THE LOST CHILD.
A Kcmlnlaccnce of Southern Orccon.
BY THE EDITOR.
It happened in fifty-five. A heavy
cloud hadSbeen gathering over the set
tlers in Southern Oregon. Tho fame
of the lovely valley lying under the
snow-capped "Siskiyou," threaded by
sparkling streams, covered with luxu
riant grasses, the hiding place of ante
lope and deer, surrounded with hills
that werd yellow with gold had at
tracted attention, and emmigration
had poured fast into the Rogue River
country from California and Northern
Oregon. It was the old frontier story
the White was crowding the Hed, and
the latter were sullen and out of tem
per. Although the Government had
established a reservation in Rogue riv
er valley and made fair provision for
the Indian he was jealous of the en
croachments of civilization; and his
discontent was manifested by the occai
sional murder of a prospector or white
traveller. At last the cloud burst and
it swept over tho out-lying settlements
like a whirlwind of Death. Murder
by prowling bands of Indians had be
come so frequent that the patience of
the Whites was exhausted. A com
pany of volunteers had been quietly
organized, and on the Sth day of Octo
ber,1855, they struck the first blow on
a large band of Indians who professed
the utmost friendship to the settlers.
Those who survived the slaughter has
tened to tho reservation, and persuad
ing the few who were remaining there
lo join them, commenced their work of
retaliation at that point; and then
-.triLing dimn tho river continued it in
their flight and did it fearfully well.
It is at this point our story commenc
es. In July of tho same year George W.
his wife, a daughter about eleven years
of age, and a bright, manly little boy
of nearly nine, had corao" from the
Willametto and settled in a little val
ley through which passed the main
line of tra el, lying about forty miles
North of Jacksonville. Mr. Harris
was a worthy, industrious citizen,
quietly building a home for his family,
who were happy and contented with
the little spot where -their weary feet
had found -rest Tho house, a log
building, was beatifully situated on a
slight eminence in the little valley,
and oa every side,except the South,tho
ground was clear and open. Mr. Har
ris had felled several trees in the vi
cinity of the house, and on tho morn
ing of tho 9th was busily engaged in
making boards from one of them, not
having tho slightest apprehension of
immediate danger. That October
morning had dawned beautifully on the
peaceful home. The throats of the
song birds were bursting with melody
as the rising sun bathed the hills with
mellow light and streaked the eastern
horizon with gold and purple. Slow
ly tho shadows of the tall pines crept
down the westerfa mountain as the
morning woro on, and the unconscious
victims little dreamed that other shad
ows were falling in that mellow Au
tumn sunlight like cruel, hateful things
on the brown sward of tho little val
ley. TJnder cover of a large copse of
willow, just out of range, a band of
fifteen or twenty warriors, with the
warm blood of tho murdered Wagner
family, who lived two and a half
miles to tho southward, yet undried on
their brown hands, stole silently,
stealthily towards the doomed home.
Somo of the fiends were probably half-
crazed with liquor, obtained at the
Wagner ranch, and pressing too ea
gerly for a favorable position for
the attack, which was made at
9 A. M., were evidently discovered by
Mr. Harris. Leaving his work ho
walked rapidly into the house, and
setting his axe in a corner of the room
he took up his shot-f.ui without saying
a word,stepped to the door and endeav
ored to close it Little Sophie accom
panied her father to tho door looking
in his face in a wondering, half fright
ened way, but asked no questions; and
just as they reached the door the In
dians poured a volley of at least a doz
en shots into and through it Mr.
Harris, struck fair in tho breast by a
rifle ball, stood firmly till he had dis
charged both barrels of his heavily-
loaded gun; then staggering backwards
fell never'again to speak to thoso who
so sorely needed his protection. Tho
daughter was shot through, tho left arm
by the same volley that mortally
wounded her father, but the brave lit
tle maiden uttered no cry nor showed
the slightest sign of pain, but bleeding
freely ran up stairs and threw herself
on the bed. It was now that the cour
age of woman "that splendid quality
that turns the fibres of the most del
icate hearts to cords of steel, t. 'at
mocks thc-valcr cfjtlu--JvjBge,7 -?cx,-l
was sorely tried, Mrs. Harris had ob
served her husband's movements, un
derstood them, and at once realized
the situation. For a moment only
was she appalled. Instantly recover
ing her self possession the brave fron
tier's woman took, the weapon from
the grasp of her dying husband, closed
tho inner door, and rushing up-stairs
seized an "Allen's" revolver, which was
lying on the roof plate, and discharged
it rapidly in tho direction of the assail
ants through a hole in the chinking.
