Perilous Adventure of Two Early
PURSUED BY APACHE ETOIAKS.
Haw Bill Williams Boncbt Gold Wits a
Band of MobaTca Attacked by Apaches
They Escaped on a Raft Drifted Kin
Iraya In the Giant Canyon.
It Is years since General Beale told this
story to a parry of friends, of whom I was
one, while xro were seated by a campflre
in the heart of the Sierra Nevada moun
tains in southern California.
Beale, although for years a sailor In our
nary, made fame as an explorer with Kit
Carson, and he made history and wealth In
the early days of the Pacific coast.
"Bill Williams," said the general, with
a sad shako of the head, "has gone with
Kit Carcon, llriilprr, and all the grand
fro!-tiers:uen of the days following; the
Mexican war to the happy hunting
grounds. Irataba died last year, and with
him went out one of the finest specimens
of the red man I liave ever met.
"Like Ouray of the San Luis TJtes.
Irataba could boast that neither he nor
his trilxsmen, tlie Mohnvcs of the preat
.oiorntln, ever nuseu a liana In anger j
agiiinst tho whites.
"I heard this story from the lips of the
chief nrfnr in it and as Hill Williams and
Imtah.! were ns truthful as they were
brave you mar bo sure that the facts are
in no way exaggerated.
"At the timo of which I speak Arizona !
was still a part nf New Mexico, and much
cf that va? t territory was set down on even
our latest maps os ' unexplored.
"The Moiiaves had learned tho value of
frnld, and there were tradtiions in the tribe
that the precious metal could be found in
abundance along the I.lttlo Colorado, par
ticularly i:ear the point where the smaller
river enters tho mighty cajyon.
"Bill Williams' was with the Mohnves
when tho trilw was excited and eager to
search for pold to the north of the San
Francisco mountains. Williams, who had
been adopted into tlio tribo and could
speak tlio language even better than he did
his mother tongue, prerailed on the chief
to verify the traditions bran actual search.
" 'The whites like furs and lish and
venison,' said Williams, ' but tnere is not li
Ing that will so win their hearts as fmld.
To p't p'ld they will live tin all else they
possess and even risk their lives. '
' 'If wo pet Riilri. then the whito men
will sell us all the rillesand ull the whisky
wo want?' said Iraralin.
" 'Yes,' replied Williams, 'and most of
the whito ir.en would sell their souls for
the same ruct.il.'
"Neither Irataba nor any of the Mo
hnves had any clear concept inn of tvlict a
soul was indeed they were inclined to be
lieve that snuls were peculiar to white
men. as such things had never lieen heard
of till tlieconiiii)' of the missionaries many
years before, and these missionaries did
not lonjr remain on tiie arid banks of the
great retl river.
"After much discussion Bill Williams
starred north with Ir.italia rnd a more of
yoi m jt braves. There was nl'dl pimo in
the hills, so that the little hand did tint
burden Itself with provisions. 1 hey lauph
innly said tiier would reserve their strength
to curry liack pold, which they would trado
to the whites at La I'az or Yuma for guns
mid. whisky and it may be for some of the
blue glass la uds of which their women
were s fond.
"The womsn wept when they saw the
younfr men leaving with their tail, liand
Fome chief, fur they well knew that th9
country into which their friends were po
int; was the hunting ground of tlie fierce
mountain A;iaciie, ut this time command
ed by Cochise, a chief destined to make his
name a terror ami to si t ut defiance nil
the available forces of the I'nited States.
"There never had been a time when tlie
Mohaves and Apaches werrj I'.ot at war.
Ihcr wore each other's scalps even before
the coming of the whites, anil tradition as
sociates every hill and canyon in that wild
land with deficit or victory.
" 'Wo are out for gold and not for
scalps, was what Bill Williams nrsred on
the young bravrs when they came upon
rigns that told them the Apaches had re
cently been over the same ground.
"It was the harvest season of the Zunis
and Pueblos to the east, and at such times
tlie Apaches lrfs the mountains and can
yons to despoil their snore industrious
neighbors. The chief and Bill Williams
ilitiv comfort from this knowledge, tine
day they came upon three Apache women
and a mini 1st of children. After tiie cus
tom of tilt ir kind tlie Mnhaves would have
kilied these people, but Williams who was
uu orator, saved the p irty.
'These women saiiltliat all the warriors
were away to tiie east, and t':ev confirmed
t.ii hi-pesf ef tlie pr .. er-tors by giving
them some large nuggets of gold, which
the children had pick.ti up in canyon
lieiir the mouth of the Little Colorado.
Much encouraged. Williams and his
friends resumed their j mrney. AH un
derstood the difficulties that lay before
them. Sterile anesus iiud treeless moun
tains blocked in the horizon, and the
streams and rivers dropped inTcr and low
er into the earth, till from the towering
hanks the turbulent water lx.kol like
threads of waviiig silver far, far lielow.
"Only n bird could cr s tiiise profound
chasm. Men have died of thirst in that
land w iihin sicht of tiie inacces-ille water.
" 'The sold is at tlie im'tom of the c;tn
ynns.' That is what Init.-ilii rnd bis Mo
haves said, and that !" what Bill Williams
believed, and so they dessended to the bjt-
tom of the Little Colorado canyon and
worked their way dewn.
"From the first they found gold, but tt
did not come up tot their expectations. The
El Dorado was lower down, so down they
hurried, till the sky looked like a blue belt
overhead and the sun could be seen for j
but one brief hour in tlie 24. These men,
though accustomed to profound depths and
sublimo heights were awed by their sur
roundings ami began to lose their desire
for gold in their growing desire for light.
"Onecarly morning the canyon was still
