- CHAPTER XIII.
SOFF FOR THE UN1ON LINES.
MARK's fist impulse after Fltz
Hugh's departure was to
leave the house at once. He
tried to sysomething to
Laura to soothe h)er, to excuse his
own unfortunate part in her breaking
with her lover. He could only go to
her- and tiiking her hand kissed it
swithout a word. Then nie told her
that he should take the risk of cap
d---ur.e .And depart instantly.
- He was discoursing upon the method
of his departure in quick, excited
Stones, when a horseman entered the
yard, and riding up to the veranda
drew a letter from his belt and hand
ed It to a negro who went out to re
ceive it. It was for Mrs. Fain. It
had been sent through the lines from
N~ashville, where tner husband was
lying dangerously Ill, and begged her
to come to him.
After Its perusal Mrs. Fain deter
mined to set out the next day, taking
with her her daughter and the maid
Alice. Dani would drive them.
"You shall go with us," said Laura
to Mark. "This Is fortunate. In our
company you will be far safer than1
trying,to make your way alone."
It occurred to Mark that since he
was .being hunted as a half starved
creature In the disguise of a negro girl
,he would be less liable to suspicion as
a well dressed man traveling with a
Sparty of southern ladies than in any
other character. At any rate he tookI
this view of it, and when Mrs. Fain
announced her intention to go he of
fered to escort the party to the Union
The offer was accepted. and prepara
tions' were made to leave the next
morning. Mrs. Fain wrote a note to
the officer in command at Chattanooga
(to send with the letter she nad re
ceived from her husband for his pe
rusal) asking for a pass for herself.
her daugher and two servants. Mark
took the missives and went out to find
Daniel, who had just returned from
"I be'n dar."
"What did you learn?2"
"I hearn every one talken 'bout so

"How many trains did you see go
"'Bout forty hundred."
"Daniel," said Mark, smiling at the
fig'ures, -you're smart as a whip. But
Syou'll have to go right back to Chat

"Reckon I do. sab."
"Can you read?"
"A leetle. Missie Laura learned me."
"Well, read the .pass he may give
you ind ask him to fix it so that it
will include me as a servant. But you
mustluse your judgment."
Daniel drove again to Chattanooga.
Mark waited anxiously for his return.
Indeed so impatient was he that he
thought the negro bad been gone twice
as long as he had when he saw him
drive into the yard. He at once went
out to the barn to meet him.
"Any luck?' be asked anxiously.
"I got de pass for misses and de res',
but I didn't get what yo' wanted. I
got a paper hyar. Mebbe it'll do."
Mark took the pa-per. It was a pass
for Thomas Green and wife from
Chattanooga to the Union lines.
"How did you get this?" asked Mark,
"I hab to wait while folks was get
ten passes. De officerggo out to de
udder room fur a moment. Dis was
layen on de desk, 'n I tuk hit up and
brung hit away."
"Well," said Mark. "it's not exactly
what I want. but ingenuity will have
to help me- through. You're a trump.
In the morning when all was ready
for the departure two vehicles were
brought arouna to ine door. toe one, a
two horse carriage. tbe other Laura's
phaeton. drawn oy. ner ,pon..- Mrs.
Fain entered tMe former with Alice.
Daniel being In tfie driver's spat. Lau
ra and Mark got into the phaeton.
All went well during tbe tirst ten or
twelve miles. when .\l:rk received( a
piece of information whwfl seriously
interfered with his plan. Meeting a
courier riding towaird Chattanooga,
who looked as if he mi;rht be the bear
er of some important news. Mark
hailed him and asked it he had any
thing from the front.
"The Yankees air gettin' no'th right
smart," the man replied. "Reckon th'
air left Battle creek."
Mark argued that if this were true
there would be confusion on that route,
nd it would be better to take an
other. They were not far from the
road leading from the Chattanooga
pike north to Anderson, on which the
Slacks lived., Mark concluded to,take
this road as far as Anderson, and then
strike west wit b a view to reaching
McMinnvilJle on the other side of the
mountains. Mrs. Fain left all to Pro
fessor Rhett, In whom she had perfect
confidence, and on coming to the road
in question Mark led the party north
The change of route was unfortu
nate, inasmuch as it would add an
other day to the journey. The depar
ture from the Fain residence had been
delayed by the preparations till nearly
noon. McMinnvlle was a considerable
distance over the mountains, and
Mark knew they could not reach It
that night. He remembered that they
would soon pass the Slacks', and it
occurred to him that it would be a
capital place to pass the' night, giving
them a good day of twelve hours light
on the morrow to pursue their jour
ney. His disappointment at the delay
was compensated for by the thought
that he would likely learn something
of Souri and Jakey, of whom he had
heard nothing since he left them in
the Chattanooga jaiL
At last they drove up at the Slacks'
gate. Mark handed the reins to Laura
and jumped from the phaeton impa
tiently. Not seeing .any one in the
front of the house he proceeded to the
rear. The first person he met was
Jakey. He took the boy up and hug
"Are you glad tog ee your big broth
er, Ja key ?"
"Air th' corn ripe?"
Souri came out of the house, her big
eyes glistening and her expressive
face radiant with pleasure and excite
ment. She had heard nothing of Mark
since be left her in prison. Mark
seized her by both hands.
"You uns air safe. I knowed it,"
she said, almost in a whisper. She
could hardly speak for joy.
"For the present, Souri, thanks to
Mark asked no questions then. He
knew that they were safe and at
home, and he hastened to inform them
and the father and mother who came
out to welcome him that he was with
a party who was unaware of his true
character, which they must not be
tray, and desired permission to stay
in the house over night. Then he led
theA:n around to the gate. Daniel had
meanwhile caught up, and the two
vehicles were halted in the road.
"We will spend the night with these
good people," said MarL-. "They are
quite willing, and will make us as
comfortable as possible."
The party alighted and the horses
were driven to the barn. Mrs. Fain
and her daughter were given the room
in which Mark had changed his clothes
ma n~ h' w ent thngh~ to the soth,
and Mark was assmin#d a t ow _
the gallery, or m tMe barn, or any
other place he might select.
Laura found Mark's uniform and
arms concealed beneath the bed.
"What do you suppose it means,
mamma?" she said.
"I fear," replied the mother. "that
we shall be murdiered before morning.
These people are doubtless guerrillas."
An apolo;gy for a meal was carried
in to Mrs. Fain and Laura, which
they left untasted. preferring a lunch
eon they had brought with them in a
basket. After supper Laura came out
and begged Mark to bring Souri and
Jakey to speak to her. She smoothed
Jakey's tumbled hair out of his eyes
"1 FEAR THAT WE SHALL BE MURDERED
and asked him if he remembered her.
Jal ey was about to reply in his usual
fashion when he ebecked himself, and
for the first time since Mark had
known him answered directly. Sourt
stood eying Laura from the corners- of
her black eyes with a mingled expres
sion of admiration and antagonism.
Laura spoke to her kiudly, but got
only monosyllables in reply.
After all were asleep that night
Mark took Farmer Slack out into the
tard, where they could converse un
heard, and developed a plan be had
conceived for Sourt and Jakey.
"It is due to your son and daugh

