where the Indian children sing a new

It was many moons ago that I wrote
you of my successful not "royal"
progress through the great valley of the
San Joaquin. Where the journey ended
near the southern extremity, I will
resume my tramp, and tell you that
over that same railway line another
train bore mc from the level plain into
the canyon of Calicntc Creek, into the
Tchachapi Mountains, around a hun
dred rocky bends, beneath a hundred
frowning cliffs, amidst a hundred oak
clad hills, and over the scene of one
recent and scarcely completed disaster
for only two days before the creek,
made a river by brevet, tore down the
narrow gorge and swept long sections
of the road-bed into the valley, or
buried them in the sand. A large force
0 men were at work repairing tlin road
and battling with the Mood, and our
train and two others that had been
delayed, each drawn by two large loco
motive:) made especially for this moun
tain grade a couple of them the big
gest in the world mocd slowly and
safely on. In this canyon is a little
town of the same name, Caliente,
chiefly noted for being the hottest place
in California in the summer. Hut it
also has a mild atmosphere of romance
lingering about it. A few vears ago,
Kicardo Muriieta, a noted Mexican
outlaw, a nephew of the famous Joaquin
Aluriiej, and the hero of one of Ned
liuntlinc'.s blood and thunder novels in
which he figures under the sobriquet
of Red Dick, collected a gaHg of
fifteen other desjieradoes and raqmioi
and raided the town. The citizens of
liakersfield, in the valley below, gave
pursuit and caught five anil lynched
them ; Red Dick unfortunately escaped
and added other crimes to his bloody
record. One of the unfortunate five,
a half Mexican, was an acquaintance
of mine and had once been a com
panion during a long trip in the Sierra
Nevada Mountains. In this Caliente
affair he was a kind of Dog Tray, but
suffered the extreme penalty for depart
ing Irom the "straight and narrow way.'1
In these degenerate dajs no such deeds
arc enacted ; the bandit rides on his
raids no more ; the revolver and deadly
bowic arc tuned into pruning hook and
shear, and the dove of peace broods
erer the land. When we arrived there
the inhabitants were rejoicing that
their town had escaped the fate of
Hcrculnneum and Pompeii of being
buried "full fathoms five" beneath the
earth. Houses had been surrounded
by the flood, immense sand ridges
piled up where streets had esisted, and
the railroad track was covered several
feet deep. The main line was cleared,
but workmen were still engaged exhum
ing the side-tracks.
But probably there is nothing on this
mountain road to which more interest
attaches than to the world-renowned
"loop" which the road makes. The
grade is as steep as the law allows for
a broad-gauge, 1 16 feet to the mil).-, and
the difficulties encountered were great.
To reach a desired altitude at a certain
point it was necessary to tunnel through
a mountain, and, coming out on the
opposite side, construct a grade en
tirely around it, making a complete
circuit ',nd crossing itself above the
tunnel. This was the first "loop" ecr
-- made on any road, the idea being
original with the engineers who sur
veyed this line, although there are
others now in Europe and elsewhere
After reaching the summit we weic in
the Tchachapi iss proper an arm of
the Mojave Desert, it might be called,
for one sees nothing ahead, behind or
on either side but bare lulls, and sand
and cacti and few scattering bushes
and plants. At the town of Mojave,
on. the edge of the desert, we change to
the Atlantic and Pacific line, and travel
almost directly eastward into a region
of deathjea autumn, where spring has
not been known to tarry in twenty
cere of year ; the first ir of aborigi
nal eyes that looked upon it when the
wofkl was younger would Uow it now,

houses built by the i.iilroitl company,
and all of them, in keeping with
nature's programme, arc alike- alike in
iie, mlor, style of airhitci tun, and
position. 'I here are a few small vil
lages along the line, and in one of
them some csthciir person was trying
to encourage a sirkly-looking ornamen
tal tree to grow in front of a small,
rough shanty, Life In such a dreary,
monotonous country must be robbed
of ever) pleasure, sae the hope of be
ing able to get out of it,
There was no general change in the
landscape during the whole day, the
only variations being in unimportant
details. The road followed a winding
valley all the way which was sometimes
a mile or less in width, but usually ten
to twenty or thirty miles wide.
