Well, it was, and when I think over it all now,, and think that here I am, alive after it all, I can hardly be lieve it myself. Would you like to hear about it? Well, sit down and make your self comfortable, and 111 tell you. It's nine years ago last valentine's day (I remember all the dates well enough, I warrant you) that I was at 'Frisco with a Yankee, name of Seth Hickman. We'd met down in Denver, and stood by each other in a row that Happened tnere, and of course tnat drew us together a bit : and the end of it was, we agreed to go prospecting together and snare and snare alike. Seth was a sharp fellow and knew all the likeliest spots, and I could do a day's work with any man in those days, though I ain't muck to brag on now ; and the end 01 it was we made a pretty good haul. When we got to 'Frisco I thought of nothing but banking some of the stuff lor a rainy day and having a spree with the rest, and then starting off again ; but Seth didn't seem to see it all. I noticed that he looked serious-like, as if he had something on his mind, for the first two days after we got into the town : and on the second evening, as we were sitting over our grog, he spoke out : "Jim, old hoss, I'm a-gwine to tell yew something that nary soul in creation knows about but myself ; for if yew hadn t been some smart with your .Der ringer when them three skunks went for me down in Denver they might ha' wrote ' Gone np' over this child ; and no man ever did seth Hickman a good turn, nor a bad turn neither, but what he got ce- coanut for you tit for tit, yew bet yure hie on that I "When I was in Africa last vear I went up country a bit with my rifle, and thar I happened on an old Indian critter, as old as George Washington's nurse, livin' in a hut all by himself among the spurs o' the Andes, and I camped in his hut for the night. " Wal, the aguardiente (whisky) in my flask war a lee tie tew strong for him, and lie got reg'lar slewed ; and when his tongue got loosened by the licker he kirn out wi' sitch a yarn as whippud every- 1 1 ' Tl 1 1 . 11 1 . 1 1 TT. 1 uiing 111 x rowcuLL ttu uj iilh. ilu uaiu that when the Peruvian chiefs stampeded from Cuzco a'ter Fizarro took it, a lot on 'em got up among the mountains, carry ing thoir gold with 'em, till they kim out on the plateau 01 I take Trtaca ; and thar, nndin' the Spaniards close on their trail, they chucked all the gold into the lake and skedaddled nobody knows where. And he said that if anybody took the trail from his hut, north and by east, till they hit the southern end of the lake, and then looked out for a big three-cor nered rock like a pyramid upside down. they'd jest got to scoop in the mud of the lake whar tout rock s shadow fell on it at sunrise, and they'd find 'miff gold to buy up all Wall street. New, we ve got money enough to put that job through, and if yew feel like tryin' it, I'm in." I said "done" at once, and we got our money together, and slipped down the coast to Africa as fast as the Pacific steamer could carry us. The minute we got there, Seth went off into the nilla to try and get hold of his old Indian for a guide, while I hunted about "for work men for this was a job that needed more hands than our own. At last I got hold of two Spaniards two sturdy lellows they were, and honest enough as Span iards go and then a Portigee and two niggers. We weren't long in buying our stores and working tackle, and by the time Seth came back with his guide, all was ready and away we went. Seth was much too knowing a bird to let on what his real game was as long as we were within hail of the town, for if you say " gold" there only in a whisper those blessed Gambusinos (gold-finders) will hear it a hundred miles off. So all that we told our gang was that we were going prospecting among the lower ranges, as lots of fellows did cvory day but when we wcro past tho old Indian's hut and well up among the hills, so that our chaps couldn't easily turn back if they wanted, he up and told them the whole story. They were rather taken aback, as well they might be, for Lake Titicaca's a good many day's journey to the nor'east, among some very awkward mountains and a good tliirteen thousand feet above the sea, if it's an inch. How ever, a Spaniard (or any other man, for . that matter,) will go pretty nearly any where if he once gets on the scent of gold ; to our fellows they spoke up stoutly enough, and said they were ready to go up to the lake, and down to the bottom of it into the bargain, after such a haul as that ; and off we set again. 