Be did not enlist until he felt it his duty to go with his state, Yon did not enlist for any other reason, did yon, Mr. Wyle?" "Ol bourse not, bnt I'm a born Virginian, you know." "Well, I think Mr. Kenton acted no •cording to his conscience and best judgment, and that the guards would have lhad reason to be proud of him nu an officer." "Yes, I think so, too," replied the mother. The lieutenant realized that he was, walking on dangerous ground and let •the subject drop, but in his own mind he decided • that he had new cause for bating Roynl Kenton and removing him from his path. During a moment of silence a plan flashed through his mind, and he presently said: "It is an old saying, you know, that blood will tell. It may prove false in this case, and I hope it will, for Kenton is a fine young man. Suppose, however, he should actually desert to the Yankees and come back to fight against ns?" "Then 1 should be glad to bear of his being shot as a deserter and a truitorl" •exclaimed the girl 4* her eyes flashed -and her color deepened. "He would deserve it," added the .mother. Duke Wyle had made his call intending to make every effort to discover just .how he stood in Marian Percy'sestima- Duke makes a call. 'tion. The presence of the mother acted as a restraint, and the demeanor of the daughter waa not exactly what he had hoped for. In one sense he waa disappointed and chagrined. In another he was encouraged and enthusiastic. "I can wait, "he said to himself as be walked down street. "When the news comes back hero that Kenton has •deserted to the enemy, I shall have thq field all to myself 1" The reception of Royal Kenton half an hour later may not have been more cordial, but his visit was more prolonged, and he appeared to glean morn comfort from it. When tbe act of his non- election to position was incidentally referred to, he said: "I did not seek for any position. Indeed, had it been left to me to accept or decline, I should have remained in the ranks." "Thisis only the beginning," replied Marian. "Virginia hits always been ready to honor those who honor her. Mother and I both feel a little disappointed, bat wo know it will come out right in the end." "Your mind is fully made up?" 'queried Mrs. Percy, thinking of Duln Wyle's fling about desertion. "Fully, ma'am," replied Kenton. "I stand or fall with Virginia." Two days later the company left for •tbe front. Every soul in tbe ancient village turned out to bid them godspeed .and goodby. Mnrian Percy shook hands with many, with Royal Kenton and Duke Wyln among the number. People remarked that she was excited and enthusiastic, but if her lover was among =those over whose beads waved the state flag of Virginia she gave no sign, not •even to bim. The Shenandoab guards were made •Company A of a Virginia regiment, which was among the first on the battlefield of Bull Run. When it was known that tbe Federals would attack, when they were observed marching out of Oenterville on that July morning to find tbe Confederates and give battle, Lieutenant Wyle found opportunity to V *ay to Steve Brayton, who had been made a sergeant in tho company; "Well, it seems that Yankee is with twyet." "Ho nn's right on band, lootenant," •was the reply. "How has be behaved himself?" "Right well, 1 take it, Hain't beard one o' the wen find any fault." "He's a deep one, Steve—deeper than I thought. He's been biding bis time. If he gets a chance today, he'll go over to tbe Yankees, f bis is what he has been waiting for." "Shoo! But yo 1 don't think so?" "Of course I do, Tho captain wants yon to make it your business today, in «ase tbe Yankees come out, to watch him.

The regiment to whiob tlio Sueuondouh guards was uttaoliod luovfld down hou\ ttio plutuuu and went into camp, it BM m» broken ««a deleaved, au^ yet it nao, ramed and won • reputation, fiv* ery one of the 10 companies bad been more or teas disorganized, but the guards perhaps worst of all. That this company should have .been led back Into the hottest of the fight by a private, •nd that it should have brought oft th» fold one of the guns over Which the Eight had been so bloody, furnished occasion for remarks throughout the entire brigade. Duke Wyle was no coward. There wasn't a taint of craven blood in his Veins. It Was so also with his fellow lieutenant. The fall of the captain and the rush of the Federals had stampeded officers as well as men. War was a new thing, and few had served an apprenticeship. Wyle followed the company back, but in the burly burly became separated from it. He knew