Bronied with a glow from its glory
As free a* the air it is heaven to inhale,
Aad strnng as the steeds of the prairie gale
Lord of hi* castle and brood domain,
The herd hi* vassalu, the Dock hi* train.
And rich ia the cuia his grnaariei1 hoard:
He sits at the head "I his bountiful board.
Aad laugh* at the crowded world afar,
Bulling with ceaseless commercial war.
Behold him at morn !—his polished plow
Traces dark liae* with hi* silver prow,
Writing the verse in alluvial mou! 1
The summer shall print in letters of gold,
And set to the trill of the oriole's tune,
Iiehold him at reat in the languid noon,
Stretched oa the grass and cooled by the

Behold him at eve :—tha evening hi* own,
Home-joy. are his that to few are known
The ru.fet is brought from his last year's
•fore
His fruity-faced children play on the fl'.or,
And hi* wife, her cheek like orchard bloom.
Is tha crown, the queen, of the cheerful room.
That mine of riches— that farmer's wife
How buay aad happy aad proud her lire
From her paac ahe "pan* oat" her rolla of
gold,
And her egg* are all ne*t egg* of wealth an
told:
It tries not her patience to y out her lard.
And her lot, like her bread, ia nevir hard
She knits her iteekiogs, but never her
brow*,—
Give* the fowls a dressing but not her spoue.
Oh, busy and happy and proud the life
The farmers life, and the farmer's wife.
I* the picture too fair too rosy its glory
Tell a*, thou husbandman, John or Joe!
What are thy musings the livelong day,
Or home returned in the twilight gray
What honest pride, what bliss of health,—
Of peace, conteat, what oonscious wealth
What couverse with Nature what hidden
lore,
Wiser than book*, i* it thine to explore
Wh.'t acience untaught, in schools nnbeard,
Of soil and plant, or of beast and bird
John—who is one of the rarer kind,
Banny ia heart and searching of mind,
Replies in few words: "Ah, well do I kaow
Life's flowers and briers commingling grow,
And man may pluck, if be so desires.
The flowers alone, or only the briers.
One thorn there ia—I feel it in truth—
The lack of aatudious habit iu youth."
Thus worthy John. Is be right—is it (o
Come, give us thy Bind, thou frequent Joe

And arter his chores a man is dead it

Some milk remaiaing for poetry'* tea.

When he vends his milk by the piat or quart

Would there were time the life to trace
Of one, complete, who leaves this place
Tv low his knowledge with hi* iced,
Aad reap far more than mortal meed.
What if Lis corn be not increased
He is a mind—a man—at least,—
Not a machiae like that he ridee,
Not like the plodding horse he guides.
He reads ia plant aaa soil and aua
Wonders undreamed l.y Solomon.
Or might we track his after coarse
Who ponder* here the laws of Force.
He see* in every breath of steam
Shot from yon mill, a cloudy stream,
A mammoth power diaiolved in air.
He builds a township laundry there.
And free* the world—it* haples* wife—
From bondage to the plague of life.

When woman takes her proud B. S.a

Shall she—the duck—be but a quack

CHAPTER I.
A MFE GI.ORIOC8LT STAKED 1
Towards the close of a beautiful dav in
June, 1867, a man and woman, mounted up
•u fleet horses, came galloping over one of
tbe great plains of the West, and drew rein
in the .sba e of a lump of cotton-woods up
on tbe banlruf a beautiful river. Tfcey bad
ridden far and rapidly. Their steeds were
panting, ariS covered with sweat and fonm.
We muV^ give tbe botaes a breathing
•pell,' said tl.- former, tlipping to tbe grouud:
and hi* companion nodded a gracefalasaent,
aa she followed hi* example.
T_c couple were evidently father and
daughter.
The man was in the prime of lile, hale and
hearty, with a large frame, which was sin
ewy ami allilitic, without ceasing to be refi*
aed ai.d prepossessing. He bad the keen,
shrewd look peculiar to the advance-guards of
civilization, and there was an honest, frank
expression on his suu-browued face that prr
claimed his integrity and courage.
In her way, liis daughter was equally pic*
turesqne and attractive.
In the early flush of womanhood, with a
pt re, aweet, uuJ tender face, with eye* dark
ly giuwirg, with coral-tinted li|s, and cheeks
Bi.illy flushed with tbe hue of the io«e, with
auibir curls floating behind her, she *raa as
graceful as a gaaelTe, as light-hearted as a
bird, as lovely as a flower, and as spirited as
an untamed antelope.
Tbe stream by which the couple had halt
ed was Wood river, a branch of the Platte,
in Nebraaka, at a pjiut fifty miles northwest
of Furl Kearney.
Are y.u tirn], Miriam asked the hun
ter, George Dane, with fatherly solicitude.
Tired, father V rejoined the maiden, with
a happy laugh. Oh, no. How could I be
tired after a day like this 7 Every icinata

