SYNOPSIS.—To the Kentucky
wilderness outpost commanded by
Jerome Sanders, In the time Imme-
diately preceding the Revolution,
comes a white boy fleeing from a
tribe of Shawnees by whom We had
been captured and adopted as a son
of the chief Kahtoo. He la given
ahelter end attracts the favorable
attention of Dave Yandell, a leader
among the settlers. The boy warns
hla new friends of the coming of a
Shawnee war party. The fort Is
attacked, and only saved by the
timely appearance of a party of
Virginians. The leader of these Is
fatally wounded, but In his dying
moments recognizee the fugitive
youth as his son. At Red Oaks,
plantation on the James river, Vir-
ginia, Colonel Dale'a home, the boy
appears with a meaaage for the
colonel, who after reading It Intro-
duces the bearer to hie daughter
Barbara ae her cousin, Ersklne
Dale. Ersklne meet a two other
cousins, Harry Dale and Hugh Wll-
loughby. Dueling rapiers on a wall
at Red Oaks attract Ersklne's at-
tention. He takes hie first fencing"
lesson from Hugh. Tandell visits
Red Oaks. At the county fair at
Williamsburg Ersklne meets a
youth, Dane Orey, and there at
once arises a bitter antagonism be-
W. N. U., Oklahoma City, No. 3+-1922.
The bully rushed. Dave caught him
around the neck with his left arm.
hla right swinging low, the bully was
lifted froth thfc ghound, crushed
against Dave's breast, the wind went
out of him with a grunt, and Dave
with a smile began swinging hlra to
and fro as though he were putting a
child to sleep. The spectators yelled
their laughter and the bully roared
like a bull. Then Dave reached
around with his left hand, caught the
bully's left wrist, pulled loose his
hold, and with a leftward twist of
his own body tossed his antagonist
some several feet away. The bully
turned once In the air and lighted
resoundingly on his back. He got up
dazed and sullen, but breaking Into a
good-natured laugh, shook his head
and held forth the buckles to Dave.
"You won 'em," Dave said. "They're
yours. I wasn't wrastling for them.
You challenged. We'll shake hands."
Then My Lord Dunmore sent for
Dave and asked him where he was
"And do you know the Indian coun-
try on this side of the Cumberland?"
asked his lordship.
His lordship smiled thoughtfully.
"I may have need of you."
"I am an American, my lord."
His lordship flamed, but he con-
"You are at least an open enein$\"
he said, and gave orders to move on.
The horse race was now on, and
Colonel Dale hnd given Hugh permis-
sion to ride Firefly, but when he saw
the lad's condition he peremptorily re-
"And nobody else can ride him," he
■aid, with much disappointment.
"Let me try 1" cried Ersklne.
"Youl" Colonel Dale started to
laugh, but he caught Dave's eye.
"Burely," said Dave. The colonel
"Very well—I will."
At once the three went to the horse,
and the negro groom rolled his eyes
when he learned what his purpose
"Dls hoss'll kill dat boy," he mut-
tered, but the horse had already sub
mltfted his haughty head to the lad's
hand and was standing quietly. Even
Colonel Dale showed amazement and
concern when the boy Insisted that
the saddle be taken off, as he wanted
to ride bareback, and again Dave
overcame his scruples with a word of
full confidence. The boy had been
riding pony races bareback, he ex-
plained, among the Indians, as long
as he had been able to sit a horse.
The astonishment of the crowd when
they saw Colonel Dale's favorite
horse enter the course with a young
Indian apparently on him bareback
will have to be Imagined, but when
they recognized the rider as the lad
who had won the race, the betting
through psychological perversity was
stronger than ever on Firefly. Hugh
even took an additional bet with his
friend Orey, who was quite openly
"You bet on the horse now," he
"On both." said Hugh.
It was a pretty and a close race be-
tween Firefly and a white-starred bay
mare, and tbey came down the course
neck and neck like two whirlwinds.
