bolt, m lauds ol llio .Missouri, we went through
the hilliest country I ever saw, rlcht stndtht up
and nxlil straight down all tue time. We crussed
tsentv-oiio hills In Uve hour. In Missouri we
found the fields for Hit v tulles aa bare at the
road, not a tieen tiling to be seen. The grass
hoppers had been there. And they will bo there

of the ground erernbere one could rind mil

up In va-t quantities will! tho 1. 1. .Up of a pen

t" green grass and ttasslioppers, and rode fur
fifteen miles through grasshuppcrs and over
cranslioppers. Wo were glad enough when vie
taw the lt of them, I can tell vou. In Western
MUsuurl we uiei a m .n going West who said lie
had met over a bundled teams going enst. An
other man said ours was the Ullv-second te.ttn

tuned there were l.V) wagons encamped on the

and Western Hallway Company's new tunnel
through Ilergen Hill rind were kilted. The tes
timony of fie witnesses only strengthened that
of the day before. Jcrrv Scanlon, a miner, who
was on tho platform when the four men went
down, said that the t.ireo links between tho
bonk and link werj kinked, and when tho four
men got 011 the bucket the kinks caused the
rope lo twist and the hook tn slip sideways un
der the ball. He could not tee the hook when
lbe accident occurred, but he thought that this
was tho limy way that It could have happened.

the men fell, aalJ tint tin one was employed to
hook tho chain securely to the bracket before It
was pulled op.
Thomas II. Parker, who repaired the wood
