THE FC-RAXTOX TRIBUNE-FRIDAY MORNING. APRIL 20. 1894.
II Sagger 0AHtsajwe n.mm i
i IB Hi
Kenton made no reply tci Steve Bray
ton'a inquiry, but tho latter noticed
look on the young hum's face he bad
novel- seen thete before. Tho Virginian
by adoption bad puiioed the oonne be
thought was right. He had done his
duty under all circumstances and had
been thoroughly loyal to tho cante
which ho espoused. Those besido whom
jo fought had made every attempt to
legrado and disgrace him and drive
Mm out of tho service. If he had not
Mllltedp be would have been called u
traitor and driven uway from his homo
with bodily injury. He had joined tho
ranks to bo suspected und denounced.
As tho cate now stood he could not leave
the southern cause without being re
turned on the rolls as a di setter. If ex
changed, he would bo put on trial, ami
bo realized that enough Influence could
bo brought to beat to further disgrace
"Look ero, Yank, what's bothetin
yo'r head?" asked Steve after a few min
utes of silence.
"A good nianv things'" was tho re
ply. "I've been fierin a bit. Both Cap
tain Wyle and the major aie now down
ou yo'. If yo' ever gits back to the
Confederacy, they'll shot yo' up or
shoot yo'. Can't yo' sue it?"
"It looks that way to msJ."
"The Yauks may keep us six months,
and dourin that time thar's goill to bo
u heap of lyiu about yo' to that gal.
She'll be told that yo' deserted it meb
be that yo' are dead. Yo' kin bet Cap
tain Wyle won't let no grass grow un
der his feet. I've beam that she was
over in the Mountains. "
"And I was told that Captain Wyle
Atiil his critter company had bin sent
back yere to help held the Yaukees.
Can't yo' see';"
' Yts, but I can't act."
"Why not? It's comin on dark, and
it - u in to rain. See how tho line has
traggled ! Them bluecoats, hain't got
uioie'n one eve open. Tell vo' whatujv
plan is. Let's make a dash for it! It
hain't over 30 milee towhar yo'r gal is.
Go'n see her. She's powerful level
beaded, and I leckon sho may give yo'
some good advice. Yo'll hev a show to 1
explain things anyway, and that will
mako dough of the captain's cake."'
"And wha: about you''' asked Ken
ton. "Waal, I'd just as lief run up that
With yo. I ain't jest exactly satisfied
about all this thing. Jlebbo I'll sur
tender to the Yanks agin, and mebbo 1
I'll go back to the company and let
tho major pile it on and bo hanged to
hhnl 1 want a day or two to think it
over. What do yo' say?"
"I'm agreed," replied Kenton after
n moment's thought.
"That's bizness! Jest about 40 reds
down yere I'll give yo' the word. We
uus will hnak for them woods to tho
right. We'll bo fired on and mebbe
killed, but we've got to take chances.
Once we reach the woods we aro safe."
The afternoon was ra idly fading into
dusk, and a fine rain had begun to fall.
The cavalrymen were strung out so that
there were gaps of several feet between
horses, and as tho prisoners were sing
ing songs and seemed in good spirits the
vigilance of tho captor3 was naturally
relaxed. The wall which inclosnl tho
field on the right suddenly ended, and
then came a field which was open be
cause the fencing had been used by sol
diers from one sido or the other for their
campfires. It was a distance of about
30 rods to the edge of tho woods, and
it was likely they would not only bo
fired ou, bat pursued by feoino of the
troopers. Brayton stepped into the road
ahead of Kenton, increased his pare to
reach the conter of a gap between two
horsemen and suddenly threw up his
hand as a Signal.
Both men were well into the Beldand
running at the top of their speed I '
an alarm was raised. Three or four of
the troopers on that side opened fir'
with their carbines, but pursuit was
prevented by a dozen other prisoners
evincing a disposition to also make a
bolt. Some of the half dozen bullets
came unpleasantly ni'ar, but not ono
struck the fugitives, and in two or three
minutes they were safe in the woods.
With darkness already at baud, there
was no fear of pursuit.
"Yank, we uns did that as neat ns a
b'sr backin down a bee tree!" said
Steve as thuy stopped to recover their
breath and shako hands.
"And now what?" seised Kenton.
"Now fur the mountains. Beckon
we'd best put on steam and git out o'
this locality as soon as possible. I know
this ground and will lead the way."
Stopping to rest for a few minutes
every hour or so, tho pair held their
course for the Alleghanies and about '.i
(clock in the morning turned into n
th'cket among tho foothills to lest and
sleep. It was still raining, and tho
night was raw and cold, but they crept
into the thick bushes and were noon fast
asleep. It was H o'clock before thoy
opened their eyes and then only because
disturbed bya great clatter on the high
way only a fow yards distant. Bruyton
was the first to move forward and mako
an Investigation, llo returned in four
or five minutes to say:
"I can't Jest mako 'em out. Tliar'H
about u hundred men, and nil on crit
ters, and tho hull heap are southerners,
but only . fow aro in uniform. They
cau't be recruits goin to the army, be
cause they are goin the wrong way."
"It may bo a Confederate raiding or
scouting party," suggested Kenton.
'Mebbe so, but wo uus don't want
imthiu to do with 'em. Hang mo if
they hain't a bilious luokin lot!"
The fugitives waited for a quarter of