The act doubtless saved her life and
that of her daughter, for the; Indians,
who had now made a second rush,
shrunk back under cover of a large
pine tree, -which stood about twenty
paces from tho door, not knowing that
the house had but a single defender.
Fortunately Mr. Harris had prepared
a large number of cartridges for a pos
sible emergency, and perfectly familiar
with fire-arms, his wTifo commenced
loading and firing towards jhe tree,
which was afterwards found to be
scarred with bullets. Changing her
position from up lr down stairs, al
ways keeping one barrel in' reserve,
and carefully guarding all approaches
to the house, Mrs. Harris kept up a
steady fire for five hours, and t"he In
dians must have been convinced, that
the house was full of armed men, for
they never exposed their covardly
forms. Thev returned tho fire, how.
ever.sending bullets through the chink-
ing of the house, filling the room
splinters, but without effect. Just at
two o'clock the Indians drew off in a
body, striking towards the Haines'
ranch about a mile to the westward,
where they soon did some bloody
work. Their retreat took a load from
the mother's heart Strung up to its
utmost tension for five long hours, that
seemed ages, it now relaxed, and she
who had fought like a tigress for her
offspring was now herself but a sobbing
child. Was it strange that tho moth
er's heart should bo bursting? Trick
ling through thatloor abovo were drops
of blood, and Mrs. Harris ran wildly
up stairs. Little Sophie, with her
lips palid from loss of blood, was ly
ing on tho bed in a fainting condition,
and her mother learned for the first
time that she had been wounded.
Carefully bandaging the wound and
applying restoratives her next thought
was for little David. Just before the
attack tho little fellow had accompa
nied Samuel Rowdeu, who lived about
a quarter of a milo North, to his home,
and as neither made their appearance
the mother feared that they too, had
fallen victims. Anxiously she watched,
patiently she listened till the evening
fell and still the child came not; and as
sho watched and listened in vainthe
mocking wind among tho pines seemed
to say to the poor throbbing heartr
"no more for ever." Evemng came
and,rt new danger threatened, JShould
tho savages return .they could steal to
the house under cover of, darkness and
fire it with perfect safety, and Mre.
Harris determined on flight. Taking
Sophie in her arms, and with a sad
parting look at the white face of him
who had given his life for them, she
silently stole from tho house and hid
in the ckappareL
Who can write the memory of that
dreadful October night? Who can tell
the anguish that wrung the heart of
that heroic woman? As the night
wore on and the sky grew higher and
the stars grew colder still they looked
coldly down upon hec as she kept
sleepless watch holding in her arms
the faint and bleeding child
the only treasure left her on earth.
Now and then the stealthy footsteps
of a coyote was heard quite close to
the hiding place of tho fugitives. Ap
proaching: within a few feet one of
them had smelled the blood with
which little Sophie's garmenta were
saturated, and it set up that peculiarly
dismal howl that only a prairie wolf
can make. From point to point it
was answered by others. From hill
to hill the howl gathered and roso and
swelled in melancholy cadences ton the
cold night air till the bereaved and
stricken woman feared they would
gather and tear her and her darling to
pieces. Hours and hours sped by but
the stars seemed motionless. How
that woman prayed for daylight, un
mindful of tho dangers it might bring.
Her thoughts now wert wholly ab
sorbed by tho probable fate of the
handsome, bright-eyed child, who had
and her anxiety was maddening tor
ture. Could sho have known that he
had been killed out-right it would
have relieved the pressure on a mind
already over burdened with horrors.
