CHAPTER II.—CONTINUED.
All the long summer of the year after
his graduation, from mid-April* until
No\ ember, he never once slept beneath
a wooden roof, and more often than
not the sky was his only canopy. That
summer, too, Jessie spent at home,
Pappoose with her most of the time,
and one year more would finish them
at the reliable old Ohio school. By
that time Folsom's handsome new
home would be in readiness to receive
his daughter at Gate City. By that
time, too, Marshall might hope to have
a leave and come in to Illinois to wel
come his sister and gladden his moth
er's eyes. But until then, the boy had
said to himself, he'd stick to the field,
and the troop that had the roughest
work to do v»as the one that suited him,
and so it had happened that by the
second spring of his service in the regi
ment no subaltern was held in higher
esteem b\ senior officers or regarded
with more em by the lazy ones among
the juniors than the joung graduate,
for those, too, were daj sin which grad-
With the selection of the site Dean
had nothing to do. Silently he looked
on as the quartermaster, the engineer
and a stafE officer from Omaha paced
oil certain lines, took shots with their
instruments at neighboring waters of
the fork. Two companies of infantrj,
sent down from further posts along the
northern slopes of the range, had
stacked their arms and pitched their
"dog tents," and vigilant vedettes and
sentries peered over every command
ing height and lidge to secure the in
vaders against surprise. Invaders the
certainly were from the Indian point
of view, for this was Indian Story
Land, the most prized, the most beauti
ful, the most prolific in fish and game
in all the continent. Never had the red
man clung with such tenacity to any
section of his hunting grounds as did
the northern Sioux to this, the north
and northeast watershed of the Big
Horn range. Old Indian fighters
among the men shook their heads
when the quartermaster selected a
level bench as the site on which to be
gin the stockade that was to inclose
the officers' quarters and the barracks,
storehouse and magazine, and omin
ously they glanced at one another and
then at the pine-skirted ridge that rose,
sharp and sudden, against the sky, not
400 yards away, dominating the site en
tirely.
"I shouldn't like the job of clearing
away the gang of Indians that might
seize that ridge," said Dean, when later
asked by the engineer what he thought
of it, and Dean had twice by that time
been called upon to help "hustle" In
dians out of threatening positions,
and knew whereof he spoke.
"I shouldn't worry over things
you're never likely to have to do," said
the quartermaster, with sarcastic em
phasis, and he was a man who never
yet had had to face a foeman in the
field, and Dean said nothing more, but
felt right well he had no friend in
Maj. Burleigh.
They left the infantry there to guard
the site and protect the gang of wood
choppers set to work at once, then
turned their faces homeward. They
had spent four days and nights at the
Gap, and the more the youngster saw
of the rotund quartermaster, the less
he cared to cultivate him. A portly,
heavily built man was he, some 40
years of age, a widower, whose chil
dren were at their mother's old home
in the far east, a business man with
a keen eye for opportunities and in
vestments, a fellow who was reputed
to have stock in a dozen mines and
kindred enterprises, a knowing hand
who drove fast horses and owned quite
a stable, a sharp hand who played a
thriving game of poker and had no
compunctions as to winning. Officers
at Emory were fighting shy of him.
He played too big a game for their
small pay and pockets, and the men
with whom he took his pleasure were
and gamblers, who in those days
thronged the frontier towns and most
men did them homage. But on this
trip Burleigh had no big gamblers
along and missed his evening game,
and. once arrived at camp along the
Fork, he had "roped in" some of the
infantry officers, but Brooks and the
engineer declined to play, and so had
Dean from the very start.
'*All true cavalrymen ought to be
able to take a hand at poker," sneered
Burleigh, at the first night!s camp, for
here was a pigeon really worth the
plucking, thought he. Dean's jUfe in
the field had been so simple and inex
pensive that he had saved much of iris
slender pay but, what Burleigh did
not know, he had sent much of it
home to mother and Jess.
"I know several men who would
^have been the better for. leaving it
atone/' responded Dean, very quietly.
1they rubbed each other the wrong
$£%a from the very start(and this was
£bad for the boy, for in those days,
when army morals were less looked
after than they are now, men of Bur*

in the dead of winter the devious trail
through the Medicine Bow range to
Frayne. Once already had he been

Big Horn, and when certain officers
were ordered to the mountains early in
the spring to locate the site of the new
post at Warrior Gap, Brooks' troop, as
has been said, went along as escort and

