I mnde straight for tlie
blncksmlth shop and found
a smith at Iiis forge.
"My good man," I said, "I'm fo'Iowcd
.by guerrillas. They'll be In the town
0n a few minutes. Can't you give me
your clothes and let me take your place
at the forge?"
He stood with his hand on the han
dle of the bellows looking at me while
what I said was slowly making Its way
through his skull.
?'Wool, nnn." lie snld at last.
"Scotch?I knew It. I'll be tnken be
fore I can make him understand." Then
to him, "Do you want to save me from
death by guerrillas?"
"Then take oft* that apron and give It
to me at once. Not a moment to lose."
At this Juncture the desperate posi
tion I was In entered his brain, and he
worked quickly enough once ho real
ized what was wn 'ed. I saw a wool
en shirt, well be., med, hnnglng on a
nail and, seizing It, put It on. Then I
took the smith's apron, rolled up my
sleeves, smeared my arms with cinders
and looked Into a bit of broken mirror
resting against the wooden wall to ob
serve the effect. I was disappointed to
see that my face belled my calling.
"Your razor!" 1 exclaimed to the
He went through a door leading from
the shop to his dwelling and returned
with a razor, soap and hot water. In
five minutes I had shorn my beard,
leaving a dark stubble; tben, seizing a
handful of coke, rubbed out every re
fined lineament. Taking another look
at myself, I was pleased to sec that my
own mother would not know me. Seiz
ing the handle of the bellows, I began
to blow vigorously.
"Wcel, wecl." laughed the black
smith, "ye mak' a better lo'kln smith
"Play your own part well," I replied,
"and I have something nice for you at
the end of the performance.*'
It was fully 15 minutes nfter we
reached the hamlet before there were
any signs of the guerrillas, and then
three or four rode Into the town and
asked for our party. Had they seen
us? Which way had we gone? and oth
er questions, which the few people they
met responded to with a grunt or n
shake of the head. I put my bend out
to see and, recognizing one of them,
drew back and began to blow my bel
lows as If my life depended on It. And
It did. Presently one of the outlaws
rode up to the shop.
"Hello, ?.har!" he shouted.
"Waal," I replied, stili blowing and
keeping my face turned from him.
"Seen a man, two wonieu, a boy an,
a nigger go through the town?"
"Hain't seen no one."
He rode off, but I knew the storm
had not yet blown over. I went on
working the bellows, and It was well
I did so, for presently more of the band
rode Into town, and one of the horses
having lost a shoe, Its rider dismounted
In front of the shop and told me to put
This was something I bad not count
ed on. I knew no more about horse
shoeing than about knitting, but I put
a bold face on the matter and went to
"What the-yo' doln?" yelled tho
man. "Air yo' goln tor put that shoo

"Don't yo' s'pose I know my busi

With that I seized a knife and began
to cut But I was too excited to pare
tho hoof even If I had been an expert,
and in another moment the man yelled
again, "Ef yo' :ut that critter's hoof
oft*, I'll brain yo'l"
"Here, Sandy," I cried to the black
smith within, "come shoo this man's
* critter. lie thinks ho knows more'n I
do about shocln."
Tho blncksmlth finished the job,
while I, pretending to be greatly irri
tated, was glad to escape into his
dwelling house. Going to a froat win
dow and dropping a curtain h# *4hat 1
could look Into the road without being
seen, I took a view of the attention.
The guerrillas were scattered abeVt the
town, nome riding around the ftouscs
hunting for us, others sitting of* their
horses, ouestioning the Inhabitants as
to out whereabouts. Captain Mngold
was l.i command. A negro bojp was
playing "hopscotch" on &e sUKrwnlk.
The captain called to him:
"To* boy thar, didn't yo' see aajrbody
go this way awhile ago?"
"Two women an a boy 'bo?| ^lg 's

