ALICE of OLD !l!

A ntisONiin OF LOVE.
LICE put on her wannest
clothes and followed Captain
Farnswortb to the fort, realizing that no pleasant expert*
ence awaited her. The wind and ruin
Still prevailed when they were ready to
set forth, nnd, although it v>-ns not extremely cold, a searching chill went
with every throb that marked the
sto m's waves. No lights shone In the
village bouses. Overhead a gray gloom
covered stars and sky, making the
darkness iu the wntery streets seem
densely black. Farnswortb offered Alice bis arm, but she did nut accept It.
"I know the way better than you do,"
she said. "Como on, and don't bo
afraid tbat I am going to run. 1 shall
not play any trick on you."
"Very well, mndemolselle, ns you
like.  I trust you."
Th.y hastened along until n lantern
ln the fort shot a hazy gleiini upon
"Stop a moment, mndemolselle,"
Farnswortb called. "I say, Miss Itoussillon, stop a moment, please."
Alice halted and turned, facing him
so short and so suddenly that the rapier
ln his band pricked through her wrap
and slightly scratched her arm.
"What do you mean,  sir?" she demanded,  thinking that lie had thrust
purposely.   "Do I deserve this brutal-
"You mistake me, Miss Roussillon. I
... cannot be brutal to you now. Do not
fear mc. I only had a word to sny."
_ "Oh, you deem it very polite and gen-
/" ffe td-Jab me with your sword, do yon?
It I bad one In my band you would
not dare try such a thing, nud you
know It very well."
He was amazed, not knowing that
the sword point lind touched her. He
could not sec her face, but there wns a
flash In her voice that startled liJm
with Its indignant contempt und resentment.
"What are yon saying, Miss Ronssll-
. lou ? I don't understand you. When
did I ever—when did I Jab you with
my sword? I never thought of such a
"Tliis moment, sir, you did, nnd you
know you did. My arm is bleeding
She spoke rapidly ln French, but be
caught her meaning and for the flrst
became aware of the rnpler in his
hand. Even then Its point was toward
her and very near her breast, ne lowered lt Instantly while tho truth rushed
Into his mind.
"Forgive me," he murmured, his
words barely audible in the tumult of
wind and rain, but charged with the
Intenscst feeling.
"Forglye mc. I did not know. It wns
an accld--.it. I could not do such a
thing purposely. Relieve me, believe
me. Mis* Roussillon. I did not moan
"I should like to believe yon," she
presently snld, "but I cannot. You
English are all, nil despicable, mean,
'Some time you shall not say that."
Fnr-psworth responded. "I nsked yon

that It wus purely accidental."
"My hurt ls nothing," she said.
"I am very glad."
"Well, then, shnll we go on to the

She turned her buck upon blm and
without nn answering word wnlked
straight to the lantern that hung lathe gate of the stockade, where u senil-
ncj tramped to and fro. A few moments later Curtnln Farnswortb presented her to Hnmllton, who had been
called from bis bed when the news of
the trouble at Itousslllon place reached
the fort.
''So you've been raising trouble again,
have yoll, miss?" he growled, with nn
- m|Jy frown darkening his fnce.
'I beg your pardon," snid Fnrnsworth, "Miss Itousslllon was not to
blame for"—
"In your eyes she'd not be to blame,
sir, If she burned up the fort and nil of
us In It," Hamilton gruffly Interrupted.
"Miss, what have you been doing?
What nro you here for? Captain Fnrns-
wprtk, you will please stute the particulars of the trouble that I have just
heard about. And I may ns well notify
you thnt I wish to hear no special lover's pleading In this girl's behalf."
Farnsworlh's face whitened wltb anger. He bit his Up, and a shiver run
through his flume, hut he bad to conquer the passion. In n few words
blunt nnd direct us musket balls bo
told nil the circumstances of whnt bad
taken place,  making no concealments
to favor Alice, but boldly blaming the
officer of the patrol, Lieutenant Barlow, for losing his head and attacking
a young girl In her own home.
"I will hear from Bnrlow," said
Ilnmlltou after listening attentively to
the story. "Hut take this girl nnd confine her. Show her no favors. I hold
you responsible for her until tomorrow
morning.  You can retire."
There wns no room for discussion.
Farusworth saluted and turned to
"Come with me," he gently said.
Hamilton looked nfter them ns they
went out of Ids room, n curious smllo
playing around his firmly set lips.
"She's the most beautiful vixen that
I ever snw," lie thought. "She doesn't
look to be n French girl either; decidedly English." lie shrugged his shoulders, then laughed dryly. "I'nrns-
worth's as crazy as cnn be, the beggar;
In love with her so deep thnt he can't
seo out. By Jove, she is a benuty!
Never saw such eyes. And plucky to
bent tho deuce. I'll bet iuy bend Barlow Ml be daft about ber next!"
Still,  notwithstanding the  lightness
of his Inward comments, Hnmllton regarded the Incident ns rather serious.
He knew thnt the French Inhabitants
were secretly  his bitter enemlcB,  yet
probably willing, lf he  would humor
their peculiar social, domestic and commercial prejudices, to refrain from active hostilities, and even to aid him ln

