I non no i Quot a in Jill o a o x o x o x o a o o a o o x 0 0 o a a o o o o a what is that for a asked Tho Captain. A so a said Brainard a that if in i shot i can to fall out of the Saddle. The Lionso will he sure to hurry Back to Camp and the enemy wont get the dispatches As they might if i were to the Captain nodded to Tho colonel who raised ids eyebrows and brain Ard hurried out the Road at an easy Gallop. 1 walked a Little Way in the same direction and strained my ears for shots but heard none. I did not sleep Inucci that night. Should brain Ard he killed i would always feel that 1 had sacrificed his life to save my own should lie succeed Why confound him i would again have to feel As uncomfortable is i did when he did the work and got the glory of our Rescue when we were made prisoners. I did not feel any easier at learning that about an hour before i had started a Man on n harnessed horse bad come galloping wildly out of that same Road and hurried to the rear. Until Tattoo i paced the ground on which our troop was camped. After Tattoo i resumed my tramp. The guards were changed at 1u of clock Midnight 2 in the morning and i was still awake for Brainard had not returned. The Captain who Felt responsible for Tho Safe delivery of the dispatches awoke joined me and said he hoped my chum had get through All right then he also began to Paco to and fro which increased my anxiety. Toward Dawn i fell asleep through sheer exhaustion. Just after Sunrise i wa9 aroused by being shaken. When i opened my eyes Over me tent Brainard very Palo of face but wonderfully Bright of Eye. A Tell me about it a i demanded. A Job a said Brainard �?o1 never wa9 so frightened in my life. After loping along n few minutes it occurred to to that i had better know my Way before trying it so i dismounted and bid my horse in the Woods beside Tho Road leaving my Saber there also. Then i sneaked Down the Road with my revolver in my hand and my heart in my Mouth to find out where and what that cavalry was. It might have been Somo of our own men you know. Pretty soon i heard Tho clanking you spoke of. Did no to it sound dreadful in Tho dark though i crouched and sneaked from one tree to another and the noise grew louder but not a human voice could i hear nor was there any odor of tobacco in the air. These two fact9 bothered me greatly for when soldiers rho Are awake cease talking and smoking there a something serious on baud. A pretty soon i heard a splash. A aha a thought i. A somebody is watering his horse in a Brook or Pond i crept still closer. The ground became lower As if there might he a Brook there. I got nearer still until i made out a Bridge at my left but not a trooper could i see. 1 began to shiver and recall ghost stories. I done to believe in ghosts you know but the dim Light and mysterious noises made me think of them in Spito of myself. Finally i got right on the Bank of the Brook Ami looked Over. Then i was More surprised than scared for i could make out three horses without riders and something that looked like a tent hut All in the water. I made bold to Challenge but there was no reply. Then i became so excited that 1 thought i might As Well be shot As die through bursting a blood vessel so 1 got some matches out of my jacket struck a Light and made a Little fire of dry leaves and twigs and what do you suppose i saw an ammunition Wagon lying on its Side and three of its four horses partly hitched. Apparently it had fallen from the Bridge which was very narrow and had no rail. It was the rattle of the chains of the harness that made the noise you and i and the other fellow had mistaken for the Clank of Saber scabbards. But Wasny to i provoked with myself for having been frightened a a no worse ill bet than i am at having been seared Back to Camp by such a a i it so ashamed a continued Brainard a that i really wished there might to soldiers somewhere in the neighbourhood to give me some honest excuse for being frightened. My wish was gratified pretty soon for after going along pretty Lively for a few minutes i heard a unit a right in front of me As a couple of men sprang from a Foi Ico Corner. Awfully hard to Swallow ones heart sometimes Isnit it i soon saw however in spite of the they weren to dressed like johnnies so i swallowed my heart and gave them Tho countersign. Then they asked me if i had seen any cavalry in the Woods. Three of the general a orderlies in succession had tried to reach the Center and had been frightened into returning. So you see you and i an i the Man who started before us Are not without a Eye est i replied. But the information did no to Comfort 1110 much. Brainard had succeeded. I Hadnot that reflection filled my mind to the exclusion of All others. Brainard went on a i found the Headquarters in two or Throe minutes passing through a Road full of men who had been posted to reek an expected cavalry dash. Then was a half Battery of artillery with them. The general too was awake and nervous All on account of those three horses standing knee deep in a Brook and shaking in their harness the general kept me until Dawn to bring Back some dispatches. But Here 1 the Lucky Little Rascal at least men called i Luck. 00 0 a it a o x o o o o o o x 00 x o a o o o 0 0 o 0x0 o o o r o a o a p chapter xviii. Again the unexpected. I Futek the night Riding at which i failed and Brainard succeeded we spent several Days in worrying the enemy on our front but when several cavalry dashes on a single Day proved to us that the enemy d become weary of us and had a banned the Vicinity we All went Hack Camp and began to do our Spring use Lenning. This work was great needed for Only the make believe a men had occupied the Camp in e last fortnight and they made the ice look like a lot of houses that d been abandoned to tramps. Inert in