Tbe father smiled underataadiugly, with a
look lull oi the loudest affection.
I can guess the .ause of your lightness
ofheart,' .said be, smilingly. The return,
now daily expected, of a certain Hubert
Kai le, from the mines of Idaho, may accoutit,
I suspect, for yonr present gladness.'
A heightened color appeared ou Miriam's
face, for the nauie meiiti^ned was that of her
lover. She answered the glance* of her fa

hii entire sympathy with her, ami said
True, father, tnv heart has been unusu

Mr. Dane did not reply. He was looking,
with kiudling eyea, over the fair flower-dot
ted plain and his next remark ehowed how
wi lely his thoughts had straved.
I wonder what mother has bee* doing
without us all day, Miriam. She mast be
lonely, with no oae to (peak to or ihare her
meals. I shouldn't wouder if we eotild aee
our home from this point,' and his face light
ed up with a soulful glow. Onr cottage is
not more than seven mile* distant let me

He drew frem his coat a pocket-glass, ad
jBated it to his sight, pointing it in a north
erly direction, nod gaaed through it long aud
earnestly, towards lua s»»oh« wp» Carrey's
Purs.
Yea, I se* it,' ^e said, at laat,withalong,
deep, and joyful inspiration, as if the sight
refreshed him in every nerve. There is
our
cottage, a* plain a* day. I can even see the
vines you planted before tbe windows, Miri

uo-Jei the big elm, sits your mother, busy at
her :ewing. Bleaa her! She does not 'im
agine we are looking at her. Look, Miri
am.'
He yielded tbe instrument to his daught
ter, who obeyed hi* injunction, her lovely
face glowing with smiles as she regarded the
distant bome-acene.
Dear mother!' she murmured. It is a
treat to be able to sit out under the trees
without tear of molestation. There are no
hostile Indians hereabouts now—are there,
father
'No. Red Knife, as yun have already
heard, was killed yesterday by a settler, and
his band has retreated toward the mountains.
1 will confess, Miriam, that during all the
time we have been iu the West, I have not
felt so ligbt-bearted and care-free as since
we received news of lied Knife's death. You
have just seen bow this joy bubbles over in
me. Ked Knife was a demon, rather than a
savage.'
Miriam shuddered, and her features even
paled at the memory of the Indian men*
tioaed.
He never spared a pale face,' she said,
striving to speak calmly. Desolation and
cruelty marked bis path. For mora tban

CHAPTER II.
A craiocs axb startuxg htstbst!
Skirting tbe Black Hills, forty miles west
of Fort Lartr.ie, a party of horsemen were
riding eastward.
They had left Fort Bridger eight days be
fore, taking the route of tbe North Platte,
and were now following the Oregon emi
grant road, among those long ridges, drv
beds of rivers, and sterile plains, b, whicb
the region of the Black Hills is distin
guished.
Tbe bulk of the party coasistad of ten
cavalrymen, under a lieuteaant, who were
returning to Fort Laramie, their post of
duty. They weie well mounted and had
several led horses loaded with their pro
via
ions and apptiteuancea of travel.
The balauce of the party comprised time
civilians, who had aeiaad the oppartanity ui
crossing tbe mountains under military es
cort. Two oi these were emigrants who
had settled near Fort Bridger, but who had
tired of the great soliuu^, or been fright
ened by the Indians, aad ware now return
ing eastward in search of homee nearer the
haunts of civQizatioa.
The third civiliaa was Hubert Earle, the
lover of Miriam Daaa, the aettler's daughter,
whom wa have just left ia such deadly per
il.
He was a splendid speeimea of Amerieaa
manhood, magnifioeatly ^formed, bread houl
dered, deep-chested, a* vigorous as aa ath

steed, with the grace and eaaa af Cen
taur.
At tbe mosaeat of his ia
trod action to tbe
reader, be was riding in the rear of tbe lit
tle train, buay with his own reiectioas,
which wan evidently as bright as tbe morn
ing itself—tha forenoon preceding tbe events
we have recorded.
Tbe dear little soul 1°' be atarmured
aloud. Where is she now?"
His eyes darkened with tender sweetness,
his lips quivered with the ineffable
love that flooded bis being with a happiness
akin to pain. He pictured their meeting,
the pretty home tliev would share together
the years tbey would spend ia each other's
society, tbe tender mutual love aad care
that would bless all their comiag days.
He had left her a poor ad vonturar, to aeek
his fortune amoag the the mines Idaho.
He was returning to her a son thaa mod
erately rich man, with bills of exchaage ia
his cb~mioa money-lelt of suHicteat value
to sapport them both ia hutuy aa bag as
they might live.
It was aot to be wondered at that bis
thoughts wen pleasant.
Suddenly he was aroused from his trance
like silence, by cries of •t-tjgfct frowj his
nanioaa, aad by the fact that they bad
checked their speed.
Looking around bim quickly, be beheld
the causae af the wtuaal excitement. To
tbe soutward, at ao great distance, a small
herd of buffaloes waa graaiag laaily,
iagly not at all alarmed by lha near pres
euce of a formidable enersy.
Tha wind was blowing fmm them, tbe
race wen fresh, a«i as be tha tempting