have   grent   difficulty   defending   the

had more influence witb both Creoles
and  savages  than  nny  other  person

presence to a small room connected -
witb a considerable structure in a distant angle of the stockade. Neither bo
nor Alice spoke on the way. With a
huge wooden key he unlocked the door
and stepped aside for her to enter. A
dim lamp was burning within, Its yellowish light flickering over the scant
furniture, which consisted of a comfortable bed, a table with some books
on it, three chairs, a smnll looking

smoldered 111 the fireplace. Alice did
not falter at the threshold, but promptly entered lier prison.
"I hope you can be comfortable,"
Bald Farnswortb In a low tone. "It's the

"Thank you," was the answer, spoken

stood by the fireplace. At n glnnco she
comprehended thnt the place wns not

Instantly Hamilton's choler rose. He
tried to suppress lt nt llrst, but when
he snw Alice actually laughing, and
Farnswortb, who hud brought ber In,
biting his lip furiously to keep from
.adding an uproarious guffaw, be lost
all bold of himself.
"I might have known better than to
expect decency from n wench of your

capable of accepting kindness politely."
"1 am sure, monsieur, lhat I have but

Her voice, absolutely witching In Its
softness, freshness and suavity, helped
the assault of her eyes, while ber dimples twinkled nnd ber hair shone.
Hamilton felt his henrt move strangely,
but ho could uot forbear saying ln English:
"If you arc ss very truthful, miss,
you will probably tell me where tho
flag is that yon stole and hid."
It was always the missing banner
that came to mind when he saw her.
"Indeed, I will do nothing of tbe
sort," she promptly replied. "Wben
you seo that flag again you will be a
prisoner, and I will wave lt high over
your bend."
She lifted n bnnd ns she Bpoke and
made the motion of shaking a bnnner
above him. It wns exasperation sweetened almost to delight that took bold of
the sturdy Briton. He liked pluck, especially Hi u woman, nil the more If
she wns beautiful, yet the very fact
thnt ho felt- her charm falling upon
him set him hard against her, not as
Hamilton the man, but as Hamilton
the commander nt Vlncennes.'
"You think to fling yourself upon me
as you huve upon Captain Farnsworlh," be snid, with an insulting leer
nud In a tone of prurient Innuendo. "I
am not susceptible, my denr." This
more for Farnswortb's benefit than to
insult her, ulbeit he was not in » mood
to cure.
"Y'ou nre a coward and a liar!" she
exclaimed, her face flushing with hot
shame. "Y'ou stand here," she quickly
added, turning fiercely upon Farusworth, "and quietly listen to such
words! Y'ou, too, are a. coward lf you
do not make him retract! Oh, you English are low brutes!"
Hamilton laughed, but Farnswortb
looked dark and troubled, bis glance
going back nnd forth from Alice to his
commander as lf another word would
cause him to do something terrible.
"I rather think I've beard nil that 1
cere to hear from you, miss," Hnmllton presently snld. "Captnln Farusworth, you will seo that the prisoner ls
confined ln the. proper place which, 1
suggest to you, ls not your sleeping

