from this country. We landed in

over the trail one week later. Each
man has to have 1,110 pounds of
rub besides his bed and clothing
and you may Us it is some work to
move 1300 pounds 45 miles through
snow from three to ?ix feet deep. I
have eeen several eastern boys turn
back already. A man had better not
come hare unless he is in perfect
health and has 00 or $10dO. There
are ail kinds of rigs on the trail: dojj
teams, goats, oxen, mules, horsss and
men. A man can pull 100 pounds over
most of the trail, a goat is supposed
to pull 100 pounds, a good dog can
pull 100, a horse 200 and an ox 2u0.
