make this call. The victory which he

went to make him liehcvetbnt he wonld

"Mr. Kenton believed it hi dnty aa

"And instead of deserting be seems

" Yon do Mr. Kenton gross injustice!"'
exclaimed Marian as her color came
and went, and her eyes looked brighter
than bo had ever seen them before. "I
have seen nothing in bini to lead me to
believe that hewonld countenance any

never recorded as deserters."

be my fault if something doesn't hap

Something did happen two or three
somethings liofore the captain's return
to camp. Ike Baxter thoroughly under
stood what Captain Wyle desired, and
he wss eager for an opportunity to car

both were on gnnrd about the camp he
wheeled in his beat, drewnp his musket
and deliberately fired to kill. Kenton
was hardly 20 feet distant, face turned
away and completely at bis mercy. Tho
heavy bullet passed between his arm
and side and sped across the camp and
killed a poor sergeant as he lay sleeping
on bis tied. The wonld be assassin plead
ed accident, nnd it was natural to be
lieve that it was such. Kenton was one
of tho first to excuse bim, nnd not the
slightest suspicion cf tho soldier's mur
derous intentions found lodgment in his
Another incident, and one with far
more pleasant surroundings, occurred
tho very next day. A message came to
the commanding officer of the guards
from Stonewall Jackeon tojscnd Private
Kenton to bis headquarters. The gen
eral looked at the young man before
him for half a minute before saying:
"You beaded the detachment which
captured the gun in a band to band
fight. You did nobly. Who is captain
of yonr company;"
"Captain Wylo, sir."
"Ah, yes. Captain Trnesdalo was
wounded and crippled for life. I see.
And you nro still a private?"
"H'm t 1 ought to have remembered
yon, bnt I have been busy very busy.
Is your captain with bis company?"
"Ko, sir. lie left several days ago on
"il'm! And baven't you asked for i
"I have not."
"Well, we'll see about it later on.
Tomorrow I shall bn away.- The day
after at 10 o'clock in the morning I
wish you to report here tome. Stay I I
will write an order to that effect, which
will lie your antbority for leaving camp.
Show it to yonr commanding officer."
And when Kenton returned to the
guards and related bis interview and
exhibited the order all congratulated
bim all except Ike Baxter. Tbat in
dividual felt himself greatly wronged,
and his mutterings took the form of
"Drat that dnrned Yankee, bnt he's
jest gwine to boss this bull army if the
captain doan dun hurry back to camp!"
As with the Federals at Arlington, so
with tho Confederates on the fields and
meadows to tho south. Battles were
fought on tho eastern coast and on the
western rivers battles which made
history were fonght in North Carolina,
Kentucky, Tennessee, and Missouri, bnt
the Army of Virginia remained in its
camps. Its leaders realized from the
beginning tbat Virginia wonld be the
real battleground of tho war, and that
the Army of Virginia wonld be called
npon to render heroic defense. Every
hoar gained was an. advantage, every
day a gain ot men and material and
When Rcyal Kenton reported to
General Jackson as per order, be was
asked if be knewthe country to the
north of tho Confederate outposts. He
was forced to reply that he was entirely
ignorant of it. . .
"This is a disadvantage, but one yon
can overcome," taid the general. "We
are in need of a few more brave men at
the front to act as scouts. Wonld yon
have any objection to serving in tbat
"I I should not like to act the part
of a spy." stammered Kenton in much
"Nor would I ask yon to. A spy is
generally a bravo man and often moved
solely by patriotism, but few of them
are soldiers, and the profession is un
der a stigma. As a scont yon go in
your uniform, secure suoli information
as you can in a legitimate way, and if
captured you are treated as a prisoner
of war. Yon can take a comrade with
yon or go alone, as you elect. Do not

"I will go and go alone," replied
Kenton after a moment's thought.
"Very well, I am glad to hear it
You can now return to your company,
and during the day I will send the
proper order to your captain. Upon
yonr return report to me direct, and I
have no doubt you will bring informa
tion of value."
That afternoon Captain Wyle return
ed to bis company, and when he re
ceived tho order detailing Private Ken
ton for teintuirary duty at headquarters
i.d learned its obji-ct he was almost
tempted to congratulate bim. As be
tween captain and private or between
man and man, he would have done so
with great heartiness, but as a rival
lover he conld not.' When Ike Baxter
had related the story of tho attempted
"removal," as ho called it, he expected
words of praise, bnt they were not ut
tered. On the contrary, his action was
severely criticised, and he went away
to sulk nnd growl.
"Understand me," 6aid tho captain
as Iko lietrnyed his disappointment by
word nnd look, "I don't want murder
or assassination. I bate him because
he's a Ycnkee and because he is an en
emy among us. I want to drive bim

