It is a curious fact that the little grand duchy of Finland,; through . its own efforts, has 'become one of the best mapped parts. of the .world. Dr. Supan, the German geographer, speak- 4'ng 9f the atlas of. Finland recently mblfshed' at Helsingfors, says that scarcely another country "of Europe has provided an equally effective help fo,r those who-wish to get a clear idea b'f their territories. Every map in the iftjaVof -Finland, has accompanying ex-J)laiiatory- text "and the volume of 479 TVttges is a graphic delineation of all the aspects - of the' country that can be Shown by the -cartographic art. The leading' scientific men of 'the country have contributed to make the atlas as accurate .as possible, ' says the New .j'o'rk Sun. .' - . ,,'Each "map isTdevpted to showinjf one particular .f acf. -r Instead, ' for example. bf one large, industrial map using a Wrfity of symbols ' to snow the, dis frTOijition, of various industries,'. then fs, series Of maps pach devoted to tb distribution of one special L branch o. industry..' , Another map shows the dis tribution of waterfalls which, are ol great' Importance in the industrial lift of Finland.

Other maps show; the distribu ioiVof population, schools, rainfall temp'orat uye,'-. ci'ops' etc. In 'fact, tb atlas" is very,nearly a complete picture cf - the natural social, political and in dustrial feature of the country; and .any. nation that would like, to have its -conditio; clearly', delineated as far as can be done by graphic "map methods, I would dowelLto. study the atlas of Finland and improve upon it . if it is :-hrddo soit -r . ;'..;.i;;, - Plckli!d Strict Dcaci. .

For u few seconds after the fall of the buffalo bull, the watchers on the dis-.. tant' ridge lay still, except that Dean," turning slightly, called to th! orderly , trumpeter, who had come trotting out atfer th troop commander, and was How halted and afoot some 20 yards down the slope. '130 back, Bryan," he ordered; .VJJaltb,1! arabulajnpes. iJvot4 fy Capt. Brooks that there are lots of Indians ahead, and have the sergeant deploy the men at. once." Then he turned back nnxl with his field glass studied the party along the ravine. "They can't have seen us, can they, lieutenant?" muttered the trooper nearest him. Ui'.t Dean's young face was grave and clouded. Certainly tho Indians rcted as though they were totally un tware of the preseuce of troops, but the more he thought' the more he knew that no big body of Sioux would be traveling across country at so crit ical a time (country, too, that was conquered as this was from their ene mies, the Crows), without vigilant scouts afar out on front and Hank. The more he thought the more he knew that even as early as three o'clock those keen-eyed fellows must have. sighted .his little, column, con spicuous as it was because of its wag ons. , Beyond question; he told him self, the ehief of the band or village so steadily approaching from the northeast had full information of their presence, and was coming confidently uhead. What had he to fear? Even though the blood of settlers and sol diers might still be red upon the hands of his braves, even though fresh scalps might be dangling- at this moment from their shields, what mattered it? Did he not know that the safeguard of the Indian bureau spread like the wing of a protecting angel over him and his people, forbidding troops tb molest or open fire unless they themselves were attacked? Did he not laugh- in his ragged shirt sleeve at the policy, of the white fool who would' permit the red enemy to ride boldly up to his soldiers, count their numbers, inspect their ar ray, satisfy himself as to their arma ment and readiness, then calculate the chances, and, if he thought the force too strong, ride on his Way with only a significant gesture in parting in sult? If, on the contrary, he found it weak, then he "could turn, loose his braved, surround, massacre and scalp, and swear before the commissioners sent out to investigate next moon that he and his people knew nothing about the matter nothing:, at least, that they could be induced to tell. - One moment more Dean watched and waited.' Two of the; Indians in- the ravine were busily reloading their rifles. Two others.' were aiming- over the bank, for, with the strange stupid ity of their kind, the- other buffalo, even when startled by the shof, had riever sought safety In flight, but were now sniffing the odor of blood on the tainted air ' and slowly, wonderingly drawing near the stricken leader as