and Oweneboro road narnett rode
up on the left of ('apt Clark and I n

at once that mv auaplrlons were well
founded and that we were Indeed in
th hands of guerrilla. I believed
that w were done for. Uut hoping to
scape by atratagem. I turned to Clark
and .aid "I had suspected you of be

my arm., ammunition or money.

and I kept straight ahead, telling Clark
I would noon rejoin them About one

During the time those event, were tak

quickly than to go to Hartford, ao.
changing his route, he presced on and
suddenly came upon the fiv men de

way It happened: ft waa spring time,
and the Sun. chief of the tribe, had been
away at war. Then he returned, and
there waa wild feasting to celebrate hta

one lovely maiden, the sweet singer of
the tribe, called Oseetah the Bird She
tood far off. .ad aud quiet, for In her
heart ahe bad made a vow that, ac
cording to Indian creed, she must keep
or die though no one knew of It save
the tlreat Spirit to whom she had given
her secret thoughts. Slowly the Bird
