things around titni to arouse Interest,
which to the plainsman meant safety
or . danger, life or . death. . but which
would mean to such a man, ludeeJ, no
more than so many blades of grass.
This silent excitement of the solitary

city man woald see nothing but dull
monotony, was something more excit

alone or with one or two chosen com

was a .precaution that favored your
own safety, as very scout naturally
picked the very best mounts and rode
one and had what is called a "lead
horse." well trained, to follow, and
stand by him in every emergency. - He
had only himself to lorfk out for, and

kept so close almost as to touch each

my position for fear of losing the di

and, of course, suffered greatly from
frostbite.- I dared not dismount.- as
did many of the others. General Carr

my ear with a piece of saddle blanket,

was frozen, and for a time It gave me
Intense pain' and suffering, and up to

pertinacity we reached the -gap, and
when I had -made the point success
