THE SCKATiTTOtt TKTBTJXE-WEDNESDAY MOBNING. APRIL 25. 189
1 As was stntcd in a previous chapter,
nptaiu Wyle'a company, along With
triors, bad been returned to tin.' valli y
ml placed under tbe oxden of General
ainlxxlcu. Ike Baxter ntul lln other.!
ttptarcd at Kemstown bad rejoined the
company when exchanged. Ike felt
morn than ever that Rovnl Kenton was
n enemy he must get vid of, and Cap
tain Wym eneourni.M tins Veenm: in
arion ways, tbongh never openly and I
directly committing himself. On two
occasions Ike had been granted h ave of
absence tu visit his wife. Both times
ao had met her aeoietly.
The spirit which animated this hum- 1
hie twain will surprise only those who
have never tin countered the "poor
whites ' of the south. Kino oot i ( ten
of the bloody and lor.;: continued feuds
wo read of in southern commnuities i
begin among the poor and Ignorant
The cause is generally of trifling char-,
ncter. The "poor white" may be hum- 1
bled by the lav;, hut outside uf Iho
courtroom ho hates with an intensity
hard to realize. He is persistent, cun
ning, merciless. Ike Baxter had never
bad an ambition in his life up to the
hour he enlisted. Bo could barely read
mid write, was naturally laiy and in
different nnd felt no pride In anything
except the fact that he was "bettl r than
aui'gir." When he found that cor
porals and sergeants were looked up to
and respected, there came a queer feel
ing in his heart, He could not credit
it at first, but Captain Wylo aided him
in his mental struggle. The day came
when Ike had an ambition and a burn
ing desire. It was in be a corporal or
sergeant. In his wild dreamt of glory
he did net stop there. He determined
to go higher and become lieutenant or
captain. As BOOU as ho was given to
understand that Royal Kenton stood in
his way it w.is but natural with one of i
hie nature to dett-ruiino to remove the
obstacle by any meant possible.
Before the war the "Yankee," both
as a man and as the representative of a
lection of the republic, had few friends
In the South, lie was supposed t'l bo
hostile to ::11 southern "inititutii us."
Tbe more ignorant the loatbi rner the
mere heartily he hated and despised tbe
citizen of the north. He beliered what
the fire eating politicians pretended t"
believe and often asserted. Tbe John
Brown raid upon slavery in Virginia
ami tbe events in "Bleeding Kansas"
served to intensify the teeth aal hate f
the "poor whites." Thus it v.;,- that
Ike Baxter, picking up his crumbs of
history and bis bits of information on
current events at tbe doors of the llv ry
stable or r und thest. ve of the bar

pion in the matter of Yankee bating. If
Kenton bod not stood between bim and
military glory, he would still have I:
a tritterneej toward him as a nan I irn
in the imrlri. Uncle Hen's cautious ap
proach to the Iiouhj r.n thi1 niglit hail
reference only to Mrs. Baxter, There
was another man stealing through tbe
darkness and making a noi eless ap
proach at the some time Ike Baxter,
Neither Cw-le Ben nor Harlan Percy
caught x sight of bim, bnt ho noticed
their every movement and drew his own
conclusions, Tho gun which tlw old
roan bad lien ttld to secure within Ins
romn in the little boose. Be bad de
parted frt.m Best Haven without being
seen or bis absence noted by tbe wom
an, but hi- return trotUMM) her, and her
sharp eyi were upon him at he can li 1
away the firearm and loaded himself
With tbe bundles Marian had prepared
and brought to the door, Bhewaa ilr st
ing to follow bim as he disappeared ;
down tho highway, having u dim to1
picion of tho itnto i f affair, when Ike
knocked nl her window and wasadmit
ted. In lest than a minata he had re
latnd what h aw nuNid", ..vi . 1 id
told him of Uncle Don taking the gun.
"Whar's lie un bound fnr'r" queried
"Dunno, but Runthiu's happened tum
v.'har! Yo' must toiler him I"
"Has that Yankee bin yere?"
