Telegraph orders promptly attended to.
It is a Bultry day, early in July, and
tho sun is going westward through a
fleet of white, wind driven clouds that
Bend a host of deep shadows sweeping
and chasing over tho wldo prairie.
Northward tho view is limited by a
low range of bluffs, destitute of tree or
foliage, but covered thickly with tho
summer growth of bunch grass. South
ward, three miles away at least, though
it seems much lass, a similar range,
pierced here and there with deep ra
vines, frames tho picture on that side.
Midway between tho two ridges and
fringed with clumps of cottonwood and
willow, a languid stream flows silently
eastward and is lost with tho valley in
tho dim distance. Out to tho west in
long, gradual curre the southward rango
veers around and spans tho horizon.
Midway across this monotono of land
scape, cutting tho etreant at right an
gles, s hard prairie road comes twist
ing and turing out of ono of the loith

dip to the ford among the cottonwoodg

Siour nation, which, one year previous,
was ki tlfo midat of tho maddest, most
successful war it ever waged against
tho wbito man. That was the centen
nial year 1873. This its another ovent
ful year for the cavalry 1877; for be
fore the close- of the summer even the
troops so far to the southeast are destined

its trio of alert, though often apparent

"You would know better than L for

the broad brim of his campaign hat
down over his eyes. "What do you

"Nothing new. Bless the dear old

rise upon tho air, a littlo dust cloud
sweeps out from tho ravine into which
disappears tho Sidney road and comes

with which it travels toward them.
