Before him he held an open D Bible, but he was not reading. His head was uncovered. His beard was lifted. His eyes closed in prayer. Be side him knelt Squaw Charley, with hands pressed together, as If reverent, with sluuilders bent lower than their wont, with shifting, downward look. North of the barracks on the road that led from the steamer landing the two miu met In the eany nours to say goodby. Swift on the first hint of coming trouble the evangelist had made ready for his long journey to the west. Shad rach was shod, his master fitting the plates to the shaggy hoofs. The run ners were taken from the green box and replaced by the red wheels. Can ned food, salted meat, hard tack and forage were boxed or sacked at the sutler's. The harness was greased. A new nail was driven home through the base of the sagging cross. During these preparations the post joined in an effort to damp the aged preacher's hopes and to check his go ing, lie was needed at Braunou, they said, so that the regiment could be rid of Matthews. His belief that he could talk peace terms to the hostiles was ludicrous. As for the Jamieson women, they were dead or they would have been returned long since to save .,, ..,, , , , the four condemned from hanging.

He might be able, though alone and unarmed, to pass them and reach the coulees beyond, but he would only fall into the murderous clutches of the savages swarming there. David Bond smiled when they ar gued. His faith was as firm as the bluffs that ramparted the fort, and his old heart was unafraid. With him against the rest ranged two men- Robert Fraser and young Jamieson They believed, as he did, that, know- we whbuu ami humus menus among the Sioux, he would be in no peril; that by now the captive mother and daughter were on American ground again and would be given over to his care more readily than to an other's; that the arrival of troops be fore the enemy's camp would be fraught with risk for the defenseless two and that an attempt to take thorn by force would be their death signal. Colonel Cutmu'.ngs was harrowed by Jnmieson's mollis of anguish and ill ness and angeriil by the indifference and dawdling ( the captors In tho face of his demand and threat. His heart was set upon punishment now, not treaty. He felt that he was being played with, and he longed to find the red Sioux and thrash thoin soundly. A word about tho evangelist's trip put him out of patience. He regarded It as futile and rash. Vet he did not for bid It. He dared not, for there was Jamleson's old-young face and whiten ing bead and a bidden spark of hope that would not die. He owed It to his conscience and po sition, however, to discourage David Bond. "There will be sharp fighting this summer." he told him. "A hun dred good men UUc you couldn't stop It The cause lies too deep, and It is too well founded. In the matter of the women you will also f nil. They did not come as the price of four chiefs. Will they come because you ask for thcui politely? They won't. And you will be slaughtered."

