XII.
When the immigrants learned that the
young people at the head of the line
were cut off, a wail of anguish went up
from the women, to which the frightened
children added their voices.
The three men with most reason to feel
discouraged and crushed by this startling
news, were (Jen. Greyson, Col. Leroy
and Mr. Costillo. but in the loss of their
loved ones they never for an instant for
got. the alarmed people whose lives de
pended on their leaders' keeping cool.
After ihe rear of the line entered the
Tass, Whirlwind did not dare to follow
up. In that profound rift his superior
numbers would avail him nothing.
They had entered a trap from which
nothing but a miracle could save theni,
and the savage chief had
110
knowledge
of miracles.
The whites must he destroyed in the
Pass. Kiihmond would hold them in
check while the Unca-pah-pahs finished
the work.
Deciding on what was necessary to do
in order most effectually to accomplish
his sanguinary undertaking, Whirlwind
speedily dismounted a score of his young
est men and swiftest runners.
The nature of the inclosing hills forced
the attacking parry to confine themselves
to one side of the Pass. Like mountain
antelopes the braves swarmed up the
rocks, emulating each the other in speed
and daring leaps. They were to tise
their arrows on the people in the rift
when they came up with them, or if rocks
could be more effective, they were to hurl
them down till uot a living thing remain
ed in the path of their whirling, thun
dering flight.
"It looks as if our hour had come." said
Gen. (Jreyson to Col. Leroy, when the
shooting and shouting in front had check
ed the advance.
Col. Leroy tugged at his long beard.
Like all the men. and the women and
children, too, after the hopelessness of
the situation became evident, he was as
calm in appearance as if considering an
ordinary problem.
"Do not lose heart," said Col. Leroy at
length. "I see one chance for escape."
"Where?" asked the general.
"In a cross-rift that cuts into the Pass
about a quarter of' a mile lower down.
Come, push on with all speed. I hear
|he savages back on the cliffs."
The order to advance rang back, and
again the cavalcade advanced. Following
the general's directiong the riflemen
watched the cliffs, and every time a black
head rose to view a bullet sped up from
the depths, and a fierce cry rang down
Crow the cliffs.
Vnheeding Col. Lero.v's entreaty to fol
low the party, he threw his Spencer rifle
over a projection in the rocks, and bend
ing till the muzzle was nearly perpendic
ular with the wall of the Pass, ho opened
fire, nor did he stop till every shot, was
exhausted in the magazine, and the foe
had vanished from the heights.
"Now you will surely come." said the
colonel, laying his hand
They fid push on, with Mr. Costillo,
who had been anxiously waiting for
them but they had not gone more than a
hundred yards before they came upon the
rear of the column, and found that it had
halted.
"Why do you stop?" asked .Gen. Grey
son.
The man addressed did not know, but
a young man appeared from under the
feet of the horses. He was breathless,
and ashy of face.
"Well. .Jack Muir, why don't thev go
ahead?"
"I came back to tell you, General."
gasped .Tack Muir, who, with his sisters,
Nancy and Mary, had narrowly escaped
being cut off when Bertram Leroy found
retreat impossible. "A great stone has
fallen into the cleft aud it is impossible
to creep under it or climb over it."
"IIow far in front is it?"
"About two hundred feet.''
"And between here and there all the
people and animals are wedged in?"
"Yes, General," replied the young man.
Gen. Greyson showed no sign of dis
appointment. His thin lips were set, and
there burned in his gray eyes tile awful
light of despair. Turning to Col. Leroy,
who again had been tugging at his tawny
beard, the general said:
"I will make my way to my wife, and
remain with her till the end comes. It
cannot be far off."
"First come with me," replied the col
onel.
"Where to?"
"To this obstruction."
"Willingly, if you say so. But there
are bright men in the advance, and if
they cannot go ahead we cannot help
them."
"That may be but first I want to learn
for myself if we have exhausted the ca
pacity of this place."
Past the men they pushed, and under
the feet of the horses they crept. Strange
that they should be impressed under such
circumstances with the stillness of the
horses and mules, and the hush that was
on the patient, white-faced women and
their children.
With much difficulty Gen. Greyson and
Col. Leroy reached the head of the line,
and they found the situation exactly as
Jack Muir had represented it. To advance
was impossible. Only a bird could sur
mount the rock that had fallen in from
above and wedged the rift from wall to
wall.
Mr. Costillo looked at the ponderous
mass of granite, and shook his head sad
ly. It was impossible to retreat, for
the animals could not be turned round
in tha narrow passage, and backing them
ountain
front the rocks loosened by Captain
Richmond's party could be heard thun
dering into the rift, with the roar aud
rush of mighty artillery.
As rapidly as the nature of the roadway
would admit Col. Leroy led the way. tak
ing care meanwhile that there were no
spaces in the line. He reached a point
from which ho could see Richmond's men,
and at. this place a narrow cleft, like a
great seam, cut into the precipitous wall
on the right.
It did not look wide enough for the
passage of a man, much less for that of a
horse but as rapidly as the animals
having the women and children came
up the colonel ordered them into that
seemingly impassable cleft. And one by
one they vanished as if they were being
swallowed by a huge mouth.
By the time the last liorse had disap
peared with his precious burden Whirl
wind's men and Richmond's had united
forces, and began the attack. The gen
eral saw them, and the calmness and
strength which had distinguished him in
the most trying moments of many a hanl

