SEPTEM HEli 10, V : s?£ C [Coi yrv ht, by AR:«rican Press Associa tion.] CHAPTER X. In obedience to the stronger will and | tli" additional f;ict that Captain Bran - I don hr.d rescued him from his pursuers, i H. ward Blanchard submitted at once ' t«' his control and followed where he I led Bark into the hills they went un j til it was n< ;irly daylight, when How i ard. who had l>ecn stumbling on lieliind • with f» r as heavy as his heart, called out: "Captain, do you think we are bet tering i is» Ives by this flight?" "You ::r ■ deceived." replied the cap tain. "The man who gallops back for re-enf reemeuts when the battle is rag ing can hirdly !»• said to lie retreating. If Louis Kyle is living. I expect to hear fr m hira Ik fore the suu g.x s down. " The captain resumed the lead, and descending from the m< nntaiii side, which tiny had bet 11 traversing, en tered a valley. This valley narrowed as they went on, the sloping sides rising at a sharper and sh:irper angle until they became perpendicular and the val ley became a canyon. Through thiscan yon a thread of el. ar water flowed, with a splashing and waving that struck Hard to be out of all proportion <o its size. Even the fall of his own feet and the sound of his voice impressed him as painful exaggerations. The high perpendicular walls of the CiUiyf.n magnified the sound, the echoes being dashed back and forth till lost in a hoarse muriLur far overhead. As they went on it seemed to Howard as if they were descending into the bowels of the earth. The narrow strip of blue sky looked like an ethereal river in which the stars were reflected, for be it known that in the profound depths that char acterize the mountains of the west the stars ciui be distinctly seen even when the cloudless sun shines with mideutn- i nier fervor in the sky of the upper J world. "Can we ever get out of this place, I captain?" asked Howard Blanchard, ! when the darkness became so dense that he could hardly make out tho form of his guide a few yards in the advance. "Yes. Trust to mo and keep a good heart," replied the captain, without halting or looking back. To pass from the narr. w, black cell of a dungeon into tho center of an il la minated salon in Windsor palace, if suddenly affected, would bo a transfor mation that would blind tho eyes foi the time and overwhelm the senses. If u light like tho sun were suddenly to flash in the high heavens at midnight, people would ignore the phenomenon for the moment in tho overwhelming effect upon the senses, yet something like this happened to Howard Blanchard Tin re was a short turn in tho canyon—a turn that reveal'd what seemed to Howard Blanchard like the door of a mighty fur nace filled with molten gold, and in this door tho black form of Captain Brandon stood out liko a statue against the sun. "Hold your hand to your eyes for a bit," the captain shouted back, himself setting tho example, and Howard obeyed him. After a few minutes the captain sailed out: "Now, open your eyes and come on. " This advice was to prepare the young man for the sudden effect of a light that was natural, but dazzling on account of the change and the brilliancy of tlie sur rounding snow j>oaks from which it was reflected. A few yards farther on How ard Blanchard discovered that the canyon terminated in a valley or de pression about a quarter of a mile in diani' tor. Excepting at a point directly opposite to that by which they had en tered, this remarkable valley was shut in by precipitous walls that roso up for 3,000 feet or more, and here and there detached masses in the form of pinnacles and looking like the mighty ruins of Gothic cathedrals roso for 1,000 feet higher. The stream flowing along the bottom of the canyon by which the two men had entered widened out into an irreg ular shaped lako a hundred yards wide in its narrowest diameter and flashing like a great mirror in the center of the rock rimmed basin. Here tho waters seemed to rest before rushing on through tho opening in the opposite wall, by which avenue they went down to join tho sulphur crusted rocks of tho won derful Yellowstone. Tho lako was fur ther fed by it waterfall that leaped from the summit of the wall, starting as a band of liquid silver and reaching the bottom a veil of iridescent foam. Tho irregular shape of this valley added not a little to its beauty. The few trees near the walls, the many shrubs bordering