A shout from one of the men at tracted the attention of the lend ers. The storm lind spent its force and gone rolling uvva eastward. The thunder xxns liiiuhllnir ftir oxer toward the now Invisible crest of the Mack Hills of Wyoming. The rain afreets had given place to trickling downpour. A dim light win btealing into the blncUnesH of the Korb'e Ioudcr and tlerccr roaied the liox Elder, lnshlug its banks with foam. And then came the cry again, "I tell you It Is. bj Godl for there foes another!" All eyes followed the direction of the pointing finger. All e.ves snw. even -though dimly, the saddled form of a Siorsc plunging and struggling In the flood, making vnln effort to clamber nt, then whirling helplessly away wept out of sight around the shoulder of the bin IT, n ml bornedownon the toss ing waves of the torrent. Men mean no Irreverence when they call upon dheir Maker at such limes, even In sol dier oath. It Is awe. not blasphemy. "IlyGod, lieutenant, thnl's what we'd A-tiecn doing but foi your order." It naa the sergeant who spoke. And nt that ery hour there was ex citement at Fort I'.iiiorj, At eight o'clock the colonel was on his plazn '.looking with gloomy e es oxer the dis tant roxxs of empty barracks. The drum-major with the baud nthls heels came stalking out oxer the grassy pa rade, and the post adjutant, girt xxlth aosh and sword belt, stood in front of iU ofllce nxxnltlng the sergeant-major, who was unaccountably delayed. i!c tfluccd to a shadoxv the garilsonnt Fort Emory might reasonably huve been ex cused, by this time, from the ceremony of mounting a guard, consisting prac tically of ten privates, thiee of whom wore the cavalry jacket; but old "I'eck anift" was determined to keep up bome how of state. He could have no pa rade or review, but nt least he could re quire his guard to be mounted with nil tho pomp and ceremony possible. lie would have ordered his ofllcers out in epaulet and the full dress "Kossuth" Jiat of the period, but epaulets had fceen discarded during the war and not jet resumed on the far frontier. So -it&e rank and file alone were called upon to appear lu the black-feathered oddity a mitgulded staff had designed mm the headgeur of the army, "l'eek BnHIVhulfdoeiidonghbojs, therefore, with their attendant sergeants and corporals In the old fashioned frock -and felt, nnd u still smaller squad of troopers in jellovv-trimmed jnckcts nnd brass-mounted forage caps, were drawn up at the edge of the parade awaiting the further signal of adju tant's call, while the adjutant himself swore suxagely and sent the orderly on the run for the sergeant-major. "When the clock-governed functionary -was missing something indeed must be jjolng wrong. Present! the order! ennie running back. "Sergt.

Not a bridge remained along the Platte. Not a ford was fordablc within two days' march of either Kmory or l'riyne Not n courier crossed the llnv littler, going either way, until the flood went down, and then It transpired that a tide In the utTnlts of men had also tunic), and that theie was trouble uhend for some who hnd thought to And plain sailing. For two days w ateliers along the lower Hon Klder dragged out upon the shallows the bodies of homes that once upon a time might have borne the "U. S." brand, but were not girthed with cavalry saddles now. Nor were there lucking other bodies to prove that the victims of the sudden storm were not Uncle Sam's men. much lis two. at least, of the drowned hnd been wanted by the federal authorities but H, week before. What the denlens of Gate City and Port llniorj dreaded and expected to hear was that Dean nnd Ills little pnrt had been enught in the trap. Hut, living or dead, not n sign of them remained nloug the storm-swept ravine. What most peo ple of Ante City and Fort Kmory could not uudqrstniMl was the evi dence that a big gang of horse thieves, desperadoes and renegades had sud denly appeared nbout the new town, hnd spurred away northwnrd in tho night, had kept the Krayne road till they reached the Ilov Klder, riding hard long after sunup, and there, re enforced, they hnd gone westward to the Sweetwntcr trail, and. old fron tiersmen thoilghthe,v were, had been caught in the whirl of water at ("an on Springs, losing two of their num ber nnd nt least n dozen of their horses. What could have lured them into that gloomy rift nt such a time? What inspiration hnd led Dean out of it? Singly, or in HttlcfsqutuH many of them nfoot, bedraggled, silent, cha grined, the "outfit" described by Trooper Care had slunk away from the neighborhood of the l!o Klder ns soon ns the stoim subsided. Solemnly, an betltted soldiers, silent and alert despite their dripping accoutrements, the little detachment of cavalry had pushed ahead, tiding by compass over the di cached uplands, steering for the Sweetwater, bate In the after noon the skies had cleared, the sun came out and they camped lu n bunch of cottonwoods on the old Casper trail and slept the sleep of the just nnd the weary. Knrly next day they hastened on, reaching tin usually shallow stream, with Devil's Gate only a few miles awny, before the setting of a second sun. Here they feasted nnd rested well, and before the dawn was fairly red on the third day out from Kmory they were breasting the turbid waters and by noon had left tlie valley fur to the south and were well out toward the Hlg Horn coun try, where it behooved them to look warily ahead, for from every ridge, though far to tlie wesfof their prob able raiding eround. Dean and his men