T was plalin to me that I was In
the hands of that terrible war
time scourge of the south, i the
guerrilla. This band had been
made Up ii east Teinessee and had
moved out of their original Stapin jnig
ground to get away from their old
homes and filnd a better UIeld for pil
lage. iFrom the Cumberlind plateau
they could swoop down toward Nash
vi'le, Murfrecsboro, MeMilnnvIlle, Shel
byville. Fayette or lintsville and,
if chased, could easily take to the
mountains, where It was dittlicult to fol
low them. On one of their forays Tom
Jaycox and Pete lalliday hai got

several of tihe gang, including the man

me. The country in and about tlunts
ville was too elvilized for open assas
sination, and Jaycox, after the failure
of the attempt on my life, had pro
cured iny arrest as a spy. Then fol
lowed the plan to kidnap tme and force
me into a payment of money before the
tinal revenge.
We bivouncked where we had met
the band on the plateau, under the
troes that waved above us, their
sproutlng lea ves lighted up by our
campfire. I lay awake the greater part
of the night. watching for an opper

them turned and rude toward us. The
other hesitated, started on, turned and
followed her comnpanun. I noticed
something familar about their figures.
The coarnse texture of their jackets and
gowns and their unbecoming sunbon
nets were out of keeping with their
graceful carriage. "If these woe

gave me'a look, partly Implot-ing, part
ly commanding, that recalled me to a
senDse of my helplessness.
Ja(uel'ne began sailing about, keep
Ing time to Ginger's music, moving
hither and thither with uncertain steps,
as a bird will flit back and forth before
* darting away in its (light, or as a musi
clan will sweep his fingers over a harp
before beginning his melody. Gradual
ly the imusic grew quicker, and Jack,
gathering confidence, forgot everything
but the flance.
t Since the entry of the two girls into
the camp I had suffered one terror aft
er another in quick succession, and
now it struck me that in case Jack suc
ceeded in fascinating this lawless group
some of them, fired with a desire of
possession, would break through all re
straint. I had been wonderstruck that
two defenseless girls should dare to
come among them, and now I was stu
pefled that Jack should dance before
thdm and that Helen should permit her
to do so. But who shall measure the
strength of woman's weakness? Moth
er Nature had taught Jack and Helen
their power, and they went about their
work with not a tithe of the fright that
possessed me.
Meanwhile Jaquellue had drifted in
to the dance and was whirling, bend
Ing, floating, every muscle alive with
its especial motion. At times she
would lull, poise herself for a moment,
then, like a fitful wind, start again
with renewed fervor. At no time could
there be discovered aught but delicate
refinement in her movements, and now
it was her purpose to attract without
exciting her spectators. Stimulated by
frequent bursts of applause and by
the rapt attention of the men surround
ing her, she found her main incentive
I in a far deeper, nobler motive, feeling,
I as she did, the critical situation, the
I dread responsibility, for a human life
resting upon her.
What a singular scenel The ring of
ugly faces momentarily softened by
the sight of grace and beauty; the cap
tain, his sharp face turning with the
dancer and following her wherever she
goes; Pete Halliday, standing with
I folded arms, lowering from under the
broad brim of his sombrero, grinding
his cluld; Ginger's black face gleaming
o with pride at furnishing the music for
o his young mistress. Inspiring her with
his own inspired melody; little Buck,
standing between two lank guerrillas
in "butternut," staring at his cousin
and forgetful of her danger in his inter.
est in her work; Helen Stanforth,
L, standing apart, her strong face wear
ing the expression of a general who
r watches a cavalry charge intended to
turn a position on which hangs the fate
d of the day.
The guerrillas, not one of whom
. would hesitate to slit a throat at the
slightest prospect of gain, were watch

admiration, but with respect. Once

a stretched his arm, brought it down
wIth a backward stroke and sent the
a man sprawling. Jaqueline saw the
act and the approving looks of the out
.laws, who were In no mood to have
r their sport interrupted. The color left
her cheeks, but she kept right on, and
.the episode passed without further con
At a moment when the attention of
a the men had become riveted upon01 the
dancer Ihelen, who had been gradually
working tier way froam the group to
t wardl me, camne and sat down on the
log behind Ginger, where she was par
tially screened by him. Watching her
. opportunity, she deftly took a revolver
from her pocket and concealed it in
the foids of her dress. With her eyes
fixed upon the group about Jack, she
waited for a burst of applause, and
when it camne, reaching back, she drop
pod tile weapon behind the log at my
feet; then, rising, rejoined the circle. I
pushed the revolver under the log with
the too of my boot, then kicked dust
andl leaves over it. This accomplished,
I bireathed the most comfortable sigh
of relict I have ever drawn In my lif.
The whole aituatIon seemed changed
by that little dust covered combination
of bits of metaL. Stooping, I slipped it
into tihe leg of my boot and felt that
half the battle was won.
At that moment the setting sun came
out from behind a cloud and shot
lances of light throughl the trees, cover
lug tihe group-tile beautiful and the
ugly, the good and tho bad, the refined
and( the vulgar--with glded splendor.

Sitting down on the log so as to be e

An Unfair Parallel Between the

The New York Worldl intimates
that the alleged cruel treatmtetnt of the
old men andt b)oys in the Boer prisont
camtps in Ilermuuda will revive recol- ~
lec jions of Andersonville. That isa
most unfair parallel. T1hte British
governtment has abundant mteans at
its comunmnd to provide good food in j
ample (Juantities for thte Boors who
have bieeni captured and sent to mill
