And PariisworUi proffered the JaiJ. "He's there, to a certainty, sir " "I Haw Bererley an hour ago," said Helm. "I knew all the tme thut he'd bo on hand." It wis a white Ho. Captain Helm Was ax much surprised as hla captors et what he beard, but ho could not re list the tontptatlon to bo annoying. llamlltou looked as Farusworth dl rected, and, sura enough, there was the young Virclnlnn lieutenant stand ing on a barricade, bis hat off, cheer ing bis men with a superb show of tea). Not n hair of his head was miss ing, so far as the glass could bo relied upon to show. Ouclo Jaxon's quick old eyes saw tho gleam of the Uuescope tube In tho loop bole. "I now could shoot much," be mut tered, and then n little bullet sped with absolute accuracy from his din reputable looking rlllo and shattered fre object lens Just ns Hamilton morcd to withdraw tho glass, uttering an ejaculation of Intense excitement "Such dovlla of marksmonl" said ho, and his face was haggard. That in fernal Indian lied." "I could hare told you all thn time that the scalp Long Hair brought to yoa was not Uovcrley's," said Helm Indifferently. "I recognized Llcutou nt Harlow's hair as soon as I saw It." This was another pleoo of offhand romance. Helm did not dream Unit be was accidentally sketching a horri ble truth. "Barlow's!" exclaimed Varnswortb. tea, Barlow's, no mistake" Two mora men reeled from a port hole, the blood spinning far out of their wonnds. Indeed, through every aperture In tho walls tho bullets were v now humming llko mad hornets. OJo that portholel" stormed Ham ilton. Then turning to Parosworth ho added: "We cannot enduro thts long. Shut up every placo largo onough for ,a bullet to get through. Oo all around, give strict orders to all. Boo that tho men do not foolishly oxposo them selves. Those rufflana out thcro have located every crack." ills gllmpso of Bovcrley and tho mister remark of Helm had com plctcly unmanned him before his men fell. How It rtuhed upon him that If he would escape tho wrath of the mad dened crooles and tho vengeance of Allco's lover he must quickly throw blmself upon the mercy of Clark. It was his only hope. Ho chafed In wardly, but bore himself with stern coolness. He presently sought Parni worth, pulled him tulilo and suggested that something must bo dono to pre vent an assault and a massacre. Tho sounds outsldo sootned to forobodo a gathering for a desperatu rush, and In nu neart lie reit all tho terrors of aw ful anticipation. "Wo are completely at their mercy; that U plain," be said, shnigglug hi shoulders and gaxlng at tho wounded tneu writhing lu their agouy. "What do you suggest T" Captain Farnsworth was a shrewd officer. He recollected that I'hlllp Do Jeau, Justice of Detroit, was on hts way down tho Wabash from that post and probably near at band with a flo till of men and supplies. Why not ask for a few daye of truco? It could do no harm and If agreed to might be their salvation. Hamilton Juratwd nt th thought and forthwith drew up a ftota which bo seut out with a whlto flag. Never before in all Ms military career bad be Imkui so comforted by a wddou cessation of righting. Hla noul would grovel in spite of him. Alleo'a WM facw now bad Uoverloy'a bealdo H ta hla Hold of inner vbdon-a doublo assurance of impending doom, It scorn ed to blm, Tbero was short ddlnv in k -..i of Colonel Clark's reply, hastily scrawl d on a bit of soiled paper.

