Up from the gulch came tho Indians
but half n mile behind nnd again their
blood-curdling jells rang out upon the
air. On they Hew pursued and pursu-
ers nndltrown's heart sank within him
when lie noted that the Indians were
rapidly closing the gap between them.
Spurring his horse to Its greatest ex-
ertions n groan escaped from Cie sol-
dier's now bloodless lips for the ani-
mal began to perceptibly slacken its
Bpeed. His powers of ciulurauco were
almost exhausted and It was evident
that lie could go but little further.
The fort was yet two miles distant und
eenpe now bcehied impossible.
"Zip! Zip! Zip!" The bullets from
the rillcs of the Indians began to fly
by them.
Pulling the jaded horse behind a bar-
ricade of rocks which rose by the trail
Urown sprung to the ground and cried:
"Get into the saddle Alice nnd push
on toward the fort. Tor tho lovo of
God hasten nnd I may be able to hold
them nt bay xintll you ccnpe. Fly my
darling lly for not an instant must bo
To his utter amazement the brave
girl hi id from the horse's buck and
with pale but determined face replied:
"So Ned I will not leave you. You
risked your precious life for me! nnd It
would be cowurdly forme to desert you
now. If you must die here I will die
with you."
There wns no time for further urg-
ing for thu yells of the Indians now
camo to them with startling distinct-
ness as they rapidly came on. Gaining
a position from which he could seo
over tho rocks thu soldier leveled his
repenting ride nnd began to discharge
It with deadly effect.
tio unexpected wus thu flro thut the
Indians recoiled and springing from
their- ponies in confusion sought for
shelter lehlud tho rocks which dotted
tho mesa. From their cover they kept
up n scattering lire but their bullets
ilew harmlessly overhead or were llat-
tened against tho rocky breastwork
which nature had provided.
Veering cautiously over the bnrrlcado
the brave soldier watched his foes with
eagle eyes tiring whenever u feathered
head came Into view.
There came a cessation In the firing
of thu Indians and ho heard them call-
ing out to each other from their sepa-
rated positions behind the rocks and
surmised that they weru planning a
sudden dash upon their hiding-place.
His heart becamu as lead in his breast
for ho well knew that although his
rifle might do deadly work as they ad-
vanced they would certainly over-
power blm nnd death would speedily
In his eagerness to get n good shot
nnd thus still further intimidate the
savages he raised himself yet higher
ubovu thu rocks and the next instant
fell backward into tho urms of his be-
trothed the warm blood spurting from
a bullet wound in his breast.
"Oh Ned Ked you are hit! You nro
killed!" she cried In-agony. "Oh! my
ggsb.- r
sin: 1.00KKD ovKii tiik hocks.
God my God what shall I do? Fcther
in Heaven save him save him!"
With a great effort ho said:
"lie bravo Alice my love bo brave.
'Tls not much. I am only only stunned
a little. I will re recover in a In 11
Ills face grew deathly pale and
blood oozed forth from his pallid
lips. Alieo almost screamed with
fright und her voice trembled with
agony ns she said:
"Oh Ned my poor durling you are
dying. They havo cruelly murdered
you! Father in Heaven tnko mc with
With nn almost superhuman effort he
seemed to rally his fast departing
strength und said:
"I am not so badly hurt as you think
Alice und can yet protect you. The
shock of tho shot madu mu feel faint
but it has passed llnlso mo up In your
arms dearest so 1 cau see over the
rocks. I will yet leat them back.
They shall never harm you my be
loved liaise mo up. There now
rouso your hopes. Ah! bear their
fiendish yells! They think they have
us now but will soon learn their error."
Alice exerted nil ncr strength In do-
ing ns he requested nnd again his rifle
rung out as the Indians supposing he
hnil been killed were securing their
ponlci nnd preparing for a descont
upon the maiden. Again they sought
shelter lichlnd the rocks and resumed
their desultory lire.
Tho effort proved too great for the
wounded man nnd ho snnk bnck henr-
Uy into Alice's arms. She now became
almost paralyzed with fright ns she
gently let him down upon the ground.
