With in an h ur from the time of starting tho party haltid between Bouton's camp and the mountains to the south. Iho captain t the gag from Font Robb's mouth and a died: "Do y. ,u want to save your life?" "You can bet heavy I do," ga.«ped Robb "There is only one way to do it"— "Point v, t that way, and I'm your man," interrupted Robb. "You lire sure that Black Eagle and his p. oplo are e/ ming this way?" "About sh're, captain," replied the Other "And that they will have Dr. Blanch ard with tin ill?" "That's 'bout the size of it—at least it lcoks f o to me." "I want y..n to do exactly what I command you when we meet up with Black Eagle and his party. " "AH right, captain. I'm your man, bat I want to ax this: Won't you let me and my go free when you're through with us?" "If you do as I require, I will let you off for the present. As soon as it is day light I piop.se to hang your 'pard,' as you call t!. . renegade cuss who betrayed us," said the captain sternly. A "Hist!" from the front and the sound of hoof» attracted the captain's attention. "Do as I say," continued Captain Brandon, who was still near Robb. "That is Black Eagle and his crowd! Shout to them to halt!" On the instant Robb called out: "Black Eagle, stop!" "Is that you, Robb?" "Yes." "I thought you were on the other side of the valley. " "I was, but Bouton called me back. " "And sent yon after me?" "Yes." "What does be want now?" "He has changed his mind," said Robb, who was obeying his instrnc with fine ardor. "Changed his mind!" echoed the amazed chief. "Yes; ho wants you to keep on to Quartz Run, where he'll moot yon in the morning, and send back tho doctor by ma " "Are you alone?" "No. Henry Kyle is with ma " "Very welL Both come up and I will give the old white man into youx charge. " The captain whispered to Louis Kyle, whose form was much llko his; misled brother♦«> tak'» of prisoner and to shoot him down if ho' attempted to play falsa Without », word the young man went on, wi.h his left Land grasping one of the bound arms and his right hand clnt ing the stock of his plstoL Lou* walked boldly up to tho group of In dians, and in the indistinct light he recognized the doctor. "Here is the old white man," said Black Eagle. "I am sorry you are going to take him back. " The doctor rode toward tho two men, and as he did so one of the Indian'? horses became restless and plunged against Louis Kyle and Font Robb. So sudden and unexp«ietod was the collision that Kyle was dashed to the ground, and with a quick bound Robb was in among the Indiana "Fire, Bluck Eagle, fLrol We are surrounded by Brandon's men. Hold on to the prisoner I" The astounded chief and his follow ers did not know what to make of thjs, but all realized that they were in the midst of dunger, and quick as a flash they were oil their horsea "Louis Kylol Louisl" shouted Cop tula Brandon. Louis had struggled to his feet from under tho flinty hoofs when Robb saw him and called out: "That's one of Brandon's men I Muko him a prisoner and get back I" Louis Kyle was seized and dragged back, just as the captain realized tho situation and opened Are. In tho mean time L>r. Dlanohard, unopposed, had gone over to where his son was stnnding with the herders. "Howard! Howard 1'" be called out. "Here, my father, herel" The young man ran forward, and in his great de light fairly lifted his father from tho saddle anil folded him to his heart its if he had been a child. When Howard Hlunohurd started to greet his father, Patieh, bound though his arms were and with a gag in his "Fire., HUuk EtiyU, flrel" month, at once started off, tho darkness aiding his flight Kobb was away with lihick Kagle, and Lmls Kyle was aprls oner in the same hands. Th« captain was not long in ascertaining the exact stateof affairs, and, though he was deep ly pained at the loss of his young friend, he reasoned that it would bo unwise to follow up Itlock Eagle's party. "This is onrchance," he said 'Hon ton's party is divided, and if wo hasten to his camp we can surprise und over power him." "And free my daughters," said the doctor, now fully alive to the situation and its necesslties. "Let us mount and push on, " urged Howard. All got Into tho saddle, but I/ouls Kyle's herders refused, one and all, to go into the valley. "The danger is but little. There may lie no fighting at all," said the captain. "We do not dread the dauKcr, " said the leader of the herders, a tall, stern man, "nor do we shrink from battle. " "Why, then, will you not follow me? It is but a few miles to yonder fire. " "We came hither with Louis Kyle. He is our young master and our ciief. IHe is and over has been near to oar htarts,'' said the man Boleniniy "I know that, and -WVTM he here be would have jrou obey me. " "Wore he here we should ob«y yon without a thought of refusing But he j is not here, and that is why we must go How could we enter the valley wi t re dwell his mother, his father and his sister and say to them: 'Louis was ttikeu from liefore our eyes by the rene gade Lndians under Black Eagle, and > we dared not follow. Louis would die ! to save others, but we raised not our hands to save him. No, Captain Bran j don, though our hearts are good to yon, a J we cannot remain with you. Even as I I speak they may be murdering Louis , Kyle, as they would have murdered this * | old man. " "And how long will you follow Black Eagle?" naked the perplexed captain, who at that moment was deliberating about accompanying the herders on what he considered a fruitless mission. "Till we all die or rescue him, " was the heroic reply The other herders grunted their ap proval and began impatiently to gather up their bridle reins. "Go, then, and may success follow you Should you meet up with Louis Kyle, as I pray you may, say that I and my two friKH''" Q-.-., trail till we die or have won. " The captain waved his hand, and the borders turned and disappeared on the trail of Black Eagle and his braves CHAPTER XIV.

