You do Servo your name and no at that formidable Unaie the Soldier took to his heels at once and Armstrong even thinking of his prostrate antagonist proceeded to examine the hurts of the boy. The latter was sorely bruised in Many places and the blood trickled freely Over his Swarthy face but the Little hero still did his Best to stand erect and to keep Down every sign of the pain which lie enduring. You re a Brave lad and you la make a Soldier some said the major to him in Hindo stance. Come with me and 1 u see that no one molests you the lad the huge Brown hand had defended him so bravely and. Kissed it with the deepest reverence and the two walked away together. Day was just breaking when two men held a whispered counsel in one of the upper rooms.

Then when they have no suspicion and think i m unite to to a v and the a sure asked major Ailtie six months have come and gone and or. Carrie hospitable House presents a very different spectacle. The pretty Gar Den trampled into dust und the bodies of men and horses arc lying thick among the fragments of the half destroyed stockade. All the windows of the House Are Block Oil up und through the loophole Walls peer the muzzles of ready rifles showing How steady the besieged Garrison stands at buy against the countless enemies dark Lis acc takes and glittering weapons arc visible amid the half ruined building and matted thickets All around. The sepoy Mutiny of 1857 blazing sky High Over Northern India and col Onel Annesley blockaded in Hutto Bagh with Aorta Katy of a hideous death for himself and every Man of the few who arc still True to him unless help come speedily. One of thei Belve slip acrus the i ivc Are you in will believe Strong doubt Turiy. B this in piled the deliberately making deep in Bare shoulder and staining his while frock with blood an he glided irom the room followed by Armstrong. The plan to the men below and a moment later Isu Iai dark figure was seen darting an Arrow across the open space in front of the build in a followed by a Quick disc arge of Blank cartridges irom the marksmen at the loopholes. The sound of filing Diew the attention of the Poyo several of whom ran to raid to meet him. In another instant he was in tie midst of them. Can scarcely see for Iho a colonel Ai Mesley but lie suem5 to be showing them the wound on his shoulder and telling them it was our doing at that moment an exulting yell irom the Teneni came pealing through the still air. The Story of our being Short of water for a said the majority was a very Good thought of his. If it Only delays their attack two Days longer there May be time for help to arrive yet. Slowly and wearily the Long hours of that fearful Day wore of. The heat so terrific that even the native sold icis of the Garri Sofi could barely hold their Osva agr Viust it and the handful of English men were almost helpless. Had the sepoy attacked then All would have been Over at a blow but hour a sed ult i hour und there was no sign of an assault. At length afternoon gave place to evening a movement began to show it self in the enemy Hue their curls of smoke rising above the Trees showed thai the evening meal was in preparation and several figures with pitchers in their hands Anim big whom the colonel keen Eye soon detected Ismail. By George cried the. Old Soldier slapping his knee exulting in to Jal boy Worth his weight in Gold there his Way Down to the River open to him with out the least Chance of suspicion Why that lad a born nothing every Eye within the Walls was now turned anxiously upon the Distant group fearing to see at any moment some move ment which would show that the trick was detected. How did Ismail mean to accomplish his purpose would he plunge boldly into the River without any disguise or had he some further strata Gem in View no one could suddenly Ismail stooped to plunge his Light wooden dipper into the water it slipped out of his hands Antl went floating away Down Stream. A cry of dismay a loud laugh from the sepoy and then the boy was seen running frantically along the Bank and trying in vain to clutch the vessel it floated past. What in Earth he up grunted the colonel completely mystified. I exclaimed major Armstrong triumphantly. There a boat yonder among the Reeds and he making right for it. Well done my Brave boy 1" but at that moment a yell of rage from the sepoy told that the trick was discovered. Luckily those on the Bank had left their pieces behind or poor Ismail would soon have been disposed of but the alarm instantly brought up a crowd of their armed comrades Whoso bullets fell like Hail around the boat and its Gallant Little Pilot. Let fire a Volley and make a show of rallying said the colonel it la take their attention from but in this he was mistaken. The first rattle of musketry from the did indeed recall most of Ismail assailants but at least a dozen were left who kept up an increasing lire striking