"All right," he grinned cheerfully
"come along, then ; only you keep down
out of the way, and let me do the
sniping. There! now you lost me a
shot! Did you see that buck dodge
between those two rocks? He'll try
that trick again presently."
Olga came back, creeping out cau
tiously and finding a place sugnuy

Shelby barely swept his eyes toward
her. his whole attention concentrated
was occurring below. Some
thing was taking place down there,
but exactly what could not Immediate
ly be determined. He had perceived
men moving beyond range, dodging
along from rock to rock, mere glimpses
of dark figures, yet plainly enough
Indians. Once he was almost sure he
distinguished a white man, through a
rift In a gully, but the fleeting view
gained was not convincing. Never
theless he had no doubt but what
there were white men presént. The
method of attack was too bold, and
determined, for savages alone; It was
not the Sioux Idea of war. Besides
the one man who would have a real
object in this assault would be Laud
Beyond all question It was he who
was behind the effort, urged on by
personal hatred, as well as a desire
to gain possession of Olga. Shelby
wondered what the fellow might know.
Could he be aware of the escape of
Macklin? and that Pancha had ridden
forth in search for help? If he did
that might account for his desperate
eagerness to overcome what resistance
they could offer before she returned.
Yet probably not. for if he did know
the coward In him would cause him to
seek flight before he could be cornered'
In this place. It was far more likely
that he believed himself opposed mere
ly by Shelby and the girl, armed with
a revolve- or two, and having a lim
ited supply of ammunition. He saw
little peril in the adventure, and fig
ured that a quick, sharp rush, his war
riors leaping from covert to covert,
would win an easy victory. He would
keep up a steady rifle fire from be
hind the rocks, forcing the defenders
to keep under cover, and then sudden

"Yes," he answered without remov

"Don't worry about me," she said
earnestly. "You know what I mean;

He cast a quick glance into her
"Sure, I know you will. You are
a trump, a good pardner. I thought
that for a long while. You won't
forget what I told you."
"I'll not forget" ,
There was a moment of silence and
then she spoke again, a, sharp little
catch In her voice which she could
not restrain.
"Tom !"
"I I don't know what Is going to
happen. I I am not afraid, but
but It seems to me I I would like
to have you kiss me once more first
you only have once, you know."
Shelby turned his body about, leav
ing his cocked revolver lying on the
stone, and caught both her hands
"Lord, I'm glad to hear jou say
that, little girl," he exclaimed, his
eyes aglow. "I reckon I've been sorter
half afraid o' you. But I ain't goln
to be any more; you sure mean It,
don't you?"
Her eyes looked . honestly, earnest
ly Into his, answering him before
lier lips spoke. .
"With all my heart, Tom."
He drew her softly toward him, for
getful of all else. Then a rifle spat
viciously, and a ball struck the edge
of the parapet, sending a splinter of
tone flying past them,
j It was a long, nerve-racking wait,
during which they rested side by side,
Jntent on every movement below, but
finding little opportunity for action,
Occasionally they spoke, but generally
remained silently watchful. The In
dians kept up a desultory fire, and be
hind Its screen were evidently making
a change of position, yet so stealthily
as to be hardly observed. They ex
posed themselves freely enough beyond
pistol range, proof that they were ful

confronting them, but closer In the

ping a scalp lock from an Incautious
ly exposed bead, and again winging a
brave who recklessly attempted to
leap across a narrow opening. This
fellow dropped In the open trail,
wounded In the thigh, and unable to
drag himself to shelter, and soon a
sinewy, red arm reached out from-be-
hind a rock in an effort at rescue.
This was withdrawn quickly as a
speeding bullet struck within an Inch
of the outstretched hand. The In
jured warrior lay there twitching with
The minutes dragged Into half an
hour, the strained nerves of the de
fenders on edge. Olga was trembling
from head to foot, struggling to re
tain self-control, Shelby never relaxing
a muscle, or averting the steady gaze
of his eyes: Suddenly he rose to his
knees, a revolver gripped in either
"There's Laud now," he announced
She saw the fellow also, lifting her
head to peer over the low rim of rock
standing in the open trail, but just
beyond range. He held a rifle In his
hands, which he swung above his
head, at the same time giving ut
terance to a hoarse shout. It must
have been a signal, for Instantly those
rocks were black with half-naked fig
ures, leaping madly forward, with
rifles flung in air, and giving utterance
to fierce yells. It was a wild race,
but the steep ascent to the cave halted
them. The two above, reckless now
of exposure, fired as swiftly as they
could press trigger, straight Into the
red faces. Some fell, shot down in
their tracks, a few paused to reply,
but the majority began to clamber up.
Laud ran forward to Join them, roar
ing out his orders. He was in full
view against the snow-covered trail,
and Shelby swung his smoking muz
zle down upon him. To the crack
the fellow flung up both bands, whirled
about and crumpled into a shape
less heap. Shelby, scarcely realizing
the success of his quick shot stag
gered back, reversed the gun in his
hand, and struck with the butt at
the first Indian appearing above the
platform. It was hand to band.
A Squadron of the Sixth.
Pancha vanished Into the fog, wad
ing along the creek, and finally creep
ing out below the burned cabin. If
there were any guards left there they
were not encountered, and the mists
hung so thick at that early hour she
took few precautions to avoid them.