"Colonel Hamilton," snld Farnswortb lu u husky voice, "I slept on the
ground under a shed last nlgbt In order
that Miss Itoussillon might be somewhat comfortable."
"Humph! Well, see that you do net
do it again. This girl Is guilty of harboring a spy and resisting a lawful attempt of my guards to capture him.
Conlluo her ln the place prepared for
prisoners and see that she stays there
until I am ready to fix ber punishment."
"There Is no place fit for n young girl
to stay In," Farusworth ventured.
"She can have no comfort or"—
"Takjj her along, sir. Any place ls

"Very well," Farnswortb bluntly, interrupted, thus saving Alice the stroke
of a vile comparison. "Come with mc,
please, Miss Itousslllon."
He pulled ber toward the door, then
dropped tbe nrm be had grasped and
murmured an apology.
She followed blm out, holding her
head high. No one looking on would
have suspected that a 6lnklng sensation ln her heart made it difficult for
her to walk or that her eyes, shining
like Btars, were so Inwardly clouded
with distress that she saw ber way but

"Why not shoot her yourself? Vou

Hamilton laughed nnd elevated his
shoulders as if to shake off nn annoying

white bandage around bis hock entered
nnd saluted. Ho wns n small, soft
haired, blue eyed man of reckless bearing, with marks of dissipation sharply
cut into his fnce. He saluted, smiling
self consciously.
"Well, Barlow," said nnmllton, "the

"Y'es, slightly, and I don't think I've

"How so?"
"I stood the liriint, and now Captnln

"Thnt's what I say," chimed In tin

] "They have been telling mo a cock

changing his manner. "Whnt Is this

"Ho was dressed like a priest," mut
tered Barlow, evidently frightened at

"That was all there was to see."

and looked at the floor. "This Father

"I have thought of him—it was like

tlvc. Why, I tell you that men went
from bis bauds against the walls and
floor as lf shot out of a mortar. It was
tho strangest and most astounding
thing I ever heard of."
A little later Bniiow seized a favorable opportunity and withdrew. Tli*
conversation was not to his liking.
Hamilton sent for Father Beret and
had a long tnlk with blm, but the old
mnn looked so childishly Inoffensive In
spirit and so collapsed physically that
It seemed worse than foolishness to accuse him of tbe exploit over which tb»
entire garrison was wondering. Fnins-
worth sat by during the interview. He
looked the good priest curiously and
critically over from head to root, remembering, but not mentioning, tho
most iniclericnl punch in the side received from that energetic right nrm
now lying so flabbily across tho old
man's lap.
When the talk ended and Fnther Beret humbly took bis leave, Hamilton
turned to Farnswortb and said:
"What do you think of this affair? I
have cross questioned all tlie men who
took part In it, nnd every one of them
snys simply priest or devil. I think old
Beret ls both, but plainly he couldn't
hurt a chicken; you can see that at a
Fnrnsworth smiled, rubbing his side
rcmlnisccntly, but he shook bis head.
"I'm sure it's puzzling, Indeed."
Ilumllton  snt In thoughtful  silence
for nwhlle, then abruptly changed the
"I think, captain, that you had better send out Lieutenant Barlow and
some of tbe best woodsmen to kill some
game. We need fresh venison, nnd, by
George, I'm not going to depend upon
theso French traitors nny longer. I
have set my foot down. They've got to
do better or take tho consequences."
He paused for n breath, then added:
"That girl has done (oo much to escape
severest punishment. The garrison will
he demoralized If this thing goes on
without nn example of authority rig-
Idly enforced. I am resolved tbnt there
shall bo n stnrfling nnd effective public

but It wns n grave offense. She has
stabbed Barlow. That Is nnother se> I
rtous crime: hut. worst of nil. she aid-1

