Sorely ])iizzlc(l as Clakc had been by the discovery, he, hnd been able on the long homeward' march— walking until in sight of, Fraj-ne • and Bafctj-, then galloping ahead on the corporal's horse—to think it out, as he said, in several ways. ^Miss Flower had frequently ridden up the \*elley atid visited the Indian village across the Platte. Miss Flower taight easily have dropped that note, and some squaw, picking it up, had surrendered it to the first red man who demanded it, such being the domestic discipline of the savage. The Indian kepi it, as he would any other treasure trove for which he had no nse, in hopes of reward for Its return, said Blake. It was queer, of course, that the Indian in whose pouch it was found should have been SO; fluent a speaker of English, yet many a Sioux knew enough of our tongue to swear volubly and talk ten words of vengeance to come. There were several ways, as I'.lake reasoned, 1)3' which that letter might have got into the hands of the enemy. J!ut at luiy rule, witli evcry- '^ling said, it was a woman's letter. Hehad no light to read it. He would first confide in his wife, and, if she said BO, in Mrs. Ilay. Then what they decided should decide him. But now eaine a new problem. Dc- spijtc the long lyorning of peril and chase and txeitenient, tliere was still much more ahead. His men were in saddle;! his trooji wa« afield; the foe was in force on the road, to the north; the battle, mH3-ha]), was on at the very moment, and I'rayne aud < home was no place for him when duty jcalled at the distant fr<jnt. Only, there was Nan, silent, tremulous, to be sure, and with such a world of piteous dread and pleading in her beautiful; eyes. It Avas hard to havq to tell her he must go again and atjonee, hard to have to bid her help hiln in his hurried preparations, . when.she.longed to'throw herself in his ^irms and be comforted. He 1 rjed Coprrislu, laa, Tbe Babui Comiwar. to smile as lie entered the gate, and thereby cracked the brittle, sun- dried .court plaster with which a mr* gcant had patched his check at the stables. Tlie would-be gladsome grin started the blood again, and it trickled down and splashed on hia breast where jioor Nan longed to pillow her bonny head, and the sight of it, despite her years of froriticr training, made her sick and faint. He caught her in liis left arm, laughing gayly, and drew her to the other side, "(lot the mate to that scoop of Billy's," he cried, holding forth his other hand to Mrs. Hay. " 'Tisn't so deep, perhaps, but 'twill eerve, 'twill do, and I'll crow over him to-night. Come in with us, Mrs. Ray. I—^I'vc something to show Volumes, at times, of womanfs happiness or misery. The duU^ sunken e3re, with its dark circles almost surely speaks of womanly ill-health, and its attendant suffering. With the dull eye goes usually the sallow, sunken cheek, the drawn mouth, the shnmken form—the M 'hole glory of woman's beauty tnarred by ihe effects of disease. , . Dr. Pierce's Favorite Preiscription cures the disesses which nndennine the health «ud mar the beauty of women. It estab- I regularity, dries weakening drains, infiammatioil and ulceration, and {teals cures female weakness.

"One minute," said that \\isc yoifhg matron. "Let me tell the children where to find me. Sandy and Billy are on post at the tclescoiie. They wouldn't leave it even for luncheon." With that she vanished, and husband and wife were alone. "You must go, Gerald," she sobbed —"I know it, but—isn't there some way?—Won't Capt. Dade send more men with j-ou?'' "If he did, Nan, tlicy'd only hamper me with horses that drag behind. Be brave, little woman. Webb has swept the way clear by this time. Come, I need your help." And the door closed on the soldier and his young wife. Tlicy never saw that Nanette Fhiwer, in saddle, was riding swiftly up the row, and, for the first time since her coming to Frayne, without an escort. Dade rc- appbared upon his fr<mt gallery in time to greet her, but ICsthcr, after one ffhick glance, ,had darted again within. Dade saw unerringly that Miss Flower was in no placid frame of mind. Her cheeks were pale; her month had that livid lo<»k that robbed her face of all beauty; but her eyes were full and flashing with excite- tiicnt. "What news, captain?" she hiailcd, and the joyous, silvery- ring hadigdne from her voiee. "They tell me Capt;i Blake is back—two h<irses crippled, two men hit, including himself." > "His own sliare is a scratch he wouldn't think of mentioning outside the family, Miss Flowei-," answered Dad<i with' grim civility, lie had his reasons for disapproving of the' young woman; yet they were not such- as Warranted him in showing her the least discourtesy. He walkjed to his gate and met her'at the curb beyond and stood stroking the arching neck of her spirited horse— "Harney" again. ! "Did they—were there any'jlndians —killed?" she asked, with anxiety scarcely veiled. 