Copyright 1902, by the Hobart company. Chapter . And there in the hallway throwing off his heavy overcoat and there with that Ever faithful aide in attendance was the chief they loved dropped in All unsuspecting1, just to Tsay Good Bye. A i knocked twice a began Hogan but Ray brushed him aside for catching sight of the captains face the general was already at the door. Another moment and he had discovered Field and with both hands extended All kindliness and sympathy he stepped at once across the room to Greet him. Quot i was so very sorry to hear the news a said he. A i knew your father Well in the old Days. How a your wound what brought you Back so soon a and then there was one instant of awkward silence and then Ray spoke. A i hat was my doing general. I believed it Hest that he should be Here to meet you and revery allegation at his expense. Or. Field i feel sure does not begin to know them yet especially As to the a it was All recovered a said the general. Quot it was found almost intact so was much of that that they took from Hay. Even if it Hadnot been. Hay assumed All responsibility for the with new bewilderment in his face the Young officer still White and trembling was gazing half stupid fed from one to the other. A what Money a lie demanded. Quot i never heard a a an Ait Quot said the general with significant glance at Ray who was about to speak. Quot i am to see them mrs. Hay and her Niece at nine of clock. It is near that now. Webb cannot be with us but i shall want you Blake. Say nothing until then. Sit Down or. Field and Tell me about that leg. Can you walk from Here to Hayes i wonder a then the ladies mrs. Ray and her charming next door neighbor appeared and the general adjourned the conference forthwith and went with them to the parlor. A say nothing More a Ray found time to whisper. A a you la understand it ail in 20 and at nine o a clock the Little party was on its Way through the Sharp and wintry night the general and capt. Blake Side by Side ahead the aide de Camp and or. Field close following. Or. Aller who had been sent for met them near the office. The sentries at the guard House were being changed As the five tramped by along the snapping and protesting Board walk and a sturdy Little Chap in fur Cap and gauntlets and huge Buti Alo overcoat caught site of them and facing outward slapped his carbine Down to the carry the night signal of Soldier recognition of Superior rank As practice at the time. A Tablet Are turned with a vengeance said the general with his quiet smile. A a that a Little Kennedy in t it ? i seem to see him everywhere when we re campaigning. Moreau was going to eat his heart out next time they met i a so he said a grinned Blake Quot before Winsor a Bullet fetched him. I Ity it had t killed instead of crippling a a he a a bad lot a sighed the general. A the Little mixture of White blood in his veins has spoiled him utterly. Wing wont Fly away from Kennedy. I a not if there a a shot left in Belt said Blake. A and Ray officer of the Day. There la be capping it it a guard this at the barred aperture that served for window on the southward front a dark face peered Forth in malignant hate As the speakers strode by. But it shrank Hack when the sentry once More to veil his carbine to the his is no shoulder and briskly trudged beneath the bars. Six indians shared that prison room four of their number destined to exile in the Distant East to years perhaps within the casimates of a Seaboard fort the last place on Earth for a son of the warlike Sioux. A they know their Fate i understand said Blake As the general moved on again. A ooh yes. Their agent and others have been Here with Indian Bureau orders permitting them to see and talk with the prisoners. Their shackles Are to be riveted on tonight. Nearly time now Isnit it a Quot at Tattoo sir. The whole guard forms then and the four Are to be moved into the main room for the purpose. I am glad this is the last of a yes Well Start them with Flint at Dawn in the morning. Hell be More than glad to get away too. He has t been Over Lucky Here a strange Domestic the my drat ii having been Given warning and removed to Studsville showed them into the traders Roomy Java Flor the largest and most pretentious at the Post. Hay had lavished Money on his Home and loved it and the woman who had so adorned it. She came in almost instantly to Greet _ v p them looking piteously into the kindly bearded face of the general and civilly yet absently welcoming the others. She did not seem to realize that Field who had stood in silence by the Side of capt. Blake had been away. She had no thought apparently for any one but the chief himself a he who held the destinies of her dear ones in the hollow of his hand. His first question was for Fawn eyes the Little Ogallala Maiden whose history he seemed to know. Quot she is Well and trying to be Content with was the reply. Quot she has been helping poor Nanette she does not seem to understand or realize what is coming to him. Have they a a coned him yet a Quot i believe said the general. A but it has to be done to night. They Start so Early in the Quot and Yon wont let her see him general. To Good can come from it. She declares she will go to him in the morning if you prohibit it tonight Quot and the richly jewelled hands of the unhappy woman were clasped almost in supplication. A by morning he will be beyond her reach. The escort starts at a a and these gentlemen Here a a she looked nervously appealingly about her. A must they All know a a these and the inspector general. He will be Here in a moment. But indeed