The only answer was a monnhii?
He called again, and this time he
hearjl something like the cry of s
child; and presently the olijeta came
toward him from out of the darkness,
itli a quick, cmpliatic movement,
lie brought Ids musket to charge,
and ordered tho intruder to halt.
"Mercy I" exclaimed a childish
voice. "Don't slioot me t I am Na
talia. Don't you know me?"
Heavens !" cried Ju.uine, elevating
the muzzle of his piece. "Is it you,
dear child?' ' '
"Yes; and you are good Jerome.
Oh, you will come nnd help mama;
Come, she is dying."
It was certainly Natalia, a little
girl only eight years old, daughter of
Ltsctte Valllant. Lixette was the
daughter of Pierre Villant, a sergeant
in Jerome's own regiment, and was
in the army In capacity of nurse.
" Why how Is this, my ehild ?" said
Jerome, taking the littlo one by the
arm. "What Lj it about your moth
er?" "Oh, good Jerome, you can hear
her now I Hark I"
Tlie sentinel bent his ear, but could
hear only the wind and tlie rain.
"Mamma is In the dreadftd mud,"
said tlie child, "and is dying. She Is
not far away. Oh. I can hear her
By degrees, Jerome gathered from
Natalia that her father had taken her
out with him in tlie morning, and
that in the evening when the storm
camo on, her mother came after her.
The sergeant had offered to send a
man back to the camp with his wife,
but she preferred to return alone, feel
ing sure that she should meet with no
trouble. The way, however, had be
come dark and uncertain, and she
had lost tho path, and wandered oft "
u tne edge or the morass, where she
sunk in the mud.
"Olio, good Jerome," cried the lit
tle one, seizing the man's hand,
"can't you hear her ? She will die if
you do not come and help her !"
At that moment tho sentinel fan
cied he heard tlie wail of the unfor
tunate woman, Usette, . tlie good,
the beautiful, tlie tender hearted Ids
ettt was in danger, and it was hi his
ixiW'er to save her. It was not in his
heart to withstand tho pleadings of
tneciuid. lie could go and rescue
the nurse and return to his post with
out detection. A t all events, ho could
not reiuse tne childish pleader.
"Give uie your hand, Natalia, I'll
go along with you."
With a cry of Joy the child sprang
to me soiuicrs sine, and wnen sue
had secured his hand she. hurried him
along toward tho place where she had
left her mother. It seemed a long dis
tance to Jerome, nnd onco ho stopped
lis though he would turn back, lie
did not fear death, but he feared dis
"Hark!" uttered the child.
Tlie soldier listened, and rilnlnlv
heard the voice of the snflerliig wo
man calling for help. He hesitated
no longer. On he hastened through
the storm, and found Llsette sunk to
tlie arm pits in the soft morass. For-
tunutely a tutX or long gran had been
within her reach, by which means
u '" er nemi uuove tne iuuu
mud. It was no easy matter to ex
tricate her front tlie miry pit, us tlie
workman had to las very careful that
he did not himself lose his fHting.
At length, however, she was drawn
forth, and he led her forwurd to his

from the gloom.

Jerome heard the click of a musket

Care lor tbe Hog Cholera.
Mr. E, Walker, of Milton, North
Carolina, communicates the followli g
to the Maryland Fanner :
I write to send a cure for the hog
cholera that I know to he good, and
a certain cure, as far as I have tried it.
Not to trespass on your space. I will
give it 111 a few Words: When the hog
Is first found to have the cholera,
throw it on its back ; put a piece of
tar, about the size of a hickory nut,
on the end of a stick ; put It down it
throat: lie sure it Is swallowed. I
have tried It on a good many and '
cured every one. Ono In particular
was so fur gone as to have lost one of
Its legs. I lost a great may before this
was tried. I clipped their ears and
tails, but think that should not be '
done, as It only weakens. All hogs '
that look droopy are benefitted by tar.
Some recommend rolling corn In tar,
but I don't think the hog Hwalh W
enough in that way to tie lienetitted.