later Days in be been compelled believe that the War was the origin Tho great army of tramps that has rested and infested the country Ever ice 1805. If ter careful inspection our colonel decided that tie nest Way to have a clean Camp was to make a new one so he formally asked for ground for the purpose but the general said that All the troops at the Post would have to make now Camps elsewhere very soon for since our trouble with Longstreet the War department had determined that the Post was not Worth the Cost of holding it. Further general Hal Leck the presidents right hand military adviser declared that he could not understand Why the Post was Ever occupied. When this information reached us All of us were amazed and disgusted. We had gone out almost a year before to help save the Union. We had spent All our time and suffered innumerable discomforts privations and fears. Now according to the highest authorities we might As Well have remained at Home. Cloyne Brainard and i held in indignation meeting Over it and Cloyues moved formally that we join the Mick Mcswyny gang and assist big Pat Callahan in cursing the government but Brainard objected saying that governments being human had to learn some things by experience and As 011 general principles i always sided with Brainard Cloyne a Resolution was voted Down by a two thirds majority. Meanwhile preparations for evacuating Tho Post had been made. The heavy artillery was removed one regiment after another followed it and finally there came an Early july morning when we were informed we were to pack our own effects at once and be ready to abandon Camp. Up to that time we had supposed that our effects were Only what could be carried 011 our horses but some of us soon Learned to our sorrow that we had accumulated enough stuff to Load half a dozen horses. I for one had collected at least a ton of War relics ringing in weight from a Johnny Iron Stirrup to unexploded shells and solid shot weighing a Hundred pounds. All of teds old Iron Lay in a Row on the Topmost log of our mom and directly Over the inner Edge of Iny bunk. I tried to bribe teamsters to provide transportation i even Laboured with Tho sergeant of our howitzer Battery hoping to coax him to carry them in unoccupied Corners of Bis gun caissons but he too was obdurate he had Luggage of his own so i had to Content myself by selecting a single three Inch Shell that could go in my Box of extra clothing without exciting suspicion by its weight. One Day the entire regiment except the stable orderlies were ordered on picket Tho Reserve station of which was Tho main Street of the Village. At 4 of clock in the morning the pickets instead of being relieved were entirely withdrawn and the Relief was posted within a Quarter of a mile of the main body of the regiment. The men 011 these new posts were relieved at 8 in the morning by members of a single troop which happened to be our own. From the now outposts i was the Corporal in charge of one and Brainard of another we were soon drawn in to Camp. On entering Camp the order was Given to prepare to fire the houses stables Etc. The signal the officers told us would be the fall of the Camp Ila Stait at which a Man with in a already stood while the entire band mounted stood near by playing a Sauld Lang to prepare for firing Camp was simple enough. It was merely to a stand by with matches ready to Light for every bunk was of Pine and contained a mattress full of Hay Straw or leaves that had been Well sunned and seasoned. The Walls were of Pine and so were Tho roofs. No plaster or partitions could delay the spread of flame and everything was is dry As a july Sun could make it. Down crashed the pole hundreds of matches cracked and the band began playing some solemn music Fml Learly known As a old Hundredth a and then dashed into a a there a no Luck about the House a for a a hot time in the old town Quot had not yet been written. In a moment All the men were hurrying to the stables where the horses stood All saddled. Orders had already been Given to dash to the Road is soon is mounted the Guidon bearers were already there As rallying Points for tin men of to Iier respective troops. Already flames poured from the windows of All the houses and even from some of the roofs. The remaining Hay in Camp had been thrown by the stable orderlies upon the Pine Brush roofs of the stables. The instant a stable was entirely cleared of horses the roof was lighted and the fire quickly spread. The spectacle that followed was As Good As a Light so some of our Best fighting men said. At least co buildings were aflame and 000 mounted men were dashing Between and around them in their Effort to reach the Road. Some of the slower men were obliged to make a Detour of half a mile for the heat of that aggregation of burning Pine was intense even to men already in the Road. Finally however when the orderly sergeants called the Rolls the entire command was present or accounted for. The column was formed quickly. Then tie bugles sounded a Forward a and the band once More did the appropriate thing for it played a a ainu to i glad to by out of the wilderness a a popular air of the period. But before half a dozen bars had been played the Mush ceased and the column halted instinctively for we heard a shot like that of a Field gun. A fours about a shouted our Captain. As we wore the rear guard the men who had dropped behind in rear guard manner had already turned their horses and brought their carbines to the position of a look Sharp a said the Captain. A find the direction from which the next shot the instant we heard another report we saw a mass of shingles go skyward from the roof of our troops House. A strange about that a muttered the Captain. I heard Only one report that of the Shell. I did no to suppose a Field