The wen -y hours dragged along. It was
intensely sr ill aud sultry above, I conjectured,
Tor even iu tho deep dark pit the air was
stifling and oppressive, and I could not de

overhung i he mouth of my living tomb. I
could now see that the day was waning.
The heat had become, if possible, still more
sultry and intense, and once or twice I bad
fancied I heard a low, muttering, rumbling
sound as il of distant thunder. The clouds
were hurrying up in tremendous solid masses.

the continuous crash of falling rain all was

SILVER IN A DEAD MULE.
Old Pete" Is Cot Open and Fonnd to Con
tain a Large Silver Ball.
The teamsters driving up Aspen mountain
were surprised to see a dago, as they called
him, opening old Pete. The latter is the old
bay mule that, it is claimed, has been
working in and around silver mines for
many years, and which fell down Aspen
mountain a week ago and broke bis neck.
Old Pete was pretty hard to cut open, as he
was frozen as stiff as the proverbial poker,
and the dago hacked at him with an ax for
two hours before he mined into his maw. He
did the opening act with an ax, but when he
got into the bowels he drew a butcher knife
from a sheath at his side and commenced to
cut in with it.
Two teamsters who were passing down the
mountain with a load of ore were so much
interested at this juncture that they stopped
to see the end of it. Their curiosity was not
long deferred, for they soon saw the Italian
throw the knife to one Eide, make a dive into
the beast's belly with hi3 right hand, and
produce an oblong black ball, which he held
up near bis face and examined critically.
The mule skinners could stand it no longer,
so, tyiug the reins to the brakes, they jumped
down from their wagons and made their way
down the mountain to the place where the
dago held up his treasure. For it really
proved to be a treasure some twelve pounds
of silver that looked like it had come out of
a retort instead of a mule's stomach.
'Who told you that mulo had a ball of sil
ver in his bollvr asked one of the teamsters.
'Mula worka in silva tuina always has a
bulla silva in a bello," replied the dago.
"Who gave you the pointer?" urged the
'Mea worka in silva mina in Hispania
louga tima, always killa mula, taka silva
bulla outa bello."
'But, who told you old Pete had this bo
nanza in his belly?"
Ilea knowa old Peter longa time in San
Juan compaua, moa kuowa he snuffa upa
heapa silver in hisa bello, keepa thera tilla
you killa him, cutta open, tako out bello. Ha
worka in a heapa damno, longa, richa, tun-
nello, where breathe silver, keepa in bello
tilla he expire. He no usa longa, nowa, mea
knowa; cutta hi ma open, tako outa bello. In
Ilispauia de Costilla mula no liva hundred
anno, like in Colorado. He worka in silver
mina decern anno. He geta killa fora silver
in hisa bello. Iu Hispania man knowa heapa
moro as ina Colorado; heapa damno mucba
moro smarta in Hispano."
The teamsters insisted the heapa damno
mucho smarter Italian should ride down to
the Rust sampler with them, where the ball
of silver was weighed by Mr. Vary and sized
up 1 pounds 4 ounces. It was there ex
amined by a representative of The Chronicle,
and was a very interesting subject to the
student in curiosities. The dago wanted to
sell it to Mr. V ary at its par value, but an
other man came up and advised the Italian
to take it east and sell it to some museum,
where he could probably realize a large price
from it as a curiosity. This the Italian de
term iued to do, and took his treasure trove
with him to his cabin, where he will conceal
it until be can dispose of it to advantage. -

medicine, possessing, by virtue of its peculiar

A Boston lady who knew what she wanted,
and whose example Is worthy imitation, tells
her experience below:
" In one store where I went to buy Hood's
Sarsaparilla the clerk tried to induce me buy
their own instead of Hood's; he told me thelr's
would last longer; that I might take it on ten
days' trial; that If I did not like it I need not
pay anything, etc. But he could not prevail
on me to change. I told him I knew what
Hood's Sarsaparilla was. I had taken It, was
satisfied with it, and did not want any other.
When I began taking Hood's Sarsaparilla
I was feeling real miserable, suffering
a great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak
that at times I could hardly stand. I looked,

much good that I wonder at myself sometimes,
