traveling (as he was a doctor) and
selling hay to the busy prospectors,
and found more gold in so doing. One
of his comrades found enough Black
Hills gold to make a ring for his
sweetheart and returned home. One
of his partners dug a well in the center
tf Deadwood and sold water and made
good. This uncle is about 80 years old

through to Englewood. Mrs. Moore is
a sister to Mrs. M. A. Summers.
