This   camp, is a good place to'go'to'if,
the side channels of the river, and
Fred dropped a few "damns out of; the
cutter by way of encouragement'' to
the" buckskins, who did not seem to
be in-sympathy with the driver -, in
his ideas as 10 the direction iu which
we  were' going. " , ,    .
.-Camp four is'five or six miles- up-
the Elk from camp three, and the
road is liot quite as'- smooth as-P iv-
erside drive in New York, but- if' is
smoother than it was before the 1'^k
boys opened ft up. .'■"",
. Camp four is a board camp, and
don't look so good to real, uiuiher-,
jacks as the old-styled, log house.. \.
About ,forly men'are at work at
2a*i.p fciir, and here.they are getting
out some fine logs..' After a' short
stay at that camp, we* turned,, ,,the
ponies heads back in the direction.of
Ferine, and there was not ..so much
need of the damning process.
After', taking, lunch at the Hotel
llosmer with genial-Jii'lius-Hurrel, we
added,variety to the , trip by"driving
up the gulch-a mile to the workings
of -the Pacific Coal company's new
mine. -, , , '.,;■*
Air. Brown could, not get away
from the office lo accompany us,.but
gave us" the freedom of the hole in
the 'ground, and we used it.
.There wasn't _. anyone about the
nioutli of thai big. hole, to .give us a
lamp, and ; Kred was uot in perfect
harmony with the idea of, going . in
without a head 'light, but as- we
could see some faint ,ittle glimmer
of light far away iu the dark, which
looked like the glimmer of mid-day
stars from the bottom of a hundred
foot well, he concluded 'to follow the
kid, aud so he did.'
"At the '!'face" we found ten or
twelve men busy as, bees, some" shoveling waste rock into the cars; some
thumping^. big^pieces of the loosened
rock, with .sledges, and .some- working
air-drills, which made a tremendous
racket as they .pounded away at -'the
rock drilling holes for blasts.- All
these men wore open lamps on their
caps, aiid looked at from, a-distance,
they: resembled « what we used to
dream''of as gnomes working away.in
the bottomless.pit. Hut they were all
lient.on' battering, the face of that
tunnel, and didn't take much notice
of us,- and. we got,,out'without; being
hurt or hurting .anybody. " , " *-
The weather' had been on its, good
behaviou's ever ' since we had left Fernie,' but it began to lie ugly nowi' and
as we came .home it spit snow into-
our faces-all the way. We were..back
in 'Fernie at-four o'clock, the day
after, leaving, after- having-_ seen .the
largest and .best built,.and kept,log-.
