THE NATIONAL TRIBUTE: WASHING. D. 0.. THURSDAY. APRIL 2, 1896.
They wore not in long before the report of
fire-arms was heard, and Jewell and the
privates came running out, stating that
Gillispic had "been killed; Jewell had
.eeiThit with two arrows. Seeing the
trap IhnJ they were in, it is a great
wonder that any escaped.
The main force was nearing the en
trance to the canyon when they met
Cheney, who gave a hurried account of
what occurred. "We were about 600
yards from the mouth of the canyon ;
all felt sad on hearing the news of the
fate of Gillispic. The commanding
officer could do nothing else but endeavor
to recover his body, if more lives were
Eacrificed. We were drawn up in line,
mounted, and the command was given:
"Count fours." I liave often smiled
at the way this order was executed.

wished to be distinctly heard, and con
sequently raised his voice to high "G"
thinking, I suppose, they would be safer
holding the horses than fighting in the
mountains, never dreaming that if we
were beaten they would never get
out alive. Those not holding horses
vere drawn up in line preparatory to
going into battle; a speech "was made
by the commanding officer, encouraging
every man to do bis duty, etc We
threw off all surplus clothing, and were
to fire off our guns and reload, in order
to be sure of our fire-arms.
Here an incident occurred to the
tvriter that will never be forgotten.
"When firing our pieces my gun burst at
the muzzle; for about three inches it
was split I could account for it in no
other waj than that at camp when I
took the saddle oiF my horse I left the
carbine in the gun-boot, aud when I
threw the saddle down the muzzle pene
trated into the wet sand, forming a plug
of sand to the depth it penetrated,
which was the length of the split. The
carbine was loaded, of course, when I
threw the saddle down.
Everything in readiness to start, the
party was divided into three divisions ;
first division was to go to the left of the
entrance of the canyon aud
SCALE THK MOUNTAIN,
obliquing to the right in the direction
of the canyon $ the second -would pro
ceed to the center, and into the mouth
of the canyon if necessary; the third
division were to proceed to the right of
the entrance and scale the mountain,
obliquing to the left in the direction of
the cauj'on. Lieut Herman Noble was
in comm.'tnd of the party on the left.
The -writer was in this squad. The first
division was a small squad of not over
10 or a dozen, including citizens.
"We marched up the mountain,
bunched somewhat in an irregular man
ner, pulling ourselves up by taking hold
of bushes and rocks, proceeding very
Elowly, my nearest companion being Sam
Johnson, who had served two enlistments
in the Regular Army, and who knew
more than any man in the outfit about
Indian fighting. The higher we climbed
the higher the mountain seemed to be
above us. We reached a point overlook
ing the canyon where Gillispic's body
lay, and up to this time we had not
caught sight of an Indian. A ledge of
rock three or four feet high in our front
afforded us a temporary shelter from the
bullets of the enemy, as long as they
kept in front of us and too high up on
the mountain. We were .entirely ex
posed in the rear and on either Hank we
"were in the same situation as the pro
verbial ostrich, -who, -when pursued, slicks
his head in the sand and leaves his body
exposed. I taid to Sam Jolmson, my
comrade: " This silence is ominous and
iorbodes a storm ; I think we will catch
"You arc right we will, and more
than we can stand," he replied. He had
Fcarcely finished the last sentence when
firing commenced on the right, where the
third division were endeavoring to
scale the mountain. The firing was kept
up quite briskly on the right and under
cover of the firing a detail from the
second division rushed into the canyon
and recovered the body oTTillispie. The
third division being 'repulsed and the
second division having accomplished its
purpose, the recovery of the bod-, the
Indians tinned their attention to the
first divinon. At their first fire they
mortally wounded a citizen volunteer
who was not more thau five feet away