"No, but the gal's beam news, fur
shore! Reckon he' on may bo Ivin out
around yere tnmwbar, and the nigger's
WKin out rutin in him: wit right urter
bo un, Ike, and iffyo' Hud the Yankee
go'u tell Captain Wylo nnd hev him
cum with his critter company!"
"I'll do better's that!" grimly te-
piled t!m lriMi a- he i-tepp il out into
fh.illtr.ht. "If 1 lle.d Hi.il Vnntran nvnnml
Vers,, I'll not t bullet Into him fust and
tell Captain Wylo next!"
Uncle Ben had only a few hundred
yards tho ttart, and tho man on bit
trail soon li stened tho distance until be
could hear the old man's footsteps and
malto out a shadowy form through the
darkness. Tb re si Sffli d nothing more
certain than that he would follow on
nnd uncover the hiding pilot of the fu
gitives. For nnnrly throe -qnarttri of a
milo tho slavo messenger had but one
idea to return b. Stevo Brsyton at fast
ns potubl. Ho wot hurrying along
when a sudden thought flashed through
his brain, and ho instinctively stepped
anidu and halted to listen.
"How do 1 know but what tint wom
an dun heard rr.e irit de
ll 1. rin mnV hi. .t'h-.ru.r.i 1 .. I.; -.Iff

"tilio'd do !t! She's powerful wicked,
the am! An mebbo tome mo1 of dan
gorillat am waitin long yero to grub me
an giv mo iinodder whlpplnl"
Ho whb lietenlng as well as whisper
ing, and nil. r a minute he heard the
sounds of footsteps coming down tho
road. He drew back into the deeper
tmcJUw of tho high bank, dropped his
bundles, nnd taking n firm grip of his
grin be mentally resolved to make a
tight for it if ho was ovorbauled by tho
tamo crowd as before. A few seconds
lrter bo realized that only one person
was approaching. The footfalls were
too heavy for a woman. Ho had just
decided thin point when r man loomed
jp in the darkness boforobim and halt
jd almost within arm's length to inut-
"Drat my hido, but has that ole nig
ger left tho road an giv me tho tlip'r I
' rrivatruTrn Mi dv turUn'AM Mill ATiSOC r ATtOM
heard he tin only a minit ago, but him'B
dun gone now!"
It was Ike Baxter of course. Ho stood
pe ring and listening for hnlf u minute
and then growled l
"Iorter hev run ho un right down
nn made bim show ino the way! Now
the cussed Yankee may git away from
me! No, he won't though! I'll hunt
over every loot of this country but what
I'll find him an hev his scalp!"
Uncle Ben did not recognize the man
at all, as it had been many months
since ho had heard Ike Baxter's voice.
It Wat Inttantly plain to bim, however,
that the man was a determined enemy
and was seeking Royal Kenton's life.
Ike leoi; three or four steps forward and
stopped again to listen. Noiselessly
an I with such a teeiimras he hud never
1 experienced before 1 nele Ben clnbbf
' his gun, took one silent step forward
Ultett I" n i tubbtd his ijun,
and text instant brought tbe heavy
stock down upon Ike's head and felled
hini i'i the earth. The man sank down
witbont a cry or groan, and after wait
ing half a minute thu old man gasped
"May de good Lawd dun forgive me.
but I had to do it fur Miss Sunshine's
He picked up bis bundles and hus
tened on lAd le minutes later was tell
ing Steve Brsyton what bad happened,
"Glad . f it!" replied the latter.
"Reckon I orter go op thar and make
shore he's doad, for I sorter think his
nane are Ike Baxter, Hain't got no
tiaie, though not jest now. This way,
They passed between two great bowl
den which had fallen from the bank
above, followed a ravine Into the lulls
for about 800 feet, and after a climb up
the right hand bank found the biding
place uiuong the rooks, There was a
small fire burning agaiastagreat bowl
der, oiid on a l ed of h aves and branch'
s lay Royal Kent.n with a ballet
woand in 1 1 1 - calf of the right leg. it
Was a bit of giied lurk for him in tie'
midstof adversity that the bullet had
passed clear through without teaching
tic b ne. It was a painful and tem
porarily disabling woand, ami he hud
li t much of ins strength before the
bleeding COUld be ( becked, but lie was
inclined to make light i t the situation
as Brsyton and Uncle Ben appeared.
