He insisted the the i Pony had been trigger up Quot for her with th3 approval of in Parent and having so Many ponies on their ranch they would never miss so Valley accepted Bills gift with sincerely grateful words Valley was exceedingly fond of her new present and soon Learned to know and love its kind mistress. One saturday afternoon she determined to ride beyond the limits of Wolf Prairie and explore the country far West of her Prairie Boma Quot was now Spring and the buds were bursting into cleanly on every Side. Valley lost in her admiration of a scene so enchanting took no heed of the distance she had come until her pour paused by the Side of a Lovely wooded Stream to drink. Looking Over her a Boulder she was a trifle frightened to think How tar she bal heedlessly Ridden beyond the Range of any human habitation. Before she had time to turn her Pony a head homeward a Brawny painted Indian sprang suddenly from the Wayside Bushes and grasped the rein of her bridle a Hugh Quot he uttered leering into her scared face fiendishly.

The Indian with another triumphant gleam in life evil eyes turned Valier s Pony into a by path and was fast leading horse and fright benumbed girl deeper within the tangled Woodland. Just As the Indian reached a Crook in the path they came face to face with Bill Warren on his Pony. Bill had been out Hunting for wild Turkey and Providence had led him thither. With his keen wits Bill comprehended the situation once. With a yell of horror the Young fellow raised hts Rifle and fired directly the Indian. But Lief re Bill had pulled the trigger the wily jumping Fox had jumped Anflic and the Bullet which was meant to Pierce his heart buried itself into the trunk of a tree beyond where he had stood. Bill let him go skulking off without farther molestation while he hastened to valleys Side and received her into his Strong arms just As the fainted. Water from Tbs Stream near by quickly restored Valley and they Rode toward horns. She a too grateful to Bill for his timely Rescue to speak much of besides the Brave fellow would Bot listen to thanks. After that there seemed to be less constraint Between thens. Perhaps each understood the others heart better. Anyway the or relations were of the Moat Friendly nature and Valley n ver Rode across Tho prairie3 again unless Bill ten led Ber.

You Intuit rely recognized that trouble w As brewing southerners had sworn that Lincoln Shoal i nos be inaugurated. Their utterances had to a the Northern heart an i the people Loyal to the old Flag were just Ai determined that the lawfully elected president should be inaugurated though blood should flow in Tho attempt.

Even women looked askance each other and the children obliged to be out a old Skerry Home As if frightened probably Baring been warned by their Par. Or the streets night for several nights prior to the inaugural ceremonies were practically deserted. Thoro wis a hush Over everything. seemed to me that the Shadow of death was hovering near. I bal constantly floating before my eyes Sable plumes and trappings of woe. I could hear dirges constantly and thought for awhile that i would have to leave the place or go crazy. I knew All these sober thoughts were but Imaginal in but i Alco knew that the something which had influenced my imagination was tangible really existed. The 4th Day of match came and or. Lincoln was inaugurated quietly and without ostentation. After the services were Over and became known that or. Lincoln a i really teen inducted into office there was a Savage snarl went up from the southerner. The snarl was infection. was answered by just As Savage growls All Over the City. But nothing was said. A tangle yell of Defiance a pistol shot or even an oath would have precipitated a conflict men simply glared each other and gnashed their Teth but wore careful to grit them so could to heard. I went to my room in the Willard and sat Down to do some work. I work. The stillness was oppressive. least a dozen times i picket up my pencils Only to throw them Down again. I got up and Pace i the floor nervously. I heard men on either Side of me doing the same thing. Walking done to relieve the severe mental Strain i sat Down in my chair and pressed my head in my hands. 8ndd<oily i heard a window go up and some one step out on the Balcony of Tho Kibbitt House directly opposite. Everybody in the hotels had hear i him. What is he going to do ? i asked myself and i suppose every one else propounded the same mental interrogation. We Hadnot to a Long.

Safe in the darkness i crept higher up the Bank guided by the lights reflected on the Trees and in a few minutes found myself on an Earth work in the old Woodyard looking Over into a Camp of forty or fifty men just Back of a Battery of seven guns ail masked by Bushes but covering the wharf where i landed and the River front give him some. When once he got a taste he was ret in to commit of Twenty two Miles we must pass them. We Vee Rosse i the Bridge Rode Down the River a mile forded and intended to make the Comite Ford before the enemy were aroused in crap. Here a Little incident occurred to me which though ii x1 Ell enough to laugh about now failed to excite the spirit of mirth in me that time. On of the prisoners whom i was guarding was a toll Swarthy fellow. He called himself Hackensack from Arkansas. A he wore a pair of Silver plated mexican spurs which i wanted and accordingly politely asked him to present them to me Mark of respect to his Superior officer. He to allowed he would keep them and after a few complimentary words passed Between us i finally gave him to understand that he was my prisoner and i would have the spurs if Cost the Price of a Hackensack. He then handed me the spurs about that time we heard a yell and looking Back As far As the Eye con d reach we saw the enemy on our Trail. With Energy we urged our tired horses on so As to reach the Comite Ford when when we would be Safe but All in vain Forrest a whole command was after us so seemed. The prisoners hindered us so we let them go. But when we reached the Ford we found the enemy there awaiting us. We made a flank movement and tried to Gam the Bridge Bat to no purpose. We were ordered to dismount and our arms and everything of value taken from us. I looked around and who should i see coming straight toward me but my a Hackensack a in search of his victim i tumbled once for i dido feel half As big As i did a half hour before. V last when to reached me Aud from his towering height looked with supreme impressiveness Down upon me Aud said a yank i reckon you in remember i done told Ycu in that i allowed i d keeps my spurs a i did no to Stop to argue the Case i handed them to him and courteously thanked him for Tho Nae Chi them for the Short time i had used them.
