Accordingly we struck :aaije at a plaee called R.ittle saake springs and finding the srass geed and "oe-ii" abuneUnk, we stretch ed our little tnt,and ra.tde preparations fat a few days rest. I avn going to assusns right here that a majority oi ray readers have sever been '-'a prespsstin' " and that as a con sequence they will be interested in all tha sws.ll details of such aa experience. I will t'lierefaro proceed to describe iach matters as pertain to it, not neg lecting the firt and most important, our bill of fare and usual mode of pre paring it. I was ceak, self constituted, for I will not Uy down ths frying pa a, the principal cooking utensil af a prot pectr, for aay man living. Bill was "Cargarlare" or packer, alo frera cheice and he eauli unpack the "train" of 6va animals, while I was unsaddling any saddle hsrse. Thus wo were pleased with our self assigned duties, and dur ing our leng jaarney never had a sing- a "jower" which is an unusual experi ence under sucn circumsnnces. Thus far our travels had led 03 through a country almost devoid ef game. I had ehct a few sae hens, which were tough, and whoise flesh were strongly impregnated with the wild sage they sebsiit upn, and row and then I knocked ever a iackrabbit, more for target practice than anything lse, a3 their backs are full ef wriH3 in the spring, and tiiey are of ceurs unfit for- fod. As a consequence our bill of fars was limited to flour, bacon, dried fruit, cclTee and the mountain desolate spetj the days spent there as the rcifct disagreeable, and the land scape as photographed upon roy mind, the tsst uiiiitritiog. m my sunioaer's ex pjil8r!ce. t "crests cf irfge-b-ush extend as far inter ii.

B., this i copyrighted and ins tils bread is the next task and as that I is tha only portion of the camper's culi nary art that requires any particular degree of skill, I w ill inform my tender foot readers hew to knead bread with out a Boar pan. Take a pint of water which will make sufficient bread fur two, if you are net to fcungry, shkn the )lur solidly into the sack, make aa agertare in the top, taking care to have the flour evenly divided 2giri:t the sack to keep the water from touching it; put in a sufficient aiajjr.tsf salt aud stir uutil sufficient ly stiii' to hancils, make into thin cakes and caek. T.icra is alio an art in cook ing it but this is only acqined by loi:g practice. At tkis desolate spet we spent five days, occupying the time in caring for eld Jumbo's ailment, and lightening in a rapid manner th loads of the ani mali, for cur appetites had increased ever since our dopartere frem heme. Tn every journey that I have over taken there has always been some dark particular spoV some day or eeeurrense thai is fi.ted in nriy memory as the tarn down page, as it were, of the trip. Rattlesnake spring3 stands oat boldly in the records of rjiavW -y a3 tBS meit as the eye c u reach npnn every sislo and sand lizirds, rattlstnakes anal coy ets are tha only animal life to be met with; if I exewut an occasional eage lien thai was flushed by our dogs as we traveled along the sanely road. The wind howl! incessantly during the whele pei iod of our stay, a great portion of tho time accompanied by a driving rain. J One day I toek my gun ana made tho circuit of a butte that roared its scald head a short distance from our camp. (I wake the unusual simile for the reason that the top of such emi nencss are eaUert their heads, and this one reminded me of a banian head aillitd with elt rheum.) I Lad hard ly reached a point out ef sight of our camp, whirl I observed a shabby coy ote sneaking up the side of the butte. In pure wantonness, I raised my guf) te my sbsukler and fired. I was grati fied by hearing his yelp of anguish, and seeing his form quivering and beund- inT in its death agonies. When arrived at tho spot where he had fallen the poor fellow was in the last threes of death. Near where he had rseeived tho cruel bullet lay a dead squirrel with marks of his fang. upon its body, and 1 knew that lie had been carrying tht small morsel of food, though starving himself, to his half famished dam Who fas caring for her pretty litter in her den among the crevices of the reck up tho mountain side. As I looked upon his stiffening body and considered my part in tho tragedy, I folt half a murderer, and whelly ashamed ef tho act. Man is the only creature that robs another ef the existence God has given it, without reason or motive. Hero was I, standing over an inanimate frm, made so by my cruelty, in whoso death I was none the gainer. I was reminded by lny wantonness of these seekers of wealth who, when their do cires are satiated by enormous accu mulation!!, murder happiness and de stroy sosis because they have the power, and itj is their trade. Old Hatch and Juy Gouli have crushed to earth thousands, with less eompunc tin than I felt over tho despised ani mal that lay dead at my feet. But there, I dare say . few whose trade and delight it is to hunt to death the wild animals of tho forest and plain, could moralize thus over the slaying f a prairio wolf, and I drop tho subject, feeling that I have made some reparation for tho deed. Our patient began to show signs of recovery and wo gladly resumed ear journey, for wo began to long for tho forest clad hills and their cooling shades. The beat: of the lun on these plains even at this. early season of tho year is intense; besides, we longed to reach a locality where game was to be found and where wo might begin to look ief "prospects." We had met a man from tho Methow rallay, who informed us that a rich silver lode had been found in the val ley just previous to his departure, and as tho Mothow river country lay in the district wo had marked out for explor ation, we heped to lose no time in ar riving in that vicinity. N jt far from our lata camp made Memorable by the incidents related, we passed a lonely grave lurreunded by wkite pailings, upen a small butte near the road. We were informed that it marked the resting place cf a poor fel low who had suicided niar tho spet seine years since. No doubt tho act had been superinduced by tho depres sing influences that all aaust experience who traverse this dreary region.' As we passed the lonely spot, Bill smiled grimly, remarking in his droll way that he couldn't help feeling a little inclined that way himself; after which, wo urged tho tired "mules" to a livelier gait, as if to increase tho distance be' tween ourselves auu the uncanny place. We stretched our tent that evening in a little valley or "coulee" as the canyon are called. Rattlesnake ceu Ue, I think was the ramo of this val ley. The sail j looked black and rich, but was, I dare say, liks most of . t-. . . . i i tuoso raiieys, suoect to iaie anu eariy frosts. The grass, however, was luxu riant and water plentiful; two Lies sings our recent experience had taught us tiritppreciate. j i vYe were nw Hearing Ritzvillo NO 3.