to rat there. In a few words they agreed
on the story they were to tell if ques
tioned, and 10 minutes later they were
nt tho door of the house. It wus opened
to them by the farmer's wife. She was
a strong advocate of the southern cause,
and the sight or their Confederate uni
forms brought a cheerful invitation to
enter and sit down to bioakfast,
"Don't you una belong with that
crowd which jest passed up tho rond'r"
she asked as they tell to catim:,
Steve Bray ton took it upon himself to
answer in the negative and then asked
what crowd it was.
"It's Kuruel Mosby and his gang.

Ereakiaot had been finished when
there cumo a knock at the door, and
next momenta mauiu the uniform of a
Confederate cavalry sergeant entered
the cabin. He had been sent back by
Colonel Jlosby, he said, to ask for the
loan of a horse and equipments. He
used the term " loan, " but it was pretty
plain that ho meant to tako no refusal.
The woman replied that her husband
bad set o it for Woodstock the night be
fore on horseback; and therefore it was
impossible to gTant the colonel's re
quest. The sergeant was going away
without a word to our two friends, but
after reaching his horso ho returned
"Wl.at command do you fellers be
"To Captain Wylo's cavalry com
pany," replied Kenton.
"Where is it?"
"I don't know."
"Humph! Whar yo' goin?"
"Xono of yo'r bimetal" answered
Steve, who bad been roiled by the ser
gent's supercilious airs and lofty tono.
"Oh, it hnin'. oh? Mebbe yo'vogot
a pa:-s in yo'r pocket to allow of yo'r
rambling around the kentry? If so, I'll
take a look at it."
"Yo" hain't big enough!"
"What! Now you uns either show a
pass, nr I'll take yo' along to Knrnel
Mosby! He'll mighty soon find out whar
"You see," began Kenton, who, re
alize that it was foolish to arouse tho
nan's anger and suspicion, "we were
guarding tho stores at Harrisonburg,
and the Federal cavalry came in yes
"VVhar's yo'r pass?" interrupted the
"Whar's yo'rB?" demanded Steve.
"Show yo'r pass, or I'll take yo' to
"I should liko to explain the case to
you," said Kenton, motioning toStevo
not to interrupt him. " Wo are Confed
erate Soldiers, We were captured at
Harrisonburg by the Federals yesterday
forenoon, but escaped at dark last night.
Therefore wo bavo no pass and do not
need a pass."
"Yo' may bo all right, and yo' may
be Oonple of Yankee spies!" replied
tho sergeant. "If yo' are straight, yo'll
come along with mo and explain to the
kurnel. 'Deed, but yo'vo got to come,
straight or crooked !"
He bad left his revolver and carbine
on the saddle. Ho started for bis hoise,
but Steve was there betora bim. He
bad stepped softly out whiM Kenton
was explaining and was now in posses
sum of both firearms and a supply of
ammunition. Even as the trooper
reached the gate Steve gave his borne a
slap and sent bim galloping away and
then turned and asked:
"Who's takin anybody toscetho knr
nel? Sorter 'pears to me that yo'vo dun
stubbed yo'r too and fell down!"
Tho Sergeant very quietly asked what
he wus going to do, and bis manner bo

"(Join to git sbct of yo' about the
fnjt thing!" answered Stove. "Left

down tho road till yo' find tho kuruel
and then give him our love!"
Tho trooper marched away without
a backward look, and when ho was lost
to sight by n turn in the road Konton
"Steve, you did n bad (hing for us.
That whole crowd will bo after us in

"Dou't holler befo' yo'r bit, Yank!"
laughed Steve. "If wo uns hadn't tooken

fact that Turner had put a touch on my

"And did the great Turner really touch
upon it, SS you .say?"
"Yes, he did."
"Then the picture in mine."
''But you have not seen it!'' remarked.
"No matter. Turner would never have
