"Loolc out for this man. corporal!" he cnlled, to a shiiufinif young' trooper*. "See that no harm conips to him." Tf'hen qiiickly he ran on to tlie huddle of tr.ivois. Something assured him S|he fcould not be far away. The stout draff litter held another young uar- raor, sullen ahd Kjieeehlc^s like the foremost. The next bore a desper- sitely wounded brave whose Idoodless lips were compressed in agony and dumb as those of the dead. About these cowered, shivering, and whimpering, two or three terror-strieken squaws. One «)f them with a round-" eyed papoose staring at her back. A pony lay struggling in the snow close by. Half si dozen rough soldier liands were dragging a stricken rider from underneath. Half .-i dozen more were striving to control the wWd plungings of another mettles<)me beast, whose rider, sitling firjnly astride. lashed first at his quivering flank and then at the fur gauntleted bands—even at the laughing, bearded faees—sure sign <jf another squ.iw, and n game one. Far out lo the front the eraekle of earliine and rifl^ t^dd that Webb w;is driving the scattered braves before him—that the comrade sjjuadron w.-is coming their way—that Rear ClifT had been sought by the Sioux in vain—that Indian wiles and strategj", Indian ipluek and staying^ power, all had more tlian met their inateh. Whatever the fnt« of Lamo Wolfs fighting force, now pressed by Henry's column, far in the southward hills, here in sight of the l)road Uig Horn valley, the white chief had. struclt a vital blow. Village, villagers, wounded and prisoners were all the spoil of the hated soldierj'. Here at the scene of IJlalte's minor niYair there appeared still in saddle just one undaunted, uuconqucred amazon whoso black eyes iia«hed -throiiffh the iwoolen hood that hid the rest of her face, whose lips had uttered a.s yet no sound, but from whom two soldiers recoiled at the cry of a third. "Look at the hand of iier, fellers! It 's whiter than mine'," "That's all right, Lanigan," an-| swered the jo\-ial voice of the leader they loved and laughed with. "Hold that ponj- steady. Now, by your ladyship's leave," and two long sinewy arms went circling about the shrinking rider's waist, and a struggling form was lifted straightway out of the saddle and deposited, not tpo gracefully, tm its moccasincd fe<'t. "Wo will remove this one imiK;dimeht to your speech," continued Blake, \vhercat the muffling worsted was swiftly unwound, "and then we will listen to our meed of thanks. Ah, no wonder you did not need a side-saddle that night ut Frayne. You rid»s odmirably a califourchon—My compliments, Mademoiselle , LaFleur—or should I say—Madame Moreau." For all answer I^lake received one quick, stinging slap in the face from that mittcnless little right band. Oapyrlclit, tM; br Xb* BolMit Oampwir. and xDild ijoediciDM^, >t Air. Oisooei CHAPTER 2fXI. Thanksgiving daj- at Fraj-ne! Much of the garrison was still atield, bringing back to their lines, and, let us hope, to their Senses, the remnants of Stabber'fi band, chased far into the Sweetwater Hills l>efore they would stopi while Hebry 's column .kept Lame Wolf in such active movement the misnamed cliieftain richly won his later sobriquet "The Skipper," The general had come whirling back from Beecher in his Concord wagon, to meet air. Hay as they bore that invalid homeward from the Big Horn. Between the fever-weakened trader and the famous frontier soldier there had been brief conference—all that' the doctors felt they could allow— and then the former had been put to bed u^der the care of his deroted wife, while the latter, without so much as sight of a pillow, had set forth again i out Sweetwater way to wind up the campaign. This time he went in saddle, sending his own team over the range of tfae, Medicine Bow to^carry a convalescent snbaltem to tne side of ia stricken faUier;' the sender, ignorant, possibly, of the post- commanders prohlUtion; ignoring! it,' jle, it. WM Imown ito kim. Sirs. L»aile aiiU Iicr devoted allies up the row hud tilled with goodies a wonderful luncheon basket, .wldle Mrs. Hay liad sent stores of wine for the use of botli invalids, and hud come down herself to see the start,, for, without a word indicative of reproof, the general had bidden Flint remove the blockade, simply saying he would assume all resjjonsibilit^-, both for Mrs. Hny and the young Indian girl, given refuge imder the trader's roof until the coming of her ow^n peo])le still out with Stnbber's band. Flint could not fathom it. He could only obey. And now, with the general gone and Beverly Field away, with Hay, homo and .Siccluded by orders from all questioning or other extraneous worry, with i the wounded I soldiers safely trundled into hospital. garrisf>n interest seemed to centef for the time mainly in that little Ogallala maid— Flint's sole Sioux captive, who was housed, said the much interrogated domestic, in Mrs. Hay's own room instead of Miss Flower's, while the latly of the house, when she slejjt at all. occu])ied a sofa near her husband's bedside. Then came the tidings that lllake, with the prisoners from No Wood Creek and lJ(?ar (MiiT was close at hand, nn<l everybody looked with eager eyes for the coming across the snowy prairie of that liomeward- liound etinvoy^—that big village of the Sioux, with its distinguished