"Mcult for l.lm to wncal hU haata to attend tho pro. poaed conftwic nut he waa afraid to fo to the cburth-th thought chilled Si ,bouM rtdencea of V ..? I "- He shuddered "" io oreaK and near tne new position taicen up Dy Bovcrley nnd his men. It was a fine test of nerve when tho lieutenant's eyes met those of the governor. Nei ther man permitted the slightest change of countenance to betray bis feelings. In fact, Beverley's face was as rigid as marble; be could not have changed It Father Beret was Indeed present at the church, as Hamilton bad dreaded, and the two duelists gave each other a raptor-like eye thrust. Neither spoke, howover, and Clurk immediately do tunneled a settlement of the matter in hand. He was brusquo and Imperious to a degree, apparently rather anxious to repel every peaceful advance. It was a laconic Interview, crisp as autumn Ice and bitter as gall berries. Colonol Clark had no respect whatever for Hamilton, to whom be had applied the Imperishable adjective "hair buyer general." On the other hand, Govern or Hamilton, who felt keenly the dis grace of having to equalize himself of ficially and discuss terms of surrender with a rough backwoodsman, could not conceal his contempt of Clark. The fire men of history, Hamilton,! Helm, Hay, Clark and Bowman, wero not distinguished diplomat. They went nt their work rather after tho hammer and tongs fushlon. Clark bluntly demanded unconditional sur render, Humllton refused. They ar gued the mnttcr. Helm put In his oar, trying to soften tho situation, as was his custom on all occuslons, and re ceived from Clark a stinging rcnrl- mand, with the reminder that he was nothing hut a prisoner on parolo and bad no voice at nil In settling tho terms of surrender. "I release him, sir," said Hamilton. "Ho Is no longer a prisoner. I am qulto willing to havo Captain Holm Join freely In our conference." "And I refuse to permit his accept ance of your favor," responded Clurk. Vulilnln ITI.., ,11 .Mr. Hamilton to the fort and remain his captlvu until I free you by fonu Meantlino hold your tongue." Father Beret, suave looking and qui lt occupied himself nt the little ultur, ipparcutly altogether Indifferent to what Mas being mild, but be lost not n word of the talk. "Qui babet nurcs audlondl, nudlnt," bo Inwardly repeated, tmillliu; blandly. "Uaudoto In Ilia (l.lo, et oxultutel" Humllton rose to k; deep lines of worry creased his face. Hut when tho party hud passed outsldo ho suddenly turned niton Clark and said: "Why do yuii domand Impossible terms of me?" "I will tell you, sir," was tho stem iiiswer in u tono In which thcro was no nieroy or compromise. "I would rather luivo you refuse. I desire noth ing so much as nu excuse to wroak full and bloody vengounco on every mnn In that fort who has engaged In the biiKliUNM of employing savages to sculp brave, patriotic men and defenseless women and children.

Major Hay, who was Hamilton's In dian agent, now, with some dlltlculty cleuritig his throat, spoko up. "I'my, sir." said he. "who Is It that you call Iudlan partisans?" "Sir," replied Olark, seeing that his words bad gone nolldly home. "I take Major Hay to bo one of tho principals." n'l.i. ...,...., ... ........ .. tw iwuira iu singe nay wjta deadly forct. Clark's report says that be was "pale and trembllug. scarcely abla to stolid," ami that "Hamilton blushed, nnd. I observed, was much af fected nt hla behavior." Dimbtless If the doughty American coiumauder bad known more about the governor's feel ings Just then ho would havo added that nn awful feur, even greater than the Indian agent's, did more than any thing eUo to congest the veins In his face. Tho parties separated without reuch- ing uu ugtwmout. but the end had come. The terror In Hamilton's soul was doubled by a wild scene enacted under the walls of hU fort a bcouo which, hnvlng uo proper placo In thla tory, strung as Its historical bitereat unquestionably Is, must be but out lined. A party of Indians returning from a scalping expedition In Ken tueky and nlong the Ohio waa cap tured ou tho outskirts of tho town by somo of Clark's men, who procwded to kill mid scalp them within full t. of tho beleaguered garrison, after which tnoir wangled belles wero flung Into the river. If tho British cmumauder needed fur ther wine of dread to till bis cup wtth al it was furnished by an ostentatious marshaling of the American force for a gwieral assault. His spirit broke com pletely. m that It looked like a god KMKl to l.lm when Clark finally offered terms of honorable surrender, the con sumuwtlott of which waa to bo post poned until tlM following