THE SCHANTON TRIBUNE THURSDAY MORNING. APRIL 26. iSM.
TJncla Ben returned to the honso at (
mitluiK'it nnd found Marian tnsiously
waiting for ncvs. Kojal Kenton hud
told him wbat to tell her, and while sho i
was comforted in one direction she was i
frightened in another. If Kenton mid
Braj'ton had been followed over the j
mountains and blood bad lieen t bJ. j
would the pursuit cease until they had I
br.'a hunted down? If th man whom J
Unci? Bun bad struck down in the dark
ness was Ike Bastor, wouldn't bis In- j
formation bring Captain Wylo and his '
company iuto the uoigbborhcod at oneef !
Provided it was not Ike Buster at all, it
:artainly was an enemy of some sort,
oho would demand revenge. The out- !
.ogk was indeed an anxious one, but
ibey could only wait and hope.
It was well for the raothM that Ehe I
was too ill to realize that anythiiisf un-:
utnal wub happen) ag. The 40ctor had I
exercised his skill to no benefit, and .
liiouph permitting Msriau to hope that
favorable change ttiigbt occur he re- .
aliced that the chances of recovery were J
veiy remote. All that looj night ehe .
lay as one Bleeping heavily, and but for j
the many distractions the daughter
would have noticed that the change was j
for the wone.
Neither JWitunir I uelt Ban bad
reason to suspect that Mrs. Baxter hud
eeu or heard iitiytiuug (hut niht, but t
t-he must scon know all. The girl had i
dWeimitiwtl that Kvuion ahuuld be 1
brought to tbe house mid cnrd tur. The
thought of his rude shelter, wounded
and lufferiug as he WM on that cold i
winter's night, alrooet drove her wild,
it was hardly 7 o'clock in the morning.
aud she bad lin.i.'ly tasted breakfast,
when she wtnt out to Curie Ben and !
"1 am ready to go iu.. cajfM wait ;ui
other minute. We will tekt Mjm more
provision!, but 1 :. ill have Mr. Kenton ,
biought to the bmise. "
"What a dm! dut wotnaur" he aaked.
"1 don t eare fci her. If she doesn't
Uke bis being hero, she can go."
"Jest look Into hrr room, Miss J"on-'
Tbe door was ajar, while the w. men
betself was at the other non . There
was a bloody towel on a chair, bloody
water in a washbowl. uota of bloo on
a chair and on the floor.
"It looks as if some Ofif bad soucbt to
mnrder her!" exelainjed Marian as she
looked about in astonstBtnent.

a noise bout daylight, uu I reckon dat

"I'm glad you didn't kill him but I
expect Mrs. Baxter will now feel like
taking revesjge open the whole house
hold. Let us be going."
Half un hour later they were chal
lenged by Stove Brayton, who had al
ready prepared breakfast for tbo wound
td man and was able to report that Ken
ton hsd.passed a comparatively cotafcrt
nble night. Ha tnut them just outside
tbe camp, and with a wink to Uncle
Ben he said to Marian.

"Xntbin, yo' eld son of Africa!" an
swered Steve. "Don't yo' nu know

Ben then t Id bun of th djMOVMfM
made at tbe home and of his belli f that
his victim was Ike Bailor, and Stave
looked vary serious as he replied:
"Thenyo' kin bet we sr'ln fnr a red
hot time! Ike Baxter will be back befo'
nootj with a gang at hi huels, and the
chances ar' that ibme'body will git
At this moment Marian called to
them, and as they entered the camp thoy
found her dressing Kenton's wound and
preparing fur bis Immediate removal to
the boose. While tbe raiding party had

thould he brought to the home.
cone of the vehicles had been taken,
and she argued that it would be easy
for the two men to get Kenton down to
the road and then convey him to tbe
bouBe in one of the carriages. Ho looked
upon tbe plan favorably, but when she
turned to Steve Brayton be said:
"Beg pardon, mias, but I can't agree
with yo'. Tero ar' the situation: Over
(liar on the other road yisterday inawn
in wo una wak looken fur Yankee spies. .
Ho tin's a Yank straight 'nuff. but not
a spy, while I'm n pnrty good rebel, as
tho t'other side calls us. We tins had u
fuss with a iool of a Confederate, and