Farnsworth knew Hamilton's nature,
and be now saw tbat Alice was ln
dreadful danger of deatn or something
even worse. No sooner had he left
headquarters and given Barlow his Instructions touching tbe hunting expedition than his mind began to wander
.mid visions and schemes by ne means
consistent with his military obligations.
In order to reflect undisturbed he went
forth into tlie dreary, lanclike streets of
Vlncennes nnd walked aimlessly here
and there until he met Father Beret.
Farnsworth saluted the old man and
was passing him by when, seeing a
sword ln his hand half hidden ln the
folds of bis worn aud faded cassock, he
turned nnd addressed him:
"Why are you armed this morning,
father?" he demanded very pleasantly.
"Who is to suffer now?"
"I am not on the warpath, my son,"
replied the priest "It is but • rapier
tbat I am going to clean of rust spots
Hint arc gathering on Its blade."
"Is it yours, father?   Let mo tee It"
'Jc held out his band.
"No; not mine.,"
Fnther Beret seemed not to notice
Ftiriisworth'B desire to handlo the
weapon, nnd the young man Instead of
repeating bis words reached farther,
nearly grasping the scabbard.
"I cannot let you tnke lt, my son,"
snld Father Beret. "You have its mate.
That should satisfy you."
"No; Colonel Hamilton took lt,"
Farnswortb quickly replied. "If I
could I would gladly return lt to Its
owner. I nm not n thief, father, and I
nm ashamed of—of—what I did wben I
was drunk."
Tho priest looked sharply Into Farnsworlh's eyes and read thero something
that reassured blm. His long experience had rendered him adept at taking n man's value at a glance. He
slightly lifted his face nnd said:
"Ah, but the poor little girl! Why do
you persecute her? She really does
not deserve lt. She ls a noble child.
Give her bnck to ber home and her people. Do not soil nnd spoil her sweet
It was the singsong volco used by
Father Beret In his sermons and prayers, but something went with it indc-
scrlhahly touching. Fnrnsworth felt a
lump rise ln his throat, and his eyes
wero ready to show tears.
"Father," be said with difficulty,
making his words distinct, "I would
not.harm Miss llousslllou to Bave my
own life, and I would do anything"—
lie paused slightly, then added with
passionate force, "I would do nny thing,
no matter what, to save her from the
terrible thing that now threatens her."
Father Beret's eniinteiinneo changed
ciiiioj4sl.v us r,e ga/.eu at tno young mac

