OUTSIDE THE LINES.
A STOUT rOR afXMORIAI. DAT BY CAPT. GEO.
Oopyrtght, 1889. by American Press Association.
m a Tillage cemetery on the
lower border of Pennsyl
vania there are two proves,
strangely connectml, that
are viidtwl each Decoration
day by a Grand Army com
rade and bis littlo family group two graves
The Union army liad driven the Confeder
ate invaders from northern soil in the Gettys
burg campaign and followed their Dying
alumna across the Rappahannock and Rapi
4an rivers. One day, wbilo pnasinir along
the turnpike am on 5 the rich farms of Orange
eounty, Sergt. Everett Anilros, of the
Twentieth, was stationed with a gnard at the
an trance to a farm lane common in the
outta leading from the road to tbo bouse.
Around the farm there were signs of life, a
thing unusual in Virginia whenever the
Union army passed by. When the sergeant
and his men took the post they saw a young
woman sitting under a tree near the road,
and two children playing near. To these
spectators the army moving part, horsemen,
footmen, heavy canuon, drawn by stout,
teams, was a holiday show, but wbat-
' their thoughts, they looked on In silence.
The general bad given Andros' guard or
ders to permit no soldier to go to the house.
The tedious tramp of the army went on for
hours, and somethneB the soldiers, chafing at
their .fatigue and privations, tried to pass at
the gate or to climb tho fonce above or below
the guard. When they were stopped they
gave surly retorts for the Interference.
"Humph 1 You Ye afraid well take some
tiling' from these 'secesh,'" one would say.
Another would add: "Serves 'em right If we
do." But -the guards would motion them
sternly to move on. Sometimes these rough
words, though aimed at the guards, were
meant for the young woman, and through
her the people of her class. But the keenest
allies passed unheeded by the one whose
watching as the hours dragged seemed to be
weary vigil, for curiosity must tire out at
Could the long lines of soldiers hold
special attraction for herf
At last the sergeant, through pity for the
defenseless maiden and her wards, and to
pare the temper of his men, walked along
the road opposite the watcher, touched hia
cop in salute, and said:
"Pardon me, miss, bat I think yoa ought
to leave thia spot Yon are exposed here,"
A gentle lifting of the eyes was the only
sign that the words were heard. Another
ally from some soldier whom the guard pat
way with force gave point to the warning,
and Andros repeated it In the same friendly
tone, adding: "Yoa will be called a- a
nbel, and, perhaps, a spy." - Still no answer,
other than a nervous turning of the face to
ward the speaker and a quick withdrawal,
for her eyes at the instant had been fixed
sharply upon the ranks in the road.. The reg
iment passing was the Pennsylvania, The
men rolled and Jostled along, giving vent
in sallies of repartee, or song, or complaint
at the day's long march. But there was one
of the number who did not Join in the rail
lery or the complaints. Could he have been
seen before the column reached this point
marked changes would have . been noted in
hia actions. Now, his eyes would roam over
tho country, and again rest In the thick
dusty woof under foot. When his rank came
abreast of the lane, this soldier, a private in
toe line, held his head bent like the weariest
of hia fallows, but at the moment the guard
was wrangling with soma burly ruffian, who
Struggled to get in at the gateway, and when
the silent marcher looked up on the outcry,
hi eras met those of the young woman. Both
frfnahtd, and' be ? turned and hurried on.
Quickly now the other called the children
to bar and led them to the house. Andros
iinpiiid the last scene between the guard
i tha would be forager- had shown the
stubborn miss that the roadside was no place
for her. i : . ' . '
an that happened here was unusual
Where the army marched or camped the ott-
1 asked the commanders for bouse guards,
was sent unasked. Bat this young
woman, relying, it seemed, on her own" pret
ence by the road, had not asked for protec
tion, and her conduct had left no room for
suspicion that she might be friendly with the
enemy. Secession women Invariably stayed
indoors when bluecoats were about.
