THE RED STORM Or the Days of Daniel Boone M By JOEL ROBINSON CHAPTER XXt. (Continued.! "1 nm not muster of mv own wife and chil.l," he muttered. "The one threat ens me. and the other refute to obey. All my plan are continually thwarted: I n in always to be opposed by both mother and daughter. AnJ so it Is with the Oirty affair. He Is (rood enough for Iniiis; and In that matter I will hare my way, In spite of resistance, threats, tears or entreaties." "You will never live to see Innis wed ded to such a false knave." replied Mrs, McKee. "The moss will gather upon your bones first." "He will soon own a great deal of land on the south aide of the Kentucky Hivcr." "Just enough to bury his rile body In!" said Mrs. McKee. "The Indians have promised it to him when Hoone.horough. Harrodsburg anil Iogrin are leveled with the ground, and not a white settler has a foothold In this country," rejoined McKee. "That time will never be." responded the Indian spouse. "The white stations will remain long after the red men have lost their power. The descendants of Daniel Hoone will build their houses in peace upon the graves of the Wyan dot, the Shawnee, and the Cherokee." "Accursed prophetess of evil! What will stop your dismal croaking? Your boding Toice sounds in my ear when any prest project is started that promises well to all eyes but yours. Even at this rery moment Hoonesborough may be in flame; for Oirty and Pit Quesne have already attacked It with hundreds of Indians." "They'll fail and go away like whip ped dogs," responded Mr. McKee. With a threatening glance at each, McKee arose and left the cavern. "Can Hoonesborough hold out against so many enemies?" asked Innis, after a pause. "Yes; It has always been able to de fend itself; why shouldn't It now?" re plied her mother. "Ing-Knife (Daniel I'.oone) is there, and he Is a very great warrior. The station can't be taken while he's alive. We will go up there and see what they're doing." "To Rooneslwrongh?" asked Innis. The Indian mother replied in the af firmative. In a short time they both Issued from tiie subterranean dwelling, and walked in the direction of the sta tion. CIIAPTEK XXII. The bold pioneers at the fort awaited with painful anxiety the return of the heroic women who had descended the slope to procure water from the spring. Eliza Ballard and Matilda Fleming were the two last of the party to fill their vessels with the sparkling fluid. While they were In the act of doing so, a half-dozen Wyandot, headed by Girty. rushed from the covert of the surround ing shrubbery, seized the two maidens, and in spite of their resistance and fchrieks, bore them away before the men at the fort were scarcely aware that was the first tor'ea?fze Tu1?y' tSeSei? misfortune ehat had befallen them. "Come on. men! To the rescue!" he shouted, running to the open gate; while several young men followed him with equal impetuosity. "Stop, I command you!" cried Daniel Boone, In tones distinctly heard above the confused tumult of sounds. "Away, away!" exclaimed Joel, with terrible earnestness. "I hear only the shrieks of those females. I listen only to their calls for help. Let me go I am desperate." "And if you go with those ready to follow you, who will defend the fort? Who will protect those who yet remain to us, and have equal claims upon our exertions?" replied Captain' Boone. "And what would it avail if we should attempt a rescue?" said Reynolds, who had been among the first to follow L.ogston. "We can effect nothing gainst hundreds of savages; we should be cut down In a moment, and thus would our lives be thrown away, with out accomplishing anything. Let us re main and trust the two maidens to the care of God." By this time the rest of the women were at the gate, which was instantly opened for their admission. Strange to relate, they had, with one or two ex ceptions, maintained their self-possession to such an extent as to bring with them the several vessels of water which they had procured. While they were entering, a strong body of Indians, among which were several Frenchmen, tried to rush In after them; but a well directed fire from the fort forced them to retreat, with severe loss. Joel Logston appeared unlike himself; he threw down his rifle and leaned against the stockades, gloomy, silent and dispirited. Daniel Boone attempted to comfort him. "Look," he said, pointing toward the parents of the girls who had been cap tured, "they are striving to bear their grief with Christian fortitude. They lire struj-''ling with Roman firmness to master their paternal instincts; to listen to