In tho spring-time, often with no other companion than a stubborn nack-mulo. whloh he loads along by ahaltor, the gold-hunter turns his back on such civilization as border towns can boast of and hides himself anions' tho awful solitudes of the nioun - o . tains, whero ho remains, excopt when ho repairs to tho noarest sottloraonts to procuro fresh supplies, pursuing his InnMv nnd dancorotis tasks until the storms of winter compel him to seek sholtor again among the habitations of his fiillow-mon.
