THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO. TUESDAY, MARCH 7, 1882.
THREE NTJGrGETS OP GO-D-BY MBS. M. A. DENISON. Life bad gone bard with Jobn Moriarty. In the year 18 he started for the great Western gold fields, full of faith and confidence in himself a steady, pure-minded, honorable man, willing to work hard if he only could better himself, and help his family to a higher plane. His wife ; little Matty, who was lame from her birth ; Gerald, a boy of ten, the baby, Louise, scarcely two years old ; and Mary, the tall, capa ble girl of fifteen-rail these, with the wife who had patiently borne her share of the toil and fatigue conse quent on poverty and peculiarly hard times, he left behind him, and set his face toward privations and dangers with a resolute will. How hard the life was during the first year no pen can portray. He " lived in a miserable hut tenanted by three or four rough men, who, having no family ties, could not appreciate his position. They were hardened in dissipation, and sometimes he was aroused from his slumbers by their quarrels, at others called to use his influence between man and man at deadly feud with each other. All these things the little family never heard of. Once a month Marv ml went to the postoffice, and found there a letter, that seldom came without an inclosure sometimes a small draft, sometimes a quantity of gold dust or gold flakes, that were easily converted into money. This, with work that Mary and her mother did, kept them from want, though they were still very poor. At the expiration of a year, Mary's mother died suddenly. This was heart-rending news to send to Cali fornia ; but when, a few months after ward, Matty followed her mother, Mary was on the verge of despair. The baby was given to the care of 4m aunt, and Gerald found a place where he was insufficiently paid, but which he was only too glad to get. Mary went to live with her aunt, who -.really could not afford to support her, and though she was kindly received, she knew that she was a burden. One day Gerald was busy in the small, mean office in which he was em ployed, when he was surprised by the entrance of his sister. She looked pale, and her eyes swollen as if she had been weeping. ' What is the matter, Mary ?" was hi? first exclamation. I have a letter here from father," she said. "He has sent a little monev, but not much. He writes wTith great hopefulness, however, about lie prospect of finding gold. He says the country is delightful where he is located, and only wishes we were there; if we were he would never come back." ''Then he doesn't know ?" said Ger ald, slowly. "No; when he wrote this, at least, he had not received my letter. Gerald, I have about made up my mind that 1 will go out there." "You ? and the boy turned round in blank astonishment. "Yes ; Uncle is going, and Aunt Hannah thinks it would be a good thing. I could keep father comfort able, and perhaps earn something ; most women do. I could wash and Iron, or cook ; I am so strong, you know." "Don't go, Mary; I can't spare you," said the boy, and his lip quiv ered. "But you are to go and sleep at Aunt Hannah's if I do ro ; that will be nice, for you can be with little Louise part of the time. Aunt Han nah thinks I should do perfectly right to go thinks I can be of great ser xice to father- and so do I." It was some time before Gerald could see the matter as she saw it. He wanted her near him, that he might confide to her his little trials. He wanted her encouragement, now that mother was gone the mother he bad loved so dearly. But the prom ise of a new suit of clothes, which Mary thought she could manage for him, by buying the cloth and making them herself ; the anticipation of the letters he would receive, and the promise that if father and she could snake a home there they would come or send for him and the little sister, tended to reconcile him to the pros pect of her departure. At last all the arrangements were made, and Mary set sail with her uncle for the golden shore. This was long before the great railway was built, and when all sorts of dis eoniforte were incident to a journey of that kind. But the brave-hearted .girl was not easily discouraged. She was the life of the little company, putting aside her own cares and griefs to lighten the burden of others. Many and many a day of vexation and weariness intervened before Mary saw the rough wails of the shanty where her father lived, and when at last, weary and exhausted,she reached it, it was only to find her father sick and delirious. The miners men with red shirts and rough, uncared-for hair and beards had given such rude attention as they could. The room in which he laid was all in disorder, the windows were dim with smoke and grim. It was a disheartening prospect to the poor girl, and nothing lightened the dreary scene save