the boat again and again. All at once the colonel dashed his Glass to the floor with a frightful oath. Between two gusts of smoke he had con that seen the boat turn suddenly Over and go whirling away Down the dark River keel upward. There an end to the poor Piui tried the Veteran Brokenly. God bless him for a Brunc Little Ellow. And mow old Friend just Izard for there no Hope left. T 4. A the first few hours of the inuit passed i quietly and then the exhausted de fenders utterly worn out slept if drugged with opium but a Little after Midnight the Quick ears of the two vet eran of users thu Only watchers in the whole Garrison except the sentries them caught a faint stirring in the sur rounding thickets which seemed to argue some movement of the part of the enemy. Listen Init intently for a few moments they Felt certain that they were right and lost no time in arousing men. The scanty stores of food were opened once More and crouching together in the darkness the doomed men took what they believed to be their last meal on Earth. Said major Arm Strong bar aiming his eyes into the gloom through u loophole. I hear them creep ing Forward though t can t see them what the Deuce was exclaimed the colonel suddenly. It looked like a fiery Arrow lying it worse than said the major in a Low voice. The rascals Are shop Gigli Ted Chip of Bamboo on to the Root to set it on lire. Send the women up with buckets to flood the Tritch there not a moment to ill go und see to it cried Cunie hastening out of the loom. But the Potter of this new had already become manlies. The House was an old one and dry tinder from the prolonged heat nud the i Hunes were quenched in one place they broke out in another when Day dawned the fire had already got a firm hold of one Corner of the building. And a crushing discharge was poured i upon All attempted to Vinish it v. Idle the triumphant of Lite human Tisi Erx Chiw told that they Celt sure of their prey.

A few hours later he listened to Ismail account of How he dived under the boat and kept it be tween himself and the sepoy that they i Trot think him drowned. He the Luckiest Little fellow i be Ever seen and although lie belongs to the major i m go ing to take my share of helping him on by Railroad accidents. In a Book named notes on Kail Road or. Charles Francis Adamsjr. Shows that the percent age of loss of life and of personal in juries on railroads exceedingly Small when compared with the amount of travel and that the risks of Railroad travel Are much less than they Are popularly supposed to be. He cited statistics to prove that it actually safer for a mail or his family to travel by rail than to stay tit Home thus corroborating the saying attributed to John Bright that the safest place in which a Mai could out himself was inside a first class rail Road Candage of u train in full motion. During the eight years from 187u to ls7y the whole number of lives lost in operating the entire Railroad system in Massachusetts was or an average of 140 a year while in Boston the re corded deaths from accidental causes during the ten years from 1808 to 1s7s was or an annual average of 25 j. These results show that a the City of Boston alone the yearly number of deaths caused by accidents was 80 per cent greater than the number reported of till the railroads of the state. This comparison a not Peculiar to Massachusetts but maybe taken approximately accurate for other places. Indeed statistics were published years ago in prance showing that people were less Safe at Home than while travelling on the railroads. Another fact will serve to reassure the timid that of the whole number of per sons accidentally killed or injured on railroads but a Small proportion Are Poss enters. Many of those lose their lives or Are personally injured Are employees who Are constantly exposed to risk by virtue of their employment and familiarity with danger leads them to be careless and even Foolhardy oftentimes. But or. Adams shows the greatest and most regular cause of death and injury in the operation of railroads the reckless habit of walking on the track which common with too Many people and especially with those Are More or less drunk. More than one third of All the Railroad casual ties reported in Massachusetts Are classified under the head of accidents to that accidents to men women and children especially the lat Ter illegally lying walking or playing on the tracks or Riding on the cars. Or. Adams says that the Best remedy for this dangerous practice the sys tem of broken Stone ballast covering the entire surface of the Road bed. The Sharp and uneven edges of the broken Stone form a surface which the most inveterate Railroad tramp will shun. The adoption of this system by railway corporations would not Only give their lines the Best Road bed yet devised but would be a Means of materially decreasing the percentage of accidental deaths and injuries.

