MY LAST STAKE.
A Thrilling Story of Early Life in California.
It is a cold, stormy, chilly evening in Sacra
mento, and north eastern winds that com from
the snowy tops of the Sierra Nevada bring .with
them a wintry feeling of disoomfort to the denl
sons of the plains, disagreeable In proportion to
tbeir rarity, ine ueavy curiam k"""
In my snug little cottage are closely drawn, and
grate gires a cheerful light and beat to the hap.
py borne I have found alter years ol toil and vi
cissitudes. The calm content that now blesses
me ia a fitting conclusion to the stormy days
that hare passed. Sitting In my cosy arm chair,
gazing at the genial aud changing flames, a
host of unbidden memories oome to me from the
past, like dreame, more tuan iieo me outer re
alities they were; lor we scarcely can realize,
In looking back to early life ia California, the
Indifference and coolness with which we met
danger and even death when all was lu a state
of delirious excitement, a feveiUh mania lor
gold-seeking actuatiug all and proving a worse
curse than even at present.
While indulging lu tnese tnougma anu tne lux
ury of comparing past sufferings ana sorrows
with nrMut hanotufss aud love, a Boft little
hand had crept into my hand, a soft cheek rest
ed against my lace, and the Inquiring eves of
my darliog little girl, Kitty, met mine; yet an
other band claeped my lelt and another head
was resting against my heart, whence loving
looks sought mine iroin the liquid depths of my
wife'a bilght eyee. Gazing within them, I
could read there the unchanging love that
made my constant happinessi for what more In
estimable boon can lortnue bestow on a man
Iban tbe love of a true woman?
SaIiI a voice In mv ear, "Father, jou pro
mised me a story to-night a real, true story

nA about cold dieelne, and klllloe, and
all those strange thing the newspapers tell
about, sometimes. 1 Know you canj ana per
bnpB you was most killed In those horrid times
vouraelf "ere you ever, papa?"
The cnilQ eager uunuonj uiuugu w n
membrauce one of those dark episodes In my
litn. that came and paesed so quickly, that It is
with difllculty I can realize 1 was an actor in
it, although at tbe time 1 viewed the Incident
not in verv remarkable. The child nestled
KkH to me. ana as ine inougms tue nau sug

a story for hef amusement.
Yes, those were dark times for me in tbe lat
ter part of the year 1852. Recovering from a
severe and nearly fatal illoess, I was totally
without means, or any aieaoy empiojmen.
Educated as a gentleman and having passed
th vreatar Dart of tai me among dooks, ae a
scholar, I bad no friends among those who might
bave assisted me in ootaiug wura. auu ureau
Man more there were, doubtless, who, like
myself, preferred the keen, biting pangs of
hunger, to making a confession ol poverty, or
aakine: aid from tbe mocking lips of charity.
Ids true many will consider it a very repre
i,.nir.iA decree of oride: but I felt I would
rather die than beg a favor from my fellow-man,
aud very near I came to It that winter of 1652.
How many In like circumstance may have
passed away in death, throughout rhe length and
f.rtrh nf California: and whose sad story and
fit unknown, shall never be told. In a dismal
earret. ooen to the winds ot heaven, unprotect-
ed from ue cdiu, auni j w wuumj
panes of hunger, lean never lorget tnose long,
i.inir. arv nle his. A dull, hopeless despair
seized npon me, and life and death were alike
indiBereut. In tbe day time it was Better; some
littia emolovment could eometimea be had
keep away the wolf huueer-tbae was gnaw pg
at my vitals. Yet, duriug all this period, like
tbe Spartan boy, 1 concealed my sufferings in
m, boaom, ana uuuo mm u.o.
walks ol lilo ever knew ol my destitute concli
i L! nhtained work for a few days, aud Ly
this means put a few dollars in my pocket, but
still it was only a temporary relief; and after
the email pum was eked out to its utmost ca
pacity , lor bread, then, as had happened many
limes before, another period ol sufleriog was
come. All this bad, combined with past mis
fortunes, neaily broken my spirit, and hope was
even departing irons toe norizon oi my lumre.
I was weary of disappointment, almost weary
f life. In this unfortunate state oi minutrecK
less and Indifferent, I was warning one eveu.ug
along street, San Ftaucibco, which led by
a lone wharf to the water's edge. I bad
half formed idea in my head that ou reaching its
termination 1 soouia nave neiore me, at least
the means by which I eould terminate all my
present suffering. As I recollect my feel
fr,M at that time, I do not imagine that for
moment, I serioucly contemplated suicide, bnt
rather that there wa a certain fascination and
t...,r in aeelne the war by which mortal
t..hia could be left behind. At that time
gambling, in all Its varieties, was the great tea-
ture of life In California, and its hells " (
be seen on every hand, all over the city ; but
tome innate feeling of disgust more than from
reasoning, 1 had never gambled; for it always
seemed to me that a dcllar obtained by intellt-
.,., ni .ha mlDQ anu nouses saour, wo nurtu
fur mire than many dollars gained by mere
blind chance. I had too muob connaence in my
and manhood to stoop to the tilokery
, dice, for money I ought to have the power
gain by more luiemgeus mcauo.