it wasn't over two miles awuv thai I

give it up without knowin who we ar'
and all about us. We uns will hear
from them today fnr shore. Then thar
is Iks Baxter to look Otit foT. Pity yo'r
ni gger didn't strike a lectio harder and
finish him, but it seems that Ike got
away. He un w;w probably sent to Spy
on yo', and yo' kin bet that Captain
Wyle and hisoiiitor Company hain't fur
off. we shall also hear from them boto'
the day's over."
"Well, suppose wo do?" asked Mfl
ri.iri. "Mr. Kenton bus been true and
loyal to Virginia and tho south. lit is
here in Confederate uniform and has
only escaped from tho Fedorals after be
ing taken prisoner In unother battle.
Suppose the Confederates do comeii"
That's yo'r way of lookin at it. Miss
Percy." said Steve as he twirled bis but
in hishands. "My way is a leotle differ
ent. Captain Wvle. Iko Baxter and the
ret of tho crowd want revenge, If they
tind Mr, Kenton in yo r house, they'll
take him out and carry him oil to some
csinp. They'll us him ronah. They'll
make charges. They 'll stick right to
bun till they lk v his life. I'm not fig
gerin ou myself 'tall. If they don't
shoot me offhand, I'll git court uinr
tialed and be chained up sumwbar till
the arg) of tbe war. Fact is, Miss Per
es , I've ji --it about dun cut loose from
this glorious old southern confederacy
and gone over to the Yanks!"
"Tbtu wbat would you udviae?"
"Leave he un right yeie fur awhile.
We uus' got two guns and a revolver,
and if the crowd comes we kin stnnd
'em off a good deal better ttjau at the
bouse. Meanwhile let Uncle Ben sot out
down the valley to find the Yankee s1
di r in ! tell em whit's up. If 'nuff
of 'am cum, and they cum iu time, we
will be all right. If not, we might as
well ?ty onr prayers!"
i:otu Marian and Kenton realized the
litnaMon as ho presented it, and within
five minutes L'ncle Ben bad his instruc
tions. It was believed that he would
run aeroes Federal cavalry within 10
miles ef Rest Haven. He was to ask for
General Custer, and if he found that
commander toa-khim in the name of
tbe Pen j i to come at once. He was to

that Msriuii would lie home within an

with a message to Mrs. Baiter, but on
his arrival at tbe houee hefailed to tind
ber. Entering her room in tbe "quar
ters" in bis search, be found things in
such disorder that b'jj It certain she
had packed up r fen articles and tied
from tbe place. Under no other circum
stances would he have dared to look
into the Udroom of tue "missu" in the
other QOOa. Alarmed nt the thought
that eh helpless and abandoned, he
ventured to intrude. She was lying with
her tare toward him. and the first glance
brought a maun to his hps. He called to

TTiere is no ert'ile in the modern wom

They comprise every phase of Nature's changes, as de
lineated in the four seasons, and will prove a revelation to
most persons, of hr peculiar moods. Lowell has well said:
"Our seasons have no fixed returns;
Without our will they come an l go;
At noon our sudden summer burns,
Kre sunset all h snow.''
The Ottman Litliorapliing Company in reproducing these
paintings from the originals, has achieved a marked success,
and produced tour pictures that will easily hold hrst place in
either home or studio, not only for their artistic merit, but as
fine examples of the work of this renowned artist
This deliglitful picture i-; one cf Mcdairy's fou. water colon, "The Seasons," which
are all found in portfolio No. 2 of thi3 Series.
Spring" is a bright -colored work of singular merit. The drooping apple trees,
burdened with their pinlc and white bloom, contrast effectively with the rich green back
ground of trees and the dag-fringed pool in front.
The light and shades are superlative, and the whole effee'e is wondrously pleasing
as a picture, or when critically considered as a study.
