, employed in such investigations as formed the chief employment of his life, and many of our citizens remember the pleasures they derived from his interesting conversations.

in appearance and manners, and could accommodate himself to circumstances with as great facility as any of the hunters of the far West

saloon at that time kept under that establishment by the Hungarian Count
and Countess Dembaiski
