a ijuole call.
THE night passed without an at
tack. I prepared a flro as bo
fore, but It was not needed.
Day dawned, and we could
Bee that the guerrillas had made them
selves more comfortable, having con
structed a rude hut of boughs for shel
ter, showing conclusively thnt they In
tended to wait patiently for the starv
ing process to do Its work.
Dining the dny the remnant of the
provisions Jack had purloined was con
sumed and the command was supper- |
Iobs. Agnin we entered upon a long,
weary night All except myself were I
so worn that they evinced little care
for watching. They were getting be
numbed, a condition which comes at
last over one hunted for his life. As
ror me. my position was harrowing.
My devoted friends who bad made tho
attempt to rescue me were starving,
and, to crown all, Helen Stallforth,
who had Instigated the attempt,
had planned It and had led the others
Into It, was deceived ns to my
true character. I brooded over the
situation till I was well nigh Insane.
Then 1 made a resolve?a resolve that
might free the others, but would end
in my death. I would go down to the
guerrillas and give myself up. It was
possible that my case having been dis
posed of. Captain Ulngold nnd his ad
herents would be able to protect the
girls, nnd. Buck and Ginger being of
no moment to the band, nil might go In
Hut there was nn obstacle In the way
that 1 knew would not bo easily over
come?the opposition of all my friends.
It was hard for me to go down to my
death. How could 1 bring myself to
do so with all these beloved ones en
deavoring to prevent mel Thero was
one way by which 1 might render them
less averse to tho plan. Hy proclaim
ing the military mission which had
tnketi mo to Alabama I might render
myself an object of hatred and con
tempt' Despite the pain this confes
sion would cost me, I resolved to
At the moment I took ray resolution
I looked up at Helen, who was always
my first object of thought before any
Important move. She was leaning over
the battlement looking down upon tho
guerrillas. In her face was a strength,
nn honesty such ns I had uever seen
before on thnt of nny woman. My re
solve dwindled before that heroic coun
tenance. I could not turn her subllmu
fuith In me to detestation.
However, my purpose to end the
Struggle by my own surrender was un
changed. Rising, I called out In a
lone which at once attracted attention
nnd denoted that I had something of
Importance to say.
All looked at mo Inquiringly.
'?I am going down there to give my
self up. Then you can go ffpe."
Helen's gaze bespoke not only her
astonishment, but dismay.
"What yo' goiug to do that fo'?" ask
ed .lack quickly.
"Because I owo It to you all to do
"I'm goln with yo'," said Buck.
"Yon will do no such thing. You
must stand by your sister nnd cousin."
"What do yo* want to lenve us in the
lurch fo'V" Bald Jack Impatiently.
This Imputed motive brought a
fresh addition to my distress. Even
with a perfect understanding between
me and the others my burden was hard
enough to bear. Jack's taunt well nigh
turned the scale. Bending to the cliff,
1 buried my face in my hands. A soft
hand was laid on mine. Helen was en
deavoring to uncover my face. I turn
ed and met her gaze?strong, tender,
"Your life Is not yours to surrender.
You must wait till It la forced from
"I would be unworthy of your sub
lime devotion should I accept any fur
ther sacrllice, especially since it can be
of no avail."
"By giving up now you would turn
all our efforts to nothing. We shall
have made a failure that will remain
an eternal burden."
"It will be light compnred with my
fielf condemnation when 1 see you die
By this time Jack had seized my oth
er hand with both of her?,
"Yo' can't go. Yo' mustn't think of
It. What would we do wltliout yo'?"
"Cease trying to mako a coward of
me," 1 cried, "or I shall go madl"
I sprang toward the rampart.
"Stop!" cried Helen Imperatively. "I
own your life to dispose of ns I will?I
and Jack. Bad It not been for me you
would havo hied to death when yoo
received your wound. Had It not been
for Jack you would havo already been
murdered by tho guerrillas,"
"Yes, and I am not so base as to pull
my benefactors down wltli ,*ue. Stand
Jack spoke tho word la her quick
way, poising her head on one sldo to
listen. She had heard a low whistle.
In another moment It waa repeated,
Bcemlng to como from below, whero we
hnd built our bonfire. A figure Was ad1
vanclng through the gloom, holding
aloft a white handkerchief. I jumped
from the rampart nnd ran down to
meet this "Hag," which I soon saw was
borne by Captain IMngold. Iffe
"What do you want?" mk
"Don't let your women como Into our
camp again. Jnycox Is back, and he