though to ask what ailed him. Obe dient and docile the Indian ponies stood with drooping ' heuds, hidden under the shelter of the steep banks. Nearer and nearer came the big black animals, bulky, stupid, fatuous; the foremost lowered a huge head to sniff at the. blood oozing from the shoulder of the dying bull, then two more shots puffed out from the ravine, the huge head tossed suddenly in air, and the un gainly brute started and staggered, whirled about and darted a few yards away, then plunged on its knees, and the next moment, startled at some sight the soldier watchers could not sec, the black band-was seized with sudden panic and darted like mad into the depths of . the watercourse, dis appeared one moment from sight, then, suddenly reappearing, came laboring up the hither side, straight for the crest on which they lay, a dozen black, bounding, panting beasts thundering over the gTound, fpjlowed by half a dozen darting Indian ponies, each with, his lithe i-ider scurrying in pursuit. . ,. ''Out,bf the way, men! Don,'t fire 1" shouted Dean.' And, scrambling . back toward . thipir horses,-' the lieutenant and his men drew away from the front of the charging herd, invisible as.yet to the halted troop and to the occu pants of the ambulance, whose eager heads could be seen poked out at the side doors of the leading vehicle, as though watching for the cause of the sudden halt. - . - - And then a thing happened that at least one man saw and fortunately remembered later. Bryan,"the trum peter, with jabbing heels and flapping arms,, was tearing back toward tho troop at the moment at the top speed Bi4aiatuuy txaortlrcir -backs. of His '!gray;ckM-KOTwy so . near time sergeant, hd jumped 'liis little otu?A -"front into; -ce" to.racct 4lie orderi;ihe'"prulries.n iront ei tno :foreniosit'i?4gon. tjjes.ighti of the dis tant ollicer and men tumbling hur riedly to one side, out of the way pre sumably of some swiftly-coining peril.-, acted like magic on the line. Carbines -were-'quickly bronghtto " ready,' the gun locks crackling in chorus as the horses pranced and snorted. But it had a varying effect on the occupants of the leading :wagon. The shout of "Indians" from Bryan's lips, the sight of scurry on'tke' ridge ahead brought the engineer and aid-de-camp spring ing out, rifle in hand, to take their munly part in the coming fray. It should have brought Maj. Burleigh too, but that appropriately named non combatant never showed outside. An instant more and to the sound of rising thunder, before the astonished eyes of the cavalry line there burst into view, full tear for safety, the uncouth, yet raarvelously swift-running leaders of the little herd.,,., "The whp.lodoz.en came flying ac-ross the. sky line and down, the gentle slope, heading well around to the left of the line of troopers, while sticking: to their flanks like red net tles half a dozen warriors rode like the wind on their nimble ponies, crack ing away with revolver or rifle in sav age joy in the glorious sport. Too much for Burleigh's nerve was the combination rf sounds, thunder of hoofs and sputter of shots, for when a cheer of sympathetic delight went up from the soldier line at the sight of the chase, and the young engineer sprang to the door of the ambulance to help the major out, he found him a limp and ghastly heap, quivering with terror in the bottom of the wagon, looking for all the world as if he were trying to crawl under the seat. CHAPTER IV. Away to the left of the little com mand tore the quarry and the chase. Out on the rolling prairie, barely four hundred yards from where the ambu lance and mules were backed into a tangle of traces and whiffletrees and fear-stricken reatures, another buffa lo had dropped in a heap; a swarthy rider had tumbled off his pony, cut a slash or two with ever-ready knife, and then, throwing a bead-bedizened left leg over. his eager little mount, had gone lashing away after his fellows, not without a jeering slap at the halt ed soldiery. Then, in almost less time than it takes to tell it, the pursued and pursuers had vanished from sight over a low ridge a mile to the north. "Only a hunting party!" said one of the nervous recruits, witha gulp of re lief. "Only a hunting party," gasped Burleigh, as presently he heaved him self up from the floor, "and I thought I'd never find: that damned gun of mine. : All this fuss for nothing!" he continued, 'his lips .still blue and quiv ering. "That green youngster up there in front hasn't learned the first princi ples