'The Yanks may keep tftsix Months, sand doorin that time thar's goin to be ta heap of lyin about yo' to that gal. f She'll bo told that yo' deserted or jneb- (be that yo' are dead. W kin bet Cap- taiii Wyle won't let no grass grotv un| der his feet. I've hearn that she was over in the mountains." "Yes." "And I was told that Captain Wyle and his critter company had bin Bent back yere to help hold the Yankees. Can't yo' see?" • "Yos, but I can "tact.", "Why not? It's comin on dark, and It's goin to rain. Bee how the line has •• straggled I Them bluecoata hain't got tnore'n one eye open. Tell yo' what my plan is.

Yo'll hev. a show to explain things anyway, and that will make dough of the captain'* cake." "And what about you?" asked Ken ton. "Waal, I'd just BB lief run np thar with yo'. I ain't jest exactly satisfied . about all this thing. Mebbe I'll sm- render to the Yanks agin, and inebbo I'll go' back to the company and let the major pile it on and be hanged to him I I want a day or two to think it over. What do yo' say?" "I'm agreed," replied Kenton after a moment's tbonght. '''That's bizness! Jeet about 40 rods • down yere I'll give yo' the word. We nns will break for them woods to the right. We'll be fired on and mebbe killed, but we've got to take chances. Once we reach the woods We are safe." The afternoon was rapidly fading into • dusk, and a fine raijghad begun to fall. 'The cavalrymen wen strung out BO that there were gaps of several feet between horses, and as the prisoners were sing- Ing songs and seemed in good spirit* the vigilance of. the captors was naturally relaxed. The wall which inclosed tho field on the right suddenly, ended, and then came a field which was open because the fencing had been used by sol- •diersfroin one Bide or the other for their campfires. It was a distance of about •80 rod* to the edge of the woods, and It wai likely they would not only be fired on, but pursued by some of the troopers. Brayton stepped into the road -ahead of Kenton, increased his pace to .reach the center, of a gap between two horsemen and suddenly threw up his -hand as a signal. Both men were well into the field and running at the top of their speed before an alarm was raised. Three or four of the troopers on that side opened fire with their carbines, but pursuit was prevented by a dozen other prisoners evincing a disposition to alsc imike a bolt. Some of the half dunon bullets came unpleasantly near, but net one struck the fugitives, and in two or three minutes they were safe in the woods. .With darkness already at hand, theie was no fear of pnrsrii. i" Vank, wo uns clul that as neat as a r ir backiii down a bee tree!" said "there as they stopped to recover their breath and shako hands. "And now what'.-" asked Kenton. "Now fur the mountains. Beckon we'd best put on steam and git out n' this locality as soon as possible. I know this ground nix? will lead the way." Stopping to rust for a few minutes every hour or t-o, the pair held .their coarse for tho Alleghauies and about 8 o'clock in tbo morning turned 'into • thicket among the foothills to rest and •leep. It was still raining, and the aigbt was raw and cold, but they crept .Into tho thick buwneB and were soon fast .asleep. It was 8 o'clock before they •opened their eyes and then only because •disturbed by a great clatter on the high•way only a few yards distant. Brayton was tbo first to move forward and make •an investigation. Ho returned in four or five minutes to say; "I can't jest make 'em ont. Tbar'a •bout a hundred men, and all on critters, and tbo bull heap are southerners, but only a few are in uniform. They can't be recruits goin to the army, be- BBUBe they are goin the wrong way," "It may be a Confederate raiding or acouting party," suggested Kenton. "Mebbe so, bnt we uns don't want nutbin to do with 'em. Hang we if they hain't a bilious lookln lot!" The fugitives waited for a quarter of •n bonr after the last hoof beat* bad died away and then stole out into the highway. Tbo rain bad oeaaed, bat it Steve Bray ton'took it upon himself to answer in the negative and then