Day was jn.-t hreaking when two
men held a whispc redcouncil in one
of the upper rooms. -i
"No fear of the water running short,"
'said Major Aim.-trong; "hut, even
upon half rations the food w ill he out
in fo'ur tlavs more."
And then we'll jn.-t go right at
them, and cut our way through or die
for it!" growled the old colom 1, with
it grim smile oifhte iron face, for, with
all his harshnes-s and injustice Colo
nel Annesley was "grit" to the hack-
hone.
"Ye mm n't say anything to them
ahout it, though," added he, with a
side glance at Mr. Ourrie, w ho, stand
ing in the further corner, was anxious
ly watching "the thin, worn face of his
sleeping wife.
At tliat moment a loud cheer from
helow starUdlhem hoth, ami the next
nton ent Isttil (the "Major's hoy," as
every one now called hint) hurst into
the room with a glow of unwonted ex
citement on his tlark face.

hope for us vet! A detachment of
Ingleez (Knglish) are coming uj) the
other hank of the river; if we can
semi word to them as they p:iss we are
saved!"
"How 'do you know?" asked the
major, eagerly.
"I heard the Sepoys say so, while I
was lying hid among the hushes yon
tier," answered the lath
"An ong the hushes yomh r ?" roar
the colond facing around. "Haveyoi
reaiiy neen in t tit midst ot those cut
throat villains listening to what they

for?"
"I dil it . for Sahih Armstrong's
siike," replied the lov nioudlv; "1
cause he was good tt me."
The Colonel turned hastily away to
hide the tlush of hot unmanly shame
that overspread hi- hard face; ami
Armstrong smiled -lightly a.- he heard
him mutter :
"I.v Jo'.c! tm -ceh:ip-aren't sohhtck
as they 'p- painted, after all."
"Hut if the troors are bevond the
river, how t an we communicate with
them ?" a-ked Mr-. Currie, who awak-
cued by the -bottling, had ri-en auti
joined the group. "They may not
jass near enongli to hear the lining.
and w e have no mean- of .-ending

"Fear nothing for that, mem-sahib,"

"Hut In OA- cab youjKis-ibly do it?"
cried Mrs. Currie, thunderstruck by ;
the confident lone in which this mere
child sKkc of a ta-k from 'which the j