tho lake tuid tho grass carpeting tho ex pause were of various shades of emerald, each, iis tho oyo rested on it, seeming tho very pn-fection of nature's coloring "Why," exclaimed Howard Blanch ard, when ho could give utterance to his surprise, "this is wonderfull" "The Indians call it 'The Great Spirit's Council Place,' " said the cap tain, his face glowing in the soft light that suffused everything about him. ' 'And a fitting name it is. The com bined hands of humanity, working through all the- ages, could not build so glorious a strueturo to the honor of the ever living God," said the enraptured Howard. Captain Brandon, who had been stand ing ban hejuled, replaced his hat and said, "Let us lie moving on. " As Howard followed him ho asked, "Is it not curious that this place is not inhabited?" "It is a place in the belief of the In dians too sacred for man to dwell in. " "But white men could have no such feelings. " "True. White men consider no place sacred that they have not built them selvi s. Our altars are sacred in propor tion to the art we lavish on them. But thin temple has a priest" "A priest?" "Yes; a priest as pure and faithful as ever devoted his life to tho truth." "Who can ho be?" "This," said Captain Brandon, com ing to a halt, "is the homo of Daniel the Prophet." "< »f that remarkable being who came to our aid?" "Yes." '' The chances am lie is now a prisoner in B< niton's hands. " "No, Howard, the chances arc he has readied this place ahead of us." They had come to a halt opposite a serii of op.-'tiiiigs that looked like im mense honeycombs cut into the face of the wall. B ith heard a noise and bent to listen. From faroff depths they caught tho sound of a deep bass voice* singing. Howard recognized the air. Ho had often heard it in the camp meetings of West Virginia The words, at first indisr ingu ishabb\ became plainer and plainer, till he caught tho phrases: A string mountain la our Ooa. And the hills arc his footstool. "That is tli. Prophet," said Howard, awed by tie- sound and the silent sulv limity cf his surroundings. "Yes, he comes this way." The words had but passed Captain Brandon's lips when the rhythmic beat ing of feet could be hoard in cadence *.v - h the voice. Then the measure ''i .<< .!, and in more joyous tones the \>oi\.s rang out: *'l run Joseph, yt ur brother," he said. •And still Uj n.y heart are you dear V- n s<»ld nit*. You thought 1 was dt-ad. Lux God fur your hake sent me here.' By I a- ban on'a shadow we <stood, Tli- dark cedars I*OM«? out 'gainst the sky, Wh- n the pray coot was dappled with blood And tho slave traders* came passing by T1 ie Prophet had reached the exit of the cave and 6tood framed by tho rocks and bathed by the golden sunlight "Youare here," he cried, "here, as I expected!" And he hastened out and gave a hand to each. "Any news from Louis Kyle?" asked the captain as they followed the Prophet into the cave. "Follow me and you will see," said the Prophet, still striding aheait They followed, and as they went on the light became dimmer, but so gradually that they coold see the vaulted roof and the supporting stalactitic pillars with the greatest distinctut ss. Two hundrid feet from the entrance the hall widened into a chamber of such proportions that the farther walls were but indistinctly discernible in the "dim religious light " In the center of this chamber—if such tho splendid cathedrallike expanse could be called—a fire burned on what looked to be an altar, and about it the indistinct forms of a number of men could be seen. As tho captain and How ard Blanchard neared the fire one of the figures turned and came hastily toward them. It did not need a second glance to discover the handsome face and grace ful form of Louis Kyle. "Captaiu Brandon and Mr. Blanch- < ard, '' ho said in a husky and troubled j voice, "I met the Prophet this morning, j and he told me all. I did what I could to avert the blow I never dreamed that j you had a traitor in your own camp. " I "Our case is bad," replied tho cap- ! tain, still retaining tho young man's j hand, '' and but for you it might have j been worse Do your companions come i to aid us?" "They do. They are my father's ! herders, and there is not one of them ' who is not ready to die with me and for me." replied Louis Kyle. "Before another sun rises they will ! have a chance to prove their devotion. " | "And you can trust me