He grinned, showing his teeth, and
my eyes noted how firmly ho held his
"A pledge la" pledge, MaBter Hay
ward," ho answered, insolently. "I am
called Simon Glrty."
I Involuntarily took a stop back
ward, staring into tho man's face.
That he was a renegado of some sort,
I had realized from tho first, yet it
had never once occurred to me that he
could bo that bloody scoundrel, dirty.
Thero flashed across my mind tho
stories I, had heard of his atrocities:
his leadership of Indiana in midnight
torazi his malignant cruelty; the
hoartlossness with which ho watchod
victims burning at the stake; his out
rages on helpless woman and children;
tho fiendish actB of savagery with
which his brutal name was connected
along tho border. And this was tho
man this cowardly-oyed dastard, who
stood thero grinning Into my face, evi
dently amused at my undisguised ex
pression of horror. Protect, and guide
him! My first inclination was tostriko
the man down in his tracks, kill him
as I would a venomoua snake. He
read all this in my oyes, in the stiffen
ing of my muscles.
"No, no, Master Hayward," ho sneer
ed, bringing his rifle forward, "don't
lot the name frighten you. The half
you've heard of mo aro lies. I'm not
so bad when all is told, and there is
moro than one borderman who can re
call my mercy. Kenton escaped tho
stako through me, and thero are white
women and children awaiting ransom
In Detroit because I interceded for
them. Now I play fair, above board
see?" and he dropped his gun on tho
grass, and held out his empty hands.
"It Is easy to kill me, yet you will not
you are a soldier."
I stood Irresolute, hesitating, half
tempted still to come to blows, yet his
act disarmed me. Doast though he
might bo I could not kill him In cold
blood; I was no murderer, yet It was
a strugglo to resist.
"Now Hston, Simon dirty," I man
aged to say, at last. "There is no

I felt no fear of treachery. I was of too
great value to tho fellow to warrant
an attack; so, without hesitation, I
led tho way, permitting him to follow
or not, as ho pleasod. I had It In my
mind to question him, but refrained.
What "would bo the use? The fellow
would only lie, In all probability, and
one word would lead to another. He
would havo to be explicit enough once
he confronted Harmar, and my duty
morely consisted in delivering him

clearings, llttorod with stumps, but

tho scattered log houses of Marietta.
Men were at work in the Holds, but I
avoided these as much as possible, al
though they paused In their labor and
stared suspiciously at us as we ad"
vanccd. However I was well known,
my size making mo notable, and as
our course was toward tho town, no
ono objected to our progress. Thero
was no recognition of the man, who
clung, close to my heels, and I wasted
no tlmo In getting past, eager to bo
well rid of him.
In truth I felt little hope of getting
through thus easily. Tho fellow was
too wldoly known not to bo recognized
by some one. These men of tho fields
wore settlers, newly arrived mostly,
and slightly acquainted a yet with
bordor history, but thero would be idle

from across the river, men who had

"Sentry! Call the guard!"
I got the words out somehow, boring

tho shouting of an order, tho shock
of contact, and then I stood alone,

'JThat will do, sergeant," I called
out, tho moment I could gain breath.
"Here now, don't hit that man! Sur

tako care of myself."
The little squad tramped off, dirty
in their midst, his head turned back
over his shoulder watchfully. I step
ped forward fronting Brady, and held
out my hand.
"Sorry this happened," I said sobor
ly, "but I promised to bring tho man
to the fort, and I had to defend him."
"He's a bloody savage!" ho retorted,
with an oath, and making no respon
sive movement; "no's worse than any
Injun on the bordor." '
"I know all that, Brady. I despise
tho fellow as much as any of you, al
though I may not have suffered
through his acts as some of you have.
But he is hero In peace, not war. To
Injuro him now might cost hundreds
of lives. Let him glvo his message to
deneral Harmar; after that wo shall
know how to denl with tho skunk. At
least do not hold this against me; I
only did my duty." .
Brady loosonod his grip on his gun,
and took my hnnd.
"I understand that, boy," ho said,
not unkindly. "Your fighting was
square enough, and no harm done. I

St Clair and Harmar are doing the
best they can under such conditions.
They havo got to compromise; they

of his nightly meditations. '
Once, when Jerry had reverted to

With tho enthusiasm of youth, ho

to meet It As a natural sequence as
a means to an end, Jorry began to long
for tho emergency. Tho longing In
tensified itself until tho very Inner
most recesses of Jerry's soul cried out
for nn emergency.
It was on tho night of tho memor
ablo Charleston earthquake. No. 18,
north-bound frolght, had pullod noisily
down the long siding, and settled for a
drowsy wait for No. 6, south-bound
passenger, with the englno standing

Jerry was beguiling tho tlmo by

Ho had Just succeeded In rounding

when ho was startled by healng Meri

tho same Information. Then another
and another, still nearor, signing their
calls in turn.
"Oreat Scott!" exclaimed Jorry.
"An earthquake's coming this way,
and they aro spreading tho alarm."
As ho sat tense and nlert In his
chair, waiting for and yot dreading
further confirmation of his fears, a low
rumbling sound struck his ear. Tho
window panes began to vibrato and
tbo sashes to rattlo.
Jerry sprang to his feet with
blanched fuco and shaking limbs, sick
ening fear gripping at his heart There
flashed across his oxcltod brain a
vision of toppling buildings, and his
first lmpulso was to fly to the open
But with that flash thero camo an
other mental picture of swaying

He must stick to his post and give

bis fear, as he realized that at last an

Ho grasped tho key with trembling

As ho emerged from the depot build

Great Dane Honored by New York Society Woman
NEW YORK. It Is not a frequent occurrence In tho lives of men, famous

of the masculine sex In this city, how

Natural curiosity makes ono wonder
who this odd member of the commu
nity is. Ho is Mr. James Calpln,
more familiarly known as plain Jim.
Moro curiosity makes ono begin to
wonder who and what Jim Is. Jim Is

Is Jim a well-known member of New York socloty? Indeed he Is. Ho
