It W Only a Little Thing, But It Warned the Trusty Guide That There Were Indiana Ahead—They Es caped an Ambush. We were going down the penin sula formed by the junction of the Yellowstone and Little Missouri riv ers, hoping to intercept the Indians and turn them back. It had Leena hard, Swift march, a ride of over four hundred mites, with no halt above four hours, and at ten o’clock in the forenoon half the troops were sleeping in their saddles, as their lean and lame horses picked their way over the rough ground. We had planned to reach the spot where the fleeing Indians would cross the Little Missouri a day or two ahead of them. We believed we had accomplished it. At ten o’clock we wwee Wither two miles of the spot, fhwi the head of the column halted for the men to close up. Our • line had strung out for a mile or more. Between us and the cross ing, as the halt was made, nature had made a highway. It was a grassy road, about twenty feet wide, twisting and turning like a creek. Either side was lined with dense thickets. Half a mile down tho highway it was crossed by a creek with steep banks. Half a mile farther on was a second creek. No man in the column of two hun dred men knew what lay beyond the first turn. The halt to close up was a precautionary measure, but no one dreamed of danger. If the hostile Indians had not turned back or changed their route they should still be forty or fifty miles to the south. The stragglers had come up, the sleepy troopers had braced up under the eyes of their officers, and tho bugler was about to sound the for waixl when the half-breed guide and scout held up his hand in warning. A deer came running up the grassy lane at full speed and was within ten feet of tho colonel’s horse when it wheeled to tho right and vanished into the thicket Next came a fox, which ran under the feet of a dozen horses before he found shelter. Then a second deer —then three oh four rabbits. “What is it?” asked the colonel of the guide. “Ambush!” was the brief reply. “Where?” The guide waved his hand to sig nify that it was down the lane some where. “But what makes you think so?” persisted the colonel, who was im patient to go ahead, and yet too prudent to needlessly expose his command. “Deer fox —rabbits!" replied the guide. “All were frightened. All running away from something. Injuns down there waiting for us. We go some other way.” We turned to the left and flanked the position. We had made a dis tance of seven miles when Indians were seen and skirmishing began, but they soon retreated southwards, and as %e followed them up they crossed the Little Missouri. It was the hand we had hoped to intercept, but why did they turn back without a fight? Everybody was asking the question whan a few of us rode off to inspect the ambush. The death trap had been set for us between the creeks. The lower end of the avenue had boen blocked with felled trees and bushes, and trees partly cut down would have blockaded the up per end as soon as the last horseman had passed. The road here narrowed to fifteen feet. Wherever there was an opening in the bushes which lined the sides it had been dosed with thorns. From sunrise that morning the Indians had been waiting for us. Al most two hundred warriors were in hiding behind' the bushes, ready to thrust out their rifles and fire at the signal. Perched in the trees along the way were half a hundred boys armed witli bows and arrows. Hid den away under the banks of the creeks were a hundred or more squaws, armed with hatchets, knives or clubs. It was not to be a battle, but a massacre. No mercy tans to be shown —not a prisoner thkea. Scouts had observed o4r approach and reported. When the head of our column had fairly entered the lane the eager squaws and impulsive boys could hardly be controlled. In their moving about they frightened the wild animals out of their re treats and sent us the warning. They did not know why we baited, hesitated and then took another way. For half an hour they waited with the scowl of hate on their bronzed faces —with the savageness of devils in their hearts—with eyes which glared and glinted as they roamed about in search of the ex pected prey. Then they whispered to each other: “They have taken another way! The Great Spjfit sent them a warn ing to turn aside 1 We cannot fight these men; let us recross the river and return to the agency!”—Detroit Free Press. | LIGHTNING COURSTHIP. j Cupid’s Interesting Methods at the World's Fair.

I—” “I have a little surprise for you, Amy,” said' the enraptured young man half an hour later in some em barrassment. “Excuse me a mo pnt.” He went out of the room and re turned presently accompanied by a stout old ladywith a determined ex pression of countenance. “My dear,” he said, “this is my mother. She—cr—will live With us, you know." “bo glad! And I have a little surprise for you, too, Harry. ” She left the room and returned in a moment with five fair-haired little apparently ranging in age from three to thirteen. “These are my little darlinap, Harry,” she whispered. “Lydia, Minerva, Penelope, Rachel and Mehitabcl, kiss the gentleman.

Both Had Eczema In Its Worst Form ■ After Physicians Palled, Hood’s' Sarsaparilla Perfectly Cured. j Great mental agony is endured by parents who see their children suffering from diseases caused by impure blood, and for which there seems no cure. This is turned to joy when Hood’s Sarsaparilla is i resorted to, for it expels the foul humors from the blood, and restores the dis-' eased skin to fresh, healthy brightness. Read the following from grateful parents: “To C. I. Hood & Cos., Lowell, Mass.; “We think Hood’s Sarsaparilla Is the most I valuable medicine on the market for blood and i skin diseases. Our two children suffered terri bly with the Worst Form of Eczema j for two years. We had three physicians In that time, but neither of them succeeded in curing them or even in giving them a little relief. At last we tried Hood's Sarsaparilla and. in a mouth both children were bcbw fcetly cured.