Great was Bouton's surprise at seeing before him a man with a gag in his mouth and his arms bound. It was not till he had taken out the gag and cut the cords that he recog nized in the frightened, half strangled man before him the renegade Patch. With an oath Boutou demanded to know what had happened. Patch gave It as his belief that a very hot place had broken loose. "Kit down, man,and get your breath, " said Bouton, laying his hand on Hatch's shoulder and forcing him down. "Sit down and tell mo all about it. Don't ■speak out loud, for I've just had n devil of a time trying to quiet those two girls." Patch did sit down, and after a time he got his breathing under control and told his story with considerable clear ness, though Bouton's impatient ques tions prevented anything like a consecu tive narrative. "And Brandon rescued the doctor?" said Boutou at length. "Yes. It ull happened just as I told you." "Hist I For your lifo, do not s]>eak so loud. Here! Follow me away from the fire. We must speak where there is no danger of being overheard." He led Patch to the bank of the stream and sat down beside him under a tree. "Now go on, but talk low, and for your life after this tell no one the story. " Patch told his story with much detail, nor did Vie neglect to give himself duo prominence. When he had concluded, Bouton slapped him on the back. "Now, Patch, not a word of this to any one. Do yon understand?" "You can bet your bottom dollar I do. I'm up to snuff, I am. The feller that can keep a stil)<T tongue in his mouth than me was born dumb.'' ' 'Good. Now go and take a sleep. It will soon Ixi daylight. " Patch followed tliia advice l>y coiling up where be was and going to sleep at once, and Uouton went back to the slum bering Arc and renamed hi* dozing. Sim Ullss was awake when Patch came gasping into camp. Waiting till Patch nat down, Him, always ready to play the spy, crept softly oyer to a point from which ho could hear every word of tho (Xinversation without being himself observed. And when, for greater secu rity, Uouton led Patch to the edge of the stream, Him followed, and not a word escaped him. He communicated wluit he ha/1 heard to his brother, and it was agreed between them that Him should make his wuv to l)eadw<**l and tele graph to his father to come on. Whijo they were discussing the situ ation in frightened whispers the sturn Itegan to pale and tho crests of the mountains to tho west took on the huo of fire opals. Beardid figures rose from the ground in every direction and began to yawn and stretch themselves. The hows mid mules, resting with lowered hips beside the river, began to prick up their ears und resume their grazing. The fire* were renewed, and those whose duty it was to cook set about getting the morning meal. Henry Kyle went d'jwn to the river to wash his fwxi an'' hands. He bent over a mlrrorlike ex panse under the Hhade of a bush, and he was horrlllixl at the expression of his own face. It was so aged, ghastly and haggard He had not slept much, and it seemed to him that he could never sleep again. His mother was ever in his mind, or when he was not thinking of her he was troubled about the prisoners, and he cursed liii.'i,.elf for the part he had taken in their capture. Having bathed, lie return* d to the campflre, and though it was out of his way he passed noar tho tree under which Alice and Clara w< re sitting. The former did not raise her white face.

