"TlrtV I-injr Is It rlnco you have seen
Hinor Tnppooo,' ns your sinter
calls lirr." asked Mrn ITnl following
the train of womanly thought then
drifting through her howl, as sho set
before her vltdtor o biluuntng goblet
of buttermilk.
"Two ycurs. She was at the Point
n day or two the Minimer of our grad
uation," he answered, eurelessly. "A
Toal little Indian girl t.ho wub, too, bo
dark and shy and hllent, yet I heard
Prof. M ' daughter and others
speak of her Inter; she pleased them
co much, and .IorkIc thinks there's no
girl like her."
"And j on hnven't seen her since
not even her picture?" nRked Mrs, Hal,
rising from her easy-chair, ".lust let
rue hliow you one she sent Hal laBt
week. I tuink there's n surprise In
tore for you, young man," was her
mental addition as she tripped within
doors.
The nurse girl, a half-breed, one of
the numerous progenj of thn Trench
trappers and c.ploiers who had mar
lied among the Sioux, was hushing
the burly little son nnd heir to sleep
In his iucl an urndle, crooning some
song nbcut the fireflies nnd Heeclut,
the blg-iyed owl, nnd the mother
stooped to press her lips upon the
rounded check and to flick awny a
tear-drop, for Ilnl second had roared
lustily when on'cud to lis noonday
nap. Awny to the northward the
heavily wooded heights seemed tipped
by lleccv. m mirer clouds, nnd oft -o
the northeast l.ii unle Peak thrust
his dense ciop of june and scrub oak
nlovc the mass of snowy npor that
floated lazily across that grlm-visngcd
.southward scarp. The drowsy hum of
Insects, the plash of cool, running wa
ters fell softly on the ear Hndcr the
hndc of willow nnd cottonwood cattle
nnd horses were lardy switching at
" Wot even her picture?"
the swarm of gnats nnd files or dozing
through the heated hours of the day
Out on the level lint beyond the cor
xal thu troopers had unsaddled, and
the chargers, many of them stopping
to roll In equine ecstasy upon the turf,
were being driven out In one big held
to grave. Without and within the
ranch everything seemed to speak of
peace and M-cur'ty. The master rode
the range long miles nvvay in search
or straying cattle, leaving his loved
ones without thought of danger. The
solemn treaty that bound the Sioux
to keep to Hie north of the Platte
stood sole sentinel over his vine nnd
fig tree. True there had been one or.
two instances of depredation, but
they could be fastened on no particu
lar band, and all the chiefs, even defi
ant lied Cloud nnd insolent, swag
gering l.ittlo l!!g Man, denied all
knowledge of the peipetratois. Spot
ted Tall, It was known, would sevcie
ly punish nny of his people who trans
gressed, but he could do nothing with
the Ognllallas. Xovv they were not
200 miles nvvay to the north, their
rnnks swollen by accessions from all
the disaffected villages and turbulent
young braves of the swarming bands
along the Missouri and Yellow stone,
nnd If their demands were resisted by
the government, or worse, if they
were permitted to have breech-loaders
or magazine rifles, then just coming
into use, no shndovv of doubt remained
that war to the knife would follow.
Then how long would It be before they
-ame chorglng down across the Platte,
east or west of rrayne, and' raiding
those new ranches in the Laramie
valley?
Reassuring ns ho meant his words
to be, Marshall Dean himself looked
nnxiously about at the unprotected
vvnlls. Not even the customary "dug
out" or uudeigiound refuge siemed to
huve been prepared, Almost every
homestead, big or little, of those days,
had Its tuuiiil from the cellar to a
dugout near at hand, stocked with
provisions and water and provided
with loopholes commanding the neigh
borhood, a'nd herein the besieged
could take refuge and stnnd off the
rndlans until help should come from
the iienitbt foil "Che name of J'ol
torn Is our sufegunid," said Mis. Hal
in her happy honeymoon dn.vs, but
that was U tore the mother told her
of the threats of liiirnii.g Star or thn
story of tiro Opulliilln girl he vninlv
hkyed. "All thai happened no long ago.