A war-whoop so Indian-like and
curdling that It startled every old
frontiersman who heard It came sud
denly from one of the riders. Then
Firefly stretched ahead Inch by Inch
and another triumphant savage yell
heralded victory as the black horse
swept over the line a length ahead
Dane Grey swore quite fearfully, for
It was a bet that he could 111 afTord
to lose. He was talking with Barbara
when the boy came back to the Dales,
| and something he was saying made
the girl color resentfully, and the lad
henrd her say sharply:
"He Is my cousin," and she turned
away from the young gallant and gave
the youthful winner a glad smile.
Again Hugh and Dane Orey were
missing when the party started back
to the town—they were gone to bet
on "Bacon's Thunderbolts" In a cock-
fight. That night they still were miss-
ing when the party went to see the
Virginia Comedians In a play by one
Mr. Congreve— they were gaming that,
night—and next morning when the
Kentucky lad rose, he and Dave
through his window saw the two
young roisterers approaching the
porch of the hotel—much disheveled
and all but staggering with drink.
"I don't like that young inan," said
Dave, "and he has a bad Influence on
That morning news came from New
England that set the town a quiver.
England's answer to the Boston tea
party had been the closing of Boston
barbor. In the House of Burgesses,
the news was met with a hurst of
Indignation. The 1st ot June waB
straightway set apart as a day of
fasting, humiliation, and prayer that
God would avert the calamity threat-
ening the civil rights of America. In
the middle of the afternoon my lord's
coach and six white horses swung
from his great yard and made for the
capitol—my lord sitting erect and
haughty, his lips set with the resolu-
tion to crush the spirit of the rebel-
lion. It must have been a notable
scene, "for Nicholas, Bland, Lee. Har-
rison, Pendleton, Henry and Jeffer-
son, and perhaps Washington, were
there. And *ny lord was far from
popular. He had hitherto girded him-
self with all the trappings of etiquette,
had a court herald prescribe rules for
the guidance of Virginians in ap-
proaching his excellency, had enter-
tained little and, unlike his prede-
cessors, made no effort to establish
cordial relations with the people of
the capital. The Burgesses were to
give a great ball in his honor that
very night, and now he was come to
The Two Backwoodsmen Had Been
Dazzled by the Brilliance of It All.
dissolve them. And dissolve them he
did. They bowed gravely and with
no protest. Shaking with anger my
lord stalked to his coach and six
while the/ repaired to the Apollo
room to prohibit the use of tea and
propose a general congress of the col-
onies. And that ball came to pass.
Haughty hosts received their haughty
guest with the finest and gravest
courtesy, bent low over my lady's
hand, danced with her daughters, and
wrung from my lord'a reluctant lips
the one grudging word of comment:
And the ladles of his family bobbed
their heads sadly in confirmation, for
the steel-like barrier between them
was so palpable that It could have
been touched that night, It seemed, by
The two backwoodsmen had been
dazzled by the brilliance of It all, for
the boy had stood with Barbara, who
had been allowed to look on for a
while. Again my lord had summoned
Dave to him and asked many ques-
tions about the wilderness beyond the
Cumberland, and he even had the boy
to come up and shake hands, and
asked him where he bad learned to
ride so well.
Before Barbara was sent home
Hugh and Dane *6rey, dressed with
great care, came In, with an exaggera-
tion of dignity and politeness that
fooled few others than themselves.
