(Correspondence of Ien vor News.)
Plattkville, Col., Nov. 29, 1875.
On Saturday evening last our town
was startled by the report that a little
girl, aged about nine years, a twin
daughter ot a Mr. Sutherland, who
recently moved into the neighborhood,
was lost on the plains. It appears that
the child accompanied' her father in
search ot cattle, aud when about two
miles out they found some calves, one
of which had a bell attached to its
neck. The cows not being in sight,
the father directed the child to follow
the calves, which he supposed would
go directly home, while he went in
search of the cows. It was then 4:30
P. M. At about 6 o'clock the father
returned home, and was alarmed to
learn that his little daughter liac not
come iu, but was all the while supposed
by its mother to be with the father.
Ihe alarm was given to the people in
the village and twenty or more persons
went out and secured the couutry for
six or eight hours in every directioo,
but without success, though some.ot
them were out until 4 o'clock next
morning, and two, one a boy of 17,
having themselves beeu lost, did not
reach home until 8 o'clock Sunday
morning. On Sunday" sonic 40 men
and boys on horseback and at least 20
on fool, went out, notwithstanding the
extreme cold, wet wind, but after hunt
ing all day returned unsuccessful.
Again on Monday morning men from
every direction were on hunt, and in
the most sy&tCmafic manner examined a
wide strip of country, from the Platte
to near the Box Elder, and were still
looking, headed toward home, when a
signal gun was heard, by which all
knew the cYiid 1 al been found. It ap
pears the little one followed the calves
i jr a tin e, but, cs they did not go t -ward
home, She became conscious she
was lost. At first she says she wan
dered around; but hearing the wolves
growling around her, started in a straight
course, which took her to the Box Elder
and, without knowing what direction
she was tkiDg, 6he followed the bed of
thejereek until daylight. At that time
she saw trees on the Platte, and staitcd
for them, arriving at the ranch of Mr.
John Beede, .about "(our miles below
Evans, at 10 o'clock Sunday morning,
having traveled constantly for eighteen
hours, and probably a distance of not
less than twenty-five miles. When,
asked it 6he was not frightened, she
said no. She said he wolves kept
close to her heels and snapped at her
feet; but that her mother told her that
if she was good the Lord would always
take care of her, and so she knew the
wolves would not hurt her because God
wouldn't let them. After being kept
at ihe house of Mr. ; Beede "until the
"following day," Monday, she was brought
home as sound and fresh as though she
had only taken a short walk of ten or
