with Inr proper owner, but by special
arrangement sin was allowed to de
part with her brother, tin officer say
ing In would call for her by and by.
lie no doubt thought In had done a
meritorious act and gratified tin girl,
but tin sequel to the a ffai r proved ntlnr
wise. In a few days the chief called to
deliver tin beaVer skins and say that
his sister "was anxious to set her fu
ture husband." To please Inr, and at
the same time apologize for his seem
ing neglect, tne officer nought at tin
sutler's store a large quantity of beads
and several yards of squaw cloth and
red flannel, and sent them to the In
dian girl by her brotlair. So pleased
was she by these trifling present that
sin sent a special runner to the fort to
thank her future lord for his kind
thought of Inr. Tin officer now fan
cied that In was rid of her, and had
discharged all obligations she could
possibly have upon hlin. Imagine
then his surprise a few evenings after
wards, when he was riding near the
Indian camp, a tall, tine girl, dressed
fat a robe ornamented with a profusion
of rod, blue and black beads, suddenly
appeared In tin road in front of his
horse, and halted him.

moving Inr robe and drawing it about
Inr loins, "they lied ; I am not de

Tin sicbt that ureeted his eves was
not a modest one, but the child ot tin
foret seemed all unconscious of her
shame. As she stood tlnre her beauty
j glowing in tin ray of tin setting sun,

tin matter, ami plainly Indicated tint

He was off before sin could finish

Half an hour later, Spindle sat In

won his love a few years back. No

then, should he live? He (an hear the

out Into tin omnalr: the cataract
irllmmers in the distance, and tin
sound of Its waters soothes and fascin

why should In hesitate?
He moves toward it with eacer
bounds and determined purpose. Up

on tin edge of the precipice, far above
tin fall. He looks at the white tents
in tin distance ; hate Is blazoned on
every one of them. He looks at tin

on the whiter face of the cataract.
In a few days the chief called on the
officer to learn his intentions toward
his sister. Tin chief said his strange
conduct had brought disgrace iifnn the
whole family, awl in urged the officer
to claim Ids bride or give some satis
factory explanation ot ins uelay tn a
mailer so important. The officer sa hi
it was agalust tin rules of tin array for
soldiers to nave innuiu wives, ami in
could not think of making so line a
girl a concubine. Tin latter part of
the argumcit Uia not particularly Im

upon delivering tin girl to her proper

he pleased with her afterwards. ven
as a divorced wife sin could have some
honor in her tribe, but in bar present
status sin could wit her many uor be
given in marriasrc to anv one else.
An old frontiersman who was appealed
to, finally solved tin matter by declar

the officer could himself sell the girl to
anyone he might wish, a Indian
wives were an article of merchandise.
It was known a young warrior was
very fond or tin girl, and the officer ap
pealed to him to take his Italia n bride
off his hands. ' The warrior was will

any horse to give for her. After much
explanation, tin affair was settled by
the officer buying a pony and fwesent

it to the warrior, win, In turn, gave It
to enter, when tin
