?II.I. this unlucky wound
m A M ,i0vtT heal? Time files,
and I, who should be
up nud doiux. inn eagod
like ? tiger walklug back and forth
within the limits of Its Inclusure."
This was my complaint as I paced
my room one tuornlng shortly after the
accidental reopening of my wound. My
Impatience was not without cause. I
had gone south, hb 1 have sold, with
two objocta to Und my enemy and to
gather Information. I had failed In
Unding my enemy, but bad gained a
complete knowledge of the points es
sential to the capture of north Ala
bama und was carrying It to the gen
er. ' ? U the day I was shot. It had oe
? lined to me before setting out that,
after MulHlilng my military mission, I
might ?tili wish to continue my search
for my enemy. Besides, there were
other contingencies, such as arrest or
Illness, which needed to be provided |
for. I had therefore arranged that the
general'^ favorite scout should be nt
Huntavllle on the morning of the 1st I
of April to receive any communication |
1 might Und it necessary to transmit.
If l were prevented from meeting him,
I was to send u messenger und had de
vised n code of signals by which ho
i ii l): lit he recognised. The appointed
day was drawing near. I was not ablo
to keep my appointment, and there was
no one at hand to whom I could In
trust the message.
I chafed till I had u vhaunted my small
?tore of strength, then threw myself
on my couch. Little Ethel camu In
and. like a soft rny of sunlight break
ing through stormclouds, turned my
thoughts Into gentler channels. Shu
held In her hand a bouquet of flowers
which, It was easy to soe, ahe Intended
for me, but needed enconragemont to
offer. 1 dually Induced her to do so
and to admit that sho had been out ?
long while looking for them for me es
pecially. I trltd to unlooseu her
tongue, to Induce her to contldo In me.
but In spite of all 1 could do she re
mained ahy. and there was ever present
that awe she had shown before of one
who bad taken a life.
"Why do you look at me In that way V"
She made no reply, casting down her
oyes at my brown hand, which held her
"You mustn't dread nie because I am
obliged to light," I continued. "Theso
are wartimes. There are a great many
aoldlers In the land who think nothing
of killing ono another."
"Don't they?" She raised her eyes,
wide open with surprise.
"Of course war la cruel, but?but It
call* out much that Is noble."
"When they kill each other?"
What puzzling questions to come
from such untutored Ups! I was cast
ing about for some explanatory reply
wheu a sudden Interruption relieved
my embarrassment. A negro boy dash
?d Into the room, through It end out
of another door. He waa followed by
the white hoy 1 had noticed on the day
Of my arrival, who waa screaming:
"Doggone yo\ Zac; I'll break every
tioue In yo' eonsamed hlack body!"
The words were scarcely out when
be shot through the door by which tho
fugitive had vanished. Little Ethel
looked after him with frightened eyas,
evidently dreading a cutaatrophe.
"Who's that?" I asked.
"Don't bo alarmed. That's only a
hoy's passion. It won't amount to any
"He snys such dren Iful words."
"That's habit. He doesn't mean any
thing by It. But It's a habit that should,
I soon got her quieted, and she prat
tled about her dolls, her playhouses,
some pet rabbits and a nook In the gar
den where she kept them. Hof." singu
lar that war. which absorbed all about
her, should have no place In tier mind,
?mid all tho turmoil, the rumbling of
cannon, the tramp of men and horses,
bushwhacking, skirmishing, tattles,
this Innocent little maid was strangely
out of place. Her mother eo me In pres
ently and took her nway, 'earing thnt
she would annoy me. I waa loath t ?
part with her. No healing bnlin had
been applied to my wound so soothing,
so grateful, as was her prattle to my
fevered brain and chilled heart.
They had scarcely left w> when
Buck sulked Into the room, hin boyish
face as free from passion its If ho had
never been ruffled, lie had mode sov
?ral attempts to visit me, not wt*h-(and
lag that he had been forbidden the
room. Seeing tho coitKt ch ar lie slip
bvfl In unannounced and hega? r fire of
"Does it hurt?"
"My arm? Yes, It hurts Ron**."
?Tm glad yo* plunked him*'
"Why do you sympathize wit/, me In
Eead of the other? You have s*tly seen
e a few times."
This was too much for him to ex
plain. I could se that he had'loncclv
Id an admiration for me, but ?? could
sot tell why.
"What did he try to kill ye* *V?" ho
"Well, perhaps It was because my ex
istence annoyed him."
"What did yo' wont to kill htm fo'?"
"I found It Inconvenient to have him
?hooting at me."
"I'd like to shoot a man. t shot n
rabbit onco, but that's purty s'i.ull
game. Pop, he won't let Wo havo a
gun yet. He says I may havo one
when I'm 10."
"Buck!" called a voice from the hall.
The boy dropped behind a sofa. An old
negro woman entered and looked
To*r* BtielrT To* hidlu sothewnnn
Ye* maw'll spank yo' sho' ef sho cotch
yo' hyar troublln the gemmlen. Como
ont o' dart I knows whar yo' air!"
I was about to interfere, but a natu
ral distaste at giving away a fellow
, creature caused tne to desist.
"I thought I beam dnt chile talkln."
The woman stood still a moment, but,
hearing no sound, lumbered out of tho
room. The boy popped up from bis
hiding piacc as soon as she had gone.
"I like yo'," were tho first woros he
uttered. "Yo' wouldn't tell on a feller,
"How could I when yon are glad I
'plunked' my enemy? la that your