"Wbat do say to an hour's sport, Mr.
Sana?" shontea the lieutenant, as he bore
down upon his friend, for Hubert was a de
elded mvorite with every member of tbu
party.
I think it would be a downright sham* to
turn our barks on such spleudid game,''
was tbe qaiek response. Who could eat a
*»aar of salt pork, with those fat buflaktaa

Tbe lieutenant smiled, glanced up aod
do

faces of bis toon, and resolved to carry out
bis aera aod tbe general desira.
At word of xinaiaad from him, tbo par­

It is noon, anA we'll have dinner,' said
the lieutenant, observing thai the baggage
animals with their drivers were approaching.
Kindle a fire, boy», and we'll have steako
aud roasts in abundance.'
While tbi.4 ordea was being carried into
effect, Habert and several others engaged in
surveying the scene.
'A lorely and desolate spot,' said Hubert,
thoughtfully. It looks as if mao had
sever before visited it.'
And no wonder,' returned Brydges,
'since it's five miles off tbe route. WTial
could any man want here, nuless he might
be in pursuit of buffaloes?'
There being no answer to tbi* question,
Huburt proceeded to find an excellent gra
zing spot for bis horse, tethered him, and
flung himself on the ground in the shadow
of the hill. Tbe lieutenant and
a
the men followed bis example.
Plenty of low bushes were found dry
enough to burn, and several fires were soon
kindled. The eboiest portions of the buffa^
loes were readily prepared for cooking,
and it was not long before the ordor ofburn
ingflesh was diffused on the air four or five
hnngry soldiers serving as cooks.
It was a wild icnic scene on those lonely
wilds, and every man there enjoyed it with
true gipsy zest. .*
Suddenly a shout'from Jne of the men
who were strolling around, arrested the
atten-
O i of the others.
•Hallo, boys!' he tried. 'I'm blest if here
isn't a cave in tbe hill I Come, see tbe bole
under these bashes. Yoa never saw auytbing
hidden neater in your lives.'
Jones thinks nobody ever saw a cave be-1
fore," said ore cf the lum gers. *Foraiy|
part, I think more of something to eat, tban
of a bole in tbe ground.'
Thi ntiment was echoed by the others,
bnt ihe inquiiitive cave di-'c.vercr, nothing
daunted, approohed the fir -. look from it a
torch, returned to the butte, under the
a dark aperture in the face of the rock,
and disappeared within it, his light giving
back a yellow glare for a sccond after be
hal ceased to be seen.
Th* camp revelry went on, the cooking
progressed, tbe minute* passed, and Jones
aid not reaprear.
If that fellow had found a gold mine in
ttere he wouldn't call one of us,' growled
the lounger who had before spoken. I wou
der what Joue* hat found. III jest take a
look, as dinner isn't ready.'
He arose lazily, abstracted a stick of bar
sing wood for a torch, preceded to the cav
ern entrance, and disappeared from view,
'Probadly,' said Hubert, there's a large
eavern under that kill. If we had time, it
might pay to explore it. Under tbe present
circumstances, I aa like Brown, and preter
my dinner to scientific explorations.'
The meal aeemed to be nearly ready, for
the rattling of Ha cup* aad dshesbegaa'to be
heard the lieutenant's small eamp-chest
waa unpacked, aad the couks shouted to the
strollers to come to dianer.
'Han Jones and Brown same backf

position, and glanced towards tbe caveni.
Tbe men replied in the negative.

afford to waste time here.'
King a fine young soldier, took a torch,
and entered the cave.
Tbe dinner was dealt out—hot *arorv
s'eaks and roasts—the coffee measured, aud
the meal comiueuced, but none of the mea
who had entered the care made their ap
pearance!
•How sngular!' ejaculated Brydges, test
tly and impatiently, Waht can keep those
men? Kiug has been gooe ten minutes.
Here, Sergeant Halsey hurry those men upl
The sergeant, a brown, strong man of
middle age, hesitated, aad ventured to stam

'Nonsense, Sergeant!' interrupted the
lieutenant frowning. I give you five min«
utes to bring those men back. Go!'
The sergeant's face paled, but without an
other word, be took up a torch and entered
the cave, disappearing from the gase of his
friends.
The minutes passed, the lieutenant and
the mea ate their dinner asechanically,
awaiting anxiously the expected return, yet
none of tbe four came back.
Tbe words of the sergeant had made a
deep impression on the minds of his hearers
A guaeral gloom

men cast frequent and fearful glance* ia

Beecher says that the world si

of a news paper and, aa in a wa'eh,
the hands are seen are bat passirs
