'"' Tho tattered man stood musing.

little awe-struck voice. A retrUar jim

of tho docile hands with his foot. "I

Ja rcg'lar jim-dandy."
, The youth desired to screech out his
Iprief. Ila was stabbed. Hut hia
tongue lay dead in tho tomb of his
jiuouth. lie threw himself ngain upon
ithe ground and began to brood.
J Tho tattered man stood musing,
i "Look a here, tpardner," ho said,
'after a time. lie regarded tho corpse
jas he spoke. "lie's up an' gone, aint
e, an' wo might as well begin t' look
out ferol' number one."
The youth, awakened by tho tat
tered soldier's tone, looked quickly up.
He saw that ho was7 swinging uncer
tainly on his legs and that his face had
.turned to a shade of blue.
I "Good Lord," he cried, in fear, "you
ftin't going to not you too.
The tattered man waved his hand.
"Xary die," ho said. "All I want is
some pea-soup an' a good bed. Some
:pea-soup," he repeated dreamfully.
The youth arose from the ground.
"I wonder whero ho came from. I left
ihim over there!" llo pointed. "And
'now I find 'im here. And ho was com

cated a new direction. They both
'turned toward the body as if to in
j "Well." at length spoke the tattered
'man, "there ain't no uso in our stayin'
Ihere an' tryin' t' ask him anything."
The youth nodded an assent, wearily.
jThcy both turned to gaze for a moment
at the corpse.
The youth murmured something.
"Well, he was a jim-dandy, wan't
'e?" said the tattered man as if in re
sponse. They turned their backs upon it and
started away. For a time, they stole
softly, treading with their toes. It re
mained, laughing there in the grass.
"I'm commencin' t' feel pretty bad,"
ieaid tho tattered man suddenly break
ling one of his little silences. "I'm
icommencin' t' feel pretty damn bad."
I The youth groaned. "Oh, Lord."
IWasheto be the witness of another
But his companion waved his hand
(reassuringly. "Oh, I'm not goin' t' die

jdier continued to talk. "Besides, if I
died, I wouldn't dio th' way that feller
did. That was th' funniest thing. I'd
jest flop down, I would. I never seen
a feller die th' way that feller did."
Then he mado a calm announcement:
"There's two of 'em, llttlo ones, but
they're beginnln' to have fun with me
now. I don't believe I kin walk much
They went slowly on in silence.
"Yeh look pretty peeked yerself," said
the tattered man, at last. "I bet yeh've
I got a "-worser one than yeh think.
Where is it located?" But he continued
jto harangue vaguely without waiting
:for a reply.
( The youth had been wriggling 6lnce
the other had begun to speak of
wounds. He now gave a cry of exas
jperation and made a furious motion
with his hand. "Oh, don't bother me,"
'he said. "Now, don't bother me," he
Irepeated, with desperate menace.
' "Well, Lord knows I don't wanta
ibothcr- anybody," said the tattered
iinan. There was a little accent of de
spair in his voice as ho replied. "Lord
knows I've gota 'nough in' own t' 'tend
The youth, who had been holding a
jbitter debate with himself and casting
jglanccs of hate and contempt at the
jtattcred man, here spoke in a hard
jToice. "Good-by," he said.
) The tattered man looked at hlra in
igaplng amazement. "Why why,
jpardner, where yeh goin'?" ho asked,
(unsteadily. Tho youth looked at him,
icould see that he, too, like the other
one, was beginning to act dumb and
animal-like. His thoughts seemed to
be floundering about in his head.
"Now now look here you now. I
won't have this this here won't do.
Where where yeh goin'?"
1 Tho youth pointed vaguely. "Over
there," ho replied.
I "Well, now, look-a-horc now," 6aid

"Look-a-here, now now it ain't"
The youth went on. Turning at a

dcriug about helplessly In the fluids.
He became aware that the furnace'

ftliut the roadway was now a crying
mass of wagons, teams and men. From
the heaving tangle issued exhortations,
commands, imprecations. Fear was
aweejiing it all along. The cracking

