When is the Time to Die?
I asked the glad a ad happy child, "Whcsc banda tverelillea with ?iowers, Whose ?ilvc ry laugh ran free and wild, Among t! v vine-wrcathod bowers; I crossed ii r sunny path and cried, "When is i he tim to die?"

In the year IS-, i undertook the perilous p mrney < d' crossing the plains. Om- company ".vas composed of nine persons: among rho number was Hil! Johnson, formeriv sj hunter and trap? per ol' tho. West. ' At tho close nf a beautiful da v in May, we found i mrse? v is seated around si blazing; csimp fire. upon tho banks of thc Littio Blue River, Missouri. Some of tho company had wpread a blanket upon tho grass,' mri weare busily engaged in n caine of car.!-, while myself and Bill Johnson were ?".gt-riv discussing ?in propriety ot ceediug ?tay. Wc soon came to rho ?' conclusion .bat we worth i spent! thc daylight Insuring, as our train was going to stop liare several days to re? cruit our animais. I cannot say. that t enjoyed a .-a.und sloop that night, because* J was anxious lied morning shouid arrive, for T expected rare sport on the corning day. Thu much wished-for morning came al ia a : and, after despatching a hasty breakfast, and informing our comrades thsit wo would return Ly sunset,, we <i. parted with our rides on our shoulders. For three hours v.v traveled in a Southerly direction from the camp witlioui .sot iug any game at all. and being somet? hut tired and disappoint? ed with our luck, we cbnc?uded to seek a sh??Jt r front tho burning sun. ind take a short rest. L'ollowing uji a. ravine a short clhtunee, wa came to a sink or hole, some twenty feet deep, the '?ides of which Mere of solid rock, and ahn.' st perpendicular. ' Carefully examining this curious snot, we at length discovered an excavation in th.i wall, ju s! large enough to admit a man with ease. This was soon accomplish? ed, and we found ourselves in an apartment about nine f. et square,, with walls of st.lid rock. Tltis we though! would al?br.l us thc desired shelter, and we wen-ju .' comfortably seated, when my companion sprang hastily to bis ita *. saying: '.(lo silent: 1 In-ara rushing in the grass, whic!: is probably .-ansi tl hy an elk t>r antelope. You sta; here,'' Anti, seizing ins ri;'..-, ia- stole cau? tiously down tin ravine. ile w.T s soon lost fo view among the shrubbery which skirted the ravine, leaving me alone to meditate on the probable cause of the- noise we had just hoard. But I was soon startled and surprised by seeing my compstnion running towards cht' eave, with anxiety arni alarm plainly depicted on his conn fcenance. "Indians! by thunder!" he exclaim? ed, as he ru hed into tin* eave. Then ho commenced blockading up the entrance with loose stones anti fragments of rock which h-.\ scattered around." Tibs awakened me to a sense of the danger we were in, as al that time the Pawnee Indians were known to be hostile to the whites, butchering all who fell into their hinds. To my in piiries of howmany there were of our enemies, my c >?n .*Th v are two, mounted on fleet horses, sinned with cities and Lows sind a.'.owss, and JH-.-I hideously painted. ' O sir enemies -v- re probably aware of j oivr place of refuge, for instead of j coming' up in front of the cave, they I crept cautiously round to thc edge of ! thc sink and stationed themselves o t ! of the reach of our rides, but so as to J command tho entvar.ee to our subterr I ranean retreat. Their persons were i out of our view, but by their shadows ' on thc opposite wall tve could note i their manouvres. : They evidently- thought there was j but one of us: bul they did not dc m I it prudent to make a. bold attack in front, forby so doing fhe\ would, ex? pose their persons to danger: there? fore, (hey chose the less dangerous plan of starving us to death, compell? ing ns to surrender, or shooting us if v.-.' attempted to escape. Thus, in a manner, we were completely in (he power of these savage.-, unless by some stratagem '.ve could manage to escape. But soon night s?: in,spread? ing her mantle of darkness over thc lam!, H nd melang our situation more dismal bom before. My companion took his station at tlc- entrance, ready to give 1 lie savages a Wann reception if they mada an attack. 1 was net capable of enduring auch hardships as my companion, therefore li" advised lil:: tos ii that repose 1 so much n c-led, while he watched tho mantcuvrcs of tho enemy. I laid down on iii" hard dour of the cavern, and soon fc'l asleep. I intended to relieve my companion in guarding about midnight: bm so soundly did I sleep, that the dawn ol' dav wes just breaking in tb . Mast when I awoke. Stiilat his post stood thc old hunter, without a visible trace of fatigue or suffering upon his countenance. With the exception of the lone s?riel; ot' the coyote in the <bsta.nl hills, all was silent "without, and [. thinking thc coast clear, was about lo pass out, when my companion, in a low whisper, said, '*j)o not move: now is our most dangerous time: but. I'll foil 'em yet." And immediately placing his hat ripon the muzzle Iiis gun, he slow? ly moved il through tho entrance. Tue Indians, who were on the look? out, perceiving it. mistook it for his head, and tired, two babs pierced the crown of his hat. Dropping it. he siiDposcd the indians would show tl .'..-.solves. Dut not so. My com? panion, seeing this scheine vms about tn fail, commenced making horrible groans, as mic inmortal agony. 'This the savages f lok h> !>.. a sure indica? tion thal 1 ?lei;-baie: Vd taken effect, ami. giving a yell o: triumph which d. mons mighl have envh d, they rush? ed ? >.:t ri full view. "Fire!" cried my companion, and tho next moment the sharp report of our rides run-through tho cavern, while; our enemies, giving a simultane? ous bound fell with a crashing sound upon the bottom of tho sin!;- cadi one a corps:*!