He might have escaped to hide and
perish from cold and hunger, or bo
torn in pieces by the wolves; ho
might have been captured to undergo
tortures indescribable, and when at
last daylight broke it is only a wonder
that agonizing doubt had not driven
the mother raving mad. Again, the
morning dawned beautifully; again tho
shadows of tho tall pines crept down
the hills; again the song birds filled
the little valley with melody, and still
tho anxious mother watched. Peering
out carefully she saw an Indian in tho
brush who himself seemed to be watch
ing, and sho shrank back again Under
cover. Commanding a view of the
house she soon observed three persons
flight, and she knew that succor was at
hand. Scarcely were tho Indians out
of sight till her quick ear discovered
the sound of heavier hoofs thundering
down tho road from the South, and in
a few moments a detachment of dra
goons and a few volunteers, under
command of Major Fitzgerald, were
sweeping gallantly across the valley.
On came tho brave boys, filled with
vengeance, fresh from" A bdttld at the
ruins of tho "Wagner" place, where
they surprised aiid killed five of the
Indians. On they dashed till nearer
and nearer and Mrs. Harris recogniz
ed their uniforms and rah with" Sophie
in her arms to meet them. Drawing
rein suddenly tho boys gathered round
tho fugitives. Covered with blood,
blackened with powdor, worn and hag
gard with exhaustion, they were hard
ly recognizable, and the Major exclaim"
ed "Good God, are you a white worn
ant" Closer the gallant fellows gath
ered to hear her simple story, quickly
told, and more than one bronzed cheek
was wet with tears that never shamed
their manhood. The pursuit of the
Indians was at onco discontinued. Af
ter attending td the linmediato needs
of tho survivors Tind burying tho dead
Major Fitzgerald ordered a diligent
search for tho little boy, but not a trace
of him could bo found. Subsequently
the Major furnished Mr.- Harkness
with an escort of eight men for the
same purpose. Every ravine, every
hollow, every thicket for miles around
the Harris place -was carefully search
ed, but not even tho child's wagon,
which he had taken witli him, could be
found. Mr. Bowden, who fled towards
Gravo Creek on tho first fire, stated
that tho little fellow had started home
wards before the attack, and the most
careful examination revealed no trace
of his remains in tho Bowden house,
which had been burned. There was
but one hypothesis: the child had been
and carried away, but this
was abandoned. During tho war that
ensued, and long after hostilities had
ceased, captive sqiiaws and strolling
parties of Indians were closely ques
tioned, but they persistently denied
any knowledge of the child. A year
went by and the remains of fl man
named Reed were found on the Harris
ranch, and search was renewed for
Davy, but without result, and still the
pines whispered to the sad and sorrow
ins woman "never and never morel"
Little Sophie, afterwards the loving
wife of John S. Love, one of the hon
ored citizens of Jacksonville, was car
ried away by the fearful epidemic that
scourged that town in 1869, joining
her husband, wio bad preceded her
only a few months. The intrepid
mother, who did a deed as brave as
any ever recorded in ancient song or
storV. became the wife of Aaron
Chambers, and widowed a second time,
lives among us honored and beloved.
Mrs. Chambers often relates the story
to her grand children, Georgo and
Mary Love, telling how nobly their
mother boro her sharo of the burden.
Twenty-three years have passed, and
often, as the evening shadows gather
and the twilight deepens, tho mother
sits sadly and silently with folded
hands, looking down into the still un
buried past, and wondering if in earth
or sky she will find her second born.
o, that has"not sulferel"tan teirrm7mfoeJr'eTjllk ftjboiif 'Cur bo;
thoughts that cling to
tho bitter memory of that dreadful
October day and night? And who,
among us all, can say that when the
great harvest of tho Eternal is garner
ed in, there will not be one little gold
en sheaf that will fill the sad and sor
rowing heart with gladness for ever
"Who Will Help Oar BoTI.,
This is the appeal which comes to
us through tho press. It is an appeal
which shduld awaken an interest in
tho better part of any man's nature, bo
there a spark of manhood left in him.