gun could lie fired without being by this time the colonel and the major of our battalion were beside us and scantling the surrounding country with their glasses. Then came a deafening report and blazing logs is Well As shingles hew from tin lat a abode of our troop. A that Bents me a said the colonel a bursting shells hut no gun reports. I done to see any balloon from which the enemy could drop i too was mystified and looked inquiringly at Brainard who in turn looked Pale and As if a heavy Load of guilt a on his conscience. M flux Quot colonel a said be saluting a i think i can explain it. In Somo of the Jujen brought in unexploded so gals a fief Tojo slogans mementos and they were Fop big to Curry Wuy and were Cortes sly left in the houses and the lire Lias reached them and undo them hot and Quot a a Thunder a roared the colonel turning almost Black with anger. Quot bugler blow a Forward a a again the column moved. Brainard and i had been glad we were of the rear guard for we had planned to be together if Only for a moment the last men to leave the Post. Now we almost wished we might never leave it for the colonels anger boded no Good to tha men who were to blame for Tho false alarm and it would be easy for the colonel to learn who the men were. Chapter Xix. Thiak we Itai it expected. Or destination which we soon reached was the Union Une on Tho Peninsula on the Road by which Mcclellan had started in 1802 for Richmond and we were cheered by quite a lot of letters from Home. It appeared that the evacuation had Boon ordered for an in roller Date so mail matter for our regiment had not been forwarded. No sooner had 1 opened one of my letters than i began to to mystified for the writer my Mother was praising me extravagantly for something Gallant which she assumed i had done. I read rapidly but Only to be further mystified. A letter from my father was equally confusing. It informed me that the whole town was ringing with praises of to and that our districts member of the a Tate Senate had called to hear the Story and declared that All the District As Well As summer ton was talking of to and was proud of me. I called Brainard to my assistance but he was Reading a letter from my Cousin May and was utterly unresponsive so i opened other envelopes Only to find congratulations from old schoolmates and even from Somo of the solid men of Tho Village. Avent could it mean evidently some other John Frost in the cavalry service had done something in particular and my family and fellow townsmen like villagers in general had not thought that there might be two men of the same name. Little by Little i Learned from to letters that the deed of which i was supposed to be the hero was a Midnight ride alone into a country swarming with the enemy. I had made no sue i ride unless it was on the night i was seared Back to Camp by the rattling Trace chains of the artillery horses that Brainard afterwards discovered. 1 had not recovered from my mortification at my failure that night so of course it could not he for that affair that All Bummer ton and our senatorial District were praising me. Slowly it occurred to me that some one of our Summerton troopers and heard of real Nard a successful ride of the same night and and known that 1 started to Inako the trip. He had got Brainard and to mixed in his mind and so i was being glorified for work at which i and shamefully failed and Tho real hero of the affair was being defrauded of his right. Quot Charley Quot i groaned. He was looking idiotically Happy when i spoke but snid afterwards that my face alarmed him. I quickly told him of the contents of my letters and of Tho Only possible explanation. A is that ally Quot asked Brainard when i had concluded. Quot do feel easy about it for in a not n bit then he fell to rereading his letter from my Cousin May but i exclaimed a Stop being a fool listen to me you know perfectly Well that pm not going to sail under false colors. Tho Story will get pretty soon to Tho other Summerton men of our company and chaff me most unmercifully. I must find the Man who wrote the yarn Home and you must help me and to must make him Correct the Blunder before the Story gets Hack for the first time in my acquaintance with him Brainard looked irresolute. Still worse he looked sheepish. Then he said a a in a afraid in a the guilty a you a Quot yes. Done to be angry Jack when i explain. Of course i did no to suppose that your Cousin May Quot a Quot what Lias May to do with it a a nothing. That is she Isnit in any Way to Maine. Say old Chap 1 suppose you la think me a fool hut you can to understand. In a not so modest that i see that my ride with dispatches that night was quite creditable to me and i did wish your Cousin May could know of it and that i might know How she regarded it. 1 began to write her about it hut my pen simply work. Somehow i can to blow my own trumpet. Suddenly it occurred to me that you a gone through All that i had the sense of danger Tho loneliness the expectation of running into a earn of johnnies or at least of being fired upon at Short Range to 1 wrote up your ride just As i knew you Felt while making it and i did no to leave out a single heart Quot you infernal blessed hypocrite did you make me deliver the dispatch i never imagined you could lie. Even for the Sake of telling a Good Story. I Quot a Quot i did no to lie. I said that despite the scares the dispatches finally reached their destination. And of Jack Tho letter she s written in reply pm taking All the Praise to myself every hit of it. Hut you May read Quot read it ill Send Back a denial by the first mall and if Over again you Trust n big hearted Celt nolo girl with any Story that you Don t want known by the whole world i la dump you into a Lunatic Asylum for your own Protection and for mine.