"BuckinghamI No; I ain't pot any i

"How did you happen to get that
" 'Cause I was horned tbar."
"Reckon 'tin the same."
I contemplat? d Buch for awhile with
oat hearing any of the questions lie
continued to tire nt me. Why not In
trust him with tho message? There
was every reason why I should not do i
so except that he was devoted to mo
and I had no one else to send. While
I was deliberating l.lb came In. sur
prised him. dragged him out of the
room and shut the door.
I beard footsteps ou tho veranda,
then In the ball, then ascending the
staircase, as of people carrying a bur
den. Tho door had evidently been shut
to prevent my seeing what was being
dono. For awhile there was a hurrying
to and fro, and I knew that something
unusual had occurred. After all had
boon quieted Buck, who had mean
while escaped from his dusky captor,
?lipped back to forbidden ground.
It occurred to me that I could draw
from Ruck the solution of the recent
commotion, but what passed under the
roof of my friends was uo concern of
mine, and I scorned to get It from a
mere boy. Rut I wished to test Buck's
?ower of reticence. Ten to one he had
been Instructed not to talk to mo about
tho mysterious occurrence.
"Buck," I asked, "who came to tho
house awhile ago?"
"Wasn't anybody camo to the house

"No, ho wasn't sick."

There was a sudden rustling in the

her eyea flashing Are.
"Buck, ler.vo the roomf" she oom
fnandod tn no uncertain tone. Buck

I was In no condition for this en
counter. A buzElng was going on In
my ear- a tingling sensation In my
limbs. . y* knees wero giving way,
and I won obliged to sit down on the
sofa. I looked longingly at a bottle of
brandy that stood on the table, but was
too proud to nsk for It. In a moment
Helen bad poured some of tho liquor
Into a tumbler and held It to my Hps.
I drank a reviving draft She put
her hands on my shoulders and gently
forced me to lie down.
"This must not occur again," she

V ON OVEIt.
LITTLE BUCK had stood my test
as to ids rctlceuce so well nud
I was at such desperate straits
for a messenger that 1 reHolved
to use him. Alter breakfast I waited
for awhile, hoping that he would come
to my room, hut as he did not 1 feared
he was deterred by the autocratic Lib.
I called Jackson and told him to tell
the hoy 1 wished to see him. I took a
Confederate bill from my pocket and
h&ndcd it to the darky, but he went off
grumbling thai be didn't "want no j
Yankee money, and tnas'r wouldn't
hah no Qlggnr o' hls'n takln money 1
from a stranger nohow." lie sent Buck 1
to me, who came In looking somewhat 1
astonished that I should take sufficient I
Interest In him to call for him.
"Buck," 1 said. "I have something I
Important to say to you."
"What Is it. Mr. Brandystnnc?"
"Brnuderstntie. Please don't make
that mistake ngaln."
"I won't, sho."
"Buck. I'm thinking of sending y?u
on an errand, hut It's n great secret."
The hoy's e ves grow as big as saueerB.
I looked at him for a few moments to
observe the effect of my announce
ment and then went on:

cost me my lite. You wouldn't tell,

He was out of the room and back In
j a moment with a Fluntsvlllo paper of
' that morning's Issue. I scanned Its
columns before looking nt the dato and
noticed this Item:
The main t>oily of tin; Yankees are marching
(mm Nashville to Columbia en route. It is sup
posed, to I'ittsliurg Landing, where thejr will
doubtlcts Join the Federal Gcncrul Grant.
Looking at the heading, I saw that
the date was the 1st of April.
"Now, Buck," I said, "get out your
pony; then come to me for Instruc
"Look a hyar, Mr. Brandy?Brandy
"Well, Mr. Brandlnstane, If yo' got

yank me out."
"You're right. Peach mo that sheet
of note paper and a book to write on -
that thin one; now a pencil. All right.
Don't say a word till 1 have finished."
I wrote a message In as Infinitesimal
characters as 1 was able on a third of
a sheet of paper:
Machine shops nt lluntsvllle In good order. Fif
teen to 20 locomotive*. Nearly a hundred car*.
No force In the town. To Ina east road runs

