He was a. liouac cnrpontcr , say about CO

xxns Just at tlio noon hour , and the carpenter
with hln illuncr bucket In his haml was
\xnlklng xxlth his employer toward Iho street ,
where the carriage wna waiting The social
position and wealth of tlio t\xo men xxns noI I
tlcojbly illtrertnt. but as they walked toxxnrd
the rich mnn't * carriage It was apparent
that they vxcrc c < iual9 In friendship.

shade as tlio carpenter , after the carriage
drove axvay , joined mo nnd opened his
bucket , relates a. xvrlter In the Noxv York

"Nothing much , " smiled the carpenter In
reply , "except that xxo are under obligations
to each other In a little matter that hap

"Anything private ? "
"Not exactly. W-e saved each other's llxro ,

"Huh , " I grunted , "that ought to make
men feel friendly toward ch other , but
how did you do It ? "
"Well , take jour muddy feet oft thow

stuff and I'll tell you. "
Aa I changed my location the carpenter

"I 1ml got to be a spy of conslderabls Im

know that I had any' particular abl Ity In
that dliectlon. and 1 xyas intrusted with the
graxeat secrets by conimanllng | olllccts of all
grades lly 1SG4 I xvas probably the leading
man In my profession In the Army of the
Potomac , and I had beeomeiso well known by
reputation among the enemy that my useful
ness wa * getting narrbxxe'J down to a risk
that was anything but pleasant. My ofilcerb
were advlsod of It and they did not send mo
through the lines nearly so often as before
and then only on the most Important
xentures . I may say here that all of a spy's
.serxico Is not spent among the ranks of the
opposing army , and I' ' made many trips to
Washington on recret service , for there were
foes within as well as wlthput In those dirk
days.
"In November of 1SC1 It became necessary
for mo to go oxer to the rnciny and see xvhat
ho xxas going to do In theent of the union
forces coming somewhat nearer to Richmond ,
and , with pome doubt In my mind ns to the
jutcame of the Ulp , either In the matter of
'iiy personal comfort or the value of It to our
army. I slipped out one dark night and at
daylight I xvaa an escaped confederate soldier
looking for my regiment which I know was
down in the nfighboiiiood of Atlanta 1
couldn't find It of course , and , bslng a red-
hot sontliernT , I Joined the first company
that wanted my services , and there wasn't a
company In the entire confedeiate army at
that time that d'dn't xvant me and a hundred
thousand like me. I got along Ncry nicely
for about a xveek without finding out much
of Importance , but hoping to do so , xvhon
all of a sudden I xvas pounced upon without
the slightest warning and chaiged with being
the notorious spy. Jack Norton. I bad no
witnesses to swear to the contrary , nor could
I take refuge In an alibi , but there xxas no
proof that I xvas the py , and I xxas held till
an investigation coulil be mide
ARUUST AND KSCAPC.
"My arrest teak place one exenlng about C
o'clock anil by the ne\t afternoon txxo men
had been found xxho Identified me beyond all
question My trial was set for next morn
ing , and the chances xvere that by dark of
that day my darkness xxould bo perpetual ,
for spies xverc given short shrift. Still , my
llfo xvas worth fighting for , and that night
at midnight or a little before I made a break
and got a start of fifteen minutes. A young
fellow scarcely more than a child xvas my
guard , and ho xxas so worn and tired out
that ho could not keep hla eyes open , but
would noxv and then fall Into little cat naps
In ono of these 1 caught him and very
quietly tied his hands and feet. And putting
a gag In hla mouth covered him with n
blanket and walked awavwith his gun. I
headed for the rlxcr , calculating on float
ing and swimming doxxn It ns far as I could
before daylight and waiting ( or night again
tn finish the trip ,
In fifteen minutes or less after I hud made
my start I heard the long roll beating , nnd
before I had time ccnrccly to think the
enemy xxns hustling after mo In great shape ,
and It aeemeil na If they actually rose--out of
the ground to head mo off I hadn't on Idea
there xxero eo many rebels In the whole
southern confederacy , and I made up my
mind If I got out nllxo I would call the at
tention of the commanding general to the
fact that our side xvns making a miscount
flomoxvhcre. Guns began banging and hlnz-
Ing nwny , and I soon saw that getting to the
rlxcr was not to bo na easy ns t had hoped
t made It , though , nnd , plunging In , I swam
as quiet as I could doxxn past n crowd of
men at a bend Just bcloxv nnd a little further
down I passed a boat not a dozen feet nwny
by holding my head under water and breath
ing through a pipe stem which xxas about
ten Inches long. It was a rank old stem , and
the air 1 got vxos not pleasant , but It was
better than capture , nnd J held on to my plpo
stem for future emergencies. I nupposo I
must have gone halt a mile down ttiu rlxor
when I discovered that a line of boats xxas
patrolling clear acrcos , nnd that further
progress ex-en with my plpo stem's assist
ance , xxas Impossible , so I took to the shore.
* ONE HAD TO DIE.
"As It happened , the boats were so close
up that the shore Jint along there xras neg
lected and I managed to slip through and
get Into a field boyond. 1 hail gone about a
hundred yird * when , I ran slap Into a man ,
for Itxan pitch dark noxv , though the nky
had been clear when 1 started Ho thought I
xxcs a friend and cursed me for my careless
ness in frightening him , nnd then na ho hap
pened to touch mo again and found my
clothes xxct he * said something about being
the spy they were after nnd caught mo by
the throit. I xxas no slouch at that nort of
thing , though after a ticrca tussle In the
stubble and weeds. In which I prox-entc < l hs !
giving the alarm , he settled back on the
ground , and 1 fell ; that It xxould perhaps be
n Ung time until he could do mo any harm.
It was In self-deft mo. of course ; life against
life , but after that the night seemed to bo
darker nnd I thought I saw shadows and
hpird disagreeable hounds of gurgling and
could feel warm nnd aqulrmlng llesh In my
hcndu "
Tor a minute ho stopped eating , and began
to look dlaturbcd.
"War Is a dtoadful thing. " I paid.
"I should say It xxas , " admitted the car