it was Royal Kenton cairying the flag and leading. He saw the gun brought off, and he saw General Jackson halt the costless, hatless and powder begrimed men to question them. "He's t toick even if he is a Yankee, and I'll shake bands with him!" said the lieutenant to himself as he advanced to rejoin his company. That was Duke Wyle, the man. He hadn't taken 80 steps before Duke Wyle, the rival lover, cursed tbe luck which had given to another all tho glory he had hoped to win, and he.growled: "1 owe him another for this, and I can't pay him off any too soon!" The first rnnn of his company he encountered was Stove Brayton. If SteVe had given way in the knees before the fight opened, he bad pulled himself together in good shape as soon as he smelled powder. He had been the first man to turn and follow Kenton, and he had fought beside him to capture the gun. "Waal, lootenant," grinned Steve as he awkwardly saluted, "I.kept my eye on that Yankee all the time, but I didn't hev to shoot him!" "Curse him, but what business had he to tvssurne command of the company?" replied Wyle. "I was just about to halt and re-form when yon fools .all rushed off after him!" "Yes—I see!" remarked'Steve, "but I wouldn't find any fault if I was yo'. We uns is the only company in the regiment which captured a cannon, and the boys feel as peart as game chickens abbut it. Reckon I wouldn't say nuth- in agin the Yankee either! It won't look exactly right, you see!" "You and the Yankee have suddenly become bosom friends!"sneered tbe officer. "Not exactly, lootenant, but I hain't got nnthin agin him no mo', if henn's a Yankee spy, we orter hev about 10,000 mo' of 'era on our side!" Late that evening after the stragglers had rejoined their commands and order had been brought out of confusion Lieutenant Wyle received an order to report at brigade headquarters. On his arrival be was admitted to the presence of General Jackson, who bad that day won bis famous sobriquet of "Stonewall." "Lieutenant Wyle,"saf.d the general as be received him,'"I am sorry to learn that your captain is so severely wound' ed that it will be months before he will be able to take the field again. I saw him in the field hospital two hours ago and congratulated him on tbe heroism displayed by his company. I wish also to congratulate you, and through you eaob and every man. That was • grand rally made In the face of disaster. One of your men acted like a hero of old. If yon will give me bis name, 1 will aee that beia promoted to the position be deserves. Ho is n private, la be not?" "Y-yes, sir," atammered the lieutenant, confused and chagrined that his rival should be thus honored. "His name, air, is Ike" It was on bia tongue to rob Royal Kenton of his laurel* and transfer them to Ike Baxter, bat he could not do it. "It was a private named Kenton,! believe," he eald as be lifted bis eye* to those of the general again. "Thanks. He is a brave man, and you ought to be proud of him. Yon must not feel put out about it, lient*» nant. All of ua are new to war yet. Coolness will come with experience, have no fault to find with any of tbe officers or men. That's all, sir." The offloor saluted and retired and made bis way back to his company. But for one thing be would have sent (or Royal Kenton and offered him hie hand and his congratulations. Both loved tho same maiden. Even If both bad stood on tbe sauio footing in her estimation when tho company left thnvul ley events bad occurred that duy which would give bia rival the lead. The first thing Lioutouant Wyle did after reaching bis lines was to send foi Ike Baxter. He was much of the same mold Hb Steve Bray ton—u small farmer, ghiftloBs and uneducated and having s decided distaste for anything like hard work, but far moro bigotod in bis seo tiouul feelings. lio was not one of the handful Konton hud rallied uud led back, but was forced up w<tli others latter on uud bad bis musket boon examined after tho battle was over it wouk nave been discovered that it hod not boon once discharged. "Ah, I am glad to see you, my brave boy I" said the lieutenant as Ike came soutting into Ills tent. "I want to com- plirnont and congratulate you on the pluck and bravery you displayed in thai battle. I bud iny eye on you inoet of the Unto, and I never saw a cooler man in the face of danger." "Yo 1 —yo' douu 1 mean it, looteuantl' gasped Ike, who fully realized that liii oondnot was open to censure instead o pruibo. "Mean itt Of course I do! Iain proud to uuvo such a brave man in the ranks of the company.