that the rough oc- j heartily glad to see a woman in their midst. Their delight was genuine, and uncouth and bearish though they were, they tried in many ways to aid her. In a few days, even though occu pied as she was with watching and nursing, the dreary cabin assumed a comfortable appearance. Wherever water could be used, Marv cleaused and beautified. The dingy windows looked bright again, and the wonder ful hills, full of verdure, could be seen in all their glory, through the once o bscured panes. Among the miners recently arrived was a young man of rather more re finement and culture than the rest. Perhaps Mary's presence saved him, for he was so impressed with her gen tleness and refinement that as soon as he left his work he repaired at once to the cabin, to see if he could be of any service to her. When the fever was at its height he was by her side soothing the sick man, keeping him in his bed during his fits of delirium, and giving Mary hepeful assura nces that comforted, if tliey did not create hope. One morning the miners had all gone to their daily toil. There had been no fights since the young girl had come among them, and perhaps they drank and smoked less often ; at all events, they did these things away from the cabin. Mary sat at the side of her father's bed. The miner had passed a rest less night, and was sleeping lightly, muttering, by fits and starts, in so low a tone that Mary could not catch the words. Suddenly a slight noise aroused her from her reverie. She turned toward the bed. Her father's eyes were wide open, and he was looking at her, quietly and intelligent! v. "Father ! O I'm so glad cried Mary, in a low voice , checking the up-springing tears. "Where am I ? This is the same place, but how came you here ?" he asked faintly. "I have come to take care of you, father." "Ah, yes ; I've been very sick ;" he tried to lift his wasted hand. "But what made you come ?" "I wanted to come so much that Uncle John brought me." "Uncle John ! Is he here ?" "Yes ; he has been here several times to see you, though he works a long ways off." "And your mother and the children, how did you leave them ?" For a moment it seemed to Mary as if her heart stood still. Had he never received the news ? If so, what should she say ? "Mary, child, why do you look at me in that way ?" he cried, trembling from head to foot. "I see that some thing dreadful has happened, or you would not be here." "Father, father," sobbed Mary, fall ing on her knees by the side of the bed. "I thought vou knew I thought you received the letter." "And it told me of your mother's death ; was that it ?" Mary sobbed, her face hidden in the pillow. Presently he found strength to put his hand on her bowed head ; his voice was weaker. "Nevermind, darling, I shall see her soon." "And leave me alone? O, father!" "Mary, I want you to listen to me while I have strength to speak," he continued, his hand falling to his side. Before I was taken sick I found three nuggets of gold." "Yes, father." "Three large nuggets of gold," he repeated, looking at her bewilderedly, "and I put them I I hid them the soul died away, though his lips still moved. Mary placed her ear to his mouth, but all she could distin guish was the word "nuggets." "O father, speak again !" she cried. "Father, don't leave me ; don't leave me here alone!" " Vain the appeal. There was no an swer. At the day's close the rugged miners stood about the bed, looking sadly at the corpse, and at the poor girl who was weeping at his side. Not long after, there was a quiet wedding. Mary had found a friend and protector in the young man who had come from Maine. He took her to a little cabin that had recently been deserted, and the two formed plans for bringing on Mary's brother and little sister. But it was not destined so to be. One day, Mary, in looking over her father's rough mining garb, found a pocket-book, enclosing a small diary ; and in reading it came across the following memoranda : . "Found to-day, two small nuggets of jrold. . "Found one large nujrret -independence! Buried gold at the foot of the red cedar tree in Dead Man's Canon for safe keeping. Start for home next week." That was all. Poor Mary read it again and again with many tears. It must be true then, and not the result of a disordered fancy, as she had thought it. She could return to the old home, claim her loved ones, give them her care and affection, and edu cate them as her father wished to do. Her husband shared her hopes, and acquiesced in all her plans. It was very easy to find the gold, and it did give them what the poor miner had longed forcomparative independence. Since then Mary had passed through more or less of the vicissitudes of life, but she is known beyond her own fam ly and social circle, and has nobly done her part in the world, for God and truth, and the right.
