"Three years ago I was living in Mon

and it created a demand for silver rock.
I owned an interest In a lead that had
been sunk on SO feet. Thinking tho
time had como to mako it available, I
concluded to go there and get sotno ore
and have It tested. I did so; and reach
ed tho placo just In time to take shelter
In tho mine from a terrible hailstorm. I
lighted my candle, went to tho bottom,
and went to work. I had not been

heard a nolso that sounded liko a can

I found myself burled alive. I trem

think of that moment. The roof of the
shaft was rocks, and when they came
down they did not pack so tight but
what tho air came through. Thero was
nothing that I could do to release my.
self. I knew that if relief did not come
from tho outsldo I must perish. No ono
knew I had gone thero. A road.-'run
past the mouth of tho shaft; but It was
not traveled much, and I was' not like
ly to attract attention by calling; never

The following morning I commenced
calling again; and all day, whenever
thought I heard a sound, I shouted.
"When night canio again all hopes of
being released had abandoned me. One
thing added great bitterness to my suf-
feriuge. I owed quite a largo amount
of money, and, should my futu remain
unknown, my creditors would think I
had fled to defraud them, and my name
would bo stigmatized.

would cross the road. I then cut ser.

About threo hours afterward I felt tho

near the shaft had been the cause of
my misfortune. It had been dead a

struok the ground had caused tho cave.

Showing tlio Hoys In Wnslioo
how to Shoot.
Recently, at a saloon on tho Divide,
somo men were discussing tho shooting
affray which occurred during tbo morn
ing between tho two brothers-in-law.
Fallman and Ward. It was agreed on
all hands that U was shocking bad
shooting a discredit to Washoo. At
last a Plocho man bantered a Comstock
man, whom he knew to bo a good
shot with a pistol, to go out In the back
yard with hltn and do some shooting,
Just to show tho "boys" how It should
be done. In tho saloon was a box of
eggs, and what tho Plochcr proposed
was that each Bhoot two eggs off the bare
head ot the other at tho distance of ten
paces, the ono missing to treat the crowd.
Tho Comstocker was bound not to be
bluffed by a man from the other end of
the Stato, so to lift back yard all hands
adjourned. Each, man used his own
six-shooter. Tho Comstock first "bus
ted" his egg on tho topof thePiocher's
head, which exploit was loudly applau
ded by all present. It was then tho
Piocher's turn to shoot, and an eug was
produced to be placed upon tho head of
the Comstocker, but when ho removed
his hat thero was a great laugh, for the
top of his head was as smooth as a bit
Hard ball. For full ten minutes all
hands tried tn vain to mako an egg
stand on his head. It couldn't bo douo.
Tho Piocher than taunted tho Com
stocker with having gone Into the ar
rangement knowing that ho was safe,
The latter told him to set up his egg aud
It was all right ho was there. The
Procher went Into tho saloon, and a
moment after camo out with a handful
of flour, which he dabbed upon tho bald
head of the Comstocker, and then trl
umphantly planted in It his egg, fell
back ten steps, and then knocked it off.
The Comstocker then told him to set up
his second egg and shot at it, as lie
didn't want to have his head chalked
twice during the game. This was done,
and the wreck of a second egg streamed
over the Comatocker's pate. Tho Pio
cher now stood out with his last egg on
his head. The Comstocker raised his
pistol.and fired. Tho Piocher bounded
a yard Into the air, and tho egg bounced
whole from his head. "I've lostl" said
the Comstocker. "Let all come and
take a drink. By a slip I'vo put balf
the width of my bullet through the top
of his left earl" and so It proved upon
measurement. Virginia Enterprise.

With the most decorous gravity tho
