and make two nips each day and with
our twelve head of horses you see that
we can get stull up theie pretty fast.
We will get all our stull up theie in
one week mow, sine By the 2d or !ld
of Apiil wo will be at the top and then
the worst will be over, that is if it is
like tliis on theotler side of thuMiinmit
or White Pass. It isonl a winter Hail
and it is thawing very fast, and when
it thaws out twill be so tough that a
bit d cannot lly over it. You uauiiot
think how rough i. is in places on the
trail that 1 go over every day. If
I should make a misstep of twelve
inches, I would tlnow myself, horse,
sleigh and all, over the mountain side
from 50 to 200 feet down, but tliere is
so much snow on the bottom that it
does not hint anything to fall. I saw
au ox fall 125 feet ami get up and walk
oil. I was on the trail the other day
and a pack mulo got down and could
not get up. They had to get him oil'
the track to let us pass so they lolled
him over the precipice. That is the
way they do business out here. I wih
that Uncle and I had our hoi-es out
bete. I could sell them for $300 ea li
for cash. Mules like outs would bring
100 each. Hay is woith $200 per ton.
Theio was a man cinio up to camp the
other night to buy a bale of hay, and
we told him he could have it for $12
and ho ofleied us 8. Wo have ten or
twelve tons to sell and thoy toll us that
by taking it about 35 miles, over on
Lake Bennett wo can got $400 per ton.
So wo aro going to try and see what wo

we will have good roads so that wo can

It is true wisdom for every
body to tuko a thorough course of
Swift's Specific just at this season
of tho year. The blood is sluggish
and impoverished, aud the system
is full of impurities which should
bo eliminated. In addition to
thoroughly cleansing the blood,
and toning np the system so as to
avoid loss of appetite and a gen
eral run-down feeling in ths
spring, S. S. S. so strengthens and
builds up as to fortify against the
many forms of dangerous illness
that abound during the hot sum
mer season. It is a very small
matter to tako this precaution but
it insures health and strength all
summer. Swift's Specifio
is far ahead of all other remedies
for thiB purpose. It is a real
blood remedy which promptly
purifies the blood and thoroughly
reuovatcfi the entire system, tones
and strongtheuB the stomach, and
renews tho appetite. It is the
only safe tonic, being purely vege
table, and the only blood remedy
(uaranfe'eti to contain no arsenic,
sulphur, mercury, potash or other
mineral substance, which is, of so
much importance to all who know
the injurious effect of theso drugs.
Nature should bo assisted by na
ture's remedy, S. S. S. Tako
8. S. S. and be well all summer.
