THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 10y 1894.
(These short serial stories are copyrighted by Bacheller, Johnson & Each
eller and are printed InTheTrlbune by special arrangement, simultaneous with
thir appearance In the leading dally Journals of the large cities).
The duke of Tarentum, or McDonald,
as his old comrades preferred to call
him, was, as I could perceive, In the
Vilest of tempers. His grim Scotch
face was like one of those grotesque
door knockers which one sees in the
Faubourg St. Germain. We heard
afterwards that the emperor had said
'In Jest that he would have sent him
against Wellington in the south, but
that ho was afraid to trust him within
sound of the pipes. Major Charpentler
lie Was Standing at the Side of the Room.
and I could plainly see that he was
smouldering with anger.
"Brigadier Gerard, of the Hussars,"
said he, with .the air of the corporal
with the recruit,
"Major Charpenitler, of the Horse
My companion answered to his name.
"The emperor has a mission for you."
Without more ado he flung open the
door and announced us.
I have seen Napoleon ten times on
horseback to once on foot, and I think
that he does wisely to show himself to
his troops In this fashion, for he cuts a
very good figure In the saddle. As we
saw him now he was the shortest man
cut of six, by a good hand's breadth,
and yet I am not a very big man myself,
thoug-h I ride quite heavy enough for a
liussar. It Is evident, too, that his body
Is too long for his legs. With his big
round head, his curved shoulders and
hla clean-shaven face, lie Is more like a
professor at the Sorbonne than the
first soldier of Prance. Every man to
hla tastes, but It seems to me that If I

.'Would do him no harm. He has a firm
mouth, however, and his eyes are re
markable, I have neen theni -once
turned upon me In anger, and I had
rather ride at a square on a spent
horse than face them again. I am not
fi man that Is easily daunted, either.
He wag standing at the side of the
room,' away from the window, looking
tip at a great map of the country, which
Was hung upon the wall. Berthler
stood beside him trying to look wise,
and Just as we entered Napoleon
snatched Ills sword Impatiently from
him, and pointed with it on the map.
He was talking fast and low, but I
heard him say: "The valley of the
Meuse," and 'twice he repeated : "Ber-
lln." As we entered his aid-de-camp
advanced to us, but the emperor
stopped him, and beckoned us to his
"V'ou have not yet received a cross
of honor, Brigadier Gerard V" he asked.
I replied that I had not, and was
about to add that It was not for one
who hadn't deserved It, when he cut
me short In his decided' fashion.
"And you, major?" he asked.
"Then you Fhall both have your op
He led us to the great map upon the
wall, and placed the tip of Berthler's
sword upon Iihoims.
"I will be frank with you, gentlemen,
as with two comrades. You have both
been with me since Marengo, I believe."
lie had a. strangely pleasant smile
which used to light up his pale face
with a kind of cold sunshine. "Here at
Bhelms are our present headquarters
on this, the 14th of March. Very good.
Here Is Paris, distant by road a good
twenty-five leagues. Tllueher lies to
the north, Sehwarzenbury to thesouth."
He prodded at the map with the sword
as lie spoke.
"Now," said he, "the further Into the
country these people march, the more
completely I shall crush them. They
are about to advance upon Paris. Very
good. Let them do so. My brother,
the king of Spain, will be there with a
hundred thousand men. It Is to him
that I send you. You will hand him
this letter, a copy of which I confide to
each of you. It Is to tell him that I am
coming at once. In two day's time, with
every man and horse and gun, to his re
lief. I must give them forty-eight
hours to recover. Then straight to
Paris. You understand me, gentle
Ah, If I could tell you the glow of
pride It gave me to be taken Into the
great man's confidence lu this way.
As he handed our letters to us I clicked
my spurs and threw out my chest,
smiling and nodding to let him know
that I saw what he would be after. He
smiled also and rested his hand for a
moment upon the cape of my dolman.
I would have given half my arrears of
pay If my mother could have seen me
at that Instant.