black as midnight, hut tho flaming clouds
far overhead told that day had come to the
upper world when the little band was star
tled by hearing fierce yells, like tlie cries of
angered eagles high up the cliffs.
'No need to ask what the cry meant.
Each of these men had heard it of old. It
was the war shout of the Apaches. Up the
canyon walls rang out an answering cry of
defiance from the Mohaves. But the brav
est saw he was in a trap and with aU the
chances against him.
"From the giddy crests of the canyon
wall the Apnches loosened huge rocks,
which came crashing, smoking and thun
Uering down on the camp.
"Five men, nearly half the Mohare band,
were destroyed by that Titanic fusillade,
that seemed to fall from the sky like the
thunderbolts of an angered Jupiter.
"In their desperation Bill Williams and
Irataba used their rilles, but tip to that
time no rifle had been made that would
send a bullet to such a height. But tho
rocks the awful rocks gained in destruc
tive power by reason of their awful eleva
tion. "The only hope lay In flight down the
canyon, which up to this time had never
been trodden by the foot of man. Still
from the cliffs tho Apaches pursued and
With such effect that when tho black
shadows of another night came to tho
depths where tho maddened waters roared
there were but two men left Irataba and
" They discussed the situation and like
brave men determined to fight till tlie last,
though tiie effort seemed hopeless.
"Retreat by tho route over which they
had come was out of tho question. The
only chance was to follow the canyon
down, knowing that it must end in that
stupendous labyrinth of canyons then un
known, but which have since unia7.ed tlio
"Their only food was a little dried venl
Gon. The next morning they came upon
largo quantities of freo gold, but they had
lost their interest in tho precious metal.
'Life,' said tho chief ns they puslied down
the mighty rift, 'is more precious than all
'tin the second day they lost sight of
the Apaches, but as there was no means of
reaching the upper world, wifihout retrac
ing their steps, they decided to, keep on.
"Late on the afternoon of the second day
they were brought to a halt. There were
no longer any shore lines along which they
could walk. The swift current filled ail
tho space between the black, towering
"The next morning they found a lot of
driftwood lodged in the crevices of the
rocks. Some of this drift waa 80 feet above
tho current at this time. Indicating the
height of tho Little Colorado in t he flood
season. Using their buckskin leggings for
cords, they fastened a number of pieces of
timlicr together. They 'had luirely finished
their rude raft when a?ain they heard
Apache yells, and again tho murderous
rocks camo thundering down.
"With characteristic stoicism Irataba
was for dying where they werotrather than
trusting himself to the frailraft, which
Williams stood ready to launch on the un
known waters of the canyon.
" 'If we die, Irutalia,' said the white
man, 'let us die resisting."
" 'But what can weak men do in the
face of nature's awful forces?' asked the
" 'We are a part of nature's forces, Ira
taba, und wo must control tlicut. I iet
nlxiard nud hold on.' That is what Wil
liams said as with his rifle at his back and
a pole in his hand lie cast the raft loose
and tried to guide it.
"The current soon lxiro them out of
reach and hearing of the Api.ches. Accord
ing to Williams' estimate they were now
ut least aoo miles from the nearest settle
ments at tho month of Virgin river and
the Mohave villages were fully 150 miles
farther off and to the south.
"All that day and tho following night
they drifted down between the banks that
appeared to grow higher at every licnd till
it seemed as if they were descending into
the bowels of the earth.
"(In the fifth day of tlvcir flight the raft
was wiiirli'd into the still larger canyon of
the great Colorado. By tlus time ail their
food was gone, and their long watching
and fearful anxiety had weakened them,
though both were unusually strong men.
"A situation more desperate? cannot well
lie imagined. Without food, their cloth
ing torn to raus and their skin blistered,
they were at tlie liottom of the greatest
canyon In the world and being carried on,
whither they knew not.
"Irataba showed that he had lost hope
by lying flat on the shaky raft and singing
the weinl death song of the Mohaves.
From this time on the chief made no effort.
To bis coiiiianton be was worst" than dead.
but brave Bill Williams never gave up, and
let me say it is this spirit that constitutes
the chief difference between tlie white und

A Tragic Incident.
A correspondent ut Bulawayo gires the
following incident: "A rebel, wounded in
the leg. but still capable of mischief, was
on the point of U-ing asscgaied by one of
our fricndlies. He recognized his assailant
ami rem.-j-ked to him, 'I am your hrrher.'
Notwithstanding that the n-eognitron was
mutual, tho friendly stoically replied, 'It
eannot be helped; this is wartime,' and
promptly dispatched his relative."
PEOPLE WHO BUY ANCESTORS.

"There is a regular trade done In old
portraits of men in armor and women
in mediaeval costumes, said a large
picture dealer to the writer. "They arc
brought ty persons who have made their

Alcohol In Cold Weather.
A scientist thus explains why it is so
dangerous to nso alctihol iu the imlar
regions: A moderate use of alcohol
causes a dojaisit of fat. Alcohol ia not
turned into fuel m the muscle and nerve
cells, but serves as a pnrc fuel in the
organism and replaces tho combustion
of f.t. Alcohol is. therefore, daiievroiis

room should bo heated redhot and then

Heat produced by muscular work in the
body is best obtained from curbohv-
drates in the fcod, but, besides this, the
indispeusiblc production of heat is best
obtained by fats. This explains the in
