He sends Uncle Daniel, a negro, to

Mark, endeavoring to pass a Qon
~federate ,picket, says he and Laura
are Mr. and Mrs. Green. They are de
-tained. Mark and Laura agree to be
'man and wife in reality.
IT was nine o'clock In the evening.
Major Tallaferro and his guests
were sitting in his office room
Achatting. A clatter of horses'
h oofs was heard at the front of the
thouse and some one dismounted. In
.another moment there was a tramp of
.cavalry boots in the hall; all turned to
-the open door-and there stood Cap
-tain Cameron Fitz Hugh.
F or a moment he regarded Mark and
Laura sternly; then advancing a few
-steps he bowed low to rLaura.
"Captain." said the major rising. "I
im-sppose it is useless to deny to this
lady and gentleman that I deemed it
any duty to make sure of their iden

as you, j_nd yetf ~~a r66~ed'you of
your love. This last act of kindness
to her and to ne, so well indicating
your magnanimity, is more than I can
bear. I cannot accept anything more,
even for her sake. I cannot stay here
to be shielded by you and behind her
skirts. I am about to leave this ve
randa aid fly to the Union lines.
Thank God. I have met one who is the
soul of honor, in whose charge I leave
my wife. Consider her under your
care. She will doubtless need all you
can give her, for I never expect to
see her again. I shall doubtless be
captured before tomorrow noon. If
you were not my enemy, if you had
not been my rival, I would love you
as a brother."
Without waiting for a reply Mark
left the veranda, and in another mo
ment was lost in the darkness.
Captain Fitz Hugh stood as one pet
rified. Should he. keep the secret
Laura's secret? He leaned against a
pillar of the veranda and passed his
hand over his/brow.
He could not stab Laura; he could
not even betray the man who had left
her In his care. He did nothing.
Half an hour had elapsed when Tal
laferro, who had been busying him
self with some papers, began to won
der what had become of the two men.
He got up and went out on the veranda.
"Where's Green?" he asked quickly.
"Yes, gone half an hour ago."
"What does this mean. Cameronr

"Twice before fe has crossed my
path. He was taken and tried at Chat
tanooga. I was detailed to defend him.
I had never seen him before. He was
found guilty and sentenced to be
hanged, but escaped.
"When I met him again it ,was at
the Fains' house. Laura Fain, the wo
man upstairs, then my betrothed, but
-ow-his wife, was concealing him."
"I saw that she was infatuated with
him. She claimed him for her guest.
"Well, go on."
"I couMt not honorably inform on
"Oh, Cameron - what absurdity -
"This afternoon you sent for me. i
came. I saw tgie man I. had seen twice
before-with my-with the loveliest,
the noblest of all women-his wife."
The major only stared at his friend;
he had no words to express his feel
Ings, his sympathy.
"When we came out here he told mie
that he- would accept nothing further
for himself at my hands; that he would
not shield himself behind a woman's
skirts. He walked away before me."
"And you ?"
"1 permitted him."
Taliaferro shuddered. He knew that
his friend by his act had placed him
self in a terrible position.
"Cameron." he said, "do you know
you are liable to be shot for this?"
"I always told you." the major went
en anxiously, impa,tiently, "that your
notions of honor were absurd, quixot
"The highest sense of honor is never
quixotic. It Is best fitted for a Chris

"And do you expect me to let this
"No. Protect yourself - the cause.
Send after him. It Is I who have con

must not suffer."~
"The cause alone is en'ough."

In ten minutes Laura. Major Talia
ferro seated beside her. six stalwart
cavalry men in gray about her, was on
her way to join her mother.
Mark knew the.direction of the roads
leading from Anderson, and believed
that he could avoid the pickets. Mak
ing his way over a space covered with
bushes and a low growth of timber, he
struck the road by which he had come
that day at a point beyond the vedette.
Then half a mile's run brought him.
I out of breath, to a house. The occu
pants were not asleep, and Mark suc
ceeded by persuasion and threats in
getting a horse to take him to Slack's,
promising to send It back the next day
with liberal pay for its use.
He arrived at Slack's shortly before
midnight, and his horse fell exhausted
in the yard. Slack received him with
a shotgun pointed through the' cracks
of the door. Mark made himself
known and asked for his uniform and
his arms. The old man got them for
him, and taking them to the stable
Mark put them on. Then he went to
I the stall where his horse stood. The
mare knew her ister when he threw
his arms about her neck and seemed
I as glad to see him as he was to see
"Ah, Madge, my darling! Once on
your back., old girl, and the devil may
catch me it be can."
I He lost no time in putting the bit- in
her mouth and strapping on the sad
dle Then, putting his foot in the
leather covered stirrup, he lifted him
self into his seat.
For the first time In ten days Mark
felt the comfort of being in the saddle
with his arms about him.
A ,few steps tooik him out of the
barn; then.' tur'ning his 'horse's head in
the direction from which he had ap
proached the place with Souri, he rode
away among the trees. Before going
a hundred yards he stopped and lis
tened. Some sound had caught his
ear. It was the gallop of horsemen.
He 'waited, dreading a neigh from his
own horse, which he patted to bold
her attention. The horsemen passed
on down the road.
"Ride on, brave boys." said Mark;
"if you're after me, the faster you go
in that direction the better I'll like it."
In t i light of the waning moon be
trampled over the shadows of. leaves
as on a "crazy quilt." He cr'6ssed the
Sequatchie by the ford over which
Souri had guided ,him, and took care
not to head too far ddwn the stream,
as he bad done before. Then he cross
ed the creek near the fallen log. He
struck the road by which he had left
Jasper just south of the fork at which
Souri bad baited him. Wlthot hesi
tating a moment .he struck out at a
brisk canter over the left of the two
raste one leading to Tr(c~y City.
Markbadnever experienced such
sensations as now. ; On his own fleet
horse, his carbIne slung on his, shoul
der, his pistol at his side, on the road
to the Union camps, a wife k'bom he
~adored.to join nim'in case he should
arrive safely-why should not the spirit
within him fairly glow with hope?
