Bcemcd now that nature had no ears. .
' He went again into the deep thickets.
iTlie brushed branches made a noise
'that drowned the sounds of cannons.
IIo walked on, going from obscurity
into .promises of a greater obscurity.
At length he reached a place -where
the high, arching boughs made a
chapel. Ho softly pushed the green
doors aside and entered. Pine needles
were a gentle brown carpet. There
was a religious half-light.
Near the threshold, he stopped hor-Tor-stricken
at the sight of a thing.
He was being looked at by a dead
man who wus seated with his back
against a column-like
Tho corpse was

seen on the side of a dead fish. The
mouth was opened. Its red had changed
to an appalling yellow. Over the gray
skin of the face ran little ants. One
was trundling some sort of a bundlo
.along the upper lip.
The youth gave a shriek as he con
fronted tho thing. lie was, for mo
ments, turned to stone, before it. He
remained staring into the liquid-looking
eyes. Tho dead man and the liv
iug man exchanged a long look. Then
:the youth cautiously put one hand bc-
Diind him and brought it against a
.tree.: ' Leaning upon this, he retreated,
!step by step, with his face still toward
'tho thing.' He feared, that if he turned
his back, the body might spring up and
Stealthily pursue him.
I The branches, pushing against him,
threatened to throw him over it. His
lunguided feet, too, caught aggravat
ingly in brambles. And, with it all,
he received a subtle suggestion to touch
the corpse, As he thought of his hand
lupon it, he shuddered profoundly.
( At ' lost he burst the bounds which
had fastened him to the spot and fled,
unheeding the underbrush. lie was
pursued by a 6ight of the black ants
cwarming greedily upon the gray face
pnd venturing near to tho eyes.
. After a time he paused, and, breath
less and panting, listened, lie imag
ined some strange voico would come
jfrom the dead throat and squawk after
ihim in horrible menaces.
, The trees about the portal of the
chapel moved Blightly in a foft wind.
A sad silence was upon the little guard
j CHAPTER VIII.
! The trees began softly to sing a
Ihymn of twilight. The burnished sun
sank until slanted bronze rays struck
the forest. There was a lull ' in tho
noises of insects as if they had bowed
(their beaks and were making a de
ivotional .pause... There' was silence
save for the chanted chorus of tho
Then, upon this stillness, there sud
denly broke a tremendous clungor of
sounds. A crimson roar came from the
distance. . -
I The youth stopped, no was trans
fixed by this terrific medley of all
tooises. It was as if worlds were being
Tended. Thero was the rippling sound
of mifsketry and the creaking crash of
His mind flew in all directions. He
conceived the two armies to be at each
other panther-fashion. 'Ho listened
for a time. Then he began to run -in
tho direction of the battle. He saw
.that it was an ironical thing for him to
ie running thus toward that which
ho had been at suuh pains to avoid.
JUut he said, in substance, to himself
that If the earth and moon were about
(to clash, many persons would doubtless
plan to get upon roofs to witness tho
I As he ran, he became aware that the
forest had stopped its music, as if at
last becoming capable of hearing tho
foreign' sounds. The trees hushed and
Stood motionless. Everything seemed
jto be, listening to the crackle and
clatter and ear-shaking thunder. The
chorus pealed over the still earth.

that the fight in which he bad been.
was, after all, but perfunctory pop
ping. ' In the hearing of this present
jdln, he was doubtful if he had seen
real battle-socnes, .This uproar eic

tumbling hordes a-struggle in the air,
lie went rapidly on. He wished to
come to the edge of the forest tnat ne

As he hastened, there passed through
his mind pictures of stupendous con
flicts. His accumulated thoughts upon
euoh subjects were used to form scenes.
The noise was as the voice of an elo
quent being, describing.

in the direction of tho fight.

