DIVORCED IN THE DESERT
I CONC LUDED FROM THURSDAY' DAILY.
During this speech Mrs. Ilatlmwur and
Janet haJ prepared the evening meal; Wil
liam nail plugged up the hole In tlio win
dow with some cast-off garment, and the
family sat down to supper.
Tile silence which followed Mrs. Hatha
way "s speech was broken by Janet, who
'Papa, mamma says we arc going to start
for California in the spring. U that really
"That is really, so," responded Mr. Hath
away. "Yes, dear gjrl, we start for California in
the spring," interrupted Mrs. Hathaway.
"Your further apprized me of his intention
a few days ago, and that settles It. Neither
of us kuows anything about this far-off
country, although the St. Louis papers nro
full of glowing descriptions of the beauti
ful land of flowers and cold. Lots of
Iowa tolks arc going through in the spring,
and I don't miud breaking up and going
West once more."
"They tell me that you can pick up gold
in the rivers and on the roads out there in
California," said William. "I don't believe
that, but I do believe it's a better place
than Iowa; it is too cold here; I don't like
the winters here at all."
"You are right, William," remarked Mr.
Hathaway, "the winters iu Culifurnui are
as mild ns they are in Florida, so Fremout
says, and that is one reason why I want to
go there. It is an old saying that a rolling
stone gathers no moss, I know that it may
be a true one; out I have rolled so lung,
and so often, that I am going to try it once
more, r roiu the little I can glean from
the newspapers, and from other sources of
information, I urn of tho opinion that it is
just the country tor us to go to.
Si'nntr came, and Mav tound the I lath a-
whvs, with two good teams and wagons,
half a dozen steers, two or three, cows, two
saddle horses, and a good stock of provis
ions, on their way to California.
1 he little party had good luck, losing
none of their Btock except the cows, ami

I iug whito men.'! ,
I rota the moment the party crossed the
Missouri river, however, Huthaways mode
of action was new interfered with with
nny degree of success. He consulted
neither Mrs. Hathaway nor any other person.
He made and broke camps when and
wherever ho pleased; watered his stock
whenever lie saw fit, .and sought advice
of no one or nothing except a map and ft
Upon leaving Salt Lake, Mrs. Hathaway
hazarded a suggestion touching it choice of
roads, and William Henry rallied to the
support of his mother; Janet, however,
stood by her father, and the mother nud
sou yielded. Rut Mrs. Hathaway satd:
"As we are evenly divided in our opinion
as to which is the best road, Andrew, I
will yield, as I always do; but I would like
to ask you one question : Suppose I had
not yielded my preference, and suppose
both Billv ami Jnmty had preferred my
word, what would you hare done tinder tho
"What would I have done? Why, my
good woman, I would have gone right on
just as I am lust as if no one were here
but myself, f am at the head of this ex
pedition and it must go my way. I don't
propo'e to take advice trom an old woman
and a couple of children In this sectlorf of
tho wilderness not as the rouds arc. I
don't consider your judgement good in tho
premises, however much you consult au
thorities. I have got' a map and a general
description of tho country through which
wo are travelling, and I am going to stick
to that compass it I never roach Califor
nia." "Why, Andrew 1"
"No, there's no why, Andrew I about It.
It Is common sense decision, and there
can't 1)0 nny appeal. I'll say this, though :
whenever, in your wisdom, you deem my
course of pilgrimage uncertain or unsatis
factory, you can go some other way or
take the back track altogether; and you
may fake tho whole outfit with you. except
tho poorest saddle-horse you can pick out.
Now, I want you to remember, once for all
Vashtf, that I am infernally tired of your
fault-finding and suggestions. I am deter
mined to nave my own wav. Whenever
you want to go contrary to my way, let us
speech dultecl tho wife "Why, the
NEW SERIES-NO. 13.. 4
children themselves are umftzed at you.
And all sobbed bitterly except that obstin-.
ate man, Andrew Jackson Hathaway.
It was several days ' before pertect hur
uumv aL'ain nrevalled In tin Tfntlmwitv
camp, which, however, when it did set In,
lasted until tho party nrrlvod at a point on
the Humboldt desert, where tho Lassen ,
trail intersects that ot tho Carson. V
At this point had congregated aomo forty
odd persons, all of whom but Hathaway
had concluded to tnko the Lassen trail.
Mrs. Hathaway was awaro that her hua
band's map pointed out tho Carson road n
tho one to bo followed. She, however, pre
ferred the Lassen trail fur tho reason that a '
good crowd was going that way; and, fur
ther, because both William and Janet had
besought her to prevail upon their father to
chnngo his mind. Thus fortified", Mrs.
Hathaway approached her husband, who
was seated upon n pile of blankets repair
ing a Drtdlu.
