THE RED STORM
Or the Days of Daniel Boone
The heart of Allan Norwood was not
weak Hud Irresolute, but strong In Its
resolves, am firm and persevering In the
execution of Its purposes. The events at
Boonesborough, In which Providence had
made him an actor, called out the latent
powers ot his mind, and stimulated hiui
to prompt and decisive effort In regard
to Itosalthe. Immediately after the de
parture of Logston, Captain Boone mini
moned some of the most experienced of
Ma little Rarriaon around him. to loam
their respective views in relation to the
Course moat proper to pursue under ex
fating circumstances. It waa finally de
cided that two or three persons of ex
perience should steal quietly from the
fort, to find the gentle maiden. Kenton,
Ballard and Allan Immediately offered
Ballard affected to retard our hero
with considerable contempt, for he prid
ed himself not a little on his skill In
woodcraft, and did not wish to be con
eldered on a level with those loss expert
who had perchance never followed a
trail or slain an Indian
"If this Ohio fellow goes with us. we
can't expect anything good will be like! I
to happen," he said to Kenton, in aJ
Toice sufficiently loud for Allau to hear.
"Why not?" asked Kenton
"He's got no knowledge of these kind
o' things. He wouldn't know an Indian
trail from a rabbit path. And as for
rifle shootiu', I don't suppose he could
bit the bigness of a man at fifty yards,
In firing as many times.
'Terhaps you underrate his abilities."
"That ain't by no means probable!" re
torted Ballard. "I'm called the shrewd
est reader of human character in Ken
tucky. I don't often make mistakes In
them kind of matters. The chap is too
quiet to be anything; he's got no cour
age, and If he has, he hasn't skill enough
to follow a trail. As sure as he goes,
somethin' will break."
"Quiet your apprehensions, sir," said
Allan, approaching the scout. "Do your
own duty, and If I fail to discharge
mine, the blame will not be attributed
"That's all very well," replied Ballard
unabashed. "I've heard people talk Just
ao afore, and then be off In the time of
"Come. Ballard, don't be hard; you'll
wound the young man's feelings," Inter
"Ugh!" exclaimed Ballard. Imitating
the short, guttural sound pecnliar to the
Indian tribes. "I reckon his feelln's
ain't much finer nor mine nor yours. I
etn't disposed to put my reputation on
level with a green hand like him."
The cool contemptuous manner and
' Insulting language of the spy thoroughly
aroused the Indignation of Allan. Keep
ing down, with a strong effort, the feel
ings of wounded pride and Impatience
tnat were rankling within, he stepped
forward and laid his hand upon Bal
lard's shoulder, and closing It until the
fingers seemed sinking into the flesh, said
in a hoarse whisper:
"Cease this foolish bravado; or, If yon
must quarrel, wait until we are outside
the fort, when we will settle It like men."
The features of the scout grew pale,
and then flushed with anger; be threw
savage look at Norwood, and grasped
the handle of bis bunting knife. Simon
Kenton Instantly seized Ballard's arm,
and wrenched the weapon from his hand.
"Are ye madmen!" cried Boone, who
appeared at that moment, and saw what
was taking place. "What means this?
Why are ye wrangling? Is there not
fighting enough to be done, without cut
ting each other's throats? Ballard, you
are always Urt fast. Your ill-nature will
cost your life, ultimately; but I will risk
this young man with you. No more de
lay off with you, and do the best oq
Everything being in readiness, the gate
was opened, the trio took leave of their
friends, and left the fort, followed by
the prayers and good wishes of all who
They proceeded down the river, the
scout leading the way In sullen and om
inous silence. It was evident that he
had not recovered his temper. He fully
resolved as he strode on, that Allan
should not accompany them, but return
to Boonesborough. or dispose of him
self in any other manner be saw fit.
With lowering countenance, and deter
mined air, he stopped, and returning to
Kenton, addressed him as follows:
"You've heerd my opinion about that
young chap from Ohio, and I mean to
abide by It, and act up to it. He may
go any way he pleases, and do what
be pleases, but be can't go with me
"This ix folly," exclaimed Kenton. "I
will vouch for Mr. Norwood's courage
"Well, If you like him, you can go
with him, and we'll part company," re
turned the scout, doggedly.
Allan had gained sufficient knowledge
of Ballard's character to enable him
to understand that prompt and decided
action was required.
"You have seen fit," said Allan, "to
Insult a stranger in a manner that Is
unpardonable, nevertheless, I will bear
no malice, if your conduct In future be
such as one man expects, In decency,
from another. If you wish to be on
friendly terms, I am ready and willing;
but If, on the contrary, you wish to
fight, you will not find me unprepared."
"You look like It!" was the laconic
"You are unreasonable," remonstrated
Kenton, in a milder tone.
