Thrusting fingers in mouth, I blasted a whistle in the three high notes of a nighthawk's cry, my call for Hussein, From the norlh, wild and thrilling, much nearer than I'd hoped, came his answer. The old devil had heard ni«. Two hundred yarda to my right, 3 bay bombshell burst from the pine timber, spraying snow and Ice in every direction. "Hussein!" Shouting and waving, I leaped into the open meadow between UK. Though dawn w*f now upon us, the light was not good enough (or hltn to see me yet. Just then a grotip of 20 gaudily-feathered Sioux cascaded wit of the timber on his trail. Now, either Hussein saw me or I was done for, for the Sioux spotted us both, coming np- MSTttttfTf* »Y MfA URYlCf, PHC Cearney that morning, Riding In, 1 levered my rifle into the air in ;he. steady cadence n( timed fire.

T ran 38 yard* toward Hussein before h-e saw me and broke into a gallop ki my direction. Swinging onto his beck, I gave him his head. Behind us, the Sioux burst into renewed howls, the three or four who hnd muskets Tiring them haphazardly. The winter-thin Indian ponies had no chance once Hussein settled into his slride. The snow- sheathed miles fell away beneath his reaching feet like loose white pages nicked into the wind. Halfway to the fort, the Sioux quit, allowing me to slow Hussein first to a hand-gallop, finally to his spacp-eaHng single-foot, Jn this way we came to Phil Vladivostok is less than 100 miles from the North Korean border.

I followed him, listening lo him rap oul the colonel's order to Serfeants Kelly and Fairchild. When they had gone, h< turned on me, .snapping, "Well, what do you want?" . M I saw another wood train le*>v- ng. You forgot to tell Kelly to stop them," "Clayton, I don't like you. To me you're an Indian-lover and a rotten scout. Yon, yourself, reported those Indians 50 miles up the Tongue, Even \t they're coming, they won't be on us for 12 hours. I can have that train back in six. And I mean to have that wood." AT this point Carrington stepped out of his office, wanting to know what the verbal firing was about, Fetterman told him. "Fetterman, take a big detail Forty mounted, 40 foot. Go oul and get that wood train. And Fellerman! Don't go beyond Lodge Trail Ridge. I don't give a boot what happens, you're not to go beyond Lodge Trail Ridge. 1 jus want that wood train brought in Is that clear'" "Right!" shouted Fetterman. Within minutes the ,staclc:idc !iiles Mivung^open and Capt. W. J. Feltcrman rode out nt the hcinj of his HO men lo keep his dale vith destruction. lie disobeyed his orders before ? was out of sight of the foil. Ten Indian decoys showed thcin- < elves in the brush along B:g Piney Creek. They were so close .0 the fort Cat L'inglon actually .brew a couple 'of rannonshots n't them. Feigning panic, the decovs cut and ran for the hills to the lorth.—away fvnm the wood train, ""ettermnn swung his command after (hem. That was (he Insl any white nan, myself excepted, saw of Fel- jrinnn and bis troopers, alive. t • • JEEING him make this idiotic move (he had refused point' jiank to have me scout for him) I ran to C;irrin»ton. For once the colonel was ahead of me. "Clayton," he called, as I come up, "a •elief column is going out at once. F'clterman may get into real trou- jle. Capt. Ten Kyck will go after lim with the rest of the infantry. I wont you to tio with him." When I started up the east fork of Peno Creek to try and head Feltcrman, I ran into a literal wasp's nest of hostiles. The woods were alive with them. Only the fact some of the warriors were chanting a last-minute war prayer, saved me from blundering into their arms. I grabbed Hussein's nose, tied it tight with a piggtn' string, snubbed him short-up in a dense clump of birch, began snaking down-creek on my belly for a view of the ridge. Far down the ridge, almost to the bottom, rode Felterman with his 40 pony-soldiers. Behind him, halfway down, came the remaining group of walk-a-heaps, the whole command being already deep within the jaws of the waiting trap. 1 had time lo see Hie decoys riding back back and forth down on the creek flats, still drawing Fetter man's nre, before both sides of the ridge seemed to erupt Indians. They came rabbiting out of every conceivable cover, armed to the teeth. (T« B« Continued) South Mountain park, consisting) of nearly 15,000 acres near Phoenix,!