"Father, by all that ls boly, I mean
Just whatl say."
"Swear not at all, my son, but give
me your band."
The two men stood with a tight grip
between tbem and exchanged a long,
steady, searching gaze.
A drizzling rain bad begun to fall
again, with a raw wind creeping from
tbe west.
"Come with me to my bouse, my son,"
Father Beret presently added, and together they went, tbe priest covering
Alice's sword from the rain with the
folds of his cassock.
Indian dialeets, which be turned upon
Long Hair to the best of his ability,
but apparently without effect. Nevertheless he babbled nt Intervals, always
upon the same subject and nlwnys endeavoring to influence that huge, stolid, henrtless savage in tlie direction of
letting hiin see again the child face of
the miniature.
When night came on again the band
camped under some trees beside a swoll-
viktue in j_ locket.
ONG HAIR stood not upon ceremony ln conveying to Beverley
tbe information that he was to
run the gantlet. The preparations were simple and quickly made.
Each man armed himself with a stick
three feet long and about three-quarters of an Inch ln diameter. Rough
weapons they were, cut from boughs of
scrub oak, knotty and tough ns horn.
Long Hnlr unbound bis body dowu to
the waist Then the lines formed, the
Indians in each row standing about us
far apart as tho width of the space In
wblcb tho prisoner wn3 to run. This
arrangement gave them free uso of
their sticks and plenty of room for full
swing of their lithe bodies.
In removing Beverley's clothes Long
Iinil* found Alice's locket hanging over
the young man's heart. Ho tore It
rudely off and grunted, glaring viciously flrst at lt, then nt Beverley. He
seemed to be mightily wrought upon.
"White man thief!" he growled deep
ln his throat.   "Stole from little girl!"
Ho put the locket In his pouch and
resumed his stupidly indifferent expression.
Wben everything was ready for the
delightful entertainment to begin Long
Hair waved his tomahawk three times
over Beverley's head and, pointing
down between the waiting lines, said:
"Ugh, run!"
But Beverley did not budge. He was
standing erect, with his arms, deeply
creased where the thongs hnd sunk,
folded across bis breast A rush of
thoughts and feelings had taken tumultuous possession of bim, and be
could not move or decide what to do. A
mad desire to escape arose In his heart
tho moment thnt be saw Long Hair
take tbe locket It was as If Alice had
cried to him and bidden him make a
dash for liberty.
"Ugh, mn!"
The order was accompanied with a
push of such violence from Long Hair's
left elbow that Beverley plunged nnd
fell, for his limbs, after their long and
painful confinement in the rawhide
bonds, were stiff and almost useless.
Long Hair in no gentle voice bade him
get up. Tbe shock of falling seemed to
awaken his dormant forces; n sudden
resolve leaped into his brnln. He saw
that the Indians had put aside their
bows nnd guns, most of which were
leaning against the boles of trees here
and yonder. What if be could knock-
Long Hnlr down and run away? This
might possibly be easy, consldeiinc tbe
Indian's broken arm. His heart Jumped at the possibility. But the shrewd
Savage was alert aud saw the thought
come Into his face.
"Try run 'way, kill!"
en stream. There was no rnln falling,
but almost the entire country lay under
a flood of wnter. Fires of logs were
soon burning brightly on the comparatively dry bluff chosen by the Indians.
The weather wns chill, but not cold.
Long Hair took great pains, however,
to dry Beverley's clothes nnd seo that
he bad warm wraps and plenty to cat
Hamilton's large reward would not be
forthcoming should the prisoner die.
Beverley wns good property, well
worth careful attention. To be sure, his
scalp ln the worst event would command n sufficient honorarium, but not
the greatest. Beverley thought of nil
this while the big Indian wns wrapping him snugly ln skins nnd blankets
for the night, nnd there wns no comfort ln lt save that possibly If he were
returned to Hamilton be might see
Alice again before he died.
At about the inidhour of the night
Long Hair gently awoke his prisoner
by drawing n  bnnd  across his  face,
then whispered In his car:
Beverley   tried   to   rise,   utteiinfj  A
sleepy ejaculation under his breath.
"No talk!" hissed Long Hair.  "Still P

Important hit of craftiness was being
performed.  Just what Its nature waa,
however, ho could not surmise.   One
thing was obvious.  Long Hair did not
wish the other Indians to know of the
move   he   was   making.    Deftly   he
slipped the blankets from around Beverley and cut the thonga at bis ankles.
"Still!" he whispered.  "Come 'long."
Under such circumstances a competent mind acts with lightning celerity,

But he did not take his own condition
Iato account
"Ugh, run!"
Again tbe elbow of Long Hair's hurt
arm pushed him toward the expectant
rows of Indians, who flourished their
clubs nnd uttered Impatient grunts.
Beverley made a direct dash for the
narrow lane between the braced nnd
watchful lines. Every warrior lifted
his club. Every copper face gleamed
steadily, a mask behind which burned
a strangely atrocious spirit Tho two
savages standing at the end nearest
Beverley struck at him the Instant be

