THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE FRIDAY MORXING, AUGUST 2, 1895.
A DETAIL OF AN AMERICAN BATTLE

By STEPHEN CRANE.

Collins appeared as roan dreaming.
In the midst of the questions, the ad
vice, the warning, all the excited talk
of his company-mat, he maintained
a curtoua alienee.
They were very buy In preparing
him for his ordeal. When .they Inspect
ed him carefully H was -somewhat like
the examination that g-rooma give a
horse before race; and they were
mazed, susgered by the whole affair.
Their astonishment found vent In
"Are yeh sure a-goin'T" they demand
td again and again.
Certainly I am," cried Collins, at

He was swinging ave or six canteens
by their cords. It seemed' that his cap

and oCten he reached and pulled it
down over his brow.
There was a general movement In
the compact column. The long animal'
tike things moved slightly. Its four
hundred eyes were turned upon the fig

When Collins faced the meadow and
walked away from the reglmer.it he was
vaguely conscious that a chasm, the
deep valley of all prides, was suddenly
between him and his comrades. It was
provisional, but the provision, was that
he return as a victor. iHe had blindly
been led by quaint emotions and laid
himself under an obligation to walk
squarely up to the face of death.
Rut Ka rsvflft tint .lire rhflit h wIbIimI
to make a retraction teven if he couM
do so without shame. As a matter of
ttuth he was sure of very little. He
was maVr.lv auimrised.
It seemed , to him supernaturally
strange that he had allowed his mind
to maneuver his bodv into such a sit
uation. He understood that It might
be called dramatically great.
However, he had no full appreciation
of anythlnr exceDtlnar that h Uflfl III.
tually conscious of being dazed. He
coma reel lue auiied mind groping after
the form and color of this Incident. .
Too, h wondered why be did not feel
tome keen agony of ear cutting his
sense like a knife. He wondered at
this because human expression had
said loudly for centuries that men
.noma reel airaia or certain things
and that all men who did not feel this
fear were phenomenal heroes.
Ho was then a hero. He suffered
that disappointment which we would
all have if we discovered that we were
. ourselves capable of those deeds which
we most admire In history and legend.
Thla then, was a hero. After all, he
roe were not much.
N, It could not be true. He was not
a hero. Heroes had no shames in their
Uvea and, a for him, he remembered
borrowing $15 from a friend and prom
ising to pay It back the next day, and
then avoiding that friend for, ten
month. When at home his mother had
aroused him for the early labor of his
life on the farm. It had often been his
fashion to toe Irritable, childish, dia
bolical, and bis mother had died since
lie had com to the war.
He saw that In this matter of the
.well, the oanteene, the hells, he was
an intruder to -the land of fine deeds.
H was how about thirty paces from
Ills comrades, The regiment had just
turned tta many faces toward him.
From the forest of terrific noises
there suddenly emerged a Uttle un
even line of men. They flred fiercely
and rapidly at distant foliage on which
appeared little puff of smoke. The
patter at skirmish firing was added
Te little line of men ran forward. A

