;i it "a,a considered highly improper
and( VU:,k1ar to endeavor to climb into

ie ~cwas a one-eyed man. The
mtetn eye, I afterward loarned, had
been (iroh)led inl a California mlining

at on idritable trouble to gather,

that followt'd the discovery that six or
seven ace.i were on the table Butch's
eye had been promptly extracted by
a'tother mlel"rry lman, and he had
been awtv-ardly carved by a third and
bnit liiigy shot by a fourth. On his
recovery Butch saitd that though ho did
nioltomid baru. ingi little funi with the
boys the boys of that camp played a