morning. Ho accepted promptly, appending to the be treated as an honorable prisoner or war, permitted to strut forth from tho fort with Ills sword at his side, his head up the scalp buyer, tho murder er of Alice! What waa patriotism to the crushed heart of a lover? Even If his vision had been able to plerco the future and realize tho splendor of Anglo-Saxon civilization which waa to fol low that little triumph at Vlncennes, what pleasure could It havo afforded him? Alice, Alice, only Alice; uo other thought had influence savo the recur ring surge of dcslro for vengeance upon ber murderer. And yet that night Bevorley slept and so forgot hla despair for many hours, even dreamed a pleasant dream of home, where his childhood was spent; of tho stately old bouso on the breezy hilltop overlooking a buiiuj plantation, wltb a little river lapsing and shimmering through It. Ills moth es dear arms wero around him, be) loving breath stirred his hair, and bli stalwart, gray headed father oat on thi M If "Such tlct)U of nuirksmerU" cranda comfortably Binoking hnVp!e, while away in the wldo flclda tho no croes sung at tho plow and tho hoo. Bwceter and sweeter grow tho acone, softer the air, tenderer tho blending sounds of the water murmur, leaf rus tle, blnl song ami slave nong until hand In hand ho wandered with Alice In greening groves whero tho air was trembling with tho ecstasy of spring. A young officer awoko him with nn order from Clark to go on duty nt once with Captains Worthlngton nnd Wil liams, who, under Colonel Clarlc him olf, were to talio possession of tho fort Mechanically ho oboyed. Tho sun w'ob far up, shining between clouds of n leaden, watery hue, by tho tlmo every thing was ready for tho Important cer emony. Beside tho main gate of tho stoekudu two companies of patriots un der Bowman nnd McCarty wero drawn up as guards, while tho British garri son filed out nud wns taken In chnrgo. This bit of formality ended, Governor uamiiton, attended by Home of his of- rne area ana snaking blmself 'after tho manner of n dusty mastiff. "C'est moil Gaspard itousslllonl" His mnsslvu un der Jaw was set llko that of n vise, yet it quivered with rage, a rage allien was more fiery condensation of self approval tbnn nnger. Outside th? shouting, singing and huzzas gathered strength ana vol ume until tho sound became a hoarse roar. Clark was uneasy. He bad over heard much of a threatening character during tho siege. The Creoles were, he knew, Juitly exasperated, and even his own men had been showing a spirit which might easily bo fanned Into n dangerous flume of vengeance. He was very anxious to have the formali ties of taking possession of the fort over with, so that ho could tho better control his forces. Sending for llcvor ley, he assigned him to the duty of hauling down the British Hog ami lim ning up that of Virginia. It was an honor of no doubtful sort, which under different circumstances would linvo made the lieutenant's heart glow. As It wns be proceeded without nny sense of prldo or pleasure, moving ns a more machine In performing nu net signifi cant beyond nny other done west of the mountains In the great struggle for American Independence and tho control of American territory. Hamilton stood n little way from tho foot of the tall flagpole, his arms fold ed on hla breast, his cbln slightly drawn In, his brows contracted, gaz ing steadily ut Beverley while he was untying tLc halyard, which had been wound around the pole's base about three feet ubove tho ground. Tho Auicrleuu troops In tho fort wore dis poned so as to form three sides of a hollow square, faclug inward. Onde Juzon, scrvlug as the ornamental ex treme of one Hue, was conspicuous for bis outlundish gurb and unmllltary bciirlug, Thu silence insldo tho stock ade offered a strong contrast to tho tremendous roar of voices outside. Clark made a signal, nnd at tho tup of a drum Riverley shook tho ropes looso and began to lower tho British colors. Slowly the bright emblem of earth's mightiest nation crept down lu toker of the fact tbat a haudful of back woodsmen had won""iin"oiiiplro by a splendid Btroko of puro heroism. Bev erley dotuched tiio flag nnd, saluting, handed It to Colonol Chirk. Hamil ton's brenst heaved and his Iron Jaw tightened their pressure until tho lines of his cheeks were deep furrows of pain. Just then thero was a blrdllko move ment, a wlngllko rustle, and a light fig ure flitted swiftly ncross tho area. AH eyes wero turned upon It Hamilton recoiled, ns pule ns death, half lifting his hands ns if to ward off a deadly blow, and then a gay flag was flun? oui over ins