CHAPTER XXI.
A STEN C11HASE.
STRAIGHT road lay before ui
to Decherd, a few miles dis
tint. The place was of tc
great Importance for the guer
rillas to dare enter, and If we couh
t reach It before they could catch us w4
should be safe.
"Iow much Is your horse worth?"
I asked the blacksmith.
"A matter o' saxty dollars."
"If you kill him by hard driving, I'1
give you a hundred, and if you get ui
to Decherd before the outlaws cai
catch us I'll make It a hundred more."
"Weel, noo, I don't want to be har<
oil a mon flyin for his life and wimne
folk too. I'll do the best I can and as)

With that he belabored the poo

NNe were still a quarter of a mile
from the town, and the guerrillas
would be on us in a jiffy. Calling to
the others to help, I turned the wagon a
across the road and directed all to take ,i
- position behind it. Distributing the tot
guns, we waited the coining of the ad
vance of our enenies. Three men, pret- "0

drew rein and walted for their con- it
rades. Others soon camte up, and I
counted seven men preparing to charge lo
us. I was about to give an order as to
the firing when I heard an exclamation wi
from Ginger: tet
"Bress do Lawdi"
Turning, I saw a troop of cavalry
carrying the stars and stripes riding
leisurely fron the town. I fired a shot
to attract their attention. Suddenly s
they seemled to take it the situation.
I heard the sharp word of command r
and saw them coming at a gallop.

Hlelen's shoulder, hecr eyes closed, her g
face whlite as a cloth, we all about her,
tdreading every moment that the life
blood would run out. Presently she

fainted away.

I, with a soldier's knowledge of the
thirst of a wounded person, dashed
away In a hunt for water. I found a
well in a yard on the outskirts of the

i chain that held a tin cup, brought a
t plentiful supply. Helen was still sup

about nervously, with is hands thrust

"What's the matter?"
Curiously enough, the words were the
same as those I had first hleard her ut

"You're huirt. Jack," said [Helen.
"Ami I going to die?"
"Oh1, no, dlear. I hope not."
"Don't die," said Beaumont In a bro- 4
Ien voice. "Don't leave me. I couldtn't

Sheo looked up into hlis face sadly. "I T

1e Atlanta Constitution say s: T he
mnagement of the Buffalo enterprise
uinted upon at least 10,000,000 paid
missions in order to make ends meet,
t when the gates of the great fair
ie closed for the last time it was
uind that the attendance aggregated
ly 8,200,000 admissions, in cluding
sses.
The total output of the Exposition
is something in the neighborhood of
0,000,000. From the gate receipts
ly $3,500,000 was realized against
expected irevenue of at least $S,
0,000. Of course, something was
lhzed from concessions, but alto
thor the .Expos3ition r'epresents a net
as of nearly $4,000,000. Bad weather
ring thme early spring prevented1 the
epos'tion from being ready on time,
d thi3 handicap kept the crowds
ck at the beginnmng. Then the
igedy resultang in the Pr'esident's
ath considerably reduced the attend
ce at thie close.
Buffalo naturally feels disheartened
er the tinancial failure of her great
:position, but she has the satisfaction
knowmng that her enterprise was an
istic success in the most critical
ise of the term, and that in many
pets it, was even superior to the
orld's Fair at Chicago. Though she
s been put to very great expense she
s greatly stimulatedl American en
prise and the good effects of her
sat iExposition will probably be felt
many years to come.
Your Hair
"Two years ago my hair was
falling out badly. I purchased a -
bottle of Ayer's Hair Vigor, and
soon my hair stopped coming out."
Miss Minnie Hoover, Paris, Ill.
Perhaps your mother
had thin hair, but that is
no reason why you must
go through lire with half
starved hair. If you want
long, thick hair, feed it
with Ayer's H-air Vigor,
and make it rich, dark,
and heavy.