rising a small hill about three hundred yards
from the rlxer , 1 naxv a light Just beloxv me.
I shied at It and xoeted away to the left ,
where after going about n hundred yatds , I
ran plump up ogtlnrt the back patt of an old

As I stool there htultatlng what to do , the
sentinel on the beat lending that x < ay came
Into hearing , but not Into sight , and I slunk
do\\n Into an old cMlanxay ami xxalted till
ho went around the other cottier. Then. I
began to think , and I thought first that If I
could get Into the house I might hldo In
eonie crack 01 ctanny , such aa are always
found In the e old houses , and atay there
until night came agiln , xvith another chance
for me to escape. It was so Infernally daik ,

HIDING IN A CLOSET.
"At about 1 30 o'clock the sky cleared
a llttlo and In the 111 to of starlight between
the scudding clouds I found there xvas an
op n door and a porch above xvhere I had
dodged In , and when the sentinel gaxe me
an opportunity again I slipped Into the house
and went ahead In the < lark , feeling along
the walls and trusting to Providence. It
wa apparent that the house xxas empty , for
I cfauld not ex en hear the sound of , breathing
sleepers and the doors weie cxeiyxhere opea.
In cue room a lamp was dimly burning and
by Us light T could det&ct that the place was
occupied by an olllcer , though it did not seem
to be an ofilclal headquatters.
"Whllo I XVAS uo3ltatlng hero I heard the
sound of voices and approaching footsteps
and without a thought of what the result
xxo-ild be I Jumped for a big closet on the
far sldo of the room and hid there. It had
a glass front with thin tllk curtains oxer It
and had ouco been usel as a book case
though It was now empty and was only about
deep enough for mo to turn around In. When
thp xoicca and footsteps reached the room I
discovered that they belonged to a brigadier
general and two Junior onicero , xxho , attet a
brief consultation as to xxhat they should do
in the search for the escaped spy , left htm
as the solo occupant of the room , and , as far
as I could hear , of the house In a few
minutes ho was ready for bed , and , going tea

not so much on the spy. as I thought It ought

had to do with the peace nnd dignity of the
bripadler general.
THE VILLAIN APPRAnS.
"Then the corporal got out of the room ,

to glxc Mfo conduct out of his lines , when
I xxas startled by feeing a shadowpm the
door leading Into the hall through which I
had come from the rear of the house What
It xx-as I could not make out. and not hiving
much cl o to do Just nt that particular tlmo
I waited for dexelopments There wa < not
long to xx alt , for almnnt on the Instant n
flguro shot out front the doorway , stooping
low and glided like n miake Into tlio shadow
of the table In tlio middle of the room H
was a man's flguro. though xxhlteor black 1
could not determine * . Kor a minute , fully , 1
could ceo him , and then he ro < e high enough
to peek over the tablet and t could look
squarely Into the fare of a mulatto nnd It
was not a pleasant face On the contrary.
It xvas as ugly a countenance as 1 oxer looked
Into , and It gaxo me the shivers , so dis
torted xvas It xvlth pnMlon , as It looked
toward Uip bed where the general xxns snor
ing away unconscious of how many guests