that they will j not bo found wuntiug," responded | Louia "Come, my friends" said the P*<ph et, "before doing more you must eat and rest Of old the faithful lived in caves, but it is no place recorded that they lived without food. Come with me and bathe. Nature has made ample provision here " Ho led them into a smaller apart ment illuminated by two torches, the red light of which fell upon a deep, clear fountain in the center. "I will call you when the meal is pre pared " When the Prophet withdrew, Howard asked Louis Kyle how he reached that place with the Prophet and where his horses were. "Two of my men are guarding tho horses in a well grassed valley far up the cliffs. But as to tlio manner of our reaching hero I cannot tell you. I only know that I could not retrace my steps," replied Lonia "Did you not come through the can yon?" "No; we entered a cave miles away, it seems to me. We had no lights and had to hold to each other's belts, the Prophet taking tho lead How he ever made his way through the Stygian labyrinth I cannot explain. But here we are, and only your presence assures me that we nre not in another world " They washed their hands and faces in the pool and wero surprised to find the water quite tepid to tho touch and some what saline to tho taste. In less than half an hour tho Prophet again appeared and called to them to follow him. He led them into tho place where tho fire was burning and tho grateful aroma of broiling venison filled the air On wood en dishes ranged about tho altar they found an abundance of cooked meats and delicious trout. They would have set to work eating with western promptness had not tho Prophet called out in a sol emn voice: "First kneel and let us return thanks. " Every man knelt beforo a dish, so forming a circle about tho altar, and tho Prophet offered np a prayer, filled with Biblical quotations and startling rhe torical phrases of his own. He had tho good sense not to pray the victuals cold He brought up suddenly and set an ex ample ho would have his guests follow. "Now, my brethren," said the Prophet when tho meal was concluded, "we must havo rest Sleep without fear, and when tho tinio for action comes I will call you." CHAPTER XL Bouton madoknown his intentions to his prisoners, informing them of tho chargo and his intention to take Dr. Blanchard back to West Virginia for trial. Tho doctor tore up tho warrant in his face, and indignantly denied tho charge. Tho doctor deemed an explanation duo to those about him, and told tho story of his life. With much shrewd ness he guessed at tho plot iu which Lawyer Bliss and his sons wero so deep ly interested When tho doctor had fin ished, sturdy John Clyde, as spokesman for tho immigrants, said: "Wo don't need your explanation, doctor, to couviuco us of your inno cence, Wo believe in you and aro ready to fight for you, though wo ono and all regret that our fighting will do no good at this time But we can say this—we do not propose to leave here till this thing is settled " When Dr. Blanchard became calmer, he saw that resistance would bo useless, and ho reasoned that Bouton would not hesitate to enforce his command Draw ing Alice and Clara to one side lie said: "My children, there is nothing left but to Buhmit to those men. Let us go with them, and trust to heaven to shield is from the harm they contemplate." "Wo will go with you, father," said Alice, with her arms about his neck 'Wo could not, would not remain back Keep good heart and succor will come I have faith in Louis Kyle." "As I havo," replied tho doctor 'But let us bo getting ready. " Believing that tho outlaws would not dare to take them within reach of the law, and hoping that a rescue would soon come, tho doctor decided to leave all his effects not needed fur immediate use in tho care of John Clyde Clyde and his companions having made up their minds to remain where they wero till tho doctor's troubles wero over, at once began preparations for a jx-rma uent camp Promptly at noon Bouton came over, leading two saddle horses, Patch following with a pack mulo in tended to carry tho "outfit" of tho young ladies. "Doctor," he said, "you can ride your own horse for tho present Come, we are waning ror you. The parting of the doctor anil his daught' rs from the immigrants was sad In the extreme. Tiie women clung to Alice and Clara, and the men could not chock thoir tears as they hold the