HA Oftice at Terminus Electric Line A Daughter susis "By GEN. CHARLrES, KINO. CHAPTER Xn. I • What action had bcfn resolved upoit, and prompt action, was now I apparent. Stabbfr, fij^liting chief i thoiigrh he had been in the past, had ' , had his reason for opposing the plans this new and voncment jcauer; bat-public sentiment, stirred by vehement oratory, had overruled him, and he had bolted the field convention in a furj'. Laihe AVplf, a younger chief than Stabber, had yet more power among-the Og'allalas, being Red I Cloud's favorite nepnew, and among ! the Indians, at least, his iicihowl- edged representative. Whenever called to account, however, for that nephew's deeds, the wary old statcs- inan promptly disavowed tliem. It ?vas in search of LatnejWolf, reasoned j Kjjy, that Stabber had spe<l away, possibly' hoping to induce'him to call off his followers. It jirobably came sWcliepJng flown the lon^ sibpe, straight f<jr the point where sat Red Fo.x, as for want of other name, we must for' the present call him—who, for his part, shading his eyes with his hand, sat gazing toward the westward side «>f his warrior circle, evidently awaiting some demonstration there before giving signal for action elsewhere. Obedient to hislfirst instructions, the niain body had spread out in long, irregular skirmish rank, their mettlesome jionies capering and dancing in their eagerness. Chanting in chorus some shrill, weird song, the line was how slowly, steadily advancing, still too far awaj- to warrant- the wasting of a shot, 'yet unmistakably seeking to close as much as possible before bursting in with the final charge. And still the red leader sat at gaze, oDHMous lor tne moment or everything around him, ignoring the coming of orders possibly from Lame flie deeper strategy of Stabber to oi>- ! ;volf himself. Sud<lenly the silver pose no obstacle to Ray 's advance un- j armlets once more gleamed on high, till the little troop ^vas In-vond tlie Tooth ridge, where, "n utterly shelterless grtiund. the In((ian would have every advantage. He knew Ray of old; knew well that, left to himself, the captain would push on in the effort to rescue the stage people, and- he and his command npght |>rac- tically be at the mercy of the .Sioux, j If only the Sioux would listen and be i patient. Stabber knew liiat to attack ] the troopers now entrenching at the j Cottonwood^ meant a desperate figlit in Avhich thC; Indians, even if ultimately triumphant, must lose niiny a valued brave, and that is not the •thoroughbred Indian'^ view of good generalship. Stablicr was old, wily and wise. The new cliief. whoever be might be, seemed' possessed of a mad lust for instant battle, eoupitrd with a possible fear that, iinh'ss the golden momenjt. were seized, Kay might be reiBiCi*ced.' and could then defy them all. Indeed there were vet- eiran campaigners among the tronp- eirs who noted how often tlie tall red : chief pointed in sweeping gesture back to Moccasin i Ricige—troopers who, even at the distance caught and ihterpreted a few of his words. "That's it, sir," said Winsor, confidently to Ray. "He says 'more :soldiers coming,' and—I believe he knows." f \ At all events lie had so, convinced bis fellows, and, even bef <»re Stabber ireached the middle t <)othi—where sat A little knot of mounted Indians, signaling, ,apparentl3-, to others still iiome distance tp tlie north—with a ichorus of exultant I yells, the long, j^udy, glittering line of braves suddenly scattered, and; lashing away to right and,left, dozens of ihem darted jst top spcea to join > tiiose already jiisposediJibout that] big circle, while others still, the maih body, probably 70 strong, after some barbaric show of circus evolutions <abou^ their lead- ier, once more r^ned up for final In­ unctions from W b l|p8. Then, with a piagpificent gesture j of ,iho 5hand, he waTCd them on, and^ jaccompanied by only two young riders, rode swiftly away to a little swell of the prairie just out of range of ,the carbines, and there took his station to super. yise the attack.

Red Fox gave voice to a ringing war whopp, fierce, savage and exultant, and, aliuost at the instant. like the booin a:nd rumble that follows some vivid lightning flash, the prairie ^yoke and trembled to the tliunder of near a thousand hoofs. From every i><)int of the com- j)ass—from every s.ide, yelling like fiends of some orthodox hell, down they came—the wiW warriors of the frontier in furious push upon the silent and almost peaceful covert of this little band of "brothers in the dusty garb of blue. One, two, three hundred yards they came, centering on the leafy clump at eotioiiwoods, riding at a tearing gallop, erect, de- fiantj daring at the start, and-giving full voice to their wildwar cry. Then bending fonvard, crouching low, then flattening out like hunted squirrel, for ais the foremost in the dash came thundering on within good carbine range, all on a sudden the watch dogs of the little plains fort began to bark. .Has Put In a Stock of...