forlh again, a little carte dc vlsite In
her hand, a smile of no little signifi
cance on her lips. "Now, Mr. l)enn,
will you tell me what y on think of that
for a pappoosc?"
And with wonderment In his eyes
the young ofllcer stod nnd held it and
gaed.
riicie stood Pappnose, to be sure,
but what a change! The little maiden
with the dark braids of hair hanging
furbelow hervvnlst had developed Into
a tall 'lender gli 1, with clear-cut oval
face, crowned by n mass of dark tress
es. Her heavy, low -arching brows
spanned the thoughtful deep, dark
brown o.ves that ceeuiid to sp'enk the
soul within nnd the beautiful face was
lighted up with a smile that showed
Just a peep of faultless while teeth,
gleaming through tlio warm etuvesof
her soft, sensitive lips. The foitn was
eMiuIsItcly rounded, jet supple and
erect.
"Hasn't Jesrlc written you of how
Nell has giown and Improved?" said
Mrs. Hall with u woman's quick note
of the admiration and surprise in
Dean's regard.
"She must have," was the answer,
"I'm sure she has, but perhaps 1
thought it sclioolglil rhapsody per
hups 1 had too many other things to
think of."
"Perhaps you'll find It superseding
these too many other things, Mr. Sol
dier Hoy," was Mis. Hal's mental com
ment. "Now, kir. If you've gazed
enough perhaps you'll tell me your
plans," and she stietehed forth a re
claiming hand.
Hut he hung on to the prlc. "Let me
keen It n minute," he pleaded. "It's
thclovcllcst thing I've seen In months."
And, studying Ids ubsorbed face, she
yielded, her eyi brows arching, a pret
ty smile of feminine triumph nbout her
lips, and neither ii'itlced the non-com-missioned
ofliei i hiiiiylng within the
gate, nor that li'ilf the men In "C"

stream were n , clr feet and gning

landmnik of the iniige and floating

CHAPTER VII.
Lieut. Dean's orders required that
he shou'.d march his troop without un
necessary delay to Port Emory'i there
to take stntlon relieving troop F, or
dered to change to Frnyne, which
meant, in so many words, to take the
field. Capt. Brooks, still wrestling with
tin: fever, had retired to his quarters
at the old frontier fort that stood so
long on the blufls overlooking the fords
of the Platte. The surgeon said he
must remain In bed at least a week,
so meantime the troop packed up,
sent its wagons ahead over the range,
bade God speed to F ns It passid
through en route to the front, ex
changed a volley of chaff and chewing
tobacco over the parting game of
"fteee out" fought to a finish on
many nn outspread saddle blanket,
then jogged on toward Gate City,
making wide detour nt the sug
gestion of the field ofllcer in com
mand at Frnyne, that they might
fcout the Laramie plains anil see
that all was well at I'olsom's ranch.
This detour was duly reporled to the
peppery veteran at Port Emory, nn old
colonel whose command was by this
time t educed from "headquarters, field,
staff and band," six companies of In
fantry and four troops of cavalry to
the band and two dct-prately over
worked companies of foot. "Two
nights in bed" were all l.Is men could
hope for, nnd sometimes no more tlinn
one, so gi lev ons was the guard duty.
Hence "old PecksnllT.'Mils adjutant nnd
qunrtermnster nnd his two remaining
companies saw fit to tnkc it ns most
unkind in Lieut. Col, Pord to authorize
that diversion of Dean's, nnd highly im
proper on Dean's part to attempt it.
lly this time, too, there wns in cir
culation nt Emory a story thnt this
transfer of (' to interior lines nnd
nvvay from probable contact with the
Sioux wns not so much thai it hnd
done fnr muie thnn Its shnie of that
arduous woik, completely using up Its
captain, as that, now the captain wns
used up, the nuthoi Hies had their
doubts us to the "nerve" of t,lm llett
tennnt In temporary command. A fel
low who didn't enre to come to Emory
and prefened rough duty up along the
Platte must be Incklng In some essen
tial particular, thought the women
folk, and at the very moment that
Marshall Dean snt there ut llnl Fol
soin's ranch, ns brave and linrdy and
capmble a young ofllcer ns ever forded
the Plntte, looking forward wltli pleas
urable anticipations to those days to
come at Emory, with Jessie Jessie
and, of course, Pappoosc so close at
hand In town, there was gaining
ground at the post an impression thnt
the safety of the boaul of oflieers unt
to choose the bite of the new Dig Hum
post had been imperiled by Demi's
weukenlng nt a critical moment in
presence of a band of probably hostile
Sioux, Hurlelgh had plainly intimated
as much to his chief clerk nnd Col,
Stevens, nnd when Lorlug nndi Stone
enme through n dny or two later nnd
questions weie asked about thnt meet
ing, the nid-de-enmp gnve It as dis
tinctly to bu understood that he had
practically assumed command, Demi's
uiperlcnce being tutuJtfiit, and his