1 ve seen a good many wonders in my time, knocking about the world as I've done ; but anything like that climb up the Andes I never saw yet. Hocks that seemed to go up into the very sky, straight as a plumb-line ; beds of moss three or four deep, and soft as a velvet cushion ; trees two hundred feet high, all one blaze of flowers from top to bot tom ; leaves big enough to wrap you up like a blanket ; tree-ferns big as a table cloth, all ghttering like the finest silver lace ; humming-birds and monkeys and parrots, and butterflies as broad as the palm of your hand ; waterfalls sheer down over great black precipices a thou sand feet high ; and far away behind the everlasting mountains, piled one above another till they seemed to go right np to heaven. Among all these enormous things we eight men, big and strong as we were, seemed of no more account than a lot of ants crawling on a blade of grass; and I think I never felt so small in my life as I did then. However, I hadn't much leisure to think about it at the time, for you can't expect a iellow to have much of an eye for scenery when he's hacking his way through a great cobweb of branches too thick for the light to get through, with his boots full of ants and his mouth full of gnuts, and the damp vapor-bath heat of the woods melting him away bit by bit, fifty prickles going into him at once, a thorn-bush scalping him from above, and a creeper tripping him up down below. And so we hammered along, till at last we worked up to the plateau and saw the great lake spreading away beforo us as far as over wo could see. We weren't long of making out the three-cornered crag, nor the shadow neither, for it was just sunrise when we got there, as if o' purpose for us ; and once we'd made it out we hardly waited to take breath be fore we were at it tooth and nan. Tho first day was a rctrular blank one till just toward sundown, and then the Portigee screeched out suddenly that he'd got something heavy. I helped him to haul up the pan, and there, sure enough, was a bar of gold over a foot long, and pretty nigh as thick as my two fingers here. At that we all shouted at once, and went at it harder than ever ; and I really think our chaps would have worked all night, but Seth stopped 'em. He told 'em that the gold wouldn't run away, and that if they put on too much steam at first they'd just knock them selves up before they were half through, and that tney d better just light a tire and get dried, and have some supper, and fix up some kind of shelter against the dew, and then start fair next morning. And so they did. The next day and the next and the next after that we kept bringing it np in handfuls gold circlets and chains and necklaces and ingots without end. But on the fifth day I found the provisions getting so low that I was rather scared, for up here there was no game of any sort, there being no vegetation at that height for the game to live on. So we held a council of war. Our chaps had got the gold-fever so into their blood by this time that I verily believe they'd have kept digging on till they died of hunger; but Seth and I, who were a little cooler, talked them over at last. We told 'em that we'd got enough already to make us all as rich au Jews ; that we must all starve if we didn't replenish our stock somehow ; that ten to one the "find" was played out (and, indeed, none of ns had taken a grain all that morning); and that, in any case, the lake was always there. and they could come back and try again whenever they liked. 80, bit by bit, we worked 'em round, and all started to go back together. We'd hard work of it the first part of the way. for our loads were orettv heaw. and stumbling in and out of the great rocks was no joke, let alone that the five days' work had taken it out of us more than we expected. One of the Spaniards got a bad fall, and not one of us but had his bruise to show. But at last we got over the barren bit and found ourselves fairly down among the wood again : and then I began to be jolly, thinking this was the end of it, Hut it wasn t it was only the beginning. CHAPTER II. ; One afternoon, when we'd got well down among the lower ranges, we were just looking about for a place to camp (for the Spaniards who had got hurt was beginning to give up), when one of the niggers said suddenly "Senor, man watch us 1" I looked up, and there, sure enough, was a man (a savage-looking fellow enough, but evidently no Indian) watch ing us from the top of a ridge, a Mttle to the left. He kept looking after us for a little while, and then disappeared as if the earth had swallowed him. "Don't like that," says Seth, "that critter s seen that we carry a heavy snag, and he's gone to tell some of his chums, you bet ! 