E,kUrOOVice-Pr6a,nt, HAED TIMES IN EABLY DAYS, Experlencea and 'Prlvatlofae la Call fornla In 1840. New York Tribune: The cjtscov ery of gold In large quantities In Alaska and ibe reports of largo finds Lave stimulated travel in that direc tion,, and excitement similar to that widen prevailed iu the United State wlitn gold was discovered in Califor ma, and in England when the first reports came front the African gold fields, prevails in the far West. Min ing T.ud exploring expeditious have already started, and others are being organized,. New, York, Philadelphia and Chicago papers, (Contain advertise ments of prospecting parties," which any one may join by paying an initia tion fee of $500, and ( adventures are working their way toward the Pacific Coast with a view to being near the mines, if they cannot be iu them. There are many original "forty tdners" I u, various part of the Uuited States, and many cities have organiza tions where the original gold hunters meet every year to tell the stories and relate the adventures which made the "days of '49" the. most importaut Iu their careers. The experiences of these men are listened to with re newed interest at this, time. Many of the white-balred gold hunters of the days of '19 believe that the risks which men take iu going to the new gold iields are as nothing compared with what they did "way back in '49." No matter bow hard they will have to work." said one old man, the men who go to Alaska will never have to put up with . what we did in the days when gold was first found in California. There are railroads and the telegraph now, and improve ments bt-n.Mtlitd that bring people nearer to civilization, no matter how far away they may be, but in those dayswe goon-a ship and went'by way of Aspinwall or Panama, with the chance four out of ten that we should die of the fever; or we went overland in a 'prairie schooner,1 with the; chances about the same that we should be killed 'by Indians or .robbed by desperadoes,- Once on the spot, we were cut off from our frionds, and there was no regularity about com munication with the rest of the worlds California was a' world for itself, and, all things considered, a pretty tough world at that, where everything, ex cept bumau life, was high; where a man had to have his wits about him every minute and be prepared to fight for his rights. To prove the fact that everything was high, It was shown in old memo randum books that when the roads to Sacramento City were poor prices ad vanced in a fabulous degree. Flour sold at f 1 a pound, molasses and vine gar brought $2 a bottle- and a small! bottle at ;. tbat-potatoeejjiwc quoted at $1.50 a pound,, and otbeV"provIgl9ns in proportion. A shovel" was worth $16, and a good pair of heavy boots were worth from 940 to 50. The chief article of food," said the story teller, "in those days was the Chilean bean, and such was its value that in time of scarcity huge nuggets of gold were given in exchange for a bag of beans." Books and papers were at a pre mium. There were a few bibles that had been brought by way of "the I lorn," but that was all. It became known that a "Farmer's Almanac" lut' I been packed with some stuff which arrived in camp, and it was quickly bought at a ridiculously high price. He who became the possessor wrote after: "I read the almanac through and through, forward and backward, side ways and upside down, and by spring had acquired such knowledge oi as tronomical science that I could have located the signs of Zodiac blind folded, stand on my head and calcu late an eclipse, foretell the condition of the weather for, more than ten years abad and prognosticate the value of popcorn, baked peanuts, and chewing gum for the whole time." i. m An Individual Wtao Is Not a Klon- dtlcer Tells a Story. I've been bearing a great deal about the cold weather that will drop down on Klondike mighty soon now," remarked a western editor iu Washing ton on buslnew of his' own, according to the Star of that city "and I am ure they are going to have a dreadful time of it, some of them, before the sprlug freshets, but I am jure not a man arooug them will have a sadder ex perience with the cold thun I did in the winter of 1870. I was a printer in St. Louis iu the spring of that year, with a llttleexperlence In editing a pa per and there was a chance for me to go to a new mining towa that started up about fifty miles from Denver and start a paper, or, rather, keep the one going that had' been started there by the chap who wanted me to come out and join him. "There was adventure iu it, and I was younger then than I am now, so it was that in May I was the editor-in- chief of the Blue Gulch Gazetto, a weekly journal of civilization, as we proudly aunounced in our motto line. We did nicely ail that summer, and I enjoyed It, though I wat told it wasn't so pleasant climatically iu win ter. One of the attractions of the oflice was a devil' that we had got from the newsboy gang in St Louis, and be was the sharpest and brightest little cuss In the state of Colorado. He was about 14 years old, and he wouldn't weigh over fifty pounds, but he was all nerve and muscle. Well the first snowfall wasiu Octo ber early, and the weather whacked around to all points of lfe compass for tbe.noxt six Veekiu- !tJwT: Unsettled steady, and the weele before Chrtsmas It looked as if we were goiug to, have a nice holiday week. But we were doomed to disappointment, for three nights before the day the snow began' falling, and a terriOo blizzard