THOMAs GREEN AND WIFE.
ARK designed driving to An
derson. some twelve miles
from the Slacks' house,
whences he knew there was a
road leading up in the mountains
* through a place called Altamnont, some
twenty miles farther, to McMinnville.
He was informed by people he met on
the road that Altamont had been re
cently occupied 'iu force by the Union
troops. With luck they might reach
the Union lines, which would doubt
less extend seve'ral miles from Alta
mont, that afternoon.
"Within six hours," said Mark. "I
shall either be 'safe among Union sol
diers or on my way back to Chatta
Laura shuddered. but said notMing.
Mark found a very different condi
tion of affairs at Anderson from what
he had found along the road. The
Confederates had some cavalry force
there and more at Dunlap, five miles
north.. On the road he heard that Gen
eral Bragg was at Dunlap. but with
no troops save cavalry.
"I see it all," said the spy to him
self. "The wily fox is confronting our
forces with a handful of cavalry. while
the two divisions of Cheathamn and
SWithers are marching north behind
him..and the main force bas gone to
Knoxville by rail on a line still fartber -
east. No wonder our generals are puz
zled and watching a line from Dattle
creek to Cumberland gap. If the Lord
will only let me~ get Ihrough to carry
tihis information. I'! never ask to live
to go on another sueb expedition."
The party were stoplped near Andier
son by a picket. Mrs. Fain produced
her pass and strated that the two be
bind were in ber~ company. The officer
took no espediai care in reading it, and
when Mark and Laura came 'up they
got safely through without question.
Mark was now anxious about the
picket which must be passed in a few
minutes on the road leading west from
Anderson. Mrs. Fain was still ahead.
and he hoped that all would go as well
as at the picket just passed. Not a
word was spoken between him and
Laura; both dreaded getting out of An
derson. but once past the next picket
they would -breathe easier.
When they reaebed it Mrs. Fain had
been passed through and gone on. The
Sofficer in command. bowever, had read
the pass carefully. He had not noticed
any mention of Mark in it.
"Where's your pass?" he ask-ed.
"Didn't the lady ahead show it to
you?" asked Mark.,
"Her pass didn't include you."
"D!an't It?" Mark feigned surprise.
!SA WAR STORY
nerican Press Association).
"Oh. I forgot; mine and my wife's is
separate." and he drew out the pass of
"Thomas Green and wife."
Meanwhile Laura had turned white
as a cloth. The officer read the pass,
and would doubtless have let them go
had he not noticed Laura's agitation.
"You'll have to go back to headquar:
ters and get Major Taliaferro's order
on that. He commands at Anderson."
Mark'remonstrated. He argued that
he would become separated from Mrs.
Fain; he urged his wife's desire to
reach her sick father. All in vain. He
was told that the headquarters were
only half a mile down the road and
he would lose but little time. He
made a virtue of necessity and drove
back with apparent good nature.
The commanding officer had gone to
Dunlap, five miles away, to pay his
respects to General Bragg, and would
not be back for an hour or two.
Mark resolved to report his absence
to the officer of the picket post, in the
hope that he would not be compelled
to wait. He drove to the picket and
used his tongue persuasively, but to
no purpose. The more anxious he
seemed the more resolved grew the
There seemed to be nothing to do but
return and' await 'the arrival of the
commanding officer. Mark reluctantly
turned the horse's head and drove back
to headquarters. Laura'i beart sank
It 'was sunwet when Major Taliaferro,
a pleasant looking man of twenty-sev
en or twenty-eight. rode up to the
door and eutered the ottive.
"Major Taliaferro?" asked Mark.
"At your servi(e. sir."
"Major. I ha ve. been detained by the
officer at the picket. wh, wants your
name on my pass. M1y wife's mother
has gone on. and her daughter i. very
anxious to join her. It is~ extremely
unfortunate for us to get so far sep
arated from Mrs. Fain."
"Fain, of the Fains of Chattanooga?"
"I1 have heard of the family. bnt have
never had the pleasure of meeting any
member iof It. One of my friends is
engaged to Miss Fain. I have just
parted from him at Dunlap."
Mark and Laura cast a quick glance
at each other-a glance of terror on the
paFt of Laura.
"We are fortunate in falling into your
hands," said Mark. "angi I beg you
will not delay us a moment." And
Mark handed him the pass.
"Certainly not." And the major took
up a pen to write his indorsement.
First he read the pass carefully. He
was thinking of what his friend Fitz
Hugh had ,told him of the Fains. He
was under the impression that there
was but one daughter.
"Mr. Green,"?' he said., looking up
from the pass. "hadn't you better stay
here over nighti The road is moun
tainous and infested by guerrillas. It
is positively dangerous to travei."
"By no means. What would Mrs..
Fain think of our not joini-ng her on
"It is dangerous for her as well as
you. I'll send a messenger after ber
and advise her stopping at some farm
house. I'll do better than that. I'll
send a corporal and half a dozen men
to insure her safety till morning."
There was something in the man's
tone, polite as.it was, that indicated to
Mark that he' was held for further In"
"As you please, major."
"And I shall insist upon your accept
ing my hospitality. One connected in
any way with my friend Fitz Hugh
must not want for any comfort I can!
The house occupied by Major Talla
ferro belonged to a family who had
gladly given up a portion of it for the
safety insured by the presence of a!
commanding officer. The major was
given a room down stairs for an of
fe, and a~ bedroom up stairs. When
it was deelded that Mark and Laura
should remain he gave Mrs. Green. as
he called her, the use of the latter for
the purpose of arranging her toilet
When Laura was up stairs Mark was
looking out of the window of the ma
jor's office. He saw the men ride off:
to overtake Mrs. Fain. To his con
sternation another cavalryman, with a
letter 'in his belt, mounted his horseK
and dashed down the road.I
Laura came down at that moment,
and Mark said to her anxiously:
"I am detained on suspicion. I shall
be taken back to Chattanooga," and
he pointed to the courier.
The color left Laura's cheeks. They
had got so near to safety, and now,
after so many dangers, the end was at!
hand. She could scarcely sustain her
self as she tottered into the room oc
cupied as the office.
This is the letter the courier bore 1
northward. It was addressed on the
envelope to Captain Cameron F3itz
Hugh, near Dunlap:
Anderson, Aug. 29. 1862.
My Dear Cameron--A man purporting to
be Thomas Green. with his wife, formerly
a Miss Fain of Chattanooga. Is here. de
siring a pass to the Union lines. There is
somethinzg suspicious about the man. The
mnUler. 'and -T olner ies ve7rv 1 at
Nasnville. I disi...e tu detain tiun . and I
J0 not regard it safe to pass them. Can
you help me out of the difficulty? Yours
Major Taliaferro soon joined Mark
and Laura in his office, and offering
bis arm to Laura led the way to the
supper room. His treatment of both
was most deferentiol. but it failed to
deceive either that they were prison
There was a strength of nerve in
Mark that would not break while there
was hope. He chatted with the host

ty. Not so Laura. The situation was
too frightful for her to endure without

was said to her, and her eyes plainly
howed the troubled spirit Nvithin.
Nark made no reference to her corfil

Scarcely was this hurried ceremony
over when a cavalryman came riding
toward,them to watch Mark.

do but return to the house. As they
