IT was plain to me that I was In
the hands of that terrible war
time scourge of the south, the
guerrilla. This baud bad beeu
?ade op In east Tennessee and had
moved out of their original stamping
ground to get away from their old
home* and find a better field for pil
lage. From the Cumberland plateau
they could swoop down toward Nash
?llle, Murfreesboro, McMlnuvllle, Bhel
byvllle, Fayette or Huntsvllle and,
If chased, could easily take to the
mountains, where It was difficult to fol

Jaycox and Pete Llalllday had got
wind of my whereabouts and, with
several of the gang. Including the man
1 had shot, bad gone down to look after
me. Tho country In and about Hunts
tIHo was too civilised for open assas
sination, and Jaycox, after the failure
of the attempt on my life, had pro
cured my arrest as a spy. Then fol
lowed the plan to kidnap me and force
me Into a payment of money before the
We bivouacked where wo had met
the band on the plateau, under the
trees that waved above us, their
spreutlng leaves lighted up by our
canipfire. I lay awake the greater part
of the night, watching for an oppor
tunity to escape, but one sentry after
another was placed over me, and morn
ing came without my having made the
At sunrise we moved northward, as
on the day before, my captors still
keeping a strict watch over me. Dur
tug the day Jaycox pushed on In ad
vance. Why I did not know, but sur
mised that his going had something to
do with the plan to plunder me.
The mountains seemed deserted.
Nut a human being did we see save
two women and a negro, all on horse
back, traveling In the same direction
as ourselves. I caught several glimpses
of them, though always at a distance,
and wondered how It was that "poor
white trash," to which class they ap
peared to belong, could afford the at
tendance of n slave.
When we halted for the night, which
we did about 0 o'clock In tho afternooa,
the captain came up to me and told
me they were going to take me to a
point near thy old home, Kno.wllle,
where I would be required to sign a
check for a large amount, all they
could squeeze out of me, but If there
wore not sulliclent funds to my credit
In the bank 1 must execute papers that
would enable blm to convert property
Into money. If I would do as be wish
ed, he would set me free. This I knew
to be a lie. Tho gang would Ond a pre
text to murder me whether 1 signed the
document or not.
He left me sitting on the ground,
leaning against a log, contemplating
the horrors of my situation. If I did
Dot pay my ransom, 1 should be mur
dered; If 1 paid it, i should be murder
ed. It was Uobson's choice. 1 made
up my mind thut -1 would attempt to
escape, get shot and thus end a situa
tion that was Inflicting on me a mental
torture far greater than any physical
pain mortal ever endured.
Casting my eyes Inadvertently to
ward the road, I saw two women pass
ing northward and In another moment
recognised them as those 1 had noticed
on the march. To my surprise, one of
them turned and rode toward us. The
other hesitated, started on, turned and
followed her companion. 1 noticed
something familiar about their figures.
The coarse texture of their jackets and
gowns and their unbecoming sunbon
nets were out of keeping with their
graceful carriage. "If these women
knew," 1 thought, "that they were en
terlng a guerrilla camp, they would be
stricken with terror." When tbey
reached a point a dozen yards distant,
they paused, the one In advance call

With one accord the two girls took hold

stood gaping at the unusual sight of
two women who, unasked, were cook
ing a meal for them. Helen occupied
herself over the fire and managed an
Iron skillet, the only cooking utensil

took the tin dishes that composed the
kit and "set the table," an act hitherto
unknown at guerrilla meals. Then,

Jaquellne took off her sunbonnet,
threw it a few feet away and stepped
on to the clearing. There wero mingled
fear and defiance In her face that set
my heart to fluttering. Though I did
not know she was carrying out a pre
concerted plan, somehow It got Into my
head that she was about to dance for
my liberty?In other words, for my life.
The thought maddened me. An Impulse
seized me to throw off the mask and
defy the whole band. Helen, seeing the
desperate resolve expressed In my face,
gave mo a look, partly Imploring, part
ly commanding, that recalled me to a
sense of my helplessness.
JaqueUno began sailing about, keep
ing .time to Ginger's music, moving
hither and thither with uncertain steps,
as a bird will flit back and forth before
darting away In Its flight, or as a musi
cian will sweep hit fingers over a harp
before beginning his melody. Gradual
ly tho music grew quicker, and Jack,
gathering confidence, forgot everything
but the dance.
Since the entry of the two girls Into
the camp I had suffered one terror aft
er another In quick succession, and
now it struck me that In case Jack suc
ceeded In fascinating this lawless group
some of them, fired with a desire of
possession, would break through all re
straint. I had been wonderstruck that
two defenseless girls should dare to

them and that Helen should permit her
to do so. But who shall measure the

ugly faces momentarily softened by
the sight of grace and beauty; the cup

dancer and following tier wherever she
goes; Pete llalllday, standing with
folded arras, lowering from under the
broad brim of his sombrero, grinding4
his quid; Ginger's black face gleaming

his young mlstreBS, Inspiring her with
his own inspired melody; little Buck,

of tho day.
The guerrillas, not one of whom
would hesitate to silt a throat at tho
slightest prospect of gain, were watch
ing the little Soubrette not only with
admiration, but with respect. Once
during her performance one of the men
applauded with a ribald remark. Ho
was standing by the captain, who
stretched his arm, brought It down
with a backward stroke and sent tho
man sprawllug. Jaquelluo saw tho
act and the approving looks of the out
laws, who wero In no mood to bavo
their sport Interrupted. The color left
her cheeks, but she kept right on, and
tho episode passed without further con
At a moment when the attention of
the men had become riveted upon the
dancer Helen, who had been gradually
working her way from the group to
ward me, came and ?at down on the
log behind Ginger, where she was par
tially screened by him. Watching her
opportunity, she deftly took a revolver
I from her pocket and concealed it In
I the folds of her dress. With her eyes
fixed upon the group about Jack, she
waited for a burst of applause, and
when It came, reaching back, she drop
ped the wenpou behind the log at my
feet; then, rising, rejoined the circle. I
pushed the revolver under the log with
the toe of my boot, then kicked dust
and leaves over It This accomplished,
I breathed the most comfortable sigh
of relief I have ever drawn In my life.
The whole situation seemed changed
by that little dust covered combination
of bits of metaL Stooping. 1 slipped It
into the leg of my boot and felt that
half the battle was won.
At that moment the setting sun came
out from behind a cloud and shot

ugly, the good and the bad, the refined
