EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
The Great Gold Secret
"Wal, the aguardiente (whiskey) in my flask war a leetle tew strong for him, and he got reg'lar slewed; and when his tongue got loosened by the licker he kim out wi' stich a yarn as whipped everything in Prescott all to fits. He said that when the Peruvian chiefs stampeded from Cuzco a'ter Pizarro took it, a lot on 'em got up among the mountains, carrying their gold with 'em, till they kim out on the plateau of Lake Titica; and thar, findin' the Spaniards close on their trail, they chucked all the gold into the lake and skedaddled nobody knows where. He said that if anybody took the trail from his hut, north and by east, till they hit the southern end of the lake, and then looked out for a big three-cornered rock like a pyramid upside down, they'd jest got to scoop in the mud of the lake whar that rock's shadow fell on it at sunrise, and they'd fine 'nuff gold to buy up all Wall street. Now, we've got money enough to put that job through, and if yew feel like tryin' it, I'm in."
I said "done" at once, and we got our money together, and slipped down the coast to Africa as fast as the Pacific steamer could carry us. The minute we got there, Seth went off into the hills to try and get hold of his old Indian for a guide, while I hunted about for workmen—for this was a job that needed more hands than our own. At last I got hold of two Spaniards—two sturdy fellows they were, and honest enough as Spaniards go—and then a Portigee and two black men. We weren't long in buying our stores and working tackle, and by the time Seth came back with his guide, all was ready and away we went.
Seth was much too knowing a bird to let on what his real game was as long as we were within hail of the town, for if you say "gold" there only in a whisper those blessed Gambesons (gold-finders) will hear it a hundred miles off. So all that we told our gang was that we were going prospecting among the lower ranges, as lots of fellows did every day; but when we were past the old Indian's hut and well up among the hills, so that our chaps couldn't easily turn back if they wanted, he up and told them the whole story. They were rather taken aback, as well they might be, for Lake Titicaca's a good many day's journey to the nor'east, among some very awkward mountains and a good thirteen thousand feet above the sea, if it's an inch. However, a Spaniard (or any other man, for that matter), will go pretty nearly anywhere if he once gets on the scent of gold; to our fellows they spoke up stoutly enough, and will go pretty nearly anywhere if he once gets on the scent of gold; to our fellows they spoke up stoutly enough, and said they were ready to go up to the lake, and down to the bottom of it into the bargain, after such a haul as that; and off we set again.