"Yea. Which way did they gmT

he pointed to a path leading across the
road we stward.
"Bore, you," cried the captain to two
men who were watering their fcorses
at a wooden trough In front ?f the
shop, "strike out on that path.**
The men darted away, leaving the
captain alora In the road. A little old
woman oamo out of"u house opposite
and began to j.vy him in a cracked
voice, poking fun at him for not being
able to catch a party of women. She
talked ?o familiarly with him that I
began to suspect sho know him. 1

said the woman. "Now, you uns nit

the road northward.
??That won't do," said the captain.
"We Just came from up thnr."
Thero was a pause, at the end of
which I heard tbo woman Buy in a low
The voice was familiar. '? saw the
man start, then exclaim, "Grout God!"
The old WOUian went ever to him
and, taking hold of his bridle rein, be
gau to whisper to him earnestly. Pres
eutly I heard the captain say:
"I can't do It."
There was more whispering, and by
the woman's attitude I knew she was
pleading. Was she pleading for usV
If so, who could this good friend he to j
take so much interest in us?
"I'd do It fo' yo* an yo' friend, but
not the other one."
She fumbled with the rein, she strok
ed his horse's neck, she laid her band
on his, all the while talking earnestly
and looking up Into his eyes, I fancied
beseechingly, though I could not see
her face, for her back was toward me,
while the man's head was drooping
lower and lower. Her bonnet fell back
on her neck, and I knew the old wom
an was Jaqueline.
"Can yo' refuse when I aSK It7" she
said loud enough for me to hear.
The mnn was silent. The struggle
within him was plain In every line of
his face. At last he said:
"Fo' yo' sake, little one, I'll do it."
She took his rough brown hand In
her little white one am out her head
down upon It, then looking up through
tears: "I can give yo' only a trifle In
reward, captain, dear. Kiss inc."
Bending from his saddle, ho rever
ently touched his lips to her forehead.
Lost In wonder at the strange sight,
I was nevertheless congratulating my
j Bolf that she bad secured the man's
promise to draw off his force when
the whole nd vantage was spoiled
through the Insane jealousy of Captain
Beaumont. It seems that the captain
had disdained to hide with the rest.
Indeed he had no occasion to bide. The
guerrillas did not know that he was
?with our party, and he was In no more
danger from them than any other man
would be. lie had, however, yielded
to Jack's persuasion to go Into a house
and keep out of sight. When the guer
rillas rode Into town, he was sitting by
n window sipping n glass of Tennessee
whisky,, and at the moment Hingold
Imprinted the kiss on Jack's forehead,
as 111 luck would hove it, he happened
to look out of the window. In nnother
moment he was lu the road discharging
his revolver nt the guerrilla, who,
drawlug his own weapon, returned the
fire. A ftifillnde followed, Rlngold re
ceiving a wound that put him hots do
combat. Swaying In his saddle, he fell
fainting to the ground.
Jaqueline turned upon Beaumont like
a fury. I have seen little Jack In many
a towering passion, but never anything
like this. Her faco wni, livid, her eyes
flaming. She tried to speak, but her
Ire choked her. At last one word ex
pressive of her pout up feelings came
out like a pistol shot:
Having thus relieved herself to Cap

Swaying in his saddle, he jell fainting tc
trato Rlngold, knelt beside him, croon
ing over him as If ho had been dearer
to her than all the world beside.
At this moment a guerrilla, who had
doubtless been attracted by the firing,
dashed down the road. Beaumont
caught sight of him Just as Jack had
hurled her opprobrious epithet. With
an expression Indicating that ho would
prefer death to another such word fron
tho girl who bad enthralled him, he
started to meet the Invader. Shot*
were exchanged, nnd the guerrilla feli

When the firing began, with one
bound, disguised and begrimed as I
was, I cleared my window. When
ltingold fell, I was Joined by the other
members of our party from the houses.
Puck had blackened himself for a ne
gro, and It was lie who had answered
Rlngold's questions. Helen and Ginger
had hidden without disguise. The peo
ple of the town, one man and eight wo
men, besides children, rushed into the
road. I knew well that the absence of
the guerrillas was but temporary; that
they would soon come down on us In a
"We have no time to lose," I cried.
"We must get away at once."
Turning to the townspeople, I asked
If they could furnish a conveyance.
"I've a horse and wagon In my shed,"
said the smith.
"Out with It, quick!"
Every one of us took a hand In har
nessing the team, and In three minutes
by .the clock we had finished. Then
we all tumbled In, except Jnck, who
declared she would never leave her
friend, Captain ltingold. There was
no time to handy words, so I took her
up and tossed her Into the wagon,
where she fell In a heap. Rising on
her knees, she shook her clinched list
at me and cried to the wounded guer
rilla that she would come back to him
as f.oon as she could get away. Mean
while the blacksmith was driving us
down the road, belaboring his horse
with the stump of nn old whip.
A BTKRN CHASM.
ASTRAIGHT road lay before us
to Dechcrd, a few miles dis
tant. The place was of too
great importance for the guer
rillas to dare enter, and If we could
reach It before they could cntcb us we
should be safe.
"How much Is your horse worth?" 1
asked the blacksmith.
"A matter o' soxty dollars."
"If you kill him by hard driving, I'll
give you a hundred, and if you get us
to Decherd before the outlaws can
catch us I'll make It a hundred more."
"Weel, noo. I don't want to be hard
on n mon flyln for his life and wlmmen
folk too. I'll do the best I can and ask
With that he belabored the poor
horse's flanks with the stump of his
whip and sent him galloping onward.
There were no springs to the wagon,
but we valued our lives too well to
draw rein at rut or stone. At one part
of the road I feared that If we did not
cheek our pace we would break a
wheel and be left with no menus to
get on save our legs. I cautioned the
driver to slacken his pace; but, hearing
or fancying he heard the clattering of
horses' hoofs behind, without n word
from mo ho applied the Insh. Now we
bounded Into the nlr and now we were
tossed together like dice in a box.
"Git oop. ye critter!" cried the black
smith, mlngllug Scotch and Tennessee.
"Don't ye know ye're grnggln bonny

