Fetterman laughed hysterically. J Cotne on, Clayton! We're almost there!" At the same timt h« swerved his hort-- for the wagons threw his empty rifle in the faces of the oncoming Indian*, and drew his saljer. In a stirrup-locked charge we headed ror deaih. For the third time that day t»ve Indian tcrces split open »o make a path for us. But this time they got the wedge in their red rears, an unprotected, tender quarter. Charging toward UB through th e opening, rode Fetlerman's 30 troopers led by Lieutenant Wands, from the cover of the wagorm. Once inside the wagon circle, we learned Wands in his pistol- charge had carried through his section ot Indians. Looking around for us at the other end of the valley, he joule" see nothing but hostiles, assumed w: were wiped out and headerf his command for the wagons. He hadn't suffered a 'casualty, man or horst. and when he saw us break clear had organized his remarkable charge. Fetterman was at my side, joining me in peering through a wagon wheel. "Clayton, I'm writing a dispatch for you to get through to Carring:on. Use your own judgment on wher, and how to leave, Yo« can make U, of course?" "I'll never know whether I coiiM or not, Captain, becau** I'm MH some*, me not going to try." "How's that?" His face was colorless. "Look here, man. You saved my life today, I'm not forgetting that But this ic an order. If you're afraid—* "Yes. Captain, Tm afraid. Also m using my head, not losing my hair. And you're suffering shock. Better go lie down someplace." •Ite'i right," young Wands broke m, earnestly. "It would be murder to send a man out now. And J>* wouldn't get to the fort before Carrington started looking for us." TTK' obviousness at VK'M made Fetterman furious. "t beli«v* I'm senior here. Wand*. Any question of that?" "Non« a* all. Captain. Just giving my opinion." * "Here the} comer yelled a trooper. And eoro« they did, wave after wave, with about SO to the wave, each group dashing a little closer before breaking and washing back, the last bunch breaching our wsgon line, 15 or 20 of them riding their squealing ponies into our midst. Had the others followed lo. another massacre would have been officiaJ. r those who got into the wagon circle, one rode his way out, perhaps living to boas< of his exploit, but I tnke leave to doubt it. I might have known more of his fate but for the fact that he rode me down going out, I woke up in Fort Phil ,'Cearney, not much the worse for all the excitement, .save B respectable scalp-wound which mercifully spared me the jolting detail; of the ride back ii one of Carrington's mule drawn ambulance*. As soon as I could I weo< to see Carrintfton. "Colons, I want to resign," 1 told him. "Now, Clayton, slow down. I know Fetterman and yo« had a UH>« fim, but—" To Admit Japt !

Now, Clayton I want you to slay on. I'll back you ut. when you're right." "Sure, Colonel. It's fair. But that's neither here nor there." "Well, what's eating you, man?" "Colonel, it's Eci Geary's opinion, and mine through him, that the whiskey running thnt goes on oul here has more than a little lo do with the hostile outbreaks. Not with the attilndes of the big chiefs like Red Cloud and Crazy Horse, you understand. But you know that for every raid led by one of (heir rank, there's a dozen wagon- train burnings and seltler-scalp- ings with which they have nothing lo do and which ore, in fact, ex- prtssly against their orders." "Well, what of it?" The Colonel's question showed impatience. "You know an Jmli;m wilj do anything when he's drunk. We can't help that." • • • "J THINK you can," 1 disagreed, •* "and I'm willing to help you. Back in Kansas City 1 had a little tuick-up against the man who Geary says is the big wheel in these whiskey operations. I know this man, I know he's out here, operating, and I want to go after him.

It there's anything else I can do for you, Clayton—" I started lo say there wasn't when I remembered a forgotten voice. . . . "Colonel, my compliments. Should our paths cross again. ., ." I turned to Carrington. "There is something you could do, Colonel. I'd. like to know where General Custer is now." (T. Open forBusiness MODERN HOME Interior Decorators Highway 61 S. C.