"WeMl part company," added the
The scout being naturally of a very
obstinate disposition, it was Impossible
to change his determination; according
ly be shouldered his rifle and walked
away, thinking, doubtless, that Kenton
would follow him; but In this he was
mistaken; Kenton remained with Allan.
"Let him go," he added; "he's In one
of his contrary moods, and won't listen
to reason. What do you say to taking
"Tbat would be the best thing wt
could do if we had one," answered Nor
"There Is one concealed In the bushes
yonder; so we'll soon float it," said Ken-
The little vessel was dragged from Its
concealment, and the two young men
were soon gliding down the river. Nor
wood had not forgotten to Inform his
comrade about the circumstances of find
ing the spot where a canoe had evidently
been drawn up, and of the strange con
duct of Vesuvius. For several hours
they silently plied the paddles, always
keeping close to the shore.
They had reached a place where the
river made a sudden sweep to the left.
and was much wider, when a man ap
peared on the opposite bank and be
sought them in an impassioned manner
to come to his assistance.
Simon Kenton paid no attention to
his entreaties, which astonished Allan
very much, whose ears were ever open
to the cries of those in distress.
"What do you want?" asked our hero,
touched with pity by the frantic en
treaties of the unknown, and. apparent
ly, greatly terrified individual.
"I've escaped from the Wyandot:
they are after me, and I cannot cross
the river; come and take me off, if you
are Christians." returned the man, who
continued to run along the shore, wring
ing his hands as the boat passed on.
"Let us take him Into the boat." said
Kenton smiled, and shook his head,
and the man redoubled his cries, protest
ing that the Indians would soon recap
ture him If he did not succeed in getting
across the river.
'Toor fellow!" exclaimed Norwood.
"Come, my friend, this Is unlike you!
Are you not touched by the terrible
fears and miserable condition of the
"Not I," said Kenton. "This distress
is not real; it Is an infamous plot to
allure us to the other side. The white
scoundrel Is backed by a score of red
skins, no doubt."
"Are you really In earnest?" asked
"Perfectly so. You are laying a trap
to deceive us," said Kenton, ceasing to
use his paddle.
The fellow on shore solemnly protest
ed that he was not, but was acting In
perfect good faith.
How many Indiana are there up In
the woods behind you?" resumed Ken
ton, laying down his paddle.
The man swore that there was not one
there to his knowledge; but he expected
every moment the woods would be full
of them, when he, unfortunate fellow,
would perhaps be burned at the stake.
the subject of tortures impossible to de
Now back water a little, and keep
the boat steady, whispered Kenton
then addressing the fellow In distress
If we go ashore, you promise to play
us no Indian tricks?"
Not a trick," was the reply; and the
white impostor called heaven and earth,
and the Maker of both, to witness his
"Turn the boat quite round, head to
the opposite shore, so as to bring you
between myself and him," said Kenton,
In alow voice.
"What If he should prove to be no
Impostor after all?" remarked Allan.
Nonsense! Look! I can see a paint
ed face peeping from behind a bush.
Steady a you are. When I have fired.
drop your paddle and let fly at the, In
dian, if you get a chance.
The little boat now lay quietly npon
the water; and before the man on shore
perceived what was Intended, Kenton
raised his piece and discharged It.
The white man fell scrambled to his
feet and fell a second time. Allan had
kept watch of the red face behind the
bush, and the Instant Kenton fired, seiz
ed his own rifle and followed his exam
ple with all the celerity and precision of
a practiced hunter. The painted visage
disappeared, and a loud warwhoop re
sounded through the forest.
"You see I was right," said Kenton.
You have finished your fellow, and the
white renegade has got what he won't
get over in a hurry."
"His distress seems to be more real
now, onserveil Allan, as the wounded
man attempted to recover his feet for
the third time with no better success
While Norwood was speaking, several
Indians appeared on the bank of the
river, and our two friends were saluted
with a shower of balls.
"Load your rifles," said Kenton, cool
ly, "and I will pull up close to the shore,
and get as far out of range as possible.
Several of their balls, you see, have
touched the boat."
Simon bent smartly to the paddle, and
the tiny vessel shot rapidly through the
yielding waters. The young hunter re
loaded his rifle, while the bullets of the
enemy occasionally whistled past his
ears, splintered the boat, or, their force
being spent, fell harmless a few feet
Several of them are at work
In the water; I wonder what they are
doing?" said Allan.
They have doubtless sunk a canoe
there, and are now raising it; they In
tend to follow us."
"You are right: they are dragging a
birchen vessel from the water."
The canoe had left the opposite bank
and was now rapidly approaching, pro
pelled by four savages.
I hey are Mlamls," observed Kenton:
"we must sink them."
