BBjj prolonged Htaro the man wont about his

BBr onud about The men in the car
BBJ , scarcely noticed mo at all , and though
BBj my conductor was grub his face was
BBJi not forbidding and ho Knew Addison
BB Seethed by these thoughts l'dobod my
BB eyes in good earnest and tried to sleep
BB 1 was accustomed to traveling now , and
BB boon dropnod into an uuoasy dee and
BB , began to tlroam 1 dreamed ot a face I
BB , had not soon for along.long while the
BB fTic.o of an old hohoolfollow , Krio Proctor
BB by name , who had gene outwostsomo
BB time ago , and was often montloiicd by
BB Addibou in his letters Krio was a uic ' o
BB boy before ho wont west , a clumsy ,
BB overgrown youth , but very ainia-
Bfl bio and good natured , with a
BB great bead of yellow hair and
BB blmjilo , honest , blue eyes I dent
BB know why I dreamed of Krio now ; per
BBB haps it was because ho was the only
BB ] ) ursou I know in Texas besides the
B tntnily ; but I did dream of him very
BB vividly 1 thought I had arrived at
B Kuntnim and found him on the plut-
B form liibtoud of AddUou Ho looked
B v ry much elder than ho used to , his
B face haggard and worn Ho did not
B speak to mo , hut , taking my hand , led
B ino away until wo weruoutof sight of
BB the btation , and thou lifted mo on to tv
BB horse which had appeared from X
BB dent know where , and wo wont gallop
BB iug away at a tremendous pace
BB 1 begged him to lot mo go , but
B he shook his head nnd spurred on
BB fuoter I began to fool cold and queer ,
BB us if ho wore made of ieo and wcro
I freezing nui All at once ho stepped
J mo with a sharp jerk , nnd with a cry
BJ Hung mo away , and I felt myself falling
Be falliug as if from some great height
and awoke The train was still Wo
BT hud pulled up at n wayside station to
BJ water the engine , and 1 was shlverieg
with the chill nir The dawn was nt
hand , and 1 slipped out of the train and
walked briskly up ami down to warm
tiiyr-alf , rind by the tiin the wants of
the engine wore Mitlsllod the sun was
rising , and l began to recover my
spirits
The car looked much shabbier by
daylight than it hnd douo before , but L
eared liltlo for that , Tor wo wcro forty
miles on our way , San tana , would ho
reached in another hour nnd my
troubles ho ever
1 tried to take interest in the appear
ance ot the country , but it looked very
Uninteresting , ami not u bit romantic
Only a dull extent of brown grass on
either hand , stretching cmllcHly into
enaco Tlio prairie , 1 was told Where
tlio antelopes rove , and buffalo miiy still
bo scon- with a strong telescope !
At last n short bin IT whlstlo from the
engine like the bark of some giant dog ,
a movement among the pasMougors , and
it jarring sonsatlon beneath my foot
Tlio goal of my deslro was not far on" .
Now the door of the car was nponcd
wldo , and the conductor , who had kept
away from mo till the journey , cuino in
from the baggage vrvi to take tickets
Mi no was the last ! He examined it
with unnecessary deliberation , and
then dollvorcd hlmsolf of the following
ominous remark :
Now , sny ! why didn't yo wrlto the
colonel that vow wcro oomiu'V"
The familiarity of this address would
have disgusted mo at tiny ordinary
ttmo , but now I only began to fool miserably -
orably anxious
. ' • I did wrlto , ' " I replied breathlessly
"Ho will bo nt the station to moot mo "
"Honiirtl"
The rejoinder came as sharply as tlio
ping of an arrow I jumped up with u
lump in my throat and looked out of
the window
Tlio train hud stopped and most of
the passengers wcro leaving it There
was no station or depot hero ; only a
rough platform on ouo side of the line
with "Snntnnu" paiutod in tipsy black
letters on the rnil and n solitary log
house a few yards away , with Lost
ollleo in whlto letters on the door Yet
tliis was undoubtedly my destination ,
and the conductor was right Addison
had not coino , There was several
rough , red-faced cruaturos lounging on
the platform , wearing broad-brimmed
hats , great riding boots and prominent
spurs ; there wcro our passengers dis
appearing one hv ouo into the log
house in buurcii of breakfast , hut there
was no C'oloaul Wynne What could
have happened ? I turned from the
window with n gasp , nnd met the eyes
of the conductor looking down upon mo
with the grimmest expression I had
ever coon
Well ? " ho said with an exasperat
ing interrogatory iiillcctlou on that ex
pressive word
"Ho cannot have received my let
ter , " 1 observed hurriedly , striving to
keep my voire clear and itcady while
the lump in my throat grow and grow ,
and I wanted to cry very badly indeed
To avert any catastrophe , I suggested
that my belongings should bo removed
from the train _ The conductor in
stantly became , brisk and helpful , and
wo wore boon passing by the rcd-facod
men , who drew back to give us room ,
and stared with great round ,
btupld ojes , ns if they had
never been a girl in a gray ulster
before We went bti aight to the post
olllce , and woio mot by the postmaster
before wo reached the door Ho was a
tall , darlc man , witli only ono eye : a
dreadfully ugly man , with iv very dirty
faco'and still dirtier hands a wicked
looking man I thought The con
ductor greeted him as if they wore old
acquaintances
"Scon Colonel Wynno lately , Hank ? ' '
"A week ago eamo for his mall "
This is his sister "
Mr Hnuk nodded , as if ho wcro al
ready aware of the fact , and stared very
hard at mo with his ono eye
"Is is my brother heroi" I ventured
to ask , just for something to say
"IIo's ' at the fort , Miss "
And how far olt Is that ? "
Thirty miles boo line "
Mv heart began to boat at a very un-
comfojtablc rnto A horrible Htato of
things !