tended to rcncli I ort Emory In three
ensy marches. He was anxious to
bring ills horses In In best possible con
dition, despite till their hard service!
yet now, barely two o'clock on this hot
June afternoon, came most unlooked
for, most Importunate Interruption
to lils plans. Springing to the gnte at
the sergeant's summon, he first direct
id his gaze to the distant peaks, recog
nlzedlnstnntly the nature of the smoke
pulls theic ilslng, then turiud for ex
planation to the svvlft-rldlng courier,
whose holme's heels were making the
dust fly from the i.ttn-drled soil. ()n
or two much hnnds.vvlth nnlous fnces
enme hastening over fiotn the eotinl
The darky cook rushed up fiom the
kitchen, rille In linml. Plainly those
fellows were well used to war's alauns.
Mrs. Polsom, with stilling eyes and
drcndfiil anxiety In her face, gazed
only at the huriylug courier, clinging
the while to the pillnr of the portico,
as though needing suppurt. '1 he smoke
pull's on the mountain, the dust-cloud
back of the tearing rider were symp
toms enough for Demi.
"Oct In your herd, sergeant 1" he
shouted, nt the top of his voice; and
over the rushing of the Laramie his
words reached the rousing bivouac,
nnd saddle blankets were sent swing
ing in nlr In signal to the distnnt
guards, and within u few seconds every
horse wns hended for home; nnd then,
to the sound of excited voices was add
ed the rousing thunder of scores of
bounding hoofs, ns, all in u elust-cloud
of their own, the Blxty chnrgeiscame
galloping In, cars erect, eyes ablaze,
nostrils wide, manes and tails stream
ing in the blaze, guldtd by their eager
guards full tilt for camp. Out rnn
their riders, bridles In hand, to meet
and check them, every hone when
within a few yards of his master seem
ing to settle on his hnuncln.s nnd plow
up the turf In the sudden elTort to
check his speid, long months of terv Ice
an the plains and In the heart of Indian
laud having taught them In times of
alarm or peril that the quicker they
reached the guiding hand nnd boie,
each, his soldier on his buck, the
quicker would vanish the common foe.
Even before the panting steed of the
hendloug couiicr came within hailing
distance uf the ranch, half the horses
in the troop were caught and the bits
were ratt.llig bctwein their teeth;
then, as the messenger tore along the
gentle slope that ltd to the gateway,
his wearied horse laboring painfully
at the rise, Mrs. Polsom recognized one
of her husband's herdsmen, a man who
hnd lived long years In Wyoming and
could be unnerved by no false aim in,
and her voice went up in n shriek of
fear as she lead the tidings In his al
most ghastly fnce.
"Where is Hul?" she screnmed. "Oh,
what has happened?"
"He's safe," was the answering cnll,
as the rider waved a rtnssurlng hand,
but at the Instant he bent low.
"Thnnk God. vou'ie beie. lieutenant,"
he gasped. "Mount quick. Hal's cor
ralled two miles out theie under the
butte Siou.xl" And then they saw
that he wan swooning, tliat the blood
was stieamlng down the left thigh and
leg, nnd before hand could help him,
he rolled senseless, doublid up in the
dust at his home's feet, nnd the weary
creatine niver even started.
"Saddle up, men!" rang the ordci
across the stream, aiiiI thin while
strong nrms lllti el and bore the wound
ed herdsman to the porch, Deun turned
to the wailing mU trims, who, white
faced and terror-stricken, was wring
ing her bunds mid moaning nnd run
ning wildly up and down the walk and
calling for some one to go and save
her hiiabnud. Dean almost bore her to
n chair and bade her fear nothing. lie
nnd his men would lose not a moment.
On the floor nt her feet lny the little
card photograph, and Dean, hardly
thinking what he did, stooped, picked
it up and placed It In the pocket of his
hunting shirt. Just as the trumpeter
on his plunging gray reached the gate,
Dean's big, hmidsomc charger trotting
swiftly alongside. In an instant the
lleutennnt was In saddle, in another
second n trooper galloped rip with his
belt and carbine. Already the men
were lending into line ncross the
stream, and, bidding the trumpeter tell
Sergt. Shnughnessy to follow at speed
the young ofllcer struck spur to his
horse and, carbine In hand, a single
trooper nt his heels, away he darted'
down the valley. C troop, splashing
through the fold a moment later, took
the direct road past the stockade of
the eon al, disappeared from sight a
moment behind that wooden fortifica
tion nnd, when next It hove in vievv.lt
wns galloping fiont Into line fnr down
th" Lnramlc, then once more vanished
behind its curtain of dust.
"Two miles out there under the
butte," was the only indication the
young ofllcer had of the scene of the
light, for fight he kuew It must be,
and even ns he went bounding down
the valley he lecallcd the story of the
Indian girl, the threats of llurnlng
Star, the vowed vengeance of her
brothers. Could it be that, taking ad
vantage of tills raid of ited Cloud, fur
from ull the reservations, fnr from
possibility of detection by count of pry
lug agents, the tlnce had inihlced'a
gang or daring, devil-may-care young
warriors to slip nvvay from the lllg
Horn with thorn nnd, riding stealthily
away from the beaten trails, to foul
the Platte beyond the ken of wnteli
ful eyes nt Fctteitnan nnd sneak
through the mountain range to the
beniitiful, fertile valy beyond, and
there llo In wait for Hal Polsoni or for
tliose he loved? What wns toptcvent?
Well they knew the exnet location of
his ranch. They' had fished nnd sport
ed all about It in boy dny n days when
the soldiers nnd the Sioux were nil
good friends, dmy before the mistaken
policy of n post commander had led
to an attack upon a pi nee fnl band, and
that to the niunlilliitmn of the iittuck

