THE SCEANTON TMBTTNE TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 11, 1894.

But I was not easily clouded, for I
have seen too many singular things, so
I hummed a tune between my teeth
and thought of little Llsette whom I
might see in 'Paris. My mind was full
upon her when, trotting round a corner,
I came straight upon half a dozen Uer
.nnin dragoons who were sitting round
a bruHhwood fire by the roadslda.
I am an excellent soldier. I do not
sny this because I am prejudiced in my
own favor, but because 1 really am so.
1 can weigh- every chance In a moment
n nd decide with as much certainty aa
though I hail brooded for a week. Now
I saw like a flash that come what might
I should be chased, and on a horse
which had already done a long twelve
leagues. Hut it was better to be
chased onwards than chased back. On
this moonlit night, with fresh horses be
hind me, I must take my risk In either
case, but if I were to shake them off, I
preferred that it should be near Senlls
than near t?olssons. All this flashed on
me, as if by instinct, you understand.
Jly eyes had harly rested upon the
"I Let Violetto Have Her Head."
bearded faces under the brass helmets
before my rowels were up to the bosses
In Violette's side and she was off with
a rattle like a pas-decharge. Oh, the
shouting and rushing and stamping
from behind us! Three of them fired
and three swung themselves onto their
horses. A bullet rapped on the crupper
of the saddle with a noise like a stick on
a door. Vlolette sprang madly forward
and I thought she had been wounded,
but It was only a graze above the near
fore fetlock. Ah, the dear Utile mare,
how I loved her when I felt her settle
down Into that long easy gallop of hers,
her hoofs going like a Spanish girl's
castanets. I could not hold myself.. I
turned on my saddle and shouted and
raved. "Vive L'Empereur!" I screamed,
and laughed at the gust of oaths that
came back to me.
But It was not over yet. If she had
been fresh she might have gained a
mile In five. Now she could only hold
her own with a very little over. There
was one of them, a young boy of an offi
cer, who was better mounted that the
others. He drew ahead with every
etride. Two hundred yards behind him
were two troopers, but I saw every time
that I glanced round that the distance
between them was Increasing. The
other three who had waited to shoot
were a long way in the rear. The of
ficer's mount was a bay, a fine horse,
though not to be spoken of with Vio-
Ii tte. Yet It was a powerful brute, and
it seemed to me that In a few miles Us
freshness might tell. I waited until
the lad was a long way In front of his
comrades, and then I eased my mare
down a llttlt. a very, very little, so
that he might think that he was really
catching me. When he came within
pistol shot of me I drew and cocked my
own pistol and laid my chin upon my
shoulder to see what he would do. He
did not offer to fire and I soon discerned
the cause. The silly boy hnd taken his
pistols from his holsters when he had
camped for the night. He wagged his
sword at mo now and roared some of
his gibberish. He did not seem to un
derstand that he was at my mercy. I
eased Vlolette down until there was
not the length of a long lance between
the gray tail and the bay muzzle.
"Rendez-vous!" he yelled.
' "I must compliment monsieur upon
his French," said I, resting the barrel
of my pistol upon my bridle arm, which
I have always found best when shoot
ing from the saddle. I aimed at his
face, and could see, even In the moon
light, how white he grew when ho un
derstood that It was all up with him.
But even aa my finger pressed the trig
ger I thought of his -mother and I put
my ball through 'his horse's shoulder.
I fear he hurt himself In the fall, for It
was a fearful crash, but I had my letter
to; think of, so I stretched the mare into
ft gallop once more.
But they were not so easily shaken
off, these brigands. The two troopers
thought no more of their young officer
than if he had beeh a recruit thrown
in the riding school. They left him to
the others and thundered on after me.
I had pulled up on the brow of a hill,
& i.4v .
thlnklng that I had heard the last of
them, but, my faith, I soon saw that
there was no time for loitering, so away
wo went, the mare tossing her head
and I my busby, to show what we
thought of two dragoons who tried to
catch a hussar. But at this moment,
even while I laughed at the thought,
my heart stood still within me, for
there at the end of the long, white road
was a black patch of cavalry waiting
to receive me. To a young soldier it
might have seemed the shadow of the
trees, but to me it, was a. troop of hus
sars, and turn where I would death
seemed to be waiting for me.
Well, I had the dragoons behind me
and the hussars in front. Never since
Moscow have I seemed to be in such
peril. But for the honor of the brigade
I would rather be cut down by a light
cavalryman than by a heavy. I never
drew bridle, therefore, or hesitated for
an instant, but I let Vlolette have her
head. I remember that I tried to pray
as 1 rode, but I am a little out" of prac
tice at such things and the only words
I could remember were the prayer for
fine weather which we used at the
school on the evening before holidays.
Even this seemed better than nothing,
and I was pattering it out, when sud
denlywhen suddenly I heard French
voices In front of me. Ah, mon Dleu,
but the joy went through my heart
like a musket ball. They were ours
our own dear little rascals from the
corps of Marmont. Round whisked my
two dragoons and galloped for their
lives with the moon gleaming on their
brass helmets, while I trotted up to my
friends with no undue haste, for I
would have them understand that
though a hussar may fly it is not In his
nature to fly very fast. Yet I fear that
Violette's heaving flanks and foam
spattered muzzle gave the lis to my
iVho should be at the head of the
troop but old Bouvet whom I saved at
Leipsig. When he saw me his little
pink eyes filled with tears, and indeed
I could not but shed a few myself at the
sight of his Joy. I told him of my mis
sion, but he laughed when I said I must
pass through Senlis.
"The enemy is there," said he. "You
"I prefer to go where the enemy Is,"
I answered. "I would ride through
Berlin If I had the emperor's order."
"But why not go straight to Paris
with your dispatch? Why should you
choose to pass through the one place
where you are almost sure to be taken
"A soldier doe3 not choose. Ho
obeys," said I, just as I had heard Na
poleon say It.
Old Bouvet laughed In his wheezy
way until I had to give my moustache
a twirl and look him up and down in a
manner which brought him to reason.
"Well," said he, "you had best come
along with us, for we are all bound for
Senlis." Our orders are to reconnoitre
the place. A squadron of Poniatowskl's
Polish lancers are In front of us. If
you must ride through it it la possible
that we may be able to go with you."
So away we went, jingling and clank
ing through the quiet night until we
came up with the Poles line old sol
diers, all of them, though a trifle heavy

