Some of the Dangers Attending TtrtUa

As ono approaches today the rising
tlopet of tho Sierras in California, the
more especiallyin that portion extend
ing f rom Nevada county on the north,
through placer, 1 Dorado, Calaveras
and Mariposa counties, on the south,
certain signs and indications are met
with, the landmarks, so to speak, of
the pioneers of '49.
1 rode, pretty much all through that
country on horseback some year or so
ago, and came near losing my life in a
number of these "landmarks," which
have proven fatal to many others be-
lore ana yet remain a constant source
of danger to the unwary traveler in
Jjoubtless this habit is most oncn iaia
in childhood. How many mothers
feed their babies as often ns they cry,
taking it for granted in the most im
becile manner that the baby cries for
food, when more often tho helpless
littlo victim cries becauso it already
has had too much food. When tho
stomach once becomes accustomed to
being crowded with food, if (he supply
is cut short there Is ut first u gnawing

or Hangtown, as it was called in the
Argonaut days. Here is where the
greatest rush to the gold diggings took
place. The creeks and mountain
streams all about contained rich de
posits of gold, and tho gold hunters
fairly swarmed over this portion of
When the yield of the river beds
was exhausted tho miners began sink
ing prospect holes. These varied in
depth from tin to one hundred feet.
Sometimes when "pay gravel" was
struck great streams of water would
bo called into play, cutting wide
chasms into the soil and often wash
ing away mountains themselves.
These claims, when abandoned and
when afterward covered with a growth
of underbrush, rendered it dangerous
to travel in their vicinity at night for
fear of falling into ono pf these arti
ficial precipices, which could not be
seen until the very brink was reached.
Tho prospect holes, however, are
another matter. These are met with
every where in tho region I have de
scribed, often not more than ten feet
a'ltai't. They are rarejy pipro than five
feet in diameter aud; owing to' the
growth of underbrush', ai-o veritable
pitfalls and death traps.
Many a man has started out on a
prospecting tour and tumbled head
long into one pf jhese nils, never to be
heard from again. Wild animals of
all kinds also are mado the victims of
those; deadly prospect boles.

there. "Do you seo those glistening
sjxsts on tho hall carpet?" he asked me.
"Yes." "Do you know what causes
them ?" "No.,r "Well, I can tell you,
for I've watched the thing. It's one

in Petra held more anxiety than this

ous wretches into whose hands we had
voluntarily placed ourselves at Aka

of intolerable yelling and bluster
