and smoko and struggling human

years had done their work, and nature,
which permits no desolation, had sown
the furrowed land with grass and
blooming flowers which swayed and
swung in the spring air as if in unison
with the humming of the bees above
them. But as he dismounted and led
his horso down the hill he discoverod
traces of the battle which had escaped

As Kortlandt rose from a vain at
tempt to decipher ono of these, a figure
appeared from tho woods near by, and,
after the momentary pauso of the first
surprise of seeing him, continued stead
ily to advance along the path which led
within a few yards of his side. Tho
figure was that of a woman, poorly
clad, but tall and graceful, and moving
with peculiar strength and freedom of
motion. Kortlandt waited until she
was near him and then said:
"I beg your pardon, but can you in
form me what graves are these?"
The woman stopped abruptly as tho
tones of the clear northern voice reach
ed her, and suddenly turned upon him
her face, until then concealed beneath
the broad brim of the broad straw hat
which she wore. It was that of a girl,
brunette and brilliant, illuminated with
a pair of glowing eyes, which now fixed
themselvt j upon him.
"You must have come from very far
away not to know whose arc the graves
that you are standing on," she said in
a voice which did not owe its peculiar
intonation to the southern dialect in
which she spoke.
"You are right," he replied, surpris
ed at her beauty and manner; "my
home is as far away as the snows of
winter from these southern flowers."
A look of intense bitterness entered
the girl's face. "You aro from the
north," she said. Her eyes flashed.
"I will tell you whose are tho graves
upon which you are treading. They
arc those of the 'rebels' you defeated,
proudly; "they are those of the mar
tyrs, the heroes, who starved and froze,
who gave up home, family, wealth,
and life in attempted protection of their

Kortlandt looked into the girl's flush-i-d
and flashing face in a very niaz j ol
astonishment. But her concluding
words aroused his anger and he drew
himself up with the color mounting to
his brows. Controlling himself with
an effort he lifted his cap, and, bow
ing, said with cold courtesy, in singular
contrast to her fire, "That being the

a his account oi the girl s history af
fected Kortlandt powerfully. Ho no
longer wondered at tho intensity of tho
hatred with which sho regarded all those
of northern blood. How could it be oth
erwise, when every day of her life sho
bad read afresh this story in those hill
side graves, thoso implanted fields, and
the charred ruins among the cedar
trees? Tho anger which had moved him
passed away in wondering admiration
when ho pictured to himself that
strong, beautiful young figure, which
bad confronted him so defiantly, taking
upon itself and performing, in its pride
of independence, the labors of a iield
band on tho land where her forefathers
bad commanded in absolute supremacy
the labor of hundreds.
Tho weeks passed by and Kortlandt
found his health, which had been
somewhat impaired by his professional
labors, and which he had come to the
south to recuperate, entirely restored.
Yet he was in no baste to return to tho
work which bo had been so loath to
eave. Indeed, tho heat of the summer
was upon him in its utmost intensity,
and yet he could not break tho spell
which held him in tho south. What
was this spell? Was it tho occasional
glimpses he caught as he rode by of a
girl's figure at work in a strip of cot
ton or corn down in tho rich bottom
land? Or the glances ho had two or
threo times received from a pair of de
fiant eyes under the brim ot a broad
straw bat as ho encountered their own
er in the road?"
At any rate, ho said to himself ono
night as he entered the room: "You
are a fool; this has got foend; you start
He had passed the old Errestt plan
tation returning from his evening ride;
the night was brilliantly moonlit; he
had left his horso in tho shadow of some
trees and walked up the long cedar-
shaded drive which formerly led to the
bouso. A shorter shaded path led to
the quartors and this ho had followed
till he came where he could see the
door of ono of the cabins, and before it
in tho light of tho moon a young girl
seated at tho feet of a white-haired old
negro, against whose knee sho leaned
tier head while they sang together she
in a fresh, sweet contralto, he in tho
quavering tones of age an old planta
tion ditty, simple and plaintive.
Ho had stolen away unnoticed, and
had ridden slowly home, with a feeling
in his heart that was something liko
despair. It was the consciousness of
this feeling which had elicited his sud
den exclamation and resolve.
It was near daybreak when a knock
at his door aroused him, and a fright
ened prayer took him to the bedside of
ono of the servants of tho house. It
lhat settled tho question of his de
parture for him. Ho remained whero
ho was, and in tho terrible days which
followed no help that he could give
was withheld. So faithful and efficient
was he that soon tho "Yankee Doc
tor's" was a name on the lips of every
ono, and never uttered without a word
of commendation and gratitude.
Alono for the old physician who
had long held tho practice of tho little
place in monopoly had early succumb
ed to the fever he fought tho terrible
disease, battling with a courage which
inspired others and kept them trom de

One rainy niirht after the enM
had passed its crisis Kortlandt, return
ing irom a visit at a distance, and dis
mounting from his weary horse at his
door, found n woman's figure standiii"
by his side, which he knew even in thiil

At the mouth of Beaver creek, on
tho Missouri river, lives a family by tho
name of KiJon. There are several
sons, and they are all noted as being
very powerful men and very f-Mid of
hunting. One day while Daniel Boone,
the eldest, was out cutting hav in tho
field ho heard bis dogs give tongue a
few hundred yards distant, and procur
ing his gun he followed the direction
l tho sound until finally he discovered
them baying something in a clump of
oushes on a knoll only a few feet dis
tant from the river bank. Regardless
of danger, he rushed up to tlie river
hank to reconnoiter, but he had scarce
ly time to discover anything when out
iprang a huge bear, rose on his
launches, and jumped for an attack.
;Ir. 1'ilson had just time to bring his
gun half way to his shoulder, when it
vas discharged without tak'n aim.
Hy a singular coincidence Mr. Kilson's
brother-in-law had heard the harking
i.f the dogs, too, and was htiStening to

is the bear sprang out of the bushes.
Having his gun loaded with heavy shot,
tie tired' at the bear at close quarters,
bitting him, hut also shot Mr. 1'ilson
in he vend places. The next Mr. Fil
i.on knew he found himself buried in a
!;nnd-bar, all except a portion of his
face around the eyes, with the bear
utanding directly over him and growl
ing savagely at his brother-in-law, who
was preparing for another shot. His
brother-in-law fired, .and the bear
it prang in the direction of tho shot, but
us he did so his hind paws, which wero
resting on Mr. Fiison's lei's, wero
brought down with such quickness and
litrength that they tore the flesh from
the bones in shreds. Before the bear
could reach the brother-in-law ho fell
mortally wounded; but Mr. l-'ilson lay
for six months in a precarious con
dition, and has never fully recovered
from the injuries received. In relating
the circumstance ho stated that when

value as a medicine beyond dispute. It is
purely vegetable compound of certain roots,

these are remedies acting directly on the