for their horses. It was a treat to see
them, for they could not have carried
themselves better If they had belonged
to my own brigade. We rode together
until In the early morning we saw
the lights of Senlls. A peasant was
coming along with a cart, and from him
we learned how things were goingthere.
His Information was certain, for his
brother was .the mayor's coachman and
he had spoken with him laite the nlgtot
before. There was a single squadron
of Cossacks or & polk as they call It in
thtAr frightful language quartered
upon the mayor's house, which stands
at the corner of the market place, and
la the largest building In the town. A
whole division of Prussian infantry
was femcamped In the woods to the
nontih, but only the Cossacks wore in
Senlis. Ah! what a chance to avenge
ourselves upon these barbarians, whose
cruttlty to our poor country folk was
the talk ait every camp fire. We were
Into the town like a torrent, hacked
down the vedettes, rode over the guard
a.nd Were smashing In the doors -of thq
mayor's house before they understood
that there was a Frenchman within
twenty miles of them. We saw horrid
heads ot the, windows, heads bearded
to the 'temples, with tangled hair and
sheepskin caps, and silly gaping
mouths. "Hourra! Hourra!" they
shrieked, and fired with their carblna,
but our fellows were Into the house
and at ithelr throats before they had
wiped the sleep out of their eyeB. It
was dneadfua to eee how the Polos flung
themselves upon them, Hke starving
weaves upon a herd of fait bucks for,
as you know, the Poles 'have a blood
feud against It he Cossacks. The most
were killed In the upper rooms, whither
they had fled for shelter, and the blood
was pouring down into the hall like
rain upon a roof. They are terrible
soldiers, these Poles, though I think
they are a trifle heavy for their horses.
Man for man they are as big as
Keilarmann's cuirassiers. Their equip
ment, however, is of course much
lighter, since they are without ithe
cuirass, buck plate and helmet.
Well, It was at this point that I made
an error a very serious error, it must
be admitted. Up to this moment I had
carried out my mission in a manner
which only my modesty prevents me
from describing as remarkable. But
now I did that which an official would
condemn and a soldier excuse.

mean to be anything. Juvenal.
The duty of man is not a wilderness
of turnpike gates, through which he is
to pass by tickets from one to the
other. It is plain and simple, and con
sists of two points his duty to God,
which every man must feel; and, with
respect to his neighbor, to do as he
would be done by. Thomas Paine.

all men equal today, and God has so
created them that they shall all be un
equal tomorrow. Anthony Trollope.
It was not known where he that In

for the happiness of the world than
the whole race of heroes and of con
querors who have drenched it with

whose birth, parentage and education
have been handed down to us with a
precision precisely proportionate to the
mischief they have done. Colton.

NEXT TO HAM.
There Was a Time When Ham Was Con
sidered a Luxury.
From the Chicago Tribune.
They are telling a pretty good story
of a tourist who ventured beyond Dead
wood. He was determined to see all
there was that could bo called wild and
woolly, and immediately demanded to
know where he could ride on a real
stage coach. The Deadwood stago
coaches of dime novel fame are rotting,
unused and unlionoretl, on the sides of
tho hill, but a stage line still runs be
tween Deadwood and Spearflsh.
Perched beside the driver of this stage,
the tourist was delighted to find, that
this man had really driven a coach in
the good old days. All efforts to draw
out some story, or even a sage remark
which would be carefully treasured and
repeated,, were failures. They were
bowling along the side of a creek, and
the tourist finally Raid:
"I hoar you've got line trout In these
"Isn't there trout in this stream?"
"Fine fish, sir."
"Don't you like, trout?" asked the
traveler in desperation, turning in his
seat in a way that demanded an answer.
"Next to ham."
The astonished tourist was delighted
with the result of his discovery when he
finally figured out that ham was once n
luxury and trout an every-day diet in
that country. '