his shoulder
and gently moving him forward.
Geu. Greyson realized for the first time
how very imprudent this very natural
conduct was, and ho said to his friend
"The monsters that have made me
childless were in sight, and for my life I
could not resist."
"We must now think of the living,"
said the colonel, gently.
"Where does this passage lead to?"
"Up to the mountains."
"IIow do you know that we make any
thing by entering it?"
"My sou and an Indian—Halpali, one
of my servants—have been through here

if need be we can abandon the animals."
"And so make our.way to your place?"
"Yes."
'"Very well, let us push on."
was out of the question, oven if a greater
danger did not lie behind.
as
ffared," said the general.
"I will rejoin my wife.'"
Col. Leroy did not seem to hear him.
He stood looking into a black chasm
that yawned in the wall, not ten feet
back from where the great rock had fall
en. The geueral was about to speak
again, when, with a suppressed cry, Col.
Leroy darted forward.
"N\ hat is it?" asked tile general, re
straining him.
"The cave!" exclaimed Leroy.
"The cave?"
"Yes, the mystic cave of the Sioux!"
"Where is it?"
"Right before us, or I will say that
even heaven has forsaken us to our
fale."
"But you say you were never here be
fore?"
"Nor was 1."
"How do you know, then, that there
is a cave here?"
"My poor Bertram entered a cave here
with the Indian Ilalpah. The Indian for
some reason did not lead him far per
haps he was superstitious. But as I re
call what he told me I am more and more
convinced this is the place."
He entered tile opening that looked so
gloomy and forbidding it was large
enough to admit four men abreast, and
higher than a tall man could reach. He
could not see through the further dark
ness, but by the twilight about the space
where he stood, he realized that he was
011
the side of a chamber wide and spa
cious—large enough to hold a mounted
squadron and leave room for evolutions.
Col. Leroy hastened back and commu
nicated his discovery of a place that held
out the hope of refuge and sanctuary, at
least for the present. A gasp of relief
came from the people, and the women
who held children in their arms bent
over them and kissed them. Fortunately
the entrance to this remarkable place
was just at the head of the line, so that
there was
110
trouble in getting in with
the animals, even without dismounting.
By the time the rear of the column had
entered, the first comers had grown so ac
customed to the lesseued light as to bo
able to see on every hand for some dis
tance. Then the women and children
were lifted to the ground, and friends
grasped hands as if they had been long
parted, as soldiers clasp hands after they
escape the carnage of the charge in which
they dashed on side by side.
"Well," said Mr. Costillo. rubbing his
eyes and looking about him, "wonders
will never cease. Faith, this looks like
a page out of the Arabian Nights. We
were trapped, if ever people were in the
world, and when all seemed lost, tile col
onel rubbed the magic ring and his good
genii hollowed out this place of refuge
like a flash."
(To be continued.)
Still Sadder.
"It is said," murmured the musing
theorizer. "to think that every man has
his price."
"Yes," admitted the intensely prac
tical worker, "and it is a sad fact that
half the time ho can't get it."

The House emergency bill appropriating
$20CUMM.i for the relief of volcano suffer

tor the vote by which the army appro
priation bill was passed was reconsidered
and the bill amended so as to restrict
the provision for the sale of army posts
to those of Indianapolis. Columbus and
Buffalo, and authorizing the President
to use the money derived therefrom in
purchasing other lands in the vicinity
and constructing other posts also :o

bill was passed and then Mr. Stewart
spoke in support of the Philippine bill.
The conference report
011
the Cuban dip­
lomatic and consular bill was adopted,
the House conferees accepting the
amendment making the salary of the
minister to Cuba $12,000 a year, and the
Senate accepting the amendniMit strik
ing out the provision for $2,000 a year
for the minister's house rent and for an
additional consul. In the House discus
sion of the naval appropriation bill was
begun. The conference report 011 the
omnibus claims bill was rejected on the
ground that claims not considered by
either branch of Congress had been in
serted in the measure by the conferees
and the measure was returned to con
ference.
During the greater part of the Senate
session on Wednesday the fortifications
appropriation bill was under considera
tion. Mr. Proctor offered an amend
ment providing that
110
part of the appro­
priation made should be used for procur
ing disappearing gun carriages. This pre
cipitated a debate which continued for
two hours, and had not been concluded
when the measure was laid aside for the
day. A further conference on the omni
bus claims bill was agreed to, with
Messrs. Warren, Teller and Mason as
the conferees. In the House the naval
appropriation bill occupied attention
throughout the day. Mr. Dayton (W.