mrs. Hay it is All known practically a said the general with sympathy and sorrow in his tone. A not ally not All general even i done to know All a she herself has said so. Hush she a she was there they had listened for swish of skirts or fall of slender feet upon the stairway but there had not been a sound. A they saw the reason As she halted at the Entrance lifting with one Little hand the costly Navajo Blanket that Hung As a Portiero. In Harmony with the Glossy folds of richly dyed Wool she was habited in Indian garb from head to foot. Iii two Black Lustrous braids twisted with Feather and Quill and ribbon Lier wealth of hair Hung Over her shoulders Down the front of her slender form. A Robe of dark Blue stuff Rich with Broider of coloured Bead and Bright hued plumage Hung close clinging and her Lect were shod in soft moccasins also deftly worked with Bead and Quill. But it was Lier face that chained the gaze of All and that Drew from the pallid lips of Lieut. Field a gasp of mingled consternation and amaze. Without a vestige of color with Black circles under her glittering eyes with lines of suffering around the rigid Mouth and with i lint strange pinched look about the nostrils that tells of anguish bodily and mental Nanette stood at the doorway looking straight at the chief. She had no eyes for lesser lights. All her thought apparently was for him for him whose Power it was in spite of vehement opposition. To Deal As he saw fit with the prisoner in his hands. Appeal on part of friends societies peace and Indian associations had failed. The president had referred the matter in its entirety to the general commanding the Field and tin general had decided. One moment she studied his face then came slowly Forward. No hand extended. No Sig n of salutation greeting much less of homage. Ignoring All others present she addressed herself solely to him. Is it True you have ordered him in Irons and to fort Rochambeau a she demanded. A it simply because he took part with Bis people when your soldiers made War on them a she asked her Pale lips quivering. \ of Well know How much else there was a answered the general simply. A and i have told you he deserves no pity of of \ on say he came Back Here a spy she broke Forth impetuously. A it is not so Ile never came near the Post nearer than stabbers Village and there he had a right to be. I of say twas be who led them to the Warpath that he planned the robbery Here and took the Money. He never knew they were going till they were gone. He never stole a Penny. That Money was loaned him honestly and for a purpose and with tin Hope and expectation of Rich profit a by you do you mean a asked the general calmly As before. A by me no what Money had i he asked it and it was Given him by Lieut. a Gas that was almost a cry following instant v on this insolent among the officers at whom she had not As yet As much As glanced now caused the girl to turn one Swift contemptuous look their Way and in that momentary Flash her eyes encountered those of the Man she had j thus accused. Field stood like one turned suddenly to Stone gazing at her with wild incredulous eyes. One instant Slit seemed to Sway As though the sight had staggered her but the rally was As instantaneous. Before the general could interpose a word she plunged on again a butt least had a heart and conscience. Ile knew How wrongfully Moreau had been accused that Mone was actually needed to establish his claim. It would All have been repaid if your soldiers had not forced this wicked War and a and now in Lier vehemence her eyes were dashing her hand uplifted when All on a sudden the Portiero was raised the second time and there at the door Way stood the former inspector general. A Black at sight of him the mad flow of words met sudden Stop. Down slowly Down came the clinched uplifted hand. Her eyes glaring As were Fields a moment Agone were fixed in awful fascination on the grizzled face. Then actually she recoiled As the Veteran officer stepped quietly for Ward into the room. A and what a said he with Placid interest. A i Haven to hear you rave in Many a Moon. Nanette. You Are your Kotlier Over again without your mothers excuse for but a wondrous silence had fallen on the group. The girl had turned rigid. For an instant not a move was made and in the hush of All but throbbing hearts the sound of the trumpets pealing Forth the last notes of Tattoo came softly through the outer night. Then sudden close at hand yet muffled by double door and windows came other sounds sounds of Rush and Scurry excited voices cries of halt halt a the ring of a carbine a yell of warning another shot and Blake and the aide de Camp sprang through the hallway to the storm door without. Mrs. Hay shuddering with dread ran to the door of her husbands chamber beyond the dining room. She was gone but a moment. When she returned the Little Ogallala maid trembling and wild eyed had come running Down from aloft. The general had followed into the lighted hallway they were All crowding there by this time and the voice of capt. Ray with just a tremor of excitement about it was heard at the storm door on the porch in explanation to the chief. Moreau sir broke guard and stabbed Kennedy. The second shot dropped him. He wants Fawn eyes his a scream of agony rang through the Hall shrill and piercing. Then the wild cry followed a you shall not hold me let me go to him i say i am his wife a chapter xxiv. I hat was a gruesome night at i Wayne. Just at Tattoo the door Lead ing to the Little cell room had been t Brown open and the sergeant of the guard bade tile four