asked what crowd it was. "It's Kurttel Mosby and hi* gang. They hain't touch'on the fight, t reckon, but they do pester the Yankees like all git oat. Most of 'em are farmers, and some of 'em live around yere. Whar did you uhs cum from?" Stove told her of the fight with Cns- ter and their escape, the night before, and sho lilted her hands and cried out! "Then you uusduu seen the Yankees?" "Yes'm." "Beg'lar livq Yankee sogero?" "Yes'in." "And yo'got away olive?" "Of co'se." "Waal, I wouldn't 'a' believed itt Mrs. San) Duncan dun tole me them Yankees killed everybody with tomahawks as soon as they got holt of 'em I Yo' nns must hev bin plwerful cute to git away." Breakfast bad been finished when there oatne a knock at the door, and nest moment a man in the uniform of a Confederate cavalry sergeant entered the cabin, He bad been tent back by Colonel Mosby, he said, to ask for the loan of a horse and equipments. He used the term "loon," but it was pretty plain that he meant to tttke no refusal. The woman replied that her husband had sot out for Woodstock the niyht before on horseback, and therefore it was impossible to grant the colonel's request. The sergeant was going away without a word to our two friends, but after reaching his horse he returned and asked: "What command do yon fellers belong toF' "To Captain Wyle's cavalry company, " replied Keuton. "Where is it?" "I don't know." "Humphl Whar yo'goin?" "None of yo'r biznessl" answered Steve, who had been roiled by tbo ser- gent's supercilious airs and lofty tone. "Oh, it bain', eh? Mebbe yo've got a pass in yo'r pocket to allow of yo'r rambling around the kentry? If so, I'll take a look at it." "Yp 1 hain't big enough!" "What! Now you uns either show a pass, or I'll take yo' along to Kurnel Mosby! He'll mighty soon find out whar yo' belong!" "Yon see," began Kenton, who, realized that it was foolish to arouse the man's, anger and suspicion, "we were guarding the stores at Harrisonburg, and the Federal cavalry came in yesterday and" "Whar'a yo'r pass?" interrupted the sergant. "Wbar's yo'rs?" demanded Steve. "Show yo'r pass, or I'll take yo' to thekurnel!" "I should like'to explain the case to yon," said Kenton, motioning to Steve not to interrupt him. " We are Confederate soldiers. We were captured at Harrisonbnrg by the Federal* yesterday forenoon, but escaped at dark last night. Therefore wo baye no pass and do .not need a pass." "Yo' may be all right, and yo' may be a couple of Yankee spies!" replied the cergeant. "If yo' are straight, yo'll come along with me and explain to the knrnel. 'Deed, but yo've got to come, straight or crooked!" He bad left his revolver and carbine on the saddle. He started for hia horse, bnt Steve was there before him. He- had stepped softly ont while Kenton was explaining and was now in posses- lion of both firearms and a supply of' amranuiticMi, Even as the trooper reached the gate,Stove gave his horse « ilup and sent him galloping away and! hen turned and asked: "Wbo'stakin anybody toseetheknr- el?

"Goin to git shet of yo' about the fust thing!" answered Steve. "Left facet Forward march! Keep goin right down the road till yo' mid tho knrnel and then give him our love!"

He found out that Ike bad been exchanged and lad rejoined . bis company, and on two occasions he bad good re&Jbns to believe that the man secretly met her iu the neighborhood of tbe house. Owing to tbe interruption of the mails, it was only it long intervals that Marian heard from Royal Kenton. For a month previous to the battle in which be was captured she bad heard no word from him. When news came, It was from Captain Wyle "~~~lfjnjn bis second visit to the Haven, fits company 'Was acting as a roard for a wagon train of forage gath- ired in the valley, and bis stay was arief.

Incidentally, as if the matter was of little or no moment to her, he mentioned tbe fact of General Jackson saving become suspicions of Kenton and suggesting the detail which was made and of hia having beard' only a day or two before that tbe Federals had descended on tbe post and captured the entire Confederate command.