And now, homeward bound, he was
jogging contentedly along at the
head of the troop. Scouts and flank
ers signaled "all clear." Not a hostile
.Indian had they seen since leaving the
Gap. The ambulances with,' a little
squad of troopers had hung on a few
moments at the noon camp, hitching
slowly and leisurely that their passen
gers might longer enjoy their post
prandial siesta in the last shade they
(should see until they reached, Canton
ment Reno, along day's ride. Present
ly the lively mule teams would come
along the winding trail at a spanking
trot. Then the troop would open out
to right and left and let them take the
lead, giving the dust in exchange, and
once more the rapid march would be
gin. It was four p. m. when the shad
ows of the mules' ears and heads came
jerking into view beside them, and,
guiding his horse to the right, Dean
loosed rein and prepared to trot by the
open doorway of the stout, black-cov
ered wagon. The joung engineer of
ficer, sitting on the front seat, nodded
cordially to the cavalryman. He had
known and liked him at the Point. He
had sympathized with him in the
vague difference with the quartermas
ter. He had to listen to sneering
things Burleigh was telling the aid
de-camp about young linesmen in gen
eral and Dean in paiticular, stocking
the staff officer with opinions which he
hoped and intended should reach the
department commander's ears. The
engineer disbelieved, but was in no po
sition to disprove. His station was at
exploits inrfort orthe
field. Burleigh's of
fice and,„depot_ were in this new,
crowded, bustling frontier town, filled
with temptation to men so far re
moved from the influences of home and
civilization, and Burleigh doubtless
saw and knew much to warrant his
generalities. But he knew now rong of
Dean, for that young soldier, as has
been said, had spent all but a few mid
winter months at hard, vigorous work
in the field, had been to Gate City and
Fort Emory only twice, and then un
der orders that called for prompt re
turn to Fetterman. Any man with an
eye for human nature could see at a
glance, as Dean saw, that both the aid
and his big friend, the quartermaster,
had been exchanging comments at the
boy's expense He had shouted a
cheery salutation to the engineer in
answer to his friendly nod, then turned
in saddle and looked squarely at the
two on the back seat, and the con
straint in their manner, the almost suf
len look in their faces, told the story
without words.

It nettled Dean frank, outspoken,
straightforward as he had always

been. He hated any species of back
biting, and he had heard of Burleigh
as an adept in the art, and a man to be
feared. Signaling to his sergeant to
keep the column opened out, as the
prairie was almost level now on every
side, he rode swiftly on, revolving in
his mind how to meet and checkmate
Burleigh's insidious moves, for in
stinctively he felt he was already at
work. The general in command in
those days was not a field soldier b\
any means. His office was far away
at the banks of the Missouri, and all
he knew of what was actually going
on in his department he derived from
official written reports much that
was neither official nor reliable he
learned from officers of Burleigh's
stamp, and Dean had never yet set eyes
on him. In the engineer he felt he had
a friend on whomne could rely, and he
determined to seek his^counsel at the
campfire that very night, meantime to
hold his peace.
They were trotting through a shal
low depression at the moment, the
two spring wagons guarded and es
corted by some 30 dusty, hardy
looking troopers. In the second, %he
yellow ambulance, Brooks was
stretched at length, taking it easy,
an attendant jogging alongside. Be
hind them came a third, a big quar
termaster's wagon, drawn by six mules
and loaded with tentage and rations.
Out some 300 yards to the right and
left rode little squads as flankers.
Out beyond them, further still, often
Dean's eyes turned from his charges
to look along the sky*line to the east,
he saw sudden Sign Of excitement- and
commotion^ at the front, sA' sergeant,
riding with two troopers midway be

signaling that there was. mischief
ahead.