It was a lovely tnorplug iu September,
and all things lu nature seemed to smile.
The Imperial orb rodo up tho eastern sky
and flung Its splendors upon the ninjestic
Sierra which roso like battlements before
it. There was inspiration in tho scene ami
and sublimity in tho solitude tf the vast
landscape untouched by tlio hand of art. "
Mrs. Hathaway opened tlio conversation
by saying, in dulcet tours:
"Andrew, I was just thiukiug, as I irnzed
upon those mairnis:eent elevations before us
of tho greatness of God. I have been In
tho most perfect Jtate of enchantment for
an nour, not only in surveying the mount
ains beforo us and the desert behind us, but
meditating upon the conspicuous creations
of our heavenly Father. I uever felt nty
luueness so much hctore, and, in contem
plation of the mysteries which transcend
the scope of earthly penetration, I recall an
anecdote of our father's, the effect of wlich
has for many years been engraved upon tho
tablets of iny heart I mean the one lie
used to tell of old John Randolph, of Vir
ginia. Randolph was walking, one evening
accompanied by a favorite boy, you remcra
1 0". All at once, arrested
by a magnificent sun set
in that incomparable section of Virginia
known as thy Schmhnduah valley, he vio
lently seized the nigger and said :
"Sam, If any man ever tells you there is
a Ood, tell him that John Randolph nays ho
( The same sentiment seems to take poses
sion of me as I gaze upon the Seirra Nevada
Mountains. Dy the by, Andrew, thcro is ft
man in the party here who has made tho
trip over tho Sierra seven times. Hu call
the mountains betore us the rim of tho
golden valley, but says there is no time to
be lost in getting over them, as the snow
generally commences to decend in October,
and sometimes fulls to a depth of twenty
odd feet. I wish you would have a little
chat with him after you have mended that
bridle, as ho is greatly opposed to tho Car
son road. He says it is nil dust and
"He does, eh f Well, you just tell Mr.
Kuow-It-AU that I like dust anil nlkali,
nnd for that very reason, if for no other,
I am toiiig to take the Canon road. I
half thought your John Randolph story
ond other utterances were u blind to get nt
the softer part of me, but you can't do it,"
replied Ilathnway, roughly.
"Uut," said Vashti, feelingly, "Hilly and
Janet both wnnt to go by the Lassen trail.,
Tho whole party, in fact, st,art off in thut
direction in nn hour."
"All right, let them start; that don't in
fero with iny plans in tho least. My map
directs me to go by tho Carson road, ami
I am going that way if I go alone."
"Then you may go alone, Andrew Ilathn
way 1" said Vashti with unmistakable force
"What 1 you take the Lasen trail and
me the Carson?"
"That is precisely the situation, unlesa
you consent to yield for once in your life,
Mr. Hathway," rejoined Vashti.
"William and Janet, they " ,
"Oo with their mother by the Lassen
trail." added Mrs. Hnthoway.
"Rut you will become the laughing stock
of tho whole party."
"You nro the laughing stock of tlio wholo
party, and I urn heartily ashamed of you."
"Hut this is a serious turn affairs have
taken, nnd you may regret it," said. An
drew. "It is most serious, Mr. Hathaway, and
I regret that circumstances force mo to act
ns I do," replied his wife.
"Then do as I want you to. I would
rather stay right here nil winter than tako
the Lassen trail."
"And I would remain, right here all win- ,
ter and the summer following beforo I
would go one foot by tho Carson road. My
mind is made up; I propose to start in an
heur. What do you say?"
"I say you go your way and I will go
In less Hun nn hour Mrs. Ilnflmway nnd
her two children were on tho Lassen road,
nml A nitron- nwfri do of nn old saddle horsn,
moved off sorrowfully In another direc
tion. Neither party looked back until a gap of
many miles hud been opened, each expect
ing that tho other would yield. At last
Andrew turned his animal about and, to
his utter astonishment, no living object met
his gazo In that vast expanse. His heart
sank within him; great scalding tears
chased each other down Ida rugged cheeks;
dispair took possession of his soul, and
tho miserable man cried la agonizing
"Divorced in. tho desert! My Ood I
what have I done?" '
Then ho wheeled about and pursued his
course, the very incarnation of misery.
Once he turned and rode ft tuilo or two on
a canter the other way. But tho mountain
breezes blow the dust before him, and ho at
times became completely enveloped in
clouds of alkali sand and other sediment- -ary
matter. With nerves and reason almost
shattered he wnnt into camp weary and
alono the first night of the separation. In
the meantime, Mrs. Hathaway and her
children had joined tho party that had
started In advance of them, and had got
along as pleasantly as could bate been ex-
Socted under tho circumstance. William
