lovely old lady always knows how to make
a picture of herself, by a profusion of soft
IBM and teuder greys. She shades her white

Such an aged woman is in perfect harmony
with her years, and she affects all OUrSCDSeS
pleasantly, she never muses criticism and
dislike, as do those bowigged, befrlnlod,
painted wrecks, whose grasp on'alife that

lovely old lady is wise enough to renounce

shared by all bis associates.
We bad hardly completed our defence,

A chorUS ol shrill yells, and the whiz of

the other side of the canon, which was about
two hundred b et ac ross, and, as it seemed to
us. entirely impassable for man or horse.
Th" boy was right as to the place where we
could be found, but knowing nothing about
the canon he wus not prepared for It.
"Thank the saints!" eried the guide as he
piously crossed his breast, "that the boy is
on tile other side !"

After three months hard Work, we reached
tho northern spurs of the Sun Francisco
mountains in Arizona, and here, for the first
tune, the recently extinguished flres told us
wo were in the vicinity of th" ApOObOS, whom
we were so eager to avoid. After that euir
sleep was not so peaceful us it had been.
Judging from the signs our guide thought
there were at least two hundred people in the
Apache band near by. and he frankly told us
that it would go hard with our little party, if
(he Indians attacked us with all .'heir force.
The nearest point from Which we could get
assistance was Fort Whipple, ninety miles to
the South, the intervening country being
hilly and cut up by deep, dry canons.

After a wait that was painfully long, we
saw a flash across the canon, followed by the
sharp crack of the rifle, and aloud or in their
boarts nil the listeners fervently thanked
Heaven that the boy was over.