'Oh, they downed one of them," answered the captain, eyeing her closelj' the while and speaking with much precision, "a fellow, who cursed them freely in fluent English." Yes, she was surely turning paler. "A l>old, bad customer, from all accounts. Blake thought he must be of Lame Wolf's fellows, because beseemed to know Kennedy so weM and to hate him. Kennedy Ims only just come down from Fort Beecher, where Wolf's people have been at mischief." "But what became of him? What did they do with him?" interrupted the girl, her lips quivering in spite of herself. "Oh—left him, I suppose," i answered the veteran, \vith deliberate design. • "What else coiild they; do? There was no time for •cereiuony. His fellow savages, you know, can attend to that." For a moment she sat there rigid, her black e3es staring straight into the Imperturbable face: of the old soldier. No one had ever accused Dade of cruelty or unkindness "to man or woman,; espedallj; ^to'wo^ua;' y€t ntre ne stboa oerore cnis suner- ing gtrland, with dbvions intent, pictured to'.her jmind's eye a warrior stricken and left unburied or tinc^nred fo^ on the fieU. AVhatever Jiia rai- Bons; ho sta1}bcd-and'meant to stial}, and for just one moment she seemed almpst to drbop and reel in saddle; then, with splendid rally, straightened up again, her eyes flashing, her lip curling in scorn, and with one briefs emphatic phrase ended ^the. interview and, whirling Harney'about, smote himi sharply with her iwbip, and dqrtcd' away: "True!" she said, fare!" . N "If that girl isn't more thai) half savage;'* said Dade, to himself, as Harney tore awiy out of the garrison on the road to the ford, "1 am more than half Sioux. .Oh, for news of Bay!" Kay indeed! It was novrri-.nej^rly four o'clock. Telegrams had/oeen coming and going over the Laramie wire. "The Chief," as they called their general, with only one of his- staff, in attendance, had reached Cheyenne on time, and, quitting the train, declining dinner at the hotel and having but a word or two with' the "Platform Clnb"-^the little bevy of officers from Fort Russell whose custom it was' to see the westbound train through almost every day—had started straightway for Laramie behind the swiftest team owned by thei quartermaster's department, whijle another, in relay, awaited him at the Chugwater, nearly ,50 miles out. Driving steadily through the starlit night, he should reach the old frontier fort by dawn at the latest, and what news would Dade have to send him there? Not a word had he uttered to either the oflTicers who respectfully greeted, or reporters who eagerly importuned, him as to the situation at Frayne; but men who had served with him in Arizona-and on the Yellowstone many a j'ear before, knew well that 'grave tidings had reached 1dm. Dade had in fact, supplemented Webb's parting, dispatch witJi another, saying that Blake's^ little psirty, returning, had just been sighted through the tele- Bcope nine miles out, with two men afoot. But not until the general reached Lodge Pole creek did the message meet him, saying that Webb's adviuice guard could hear the distant attack on Kay. Not until he reached the Chug\vater in the early night could he hope to hear the result. It \Vas ni^itfall when the awful suspense of the garrison, at Fraj-ne was even measurably lifted.. Blake, with three troopers at his back, had then been gone an hour, and was lost in the gloaming before Dr. Tracy% orderly, with a face that plainly, told the nervous tension of his two hours' ride, left his reeking, heaving horse at the stables and climbed the steep path to tlie flag-staff, the shortest way to the quarters of the commanding officer. De'spite the gathering darkness, he had been seen by a dozen eager watchers and was" deluged with questions by trembling, tearful women and by grrfve, anxious men "There's been a fight; that's all I know," he said. "I was with the pack mules and the ambulances and didn't get to see it. All I saw was dead ponies way out, beyond Ten Mile ridge. Where's .the major?—I mean the captain?" No! the orderly acdh't^ Scnoilir who waa^'. jldllled ' 'dr' wotmded. or that aajbodyiwaa-Idlled: and wounded. All he-knew was l^at Dr. Tracy came galloping back an^ ordered; the spop^for the'front and .Inm to spur eyeiybit of 'the way'back to Frayne witB thet note for Capt. Dade. All this was told as he eagerlyi pushed his way along the board walk; soldiers' wives hanging .on his^ words and almost on hiin; "olHcers' wives and daughters calling from the galleries or running to the_ gates, and Dade heard the hubbub almost "CivUi^^.t viawC-l"^ *s Esther, who hurried ww^ j^^j. 2y light of the hall lanjp the commander read the pen- cilejd superscription of the^gnmmed envjolope and the word "Immediate" at ithe comer. The same light fell Dn ia dozen anxious, pleading faces beyond the steps. His ' hand shook in spite of himself, and he knew he could not open and read it in .their presence. "One moment^" h&.said, his heart going out to them in sympathy as well as dread. "You shall hear "in one moment," and turned aside into the little armj' parlor. But he could not 'turn from his wfe and child. They followed and st^ood studying his pale face as he read the fateful words that told so little, yet so much:— j , "Reached Ray Just In time. Sharp affair. Dr. Waller will have to come at once as Tracy noes on with us to rescue Jtage people at Dry Fork. Better send Infantry escort and all hospital attendants that can bo' possibly spared; also :haplaln. Sergeants Burroughs and Wing, Corporal Foot and Troopers Denny, Flood, Kerrigan, and Preusser killed. Many wounded—Lieut. Field seriously. "WEBB.'« - We Want to Figure That PLUMBING JOB For You.

