's easy to make out Stabber,' iresehtlj spoke. "One can almost that foghorn voice.of his. But the I mischief is that j|ed vilhuh*^ h 'opjposing him? , I've .seen fevery on^ iof.itheir chiefs in the last :lve years. 'All are men of 40 or more. This fel- Joyr can't be a big chief. Hd looks ilomET .yeaijs vounger than mdst o£ 'em, olct Xiame won, zpr instance, yet ne -s clleekingi Stabber as if he owned, the whole oiitfit."^ Another long stare, tl^en again:" "Who the mischief can he-be?" \ iS 'o fins\ycr at his side, and Bay,' with the Jensfts still at his li ^yes .took no note for the moment ihat Field remained so silent. Out at the fronfc 1h«r excitement increased.' - Out through the velllBt—surging.. war- riprs, the loud -voiced, " Impetuous brave twice burst his wiijf,' and^ Feemcd at one and the same time, in his su|)erb poise and gesturings, to be urging the entire body tji join, him in in .stant assault on the troops, and hurling taunt . and anathema on the besieged. WhoeTQr-1 he was, he was in b veritable fury*f As many as half of the Indian's Be 'eraed utterly carried away by hie fiery words, and with much shouting and gesticulation and brandishing of gun and lance, were yelling apprt)- bation of his views and urging Stab-- ber 's people to join tliem. More fu -^i rious language followed and much- dashing about of excited ponies. i*^Have you ever 'seen that fellow before," dehianded Uay, of brown-eyed Sergt. Winsor,. who had s ]jent a lifetime on the plains,' but. Winsor was plainly puzzled. "I can't say for the life of me, sir," was the answer. "I don't know him at all—and yet—" "Whoever he is, jby Jove," said Kay, "he's a bigger man this day than Stabber, for he 's ^winning the fight. Now, if he cmly leads the jdash as he does the debate, we can jpick him off. Who are our best shotis/on this. front?" and eagerly he scalihed the few faces near him. "Webber 's tiptop and g <x)d for anything under 300 yards when he isn 't excited, and Stoltz, he 's a i keen, c«»al. one.--'Nel-' -not you, Ilogan," laughed the commander, a[s a freckled faced veteran popiied his head up over a nearby parapet of sand, and grinned his desire to be included. "I've never seen the time you could hit what you aimed at. Slip out of that hole and find Webber and tell him to come here —and you take his burrow." Whereupon Hogan, grinning rueful acquiescence in his commander 's criticism, slid backwards into the stream lied and, followed by the chaiY of the three or four comrades near enough to catch the words, went crouching "from post to post in search of the desired marksman. ' "You used t<i 1M* pretty sure with the cdrbine in the Tonto Basin when •we wiere after Apaches, scrgeantj"* continued Hay, again peering through the glasses. "I'm mistaken in this •fellow if he doesn't ride well within rangej and we must make an exam- iple of him. I want four first-class 'shots to single him out." "The lieutenant'can beat tlie best I ever did,, sir," said Winsor, with a lift of the hand toward the hat brim, las though in ajjology, for Field, silent tljroughiDUt'the brief conference, had half risen on His hands and knees and was edging over to the left, ap- 'X>arently seeking to reach the shelter of & little hummock close to the bank. "Why, surely. Field," was the quick reply, as Kay turned toward his junior. "That Avill make it complete." Hut a frantic burst of yells and war whoops out at the front put sudden •stop to the words. ' The tlirong of warriors that had pressed so close about Stabber ^nd; de opposing orator seemed all in" ^Instant to split asunder, and with trailing war bonnet and followed Tiy only two or three of his braves, the former lashed, his way westward and swept angrily out of the ruck and went ctrcii^ 4way toward the crest, while, ^^Stth loud acclamation, t>randishing shield and lance and rifle in superb barbaric tableau, the warriors lined up in front of the victorioas young leader who, sitting high in Ids stirrups, iiHt^ one magnificent red airm uplifted, began shouting in the sonorous tongue of the Sioux some urgent instructions. Down from the distant ci*est came other braves as'though to meet and ask Stabber explanation of bis strange quitting the field; Down came a dozen others, young braves mad for battle, eager to join the ranks of this new leader, and Bay, who had turned on Field once more,.fixed his gla -Hscs on that stalwart, nearly stark naked brilliantly painted form, foremost of the Indian array and now at last in full and unimpeded •view. "By the gods of war!" he cried. "I never saw that scoundrel before, but if it isn't that renegade Bed Fox—Why, here Field J Take my glass and look. You were wnth the commis- ,6ioner's escort last year at the Black Hills council. You must have . fiei;n him and l^eard hip sj ^ak, Isn't this Red Poix himself I?" ! • And to. Kay's surprise the young officer 's eyes were averted, his face pale and troubled, and the answer was a mere mumble—"I didn't meet Fox—there, captain." Ho never seemed to see the glass held out. to him until K&y almost thrust it into his_hand and then persisted Avith his inquiry. ' "Look at him anj'how. You may have seen him somewhere. Isn't that Red Fox?" And now Kay was gazing rtralght at Field's half hidden face. Field, the soul of frankness- hitherto, the lad who was never known to flinch from tlie eyes of any man, but to answer such challenge with his o'wn—brave, fearless, sometimes even defiant. Now he kept the big binocular fixed on the distant hostile array, but his face was white, Ws hand unsteady and his nn.