e.iptives, wounded and univoimded; one of the former, the young sub-chief Kagle Wing, alias Moreau—one of the .latter a self-constituted, martyr, since she was under no olHcial restraint—Nanette Flower, hovering ever, about the litter bearing that sullen and still defiant brave, whose side she refused to leave. Not until they reached Fort Frayne; not imtil the surgeon, after carefuT examination, declared there was no need of taking Moreau into hospi1al-^n(» reason why he should not be confined in the prison room of the guardhouse—were they able to induce the silent, almost desperate girl to return to her aunt. Not until Nanette realized that her warrior was to be housed within wooden walla wiience she would be excluded, could Mrs; Hay, devoted to the last, persuade tiie girl to reoceupy her old room and to resume the dress of civili/ation. Barring that worsted hoo<l, S I K" was habited lilce a chieftain's daughter, in gaily berwled and embroidered garments, when reeai)- t^red by Ulake's command. Onco within the trader's door, she had shut herself in her old room, the second floor front, refusing to see anybody frtmj outside the house, unless she could be permitted to receive visits from; the captive isioux, and this the major, ilintily, forebade. It wfi.s nightfall when the litter-bearers readied the post. Hay's rejoicing mules braying unmelodious ecstacy at sight! of their old stable. It was dark when the wounded chief was borne into the guard-house, uttering not a sound, and Nanette was led; within the trader's door, yet some one had managed to sec her face, for the story went all over the wondering post that very night—wonicn flitting with it from door to door—that every vestige of her Ijeauty was gone—she looked at least a dozen years older. Blake, when questioned, after the first rapture of the home-coming had subsided, would neither aiiirm nor deny. "She would neither speak to me nor barken," said he, whimsically. , "The only thing she showed was teetb rfnd —temper." j T^vo days after the safe lodgment of Eaglt Wing behind the bars, the telegrans were coming by dozens, and one week after that deserved in- carcerat on. Fort Frayne heard With mild be vilderment the major's/order for Moreau's transfer to thehos^ pital. By that time letters, too, were beginning to come, and, two nights after this removal to the little room but lately occnpicd by Lieut. Field-— this very Thanksgiving night, in fact —the single sentry at the door stpod Attention .to the - commanding^ officer who in i^erson ushered in a womonlj.

Just as tattoo was sounding on the infantry bugle, Esther Dade sat reading fairy stories at the children's bedside in the quarters of Sergeant Foster, of her father's comj)any. There had been Thanksgiving dinner with Mrs. IJ-ij-, an Amazonian feast since ail their lords were still away on Ber\icc and Sandy Bay and Billy, Jr., were perhaps too young to count. Dinner was all over by eight o'clock, and, despite some merry games, the youngsters' eyes were showing symptoms of the sandman's coming, when that privileged character, Hogan, Bay's hmg-tried trooper now turned major domo, appeared at the doorway of the little army parlor. He had been bearer of a lot of goodies to the children among the quarters of the married s(ddiers, and now, would Mrs. Dade please speak with Jlra. Foster, who had come over with him, ami Mrs. Dade departed for the kitchen forthwith. Presently she returned. "I'm going back awhile with Mrs. Foster," said she. "She's sitting tip to-niglit with poor Mr.s. Wing, who—" But there was no need of explanation. 'J'hey all knew. Thej' had laid so recently their wreaths of evergreen on the grave of the gallant soldier who fell, fighting at the Klk, and now another helpless little soul had come lo boar the buried name, and all that were left for mother and balie was wonum's boundless charity. It was Thanksgiving night, and wliilt! the wail of the bereaved aiiil stricken went up from more th ;in i ue of these humble tenements bclou the eastward bliiiV, there were seoren of glad and grateful hearts that lifted jiraise and thanksgiving to the tlir<jne on high, even thougli they knew not at the moment that they, too, might, even then, be roi)bed of all that stood between them and desidation. Once it happened in the story of our liard- flgiiling, hard used little army that a bov3' of fair young wives, nearly half a score in number in all the bravery of their summer toilets, sat in the shadow of the flag, all smiles and gladness and applause, joininj. in the garrison festivities on the nation's natal day, never dreaming of the awful news tiiat shptdd fell them ere the coming of another sun; that one and all they had been widowed more than a week; that the men they loved, whose names they b<)»re, lay hacked and mutilated bijyond recognition within sight of those very hills where now the men from Frayne were facing the same old foe. In the midst,of army life we are, indeed, in dl'alli, and the thank.sgiving of losing ones about the firesi<le for mercies thus far shown, is mingled ever with the dread of what the morrow may Unfohl. "Let me go too, mamma," was Esther's prompt up[>eal, as she heard her mother's words. "I can put tho children to bed while you and Mrs. Foster are over there." (To Bo Continued.)