old man's hand. Ji hn Clyde helped Alice ainl Clara to ui< unt, hands were waved in adieu, and the march to an unknown d sanation began. All Bouton's men were in the saddle and waiting. Henry Kyle, pale and r< ticent, was at the rear of the liui, where the pack animals were in readiness. The prisoners, for such they were, were placed in the center of the line. The cavalcade headed for the south and s"on wound out of the valley of the Blue Water. Sim Bliss and his brother Tom, after tho exultation over their success had sub sidod, began to ask themselves how their plans had Ixen furthered and what re mained to be done for their perfection. While the Bliss brothers were discussing the situation Bouton's brain was not "Mil children, there is nothing left but tn submit." idle. He rode apart from his men, his head bowed and the reins dangling from the neck of his horse. He had the habit peculiar to men who live much in solitude of thinking aloud, and on this occasion his thoughts rail something after this fashion: "The Kyles and the Weldons are one. There can be no doubt about that If this dog, Sim Bliss, told me the truth— and I think he did—the Kyles are the heirs to that estate, and if they put in an appearance the Blanehards would be nowhere. If Henry and Louis Kyle were both dead, that estate would belong to their sister Nora and her husband, if she had one. I am supposing now that Val entine Kyle remains in exile, and ho will if he's wise. The two Blanchard girls are pretty as pictures, but so is Nora The m.»n that gets Nora Kyle for a wife will strike tho biggest kind of a bonanza I think I see the gent lonian, i think I see my way as straight as a string and clear as a trout stream. " Mr. Bouton straightened up in tho saddle, drew in the reins and urged his horse to that part of the line where Henry Kyle wa« riding, evidently in very low spirits "A penny for your thoughts," laughed Bouton, reining in and playfully slap ping Henry on the back. Henry Kyle half turned and asked: "What do you propose to do with Dr Blanchard's daughters?" "I haven't thought ajjout them. I be lieve the Bliss brothers are enough in terested in their welfare to see that no harm comes to them. " "Tho Bliss brothers are natural born protectors,'' sneered Henry Kyle, "If you don't think they can fill the bill, why don't you go in and give them your services? Here you are in the sulks instead of being delighted at our success—at the success of your own plans. " "lam so di lighted at the success of my own plans that I feel like cutting my throat." "Don't do that But why the feel ing?" "I didn't join this outfit to make war on women and children. If this doctor and his son are prisoners and thieves, let the Blisses pay us for our services and take them away, though, to bo frank, I think it a put. up job, and you think tho same thing. " "We never had any doubt about that But tho young ladies—what would you do with tli em?" "lean tako them to a place where they will be safe and well eared for." "Where is that?" "My father's house. *' "I thought you wero never going back thero again. " "Then you thought wrong. My moth er lives, and so long as sho lives she will receive me, and I will seek her out." "But supposing your brother falls in love with the girl who has now your heart?" Bouton chuckled and looked out between tho horse's ears "I shall suppose nothing. I havo not been in the habit of considering tho ef fect of my conduct My being here is tho best proof of that Excepting your self and a few men of tho same cast the members of this gang are creatures of impulse. Wo act, then think. " Bouton bowed with a mock courtesy and rode to tho rear of tho line, where Font Robb and Patch had chargo of the pack uiulea He gave them some orders, then gallojx'd to tho head of the line, t.-here tho young Shoshone, Black K:iglo, had command of tho scouts He remain ed with the Indians till the sun set. By this time they had reached an open valley, thr tn,/h which wound a broad, shallow s r. . tn, tho banks lined with cotu.uw-Kid and the grassy expanse broken here and there by clumps of cedar and mountain oaks. Bouton's trained eye at once fell on the proper position for a camp, and lie dismounted from his horse. 11.