He was gono before the last word
was spoken. I returned to the fortress.
"What Is It?" cried Jack expectantly.
"Ho has lost tho power to protect
you. He advises me to stay with you
to tho last."
" Ees," I replied, with a Blgh.
"Tl : nk OodJ" exclaimed Helen.

chocks were sunken; our eyes, deep In
their sockets, were turned toward the
red orb of day, which to our fevered
Imaginations seemed to be advancing
to strike the final blow.
A great change had come over us
during the night. Jack alternated be
tween bursts of passlou and a devil
may care spirit, sprinkled with humor
ous sallies between tears and smiles,
which served tc lighten momentarily
tho gloom for the others, but only ren
dered me more wretched; Buck craved
food more than all the rest and after a
few valu efforts to nppear unconcerned
took on a ghastly look that cut me to
tho heart; Ginger spent a grent deal of
his time In prayer; Helen seemed calm,
yet I noticed a strango look In her eye.

She turned away, and I saw that she
was weeping. I put my arm about her
and drew her head down on my breast.
There sho wept long and silently.

"I hear horses' hoofs," said Buck.
"Oh, no, you don't, Buck," I said, lay
ing my hand on bis head.
"I tell yo' I do."
"Listen," said Helen.
?We all listened, but so far as I was
concerned there was no unusual sound.
"I hear them, too," said Jack.
It was singular that these two should
agree. I looked anxiously at Helen.
My hearing was not especially acute.
If Helen had heard, I might have
thought there was something to hear.
She listened a long while, but no sound
came to her.
"It's gone," said Buck.
"So It Is," said Jack. "I heard It; I
know I did."
I turned away. It was plain to me
that they had been tortured by another
hallucination. Neither Buck nor Jnck
beard anything more, and the Incident
was soon forgotten, at least by FTolon
and. by me, who bad heard nothing.
We all relapstnl Into that dreadful wait

fear of death would bo overcome by

She sat down on the bare rock, I be
side her. We both looked out upon the
setting sun, tinting the mountains with
ominous blood stains, like thoso I had
seen on tho evening I reached the guer
rilla band. Jnck was sitting holding i
her knees, rocking back and forth;
Buck was lying on his buck with bis
eyes shut; Ginger had finished a pray
er and was rising from hla knees. Sud
denly tho whole command.started up as.
If touched by a current of vitality.
Thero rang out on tho still mountain
air the clear tones of a bugle.
.-. There was no hallucination about this
sound. Each note cut tho nlr with
sclmlterllke sharpness. To our ears,
whetted as they wero for some tidings',
of relief, It was like trumpet tones
from heaven. It echoed and re-echoed
through the mountains, each echo faint
er than the last, dying softly In the for
Shading my eyes with my hand,,
peering down toward tho road, I saw'
through a small opening in the trees
flies of cavalry passing by fours. They,
were too far for me to distinguish1
whether they wore tho bine or tho
gray, but It made no difference, either
sldo would be welcome. Seizing a car
bine, I pointed It at the sky and fired.
The buglo and my shot produced a
magical effect on tho guerrillas. Wltb
waltlnsr to gather anything but
tnetr arms, every man of them darted
away Into tho woods. They knew well
what would be their fate could we open
communication witb me cavalry.
"Not a moment Is to be lost," I cried
to my command. "That bugle call was
an order to halt Wo must catch the
soldiers beforo they start again." J
Gathering the guns and putting half'
a dozon cartridges that remained in
my pocket, we all left the fort that had
served us so well and startest down the
docllvlty. Without the Inspiration of
those bugle notes we could scarcely
havo crawled away. Now we not only
walked, but walked rapidly. Once past

so great was my anxiety to get the
others forward that I was constantly
getting ahead of them. I saw that
Buck was lagging, and I started back
to help him when Helen stooped, took
him up In her arms and threw him over
her shoulder. He kicked so vigorously
at this Indignity that Helen put him
down, and, his fury lending him
strength, ho at once took tho lend be
side me. Wo hurried on, now and
again looking back to mnko sure that
we wero not followed, climbing over
rocks, through ravines, around project
ing points, I directing the course to
ward the spot where I had seen the
passing troopers. Wo had traversed