Would you kindly advise mo what
to do ? "
"Brenkfast , " struck ia the conductor
decidedly "You've oat nothing for ton
hours "
Thank you , " I answered politely
"I urn hungry ; but I wunt toknow how
I am get to Port Lincoln "
This question was not to be answered
at once Neither of the men scorned to
hoar it , and without further ooroniony ,
ushered mo into the House , through ouo
long room full of mon with a steve in
the nilddlo ot it , a liquor bar , and several -
oral small tables , to a small room behind -
hind , where there wore heaps of blank
ets scattered about a rough bedstead ,
ono chair and a table
Sit down , " said the postmnstor ,
pointing to the eh nir I obeyed , fooling
very forlorn and helpless It wns a
dreadful position to be in There did
not hcom to bo n woman anywhere ; I
was thirty mlles from brother , with no
vlslhlo moans of roiiching him ; nnd
tliis dreadful one-oyed man wus master
of the situation A whispered colloquy ,
lusting bovoral minutes , now took place
between the postmaslorand the conduc
tor , after which tlio former , whoso name
I subsequently discovered to ho Mr
Hank Wybrow , turned to mo and cleared
his throat as though ho wore about to
address a camp meeting
"There's but two things to bo douo ,
miss , ns far as we km sco , nnd you must
fix on which road Hulls yo best Kunnol
Wynno dent ' expect ynu , I reckon , so
you'll have to hunt htm or send nnd git
him to como for vow I cant poke up
much accommodation hero : nnd there
nln't ' a womnn nonror than the fort jubt
now ; but If you loot ' to stay Ill llx what
I may tonight and send a boy to the
kunnol If this ain't good enough Ill
see if any ono is bound Fort Lincoln
way with iv waggon to tnko yo there ,
Think It out , will yo ? while I dish
breakfast , and let mo know your mind
in an hour "
This was very fairly said I thanked
Mr Wybrow for his offers , and wns
able to bid farewell to the conductor ,
who had another ton miles to travel ,
with a stout heart
It did not take mo long to mnko up
my mind , I cannot say that I relished
the Ideaof a tlnrty-mllos drive with a
stranger , but while breakfast was in
course of preparation a little incident
happened that made tins dilllculty scorn
a very Hinnll ono The room I was in
wus lighted by ouo Bquuro window not
fur from tlio ground , and after the post
master had left the room I saw three
pairs of eyes , belonging to thorough
fucos of some of the men I hud soon on
the platform , staring llxedly ut mo
They disappeared with great quickness
when they saw that I was aware of their
scrutiny ; but tlio feeling of boiug
wutohod was very unpleasant , and I felt
that 1 would not paes a night at Santuua
on any account ,
Mr Wybrow uppenrod relieved when
I told him this.nudhe brought up break
fast introduced a muu who owuud a
wagon , and guaranteed to arrive at Fort
Lincoln before sundown
I can see the folio anew , though it is
ton years bIuco that day A very thin
man , of middle holghthdrossod in neat
brown O'lnvass clothing , His hair was
very smooth , jmrtod in the middle and
eurriod back behind his ears as tightly
as if it were hound with rppo Ho had
u small , round head , a lint uoso , brown
eyes , rattier dull and expressionless ,
very high check bones nnd thick lips
An ugly man ; yet quiet and modest in
mnniior and speech , with a soft , well
niotlulnted voice Ho wus incllnod to
bo bald , stooped in his gait , and seemed
a ruther stupid nnd nltogothor insif nl-
llcaiit kind of a person A doctor of
inodlcino , " ho culled himself , and nddod
with simo dignity that ho was a friend
of Colonel Wynnes "
I trusted him His quiet voice was a
relief after the harsh speech by Mr
Wybrow , nnd my ono object in llfo just
then was to getaway from those horri-
hlo staring eyes In less thun an hour
I washy his side , jolting along the Fort
Lincoln road , behind a stout team of
mules
I cannot remember now how far wo
went before I began to fool nervous nnd
uncomfortable I know that It wns a
long way ; for I remember congratulat
ing myself upon having loft San tan u ,
because my companion told mo that the
into postmaster had boon murdered by
cowboys n week or two ago this was
doubtless how my letter miscarried
and that the station wns known to
bo one of tlio worst haunts
for rowdies In the country Out
the time ciimo at length when
ho fell quite silent , and I then found
that whenever 1 ttu-ned my head to
view the prairie about us , his eyes
rostcd unon my face O , how terrible
It was ! I edged away from him to the
farthest corner ot the scat , and felt
moro and moro helpless and unnerved
every moment The suspense did not
last long When ho perceived my fears
ho boldly raised his eyes and looked ut
mo with a smile of the most horrible
kind Then lie laughed softly , a dry ,
