K* :4 CHAPTER V. Grand Old Jack. "I ha\e seen grand Old Jack rat tled, tor once." Captain EUinghain wrote hi* Mster from Front Royal. "We were opposite Tort Republic and the geneial. with a part of his statt. had crossed o\er the biidge into the town when the enemy appeared in force, with the endent design of at tacking the town, destroying the bridge o\er the Shenandoah and thus cutting off our ariin and getting in our rear. Jackson sent some hunted orders to Taliaferro and Winder for the de fense of the bricUe. but before these could be executed the advance Federal batteries had opened tire and their cauilrj. crossing the South river, had swept into the town and taken posi tion at the southern entrance to the bridge "You see. the general had not re crossed the rne and so he was com pletely cut otf. and we didn't know it. They do say he met the emergency with the most audacious display of nerve and presence of mind that you ever heard of—actually rode toward the bridge and, rising in his stirrups, called out to the Federal othcer commanding the artillerj "Who ordered you to post that gun there, sir7 Biing it over here.' It fooled them long enough to enable Jackson to put spurs to his horse and dash on to the bridge at tull gallop. "Three hasty shots followed him, but they flew harmlessly o\ or his head, and he reached our quarters on the north ern bank in safety. And was he rat tled? Well, at the moment of the scare I saw young Bob Lee (youngest son of General Lee, you know, who is only fif teen and left the unn ersity to join the "Stonewall" brigade as a private) going down to the bank of the stream to fetch up some water He had the big :amp kettle slung over his shoulder, ind 1 suppose the general in his ex citement thought it was a drum, for as he flew past he shouted out to Bob: 'Hi, there, drummer, beat the long roll!' "That was a close shave, dear Sis. But 1 believe—and so do we all—that our 'Stonewall* Jackson lives a charm ed life while he has this job of clearing ftie valley to perform, and nothing can stop him. Do you know what the Yanks call him? The 'ubiquitous Presbyter Ian." It seems like a wild dream, as I look back upon what has happened since you and I parted at Richmond. Our great commander, whom we were rather inclined to poke fun at in the be ginning and whose recklessness many distrusted a long lule after that, has bowled over the Federal commanders is fast as they could be hurled auainst him—Banks. Fremont. Shields. Milroy. with subordinates like Blenker. Sigel. Steinwehr and other able soldiers de feated and the whole upper valley re gained. "W by. think of it—in three months he—may 1 say we?—have marched. 1 suppose, (500 miles, fought four pitched battles and seven minor engagements, to say nothing of the regular daily skirmishes.

He fell in a moment of tri umph, and his iast words were, 'Vir ginians, charge!' I am sure his name will always be remembered and hon ored by the people of Virginia.

"Is it worth these sacrifices? Ger trude, in spite of all our successes I wish this nightmare of civil war were over and well over. But who can tell now when we shall be out of the woods?" A Stirring Story of Military Adventure and of a Strange Wartime Wooing, Founded on the Great Piay of the Same Name Port Republic, on the Shenan- doah, were achnned bj a startling series of maneiners. little understood by the world at the time, save that in a general way they meant that he "held one commander at arm's length while he hammered the other."