While we were intently guarding the
left, Ham and 1 peered through a crack
of about two feet wide in the rocks that
were shelwring us from the enemy's bul

small cedar trees moving down the
mountain on our left flank. Calling
Sam's attention to it he said they were
Indians with cedar bushes or branches
tied to their heads and moving slowly to
the left and endeavoring to get to the
rear of us, thus cutting off escape en
tirely. While we were so busily en
gaged in watching the left we did not
hear Lieut Coble's order to retire.
The Indians had located us exactly,
and a ball came through the crevice in
front of us and left its leaden mark on
the rock in front of our faces; Sam was
the first to discover that we were alone
with the wounded man, and exclaimed :
"ly God, they have gone."
We could hear them veiling to us to
get out of there ; I was obliged to think
quickly and take in everything at a
glance and not stand on the order of
going out go, or remain and De mas
sacred. There was an intervening space
between where we lav and a hiiiher
ledge of rocks exactly in our rear, in
which I thought I saw a rift or crevice
large enough for a man to pass through ;
the only and great danger was getting to
it, as we were obliged to pass in plain
sight of the Indians through an open
space of 40 yards or more on which there
was not a log, bush, or rock to shield us
from their bullets and arrows.
I sprang to the old man, took him by
one leg and Sam took the other one. We
intended to run with him to the open
space, but he said : "Boys, leave me; I
am done for ; save yourselves." A t once
I commenced a series of ground and
lofty tumbling in the direction of the
rift in the rocks that would put a circus
acrobat to shame. I reached the rift in
salety ana bam at my back, l was
standing in the crevice looking below for
a second only, and Sam placing his hand
on my shoulder exclaiming as he did so,
"for God's sake jump, or we are gone."
Turning my head for an instant I
SAW A BRUTAL SAVAGE
with a rock in both hands, uplifted, in
the act of smashing the volunteer citi
zen's head. Their yells were simply in
describable. I dropped a distance of
about 30 or 40 feet and struck the earth
without injury, and instinctively hustled
to the right, out of Sam's way, as I knew
he would follow at once. Sam came
down without accident more than a
slightly sprained ankle. An accommo
dating shelving rock to the right afforded
us protection. We were safe from any
further danger, and on a level with the
entrance of the canyon.
The boys "were in front with their
long-range carbines, and kept the In
diaus from showing themselves too con
spicuously, and under cover of the fir
ing Sam and I joined the main body.
The citizen volunteer had a son in the
party who was about 25 jTears of age,
who refused to accompany a rescuing
party for the recovery of his father's
body. This fact becoming known to
the officers in command, they decided
not to jeopardize the lives of the men
unnecessarily again by going into the
Indian stronghold, but would linger in
the neighborhood, courting an attack
on better ground.
The column proceeded in the direc
tion we came, and camped on the creek
where we first camped on the night of
the 7th. Here we proposed to stay a
short time, inviting attack, inveigling
them into a fair, open fight, if possible.
We buried Gillispic next day, with mili
taryliouors, at this camp, beneath a Cot
tonwood tree, the winds soughing
through the trees, singing a solemn
requiem for the peace of his soul. We
Temained at this camp for a short time,
but did not succeed in enticing the In
dians from their stronghold. We could
see the evidences of their close proximity
each night by the light of their fires in
the mountain. This is all we ever saw
of them during the Summer.

Here we were joined by other officers
and members of the company, and here
we remained all Summer, with nothing
to vary the monotony of camp life but an
occasional scouting party sent down the
valley looking after stray hoises and
doing regular police duty.
About six or eight weeks after the
fight I was one of a scouting party sent
down the valley after stray horses. When
in the vicinity of where we buried Gil
lispie we visited the old camp, and were
horrified to find his body hanging by the
neck to a tree, with arrows Eticking in
the body almost as thick as quills on a
porcupine. His hair was very red, and
looked natural. His flesh, dried by the
rarified air in that country, emitted no

