The men were watching and listening
when a cry of alarm was heard from the
ridge, and a moment laterthe trainman's
horse came flying over the swell at his
fastest pace and made direct for the in
closure. "Poor Jim they've got him!" whis
pered the captain, as he climbed upon
the rocks to get a wide range of vision.
To be taken captive by hostile Indians
means more than death. Ayel a bullet
in the brain at the moment of capture
would be an act of mercy to the poor
Tlie captain rested it across the rocks.
The captain was right in his suspi
cions. The besieging force of savages, dis
heartened at their bloody repulse, had
quietly withdrawn behind the ridges in
hopes to lure the white men from their
OW a , n,,! V"
wagons were strung mt in line and
pressing forward, and then a charge
would have brought victory. The man
who volunteered to act as scout had be
trayed the plot. His willfulness would
cost him his life, but it would save
Two minutes atter that cry of alarm
had reached the men iu the fort the In
dians could be seen nil about them.
Concealment was useless, and the red
demons circled about the fort on their
ponies and kept up such a yelling that
one would have thought they regarded
sound as powder and bullet. They kept
up the hubbub for an tour, and then
dismounted out of rifio range to rest.
We shall hear from that renegade
before long," said the captain, as he
noted a crowd of Indians at a certain
point. "Have any of Jon men got an
old faahioued rilleV"
"1 nave, repneu a mm nameu reiera.
It's not only old srle, but heavy
enough to use as artilley. I brought it
along because I couldi t even give it
way at Brule."
The gun was fished ot of his wagon
and brought forward. It was the old
fashioned buffalo rifle, arrying a bullet
like a cavalry carbint and its owner
had brought along a fe? charges for It.
It had scarcely been taaea wtien tne
renegade stepped ovitfrom the crowd
with a white Hag and avancea to witn
in pistol shot of the f oi. Then ho halt
ed and sung out:
"Boys, you have ride a brave de
fense, but it's no use l trying to hold
out agiu us. Thar's cer two hundred
cf us yere yet, as you in see by countin
up, and you don't shor sense by holdin
"What do you wanof us'r" demanded
"Waal, when I tmmoned ye the
other day all we wa ed was fur ye to
turn back. Ye refied to, and ye've
killed a couple of walors and wounded
a lot more. We can lot ye ott quite so
"What are your tms?"
"Now ye begin tdalk sense. If y
want to walk out ai leave the wagins
and horses fur us I give ye my word
ye shall go in pe:3. That's lottin y
off powerful easy, Ing as the reds are
mad all the way thngh."
"Shan't wc- aluo lava our guns and
revolvers behind'," ked tho captain in
As to that," !lied the renegade,
taking him serioiy. "it might be a
good ijee. It wld show yer faith
"You capturedneof my men over
t.h riiltfei an hour o."
I "We did. Thus, we didn't capture
him, but axed biio stop with us for s
visit. He's injoj InsMiir as hearty as
"Let him con your nnmoers ana
come in and give! the figures. If you
are as strong as i say we may decide
We we coui't do that, ye know.
That's rayther m the rules of war.
However, the rut ye march out we'll
set him free to j ye."
"It's no use!" led the captain in de
cided tones, "'won't talk surrender
until the man cs iu."
The renegadturned to his friends
and held a brie'uncil, after which he
came forward y-
"Boys, I can'Jld 'em in much longer
no, I can't. must cum to terms
or take the conience-"
"Won't vouiase the man?"