thing I can to reward yon, but don't
shoot him down in cold blood. Now
that General Jackson has taken him un
der his wing we must be more careful
Armed with a pass that would take
liim fhrongU the Confederate lines and
pickets. Royal Kenton made his way to
ward Washington. When be reached
the Inst ootpost, the officer in command
gave bim the lay of the country along
that front, the position of the Federal
videttes so far as known, and named
many farmers who sympathized with
the Confederate cause and would give
him shelter. It was about 10 o'clock
in the forenoon when Kenton left the
last post behind him and disappeared in
the woods. He knew in a general way
what was required of bim. It was. first,
to pnsh as near tho Federal lines as pos
sible, and then to estimate the strength
sf camps or marching columns, locate
forts and earthworks and seek to dis
cover the strength of positions. Spies
go in disguise and often remain in a
camp for days. Scouts are saved from
the halter when caught only because
they are not "an enemy in disguise."
The spy is detested simply because he is
generally moved by a financial consid
eration and is often a person who will
work for the side paying him the best.
Tho neutral ground between the two
irmies was a strip of territory from
three to six miles wide. Reconnois
aances were almost of daily occurrence
from one side or the other, and cavalry
commands patrolled the highways at
" Tho sentiment of tho Virginia farm
?rs was overwhelmingly Confederate,
and whenever Kenton identified himself
be was given all information at hand.
During the first two days he had several
narrow escapes from Federal cavalry
patrols, and on the third day be was
treated to a double surprise. The farm
:r with whom he had remained over
night bad recommended bim to one
much nearer the Federal outposts to se
cure additional information. He reach
ed this place about 11 o'clocK in the
forenoon, and tho first face he saw was
that of Marian Percy, the next that of
The Jlrtt face heanwiras that of Harlan
ber mother. The meeting appeared to
be as pleasant to all as it was unex
pected. Tho Percys had arrived only
two days before in hopes to remove the
farmer's wife, who was a relative, to
their borne in the valley. The woman
was ill too ilUto stand the journey,
and tbey would wait for a few daya in
hopes of an improvement. The house
had been visited daily by parties from
both armies, bat thus far no violence
had been offered nor had anything been
taken from the farm.
For almost the.fucst time abt.ee he had
known her Koyal Kenfori was left alone
with Marian Percy for an hour. They
sat under the apple trees, and he told
ber the details of the battle of Bnll Run
aa far aa he had gathered them, of his
interviews with Jackson, the object of
bis scout, his hopes and fears of the fu
ture. . ; -.; ;
" Yon enlisted to serve yonr state,
she said when opportunity came. " This
is no longer a question of what a state
may or may not do. It is no longer Vir
ginia, bnt a southern confederacy. Do
yon feel the same obligation?"
"Does the same obligation exist?" he
queried in reply.
"Certainly not. I have dared to so as
sert and have almost been called a trai
tor for my language. One does not need
to be a politician or the daughter of a
politician to realize that the success of
the newborn confederacy means the
downfall of the republic. And yet Vir
ginians cannot return to their homes
and lay aside their weapons of war."
"Thus far I have cast my fortunes
with Virginia," replied Kenton, "and
it is too late to retreat now, even if I so
desired. What the end will be no man
They talked of other things as they
sat on the rude bench Farmer Hastings
had constructed tbat he might smoke
his pipe in the shade and still look out
over the dusty highway which ran past
his door. There was no declaration of
lovo by word of mouth, but I think that
some conclusion was arrived at just the
same, and that both were happy over it
in a silent way.
Dinner had just been eaten when one
of tho colored servants announced the
approach of a body of Federal cavalry
from the direction of Washington. Ken
ton counted them while they were yet
half a mile away and made the number
to be 20. It was a patrol, and it might
stop or pass on.
"You seethesirnation'said Marian
as she approached Kenton, who was
carefully examining bis revolver. "You
could not beat them off single banded,
and if yon are discovered here yon will
be taken prisoner and the rest of ns sub
jected to annoyance and insult. Yon
must go at once."
"And leave yon unprotected?"
"Onr people have an idea that tho
Yankees have horns and hoops," ehe
Imgbed, "but I have lived among them
for years, as yon know. They will not
make war on old men and defenseless
women. Go! There is no time to lose 1
They are surely going to stop here!"
Kenton retreated through the orchard
to the cover of a stone wall 200 feet in
rear of the house. He was scarcely
sheltered when the troopers filed into
th yard through the gate and surround
ed the bouse. The captain in command
dismounted and was about to rap on the
wida open front door when Marian ap
peared. "Well?" eho queried as he looked at
her in the greatest surprise for half a
"Ah, exense me!" he stammered. "I
am looking for some one a man a
man who is supposed to be a Confeder

