CHAPTIR XIII.
DELEAGUERED.
STRANGE that men will never
learn the terrible advantage of
a force posted on an Impreg
nable position, protected by
breastworks and able to pour shot
down a steep hill at an enemy. Two
men, two girls and a boy had defeated
the guerrillas and sent them back to
their camp. I did not fear another at
tack. What I dreaded was starvation.
Indeed, I could see plainly that our ene
mies were preparing to carry out the
starvation plan. Several of them went
in different directions, doubtless for
food. One of them passed quite within
range.
"I'm goin to plunk that one," said
Buck.
I caught his arm, and gave him a re
proof which for a while at least caused
him to remember that I was in com
mand.
"I wish they'd attack us again," said
the irrepressible boy. "I could 'a' hit
that doggone 'butternut' if somep'n
hadn't joggled my arm."
There had been nothing to joggle the
boy's arm, but I thought it best to let
him keep up his pride-it would make
him more serviceable-so I said noth
ing.
"I aimed right at the middle of his
breast," continued Buck, "but Just then
he Jumped over a stone, an I missed
him."
"I thought some one joggled your
arm?"
"Some one did. Ginger, yo' consarn
ed old nigger, what d' yo' go joggle mue
fo' just as I was goin to plunk lim?"
"I didn't joggle yo', Mars' Buca."
"Was it you, Hel'n?"
"No."
"Somebody did, or I'd 'a' hit him,
shol"
If ever a party needed breakfast, it
was ours. Helen unrolled the little
parcel of provisions. I directed her to
serve a half ration, or, rather, half of
what there was an( save the rest. She
did so, handing me my portion, which
I declined, but she argued that it was
important for all that I shoul( keep up
my strength and finally prevalled on
me to eat my share. Jaqueline and
Buck ate theirs ravenously. Each of us
went to where the wvater was drip
ping from the cleft and caught the
drops In our mouths. Buck, when he
had finished his breakfast, like Oliver
Twist, asked for more. It made my
heart ache to refuse him, but there was
no alternative.
One danger was dwarfed by the
greater perils that surroundled us, yet it
w~as no less impliortant. My wound was
liable to put mec hors (Ie combat at any
moment. Fortunately until my dash
from the guerrilla camplj I had not been
subject to any physieal strain, and by
that time it had healed suflicatly to
prevent its Opening. At any rate, it
gave me no trouble. Thie first tihing
Helen asked after a lull in the fighting
was about this wvound. She insisted
on dressing it for me, and I permnittedl
her to do so. She wound around it a
fresh bandage torn from may shirt
sleeve and was pinnuig it when, look
ing up at me, she said:
"You're not the fir-st one of our men
I've assisted with bandages."
Her remark cut mle like a knife. It
was plain that she was making this
effort, incurring this danger, believing
me to be a Confeder-ate.
"I can't understand all these troubles
that surroundI you," she wvent on.
"Why not explain ?"
"You know I'm charged with being
in league with the Yankees."
"Yes, but your accusers are robbers
and murderers. If I thought that"
She broke off with a frown and turned
away.
"The guerrillas built a fire and, after
cooking and eating breakfast, loitered
about, some chatting, some playing
cards, wile others devoted themsel ves
to their wounded companions, making
them as comfortable as possible on
beds of boughs coveredI with blankets.
I took advantage of their inaction to
learn how Buck had succeeded ho de
livering his message to the scost he
was to meet at IHuntsville, As I ,touid
not question him befor-e the others
without giving up my secret, I .lrew
him into the cleft behind us.
"Buck, did you find the man 5 sent
you to meet at Huntsville?"
"Reckon I did."
"Tell me about it."
"All right. As soon as I gg Into
town I went right to the squar am stop
ped in front o' the hotel. I hitched my
von" a post an went inside. A man
In we office saId, 'Sonny, what d' ye' C
want?' an I Bald, 'I'm gemn up om the r
gallery,' an he said, 'What to'? an I C
said, *Fo' to see the town.' Th'en I
went up stairs an waited till I heard
the clock strikin an counted thi'teen."
"Not 13, Buck. Clocks don't Er-ike
18."
"Well, don't ye' see, that clok at
Huntsville is a different kin4, It
struck either thi'teen or fo'teem, I
couldn't tell which." I
"Never mind tihe clock. You'te in- e
renting all this. Go on."
"Well, just as the clock struck a mnnt
he came out on to the gallery, He had C
the doggonest eyes i ever saw-just t]
like the welf's In 'Red Riding Hood.' 0
At first he didn't take any notico 0' s
me, lookin 'a if lhe was bothered 'cause c
I was thar an lhe expected somebody. P;
Then he watched me with those sharpu
eyes o' his'n, an at last he said kind o' ft
gruff, "Tis a fine day, boy,' an I said, &
said I-what was it 1 was to say?"