Besides a a heard Tho news boys a asked Cloyne stopping a moment in front of our tent. A Hamilton Lias been promoted a big jump too for lies made first a a it san insult to the army a exclaimed Brainard. A Cha Milton say no i wont say what i was going to but he always Dodges a yes so our Captain told the colonel or so they say hut the colonel replied a it May be that lies no stomach for fighting but he knows How to care for the stomachs of men who do tight so lies to be regimental commissary and feed Tho regiment As Well As lies fed his company. In War bellies count for As much As a a a there a something to that a said Brainard a and i m glad Hamiltons found his proper place. That Isnit All. I la go at once and congratulate him on a a done to said cd Loyne putting an about brain Ned and looking Down into the Little chaps face with sad tender pitying eyes. A Why not a �?obecause�?0i1, hang the mysteries of this tormenting world because lies got a to a Day leave of absence. Hell be a fool if he does t go to new York get into an officers uniform then hurry out to Summerton Call on of the girls and a Brainard twitched himself from Cloyne sarm looked up to heaven and Shook his fist savagely at the great White throne. Then How lashed into our tent and dropped on his Knees. I one. 1 had no weapon with me but the i always carried in my i for it a �1 tool of nil work l i i ving i if Root Digger and half a ii i ii other things. It would at Hast s. 1 pc for self defense in a hand to hand Tirb. And tights of this character win in almost unknown to us thanks to the enemy a objection to getting within close reach of us. At the worst i would have the Honor and pleasure of being a present for duty should the affair prove serious. My horse was As Good As flip Best so 1 soon passed through the Village and galloped along the Richmond Road for the Hoof prints in the dust showed that the regiment had taken that route. A Mcd though 1 was buy sense of exhilaration was intense. Over this same Road had passed in other Days Tho Patriot soldiers of two wars even great Washington himself. In my regiment was no longer at an out of the Way outpost that and been held a year Only to be told that it was not wort i holding. We were now really in Tho enemy a country and with a possibility of seeing service of sufficient importance to be mentioned in the newspapers. In fact my Bead got so far into the Clouds that i neglected to Koep my eyes on the Road which is the worst Blunder of which a trooper can be guilty. When i did Chance to glance downward it was to discern that Only a few horsemen had preceded me. It did not take me Long to learn that the few did not belong to the enemy for on the moist ground beside a Small Stream that crossed the Road i saw the prints of horseshoes and their Nail Heads. The enemy a troop horses were Unsod As a Rule. I Rode some minutes longer Ami was suddenly stopped by a familiar voice shouting a come in Here be Little Chivil a twas the voice of sergeant Mick Mcswyny who had been detached with Liis platoon to a a watch a portion of a crossroad far to the right of the old Post Road. 11 is platoon of 10 men consisted principally on this occasion of his own gang. A Birds of a Feather flock but Brainard was also in it. A somebody lend me a revolver merely As a matter of form a said i a in Case anything May happen. I was in the fort when the regiment came out. I Hadnot time to go Back to Camp for my things so i just came along on general a a that a the thing a said sergeant Mick with a Tigeris Grin that was meant for an approving smile. The plat a on seemed to to to be in great Luck. It was a hot Day tie men were dismounted and resting at Case their sabers strapped to the saddles in the Shade 011 the Edge of a Forest in front of which was an abandoned Bare Plantation at least half a mile Square. A gentle Breeze from the Northwest blew refreshingly. The line Between the open ground and the Forest was marked by a rail Fence How this had escaped the campfires of the hundreds of thousands of Northern and Southern soldiers who had tramped the Peninsula was a mystery to me except that it seemed a great Way from the Richmond Road which had been the Bone of Contention. Mick leaned upon this Fence and appeared to undergo a transfiguration for he looked intelligent Ami seemed to have something on his mind besides liquor tobacco and a desire to snarl at some one. As already intimated my head had been in the Clouds for an hour so i a pulled myself up Sharp by reminding myself that Mick though a sergeant and therefore my Superior officer was merely a Summerton a Tough a with All that the name implied.