- swer, when it came, was in a voice that Ray heard in mingled pain and wonderment. Could it be that the Jad was unnerved by the sight? In iny event, he seemed utterly unlike himself. "I cannot say. .<;ir. It was dark— nr niglit at all events—th^ only time I ever heard him."! (To Be (Continued.) The Base Ball Hospital. News from the base ball hospital :o(lay is gratifying. Milsap, who was hurt by a heavy fall yesterday, is improving. He fell on his shoulder when sliding to third and had to quit the game soon after as he grew dizzy. He lay on the ground and became delirious. A cab was called and he was brought, up town and it was late last night before his mind cleared. It was fearofl he was hurt 'internally, but this morning he was reported resting eas ily and getting along all right. There isn't a better all-round ball player in the, Missouri Valley League than Arthur Milsap, fielding, hitting,* base running, pitching, catching or wrang ling. Henley, who has been out of the game with cramps for a week, is slowly improving. KlUilay's pitching arm, hit in a Leavenworth game, is still sore and will kee^ him on the bench for some: days Hetling, the new third-baseman sneaked off to St. Louis ^fter drawing 515 to "send to his mother." Nobody cares much whether the ball that hit him is still in his head or-not. Kid Forney, a pitcher of unquestioned ability, was reported to be due here last night. With lola's team back of him this ye'ar he ought to win nearly every gaipe. True andiUnfailing Health for Suf- Women. mm COMPOUND The'World»s Medicine for the Troubles., Cure of Female A large share of the evils andlstif- ferings which women are liable to, result-from special fe&ale • weaknesses and diseases. From the girl entering womanhood to the woman who arrives at the Grandi Cllmdcteric or ."Change of Life.'f there are troubles, ailments and irrdgu^ities—too often borne in silence—^which undermine the health and result in disease. -> Where such conditions exist,' Heaven help the poor sufferers to fully reidize their perils ahd^ dangers! It is w^ir known that ordinary medical treatment too oft^nj jl^i^f to bnHd up the;delicate nervous system of women, and give necessary tone an4 ^rength to the important female organs. The experience of years, medical testimony and letters from tens of thousands of cured women, point, to IPaine's Celery Compound as woman's friend and life giver, Mrs. W. I. West, Fremont, Neb.-, writes thus: ; "I used Paine's Celery Compound tor female (roubles and general debility. I have taken a great deal of medir cine during the. last ten years,-bat none of them of such value as Paine's Celery CQifipound. I believe it Is the best medicine for the nerves~&nd tbo trouble^ which womeii suffer so' much, that I ever used." i • * Pitcher DaTis^^ofiOsAwatomie, Kansas, made good'in'Tola yesterday.'

He said Nothing of it to anyone, but sneaked, j A bobble gave Pittsburg her first nidi and'the team made but. one clean safe hit Nine Coal Diggers struck oat lola should have won the gaime, biit our two trrors were cos'tly, an'd we had a man on third ^three times, once when nobody was out, and couldn't score. Both of lola's errors were very expensive. The second game vraa a horrible affair. Soon after it began there was a row in the crowd and a delay was caused. Milsap, after hitting a clean three-bagger, fell over third baSe and h'urt his shoulder very seriously. He gamely tried to play on but grew dizzy and later was out of his head. Kenley, a sick lad going on a caqe, went to second. Shaumyer to first and Morgan to- right A worse bungled up team cannot be imagined. And Relf- han and McLear and others of the gentlemanly visitors grew very witty over the mishaps. They guyed Davis who was wild during the second game and were very cocky when Pittsburg^ took the lead. But Mr. Davis beat them just the same, with good hitting behind him. A bluer crowd never sat in a grand stand than that of yesterday when, one game lost, the team crippled and the second game was seen going. lola rallied in the seVenth and won the game after all. The score was: Pittsburg ....0 03 003000—G 8 lola .3 10000 14 *—9 11 Reed, who won his game luckily the first day, pitched for Pittsburg. Davis was wild, giving five bases on balls but he fanned eight or nine men again and witli good support would have shut the visitors out. Armstrong, Shaumyer, Scroggin and Milsap got three baggers arid Davis two two-bag gers. The game was won, lost and re won and the crowd felt much better. But—we should haVe won both.
