By M. QUAD
Copyrlcht, 1913. by Associated Llt-
Well, now, but weren't tvo surprised!
You see, wo hud encountered such n
run of hnrd luck up tit Tolnt Desnnlr
that ouo morning we packed up, bng
nnd bnjrpnge, to tlio last man, and set
off down tbo trnll In search of some
thing better. I well remember tt was
n hot July day, and thero were exactly
forty-ono of us.
Seven miles down tlio trail we came
to what was then called Undo Joe's
road, and right nt the intersection was
whero tho surprlso hit us. An immi
grant family had strayed from tho
main party for some reason which wo
never ascertained, and right nt the
crossing they had been attacked by In
dians. Tho wngon broko down there,
and there tho pioneer made his defense
and fired ills last shot That lie was
game we needed no other proof than
that visible to our eyes.
Tho family had consisted of five per
sons, nnd thero they lay, hacked, rut.
shot, and a shocking speetaclo under
that blight sun and birds singing
around us. It was a horrible heap
which we surrounded, and for n min
ute no one spoke. Then tho astonish
ment and horror of tho men brought
forth deep and angry exclamations,
and amid the rumpus Undo Hen Tur
ner suddenly called out:
"Stand back stand back! Ilere's a
live young un!"
Thero was for a fact. Ilnlf hidden
under tho torn and blood stained gar
ments of its dead mother was a boy
about two years old. What could we
do .with him?
Wo had no kisses, no pet words, no
dainties nor little clothes. Wo looked
from tho baby to each other nnd
scratched our heads, nnd no man know
what another man thought until finally
Uncle Ben called out:
"Boys, It's a token of good luck. If
this hore what d'ye call it don't bring
us a rich find then we've all forgot our
homes nnd wives and children."
That's what wo were all waiting for.
Up went our hats, cheers mndo tho
rocks echo, and tho little toddler was
one of us ono of forty-two.
When we wero ready to go he stood
In tho circle, screaming out as we
coaxed him in turn, but when old Ben
finally advanced the young cub held up
his arms and nestled ngninst his shoul
der ns If ho had found his own true
father. I believe the rest of us were
a bit Jealous, but we were also help
less. Ben had a kind, fatherly face, a
quiet voice, nnd tho boy had only to
look Into his eyes to trust him.
As to the luck, tho old man was
right. Four miles farther down the
trail tho boy pointed to somo flowers
growing off to the right, and right
thero wo halted nnd founded what was
known for years ns Lost Boy Diggings.
It was the richest spot for fifty miles
around, and all on account of "Little
Forty-two," ns we called tho youngster.
As to the boy himself, ho took to old
Ben in such n way that they could
not bo separated.
If Bon wanted a kiss ho got a dozen,
nnd all tho gold In California wouldn't
have bribed tho boy oft his knee. At
night his arm was tho child's pillow,
nnd tho slightest movo of tho young
ster brought the old man's eyes open.
You might have expected that "Little
Forty-two" would dlo on our hands,
living as we did, but ho never had a
moment's sickness. Old Ben had n
wny of preparlug nourishing dishes
out of our coarso provisions, and from
tho clothing found with the wagon
ho was kept comfortably clad. Old
Ben was no dressmaker, and the boy
would have looked queerly dressed In
tho States, but as long as ho was com
fortable wo didn't care for looks.
"Little Forty-two" hud been with us
thirteen months and was to our figur
ing a little over three years old when
some of tho men who had made their
stakes announced their Intention of
going homo. Then tho question arose,
"Whoso boy Is our boy'f" It was a
stumper. Each man felt that ho own
ed a sharo iu tho llttlo chap, nnd each
man would huvo been glad to take him
home. Wo argued nnd discussed with
out avail, and old Uncle Ben sat there
saying never a word, but his faco was
os whlto as chalk. "Little Forty-two"
belonged to tho old man In every sense,
but I bellevo thero would havo been
somo trouble If fate hadn't como stalk
ing up the rocky trail and halted at
This was the way of It: Some wero
packing up and homo using the pick
and bur, and down near tlio creek
powder was being used to blast tho
ledge. It was ubout 10 o'clock iu tho
morning, and n blast had been pro
pared and tho fuse lighted when from
our retreat, full ton rods away, wo
suddenly saw "Little Forty-two" turn
tho thicket and run straight for the
blast. lie was laughing nud shout
ing, hnvlug been pluylng "tag" with
Uncle Ben. Wo sprang up and shouted
and screamed, and tho boy halted with
in ten feet of tho blast nud waved his
cap at us. Next Instant ho was hid
den In tho dust nnd smoke, and when
we reached hl:n somo of tho men sat
down nnd covered their faces. Ho was
Well, that wasn't tho end of it. That
afternoon, after Old Ben had made the
poor llttlo body ready for burial nnd
moaned over It and while we wero dig
ging n grave, the old man went down
to tho Mast, placed tho uuizzlo of n re
volver to his heart and was dead bo
foro tho report reached us. Ho had
lost his boy and found him agalu.

DON'T BE A FAULTFINDER.
An Easy Habit to Aoqulre, but Diffi
cult to Break.
It is very easy to get Into the habit
of finding fault. Nothing can be as
easily acquired ns the complaining
spirit, nnd nothing Is so dlllleult to rid
oneself of ns this same spirit after it
has once gained control over us. Noth

it happens to bo a father who Is af
flicted with such a disposition his home
coming at night is dreaded rather thnn
Popular people are not chronic com
plalners. Go through the list of your friends
for proof of this.
The basis of popularity is a cheerful
heart and n sympathetic soul, and a
carping critic never has either.