faro table around wbloh were tome newly ar
rived and very successful miners, judging from
the many thousand dollars tney nao on tne ta
ble. Under the loflaence of bad whisky, and
the vicissitude of the game, they were appa
rently as reckless as myself to consequences. Ta-
king from my veatpocicei a tenoouar goiu piece,
which was all I had in the world, I threw it on
a card at random one on which the otbeia were
not betting as my last stake. It doubled and
doubled, again and again, many times, UU at
length even the half drunken miners, who
were playing for such heavy stakes, took an in
terest In my strange luck; and the rumble faced
dealer, whose attention hitherto bad been en
tirely devoted to them, turned his eyes with a
sinister look upon me. When my card won for
tbe ntntb time I toon up irom tne tame in com
and dust, $i,120, with a stolid coolness I bav
since many times wondered at, and putting it
in a couple of bags given to me by one of the
miners, I thrust them into my pockets. As I
stepped aside to leave the table, the dealer,
turning round to some one in the crowd, and
giving him a peculiar look of intelligence, said
wltb a laugb:
That' $ a heavy ptu to carry r-
"1 soou found out the truth of his remark.
Not wishing to elbow my way through tbs
crowd directly to the door, I passed round be
hind tbe tables In tbe back part of tne uouie.
Leading from tbe room were a number of badly
lighted passages one or two were quite dark.
As I went by cue of the latter, before I turned
round toward the street door, a man standing in
the obscure liebt. nearly conoealed bebind tne
door post beckoned me toward him, with a mys
terious gesture. Without tmuatng, i steppeu
through tbe door a few feet to learn what b
wished, and when within a few yards of him, as
I took another step, quicker than 1 can tell it,
the floor passed from under my feet, and I was
sinking rapidly under the waters of the bay.
With the instinct of self preservation, I strug
gled for the life I bad beldsoobeap. At'length,
after what seemed to me a long time, almost
suffocated and weighed down by the fatal gold,
I rose to the surface. A light from a dark Inn
tern flashed down from the mouth of what ap
peared to be a square well, bnilt on the water
of tbe bay, and constructed of smooth pannel
boards. In these few moments of time, by
that ghastly light, 'mid all tbe despair and hor
rors of that scene, a whole life of thoughts and
memories was before me. Notwithstanding all
my past misery, I could not, without a struggle,
die a dog's death. I could see above me, in
that interval of time, the oale-looklnir faces of
two ruffians gazing down. One grasped In his
hand a long pole, armed with a sharp point, and
directly opposite me, in the well, within a few
feet of mv face, was a bloated, livid face of a
swollen corpse, that bad, unknown to me, served
to obstruct my rising to tbe surface In tbe
flickering light and disturbed waters, it appear
ed to mock acd jeer, moving nearer ana nearer
Just then one of the men said to the other:
"Split bis bead and lob him under or be will
sing out." 1
And down came the fcharp epear, touching my
arm, slightly iclurine me. He then drew it
to tnrow it again witn mors deadly purpose.
Tb despair of death was upon me, and from
my lips tbe name of ner lar away arose in
choklnir crv of anguish.
At that luatant oi time, tne report oi nuiois,
shrieks of pain, mingled with the varied sounds
of deadly conflict, came to my ear; the despe
rado abore me in baste oast tbe spear, and tneo
with hia oomnanion. rushed to the scene of oth
er murders, doubtless feeling secure of
victim left in the well. Tbe lantern hung on
nail, about sis feet above me, and a piece
rope had been carelessly dropped from what
to be a vertical trap, opening outward
Bodies were found in tbe bay so frequently
those days that they excited little curiosity
comment. At a glance 1 could see all I
described, and although wounded in my left
by the spear, still, with the desperate energy
despair, i puanea tne swollen oouy unaer
feet, and eprang to grasp tbe rope. Twice
failed, and big drops of perspiration fell
my forehead, as I thought the murderers would
return instantly. Tbe third attempt was more
successful, for I seized the rope which, luckily,
had a knot at the end with a degree
strength I could not have used under any other
circumstances, and raising myself toward
floor above, which I found on one aide ot
well, there was a space between the boards

space,' encumbered as I was, I do not know,
all the events I have described passed in a
moments, although It seemed an ago to me.
I dropped myself down on tbe outside into
rippling waters, and f awing as quiokly as possi
ble from pile to pile, under the street and many
booses, I scarcely stopped to breathe uUil
found myself far from tbe spot. Once I thought
I beard smothered voices aud the sound of muf
fled oars, but if so, they could not find me,
I made my v. ay cautiously to land a long
off, lor I well knew they would use every
means to trap a viqtim who had discovered their
crimes. Exhausted and very weak from loss

garret. Late the nest morning, when I woke,
1 could not believe tne aoove events, except
troubled dreams, until reaching out my hand,
felt tbe weight of the money in tbe pockets