- s nt a number of tho Indians into the surruvo'ding hil's to act as vedettes and w : ' Blanchard came up with A 1 Clara Ho would have le !;h«. • '• r ladies to dismount had tin y • patcd him and sprung from tii • "you will permit me, I. aid, with a profound bow, "to be you. humble servant so far as to tako charge of your horsea " Ho took the bridles, and when all the party was up he instructed one of his men to stako the horses in a peninsula formed by a bend in the river, tho long rawhide ropes giving ample space for grazing. Huge fires were built, and from tho packs provisions were taken for the evening mcaL Dr. Blanchard gave no thought to himself. Anxiety for his 1. autiful daughters rent his heart, and for the time unmanned him. If hoc uld have ha<l assurances of their safety, ho would have willingly given up li s own life, but such assurances could not lie had. There was not in all the party a man to whom he c uld look for help Once, as lie saw Henry Kyle passing, tho impulse ranic t > him to call to tho young man and invoke his aid. Henry Kyle looked t•> bo so different from the others that the doctor imagined he might lie bit tor, until he recalled that it. was lb iny Kyle who had come us a spy to their camp fin the plains and had nft*-i*ward ln'trayed thorn. Whib* he was thinking this over Claru laid her band on his shoulder and whispered to him, as if he read his thoughts: "Might wo not apjieal to Henry Kyle?" From the first the handsome, graceful youth h:ul made an impression on Clara, which he would blush to acknowledge to herself, but do what she wvuld she Could not banish him fr. m her mind ThedocUir sir -ok his head and answi r : "Why should we appeal to him? he Hot know the utter helplt ssness and misery of our situations?" "He dots, father, and yet something tells me he might bo itidu-ed touid us. " "If his own In art dees not induce him, our words will not" "Would you let me try?" "No, my child I cannot permit yon to sn.. M'tional indignity. Let us endure iu. , . nee till heaven sends us aid. " The doctor drew Clara lo h.s breast and kissed her beautiful white brow and left a tear on it The Indian pickets wore recalled by three rifle shots following each other at regular intervals. Black Eagle and his ten ludians were ravenously hungry— the nomad Indian seems to have been born hungry, and there is no authentic record of his ever having eaten enough | Bouton was too prudent to feed his j braves all they could eat Ho caused to i be set before them what he considered a i "square feed." And when they had finished every fragment and licked tho : platters clean he drew the young chief Blaek Eagle to one side aud said: "Black Eagle, you are the bravest man, white or red, in the mountains I want you to help me, I want you to take this white man, Dr Blanchard, | away from camp tonight. " "And where am I to take him?" "I do not know, nor do I care, only this—he must never be seen again. " "Not even his scalp?" "No." "It shall be as you say. When am 1 to return?" "As soon as you can. " "By daylight?" "That will da " "Good! My braves and I will rest. Wako us when you are ready," said Black Eagle He went over and lay down among the dusky reuogades, and Bouton sought out the Bliss brothers and sat down be tween them. "Well," he said, with the expression of a man who had got rid of a care, "that point is settled " "What jxiiut?" asked Sim. "About the old man. " "Going to send him off?" " Yea " "With whom?" "Injuns." "What will they do with him?" "Lose him." "Lose him I" echoed the two brothers. "Without the ghost of tho shadow of a doubt. I wish we had the old man's son in the same box. " "But you are sure you can get him?' This from Sim. "I'm certain. Now, my friends, let us rest till midnight " Bouton drew off his boots, wrapped a bhuiket about his shoulders and lay down with his feet to the tiro. He was soon asleep; but, though the Bliss broth ers imitated his actions and attitude, they could not sleep They lay side by side, talking in whispers, mid starting nervously when the wind, with stronger force, shook the boughs above their heads or contended with the murmuring current near by. They were awake at midnight when Blaek Eagle came over and roused Bou ton. They sat up and anxiously watched the movements of the two men. The In dians quickly saddled their horses, and Bouton went over to where tho doctor lay awake, on the opposite side of tho tree from his sleeping daughters. "Doctor," whispered Bouton, "1 want to speak with you. Come over to tho lire, " Anxious not to disturb