CHiVPTEB X, A sharp affair indeed- was that of this September day!— a fight long talked of on the froriticr if soon forgotten in "the states." Obedient to bis orders to push to the relief of the imperiled party on Dry Fork, Eay had made good time to Moccasin Uidgc, even though saving horses and men for the test of the later hours. iVVell he Icnew his march would be watched by some of Slabber's band, but little did he dream at starting that Indian strategy would take the anusual form of dropping what promised to be ai sure thing, leaving the people at the stage station to the guardianship of less than a dozen braves, and launching out with a big band to aid a little one in attack on one lone detachment that might not some at all. But Lame Wolf reasoned that the people penned at the stage station were in no condition to attempt to escape. They were safe vvhenever he chose to return to them, and Lame Wolf knew this of Stabber —that ho had long been a hanger- on about the military reservations, that he had made a study of the methods of the white chiefs, that he was able to almost accurately predict what their course would be in such event as this, and that Stabber had recently received accessions whose boast it was that they had information at first hand of the white chiefs' plans and , intentions. Stabber had sent swift runners to Lame Wolf, urging him to bring his warriors to aid him in surrounding the , first I roops sent forth from Frayne. Stabber had noted, year after year, that it was the almost invariable policy Df our leaders to order a sniall force at the start, and then, when that ivas crushed, to follow it with the big Due that should have been sent in the lirst place! Kennedy 's successful ;oming was known to Stabber quite IS soon as It was to Webb. It may DC said that Stabber let him through, feeling confident What the result would be, and then, despite a certain jealousy, not confined entirely to savage tribal leaders. Lame Wolf had confidence In Stabbers' judgment. Ray had expected long range f|ank lire, and possibly occasional resistance in front; but, assured of Stabber'.s paucity in numbers, and believing Lame Wolf too busy to send Stabber substantial aid, he thought a sharp lesson or two would clear his front of such ; Indians as sought to iheck him, and so rode serenely forward, rejoicing in his mission and in his game and devoted little command. "Something beyond that second ridgc," lie had said to Field, in sending him forward with the bulk of the platoon, and Field, who had been silent and brooding, woke at the summons and^ all animation at the scent of danger, spurred | swftly ahead to join the i^dvance and see for himself what mariner of hindrance awaited them, lea\ing the baker's dozen of his platoon to trot steadily on under,the lead of its sergeant, whUe Ray, with bia trumpeter, followed midway between his advance and Clayton 's phitoon, intact, moving qiiictly at the walk and held in reserve. Ordinarily Eay himself would have ridden to the far front'and personally investigated the conditions, but he was' anxious that Ficild should understand he held the full confidence of -his temporary commander. He wished Field to rjeaUze that no \y he had opportunity for honorable distinction, and a chance to show what was in him, and, having sent him forward,-Ray meant to rely on his reports and be ready to babk, if possible, his dispositions. Nothing so quickly demolishes prejudice in gailj- rlson as prqwess in the field. Noi infrequently has an ofiicer gone forth imder a cloud and retumisd under a crown. It is so much easier to be a hero [in ji single fight than a model soldier throughout aa entire season— at least ito it .was in the old days. (To be Continued.)