"The Indians know me. I am their friend. I have spent my life with them, taught them, advised, converted. What Is all my lubor worth, colonel, If I cannot go among them In times of distress?" "Worth this," said the colonel, "that you should know when to use your common sense. I tell you, you will meet with treachery. Friend or no friend, this year the Indians are hunt ing scalps." "I put my trust in God," murmured David Bond. "Don't put your trust in redskins," retorted Cummlngs crossly. Whereupon he tramped away. "Waste of breath nothing else," he declared to his wife. "I'm clean put out with the old fellow. He's daft on going. Now, why doesn't he stay here Instead of sticking his throat to the knife? There's plenty to do; but, no, off he must rush on a wild goose chase. Well, he'll have one, mark that! He's either ripe for an Insane asylum or he'a a religious adventurer and I'm hanged If I know which!" It was the bluster that covers an aching wound; that Is a vent for out raged helplessness. And David Bond understood. When he asked leave to address the stockade the commanding officer will- lingly consented. The attitude of the hostages on that occasion startled and . disturbed the whole post, for the evan- ?, 1 6 , c ? the Cottonwood grove across the river. ffryMa- mlrU- nn I . .t He asked the braves for messages to i . . . , .. L It "V 1 J bui ujj une uiier me inner irum wnere he had found them grouped In the sun before the council tent and strolled in solently to their lodges. Soon he was discoursing to empty space and to a line of squaws who threw him malig nant glances and jeered at him. He left, surprised, saddened, but unshaken. Impudence, bold hatred and defiance these were following the smoke from Medicine mountain. They formed a cue that pointed to one fact the pris oners were disappointed. They had been expectmK not pence nn(1 reserva. tlon life, but freedom and battle, Davld Bon(1 felt a double .., tnr i h.s mll(,b dPnnrtr( n,i m Bprvw among tne gathering war bands. He nastencd nis few remaining tasks and eet the day for the start. Now the day was come. His farewells had been said at the shack and at headquarters. Breakfast over and Sliadrach put to the shafts, he would take his way up the river. But first there must be laid upon Squaw Chartey a final and sol emn charge. The prayer finished, he put out a band and touched the Indian. Then he opened his tear blurred eyes and look ed at him. bis face softening nnd work ing. Squaw Charley did not budge. His palms were still pressed tight II blinked at the wagon bed. "Charles," said the evangelist ear DPRtly, "yen and T love the little family over yonder. They nave been good and kind. I want you to watch over them while I am gone and be faithful to them. The father is crippled nnd weak, and he has no friends. Charles, you must be a friend to him and to the plrls. Xo matter what happens, do not fall them. There will be another guard ing. Guard with him. Something may call him away. Some one may kill him. Take bis place. If danger comes tell of It at the fort. Do you promise. Charles? Do you promise?" lie lean ed forward, entreating. The outcast moved from side to side uneasily. "Promise, promise!" said David Bond. "You must give tip anything the Fleisher Yarns is the cardinal yarn qualities REIBHER'S for them, even your life. Remember that even your life. I have told you often, and you have not forgot, 'Great er love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.' " Again the Indian moved uneasily. "'For his friends,'" repeated the evangelist. "Ah, they have been your friends!" no put his fingers beneath Squaw Charley's chin and lifted it. The two looked long Into each other's eyes. Then they arose and pnrted. Later when the last buckle of Shad rach's harness was fixed David Bond climbed to the seat and took up the reins. A score of troopers about the head of the white horse stepped aside and formed a little lane. Here and there a man reached up. Here and there, too, were awkward attempts at wit. "Hope y' 'vo made yer will, par son," called one. "Look out them locks o' yourn don't go t' trick out some big buck," admonished a second. "Good by," cried a third, saluting with great formality. "Tell ol' St. Peter be'll git a bunch of us some time this summer." To all the evangelist returned his blessing. ' The Interpreter shoved forward through the growing crowd and made a show of friendliness. "Gran'pa," he said, "you're pritty game, all right. Most old war bosses like you'd be stayln' home and enjoyln' their pen sion." David Bond threw up his head re sentfully. "Pension," ho said, and shot a searching look into Matthews' face. "I am not a man who sells his principles for money. What I give to my country I give free." The crowd cheered him, swinging their caps. Then there was a hush. A shrunken figure was hurrying up, stretching out thin hands to detain him. No one scoffed now, but one stout trooper put an arm about Jamieson to steady him while be talked. "Mr. Bond, the colonel thinks I oughtn't to go with you. no wants me to wait for the ambulance. But lie's foollne he's foollns.

The gray head dropped to the trooper's shoulder. "Jamieson," said the evangelist, "if God spares my life I shall meet your mother and sister. I shall cheer them and help them. I believe I shall save them. If they are given to me, I shall come straight back. Do not go with the command. Stay behind, Jamieson, I'll bring them to you." "I'll stay, then. I believe" The preacher smiled down and to every side. Then he clucked to Shad- rach. The tugs straightened. The wagon rolled slowly out of the post. The sunlight shone upon the green box and the red wheels and upon the stanch old driver, who never once looked back. Above, emblem of the sublime Martyr, Bagged the high board cross. CHAPTER XXI. U XDER the cottonwoods that shadowed the landing place tne clematis trailed Its tufts of fluffy gray; a cluster of windfiowers nodded, winking their showy blue eyes; birds whisked about to fetch straws and scraps for their building, and the grass, bright green, but stubby, wore a changing spatter work of sun and leaf. Marylyn let drop her bonnet and the cow horn that hung by a thong to her wrist. Then, with folded hands, she looked up nnd around her, sniffing the warm air In delight. The Texas home had nerer offered such a lovely retreat There the arid mesa had grown thorny mesqultc, scraggled cypress or stunted live oak for a shade. Band bad whirled ceaselessly before a high, hot wind. No flowers had bloomed but the pale toadflax and the prickly pear, nnd be side the salt lakes of that almost wa terless waste had nested only the vul ture. But this! It was like the blossom strewn plain that burst upon them as, desert wearied, they traveled Into cen tral Texas; like the glimpses of April j woodland In the. Upper and Lower Cross Timbers. It made generous re turn for the long, merciless winter. More In one glance, In one breath. It wept away a whole winter of hateful memories. She caught up bonnet and bora and chose a seat close to the river. Before her was a gap In the knotted grape vine heaps that clung along the brink of the bank. Through It. veiled only by some tendrils that swung wishfully across, lay a wedgelike vista of mud dy water, bottom land, bluff and sky. The midmornlng sun glinted upon the treacherous current upon the wet grass of the bottom land, upon the green- brown bluff nnd the Catling at Its top, upon the far. carving azure of the sky. Against the dazzle, her blue eyes winked harder than the breeze tossed anemones. Stretching oat upon her back, she rested them la the shifting canopy of foliage. A startled kingbird flashed past her, coming from a tree by the eat She got up aad saw a maa in uniform standing near. lie was a young man, with a flashed face and wildly rum pled hair. In one hand he held a tss- aeled hat and in the other a rifle. He leaned forward from behind a bull be fry bush, and hla look was gnCtHy eager and admiring. Aa startled as the kingbird, she grasped the cow bora aad lifted it to her lips. Bat she did not blow a warn leg. The uniform retreated In cowardly baste, the taseekd hat lowered, and the eyes beseerhed. A moment Thea the maa smOed aad shook his hat at her eogalshiy.

