[Coi yrv ht, by AR:«rican Press Associa
In obedience to the stronger will and
| tli" additional f;ict that Captain Bran -
I don hr.d rescued him from his pursuers,
i H. ward Blanchard submitted at once
' t«' his control and followed where he
I led Bark into the hills they went un
j til it was n< ;irly daylight, when How
i ard. who had l>ecn stumbling on lieliind
• with f» r as heavy as his heart, called
"Captain, do you think we are bet
tering i is» Ives by this flight?"
"You ::r ■ deceived." replied the cap
tain. "The man who gallops back for
re-enf reemeuts when the battle is rag
ing can hirdly !»• said to lie retreating.
If Louis Kyle is living. I expect to hear
fr m hira Ik fore the suu g.x s down. "
The captain resumed the lead, and
descending from the m< nntaiii side,
which tiny had bet 11 traversing, en
tered a valley. This valley narrowed as
they went on, the sloping sides rising
at a sharper and sh:irper angle until
they became perpendicular and the val
ley became a canyon. Through thiscan
yon a thread of el. ar water flowed, with
a splashing and waving that struck
Hard to be out of all proportion <o
its size. Even the fall of his own feet
and the sound of his voice impressed
him as painful exaggerations.
The high perpendicular walls of the
CiUiyf.n magnified the sound, the echoes
being dashed back and forth till lost in
a hoarse muriLur far overhead. As they
went on it seemed to Howard as if they
were descending into the bowels of the
earth. The narrow strip of blue sky
looked like an ethereal river in which
the stars were reflected, for be it known
that in the profound depths that char
acterize the mountains of the west the
stars ciui be distinctly seen even when
the cloudless sun shines with mideutn- i
nier fervor in the sky of the upper J
"Can we ever get out of this place, I
captain?" asked Howard Blanchard, !
when the darkness became so dense that
he could hardly make out tho form of
his guide a few yards in the advance.
"Yes. Trust to mo and keep a good
heart," replied the captain, without
halting or looking back.
To pass from the narr. w, black cell
of a dungeon into tho center of an il la
minated salon in Windsor palace, if
suddenly affected, would bo a transfor
mation that would blind tho eyes foi
the time and overwhelm the senses. If
u light like tho sun were suddenly to
flash in the high heavens at midnight,
people would ignore the phenomenon for
the moment in tho overwhelming effect
upon the senses, yet something like this
happened to Howard Blanchard Tin re
was a short turn in tho canyon—a turn
that reveal'd what seemed to Howard
Blanchard like the door of a mighty fur
nace filled with molten gold, and in
this door tho black form of Captain
Brandon stood out liko a statue against
"Hold your hand to your eyes for a
bit," the captain shouted back, himself
setting tho example, and Howard obeyed
him. After a few minutes the captain
"Now, open your eyes and come on. "
This advice was to prepare the young
man for the sudden effect of a light that
was natural, but dazzling on account of
the change and the brilliancy of tlie sur
rounding snow j>oaks from which it was
reflected. A few yards farther on How
ard Blanchard discovered that the
canyon terminated in a valley or de
pression about a quarter of a mile in
diani' tor. Excepting at a point directly
opposite to that by which they had en
tered, this remarkable valley was shut
in by precipitous walls that roso up for
3,000 feet or more, and here and there
detached masses in the form of pinnacles
and looking like the mighty ruins of
Gothic cathedrals roso for 1,000 feet
The stream flowing along the bottom
of the canyon by which the two men
had entered widened out into an irreg
ular shaped lako a hundred yards wide
in its narrowest diameter and flashing
like a great mirror in the center of the
rock rimmed basin. Here tho waters
seemed to rest before rushing on through
tho opening in the opposite wall, by
which avenue they went down to join
tho sulphur crusted rocks of tho won
derful Yellowstone. Tho lako was fur
ther fed by it waterfall that leaped from
the summit of the wall, starting as a
band of liquid silver and reaching the
bottom a veil of iridescent foam. Tho
irregular shape of this valley added not
a little to its beauty. The few trees near
the walls, the many shrubs bordering
tho lake tuid tho grass carpeting tho ex
pause were of various shades of emerald,
each, iis tho oyo rested on it, seeming
tho very pn-fection of nature's coloring
"Why," exclaimed Howard Blanch