swept up through the high-walled ratley iu which our town was located. Thirty- six hours later, when we got up in the morning, the town was snowed under, and there was no getting around at all. I sent Snips out to see If 'he could bore turougn ana lie came uack in ball an hour with something hot for us to eat, Snips:and,I occupying a back room in the office and boarding around: He told me he had seen two or three peo ple at the restaurant who had bur rowed through a block or two, as the snow ,was light; but how deep It was none of them, knew, as it was above the roofs of the two-story houses, the highest we had. Then a 'brilliant idea came to Snips. "'There's our smokestack, Major,' he said, 'It's forty-soven feet by the measure, and just about the 'size for me to pull myself up through by them wires Inside of it, just like I did when we fixed that guy: Lei me swarm up to, the top of lt;and see where the snow comes lo. I can do it easy.' "Well, gents." concluded' the wes tern editor, "I let him go,' and he nev er came back. 1 guess ha, must' have fallen off of the top some- way and got smothered in the snow, or frozen to death or something. Anyway, when the snow .thawed down in a rain that followed in a couple of weeks we found the poor little fellow in the pure white snowand as black as the ace of spades from the soot that he bad got on him self climbing up in that smokestack." It Is said of Prescott, tho historian, that he could carry six pages of his printed work accurately in his 'mind before, dtctatlug It to his amauuesls. When his Ferdinand and Isabella ap peared Sydney Smith said that a Cas pian sea of soup awaited him in Eng land.", This quaint allusion to pros pective' dinners might be interpreted with an opposite meaning In these days on this, side of the water. People of any calling are not aesirous of being referred to In connection with the ChUrvftM wont "ooup. WITH A 22 CALIBER. Mllltia oncer Telle a 8tory or Kite Overcoming a Great Lion. Some one in the group of militia men had been showing a target perfor ated at a mile by a bullet so small as, almost to appear rediculous, says the Washington Star. "Aud yet," said a veteran who had seen service, "I know an inslauce of a lion being killed with one of these small cat rifles shooting a B cartridge. About alt they are good for, you know, Is to shoot sparrow with:" A very commendable use, If they are 'those nasty Eugllsh sparrows," ventured some oue, whose seutlment was unanimously applauded. "True enough," continued the nar rator. "But to the lion part of my story. A dozen or more years ago I bad a gang of men at work blasting rock in a railroad cut to shorten tho line. We were near a town, and to this town came a circus with wild an imals; including a lion which was no torious for his ugly temper aud his size. Of course a parade was part of the show, and I had given my men two hours or so off to go and see it. They were acoorapauled by my 14-year-old boy, who left his gun, one of those cat rifles I have mentioned, with me. I had my office in a shack near the cut, and here I was busy on an engin eering problem after the camp was de serted by my force. "As I sat in the shack, with its sides open, hard at work, about an hour after the crowd bad gone, I was dis turbed by the sudden yelp of a small dog we had with us, .followed imme diately by a growl like thunder, I lookd,up, and to-ay surprise and fear I saw. not, fifty yards away, a great yellow beast with half the dog In his mouth. I thought at once of the bad circus lion, and was sure that he had escaped in some way, ana that nobody knew where he was except myself, and that I was going to haye a scrap with htm unless I could escape. This I tried to do, but the lion saw me, and at once came my way, at first with bounds and then creeping as a cat does. The thing now for me to do was to defend myself, but there was absolutely nothing I could use except my boy's rifle, and that was so small It made me laugh to think of training it on a lion. However, it was all I had, and I took it up aud waited, with a half hope that I might land the small bullet in bis eye and disable him for s few mluutes, anyhow. "Slowly he came towards me, and as he crept nearer, I noticed that he had got a dynamite cartridge fastened to bis body by a ,snap we were usiug on some of them in some experiments we were making. Some careless work man had left tho cartridge, and this snap had evidently caught to the hair on the beast's foot, and ho was drag ging it aloug with him. As I noticed this I remembered that one entire end of it was like a, big percussion cap. and I wondered if I couliin't shoot my little bullet and bit' that part of the cartridge. "Well, he kept coming until he wasn't fifty feet away, ami then- I let her go. She snapped like popping an Inflated rose leaf on the back of a fair lady's hand, but in an instaut there was a tremendous explosion, I went over backward,, and I didu't know any LEVI -STRAUSS & GO.

They said the liou bad escaped, and while looking for it tltey had heard the explosion and bad run over to see wbat it was. Fifteen minutes later I had gathered myself together sufS clentlyto tell them what had hap pened, and when one of the circus men found a bunch of hair like a white wash brush on top of my shack he identified It as the end of the lion's tail. That's about all there was left of him, too, but I don't want to shoot any more lions with cat rifles, I'm telling you." 1 . Or. King's New Discovery for Con sumption.