Tears trickle Down my weather beaten Cheeks whenever i think of the Happy Days i have passed in his company Yide by Side we have a Elered Over Prairie and Mountain and Side by Side we have fought the Crafty red men who sought our lives. But he dead and of what a terrible death was his it was Sunset of a hot. Scorching1 Day in August when Bill Ami 1 made arrange ments for pasting the in a pretty Little Grove of surrounded by a widely stretched Prairie. After making a Hearty meal of Venison steaks we produced our pipes und were soon end ruled in a Friendly smoke. Although we Wem exceedingly tired of our Contr Rule it quite late when we wrapped ourselves in our blankets and went to sleep. I was aroused about Midnight by hear ing a to tilt continuous Roar which at first j thought thu ii Jer but when i am saw the St irs slain intr Brill holy and the Western horizon lighted up with a Ruddy for hire. Tie truth Indian lev across my mind. Cried f hastily tha Kiny my companion the Prairie on cried Hill springing to his lest.

If we should lire the Praise Here by the or Roc. We could then put out up on the ground we had Burnt and a Cape the lire behind we would be in danger of the bulk blocs for we could not alone keep them off and or Haven t time to run out a Short distance toward the fire and Lith the grass there of that when the tire had passed through this Krove we could come Back and climb a tree to escape the buffaloes. Therefore the Best plan i can to mount. And try to reach the Woods to the South. No other plan could be then thought of we hastily mounted and dashed Oil in the direction proposed by Bill. By this the Plaines were plainly visible and the Prairie was lighted up for Miles around. Cried Bill the buffaloes Are gaining on we both had Fine horses but they were quite exhausted Hui at a pretty Good Pace since morning. 3iy companion was a Little Mustang one on which dependence could never be placed und it was with extreme difficulty that he kept his Saddle. Although we used our most strenuous efforts to keep ahead we were now among the buffaloes with the fire hissing and Roar ing but a Short distance in our rear. No pen can describe the sick faintness that came Over me when i saw my com Zaniou horse stumble and throw its rider Over its head then get no and continue on with the living sea i attempted to turn but it for the buffaloes hemmed me in on every Side so with a sad. Heart i spurred on and left poor Bill to die with tin terrible thought on my mind that per should share his be trampled upon by thousands of feet and my body burned to a cinder about three Miles further ahead i espied. By the Aid of Light of the Burn ing Prairies a slight Elevation which appeared to be devoid of vegetation with the exception of a few stunted Cedars. It 1 could get upon that t knew i would be Safe but the Plaines were fast coining on me. And it was doubtful whether 1 could reach it with my horse in his present condition. However i spurred him on and then for the first time 1 noticed that the buffaloes were gaining upon me at in alarming rate and by the time the next mile was pasted 1 found myself among those bringing up the Van of the Herd. I cod tin tied to urge my horse Forward and soon a mile Only intervened Between me and the goal i sought. But should i reach that goal1 the heated air and the dense smoke almost stifled me and i Rode most of the time with my eyes shut so to exclude the dust raised by the hoofs of the animals around me. No one who has not been in a similar condition can perfectly understand the situation in which i was placed at that time. Half a mile Lay Between me and a Plisco of safety and my neck was already burned to a Blister by the heat. It fairly made my flesh creep when i heard the Bellows of agony which the poor unfortunate buffaloes gave vent to they were overtaken one by one by the ruthless flames. Atone time i gave up the race but 1 Ife was Sweet so i pushed on again and Niy Noble Steed scorched by the into ens heat made one More. Superhuman Effort. A moment More and i should have been overtaken by the devouring elements but my faithful beast trembling in every limb rushed up the Little Barren Hill and we were Safe immediately upon gaining the top of the Knoll the Noble brute fell from exhaustion barely giving me time to extricate my meet from the stirrups. I then threw myself upon the ground face downward and then waited for the fire to pass Over me. It did pass leaving the Little Barren Knoll almost untouched and following the terrified buffaloes. I now turned my attention to my Aad after rubbing him Down and administering to him Best i could under tie circumstances soon had him in a fair Way to Reno Var. When Dawn appeared the fire had spent itself. I passed the whole Day up of the Little Hill continually surrounded by a dense smoke. Towards night it commenced to rain which it continued to do till noon or the next Day when i mounted my now Well conditioned Steed and started out on the Prairie to search for the remains of my luckless compan Ion but in tins i was unsuccessful so i continued on my Way to fort Laramie with a heavy heart.