Ho came finally to a road from which
he could see in the distance dark and
agitated bodies of troops, smoke
fringedi In tho lane wus o blood
stained crowd streaming to the rear.
The' wounded men were ' cursing,
groaning and wailing. In tho air, al
ways, was a mighty swell of sound
that it seemed could sway the earth.
With tho courageous words of the ar
tillery and the spiteful sentences of tho
musketry were mingled red cheers. And
from this region of noises camo tho
steady current of tho maimed.
One of the wounded men had a shoe
ful of blood.. He hopped like a school
boy in a game. He was laughing hys
One was swearing that he had been
shot in the arm through the command
ing general's mismanagement of the
Another had the gray seal of death
already upon his face. His lips were
curled in hard lines and his teeth were
clenched. His hands were bloody from
where he hud pressed them upon his
wound. He seemed to be awaiting tho
moment when ho should pitch head
long. Ho stalked like the specter of a
soldier, his eyes burning with the power
of a sture into the unknown.
Thero -were' some who proceeded sul
lenly, full of anger at their wounds
and ready to turn upon anything as an
The youth joined the crowd and
marched along with it. The torn bodies
expressed the awful machinery in
which the men had been entangled.
Orderlies and couriers occasionally
broke through the throng in the road
way, scattering wounded men right and
left, galloping on, followed by howls.
The melancholy march was continual
ly disturbed by the messengers and
sometimes by bustling batteries that
came swinging and thumping down
upon them, the officers shouting orders
to clear the way. ' .
There was a tattered man, fouled with
dust, blood and powder stain from hair
to shoes, who trudged quietly at the
youth's side. He was listening with
eagerness and much humility to tho
lurid descriptions of a .bearded ser
geant. His lean features wore an ex
pression, of awe and admiration. Ho
was like a listener in a country store
to wondrous tales told among tho sugar
barrels. ': He eyed the story-teller with
unspeakable wonder. His mouth was
a-gap in yokel fashion.
The sergeant taking note of this gave
pause to his elaborate history while ks
administered a sardonic comment, "lio
careful, honey, you'll be catching flies,"
The tattered man shrank hack
After a time ho began to sidle near
to the youth and in a diffident way
tried to make him a friend. His voice
was gentle as a girl's voico and his
eyes were 'pleading. Tho youth saw
with surprise" that the soldier had two
wounds, .one in the head, bound
with a blood-soaked rag and the other
in the arm, making that member
dangle like a broken bough
'After they had walked together for
6ome time, tho tattered man mustered
sufficient courage to speak. "Was
pretty pood fight, wasn't it?" he timidly
said. Tho youth, deep in thought,
glanced up at the bloody and grim
figure with its lamb like eyes. "What?'
"Was pretty good fight, wasn't it?"
"Yes," said the youth, shortly. Ho
quickened his pace.
But the other hobbled industriously
' "Was pretty good fight, wasn't it?"
he persisted, in a small voice. And
then he achieved the fortitude to con
.tinue: "Dern ino, if I over see fellers
fight so. Laws, how they did fight.

lie breathed a deep breath of humble
His homely face was suffused with a
light of . love for the army which was
to him all things beautiful and power
After, a time, ho turned to tho youth.
"Where you.hit, old boy?" he asked in
a brotherly tone.
Tho youth felt instant panic at this
question, although at first its full im
port was not borno in upon him.
'"What?" he asked. - '
"Where you hit?" repeated tho tat
tcred man'., ,,- :'.&'
"Why?"' began, tho youth. "I I
that iswhy I " ' " V :
Ho turned away suddenly and slid
through the crowd. His brow wus heuv'
ily flushed, and his fingers were pick'
ing nervously at ono of his buttons.
He bendod his head and fastened his
eyes studiously upon, the button as if
it were a little problem.
The tattered man looked after him
The youth fell back in tho procession
until the tattered soldier was not in
sight. Then ho started to walk on
with others. '
, But ho was amid wounds. Tho mob
of men was bleeding. Because of tho
tattered soldier's question, he now felt
that his shamo could be viewed. He
was continually casting side-long
glances to see if the men were contem
plating the' letters of .' guilt he felt
burned into his brow.
At' times he regarded the wounded
soldiers in an envious way. Ho con
celved persons with torn bodies to be
peculiarly happy. Ho wished that ho