ucan. Uo saw before him tho girl ho had shot, but her beau tiful face was not waxen now, nor was It cold or lifeless. Tho rich red blood was strong under tho browned yet del icate skin, tho eyes wero bright and bravo, tho chorry lips, slightly anart gave a glimpse of pearl whlto teotb, tlien every voice seemed to ecao tne words. Clark was a young man of no-bl- typo, in whose veins throbbed tho .; nhirnlrous blood of. the cava- Hats. A waft of the suddenly prevail ing influence bore him also quite off hlfl feet He turned to Beverley and said: "Do It! It will have a great effect. It Is a good idea. Get the young lady's flag and her permission to run It up." Before he finished epeaking-lndced at the first glance-be saw that Bever ley, like Hamilton, was white as a dead man, and at tho same tlmo It camo to tiU mnmnrr that his young friend had confided to blm during the awful march through the pralrlo wilderness a love story about this very Alice Itousslllon In tho worry and stress of tho subse quent struggle he had forgotten the rnndor basis upon which Beverley had rested his excuse for leaving Vlinennei. Now it all reappeared In Justification of what was going on. It touched the romantic core of his southern nuture. "I say, Lieutenant Beverley," ho re peated, "beg tho young lady's permis sion to use her Hag upon this glorious occasion, or shall I do It for you?" Thero wero no inlrucles In those brave days, and tho strain of Hfo with its terrible realities braced nil men and women to meet sudden explosions of surprise, whether of good or bad ef fect, with admirable equipoise, but Beverley's trial, It must bo admitted, was extraordinary. Still ho braced him self quickly and his whole expression changed when Clurk moved to go to Alice. For he realized now that It wus indeed Alice In flesh and blood, stand ing there, tho center of admiration, filling the air with her fine magnetism and crowning a great triumph with her beauty. Ho gave her a glad, flash ing smile, as If he had just discovered her, and walked straight to her, his bands extended. She was not looking toward him, but she saw him and turned to face him. Hers was the ad vantage, for she had known for some hours of his presence In Vlnccnues nud had prepared herself to meet him cour ageously and with maidenly reserve. Thcro is no safety, howover, where lore hirks. Neither Beverley nor Alice was as much agitated as Hamilton, yet they both forgot, what he remembered, that a hundred grim frontier soldiers were looking oa. Hamilton had bis per- sonal' and official dignity to sustain, and ho fairly did It under what n pres sure of humiliating nnd surprising cir cumstances wo can fully comprehend. Not so with tho two young people, standlug ns it wero In a suddenly be ttowed and lncompnrablo happiness on tho vcrgo of a new lire, each to tho oth er an unexpected, unhoped tor resur-l rtctioti rrotn tho dead. To tbem xu was no universe aavo tho lllimitai? oxponso of their love. In that njotrJll of tueetlug all tbat they had suffewJ on account of lovo was transfused m poured forth, a glowing libation u, lovo's sake, n flood before which n barriers broke. " Father Beret wns looking on with strungo fire In his eyes', nnd what i! feared would happen did bappcn ah!! let tho lltiB fall nt Hamilton's' ft 6 Pllltfe- He saw heforo him the girl he had thot. when Beverley camo near her smiling that grout, glad smile, nud with a Joy ous cry leaped into bis outstretched nrniH. Jeun snatched up tho fallen banner and ran to Colonel Clark with it. Tiro minutes lulur ft wns made fast, and the Iialyard begun to squeak through the rudo pulley nt the top of tho pole. Up, up climbed tho gay little emblem of glory, while thu cannon crashed from the embrasures of tho blockhouse hard by, and outside the roar of voices re doubled. Thirteen guus boomed the salute, though It should linvo been four teen, the additional ono for the great northwestern territory that day annex ed to tho domnlii of tho young Ameri. can republic. Tho ling went up Tit old Vlncennes uovor to como down again, and when It reached itu place nt the top of the staff Bovcrley nnd Alice stood side by side looking nt It, while the sun broke through -tho clouds and flashed on Its shining folds, nnd love unabashed glorified tho two strong, young faces.

Ho did not understand. Tba sudden Incident had bowlldered him, but his virile uaturo was Instantly and wholly charmed. Something llko q breath of violets shook tho touderest chords of his hoart.

It would be dangerous to take any liberties, but he could smile and roll bis quid of tobacco trom cneoic to cnoek.