prisoners come Forth All warriors of the Ogallala band and Foremost of their number was Eagle Wing the Battle Leader. Assertion a a the second better aimed pierced the recaptured by Crabb and his men after a desperate flight and fight for Liberty he had apparently been planning Ever since a second essay even More desperate in sullen silence he had passed his Days showing no sign of recognition of any face among Bis guards until the morning Kennedy appeared All malice forgotten now that his a cold be Slayer was a helpless prisoner and therefore did the Dishman Greet him jovially. A that Man would knife you if he had half a Chance a said the sergeant. A watch out for him a a you bet in Ujj watch out a said Kennedy never dreaming that despite All sea re ii and vigilance Moreau had managed to obtain and hide a knife. In silence they had shuffled Forth into the corridor. The heavy Portal swung behind them confining the other two. Another door opened into the guard room proper where stood the big red hot stove and where waited two blacksmiths with the Irons. Once in the guard room t v by Xiv window was barred and members of tin guard three deep blocked in eager curiosity the doorway leading to Tjie outer air. In the corridor on one Side stood three infantry soldiers with fixed bayonets. On the other facing them three other of the guard. Between them shuffled the Sioux a a Wing leading. One glance at the waiting Black by to s f f a Tiger he hurled himself head Foremost and bending Low straight at the open doorway and split his Way through the astonished guards like Center Rush at football scattering them right and left then darted round Tho Corner of the guardhouse agile As a cat. And there was Kennedy confronting him one furious lunge he made with gleaming knife then shot like an Arrow straight for the southward Tiff. It was bad judgment. He rusted to Speed to dim Starlight to bad aim perhaps but the Little irishman dropped on one knee and the first Bullet Tore through the Muscles of a Stalwart Arm the second better aimed pierced the vitals. Then they were on him men by the oxen in another instant As he stagers and fell there impotent and writhing. I hey bore him to the cell again tilt Hospital was too far and Wallet and his aides came speedily to do All that surgery could accomplish but he cursed them Back. Ile raved at Ray who entered leading poor sobbing Little Fawn eyes and demanded to be left alone with Lier. Waller went out to minister to Kennedy bleeding fast and the others looked to Ray for orders when the door was once More opened and Blake entered with Nanette. A by rile general a order a said he in Brief explanation and in an instant she was on her Knees beside the dying Sioux. There and thus they left them. Waller said there was nothing to be done. The Junior surgeon Tracy he whom she had so fascinated Only those few weeks before Bent Ami whispered a Call me if you need. I shall remain within but there came no Call. At taps the door was once More softly opened and Tracy peered within. Fawn eyes rocking to and fro was sobbing in an abandonment of grief. Nanette face downward Lay prone upon a stilled and lifeless heart. Flint and his escort duly went their Way and spread their Story As they camped at Laramie and a the i he general tarried another week at fray be. There was still very much to keep him there so not until he and a Black Bill came Down did we at other stations learn the facts. The general As usual had Little to say. The colonel talked for both. To be continued Alexander Smith Cago was third. A fasting traveler. It is almost impossible in Macedonia to get anything to eat on St. Johns Day because a fast ii kept there in commemoration of the be j heading of St. John the a Baptist. The author of Quot the tale of a tour in Macedonia says that at Serges he found a state of things he hat never expected to encounter a whole town in a starving condition. He went to the hotel keeper and remonstrated with him humorously. A my dear sir a said he a is it just is it right is it saintly is is even reasonable that i should condemn myself to the worst of deaths be i cause St. John some 12,000 years ago had his head Cut off a a it is not lawful to argue about such matters was the serious reply. I do not wish to argue. I wish to at length by dint of Money patience and persuasion the traveler managed to obtain a Little bread and cheese and some grapes and w till these he had to be Content until the fast was Outh s and athletics i under conditions which were anything but Good Alexander Smith the _ professional of the i ill la Llull a Jhk Nassau country club of Glencove l. I., won the Western open Golf championship at Milwaukee with the remarkably Good score of 318 strokes. Laurence Auchterlonie o f the Glenview Golf club and David Brown of Wollaston mass., tied for second place and Henry Turpie of Auburn Park Chi Lawrence Eustis of new Orleans who is also a member of the Milwaukee country club led the amateurs with a score of 328, Nathaniel f. Moore of exmoor being second with 333, and Louis n. James the National Champion third six strokes behind Young Moore. Alexander Smith the Champion is a native of Carnoustie Scotland and is 29 years old. He is a brother of will Bmith of Midlothian and was professional at the Washington Park club in Chicago for three years beginning in 1898, when he arrived Here from Scotland. Laurence Auchterlonie of Glenview was the National open Champion last year the second open title Holder of the Western Golf association. Exmoor and Onwe Tsia Golf clubs introduced an innovation recently not