A git on yer horse.11 quickly tie Tho tent strings on the outside an intimation that no one was at Home and hurried to Cloyne Stout. Cloyne exclaimed a poor Brainard a a you knew about Here nil Thorn a 6ail 1. A a Haven to l Oyes who replied. A yes a i answered for i saw that his eyes were wet. A but give me paper and pen and Ink and envelope Quick and i la try a flanking i wrote my Cousin May a Long letter telling her of Hamiltons Luck nud also of its cause and intimating that should Hamilton s father Ever lose his Money Phil would be abundantly qualified to become Bead Cook in a restaurant. This might have been an insult to the personnel of the army s entire commissary Force which contained thousands of Superb fighters though none of them was expected to Light but i knew May would t construe it in that Way. Then i told of brain Ards a successful dispatch carrying which lie bad pretended was done by me and of Bis work in the fight at the Bridge and How Many compliments he had received for it. I continued with a description of brain Ned in ids bunk after the might looking with tearful eyes alternately at her picture and in lds Mirror at his Bullet furrowed Check and i concluded by saying that Tho scar that remained was Moro coveted by All of tis As an honorable decoration than if it bad been a major general a shoulder straps. To be sure that the letter would reach its destination As soon us possible i Rode with it to the general Post office at Post Headquarters in the fort a mile away. I bad scarcely reached the fort when a sound somewhat resembling the rumble of a Distant railway train caused me to look Over my shoulder and i saw half a mile behind to the entire regiment approaching at the Gallop. A i Seo Here a divided duty a i quoted to myself from a Othello a but i did not hesitate. Whatever the danger to the Post and Tho nation both had hundreds of champions in Tho regiment Brainard bad but one so i Rode into the fort and did not leave until i bad found the postmaster and placed my letter in his bands. When 1 emerged the regiment had passed the fort and was disappearing in the Village. To return to Camp for my Saber carbine and pistol would leave to 1u or 15 minutes behind my comrades and a a Stern Chase is a Long sides 1 still was without a shooting i looked about me at the men lying at ease beside the Fence their horses being tied to Trees near them. I started to ask Brainard for carbine or revolver it mattered not which when Miek shouted a co spyral Frost take me carbine and lift into yer pockets the cartridges from me Box an take some a me percussion Caps. 01 think Oil la be after doing most no me Fig Hting wid me Eye an then he looked about the men on the ground approached a Small Man who owned a big horse kicked him gently and said a git on yer horse and go like a Milkman that a been on a do trunk and woke up two hours late. Find the Reg mint an Tell the colonel that the whole Tribil army is a Condo across the Field be Yantz All the men on the ground jumped to their feet As the messenger proceeded to obey orders and they saw almost half a mile away a Gray line that might have been mistaken for the shimmering a heat band that lies near the surface of any Flat open dry ground on a very hot Day had not the line been flecked with spots of color Anil topped at regular intervals by spots that resolved themselves through troopers eyes into mounted men. A twas not As Mick had said the whole rebel army but it was at least a regiment probably a brigade advancing slowly in line of Battle formation the mounted officers in the rear. We were but a Quarter of a company. And our regiment was where and we were so far from Summerton or any part of the North to he continued. They found Tho Tati. During a spell of particularly hot a it other a Well known baronet came across three workmen engaged on a Job in Bis estate. One of them remarked a. Workmen not infrequently do on the dryness of the Job. The heat had perhaps extended itself to the baronet a temper. At any rate be turned away with Tho reply a if you Are thirsty you know where the Well is. You will find a pail thinking Over his remark a Little later it flashed across the baronet a mind that be had Given orders for three bottles of Champagne to be put into the pall and lowered into the Well to Cool for dinner. He hastened to the Well and discovered a three empty bottles what he said this time is not reported. A London truth. Sin promoter.