"But how? Rifle balls make but small
holes; we might perforate the bark In
dozen places below the waterllns and
not affect our purpose."
We have been trying some experi
ments st Boonesborough lately, with
balls linked together in this manner,"
replied Kenton, holding up two bullets
fastened together by a small chain
about eight Inches long. "These balls,
when projected from the rifle, separate
the length of the chain, and at the dis
tance of 150 yards will pass through a
board an Inch In thickness. ho y
perceive th.it it will not lake many such
shots to sink one of those en noes, f
they are not much thicker than brown
The Miainls swept toward our friend
with loud cries, thinking to terrify them

"I don't care so much about destroy
lug the poor wretches, as I do about
sinking the canoe." added Kenton. In a
suppressed voice. "Let us get the first
lire, If we can. Do you fear them?'
"I never was afraid in my life," said
The words had scarcely left Norwood's
lips when a shot from the savages cut a
button from his hunting frock.
"That was very well done." remarked
Keiitus), "They are near enough; let
us have a shot It's our turn now. Kirs
at the canoe, and you can't help doing
Both took steady aim, and the Indians,
anticipating their Intentions, endeavored
to screen themselves by ddglug their
heads down Into the canoe.
"That will only make It worse for
them," said Kenton; and then both fired.
The result fully equalled their expec
tations; the fragile vessel was so badly
cut that It Immediately filled, and the
Indians leacd into the w ater, some 'of
them severely. If not mortally, wounded.
In a few seconds the canoe sank.
Then the terrified Miamis made a great
splashing In the water, while those on
the bank yelled with race. The two
voting men grasped the paddles ami used
them with such effect that In hnlf an
hour not an enemy was seen or heard.
Having lauded, they tilled the boat
with large stones and sunk it. The sun
had gone down and darkness pervaded
the mighty forests.
"Come." said Allan, "let us go.
"(In where?" asked his companion.
"Anywhere." replied Norwood, hesi
tatingly, "to find Kosalthe Alston.
Kenton, who had seated himself on
the bank, arose and attempted to follow
Allan, but staggered a few steps and
"My dear Kenton, you are wounded!"
exclaimed his companion, running to the
heroic woodsman and raising his head
from the ground. But the gallant f cl
ow made no reply; he had fainted from
the loss of blood.

WOMAN'S WONDERFUL POWER.
Illustration of Chinese KmprfiiDon.
On one of our promenades In the
park I saw a curious Instance of tho
Chinese empress dowager's wonderful
personal magnetism and her power
over animals, says Katherlne A. Carl
in the -Century. A bird bad escaped
from Its cage and some eunuchs were
making efforts to catch It, when her
majesty and her suite, came Into that
part of the grounds. The eunuchs had
found It Impossible to entice the bird
back Into its cage; nor would It como
upon a long stick, with a perch attach
ed, which they held up near the treo
where It rested. The eunuchs scatter
ed at the approach of her majesty
and she Inquired why they were there.
The chief eunuch explained what thev
were doing and the empress dowager
said: "I will call It down." I thought
this was a vain boast and In my henrt
I pitied her. She was so accustomed
to have the whole world bow to her
that she fancied even a bird In the
grounds would obey her mandate, and
I watched to see how she would take
her defeat. She hnd a long, wand llko
stick, which had been cut from a
sapling and freshly stripped of Its
bark. She loved the faint, forest odor
of those freshly cut sticks and In tho
spring often carried one when she went
out. They were long and slender, with
a crook at the top. I used to think
she looked like the pictures of fairies
when (die walked with these long,
white wands. She would use thetn
for pointing out a flower she wished
the eunuchs to gather or for tracing
designs on the gravel when she sat
down. To-day she held the wand she
carried aloft, and made a low, hlrdlike
sound with her Hps, never taking her
eyes off the bird. She bad the most
munical of voices and Its Iliiteiiae
sound seemed like a magnet to i..e
bird. It fluttered and began to de
scend from hough to bough until it
lighted upon the crook of her wand,
when she gently moved her other hand
up nearer and nearer until It finally
rested on her finger.
I had tioen watching with breathless),
attention, and so tense and absorbed
had I become that the sudden cessa
tion when the bird flnnlly came upon
her finger caused me a throb of al
most pain. No one else, however, of
her entourage seemed to think this
anything extraordinary. After a few
moments she handed the bird to one
of the eunuchs and we continued our
I saw another Instance of the mag
netic power this time with a kiity..
One of the princesses, seeing one on
a bush, tried to catch it, but in vain.
Her majesty held out her hand to
ward the beautiful Insect, made a pe

ed It gently for a few moments and
then removed her fingers and the katy
dids made no effort to fly until she put