that at that moment sojuc of the foe

they knew full well of the coming of
trie cavalry lo the rocue. I!y this
time, more tflan likely, they wen
scurrying of? to Mie mountains again
returning the way they came, with n
stnrl of nt least two miles.
"With or without the coveted

The rond wound nrouud nnd ellsnp

done. Surely not more than n dozen
were In the band, else that courier
could nc;er have hoped to get hi
wounded a he was. The Indians were
too few In number to time follow to
the ranch, .iiardcd as, by almost God
given luck, tl happened to be through
the unlocd-for presence of the
troops, '(, it was a small band
though a during one. Its lookout had

too fnr to be of use to them and just
far enough to be an easy prey for
the lurking foe. Then, too. It occurred
to him that he must not leave the
laneh unpinteete'd. Already he was
within. long rille. range of the height
alieady piohuuly some bendy eye was
glancing through the sights, and the
deadly tube n covering him as he
oamo bounding on. Three hundreel
yards more and his life probably
wouldn't be worth n dollar In con
federate money, nnd wisely the young
lender began to draw rein, nnd, turn
ing lu saddles tdguiile-d to ills single
companion, laboring along one hun
dreel ynielH behind, to hasten to join
him. Presently the trooper came
spurring up,a swarthy young Gor
man, but though straining every
nerve, the troop wns still a mile uwny.
"Hide back, Wcguer, nnd tell the
sergeant to tukn ten men around thnt
side the south side of the bluff," nnd
he pointed with his hand; "the lest to