Then the entire grove seemed veiling itself in a drifting film of blue, thd whole charging, circle to crown itself with a dun cloud of dust that swept eastward over the prairie, driven by the stiff, unhaBapercd breeze. The welkin rang with savage yell, with pnWering cheer, with 11^ sputter and crackle of rifle and revolver, the loud bellow of Springfield, and then, still -yelping, -the feathered riders veered- and circled, ever at magnificent speed, [•each man for himself, apparently, yet all guided and controlled by some unseen, yet acknowledged, power; and, in five minutes, save where some hapless pony lay quivering and kicking on the turf, the low ground close at hand was swept clean of horse or man. The|wld attack had been made in vain. The Sioux were scampering back, convinced, but not discomfi.ted. Some few of their number, borne away stunned and bleeding, by comrade hand from underneath their stricken chargers—some three or four, perhaps, who had dared too much—were closing their eyes on the last fight of their savage lives. To Ray and to many of his men it was all an old story. Stabber would never have counseled or permitted attack on seasoned troopers, fighting behind even improvised shelter. ^Something, perhaps, had occurred to "blind his younger rival to the peril of such assault, and now, as three or four little parties were seen slowly drifting away toward the ridge, burdened by some helpless, form, other couriers came thimdering down at Red Fo.x, and wild e.vcitement' prevailed among the Elk Teeth. More signals were flashing. Iklorc Indians came popping Into view, theii feathered 'bonnets streaming in the rising wind, and about the prairie wave, where the savage general had established field headquarters, a furious conference was going on. Stabber had again interposed, and -with grim but hopeful eyes, Ray and his fellows watched and noted. Every lull In the fight was so much gain fot them. •Twelve fiftj-fwo," said the darkened commander, swinging his watch into the pocket of his hunting shirt, and sliding backward into the stream bed. ''All sei-ene So far. Watch things on this front. Field, while 1 make the rounds and see how we came out." '"All serene so far" it was! Not a man hurt. Two of the sorrels had been hit by filing bullets and much amazed and stung thereat, bui neither was crippled. Ridding their guards to dig for water that might soon be needed, Ray once more made his way to the northward siide and rejoined Field and Wins«>r. In an almost cloudless sky of steely blue the sun had just passed the meridian and was streaming hotly doAvn on the stirring picture. Northward the ridge line and the long, gradual slope seemed alive with s%varms of Indian warriors, many of them darting about in wllil commotion. About the little eminence where Stabber and th^ Fox had again locked h«)rns in. violent altercation, as many as a him- dred braves had gathered. About the middle knob, fro^ whose summit mirror fiashiw shot from time t<i time, was still another concourse, listening, apjiarently, to the admonitions of a leader but recently arrived, o chieftain mounted on an American horse, almost black, and Ray studied the pair long and curiously through his glasses. "L.nme Wolf, probably," said he, but. the distance vias too great to enable him to be certain. What puzzled him more than anything was the ap[>arent division of authority, the unusual display of discord among the Sioux. These were -all, doubtless, of the Ogalalla tribe. Red Cloud's own people, ye^ here they \yere wrangling like ward "heelers" and ^vasting. precious time.' Whatever his antecedents, this new comer had been a powerful sower of strife and sedition, for, instead of JoUowing implicitly the counsels of one leader, the Indians were divided now between three. True tp its .practice, the prairie wind was -Bweeping «tr<mger and, A^nger with.every aooment, aa.ihe Mnmarmed strata over tibe Wide»:.bU^: lowi^g^f^ucface sought l ^her .-Iefyelf, anditibte denser, cooler wrx^i irc^. ^the frest .cajne riudiing-dpvm.: ;-Aaid now -.all r-aounds .of :.iAe\ d <^te w ^r^ old Soiitn.

But, while the discussioii seemed endless among the Indians on the northward - side, never for a moment was tlie \igilance of the circle relaxed. South, east anA west the slopes and lowlands were dotted with restless Lorsemeh, and from young:] Clayton tfame the -word-that through his glass he could make out three or j four warriors far avvay toward the Moccasin ridge, ^^hat's good," said! Ray. "It means that they, too, are^ •looking for a column coming out from Frayiie. But where on earth did all these rascals come from? There must be 400 now in sight." • Well might he aisk and marvel! Stabber's little village had. never more than 50 warriors. Lame Wolf's band.was counted at less than 240 fighting men, and these, so said the agents of the omniscient bureau* wQxe all the Ogallalas away from the shijlter of the reservation when the trouble started. No more should be allowed to go, was the confident premise, yet a fortnight nearly had elapsed since the frontier fun began. News of battle sweeps with marvelous speed through Indian haunted lands, and here were warriors by the score, come to strengthen the hands of kindrdd in the field, and, more were coming. The mirror signals plainly told them thai. Yet it was well nigh one o'clock and not another hostile move was made. Pox then was being held by stronger hajads. It meant that" Lame Wolf had listened to" reason—and. Stabber, and would permit no fresh attack until his numbers should be so in- t-reased that resistance would practically be vain. It meant even more— that the Indian leader in chief command felt sure no force was yet within helping distance of the cbr- raled troopers. He could, therefore, take his time. (To Be Continued.)
