Thirty hours with a skunk in a Mining shaft. (search)
Thirty hours with a skunk in a Mining shaft. --The Calaveras (Cal.) Chronicle, of the 19th of January, relates the following story: "While G. Atzel was on a prospecting tour last week, in the neighborhood of Garland's ranch, on "Old Woman's Gulch," he observed a tunnel, and, approaching it, he heard a noise as of miners working within, and proceeded to pay them a visit. When he had ventured through the dense darkness, one hundred and fifty feet, all at once his feet gave way, and h
e thirty hours, two miners passed that way, and heard his faint cries, and rescued him from his perilous situation, made doubly so from the fact that this tunnel is situated in a very lonely, obscure place, no one scarcely ever passing, except Mr. Garland, in the spring time, viewing his fence.
Mr. Atzel said he thought his case a hopeless one, at first, but after praying two hours he took courage, and commenced hallowing and fighting the skunk, which he kept up to the moment of his rescue."
