Wedding Bells
A very happy event took place in
Lardo on Wednesday, October 26th
when two of Lardo's most popular
young people were united in matrimony. The contracting parties were
George A. Proulx, a prominent young
mining man, and Miss Catharine
Fletcher. This being the first wedding
to take plaCe in Lardo made it a most
interesting and pleasing event. The
ceremony took place in the dining room
ol the Commercial Hotel,in the presence
of about forty invited quests—Kaslo,
Argenta and Howser being represented.
Rev. Father Jeatmotte oficiated. The
Irride wa . assisted by her sister Miss
Rhoda Fletcher, who were both prettily
attired for the occasion and F. S. McDonald ably formed the duties of best
man. Alter the ceremony the guests
sat down to a well spread table, to
which ample justice w. is done. Songs,
speeches and dancing was indulged in
until a late hour. The music was
furnished by C. MacDonald of this
town and A. Anderson of Aigenta.
Frank McQuiston ably filled the position of master of ceremonies. lhe
gathering finally dispersed, all joining
in wishing Mr. and Mrs. Proulx a long
and prosperous married life. The
bride was the recipient of many useful
and handsome presents, denoting the
high esteem in which she was held by
her many friends. The happy couple
left on the boal (or Nelson and other
places where they will spend their
honeymoon after which they will reside iu Lardo.
Ira Wetherbee, 7b years of age, and
famous among mining annals as one of
the discoverers of the second largest
nugget ever found in the golden state,
winner and loser of half A dozen fortunes, is working night and day in the
wilds of Trinity county, California, to
strike pay dirt This old man, who has
Bnduredwith stoicism reverses of the
sort which either make or break a
Character, became aware long ago of
the signiticai.ee of worldly riches. He
now wants only what he needs, ami
luxury has become a thing unwholesome'to the man who of old earned
rovallv and spent without care.
Wetherbee came to California fiotn
Massachusetts in  1854 at tbe age of 19,
going from San Francisco to Marys-
ville by boat, thence by freight wagon
to Pentz much, and from there to Dog-
town on foot. After two months of
working for wages at $8 a day he
bought one fourth interest in a claim
on the east bank of Feather river. After three years of steady labor,whieh just
made expenses for the four partners,
about one hundred feet, of the mountain
side slid into the claim, where all were
at work, covering their sluices and al
lowing a hare escape. Indomitably
they renewed work.
While working through the slide they
discovered-that the soil was of a different character and also the gold. The
grouud up the ravine where the claim
was located had been washed gravel,
but the material'm the slide was a mixture of broken red rock, quartz and
red dirt and the gold in much greater
quantity than before was unwashed and
Following this indication they worked
up lo the origin of the slide, aud the pay
kept «etting better, the nuggets running from $5 to $1,500. They hired 11
men to work the new pay and continued in the prosperity of the lucky
slide about two years.
''One morning L walked up to Dog-
town," save Wetherbee, "and while sitting on the hotel porch suddenly
noticed all but two of the men coming
up from the claim. Without saying a
word to me they picked me up and carried me in, sat me on the bar, and ordered the drinks for the crowd, invit
ing mo to drink with them, and
tnen they ordered me to pay the
bill, which I promptly did When
finished at that place, they carried me
to the next bar, where they put ine
through the same ordeal, and so on
until 1 had become an unwilling customer of every saloon in town.
"After all this was over they took me
back to the hotel porch and sat me
" Well, boys, now that you have
packed me all over town and got your
stomach" full of whiskey at my expense, tell me what all this is about.
"One of them said: 'We have found
the daddy of all nuggets, weighing 54
pounds, and worth $10,640.'
"The devil you have!" said 1. "Then
let us take another drink.
"We went down to the claim early
next morning, and arriving at the
cabin 1 saw the nugget jut-t as the hoys
said.    It looked as large as a house,'
Ten days more of work under the impetus of the wonderful strike and the
partners had gathered a little more
than a hundred pounds of gold, the
biggest load they had ever brought to
San Francisco in their monthly trips
with the treasure.
Soon after the pay dirt gave out, and
Wetherbee gave away his interests
and established himself in the hotel
business at Chico. He made money for
sixteen years, when his hotel burned to
to the ground. ,.
Another hotel, which he put up at a
cost of $65,000, suffered a similar fate
after nearly five years of prosperity.
Hampered hy debt, he faced the world
again, penniless, at the age of IS.
He took to the mines again, prospecting on Butte creek and winning fortune
back until the enactment of the debris
law shut him down. Then he worked
through Butte county and Pulmas with
indifferent Buccess. He found conditions changed from those of the early
50s. Mining had become a science and
men were delving deep into the bowels
of the mountains with machinery
For ten years he toiled with a partner, whom he lost by leath. Since then
he has been prospecting with his pies
Gilt partner, Jack Drenau, in Butte,
Shasta and Trinity counties, in the last
of which he is now at work.
That he will make another fortune
may be inferred from hi.s words:
