(Continued. As we pulieu ouiseives tip Into th fort of the long naked branch w Up We Clambered, the Girl Catching Her Breath InJTerror. heard a. voice and saw a woman lean ing over the rail of the upier deck. I recognized Maudy McGovern. Whut you all doin" down there?" she called. "Wait a minute: I'm oomln' too." A ' moment later ' she appeared at the opening cf the lower deck and craned 6ut her long neck. I then saw at her side the figure of a young woman, her hair fallen from its coils, her feet bare, her body wrapped apparently only in some light silken dressing to be thrown ; above her night wear. "Here, you,"' called out Mandy Mc Govern; "git hold of the end of this rope." . ' She tossed to me the end of the gang . plank rope, by which the sliding stage was drawn out and in at the boat landings. I caught this and passed it over a projection on the snag. The gangplank, confined by , the rjpe, swung in the current alongside the suag. but it seemed useless to un dertake to restore it to its position. The girl cowered against the side of the deck opening. "Wait," 1 called to her, and, slipping down into the water again. I waded as close as 1 could to the door, the water then catching me -close to the shoulders. "Jump!" I ordered, holding out my .anus. ". "I can't; I'm afraid." she said. "Do as I tell your" I roared. "Jump at once!" As 1 caught her weight with my arms under hers she was for the moment almost immersed, but I stag gered backward and managed to hold my footing till An berry's arms reached us from the snag, up which we clam bered, the girl dripping wet and catch ing her breath in terror. We had traveled perhaps three-quarters of a mile when I noticed the dim loom of trees on our side of the stream and saw that we were ap proaching a long point which ran out below us. This should have been the deep side of the river, but no one can account for the vagaries of the Missou ri. When we were within a hundred yards or so of the point we felt a long; shuddering scrape under us. and after a series of slips and jerks our old snag j came to anchor again, its roots-having once more laid hold upon a bar. It occurred to me that as I had been able to touch bottom on the other bar I ;might do so here. I crawled back along ;the trunk of the snag to a place as Inear the roots as I could reach and, 'letting myself down gently, found that I could keep my footing on the -sand. Liittle by little I edged up the stream and found that the water shoaled to ward the heap of driftwood. It drop ped off, I know not how deep, between the edge of the bar and the piled drift; but, standing no more than waist deep, I could reach the outer limbs of the drift and saw that they would support my weight. After that I waded back to the snag carefully and once more ordered the young woman to come to me. ' She came back along the naked and .'slippery trunk of the snag, pulling her self along by her hands, her bare feet and limbs deep in the water alongside. I could hear the sob of her intaken breath and saw that she trembled in fright, and. more dead than alive, it teemed to me, she fell once more into O THE WAY OF A MAN By Emerson Hough Copyright, 1907. by tbe Outing Publishing Company my arms. I felt her grasp tighten about my neck and her firm body crowd against me as we both sank down for an instant. Then I caught my feet and straightened and was real ly the steadier for the added weight, as any one knows who has waded in fast water. "Get up. Auberry." I said to him as he approached and motioned to the long, overhanging branches from the driftwood. He swung up. breaking off the more insecure boughs, and was of the belief that we could get across in that way. As he reached down I awung the young woman up to him. and she clambered on as best she could. Thus. I scarce know how, we all managed to reach the solid drift and so presently found ourselves ashore on a narrow sandy beach hedged on the back by a heavy growth of willows. "Now then, you men," ordered Mandy McGovern. "get some wood out and start a fire right away. This here girl is shaking the teeth plumb out'n her head." Mandy drew forth two flasks, each stoppered with a bit of corncob. The one held sulphur mafches. thus kept quite dry. and this she passed to me. The other she handed to the young woman. "Here," snid she. "take a drink of that. It'll do you good." I beard the girl gasp and choke as She obeyed this injunction, and then Mandy applied the bottle gurglingly to her own lips. Presently we had a roaring blaze started, m and Mandy, seating herself comfortably upon a log and producing a corncob pipe and a quantity of nat ural leaf tobacco, proceeded to enjoy herself in her own fashion. "This here's all right." she remarked. "We might be a heap worse off'n we air." I could not help pitying the young woman who crouched near her at the fireside, still shivering. She seemed so young and helpless and so out of place in such surroundings. The firelight showed in silhouette the outlines of her face. It seemed to me I had never seen one more beautiful. Perhaps she felt my gaze, for presently she turned nd said: "Indeed it might be worse. Ji thank you so much. It was very brave of you." We had waited perhaps not over an hour, undecided what to do, when Au berry raised a hand. "Listen," he said. "There's a boat coming." and presently we all heard the splash of oars. Our fire had been seen by one of the boats of the Itiver Belle, out (lick ing up such stragglers as could be found. So our little bivouac on the beach came to an end. I did not get tbe name of the girl I had seen there in the firelight. What did remain and that not wholly to my pleasure, so distinct it seemed was the picture of her high bred profile, shown in chiaroscuro at the fireside, the line of her chin and neck, the tumbled masses of her hair. These were things I did not care to remember, ajid I hat ed myself as a soft hearted fool, .see ing that I did so. "Son." said old Auberry to me after a time as we trudged along up the bank, stumbling over roots and braided grasses, "that was a almighty fine look in gnl we bnm.r along with as there." "I didn't notice." said I. "No." said Auberry solemnly. "I no tlced you dian't take no notice." "I suppose you're married," I sug gested. "Some," said Auberry, chuckling. "In fact, a good deal, I reckon. My present woman's a Shoshone we're Uvin" up Horse creek, below Laramie. Them Shosbones make about the best dressers of 'em all." "I don't quite understand" "I meant hides. They can make the best buckskin of any tribe I know." He walked on ahead in tbe dark for some time before he added irrelevantly. "Well, after all. in Fome ways women is women, my son. and men is men. that bein' the way this world is made just at these hero present times. As I was sayin. that's a powerfuf nice lookln' gal." It seemed to me- that I saw gazing down directly at me one cold, bright, reproving star, staring straight into my soul and accusing me of bein.i nothing more than a savage, nothing better than a man. CHAPTER VIII. Her Infinite Variety. Jl T our little viilnge-on the follow- ing morning Auberry and I I learned that the Kiver Belle would lie up indefinitely for repairs and that at least one, perhaps several days would elapse before sh resumed her journey up stream. CM; plans were changed again, for a youn army officer came down from that po with the information that Colon Meriwether had been ordered out f he posts up the I'latte river, hiifl bin cone for three weeks, and no one cot: ell what time he would return. T Indians were reported very bad alo he Platte- Possibly Colonel Me wether might be back at Leavenwor within the week, possibly not for month or more. This was despera news for me. for I knew that I ougi to be starting home at that very tim I wrote home once more, stating thu I was not starting east, but going stii farther west. Auberry, as it chanced, fell in wit,, a party bound for Denvoe. five -non THE Who bad two wagons, n heavy Conestd ga freight wagon or prairie schooner, and a lighter vehicle without a cover. We arranged with these men and their cook as to our share in the mess box and so threw in our dunnage with theirs. Auberry and I purchasing us a good horse' apiece. By noon of the next day we were on our way west ward. At last we approached the valley of the Platte. We were coming now in deed into the great plains, of which I had heard all my youth. A new at mosphere seemed to invest the world. The talk of my companions was of things new and wild and strange to me. All my old life seemed to be slip ping back of me. into a far oblivion. Many things became more clear to me as I rode and reflected. In some way, I know not how, it seemed to me that I was growing older. We had been out more than two weeks when finally we reached the great valley along which lay the west ern highway of the old Oregon trail, now worn deep and dusty by countless wheels. We pushed up the main trail of the Platte but a short distance that night. We looked forward to meeting hu man faces with some pleasure. But an hour or so later as we rode on I saw Auberry pull up his horse, with a strange tightening of his lips. "Boys," said he, "there's where it was." His pointing finger showed nothing more than a low line of ruins, bits of bro ken fencing, a heap of half charred timbers. . "They've been here." said Auberry grimly. "Who'd have thought the i Sioux would be this far east?" j We rode up to the station, guessing what we would see. Five dead horses lay near by. a part of the stage stock kept there. We kept our eyes as long as we could from what we know must next be seen the bodies of the agent and his two stablemen, mutilated and half consumed, under the burned out , timbers. I saw the bodies, for the lower limbs of all three had been dismembered and cast in a heap near where the bodies of the horses lay. j The third day passed until tbe sun sank-toward the sand dunes and cast a long path of light e cross the rippling shallows among the sand bars of the Platte. But still we saw no signs of ( newcomers. Evening was approach-j ing when we heard the sound of a dls- tant shot and saw our horse guard, running toward the camp. As he np- proached he pointed, and we saw a faint cloHd of dust coming toward es. The travelers were horsemen, perhaps thirty or forty in all. Following tbem came the dust whitened top of an ar my ambulance and several camp wag ons. We hesitated no longer and quickly mounting our horses rode full speed toward them. They were a seasoned lot of Har ney's frontier