Twilight came on; the army continued its
tramp. The guards began to wonder if they
were to be kept at this station all night, when
the shuffling, shambling form of a negro was
seen in the lane. Now for news, thought the
guard, for the negroes were the unfailing
sources of local knowledge, and it was often
good news to the soldiers to know what river
or road their camp was on, or even the names
of formers and planters round about When
the negro neared the gate he stopped, cap in
hand, and eyed the soldier pacing with his
gun. The sergeant called him to come on,
but he stood in his tracks and stammered the
words, "Y-y-oung miss sent me!" The guard
halted. Andros drew near. "Young miss'
sent me to say. 'Please come to de house.' "
"Who is your young miss, Sambo?"
"She named Ml Ellwood, sah. Ole miss'
he named Ellwood,-too, sab. But I'se no
Sambo. I'se named Patrick Henry, sah.
"Patrick Henry Ellwood of courser"
"Oh, no, mars. I'se no Ellwood, sah. I
belong to Mistah Mars Qeyton."
'Wli':af your master P said Andros,
"ily :.., sahr Ole mars' dead, salu
Young mars done gone. Dunno, sah, whah
he done gone, sah."
Andros knew that he could not get full de
tails from a negro at once, and as there were
no white men on the place be shouldered his
musket and went to extend his acquaintance
at Ellwood farm.
"Ole Miss," he learned on the way, was
head mistress, and had been twice widowed.
The last master, CoL Ellwood, had been
killed in the Confederate army. A son of
the first master, Capt. Seyton, was now in
that army, and still another son, owner, as
law! had aura, of Patrick Henry and one or
two more on the place, was a wanderer.
"Mars Ellwood and my Mars Edward nevvy
could get on together," the old man said sad
ly. "Young Miss," Evadne (called Eva by
the negroes), was an Ellwood, having been a
minor when she received a step father.
The lane opened into a wide lawn, with a
garden and yard and a path ran from the
track to a side door. As bo passed the front
of the house an old stylo, cross shaped man
sion Andros saw that rough burs were nailed
over doors and wiinfews, giving a very de
serted look. The hock part was on and the
negro went to the doorway of a room between
the parlor and kitchen. Now the heroine of
the occasion stepped out on the porch, and
by a simple nod and gesture, showed the sol
dier a seat by the door. Andros saluting,
aid, "No, miss, 1 am on duty. How can I
serve you P Ho spoke with studied coldness.
Without confusion or change of color, the
other said, "You are certainly welcome. I
sent to you because I wish to know if there
must be a guard here at the laneP
"N no, ma'am, no must about it unless
you wish. May 1 ask whyP She thought a
moment and finally said: "There is no objec
tion to a guard, yet it might be unpleasant,"
The speaker was a type of fair haired, can
did womanhood, a winner of notice rather
by her manner than by physical beauty, with
which, however, she was richly endowed.
She was earnest, and inclined now to be con
fidential, and continued: "I regret you can
not rest yourself here (motioning to the broad
seat) ; yon soldiers seem to be always in mo
tion, and I have something to tell you."
There were no white people in sight except
ing the fragile young woman, but from win
dows and doors and the corners of houses and
sheds, the shining faces of the slaves peered
out curiously. Andros was assured by this
that no enemies lurked at hand or the n. -gross
would be in hiding. He sat down and
Mis Ellwood drew a chair In front as
though to screen him from prying eyes, and
said: "I beg a favor, and that of you person
ally. It is too trifling, too selfish a matter to
take to your generals, busy with other cares."
Such frankness was Itself winning, and An
dros answered: "I shall serve you if I can
and do my duty."
"You cau be true'to duty," she said. "I
have a friend, a near friend, in your army
whom I wish to have come here, to-night, if
possible, or the next night, and, it may be,
Andros arose, nervously, but the other, not
noticing hia mood, continued: "There is a
family secret at the bottom of this and I can
go no farther now; but I con summon him
through our people, if you will direct them
to his camp, and let him come and go yes,
yoa shall come wHfk kbn if that will answer
He was all soldier now, and searching the
face before him,' said, brusquely, "In what
regiment does your friend serve P
"I'll keep your secret, and if I can that is,
if my men stay on at the road, I will let you
meet at least on my post, but I promise noth
ing beyond that."
