Qn the, 1)90 . 6. of :Preen ,Lake, ; in
Minnesota, there lived •a sturdy, while
haired frontiersman named , Walter
Brown:. He Wll9 one of thoSd-adven
'tarolus'spirita o'er to be found; iil'th . o
van of advancing civilization, always
courting the free, wild air of the prai
rie, and rejoicing in the profound depths
of uninhabitable furegls. '
But the country became - nioYe and
more thickly sottled,and Walter Broun
_became uneasy. His wife had borne
to him a daughter UM - third or fourth
year of their yesidence at the head Wa
ters of the St. CreiZ,:whom he called
Leonora. She was a good girl, and the
idol of lice father. le purchased a
rifle for her when but 'twelve years
old, and took the utmost pains in
teaching her the use of it, ,She was
brave and steady of nerve, and soon
acquired wonderful skill as a shot, and
the number of prairie chickens, part
ridges, wild water fowls, and other
..mnfl_gamo, she managed to shoot
each day, was _
ally she would shoot a deer, and ono
eventful morning, by a' lucky shot
through the eye into the brain, she
killed a bear.
When she came home with the news
her father'could scarcely credit,hcr.—
But knowing her perfectly truthful
nature, ho danced about the room for
joy, and seizing the sturdy little maid,
he mounted her upon his shoulders
and insisted upon Carrying her all the
way to the spot where the dead bruin

onora was then sixteen, and engaged
to be married to a handsome young
trapper by the name of Watson, who
had joined her father in business.
The death of her mother had made
it necessary to postpone the wedding,
and in the interim NValter decided to
move to Northwest Minneiota. r i che
„getting too near, and
hunting and trapping were bad. As
the young man had proved up and pre
empted a quarter section, of land near
Taylor's Falls, he did not wish to ei

persuading Leonora to agree to write
to him, he bade her an affectionate
Brown lived in, Minnesota for three
or four years in peace and quiet, find

when all at once young Watson ar
rived, and renewed the proposition of
marriage with Leonora. The old man
had about determined to move no
more, and had accordingly located and
pre-empted several thousand acres of
land about him, and learning from
Watson that he had money enough to
do likewise, proposed that be should
go down to St. Paul and buy land war
rants with his money, and take up all
the laed,he could "swing." le might
then marry Leonora, and they two to
work, and after budding plenty of sta
bling, etc., would get a good stock of
cattle and sheep, and try and lead a

~ One. mortiing , q4,she'lwas strolling
artm od the lake,lifle in , hand, she no•
ticed three canoe loads of Indiansiphd
of the,, , water, steadily nod:stealthily ,
approaching the spot where her father
and lover were at work. She dill not
immediately apprehend, any Jragedy,
but in some unaccountable way she felt'
impelled to remain and :watch their
motions. Slid therefore conecaletiber
self behind the top. Oa fallen tree, and'
observed their movements, which grew
.more and more suspicions. „ There
were two.lndians in each canoe, and
after pulling 'steadily to ,a point, where
a thick, overhanging birch, tree afford
ed conceal ifl Op t . for t , their canoes, they
disembarked, and•erept carefully and

men were, chopping: •Soddenly , wi,th
a ,yell that. made , the.forest ring, and
which echoed and re-echoed across the
broad, still lake, they sprang upon
their victims and bore them to the
earth. " •
Leonora trembled with excitement
and apprehension ; expecting nothing
loss than to witnesst tho horrible butch
ei•y of'her father and' lover at oiled.'
But this did not seem to be the pur
pose of the Indians, for, tying th,e,urms
;of the captives behind them,they took
to the canoes, where taking the old
man into one, and the young man into
the other; tlieY shoved boldly into the
jake, and paddled rapidly down tow
ard where the house stood. Leonora
divined their intent instantly.
"Ha !" she said to herself, "they de
sign capturing me, too. They deem
that an easy job, perhaps!" and her
eYe's • flashed and her face flushed with
anger. "See! there is a fourth canoe,
which they no doubtless suppose will
- ca,ry This villainous work has
been well calculated ;but ha I you bad
savages! you have mistaken your girl
'this time! Leonora BrOWn had been
taught Moro things than • to . ' cook a
venison . steak. Oh, dear, dear, father,
year Leonora will show you how
bravely she can succor you, and how
your instructing her in the use Of this
rifle has saved
.you this day.' Arid
you, too, darling Henry Watson, have
won a stronger lease of your precious
life by presenting me with this splen
did revolving rifle. Six , bulletilfOr six
ruffians ! Miss ono of them ! ah, ,if I
should—there's my knife. No, Leon
ora, you must not miss one of them."
The girl crept stealthily through the
underbrush up the bank to the prairie
above. She knew that to reach the
house the Indians would have to cross
a broad, flat field, where there was no
shelter for their persons. Sho did not
think they would hesitate to do this,
because, having taken the two mon,
they would hardly expect any resis
tance from a single girl. About thir
ty rods to the right of the path a cat
tle yard had been erected by her fath
er, and in the corner of, the fence stood
an immense elm tree. Inside of this
yard climbed Leonora, and behind the
big elm she concealed herself.
A few anxious minutes more prov
ed she was right in her conjecture.—•
The Indians, after having tied stout
rawhide thongs around the feet of
their prisoners, kid theM down in the
bottom of their canoes, strode gaily
and • laughingly along toward the
house, without any attempt at eou
Loonora's heart grew as bard as rJ
stone and her nerves—which fluttered
a little belare—Lnow grow as firm as'
steel. She had put fresh Water:piciof
tinpS upon each nipple of her rifle,, and
putting .the,barrel on the rail of the
fence, drew a sharp ' bead upon the
foremost' Indian hut miler finger cur