Hugh, catching Barbara's sad and re-
proachful glance, did not dare go near
her, bui Dane made straight for her
side when he entered the room—and
bowed with great gallantry. To the
boy he paid no attention whatever,
and the latter, fired with indignation
and bate, turned hastily away. But In
a corner unseen he could not withhold
watching the two closely, and he felt
vaguely that be was watching a fright-
ened turd and a snake. The little
girl's self-composure seemed quite to
vanish, her face flushed, her eyes were
downcast, and her whole attitude had
a mature embarrassment that was far
beyond her years. The lad wondered
and was deeply disturbed. The half
overlooking and wholly contemptuous
glance that Orey had shot over his
head had stung him life a knife-cut, so
like an actual knife indeed that with
out knowing It Ills right hand was
then fumbling at his belt. Dave too
was noticing and so was Barbara's
mother and her father, who knew very
well that this smooth, suave, bold
young daredevil was deliberately lead-
ing Hugh Into all the mischief he
could find. Nor did he leave the girl's
side until she was taken home. Ers-
klne, too, Iqft then and went back to
the tavern and up to his room. Then
with his knife In his belt he went
down again and waited on the porch.
Already guests were coming back from
the party and It was not long before
he saw Hugh and Dnne Grey hnlf-
stumbllng up the steps. Ersklne rose.
Orey confronted the lad dully for a
moment and then straightened.
"Here's anuzzer one wants to flght,"
he said thickly. "My young friend, I
will oblige you anywhere with any-
thing, at any time—except tonight.
You must regard zhat as great honor,
for I am not accustomed to tight with
And he waved the boy away with
such an insolent gesture that the lad,
knowing no other desire with an en-
emy than to kill him In any way pos-
sible, snatched his knife from his belt.
He heard a cry of surprise and horror
from Hugh and a huge hand caught
his upraised wrist.
"Put it back!" said Dave sternly.
The dazed boy obeyed and Dave led
Dave talked to the lad about the
enormity of his offense, but to Dave
he was inclined to defend himself and
his action. Next morning, however,
when the party started back to Red
Oaks, Ersklne felt a difference In the
atmosphere that made him uneasy.
Barbara alone seemed unchanged, and
he was quick to guess that she had not
been told of the Incident. Hugh was
distinctly distant and surly for an-
other reason as well. He had wanted
to ask young Grey to become one of
their party and his father had deci-
sively forbidden liim—for another rea-
son, too, than his Influence over Hugh:
Grey and his family were Tories and
In high favor with Lord Dunmore.
As yet Dave had made no explana-
tion or excuse for his young friend,
but he soon made up his mind that It
would be wise to offer the best extenu-
ation as soon as possible; which was
simply that the lad knew no better,
had not yet had the chance to learn,
and on the rage of impulse had acted
Just as he would have done among the
Indians, whose code alone he knew.
The matter came to n head shortly
after their arrival at Red Oaks when
f'olonel Dale, Harry, Hugh and Dave
were on the front porch. The boy was
standing behind the box-hedge near
the steps and Barbara had just ap-
peared In the doorway.
"Well, what wbb the trouble?"
Colonel Dale had Jnst asked.
"He tried to stab Grey unarmed sad
without warning," said Hugh shortly.
At the moment the boy caught sight
of Barbara. Her eyes, filled with scorn,
met his In one long, sad, withering
look, and she turned noiselessly back
into the house. Noiselessly too he
melted Into the garden, slipped down
to Hie river bank, and dropped to the
ground. He knew at last what he had
done. Nothing was SHld to hlra when
he came back to the house and that
night he scarcely opened his Hps. In
silence he went to bed and next morn-
ing he was gone.
The mystery was explained when
Barbara told how the boy too must
have overheard Hugh.
"He's hurt," said Dave, "and he's
"On foot?" asked Colonel Dale In-
"He can trot all day and make al-
most as good time as a horse."
"Why, he'll starve."
"He could get there on roots and
herbs and wild honey, but hell have
fresh meat every day. Still, I'll have
to try to overtake him. I roust go,
And he asked for his horse and went
to get ready for the Journey. Ten
minutes later Hugh and Harry rushed
JoyouBly to his room.
"We're going with your they cried,
and Dave was greatly pleased. An
hour later all were ready, and at the
last moment Firefly was led in, sad-
dled and bridled, and with a leading
halter around his neck.

It is intensely practical as a business car. For salesmen it will serve splendidly

It has the fine appearance that carries prestige, which is another point in its
