Harry and Jack face danger and find adventure while prospecting for gold in the Australian Outback.
"Yes, sir," answered Harry, surveying his inquirer with some attention.
"And you talk of going to Bendigo?"
"Yes; do you know anything about the place?"
"I ought to. I only came from there last month."
"What luck did you have there, may I ask?"
"Pretty fair. I brought back about a hundred and fifty pounds in gold dust:"
"And how long were you there?"
"That is pretty good pay for the time."
"That's so, especially as I made little or nothing the first three weeks. I struck it rich the last week."
"What do you say to that, Jack?" said Harry, turning to his companion; "nearly eight hundred dollars in a month."
"That pays better than being a sailor," answered Jack, smiling.
"I should say it did."
"When do you expect to start?" asked the stranger.
"As soon as we can get ready," Harry replied.
"You are right there. Have you got money?"
"Why?" asked Harry rather suspiciously.