ard, when ho could give utterance to
his surprise, "this is wonderfull"
"The Indians call it 'The Great
Spirit's Council Place,' " said the cap
tain, his face glowing in the soft light
that suffused everything about him.
' 'And a fitting name it is. The com
bined hands of humanity, working
through all the- ages, could not build so
glorious a strueturo to the honor of the
ever living God," said the enraptured
Captain Brandon, who had been stand
ing ban hejuled, replaced his hat and
said, "Let us lie moving on. "
As Howard followed him ho asked,
"Is it not curious that this place is not
"It is a place in the belief of the In
dians too sacred for man to dwell in. "
"But white men could have no such
"True. White men consider no place
sacred that they have not built them
selvi s. Our altars are sacred in propor
tion to the art we lavish on them. But
thin temple has a priest"
"Yes; a priest as pure and faithful as
ever devoted his life to tho truth."
"Who can ho be?"
"This," said Captain Brandon, com
ing to a halt, "is the homo of Daniel
"< »f that remarkable being who came
to our aid?"
'' The chances am lie is now a prisoner
in B< niton's hands. "
"No, Howard, the chances arc he has
readied this place ahead of us."
They had come to a halt opposite a
serii of op.-'tiiiigs that looked like im
mense honeycombs cut into the face of
the wall. B ith heard a noise and bent
to listen. From faroff depths they
caught tho sound of a deep bass voice*
singing. Howard recognized the air. Ho
had often heard it in the camp meetings
of West Virginia The words, at first
indisr ingu ishabb\ became plainer and
plainer, till he caught tho phrases:
A string mountain la our Ooa.
And the hills arc his footstool.
"That is tli. Prophet," said Howard,
awed by tie- sound and the silent sulv
limity cf his surroundings.
"Yes, he comes this way."
The words had but passed Captain
Brandon's lips when the rhythmic beat
ing of feet could be hoard in cadence
*.v - h the voice. Then the measure
''i .<< .!, and in more joyous tones the
\>oi\.s rang out:
*'l run Joseph, yt ur brother," he said.
•And still Uj n.y heart are you dear
V- n s<»ld nit*. You thought 1 was dt-ad.
Lux God fur your hake sent me here.'
By I a- ban on'a shadow we <stood,
Tli- dark cedars I*OM«? out 'gainst the sky,
Wh- n the pray coot was dappled with blood
And tho slave traders* came passing by
T1 ie Prophet had reached the exit of
the cave and 6tood framed by tho rocks
and bathed by the golden sunlight
"Youare here," he cried, "here, as I
expected!" And he hastened out and
gave a hand to each.
"Any news from Louis Kyle?" asked
the captain as they followed the Prophet
into the cave.
"Follow me and you will see," said
the Prophet, still striding aheait
They followed, and as they went on the
light became dimmer, but so gradually
that they coold see the vaulted roof and
the supporting stalactitic pillars with
the greatest distinctut ss. Two hundrid
feet from the entrance the hall widened
into a chamber of such proportions that
the farther walls were but indistinctly
discernible in the "dim religious light "
In the center of this chamber—if such
tho splendid cathedrallike expanse
could be called—a fire burned on what
looked to be an altar, and about it the
indistinct forms of a number of men
could be seen. As tho captain and How
ard Blanchard neared the fire one of the
figures turned and came hastily toward
them. It did not need a second glance
to discover the handsome face and grace
ful form of Louis Kyle.
"Captaiu Brandon and Mr. Blanch- <
ard, '' ho said in a husky and troubled j
voice, "I met the Prophet this morning, j
and he told me all. I did what I could
to avert the blow I never dreamed that j
you had a traitor in your own camp. " I
"Our case is bad," replied tho cap- !
tain, still retaining tho young man's j
hand, '' and but for you it might have j
been worse Do your companions come i
to aid us?"
"They do. They are my father's !
herders, and there is not one of them '
who is not ready to die with me and for
me." replied Louis Kyle.
"Before another sun rises they will !
have a chance to prove their devotion. " |
"And you can trust me that they will j
not bo found wuntiug," responded |
"Come, my friends" said the P*<ph
et, "before doing more you must eat
and rest Of old the faithful lived in
caves, but it is no place recorded that
they lived without food. Come with me
and bathe. Nature has made ample
provision here "
Ho led them into a smaller apart
ment illuminated by two torches, the
red light of which fell upon a deep, clear