"My, my!" she said. "Bears! Indians is bad enough." Sho peered into the long heaps of tangled grapevine. "Oh, now!" he exclaimed self accus ingly. He whipped a knee with the hat. "Now, I've gone and scared you! Say, honest! There Isn't a bear in a hundred miles. I'd stake my stupid head on it." "But Golden" she began. "Goldenhalr?" He smiled again, by way of entreaty. "Why, Goldenhalr is i-you." She clapped on her bonnet in a little flurry, pulling It down to hido the last yellow wisp. Misunderstanding the action, he be gan to plead. "Oh, don't go; please don't go! I've wanted to meet you for months and mouths. I've heard so much about you. Lounsbury told me." She gave him a quick look from un der the bonnet's rim. "Mr. Louns bury," she repeated and stiffened her lips. "Yes." "He don't know much about me, I reckon. He ain't been to see us for months and months.' " She began to dig at the ground with the toe of a shoe. "Well-well"- he floundered. "He's been awful rushed lately needed at Clark's there now. I promised to to tend to bis business here for him. But he told me about you, Just the same, and about your sister too. Say, but sho is a brick!" She gave blm another look, slightly resentful, but inquiring. "What's a 'brick? " she demanded. It's a person that's all grit," be an swered earnestly. "That's Dallas," she agreed. He passaged in cavalry fashion until he was between her and the shack. Then he assumed a front that was cau tiously bumble. "Lounsbury's had the best of it," be complained. "He's known you from the start And this is the first chance I've ever had to know you." ONLY NECESSARY TO TREAT THE STOMACH Claim, of Central Figure In Recent Contro versy Is Novel. The new theory advanced by X T. Cooper relative to the human stom ach haa attracted such widespread attention that tho public In cities visited by the yoang man has been Joined by many physicians in a dis cussion of his beliefs and medicines. Mr. Cooper says that human health Is dependent almost entirely upon u stomach. He says that no dis ease can be conquered without first alleviating all stomach disorders. He farther says that most men and wom en of this generation are half-sick. owing to degenerate stomachs. And lastly, he claims that hla New Dis covery medicine will rejuvenate the cum an stomaca in w days. Cooper has been traveling from 600 city to another, conducting In each what he calls a campaign cf education. For the past year he has met the pnblie In the larger cities cf the country, and hla snceess has been phenomenal. Thousands of people hare flocked to his headquar ters wherever he has gone, and the sale of his medicine has been beyoad earthing of the kind ever before witcessed, Fosafbry the most fstereeUss; tea tare of the attention this roans maa has attracted Is what his army of foUowers. whom he has converted to his beliefs throagh his melciBes. have to eay oa the sabjeet. The fc4 lowiag statements are from two well kaown testdeats of Chicago aad Bos ton, respectively, sad the eailictasa cf these Is characteristic of Cooper's admirers generally.

This means a saving. 5) She stopped tossus. "But I don", know you," she returned. "Mr. Louns bury's never told me" "Well, I'll tell you. I'm Robert Fra ser, from the fort. That's really all there is to say about me. You see, I've only been in one fight that was last fall and I've never even killed an Indian." She pulled nervously at her bonnet strings. ' "You're a soldier," she said. "And pa pa'd be mad as a hornet If he knew I'd spoke to you." Fraser took another step forward. -"Pa won't know," he declared. . "Promise you won't tell?' she asked, blushing consciously. He cast about him as if to find a proper token for his vow. "I prom- lse," he answered, hat on heart; "I promise by the great horn spoon T ' "You're the first I-I ever talked to, she faltered. "That's good." ( "No; it's bad, because I promised pa once that I wouldn't ever have any- thing to do with a soldier, and now ! I'm breaking my word."

"We were," ho corrected soberly, "but the war is over now." "Maybe It is," she said wistfully. "but pa is still a-Cghting." "And Goldenhair's drafted when she'd rather have peace. Too bad!" He motioned her to the seat by the gap. "I can't; I mustn't," she said and moved a little toward the shack. "Then I'll go," be said firmly. "I didn't mean to rtrlvp yon out of here." He also moved toward the landing place. At that she assented, fearful of hurt ing his feelings. But she could think of nothing to say and pulled thought fujly at the grass.
