and months. It swtLed tu some
of as of waitins. Tbe excite
ment of culUtliiR and drilling
tbe men, organizing the companies and
-ttlnjr the recruits nnlfortued acted oa
Die like a tonic. I cea wl to brood over
my disappointment, and, while my love
for Ml Ellen wan a Rreat as ever,
yet I felt that I had regained my mm
hood, and the war spirit, one arouxed
In trie, drove me like a master. The
dy of rjnlttlnj; the Mate was a and one
for ninny. but It Has not so for me.
My hrtirt bounded with Joy when tbe
Order for our tnovement was read at
headquarter. Of all the officers I
think I was the only one whose de
parture w.n net blessed with tears of
mother, filter or sweetheart. My fa
ther, now old iind feeble, came to see
me, and his eye became wet as he
leheld me for the first time In my uni
form and folded me In hi arms. My
mother had lone been dend la fact. I
could scarcely remember her at all.
Hefore saylnc Rtodby to ray father I
pave him a letter and made him prom
ise that should anything happen to me
he would send It to the address on the
Hi- loohed at me sadly for a moment j
a rul h.-.i'l:
"I ii.es she live In the south. Tlownrd.
and Is tint why you have stayed away
I told him yes and turned away ray
hejid that he inicht not see what it had
cost me to eiik of her. He laid his
hand irently on my shoulder and said,
"We I'ulniers have never been lucky
there, my son." and I thought I ntider
HtiMKl ninny little thine In his life und
knew then why he never had anything
but what was kind to wiy of that south
ern country when he heard It under
disfti v"lon. I grasped his hand and
held It for a moment.
"May c;od protect you and bring
you hafi to me again." was all he suld
aud left tue.
Our regiment was only ordered
Onup Meade, but It was a start. Tho
days there were dreary ones, and I
slmll never forget the shout our boys

than I thought.
1 had Utu sent to division headquar

colonel. As I stepped uuder the awn

major's uniform sating at a table read- i

but I saw at once
that it was Itun.
How much he knew I did not know.
I was eager to learn. lie saw me lie
fore I soke. and. ut waiting, as I had
done, he leaped from the table, scat
tering the contents over the floor, und
rushed to me with arms outstretched.
Impulsively he threw one arm around
my neck and with the other grasped
my hand. He saw how deep my feel
ing was and did not speak at once.
Hud." 1 asked finally, "how are all
at thj? lines?" It was the question
which was most natural to my Hi,
for I had len hungering, yet dread

"About the ane. Nothing ever
Changes there." he said.
"Vour father aud mother?" I asked.
"Both are well, tnauk GodT

For a moment h!a face clouded
when he told me she was not like

as if soUie a had aUot acvos his
mind for the flrst Uu.e, he dropped my
lutt.il and, looking Bat f" i rWjL Wt Un

left," I said.
I believe you. Palmer," he said, lay
ing his band on my shoulder again.
"But keep your secret, whatever It may
be, for It is hers also, uud you have no
right to betray it."
I grasped his hand again and stood
looking out Into the dusty camp street
and over the hills In the distance.
"Who la with them?" I asked pres
ently. "My younger brother, little Brent. lie

He then told me that It was Miss El
len who had urged him to go to the i
front and who had )dr'n him the i
istreupth to leave the Flues. From his ;
colonel I learned afterward that he i
had enlisted as a private, but was soon
plveo a commission for an excellent
record, aud he owed his present place
to his ability to handle men and not
to political influences.
After that flrst meeting we saw each
other daily, and when not on duty to
gether we would light our pipes and
wander through the dusty and fever
trlrken utrtn-tn, smoke and talk of

I isease had broken out in camp, and
trt.hoid raged with deadly effect dur
ing that long, cruel summer. One even-
Ing I went to bed feverish and not feel
ing myself at all. The day had been
neof horror in tLe camp, and dis
patches were flying between headiunr
ters and the war department. The
evening shades brought no relief to the)
tired soldiers. No one seetned to be
asleep, and the men were stretched
outside their dog teuta. The ground
was dry and hot. and the moon bung
tu the heavens like a great ball of flre.
Just as the midnight hour was called
some one In the direction of
the Kentucky regiment, that lay across
the road from us, begin to whistle
the ")ld Kentucky Home." The notes
fell sweet and clear across the tented
field. Hefore he had finished a bar
pome one tok tip the tune and whis
tled a second. One after another Join

was hardly a man In the regiment so
It teemed to me. who was not whis

had been inspired, and I think the
camp slept with sweeter rest for hav
ing heard the serenade. I fell into a
fitful sleep and waked to partial con
sciousness only when reveille was
I made an effort to rise, but fell back,
too weak to move again. The surgeon
came In shortly after that and took my
temperature. It was with a sickening
sense of humiliation that I heard blm
' say that it was a bad case of fever.
Before I could be moved Bud came in,
and I learned afterward tait he feared
' I would be taken down. T turned my
eyes to him In mute appeal. He toucta-
1 ed rnv hand kindly, and I drew hlrn
; near me.
"If I should die. Bud. will yon tell
j Miss Ellen that I have always loved
her and that iuy last thoughts were of
her?" I said In a half whisper.