He looked up into her hlnnchcd face
and with n smile so ghastly that It
seemed to betoken tho approach of
death said faintly:
"Why do you weep. Alice darling. I
am not badly hurt. I feel very very
weak hut it Is only only from
loss of blood. I will rally in a moment.
Kiss mc Alice. The pressure of your
dear lips will nerve mc me mo for
one mo more effort."
Shu pressed her trembling lips to his
and moaned:
"Xed you arc dying! You arc dying!
I can see it In your poor dear eyes.
Oh! must you die so cruelly and for
mc? Don't close your eyes darling
you frighten me so! I cannot lear it!
Speak to mo once ugain Ked! Oh! ho
is dying he Is dying!"
She gave way to her great grief in
tho most pitiful sobs. The wounded
man made a great effort to rally his
strength and feebly said:
"Alice do not despair. I I I I am
very very faint but I '
A fiendish yell from the Indians cut
short his speech and Alice 11 cold glit-
ter of desperation coming Into her
eyes laid his head gently on the
ground seized his rillc and with a
strnngc ring In her voice said:
"You defended me to your death my
lost darling. Kow I will defend you
till death calls mu to go with you into
the dark slindow?"
liaising herself she looked over the
rocks and to her amazement saw that
the Indians were hastily mounting nnd
rapidly reti eating. At the same in-
stant a rumbling sound from the direc-
tion of thu fort fell upon her ears and
casting her eyes In that direction she
observed a greut cloud of dust raising
In the air. Springing to the side of her
lover she cried:
"Oh! Xed darling If you arc yet
alive rouse yourself. The troops are
coming from the fort."
Hut the pale lips rehired to move
nnd the eyes were closed as if in death.
With a wild shriek of agony she raised
her hands aloft and fell across his
body asii troop of cavalry thundered
up to the spot Col. Sanford ut Its head.
When Private llrown regained con-
sciousness he found himself lying on a
cot in thu hospital with thu post sur
geon bending over him.
"How do you feel now my man?" the
doctor asked kindly.
"Very weak and faint sir. How
came I here? What Is tho matter with
"You have been very sick llrown.
Cau you not recall the past? Do you
not remember being wounded by the
"Wounded? The Indians? What In-
dians?" Hu looked up ut tho surgeon
in astonishment.
"Try to remember. Keclf you cannot
recall your desperate fight with the In-
dians from behind the rocks."
llrown elosed his eyes nnd endeavored
to collect his truant thoughts. Slowly
faintly and indistinctly at first but
growing clcnrer and clearer as his delirium-prostrated
brain regained power
tho rescue the desperate ride for life
and thu battle all came back to him.
"Oh! tell mc doctor was she was
Alice saved?"
"Calm yourself my boy. The least
excitement may yet undo till my work
In my efforts to save you. Miss Sanford
is safe with her father."
"God be praised" ho fervently said
great teurs of joy starting iu his pain-
dimmed eyes. "How long have I been
here doctor?"
'Tor four days. You havo been de-
lirious nil that timu and very nenr to
dentil but you have now passed the
crisis and there Is a good chaucu for
your recovery. You lire built of good
material llrown. That shot would
havu killed any ordinary man."
"And Alice doctor Miss Sanford
has she been to sec me?"
"lleen here to sec you Indeed? Why
the littlo witch will scarcely tuku timu
to eat and sleep but wants to sit here
by your side nil the time. Tho young
lady Is filled with grutltudo toward
you llrown for your heroism In rescu-
ing her from a horrible fate and the
whole garrison is singing your praises.
It was a brave undertaking my boy
a noble heroic venture successfully ac-
complished." A smilu of gratification spread over
his pale wan face. Ho cared not for
thu laudations of the people of tho gar-
rison. His Alice had been near him
and that was worth more to him than
would havo been the plaudits of thu
"llns Col. Snnford asked after me
doctor?" There was an eager look on
his face as he put the question.