'When one has found a pumpkin-pie, He goes and tells the t'others 1' " I feel like campin' in a strong place to-night, 1 do 1 And so we did with a deep canon (gorge) behind us going sheer down nearly a hundred feet and a thick clump of trees in our front that made cover, while beyond it the ground was smooth and level for a good eighty yards, so that no living thing could come near ns without being seen and tired at. Just as we'd lit our fire, and were be ginning to cook, we saw first one man and then another, all we d counted fif teen in all, come zigzagging in and out 01 tue ousnes, down the lace 01 the oppo site ridge. They halted just at the edge of the thicket, and took a look at the smoke of our fire rising above the trees : and then two of them ;laid down their nnes, and were coming" across the clear ing to us, looking as friendly as they could, when old Seth shoves his head through the leaves, and says in Span ish : "Gentlemen, we're talking over little business of our own, and wish to be private, so you 11 oblige us by keep ing your own side, and we 11 keep ours ; for we have a way of shooting things that come too near ns, and we should bo sorry to lift you by mistake ! Back the two beauties went, looking as silly as a ha'porth of treacle in a two- gallon jug, and Seth rubbed his hands and gave a chuckle. "They'd got a bottle in each hand, them two," says he : " they war gwine to make us slewed, and then clean out our swag : but they don t fool this child. no how. Naow, ye see, they'll wait till dark, and then go for us with a rush that's what's the matter with them but I guess we'll be not at home' when they. call. He whispered to me to cut down three or four of the longest creepers and twist them into a rope ; and I, guessing what he was up to, did it with a will. In a few min utes we had a rope that would have stood anything ; and then L hitched ono end round a tree, and let drop tho other down the ravine the rest making a great shouting and singing meanwhile, by way of a blind. Then the old Indian (who was as nimble as a cat) slid down to the bottom, and wo lowered our packs to him, one by one. "That's all right," says Seth ;" and now we'll just take it easy till dark, and then take passage by this new overland line of oum." But one don't take it very easy when there's a gang of bloodtnirsty rascals, twice your strength and armed to the teeth every man Jack of 'em, sitting waiting barely eighty yards off to cut your throat ; and I think I never found any time yet go so slowly as those two last hours before sundown. " Naow," says Seth at last, when the darkness had fairly closed in, "I guess well begin to leave." But jost then, aa if this had been a signal, there came a flash and a bang from the other side of the clearing, and half a dozen bullets came peppering in among the trees. I felt something warm spurt over my hands, and the nigger who stood beside me fell all of a heap. Like light ning I up piece and let fly, and I heard somebody give a yell that sounded as if that letter had gone to the right address, and then, for a few'minutes, it was just flash, flash ! bang, bang I like a firework Seth and I kept 'em in play while the rest slid down one by one. And mighty ugly work it was, too, I can tell you, blazing away in the dark with nothing to aim at, and near the bullets come rattling about yon without ever seeing who Bent them. But the rope was soon clear, and then Seth stuck np the dead nigger against a tree, with his gun across the fork of it, that they might see the glint of the barrel, and think we were still on the watch. Then he slid down, and I after him. The first thing we did was to take th'e- gold out of tho poor old nigger s pack, and part it among us. The rest of the tilings we threw away, as we had thrown away our tools long before (for our only chance now was to march as light as pos sible), and then we set forward along the gully. For some time we could hear the rascals banging away overhead, but that died away by degrees, and there was a silence as if the world had just been cre ated and no life come into it yet. All that night wo Btumbled along the bottom of tho ravine like men groping in a tunnel, sitting down every now and then to rest ; but when day came we saw the rocks on each side getting lower and lower, and the great black pit spread ing out broader and shallower, till at last, a littlo after sunrise, we came out into the forest again. Bnt just then the other nigger sat down and put his hand to his side. " No can go farther, senor 1" I ran up to him, and blest if he hadn't got a big bullet-wound in his side from last night's scrimmage, and the brave fel low had actually dragged on all night without saying a word about it, lest he should keep ns back ! I sat down and took his head on my knee, and he died as quietly as a child; and we covered him with leaves and loft him lying there in the bright morning sunshine, and went forward on our weary tramp again. It was harder than ever for us now, for we had eight loads among six men, and already I could see one of the Spaniards beginning to stagger and tho old Indian trembling like a leaf. Then a horrible kind of fear crept over me that we should keep dropping that way, man after man, till there was only one left ; and then but