his daughters, but wondering much at tho man's mys terious manner, the doctor obeyed him. Instead of taking his victim to the fire, Bouton conducted him to where Black Eagle and his braves were standing bo lido their horses. At a signal from tho leader Dr. Blanchard was seized, gag ged and bound on the back of one of tho horses. So noiselessly was this done that tho men sleeping near by were not dis turbed The litho figures swung into the saddl<>s and the dread cavalcade crossed the stream and was swallowed in the darkness. CHAPTER XIL In tho Prophet's cave, where slept Captain Briuidou, Louis Kyle mid How ard Blanchard, there was no variation of light to tell tho changes that were going on in tho outer world. The Prophet had that rare gift, an intuitive conception of the passage of tima He carried no watch, and he but rarely looked up at tho sun, for which ho had as Idolatrous a reverence as the fin* wor shipers, who, in tho far back ages in habited these mountains and kept their sacrificial altars burning on tho highest summit "Awake, arise! The Philistines bo in our borders!" shouted the Prophet, when the time allotted for slumber hiul passed. At the sound of the deep sono rous voice the men sprang from the ground, some of them seizing their arms in alarm. Howard Blanchard, who was wholly ignorant of the methods of this remarkable man, stared wildly about him as if expecting an attack. As the Prophet spoke he brought out dried meat from tho recesses that honey - oomlied the immense chamber, and set ting the example he would havo tho Others fellow ho ate heartily and filled a pouch slung over his shoulder. "See that your arras and ammunition are ill good order. Gird up your loins as did the Gidoonltes of old, for, as my soul liveth, it will not faro well with them who beset our paths in theso mountains." "Wo aro all ready," said Captain Brandon. "It is well Now, that wo may ad vance with more rapidity, I havo pro vided torches. Hero are three." Ho luuuhd tho captain, Howard Blanchard and Louis Kylo each one. "Light them at this altar. " Thero was always a light burning on the altar when a fire was not blazing there. Tho Prophet lit four large earthen lamps, and placing ono on each corner muttered a prayer that sounded like an incantation, then shouldered his rifle and strode away in advance. To Howard Blanchard it looked as if their course lay into the heart of the Titanic cliff that towered above tho •Mi trance of tho cave, and such in truth was the case. Oil they went past tho fountain where they lind bathed that morning, and along gloomy galleries whose vaults the torches failed to reveal and whose blaek glistening walls looked like the mythical furnaaos of the lower world in which the fire had Ism long extinguished On and on and up and up, through this awful temple of silence, this cave of tho shadows, this hiding place of night The lightest footfall echoed and re-echoed farther and farther off till lost in shadowy whispers. Up and on, the ohnmliers becoming smaller and tho passages or galleries shorter and narrower, until at length the most slen der had difficulty in getting through. Without any premonitory glimmer of twilight the Prophet led them through a narrow opening und out into the gold en sunlight and under tho d<-op blno vault "Thank God for the light!" exclaim ed Howard Blanchard as he tossed away tlio smoking fragments of his torch. The Pr-phr-t *am\ hi* arms, anil turning to Captain Brandon said: "Now you t.ikc the lead" "The horses :uv near by in the Pr phot's glen, " said Luis Kyle. "Then we must go there first. " The captuin stepped into the advance, and within a mil*' lit- led them to a bowl shaped valley, in which were m.-Jiy h"i>>«-a, tlie two herders left back by Luis Kyle keeping watch over a uumber that wore stivked "I have here horse s anil saddling enough for all The plunderers do not lay my property. " The Proph et went to a little hut near the center of the valley and r.mie out with three sets of equipments. In a short time all the horse.