IURh's depurturu was to
leave tho bouse nt once, tie
tried to suy something to
Laura to sootbo bcr. to excuse hl(
own unortunato part lu ber brcaUIni:
with htr lover. He could only ro tu
bcr and taking bcr band kliwcd It
without a word. Then be told bcr
that be should take the rink or cap
ture nnd depart Instantly.
11 o wns dlK-ournlug upon the method
of hla departure In quick, excited
tones, when a horseman entered tli
yard, and riding up to the vcrnndii
drew a letter from his belt nnd Hand
ed It to n negro who went out to re
celvo It. It wan for Mr. Fain; - It
had been sent tliroupb the lines froui
Nashville, where tier butband wna
lying dangerously III, and begged ber
to come to him.
After Its perusal Mrs. Fain deter
mined to set out the next day. taking
with her her daughter and the rnuld
Alice. Daniel would drive them.
"You shall go with us." said Laura
to Mark. 'JThls Is fortunate. In our
company you will tie far safer than
trying to make your way alone."
It occurred to Mark' that since be
was being bunted as n half starved
creature In the dlsgulso of a negro girl
ho would le less liable to suspicion us
a well drcod man traveling with a
party of southern ladles than lu any
other diameter. At nuy rate ho took
this view of It, nnd when Mrs. Fatu
announced bcr Intention to go he of
fcred to escort the party to tho Union
Tho offer was accepted, nnd prepara
tions wore made to leave the next
morning. Mrs. Fnln wroto a nolo to
tho officer In command nt Chattanooga
(to send with the letter she bad re
ceived from her husband for his pe
rusal) asking for a pass for herself,
tier duugher and two servants. Mark
took tho missives nud went out to And
Daniel, who had just returned from
"Well. Danlotr
"1 be'n dar."
"What did you Icarnr
"J beam cverr ono talkcn 'bout so
Jers goen to 'do norf, nnd dcy sayd
dey was goon to Knoxvllle. Dey was
ma re hen 'n marcben all de same way.
I follercd 'n dey brung up nt de depot,
'n I sor ono train uftcr nnudder go out
full o Bojora Inside and baugon on to
do plotfo'm and on do roofs."
"How many trains did you sec go
"Dout forty hundred."
"Daniel," said Mark, smiling at the
figures, "you're nmnrc ns a whip. Out
you'll bavo to go right back to Chat
tanooga, nnd tnko this noto to tho com
manding officer with this letter from
your sick master to show blm. Tho
note Is a request for a pass for the
party to the Union lines. Keep your
wits" about you, and if be Is an easy,
going sort of a man. you might try to
get blm to put In three servant in
stead of two. At any rate try to ring
me in It you can. Do you under
"Reckon I do, sab."
"Can you rend?"
"A ieetle. Missis Laura leaned me,"
"Well, read tho pass he Buy give
jm and ask blm to fix It so that it
will include me as a servant. Bat yon
most use your Judgment."
Danlol drove again to Chattanooga.
Mark watted anxiously for hla return.
Indeed so Impatient waa be tnat be
thought tbo negro bad been gone twice
as long aa he had when he saw blm.
drive into tho yard. Do at once went
out to tbo barn to meet htm.
"Any luckr bo asked anxiously.
"I got do pasa for misses and do res',
but I didn't get what yo' wanted. I
got a paper hyar. Mcbbo It'll do."
Mark took tbo paper. It was a pass
(or Thomas Qreeu and wife from
Cbattanooga to tbe Union lines.
"How did you get this?" asked Mark,
"I bab to wal wbllo folks waa get
ten passes. Do otQccr go out to do
udder room fur a moment. DIs was
layen on do desk, 'n 1 tuk bit up and
brung bit away."
