destruction Now the wind will come with a fitful and moaning cadence so like the human voice we for an instant believe it the wail of an agonized being and again it will sweep by with a rushing sound like a troop of enraged monsters bent on a mission ot death Sometimes an unseen branch will softly touch the shoulder congealing the warm current of life with the idea that a spectral hand has suddenly ar- rested our progress and again a black and blasted tree with one or two sere branches protruding from its side will for an instant still the pulsation of the heart as we behold in it a

with a sudden throb of joy that her husband lived but grew cold again as she watched the motionless form of her child She longed to Hv to its side and for the suspense that pi eyed upon her was terrible but again her resolute mind her and she began to deliberate upon the situation of her husband and devise menus for releasing him The vivid light cast by the fire upon all things near it enabled the wife to note the distinctly She saw with a thankful heart that the ages all slept and that she could reach the side of her husband without ing near enough to awake them but she also saw that he was bound with strong which she could not hope in her wearied state to un- fasten and she looked about for thing with which to sever them There was nothing save their knives which the Indians wore at their sides Looking more intently she saw that one of them had slipped from its place and lay on the ground by its owner so near that his hand almost touched the hilt A pang of intense fear shot of man How radiant with grateful joy was the face of that fond mother as clasped her recovered treasure close to her bosom How full of ad- miring love was the eye of the rescued husband it rested

disappeared behind some intervening object she still kept her eye steadily ou the con and soon gained a position where it shone brightly before her and she could approach without loosing sight of it again she drew near she gazed upon the scene which that light revealed with mingled of astonishment hope and fear There was a large fire built of the dried branches of trees and around it lay the dusky forms of five or six Indi ans reposing on the ground Their appearance savage and frightful the extreme each with bis painted j i With a firmness which would have done honor to a stole she conquered the s of natural love and hastened away With a step as less as the falling dew she glided ward the slumbering savages as she drew near her frame trembled so violently that she could scarcely sup port herself and when she put forth her hand to take the knife the beat ing of heart was so audible that she feared it would awake the sleepers and she pressed her hand convulsively upon it to stop its tumultuous bings One terrible she thought the eyes of the Indian opened and glared upon her with a fierce and f malignant expression but this was mere fancy for he still slept and the moment she was gliding with the knife firmly grasped in her hand With a few rapid strokes she ated her husband and then bent down and uncovered the child To her un- speakable joy she found it in a ber as

knife gleaming at his side Near them lay implements of banting and around the fire lav the scattered and fragments of a rude and hasty re- past The whole scene was calculated to strike terror to the heart of the cate being who gazed upon it But she scarcely saw the rude savages or their implements of death for her whole soul absorbed in plating a portion of the scene we have not yet described and which eted her attention with a thrilling and magic power Bound to a tree was the form of her husband and at his feet on the cold ground lay her child The father's face was pale and stained a word did she utter to greet her husband The of a uncertain happiness had settled upon her spirit and she feared to break its thrilling charm For a time they traveled thus in silence and darkness moving as near as they could judge in the direction of their home and anxious to be farther slill farther away from their enemies At length weariness compelled them to rest awhile and as the dawning minute and thirty-three seconds to make the transfusion about six ounces being transfused within the time and it proved an entire success It took nearly an entire day to prepare the lamb for the experiment Every