quite by surprise when be checked himself between them and, leaping this
way nnd that, swung out two powerful
blows, left and right, stretching one of
them flat and sending tbe other reeling
and staggering half a dozen paces
backward with tbe blood streaming
from his nose.
This done, Beverley turned to run
away, but his breath was already short
and his strength rapidly going.
Long Hair, who was' at his heels,
leaped before him when he had gone
but a few steps and once more flourished the tomahawk. To struggle was
useless save to Insist upon being
brained outright, vFhlch Just then had
no part In Beverley's considerations.
Long Hnlr kicked his victim heavily,
uttering Inconic curses meanwhile, and
ted him back again to the stalling
The young man, who hsd borne all
ho could, now turned upon him furiously and struck straight from tbe
shoulder, setting the whole weight of
his body Into the blow. Long Hair
stepped out of tbe way and quick as a
flush brought the flat side of bis tomahawk with great force against Beverley's head. This gave tlKfaninsement a
sudden and disappointing- end, for the
prisoner fell limp and senseless to the
ground. No moro runuln*..the gantlet
for him that day. JnSoed "It required
protracted application of the best Indian skill to revive blm bo that he
could fairly be called a living man.
There bad been no daiigcrous concussion, however, and on the following
morning camp was broken.
Beverley, sore, haggard, forlornly
disheveled, had his arms bound again
aad ww made to march apace with bis
nimble enemies, .who set out swiftly
eastward, their disappointment at having their sport cut short, although bitter enough, not ln the least Indicated
by any facial expression or spiteful net
Was It really a strange thing, or wns
It not, that Beverley's mind now busied
Itself unceasingly with the thought that
Long Hair had Alice's picture ln his
pouch? One might find uoui for discussion of n cerebral problem like this,
but our history cannot be delayed with
analyses and speculations. It must run
its direct course unhindered to the end.
Suffice It to record that while tramping
at Long Hair's side nnd growing moro
and more desirous of seeing the picture
again Beverley began trying to con-
| verse wltb bis taciturn enptor. He hnd
a  considerable  smattering  of  scverul
ready he was .planning or trying to
plan some way by which be could kill
Long Hair when they should reach a
safe distance from the sleeping camp.
But how could the thing be done? A
man witb bis hands tied, Ciougli they
arc ln front of blm, Is in no excellent
condition to cope with a free and stalwart savage armed to tbe teeth. Still
Beverley's spirits rose with every rod
of distance thut was added to their
slow progress.
Tbelr course was nearly parallel wltb
that of the streiim^ but slightly converging with it, and nfter they had
gone about a furlong they reached the
bank. Hero Long Hair stopped nnd,
without n word, cut tho thongs from
Beverley's wrists. This was astounding. The young man could scarcely realize lt, nor was he ready to act.
"Swim water," Long Hnlr said ln a
guttural murmur barely audible.
Again It was necessary for Beverley's mind to act swiftly and with prudence. The camp was yet within balling distance. A false move now would
bring tbe wbolc pack howling to tbe
rescue. Something told bim to do as
Long Hair ordered, so wltb scarcely a
perceptible hesitation ha scrambled
down the bushy bank and slipped Into
tbo water, followed by Long Hair,
who seized blm by one arm when bo
began to swlai and struck out with him
Into the boiling and tumbling current
Beverley bad always thought himself
a master swimmer, but Long Hair
showed blm bis mistake, . It was a
long, cold struggle, and when at last
(hey touched the sloping, low bank on
the other side Long Hnlr had fairly to
lift his chilled and exhausted prisoner
to the top.
"Ugh, cold!" be grunted, beginning to
pound nnd rub Beverley's arms, legs
and body.   "Make warm licapl"
All this ho did with liis right band,
holding the tomahawk In his left
It wns n strange, bewildering expo-
lieacc out of which the young man
could not bco In any direction far
enough to give blm a bint upon which
to act In a few minutes Long Hair
jerked him to his feet and said:
