00PVRI0MT BY AMERIOAN PRESS ASSOCIATION, 1809
"Out of this, boys, find go for 'einl"
shouted the captain as he caught sight
of a large body of cavalry charging
dow n the elope.
It was quick work. The Indians had
been caught napping, and their only
idea was to get awa . In a quarter of
an hour the last one of them had been
chased out of eiht, and those who
counted up the corpses counted thirty
eight. Iu that struggle to wipe out the
wagon train the Indians lost, as was aft
erward confessed, a total of ninety-five
men, and their sole offset was one pris
oner. Joe had found the party in a grove
fifteen miles from the forks. They had
come ou as the nature of the ground
would permit, dreading that they might
be too late, and their arrival had at last
set the little band free. There was
cheering and shouting and wild enthu
siasm as the battle ended and the men
rushed to shake each other's hands.
Bess hud hidden herself in the wagon
to give thanks to God and indulge in a
little cry when some one sprang upon
the seat and held out his hand. The
figure was dressed as an Indian, and she
screamed in terror.
"Not a redskin, but Joel" laughed a
voice she was longing to hear.
"And you did this for for us?' she
stammered as she uio ;d toward him.
"For for us. but more particularly
for you," he replied as he seized her
What af Huntley? "
In the contusion and excitement no
one had thought of him, but aftoi mat
ters began to calm down n little his
friends began to make anxious inquiry.
He was last seen a moment before the
renegade was shot. The attack on the
Indians had been so sudden that many
of them had flod on foot, and it was
hoped that those having the prisoner in
charge would leave him behind in their
A search was made for two miles
around, but no trace of the captive
could be found. Hurried as they were
the savages had managed to run him
off. When this fact became generally
known more than one man sadly shook
his head and muttered:
"Poor Jiinl Better for him if he were
lying here a corpse!"
The party of soldiers and hunters were
anxious to get ou, and an hour after the
fighting had ceased the wagon train
moved out of the inclosure in good
shape, and with no fear of being again
molested for days to come, ilost of the
dead warriors were stripped of their or
naments, at least, while ann3 and am
munition were carefully gathered up,
No one thought of burying the dead.
The Indians would return for that pur
pose. If not, let the wolves and vultures
have their feast.
Let us trace the fate of Huntley. You
may be one of those who believe that
the Indian has been grievously wronged.
You may believe he has the sentiments
attributed to him by novelists. ou
may have read that the feeling of mercy
has a lodgment in his heart.
When the man rode out of the fort on
his scout he firmly believed that the In
dians had withdrawn. Ho was a brave
man. None but a brave man would
have periled his life to back his
opinioua in the face of the warnings he
received. When be rode out for half a
mile and turned to the left the last
doubt vanished. The Indians had with
drawn. He had made assertions and
proved his sagacity

Next moment, as he disappeared over
the crest of the ridge, he found himBelf
in the midst of a horde of Indians lying
in concealment. He uttered one loud,
farreaching shout of astonishment, and
was pulled from bis horse to be menaced
to silence by tomahawk and knife. But
there was no need to menace him.
A great terror seemed to have frozen
the blood in his veins. He could not
have cried out again had they pricked
him with their knives. He was dumb.
He was helpless.
The captive's signal of alarm hail been
heard and understood at the fort, and
the Indians, angered that their trap had
been exposed, now showed themselves,
and affairs turned as related in the pre

.iinching. The fear of death itself
makes but few cowards. It was what
would bo before death that broke this
3trong man down and held him in chains
of terror. He looked about him with
horror in his gaze. His bronzed face
jrew deathly white. His lips had that
bloodless, blue look which, the lips of
the dead carry.
It was not until he had been cruelly
beaten about that he partially threw
off the horrible incubus and seemed
trongth enough to go forward and make

leard his own voice, but he could not
Huntley had been mounted to be
taken away before the attack came. In
deed he and the two warriors guarding
him had already made a fair start to the
louthwest and were beyond pursuit.
After a ride of ten miles over the broken
round a halt was made at a grove
which appeared to be an old camping
ground. As the Indians fled before the
7engeance of the whites they made for
this grove, and at length all who had
jscaped death wero reunited here.
A score of tigers starvod for days
tould not have been in worse temper.
Wounded and unwounded alike thii-otod
for vengeance. Had they held hun
dred prisoners each one would have
been put to the torture, and yet the suf
ferings of all would not have placated
the defeated and decimated band.
They had but one.
Fifty enraged savages rushed at him
to chop him to pieces with knife and
tomahawk, but tlio chiefs restrained
them. A speedy death would be too
merciful and deprive them of antici
pated enjoyments. As soon as the scouts
posted ou the distant ridges signaled
that tho white men wero moving for the
forks there was no occasion for further
Huntley's demeanor had undergone a
change. That dumb terror which had
made a woman of him had passed away
and his own brave spirit had returned to
make a man of him. He reproached
himself for his cowardice in begging of
the fiends to spare his life. Ho thirsted
for revenge. Ho oxulted over their

and he will turn and fight them, even
with bare bands, and dio fighting.
A sapling was cut down and driven
into the ground for a stake, and a dozen
savages ran about to collect fagots for
Huntley's eyes blazed. His bonds had
become loosened und his guards were
watching the preparations. Uttering
the hunter's warwhoop and wrenching
himself free in the midden effort, he
twiatod a tomahawk from tho belt of
the nearest savage und began to lay
Ho could not escape. IIo realized that
he would bo quickly overpowered and
tortured with additional fervor for every
blow he struck, but he dashed here und
there with the strength of a giant and
the frenzy of a madman.
Craxhl Crash! Crush!
The Indians were taken by surprise by
the hunter's sudden break, and then
there was such a terrible chango in his
looks that they shrunk away appalled.
His whino of supplication hud changed
to shrill yells of defiunce; his eyes no
longer betrayed a terror stricken toul.
Swiahl Sweep! Crash!
He buried the sharp tomahawk to the
eye at every blow. He followed them
up as they fell away before him. Ai
they cried out in alarm he shouted in de
It was a momentary panic. They
could have Bhot him down, but the
chiefs kept shouting orders not to do it.
The frenzied and desperate man had
killed two and wounded three when he
was driven to bay and found himself
surrounded. He stood panting for a mo
ment with his exertions, while tho blood
dripped from the sharp tomahawk upon
the green grass.
To the right to the left in front in
rear the circle was closing in upon him.
There was no escape.
With lightniuglike movements tho
man swung tho tomahawk about him
cutting and gashing himself in a dozen
places, and as a rush was made he tot
tered and fell like some great tree which I
bad lired out its century and was weary
of further life. Blond was spurting
from several veins and urteries, and ore
he could be dragged to the stake and
bound life had fled. When this fact be
came known there was a general howl
of rage and disappointment, and a dozen
savages fell upon the poor body with
the fury of fiends. They scalped it.
They Beveled the head and kicked it
about for a football. They cut off
hands and feet and flung them about.
They hacked and cut und slashed and
gave themselves up to their devilish
passion fur blood and revenge, but the
poor body was beyond feeling.
For every Indian revealing the hon

a thousand skulking cowards.
For every redskin feeling tho setili