at that thought I threw up my arms and gave a sort of yell like a man start ing up from a. bad dream. But Seth punched me in the ribs with his elbow, and whispered. " Sh 1 don t frighten the rest. And I set my teeth and choked it down. It may have been an hour or two after this I was beginning to lose all count of time now that Seth, who had got a little ahead of the rest, suddenly sang out : " Hurrah 1" We all looked up. "Here's somethin' civilized at last, by hoe-cake I" says he. " Guess we've struck the right track without knowin' it. Look here." Just in front of ns was a gully about forty feet deep, through which ran a small stream, and across it lay a bridge not one of the rope bridges you see in Lower Peru, but good solid wood two long beams from bank to bank, with cross-pieces lashed to them, just like the sleepers on a railway. Then we all shouted at once and stepped out to cross it; but, all in a moment, the poor old Indian, who was one of the hindmost, lurched over the edge and went slap down into the water, and the gold he carried just sunk him like a stone. Whether he'd got hurt in the fight, too, or whether he was just tired and dizzy like the rest of us, I can't say but down he went, and we never saw him more. So now we were cut down to five, and had lost our guide into the bargain. "That's a bad job," says Seth: "but never mind, boys we must jest steer by the light of natur now. Whar thar s a bridge like that thar oughter be a trail somewhar. Sure enough there was a trail, and we tried to follow it, but we soon lost it again, and tramped on all day at hap hazard, trying to steer by the sun. Toward evening we halted to eat, and then pushed on again hot foot; for that was the last of our provisions. Just as the moon rose we came upon a gully with a bridge across it, and there we all stopped dead and looked at each other a look I shall never forget. It was the same bridge that we had crossed twelve hours before ! That minute's one of the things I never like to think of. There we wero, lost in a tropical forest, our guide gone, every man of us as weak as a child, and not a morsel of food leftl "Well, boys," says old Seth (who was our mainstay throughout), "we're in a kind of fix, thar ain't no denvin' it Naow, I calc'late this bridge ain't bin long built by the look of it, and so, in stead o' goin' losin' ourselves outer everybody's way, I guess we'll jest stick here till some party picks us up it won't be long, 1 reckin. That s my idee; now does it strike yew 1 We all agreed at once; and, indeed, we were too far gone now for any more marching. So we sat down there for three days, bearing it as well as we could, and trying to shoot game between whiles. But our eyes were too dim and our hands too shaky for that; and the birds and monkeys scurried past, chattering and screaming as if in mockery. And at last we couldn't keep it off any longer, and it came. The Spaniards died first, and no won der, poor fellows! for though some of them are as brave men as ever stepped, they haven't the pith and fiber of an Englishman. The Portuguese held out longer, for he had the heart of a lion; bnt at last he went too, and old Seth and were left alone. " Seth," says I, " let's bury these poor fellows while we can; for if they're loft lying here, and our hunger gets worse, we might be driven to yon know I" So we wrapped the poor fellows in their blankets, with a heavy stone in each, and rolled them over the edgo of the ravine down into the water. We buried the gold, too, and marked the spot, in case anything should turn up to save us at the last; and then we lay down again, as if we had nothing left to do but to die. And alter that everything seems blurred and hazy, like an ugly dream. The trees and the rocks and the sky seemed to go round and round in a whirl, and old oeth stood up as tall as a steeple, and great black things came out of the bushes and made faces at me; and then I was sitting under the old tree in the churchyard at home, and heard my old mother's voice (who's been dead this five and twenty years) as plain as print; till all at once there were men's faces and men's voices all around us, and I felt somebody lifting my head and pouring something into my mouth, and then fainted right off. We had been picked up by a party coming back from the mines, and they carried us down with them to Arica; and when we got round again we went back and dug up the gold, and gave a lumping lot of it to the wives and children of the poor fellows that had died for us. But when I got back after that last week's work my hair was quite gray gray as you see it now. And that's all the story. Francis Conroy had a great deal confidence iu his constitution when at years of age he came to this country from Ireland twenty-three years ago. He sawed wood for a living in New York until one day last week, when