I believe that the last, story tliat I told ,vou, my friends, van about how I iV' i-mid at the V.idd'ng- of fTVc't'mpev.-ir the cross for valor which I had, if I nitty b aikuvf-d to say so. so Ion" '.tf serveil. Here upon the Jtipel u' uiytoat you may sef the ribbon, Imt tli" u.edul itself 1 keep in a leathern pouch at home, and I never venture to talce it out un less one of the modern peace generals, or some foreigner of distinction who finds himself in our little town, takes advantage of the opportunity" to pay his respects to the well-Unown Brigadier Werard. Then I place it upon my breast, and I give my mustache the old Maren go twist which brings a gray point into either eye. Yet with it all I fear that neither they, nor yon, either, my friends, will ever realize the man that f was. You know me only as a civil inn with an air and a manner it is true hut still merely as a civilian, liad yon seen me as I stood in the doorway of the inn at Alamo on the first day of July in the year 1S10 you would then have known what the hussar may at tain to. For a month I had lingered in that accursed village, and all on account of huice thrust in my ankle which made it impossible for me to put my foot to the ground. There were three of us at first old Uouvet, of the hussars; .Jacques Cegnier, of the cuirassiers, and a funny little voltigeur captain whoso name I forget but they all got well and hurried on to the front, while I sat gnawing my fingers and tearing my hair, and even, as I must confess, weepitig from time to thnea3 I thought of my hussars and the deplorable condi tion in which they must find themselves wh""7! flf prived of their colonel. I was not a brigadier yet, you understand, ij'tlioiK'h 1 already carried myself like ! . But I was the yo'imrest eulnuel . iu fcliu whole service, and my rOffr.enf U'u wiie aru ennmrn imwr.- U my heart that they s-houUi be be reaved. It is true that Villa ret, the senior incjor. was an excellent soldier, but htill even anxniff the best there are degrees of merit. Ah, that happy July day of which I speak when first I liinped to the door and stood in the golden Spanish Bun shine! It was but the evening before that I had heard from the regiment. They were at Pastores on the other Ride of the mountains face to face with the English not forty miles from me by road. But how was I to get to them? . The same thrust which had pierced my ankle had slain my charger. 1 took advice from Gomez, the landlord, and from an old priest who had slept that night in the inh, hut neither of them could dp mere than assure me that there was not so much as a colt left upon the whole country Bide. The landlord would not hear of my cross ing the mountains without an escort, for he assured me that El Cuchiilo, the Spanish guerrilla chief, was out that way with his band, and that it meant a de?.th by torture to fall into his hands. "IT IS I WHO CAS HELP YOU." The old priest observed, however, that he did not think a French hussar would be deterred by that, and if I had had any doubts they would of course have been decided by his re mark. But a horse 1 How was I to get one? I was standing in the doorway plotting and planning when I heard the clink of shoes, and, looking up I saw a great bearded man with a blue cloak frogged across in military . fashion coming towards me. He was riding a big black horse with one white stocking on hia near foreleg. "Hullo, comrade!" said I, as he came up to me. "Hullo!" said he "lam Col. Gerard, of the hussars," said I. "I have lain here wounded for a month and I am now ready to rejoin my regiment at Pastores." "I am M. Vidal, of the commissariat," he answered, "and I am myself upon my way to Pastores. I should be glad to have your company, colonel, for I hear that the mountains are far from safe." "Alas!" said I, "I have no horse. But if you will sell me yours I will promise that an escort- of hussars shall be sent back for you." I.--, would not hear of it. and It was in;, vi j that the landlord told him ' d'. ; ..$torl'. rf the doings of El I - fV,chi!o, and that T pointed out the duty which he owed the. array and ta j the country. Ho would not oven argue but r.tlk :l t.u,Uy for a cup of wine. I i orr;ftiy asiwd him to dismount and to I dritil: with sua. but he must have seen ' Komothinfr in mv faei. for h nhriolr hia i Head, and then as I approached him with some thought of seizing him by the leg he jerked his heels into his horse's flanks and was oil in a cloud of dust. .... My faith, it wag enough to make a man mad to see this fellow riding; away 80 piy'y to join his beef barrel:; and his brandy casks, and then to think of my five hundred beautiful hussars without their leader. I was gazing after him with bitter thoughts in my mind when who should touch me on the elbow but the little p; iost whom I have mentioned. - "It is I who can help you," said he, "I am myself traveling south." I put icy arms about him and as my ankle gava way at the same moment we nearly rolled upon the ground to gether. "Get me to Pastores," I cried, "and you shall have a rosary of golden beads." I had taken one from the con vent of Kpiritu Sancto. It shows how necessary it is to take what you can when you are upon a campaign, and how the most unlikely things may be come useful, , . "I wiil take yon," said he, in very ei-, ccllcnt French, "not because I hope for any reward, but because it is my way alwaj's to do what I can to serve .my countryman, and that is why I am so beloved wherever I go." With that he led aic down to th vniccre to an old cowhouse in which we found a tumble down sort of diligence such a-i tuty ivll'inn earlv in .this ceuturv .be--,vnrir. - - - , ' I, lages. There were three old niuk-s, too, "ione of which were htrong enough to carry a tuan, but together they Plight draw the coach. The bijfht of their gaunt rib and spavined legs gave me more delight ? than the whole two hundred and twenty hunters of the emperor which I have seen in their stalls at