excursion', I always kept an eye upon
tbe possibility of discovering gold indica.

Oat afternoon, aa I left the booee, goo in
and, Luke, who happened to be abou
at tbe time, told me that be bad seen a
ne flock of quail a short time before
own nrar tbe northeast corner of tbe
ranch. He thought I might bag a few of
them if I were careful.
J uet take tbat dry cut down thar, and
fol'er it up, keepin' an eye to right and
left, and I'm shore you'll eee tbe bird.,
es they're feediog on them blackberries
along the edges of tbe cut."
I knew tbe location of this cut, or ar-
roya, and Dent my steps in tnat direction.
Ileretoforj I had never followed it any
distance, but this time, aa I lcoiel for
tbe quail, I traversed tbe cut to ita entire
length, finally reaching a a point where
it terminated in an abrupt wall, thua im
peding further progress. Tbia wail ap
peared to be a conglomerate of a tough,
bluish clay and round, smooth pebbles,
so closely cemented as to withstand tbe
action of tbe water that flowed over it
during the rainy season. Thua tar I bad
aeen nothing of the qosii, so I sat down
on a little bench of gravel and sand at
tbe bottom of tbe cut, thinking tbat per
haps tbe birds might come along tbat
way before eundow n.
Aa I sat there mentally locking about
me, and in a little while my eye was at
