EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
The Great Gold Secret
The first thing we did was to take the gold out of the poor old black man's pack, and part of it among us. The rest of the things we threw away, as we had thrown away our tools long before (for our only chance now was to march as light as possible) and then we set forward along the gully for some time we could her the rascals hanging away overhead, but that died away by degrees, and there was a silence as if the world had just been created and no life come into it yet.
All that night we stumbled along the bottom of the ravine like men groping in a tunnel, sitting down every now and then to rest; but when day came we saw the rocks on each side getting lower and lower, and the great black pit spreading out broader and shallowr, till at last, a little after sunrise, we came out into the forest again. Just then the other black man sat down and put his hand to his side.
"No can go farther, senor!"
I ran up to him, and blest if he hadn't got a big bullet-wound in his side from last night's scrimmage, and the brave fellow had actually dragged on all night without saying a word about it, lest he should keep us back! I sat down and took his head on my knee, and he died as quietly as a child; and we covered him with leaves and left him lying there in the bright morning sunshine, and went forward on our weary tramp again.
It was harder than ever for us now, for we had eight loads among six men, and already I could see one of the Spaniards beginning to stagger and the old Indian trembling like a leaf. Then a horrible kind of fear crept over me that we should keep dropping that way, man after man, till there was only one left; and then—but at that thought I threw up my arms and gave a sort of yell like a man starting up from a bad dream. But Seth punched me in the ribs with his elbow, and whispered.
"Sh!" don't frighten the rest." And I set my teeth and chocked it down. It may have been an hour or two after this—I was beginning to lose all count of time now—that Seth, who had got a little ahead of the rest, suddenly sang out.
"Hurrah!"
We all looked up.