Fontainebleau. Ia ten minutes the owner was harnessing them into the coach, with no very good will, however, for he was in mortal dread of this terrible Cuehillo. It was only by promising hjin riches in this world, while the priest threatened him with damnation in the next, that we at last got him 6afely upon the box with the reins between his fingers. Then he was in s"ch a hurry to get oil out of fear lest we should find ourselves in the dark in the pusses, 'that he hardly gave mo time to renew my vows to the innkeeper's daughter. I cannot at this moment recall her name, but wc wept together as we parted, "and I can re member that she was a .very beautiful woman. You will understand, my friends, that when a man like me, who has fought the men and kissed the women in fourteen separate kingdoms, gives a word of praise to the one or the other it has a little meaning of its own. The little priest had seemed a trifle grave when we kissed good-bye, but he 60on proved himself ihe best of com panions in the diligence. All the way he amused me with tales of his little parish up in the mountains and I in my. turn told him stories about the cam), but my faith I had to pick my Steps, for when I said a word too much h'i would fidget in his seat and hia face would show the pain .that I hud Riven him. And of eonie it is not the ot of a gcntiemaii to talk iu afiytli'm"? but" a "proper manner to a religious man. though with all t; ,e en re in Uie World one's words may pet oitt of hand sometimes. Lie had come from the north of Spain, as he told me, and was going to see his mother in a village of Estremadura, and as he spoke about her little peasant home, and her joy in seeing him, it brought my mother so vividly to my thoughts that tho tears started to my eyes. In his simplicity he showed me the little gifts which he was taking to her, and so kindly was his manner that I could readily believe him when he said that he was loved wherever he went. He examined my own uniform with as much curiosity as a chUd, admiring the plume of my busby and passing his fingers through the sable with which my dolman was trimmed. He drew my sword, too, and then when I told him how many men I had cut down with it, and set mv fingers on the notch made by the shoulder bone of the Russian emperor's aide-de-camp, he shuddered and placed the weapon under the leathern cushion, declaring that it made him sick to look at it. Well, we had been rolling and creak ing on our way whilst this talk had been going forward, and as we reached the base of the mountains we could hear the rumbling of cannon far away upon the right. This came from Messena who was, as I knew, besieging Cindad Eodrigo. There was nothing I should have wished better than to have gone straight to him, for he was the best Jew that I have heard of since Joshua's time, and if you are in sight of his beaky nose and bold, black eyes you are not likely to miss much of what is going on. Still a siege is always a poor sort of a pick-and-shovel business, and there were better prospects with my hussars in front of tho English. Every mile that passed my heart grew lighter and lighter until I found myself shouting and singing like a young en sign fresh from Saint Cyr, just to think of seeing all my line horses and my gal lant fellows once more. As we penetrated the mountains the road grew rougher and the pass more savage. At first we met a few mule teers, but now the whole country se,em;d deserW, which is not to be wondered at vvhcu yon think that the Freueh, the English and the guerrilhw had each in turn had eottnwmd over .'t N bleak aad wild was it, one vreai. brown wrinkled cliff succeeding anoth er, and the pass growing narrower u.nu narrower, tliat I ceased to look out, but sat in silence thhiking of this and that, of women whom I hud Ijvcu utid of horses which I had handled. I was suddenly brought back from my dreams, however, by observing the difficulties of my companion, who was trying with a sort of bradawl which he had drawn out to bore a hole throush the leathern strap which held up hij water flask. As he worked with twitch ing fingers the strap escaped his grasp and the wooden bottle fell at my fc-et. I stooped to pick it up, and as I did so the priest silently leaped upon my shoulders and drove his bradawl into my eye. My friends, I am, as you know, a man steeled to face every danger. "When one has served from the siege of Genoa to that last fatal day of Waterloo, end has had the special medal, which I .keep at home in a leathern pouch, one can afford to confess when one . is frightened. It may console some of you when your own nerves play you tricks to remember that you have heard even me, Brigadier Gerard, say that I have been sccred. And besides my terror at this horrible attack, and the maddening pain of my wound, there was a sudden feeling of loathing such as you might feel were some filthy tarantula to strike its fangs into, you. I clutched tho creature in both, hands and hurling him onto the floor of the coach I stamped on him with my heavy boots. He had drawn a pistol from the ''rout of his soutane, but 1 kicked it out oi his hand, and ay.ru I fell .with my knees on Iris chest. Then for THEN HE SCBKAMED HORKIBLY. sword which he had so cunningly con cealed. My hand had just lighted upon it, and I was dashing the blood from my face to see where he lay that I might transfix him, when the whole coach turned over upon its side, and my weapon was jerked out of my grasp by the shock. Before I could reeover myself the door was burst open and I was dragged by the heels on to the road. CHAPTREilL But even as I was torn out onto the flint stones and realized that thirty ruflians were standing around me, I wq filled with joy. for nf1.!! bad k& l j MUtr- Two San Francisco grocers Ring Bros, and T.

You see for yourself by this pucker and scar socket and ball, but it was only at that moment when I was dragged from the coach that I understood that my sight was not gone forever.