It was Just light enough to see that
the order bad a tomahawk to enforce
It withal. Long Hnlr Indicated the direction nnd drove Beverley onward ts
fast as he could.
"Try run 'way, kill!" he kept repeating, while with bis left hand on the
young mini's shoulder he guided him
from behind dexterously through the
wood for some distance.
They bad just emerged from a thicket into an open space where the ground
wns comparatively dry. Overhead tbe
stars were shining In grent clusters of
silver and gold against a dark, cavernous looking sky, here and thero overrun wltb careering black clouds. Beverley shivered, not so much with cold
as on account of the stress of excitement which amounted to nervous rigor.
Long Hair faced him and leaned toward him until his breathing was audible and his massive features were
dimly outlined. A dragon of the __»rl_-;:
est age could not have been more repulsive. '
"Ugh, friend!"
Beverley started when these words
were followed by a sentence in an Indian dialect somewhat familiar to him",
a dialect in which he had tried to talk '
with   Long   Hair   during   the   day's*
march.   The sentence, literally trans-]
latcH, was:
"Long Hair ls friendly now. WHk,
white man be friendly?"
Beverley heard, but the speech seem-'
ed to come out of vastness and hollow
distance. He could not realize lt fairly.
lie felt as lf In a dream, far off some-l
where in loneliness, with a big, shadowy form looming before him. He
beard the chill wind ln the thickets
roundabout, and beyond Long Hair(
rose a wall of giant trees.
"Ugb, not understand?" the savage
presently demanded in his broken English.
"Yes, sis," said Beverley, "I understand."
"Is tho whito man friendly now?"
Long Hair then repeated In his own'
tongue  with  a  certain Insistence  ofl
manner nnd voice.
"Yes, friendly."
Long Hair fumbled In his ponch and
took out Alice's locket, which he handed to Beverley.   "White man love little
girl?" ho Inquired In a tone that bordered upon Tenderness, again speaking <
In Indian.
Beverley clutched the disk as soon as
he saw lt gleam ln tbe starlight
"White man going to havo little girl
for bis squaw, ch?"
"Yes, yes," cried Beverley without
hearing his own voice. He was trying .
to open the locket, but bis hands were
numb and trembling. When nt last he ',
did open It he could not sec the child
face within, for now oven the starlight
was shut off by n scudding black cloud.
"Lif" elii snvml Lone Hair's life.
Lo_,g Hair save white warrior for llttlaj
A dignity which was almost noble ac-
compaiiied these simple sentences.
Long Hair stood proudly erect like a
colossal statue in tbe dimness.
Tho great truth dawned upon Bever-i
Icy that here was a characteristic act.'
He knew that an Indian rarely failed i
to repay a kindness or an injury, stroke ■
for stroke, when opportunity offered.
"Wait here a little while," Long Halt]
said, nnd, without lingering for reply,
turned away and disappeared ln the
wood.   Beverley wns free to run If he !
wished to, and tbe thought did surge,
across   his   mind,   but  a   restraining
something like a hand laid upon him '
would not let his limbs move.   Down*
deep In his henrt a calm voice seemed t
to be repeating Long Hair's Indian sentence, "Walt here n little while."
A few minutes later Long Hair returned bearing two guns, Beverley's,
and his own, the hitter a superb weapon given blm by Hamilton. He afterward explained tbat be had brought
these, with their bullet pouches and |
powder horns, to a place of concealment near by before he awoke Beverley.
Delay could not be thought of. Long
Hair explained briefly tbat he thought
Beverley must go to Kaskaskia. He*)
had come across the stream ln the direction of Vlncennes ln order to set his
warriors at fault. The stream must
be recrossed, he said, farther down,
and be would help Beverley a certain
distance on his way, then leave blm to
shift for himself. He had a meager '
amount of parched corn and buffalo
meat ln his pouch which would stay
hunger until they could kill some gams.
Now they must go.
They flung miles behind tbem before ,
day dawn, Long Hair leading, Beverley pressing close at his heels. Most of
the way led over flnt prairies covered
with water, and they therefore left no

