boss of the ranch for several reasons.
First and foremost, he was too much
for any one of us single handed, and,
secondly he had many good points
about him. While he was overbearing
and brutal at times, he was the best
miner in the part}', and no bad luck
could discourage him. With any onein.

"Break up! Hunt for luck!" sneered
Big Ben whenever any thing was said
about abandoning our claim. "Well,

try to walk off and leave me in the

Big Ben insulted us a dozen times a
day, and on three o: four occasions he
laid hands us in a violent way, but
somehow we stuck there. As I told
you, he was a practical miner, the
hardest worker in the lot, and we
leaned on Jam. in spite of the fact that
we hated him. We could have shot
him down in some of the quarrels, and
the verdict would have been: "Served
him right but we knew that he had
a good heart down in his bosom, and
the hand which clutched knife or pistol
was always restrained.
One afternoon, while I was minding
the cabin and the other men were at
work in the tunnel or shaft, a stranger
entered. He had come up from the
Forks, three miles away. He was a
boy of sixteen or thereabouts, with a
girl's voice and shyness, and he
hungry and in rars It was bitter cold,
unci -)et his clothing was of the thinnest
kind, and he had hungered so long that
he was hardly more than a shadow. I
welcomed and fed and warmed him,
and then he told me that his name was
CharleyBl.ind.andth.it he had wan
dered out there to look for his brother
James, from whom he had received no
word for two or three years. They
were orphans, and both had been bound
tofarmeisin Illinois. Both had been
ill used, and Charley had finally fol
lowed James' example in running
away. This boy had been knocking
around the silver camps for six months,
sometimes meeting friends and some
times treated like a dog, and he hadfeatures
found no trace of his brother. Some
one down at the gulchit was a cruel
thing to dohad told him that James
Was at our camp, and he had periled
Ms life to como up there and see. On
that day, as I shall never forget, there
was afoot of snow on the ground, a
blizzard raginsr, and the thermometer
marked ten degrees below zero.
The boy was asleep when the men
returned from tho shaft. Big Ben was
out ofsorto at the way things had been
going, and no sooner did he see
hear the lad than he called out:
"He cau't stay here another hour.
We don't run a pooi house, and we let
no baby-faced swindler eat our hard
earned pi visions."
"I'll work. I'll work as hard as ever
I can," protested the boy with a sob in
"There's no work for you. You've
got to move on to tfie camp above."
The four of us protested in chorus,
and we took such a firm stand that
deadly weapons were drawn, and
would have been used but for the ac
tion of the boy. He was terribly fright
ened over the row ha had been the in
nocent cause of, and as the four of us
had our pistols leveled at Big Ben and
meant to shoot if he moved a foot, the
boy opened the cabin door and glided
out into the dark and bitter night with
tho silence and swiftness of a shadow.
"You are his murderer," we said to
Big Ben as we lowered our weapons,
and he growled:
"Curse him! If we took in every
straggler we should be crowded out of
house and home before New Year's.
What is it to us whether he lives or

within tho hour, however, as he went
to the door and acted as if he hoped to

lhad been gone half an hour before we
fully realized what his going meant,
and then two of us went out with the
lantern and searched and called for
liim. The snow was being whirled
about in a furious raannev, and theit
wind was rising to a gale, and the bit
ter cold drove us back after a quarter
4 ?oJ an hour. It was true that we
little enough to eat, and that we wore
cramped in our cabin, but the idea of
driving that pale-faced orphan boy out
to freeze was something we could not
get over. It was just the thing needed
to set us up in rebellion against our
boss, and that night we threw off the
yoke and gave it to Big Ben right and
left. We had two or three rows be

Whew! But what a night that wasI
The cold increased until the rocks were
split, and the wind roared until our
cabin threatened to topple over at
every blast At midnight Big Ben crept
carefully out of his bed and opened the
door, and then 1 almost forgave him
for his brutality. Conscience had been
at work, and his heart was touched.
He hoped to find the boy crouched on
tho threshold, and I heard him sigh
and mutter to himself as he shut the
door and returned to his blankets. The
strongest man in our party, clad as we
were for the winter, could not have
stood against that blizzard half an
hour, and I fell asleep to dream of find

trail leading down to the Forks, and
of his big blue eyes being wide open
and staring at me in a reproachful

and it was evident that we had been
poisoned by the meat Wo had no
antidote of any sort, and one after
another went to bed to suffer the
most agonizing pains and to lose con
Big Ben was the hardest
of all, while I, perhaps, suffered the
least That is, while all the others
raved and shouted and lost their senses,
I was all the time dimly conscious of
every thing going on. The blizzard
was still raging, and the thermometor
was marking a still lower degree when
the door opened and Charley walked
I saw him, but I was flighty, and
it soemed to me that he was dead. I
remember his looking down upon each
of us in a strange, scared way, andin-law
starting to retreat when one of the men
shouted a louder curse.
I was the first to come back to life,
as it were, and that was twenty-four
hours after being firot taken. The
pains were gone as I opened my eyes,
but I was weak and wretched, like one
just over a terrible fever. The boyknow
Charley was standing before me as I
opened my eyes, and he bent down and

couple of hares to seek shelter at the
door, and he had secured both of them.