With a touch of his cap he drew his gun to
his shoulder and hurried to his post. When
it was fully dark the old negro come sham
bling along again, a negro lad holding a lan
tern in front of him. Andros directed them
to the camp of the Pennsylvania, and
then repeated the orders to his men to allow
no one to pass between the house and the
army lines. There was danger in Andros
course, for he had fairly taken it on himself
to guard the farm from rascally camp prowl
ers, and also taken riska on the exposure of
army secrets by allowing intercourse of citi
sena with soldiers. But he believed that the
woman was true and that harsh rules might
be evaded in rare cases.
Some time after the camps had become
quiet, the negro and the boy came across lota
beyond the road, and halted at the gate for a
sign to enter. Andros was hailed and he
opened the gate, and the old man passed on
aa silent as a funeral mourner. ' A cunning
negro knows how to be mum when some
thing dear to him Is afoot. Before midnight
the sergeant, armed, and a stranger in uni
form, but without a gun, stood at the door of
Ellwood house. The stranger tapped softly
and when the door opened be stepped in, guid
ing the other by a touch on the arm. There
was a second door leading to an inner room,
u.i from there an elderly laity came out to
meet the callers. Miss Ellwood brought the
raoger forward and be was greeted with
affection and a caress. The young woman
took bis hand, their eyes met, and Andros
aid to himself: 'They are lovers."
l-v s s s s
MISS ELLWOOD DREW A CHAIR IN FRONT.
The sergeant was now presented by the other
ildier as "a friend," and then Miss Ellwood
cropped a low bow and said, laughing: "Now
1; is my turn; my mother and my cousin Ed
vwd." The same spell, the frankness and the un
csual geniality of these Virginia people, told
on the sergeant again and reassured hiin. "Bd
vard" bore himself with reserve, minglod
vita tenderness. The children who had been
t y the roadside that day came up and greet
ei the new comer shyly and somewhat cold
I7, calling him "Uncle." The mystery in
t lese strange relationships would have put
ted Andros not a little had he tried to un
rivel it Excusing himself, he said to his
ompanlon, "111 take post outside until you
are ready." The visit lasted an hour or more.
TTnen Miss Ellwood came to the door with
hir visitor Andros said: "I'll keep my pledge
a far as I can. Our army is moving it
lines back and this house will be outside of
the pickets. How far outside I do not know.
A Ay be the enemy will hold this ground and
tlien my power will end." "Edward" was
silent Miss Ellwood said promptly, and
v. 1th spirit, "I can answer that the southern
.Idlers will not come nearer than at present
aid we shall be outeide the lines, unless your
a-my circles us in."
Before they reached Andros' guard post,
n w the outer Union picket, "Edward" said to
ti e other: "Comrade, our trade is soldiering,
and we have no business with feelings that
clash with duty. But there is a secret here
we must beg of you to respect and I pledge
n: y faith you shall not be harmed by what
With a tryst for the next night they sep
al -a ted.
The armies settled in winter quarters, the
E J wood place between the camps and in
d ;ht of both. Andros had periodical tours
of duty on the outposts, and young Seyton
for such be was in reality found a ready
ally to pass him through the pickets by night
aid to guard him on his risky errand.
Whether that errand was one of love only
or with some deeper dramatic interest, the
ol liging ally could not guess. He shared in
mwyof the comforts of the family circle,
ai d a still stronger charm for a soldier exiled
trim all social pleasures was the meetings
w th the genial southron who did the honors
Miss Ellwood and Seyton both assumed,
oc twardly, that the latter held the relation
of suitor, but at times the Interest of the lady
in the chivalrous sergeant led him to hoe
that he, too, had favor in her eyes. How
ev ar, accident had brought him on the scene as
th friend of a comrade who had prior claims,
and he was content with the part he had
tAcen. At such times the next best thing to
being the hero of a romance is to stand by
soine good fellow who is the hero. The mys
teiy In it all, too, piqued the sergeant's fan
cy; the half shut house; the long confer
en xs between the old lady and the Pennsyl
vania lover or cousin, or whatever he was
in the inner room, while Miss Ellwood kept
aw ay dullness by sprightly talk in the recep
tion room. Occasionally Andros would think
tout affection was ripening in spite of all,
but at the hour of parting Seyton 's hand was
pr8ed last and held longest, and glances of
intense though rather sad expressiveness
patsed between the supposed sweethearts.
