Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 096
Description Look at Dore's "Wandering Jew," striding along through forest and desert, always lonely, and possessed of secret knowl- edge he cannot impart. The artist makes the long perspective of tree-tops simulate crosses to reproach Ahasuerus. The same weird effect is given by these poles, and that endless slender wire, stretching over sandy plain and volcano-blasted mountain. The telegraph is protected from the Indians only by their own super- stition. They believe it is charmed, and friendly Indians have come many miles to inform the Mormons that poles were down in some solitude they crossed. They have not dared to touch the magic cordage themselves. The Navajoes would give their wits to know the mystery of the "medicine" which frustrates their best-laid plans, and posts Bishop Winsor and his "merry men" on guard at the Pass, ready any hour to intercept the horses they may have stolen two hun- dred miles away ! They have been foiled so often that, for the present, "the devil a monk would be." One Indian of the Pah-vants rode for some miles beside the Beaver horsemen, leaning far forward on his saddle as he can- tered along, his gay blanket dropped on the crupper like a riding-habit, his long, black hair and the fringes of his leggings fluttering in the wind of his going. But our horsemen soon dropped behind, waving courteous farewells to each carriage as it passed them. The road was rough; volcanic rocks cropping out and jarring us unexpectedly. The noonday halt was made at Buckhorn Springs, where we found but one little house, and at a short distance from it a stockaded enclosure for the animals.51 51Buckhorn Spring was just a stage stop about mid-point between Beaver and Parowan. There is a rest stop at the Spring today on Interstate Highway IS. 96