Thu aid darky knew Kenton only by I
sight, but the sight of bim lying thercj
in that helpli .-- condition was a call for !
him to throw himielf d jwn on his knees
and moan out:
"Fo'deLawd nn fo'de Lawd. but
what a:.i Mi-aSiinshino gwino t say an
do when Fiie knows dat he has bin
shotted wnl U ih-.'.en bum'oshi lis':"
Kent ii d m. ale tic situation plain
to him. and tie n at the two talk d tl out
alfairs at the house Steve Jlrayton
washed nnd bound up thu wi.nnd afresh,
made uji a comfortable bedi arranged
one of tbt blankets for a shelter and
taw that Kmlon ate as well as talked.
The ad ventare which Unclt Ben iiud On
tlie road WOI ft It to be uuuthot DMUOS
tol ' guarded against. After having
the house where they had takeu bresk
i and encountered the Confadorate
sergeant, they hud hastened up tho side
of the mountain and headed direct foe
Rent I lav o, Within an hour they found 1
that n nombttOf men who on their I
trail, and two or three tfmi s during the '
day they wero ol ligcii to hide them
selves for an hour or two. No shots
W i" exobang i until about "i o'clotk In '
the evening, and tb. n they were fin d j
upon by three men fa Smbasb, KtOl n
vms bit nnd fell, hut ho struggled up i
and made a run of it, with Stevn Bray-
inn oovsring Ins retreat, l'ain ami loss
of blood finally broaght the wounded
man down again, and he appealed In
Bt ve to leaVS him and maku his own
"Couldn't (hint Of it, Yank couldn't
possibly play any lich dirt on u man
who hot lout 'lougnidtt o' me so often!"
was Ihe hearty reply. "Thnr wss only

olf than yo' ur'! 1 hain't been shoutin
live ot six times jest lur tho fun of it!
If yo' cuil't walk, yo've got to be cur
ried!" Heeding none of Kenton's protests, tlie
faithful fellow got him on his back and
picked his route through scrubs and over
rocks until he reached tho spot where
Uncle lien found them. Ho knew it was
within a mile ur two of Rest Iiuveu,
and ho was about starting for tho houso
when the old man came along.
"I'll taku a trot up the road uud aeo
how tho nigger'v dead man Is, "said
Stove wlion ho cotild do no more for
Kenton. "It's my eveilnstin opinyun
that tho chap will turn out to be Ike
Baxter, und I F.hau't Ixi overly sorry if
?ich ur' tho case. I'll hev to git tho
body outer tho way anyhow, belo' uny
body stumbles over It."
In thoooursoef l!0 minutes ho reaohed
tho spot, but no man, living or dead,
was to bo found. Ho imido a thorough
hunt, but nothing could bo discovered.

contains four incomparable paintings by the world-famous
Medairy, which surpass all of his previous efforts for faithful
ness to nature and unparalleled beauty.
They comprise every phase of Nature's changes, as de
lineated in the four seasons, and will prove a revelation to
most persons, of her peculiar moods. Lowell has well said)
"Our seasons have no fixed returns;
Without our will they come and go;
At noon our sudden summer burns,
lire sunset all ii snow.''
The Ottman Lithographing Company in reproducing these
paintings from the originals, has achieved a marked success,
and produced tour pictures that will easily hold first place in
either home or studio, not only lor their artistic merit, but as
fine examples of the work of this renowned artist
Tills delifrluful picture is one of Medalry'9 four water colon, "The Seaijons." which
arc all found in portfolio No. 9 of this Series.
' Spring" is a bright-colored work of singular merit. The drooping apple trees,
burdened with their pink and white bloom, contrast effectively with the rich green back
ground of trees and the flag fringed pool in front.
The light and shades are superlative, and the whole effect is wondrously pleasing
as a picture, or when critically considered as a study.
