"With your leave," said I. I shall
How bind you to a barrel."
He made a great fuss over this, but I
have learned in' my soldiering never to
throw away chances, and how could I
tell that he mltfltt not, when my back
was turned, see how the matter really
cloud and break In upon my plans? He
was lenalng against a barrel at the
time, so I ran six times around It with
a rope and then tied it with a big knot
behind. If he wished' to come upstairs
he would at least have to earry a thous
and litres of good French wine fur a
knapsack. I then shut the door of the
back cellar behind me, so that he
might not hear what was going fur
ward, and, tossing the candle away, I
ascended the kitchen stair.
There were only ubout twenty steps,
end yet while I came up them I seemed

feeling that I had at Kylau when. I 'fay
with my broken leg and saw "the horse
artillery galloping d'lwiYupon me. Of
course I knew tliivt if I we're taken I
should be shot Instantly as being dis
guised within the enemy's lines.
Still, It was a glorious death, In the di
rect service of the Emperor, and I re
flected that there could not be less than

five lines, and perhaps seven, In the
llonlleur about me. I'alaret had eight
lines, and I am sure that he had not so
fine a career.
When I made my way out Into the
Jiall, with nil the nonchalance in my
face and manner that I could assume,
ithe very first thing that I saw was Hou
Vet's dead body, with his knees drawn
up and a broken sword in his hand. I
could see by the black smudge that he
liad been shot at close quarters. I
should have wished to salute as I went
by, for he was a gallant man, but I
feared lest I should be seen, and so I
The front of the hall was full of Prus
sian Infantry, who were knocking loop
holes In the wall, as though they ex
pected that there might yet be another
attnek. Their uiricer, a little rat of a
man, was running about giving direc
tions. They were all too busy to take
much notice of me, but another of
ficer, who was standing by the door

hussars and saying something that was
meant for a Jest, for his big beard
opened and showed every fang, In his
head. I laughed heartily, also, and
fif.id.the only Itusslnn words that I
know. I learned them from Sophy at
AVilna, and they meant: "If the night
Is fine we Bhall meet under the oak tree,
and If It rains we shall meet In the
byre." It was all the same to this Ger
man, however, and I have no doubt
that he gave me credit for saying some
thing very witty, indeed, for he roarwl
laughing nnd slapped me on my
shoulder again. I nodded to him and
marched out of the hall door as coolly
as If I were the commandant of the
garrison. There were a hundred horses
tethered about outside, most of them
belonging to the Poles and hussars.
Good little Vlolette was waiting with
the others and she whinnied when she
saw me coming toward her. But I
would not mount her. No, I was too
cunning for that. On the contrary, I
chose the moBt shaggy little Cossack
horse that I could see, and I sprang
upon It- with as much assurance as
though, It had belonged to my father
before me,, It had a great bag of
plunder slung over Its neck, and this
I laid upon Vlolette's back and led hef
v along beside me. Never have you seen.
FUch a picture of the Cossack returning
Irom the foray. It was superb.
Well, the town was full of Prussians
by this time. They lined the sidewalks
and pointed me out to each other, say
ing, -as, I could Judge byw.the gestures:
"There goes one of those devils of Cos
sacks. They are the boys for foraging
and plunder. '' One of the two officers
spoke to ma with an air of authority,

but I shook my head and smiled and
said: "If the night Is fine we shall
meet under the onk tree, 'but If It rains
we shall meet In the byre." At which
they shrugged their shoulders and gave
the matter up. In this way I worked
along until I was beyond the northern
outskirt of the town. I could see In the
roadway two lancer vedettes, with their

black and white pennons, and I knew
that when I was once past these I
should be a free man once more. I
made my pony trot, therefore, Vlolette
rubbing her nose against my knee all
the time, and looking up at me to ask
how she had deserved that his doormat
of a creature should be preferred to her.
I was nut mure than a hundred yards
frum the Uhlans, when suddenly, yuu
can Imagine my feelings when I saw a
real Cossack coming galloping along
the roadway toward me.
Ah, my friend, you who read this, If
you have any heart, you will feel for a
man like me, whp had gone through so
many dangers and trials only at this
very last moment to be confronted
with one which apppearod to put an
end to everything. I will confess that
for a moment I lost heart and was in
clined to throw myself down In my
despair. Hut no, I was not beaten even
now. I opened two buttons of my
tunic, so that I mlght get easily at the
emperor's message, for It was my fixed
determination, when all hope was gone,
to swallow the letter and then . file
sword In hand. Then I felt..t-hut my
little crooked sword yy-ay loose In Its
shea th,. an'd' I trotted on to where the
vjfli'ttes were waiting. They seemed
i'nellned to stop me, but I pointed to the
other Cossack, who was still a couple
of hundred yards off, and they, un
derstanding that I merely wished to
meet him, let me pass with a salute.
I dug my spurs Into my pony, then,
for if I were only far enough from the
lancerc I thought I might manage the
Cossack without much difficulty. He
was an officer, a large, bearded man,
with a gold chevron in his cap just the