we cant. It would only make one
more to fight us."
"Then go back to your friends and tell
them we'll shoot down every horse, burn
every wagon and shoot each other be
fore wo surrender!
There was a general howl of rage
among the Indians when this news was
communicated, but no movement to at
tack. A water hole in the bed of one of
the gullies furnished them and their
ponies with a limited supply of the
liquid, and they knew that the belea
guered white men could not obtain a
drop. It was only a question of time
when the climax would come. The red
skins were therefore content to pre
serve an irregular circle around tbe fort
Of a sudden each suffering horse
pricked up his ears, held his head high
and gazed intently toward the east.
"The soldiers!" whispered a dozen
"No rain!" replied the captain, as he
pointed to the sky.
All looked to see a black cloud loom
ing up over the ridge a mile away, and
in a moment there was a flash of light
ning and a heavy peal of thunder.
"Eain rain rain!" shouted the men
as they rushed here and there like so
many boys, but under the orders of the
cool headed captain the greater part of
them were soon at work to profit by the
heaven sent shower.
Everything which would catch or re
tain water was spread out on the ground,
while the canvas covers of the wagons
were arranged m folds and pouches.
They were scarcely ready when th
storm brjke. The rain poured down
copiously for half an hour, and by that
time all suffering had ended, and the
supply on hand was enough for three
"Let us give three cheors," cried one
of the more enthusiastic men as the
storm passed away and the Bun Bhowed
its face again.
"Hark!" whispered the captain. "The
gal is giving thanks to God. She it
t --M: Wa . should Drav instead of
The downpour of rain had shattered
tlie plans of the redskins. They could
no longer be held to the siege, knowing
that the climax was indefinitely post
poned, nor could the bombastic talk of
the chiefs bring them up to another as
sault. They were ready to go, but be
fore moving off they had one la3t card
to play. Better for the renegade he had
not meddled with it.
Huntley, the man who had been taken
prisoner, was now brought forward, the
white man holding out) arm and a stal
wart warrior the other. When within
speaking distance he said:
"Captain, they have got me, and they
declare that if yon don't surrender
they'll burn mo alive!"
"We are sorry for yon, JimP replied
the captain, "but you know what sur
render would mean. They would butch
er every man of us inside of teu min
utes." "But think of me," wailed the man in
sorrowful tones. "Think of the tortures
they will inflict before they kill me!"
"It's bad, Jim terrible bad! I'd give
an arm to have you inside with us this
"But I can't die oh, 1 can't die!"
shrieked the man.
The captain seemed to be thinking,
and the prisoner knelt down, clasped his
hands and wailed out:
"Captain, fur the love of God, do some
thing for me! Come out here and talk
it over and make them an offer. They'll
let you come and go safely."
"It is only a trap for you!" shouted
half a dozen voices at the captain.
"Aye, lads, 1 know it, but I'd take
almost any risk for poor Jim. llos
nigli scart to death, and seeing what s
in store for him, we can t blame him.'
Then raising his voice he called to
"Keep up bravely, Jim. We can't
help you just now, but the time may
come within an hour. Don't give up yet."
Few white men have been known to
fire on a flag of truce, no matter how
treacherous the enemy who bore it.
Huntley had been brought forward un
der one, and it was respected. Had one
lif tho trainmen gone out with a flag he
would have been shot down or made
prisoner, and the others ridiculed for
When the three had returned to the
lines tho captain asked for Peter's heavy
rifle. 1 had been carefully loaded for
the occasion, and the captain rested it
across the rocks and waited a minute
until the renegade came into view.
Every man in the incloxure held his
breath and watched for tho result of the
shot. It wan a niinuto before tho sights
covered 'lie renegade, but when the
rifle cracked he was seen to throw up
his arms and fall heavily to the earth.
There was a howl from the Indians
and a cheer from the fort, but both were
drowned in a volley of musketry, a
chorus of yells and the thunder of horses'
feft. The relief nartv bad arrived.

THE AHRE8T AT HAY CREEK.
Last Tuesday evening Bnrdette Wolf,
who murdered Mis Birdie Morton at
Mt. Tabor, walked into the B. 8. & L.
Cn.'e store at Hay oreek, and had a few
moment's conversation with Hod. C. M.
Oartwright in the presence of Frank
Sumrnerville and Henry Bmohtorf.
Soon after his entranoe Gns Detmcritig

readiDg a printed description which
tie bad in bis possession. He oalled Mr.
Cartwright aside and reading the de
scription to him went after Charley Vau
Houteu, and a shotgun kept at the ranob
for killing wildoats, to help identify the
man. While he was goue theex-seuator
re-entered the store and had some more
talk with the Btranger. Presently Mr.
Van Houten crime end tbe man who
needed identification pulled his hat
over his eyes and thrust tbe trigger
tiuger of his right hand into a cavernous
pooket that might have ootitnined any
thing from a rubber sling to a mountain
howitzer and began to devote a large
portion of his energies to the work of
keeping silent. Charley strolled aim
lessly through the vista intervening be
tween the row of nail kegs and tbe ofiioe
stove and aimed a few searching glanues
in the direotion of the downoost hat
brim, finally pioking up a newspaper
and starting away with a good night to

Priueville after tho sheriff, but accepted
the assurance that superior numbers nnd

work of the night. Trusty men were
stiitioned outside the door to preveut

show the"native hue of resolution" was
not "sicklied o'er with tbe pale cast of

and the lust whispered admonition had
been given, Mr. Cartwright stealthily
appropriated an unloaded derring from
a show oase, approached the stranger
and with the choicest flourish of a deputy
C. S. marshal remarked:
'Mr. President, I ah, exonse me.
Take that band from out the pooket and
immediately place it iu a horizontal po
sition, parallel to the tendency of the
stovepipe and in juxtaposition with the
dividing ridge which separates the region
of your breast pocket from that of tbe
cross in your yarn snspendors."
The band weut up and in so doing

shotgun issued simultaneously from an
adjoining room, and the faithful millions

"From Beaver oreek."

When No. 8 of tbe L. & N. pulled in

his oall is 23 iuobes. He is 86 years old
aud has a wife aud a baby two yi are old
with him. Mr. Jim Wells, formerly ot
tills city, is exhibiting him, and they are
ou their way to the Columbus Fuir.
Mr. Craig was too heavy to get on a
bed last night and hud to take a mat
tress on the floor. He is a good looking
man of fine intelligence, and bis wife i
very handsome. Montgomery (Ala.)
The Gazette well remembers Johu
Hanson Craig, at Danville, Iuil., when
he was oousnti rt-d the largest man in the
world, as his weight aud description