musket stocks. They prodded tecm
sters, indifferent to ell howls. Tho
men forced their way through parts of
the dense mass by strength. The blunt
head of the column pushed. The rav
ing tcuinstars swore many strange
As the youth looked at the regi
ments, tho black weight of his woe re
turned to him. Ho felt that he was re
garding a procession of chosen beings.
The separation was ns great to him as
if they had marched with weapons of
flame und banners of sunlight. He
could never bo like them, lie could
have wept in his longings.
He discovered that ho had a scorch
ing thirst. His face was so dry and
grimy that lie thought he could feel
his bkin crackle. Lack boue of his
body had an acho in it and seemingly
threatened to break with each moment.
His feet were like two sores. Also, his
body was calling for food. It was more
powerful than a direct hunger. There
was a dull, weight-like feeling in his
stomach, and when he tried to walk
his head swayed and ho tottered. Ho
could not see with distinctness. Small
patches of crimson mist floated beforo
his vision. Wliilo ho had been tosseu
by many emotions ' he had not been
aware of ailments. Now they beset
him and made clamor.
A -certain moth-like quality within
him kept him in tho vicinity of the bat
tles. Ho had a great desire to see, and
to get news. He wished to know who
The column that had butted stoutly
at tho obstacles in tho roadway was
barely out of tho youth's sight before
lie saw dark waves of men come sweep
ing out of the woods anddown through
the fields. He knew at once that the
,steel fibers had been washed from their
hearts. They were bursting from their
coats and their equipments ns from en
'tanglements. They oharged down upon
him like terrified buffaloes.
Behind them blue smoke curled and
clouded above the tree-tops and through
the thickets he could sometimes see a
distant pink glare. The voices of the
cannon were clamoring in interminable
CTho youth was horror-stricken. He
stared in agony and amazement.
The fight was lost. The dragons
were coming with invincible strides.
The army, helpless in tho matted
thickets, and blinded by the overhang
ing night, was going to bo swallowed.
War, tho red animal, war, tho blood
swollen god, would have bloated fill.
Within him, something bado to cry
out. lie had the impulse to make a
rallying speech, to sing a battle hymn
but ho could only get his tongue tc
call into the air: 'Why why what
what's th' matter?"
Soon he was in the midst of them.
They were leaping and scampering all
about him. Their blanched faces shone
In tho dusk.
The youth turned from one to
another of them as they galloped
along. Uis incoherent questions were
lost. They were heedless of his ap
peals. They did not seem to see him.
They sometimes gabbled insanely. One
huge man was asking of the sky: "Say,
where de plank road? Whero de plank
road?" It was as if he had lost a child.
He wept in his pain and dismay.
i iresenuy, men were running miner
and thither in all ways. The artillery
booming, forward, rearward, and on
the flanks mado jumblo of ideas of di
rection. Landmarks had vanished into
the gathered gloom. The youth began
to imagine that he had gotten into the
center of tho tremendous quarrel and
he could perceive no way out of it
From the mouths of the fleeing men
came a thousand wild questions, but no
ono made answers.
The youth after rushing about and
throwing interrogations at the heed
less bands of retreating infantry,
finally clutched a man by the arm.
They swung around face to face.
"Why why " stammered the youth,
struggling with his balky tongue.
Tho man screamed: "Let go me!
Let go me." His face was livid and his
eyes were rolling uncontrolled. He
was heaving and panting. He still
grasped his rifle, perhaps having for
gotten to release his hold upon it. He
tugged frantically and the youth being
compelled to lean forwurd was dragged
"Let go mel Let go me."
"Why why " stuttered tho youth.
"Well, then " bawled the man in a
lurid rage. He adroitly and fiercely
swung his rifle. It crushed upon the
youth's haul. The man ran on.
Tho youth's fingers had turned to

Sometimes, ho would nchieve a posl

a moment, and then fall again, grub

clammy pallor.' Deep groans were
wrenched from him.

At last,' with a twisting movement,
Le got upon his hands und knees and
from thence, like a babe trying to
walk, to his feet Pressing his hands
to his temples, ho wont lurching over
He fought an intense battle with his
body. His dulled senses wished him
to swoon and he opposed them stub
bornly, his mind portraying unknown
dangers and mutilations if he should
fall upon the field. Ho went in tall
soldier fashion. Ho imagined secluded
spots where he could fall and be unmo
lested. To reach oho, ho strove against
tho tide of his pain.
Once, he put his hand to tho top of
his head and timidly touched the
wound. The scratching pain of the
contact made him draw a long breath
through his clenched teeth. His
ilngcrs were dabbled with blood. ' He
regarded thenvwlth a fixed stare.
Around him, he could hear the
grumble of jolted cannon as the scur
rying horses were lashed toward the
front Once, a young officer on a be'
splashed charger nearly ran him (Jpwn,,
He turned cad watched the mass of
guns, men and horses sweeping in c