cut him down, and vburied him again,
and this was the last we ever saw of the
poor fellow. We traveled as far as the
sink of the river, and returned to camn
at Adobe Meadows. The scouting par
ties were never absent from camp longer
than a week or 10 days. The days at
this camp hung heavily upon us. The
bos built " wickiups" out of willow and
thatched them with long grass, finding
them more pleasant to occupy than the
The character of the country here was
volcanic in appearance. You could see
it in the beds of lava aud beds of ashes
and alkali wafer. On the meadow was
a huge pile of rocks, in extent about one
acre, standing about 10 or 12 feet above
the meadow land. The rock was broken,
and had the appearance of having been
shoved up by some mighty subterranean
power, leaving it there as a monument
to the unseen force of the Almighty.
While standing in the ranks at roll
call one morning, facing the cast, we
experienced quite a shock. It' was dis
tinctly felt by all, and we saw the top
of the White Mountains, 15 miles dis
tant, slide oft during the quake, causing
a great and tremendous cloud of dust to
ascend heavenward. Scouting parties
to the White Mountains after the quake
reported the whole top of the mountain
had slumped off in the direction of the

almost unbearable, and we

were simply wild with delight, for "we

Anisette had posed nil, the morning at the
Julian Academy. "When the clock struck
noon she had stepped from the platform
with tho assumed imlifiercnco of an ex
perienced model. It had not licen fatigue
that had made her tremble with eagerness to
exchnugo the close stndio air for the .sun
shine of the Champs-Elysecp. It was Mardi
Gras, Mardi Gras iu Paris that is to say,
the sun dazzled, the river gleamed. th air
sparkled with irresistible hilarity; the very
trees on the boulevard threw out gay little
ribbons of temptation.
Anisette had promised to pose all the
afternoon for George Black wood; but before
that she would have at least one glimpse of
tho revel satisfy her thirsty little soul
with one hastily snatched swallow of enjoy
ment. So sho ran the gauntlet of the
crowded streets, held here, caught there;
cajoled, threatened, pursued, until she es
caped into the impasse off the Boulevard
St. Michel, where Blackwood Jived. She
arrived at the studio flushed, disheveled
and breathless, with her absurd littlo hat
and her shabby velvet capo all powdered
with gold and silver dust.
George Blackwood had been pacing up
and down in a rage of impatience, but at her
entrance he threw himself into chair with
a shout of relic.
"Efifm, Anisette," he cried; "but it is
adorable of you to come to-day."
"Via!" said Anisette, proudly; "I prom
ised I would come. T am here. I under
stand bow much depends upon me. Besides,
I must be in the Champ de Mars as well as
that peacock Celestine, posing for your
friend at No. 25. As for the folly outside,
that is all child' play." She waved her
hand with superb disdain, tossed her hat
across the room and began at once to pre
pare for her pose.
Seizing tho palette, Blackwood seized his
tubes with an unsteady hand. He was a
young fellow, but his 25 years had been all
" sturm nml drang." IIo bad a worn face,
with high cheek bones; his forehead, where
it was visible under the thatch of grayish
blonde hair, was prematurely lined j and
tho eycf, which shone under overhanging
brows, blinked and stared like those of a
cat in the dark. At once imaginative and
critical, he was a victim of that moral

sensibilities, a woman's power of concen

drinking innumerable enps 'of black coffee,
smoking cigarcts as nnconscionsly as ho
breathed, painting early and late, painting
while ho devoured 'his meals; painting
while he slept. He gave himtelf to his art

make no concessions to his divinity, he
would not woo her to come to him, lie would
compel her. Sometimes he succeeded for
the time being, but t&ie bore tho marks of

seemed to him to have a luminous quality,
like a streak of pa!c light. He bud painted
her in an artificial twilight, against a piece
of purple velvet that had been worn into
grays as delicate as the mists over distant
hills at evening. The light hnHied her
shoulders and her outstretched arms in a
thread of gold, melted in the diaphanous
drapery floating about her, and burned lke
a flame in her hair. Tin wings of a great
sea bird hovered behind her.
The shouts from the street below retched
them faintly. Anisette occupied herself with
fancies as bizarre as tho cosl times of the
levelcrs, but she neither spoke nor moved,
and the transfigured purity of her upturned
face was as changeless as a mask of marble.
To Blackwood, as he painted, she was ns
incorporeal as the evening Btnr. He bad
thought of calling his picture that when it
was completed. .
Blackwood talked unconsciously to him
self as he worked ; he painted with shaking
fingers, stopping every now and then to
steady himself, staring at her dumbly one
moment thrilled anew by the beauty of his
conception, tho triumphant sense of power;
the next chilled with tho hopelessness of

