Abstract:

Mrs. Skaggs's husbands: The sun was rising in the foot-hills. But for an hour the black mass of Sierra eastward of Angel's had been outlined with fire, and the conventional morning had come two hours before with the down coach from Placerville. ... How Santa Claus came to Simpson's bar: It had been raining in the valley fo the Sacramento. The North Fork had overflowed its banks and Rattlesnake Creek was impassable. ... Simpson's Bar, on the eve of Christmas day, 1862, clung like a swallow's nest to the rocky entablature and splintered capitals of Table Mountain, and shook in the blast. ... Princess Bob and her friends: She was a Klamath Indian ... Bob" Walker has taken her from the breast of her dead mother at a time when the sincere voluntary soldiery of the California frontier were impressed with the belief that extermination was the manifest destiny of the Indian race. ... -- Illiad of Sandy Bar: Before nine o'clock it was pretty well known all along the river that the two partners of the "Amity claim" had quarrelled and separated at daybreak. At that time the attention of their nearest neighbor had been by the sounds of altercations and two consecutive pistol shots. ... Mr. Thompson's prodigal: We all knew Mr. Thompson was looking for his son, and a pretty bad one at that. That he was coming to California for this sole object was no secret ... Romance of Madrono Hollow: The latch ont he garden gate on the Folinsbee Ranch clicked twice. The gate itself was so much in shadow that lovely night, that "old man Folinsbee," sitting on his porch, could distinguish nothing but a tall white hat and beside it a few fluttering ribbons ... Poet of Sierra Flat: As the enterprising editor of the "Sierra Flat Record" stood at his case setting type for his next week's paper, he could not help hearing the woodpeckers who were busy int he roof above his head. ... Christmas gift that came to Rupert: It was the Christmas season in California, a season of falling rain and springing grasses ...