could eipect to encounter scout ing parties of tlie Indians at any mo ment, and one false step meant death. The third night passed without alarm, though every eye and ear was strained. The morning of the fourth da dawned and the sun soon tinged the mist mountain tops to the frr north, and Dean saw before him an open roll ing countr.x, over which it would be im possible to match without attracting Indian e;,es, If Indian ces there were within 20 miles. And with proper cuu- tion he ordcieil Ills men to keep In con cealment, horses grazing under guard In a deep depression near ii stream, men dozing sound! b turns until tlie twi light came, and then tlie stars their night lights for a long, long march. Dawn of the llfth da found them hud dled In u deep ravine of the southern foothills, with Wan lor Gap not 30 miles nxxii, and now, indeed, was prudence necessar, for the faint light showed the fresh pi hits of Innumerable pony hoofs on ever side. The were close on Mnclipealnta's lurking braves. Which would see the other flrst' It must have been somewhere toward five o'clock in the afternoon thnt Dean, searching with hlh lleld-glass the sun lit slopes- far out to the cast, heard the voice of his sergeant close at hand and turned to answer. I'p to this moment, be.vond the pon.v tracks, not n sign hnd they seen of hostile Indians, but the bulla I o that had appeared in scattered herds along their line of march were sh and scar, nnd old hnndb said that t hut meant the had recently been hunted haul. Moreover, thlb was not a section favoird of the buffalo. Theie xxas much alkali and sage brush along their Hall, and onl lieie nnd therein sennty patches an,v of tlie rich, nutri tious bunch glass which the roving ani mals so eagerly tought, Tlie day had been hot and almost cloudless. The shimmer of licnt along the In lollof the laud to the south had often ba filed their blinking e,vcs. Hut now tlie sun wns well to the west, and the lefractlon seemed diminishing, nnd away over to tlie inn thens dull-colored cloud seemed slowl rising be oud the ridges. It was this that Sergt. Hruce wns study ing when he murmured to his oung commander: "I think that means a big herd on tlie run, sir, and If so Indians staited them." One or two troopeis, dozing elae nt hand, sprawled full length upon the. ground, with their faces biiiicd in, or hidden li their hlue-slecxid aims, slowl lolled oxer nnd came crouching up alongside. Dean diopped his glasses and peered in the direction indicated by his comrade of humbler rank. Dust cloud it wns be.vond a doubt, nnd alone poep through the binocular proved thai it was slowly sailing across the horizon in n northerly direction. Did that mean that tlie red hunters were drlv ing the great quarry toward tlr.'vlllag of the Sioux, or that the young men wcreoutln force, and with the full com plement of squnvvs and ponies were slaughtering on the run? If the for mer, then Dean and his party would be wise to turn eastward and crosi ths trail of the chnsc. If the latter they would stand better chance, of slipping through to the Gap by pushing north wnrd, deeper In among the pine-crested heights. llehlnd the vvntthers, well down in the ravine, tlie horses were placidly nibbling at the scant herbage, or lally sprawling In the snn, encli nuimnt se curely hoppled, and nil carefully guard ed by the single trooper, whose own mount, rendy saddled, circled within the limits of the stout lariat, looped about his master's wiist. AH spoke of caution, of Ilvcl sense of danger und i esponslbtlit , for they of the little de tachment wete picked men, who had ridden tlie vvnrpnth too longnot to real ize that there was no such thing as trusting to luck in the heart of the In dian country, especially when Mnch pealota with his Ogallalln braves was out for business. 'I lie cautious move ments of the group along the bank had quickly been noted b the wakeful ones among the troopers, and presently the entire party, excepting only the herd guard, hnd crouched up alongside, and with the comradeship born of such perilous service, were now discussing the situation in low, confidential tones. For hnlf an hour they lay there, stud Ing the signs to the northeast. Tlx; dun-coloicd cloud hung low over the earth for a distance of severnl miles. The herd wns evidently one of unusual size even forthose days when the buffalo swarmed In countless thou sands, and finally the sergeant spoke again. "It's a big hunt, lieutenant. What ever may lie going on about the Gap they've found time to send out oung men enough to round up most of the buffalo north of tlie Pintle nnd drive them In tow aid the mountains. It'a combining pleasure with business. They don't feel strong enough in num ber, perhaps, to muke another nt tempt on troops armed with breechloaders, so while they re waiting until ther reen forcements come, or their own breech loaders, they nre herding the buffalo xv here they can get them when they w ant them later on. We are In big luck that no stragglers a.re nnyvv here around us; if they were it wouldn't take such fellows long to spy us out." Denn swept the ridge line with hla glass. No sign of life nenrer than that far-away, betraying dust cloud. No symptom of danger anywhere within their ken. lie was thinking nt the mo ment of that precious package In hit addle-bags and the colonel's word im pressing hltn with the sense of responsi bility the night they parted at Fort Emory. To-morrow, by sunrise, if for tune favored him, he could turn it over to the commanding