Knell side was bounded by a chain
or rough, broken mountain spurs, abso
lutely vcrdutclcss from base to crown,
presenting precipitous walls on every
side and pointed by jagged summits,
every individual jutting elevation of
which was distinctly outlined against
the sky. The valley or plain was
mainly a vast lied of coarse sand and
gravel, but was marked here and there
by long black streaks of lava, like those
to be seen on the leeward side of
Hawaii and on the slopes of Halcakala.
Some of them were half buried in the
sand, and others were easily traceable
for many -miles. Occasionally the
monotony was slightly relieved by Iwld,
rocky buttcs, standing solitarily or in
groups, and detached from the moun
tain ridges. Some of them have been
carved into odd shapes by the elements,
and are not the least interesting of the
objects to lie seen on this aide which,
despite the seemingly illimitable stretch
of barren country, is not totally without
interest. A few isolated hills or sharp
edges of rock having less clearly sculp
tured outlines than the buttes spoken
of, were scattered here and there, and
some of them had the appearance from
a distance of small luffa volcanoes
(many of which are to be seen in the
Hawaiian Islands) but were much
eroded on their eastern tides. Occa
sionally these elevations are only
broken strata of rock one edge of which
promiues irom me level valley or
gentle slope skirting the base of the
ridges, at an angle of about forty-five
degrees, presenting a nearly vertical
front to the west and a slanting surface
on the opposite side. The most no
ticeable feature of these ridges and
peaks is the variety of colors displayed.
Patches of brown, maroon, gray, and
black are spotted and seamed with
irregular blocks and lines of purple,
yellow and red, the last-named in every
shade from the faintest to the deepest
tint. Some of them indeed have a de
cidedly crazy-quilt appearance, and the
effect is not unfrequently grotesque in
the extreme. One may fancy that he
sees scores of strange figures graven
into the rocky walls like so many deep
intaglios, or standing out in relief like
cameos or statuettes and clad in the
greatest variety of styles and des.
Many of the shapes are so ludicrous
that one will smile involuntarily, and
perhaps be awakened from a dreamy
revery with a start, and wonder if he
has been laughing aloud at nothing,
tike a hysterical lunatic.
Itut the jagged mountains and scarred
ridges now began to recede until they
became confused masses of coloring in
the distance, and the plain followed
close upon their heels until its diame
ter was doubled or trebled and nothing
but a wearisome expanse of barren
sand and lava greeted the vision. Sud
denly wc observed a narrow sheet of
water miles away that glistened like
polished silver. Rapidly growing more
distinct we could easily distinguish the
form of a beautiful lake whose glassy
surface was dotted by numbers of
miniature islands, seme of them covered
tu the water's edge with bushes, droop
ing willows and tall pines ; others were
merely broken ledges of rock that sup
lrtcd no vegetation whatever. The
shore-line was mainly covered with a
dense growth of timber, interrupted
nere ana mere by snowy sand beaches
and acres of waving rushes. A sail or an
Indian canoe was half expected to
emerge from among the little archipela
goes, but nothing appeared to mar the
beauty of this charming bit of scenery,
which was so welcome after the long
ride oer the desert. Accidentally
glancing back over the plain we had
traversed, more "purple lakes, isle
gemmed and deep" were seen, and in
one of them, on the horizon, where the
edge of the sky rested on the earth, the
visible end of the railway track seemed
to be submerged. Certainly no other
lake had been passed by (or through),
and vet the shore, the water, the
islands, the shrubberv, the little bays
and thread-like inlets were distinct in
every outline. While still admiring
this jxaceful panorama the lakes and
forests suddenly disappeared in the
sand, only the islands, denuded of their
verdure remaining, in the forms of
rocky knoiU ; and all agreed that the
mirage u nature's most successful

idgc of Death Valley was only thirty
miles north of us, and that bones,
household implements, and poitions of
the wagons of immigrant j who perished
there early in the "fifties" when trying
to reach California overland, are still to
be seen ; and on that desolate waste the
stranger, in the dryest and hottest part
of the year, when drops of water are
more precious than golden dollars, is
constantly deceived by the most beau
tiful mirages imaginable, and even after
being several times cruelly victimised,
will believe that he at last sees runnini!
streams, tree-shaded ponds and crystal
lakes, so real does the delusion seem.