her Ginger had picked her up and,
gathering her limp body In his arms,
her head resting on his shoulder, car
ried her on. The burden, so precious to
the faithful old slave, seemed to give
him fresh courage, and ho pushed on,
though with tottering steps.
"I'll rellove you presently, Ginger,"
I said. "Hold out as long as you can."
We came to a depression, In tho cen
ter of which ran a mountain stream. Tho
descent and tho ascent on the opposite
sldo were both rocky and covered with
a thick growth of low timber and dif
ficult to pass. I glanced hastily to the
right and to the left, but, seeing no bet
ter passage, plunged down tho decliv
ity. Buck was now sticking to mo like
h leech, Helen was just behind, while
p hundred yards bock Ginger stagger
ed along with Jack. I waited a mo
ment for him to come up and then led
tho way into the ravlno, Intending to
take his burden from him when we
had passed the stream. Once nt the
creek, wo waded across. In the mid
dle Ginger stumbled and dumped bis
burden into the water.
The effect on Jack was marvelous.
The cold water brought a reaction
which. If not pleasing, was at least
beneficial. She flew Into a towering
passion at Ginger for dropping her and
when I attempted to take her up, gave
mo a box on tho cur that made it tin
gle. Dripping, she dashed up tho rlso
in tho ground, storming ns she went,
land gained the summit before the rest.
Pushing through a level wooded
space, wo soon camo to the road. A
bugle ahead sounded the order to trot.
Scarcely had Its echoes died away
when from tho direction of the outlaws'
desortcd camp came a shrill wl^plle.
"The guerrillas!" I cried. "U is now
a race between life and death."
IWAS at a loss to know what had
brought a body of cavalry up Into
the Cumberland mountains. 1
learned afterward that they bad
come from Shelbyvllle and were on
their way to attack Bridgeport, where
tho Memphis and Charleston railroad
crosses the Tennessoe, with a view to
burning tho bridge. At Tracy City
they had heard of a Confederate force
moving on their flank to cut them off
and retraced their stepB. Buck and
Jaquellne liad really henrd them going
southward early In tho afternoon. The

In coming up with them, in which

Besides, the guerras would expect us
to follow that course. If wo pushed
south, we uiUBt abandon ull hope of
fulling !n with the troopers, but would
doubtless mislead the guerrillas and

"It's tho way to go."

She turned and started northward.
I seized her and, taking her In my
arms, carried her uloug with tho rest,
sho raining a shower of blows from
her llttlo fist upon my head. We
pressed on without a word, till Jack,
either tired of the situation or becom
ing sensible of tho absurdity of her
action, promised that if I would put
her down she would go with us peace
ably. I set her on tho ground In a
very dlsgruutled condition.
"I wish Captain ltlugold wero here,"
she muttered angrily. "He'd make you
pay fo' that."
Tho road was so winding that I did
not fear any one behind could see us |
from a distance, while, should wo leave
it, cur progress would t>o very slow.
I chose to take the risk of being seen
and put as great a distance as possible
between us and tho outlaws while
they supposed they were on our track
In the direction of tho cavalry, for I
felt sure they would expect us to tako
that course. Wc had not gone far be
fore we met a lean countryman on
horseback. In a few words I told him
of our situation and begged him if ho
met the guerrillas to mislead Uiem.
When he lew rued of our starving con
dition, he pulled a small black bottle
containing whisky out of his saddlo
bog. I forced every member of the
party to drink and. tossing the empty
bottle to the countryman, Iturried on.
I knew thnt the stimulant would aval)
us but a little while, then would only
tnnko matters worse. Helen walked
on, showing uo effect whatever from
tho potatlou. Jack danced nlong as If
She were at n picnic party, while Buck
suddenly became brave as a lion.
"Don't yo' think, Mr. Hrandystonc,"
ho said, with difficulty getting breath
enough to articulate while walking so
fast, "we'd better stop an tight 'em 7"
"I think you'd better stop talking
and savo your breath for walking."
"Reckon wo better stop," said Gin