will contain an order for a sufficient
1mount of money to Insure both Jakey
*1nd Sour! an education. Take or send
them north, present the letter, and
you will find everytting provided for

but doubtless she. will in tflne. Now I
must have pen and paper."
"You uns is a good on, stranger. Y'

the letter when y' git no'th?"
"No. I must write it tonight. I am
by no means safe; my neck is still in
The man led the way to his bed
room, where the old womab was sleep
ing. There he produced writing ma
terials, and Mark wrote an order
which, whether he lived or not, in
sured the future of his two friends,
his preservers among the "poor white
trash" of Tennessee.
In the morning, after the pork and
corn bread meal o'f the country, the
travelers again got Into the carriages.
While they were standing before the
gate prior to departure Mark saw
Souri out by the well-house. He went
there to bid her goodby.
"Souri," he said, "\wish there was;
some way in which I could show you
the gratitude I feel toward you. When
I think of my fate, had you Dot ep
peared in the nick of time to save me
by your wit and daring and sacrifice,
I feel that I would like to make some
corresponding sacrifice for you."
"Laws. I didn't do nothen. Besides"
-she leaned over the well and looked
down Into Its depths--"you uns and
me is goo differ. You uns is a gentle
man, and I air poor white trash."
There was an inexpressible melan
choly in her tone. -
"Souri," Mark went on, "I have
made an arrangement with your father
to make a iady of you. I can't make
such 'a sacrifice for you as you have
made for me; that is impossible; but
I can do this if youl will act with me
and consent to the plan. I shall be

want you to promise me that you will

must grant me this as perhaps a last
The girl burst into tears.
"I don't keen what I do."
| "Do you promise?"
i "Yas, I promise."
With a pressure of the hand he turn
ed away, and stalking to the gate got
into the carriage beside Laura. Daniel
and Mrs. Fain had started. Mark fol
lowed, and had gone but a short dis
tance when be heard Jakey calling to
him. He pulled in the pony and wait
ed for the boy to come up. Jakey was
holding something out to him, which.
as he drew nearer, Mark recognized
as the red silk handkerchief.
"Souri sent it ter y'."
"Tell her that I'll never part with it."
"'N I got the squirrel gun," said the
"All right, Jakey. Keep it to re
member me by."
Mark grasped the boy's hand and
then drove on. Laura Fain leaned