officer at the new tockade, and then if the Indians were not gathered In force about the post and actually hostile, he could slip out oaIn nt night nnd make swift dash for the Platte and the homeward way, and then within tlie week rejoin his sister at Fort Kmory his sister and "Pap poose," Never before had the Indian pet name carried such significance as now. Night and day those soft, dark eyes that beautiful face- haunted his thoughts nnd tilled his young heart with new nnd passionate longing. It was hard to have to leave the mint her presence ninde enchanted ground. Nothing but the spur of duty, the thrill of soldier achievement and stirring venture could have reconciled hi in to that unwelcome order. In one week now, if fortune favored and heaven spared, lie could hope to look again into the ex es that hnd so en chained him, but if there should inter pose the sterner lot of the frontier, If theSiou should learn of his presence, he who hnd thwarted HurnlngStnrnnd tlie brothers of poor blzette In their schemes of v cngennce, he at w hose door the Ogallallas must by tills time have laid tlie death of one of their foremost braves, then Indeed would there be no hope of getting back without a battle loyal. Theie was only one chance of safety that the Indians should i;ot discover their presence. If the dldand realized who the Intruders xxeie, Jessie Dean might look In vain for her broth er's return. Pappoose would never hear the loxe xvoids that, trembling on his lips the night he left her, hail been poured out only to that unresponsive picture. Two ways there were In xxlilcli the Indians could know of his presence. One by being Informed through some half-breed spy, lurking about Frnyne; but then who would be dastard enough to send such vxoid? The other by being seen nnd recognized by some of tlie Ognllallu band, and thus far he be lieved they had come undetected, and It vns now after five o'clock after Ave o'clock and nil was well. In a few hours they could again lie on their stnrllt wn , With the morrow they should be safely within the gutca of the nexv stockade at Warrior Gup. Turning with hope nnd relief In his face to speak to Sergt. Hruce, who lay thero at Ills elbow, he saw the blue-sleexed arm stretching fui th In warning to lie low, and with grtxe eyes the xeteran xvns gnzlng straight at a little butte that rose from the rolling surface not moie than half a mile nxvny to the .southeast. "J.leutenniit," he vvhlspeied, "thero nto Indiana back of that hill at tills minute, and It isn't buffalo they're laying for " Dean was brnve. He hud fieen tried nnd his mettle wns nssured. nnd yet he felt the sudden chill that coursed Ills veins. "Iloxv can they lime seen us?" lie murmured. "May have struck our trail out to the southwest," said Hruce, slowly, "or they may have been told of our coming and are stalking us. They've Don I marry. Almost everylxxly remembers the cele brated advice of the London Punch, "To those about to marry, Don'." There Is in that advice tlie expression of the feeling of many a mother who says, " I none my unuguicr will never marry and suffer as I have." In ninety -eight coses in every hun dred there s no need for this suf fering. Doctor Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures the womanly dis eases which cause wifely misery.

For n moment only the breathing of the little party could be heard. All eyes were fled upon the distnnt mound. At last Denn spoke again. "When did ou see them first nnd how man nrc there?" "Near ten minutes ngo. I snw something fluttering swift along the sl-y line just beyond that divide to the Routh. It skimmed like n bird, all but the quick bobbing up nnd down that made me sure there was a gal loping pony tim or it. Then another skimmed along. It was the hunch of fentlicrs and red flannel on their lam.es. mid my belief Is that they struck our trail back here somexxhere, and Hint there's on! a small party, and they don't know just who we nre and they want to find out." "You're right. Look!" was Dean's uddVn answer, for at the very in ntnnt there rode boldly, cnlmly into full view two Toung Indians, who with cool deliberation came jogging on at gentle speed, straight townrd the concenled bivouac of tlie troopers. Instantly Hruce reached for his car bine, and two or three of the men went sliding- or crouching backward down the slope as though in quest of their arms. Full eight hundred yards away were the riders at the moment, coming side by sldo In nppnrent un concern. "Don't," muttered Dean, with hnnd outstretched, "They look anything but hostile." "That's when they're most likely to be full of hell, sir," was the prompt answer. "See! others nrc watching behind thnt knoll," and Indeed ns Hruce declnred, n fenther-decked head or two could be detected through the glass, peering over the summit. "Warn them to hnlt, then," cried Dean. "Hut xve cannot fire unless they provoke it." Hruce was on his feet in a second. Standing erect and facing strnight to- ?

"Unit them again. Couroy, you go with Sergt. Hruce." Eagerly a xouna; trooper, carbine in band, sprang up and atood by the ser geant's side as the latter repeated his warning signal. Obedlentl, yet not too promptly, showing evident desire to get where they could peer over the ravine nnd count the number of white men and horses, the Indians again drew rein, this time bnrel Kfl arils axvay. Then Hruce and Conrov, hold ing up their emptied hand, strode for ward along the grass slope, making the further sign: "Dismount."