down enmo tho butt of tho whip. It
was harrowing to see a horse forced to
give his life to save ours, font our situ
ation wns too critical to wnrrant any
slackening of speed. Jnck, who of all
our force was usually most frightened
at danger ahead and would tight It
most vigorously when face to faco with
It, for once acted In reverse at seeing
tho poor brute making leaps that were
"Stop beating that horse, you brute,"
sho cried, "or I'll beat you I" And she
sprang forward to seize tho whip. 1
caught her In my arms. Sho looked up
Into my face and burst Into tears.
Whether It was wholly sympathy or
overstrained nerves I did not know;
probnbly both. At any rate, I protect
ed her from the Jolting by keeping her
In my arms, while she hid her face so
that she could uot see the suffering

but a baby."
"Shut up. yo" little nlggerl" sho cried.
I coidd not repress a smile at the re
tort, seeing which, Jnck realized tho
absurdity of It all and broke Into a
laugh, while the tears continued to run
down her cheeks.
"Won't yo' let mo support yo' against
the Jolting?" nsked Captain Beaumont
"Yo'?" Do yo' suppose Pd let yo*
touch me? Yo' shot my b.Htt frlcud."
"Do yo' dislike me fo' shooting?a
robber?" asked her admirer sadly.
"I bate yo'."
Beaumont settled down in a corner of
tho wngon In despondency. After
awhile Juck slid down besldo him,
whereupon he suddenly lighted up and
took ns much Interest In our flight as
nny one of the party.
We were a wild looking load to the
few people who passed us. Whenever
we saw a farm wagon coming or going
we would shout to Its driver to get out
of the way. They roust have supposed
our horse to bo a runnway, for over.*

pictures of that rido which I can see
today, so vividly were they stamped
on my memory. An old man with hi

earth from the inoou und were making '.
ready to take to the sky again. Ne
groes, children, country lads, faced the
road as we passed and stood wonder
stricken till we were out of sight.
Coming to a rise In the ground where
wo could look to our rear for perhaps a
mile, we wero terror stricken to see a
man shoot around a bend In the road at
a gallop. In a moment another follow
ed. We could not see If thero were
any more, for we passed over the sum

us that It was one mile to Decherd.
"One tulle to their two. Can we not
do it, driver?" I asked quickly.
The only answer was- another "Git

horse's rump. The eyes of all were
strained to the rear, watching to see
Just what chance there was from time

of us out of the wagon, fortunately on

to the prostrate aulmal, I found him

face white ns a cloth, we all about her,
dreading every moment that the life

on It. Helen got In with her, and, the
rest of us walking beside, the cavalry
acting as escort, we boru her to the
town and lodged her In a room In the
main hotel of the place.
We found the town agog with news
of the llrst day's bnttle at Pittsburg
Landing, and I knew that my general
would hold himself ready to co-operate.
I determined to Join my command at
once. Having been assured that Jack's
wound would not prove fatal, I ar
ranged for the transportation u? the
party as soon as she could be moved,
then gathered my little force In her
room and announced my Intended de

what my disclosure had cost her. Ex

swept out of the room.
"I like yo' of yo* are a Yankee," Jack
cried after me.
I left the hotel, my brain In a tumult.
