A few minutes later Silver Camp Xynos swept out of exist Eure by tire roaring Waters. Trees logs Aud were tumbled from posit o is. And washed Long with irresistible Force. The hats were demolished in an instant and loft floating on the bosom of Tho turbulent Stream. Bill Saunders stood perched upon Tho rocks looking intently at the Camp patiently waiting to discover the form of the one a who Luid Loli cd him of his wealth. But he looked in vain and Usilio Xvi cock of tic Village swept Down 91rc.nu, the old Miner left Liis station 011 the rocks Aud mechanically followed it still keeping Liis eyes riveted on a certain place. The other minors did not miss Liis presence and lie ran through the Woods alone muttering inarticulate words to him Elf.