Still there was no sound In our rear.
Helen asked If I did not think thai
keeping tho road was pretty risky. I
told her that I would soon glvo the
word to take to the woods. Coming to
a point where thero was a turn, leov
Ing a straight piece of road back of us,
I told the rest to go on while I waited
and watched. I stood casting glances
back till my army reached another
turn in advance, then, pressing for
ward, caught up with them. In this
way I kept them In tho road and main
tained a rear watch at the same time
for nearly half an hour. Then the
Itrcngth of the party, which bad thus
far been supplied by excitement, sud
denly began to droop, and I, feeling
that I had used all tho energy there
was In them, led tho way off tho road
Into the heart of tho forest. We had
scarcely got Into the woods when we
heard a clattering of hoofs on the road.
Whether they wero made by tho guer
rillas' horses or not I did not know, but
I felt sure they were. We waited till
they were out of hearing, then every
ono sank down on the ground.
"Now, Ginger," I said, "It Is a good
time to give thanks."
Getting on his knees, Ginger poured
out the thanks of tho party in words
that came as smoothly nnd plentifully
as the waters of a running stream. I,
being of thnt persuasion which has for
Its fnotto, "Trust In God, but keep
your powder dry," and. seeing that Gin
ger was disposed to prolong his thanks
giving Indefinitely, got up and started
to hud a convenient place to hide. I
soon struck a little pocket formed by
the coming together of several declivi
ties and surrounded by thickets. A lit
tle runnel passed through It, and,
stooping down, 1 quenched a thirst that
was burning me. Returning to the
party, I led them to tho retreat 1 had
found for them, then left them to go In
search of provisions.
W Wflfl "now qulto dark. I walked
half a mile, when 1 saw tho lights of
Trecy City. Going to the town nnd
selecting a house standing apart from

knocked at the door. It was opened
by a girl, tho only occupant of the
place, a wild eyed creature In dingy
calico, unshod, her squnro cut locks
tucked behind her ears. Sho nppenred
to be In a chronic stato of fright and
evidently thought mo ono of those men
who wero going about taking advan

when I paid her for them sho was
struck dumb with amazement. I re

turned to cnmp with provisions, mat ?>
cs, a skillet and a coffeepot.
Ginger and Duck had gathered
little wood for the fire. At the Inner
extremity of the pocket we occupied
was a low ledge of overhanging rock.
It projected but a few feel and was
about the height of little Buck from the
ground. I hesitated for some time
whether It would not be dangerous to
light a Are and tbus guide our enemies
to where we were, but at last conclud
ed to place the wood under the ledge
and cover the front with boughs. Driv
ing three stakes Into the ground, I
placed the wood under them and light
ed It. Then, Oiling my coffeepot with
' water from the stream and putting In
my coffee, a very pleasant odor soot:
greeted our nostrils.
But all were too famished to wait for
a cooked supper. Seizing upon some
corn pone I had brought, tho others de
voured It eagerly, I restraining my ap
petite long enough to put somo bacon
into tho skillet. One articlo of food
after another was devoured as It was
got ready, and our coffee without milk
came In at the end Uko tho last course
at a dinner.
As soon as we had finished our sup
per wo put out tho fire, laid boughs
where It had been and covered them
with dry leaves, making a bed for the
two girls and Buck. Ginger was fo
bivouac wherever he liked while I
posed to watch. Leaving tue omens 10
get to bed, I took a carbine and walked
toward the road.
There wus u iigbt step behind me,
and, turning, I saw Helen coming.
"Go back," I said, "and take your
rest. You need all you can get."
"I wish to take half your watch."
"You shall do no such thing."
"I am strong. The supper has re
"Helen." ! said quietly, at the same
time tuking her band, "I am In com

I led her back to tho camp. As we

walked away to resume my watch.

pression of my love. What could I do? .
Turning ngnln, I passed in among the '
All through that long night I walked
with a soft trend, hearkening to the
slightest sound, straining my enrs
whenever a breeze rustled the branches
of the trees or starting when I heard
some fur coated creature prowling In
search of food. Yet during my watch
one picture was ever present before
me. All night I saw Helen standing In
tho moonlight, all night 1 brooded over
the barrier that separated us. At dawn
I felt that 1 must get some rest or I
would not be able to lead the party
farther. Going to the little camp and
awakening Ginger, 1 led blm out to
where 1 had been watching and told
him to keep moving back and forth a
short distance from the road and In
case of danger raise the ularin. Then,
returning to camp, I threw myself ou