At length there came a break in these
vis ts. "Edward" was fnrlougbed from his
cotipany and went north. On his return
souie weeks later the spell that bad saddened
turn before had vanished. He spoke no long
er of mystery, and was eveu careless about
privacy when be resumed the visits beyond
the outposts, though for form's sake things
we it on in secret Miss Ellwood was also
changed. Her manner toward both soldier
cor irades was most cordial and at times she
wa quite gay. Andros was charmed and
more than ever inclined to flatter "Edward"
on his success in wooing outside the lines.
I Ate one night Andros, who was in charge
of n picket guard, was ordered to extend his
pickets before daylight to a bluff some rods
beyond the house. After it was done and
day was dawning he returned to the house
nov in the lines, to tell the occupants of the
change in orders. The faithful Patrick
Hetiry had been doing night sentinel duty,
too, and he was abroad and hailed the ser
gea it at the farm yard gate.
" tfawnin, sah I" be said, saluting.
"'3ood morning," said the other, quickly,.
"I Irish to see Miss Ellwood, or"
"'Scuse me, sah, dey's all done gone I"
"I Jwy single one, suah P
"Why how comes tbatP said the other,
";3 dunno, sah, 'ceptin' de Lawd done tuk
It was now broad day and a turn of the
eyef showed the puzzled soldier that the Con
federate camps that had stood out boldly in
sight across the fields were gone too. The
negro's eyes followed the sergeant's.
".In I some other people are away, I see."
Andros colored with anger. Turning upon
the old negro he muttered . bitterly, "I sup
pose the Lord took them, too, ehP and strode
on t) the lines. As soon as he was relieved
from picket watch, Andros hastened to the
camp of the Pennsylvania in no happy
trail te of mind. Seyton greeted him cordially
and met him by saying at once, "I have an ex
planation to make." -
"Weill I think so. How"
"I ase you are excited and 1 suppose some
strange thing has happened. ' I knew it was
to ootne, but it is all right, as I told you it
would be. There has been no treachery and
bo harm done." . .
"Put what are you to those persons P
"I.rother and sonl"
"Scoundrel I I ought to run you through 1
At any rate 111 have you arrested as a spy."
"I irst hear my story. : I was born in that
bonsi, a slave holder' sen. My brother,
Henry Seyton, was a wild fellow, but gener
ous, noble and true. Father died and Henry
beca ne hail fellow with the popular set of
the county, greatly to the regret of my mo
ther. My stepfather, CoL Ellwood, who was
also :'oster nncle, was a genuine southerner,
conavrvative and set in purpose. I went
north to school, and in 1861, on reaching ago,
I sen t a writ of manumission to the slaves I
bad inherited, and all but the old family
hand left the place. I did not write to the
(oiks after the war began, except to say that
I hac enlisted for the Union and to warn
them not to know me in case fortune took me
to th e parts, aa something might arise to
quest ion the loyalty of one born a Virginian.
From Confederate prisoners I met I learned
that CoL Ellwood hod fallen in the war and
Henry was captain in the First Virginia, a
(regis lent raised in our county and filled with
liis toon companions. This is all I heard
l in til the army came here, as yoa know.
Wne 1 1 neared the place marching that first
day, my heart was full and it was a much as
1 000 Id do to keep from rushing out to greet
Eva nt the roadside for my sister was my
fATO) tto pet in the old days.
V nen I went with yoa that night, as soon
as ton greetings were over, J learned that A
third principal was in the house Capt Ser
toli, '1rst Virginia living In hiding under
barrf i doors. He was a fugitive from death
sentence by laws of war for a crime against
my own government"
"And you dared involve meP
"Waltl I beg. My brother would never
shirk an honest doom. He was innocent and
I have proved it".
"Bnt where is he now, and they, the fam
ily P At the last word Andros softened. He
could not think harshly of Eva, audit flashed
upon him that for all love goes where tis sent,
and her feelings may have been for him what
sometimes they seemed to be, tender as well
as friendly. "Mother and Eva and all are
away to the north, and my brother has re
joined his army, under Lee, spared from the
fate that hung over him.
