In August, 1878, Henry Dillard, a
young man about twenty years of ago,
was returning from Fort Griffin to his
home on the Brazos. lie had been to
the Fort to sell a load of produce on
the day before. Ile was driving a pair
of mules, and in the wagon with hin
was his little brother Willie, ahout thir
teen years old. Having attended a ball
on the night previous, Dillard felt
drowsy. When about fifteen miles
from the Fort, as he was dozing on the
wagon-seat, little dreaming of the
drama in which he was to play a prom
Inent part, he wassuddenly aroused by
the sound of laughter and the tramp
ling of horses, Ie had driven al
most into the midst of the party of
thirty Indians, who were moving to
wards ilim. Instantly comprehending
the situation, he reached down and
picked up his gun. The foremost In
dian, who was iearly abreast of him,
now fired at Dillard, the ball cutting
away his temporal lock and anoi b:u, -
Ing the scalp. Dillard fired a shot or
two, but found that the shields of the
Indians turned the bullets. le then
shot one Indian below the shield, break
Ing his thigh and the backbone of his
horse. Calling upon Willie to follow
him, he then sprang from the wagon
and began to move toward a ravine
about a quarterof a mile to the right.
I1s arms were a Spencer rifle and six
shooter. Willie also had t six-shooter.
The Indiana immediately surrou nded
themi, galloping in a circle, keeping up
a constant yelling and tiring. They
were armed with Spencer rifles and
bullet-proof shleds. Sometimes run
ning, sometimes walking, sometimes at,
bay, the two boys a1)proached the ra
vine. At the first fire Willie's six
shooter was rendered useless by the
blowing out of a portion of the cylin
(er, lenceforward his only service
was to carry the cartridges for his
brother. At one time Ihenry fell on
his face. An Indian dashied up to
take hils seal), but was shot by Dillard
before Ie rose from the ground. At
another time he heard Willie cry, "Ien
ry I look here." The boy was running
around a mosquito bush, followed by
an Indian, who was trying to grasp
hii by the clothcs. Ifenry ran up and
shot the ludian,and the two boys con
tinned the retreat. On they struuggled,
the Indians charging back and forth,
lreling, yelling and firing, attempt
Ing to ride theim dlown or dash them to
the earth with the barrels ot their car
lnes. Oi they pushed, seizing every
"colgn' of advantage, loading, firing,
dodging, turning, but ever advancing
toward the ravine, where the inttinct
of the young braves pointed them to
shelter. The heat was terrible; their
tongues were swollen and theskin sl1p
ped from the soles of their feet. But
on they pressed-to pause was to die.
The efforts of the savages, who were
now maddened with rage and revenge,
were redoubledi as the boys neared the
ravine. But the young heroes strug
gled on with undaunted resolution
and at length reneied It and sprang
into the brush with which It, was fring
ed. But one of tie Indians had arriv
ed before them nd d11(ismiounted from
his horse. IDillard discoverinmg himal,
attempted to shoot, but 1his plece was
nowv empty. The Indian seeing this
mounted his horse and diashedi up to
him, carbine in hand,. and was shot by
Uiliard through the body with his pis
tol, ie turned andi rode awauy to the
miain body. The boys now retired
into the depths of the ravine and the
savages retreated, carrying away theie
dead and wounded, but leaving live
horses on the bloody field, besides blan
kets and blouses perforated with bullet
holes and somne clothing anmd otherarti
cles which they had taken from the
whites on this foray. Th'le Indians
having taken Dillard's mules lhe made
lisa way on foot to a ranch some miles
away and returnedl to Fort Griffin. Oni
* hearing hisa report, Goeneral Buell im
mediately sent ani oflcer with a sil
clent iiumberof men to pursue the In
dians. These had divided, the main
body taking to the right, andi a smaller
* party, with the dead and wounded, a
left hand trail. In two or thiree (days,
about the head of the Wichita, thiey
came upon a camp wvhich had been~ ie
cently deserted by the Idlins Three
beds, made of grass and deeply bleod..
stained, were found in this camp. No
ticing some buzzards circling aroumti a
mountain near by, some of tile party
ascended it and found where the In
dians had partially bur'ied thiree bodies
of those who had doubtless died( in tile
camp. They also found here a memor
andum book of DillardI's whieh lie had
lost in the a fight few cdays before. 1Dil

Boys who Learned to Sew.
When the late Admiral - was a
young nidshipman lie was sent on a voyage
around the world in one of Kiug Gcorge
IlI.'s ships. He was three years away,
and as lie grew very fast he found himself

sister of Admiral Lord -- , had taught
her little boy to sow; so he got soie can

Rather mnore than thirty years ago a lady
went to call on another one rainy afternoon ;

were too proud to sow ?" One of these

and make and mend their own clothes.
One of the boys is now an old general, but
he sdws on his buttons to this very day;

"But I don't know you," said Boniface.
