Up the James rode Erskine, hiding
in the woods by day and slipping cau.
tiously along the sandy road by night,
.ircling about Tarleton's campfires,
)r dashing at full speed past se
mroless sentinel. Often he was fired
it, often chased, but with a clear road
n front of him he had no fear of
!apture. On. the third morning he
ane upon a ragged sentinel-an
kmerlcan. Ten minutes later he got
uls first glimpse of Lafayette, and
hen he was hailed joyfully by none
(her than Dave lanudell, Capt. Dave
(andell, shorn of his woodsman's
Iress and panoplied in the trappings
If war.
Cornwallis was coming on. The
moy, lie wrote, cannot escape me. But
he boy -Lafayette-did, and in tIme
)ursued and forced the Englishman
nto a cul-de-sac. "I have given his
ordship the disgrace of a retreat,"
aid Lafayette. And so-Yorktown!
Late in August came the message
hut put Washington's great "soul in

housand soldiers in Connecticut, and
tow Count de Grasse and a French
leet had sailed for the Chesapeake.
:ienteral Washington at once resorted
.o cauiouflage. lie bid out camps os
lentaitliusly opposite New York and in
plain sight of the enemny. lie made a
reigned attack on their posts. Ito
'hamheau moved south anti reached
the Dlelaware before the British
grasixped the Yankee trick. 'T'hen it
was: too late. The windows of Ph'il
Inlelphin were filled with ladies way
Ing haidkerchiefs and crying bravoes
when the tattered Coatinentals, their
Ilothes thick with dust but hats
i't.lmed with sprigs of green, marched
through amid their torn hattle flags
and rumbling vainnon. Behind foi
loweed the French in "gay white uti
forms faced with green,'' and martiai
music throbbed the air. Down the
Chesapeake they went in transports
anid were concentrated at Williams
hurg before the close of September.
Cornwallis had erected works against
the boy, for he knew nothing of Wash
ington and Count de Grasse, nor Mad
Atithony anod General Nelson, who
were souL hi of the James to prevent
esca1e Lmbo North Caroiina.
"T'o your gooiness," the boy wrote
to WhashitIgton, "I am owning the most
bea)4muii fli prospuect I inay ever behold."

face, but neither Harry nor Capt.
Dave Yandell saw Dane Grey-ngr
did Erskine Dale.
To ' Harry and Dave, 1Dane Grey's
absence was merely a mystery-to
Erskine it brought foreboding and
sickening fear. General Dale's wound
hiving opened afresh, made travelliWt
impossible, and Harry had a slight
bayonet thrust in the shoulder. Ers
kine determined to save them all the
worry possible and to act now as the
head of the family himself. He an
nounced that he must go straight
back at once to Kentucky and Cap
lain Clark. Harry stormed unavall
ingly and General Dale pleaded with
him to stay, but gave reluctant leave.
To Dave he told his fears and Dave
vehemently declared lie, too, would go
along, biut Erskine would not hear of
It and set forth alone.
Slowly enough he started, but with
every mile suspicion and fear grew
the faster and he quickened Firefly's
pace. The distance to Williamsburg
was soon covered, and skirting the
town, he went on swiftly for Red
Oaks. Suppose he were too late, but
even if he were not too late, what
should he do, what could he (lot Fire
ily was sweeping into a little hollow
now, and above the beating of her
hoofs in the sandy road, a clink of
metal reached his ears beyond the
low hill ahead, and Erskine swerved
aside into the hushes. Some one was
coming, and apparently out of the red
ball of the sun hanging over that hill
sprang a horseman at a dead run'
black Ephraim.
"Stop I" Erskine cried, but the ne
gro came thundering on, as though
he meant to ride down anything in
his way. Firefly swerved usidhe, and
Ephrain shot by, pulling In with both
hands and shouting: "Marse Earskine!
Yasstuh, yassuh ! Thank Uawd you'se
come." When Ie wheeled he cane
back at a gallop-nor did he stop.
"Come on, Marse E0rskine !" he cried.
"No time to waste. Come on, sub !"
With a rew leaps Firefly was
abreast, and nick and neck they ran,

Ersklne's bralin was working fast,
but no plani would come. They wogi~d

uirged Firefly on. The redl b~al fiqtn
which Ephraim had leapedI had goire
down flow. The chill autumn ar..
less was settling, but the moon was
'ising full and glorious over the black
)xpanse of trees when the lights of
led Oaks first twinkled ahead.
The - negro turned from the road
hrough a gate, and Erskine *eardl
he thud of his horse's hoofs across
he meadow turf. He rode on slow
y, hitched Firefly as close to the edge
of the road as was safe, and crept to
he edge of the garden, where he
(ould peer through the hedge. The
intl door was open and the hallway
ighted; so was the 'ining room; and
here were lights in Barbara's room.
rhere were no noises, not even of ant
nal life, and no figureg moving about
Or in the house. What could he do?
)ne thing at least, no matter what
mlppened to him-he could number
)ane Grey's days and mlake this night
is last on earth. It would probably
)e his own last night, too. Impa
lently he crawled back to the edge of
he road.- More quickly than he ex.
)ected, he saw Ephraim's figure slip
uing through the shadows toward him.
"Dey's jus' through supper," he re
orted. "Miss Barbary didn't eat wid
em. She's up In her room. Dat ud
:ter orflcer been stormin' at Marse
Grey an' hurryin' him up. Mammy
been holdin' de little iuissus back all
she can.' She say she got to make
like she heppin' her pack."
"Ephraim," said Erskine quickly,
"go tell Mr. Grey that one of his men
wants to see himt right away at the
sundial. When he starts down the
wath you run around the hedge and
be on hand in the bushes."
"Yassuh," and the boy showed his
teeth in a comprehenling smile. It
was not long before hie saw Grey's
tall figure easily emerge from the hall
door and stop full in the light. He
saw Ephraim slip around the corner
and Grey move to the end of the
porch, doubtless in answer to the
black boy's whispered summons. For
a moment the two figures were mo
tionless and then Erskine began to
tingle acutely from head to foot. Grey
('nlmie swiftly down the great path,
whlieh was radiant with moonlight.
As Grey nearedi the dial Erskine
moved toward him, keeping. ini a dark
shadow, but Grey saw him and( called
in a low tone but sharply:
"Well, whiat is it':" With two paces
uore Erskine 5tepltled out into the
inoonlight with his cocked pistol at
Grey's breast.
"This," he said quietly. "Make no
nilse-iiani(d don't move." Grey was
startled, but he (aught his control in
stantly anda without fear.
"You are a brave mian, Mr. Grey,