When the Prophet withdrew, Howard
asked Louis Kyle how he reached that
place with the Prophet and where his
"Two of my men are guarding tho
horses in a well grassed valley far up

know that I could not retrace my steps,"
"Did you not come through the can
"No; we entered a cave miles away,
it seems to me. We had no lights and
had to hold to each other's belts, the
Prophet taking tho lead How he ever
made his way through the Stygian
labyrinth I cannot explain. But here we
are, and only your presence assures me
that we nre not in another world "
They washed their hands and faces in
the pool and wero surprised to find the
water quite tepid to tho touch and some
what saline to tho taste. In less than
half an hour tho Prophet again appeared
and called to them to follow him. He
led them into tho place where tho fire
was burning and tho grateful aroma of
broiling venison filled the air On wood
en dishes ranged about tho altar they
found an abundance of cooked meats and
delicious trout. They would have set to
work eating with western promptness

his prisoners, informing them of tho
chargo and his intention to take Dr.
Blanchard back to West Virginia for
trial. Tho doctor tore up tho warrant
in his face, and indignantly denied tho
Tho doctor deemed an explanation
duo to those about him, and told tho
story of his life. With much shrewd
ness he guessed at tho plot iu which
Lawyer Bliss and his sons wero so deep
ly interested When tho doctor had fin
ished, sturdy John Clyde, as spokesman
for tho immigrants, said:
"Wo don't need your explanation,
doctor, to couviuco us of your inno
cence, Wo believe in you and aro ready
to fight for you, though wo ono and all
regret that our fighting will do no good
at this time But we can say this—we
do not propose to leave here till this
thing is settled "
When Dr. Blanchard became calmer,
he saw that resistance would bo useless,
and ho reasoned that Bouton would not
hesitate to enforce his command Draw
ing Alice and Clara to one side lie said:
"My children, there is nothing left
but to Buhmit to those men. Let us go
with them, and trust to heaven to shield
is from the harm they contemplate."
"Wo will go with you, father," said
Alice, with her arms about his neck
'Wo could not, would not remain back
Keep good heart and succor will come
I have faith in Louis Kyle."
"As I havo," replied tho doctor
'But let us bo getting ready. "
Believing that tho outlaws would not
dare to take them within reach of the
law, and hoping that a rescue would
soon come, tho doctor decided to leave
all his effects not needed fur immediate
use in tho care of John Clyde Clyde
and his companions having made up
their minds to remain where they wero
till tho doctor's troubles wero over, at
once began preparations for a jx-rma
uent camp Promptly at noon Bouton
came over, leading two saddle horses,
Patch following with a pack mulo in
tended to carry tho "outfit" of tho
"Doctor," he said, "you can ride
your own horse for tho present Come,
we are waning ror you.
The parting of the doctor anil his
daught' rs from the immigrants was sad
In the extreme. Tiie women clung to
Alice and Clara, and the men could not
chock thoir tears as they hold the old
man's hand. Ji hn Clyde helped Alice
ainl Clara to ui< unt, hands were waved
in adieu, and the march to an unknown
d sanation began. All Bouton's men
were in the saddle and waiting. Henry
Kyle, pale and r< ticent, was at the rear
of the liui, where the pack animals were
in readiness. The prisoners, for such
they were, were placed in the center of
the line. The cavalcade headed for the
south and s"on wound out of the valley
of the Blue Water.
Sim Bliss and his brother Tom, after
tho exultation over their success had sub
sidod, began to ask themselves how their
plans had Ixen furthered and what re
mained to be done for their perfection.
While the Bliss brothers were discussing
the situation Bouton's brain was not
"Mil children, there is nothing left but tn
idle. He rode apart from his men, his
head bowed and the reins dangling
from the neck of his horse. He had the
habit peculiar to men who live much in
solitude of thinking aloud, and on this
occasion his thoughts rail something
after this fashion:
"The Kyles and the Weldons are one.
There can be no doubt about that If
this dog, Sim Bliss, told me the truth—
and I think he did—the Kyles are the
heirs to that estate, and if they put in
an appearance the Blanehards would be
nowhere. If Henry and Louis Kyle were
both dead, that estate would belong to
their sister Nora and her husband, if she
had one. I am supposing now that Val
entine Kyle remains in exile, and ho
will if he's wise. The two Blanchard
girls are pretty as pictures, but so is
Nora The m.»n that gets Nora Kyle for
a wife will strike tho biggest kind of a
bonanza I think I see the gent lonian, i
think I see my way as straight as a
string and clear as a trout stream. "
Mr. Bouton straightened up in tho
saddle, drew in the reins and urged his
horse to that part of the line where
Henry Kyle wa« riding, evidently in
very low spirits
"A penny for your thoughts," laughed
Bouton, reining in and playfully slap
ping Henry on the back.
Henry Kyle half turned and asked:
"What do you propose to do with Dr
"I haven't thought ajjout them. I be
lieve the Bliss brothers are enough in
terested in their welfare to see that no
harm comes to them. "
"Tho Bliss brothers are natural born
protectors,'' sneered Henry Kyle,
"If you don't think they can fill the
bill, why don't you go in and give
them your services? Here you are in the
sulks instead of being delighted at our
success—at the success of your own
"lam so di lighted at the success of
my own plans that I feel like cutting
"Don't do that But why the feel
"I didn't join this outfit to make war
on women and children. If this doctor
and his son are prisoners and thieves,
let the Blisses pay us for our services
and take them away, though, to bo
frank, I think it a put. up job, and you
think tho same thing. "
"We never had any doubt about that
But tho young ladies—what would you
do with tli em?"
"lean tako them to a place where
they will be safe and well eared for."
"Where is that?"
"My father's house. *'
"I thought you wero never going
back thero again. "
"Then you thought wrong. My moth
er lives, and so long as sho lives she
will receive me, and I will seek her
"But supposing your brother falls in
love with the girl who has now your
heart?" Bouton chuckled and looked
out between tho horse's ears
"I shall suppose nothing. I havo not
been in the habit of considering tho ef
fect of my conduct My being here is
tho best proof of that Excepting your
self and a few men of tho same cast the
members of this gang are creatures of
impulse. Wo act, then think. "
Bouton bowed with a mock courtesy
and rode to tho rear of tho line, where
Font Robb and Patch had chargo of the
pack uiulea He gave them some orders,
then gallojx'd to tho head of the line,
t.-here tho young Shoshone, Black K:iglo,
had command of tho scouts He remain
ed with the Indians till the sun set.
By this time they had reached an
open valley, thr tn,/h which wound a
broad, shallow s r. . tn, tho banks lined
with cotu.uw-Kid and the grassy expanse
broken here and there by clumps of cedar
and mountain oaks. Bouton's trained
eye at once fell on the proper position
for a camp, and lie dismounted from his
horse. 11.- s nt a number of tho Indians