"So nbiorhcd was I In xxntchlng tlio mu
latto's movements thnt I forgot xxhat Ixan
there for and my own peril became entirely
secondary to xvhnt rrnlly did not concern mo
In the least. Ai I stood behind my glass
nnd silk screen peering through HIP shnd-
oxvs at the mulatto ho moved from behind
the table , though still crouching below It ,
raised his hsnd nnd very cautiously turned
up the light of the lump Just enough to
nhoxv tlm flguro of the general In the bed In
the corner about ten foot axxay , nnd not
enough to add greatly to the Illumination of

sponded to oxen Ill's ' slight Inorenso nnd
turned oxer , muttering oonivthlng In xxhlch
t rou Ul henr the niimc Jnckman. which t
had heard him mention to the corporal. Then
I heard the mulatto curs. In n deep whisper
nnd I came to the concluHlon thnt the cot-
poral hid not received Mr. Jnckman's card
when ho camp In and Mr. .Inckman xxould
bo likely to hnxo It out xvlth the general ,
though what was nt the bottom ot It nil wan
not knoxxn to me.
THH ASSASSIN IULKUD.
"Tho next thing that attracted my atten
tion xxas n movement on the part ot the
mulatto , who had dropped Hat on the floor ns
the genet ul moved and muttered In hta sleep ,
nnd as he came up on his hatuln nnd knees
nnd peeped over tlm table from the other
side , I snw a long knife In ! is ! mouth I
xxondercd xx-hut he xxould do next , nnd also
when my turn , ns an unarmed man , would
como to taKe n hand In the scrap , or would
It bo the better plnu to ktep my own coun
sel and not get mixed up In n mutter of
which I had no knoxxledge rxccpt what I
wa then picking up 1 xxas not Interested
nt nil. nnd I merely put my own life In
donblo danger , for if I attacked the negro he
might kill me , and If I killed him , of course ,
I xxould be Identified as the spy they xxere
after and even my heroism xsould not saxe
me Under the circumstances my position
was ono requiring a most careful study nnd
I xxas glxlng It thnt In the \cry short time
at my disposal. A man can think n good
deal when ho glxes up his whole tlmo to It ,
an I xxas doing just then
"Whllo I was still debating the point at
Issue as to my duty In the premises , the
mulatto rose again to a crouching position ,
and xxlth the knlfo In ono haml and n ennd-
bag or n short club In the other , ho started
quickly for the side of the bed , evidently
Intending to diop In It8 shadoxv and xxnlt
a moment for the final deed Hut it was not
to be as he Intended , for there xxas n. small
foot stool hetxvccn the table nnd the bed and
this ho struck xvlth hl foot and fell oxer ,
creating such n disturbance that the general
started up In bed and called out to knoxv
xvho xxas there Then ho Jumped suddenly
out of bed xvlth a hcaxy comfort oxer his
arm and brcnst as a protection , and as be
struck the floor the mulatto xxas upon him
The yelloxv man xxas a giant In size and
the general xxas a child In his hands as I
could see , nnd before I could do any more
thinking I had flung open my glass door1
and had xxalloped the mulatto over the head
xxlth a musket to such good effect that be
tumbled down In a heap beside- the general ,
xxho xxas bleeding from somu kind of a cut ,
I couldn't see or say where.
"But ho xvas In much better condition thnn
the mulatto , nnd a rapid search showed that
the mulatto's knife had gone through the
heavy comfort and mmie u slash over his
ribs near the heart , cutting open thu skin ,
but not doing any serious harm. Tlio gen
eral xxas for calling the corporal at once and
having a surgeon dress his wounds , nt the
nanio time expressing his grntitudo to me for
sax'lng his life , but too much , excited to ask
hoxv I happened to be thcio or xxho I xxas ,
although I could bee he took me for ono
of the guards xvho had come In from the
outsldo In the nick o ? time.
AHRANGINO A TRDATY.
"Hoxxoxer , when the gencinl ordered me"
to call tbo corporal and bend for n surgeon
I declined to do so , much lo his surprise ,
and In aery fexv xxords I explained to him
who I xvas nud xvhat I wna doing In hla room
at that time of the night ,
" 'Now. ulr , ' I said , xvltu the gun still In
my hand , 'I haxe saved your llfo and you
ought to save mine by all the rules of fair

things to your position and that I am a bpy
who will be shot on Bight and that by all

At the same tlmo I xvould call your attention
to the fact that without obligations or rules

though , and I responded to the higher call
.Vow , vliat are you going to do ? 1 can kill
you ns the mulatto xvould have done , but
that ixvould not do you or mo nuy particular
good , and I xvould much rather xvo could
arrange some other way '
"He looked me over for a minute , holding
the comfort to his sldo to keep tlio blood
back , and then lie spoke. „

"quare xvlth me and without & word I Hlippc'l
Into the closnt and ho locked the door on
me , leaving me In darlcnesa , but xvlth plenty
of air through a slatted transom , In which
I could hear all that might bo said In the

poral , and , after reprimanding him for hU
carelessness , sent him for the surgeon In
a fexv mlmitea tlio surgeon arrived , with an
assistant , and , after llxlng up the general
xvlth a stitch or two In liU side , tlio mulatto

BACK TO Tlirj UNION LINES.
"And the beautiful story the general told
tbo Burgeon ot hoxv ho had Iwen uxvakrned
out ot his sleep by the mulatto , who had
threatened hU llfo a week before and had
been In hiding In the swamps since , and how
he had caught the bed clnthc-a , and. all un

struggle had got hold of the gun and by a
lucky stroke had been able to knock the

up , very much alive , but not at all com