The spectral, soldier was at his side
like' a' stalking reproach. The man's
eyes were still fixed in a stare into the
unknown. His gray,, appalling face
had attracted attention in the crowd,
and men, slowing to his dreary pace,
were walking- with him. They were
discussing his plight, questioning him
and giving him advice. In a dogged
.way he repelled them, signing. to- them
to go on and leave him alone.
' The shadoWs of his face were dcepr
enlng and his tight Hps seemed hold
ing in check the moan of great despair.
There could be seen a certain stiffness
in the movements of his body, as if he
were taking infinite care not to arouse

toward him the youth screamed: .
"Gawd! Jim Conklin!"
The tall soldier made a little, com
monplace smile. "Hello; Flem!" he said.
Tho youth swayed on his legs, and

The youth still lamented. "Oh, Jim
oh, Jim oh, Jim." . , . -;
"Yeh know," said the tall soldier, "I
was out there." Ho made a careful
tfesture. "An', Lord, what a circus.
And, b' jlminy, I got shot I got shot.
Yes, b' jiminy I got shot." He reiter
ated this fact in a bewildered way as
if he did not know how it came about.
Tho youth put forth anxious arms to
assist him, but the tall soldier went
flrnily on as if propelled. Since the
youth's arrival as a guardian for his
friend, tho other wounded men had
peased to display much interest. They
occupied themselves again in dragging
their tragedies toward the rear.
Suddenly, as. the two friends marched
on, the tall soldier seemed to be over
come by a terror. His face turned to a
(emblance of gray paste. He clutched
the youth's arm and looked all about
him, as if dreading to be overheard.
Then he began to speak in a shaking
"I tell yeh what I'm 'fraid of, Flem
I'll tell yeh what I'm 'fraid of. I'm
fraid I'll fall down an' then yeh know
them damned artillery wagons they
like as not '11 run over me. That's what
I'm 'fraid of."
The youth cried out to him hyster
ically: "I'll take care of yeh, Jim. I'll
take care of yeh. I swear to Gawd I
; "Sure will yeh, Flem?" tho tall sol
' "Yes, yes, I tell yeh I'll take core
of yeh, Jim," protested tho youth. He
could not speak accurately because of
the gulping in his throat.
; However, the tall soldier seemed sud
denly to forgot all thoso fears. He bo
came again tho grim, stalking specter
of a soldier. He went stonily forward.
Tho youth wished his friend to lean
upon him, but the other always shook
his head and strangely protested: "No
no leave me be leave me be "
His look was fixed again upon the
unknown. Ho moved with mysterious
purpose. And all of the youth's offers
he brushed aside. "To no leave mo
be leave mo be"
The youth had to follow.
Presently the latter heard a voice
talking softly near his shoulder. Turn
ing, ho saw that it belonged to tho
tattered soldier. "Yc'd better take'im
outa ith' road, pardncr. There's a
bat'try comin' helityvvhoop down th'
road an' he'll git runned over. He's a
goner anyhow in about five minutes
yeh kin see that. Ye'd better take 'im
outa th' road. Where th' blazes does
ho git his stren'th from?"
"Lord knows,!' cried the youth. He
was shaking his hands helplessly.
He ran forward, presently, and
grasped tho tall soldier by the arm.
"Jim, Jim," ho coaxed, "come with

wrench himself free: "Huh," he said,
vacantly. lie stared at tho youth for
a moment. At last he spoke as if dimly
"Oh, inteh th' fields? Oh."
IIo started blindly through the grass.
Tho youth turned oneo to look at tho
lashing- riders und bounding guns of
the battery. He was startled from his
view by a shrill outcry from the tat
"Gawd. He's runnin'." !
Turning his head swiftly, tho youth
saw his friend running in a staggering
and stumbling way toward ,a little

man began a pursuit. Thero was a

The same purposo was in tho tall

way, keeping his eyes fastened on the
mystic place of his intentions. "Xo,

The youth recoiled. "Why, Jim," he
laid, in a dazed way, "what's the mat
