Virginia, Maryland and Bonnsylvan-
in.    Kspccially does he like stories
nf tlle days wliun Uie Indian lived on
the Atlantic coast, and when      the
Iroquois held sway in what is   now
.New York and tlio northern part ol
Pennsylvania and the territory contiguous to the Potomac and Suserue-
lianna Rivers. Mr. lioyce is an    excellent    listener, but he is albetter
filer of storlosiof this kind.     Ho
knows many of them-.
Among tho immortal thirty-seven
who landed on' Jamestown Island in
1607 was a lioyce, and from      tliat
Boyce sprang the ancestors of    the
Chicago' publisher.   Prom his lather

I'enn had never been heand ol hy the
Indians or it had been forgotten. At
any rate, they lost no opportunity
to make life miserable lor the settlers. One oi the daughters ol my
grea't-graalygrandtathor, Abbtev Uoy-
ce, who at that time wars only alit-
lle girl oi nine, went out to the
fields with her lather .nil brothers
ono day, and while playing around
she strayed away from them. Ever
I on theuleit to bring grief and trou-

was biding behind runj.ii-by bush,

possible hi the Indians, but she was
taken away from her home, Alice
many days ol travel she was taken
into onc ol tho I'aiuildian settlements and sold. The jKiiple treated
her kindly _