"Col. Sanford calls to see you several
times a day llrown. You cannot real-
ize thu dangerous position in which
your care places me. Tho colonel has
given mo thu most emphatic ordeisto
save your life und says if 1 let you die
ho will at once havo inu taken out nnd
shot- Now you see tho peril which
confronts me und you must do nil you
enn to hasten your recovery by implic-
itly obuying my orders. You must not
speak another word. You have talked
too much already. You must remem-
ber my life Is ut stake my man."
lie smiled knowingly as he referred
to the colonel's blustering threat.
There was n smilu of perfect peace and
satisfaction on tho palu fneo of the
wounded man ns he closed his eyes to
re licet over what tho surgeon had told
him. Alieo was with him almost con-
stantly and of course it must Iks
with her father's consent. And tho old
commander himself called several
times dally to ask after him. This
knowledge wus sweet to his soul and
ho felt supremely happy. Gradually
his senses grew more und more in-
active and lie soon sank into a sweet
refreshing sleep the first since ho had
been brought into thu hospital. Tho
surgeon bent over him und noted hi
strong regular breathing and boftly
felt his pulse.
"Hxeclleiit! Excellent!" ho said to
himself "llrown my bruve loy you
nro worth a whole regiment of dead
men yet."
When Col. Sanford found his
daughter onco more safe in her home
ho acted In n rannner that at times
almost made her fear he was losing his
reason. He w ould call her many times
n day to come to him nnd clnsplng her
closely In his nrms ns If ho feared she
might ngaln be taken from blm would
weep like a child nnd mutter praises
nnd thnnks to Heaven for her dellver-
nncc from death. The old man's heart
was filled with joy immeasurable nnd
the light of love wns never beforo so
bright ns now ns he gazed upon her
lovely face.
The day following her return he
called her Into Ills business office and
"Sunshine that young scapegrace
saved you from God only knows what
fntc nnd I must rewnrd him. I wnnt
you to tell mc all you know of him
from your first meeting to the present
"Papa dear may I not give it to yon
in writing?" she asked a slight flush
suffusing her face.
"Yes daughter that's military.
Make a full report to me In writing
nnd place it in my hands nt the earli-
est possible moment. Give your old
bear of a father 11 kiss nnd get to work
on your ofllcinl report at once dear."
Shu kissed hlrn once twice thrice
nnd ran uwuy to her room. Her pen
flew over the paper with great rapidity
as she fully freely wrote down every
detail of her relations with the pri-
vate soldier from their first meeting
until tho present moment. She told of
his enlistment being ignorant of the
fact that tho colonel had gotten a full
report of that from Private Lannan
told of their many meetings of mutual
love nnd of her urgent appeal to llrown
to go to her father and tell him all
and nsk his sanction to their engage-
ment. Nothing wns withheld nnd
when the statement was completed
she took it to her father's office luid it
on the desk before him kissed him pas-
sionately and ran away to her room
her young heart throbbing with anx-
iety. That afternoon he sent for her and
when she came in hu softly said:
"Sunshine I have just written a
detailed report of your capture
and rescue to tho secretary of
wnr nt Wnshlngton and of course
fully advised htm of that j'oung
profligate's action in the matter. I
have made certain recommendations
regarding him which I trust will be
considered favorably. My orderly is
nwuy on un errand und I thought yov
fl ;
might like to lake a hand In the pro-
ceedings by yourself mailing tho re-
port. Take It to the post office dear."
He had never spoken to her more
tenderly and In the knowledge that
ho had read her paper nnd was fully
cognizant of all that existed be-
tween herself and Drown his kind-
ness of tone and tender expression as
ho looked into her face filled her heart
with n great joy.
"Did you recommend his discharge
from the service papa?" she asked.
"Thut is no affair of yours little
chatterbox" he replied. "You should
not try to pry Into official business. If
I want to get thu rascal out of the
service It Is nobody's business but my
own. Go mail the report nnd then
come back to me. I want to tnlk to
When she returned she found her fn-
ther sitting on tho porch reading a
late paper. Shu sat down near him
and wnlted for him to open up the con-
versation her heart throbbing wildly.