Perhaps some of those who perished of
thirst In that valley of death wandered
about in search of these non existent
rivers and lakes, like chasing will-o'-the-wisp,
till they sank exhausted and
delirious in the scorching sands and
breathed their last while seemingly
lying on the very margin of one of these
tantalizing and illusory bodies of water,
where the coveted treasure might be
had in abundance.
Can death in more horrible form be
pictured by the mind ? And the desert
valley or succession of vaHcys through
which the railroad passes has likewise
witnessed many scenes of suffering and
death; one-might tramp over its arid
wastes of stone and sand for one hun
dred miles and not find the shade of
tree or bush or a moist spot of earth ;
and one hundred miles in ante-railway
times when half-starved oxen or horses
were the means of locomotion meant
several days of travel. The vvli&le
region reminds one of an ancient
cemetery of vast proportions, and werr

and vigilant ' cacw, hiclf presented
armed fronts of .barberi-spincs to every
point of the compass, and a few sapless
shrubs which would be considered
parodies on vegetation in a verdant
clime. In the heavens above us no
thing was to be seen but, a few-'cirro-cumuli
clouds that had wandered away
from their accustomed haunts and
floated lazily along in the sluggish
upper atmospheric currents ; but they
were for ornament, not use : a clothes
wringer couldn't have been made to
squeeze a drop of moisture from any
of them. Some were mere diaphanous
bits of vapor, but others were lieautiful
snowy masses, and the sight of a host
of white-winged seraphim could not
have been more gladsome to the eye.
Hut the most pleasing effect was the
play of color on the rocky ridges, due
mainly to the slowly-moving cloud
.shadows. These wonderful chances of
shade and tint have already been al
luded to. On the level ground there
were no bright shades of color to be
toned, but there the shadows were the
only things endowed with motion.
It was the nearest approach to life
visible; and like shapeless ghosts of no
thing describable they tardily crawled
over the stony plain. It is true that in
the western end of the valley ortion of
the desert, through which we passed in
the morning, an attempt at life was
made by the Mojave River (called
"river" by courtesy because it has no
opposition). It came into the desert
with the greatest confidence, but very
soon became discouraged and grew so
small in volume that it could scarcely
drag itself along. After a time it
stopped as if half determined to turn
back, but, making a supreme effort,
dove beneath the sand and reappeared
a mile further on, but wasted to an
inch-deep rivulet ; then taking one look
at the lonely region yet to be traversed,
sank in despair beneath the white,
glaring, eve-distressing surface of its
own sandy bed, to be. seen no more
again forever, Some scientists claim
that it finds its way through subter
ranean channels to the Colorado River;
and others, of local renown only, aver
that it goes straight down to " kingdum
Of animal life native to the desert
there was none. All day long we had
looked in vain for a sign. Even the
animals of the semi-arid regions of the
west were wanting. Not a single
jackass-rabbit folded its long cars to
scurry lar away o'er the windswept
plain ; not a ground lizzard, not a
rattlesnake, not a horned-toad scam
pered, wriggled or waddled over the
sun-browned earth. No sound was
heard but the moaning of the wind.
All the day it had been traveling like
a hurricane to get out of the desert;
and when the train stopped it would
hang around the cars and sigh and
whistle and shriek as if appealing tor
assistance. At one place where the
valley became narrowed to a ravine,
fronted on either side with beetling
clUfe, it could be heard above the
ekek and clatter of the car wheel,
h?wtwig, yelling, groaning, watting and
moantag among the craggy heights like
a ihiwund paw racked
Were this region habitable, and peopled
b) a race as imaginative nn tho Hawaii
aiis, these weird sounds would un
doubtedly become the foundation of a
beautiful and soul-harrowing legend.
