Carroll's mortal aversion wan th hrr
His favorite occupation for ten days in
the early spring was gardening, and his
front fence was illy secured against
hogs, for Carroll, though a man of much
speculative enterprise, was not one whose
hands always seconded the work of his
heat'. There was not a completed thing
on his premises, including a well which
he had dug to the depth of twelve feet
and which he had then abandoned for-!
ever. The hoes wonld brenlr thmni.t,
his fence and root np his roses, and the
well caving in about the edges became a
yawning gulf in his garden, and during
me nuuy season it partly filled up with
water, and a hog fell in one night and.
to Carroll's joy, was drowned.
Men did their best in the dead of a
rainy night to get the poor animal out.
bnt a hog is not a being possessed of any
capacity for seconding or furthering hu
man attempts at his own rescue. So he
drowned, and was found the morning
after a grand New Year's ball at the
Bella Union hall hanging by Joyce's
clothesline over the middle of the street
between the Bella Union and the Mag
nolia. The next night they put him sec
retly in the cart of a fish t,l,n,.r u,i,
had come np with salmon from the
uuuqiim, ana tins man un
wittingly hauled the hog out of town.
Carroll unfortunately allowed his
mind to wander and stray overmuch in
the maze of theological mysteries and its
(to him) apparent contradictions. lie
instituted a private and personal quarrel
between himself and his Creator, and
for years he obtruded his quarrel into
all manner of places and assemblages.
He arrived at last at that Doint where
many do under similar circumstances
a belie in total annihilation after death
and this serving to make him more mis
erable than ever his only relief was to
convert others to the same opinion and
make them as wretched as himself. Oc
casionally he succeeded. He came to

people are so meeting, so crossing, so

daily in the back room, as ours did at
Doc Lampson's. in Montezuma, or Bak
er., m jamestown, or Dr. Walker s, in
Bonora. There's no reception at the
camp groceiy as there used to lie at
"Bill Brown's" in Montcxuma. There's
no lawyer's office, where he finds privi
leged to drop in as we did at Judge Pres.
ton's, in Jamestown, or Judge Quint's,
in Souora. There's no printing office
and editorial room all in one on the
ground floor whereiuto the "Camp Sen
ate" lawyer, judge, doctor, merchant
and other citizen may dailv repair in tho
summers twilight, tilted back in the
old hacked armchairs on tho front ja.rt
ico, and discuss the situation as wo used
to with A. N. Francisco, of Tho Union
Democrat, in Souora, and as I presume
the relics of antiquity and '49 do at
that same office today.
These are a few of the features which
made "camp" attractive. These fur
nished the social anticipations which
lightened our footsteps ovor those miles
of mountain, gulcb and flat. Miles are
notuiug, distance is nothing, houses a
nine apart and "camps" five miles apart
are nothing when people you know and
like live in those camps and houses at
the end of those miles. An evening at
the Bella Union saloon in "Jirntown"
was a circus. Because men of individu
ality, character and originality aiet
there. They had something to say.
Many of them had little to do, and per
haps for that very reason their minds
the quicker took note of so many of
those little peculiarities of human natnre
wnicn, when teid, or hinted, or sug
gested, prove the sauce piquant to con
Tersatien. When Bro.wn, the lawyer, was study
ing French and read his Tl
aloud by his open office window in such
a stentorian voice as to be heard over a
third of the "camp," and with never a
Frenchman at hand to correct his pro
nunciation, which he manufactured tn
suit himself as he went along, it was
a part of the Bella Union tdrcus
to hear "Yank" imitate him. When
old Broche, the long, thin, bald headed
Freueh baker, who would never learn
one word of 'English, put on his swal
low tailed Sunday coat, which ho had
brought over from U Belle France, and

fun manufactured for them at the thea