"Yw. you did, a power ti> help |rivi err) back," replied the officer," "and 'II we that you are properly rewarded, ly the Way, Ike, what are the tnen aay* iig ftbbut that Yankee?" "He tjn can't be no Yank." "Why not?" "Why, he nn font dead agin 'em. 'hey all i* sayin that he's a snorter to Ight. Reckon be'll get office." "Look here, Ike, don't yon be taken n and done for like the rest! Do you mow why he enlisted?" 'On account of tar and feathers, I reckon." "Exactly. Yon had him boxed up hat night. He wasn't ready to akip, and he was afraid of being coated. He reckoned on deserting to his friends When we got down here." "Then why didn't we uns fix 'em?" . f A.h, I am qffiO, to see v.W- m V brave boy." "We had our eyes on him, but he waa too sharp for us. He knew we were watching him, and he didn't dar'to bolt. .He had a better plan than that. When he grabbed that flag and led you back—and I saw yon were one of the first to follow—do you know what his plan was?" "To git that oannon, I reckon." "No, sir! No, sir! He fooled the whole pack of you! He intended to lead you into a trap and get yon all captured." "Yo'doan'nay 1" "But I do! I know all about it. If I hadn't followed on with the rest of the company, not one of you would have got back alive.'' "Then, dod rot his Yankee hide, why doan' we uns jump right onto him heavy?" shouted the excited Ike. "Because we've no positive proofs, you see. He's been too deep and sly thus far. Yon see, he's even fooled almost every man in our company. Yon haven't no love fur Yankees, I take it!" "Dod rot 'em, I reckon I killed about 30 of 'em down thar', but I wish it had been a hundred!" "I wish this follow was out of our company," mused Wyle. "Bo long as he is with us we have got to be on our guard against his Yankee tricks. He'd feel proud to take us all over to the Yankees." "Why doan' yo' nn git him out?" asked Ike after a moment's reflection. "I'd like to, but how can 1? I've just come from brigade headquarters, where General Jackson asked after him and as much as said he'd promote him. He'll probably give him the place I want you to have. He's fooled Jackson 'the same as be has the rest of us." "And Jackson will make h« nn a corporal?" asked Ike. "Sure to.", "Say, lootenant," whispered Ike as he drew- a step nearer, "1 reckon 1 know bow to get that Yuuk outer this company!" "How?" "Shoot him out!' "I—I don't understand!" "If be un goes, do I git to be corporal?" 'Yea." "Then yo' leave it to me! Mebbe it will take a week or two, bnt yo' bet yo'r last dollar bo un's got to got" CHAPTER VII. After Bull Run Federals and Confederates began making earnest preparations for war. The holiday waa over. There was no longer talk of 00 or 00 day campaign, of soldiers returning to tho farm in time to harvest the props. While the Federals gathered on tbe plains of Arlington to learn the tactics of war the Confederate! remained on the fields where their first victory had been won uud prepared for what was to come. There was fighting in the west, uiuiius were being raised and troops moved in every direction, but we fol low only those which bad confronted ouoh other ou that famous field. Organiitod and roorgmiice, drill, scout, recomioiatmiwo, arm uud equip, In the beginning the various companies had been allowed to select their own officers by ballot. After Bull Run all oorumis- lions cuuio from tho secret my of war; ill noucoojiuisaionud officers were duly tppolnted. Duke Wyle wa» oorumia- sioned captain of the 8h<waudoi»h guards, the second liouUrmpt was ad vunoed, and toe orderly sergeant was promoted to a lieutenancy. Among those who secured brief furloughs wore Captain Wylo and Steve Brayton. The latter reached uonie first. Tbe story o< tbe buttle wa» known, but tho story of tho rally—the incident which hud di reoted General JaukNnu's attention to Royal Keuton— was newa to the people mid u great surprise. Prayton bud no need to exaggerate fauto to compel cheers for tho "Yankee," us Keiitou WHI still called. He told the atory over au4 over again, always to an Interested «udieuoo, •ud be Always wound up witb tbe oh •ervutiou! "I reckon yo' all know that 1 was agin bini and ktuder taped, to put on thu tur and (outliers, bu% I've changed uiy mind. Dura uiy bido if l dou'l jvish. bo was captain of oilr company I" One duy a» tie nuwwd the Percy mansion Mtuiun \vus at the gate, seemingly waiting (or him. "( iiaya roud o( the U»tUe aud a great deal uf talk about it," she said, "but won Id yon mind telling mother And 1 of tho part taken by our own company? We are naturally taore interested in them than any other participants." Sitting on the veranda with mother and daughter for an audience and using a piece of chalk to draw a rude diagram on the boards, Steve Brayton kept them deepbr interested for an hour. "You were at first driven back?" queried Marian when he had finished. '' Driv 1 right back like a flock of sheep, and thar' hain't no use to deny it," he replied. "Where were your officers?" "Runnln as fast as the rest of ua." "And Mr. Kenton rallied you?" "He did, ma'am. Abner Jenkins was earryin our company flag, and he tumbled down and left it lyin on the ground, a* rigbjfe9bebJ|a^ln jvith Kenton, a bout and y oils fbnpllnmit and rally." "And did the officen rally, too?" persisted ;Mnripn. "\$Bal, yes, but they was pnrty slow about it. We had got the cannon and were;d>rawin it off afore I saw any of 'em. 