If this opportunity should not be improved, a large amount of interest- ing data concerning Dubois county might be lost. Each chapter is a unit in itself, covering one subject, or one line of thought upon a subject. In the writer's opinion the book should be read as the chapters are numbered, but any one chapter treating of a specific subject may be read without reading: the others.

The recital of the facts in this sketch may have the air of romance, but they are, nevertheless, the plain truth about one whose identity with Dubois county will not be soon forgotten, and " truth is stranger than fic- tion." It certainly portrays the great possibilities of a determined Ameri- can youth, who, soon after he learned Latin, adopted as the motto of his life, aut viam invejiiam, autfaciani — " I shall find a way or make it."