galloping out to the%6nt, .cautioning

"Indians!" he called to them, as
soon as they were within earshot.
"But they don't seem to be on lookout
for us at all. They're fooling with
some buffalo over here."
Crawling to the crest, leaving his
hat behind, Dean peered over into the
swale beyond, and this waa what he
saw
Half a mile away to the east tUe
low, concave sweep of the prairie was
cut by the jagged banks and curves
of a watercourse which drained the
melting snows in earlier spring. Alpng
the further bank a dozen buffalo were
placidly grazing, unconscious St the
fact that in the shallow, dry ravine
itself half a dozen young Indians—
Sioux, apparently were lurking,
awaiting the nearer coming of the
herd, whose leaders, at least, were
gradually approaching the edge.
Away down to the northeast, toward
the distant Powder river, the shallow
stream bed trended, and, following
the pointing finger of the scout who
crawled to his side, Dean gazed and
saw a confused mass of slowly moving
objects, betrayed for miles by the
light cloud of dust that hovered over
them, covering many an acre of the
prairie, stretching away down the
vale. Even before he could unsling
his field glass and gaze, his plainscraf
told him what was slowly, steadily
approaching, as though to cross his
front—an Indian village, a big one,
on the move to the mountains, bound
perhaps for the famous race course of
the Sioux, a grand amphitheater in
the southern hills.
And eien as they gazed, two tiny
jets of flame and smoke shot from the
ravine eda^e there below them, and be
fore t'«e dull reports could reach their
ears the foremost bison dropped on his
knees and then rolled over on the soa
and then came the order, at sound of
which, back among the halted troop

socket.
CHAPTER III.
Down along the building railway in
the valiej of the Platte there had been
two years of frequent encounter with
small bands of Indians. Down along
the Smoky Hill, in Kansas, the Chey
ennes were ever giving trouble. Even
around Laramie and Fra\ne, on the
North Platte, settlers and soldiers had
been murdered, as well as one or two
officers, caught alone out hunting, and
the Indians were, of course, the per
petrators. Nevertheless, it had been
the policy of the leaders of the North
ern Sioux to a\ oid any meeting in force
and to deny the complicity of their peo
ple in the crimes committed. Supply
trains to Keno, Kearney and C. F.
Smith, the Big Horn posts of the Boze
man trail, went to and fro with guards
of only moderate size. Officers had
taken their wives and. children to these
far-awaj stations. The stockades were
filled with soldiers' families. Big bands
of Indians roamed the lovely valleys of
the Piney, the Tongue and Rosebud,
near at hand, and rode into full view of
the wary sentries at the stockades, yet
made no hostile demonstration. Offi
cers and men went far up the rocky
canyons of the hills in search of fish
or game, and came back unmolested.
Escorts reported- that they sometimes
marched all daj long side by side with
hunting bands of Sioux, a mile away
and often little parties, squaws and
boys and joung men, would ride con
fidently over and beg for sugar, coffee,
hardtack—anything, and ride off with
their plunder in the best of spirits and
with all apparent good feeling. And
yet the great war chief of the Brules—
Sintogaliska—Spotted Tail, the white
man's friends gave solemn warning not
to trust the Ogallallas "Red Cloud's
heart is bad," he said. "He and his
people are moving from the resrva
tions to the mountains. They mean
trouble." Old traders like Folsom
heard and heeded, and Folsom himself
hastened to Fort Frayne the very week
that Burleigh and his escort left for
Warrior Gap. Visiting at the ranch of
his son in a beautiful nook behind the
Medicine Bow mountains, the veteran
trader heard tidings from an Indian
brave that filled him with apprehen
sion, and he hurried to the fort.
"Is it true," he asked, "that the gov
ernment means to establish a post at
Warrior Gap? Is it true that Maj. Bur
leigh has gone thither?" And when
told that it was, and that only Capt.
Brooks' troop had gone as an escort,
Folsom's agitation was extreme. "Colo
nel," said he to the post commander,
"solemnly I have tried to warn the gen
eral of the danger of that move. I have
told him that all the northern tribes
are leaguing now, that they have deter
mined to keep to themselves the Big
Horn country and the valleys to the
nofth. It will take 5,000 men to hold
those three posts against the Sioux,
and you've barely got 500. I warn you
that any attempt to start another post
up there will bring Red Cloud and all
his people to the spot. Their scouts are
watching like hawks even now. Iron
Spear came to me at my son's ranch
last night and .told me not ten warriors
were left at the reservation. They are
all gone, and the war dances are on in
every valley from the Black Hills to
the Powder. For heaven's sake, send
half your garrison up to Reno after
Brooks. You are safe here. They won't
molest you south of the Platte, at least
not now. All they ask is that you
build no more forts in the Big Horn."
But the colonel could not act with
out authority. Telegraph there was
none then. What Folsom said waa of
sufficient importance to warrant Jiis
hurrying off'a courier" to Laramld,
fully 460 miles southeast, ami order
ing troop'to scoutWross the wild
wastes to the north, while Folsom
himself, unablejto'njiaster hi* anxiety,
decided to accompany the command
*e«t out toward Cantqjinien} Reno.
He long, had had influence with the
Ogallallas. Even now Red Cloud might
listen if he could but find him. The
matter was of such urgency he could
not refrain And so with the gray
troop of the-cavalry, setting forth
within an hour of his coming, rode the
old trader whom the Indians had so
long swor%vby, and he started none
too soon., ., +, „L w^i-i,