from tho packs provisions were taken
for the evening mcaL
Dr. Blanchard gave no thought to
himself. Anxiety for his 1. autiful
daughters rent his heart, and for the
time unmanned him. If hoc uld have
ha<l assurances of their safety, ho would
have willingly given up li s own life,
but such assurances could not lie
had. There was not in all the party a
man to whom he c uld look for help
Once, as lie saw Henry Kyle passing,
tho impulse ranic t > him to call to tho
young man and invoke his aid. Henry
Kyle looked t•> bo so different from the
others that the doctor imagined he
might lie bit tor, until he recalled that
it. was lb iny Kyle who had come us a
spy to their camp fin the plains and had
nft*-i*ward ln'trayed thorn. Whib* he was
thinking this over Claru laid her band
on his shoulder and whispered to him,
as if he read his thoughts:
"Might wo not apjieal to Henry

"Would you let me try?"
"No, my child I cannot permit yon

The doctor drew Clara lo h.s breast
and kissed her beautiful white brow and
left a tear on it
The Indian pickets wore recalled by
three rifle shots following each other at
regular intervals. Black Eagle and his
ten ludians were ravenously hungry—
the nomad Indian seems to have been
born hungry, and there is no authentic
record of his ever having eaten enough
| Bouton was too prudent to feed his
j braves all they could eat Ho caused to
i be set before them what he considered a
i "square feed." And when they had
finished every fragment and licked tho
: platters clean he drew the young chief
Blaek Eagle to one side aud said:
"Black Eagle, you are the bravest
man, white or red, in the mountains I
want you to help me, I want you to
take this white man, Dr Blanchard,
| away from camp tonight. "
"And where am I to take him?"
"I do not know, nor do I care, only
this—he must never be seen again. "
"Not even his scalp?"
"It shall be as you say. When am 1
"As soon as you can. "
"That will da "
"Good! My braves and I will rest.
Wako us when you are ready," said
He went over and lay down among
the dusky reuogades, and Bouton sought
out the Bliss brothers and sat down be
"Well," he said, with the expression
of a man who had got rid of a care,
"that point is settled "
"What jxiiut?" asked Sim.
"About the old man. "
"Going to send him off?"
" Yea "
"What will they do with him?"
"Lose him I" echoed the two brothers.
"Without the ghost of tho shadow of
a doubt. I wish we had the old man's
son in the same box. "
"But you are sure you can get him?'
This from Sim.
"I'm certain. Now, my friends, let
us rest till midnight "
Bouton drew off his boots, wrapped a
bhuiket about his shoulders and lay
down with his feet to the tiro. He was
soon asleep; but, though the Bliss broth
ers imitated his actions and attitude,
they could not sleep They lay side by
side, talking in whispers, mid starting
nervously when the wind, with stronger
force, shook the boughs above their
heads or contended with the murmuring
current near by.
They were awake at midnight when
Blaek Eagle came over and roused Bou
ton. They sat up and anxiously watched
the movements of the two men. The In
dians quickly saddled their horses, and
Bouton went over to where tho doctor
lay awake, on the opposite side of tho
tree from his sleeping daughters.
"Doctor," whispered Bouton, "1
want to speak with you. Come over to
tho lire, "
Anxious not to disturb his daughters,
but wondering much at tho man's mys
terious manner, the doctor obeyed him.
Instead of taking his victim to the fire,
Bouton conducted him to where Black
Eagle and his braves were standing bo
lido their horses. At a signal from tho
leader Dr. Blanchard was seized, gag
ged and bound on the back of one of tho
horses. So noiselessly was this done that
tho men sleeping near by were not dis
turbed The litho figures swung into the
saddl<>s and the dread cavalcade crossed
the stream and was swallowed in the
In tho Prophet's cave, where slept
Captain Briuidou, Louis Kyle mid How
ard Blanchard, there was no variation
of light to tell tho changes that were
going on in tho outer world. The
Prophet had that rare gift, an intuitive
conception of the passage of tima He
carried no watch, and he but rarely
looked up at tho sun, for which ho had
as Idolatrous a reverence as the fin* wor
shipers, who, in tho far back ages in
habited these mountains and kept their
sacrificial altars burning on tho highest
"Awake, arise! The Philistines bo in
our borders!" shouted the Prophet,
when the time allotted for slumber hiul
passed. At the sound of the deep sono
rous voice the men sprang from the
ground, some of them seizing their
arms in alarm. Howard Blanchard, who
was wholly ignorant of the methods of
this remarkable man, stared wildly
about him as if expecting an attack.
As the Prophet spoke he brought out
dried meat from tho recesses that honey -
oomlied the immense chamber, and set
ting the example he would havo tho
Others fellow ho ate heartily and filled
a pouch slung over his shoulder.
"See that your arras and ammunition