Colline suddenly felt that two demon
finger, were pressed Into his ears. He
"I ,urche1 from th
shock of this explosion, but he made
a mad-rush for the housewhich he
viewed as a man submerged to the neck
r.m a boiling turf might view the shore.
In the air, little pieces of shell howled
and the; earthquake explosions drove
him Insane with the menace of their
. roar. As he ran the canteens knocked
together with a rhythmical tinkling.
As he neared the home, each detail
Of the scene became vivid to him. He
was aware of some bricks of the van-
j lined chimney lying on the sod. There
.iras a door which hung by one hinge.
v.. Rifle bullets called forth by the Insist
ent skirmishers came from the far-off
., bank 'of foliage. They mingled with
the shells and the pieces of sheila until
rtha air was torn In all directions by
hooting, yells, howls, r The sky was
full of fiends who directed all their wild
rage at his head.
When he came to the well, he flung
himself face downward and peered Into
Its darkness. There were furtive silver
gllntlngs some feet from the surface.
He grabbed one of the canteens, and.
unfastening its cap, swung it down by
the cord. The water flowed slowly In
with an Indolent gurgle.
And now as he lay with his face
turned away he was suddenly smitten
with the terror. It came upon his heart
like the grasp of claws. All the power
faded from his muscles. For an in
stant he was no more than a dead man.
The canteen filled with a maddening
slowness in the manner of all bottles.
Presently he recovered his strength and
addressed a screaming oath to it. He
leaned over until it seemed as if he In
tended to try to push water Into it with
his hands. His eyes as he gazed down
Into the well shone like two pieces of
metal and in their expression was a
great appeal and a great curse. The
stupid water derided him.
There was the blaring thunder of a
shell. Crimson light shone through the
swtft-bolllng smoke and made a pink
reflection on part of the wall of the
well. Collins Jerked out his arm and
canteen with the same motion that a
man would use In withdrawing his
head from a furnace...
He scrambled erect and glared and
hesitated. On the ground near him lay
the old well bucket, with a length of
rusty chain. He towered it swiftly Into
the welt. The bucket struck the water
and then, turning lazily over. sank.
When, with hand reaching tremblingly
over hand, he hauled It out. It knocked
often against the walls of the well and
spilled some of its contents.
In running with a filled bucket, a
man can adopt but one kind of gait.
So through this terrible, field over
which screamed practical angels of
death Collins ran in the manner of a
farmer chased out of a dairy by a bull.
Hla face went staring White with
anticipation anticipation of a blow
that would whirl him around and down.
He would fall as he had seen other
men fall, the life knocked out of them
so suddenly that their knees were no
more quick to touch the ground than
their heads. He saw the long blue line
of the regiment, but his comrades
were standing looking at him from the
edge of an Impossible star. He was
aware of some deep wheel ruts and
hoof-prints in the sod beneath his feet.
The artillery officer who had fallen In
this meadow had been making groans
in the teeth of the tempest of sound.
These futile cries, wrenched from him
by his agony, were heard only by shells,
bullets. When wild-eyed Collins came
running, this offloer raised himself. His
face contorted and blanched from pain,
he was- about to utter some great be
seeching cry. But suddenly his face
straightened and he called: "Say,
young man, give me a drink of water,
Collins had no room amid his emo
tions for surprise. He was mad from
the threats of destruction.
"I can't," he screamed, and In this
reply was a full description of his
quacking apprehension. His cap was
gone and 'his hair was riotous. His
clothes made It appear that he had been
dragged over the ground by the heels.
He ran on.
The officer's bead sank down and one
elbow crooked. His foot In Its brass
bound stirrup still stretched over the
body of his horse and the other leg was
under the steed.
But Collins turned. He came dashing
back. His face had now turned gray
and in his eyes wus all terror. "'Here It
1s! (Here it to!".
The officer was as a man gone In
drtr.k. iHls arm bended like a it wig.
His head, drooped as if hls neck was of
willow. iHe was sinking to the ground,
to lie face downward.
Collin grabbed him by the shoulder.
"Here it Is. Here's your drink. Turn
over! Turn over, nra.n, for God's sake!"
With Collins hauling at hla shoulder,
the officer twisted his body and fell
where hie face turned toward thait
Col I las Raa I.Iks a Farmer Chased by a
region' where lived ' Che unspeakable
noisea of .the swirling missiles. There
was the faintest shadow of a smile on
bis Ilea as Me looked at rVilllne Me
gjive a sigh, a'llttle primitive breath
like .'hat from a child.
Collins tried to hold the bucket steadi
ly, but hi shaking hands caused the
water to splash all over the face of the
dying man. Then he Jerked It away
and raft on.
The regiment gave him a welcoming
roar. The grimed faces were wrinkled
Hla captain waved the bucket away.
"Give it to the imen.1"
The two genial, sky-larking young
lieutenants were the first to gain pos
session or it. ,They played over U In

suddenly there was an oath, the thud
of wood on the ground, and a swift
murmur of astonishment from the
ranks. The two' lieutenants glared at

ground empty. A

A divine providence kept both women

for an undue proportion of tonnage.
The fact that the meeting of the coal

taken to mean on the Street thait they

by the Reading, but Mie New York
companies did not ilook on It favorably,
