Stnart came round there, too, after &
Tery brief interval for changing his
clothes. Naturally enough, he was anx

The yonng soldier had a word or two
alone with the little bride in the room

this time Aggie had got the fluffy hair
tolerably dry and had endued herself
afresh in her pretty little morning dress
with the pique waistcoat. She looked
really charming. Angns Stuart thought
he had never seen her quite so sweet be

"Well, shall I speak to him?" Angus
And Aggie, drawing back, made an
swer very low : "Oh, no, not for worlds !
Ton mustn't! How could you?"
But the soldier was fortunately of
bolder mold- With a resolute face ho
went up to Philip.
"Jklight I have a few words with you
alone, Mr. Gilman?" he asked quietly.
Phil, half expecting what -was corn

Jhe two men went out together on
the Thread veranda.
Angus Stuart cleared his throat. It
was an awkward subject to tackle, but
there was no avoiding it.

Miss Oswald has had almost time to
change her mind meanwhile." He said
it a little anxiously.
"Well, no. Perhaps not quite that,"
Angus answered, with a faint smile of
pleasure, "but, you see, Tve had it in my
power to render her "today a slight serv

"Precisely my desire," Phil murmur
Angus Stuart ,caught by instinct at
the faint undercurrent of intonation in
his singificant words.
"To act honorably?" he repeated.with
a tone of abstract inquiry. "You put
it on those grounds, then?"
"I do perhaps, "Phil answered, catch

to mention it. But Angus Stuart gave
her an easy lead.
"Well, your trouseeauU do, Aggie,"

What with the ringing and the far

song, Private O'Halloran failed to hear
footsteps approaching mitil they sound
ed quite near.
"Halt!" he cried, seizing his rifle
and springing to his feet The new
comer wore the insignia of a Federal
captain, seeing which O'Halloran low
ered his weapon and saluted. "Sure,
scr, ye're not to mind me capers. I

As O'HaUoran talked he kept his eyes
"Sure, sor," ho went cn, "you stand
too much in tho open. They had ono
muddlehead on that post yesterday;
they'll not put another there today,
sor. " As he said this the big Irishman
seized the captain by the arm and gave
him a sudden jerk. It was an uncere
monious proceeding, but a very timely
one, for the nest moment the sapling
against which the caplain had been
lightly leaning was shattered by a ball
from the Confederate side.
" 'Tis an old friend of mine, tor,"
.said O'Halloran; "I know 'im by his
hand writ in. They had a muddlehead
there yesterday, sor. I set in f nil sight
of 'im, an he blazed at mo twice ; the
last time I had me fist above me head,
an he grazed me knuckles. 'Bcdad,'
says I, 'ye'ro no good in yer place,'
an when he showed his mug I plugged
'im where the nose says howdy to tho
eyebrows. 'Twas no hurt to 'im, sor; if
he seen the flash, 'twas as much."
To the left, in a little clearing, was
a comfortable farmhouse. Stacks of fod
der and straw and rens of corn in the
shuck were ranged around. There was
every appearance of prosperity, bat no
sign of life, save two bluebirds, tho pio
neers of spring, that were fighting
around tho martin gourds, preparing to
"There's whero I was born." The
captain pointed to the farmhouse. "It
is five years since I have seen the place."
"You don't tell me, sor! I see in The
,Hur'ld that they call it the civil war,
but it's nothin but oncivil, sor, for to
fight agin yer ould home. "
"You are right," assented the cap

wouldn't be surprised to hear of him

OX THE CONFEDERATE SIDE.
Three men sat in a gully that had
once been a hillside ditch. Their uni
forms were various, the results of acci
dent and capture. Ono of them wore a
very fine bluo overcoat which was in
queer contrast to his ragged pantaloons.
This was Lioutenant Clopton, who had
charge of the picket line. Another had
on the uniform of an artilleryman, and
his left arm was in a sling. He had
come out of tho hospital to do duty as a
guide. This was. Private John Fam
brougb. The third had on no uniform
at all,"but wa dressed in plain citizen's
clothes, much the worse for wear. This
was Jack Kilpatrick, scout and sharp
shooter Happy Jack, as ho was called.
How long since the gully had been a
ditch it would be impossible to say, but
it must have been a good many years,
for the pines had grown into stout trees,
and hero and there a blackjack loomed
"Don't git too permiscus around
here," said Happy Jack as the others
were moving about. "This ain't no fan
cy spot. " He eased himself upward on
his elbow and made a swift but care
ful survey of the woodland vista that
led to the Federal lines. Then ho shook
down the breech of his rifie aud slipped
a long cartridge into its place. "You
see that big poplar over yonder? Well,
under that tree there's a man, leastways
he ought to be there, becauso he's always
hangin around in front of me."
"Why don't you nail him?" asked
"Bosh ! Why don't he nail me? It's
because he can't do it. Well, that's the
reason X don't nail him. You know
what happened yesterday, don't yo
You saw that elegant lookiu chap til
came out to take my place, didn't yo
Did you see him when he went back?
Lieutenant Clopton replied with ;
little grimace, but Fambrongh said nev
er a word. He only looked at- Kilpat
rick with inquiring eyes.
"Why, he was the nicest lookin man
in the army hair combed, clothes
brushed and rings on his fingers. He
was all the way from New 'leans, with
a silver mounted rifle anda globe sight. "
"A which?" asked Fambroagh.
"A globe sight Set down on yourself
a little further, sonny," said Happy
Jack. "Your head's too high. I says to
him, says I,-' Friend, you are goin where
you'll have to strip that doll's step
ladder off 'n your gun and come down to
business,' saysX I says, says I, You
may have to face a redheaded, flannel
mouthed Irishman, and you don't want
to look at him through all that machin
ery, savs L "
"What did he say?" Fambrough ask
"He said, 'I'll git him. Now, how
did he git him? Why, he come down
here, lammed aloose a time or two, and
then hung his head over the edge of
the gully there, with a ballxight spang
betwixt his eyes. I went behiad the
picket line to get a wink of sleep, but I
"I fit he m wcx.'

