Fred was a Greenville, and when Smith reached Sourdough for some seven years in over to put the fried cH.~c~ten in the the Yukon country. He went. into car, he struck his head against the that region along about 1905.

After assuring himself that the fried chicken had been saved, ye editor asked Smith if he were hurt. Fresence of mind is one of the outstanding faculties of an editor, any editor. Presence of mind and the precipitation of a logical ques- tion, or a more logical exclamation. That's why editors always have the respect of the world, When we saw that the fried chicken had been saved, ye editor rr0pounded a question. The fact is, that we thought Smith had been knocked cuckoo, but when he wig- glad his ears, we realized that there was some life left. So ~'e asked a logical question. this region to get away from gold mining. I had had enough of it." But, it seems that a gold miner does not get away from gold min- ing. He still has a hankering to i find a lead or a pocket. So even today, whenever Borden has time he does a bit of prospecting in his own community. F~ed said that while in the Klon- dike the most gold he ever races- c;ed from One pan of gravel was seventy-five dollars. He said thut i~ Alaska there were many days when he would pick up several ounces of nuggets in one day's Work, Mr. Borden also snowed the l members of the party a number of Indian arrowheads which he picked uI. around his home.

So we careened over what is left of the road up Genesee way. We stopped at the Hosselkus home to make inquiries as to the place where fossils would be happening to spend St. ]Patrick's day. John Hosselkus directed ~'S to go up to the Borden ranc~ and ask Fred ~orden where to go. S~ we did. Fred Borden, who has prospected for gold all over the Genesee coun- try, had a little patch of fossil rock located about half a mile from his ranch, on the north side of the Genesee Valley. He accompanied us to the place, as he said it would Le hard to find. The fossil patch at this point covered ~fn area not more than twenty feet square. The! same kind of rock a~unde all over the hills in that region, but outside of the one small area, the rocks contain no fossil impressions. It took only a few minutes to load up cured.