"Do yon dare to sjieak of the man yon have so vilely betrayed? Do yon come to wring our hearts with a fresh agony and taunt us with our helplessness"— "I cannot blame you, I eonnot blame you," said Kyle in a ehoking voice. "Still will I obey the better impulse of my heart.'' He turned as if in obedience to her imperative gesture and walked slowly —v sZ fgfggg Uc turned and walked »l<ncly hack. back to where Bouton and his gang were grouped When lie hud gone oat of hearing, Clara, who had followed him with her eyes, turned to her sister and said: "Alice, I think we might trust that man." "Trust him?" repeated Alica "Yes." "And you, with a memory, suggest such a thought?" "But he seems to have changed. It may lie that he has repented and is anx ious to help us." "Anxious to help us? Have we done anything to prevent his helping us if he has that desire? Why should ho come bore to ask what wo need? Is he igno rant of our wants?" Patch came over at this juncture with their breakfast and set it before them, then sneaked back to a place from which ho could watch, and he saw that they left it untasted. Immediatlcy after breakfast Sim Bliss and his brother drew Bouton to one side, and the fanner said: "Tom is going to start for Deadwood this morning." "What for?" asked tho amazed Bou ton. ' 'He is going to telegraph east for more money.'' "That ain't u bad idea. Wo need money very much. When will he come back?" "In a week or ten days. " "With the cash?" "I hope BO." replied Kim "Very well, nnything I can do to help him let me know. Of course he'll have sense enough not to tell where I am if he meets any one anxious to know." Tom assured Bouton that he knew what he was about, and that he could keep a quiet tongue in tho interest of his friends. The result of this agree ment was that before noon Torn Bliss, well monnted and armed, was on the way to Deadwood. CHAPTER XV. During the morning Bouton told Henry Kyle that he was going to find Captain Brandon, at tho same time de siring Henry to remain with the ladies. Then Bouton lay down to sleep in an ticipation of a long night ride. He had not slept long when lie was awakened by Patch, who informed him that <me of Bluek Eagle's Indians had 001110 In. Bouton got up and questioned the In dian, who told him that he had seen Captain Brandon and the Prophet to gether. Tho Indian was right. The Prophet and Captain Brandon had counted their forces. On hearing of Louis Kyle's cap ture, the Prophet set out on foot alone to rc»cuo him and came within a couple of miles of Black Eagle's warriors bo foro night He kept on, nor haulted for breath or in doubt about the way, until hestiMsl on the rim of Kyle's valley and saw far beneath him tho stars reflected in the placid lake. "They are coming. I hear them far behind I have outstripped them as 1 would the wind on such a mission." Down tho steep hills the Prophet sped to the lneudowlike expanse that in the funlight looked like a great emerald in the granite setting of the mountains. As he noared tho house, the location marktsl by the darker ontlines of the surround ing tr<sm, the resting cattle started up In alarm and the deep baying of a hound was heard in front. "Down,dog! down!" said the Prophet us the dog come fiercely toward him. Tho flog obeyed and slunk in ahcuii as if ashamed of Ills mistake. The Prophet ran up to the house and heat with his clinched (Ist oil the door. "Who is there?" demanded Valentin# Kyle from within. "I—I— A friend," was the reply. "Your name?" "Men call me DiUiiel the I'rophet. Arise! Awake! The Philistines are iu the hills, and they come this way with the speed of a mountain torrent and the destruction of a prairie lire. Up, Valen tine Kyle! Up, for the sake of your home, your wife, and your daughter!" Htill, as he h|m>ke the Prophet contin ued his isiUudiiiK on the door, and the echoes round about. t4*ik lip the hollow sound. In a few minutes the door was o|s<n<d, and Valentine Kyle uppeured shading a light and bending forward to get a sight of his visitor. When his eyes Ls-canie accustomed to the gloom, he discovered the weird, glKiuitic form of the Prophet, and he drew back, with his hand on tin- pistol he had hastily fastern <1 to his waist. "Kcor not," cried the I'rophet. "In Hod's name, believe I um a friend." "I do. Knter and tell us your mis sion. " "1 have no time to sit down, nor huve you time to hear me. Houton and his gang even as ! m|m ak are entering your vidley"— "KnteriiiK my valley?" "Even as I tell tin*'. " "Hut why?" "Why does the wolf enter your folds? lie comes for plunder or worse Mark to the hurkinxof your hound! The wind sweeps this way ami he has scented them. Call your daughter, secure your arms and follow rne with your wife Ilelay not; a minute may Is- worth a llfyj" Those mam wucde can give no idea < i the effect v«f the Prophet's uuuuiif. It 7«i