The noonday- sim was staring hotly down, an hour later, on a stirring picture of frontier warfbre, with that clump of cottonwbcds as the central feature. Well for Ray's half hun- now seemed to know --by-iuatiaot- every scheme of his savage foe and to act acccrdingly. Ever since the command had come in sight of the Elk Tooth the conviction' liad been griming on Ka^- that Stablicr must have received many accessions and was counting on thi' sj)eo<!y cf>niing of others. The si;;tial smokes across the wide valley; tjie frequent issays to tempt his advance guard I o charjge and chase; the boldness with wl!i,!<*li the Indians showed oa front ftiid llarik; the daring pertinafify with which tliey ilung t<* the stream Ued for the sake of a few shots at the foremost troopers, relying, evidently, on the array of their comrades beyond the ridge to overwhehu afiy force that gave cl'>se pursuit; t^ie fact that other Indians opened on the advance giiard and the left flankers, and! that a dozen, at least, tore ^ard .'^h'pi'. Ten men in line, far extended, wi -re sent right forward half way across the tlats, ordered to drive the Indians fr<im the bottom and cripple as many as possible; but, if irtfuacfd by superior nimibers, to fall bark at the gallop, keeping well away from the front of the grove, i .o thill the tire of its garri.son might not be "m.'iskcd."

I To dart chase of the three warriors would simply result in the Bcattering of his own people and thei^ being individually cut] off and stricken down by circling sWarms of their red foes.

Two little " groups slowly making their way to the crest gave no little comfort to the boys in blue, gome, at least, of the charging force had been made to feel the bite of the cavalry ^weapon and were being borne to the rear. But no time was to be wasted. Already from far up the stream bed two or three Indians were hazarding long-range shots at the grove, and Ray ordered all horses into a bend of the "wash." where the side lines were whipped from the blanket straps and the excited sorrels securely hoppled. Then, here, there and in a score of places along the bank and again at the edge of the cottonwoods, men had been assigned their stations and bidden to find cover for themselves without delayJ Malny burrowed in the soft and yielding soil, throwing the earth forward in front of them.
