Carried by tiro while horses we
took our departure for the Big Bend
Friday morning, May 23rd, two
hours behind the puck train, notwithstanding the belief of many
superstitions people that this is an
unlucky day. Oar burses beiug
anxious to overtake their mates, we
irttteled rapidly over mouutaing,
through vullevs, jumping logs aud
wading oroeks���shortly catching up
with the puck train, which consisted
ol sixteen horses, heavily laden with
proviaionfl for tho different mining
camps. This made progress slower
beiug obliged to stop often and wait
fof them lo tighten loose packs, keep
the horses from falling off tho trail,
and to keep peace generally, as these
Jndiuu ponies are wild and fiai'd to
manage. We were told that we had
missed a great deal of fun, as they
hud met a bear,- shot at him, and
were just thinking how muoh better
bear meat would taste for dinner
than bacon, when old bruin took refuge in the river, swimming across
We bordered the Columbia river
most of the way, sometimes being
five hundred feet above on the
mountain side and again ou its very
shores; Tho .descents were very
steep and ihe ascents accordingly;
making travel qnilo daugeroUS. Ii
seemed especially so lo me, owing to
my lack of experience with horses
and mountain trails. Our horses
wero very surefooted, however, and
we reached the fifteen mil* point
without any mishaps or thrilling experiences. J. was told thai this was
ihe first camp, but could see hotbing
to distinguish it frsni tho woods End
dells we had just pissed through,
with the exception of one old shack,
evidently erected for the purpose of��
shelter or habitation. Here we
pitched our tent, built a roaring fire
and our CLiiuuUian got dinner, which
consisted of the fattest of bacon,
canned baked beans, ooffeo and herd
tack. This was my first introduction
to the latter article, and while I
should have hinch preferred never
to have made its acquaintance, t
nibbled away as if it were a case of
life or death, beiug thankful I possessed a good sound set of teeth.
My ride had given me a good appetite anl I quite ^enjoyed tills meal
around tho general camp fire aud
listened to tho tales and .experiences
of those who hud mined in tbo days
of '49, and also in Cariboo. To nie
these were very interesting and quite
a treat. We retired about 8 o'clock,
c.nd as it was my first experience
in camping out and sleeping uudor
a tent, I was rather awkward in
preparing for bed. I finally managed to lose myself iu the warm flannel
blankets and slept as well as on any
downy conch. 1 was awakened at
the unearthly hour of 3:30 and informal! that it was time to arise.
Now, early rising was always very
much against my plluciples, but
realizing that I must accustom myself to life iu the wilderness, I put
Itil [iut hobbies aside and followed
Hie halnts of camp life to the letter.
We had breakfast at five (no change
in fare) packed our kitchen utensils
mid dining-room furniture, (this did
not consume much time) aud then
sat around the tiro waiting for the
puck-train to get in rcadinoss. To
oue who had never witnessed an
operation of this kiud it was very
interesting, Aside from tlie amount
of excitement it generally afforded, I
was sitting on a log quite near by,
carefully wtttchlug Bvery detail,
when tho horse that was being packed made a wild plunge, (it was hard
to lull in which direction, but 1
labored under the impression that
ho aimed straight at me) reared nnd
kicked aud endeavored to buck his
pack off���a favorite trick of thoirs;
This caused everyone to soattor without ceremony. It took but u moment for me to put the old shack
between us. During the rest of the
purformande J sought safety ou the
top of the building. Toor boasts of
burden !-their lot is a hard one-
carrying 200 lbs, ovor hills that it is
all a man can do to  climb   without
any enottmbrtSuSe.'
Wo started out on our second days
trip shortly after tbo train left, and,
as usual, our horses were in a hurry
to catch up. Mine went down the
bill on a run, nearly leaving me
hanging on a free behind, fart of
my dress is thero now. The hills
constantly gre'S- SteCpe: aft we journeyed on, and again, in some places
tho nsco ts were so gradual we were
up five to eight hundred feet before
we knew it, and could look dawn to
Ihe roaring waters below aud ut the
snow-lipped pciiks above. The
scenery was magnificent, aud as far
as the eyo could travel ono could
seo snow-capped summits; ranges
covered with majestic pines and
cedars, whoso fragrance was delightful; glaciers that glistened in the
suu light and wero dazzling, ,their
streams forming bfcnutiful Cfsrades
and water-falls as they rushed down
from tho mighty peaks above, dash
ing madly over the rocks cud stones,
end benealh our feet was a green,
mossy bod, covered with ferns,
violets aud wild flowers of every
This was a day full of excitement
at tho poor horses expense. One
black, clurrJsy fellow lost his footing
and pitbhed headlong down H eteep
embaukment, only a log saving him
from rolling into the river. Wo did
not wait to see if any bones were
broken,r,biit journeyed on, soon overtaking a part of the train. They
were also having trouble, so, wo got
off to rest. The horses wore evidently aware of my great fear of them
and took occasion to give me good
cause. One boenmo frightened aud
there was a regular stampede, horses
running iu every direction, and I
with them. I must have cut a pretty
picture as I mads for the woods, not
stopping for logs or anything. Talk
about fust time I I think I made the
best ou record,
Going down oue sleep, sandy hill
I caino very near sharing the ,fato of
the black horso���a large snag extended partially across the {trail. 1
endeavored to urge my horso by, but
ho became frightened and tfas on the
verge of turning around in ft place
uot a foot wide, when I sprang off
ou the inside, my quick movement
beiug all that saved me, By this
time I had become quite lame aud
Miff from my long ride aud I wuh
hardly able- to staud Up, my knees
being so badly cramped, We soon
came in sight of a few lag houses,
aud I was thankful to learn that it
was Carne's creek, cur second camp.
Here we spent tha night iu quite a
civilised manner, occupying one of
the cabins. We had supper on a
table and sat around it ou chairs-
fueling quite respectable aft"r having
lived ou the ground so long. The
view from this point was very fiuo.
I slightly objected te the liberty tho
mice took iu running across our bed,
but suppose 1 should not mind a
little thing like that���women never
Tho noxt day, in order to allow tha
horses to graze; wo ouly made four
miles, pitching our teut at a place
called Strawberry Flat. Oue could
readily seo what gave this camp its
namo, for the ground was coverud
with a while mantle of strawberry
blossoms, which were indeed an
aggravation when one Contemplated
what a foasl they might have if il
wero only a littlo later in the season.
Wild flowers also grew In abundance
and our lunch table (the ground)
was deconltcd with us pretty u centre
piece as ono could wish to see. This
was a charming spot aud we experienced the peace aud quiet which
only comes when in the midst of
nature, and away from the haunts
of man. We had a delightful wade
iu a creek whose waters were an
clear as crystal, and as the day was
warm, it was iudued refreshing. We
were awakened during the night by
some noise, and soon became aware
that laneojiiud of a wild animal was
prowling around our tent, but the
iluilu.ess was so dense wu could not
tell what it was, It took our best
efforts to frighten it away, My feelings in the awful stillness of  the
night I will not attempt to describn.
bet it was with a thankful heart that
t b'elfe'W the ftrst brealr of day.
The fjll)w'irr�� div'-i rile of 1?
milos took us to Downey Creek,
where we were delayed one day bv
ruins, confined to the narrow limits
ofoitrteut. Thhfday was 60 long I
shull not soon forget it.
Wednesday morning found it still
(rlottdy and ihreatening, but we
started out, and with the exception!
I of a slight bail storm wo progressed
nicely. This was tho worst duy of
el&bing that wo had had, at one
time reaching an elovution of somi
1500 feet, where we found the utmns-
phore pure tod bracing, and a
stretch of scenery whose beauties
and grandeur dolled description. On
the very sam-uit of thij miuntain
was the Devil's Garden (I had not
so soon expected to eucounter bis
Satanio Majesty and it was quite a
shock, Lett I wrr, earCfu! net to }et
him know that I was from Chicago,-
so ho allowed me to pass oj) so call-
led ou account of its marshes and
wild growth of weeds, It is also o
great place for the biars. The
ground was covered with ono mass
of dainty white Sowers, studded
hefo and there with beautiful yellow
lilies, and the effect was very pretty.
We reached Gold Stream, cur next
camp, about i o'clock, tired and
hungry, It is surprising what art
appetite tbe mountain uir gives one,-
I can new eat hardtack with a relish,
but riding "straddle" has its drawbacks. This camp did not have tbe
appearance of a wilderness, as did
tho others, for here wo found ��
thriving little farm which supplied
the mining camps with fresh vegetables.
The following morning we were-
ferried across the stream, there beJ
ing no bridge, and we started out on
ourstelh and last days ride. From
here on the trail was bad, the weeds
being very high and slapping ns in
the face at every step. Wo rode
over one place where the snow was
at least 20 feet deep, there having
been a terrible show-slide. About
ton o'clock wo came in sight of twa
log cabins and oue frame building,
situated on the mountain's side, just
above a stream whose rush and roar
was deafening, yet beautiful to look
at as its waters dashed over the
tocks. It was a delightful, picturesque little place, and I was delighted with my new hoiae.
And thus the trip ended, much to
my regret, for I had thoroughly eu-
joyed it, I had been told that a
woman had not been on French
Creek for 23 years, and also that tha
trip would probably make me siok.
On the Contrary I fouul it most en;
joyable, and it is an experience I
shall always look back to with plea;
sure. II one wishes to sees wild,
ruggod country, beautiful scenery,
and have no end of amusing and
novel experiences, aud also make tho
acquaintance of a large family of
mosquitoes and sund-fliei, I would
recommend this trip to then.