It is a question of vital importance to
every father and mother, and every
living being who has the interest of
humanity at heart It concerns Hot
only tho family and society of to-day,
the happiness and well being of re
generations. There aro two pow-
1 influences ever at work molding
character and shaping the future
iny of our boys, viz: the family and
ety. It is tho laying a good foun-
ion that tho building is made to
d for many years, so with the
young and tender mind, grasping new
ideas, and building for the future, it is
the first lessons making their deep im
pressions that have to tako root and
live forever. And parents, this is your
.!- ji ..i nv :
nuia iiuufay vuu uwow youi jirr'u!f!LaaBM. 1 a
society, and your God. You aro to lay
the foundation for thoso boys on which
rests the superstructure of future use
fulness. It rests with you whether
this structure shall bring honor or dis
honor to your namo and your houso-
hold. You must bo what you wish your
bovs to be. You must be a living ex
ample, bearing daily witness to a holy
christian life. You must bo their
guide, their strength, tfieir refuge, and
their pride. Example is of far
more importance than precept, for it is
instruction in action. Even children
aro judgosof consistency, ahd precept at
variance with example is worse than
useless it is a sin, and a mockery. As
a father of a family of bdys, how can
you desecrate the Sabbath, profane
God's holy name, drink, smoke, frequent
the saloons and the gaming table,
then consisicntly reprove or condemn
your boys if they participate in the
same YJccs? Think you theso boys aro
so blind as not to be judges of human
action, and are you not weighed in the
balance of thfeir imagination and found
wanting? God forbid that it should
ever be thus, yet it is verily tod true.
Evil associations may, atld doubtless
will, to a degree, corrupt and retard
your good work, but it can hardly neu
tralize the influence in precept and ex
ample of truly christian1 pardnts. Teach
these boys that tho fear of God is tho
beginning of wisdom. Teach them to
bo honest in the broadest sense of tho
word; teach them to bo honorable,
self-reliant, and manly; help them to
build a character and riamd that will
stand the test through all time; and let
them find no better ideal or higher type
of true moral excellence than their
fathers. Make your home as beautiful
and attractive as possible; make it the
theatre, tho school-room and tho
church a place of refuge from care
and toil a home of rest and peace. To
this end parents I entreat you to look
well to your children. Consider tho
fearful responsibility which rests upon
you; the sacredness of your obligations
to them, and their relations to thoso of
the future. Think of what they are to
be. tddo. and suffer, through this
weary pilgrimage oi life; think of the
tempests, tho storms, and the possible
ship-wrecks in the rough and perilous
voyage across the sea of life. Remem
ber that they tffe precious gifts from
God; that they were pure and innocent
ones; that the Great Father entrusted
the compass arid helm of their destiny
to you, and if the frail bark be strand
ed on the quicksands of intemperance
and vice, think of what they might
have been. Every citizen owes a duty
to society, which is to lead a temperate,
consistent, well-ordered life. Every
citizen, too, is responsible directly and
indirectly for his influence befo'rlj ttlcs'd
bojs; and every father to every other
father. What can you expect of our
boys when thoso who claim to bo hon
orable men, our best citizens, openly
and without shame, aro seen by them
to frequent the bar, tho gaming table;
to descrcato tho Sabbath, and partici
pate in other vices tdd numerous td
inuotent, vicious noouiurns, ana won
der at their proficiency in vice in tho
faco of such example. Is it not a
greater wonder that they aro half as
moral, or industrious as we find them
What aro wo to expect of our Bdys
when vice is at a premium t When it is
mow popular to bo intemperate than
temperate? Whentheso fathers and cit
zens say by their very acts, b'oys"; it is
manly to drink with your frie'rids, play
a little game of poker, b"8 independent,'
and have a good time generally. This;
Mr. Editor is tho example which is
placed before our boys by tho majority
of tho citizens oi tills community; iiuS
the daily lesson taught, and repeated
week after week; these are tho seeds
sown which will in the future yield a
bountiful harvest of vice and wretched
ness: I tell you, if theso boys becamd
profligate, reckless and intcrilpe'ftite' iri
the face of so much vice and slri every
one, who by precept or Example iehdd
his influenco thus is, and will b, held
strictly accountable for Ins individual
share in their downfall. How dard
you pull down and destroy what theso
mothers have been laboring for years
to build up and protect? And how carl
you claim td bo honorable' and good
citizens, when by yourexample yon are'
under-mining tho very foundation t

Mr. Editor, strengthened and encourag

and perfect them for lives of future
honor and usefulness.