"I will show you your route," said ho,
turning back to the map. "Your orders
are to ride together as far as Bazoches.
You will then separate, the one making
for Paris by Oulchy and Neullly, and
the other to the north by Bralne, Sols-
Bons and Senlis. Have you anything
to say, Brigadier Gerard?"
I am a rough soldier, but I have words
and ideas. I had begun to speak about
glory and the peril of France when he
cut me short.
"And you, Major Charpentler?"
"If we found our route unsafe, are
we at liberty to choose anoither?"
"Soldiers do not choose. They obey."
He Inclined his head to show that we
were dismissed and turned round to
Berthler. I do not know what he said,
but I heard them both laughing.
Well, as you may think, we lost lit
tle time In getting upon our way. In
half an hour we were riding down the
high street of Rhelms, and It struck
12 o'clock as we passed the cathedral.
Was Heavy with Thought. ''-
I had my little gray mare, Violette, the
one which Sebastla.nl had wished to
buy after Dresden. It is the fastest
horse in the six brigades of light caval
ry,' and was only beaten by the duke
of ItovJgo's rater from England. Aa
to Charpentler he 'had the kind of
horse which a horse grenadier or a
curassler would be likely to ride, a
back like a bedstead, you understand,
and legs like the posts. He Is a hulk
ing fellow himself, so that they looked
a singular pair. And yet in his inane
conceit he ogled the girls as they waved
their handkerchiefs to me from the
windows, and, he' twirled his ugly
red mustache )ip Into hla eyes, Just as If
It were to him thlr attention was
When we came out of the town we
passed through the French camp and
then across the battlefield of yester
day, which was still covered both by
our own poor fellows and by the Prus
sians. But of the two the camD was
the sadder sight. Our army was thaw
ing away. The guards were all right,
though the young guard was full of
conscripts. The artillery and the heavy
cavalry were also good if there were
more of them, but the Infantry privates
with their officers looked like school
boys with their masters. And we had
no reserves. When one considered that
there were 80.000 Prussians to the north
and 150,000 Prussians and Austrians to
the south, It might make even the
bravest man grave. For my own part
confess Mat I shed a tear until the
thought came that the emperor was
still with us and Unit on that very
morning he had placed his hand upon
my dolman and had promised me a
medal of honor. This set nie singing
and I Bpurred Violette on until Char
pentler had to beg me to have mercy
on his great snorting, panting camel.
The road was beaten into paste and
rutted two feet deep by the artillery,
so that he was right In saying that it
was not the place for a 'gallop.
I have never been very kindly with
this Charpentler, and now for twenty
miles of the way I could not draw a
word from him. He rode with (his
brows puckered and his chin upon hla
breast like a man who Is heavy with
thought. More than once I asked him
what was on his mind, thinking that
perhaps with my quicker intelligence I
might set the matter straight. His an
swer always was that it was his mis
sion of which he was thinking, which
surprised me, because, although I had
never thought much of his Intelli
gence, still it seemed to me to be im
possible that anyone could be puzzled
by so simply and soldierly a task.
Well, we came at last to Bazoches,
where he was to tnka the pnuthern
road and I the northern. He hinlf
turned In his saddle before he left me
and lie looked at me with a singular
expression of inquiry on his face.
What do you make of it, brigadier?"
'Of oiir mission."
'Surely, It is plain enough.'"
'You think so? Why should the em-
peixir tell us Ills plans?"
Because he recognized our intelli
My companion laughed In a manner
which I found annoying. "May I ask
what you Intend to do if you lind thesa
villages full of Prussians?" he nuked.
"I shall obey my orders.
"But you will be killed."
He laughed again and so offensively
that I clapped my hand to -my sword.
But before I could tell him what 1
thought of his stupidity and rudeness
he had wheeled his horse and was lum
bering away down the road. I Baw
his big fur cap vanish over the brow
of a hill, and then I rode upon my
way wondering at his conduct. Y rom
time to time I put my hand to the
breast of my tunic and felt the paper
crackle beneath my fingers. Ah; my
precious paper which should be turneu
into the little silver medal for which I
had yearned so long. All the way
from Bralne to Sermolse I was think
ing of what my mother would say when
she saw it.