'Reckon they feel mightily cut up over it, fur they allus said the Yankee wouldn't stand fire." Steve Brayton was not a close observer, or he might have discovered a secret that afternoon. Both mother and daughter exhibited the greatest interest and asked him many questions, and when be took his departure be said to himself: "Durn my hide if they wasn't more Interested than half the men!" Two or three days later Captain Wyle appeared, and Steve Brayton vanished. The captain expected to create a sensation, but was bitterly disappointed. Everybody was friendly, but Brayton had told the story of the rally and put the credit whore it belonged. He bad plenty of excuses to urge, and his story was quite different from Bray ton's, but somehow it {ailed to go. While he waa congratulated on his promotion, which was strong evidence in itself of his good standing with his superior officers, he had not rallied his flying company and led it back, and no one could be quite satisfied with bis record. On the second evening of his arrival be called upon tbe Percys. His sole reason for returning borne at that time was to make this call. The victory which he had helped to achieve, his promotion, the laudatory notices he bad received in his home newspaper, all these things went to make him believe that he would be accorded a frank welcdfce by mother and daughter and that opportunity might be given him to plead his cause. The captain's welcome was cordia enough, and after the first salutations conversation naturally turned to the •war. He took an early opportunity to laughingly remark: "Well, I suppose you have heard al about our Yankee?" "To whom do you refer, captain?' stiffly inquired Marian. "Why, to Reason, of course. 1 believe you both knew him? I had no idea Be drew up hit mwftet and deliberately fired tokiU., that be could be induced to enlist, au< I am surprised that be did not desert t his friends before the battle opened." "Mr. Kenton believud it bis duty aa a citiaenof Virginia to take up arms in her cause," replied the mother. "And instead of deserting be teems to have led your company to victory,' quiotly added Marian. "He was simply in the rear as we faced about and was carried along with tbe rush," explained the captain "Neverthelessbe is a brave man, aud 1 hope bo ia in earnest." "Why shouldn't bo be?" asked the girl. " 'Blood will tell' is an old saying I shan't be surprised to wake up somi morning und find that he has deaertec to the eueuiy." "You do Mr. Konton gross injustice!' oxcluiuittd Marian as her color oamo arid wont, and her eyes looked brighter than be had ever seen them before, have seen nothing in him to lead me to holiuvo that ho would countenance anything dishonorable, and brave uieu ure uexpr recorded as deserters." If tbt captain bad planned to make her betray her truo feelings toward Koyul Kenton, ho had succeeded. Her looks and .demeanor, added to tho words »ho uttered with BO uniuh spirit, Hutit- tlud him that his own cause, uule«* something unforeseen should wise, wan bopelow. While he wu» « iu«n of hot temper be bad « great self control, uud wh«n be left the house neither mother nor daughter suspected bin bltternotiB of fuoling, "If* no u*o to deceive myself!" ho uuitturud ua lie walked slowly down the struet. "if tbe Yankee doesn't detiert, aud If ho U not killed In buttle or other- wUe, be will return tp wed her.

Huiiiuihiinj did happen—two or throe Houiutl(iii|u—bofoiu thu ntpttiiu'u letum to camp, Iko liyxU-r thoroughly understood what t'ufiiuin Wylo al-ulred^ and he \vu» euguv for mi opportuiifty to carry out iiib witihuu. One night \\4ien both were on gnuid ulioitt the ' whyojed. |n li|« Lout, (Jruw uy am! deliberately flred to kill, Kenton was hurdly 90 feet distant, face turned away and completely at his mercy. The leavy bullet passed between his arm ind side and sped across the camp and tilled a poor sergeant as he lay sleeping on .his bed. The would be assassin pleaded accident, and It was natural to be- ieve that it was such. Kenton was one of tbt first to excuse him, aud not tbe slightest suspicion of the soldier's murderous intentions found lodgment in his mind, ' Another incident, and one with far more pleasant surroundings, occurred tbe very next day. A message came to the commanding officer of the guards Prom Stonewall Jackson to send Private Kenton to his headquarters. The general looked at the young man before bim for half a minute before saying: "Yon beaded the detachment which captured the gun in a hand to hand fight. You did nobly. Who is captain of your company?" "Captain Wyle, sir." "Ah, yes. Captain Trnesdale was wounded and crippled for life. 1 see. And you are still a private?" "Yes, sir." , "H'm! I ought to have remembered you, but 1 have been busy—very busy. Is your captain with his company?" "No, sir. He left several days ago on furlough." "H'm! And haven't you asked for a furlqugh too?" "1 have not." / "Well, we'll see about It later on. Tomorrow I shall bo away. The day after at 10 o'clock in the morning I wish yon to report here tome. Stay! I will write an order to that effect, which will be your authority for leaving camp. Show it to your commanding officer." And when Kenton returned to the guards and related his interview and exhibited the order all congratulated bim—all except Ike Baxter. That individual felt himself greatly wronged, and bis rnntterings took the form of words: "Drat that darned Yankee, bnt he's jest gwine to boss this bull army if the captain doan' dun hurry back to camp!" here by eating pans green. The cause of the act is attributed to long continued iltnesi and poverty.