"It was this: You remember how, last
spring, a party of Confederates dashed into our
camps near Alexandria at night and seized
some officers. Afterward our men overtook
the assailants, finding two of their captured
comrades dead and three missing, supposed to
have been foully murdered. My brother led
that night attack, a fair act Of war, and he
was put in a Union prison as hostage for the
return of the missing men, and was charged
with the murder of alL"
Andros was in a shiver, thinking that he
was surely implicated in a most detestable
crime. Seyton continued:
"But my brother, on his part, had simply
taken his prisoners unharmed toward his own
lines a long ride off andon the way had
been overpowered by a band of partisan
rangers, notorious outlaws from the moun
tains. These men, always scenting plunder
and living by robbery and reprisal, insisted
upon stripping the helpless prisoners and
holding them as hostages ' to buy the release
of some of their own crew who were lying in
Union prisons for crimes. My brother and
his followers resisted this outrage in vain. In
the melee two Union prisoners had been killed
and the others taken away to the haunts of
the rangers, my brother and some others be
ing finally overhauled by Union troops in
pursuit War is stern. He was sentenced tc
death, and the verdict was sanctioned by hit
own government, which repudiated the mur
der of captives in war. "It is not admissible
in civilized warfare to take life with uo other
object than the destruction of life." Decision
of O. W. Randolph, Confederate secretary of
"All bis proof was in the bands of his ene
mies, the outlaws, and they were in disgrace
with both governments, and to screen their
own crimes would, if appealed to, swear
away an honest soldier's life. By a desperate
flight he escaped, swam over the broad Poto
mac, and was intending to reach the moun
tains in disguise and somehow produce the
living witnesses of his innocence, i 'a reached
home anJ was hemmed in just as our army
and his own came V the neighborhood. If
seized by us be wsald bang; if by his own
people he would bt returned to a Federal
prison, because, on his escape, the son of a
Confederate leader bad been sentenced as a
bostao to die in bis stead on the appointed
day. The only hope was in a friend who, hav
ing aid from our government, would be pro
tected in a visit to the mountains. Once
tbei-e, by force or parley he might get the
r lssing men. This 1 did while on my fur
loiiKh. That leave of absence, comrado, was
granted 'because of long and faithful ser
vices.' Thus armed I went to Washington,
secured aid, entered the Blue Ridge fast
nosKes and released the men, who confirmed

fiht against the outlaws, and my brother
had fought to save his prisoners. Proofs were
sent to the enemy's camp, and on my last visit
home 1 banded my brother his pardon and
papers of honorable exchange, which made
him free and uouest."
"1 see how it all could be," said Andros,
thoughtfully. "But why deceive me and put
me in such riskP
"Would you have trusted me had you
known how I was rotated oi.tsida the linesP
"No, I would not.'"
"Then all would have tjeen lost. The day of
execution was near. A reprieve had R Mired
the life of the innocent hostage standing for
the principal, and had he been found by
either army he would have found no mercy."
Tho story ended, Seyton smiled and said,
"But, comrado and friend, I have here a word
from one who can add to the thanks 1 avve
With this be gave a note to Andros, who
opened and read: "Miss Eva Ellwood begs
that Sergt Andros will give her an oppor
tunity to apologize in person for the breach
of faith practiced outside the lines. Her
home in future will lie her brother's, at
The old negro, Patrick Henry, followed the
Union camps to be near his "uwisttir," as be
persisted in calling Edward Seyton pro
moted captain in his own regiment At the
end of the war the comrades, Seyton and
Andros, went home together, and the romance
of the outposts ended in the marriuge of the
sergeant now captain with Eva KUwood.
Capt Henry Seyton, the Virginian, luf t the
disbanded Confederate army broken down in
health and found an asylum with his kinsmen
at tho north. Now both he and his brother
lie near each other in death, and Decoration
day brings a guerdon of flowers from tender
hands to mark their graves. But one grave
only, that of faithful Edward Seyton, is
hallowed with the true memorial emblem,
the silken Itanner of our Union. That is
placed there by his friend and Grand Army
comrade, Capt Everett Andros.
