EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
The Great Gold Secret
"Here's somethin' civilized at last by hoe-cake!" says he. "Guess we've struck the right track without knowin' it. Look here."
Just in front of us was a gully forty feet deep, through which ran a small stream, and across it lay a bridge—not one of the rope bridges you see in Lower Peru, but good solid wood—two long beams from bank to bank, with cross-pieces lashed to them, just like the sleepers on a railway. Then we all shouted at once and stepped out to cross it; but, all in a moment, the poor old Indian, who was one of the hindmost, lurched over the edge and went slap down into the water, and the gold he carried just sunk him like a stone.
Whether he'd got hurt in the fight, too, or whether he was just tired and dizzy like the rest of us, I can't say—but down he went, and we never saw him more. So now we were cut down to five, and had lost our guide into the bargain.
"That's a bad job," says Seth' "but never mind, boys—we must jest steer by the light of natur' now. Whar thar's a bridge like that thar oughter be a trail somewhar."
Sure enough there was a trail, and we tried to follow it, but we soon lost it again, and tramped on all day at hap-hazard, trying to steer by the sun.
Toward evening we halted to eat, and then pushed on again hot foot; for that was the last of our provisions.
Just as the moon rose we came upon a gully with a bridge across it, and there we all stopped dead and looked at each other—a look I shall never forget. It was the same bridge that we had crossed twelve hours before!
That minute's one of the things I never like to think of. There we were, lost in a tropical forest, our guide gone, every man of us as weak as a child, and not a morsel of food left!
"Well, boys," says old Seth (who was our mainstay throughout), "we're in a kind of fix, thar ain't no denyin' it. Naow, I calc'late this bridge ain't bin long built by the look of it, and so, in stead o' losin' ourselves outer everybody's way I guess we'll jest stick here till some party picks us up—it won't be long, I reckin. That's my idee; how does it strike yew?"