he caught a cold, which developed bronchitis, and he died, aged 103. There is no knowing how long he might have lived if he could have kept from taking cold. His wife died three years ago, aged 91, and he left four or five children ranging from 60 to 70, who will now have to bbw their own wood and take care of themselves. It is a very healthy family of orphans, and all expect to step into the next century. REMARKABLE STORY. A Wounded Hunter Lives On Raw Meat for Seven Weeks, Dresses His Wound with Snow and Gets Well. The Vallejo (CaL) Chronicle contains the following singular story: About fifty miles from Virginia City, as the crow flies, is a little mountain vale known as Gravelly Valley. Ia the sum mer season it is a beautiful spot, green and luxuriant, bnt it is snowed in during most of the winter. In February last two hunters, named M. H. Robinson and David Knox, were in the neighbor hood looking for game. At night they camped in a Bmall cabin which had been used in former years by sheep herders.. During the day they explored the sur rounding mountains, looking for bear and deer. They succeeded in killing a large cinnamon bear, which they dragged to the hut. The steaks cnt from its quarters served as an agreeable change from their usual diet of cured bacon and jerked venison. On the morning of February 15, when twelve miles from camp, Robinson, in getting on his horse, accidentally discharged his gun, and the ball, an ounce in weight, passed through his right heel, shattering it to fragments. His companion enveloped the wound in snow and tied it up in a piece of saddle- blanket, and they started immediately for the cabin. Upon their arrival iuiox saw at once that it was necessary to go for a physician. Robinson was weak from loss of blood, was utterly unable to ride to the nearest settlement, a distance of forty miles, and the nature of his in jury was such that he must surely die unless medical assistance was procured. It was probable that it would be judged necessary to amputate the limb to save his life. They wero sworn friends; and Knox, after placing the wounded man in a bunk, covering him with a blanket and leaving him two days' provisions, bade him be of good cheer until his return. He rode all that night through a blinding storm, which set in soon alter his depar ture, and arrived in .Lake Valley soon after daylight. The road passed over a tugli range of mountains wnicn separates the two valleys. There was no cessation in the storm, but having procured the assistance of a physician who was well known to Bobinson, they started to re turn. As they descended the steep side of the mountain the determined men soon found that it was impossible to pro ceed further. The snow was already four or five feet, deep, and was accumu lating in great drifts. Half a dozen times their horses fell into deep ravines. from which they were extricated with diihculty. and they were at last com pelled to turn mournfully back for their own preservation. The regrets they felt at Robinson s fate were of no avail; but all through the winter his untimely end was discussed by his friends around their firesides. About ten days ago, when the snow was pretty well off the ground party of men thought it their duty to go into the deserted valley and bury his body. They had also some curiosity to see whether he had left any account in writing of his approaching decease, and ascertain whether he supposed he had been abandoned without cause. He was a boon companion, liked by everybody, and had a host of friends. They crossed the mountain and came in sight of the spot where the disaster had occurred, nearly two months before, with mourn ful feelings. They arrived at the door of the cabin and were alighting from their horses when a voice within was haard joyfully to exclaim: "Well, hava you fellows got here' at last?" and Rob inson vtuuo irmpuig uui uputi u jjiux ui crutches. The amazement of the party may be imagined. Noticing their sur prise he said: "You all thought I was dead, did you ? I am not, but am as well as ever I was in my life, except this leg." And so it proved. He was aware that the storm which set in upon .Knox s de parture would prevent his return, and at once set to work to moke the best of the situation. Ho kept his wound dressed with snow, and when his ready provisions were exhausted, dragged himself to the carcass of tho bear at the door of the cabin and cut off a slice with his butcher knife. Raw bear meat and water from mountain stream, which ran near by, was all the sustenance he had for over seven weeks. This meagre diet no doubt kept his foot from mortifying. The fever subsided, the inflammation went down, and it soon began to heal. With a wire which he tore oil an old broom, he probed the wound and drew out several pieces of tho bone. He then made a pair of crutches and was able