-* mo-s --sary to give each man a mount were s<vl<lle<L The delight of the herders, who were half oentanrs, was uuboiuided at being again mounted "Are yon not going with us?" asked Captain Brandon, seeing the Prophet hold back. "Not unless you command it, " said the Prophet. "1 cannot command if you have a 1 >etter reason forgoing in another direc i tion. " "Leave my own plan to myself.'' The Prophet raised his hands in bene diction and said, with great solemnity: . "May the God cf Abraham and Isaac | and Jacob and all the prophets guard you and waicli over you. Amen and amen.'' Without halt, over hills, into valleys, across streams, the men kept on f< r hours. Urn don in the advance aud leading the rush of horsemen. In three Oil timi on mi J up uml up. hours the horsemen reined in on the summit of u hill, uiul the Indian who had been in advance extended his ami and pointing down said: "Sew the fires in Bouton's camp!" "Let us dash on," said Howard Blanchard, eager to hasten to the rescue of his father and sisters. "No, no, " said the captain. "Cool ness, not impetuosity, must win. Wo must find out the situation and all about the force we have to contend with be fore risking our lives. " He was about to detail Louis Kyle and one of the Indians to go into the valley on the scout when all were star fled by hciiring the approach of two horsemen. Enjoining silence on the men and drawing them back from the trull. Captain Brandon dismounted The horsemen from the valley halted about the middle of the hill and 200 yards l>o low the point occupied by Brandon's ),»arty. "Stay hero, while I find out who those people are," said the captain, handing his bridle to one of the herders. Without another Word Captain Bran- dou disappeared in tho darkness, and 80 silent wore his movements that they did not disturb tlio mormor of voices com ing up from below. More silefft than the gentle night wind that trsvayed tho cedars along tho mountain side, tho cap tain approached tho horsemen, indis tinctly visible between his eyes and the . glow of tho distant campflre. Measur ing his distance by the sound of their voices, ho reached a point where he could mako out every word and halted. His fine ear detected and recognized tho speakers as liobb and tho renegade Patch. "That's the solidest kind or sense, Robb, but can you got through yer wool what ho took tho Injuns in for and sent us out?" ask<>d Patch. "Why, I thought he was goln to send tho doctor east with them lawyer chaps?" "Waal, that shows you'ro about as groen as they make 'em. Them lawyer chaps wants the old man and his sou out of the way. " "So's they may have the gals?" "Not a bit of it So's they may have a full swing at a lot of loot to which tho Blanchards has title in West Vir ginia. I've overheard ejiough to con vince mo I'm right, but I can't see clear through it" "They, Font, it must bo blamed liuze, for I never seed a man so quirk to w* through anything that had a glimmer of light in it as you," said Patoh in a complimentary tone. "If I could," continued Font Robb, "I'd liko to save tho old doctor for a bit and I'arn all about ft." "But why can't we do It?" asked Patch. "Cause if Black Eagle carries him off tonight, as I'm nigh shore he'll do, tl.ey'll take tho other dido of tbo val ley"— "In the direction of tho mountains? "Yea." Ouptuin Brandon ha<l heard onougli. Leaving Bouton's pickets undisturbed he hastened bock to tbo party, and as he went ho decided on his plan of action. "What did you l<*un?" nuked tho anximis Louis, when tho captain emerged from tho darknesa. "I will toll you us wo go buck." "Go back?" "Yes. YOU must otgno with me. Howard, you tako cliurgo of tho party in our absence. " "How long will you bo gono?" asktxl Howard. "Not long if all goon well. " Before Howard could ask another question tlio raptain and Louis Kyle had vanished. As they wont down tho hill tho captain related what ho had heard, and announced his purpose to capture tho two men and use them for his own purpow*. Tlio object was to overpower tho outlaws before they could give an alarm to their friends in the valley, anil so "veil was this intention carried out that neither Fatah nor Robb could tell how ho was seized and thrown to the ground. "Not an outcry, " said tho captain as ho tied Robb's hands behind him. "Resist and I shoot!" hissed Louis Kyle, with one hand on Patch's rod throat while tbo other held a pistol to his head. Tho rufllans were t<x> much aston ished to resist. In addition to binding their hands behind thorn, the captain gaggt d them to prevent their making an outcry. They were led back to where Howard Blanchard was anxiously waiting. Ajid that young gentleman for some mbiutes could not cn*<Ut the report when tho captain told what he had done.