soul liveth, it will not faro well with
them who beset our paths in theso
"Wo aro all ready," said Captain
"It is well Now, that wo may ad
vance with more rapidity, I havo pro
vided torches. Hero are three." Ho
luuuhd tho captain, Howard Blanchard
and Louis Kylo each one. "Light them
at this altar. "
Thero was always a light burning on
the altar when a fire was not blazing
there. Tho Prophet lit four large earthen
lamps, and placing ono on each corner
muttered a prayer that sounded like an
incantation, then shouldered his rifle
and strode away in advance.
To Howard Blanchard it looked as if
their course lay into the heart of the
Titanic cliff that towered above tho •Mi
trance of tho cave, and such in truth
was the case. Oil they went past tho
fountain where they lind bathed that
morning, and along gloomy galleries
whose vaults the torches failed to reveal
and whose blaek glistening walls looked
like the mythical furnaaos of the lower
world in which the fire had Ism long
extinguished On and on and up and
up, through this awful temple of silence,
this cave of tho shadows, this hiding
place of night The lightest footfall
echoed and re-echoed farther and farther
off till lost in shadowy whispers. Up and
on, the ohnmliers becoming smaller and
tho passages or galleries shorter and
narrower, until at length the most slen
der had difficulty in getting through.
Without any premonitory glimmer of
twilight the Prophet led them through
a narrow opening und out into the gold
en sunlight and under tho d<-op blno
"Thank God for the light!" exclaim

tlio smoking fragments of his torch.

"The horses :uv near by in the

and within a mil*' lit- led them to a bowl

Captain Brandon, seeing the Prophet

"1 cannot command if you have a

"Leave my own plan to myself.''
The Prophet raised his hands in bene

hours the horsemen reined in on the
summit of u hill, uiul the Indian who
had been in advance extended his ami
and pointing down said:
"Sew the fires in Bouton's camp!"
"Let us dash on," said Howard
Blanchard, eager to hasten to the rescue
of his father and sisters.
"No, no, " said the captain. "Cool
ness, not impetuosity, must win. Wo
must find out the situation and all about
the force we have to contend with be
fore risking our lives. "
He was about to detail Louis Kyle
and one of the Indians to go into the
valley on the scout when all were star
fled by hciiring the approach of two
horsemen. Enjoining silence on the
men and drawing them back from the

horsemen from the valley halted about
the middle of the hill and 200 yards l>o

"Stay hero, while I find out who those
people are," said the captain, handing
his bridle to one of the herders.
Without another Word Captain Bran-
dou disappeared in tho darkness, and 80

not disturb tlio mormor of voices com

the gentle night wind that trsvayed tho

"Not long if all goon well. "
Before Howard could ask another
