Fort Wayne News, The (Newspaper) - May 7, 1898, Fort Wayne, Indiana t t JACK HONOR I FRANK by Int Lit and I j PART I I ia the early mining days of when rumors of gold in jibe hills were first that Jack Burgitt and Hamilton a partnership out prospecting They had territory to work in for other fields of in California bad attracted most of the and only a few guine mem had punned their faith to Black Beak and scattered themselves along UK of the neighboring reams ta wash the precious metal Burgitt penetrated a men miles into hills and ibc bank of a tiny brook whose showed traces of gold They built at shanty bunks o bench up a rude and then de- to search lor tlo tost They were simple patient geous each owning an j tion io anuses a fortune and return to Ilis oW tome to it Dick had a pretty girl waiting for him in Ohio and Jack longed to be able to assist his mother and lier of younger dren bad met bj accident and of those in the v est had joined fa thear search for gold hard work exhausted resolved to Black Rock and purchases packed them carefully into a basket and started down the street to return to He looked back more than once to see that no one lowed him and be walked in several ferent directions finally striking a straight path that would lead him to bfe destination Dick and Jack invested their check In enough provisions to last another month including a big bottle of very in- different whiskey and a plugs of and then they upon their return having no fears whatever that anyone would care to follow them If we don't have better luck this said as they we'll up stakes and go a bit ther into tho hills If one ol man can two thousan in three weeks to reason there's gold to be an we're jest as ly to find it as anj ene True agreed Dick ically He usually did agree with Jack and that was one reason why got along so nicely together The next morning found them ing more eagerly than ever but the days passed slowly by and their forts were no better rewarded than be- fore We'd best give it up ol Dick would say at times answered his we said we'd stick the month out an so we and whatever Jack decreed was sure to be convincing to his When two had Jack took an afternoon off and went Into the DOLLARS AND A ANNOUNCED OLD BROWN trade for a further supply Of realized they had not been very but were too Know how valuable the littk atoms might be Sc baned the door of their and on the twelve mile walk tc Quint j Brown was m those days the store bank tate saloon and did a thriving business to default of serious tion Inn the two men took their little tog of dust and him to M tossed the upon scales and thea after securing the laboriously figured its value in dollars ini cents while Dick and Jack wMh bated breaths and mark of the pencil dollars a an Brown at length as he i pushed tie paper toward them for con To Dick's surprise he was back within the hour destitute of game but with an eager upon his face that betokened a discovery of some sort lie said hurrying tip to his partner guess what I've without at- tempting to guess the I've seen ol man Hawks goin over to Black Rock with a sack o dust so heavy he could hardly tote it An it's two weeks sense he put two Ean dollars in ol Brown's Dick down upon a rock and gave long whistle of amazement Where'd ye see he inquired Not thirty rods by the edge of the bush Did he see No I out o sight he want no one to see where he come from For a few minutes they each other thoughtfully Then Jack Dick that were the heaviest bag o dust you ever Again there was a period of silence What's we best do asked Hamilton at last I'll tell je was on my mind Dick an you see what ye think of it It's plain that that ol has struck it rich while we're a din away fer a bare livin How would it be to fer him when he back an foller him to his We might strike a spot that'd pay us as well us I the best thing to be replied Dick thoughtfully 0 course it pears like a underhanded act to trail the ol man to his find but we've got ourselves to look after That's jest answered Jack Ij its every man fer himself in this country no help us ef we Thirty-four repeated Jack ia bit that's about seventeen apiece Dick an it a work Rather re- plied Diet guess we'd better give up these ol man try fer a job at else said Brown tossing the a drawer of his safe these hilla re full an no mistake Why half an houi afore you come in I weighed up two o an mights for one man an been thue w work Jack a long breath he ex- claimed why a fortune by itself Who was the Hawks name is quite a old too fer seeli a job I dunno where his claim is an I don't suppose he'd tell mo cf 1 asked him the grocery now ef j c w anter sec how he looks business to give away other an better keep dart what I told j e but I thought how Wd of ye to know there was gold in these yere hills an plenty of It too I Jack with hesitation better try it- another month Dick Jest as yon responded it may as our change yer check said old Brown yell want to trade it They and followed him into the store room There were few loafers about nnd a thin haired anaa was quietly purchasing a baton end tobacco jerked life thumb latter with wink and the their more fortunate rival as as if he were The IT DON'T SUEM SAID JACK don't help ourselves So I'll get back to the trail after supper an watch till Hawks comes along Don't let him see warned Dick or he'll throw you the truck Never jou do the job was the rejoinder and the gram being thub settled each indulged in another drink Jack succeeded in following his man nnd located the claim about two miles further into the hills It waa oddly at the foot of n high rocky pice covered with brush where ft stream issued from the hill and flowed Jn many windings down the valley Old Hawks had built a against the which so effectually protected his claim that our two could sec no possible way of profiting by their discovery The next day they abandoned all work and cat thoughtfully at tho door their shanty consuming so much After that they ud most with one oret the most trifling things Burgitt his pipe and lay upon the grasa hour after hour buried in deep thought while Hamilton made fierce inroads into the navy aa he ant pondering upon a rock It don't said Jack one evening fer that ol roan to be his pile while we're doin not bin responded Dick it don't seem right Some continued Burgitt will light him some day an atick a knife in him an jump his claim Very agreed Dick soberly seen things happen at times The conversation languished here both returned to their former musings only to resume the topic the following morning As a Jack announced ly J in honest Mother allus said that a man aa kep honest would prosper better in the long run But when I think o the ol lady slavin her life away at home to bring up that lot brats an how I could make her if I had the dust I'm most tempted to jump ol claim felf Dick looked at him curiously a ute he whispered hoarsely I've ben o that myself With gold I could go back nn marry Susie Only demanded Jack I couldn't bear the sight o her clear cj es ef I I'd stuck a man to git the Jack moved uneasily upon the grass and turned his back to his partner he said It's near time fer the ol man to make another trip He must hev quite a heap o dust on hand by this time I was thinkin o said Dick softly TO BE CONCLUDED SCHANE 18 IN TROUBLE Ht Left the Army