simply Irresistible, and, with tt wouuui's quick apprehension, Mrs fiy le saw that he spoke with ruasou and felt that It would be wise to obey hiiu. "L«et as follow the Prophet, hue band, '' she said eagerly. "No harm can oome of it, for we haw ever heard <.f him a« a good man. " Valentine Kyle lvad oome to the mil cluskni that it win not a false alarm and wan hastily puttmg on his equip ments when his daughter Nora, the In dian girl Ku&hat, tuid an old herder o&me rushing in. The herder called otit: '"HIMV are horsemen In our valley, and they an 1 galloping this way!" "That is Boutou's gang. " said the Prophet '' Hurry! For your li VI A, hurry!'' In less time than it takes to dewribe it Mrs. Kyle and her daughter threw on such covers as they found handy, Mr. Kyle extinguished the light, and all went out. If Valentine Kyle had enter tained any doubts about the vicinity <-f a considerable body at horsemen, they vanished after he had been a minute in the open air. His ears told him. jhat they were not 800 yards away. "Follow me," he whispered. "I know every place of concealment üb*ut the valley." With his riflw in his left hand and his ir ~i„ , T"?'"® *° light, Valentine Kushat, ■^ a^T d by NorU HD<l dian herder brought up the rear. A few hundred yards back of the bouse the foothill of the highest mountain in sight was broken into ravines and made up of rock heaps that looked at a little distance like the ruins of a mighty tem ple. Here in the long ago Valentine Kyle had often played with his beys and his baby daughter. At the present time a few of the more open spaevs were used as corrals for the sheep, but there was not a nook in it that Mr. Kyle and any of his family could not have found blindfolded. "We iuv Kafc here for the present, I think. Lot us wait. I hear them call ing," said Mr. Kj-le. They stopjieil in a little glen that seemed t<> t>e roofed by a projecting rock, for there van only a narrow strip overhead through which tho stars could be seen. They heard the clinking of arms, the stamping and punt ing < f li<uses that had been hard ridden und the pounding on the walls of the log house. "Hello! Hello in there!" "That's Bouton's voice," said the Prophet "Open up!" in a louder and more im peratives voice. "Open up, orwe'll break in the doors!" "Start a fire," shouted one of the men, "and burn them oat" "Let mo go back to a pomt where I can talk witli those demons without ex posing your place of concealment, " said the Prophet Valentino Kyle was about to pro tent against this, but l*>fore he could do so the Prophet hud vanished. He hurried in the direction of the outlaws, ami when he thought they coold hear him he called out: "I am lien 1 , Bouton, to answer for Valentino Kyle." "You! Who are you?" asked Bouton, and the noise and tho shouting ceased about him. "Do you not know, O firstborn of Belial?" "You are the Prophet!" gasped Bou ton. "From thy falso lips tho truth has fallen for once. I came to wuru the in nocent of thy w ickod designs. " ~ "Of my designs?" repeated Bouton. His whole nature was superstitions, and at tliat moment he felt that the Prophet * fabulous gift was indeed a mility and A ehut from IKe Prophet'* rifle ttrtUKal )ilin at Houtvn'B fed. thut by sume occult means he hud dis oovered his secret It would not do to Oomuiuniouto his fears to his etjuully superstitious companions, ho lie mode up his mind to put a tsjld face on It. "Aye, thy designs. Think yoo not that [ nau read your purpose?" "When did you come hero?" "That matters not." "You wore with tho immigrunts this morning," said Bouton, recalling his soout's information. "Yitt, anil with Black Eagle tonight. " "With Illnck Eagle?" "Even ho. But why should 1 exchange words with thee, O most cruel of mon grel curs?" •Hie Prophet stopped tho use of tho irwind uerson slmrular. a sure siirn that hi* spiritual nuture win sinking for tlio time Into abeyance, and continued: "You oomo to the nest, but the birds have llown, and tho cruel hunter that follows them must carry his life in his hands." "There Is still plunder in live nest," said the outlaw, maddened at being checkmated. "(Jloan out tho house there! Apply the torch!" he sliouted to his men. "The liKht will show us the way to the corrals. Tho fut herds cf lCyle's valley will bo welcome to our /riond." A cheer answered this command, and at once tho work of destruction began. One of the men oubddc lit a torch, but he did not long survive to lament his rashness, for a shot from tho Prophet's rifle stretched him at Bouton's feet. Tills incensed the outlaws, and one of them, more impetuous than his compan ions, picked up the hlacing torch and hurlod It into tho house. In u few mln uteH the lmilding loomed out of the darkness and a cruel red light (lashed In the windows. (joing hack, the i'roph<<t said: "Hoe, Valentine Kyle, your liyuso is oil lire!