same as mine. As I advanced he un
consciously aided me by pulling up his
horse, so that I had a line start of the
vedettes. On I came for him, and I
could see wonder turning to suspicion
in his brown eyes as he looked at me
and my pony equipment. I do not
know whut It was that was wrong, but
he saw something which was not as It
should be. He shouted out a question
and then, when I gave no answer, he
pulled out his sword. 1 was glad In
my heart to see him do so, for I had

A POET-SCOUT IN LUCK.
"Captain Jack Crawford May Prove Heir
to a Scotch Fortune.
Captain Jack Crawford Is known In
the western states as "the Poet Scout.'
Even Cody and Carver were never call
ed poetic, though they looked pictures'
que enough to be heroes of romance.
Now Crawford, while yet a boy, fought
.n the great war, was wounded, and as
nn Interesting hospital patient was edu
cated by the sisters of mercy. When
the war was over he was employed as
an Indian scout. i
He saw many and varied adventure,
and was with General Cook through
the Sitting Bull campaign and led the
famous charge at Slim Buttes after the
Custer massacre. From 1879 to 1881 he
was chief of the scouts under Generals
Hatch and Buell In the Victoria cam
paign, during which over 600 men,
women and children were slaughtered
by the Indians.

In the early days of New York, one
William Wallace, a Scotchman, settled
In Staten Island, and amassed a large
fortune. He was a bachelor. After
some correspondence with his widowed
sister in old Scotia, he invited her to go
out to him with her family, undertak
ing to pay their passage nnd keep and
educate her children. She answered,
and awaited to hear again; but no pass
age money came, no more letters of any
kind. Then Bhe had Inquiries made,
and found that he had died without
making a will. An uncle of the "poet
scout" some three years since wont to
Scotland to settle the family estate,
relying largely on the letters written
by Wallace to his sister.
Soon after his arrival a little leather
trunk containing these precious docu
ments was destroyed by fire. He was
thus unable to prove his claim to the
vast estates of his relative. This uncle
returned to America, and promptly dis
appeared, and no tidings of him can be
obtained: so Captain Jack Crawford,
the next kin, has sailed for Scotland to
prosecute the inquiry. It Is believed
that he has good evidence of his heir
ship. , If he has, he may come Into prop
erty worth $20,000,000.
A VERITABLE CRICIITOX.
This Wonderful Ihihv Reads German ond
Latin at Two Years Old.
The most wonderful case on record Is
that of the little sun of a butcher and
wife named Poehler In Braunschweig.
A few weeks ago the mother took the
baby, which Is only 21 months old, to
Dr. Berkhan for examination, telling
the doctor that the child could read
everything at sight. The first thing the
boy did to prove his mother's assertion
correct was to pick up the doctor's
books and read from them correctly, as
he turned page after page. The doctor
nnd several colleagues examined the
child and found that his development,
both physical and mental, was normal,
aside from a phenomenal amount of
memory Impressions, which enabled
him to read German and Latin, print
and script and also numbers composed
of two figures. At the age of 15 months
the child manifested unusual Interest
In all signboards and bill posters, the
show windows of book stores, etc., and
demanded an explanation for every
thing It saw in this line. It was the same
at home with the books and newspapers
If found about the house. In this way
the babe absorbed an enormous amount
of pictures of words, letters and figures.
One day, to the great astonishment of
his parents, the child pointed to the
name of "Otto" In a newspaper which
he snatched from his father's hand.
From that time on he read nearly
everything that came under his eyes.
As soon as he sees u book or newspaper
In anyone's hands the boy grows rest
less and nervous until It Is handed him.
When riding In a street car he sends up
a disappointed howl If his eyes do not
discover the usual street ear advertise
ments and placards.
This yearning for printed things Is
physiologically without explanation,
and medical history has not a similar
case on record, except that of Dase, the
famous mathematician, who gave evi
dence of his phenomenal talent in early
years. Hut this was all he ever knew.
The question Is asked by scientists who
have examined little Otto whether he
will develop In other directions as strik
ingly as he has In this. Fortunately
the parents have no Intentions of exhib
iting their wonderful offspring for
money, and the case Is watched by the
medical fraternity with unabated inter
est. "A. thing well begun is
half cone." The best half
of breakfast is Quaker
Oats. Delicious! Cheap! 1
