DAILY SHORT STORY
In the manor lsouse of plantation in
Kentucky two Confederate generals
rr.-t to arrange a plan of campaign
against the Federal tnois occupying; a
strong position not far to the north.
Shortly before the interview was closed
one of them took the memoranda that
bad been accumulating, threw it iu u
stove anil ignited it.
Now. I'olly I'ajue. an inmate of the
houe. was much interes-ted' in what
had transpired between the two gener
als. Her father was lighting as a colo
nel in the Union army. Her mother
and her sister were at house and. being
ardent sympatlrizerr with the southern
cause, were employed in conveying in
formation of Union mow-mems to the
Confi-derate authorities. Such was tlie
singular division in the I'ayne family on
the jjreat question then at issue. Isabel
I'ayne, the elder sister, was engaged to
Major I'owninir of the Confederate ar
my, while Dolly was as good as en
gaged to Captain J Vllnwes of tlie Union
army, both men being wiili their re
spective forces in the neigliliorliood.
The generals had no sooner departed
than Miss Dolly went into the room
they had left and began a still hunt for
something of imKjrtance they might
have left behind to take to her lover,
whom she was to meet that very night.
Not a scrap of paper lay on the table,
nor could she tind one on the floor.
Looking into the stove she found one
half burned bit. Withdrawing it, she
saw nouiething written on it in pencil:
B.'n ilix-iaion to attack before daylight.
Turn enemy's left. As soon as attention
Is drawn there J.'s brigade leaii on their
right; then V.'n. then l..'s. All engaged as
This was every word. She turned
the paper over, examined tlie back and
held it up to the light to see if there
were not some faint lines she could not
otherwise trace. There was nothing
more except '"2'.il" indented in the pa
per by what might have been the wrong
end of a penholder.
It did not take Dolly I'ayne long to
figure out from this that the generals
had arranged for an attack on the I'ihI
erals just before daylight, probably on
the next morning, which was the
of the month. Three hours later, just
as tiusli was falling, she mounted her
horse ami rode away from the planta
tion. As slw? cantered out of the gate
who should canter in but the Confed
erate officer to whom her sister was
Harold." said Isaltel as her lover
was dismounting. "Dolly has gone off
somewhere. I think to meet that con
temptible Yankee she's infatuated with.
I've ordered my horse and am going 1o
follow her. 1 w ant you to po with ine."
Major Downing consented, and the
two set off at ouce. Koth Downing and
1'ellowes were lietween the lines and
not under Hag of truce or anything to
bar their condition as enemies. Dolly
I'ayne was going on a far different
quest than her sister a ml had armed
herself with a revolver, which she car
ried in her hand concealed by the fold:,
of her riding skirt. Major Downing
anil her sister, not expecting that she
would ride rapidly, followed slowly, es
pecially as they didn't care to make
known their presence inopportunely.
Suddenly on a rise in tin." road they
saw the silhouettes of those
sought. Turning into a wood,
proceeded unseen till they came
enough to hear Dolly's voice.
"I looked everywhere for something
more, but found nothing. This was
the only scrap not destroyed."'
"A very important scrap," said
lowes. "Who were the generals?''
"I don't know their names."
"Anil von re sure this paper
placed in the stove by them?"
Til stake my life on it."
Isabel took iu the situation at once
and whispered an explanation to her
"He shall never get back with that
paper." saiil Downing and. riding for
"Throw up your hands:"
Captain l-'ellowcs found himself cov
ered before he could draw his weapon.
You have the advantage of me." he
said. "I suppose I must surrender."
The Confederate proceeded to disarm
his prisoner and while doing so felt
viinething -old against the back of his
neck and heard Dully say:
"Shall I fire or do you give inV"
Downing dared not stir. Fellowes.
taking advantage of his enemy's handi
cap, drew lus revolver, and the Confed
erate was covered by two weapons in
stead of one.
Meanwhile Isabel, who witnessed the
scene, wrung her hands and wept that
she could do nothing to aid her lover.
"Drop your pitoI." said Captain Fel
lowes to his eneuiv.
Downing' pistol fell with a thud. Is
abel spurred her horse forward to pick
it up. but she wa forestalled by her
sister, i lien tol lowed a hurried confer
ence lietween Captain Fellowes ami
Doily, at the end of which Dolly cried
out to her sister. "Throw- up your
hands. Is; you're my prisoner." Isabel
turned her horse's head to leave, but
her sister rode tip Inside her and. seiz
ing her bridle rein, detained her.
The upshot was that Major Downing
and Isabel I'ayne were conducted with
in the Union line and held there until
tlie expected attack bad taken place.
Their detention was of short duration.
for tlie Union forci" were drawn up in
line of battle long befere day ready to
receive the enemy. The Confederate
generals, seeing that they hail failed to
surprise tbe Union troops, soon aban
doned the attempt.
Often s!nee the war at reunions of
the Fayne family the two brothers-in-
law meet, and Fellowes never ceases to
twit Downing on his failure to recover
the paper. A for Mrs. Fellowes, she
usually refers to her sister as "my pris
