this whole claim waa thick woods when
I fust seen it.
" T vis a cur'ous thing, too. I'll tell
you how 'twas. You see, I kinder tfot a
notion that it would be a (rood ii!cn to
take up some pov'imnt land, so I rode
up here from Santa Crur., 10 mi!;, ever
a pesky bad trail, and my fr'i'ni, 1 lie
Cruwfordk, over here on the K..u Li;im
zo. they showed' me this quarter-section.
"There was a little shack of a cabin
on the place, built by Tom Tutor, a
feller who ured to hunt und trap for a
livin", but he never pre-empted the land,
and at that time he'd trone to Arizona.
So I took up the ranch, without any idee
of trouble, and then went bnek to Santa
Cruz to jrit some things, 'cause 'cordin'
to law you had to live on your claim six
mouths lie fore you could prove up.
"Hut the next time I come up. Mal
colm Crawford he told me that he'd
heard' there was another fclli r pros

there himself with his gun to inquire
about it, but didn't tee nobody; but he
saiil I'd better tflt up tliere as quick as
the Lord would let me and hold down
"I left my horse at Crawford's, 'cause
there wa'n't much feed In the woods,
and made up a pack of tk nr. baron, rof

shotgun that he said milit come in

I found that I'd forgot to bring any am

'"What you doin' In that cabin?" he
says, real cross.
" 'My residence nt present,' anya I.
'Won't you come In?'
" 'None o' your hlarsted saree wi' me,'
he says. 'This 'ere is my claim, und I
want you to pit off it directly.'

says. (I'd left it outside leanin' against

We had quite a anow itorm but
shortly afterward we had a warm balmy
wind that molted the snow. We kyive
had no blustery winds. The stock in
the mountains have fared well through
out the atoim. As there has been plenty
of grass In the mountains they have had
no excuse for coming home. At present
tliere Is a mild soft rain and the creeks
are raising. .
The miners have plenty of water and
to spare. A good many minora from
Idaho and also from Montana are here
at our hotel waiting fur conveyances to
take them to dilferent mines. Many of
these'uien represent capital.
R. Q. Virtue is enlarging his store as
the business is largely iucreasing. We
are sending a large amount of goods to
the different mines. We have had to
hire additional clerks to handle our
goods. If any one had told us when we
commenced that we should have the
volume of business that we have, we
should not have believed them. The
roads are in a horrible condition but the
teams are going to all of the mines with
heavy loads of freight.
Ho far there Is no sickness reported
U lass ware
and no severe colda. We hava a few
people In our midst that are too alow to
catch a severe co'd.
In conclusion we will say if present
prospects develop we will have marriaget
la our midst. We have some widows,
great and small, who are desirous of
changing their names, 30 we will let tha
Coubieb wait and wonder.
ITCH IS TORTURE.
Eczema is caused by au acid humor in
the blood coming in contact with the
ikiu and producing great redness and in
flammation ; little pustular eruptions form
ind discharge a thin, sticky fluid, which
dries and scales off ; sometimes the skiu is
hard, dry and fi.-uured. Eczema in any
form is a tormenting, stubborn disease,
and the itching and burning at times are
almost unbearable; the acid burning
humor seems to ooze out and set the skin
on fire. Salves, washes nor other exter
nal applications do any real good, for a
long as the poison remains in the blood
it will keep the skin irritated.