IS EASILY CURED.
Feather-Eating* Hen* Are Not Vicious
Bat Victims of a Disease That
Yields to Simple Treatment.
The New York Experiment station
recently published a bulletin on
'•feather eating" among fowls. The
report makes a number of observa
tions on this habit, suggesting that it
is the result of a lack of nitrogenous
matter in the feed and citing experi
ments where fresh cut bone, lean
meat, etc., were fed. "The vice," the
reporj says, "is very uncommon
among fowls that have exercise and
a variety of food, and it is most eco«
nomical to prevent its appearance by
careful feeding, but as the spread i-*
rapid even under a ration which does
not ordinarily seem to encourage its
development, the vice should be
stamped out by the death or removal
of the first offender."
The editor of the Farm and Dairy,
New South Wales, calls attention to
the fact of the failure to mention the
true cause of "feather eating." "It
is now a well-known fact," says the
editor, "that feather eating is due to a
minute parasite (sarcoptis laevis)
which feeds at the roots of the feath
ers, thus irritating the bird and caus
ing them to pluck out their own
feathers. Where feathers are pulled
out by other birds, it is due to the
presence of lice, for which they are
searching."
The prevention and remedy, says
the editor, are simple, as the mite dis
ease is contagious. Isolation of the af
fected bird is the first step, especially
if it be a cock. The mites yield read
ily to treatment of one part of creo
sote to 20 parts of lard or vaseline,
well rubbed into the affected parts.
HOW A HEN FEEDS.
In Her Natural State She Della-hts In
Consuming Hour* in Obtain
ing a Full Meal.
Observe how the hen feeds when o«t
on the range. It is first a blade of
grass or leaf of clover, then a short
chase for a grasshopper or cricket,
says Wallaces' Farmer. She now dis
covers a soft spot in the soil which
she believes worth investigating, and
sets to work with the mining tools
•which nature has given her with a
view of finding out if it is "pay dirt."
A fuzzy weed head is in her path ami
she stops to shatter down a few of
the ripened seeds. She is drawn away
from this repast by another grass
hopper, which springs down in front
of her and jumps away again just in
time to save himseh from the dash
which she has made at him. In place
of the grasshopper which she didn't
get, she nips another clover leaf or
blade of grass. Thus the hen feeds a
little at a time and consuming hours
in obtaining a full meal. It seems
that people who see this every day
might know that throwing down a
measure of shelled corn on a bare
spot is not the proper way to feed the
hens. And those who do this will
receive conclusive proof that there is
something wrong with their feeding
during the time of jear when the
hen has no choice of foou, but must
live on what is given her by the
owner.
BUZZINGS FROM BEED0M.
Good results in queen-rearing are
to be expected only when the col
ony is strong enough to swarm, and
when honey comes in freely from the
fields every day, or when the keeper
feeds his bees freely.
Bees do" not use older larvae if
younger be present.
Bees prefer to build a long deep
comb. They build downward in pref
erence to sidewise.
Experts estimate that an acre of
buckwheat in bloom will yield 25
pounds of honey a day.
French apiarists use "glossometers,"
or tongue measures, of several pat
terns for measuring the length of the
tongues of their bees, in order to de
cide what flowers^they^ can work on
most snecessfully
Bees crossed once with the' Cau
casians are^reported to work red