PUTNAM'S SONS iHC -stimnuic: successes of Jack son at Front Royal and subse quently at Cross Kejs and erate capital. Dp "I am going back home," said Ger trude EUinghain with determination. "1 long to see the valley once more, and I can do just as much good at Belle Bosquet as I can here, perhaps more, now." It was not because of the anxious outlook in Richmond, with McClellan's army almost within gunshot. On the contrary, that in itself would have kept her in the threatened Confederate capital had not stronger ties of both duty and sentiment drawn her home ward. As Gertrude read in northern nevvs papeis the accounts of the desperate fighting and of the suttering of Jack son's troops she exclaimed: "Let them send the whole population of the uorrh down here if they will, but they can never conquer us! When they have killed otf our men we will shed the last diop of our own blood Captain Kerchival West of the Union army ot southwest Missouri, as he read the account while alternately burn ing and shivering in the ague strick en camps of the lower Mississippi val ley around Corinth, thought in fever ish fancy that he could hear Gertrude saying just such words as these. Her hate, as he imagined it, was like his love—an unreasoning, all consuming passion. He felt himself ominously fortified with the double strength of hope and despair, for love is a flame that feeds upon despair and takes a lurid halo of glory most of all when lavished wildly and in vain. One sovereign solace he had. that he was wearing the blue and fighting loy ally for the old flag in a campaign sufficiently remote from the valley of Virginia. After all, fate had been kind to him, he thought, as he recalled his farewell words with Bob Elling ham, at Charleston—was it ages ago or only a little more than a year back? "All right. Bob. I only hope we never meet in battle, that's all." And then they both saddened as they added: "Who knows?" Who knew, indeed? What a tangled skein of lives it was, anyway! One thing was certain—he may have been glad he was not fighting in Virginia, and yet his heart was there all the time. Meanwhile Gertrude's decision to leave Richmond and go home to the valley was put into execution with characteristic impulse. It was a bad time for such a journey. That made no difference about her embarking upon it, but it did lead to some very com plicated and roundabout arrangements for the accomplishment of the trip. Her Confederate war office friends, for reasons essentially their own, de creed that if she went at all it must be •Washington, remembering Bull Run,' a bright talker, particularly with the had nervous prostration whenever "Stonewall" Jackson was reported in action anywhere within a hundred miles of the Potomac. For this reason it i3 probably historic truth to say that "Stonewall" Jackson saved Richmond to the Confederates in 1SG2—in the first place by diverting McDowell's army to the valley, in tne second place by marching fresh from his own victories in that same valley to join Lee in the seven day_s' battle around the Confed- in arpers Ferry. by way of Baltimore and Harpers Ferry. For the last named barrier, a Federal pass would be required, this to be procured at Baltimore. And to get to Baltimore, by water, of course, it was necessary to run the Federal blockade. But this would be comparatively easy under the plan agreed upon, by which Gertrude was to have a traveling com ivaQi^n—o invafarinus estiithara larlv vho knew the routes intimately and who seemed to be rather closely in touch with the executive departments at Richmond for one who confidently promised to arrange the little matter of Federal passes at Baltimore. This young person—she seemed not over twenty—was introduced some what vaguely as Mrs. Smith. She was well dressed, fairly good looking and men. Her self confidence was perhaps a trifle excessive but then this would not come amiss for two unprotected females abroad in Dixie in wartime. On the first stage of the journey over land as they stopped overnight at Pe tersburg Gertrude said to her fascinat ing roommate: "Mrs. Smith, I have told you what Vittle there is of interest about myself and my plans. I do so wish you would tell me something of your own adven- tures." "I don't mind, my dear, now that we are off and on our way," laughed the other as she saturated a handkerchief with eau de cologne and washed her face with it. "By the way, my real name is Belle Boyd." "Belle Boyd of the secret service?" "Yes, honey child. That's what we are on now." "But if they should suspect us after we cross the lines they would arrest and detain us, would they not?" "They hang spies," Miss Boyd re plied. "But I don't reckon they will get us. Of course I won't be Miss Boyd and you won't be Miss EUing hain from now on." A civilian met "Miss Page and Mrs. Smith" at the Light street wharf in Baltimore. He took them to a Federal captain, and the captain sent them to his superior officer. General Fisher. Belle Boyd, now "Mrs. Smith," stated their case. "We are southerners, general, and we wish to go south by way of Harpers Ferry," she said, handing him a note which the captain had given her. He read the note, looked at the pair with a quizzical expression and then nodded his head. "Very well, ladies. I will make out your passes, which will take you to General Kelly at Harpers Ferry. My jurisdiction ends there, but you will find General Kelly a courteous and considerate gentleman. Beyond that I can make no promises for him. you understand. If everything is all right, by Review of Reviews company. "My real name is Belle Boyd." why—you will be all right. You will have an escort as far as Harpers Ferry, and an officer will be sent this afternoon to your boarding place to examine your baggage." The baggage searcher found them duly prepared and no obstacle came up to prevent the girls from taking the westward bound train on the Balti more and Ohio road at noon the next day. Their escort was a flirtatious young lieutenant, whom "Mrs Smith" —newly widowed for the occasion—en gaged in an instructive conversation about Federal military matters, which lasted until toward sunset. The slow train drew up under the shadows of the frowning Virginia heights and heights of Maryland at the historic point where the Shenandoah river breaks through the mountain wall and falls into the Potomac—and they had reached their destination. Evidently there was a riot going on in the little shutin town at the end of the long railroad bridge across the Potomac, where the old arsenal and the engine house which had been John Brown's fort lay close upon the rail road tracks, with dwelling houses, bar racks and taverns straggling up the hilly streets behind. They held a consultation in the par lor of a "hotel" full of drunken sol diers and decided to go out and make inquiries of any one who might seem sober enough to answer as to where they could hire a vehicle to forward them on their journey. All uncer tainty was promptly dispelled—they could not get out of Harpers Ferry that night. Meanwhile they had discovered that General Kelly's office adjoined the place where fhey had been marooned, as it were. They sought out the com manding officer, who received them courteously, heard them with wonder ful patience—under the circumstances —and on the whole was quite sympa thetic. But what could he do? "I can give you your passes." said he, '•but I don't see what you are going to hire to travel in, unless an ox cart or a broken down wagon, and the roads are almost iiurnissahlp. PVHO for stajieb ve- General Joseph E. Johnston. hides. Besides, it is unsafe for you to travel without military escort, and that I have no authority to furnish. If you ladies were prisoners, now, 1 might send you through our lines under escort all right." "That may happen to us bffore we get home," whispered Gertrude flip pantly, though she felt like crying. "And this is hardly a tit place for ladies to spend the night in," continued the general, in his role of Job's com forter. "Do you mean that we ought to go back to Baltimore?" asked Belle Boyd energetically. "Well, you see, ladies, you are in the difficult position of southerners sent south. The present policy of the gov ernment is to send all southerners be low the line to stay, but they must be welkvouched for. I am only explaining the situation to you. I can't very well send you back without authority. Per haps the best thing for you to do is to hold out at the hotel until I can tele graph to General Fisher. My orderly will notify you as soon as I hear from him." "We will go back and wait," said Gertrude's companion determinedly. They noticed among the groups thronging the tavern a half dozen gray coated Confederates who had been cap tured the day before. One of these, evi dently an officer, paced restlessly up and down the room, while the guard kept an eye on him. He peered closely at the two girls as he passed them, and they returned his gaze with inter est. Gertrude was wondering if she had not seen that face somewhere be fore, when suddenly, without stopping or turning his head, the man dropped these words in a stage whisper: "Are you going south?" "Yes," answered Belle Boyd like a flash. At the next turn he muttered: "Take a word?" Another affirmative. "Get message to General Johnston at Richmond"—across the room again— "that you saw Captain Thornton here a prisoner." Captain Thornton! Then it was Edward Thornton, Gertrude's Charles ton acquaintance of a year ago last spring. "What shall you do?" she whispered Belle Boyd. "That will depend on what they are going to do with us here," was the non chalant reply. "I know this officer. He is an important man. If I can help him out I shall do so."
