Gore was a well-born, well-trained
younjg fellow who had enlisted in the
ranks. of tba regalar army at a time
? when penniless and discouraged, as
has many another son of a good family.
He* seemed peculiarly attractive to
this boy. " Tad admired Gore because
- he was cb;erer than the others. Gore
was a better shot and a better horse
man, and he was the best wrestler iu
. the fort.- And there is nothing that
3o appeals to the soul of the boy as
ability in that close struggle of
athletes, that embrace of gladiators,
out of which com es the triumph of tho
uuarmed hands, the victory of the un
aided muscles and skill. V
- And Tad's father, the captain, had
not discouraged an association which
gave his son pleasure and seemed to
make'the lad more manly.

"Sergeant, are you afraid of her?"
"I'm not afraid of anything alive,"
said the sergeant, calmly.
"If you are not afraid, why don't
"We don't do all the things we dare
"JKhat, for instance?"
"Well, I dare tell Higgins, when we
get to camp, that I won't mount guard
"Then why don't you?"
- ."Because it is my duty to mount
guard whenever he details me. He's
the orderly sergeant."
"1 saw you throw him one time,"
said Tad, irrelevantly; and then he
stopped to laugh at the recollection.
Higgins was a very strong man;
and one day in spring, before mount
ed drill was- begun, the soldiers- got
np a tournament on the parade-ground,
where the orderly sergeant challenged
any one to wrestle. Tad remembered
Gore's acceptance, and how the big
ger man had strutted to the encoun
ter; bow the two had gripped to the
work, and how presently Gore had
caught the huge weight on his hip, and
had flung the other heels overbad in
one great sweep, and had landtfd "bim
fairly and finally.
But that was months ago. . Tad
looked np at the distant bluff while
the buglers were blowing a retreat,
but he stood in "the attitude of a
- soldier" ?, when the jflag came down to
the booming of the evening gun
That night he made his bed on the
floor of the upper porch, and lay there
wondering at the a tar s till long after
taps?' Time and again-he.caught him
self almost across the border-land of
dreams, and it seemed to bim the
lagging midnight must have passed
when the sound for which he waited
reached bis ears. And then the sud
denness of it, the savage strength of
that panther's cry, startled the
courageous little fellow till his heart
was still. The half-human quality of
the tone added to the terror of it.
Then his breath came back, and
with it his daring. And the next time
the cry was raised he knew the shingly
shelves of the bluff were then a prom
enade for the panther.
Next night Sergeant Gore was on
guard, but the next after he was free;
and time and again he wondered
where Tad was in hiding; for he had
not seen the boy since dinner-call.
Lang and Warner were up the
gulch with an eight-mule team, and
they came in at sundown with a load
of wood. When they had unharnessed
the mules Lang found Sergeant Gore
stretched on his bunk, trying to read
by the afterglow.
"Oh, Gore, here's a note from the
Captain's kid," said the teamster
.. .Gore peered nt the penciled lines:
' ' DEAR SEE SE INT : I am up on the
bluff. If you don't come and'get me,
'may be the panther will. TAD.
A cayuse pony was picketed back
of the quartermaster's' store, and
Sergeant Gore took a turn of the rope
around the animal's jaw, leaped to thc hi
bare back, and galloped-to the hills, qt
Ho carried his carbine, and a belt of ra
cartridges was buckled about him. pi
And every muscle of his splendid m
frame quivered; for he loved1 the; eg

Tad had calculated the noto'might
dot be do! i yere d until after dr k; and
he crept along the slaty shel res rn til
Lie found a little recess where the
loose earth had been worn away by
the wind and the rain, and he climbed
3own there and baoked in. About six
feet below was a broad ledge which
foaclled fal' around to ike right? By

feet were pressed to the farthest

his rifle within easy reaching dis
tance, and then looked out and dared
che panther to come.
Straight before him, down the val
ley, was the fort. He watched the
twinkling light.-' go out in the mess

.vas so Arm in Sergeant Gore that he
lever doubted the soldier was coming.
Presently he heard the. dull beat of
loofs on the long road, But it was
rom unshod feet, and not a cavalry
?orse. That chilled his courage a
ittle. And just as he tried to con
rince himself that he was wrong, and
learched for hope that an army horse
tndjno.t a pony was galloping toward

he wonderful silence of the hills.
His little body was positively

t. And theo, because he was a cap
ain's son, Ted hammered, his bare
mackies against the stone, and forced
tis courage to come back.
He peered over the edge of his
keif at the broad ledge below; he

A general improvement of the con

Out in Arizona, where in the genial

asionally vises to 110 degrees and

rears any insignia of his dignity, ex

United States Medal of Honor.
The medal of honor grantod by Con
gress for some conspicuous act of
;allantry is so rare that hundreds of
.ulcers have never even seen it.
The bow knot worn in the button?
tole in lieu of the medal goes un
eeognized except by the very few.
?he medal is of black bronze, and is
ift?n mistaken for the Grand Army
nsignia, the latter having been pat
erned after it to a certain degree. It
s much larger than the latter, and on
he reverse side is engraved tho name,
ank, date and the battle in whioh the
?rvice was rendered, and the specific
ct of heroism for whioh it was given.
?he medal is only worn on state occa
ions, but the bow knot is always
rom. It is a small affair, with its
peci?o ribbon. It is of silk, white
tripe in center, bordered by two blue
tripes, which are bordered by two
ed stripes.. It is an inch in length
nd three-eighths of an inch wide.