"Weir, dog my cats : xonaers h xmp
standis right out in front of me. It
aia-'t the Mickey aelthor. I'll see wht
f he"!s up to." He raised his rifle with s
light swinging movement, chirruped to
it as though ut were a horse or a little
child, and in another moment the dead
ly business of war would have been re
gained, bfct Fambrongh laid his hand
ob the sharpshooter's ana.
"Wait," he said. "That may be my
old mas wandering around out there.
Doa't be too quick on trigger. I ain't
got bet one old man."
"Shucks!" esclaimed Kilpatrick pet
tishly. 1 'Yon reckon I don't know your
old man? He's big in the body an wab
bly in his legs. You've sp'iled a mighty
purty shot. I believe in my soul that
chap was a colonel, an he might 'a' been
a general. Kow that's funny. '
"What's funny?" asked Fambrongh.
""Why. that chap. He'll never know'
rou saved him, an if he know'd it he
wouldn't thank you. I'd 'a' put a hole
right throughliis gizzard. Now he's be
lind the poplar. "
"It's luck," Lieutenant Clopton sug
"Maybe," said Kilpatrick. "Yonder
ae is agin. Luck won't save him this
iime." He raised his rifle, glanced
down the barrel and pulled the trigger.
Simultaneously with the report an ex
pression of disgust passed over his face,
and with an oath he struck the ground
with his fist.
"Don't tell me you missed him,"
"Xise what?" exclaimed Kilpatrick
scornfully., "If he ain't drunk, some
body pulled him out of the way. "
"I told you it was luck," commented
"Shucks ! don't tell me. Luck's like
lightnin. She never hits twice in the
Kilpatrick sank back in tho gully
and gave himself up to ruminating. He
j leaned on his elbows and pulled up lit
. tie tufts cf grass and weeds growing

j looking across toward the poplar, sud

"It's a message," said Kilpatrick,
"an here's the answer." With that he
raised bis rifle, dropped it gently in tho
palm of tis left hand and fired.
"You saw the hankcher jump, didn't
you?" he exclaimed. "Well, that lets
us out. That's my Mickey- He wants
tobacco, an I want coffee an tea. Come
watch mo swap him out of his eye
teeth." Then Kilpatrick went to a clump of
broom sedge and drew forth a wallet
containing several pounds of prepared
smoking tobacco and a bundle of plug
tobacco, and in a few moments the trio
were picking their way through the un
derwood toward the open.

In 18G0 Mrs. Susan E. Menifield of
Americus, Ga., made some remark to
her churlish husband, who, by way of
reply, commanded her to keep silent,
declaring as he did so that the very
soand of her voice was distasteful to
him. "Very well,"ahe replied, "you
shall never hear the' hateful sound
again. r ' The husband imagined that the
hasty vow thus taken by his wife was a
pettish fieak that would wear off as soon
as she "gotover her pouting spell," but
he was doomed to disappointment. The
day, the night and the week passed, yet
Mrs. Merrifiold neveruttered a sound.
When the weeks lengthened into months,
thehusband and relatives became alarm
ed and remonstrated with tho good lady,
but all to no purpose. She continued to
act the part of wife and daily directed
the. affairs of her household by making
signs and by occasionally writing on a
slate kept for that purpose.
She even bore three children to her
husband after her peculiar vow of silence
was taken. Finally the husband sicken
ed, and when it was known that the
physicians in attendance wero getting
ready to announce the hopelessness of
his case it was imagined by all that she
would renounce her vow and speak to
the dying man. He dven pleaded with
her to say ono word before ho died,
whereupon she took the slate and wrote :
"I cannot, I cannot 1 God forgive and
help me." Finally, in 1891, aftor al
most 31 years of continued silence, it
came her timo to die, but sho died as
she had lived for the third of a century,
