And, to crown all, Mrs. Coorgc Arclu-i Cod bless her! planned a trip for us If) the logging earn)) at the lop of I he Sierras. We didn't lake our machine, for while 11. is JUKI about the best ever, nothing but. a narrow-gau^e train can ever climb where we; went. We .saw giant pines go crashing down the hillsides, saw them sawed up Into twenty- foot lengths, and snubbed on to flat car:-), and then we climbed on one of those loaded flat cars and made Hie hair-raining run to the valley. The track wound a snake wllh the mountain curve, and so dons another man, with a brand-new ThoimiH Flyer. Maybe thore oC brakoH, o wasn't a hurried s y and foot! The cars slopped within throe, ami a half inches of each other. Oh, It's all right for you folks, but If you had boon there, with a precipice a thousand feet dnop on your right, and a hill another thousand fool high on your left, and a whale of a touring car poking l)s noso right Into your radiator, there would have boon Hevontoen different, kinds of cold chills chasing theniHelveH up and down your splno.

Next, Jim-jams, and the logs wo sat on weaved and groaned, while at about (•very second curve wo saw whore logs passing our way before! had skipped down the hillside. If Mrs. Archer hadn't given us the supper of our lives at. the bottom of the mountain, that ride would have been a nightmare. As It, was, we were just shaken up enough to enjoy the good things. It wasn't necessary to wash up before supper, either, for the humorist In charge of the water tank at River Station thought It would add to our gayoiy If he left, the nix-Inch pipe they (ill the engine from wide open, and of all the soaklngs lhat we received on the l-loochoe Coochoo—or is It Hol.chy Holohy? --railroad was the soaklii.nest. I write more about Tuolumno than any other place, for It, was our destination, ami thorn was more to interest one there. It Is an old-Lime mining camp, and faro, poker, roulette and all the games of chance are going full blast, with doors wide open and no pretense of secrecy.

We loft "Chinese" in the early morning, and within two hours had surely si nick a good imitation of (Jod's country. Jamestown, locally known as Jlmtown, Is a peach of a place, in a canyon, and Sonora, the next place, Is the quaintest old-fashioned burg you can Imagine. Marie Twain and Mret Mario have made this neck of the woods famous, and one wants to remove the shoos from off one's fool, for tho spot is hallowed.

Then it wan that Corley SBVH Heale pulled the krti'e and came toward him. and Corle.y begun shoot- inn. Br-ale had told Corlny that ho would "cut his Clod damned throat. " Coriey had no diatinct recollection of how many times he fired when testifying yesterday. He says he saw Ueale run away toward the road, and then went and caught his mules and afterwards went to Covina and surrendered. Corley was severely cross- examined by Attorney McComas. He was asked why he shot Beale three tiuiGH in the back. Attorney McComas produced the overalls worn by Bf'iilo earlier in the examination and showed that three bullets had entered from the rear and none from the front. MEN WKNT ARMED. Mrs. Elmer E.