to get about with out difficulty. He was a man of intelli gence, but the only thing in the nature of literary matter he had was the half of an old New York Tribune, which, as he lay upon his couch during his isolation, he perused until he said he believed he could repeat every word it contained advertisements and all. He considers the snowstorm a- lucky thing, as his leg wordd probably have been amputated had the physician arrived. Upon his re turn to Lake valley he was welcomed as one come back from the dead, and the affair is the great theme of conversation throughout tho whole neighborhood. A Chinaman Gored to Death and Then Impaled. I I At the Devil's Elbow, about six miles below Black Hawk, on the line of the Colorado Central railway, where the bed of the road is hewn out of the solid rock, owing to the extreme narrowness of the valley 01 uiear creek, at me point, an ac cident occurred on Wednesday evening last, which takes rank as one of the most horrible and terrible on record. A Chinaman, Ian Wan, working in the gulch mines along the creek, was pursued by a wild and furious bull, which had wandered away from his herd up the creek. For safety the Celestial took to the track, but was closely followed by the infuriated animal, to the Devil's El bow, where the bed of the creek is about twenty feet below tho track, and the top of the telegraph poles on a line with the rails. One hurried moment had the Chinaman to realize that his enemy was upon him, when with all the force of brute power one hom went piercing through the back, passed through the abdomen and came out in front. It was the work of an instant to raise, like a feather, the mass of bleeding, screaming human flesh, and with a toss, to hurl it across tho track and into the gulch. The unfortunate Chinaman, thus gored unto death and tossed into air, in his descent struck upon the end of a telegraph pole, which entered the very same gaping wound made by the horn of the brute in his back, and tho pain-tortured blood besmeared victim was impaled mid-air. Without speech, and pale with horror at the sight, his companions stood power less, until tho heart-rending cries of the unfortunate awoko them to duty. Ho was then taken from his appalling posi tion as speedily as possible, but died in a few minutes. The bull, after accom plishing this deed, passed np the canon, and had not been captured at last accounts. as of 80 The Times snys Dr. Wal pole has lost his beautiful chestnut mare.

Bilious. Remittent and Inter mittent Fevers, v?hich are so prova- . tent in the valleys of onr great rivers throughout the United States, especially those of the Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, Cumberland, Arkan sas, Red, Colorado, Brazos, Rio Grando, Pearl, Alabama, Mobilo, Savannah, Ro anoke, James, and many others, with their vast tributaries, throughout our cntiro country during tho Summer and Autumn, and remarkably so during sea sons of unusual heat and dryness, are invariably accompanied by extensive de rangements of the stomach and liver, ind other abdominal viscera. In their treatment, a purgative, exerting a pow arful influence upon these various or gans, is essentially necessary. Thero is no cathartic for the purpose equal to Dr. J. Walker's Vihegak Bitters, as they Trill speedily remove the dark colored viscid matter with which the bowels are loaded, at the same time stimulating the secretions of the liver, and generally restoring the healthy functions of the digestive organs. Fortify the body against disease by purifying all its fluids with Vinegar Bitters. No epidemic can take hold of a system thus fore-armed. . Dyspepsia or Indigestion, Head ache, Pain in the Shoulders, Coughs, Tightness of tho Chest, Dizziness, Sour Eructations of the Stomach, Bad Tasta in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpita tation of the Heart, Inflammation of the Lungs, Pain in the region of the Kid neys, and a hundred other painful symp toms, are the oflsprings of Dyspepsia. One bottle will prove a better guarantee of its merits than a lengthy advertise ment. . Dr. J. Walker's California Vin egar Bitters are a purely Vegetable preparation, made chiefly from the na tive herbs found on tho lower ranges of the Sierra Nevada mountains of Califor nia, the medicinal properties of which are extracted therefrom without tho use of Alcohol. The question is almoEt daily asked, " What is tho cause of the unparalleled success oi vinegar wit- , TERst" Our answer is, that they remove the cause of disease, and tho patient re covers his health. They . are" the great blood purifier and a lifu-giving principle, perfect Renovator and lnvisoratoi of the syatsin. Never before In Va history of the world has a uiedicinn t,a compounded possessing the rrnarkab'e qualities of Yikkoab Bitters in healing the sick of every disease man is heir to.
