IT WAS HIS OWN CHIIjI).
A Ttomuntlo nnd Touching, Hut Itntlier
from lit San Franeltco Call.
My name is Anthony Hunt. I am a
drover, nnd live miles and miles nway
upon the Western prairie. Tlicro wasn't
a house In sight when I first moved there
my wife nnd I, nnd now wo have not
many neighbors, though thoso wo hnvo
are good ones. Ono dav, nbout ten years
nco, I wont nwny from homo to sell my
fifty head of cattle fine creatines ns I
ever saw. I was to buy Bomo groceries
and dry goods beforo I cumc back, nnd,
above nil, a doll for my youngest Dolly.
Mho had novcr hnd a storo doll of hor
own only rag bahlcs her mother had
Dolly could talk nothing else, nnd
went tlow n to tho very gato to call after
mo to got a big ono. Nobody but a
parent can undcrstnud how full my ml ml
was of thnt toy. anil how, when the cat
tle wcro sold, the first thing I hurried
off to buy was Dolly's doll. I found n
largo ono, with oyes thnt wou'd open
anil shut when you pulled n wire, and
had It wrapped up in paper and tucked
it under my arm, while I had thcnarccls
of calico and dclalno nnd tea nnd sugar
nut up. Then, late ns It was, I started
for home. It might lmvo been moro
prudent to stav until mornlmr. but I felt
anxious to get hack, and eager to hear
Dolly's praises about hor doll.
I was mounted on a stc.tdy-golng old
horse nnd piotty well loaded. Night set
In before I was a mllu from tow n, nnd
fettled down ns dark ns pitch whilo I was
In tho darkest bit of roml I know of. I
eould have felt my way, though, I re
membered It so well, and when tho storm
that had been brcwlut? broke, and ocltcd
the rain in torrents, 1 was flvo miles or
maybe six miles from homo.
I rode a fast as I cotdd, but nil of a
widen I heard a little cry like n child s
voice. I stopped short nnd listened I
heard it again I called nnd it answered
me, I couldn't sec n thing, All was ns
dark ns pilch. I cot down and felt
around In tho grass called ngain, and
again hoa answered. Then I began to
wonder. I'm not timid, but 1 wns
known to bo n drover nnd to lmvo money
about mo. It might ban trap to catch
me unawares and rob nnd murder me. 1
am not superstitious not very; but how
eould n real child bo out on tho prairie
In such n night, at such nti hour? It
might bo mytu than human. The hit of
n coward that hides itself in most men
honed Itself to mo then; but onco moic
l lionni tlio cry, ana said l:
"If uny man's child is horcabouts, An
thony lluut is not tho man to let It die."
I searched again. At last I bethought
mo of the hollow under tho hill nnd
groped that way. Sure enough, I found
the littlo dripping thing, that rooaucd
and ftobbod ns I took it in my arms. I
called my hnrso and tho beast came to
inc. and I mounted and tucked tho little
tioakod thing under my coat ns well ns I
could, promising to tako it homo to mam
ma. It seemed so tirod, and pretty soon
cried itself to sleep on my bosom. 'It hnd
slept thcro over an hour when 1 saw my
own windows. Tlicro wero lights in
them, and I supposed my wife had lit
them for my sake; but when I cot into
tho doorway I saw something wns tho
matter and stooi' still with si dread fear
of heart flvo minutes beforo I could lift
tho latch. At last I did it and saw the
ropm full of neighbors and my wife amid
the in weeping.
When sho saw me sho hid her faco,
"Oh, don't toll him," sho said. "It
will kill hltu."
"Whnt is it, neighbors?" I cried.
"Nothing now, I hope what's thnt
you have In your arms!"
: "A poor lost child," said I; "I found
It on the road. Take it. will youn rvo
turned faint," And I lifted tho sleeping
thing and saw tho faco of my own child,
It was my own darling, and nono other,
that I had nicked up on tho drenched
road. My little child had wandered out
to meet papa and tho doll, while- tho
mother wns at work, and they wore
lamenting her ns ono dead. I thanked
Heaven on my knees before them. It is
not much of a story, neighbors, but I
think of it often in tho nights, nnd
wonder now I could hear to llvo now u l
had not stopped when I heard tho cry for
help upon tho road, hardly louder than
a squirrel's chirp. That's Dolly yonder