I put neither address nor signature to
It, os none was necessary, and they
would be conclusive evidence against
me If the message should fall into the
"Buck," 1 Raid, "mount youi pony

a pointed beard will walk out on the

thing to you."
"Will he?" asked the hoy. his ey<>8
full of wonder. "Whut'll he say?"
"He'll say. 'It's a line day.' "
"What. If It's rainln?"
"Yes; rain or shine. If he's the man
you wont, he'll any. 'It'a o line day.'
Then you must soy. 'Beckon you're

'Black as night.' Then he'll nay
'What's the word?' nnd you can hand
him this note. Now. suppose I'm the
man with the pointed beard and you
go through the dialogue with me."
I put him through his lesson till ho
hod learned it perfectly. Then 1 sent
him away with the Injunction that. In
case anything should go wrong with
him. rather thnu port with the paper he
was to swallow it. I rolled It Into a
bull und put It Into the lining of bis
but. QlvlUg bis little bund u squeeze
1 bade Ulm go. und be marched out a:,
proudly as If he had been appointed
military governor of Alabama. 1 had
no doubt he would execute his mlsslou
to the best of his ability, but he was
very young, and I feared ne would
make some blunder.
"What a fool 1 um!" I exclaimed as
soon as he was gone. "I should have
failed to communicate rather than In
trust so Important a matter to a boy.
However, I'll leave here tomorrow
morning, und. If my message mis
carries, by the time It's discovered I'll
be somewhere else."
Helen came lu soon after Buck's de
nurture and began to set tbe room to
rights. She attended to her work si
lently ami did not even look at me.
I watcbed her as she moved about, ar
ranging u curtain here, moving a chair
there or piling hooka on tho table moro
aeatly. She was n true type of a
SOUthem woman?toll, willowy, a head
set on her shoulders In a way to umko
an artist Involuntarily reach for a
brush. Her hair and eyes were ns
black ns night, while on her cheeks was
n bright color. There was something
on her mind. 1 could see that plainly.
I fancied If 1 gave her time It would
come out. At last she dropped her
work and stood looking out of the win
"What are you thinking about?" 1
asked, going at tho subject with
"The man you came to Alubuma to
"You would shield htm?"
She kept her eyes on the road, watch
lng a wagou that lumbered by. "1
don't know whether I would or not."
"You wont to know all about him?"
"In the first place you would llko his
"It might be -veil to be?ln with that."
"Then I can't begin, for I don't know
"Not know his name?"
"What Is he like?"
"Tall, well built; square shoulders,
which he throws back like an ollleer lu
the regular army of tho United Slates."
1 paused. She waited for me to con
"You would also like to know wheth
er his death would bereave any one?a
father, mother, sister, somo womnn
who hangs upon every word he saya
when he Is with her and dreams of him
constantly when ho Is away?" I spoko
the words bitterly. I was thinking of
"Yes. I would like to know that too."
"I can't satisfy you. I have seen him
only onco and then at a distance."
"Does he wish to kill you?"
"No; I don't bellevo ho Is aware of
"Singular," she murmured thought
fully. Then she turned and looked me
In the face. "lie has occasioned you
some groat sorrow?done you some
"You promised to nsk mo no moro
"True. I beg your pardon."
Another woman would havo pouted,
coaxed, done everything but asked
Openly to have her curiosity gratified.
Helen Stallforth waB made of sterner
stuff. She stood looking out of the
window without another word. I wait
ed till 1 was satisfied that she was too
proud to ask for favor, then started In
again with the purpose of watching tho
development of some other mood.
"You are heart and roul a Confeder
"And you will not excuse those south
ern men mid women who differ with
"Yes, If they do It openly."
This wns a cut at me which I did not
care to notice. "Have you ever seen,"
I asked, "men forced at the point of tho
bayonet to enter the Confederate army?
Have you ever seen families trying to
leave the south to Join those with
whom they alllllntcd shot down lu
"You ore a Union man, or you would
never talk that way." she Interrupted.
"I was born and bred In Tennessee."
"Yes, lu east Tennessee."
"May I not have seen great wrong
done and yet given my heart and soul
to the southern cause?"
"You may, but havo not."
Sho was getting too near tho truth. 1
must throw her off tho trail.
"I will Impart one more piece of in
formation with regard to myself. You
have promised to nsk no more ques
tions and have kept your promise.
You deserve a reward."
I took from my pocket a letter and
held It up to her. It was addressed to?
MAJOR JOHN BRANDER8TANB,

Union service. "I knew you were a

but I did not take It
"No, no," 1 said, "I will not tako an
unfair advantage of you. That evi

Wero I tho vei lest demon In Moloch's

But It troubled her that I should