"Well." said Mnrk, "It's not exactly
what I want, but ingenuity will have
to help mo through. You're a trump,
In tbe morning wben all was ready
for tbe departure two vehicles were
brought around to tbo door, tbe ono, a
two horse carriago, tbo other Laura's
phaeton, drawn by her pony. Mrs,
Fain entered the former with Alice,
Daniel being In tho driver's soak Lau
ra and Mark got Into (be phaeton.-
AU went well durlug tbo first ten or
twelve miles, wben Mark received a
tfteci' of, Information which seriously
(interfered with his. plan; Meeting a
coarfer H4iug toward Chattanooga,
wbo looked as It be night' be tbe bear
er ot some Important news, .Mark
batted htm aud aslted if he1 had, any
think from tbe front.
W U.1. -mMA 'hot.:tf thU aUKitau
and It would bo better to take an
other. They were not far from the
road leading from tbo Chattanooga
pike north to Anderson, on which tho
Blacks lived. Mark concluded to tako
this road as far as Andcrspn, and then
strike west with n view to reaching
McMlnnville on tbe other side of tbo
mountains. Mrs. Fain left all to Pro
fessor Ithett, In whom sbo had perfect
confidence, nnd on coming to tbo road
in question Mark led tbe party north
ward. Tho change of routo was unfortu
nate, inasmuch as It would add an
other day to the journey. Tbo depar
ture from tbo Fnln residence had been
delayed by tbo preparations till nearly
noon. McMuinvlllo was a considerable
dlstanco over tbe mountains, nnd
Mark knew they cotild not reach It
tbat night. Lie remembered that they
would soon pass the Slacks', and It
occurred to blm that It would bo a
capital place to pass the night, giving
tbcm n good day of twelve hours light
on tbo morrow to pursue their Jour
ney. Ills disappointment nt tbo delay
was compensated for by tho thought
that bo would likely team something
of Sourl and Jakcy. ot whom ho bad
heard nothing 'alnco he left tbcm in
tho Cbattanooga Jail.
At last they drove up nt tho Slacks'
nte. Mark handed tho reins to La urn
nnd Jumped from the phaeton Impa
tiently. Not seeing nny ono In tho
front of the houso he proceeded to tho
rear. The first person he met was
Jakoy. lie took tho boy up nnd bug
ged him.
"Arc you glad to sco your big broth
er, Jakey?"
"Air th' corn rlpo?"
Sourl camo out of tho house, bcr big
eyes glistening nnd bcr expressive
face radiant with pleasure and excite
mont. Sbo hnd beard nothing of Mnrk
slnco ho left her In prison. Murk
seized her by both hands.
"You una nlr safe. I knowed It,"
sho said, almost In n whisper. Sbo
could hardly speak for Joy.
"For tho. present. Sourl. thanks to
Mark nsked no questions then. Ho
knew that they wcro safo nnd at
home, nnd bo hastened to inform tbcm
nnd tbo father and mother who enmo
ont to wclcomo blm that be was with
a party who was unownro of bis true
character, wblcb they must not be
tray, and desired permission to stay
in tbo bouse over night. Then bo led
tbcm around to tbo gate. Daulcl bad
meanwbllo caught up, and tho twp
vehicles wcro halted In tbo road.
"Wo will spend tho night with tbeso
good people," said Mark. "They are
quite willing, and will mako ns as
comfortable aa possible."
Tbo parry alighted and tbo horses
were driven to the barn. Mrs.. Fain
and ber daughter wcro given tbe room
la which Mark bad changed bit clothes
wben be went through to tbe south,
and Mark was nsslgncd a bivouac on
the gallery, or in tbo barn, or any
other place he might select
Laura found Mark's uniform and
arms concealed beneath the bed.
"What do you suppose tt means,
mamma r she said.
"I fear," replied tbe mother, "that
We shall be murdered before morning.
These people are doubtless guerrillas."
Aa apology for a meal was carried
In to Mrs. Fain and Laura, which
they left un tasted, preferring a lunch
eon they had brought with them in a
basket After supper Laura came out
and begged Mark to bring Sourl and
Jakey to speak to ber. She smoothed
