'Yonder am tho invaders nnd cat-

smite them hip and thigh till tho power

Still Captain Duncan deliberated,
aud it is doubtful ,if he would hevegono
into the action had not Black Eagle rind
his warriors otuwd firo irom the cliffs,
a fact that encouraged the fugitives to
make a stand.
Hiding quietly to tho front cf tho
line, the handsome yonng officer in com
mand railed out calmly:
Iu nn instant the men sat straight in
their saddles, grasped the bridle reins
in their left hands, and. with their saber
hilts resting against their right hips.
they gazed fixedly nt an imaginary line
50 feet in front. Even the jadrd horses
pricked up their cars in anticipation of
tho next order.
"Forward, trot!" Tho lino moved
forward to tho music of jingling spurs
and clattering scabbards.
The next instant the thrilling notes of
tho "Charge" rang out. From each
man's hip a blade flashed high in the
air, and from ench rider's lips burst the
cavalry cheer: "Charge! Charge!"
"Wo surrender! Wc surrender!"

Captain Duncan rede off to give or

towhere his own friends were gathering
acn tho valley near where Captain
Brandon had been set tip as a target On

The Prophet looked into the center cf
the group and. saw Dr. Blaiichard plac
ing Henry Kyle and Kusaat on two
stretchers that had been hastily-con
structed of rifles and blankets.
"Are they deed?" asked the Prophet.
"Xot yet Come, let u talk apart.
We Cin follow them to tho grave."
They walked nndtr tho towering
rocks end watched the sad procession
forming and moving across tho valley.
All tho Kyles and the Blanchards were
there, tat the wauiEg of the women
tcld that the journey of one cf them
would not end, but rather begin when
his bearers had Ret him down again.
"The rifles wero raised to destroy me,
and I looked into the black muzzles
with a feeling that they were the last
things cu which my earthly eyes would
rest, but, like a gnardian cngel, he drop
ped down from the sky and saved me,"
sobbed tho captain.
The Prophet laid his hand on the cap
tain s broad shoulder and looked into
his Mood ntaincd fnee with an expression
of nnutterablo questioning and tender

The two fricud3 walked arrets tho
valley, and on tho wcy they passed tho
bodies of a number of dcr.d outlaws
with their ghastly faces upturned to tho
sun. Among them was Fairplay, his
bronzed hands still clutching his rifle.
As they were nesting the cave Captain
Duncari met them and greeted Captain