of plainseraft yet. Here, Brooks," he added, lovfdly, "it's high time you were looking'after this sub of yours," and Brooks, despite his illness, was in deed working Out of the back door of his yellow trundle bed at the moment, and looking- anxiously about. But the en gineer stood Hpale and quiet, coolly studying- the flustered growler, and when' Burleigh's shifting eyes sought that young-'scientist's face, what he read there and Burleigh was no fool told him he would be wise to change the tune. The aid had pushed him in front of the troop and was signaling to Dean, once more in saddle and scan ning through j his glass the big band afar down the valley. "Take my; horse, air," said the ser-g-eant, dismounting-, and. the officer thanked hint and rode swiftly out to join the youh-g commander at. the front. Together they gazed and con sulted and still no signal came to re sume the advance. Then the troopers saw the staff, officer make a broad sweep with his right arm to the south, and in a moment Dean's hat was up lifted and waved well out in that di rection. "Drop carbine," growled the sergeant. "By twos again. Incline to the right. Damn the Sioux, I say! Have we got to circle five miles around their hunting ground for fear of hurt ing their feelings? Come cn, Jimmy," he added to the driver of the leading wagon. Jimmy- responded -with vig orous, language at the expense of his leading mules. The quartermaster and engineer silently scrambled in; the ambulance started with a jerk and away went the party oil to the right of the trail, the wagons jolting a bit now over , the "uneven clumps of bunch grass. ..... , . ,B.ut. ,onco .well up at .the .summit of thejow divide the cominand reined in for a look at the great Indian caval cade swarming in the northeastward valley, and covering- its grassy surface still a good mile away. Out from among the dingy mass came galloping half a dozen young braves, followed by as many squaws. The former soon spread out over the billowy surface, some following- the direction of the chase, some bounding on southwest ward as though confident of finding what they sought the moment they reached the nearest ridge; some rid ing straight to the point where lay the carcasses of the earliest . victims of the hunt. Here in full view of. the soldiery, but vouchsafing them , no. glance ncr greeting whatever, . two young warriors reined in- their lively ponies and disdainfully turned their backs upon the spectators on the divide-, while the squaws.'wilh shrill laugh and chatter, rolled' from their saddles and began the drudgery of their lot s-kinnmg and cutting up the buffaloes slaughtered by their lordsV "Don't you see," ' sheered Burleigh,? "it's nothing but V village out for a hunt nothing in" God's World to get stampeded about. We've had all this show cf warlike preparations for noth ing." But he turned away again as he caught the steady lock in the en gineer's blue eyes, and shouted to his more, appreciative, .friend,, the- aid-de camp: "Well, pardner, ' haven't we fooled away enough time here, or have we got to await the pleasure cf people that never saw -Indians before?". . : ' Dean 'flushed 'crimson at the taunt. "ITe well knew for whom it was meant. He was indignant 'enough by this time a speak' for hiriiS'elf, 'but the hid-de-. camp saved him the trouble.

"Well, sergeant, what'd he say?" asked the staff .officer. "H-e said would I plaze go to hell, sor," was the prompt response. "Won't he tell who they are?" "He won't, sorr. He says we know widout askin', which is thrue, sorr. They're Ogallallas to a man, barrin the sqivuvs and pappooses, wid ould Red Cloud himself." "Ilow'd you find out if they wouldn't talk?" asked the staff officer, impa tiently. " Tvas the bucks wouldn't talk ex cept in swear wurruds. I wasted no time on them, sorr.

"Then the quicker we skip the bet ter," were the aid-de-camp's words. "Get Us to Eeno fast as you can, Dean. Strike for the road again as soon as we're well beyond their buffalo. Now for it! There's something behind all this bogus hunt business, and Folsom knows what it is." And every mile of the way, until thick darkness settled down over the prairie! there was something behind the trooper cavalcade several some things wary red men, ycung and wiry, who never let themselves be seen, yet followed on over wave after wave of prairie to look to it that no , man went back from that column to carry the news of their presence to the little battalion left in charge of the new post at Warrior Gai.
