JOHN RUSKIN

purple haze hanging over the sky, and the hills looked lowering and gloomy. And as Schwartz climbed the steep rock path, the thirst came upon him, as it had upon his brother, until he lifted his flask to his lips to drink. Then he saw the fair child lying near him on the rocks, and it cried to him, and moaned for water.

When he had gone a few yards farther he looked back; but the figure was not there.
A sudden horror came over Schwartz, he knew not why; but the thirst for gold prevailed over his fear, and he