Scroftila, or King's Evil,
la a constitutional disease, a corruption of tbe
blood, by which this fluid becomes vitiated,
week, and poor. Being ia the circulation, it
pervades the whole body, and may bunt out
In disease on any part of it. No organ Is tm
from its attacks, nor Is there one which it may
not destroy. The scrofulous taint is Tarlously
caused by mercurial disease, low living, dis
ordered or unhealthy food, Impure air, filth :
and filthy habits, the depressing vices, and, .
above all, by the venereal infection. What ,
ever be Its origin, it is hereditary in tbe coo
ntitution, descending " from parents to children
unto the third and fourth generation ; " indeed,
it Kerns to be the rod of Him who says, "I
will visit the iniquities of the fathers upon ,
iu effects commence by deposition from the
blood of corrupt or ulcerous matter, which, in
tho lungi, liver, and internal organs, is termsd
tubercles; in the glands, swellings and on,
the surface, eruptions or sores. This foul cor
ruption, which genders in the blood, depresses
the energies of life, so that scrofulous constitu
tions not only suffer from scrofulous com
pluints, but they have fur less power ta with
stand the attacks of other diseases ) conse
quently vast numbers perish bv disorders
which, although not scrofulous in their nature,
are still rendered fatal by this taint in the
system. ' Most of the consumption which de
cimates the human family lias its origin direotly
in this scrofulous contamination; and many
destructive diseases of the liver, kidneys, brain,
and, indeed, of all the organs, arise from or
are Aggravated by the same cause.
One quarter of all our people are scrofulous i
their persons are invaded by this lurking in
fection, and their health is undermined by it.
To cleanse it from the system we must renovate
the blood by an alterative medicine, and in
vigorate it by healthy food and exercise.
Such a medicine we supply in
Compound Extract of Sarsaparilla,
the most effectual remedy which the medical
skill of our times cun devise for this every
where prevailing and futal malady. It is com
bined from the most active remeaials that have
been discovered for the expurgation of this foul
disorder from the blood, and the rescue of tho ,
svstem from its destructive conseauences.
licncc it should be employecLor the cure ol
not only Scrofula, but also those other affec
tions which arise from it, such as Encrnva
and Skin Disbabes, St. Anthony's Finn,
Host:, or Ehysitklas, Pimples, Postui.es,
Blotches, Blains and Bona, Tenons, Tetteii
and Salt Rheum, Scald Head, Rinoworm,
ItiiLiMA-risM, Syphilitic and Meucuuial Dis
eases, Dnoi'SY, Dyspepsia, Deuility, and,
uidceil, all Comvi.aints AitisiNO ruou Vitia
ted en Impure Blood. The popular belief
in " impurity of the blood" is founded iu truth,
for scrofula is a degeneration of the blood. TLe
particular purpose end virtue of tlus Sarsapa
rilla is to purify and regenerate this vital fluid,
without which sound health is impossible in

for the whole class of dlaeaaea originat

quantity. Such a remedy is invaluable in districts
remedy which, while it cures the above complaints

"Cpub" expels the miasmatic poison of Feveu
and Aoue from the system, and prevent the de
velopment of the disease, if taken on the first ap
proach of its premonitory symptoms. It is not only
the best remedy ever yet discovered for this clans
of complaints, but also tne cheapest, ine iari
quantity we supply for a dollar brines it within the
reach of every body ; and in bilious districts, where
FEvrn and Aoub prevails, every body should
have it and use it freely both for cure and protec
tion. A great superiority of this remedy over any
other ever discovered for the speedy and certain
cure of Intermittcnts is that it contains no Quinine
or mineral, consequently It produces no quinism or
other injurious effects whatever upon the constitu
tion. Those cured by it are left as healthy as if
they had never had the disease.
Fever and Ague is not alone the consequence of
the miasmatic poison. A great variety of disor
ders arise from its irritation, among which are
KturcJgia, Rheumatism, Gout, HeaJacht, Blind
nest. Toothache, Earache, Catarrh, Astfonn, Pal
nitation. Painful Affection of the Spleen, lhsto:-
ic$, Pain in the Souult, Cohc, Paralysis andfic
rangenunt of the Stomach, all of which, yvkcii
originating in tms cause, put on tne tmrmuini
type, or become periodical. This " CouE " expeis
the poison from the blood, and consequently cure
them all alike. It is an invaluable protecuon t
immigrants and persons travelling or temporarily
residing in the malarious districts. If taken occa
sionally or oauy wniie exposea to tue iniecui:.
that will be excreted from the system, and comet '
accumulate In sufficient quantity to ripen into dis- .
ease. Hence it is even more valuable for prelec
tion than cure, and few will ever suffer from Intei
mittents if they avail themselves of the protection
this remedy affords.