was prepared to feed U3 as soon as we
could eat It seemed that when Biaj

morni.ig came he returned to the
cabin to make one more appeal. He
found us suffering and out of oar minds,
and the fire about gone out Had it
not been for him we should have frozen
stiff as pokers, for on that day it was
thirty-one degrees below zero all day
long, and it went down almost to forty
degrees when night came on.
The boy kept up a rousing fire,
dressed his rabbits for soup, and all
day and all night long he kept forcing
strong coffee down our throats. That
doubtless helped us to pull through,
or at least four of us. The other man,
whose name was Hale, had his teeth
rirmly clenched, and from the way his
were distorted and his limbs
drawn up it was evident tJiat hts died
in great agony. In a couple of hours I
was able to be up and assist Charley in
caring for the others, but it was farwastes
into night before the last man could
use his tongue in a sensible manner.
It was Big Ben, and when conscious
ness returned and he saw the white
faced boy bending over him the great
"Aye! The corpse of the lad has
risen up to confront and accuse me! It
was a cruel thing I did to drive him
and the Lord will never forgive
me for it!"
While out of danger we were yet
weak and almost helpless, and none of
us could attend thefireor do a bit of
cooking for nearly a week. The whole
work devolved upon the boy, and no
one could have done better. He was
cook, nurse, doctor and protector, all
in one. He got three more hares and
a couple of birds, and I don't believe a
spoonful ot the broth went down his
Well, I, for one, had been watching
Big Ben to see what he would do.
The first moment he was able to sit up
he called Charley and pulled the frail
little fellow down on his breast, saying:
"If you'll only forgive me I'll pray
to the Lord to do the same. I'm rough
and wicked, but to turn a lad like you
out o' doors on such a night as that
wasn't me at all. Old Satan must have
had possession of me."
That great big fellow cried like a
child, and Charley cried with him. and
I might as well own up that we all
cried. What made it more solemn was
the fact that we had a corpse at tho
door. When it was known that Hale
was dead, none of the other four of us
could lift a hand. How the boy

three long months before we could give
it Christian burial.

Every cvy went through the big fel

soothed the poor boy with all the ten
derness he could command, and two
or three times carried him about in his
arms as a father would his ailing babe.
There was a doctor at the Forks, and
after dinner Big Ben braved the bliz
zard and made the trip down and back.
The doctor could not be induced to re
turn with him, owing to the cold, but
he sent some medicine. Poor Charley
was beyond human aid, howover. Ho

and next morning was struck with
death. His mind came back to him at
the last and as we stood over him he
calmly said: %&
"I know Tm going to die,'but I'm
not afraid. Til see father and mother
in Heaven, and perhaps Brother James
is there too."
While we all felt bad enough, Big
Ben was completely broken down. He
got down on his knees and begged
Charley to forgive him, and I never
saw a man feel the bitterness of an act
as he did.
"Yes, I'll forgive you," replied the
boy, "and if you pray to God, He'll

GentlemenFor severalt years I have felt it
to be my duty to give to you the facts in rela
tion to the complete cure of a most aggra
vated case of salt-rheum, by the use of your
'Golden Medical Discovery/ An elderJw lady
relative of mine had been a great sufferer from salt-rheum for
upwards of forty years. The disease was most distressing in her
hands, causing the skin to crack open on the inside of the fingers
at the joints and between the fingers. She was obliged to protect
the raw places by means of adhesive plasters, salves, ointments and
bandages, and during the winter months had to have her hands
dressed daily. The pain was quite severe at times and her general
health was badly affected, paving the way for other diseases to
creep in. Catarrh anctarheumatism caused a great deal of suffering
In addition to the salt-rheum. She had used faithfully, and with
the most commendable perseverance, all the remedies prescribed
by her physicians, but without obtaining relief. She afterwards
began treating herself by drinking teas made from blood-purify
ing roots and herbs. She continued this for several edrs but de
rive* no benefit, Finally, about ten years ago, I chanced to read
one of Dr. Pierce's small pamphlets setting forth the merits of his
Golden Medical Discovery' and other medicines. The name struck

ERY acts powerfully upon the Liver, and
through that great mood-purifying organ,
cleanses the system of all blood-taints and
impurities, from whatever cause ansing.
It is equally efficacious in acting upon tho
Kidneys, and other excretory organs,
cleansing, strengthening, and healing their
diseases. As an appetizing, restorative
tonic, it promotes digestion and nutri
tion, thereby building up both flesh and
strength. In malarial districts, this won
derful medicine has gained great celeb

mediately recommended it to the old lady who had been so long a
sufferer from salt-rheum. She commenced taking it at once, and
took one bottle, but seemed to be no better. However, I realized
that it would take time for any medicine to effect a change for the
better, and encouraged her to continue. She then purchased a
half-a-dozen bottles, and before these had all been used she began
to notice an improvement. After taking about a dozen bottles she
was entirely cured. Her bans were perfectly well and as smooth
and healthy as a child's. Her general health was also greatly
improved the rheumatism entirely left her and the catarrh was
almost cured, so that it ceased to be much annoyance. Sbe has
enjoyed excellent health from that day to this, and has had no

seems to have entirely eradicated the salt-rheum from her system.