joy of creation would pass and leave him
with the nauseating certainty of having
failed somewhere, somehow, by n breath
too little or too much.
Anisette filled the short pnnses with her
chatter a chatter that relieved tho tension
of Blackwood's nerves. He looked at tho
little creature with a softened glance, his
face relaxed from the grimace into which
his nervousness had twisted it.

lost feeling in one of her feet, and her arms
trembled with tho effort of holding them up
raised. She had poed standing from 8
o'clock till 12, from 1 till nearly 4. She was
gratefnl that the February day was short,
but Blackwood, as the light faded, worked
himself i.to desperation. Ife had exhausted
his lube of madder; Anisette's little figure
had grown rigid, it had lost its subtlo deli
cacy of movement.
"Basla!" he said at la3t, dropping into a
chair with a eudde" spasm of exhaustion;
his palette arm ban cramped, his painting
hand was stiff as with cold.
Anisette threw herself eagerly into her
preparations for departnrc. "What wild
schemes of revelry darted into her brilliant
little head, pile but a moment before with
famtnesa and fatigue!

hair, covered Iut worn velvet bodice with

bag with the spangles, and, finally, when
all was complete, stood on a chair in order
to sec herself iu a misty and deprecating
mirror. Blackwood watt-bed her with con

delicacy of his painted figure.
Anisette fctarilcd him from his reflections
by balancing herself on one foot nnd lauding
on the other close to his chair, with one
hand held out in a saucy little movement of
A dark flush monnted into Blackwood's
face. His band made a mechanical journey
to his pocket.
"Only a little a very little," she de
manded. Blackwood's search brought to light one
silver piece of 10 sous and half a dozen cop
pcrj. His sunken eyes blazed at the girl,
who was about to posses3 herself of them.
"That is all I have," be-paid, harshly.
Anisette hesitated, sighing deeply, but her
eyes were riveted upon the silver piece.
"Lend them to me," she said. "Twill
bring them back to you to-morrow, or, better
still, this evening at 7."
"With a sudden, swift sweep, her littlo
hand grasped the coin, and then Anisette,

Blackwood hurled the door to with his
foot. Ho glanced around the room like au
animal, bieathing heavily; his lips moved
into suppressed execrations against l.er,
against art, against the whole accursed city.
Anisette ran nut of tbe dark impasse into
the Boulevard St. Michel. The streets were
crowded, ribbons of colored paper fluttered
from the windows and had caught in the
branches of the bare trees. A Pierrot with
an artist's beard caught her and rained a
shower of confetti over her head and shonl
ders. She snatched the bag from his hand
and pelted him in return, using her elbows
to wedge her way through the crowd.
Sho invested her ill-gotten wealth reck
lessly in a supply of colored bags of con
fetti, which she now proceeded to sell at
exhorbitant prices, with a rattling accom
paniment of sharp jests and questionable
comments. A slim harlequin, iu black and

landing, and her shadow, laden with bun
dles, threw a long, grotesque blackness on
the opposite wall. She swallowed a little
burst of hinghter.

hands were full, so she knocked gently with
her heel. There was no answer, and Anisette,
trembling with impatience, deposited her
bundles npon the floor, and, putting her
cheek against the door, called his name in a
voice that gradually sank to a whisper. An

The light streamed from the great un
shaded window, and Anisette saw in one
terrible, illuminated vision the ragged line
of a knife cut quivering down the beautiful,
paiuiid augel, and stretched at the foot of
his easel a black figure the face like a
white blot in tho darkness, the head fallen
back, with a hole in it, like that other poor
George with the droll American name.
