and humanity's hatred of and impulse to
crush a snake. The squalid figure
shrunk back just a little and his eyes
roved from door to window. The rat
was looking for a hole.
Had any one risen and cried,
" Lynch him ! " the convert would
have been translated there and then.
He began agiin, but faltered. Up to
the day before, he stammered out, he
had walked the streets hanging his
head, thinking everybody knew he had
been in prison, but now he held his
head tip, thanks to these good ladies,
and he hoped God Almighty would
give them long life and pn sperity.
Then he sank cowering to his seat,
scowled about him apprehensively,
dated meet none of the hundred star
ing eyes, and sought relief fiom their
aversion and hostility by letting his
face fall into his handkerchief on the
back of a chair. There were no halle
lujahs. It was too ghastly. The red

Captain Drace smiled again, how
ever, touched her guitar and relaxed
the general tension with a softly-sung
little hymn, to the effect that all things
work together for good to them that
love the Lord.
" Yes, my dear friends," she said
sweetly, "the greatest sinner may come
to Jesus and receive pardon. Though
your sins be as scarlet, they shall be
washed white as wool. Ourdrar brother
who has just spoken told me all this
some days ago, and he has repented
and is saved. Drink is a terrible thing.
I really believe that men do not know
what they are doing when they are
drunk. Now, while we sing 'There's a
Light in the Valley for Me,' let all who
desire to join us in a Christian life
come forward and kneel at this mourn
ers' bench and we will pray the Lord
to give you silvation."
The drums, the fifes, the horns, the
tambourines and the fiddles struck up,
the voices of the Army soared, the fat
boy pounded the bass drum and the

valley with a vehemence that domi

LIVED ON HIS MOCCASINS.
Terrible Experience of a Prospector in
an Alaska Winter.
Charles Otterson, who is registered
at the Commercial Hotel from Alaska,
has passed through an experience
which no ordinary man could have out
lived. Hunger and exposure to the
frightful winter of the Northwest have
worn him away in flesh, and in the
lines of his face there are still traces of
suffering, but he is already thinking of
returning to Sitka.
"About ten months ago," said he, "I
first took it into my head to go to
Alaska. My object was to prospect in
the hills for gold. I had followed min
ing, for a good many years in Colorado
and Nevada, but some way or other I
never had been able to strike it right.
When I left there I had about $300 in
cash with me, and when I reached
Sitka I made numerous inquiries and
finally concluded to try my luck in the
mountains b.ck of the Fish river, about
100 miles from the coast. This deter
mined upon I bought a few cooking
utensils, a prospector's outfit and a
quantity of provisions sufficient, as I
calculated, to last mu about six months.
" Making my way up the river in a
small boat which makes occasional
trips, I bought a small donkey, and
packing my things on it struck into the
interior. The country is exceedingly
rough, and I found it necessary at 1 1st
to establish a camp. Here I cached a
great part of my provisions, and would
make extended trips among the moun
tains. I expected to spend the winter
in a cabin I had built, but in December
a lot of wandering natives made a
descent one day on my camp while I
was absent and stole nearly everything
I had. The donkey in the meantime
had died and I found myself in the
heart of a wild country with about
enougn provisions lett to last me a
"I saw that my only chance was to
make at once for the settlements, and I
struck out in the direction of river.
The second night a howling storm came
on. I lost my way, and in spite of my
heavy clothing came very nearly freez
ing to death.
"I wandered about for nearly three
days, living on raw bacon, and that in
limited quantities, as I was doing all I
could to nurse my little store, knowing
that when it was gone starvation would
stare me in the face.
"At the end of ten days my last
particle of food had disappeared, and I
was so weak from cold and exposure
that I could hardly stand on my feet.
I knew that I must keep on, and an
extra pair ot moccasins 1 had were
eaten. They lasted for three meals,
and I tell you they were about as good,
it seemed to me, as anything I had
"All this time I could make but a
few miles a day, I was so weak and
benumbed with the cold, and jusi
about the time I was preparing to die
it seemed to me I came in sight of the
river. Here I crawled in among the
rocks and rested, and then struggled
on. A few miles farther on I came
upon an Esquimau village, and here I
was taken care of by the natives. They
were very kind to me, and at last two
of them agreed to take me to Sitka.
"When I reached the latter place I
was still weak and suffering greatly
from the exposure I had undergone,
but I regained my strength rapidly,
and a little more than a month ago was
able to start for San Francisco. I am
confident that there is a great deal of
gold in the country I was in, and I
mean to go there again as soon as I j
can make arrangements to do so." :