Hut they do not add greatly to the
pleasure of the rule. ICvcr)thing is so
unearthly that one turns away from the
window and feels constrained to throw
ones arms about the neck of the
nearest fellow passenger. In the
writer's case the "next neighbor" was
a lady, but unfortunately neither young
nor handsoufc ; and he allowed his
emotions to be controlled by n second
and more discreet thought.
Hut there arc samples of animated
nature in the desert all imported
however. Wc stopped at a station
called Siberia, for a moment, a small
place consisting of the tisual double
roofed section house and a clothes line.
Two or three unhappy exiles were to
be seen; but why they were sent there
we did not ask. Their hardest work
seemed to be keeping out of the wind.
The next station was llaidad. Who
hasn't read of Hagdad ? We saw the
old caliph sitting at a window. He
was in a meditative mood, and was
thinking of the struggle between the
Infidel and the Faithful under El
Mahdi, in another and greater desert
far beyond the sunrise. The caliph's
mule wandered at a distance amongst
the short grease-brush, sweetly dream
ing of other and happier days when he
had regaled himself on the toothsome
thistle, the succulent nettle, the horse
tailed soaproot, and other ingredients
of the fat of the land. May it be
many weeks before he is awakened to
the nightmare of the reality I At an
other station, a budding village, a
single Indian was the center of an in
quiring group of pale-faces. He was
attired in a much-worn captain's uni
form of the regular army, and hanging
from a string about his neck was a
calico bag, from which he drew a large
envelope containing a document signed
by a lieutenant of the First (J. S. In
fantry, stating that his name was
George Washington, that he was a
peaceable Indian and was on his way
to California in search of a niece that
had gone there with other Indians.
He belonged to the Mojave tribe. We
saw more of them at the Needles, near
the bank of the Colorado Kiver, which
place wc reached-at dark) TheNation.;
takes its name from 4 few pointed
rocky buttes that rise near by. The
Mojave Indians farm a portion of the
land along the river bottom, which
they irrigate during dry weather. In
planting they use only the agricultural
implements nature gave them. Corn,
pumpkin, melon and other seeds are
dropped in the sandy soil and stepped
on and pushed down into the ground
with the toes, besides irrigating, and
erhaps weeding once or twice, they do
no other farm work till the crops are
ready for harvesting. At one lime this
tribe like the Apaches, and the mixed
tribe of Apachc-Mojaves was hostile to
the whites and murdered many im
migrants, but were so severely ha'ndled
by the U. S. troops a quarter of a cen
tury ago that they have never taken the
war-path since. They are not so war
like naturally as the Apaches, but as a
rule are good-natured, nearly always
laughing, and when walking together
may frequently be seen with arms
around each other, or hand in hand,
like the Hawauans. They work for
the whites, and are employed on the
steamers that ply between the towns
on the Colorado River. They have
long, coarse, black hair reaching to the
shoulders in braids or tangled masses
arc tall,' some of them good-looking,
and have the swinging, beast of-prey-like
tread jieculiar to the redmen. In cold
weather they wear cheap "store
clothes," but in the summer time their
raiment is Edenic in its simplicity,
The diseases and vices contracted from
their white brethren arc lessening their
number yearly, but they are happy and
titdding goodbye to the Needles
and to the Mojaves (pronounced Mo-ha-vays)
we "passed over the river"
into Arizona. Of the surroundina
country nothing could lw seen. Jt
might have been a paradise, and it
might not. At the first little station
that detained us everything was wrap
ped in the quiet of death. Looking
out of the window on the opposite side
of the track from the house I could
see nothing, hear nothing not even
the faintest sigh of the wind, for it had
gone to rest 1 was alone in a section
ofpne of the cars, and for all that
could be seen or heard, alone in the
world. There was nothing to indicate
that the desert had been ussed Not
a sound of life was tu be heard. No
prairie wolvei squatted on their fcklc
bound haunches and sent their doleful
ululations into the moonless altitude ;
no pacing night-hak' lonely crie
came down through the night from
those tame gloomy heights; no ground
owh. raised their dismal, can" from
neighboring hillocks; no cricket
chirped in tkat heerthles region. AH