A general conversation with our

the Lower Kootenay country for the
purpose of examining the mining
prospects of tlie various camps and
to try and fiad out if a wel'-appoiut-

to watch longer."
This ipeach was welcome enough
fo Joe Benton, for he hud stood on a
rocky point < n the shore of one of

shanty where the party of hunters,
of whom he was ono, were staying,
The hounds had been put ott the't
morning ai usual, but the deer,
which, from the size of his track,
was evidently an old buck, hdd cunningly avoided the lake and taken
tbe dogs a long ohase to some of the
ponds whioh lie Mattered among the
wooded hills.
The rest of the party decided to

tan down to the littlo dock where his
skiff was moored and listened, The
bounds were hoi so Heir ii ts supposed at first, but were descending
one of the low hills that surrounded
the lake and fast approaching the
Joe looked out on the lake and
saw there a sight to gladden a hunter's eyes. Not a hundred yards a-
way a huge buek was ^wtrttrjlcg
klong near the bank; but he had already seen the boy, and instead of
striking out into the lake was skirling tbe Bhore,
There wSs no time to be lost.
Without going hack to get his ride
Joe j'liriped Idtl his bjatand started
to head oft the dee', from tbs land
and drive him iut* the lake. It was
a close race, but the boat wiis light
and fast aid handled bv a good
oarsman. In a few minutes Joe had
the satisfaction to find himself is
tweeu the shore and the deer. The
back tossed his antlers and starts 1