let him have charge of this patient.
"His life is dearer than my own." he
I saw the surgeon nod his head
and beard blm add that it would take
great nursing to pull me through.
It was the last thing I remember foi
many a day. I heard afterward how
he nursed me; how he slept by my cot
at night and sat by it all day. After-
ward he told me that I talked only of
the P ne. In my delirium, and for the
first time he had learned that it was I
who had taken up the mortgage and j
reduced the interest. The day came ;
when the surgeons despaired of my j
life, and then it was that he tele
graphed bis 'sister. I have that faded
bit of paper on which le wrote the j
message framed and banging over my j
desk and underneath it her answer.
"Lieutenant Palmer lying at point of
death. Your name Incessantly on his j
lips. Don't come if you think best, but j

They told me that her nursing saved
my life. One touch from her hand and
my delirium would subside, and. though
I lay unconscious for days, she took
l!ttle rest, and when she would He
down it was Kud who would take her
place at my side.
One morning just after orders came
for my regiment to start for Cuba my
eyes opened to the world and my
senses returned. Bud was by my side.
I knew then that Miss Kllen had been
there, for the influence of her presence
was with me still.
"Where is she?" I asked.
"Getting a little needed rest," he an
swered. "The crisis was passed last
night, and he knows you are saved to
Tho big, strong fellow could stand it
no longer. He knelt by my bed and.
holding my hand, buried his face in
the covering. I knew that he was
weeping for very Joy for his sister. I
turned over wearily and laid my hand
on his henj.
"Bud," I whispered, "has she for
Yes, Howard." he said. "She has
told you so herself many n time in the
lonz watches of the nieht
and when I awoke Miss Ellen was by
my side. She it was who told me that
my regiment was going and held my
hand in sympathy, for she knew how
It would hurt me to le left behind.
She read me the president's noble
words of praise for the men who had
answered to the call for troops and,
drawing from her pocket a little Blip
of paper, rend me what the executive
had to say of those who bad fallen ill
with fever and who had served their
country only in the camp. It was only
a short message from our president In
answer to an invitation to come to
C'hlckamauga. but it cheered many a
poor fellow who, as I, lay stricken
with the fever and who was forced to
eeo his comrades march away to duty
at the front. It was the message Just
as it came, and as she read it her eyes
filled with tears:
Executive Mansion, Washington.
Major General Commanding Camp Thom
as, Chickamauira :
Replying to your Invitation. I beg to
say that It woul.l give me great pleasure
to show by a personal visit to Chleks
mauga park my high regard for the 40.0X)
troops of your command who so patriot
ically responded to the call for volunteers
and who hav t.een for upward of two
months making ready for any service and
sacrifice th country mtght require. My
duties, however, will not admit of absence
from Washington at this time. The high
est tribute that can be paid to the soldier
Is to say that he performed his full duty.
The field of duty Is determined by his
government, and wherever that chances
to be Is the place of honor. All have
helped In the great cause, whether with
fever in camp or tn battle, and when
peace comes all will be alike entitled to
the nation's gratitude.
Afjer that she talked to me of the
Pines, atid then it was she told me she
had never read rfy letters to her, that
she was afraid she might forgive me
and 'that she did not want to do that
eveu l;i bor heart. When I was strong
euough to sit up I was given a leave,
and It was Miss Eilen herself who un
dertook to make ail arrangements for
i niy Journey to the Pines, for it was
there that 1 wanted to go to recuper
ate. Finally the day came when my
regiment was to move. I was propini
up with pillows that I might see it
break camp and march away.

The village in question lay but some
300 yards distant and proved to be of

after shutting and opening his mouth
a few times, he fell off the rock and
sank like a stone.
The headman was quite pleased, say
ing that the animal took some one,
usually a woman or child, at least

about every second man seemed tQ be

Lethal Odor Has the Effect

of the poisonous flowers" which was
said to be located In the dense and
pathless wilderness occupying the vast
stretches between the headwaters of
the Orinoco and the Andes. Two
weeks passed without any Incident out
of the ordinary. But one morning
there was a perceptible smell of flow
ers in the air. When tbe orcnia nunter
and his Indians camped that night the
jungle smells bad been entirely lost in
the cloying scent. Many of the band
refused to go farther.
As Grayson and the others proceed
ed the rankly sweet and oppressive
odor became stronger, attacking; the
senses like a narcotic. One after an
other the remaining; Indians collapsed
till only Grayson and the guide were
left, pushing onward. The orchid
hunter felt as if he was being attacked
by the insidious power of opinm, but
retained enough consciousness to be
come aware that, gleaming through the
trees ahead, be saw flowers of huge
size and vivid colors, many hued dus
ters of them hanging in trails.
It was the death orchid!
When he recovered his senses he
found himself being carried back to
camp, where the rest of his porters
had remained. Many of the bend
were severely sick and many half wit