have been, for the fire still smoldered,
but the moment the Indians were able
to overhaul the wreck they would
discover that their victims had, in
some way, escaped. There would be
no charred bones, no singed flesh, to
tell of dead bodies consumed In the
flames; they would not even find
Macklln's remains. And Laud was no
fool. The truth, in some form, would
come to him at once; he would know
they had got safely away; nor would
he ever stop until he again found
them. And he would suspect her ;
perhaps had seen her face when she
fired that fatal shot Her only chance
lay now, before this revealment came.
She was cool, resourceful; had
shrewdly thought out every step. If
she was still unsuspected, no one
would stop her. She had always been
free to leave the valley. Often she
had taken early rides, and none of the
ordinary guards would consider her
going forth as at all strange. Of
course, the Hole was filled now with
strange fugitives Indians hiding from
the soldiers, suspicious of every white
face. These might cause trouble, but
she must take that chance. There was
but one way to save Macklln's life
the doctor at Gerlasche. Shelby had
told her so, and nothing else remained
fixed In her mind. Mother of God, she
would save him !
There were three horses In the little
stable shack back of the cabin. She
crept cautiously up" through the fog,
unable to see In the gloom, but lo
cating the animals by touch. One

She led the animal out, saddled and
bridled him In the darkness, and then,
mounting in the gray dawn, with a
prayer In her heart for help and
imiilnnw she rode slowly out Into
the trail. A fire burned In front of
the little house beside the falls, a
mere flicker of half-burned logs, with
fwn mpn hnverina- over It. One of
them started up, at sound of the
horse's hoofs and gripped a rifle. He
was white, a flapping hat brim shadow

his head, and stared moodily. Her
heart gave a sharp bound, but she

It had begun to snow, big, heavy
flakes, drifting with the wind, quickly
whitening the landscape. The slight
marks of the trail were almost Instant
ly obliterated, but the low range of
hills ahead were a sufficient landmark,
and she forced her horse Into a swift
pace; riding with her head lowered,
but with watchful eyes peering
through the snow curtain.
She was alone now ; free, with noth

The horse, with lowered bead, seemed
to feel the urgency, and plunged for
ward eagerly. Suddenly as they swept
around a sharp corner, seeing and
hearing nothing to warn of any other
presence In that solitude, they came
at full tilt against a halted column
of cavalry. Before Pancha could
even Jerk up her reins, a startled
trooper had gripped the bit, and held
her mount helplessly pawing the air.
"Well, what's this?" he growled,
tugging at the frightened animal, and
dragged half off his feet In the fierce
struggle. "A Mex! Say, fellows, this

A little handful followed her lead
between the sand ridges out upon the
open plain the major, a lieutenant,
the sergeant, and three men. She led
them along a slight depression, suffi
ciently to partially screen them from
observation. The steady fall of snow
had ceased, although there were oc
casional flurries, driving sharply Into
their faces. Overhead the clouds hung
low and gray. Hays swore under his
breath, half convinced he was be
ing made a fool of. Twice he started
to speak, but held his tongue. The
girl never turned her head, but moved
straight forward.

Hermit of Grubb Street Had Kindly
Qualities That Endeared Him to'
Many Who Never Knew Him.
Usually when one hears of a hermit
It Is to associate him with the wil
derness of some desolate place, where,
surrounded by wild nature, he passes
his time like the beasts of the field,
depending upon the fruits of an un
filled earth for his sustenance and to
a cave In the rocks for his covering
at night.
But the story of Henry Welby, the
hermit of Grubb street, as told In a
curious old work published In the sev
enteenth century, is of a man pos
sessed of wealth who retired to his
mansion owing to the bad treatment
of a younger brother, and who for
forty years was seen by no one ; neith
er did he leave his house until his
death, on Oct. 29. 1836, when he was
borne on the shoulders of the men
who carried him to his grave.
On his retirement from the world
he took a very fair house in the lower
end of Grubb street and had It pre
pared for his purpose and In such a
way that the three rooms In which he
lived enabled him to eat, sleep and
write without ever toeing seen by his
servants. His food was of the sim
plest character, and when his bed was
making he went Into his study. In all
of these years he tasted neither flesh,
fish nor wine.
On Christmas his table was loaded
with great cheer, but of It .he never
tasted, sending It to the poor of the
neighborhood. His benefactions to the
needy were great and his death was
sincerely mourned by many who had
never seen him. Chicago Journal.

Injury Caused by Premature Grazing
and Lack of Utilization of
v..,, .Forage Crop. , ....
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Range depletion is due in a large
measure to premature grazing and to
lack of uniform utilization of the for
age crop, investigations now being car
ried on at the Great Basin experiment
station by grazing specialists in the
forest service of the United States De
partment of Agriculture show. These
experiments, which have been con
ducted over a four-year period, have
been for the purpose of ascertaining
Just how certain range bunch grasses
are affected by different systems of
It was found that the yield of violet
wheat grass when removed by cutting
once in a season, at the time the seed
crop matured, was four and two
tenths times as large as when it was
removed four times in a season and
three and eight-tenths' times as large
as when herbage was removed twice
tn the season.
Native brome grass, on the other
hand, yielded six times as much when
harvested twice during the season,
but the yield from one cutting was
rhree and three -tenths times as much as
when It was removed four times. This
means In range revegetatlon that the
grass native .there must be taken Into
consideration and a system of grazing
used that Is suitable to It
The experiments also showed the
striking difference In water content

seed maturity, the water content aver

age moisture content of 51 per cent,
while plants cropped four times in a
season contained an average of 79
per cent of water. Early in the spring
the young leafage may contain a:

Is sometimes the cause of many live
stock losses in the early spring. The
green feed is sparse and contains so
small an amount of food substance
that it Is necessary for an animal to
travel great distances to gather daily
approximately 85 pounds of succulent
leafage, which Is an equivalent to 16
pounds of dry hay.
When the difference In yield and nu
tratlve value of the forage, in favor
of the less-frequently grazed areas. Is
taken into account, it Is clear that fre
quent cropping is an extravagant and
wasteful practice. Furthermore, about
85 per cent of a bunch-grass cover
harvested four times In a season Is