"There is only one white man here
the old farmer himself. We have seen
no stranger. You are at liberty to
"Oh, no, no! The word of a lady is
amply sufficient. Perhaps be took the
other road. Sergeant, re-form the men
in the highway."
When the troop bad disappeared np
the dusty highway, Kenton returned to
the house to say goodby to its inmates,
and half an hour later be had turned
his face southward, satisfied that he had
secured all information possible for a
scont to pick np. The farmer posted
him as to where be would likely strike
the Confederate outposts and warned
him what highways to avoid, bnt on
that very day McClellan was pushing
his cavalry forward and seizing new
territory. At 4 o'clock in the afternoon
as Kenton, who had been traveling in
the fields and under cover of the forest,
was about to cross a highway he beard
the click, click of a carbine, and a voice
called to him:
"Halt where yon are, or you are a
It was a Federal vidette, dismounted
and posted among the bushes which
fringed tlie highway. Kenton looked
np to find himself covered by a carbine.
Both were on the same side of the road.
He had approached the vidette in rear,
and had be exercised more vigilance

time to avoid him. The men were not
over 80 feet apart when Kenton got the
Bnmmons to halt.
Many of the Federal troops were still
dressed in the gray uniforms supplied
by their respective states, while the
Confederates had a variety of uniforms,
and it was difficult to detect one side
from the other. The vidette bad done
bis duty in halting the prowler, but he
was not sure what sort of game he had
"Throw up your hands!" he com
manded as he advanced.
Kenton obeyed. He was armed only
with a revolver, and as that was hidden
from sight he appeared defenseless.
"Now, then, who are you?" asked
the Federal aa he came to a halt scarce
six feet away.
"I might ask yon the same question,"
replied the scout, making a great effort
to appear cool and indifferent.
"I know you might, but I guess you
won't! Answer my question!"
"I have information to give."
"What is it?"
"Which Bide are yon on?"
"Oh, it makes difference, does it?
Well, I'm a Confederate. What's yonr
Kenton looked about him in an un
easy manner as if he had fallen into a
trap and contemplated making a bolt to
"Say, yon look like a reb, bnt act like
a Yank," langbed the man aa be low

"I'll do better 'n that I'll go with

"Plenty of them."
"Well, come along, and I'll ride
down the road with you to the post

catch a reb scont who's been sneaking
along onr front for two or three days.
What did you say your name was?"
"And mine is Fisher. Hear anything

"Not a word, though the army seems
to lie all ready."
"It is ready, and why McClellan
doesn't pnsh down and walk all over the
"Throw vp ymtr hands!" he commanded
us he advanced.-
Confederate army is a puzzle to me.
Seems as if he was waiting to let them
get a good ready. Everybody is giving
him bail Columbia, but I suppose he
knows what he's about. What com
mand do you belong to?"
The pair had lieen 6lowly walking
side by side down to where the cavalry
man's horse was hitched to the limb of
a tree. The Federal had quite accepted
Kenton as belonging to his side and was
puining to ao mm a gooa tarn ty
guiding bim to tho reserve. Kenton
mast avoid that. He had hoped to do it
by etrategem, and he bad excuses al
ready on his tongue when asked for bis
command. Answer he must, but as he
did not know the exact location of a
single Federal regiment his answer
would probably betray him. He was
hesitating when the trooper repeated:
' What regiment do you belong to, and
where is it stationed?"
"I'm independent," replied the scont
as be suddenly snatched at the carbine
and twisted it out of the other's grasp.
"Now throw up yonr hands! Up high
er! I see yon have a revolver, but if
you drop your hands by so much as an
inch I shall fire on yon! Forward!
March into the woods!"
"By George, but yon don't tell me
you are a rebel!" exclaimed the aston
ished and bewildered cavalryman.
"I don't know yet whether I am or
not," replied Kenton. "I'm a Virgin
ian and in the Confederate army, and
whether we are rebels or patriots is a
question I haven't settled. Keep to the

"Yon are pretty near right abont

" What are you going to do with me?"
asked the man as be was disarmed and
permitted to face about.
"How far is it to the nearest Confed

"How many videttes between us and
"Three or fonr. You are not going
to kill me out here in cold blood?"
"Y'ou may rest easy on that score,"
replied Kenton. "A year hence war
will mean devastation, destruction,
murder and assassination, but men's
hearts are not brutalized yet I must
reach the Confederate outpost, but I
can't do it by the road."
"I don't think you could fool all the
others as you did me," said the cavalry
man, wnn a sickly smile.
' The question is what to do with yon?
If I set you at liberty, you'll raise an