Furtively she glanced at his face but
it was us calm as a summer day. Finally
he looked up nnd said:
"Sunshine I have just been reading
a story here of u young girl of about
your age who like yourself was
brought Into great peril. She was
penned in n burning building in New
York nnd a bruve fireman at the risk
of his own life rushed Into the blind-
ing smoke up tho blazing stairs and
lowered her from her chamber window
with n rope. In attempting to descend
he fell nnd was badly injured nnd was
taken to a hospital. Thut joung girl
belonged to a rich aristocratic family
and the fireman wns u poor obscure
fc'low no higher in the world per-
haps than an ordinary private soldier
and she went to the hospital nnd
nursed him nnd cared for him us lov-
ingly as if lie had been her equal in
thu eyes of the world until hu recov-
ered. She was a noble girl Alice and
damme she done just ns 1 would have a
daughter of mine do under like circum-
stances." Ilo threw down tho paper and
inarched abruptly into the house leav-
ing her staring after him in wonder.
She picked up tho paper herself to
rend tho interesting story. She
glanced hurriedly over the prominecit
headings but taw nothing referring to
n fire. She then turned her attention
to thu minor nrtieles but tho Item re-
ferred to seemed to bo hiding from her
eyes. From page to page shu turned
but only to Hud her search fruitless.
How could she hnvc overlooked a story
which had caught her father's eye? Ite-
ginnlug nt thu top of tho first column
of tho first page she went carefully
over the paper column uftcr column
scanning every paragraph until tho
bottom of the last column wus reached.
There was not In tho whole paper a
word about a girl being rescued from a
burning building.
Then a great light seemed to break
in upon her. A half joyous half wond-
ering look camo over her face then
vanished beneath n smile of the most
iuteiv'o delight.
"Just ns I would havo a daughter of
initio do under like circumstances."

Next to tho fruits we eat no other
part of our food is more healthful than
the succulent green vegetables of the
irarden. We can not nil have gardens
it our back doors and Hie next best
thing is to insure ns regular n supply
of fresh vegetables as we can com-
mand. With modern facilities of transporta-
tion our supply of fresh green vrgeta
blcs throughout the entile year is now
assured. Kren for people of very lim-
ited means a supply may now bo hud
from March to December. In a proper
supply of the commercial vegetables
we may find relief from many of the
disorders which impose suffering and
misery whose intensity no drug will
permanently relieve and no nostrum
guarantee complete exemption from.
The numerous kitchen garden plants

All the kitchen garden dainties
known to thu well-supplied city mar-
kets of the Atlantic seaboard are cap-
able ot greater variety of treatment
than they ordinarily receive in tho
average housohold. If no great diver-
sity of cooking should be practiced on
asparagus cauliflower spirach peas
and Brussels sprouts more simple
sauces might be made with cream egg
and salad oil than is now made with
butter and flour. It Is about time Hint

'be used for these purposes.
In the selection of garden vegoUible-
growers of their own stock are always
careful to take such pease only as nro
ready. Nearly all tho market peaso
one finds nre mtxed as to agu and size
so hopelessly that they are not at all
enjoyable. Peaso need to be gathered
ns they ripen und not in the mechan-
ical routine In which they nro usually

clearing tho land by the acre in a
strictly consecutive order. Hero lies
nil the dlfferenco between the Kuro-
pcan and the American grower.
Another important feature of the
kitchen work Is tho prcdomlnnnt prac-
tice of having the wuter in which the
grcco stuff is to be cooked nt a lower
temperature than boiling undnotsoft-
enlng the water with a little soda to
preserve color.
One reason why Hrussels sprouts and
broccoli do not receive more attention
Is becr.use so few people know how to
gnther and market them properly and
to cook them In water properly pre-
pared. These things need water at
boiling point and softoncd with soda
ns for pease; beans carrots and tender-leafed
cabbago require just as
rareful treatment ns the other arti-
cles. Vhatever of tenderness and en-
joyment there is In Uno vegetables