It costs some 40 to 50 cents a hive
to use/full sheets of foundation in all
the frames, and about the same for
each super in the section boxes. What
is the gain? There will be little or no
drone comb. The useless drones in a
hive will consume more than 50
cents' worth of sugar in a season.
The more drones reared, the less
worker bees there will be to store
honey, says the American Cultivator,
The workers which would occupy
the space that the drone comb fills
might store 50 cents' or a dollar's
worth of honey in a season. Much
honey would have been used up in
making the comb for which the foun
dation is a substitute. We think we
speak within bounds when we say that
every half dollar's worth of founda
tion used in a good colony will add
from one to three dollars to the value
of honey gathered in a season, and
when one is working for extracted
honey so that he can put the empty
combs back, the gain may be mare.
In this connection we would repeat
the advice given before—allow drone
comb only in the best colonies, those
that are gentle and good honey gath
ereis, that these qualities may be
transmitted through the male parent
of Ihe workers as well as through the
queen. There has been little atten
tion paid to this by even the best bee
keepers, but we think it is important,
and if it has not been proven so, it is
time some one did prove it. Do not
allow the bees to be crowded for room
to work in and store their honey
When a super is from one-half to two
thirds full, raise it up and put an
other under it that they may work in
both. By the time the top one is
capped over, it will be time to put a
third one underneath it. With plen
ty of room there will be less tendency
to late swarming.
LIFE ON THE FARM.
It Must Be Elevated So That Its Name
Shall Cease to Be a Synonym
tor Drudgery.
A great deal has been said about
the hardships endured by farmers*
wives, but how much harder do they
have to work than mechanics' wives?
The poultry and the dairy comprise
all the extra work, and these may be
as much or as little as desired. The
farmer's house does not require half
the care, his apparel needs less atten
tion, his fashions are simpler, his
table is easier supplied and with far
better material at little cost the chil
dren are not kept indoors, but go
free as the birds, and, as they grow
older, how many less temptations!
The husband is not away all daj, but
his home is his place of business, and
many are the holidays a farmer can
take without his business suffering.
The time for very hard work on the
farm has gone b\ It is not as it was
fifty or a hundred years ago, when
little machinery lightened the house
keeper's daily work. Then the farm
er's wife wove all the cloth worn by
the family, besides doing the cooking
over an open fireplace. ,NOT the
housework is less arduous, the sewing
is quickly done, and much time can
be given to gardening, visiting and
mental improvement. If we would
have our young men and young wom
en realize that farming is the noblest
occupation on earth we must give the
calling more dignitv, elevating it so
that its name shall cease to be a mere
synonym of drudgery. Home life can
be made very pleasant, even on the
farm.—N. Y. Weekly.

Dior Sneceii with Sheep.
Every little while we come across
accounts of men, who, in a small
way, have made splendid monev out of
sheep. One of the latest is that of an
Iowa man bought some Cotswold ewes
two years ago at $3 per head. He kept
them until they raised two crops of
lambs for him and sold them for $4.25
apiece. The first year their fleeces av
eraged 11% pounds, the second year 12.
One crop of lambs brought $5.50 per 100
pounds, the other $5.50. All the owner
did to fatten them was to give them
corn husks and timothy hay and let
them run in the yard where he was fat

enough for themselves around the

Thousands of other children can thank Dr. Greene and his wonderful
remedy for the strength and health they enjoy. Children to whom it is given
have less sickness, better health, better growth, and longer and more vigorous
lives. Parents should realize that it is their duty to give it to every child who
is not in perfect health. There are no diseases more dreaded by parents than
fits, epilepsy, and St. Vitus' dance. Yet no child would be troubled by them
if Dr. Greene's Nervura were given when the first symptoms appear.
Charles L* McBay, a highly esteemed police
officer, who resides at 14 Myrtle St, Mew Bedford,
Massm, says:
"About two years ago my little daughter became run down in health and suffered
from St Vitus' dance. Soon after she was prostrated by rheumatism, which severely
affected herlow limbs.
"After trying various remedies without obtaining relief, she began taking Dr.
Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy, and experienced immediate benefit. Bhe
continued its use, and after taking five bottles her rheumatism was practically cured. Her
appetite returned, her pains disappeared, she was again able to walk without lameness, her
general health was restored, and she was able to attend school and to play like other
children."
Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy, is the prescription and
discovery of the well-known Dr. Greene, of 35 West Mth Street, New York
City, who is the most successful specialist in curing all forms of nervous
and chronic complaints, and he can be consulted in any case, free of charge,
personally or by letter.

HOW WEAK CHILDREN ARE MADE
STRONG, VIGOROUS AND WELL
Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hallows, of Peckham S Globe Village, Pall RiveP,
Mass., have cause to thank Dr. Greene's Nervura for restoring' to health, and
probably preserving the life of their little son. Almost from infancy Everett
Hallows was troubled with indigestion and nervous troubles, and nothing
seemed to help him. Finally Dr. Greene's Nervura was recommended and tried
with success. A few bottles were sufficient to effect a cure, and to-day the little
one is enjoying the best of health. By the use of Dr. Greene's Nervura the
sickly child was transformed into a happy, hearty, robust boy.
