straight to the cabin. I expected somo
tousled himad to appear, roused by the
thunder of so many hoofs, but nono
came. The cabin remained silent and
lone. There was a small garden, but no
fenco around either it or the house.
Old Put dashed straight for the door,
as if he know what was wanted of him,
which, in fact, he did, and stopped five
feet in front of it so abruptly that the
girl would have shot over his head had
I not held her.
Sho sprang to the grouid. I slipped
the bridle off Old Put's head, gavo him
a slap and cried:
Ie galloped around the house and
diappeared, his hoof beats dying away
In the darkness. Then I shoved the door
oleni and rushed in, dragging the girl
after m0. I slammed back the door and
looked for the bar that is commonly
used as a fastening in such frontier
houses. There it wats, and I shoved it
into its place. Nothing but a battering
ram could break in that door now I
"Safo for the timo!" I cried. "I defy
them to take us in this fort I"
Then I looked around nc. Th6 girl,
half fainting, had s%aggered against tho
wall and was leaning there. It was a
house of but a singlo room. On a wide
brick hearth a firo was still burning, or
rather smolderiig, yet it threw out
enough light to discloso tho contents of
the room. No hmnan being was thero.
Everything of value except tho heavy
furnituro, which was of tho rudest do
scription and worth not much moro
than raw lumber, had been renoved,
and the whole appearance of the place
indicated that its occupants had taken
a hasty departure. It was easy enough
to guess tho causo. Som poor family,
frightened by the converging of the
armies upon this region, and with good
reason, too, for io other state was har
ried in this war as was ours of South
Carolina, hlaid gathered up their portable
goods and fled to safer quarters and per
haps not an hour beforo our arrival, as
tho firo still burning proved.
"They might havo imado things a lit
tlo moro c*)mfortablo for us, ' ' I said
cheerfully, for 1mly spirits had gone up
withi a leap, "but it's good as it is, and
we havvie't aiy right to complain. Mr.
South Carolina farmer, whoever you aro
and wherever you aro, wo thank you."
The girl smiled faintly and walked
mechanically to the fire, where sh1o sat
down oil a rude stool and spreadout her
fingers beforo the coals as if she were
in her homo.
"Take a little of this, " I said, for I
saw t halt sho was hillf dazed. There was
yet a little whisky left inl my flask, and
I handed it to her. Sho obeyed mo like
a child and drank it.
Then I turned my attention to the
single window, which was closed with
a heavy but ill fitting shutter, some
wandering moonbeiaims finding i way
through the cracks. Peeping out, I
could seo the guerrillas dismounted )o
yond pistol shot and holding a confer
"They are talking, but lot 'em talk,
my dear, " I said to the girl. "They
can't got us in this cabin. What a neat,
stout little place it isl''
I really began to have a friendly feel
ing toward her. We had been through
so many dangors together, and besides
she was imly prisoneor. It is much easier
for the conqueror to be generous to the
conquered than for the conquered to be
generous to the conqueror.
She did not reply either to my words
or illy muamnor. IIor cheoks, which had
been so whlite before, were faintly
flushed with 1pink, but I could not tell
whether it wvas the fire or net. She
seemelld to 1me to be in a state of collapse,
nlatural to a girl, even the strongest anid
bravest, after so n'lch.
"Now set tile table for us, " I said.
"We mlust cat a little after our long,
hard ride, for we will need our strength.
See if you can't find a candle In thlat
cupboard. And, here, take myl bundlo
and1 get out tile food. "
I-hanlded her tihe wallet of bread and
meat whlich I had snatched from Old
P'ut's back almost wvithi the same mo
tion with whlichl I had swept off his
bridle. Silo took It, drew the rough pine
.talo to thle contor of the room and
spiread tihe food upon01 It. Then, sure
enlough, sho found iln theO cupboard a
picco of old tallowv candle, which shlo
lighlted and stuckc inl tile nliddl of tile

seemled to revive hoer. 11cr eyes bright

"I was tired merely, " she said. "I
(lid not lose courage. Don't think that.
I 'ml an Englishl girl."
"I never saidl you lost courage, " I ro
plied. "'I tink that you hlavo borne

