Early History of Cloud County
By H.E. Smith
 The Great Gold Secret
 The next day and the next and the next after that, we kept bringing it up in handfuls—gold circlets and chains and necklaces and ingots without end. But on the fifth day I found the provisions getting so low that I was rather scared, for up here there was no game of any sort, there being no vegetation at that height for the game to live on. So we held a council of war. Our chaps had got the gold-fever so into their blood by this time that I verily believe they'd have kept digging on till they died of hunger; but Seth and I, who were a little cooler, talked them over at last. We told 'em that we'd got enough already to make us all as rich as Jews; that we must all starve if we didn't replenish our stock somehow; that ten to one the "find" was played out (and indeed, none of us had taken a grain all that morning); and that, in any case, the lake was always there, and they could come back and try again whenever they liked.
 So, bit by bit, we worked 'em round, and all started to go back together. We'd hard work of it the first part of the way, for our loads were pretty heavy, and stumbling in and out of the great rocks was no joke, let alone that the five days' work had taken it out of us more than we expected. One of the Spaniards got a bad fall and not one of us but had his bruise to show. But at last we got over the barren bit and found ourselves fairly down among the wood again; and then I began to be jolly, thinking this was the end of it. But it wasn't—it was only the beginning.
