We had wnudered alxiut for several hours, and
the skv which had not been' the clearest in the

searched on as before, for another half hour, and

By this time iTIiad commenced to rain, and we
were anxious to get home, but Sam had dropped

1 in tha world, and we now fouod it difficult to re
cover them. After searching about for near au
hour in the drizzling rain, Sara chanced to come
upon the spot, and having regained his gua and