shrunk.
"Listen, sahib," answered Ismail,
"I will slip out of the house and make

and ship across the river."
"But you are quite sure the .Sepoys j
will lulieve you?" askel Major Arm-
strong, douhttully. i
"They'll believe this, anyhow," re
plied the hoy, deliberately making a
deep gash in his hare shoulder and
staining his w hite frock with the blood
as he glided, from the room, followed
by Armstrong.
The plan was soon explained to the
men below, ami a moment later Is
2i tail's dark figure was seen darting
like uu irrow across the open space
in front of the building, followed by a
quick disciiargei of blank cartridges
from the marksmen at the loopholes.
The sound of the tiring drew the at
tention of the Sepoys, several of whom
ran forward to meet him.
In another instant he was in the
midst of them.
"I can scarcely see for those bushes,"
said Colonel Annesley; "but beseems
to he show ing them the wound on his
shoulder, and telling them it was our
ioing."
At that moment an exultant yell
from the enemy came pealing through
the air.
"That's the story of our being short
of water, for a guinea!" said the major ;
it was a very good thought of his. If it
only delays their attack two days long
er, there may be time for help to ar
rive yet."
Slowly and wearily the long hours
of that fearful day wore on. The heat
was so terrific that even the native sol
diers of the garrison could barely hold
their own against it, ami the handful
of Knglishmen were almost -helpless.
Had the Sepoys attacked them, all
would have been over at. one blow;
but hour passed after hour, and there
va no sign of an assault.
At length, as afternoon gave place to
rening. a movement began to show
itself i if the enemy's lines. Thin curls
of smoke rising above the trees showed
that theevaning's meal was in prepa
ration ; and several figures with pitch
ers in their hands were seen going to
wards the river, among whom the
colonel's keen eves soon detected Is
mail.
"By George !" cried the old soldier,
slapping his knee exultantly, "that
lad's worth his weight in gold ! There's
his way down to the river right open
to him without the least chance of sus
picion. Why, he's a born gentleman
nothing else !"
TCvcry eye within the walls was now
turned anxiously upon the distant
group, fearing to see at any moment
some movement which would show
that-the trick was detected.
. How did Ismail mean to accomplish
this purpose? Would he plunge boldly
into the river, without any disguise,or
had he some further stratagem in pre
paration? No one could say.
Suddenly, as Ismail stooped to
plunge his light wooden dipper into
the water, it slipped from his hands
and went floating away down stream.
A cry of dismay a loutl laugh froni
the Sepoys, and then the boy was seen
running frantically along the bank
and trying in "vain to catch the vessel
as it floated past.
"What on earth is he up to?" grunt
ed the 'colonel, completely mystified.
"I see!" cried Major Armstrong tri
umphantly; "there's a boat yonder
among the reeds, and he's making right
for it. Well done, mv brave bov!"
f , tor
Hut at that moment a yell of
from the Sepoys told that the trick
was discovered.
i.u- kily those on the bank had left
their pieces behind, or oor Ismail
would soon have been disnosetl of:
j but the alarm instantly brought up a
I crowd of their armed comrades, whose
i bullet fell like hail ar und the boat
ami it gallant little pilot.
; "Iet us lire a volley and make a
show of ullying out," said the colonel;
"it'll trtkt their attention from him.
i Hut in this he was mistaken.
T se first rattle of musketry from be
hind the house did indeed, recall 'most
of I.-mairs assailants, but at least a
dozen were left, who kept up an inees
sant firing, striking the Uat again and
again.
All at once the colonel dashed his
glass to the floor with a frightful oath.
Iktween thetwogu-ts of smoke he
had sevit the boat turn suddenly over,
and gu whirling down the riwr, keel
; upward.
"There's an end of the iioor lad,'
muttered -the veteran, brokenly. "God
bless him for a brave little fellow. And
now:, old friend, vvt- must just die hard,
for there's no hoj left."
"What the deuce was that?" exclaim
ed the colonel, suddenly. "It look e
rnw nuig pai.
ii s worse than that," said the ma-
jor in a low voice. "The rascals are
! shooting lighted chips of hamhoo on to
j the roof to set it on fire. Send the
women up with buckets to flocd the
t hatch; there s not a moment to lose."
"I'll go and see to it myself!" cried
Mrs. Currie, hasteniug out of the room.
Hut the ower of this weapon had
already become fatally manifest. The
he use was .an old one, and dry as tin
der from the prolonged heat, and -as
f;ust as the flames were quenched in
one place they broke out in another,
When day dawned the fire had al-
ready got a firm hold of one corner of
j the building, and a crushing discharge
was toured ujkjii all who attempted to
extinguished it, while the triumphant
yell of the human tigers below told
them that they felt sure of their prey.
"It's all over with us, old fellow,"
said the colonel, grasping his old com-'
rade's hand; "hut at least we shall
have douoour duty."
" Give me one of your pistols," whis
pered Mrs. Currie to he'r husband, in a
voict that was not her own. "I must
not fall into their hands alive.'1
At. that 'moment Major Armstrong
was seen tti start and bend forward, as
in listening intently ; for he thought
although he could scarcely believe his
ears that he had suddenly caught a
faint sound of distant firing.
In another instant he heard itagain,
and this time there could be no more
doubt, for several of the others had
caught it likewise, and a gleam of hope
once more lighted up their haggard
faces and bio vishot eyes.
Louder and nearer came the welcome
sound, while the sudden terror and
confusion visible among Jthe enemy
showed that they, too, were at no loss
to guess its meaning.
Then high above all the din rose the
well known "Hurrah!" and through
the smoke-clouds broke a charging line
Of glittering bayonets and ruddy Eng
lish faces, sweepin.' away the cowardly
murderers as the sun chases the morn
ing mist.
"That boy's worth his weight in
gold," said Col. Annesley, as a few
hours later, he listened to Ismail's ac
count of how he had dived under the
boat and kept it between himself and
the Sepoys, that they might think
lim drowned. "He's the pluckiest
ittle fellow I've seen, and, although
le belongs to the major I'm going to
take my share of helping him on, by
Jove!"
Western Cattle-Raising.
KXTRNT OF THE HUtf I NKSS AND HOW
IT IS CONDUCTED.
Neaiy all the cattle men of Wyom
ing are getting out of Texas cattle ami
are breeding up their cow herds and
getting young stock from the extreme
Westorn country, Idaho Oregon anil
Washington Territory. The drive
from the above points into Wyoming
this year has been about 1"0,(hm) head,
which found a ready market. All the
country lying north of the Union Pa
cific Railroad is considered better than
the country South of it, tin account of
grass, winter range and water. The
loss to stci- in that country peryearls
very light, not being over 2 to o per
cent., ami very seldom reaching 5 per
cent. A ranch of oM) head can be run
for one year at an expense of 1 per
head. With a ranch of W.ooo head the
cost would average from To to SO cents
head, ami 2L',0t)0 head would not cost
much over oO cents a head. It requires
to run a ranch, say for.o,M head,
about four men during the winter
months and ten men during the sum
mer. It is generally estimated that
they require two horse for every hun
dred head of cattle, which gives to
each man alout ten horses during the
smnmer. There is notingingaftotin
that country. Everythiug is done on
horseback. Horseflesh is the cheapest j
muscle that can le em ployed. A stock j
ranch is letter off with ten men and j
one hundred horses than with twenty
live men and fifty horses. The horse
are ridden until they become tired out;
then a' fresh horse is taken until the
cow-ltoy-uses allthe horses allotted to
him, then he U-gins again with the
horse first tire! out. Each ranch has

in the lastem States it has i

months in the year. In summer the
new-mown hay litis to be spread',"

and unloaded-into stacks and mows,

Duriug a cold storm they generally
move with it, and keep jiiugMjll they
get into a sheltered dace in some ra- j
vine or behind a ledge, travelling some
times in this way twenty-five miles
during a heavy storm. Hut to w hat
ever distance they may stray during
the winter when spring comes they
are tl riven back to their respective
ranges without hvss, where the herds
men attend to them until the winter
sets in again. At one "round-up" la.-t
spring there were thirty-five men,
thirty wagons and 1U00 horses. That
"round-up" is ruii by a regular organi
sation, and is commanded by a captain
whose orders are implicitly obeyed, he
having entire charge over the oe ra
tions. The cattle are all separated ac
cording to the brands denoting their
owners, and then started back to their
ranges. The Wives are also h ratified
and again turnedoose with the herd.
The operation of collecting, separating
and branding at a round-up -occupies
about two months before the cattle are
got back, during which the whole
country is scoured by the cow-boys. It
is generally a time of wild and boister
ous excitement, reminding one of the
annual assemblages of the old fur-traders
when they met to exchange their
peltries for supplies brought up from
St. Louis.