"Come anId take a look at our e

strenlgth and( courage hlad oomo baok and
how wvell thley became her.
She put hecr eyes to 0110 of the craoks
and looked out.. Crowder and( Is 1men1,
unIconsciously imiltatinlg us, Ihad begun
to muake thlemiselves comfortable, first by

." Why do they follow us so persistent
ly?" the girl asked.
"13For a variety of reasons, " I replied.
"I might mlention for one thlat they are
anIxious to take me. You knew you told
them thait I was thle bearer of very im
portanIt newsV whIich I would tell under
proper 9ossuro to Tarleton. "
"Bthtwas not true."
"Thley do not know thlat it was not."
"I wish they were real British sol
diers, " she said. "I do not believe that
any of thorm ever saw England. I be
Ilievo they are American TJories, maybe
American rebels in British uniforms,"
I did not care to argue with her, sueh
is thu strength of prejudice founded on
teachIng and training, espeelally Brit
lah prejudice and most espeoially the
prejudice of British wvomen.
"Wlw.did .you take oft his bridjef"
she asked aili ini~cdawayfr6it the
I h1ad hung up (Old P3ut's bridle w, a
nail in tho wall.
"In order that I may have it when I
want to Put it on him again, which
won't be long, I hope, '' I replied.
"Why, tho horso is gone!" she said.
I laughed, laughed in her face, which
turned red, and then, sceing that it was
red, deliberately laughed again. Hero
was a woman who prided herself on her
intelligence and quickness of mind, and
with good causo, too, so I had begun to
believe, and yet after passing at day and
part of a night in Old Put's presenco
she know so littlo about himl
"Why do you laugh?" sho asked red
ly a. I ingrily.
"I Inugh at your ignorance, " I said,
"tihe fact that you know so little of our
comrade, in many respects the shrewd
est and ablest of us three, as he is cer
tainly the swiftest and the strongest.
That horso has not left us. I merely
took his bridle, off in order that he
might not bo troubled with it, that ho
might cat botter, for no doubt hie will
find somewhere around hero, even in
winter, a bit of grazing on sono sheltei
ed and suiny southern slopo. iIe will
tako caro of himself and come back to
Us when wo need him."
"But suppose the guerrillas tako
"I wish I Was as sure that they
would not take us, " I said.
Then I led the way to the tablo. I
drow lp the stool for tihe lady and an
old pino box that I found in a corner
for myself. A little water was left in
the canteen. She drank part of it and
"Ifero's to the health of King
" Ytm, " I said as I drank the re
mainder of the water, "this is to the
health of King George-Ceorgo Wash
ington I I'm glad to see that your con
version has beguni. "
hIo frowned at me, but we had an
amicablo dinner over the scraps never
theless. I stoppe-d at intervals to watch
tho progress of tho partisans outside.
They had not yet mdot any movement
against us, and all sat or lay around
tihe fire. I counted thei-six-and I
knew that all were there, as choice a
lot of scoundrels as one could find on
thq soil of time 13 colonies.
I turned iny eyes away from the crev
ice to look at the girl. The rest aind the
bite of food had imado a wonderful ii
provenient. Sho was a true English
rose, I could see that-a roso of Devon
or Warwick or Kent, or whatever is fair
est amiong their roses, a girl with yel
low hair that shiono liko fresh gold in
the sun, tinted with red in the firelight,
andt a brow of whito and cheeks of the
warm pink that is the heart of the pink
rose. Oh, well, as I said twice before,
Over"body knows that tile most beauti
ful women are the most dangerous, and
I wondered if these Saxon maidens of
old England wero ever an exception.
For a moment I felt a feeling of warmth
and kinship to old England, but then
this England, which is so kind to herself
and so appreciative of her own, merits,
has never been anything but an enemy
"What are you thinking of, Mr.
Marcel?" she said suddenly as she looked
up. " Why are you so serious?"
"I ant astonished that you should ad
dress mo as Mr. Marcel and not as a
rebel, with a ropo around his neck."
She patted the floor meditatively
with her foot and looked away from mo
and( at tile fire.
"ft was a mistake duo to forgetful
ness,'' she saidl, with an air of resent
ment. "I will net (10 it again. "
"I would not forget epithets when
youj speak of us, " I said. " You wvill get

"Do you wvant another quarrel?" she