government navy yards. The debate took
a wide range at times, Mr. Rhea (Ya.
speaking in criticism of the administra
tion's Philippine policy and Mr. Elliott
(S. C.) presenting the advantages of the
proposed Appalachian forest reserve. Ris
ing to a question of personal privilege,
Mr. Mulion (Pa.) indignantly denied
statements contained in a circular fent
to members alleging that certain contri
butions had been made to his campaign
expenses. The conference report 011 the
Cuban diplomatic and consular bill was
agreed to.
Thursday in the Senate was chiefly oc
cupied with debate
011
011
the Philippine bill.
The bill providing for the erection of a
union railway station in Washington and
the fortifications appropriations bill were
passed, the former by a vote of 45 to 2-1,
and the latter without division after the
adoption of an amendment proposed by
Mr. Proctor, making the acceptance of
disappearing gun carriages conditional
upon tests. A conference on the agri
cultural appropriation bill was agreed to.
with Messrs. Proctor. Hansbrough and

the omnibus claims bill was pre­
sented by Mr. Warren, the conferees be
ing unable to agree on the Selfridge board
claims. The report was agreed to. A
hill to establish an Indian agricultural
school at Wahpeton, N. D., was passed.
In the House the debate on the naval ap
propriation bill veered into the Philippine
question, and when adjournment was tak
en the measure was being read for
amendment. The Senate amendments to
the agricultural approbation bill were
disagreed to, and the uill was sent to
conference, with Messrs. Wadswortli,

know of the benefit he has received from
this marvellous remedy. He tells his story
as follows:—
Gentlemen—I find Vogeler's Compound a remedy
above all others last year I was in a thorough bad
state of health, and could hardly dras one leg after the
other. I had tried dozens of remedies advertised to
cure indigestion and all its attendant evils, but was
rapidly going from bad to worse, when I had the good
fortune to be recommended to take Vogeler's Com
pound. I did so, and am thankful to' say it made a
new man of me. I should like otl-er people to know
its virtues, and how completely it knocks under the
worst forms of indigestion and dispqwa.

dy of the century for all stomach disorders
and liver and kidney troubles in both men

That St. Jacobs Oil always affords instant
relief from pains, after all other remedies
have signally failed? Simply because it is
peculiar to itself, wholly unlike another rem
edy. It possesses great penetrating power,
reaching the very seat of the disease. It
acts like magic. It conquers pain quickly
and surely. It is an outward application,
and is used by millions of people.

the ground floor." The time
has now come for men and
companies who propose to
make their money, not out of the sale of
unlimited quantities of share certificates,
but by taking from the earth its treasure
oC oil, and transporting it by the most
economic means to the best paying mar
kets. This is our purpose. For months
our
1 agents have explored varioiM Texas oil
1 Holds seeking properties whose product
can be most economically brought to
market, and options have been secured on
what seemed most promising. All the
money required for this"
preliminary- work has
been furnished by the
officers oft his company
and the co»t of drilling
the first well will like
wise be furnished by
them. Not one penny
will bea»ked orreceived
from the public until
our enterprise has pass-
Then transportation facil
ities will be needed and your
money can be used, but
not until then. Should our 1
borings all prove fuilures the I
entire expenditure will be at
our own
cost, and you will not
and cannot be called upon to
pay a single cent. This we
consider equitable
and just.
Conservative investors who
desire actual assets rather
than Inflated paper values,
will recognize in this offer a
rare opportunity for an abso
lutely safe investment, since
all the risks of the experimen
tal period will be borne by the
organizers of the company.
With such an offer, it cannot
be long until the limited a-1
mount of stock set aside for 1
this purpose will all be ap
plied for. If you desire any
portion of It you must apply
without delay.

There will come a time (probably soon)
after our borings become productive.when
a limited amount of additional capital can
be used in providing a pipe lino to the
loading wharf,
and steel barges in which to
float the oil up the Mississippi to the great
manufacturing centers of *ho
Ohio, Mississippi und Missouri
valleys, where it can command
the highest price as fuel. In
order that this need for ad
ditional capital may be
promptly met when the proper
time comes, we will now set
aside a sufficient portion of
the treasury stock, full paid
and non-assessable, which we
will reserve for early appli
cants at only 10 cts. per snare
and no remittance whatever
is to be made by subscribers
until the company's wells
are actually producing.

our own pipe
line and our own steel barges
we shall be independent of the transporta
tion monopoly and can market our pro
duct where it will secure the best prices.
Sinoe S barrels of oil are the equivalent of
'ton of coal, and since waterways furnish
the cheapest method of transportation, ft
is not difficult to
see how enorm

profits when we
are able to carry
our oil In our
own bargee to
any river or gulf
port which may
offer the best market. Figure it out for
-ourself. When the first well begins to
low and while we must Btill depend upon
the local market for our sales, your stock
will be worth at least double the price at
which reservations are now offered. If
subscriptions are taken after that date
they will surely be at not less than 20 cents
per share, and when our first Mississippi
1 barges are floated the
values will advance by
leaps and bounds, until
dollar signs will take the
