Rondure of Riilpr Haggard's startl
ing story of imagination, "Allen
Qaatcrmaln," will readily recall his de
scription of tho loathsomo and horriblo
fresh water orabs wliioh tho adventur
ous travelers encountered on tho banks
of a river in tho heart of Afrioa, but,
says tho Philadelphia limes, thero
are few persons awnro that nearly 250
years ago stronger and more torrible
monsters woro gravely roportcd as ex
isting on tho Delaware, and that, too,
by a historian and minister of tho Gos
pel in a professedly serious work, man
the romancer has introduced in his
lively novel of tho Dark Continent.
In February, 1G43, there landed at n
placo oallod "Tho RockB," on tho
Christianna "river, within tho present
limits of tho city ot Wilmington, ltev,
John Campanius, whose namo ieTsomo
tithes printed John Carapanius Holme.
the last word being added to denoto
the placo ot his residence, Stockholm,
Campanius, who camo with a vessel
load ot Swedish and Dwell im
migrants, was tho second minister who
visited tho shores of tho Delaware and
tho first who remained any considor
able longth of time, his predecessor,
Torkillns, making only a brief stay.
Campanius remained in tho country
six years, exercising tho priostly func
tions, seeing much of tho country, tho
natives and tho early settlers, and
wroto a book, which, edited by his
grandson, printed originilly in Sweed
ish and translated in English, forms
one of tho earliest authorities on tho
history of Now Swodcn, and is for tho
most part trustworthy.
His errors and exaggerations aro at
this day obvious, but when the writ
ings of tho clergyman first appeared
in Swo den they must have created, to
say the least, the liveliest interest in
this thou prao'loally unknown land, and
doubt many innocent Scandinavians
marvelled greatoly at somo of the
things of whioh thoy were told. Of
tho existence of precious metals the
chronicler told only such stories as'
were common to the other writers of
tho time, and for which it is easy1 to
account, as, for instance, by tho quite
natural error of mistaking iron pyrites
for silver or gold. But such stones
were far too tame and commonplace for
tho imagination of Cimpanius. His
remarks upon tho firefly aro more in
accordance with his romancing style
and love of the marvelous.
Ho says: "There is also a kind of fly
which the Indians call 'cucuyo,' which
in the night gives so strong a light
that it is sufficient, when a man is tra
veling, to show him the way. One
may also writo and read tho smallest
"print by tho light they give."
And now follows an invention which
would really do credit to the author
of tho nightmare tales of Africa.
"When tho Indians go in the night a-
hunting," says the old time-Swede,
"they fasten those insects to their
hands and feet, by whioh they can see
their way as well as in the day-time,"
and he further states that ono night
thev frightened all the eoldiers on
guard at Fort Christianno ( Wilming
ton), who thought that an 'enemy was
advancing against them with torches

to disclose the wonders of tno am
mal kingdom. Among the least of
these was "a kind of fish with great
long teoth" (found only in the waters
along tho shore destined to be the site
of Philadelphia), "which the Indians
call 'raamtto, which means spirit or
devil," and which, bo says, "plunges
very deep in the water and spouts it
up like a whale."
The favorite subjects for the exer
olso of tho' writer's imagination seem.
however, to have been tno rattlesnake
and the king crab. Tho latter Cam
panius really makes so muoh moro'for
formidable than Haggard's fresh-water
crabs as to put that author of stal
wart fiction to shame. "At Spiders
Point" (Bombay Hook), says he,
"when the south wind blows, a great
many 'sea spiders' are driven on sboro,
which aro not able to return into the
water. They are as large as tortois
es, and like' them have houses over
them of a kind of yellow horn. They
have manv leet. and their tailB are
half an ell loDg and mado liko a three

"tree1 may be'siwed down.' Whether
the' crabs were in the' custom' of saw

making "clearings" when thev were so
wi fort una to as to bo stranded on the
'shore, or if 'simolv the "three-cdoed'
tail might bo used for that purpose in
tne lianas oi man, is not ciear. it n
interesting to note with what an addi
tional and vague terror the crab is in
geniously'invested by being termed a

It is not strange, in view of theso and
timiliar statements About tne country,
hat' the immigration of the Swedes
was slow, and amounted to utile, to

Thero is something of poetry in the
fact that within a stono's throw of ho

ish settlers landed, on tho shores of
which Campanius told his wondrous
"traveler's tales," is a great industrial