hard laugh I tried to speak now , but
my throat was dry and parched , andmv
tongue scomod paralyzed lie laughed
again , louder , and stooping quickly ,
pulled up the mules with a jerk 1
Knew what was coming know , and be
fore he could touch mo sprang from the
wagon Ho followed mo with the swift ,
silent movement of a snake , and ns I
turned to meet him , for I could not run ,
he laughed for tlio third time The
sound roused mo , I tried to seize his
ills throat with both hands I lolt that
I could kill him for that laugh Hut ,
ohl the weakness of a woman ! Why
are wo- not as strong ns mun ? Ho
caught my wrists in his hard , brown
lingers ; ray arms were forced backpow
erless and helpless as if held in iron
bauds I screamed now In good earnest ,
and struggled against hiin with nil my
strength nnd soul , and all the time I
felt his grip grow tighter und tighter
his muscles were of stcol Suddenly ho
relaxed his hold and stood still , and his
Hushed face became colorless and livid ,
as if I had accomplished my
desire and ho was dying
Thou ho lot mo go , stnrtlng from
mo as if I were some poisonous thing ;
and , dropping on his knees , ho bent his
head to the ground and listened When
ho rose to his foot a moment later ho
reeled and staggered llko a drunken
man , looking at me wildly .vlth the ex
pression of some hunted beast of prey
I stared at him dumbfounded for a mo
ment , feeling very giddy und sick ; and
then I know what ho _ bad heard Wo
wore in a hollow , between two rolls of
prairie , and could not sco far on cither
side , but sound carries a long way in
this country , and oven my unnecuh-
tomed ears now caught n low rumbling
thunder , becoming louder every instant
the Hying hoofs of galloping horses
It came from behindwmio ; ono had fol
lowed us Whoever it might bo , tlio
wretched man who had betrayed his
trust wns likely to got short shrift Ho
know it well , and now threw himself on
his knees at my foot , muttering , in a
hearse whisper : .
Como back to the wagon They'll
murder mo in cold blood else , before
your eyes I swear I was only fooling
1 had not a wrong thought in my heart
Save mo , save me ! "
I was willing to do that , much as I
loathed the creatdro , for ho had not
hurt mo ; but I could not go back to the
wagon I began to fool very faint nnd
queer ; the sensation of safety , after the
horrible tension a minute ago , was ; use
voro reaction , and almost too much for
mo The poor wretch saw this , and his
muttered supplication rose to a bitter
cry
cry."Thoy are cowdojb ; thoy'vo heard
your call They'll tear mo to pieces if
vou drop Dent ' ! Oh , my God ! my
GoJ ! "
I bet my tooth hard I would not
yield to my weakness Bad as his in
tentions were , I could not lot him bo
killed With a great ollort I managed
some how to keep my head stonily , and
tlion my rescuers swept ever the hill ,
and the danger was ever
Twelve mounted men there were , rid
ing at n tearing gallop , with frco bridle
rein They gave a tremendous shout
When they saw us , and then there was a
great Hush of stool and silver , as twelve
revolvers sprang from shcatli.and were
cocked and made ready for use The
poor oroaturo at my feet buried his face
in his hands and crouched it turror.and
I felt very nervous , indcod , for these
cowboys looked dreadfully llorco On
they came , silent now , many of them
with bare knives between their teeth
No wonder this guilty creature wits in
despair 1 wont forward to moot them ,
and was about to speak , when a Hut
waved wildlyand a hearty voice groatod
mo , and Isaw a face that t know It
wns Erie's , pale and stern , as 1 had been
it in my droan , but handsomer , very
much handsomer ; and in another in
stant ho was olt his horse , and shaking
both my hands until my lingers
riositivoly ached I wi's In safe kcop-
iudood ! * * *
ng , now ,
I I have a HUlo moro to toll It took
all Krio's inlluonco and my oiitroatles
to save the wretched man Dut it was
done in the end , and we were soon on
our way to the fort There 1 found out
thnt the very cowboys I hud dreaded so
much at Santana were instrumental in
causing tilts'tlmoly arrival of the rescue
party They had their suspicions , nnd
when Krio who rode into Snntnna hull
an hour after I loft it said ho should
follow mo , they volunteered to a man
I may pass ever Addison's astonish
ment when wo nrrlvod at the fort Ho
had never rocorved my letter Wo had
a most joyful time that day ; hut I think
what interested mo most were some
words I overboard Addison sny to Erie
Proctor : You must stay at least a
month with us We dent often see
you , and now that Klslo is here ! "
Krio did stay ; and T am bound to ad
mit that ho made the most of his time
Before I wont buck to Chicago we were
engaged to bo married