Late In the forenoon Long Hair killed
a deer at the edge of a wood.   Here
they made a fire and cooked a supply ,
which would last them for a day or
two, and then on tbey went again. But
we cannot follow tbem step by step. ^
When Long Hair at last took leave of (^^
Beverley the occasion had no ceremony.   It was  an abrupt, unemotional
parting.   Tbe stalwart Indian simply
said In bis own dialect, pointing westward:
"Go that way two days. You will And

Kaskaskia. But before he reached Ids '

changed bis story to a considerable flu- ,
groe. It chanced that he came upon
Lieutenant Barlow, who In pursuit of
game had lost his bearings and, far
from bis companions, was beating
around quite bewildered in a watery
solitude. Long Hair promptly murdered the poor fellow and scalped hlin
with as little compunction as ho would
have skinned a rabbit, for be had »

ho purposed to recoup to some extent
the damages sustained by letting Beverley go.
Therefore when ho rejoined his somewhat disheartened and demoralized
band he showed them the scalp and
gave tbem an eloquent account of how
he tore it from Beverley's bead after a
long chase and a bloody band to hand

A Memory Scheme That
Wa.8   Not   a.   Success
THE old gentleman had a calendar
pad ou his library table, and ho
also bus n treacherous memory,
lf there is anything to be done on u
certain dny lie jotn it down on the pad,
nnd If his wife has anything for bim
to do she jots it down on the pad. He
nlwnys consults the calendar the first
thing on reaching home to see if he has
promised to make a call or go to the
club or theater thnt evening, for It Is
annoying to be reminded of such nn
engagement after lie has got his slippers on.
It Is nlso necessary to explain as n
preliminary that bo has established a
system of allowances nnd payments to
bis children for doing cerlain things
end that he [inn been known to borrow
n dime or a quarter froiii one of thein
occasionally for car fare in order to
avoid lotting a conductor load blm up
ivilli nickels.
One evening he found this entry on
his calendar pad: "Tommy, 10 cents."
•'Here, lummy!" Ire culled, 'court
•nil get .vour dime!"
Tbe next evening l:e found on his
pad mining oilier entries, "Tommy, 20
COfllS," nnd he paid It.
A littlo later his wife remarked casually: 'Tommy's gelling to lie tlio capitalist or the family, ili.s bank is almost full."
A suspicion crept Into the mind of
the forgetful man. nnd he hastily repaired to the library.
"I've got to devise some new memory scheme," he said sadly when he
filially enicrged. "This one is altogether too cosily."
Itcfereuce to the turned over slips
on the pad showed that he had paid
Tommy from a nickel to n quai'ter every day for over two weeks.—Brooklyn

Rollo Ogden, In his fciography of William II. Prescott, the historian, tltes
many passages from the diary showing
Prcscott's habit of Dogging himself to
bis work by making wagers with his
secretaries thnt bo would complete a
given task by n certain day, the odds
always heavily against himself.
'Trescott always took this betting on
his own industry with perfect seriousness. Sometimes be would radiantly
greet bis secretary with: 'Yeu have lost!
You owe mo a dollar.' And he would
exact payment. Occasionally he would,
with woebegone countenance, produce
and pny over to the protesting secretary the $20 or $'.0 ho himself had
lost." One elaborately mude memorandum witnesses thnt a bet of $1 to $30
hnd been made "between E. B. Otis
and William II. Prescott, Esq., the latter betting $50 that be will write 100
pages of bis 'FHstory of Pern! In 100
days." The document is signed William H. Prescott and Edmund B. Otis,
but tho hitter subjoins the following:
"I promise on my honor as a gentleman not to release Mr. Trescott from
any forfeiture that may Incur, except
ln such cases ns aro provided for in

at his desire for his own accommodation only."

Then they explained to hlin that the

"She stood In the tender twilight
While the soft wind whispered by,
Homeless, friendless'and weary,
Under the evening sky.
The scent of violets was wafted
From the grassy turf at her feet,
And the promise of coming Summer
Made all things wondrous sweet.
But alone she stood ln the twilight,
With the dew on her roughened hair,
And her soft eyes dimmed by unshed
With never a friend to care.
And never a roof to shelter her
Or a kindly word Ib said,
As from door to door she moves along,
Begging her dally bread.
Oh,  think of    her    In    your   cheerful
When the twilight shadows come,
And you gather round your bounteous
In the safe and happy home.
Give her a kind and gentle word—
You can surely spare her that;
She may come to your door at any time,
The homelesB, deserted cat."

There's never a day so sunny,
But a little cloud appears;
There's never a life so happy
But has Its time of tears.
Yet the Bun shines out the blighter
When the stormy tempest clears.
There's never a garden growing
With roseB ln every plot;
There'B never a heart ao hardened
But lt has one tender spot.
We have only to prune the bqrders
To find the forget-me-not.
There's never a cup so pleasant,
But has bitter with Its sweet;
There's never a path so rugged
That bears not the print of feet.
And we have a helper promised
For the trials we may meet.
There's never a Run that rises,
But we know lt will set at night;
The tints that gleam ln the morning
At evening are Just as bright;
And the hour that Is the sweetest
Ib between the dark and light.
There's never a dream so happy
But the waking makes us sad;
There's never a dream of sorrow
But the waking makes ua glad;
We shall look some day with wonder
At the troubles we have had.
