EJ Hall's Good Luck.
I Ed Ilall, formerly a resident of
Bellevue, has struck it rich over in .
Oregon. Years ago Ed was an industrious 1
citizen ol Broadford, but being a cripple
lie could npt endure hard labor, and it
was with difficulty that he kept the larder !
o his aged parents well supplied. Several
I years ago Ed and his parents removed to
Oregon, where he learned assaying, and
for some time he has been employed
, /v * a c»
an assay olT.ce at Sumpter. Since ;
Sumpter has come into prominence as a
gold mining camp, Ed made a "blind
__________ .1 a mountain side and induced
his father to statt a tunnel and run fora
"blind lode," Ed agreeing to assist the
old gentleman all he could during his
spare moments. The old man worked
diligently for months, with occasional ]
help from his son, and succeeded in |
penetrating the mountain several hundred I

help iu their support.
One evening, a few weeks ago, the old
gentleman went down home with his
pockets full of rocks. "Where's your
washtub, Mrs. Hall," were his first words
on entering, and nothing more. It be
ing pointed out, tie forthwith seized an
ax and demolished the faithful old tub
in a jiffy. He then entered the house
and proceeded to throw out doors the
well-worn furniture, including the old
lady's highly-prized old-time rocker,
Mrs. Hall, becoming alarmed and be
lieving her husband crazy, ran out and
called for help, and when she and her
neighbors entered, tile old man was
dancing a jig of joy. He finally cooled
down and informed the astonished crowd
that the old lady, Ed and himself were
rich—that he had "struck it big in
I the tunnel," and to verify his assertion
he produced saveral specimens of rock
glittering with gold.
When Ed came to supper lie was over
joyed to hear the old man's story, and
that night they spent proving the width
