The minister himself that their grievances Woro such As not to allow them to speak to Ono another. Feeling Tho Force Tho scriptures which he was speaking in its direct application to them and not wishing to seem personal in his remarks Tho minister turned his Eyo away from them Aud appeared to ignore their presence Asho proceeded in order to turn attention away from Tho two Sisters in question he selected a Good Christian lady siting in the nearest Pew immediately his left hand Aud apparently directed his address to Hor.

We learn that nearly every resident Tho path obtained a piece excepting Kobert elder who is probably looking about him at present for another cellar to clean out. That the discovery the treasure trove will cause other residents the settlement to emulate Bob and clean out their own collars will not be supposed for a moment by persons who Are at All familiar with the habits striking miners.