I stopped to give Violette a meal at a
wayside nuherge on the side of a hill
not far from Soissons a place sur
rounded by old oaks, and with so many
crows that one could scarce hear one's
own voice. It was from the innueeper
that I learned that Marmont had fallen
back two days before and that the
Prussians were over the Aisne. An
hour later In the fading light I saw
two of their vedettes upon a hill to the
right and then, as darkness gathered,
the heavens to the north were all glim
mering from the lights of a bivouac.
When I heard that Blucher had been
there for two days I was much sur
prised that the emperor should not
have known that the country through
which he had ordered me to carry my
precious letter was already occupied by
the enemy. Still I thought of the tone
of his voice when he said to Charpen
tler that a soldier must not choose but
must obey. I should follow the route
he had laid down to me as long as Vio
lette could move a hoof or I a finger
upon her bridle. All the way from
Sermolse to Soissons, where the road
dips up and down, curving among fir
woods, I kept my pistol ready and my
Bword belt braced, pushing on swiftly
where the path was straight and then
coming slowly around the corners in
the way we learned In Spain.
When I came to the farmhouse which
lies to the right of the road Just after
you cross the wooden bridge over the
Crlse, near where the great statue of
tho Virgin stands, a woman cried to me
from the field saying the Prussians
were In Soissons. A Bmall party of
their lancers, she Bald, had come on
that very afternoon and a whole di
vision was expected before midnight. I
did not wait to hear the end of her
tale, but clapped spurs Into Violette
and five minutes later was galloping
her into the town.
Throe Uhlans were at the mouth of
the main street, their horses tethered,
and they gossiping together, each with
a pipe as long as my saber. I saw them
well at the light of an open door, but
of me they could have seen only the
flush of Vlolette's gray side and tho
black flutter of my cloak. A moment
later I flew through a stream of them
rushing' from an open gateway. , Vlo
lette's shoulder sent one of them reel
ing and I stabbed at another but missed
him. Pang, pang, went two carbines,
but I had flown through the curve of
the street and never bo much as heard
the hiss of the balls. Ah, we were great,
both Violette and I. She lay down to
It, like a coursed hare, the fire flying
from her hoofs. I stood In my ntlrrup3
and brandished my sword. Some one
sprang for my bridle. I Bllced him
through the arm and I heard him howl
ing behind me. Two horsemen closed
upon me. I cut one down and outpaced
the other. A minute later I was clear
of the town and flying down a broad
white road with the black poplars on
either Bide. For a time I heard the rat
tle of hoofs behind me, but they died
and died until I could not tell them
from the throblng of my own heart,
Soon I pulled up and listened, but all
was silent. They had given up the
Well, the first thing that I did was
to dismount and to load my mare Into
a small wood through which a stream
ran. There I watered her and rubbed
her down, giving her two" pieces of
sugar snaked In cognac from my. flask.
She was spent from the Bharp chase,
but It was wonderful to see how she
came round with a half-hour's, rest.
When my thighs closed upon her again
I could tell by the spring and swing of
her that It would not be her fault if I
did not win my way safe to Paris,
I must have been well within 'the
enemy's lines now, for I heard a.num
ber of them shouting one of their rough
drinking oongs out of a house by the
roadside, and I went round by 'the
fields to avoid it. At another time two
men came out into the moonlight (for
by this time It was a cloudless' night)
and Bhouted something in German, but
I galloped on without heeding them
and they were afraid to fire, for their
own hussars are dressed exactly as I
was. It is best to take no notice at
these times and then they put you
down as a deaf man.
It was a lovely moon and every tree
threw a black bar across the road. I
cculd Bee the country side just as if it
were daytime, and very peaceful it
looked, save that there was a great fire
raging somewhere in the north. In the
silence of the night time and with the
knowledge that danger was in front
and behind me, the sight of that great
distant fire was very striking and awe
