Drop That Whip!

Billy was right; the driver who was a poorly-paid half-breed Mexican had had enough of driving goats, and he was going back home and tell his master that a man came along and stole his goats from him; but not until they had had a terrible fight, which ended in his assailant throwing him into the lake for dead.

Button climbed up a tree. . .

He saw a large white goat was loitering behind as if looking for a chance to escape. But every time she did so the man who was driving them gave her a cut with a long-lash whip.

“Did you see that man strike her?” asked Billy Jr. in an angry voice. “He has struck her for the last time, for I shall break his back and butt him into the lake.” Like a shot from a gun Billy Jr. darted down the road.

San Francisco to Oakland to Sacramento!

“Let us cross the bay to Oakland as soon as we can. Perhaps the quake will not run under the bay and we will be safe if we can reach Oakland.”  And the three ran down the street keeping together this time, for they knew every-one was too excited to pay attention to them.

———-

“All aboard for Sacramento and the far east,” called the conductor, as he swung himself onto the train as it moved slowly out of the depot.

“Now,” said Billy, “we must follow the track the train is on until we get out of the city and then we will be all right, for there will be only one track running east.