fighters, grimed and grizzled, their hats, boots and clothing gray with dust, but their weapons bright. Their , leader approached me when I rode up. "Lieutenant Belknap!" I exclaimed. "Do y.ou remember meeting me down at Jefferson?" "Why, Mr. Cowles, how on earth did you get here? Of course I remem ber you." "Yes, but how did you get here your self? You were not on my boat." "Orders to take this detachment out to Laramie." he said, "and meet Colo nel Meriwether there." "He'll not lie back? I was hoping to meet him coming east." "No." said Belknap: "you'll have to go on with us if you wish to see him. I'm afraid the Sioux are bad on be yond." He turned toward the am bulance, anf 1 glanced that way. There stood near it a tall, angular fig are. head enshrouded in an enormous sun bonnet. "Why, that's my friend, Mandy Mc Govern, said I. At that moment, descending at the rear of the ambulance, I saw the other one. It was a yonng woman who left the step of the ambulance and stood for a moment shading her eyes with her hand and looking out over the shim mering expanse of the broad river. All at once tbe entire landscape was changed. It was not the desert, but civilization, which swept about us. A transfiguration had been wrought by one figure, fair to look upon. Tbe swift versatility of my soul was upon the point of calling this as fine a fig ure of young womanhood as I had ever seen. I was about to ask some questions of Belknap when all at once I saw "Why, that's my friend, Mandy Mc Govern." something that utterly changed my pleasant frame of mind. The tall fig ure of a man came from beyond the line of wagons a man clad in weli fitting tweeds cut for riding. I im agine it was the same swift male jeal ousy that affected both Belknap and myself as. we saw Gordon Orme. "Yes; there is your friend, the Eng lishman," said Belknap rather bitterly. "I meet him everywhere," I answer- FARMER: FEBRUARY 23, ed. "Tiie iui.1,4 i.- simply uncanny. What is he doing out here?" "W e are taking him out to Laramie with us. He has letters to Colonel Meriwether, it seems. Cowles, what do you know about that man?" "Nothing," Bald I, "except that he purports to come from the English army." "He's prowling about every military post he can get into." "With a special reference to army officers born in the south?" I looked Belknap in the eye. "There's something in that, he re plied. "I don't like the. look of it. These are good times for every man to attend to his own business." A moment later I ran across my for mer friend. Mandy McGovern. In her surprise she stopped chewing tobacco. "Well. I dee-clare to gracious," she began, "if here ain't the man I met on the boat! Ilow'd you git away out here ahead of us? Have you saw airy buffeler? I'm gettin plumb wolfish fer something to shoot at." What 1 was doing at that precise mo ment, as I must confess, was taking a half unconscious look once more to ward the tail of the ambulance, where Orme and .the young woman stood chatting But it was at this time that Orme came forward. "By Jove," he said, "here yon are again! Am I your shadow, Mr. Cowles. or are you mine? It is really singular how we meet. I'm awfully glad to meet you," although I don't in the least see how you've managed to get here ahead of us." ' I explained to him the changes of my plans that had been brought about by the accident to the River Belle. 'Lieutenant Belknap tells me that you j are going through to Laramie with j him," I added. "As it chances, we have the same errand. It is my pur pose also to call on Colonel Meriweth er there in case we do not meet him coming down." "How extraordinary! Then we'll be fellow travelers for a time and, I hope, have a little sport together. Fine young fellow, Belknap. You'll eat at our mess tonight, of course. That's our fire just over there, and I'm think ing the cook is nearly ready. There comes Belknap now." Tbe confusion of these varied meet ings had kept me from learning the identity of the late passenger of the ambulance. I presume both Orme and Belknap supposed that the young lady end I had met lefore we took our piaces on the ground at the edge of the blanket which served as . a table. I sought a glance at her face, which the next instant was hid by the rim of her hat as she looked down, removing her long gloves. At least I saw her hands small bands, sun browned now. On one finger was a plain gold ring with a peculiar netting the figure of a rose carved deep Into the gold. "After all," thought I to myself, there are some things which cannot be duplicated, among these hair like this, a profile like this, a figure like this." I gazed In wonder, then in cer tainty. No; there was no escaping the con elusion. This was not another girl bat the same girl seen again. ' Belknap caught tbe slight restrain as thegirl and 1 both raised our eyes "Oh, I say, why what in the world Mr.-Cowles, didn't you that is, haven't you" "No," said I, "I haven't and didn't, I think. But I think also" The girl's face was a trifle flushed, but her eyes were merry. "Yes," said she, "I think Mr. Cowles and I have met once before." She slightly empha sized the word "once," as I noticed. (To Be Continued.) TIIE SOUND SLEEP OF GOOD HEALTH Is not for those suffering from kid ney ailments and irregularities.
