"Oh, God! My Uttlt ont."
There was silence and anxiety in th
long range of winter camps shout th
gency. The Twelfth were gone, no-,
body knew just where; but over to th
north, over toward those frowning "Bad
Lands" all the more wild and treacher
ous now that the snow had filled every
rift and crevice, for the jagged surface
was one mass of pitfalls other battal-
ions of horse were also gone, and th
vigilant watch over those Indians still
clustering about their old haunts in tlx
Talley was redoubled. The heavier gum
of the field battery commanded the
moky lodges, the lighter pieces wert
away with the cavalry. The infantry,
muffled to their eyebrows, manned the
rifle pits and guard line and threw theit '
sheltering wings over the deserted
camps. For good or for ill. the crisis
was at hand. Whatsoever doubt had
existed as to the almost universal hos
tility of the Sioux was banished by the
events of the preceding week. The at
tempted ambush of Sergeant Ellis, ol
Berrien's advance guard, the attack
upon the scouts and couriers at the Por
cupine, and, lastly, the affair at the
Wolf, in which Brewster a second time
had gained distinction, all pointed un
erringly to one conclusion: whatsoever
might be their assurances to officials
high in rank, to agents whose power
would be at end were war to ensue, to
self constituted framers of public opin
ion, every soldier on the spot knew, and
well knew, that the Indians wonld be
peaceable only in presence of a formida
ble force of bluecoata. but that nothing
but ambush and massacre awaited the
whites who ventured forth unguarded
Up to this moment, however, of all those
gathered at the scene the only troops
which had had actual collision with the
Sioux were of Berrien's battalion.
Far away south at the Pawnee old
Kenvon had been doing his utmost to
till the aniious fears among the fami-
lies of the absent soldiers. There had
been lively excitement when the papers
arrived giving sensational details of Ber
rien's wound and of the affair at the
Porcupine, bnt it was as nothing to that
which prevailed over the tidings of the
imminent peril in which Mrs. Bernen
and Winifred had been placed. That it
was just like Mrs. Berrien to insist on
joining her wounded husband at once
was conceded by all. but opinions dif
fered as to the propriety of her course in
taking Winifred with her. This the
major ueciue.1 oy prompt assertion that ! Jugt get the little ones around you to

Stern and silent Rolfu is standing at
the bank of the stream, wearied enough,
yet certain that there is no rest before
them. On hi m us senior the command
has devolved iu the absence of the be
loved major now being tenderly nursed
and comfortably trundled homeward in
the warm interior of a Pullman. No
excitement, uo cheer attends the coming
of the column now at steady, soldierly
gait winding into the shallow depression.
Kolfe knows that without Farquhar aud

be worse than dcsjicraUon. He knows
that with Farqnhar his own position will
be only that of subordinate, and that he

he would conduct matters now. But !

water until he had learned to swim. 1
Orders to disarm bnt uot molest are '
simply something to be laughed to scorn.
