The general repressed an expression of impatient incredulity. Exclaimed Margaret driven to desperation by his manner t made a compact with you to guide your men Here. I Luciew you did not Trust me. But i did not suppose you v. Oui Luuru me i follow you the general retorted a slight color Ting ing his Cheek. T am a Soldier doing a Soldier s duty. The Success or defeat of an army de pends on my watchfulness and i will never sleep till my work is a com and i am worn out with your Perse cried Margaret despairingly. Either leave me to do the work i greed to do or take me Home and kill there was a shot in the Valley be Low and More in Quick succession. The general sprang for his horse which was nipping the grass near by and Mcullo Lew untied the hitching strap from a tree holding the rein while the general mounted. I called where do you join Ray escort to the Plantation As fast As my horse will carry can you get i most get he was about to Spur away when fell Dew called to him and said some thing to him which we could not he looked Back at Jmargaret and me with a Peculiar expression then hear ing More firing below Rode away. I said that tallow faced Mellodew will be our ruin lie Lias said something to Poison the general against turning towards the Valley we saw three different bodies of Confederate cavalry approaching the Point where we bad heard the firing. We watched and listened but beyond an occasional Ftp ref stint. Jit it l Pothin and Thi foliage was too thick for us to see what was going on. Llali an hour after casting my eyes to the opposite Hill i saw the general and a few of his escort on the Crest. Lie waved his hat to us then turning followed by his men disappeared. The real sentry. We set about making our preparations for the Day without a word concerning the general s visit. After breakfast Margaret and i went out of the Cive into the sunlight and stood looking flown the Valley. How Long before our watching will prove effective or asked mar Jaret. What we expect does not occur soon i fear it will not occur at and i must return to my i did not reply but looked gloomily out upon the Valley. Turning my eyes to the South Ray attention was attracted by what appeared to be a Small White Dot. What s i asked. A Wagon an army agon. 1 -. C seen to Many of them that i would know one and there s i exclaimed a second emerged from behind a Hill. A Wagon slowly Wagon after Wagon into Rcw till a whole train could to seen take a Wiite linked worm crawling up the Valley. I Doti t see what that s i muttered they have the Railroad for any transportation they May it looks As if they were going to use both wagons and said mar Garet. You have quite a head for guessing i remarked surprised at her foresight. This was the first evidence 1 had encountered of Margaret s think ing ability i was to have plenty of it soon during the Day we noticed stray squadrons of rebel cavalry northward. A Small drove of cattle made its appearance in the South jogged along Over the Road and passed out of sight. Another Wagon appeared toiled slowly past and disappeared. Then a larger body of cavalry went by perhaps 500 men. I expectantly for bigger game but was disappointed. Nothing More of importance appeared and i gave up my expectation of some momentous occur rence. When we began on watch for the night Margaret insisted on taking part. I said. 1 mean you suppose two Able bodied men would permit a weak woman to Divide a watch with and i stalked away without deign us another word. Plunk As before had the first watch. At 32 o clock i an walked to the Edge of the Declivity to begin my Vigil. The weather was splendid and i was Regulla Tutu an Ouier View lighted by the Moon. I made up my mind to Pace a beat like a Sentinel that i might be sure to keep i chose two Trees Between which to walk and continued to rest. Then i took ten minutes off. After that i walked again till three o clock when the Absurdity of walking an imaginary beat to watch for something that had Only a Remote possibility of occurring struck me with such Force that i sat Down on a Rock put my elbows on my Knees and rested my head in Niy hands. The last thing i remember Wae congratulating myself that if any remarkable event should take place i was in exactly the position to see it. The a second time i had been caught sleeping on Post. I looked up and saw Margaret standing beside me. It was Broad Day. T beg your Pardon i i stammered. five thousand cavalry were March ing northward through the Valley. Whoever has seen such a sight can never forget it. Five thousand men and 5.000 horses. First Rode a thin line deployed across the Road its wings sex lending to the right and to the left.

They were moving steadily but horses will not have the same gait and Here and there a Squadron that had fallen behind was pushing along at a brisk Trot or a Gallop to overtake the corps to which it belonged. I exclaimed springing up you have won. There Are the Cav Alry the infantry will go by the rail As i spoke we lit Ard a whistle to the South a rumbling a puffing and along came a train. It was loaded with troops. They filled the cars the plat forms they swarmed on the roofs. With a screech from the locomotive they passed and were lost in the Dis Tance. Another whistle another train.

The destruction the worm works is incredible. In 1733 it found that the vast system of wooden Dykes that protected Holland from tin sea had been attacked by the Teredo and that the whole country was threat ened with inundation from these examples it can be seen what a dreaded Little animal it is. The adult Teredo when removed front its Burrow varied from a few inches to three feet in length according to the species and is cylindrical and worm like in appearance. However there is also a Teredo Gigantes or giant Teredo which is found buried in the mud at Sumatra and is from four to six feet in length and from three to four inches in diameter. The Teredo inhabits a Long cylindrical Hole which it in trip Wood and it usually occurs in great numbers so crowded together that often Only a thin film remains Between the adjacent one Burrow never found to break into another.