Only for Western Golf circles but for the whole country in a 43-Man team match on the links of the Lake Forest club. So successful vets the event that there is very Little doubt but what an affair of this kind will be an annual feature of these two clubs As Well As Many other local organizations. There Are indications that it May become a fad in a very Short time. On Ensia the Home team won. Though by the narrow margin of 5 up. Among those prominent in the Competition were h. Chandler Egan. Walter Egan of exmoor and w. H. Yule Brice d. Smith e. P. Cobb and a. Poole jr., of on Wentsie. Morbid mental states. Misanthropy selfishness and narrowness Are productive of disease. Misers Are almost always melancholy and dyspeptic. Thousands become ill by entering their minds upon themselves and attaching too great significance to minor symptoms. The writer once met a Quot Man who was quite terrified thinking he was Likely to suffer from an attack of apoplexy at any moment simply because he now and then Felt a Peculiar tingling or other sensation in one of his legs. Persons suffering from neurasthenia Are very Likely to aggravate their maladies by introspection. The mind should be helpfully occupied by useful employment. An Active interest in philanthropic work of various sorts is a useful Means of counteracting the. Tendenes to self entering which often accompanies chronic invalid ism. Thus one May help himself by helping his Good health. By the Short cot. One of the great newspapers is printed in an office that has three full stories below the ground level the enormous presses resting on foundations even below this depth. An a old subscriber came to look at the establishment one Day and the business manager showed him round. They had inspected the editorial and composing rooms and the business offices and last of All they went to look at the engines and presses. The stairway leading Down to the basement had several landings and to the visitor it seemed that the journey would never end. A Well a he gasped As they stood at last on the very Bottom floor a i see you have arranged to get your news from China by the shortest route a youths companion. The most remarkable record Ever made by a College Pitcher was made during the Spring College baseball season by Michael j. Lynch twirler for Brown University. In the last game against Columbia he struck out 21 men. His performance in the Box against All of the Eastern colleges was certainly wonderful. He let Down Harvard with 4 hits and 8 strike outs Penn Michael j. Lynch Sylvania 6 hits 15 strike outs Yale 3 hits 14 strike outs Georgetown 6 hits 14 strike outs Princeton 3 hits and 12 strike outs. In All of these games the opposing tears were shut out. In the Harvard game he retired the first three batters on strikes. In the game against William he retired three batters on nine pitched balls. Not Only was Lynch a great Pitcher but a Strong hitter. As a fielder he had a percentage of 1,000. To has had offers from most of the professional league managers of the country one club alone offered him $5,000 a year. He refused Many offers to go into the business As a professional but will remain at Brown University two More years when he will graduate. He is a six footer and weighs 175 pounds. Quot Ruben Waddell the sensational left hander of the Philadelphia athletics when he fanned 14 of the White sox batters recently was credited with having established a new professional strike out record. While the performance is the Banner one of the season in the Junior league it has been beaten. Charley Sweeney the old Providence Pitcher in a game at Boston in 1884, fanned 19 batsmen in a nine inning game. That record has stood Ever since. Sweeney a Brilliant strike out record has never been equated and bids fair to stand through another generation. The american league has won a double Victory in its latest fight Writh the National body. An injunction has been secured enjoining Davis from playing with the new York National league club until August 6, and the injunction preventing Elberfeld from playing with the american league team has been temporarily dissolved. Mcgraw holds the record for tender years in playing professional baseball. He had not reached his sixteenth birthday when he started his professional career with the Olean n. A team. He is 30 years old now. This is his fourteenth year As a professional. Of a family thai me. A family named Pennon Story there is living in the North of England whose original name was Purvis. Two Hundred years ago Frank Purvis turned pirate and was killed fighting on his ship. The family then decided to relinquish the name of Purvis and take that of Pennon and Ever since the eldest son of he family on attaining his majority signs a pledge that he Vav 111 not resume the name of Purvis. The pledge has been handed Down from father to son and Bour a f a t now ii i rom Tamer to sound of Sui and Start Smiths was enough. With the Spring some fifty signatures. Another match has been arranged Between Jimmy Britt of California and Jack of Keefe of Chicago after considerable argument. Articles of agreement for a 20-round bout to be decided at san Francisco on july 31, have been signed. The Mill will be at catch weights. This will be the third scrap Between the two. Their first Dight resulted in a Victory for of Keefe on a foul and following this go they battled for 20 rounds to a draw. F. S. Kelley of Balliol College Oxford Winner of the Diamond sculls at Henley also won the Wingfield sculls and the Amateur sculling championship of England. He easily Defeated a. Ii.
