctly cloudless,
hut tbe wind blew fresh, and tbe
sea, lo us, seamed fearfully rough.
Our little craft rolled so it was al
most impossihio tor us to stand.
In a short while we passed near
the “Lizzie Hendcrsou” lying at
aoohor waiting to exchange pas
sengers with tbo “Alabama,” which
was plainly seen in the distance,
ond looked as if she was going to
run right over us, but really was
long way to the left.
Before many hours we had land
ed at Fogartyvilie, and prepared
camp for tnc night.
Tbe suicide's little vessel, that
wc had seen a few days before,
gallantly riding the wave, was
ying upon its aide on tbe beacb,
where tbe last gale had blown It.

feeling of sadness; it seemed so