Tho officer v.a3niakinge::cited motions

Somo officers' of tho scattered infan

There was amighty altercation.
Tho artillery were assembling aa if
for a conference.
The blue haze of evening was upon
tho fields. The lines of forest were,
long purple shadows. One cloud lay
ulong the western sky partly smother
ing the red.
As tho youth left tho scene behind
him, he heard the guns suddenly Tour
out. Ho imagined them slinking in
black rage. They belched and roared
like brass devils cuarding a gate. The
soft uir was filled with the tremendous
remonstrance. With it camo the shat
tering peal of opposing infantry. Turn
ing to look behind him, ho could fee
sheets of orange light illumine tho
shadowy distance. There were subtle
and sudden lightnings in tho far air.
At times he thought he could sec hcav-
ing masses of men.

had faded until he could barely distin
guish places for his feet. The purple
darkness was filled with men who lee
tured und jabbered. Sometimes he
could sco them gesticulating against
the somber sky. There seemed to bo a
great ruck of men and munitions
spread about in the forests nrd in tho
fields. Tho little, narrow roadway now
lay lifeless. There wero overturned
wagons like sun-dried bowlders. The
bed of tho former torrent was choked
with tho bodies of horses und splintered
parts of war machines.
It had come to pass that his wound
pained him but little. Ho, was afraid
to move rapidly, however, for a dread
of disturbing it. He held his head
very still and took many precautions
against stumbling. He was filled with
anxiety, and his face was piuched and
drawn in anticipation of tho pain of
any sudden mistako of his feet in the
His thoughts, as ho walked, fixed
intently npon his hurt. There was
a cool, liquid feeling about it and he
imagined blood moving slowly down
under his hair. His head seemed swol
len to a size that made him think his
neck to be inadequate. v
The new 6ilcnce of his wound mado
much worriment. The little, blister
ing voices of pain, that had called out
from his scalp, were, ho-thought, defi
nite in their expression of danger. By
them, he believed he could measure his
plight. Hut when they remained
ominously silent, he became frightened
and imagined terrible fingers that
clutched into his brain.
Ho held continuous arguments ns to
whether he should lie down and sleep
at some near spot, or force himself on
until ho reached a certain haven. Ho
Often tried to dismiss the question, but
his body persisted In rebellion and his
senses nagged at him like pampered
At last he heard a cheery voice near
his shoulder: "Yeh scum t' bo in a
pretty bad way, boy?"
Tho youth did not look up, but he as
sented, with thick tongue:. "Uh."
The owner of tho cheery voice took
him firmly by the arm. "Well," ho
said, with a round laugh, "I'm goin'
your way. Th' hull garlg is goin' your
way. An' I guess I kin give yeh a
lift." They began to walk like a
drunken man and his friend.
As they went along, the man ques
tioned the youth and assisted him with
tho replies like one manipulating the
mind of a child.
In tho search which followed ho
seemed to possess a wand of a magic
kind. He threaded the mazes of the tan
gled forests with a strange fortune. In
encounters with guards and patrols he
displayed the keenness of a detective
and tho valor of a gamin. Obstacles
fell before him and became of assist
ance. The youth, with his chin still
on his breast, stood woodenly near
while his companion beat ways and
means out of sullen things.
The forest seemed a vast hive of men
buzzing about in frantic circles, but
tho cheery man conducted tho youth
without mistakes until at last he began
to chucklo with gleo and self-satisfaction.
"Ah, thar yeh urc. Seo that
The youth nodded stupidly.
"Well, thcrc'H whero your reg'ment
is. An' now good-by, ol' boy, good
luck t' yeh."
A warm and ctroug hand clasped the
youth's languid lingers for nn instant,
and then ho heard a cheerful uixl auda
cious whistling as the man strodo
away. As ho who had ho befriended
him was thus Dassing out of his life, it
Suddenly occurred to the youth that he
had not once seen his face.
Ho went slowly toward the firo Indi
cated by his departed friend. As lie
reeled, ho bethought him of the wel
come his comrades would give him. Ho
had a conviction that ho would soon
feel in his sore heart the barbed missiles
of ridicule. Ho had no strength to in
vent a tale; he would bo a soft target.
He made vfiguo plans to go off into
tho deeper darkness and hide, but they
were all destroyed by tho voices of ex
haustion und pain from his body. His
ailments clamoring, forced him to seok
tho pluce of food and rest at whatever
He swung unsteadily toward the Arc.
IIo could seo tho forms of men throw
ing black shudows in the red light, und
as ho went nearer it becamo Jcnown to
him in somo way that the ground was
strewn with sleeping men.
Of a sudden hcuVon fronted a dark and
monstrous figure. A riflo barrel caught
Borne glinting beams. "Halt, halt."
Ho was dismayed for'artJment, but ho
presently thought that ho recognized
tho nervous voice As ho stood totter