the admonitions of duty; and bow to the utern admotlons of Providence. Be a man, Joel." "All this trouble has come of that Frenchman," said Logston, bitterly, "I've never felt right since he's been among us. It Is very clear to me that he's been not h i i ' more nor less thau a spy on us ever since he's been here, and you'll find it so." "Such remarks, Mr. Logston, are ex tremely offensive to me," said Mr. Al etron, 'I can't help It," retorted Joel. "I know I'm right, and have good reasons to say what I do. I never like to hurt nobody's feelings, nor nothing of that sort; but I do like to tell the truth, and to sea justice done to all. Why did Silas Girty apeak about this Le Bland,, If he didn't know this man, and what was he doln'T Your Frenchman talks a greit deal about making his fortlu' on Kentucky land; and I know very well bow as expects to make It. The laud he ha so much to say about Is rigM here where we stand; and if he ever pets It Hooneshorongh'll be a pile of ruins and he'll walk over our grave. That's what will happen. Mr. Alston, think of It a yon may. Twenty-four hour haven't passed since Girty offered me two thousand acres of land to Join the Ingins against the white station." "Le Blaiid has my friendship and es teem; nearer relationship, it Is well known, has been talked of. I still find it Impossible to believe all the dark im ports which I hear of him. I hope you will pardon me If I act the friendly part, until I have ocular evidence of his guilt." rejoined Mr. Alston. Daniel Roone replied that he trusted they were all willing to make a proper allowance In the case, considering how great had been his friendship for the man; but so far as hi own feeling were concerned he had no doubt of Le Bland's guilt. During the morning and the greater portion of the forenoon, the defenders of Rooneshorouuh were constantly em ployed in repelling attacks made at dif ferent points, and in many Instances conducted with much spirit and resolu tion: but about noon the assaults ceased altogether. While each stood at his post, trying to assign some plausible reason for this sudden suspension of hostilities, a white man was seen approaching cautiously, bearing a flag of truce. "It's Girty!" said Joel, raising his rfifle. "Don't fire," exclaimed Boone. "Let u hear what he has to say." Finding that he was not fired npon, Girty mounted a stump and addressed the pioneers as follows: "I have come to summon you to sur render It's no use for you to resist: if you surrender promptly no blood will be shed; but if you will not listen to reason, and give us Instant possession, we will batter down your works about your ears with cannon that we momen tarily expect; for, know that we are expecting not only cannon, but rein forcements, also. What can you do against such numbers? Nothing; every man of you will be slain." "Shoot him down." cried several of the foresters; but Boone bade them to forbear. "Perhaps you don't know me?" added Girty, with much pomposity of manner. "You have asked if we know you," said Reynolds, showing himself boldly. "Hear our answer; we know you well. We know you as the vilest of men liv ing; we know you as a cowardly rene gade, recreant to all that Is noble in the human character: we know you as a monster of wickedness, and as a blood stained villain. The name of Girty will be spoken of with contempt by all those who shall hear of his treachery in all time to come. I have a worthless dog that kills lambs; In stead of shooting him, I have named him Silas Girty, and he has never held up his head since; for he knows that everybody despises him. You talk large ly a i . m tc-iuioreements. What could you do with cannon? Such cowardly wretches would be afraid to fire them if you had ever so many. We also ex pect reinforcements; and it will be well for you to be off before they get here. Should you batter down our Btockades, as you pompously thraten, we are fully prepared for that contingency, for we have roasted a score or two or hickory sticks, with which we intend to sally out and whip you out of the country as we would thieving curs." Reynolds' sarcastic speech put the renegade in a towering passion. He poured forth a volley of threats. "I have two of your young women In my power," he added, "and it would be better for you to be a little more hum ble; but I shall enter your works ami pay you off for your insolence." "It's a thousand pities I hadn't made an end of you out in the woods there!" cried Logston. "How does your head feel?" 'It will never be well till yours Is out of sight. I shan't soon forget that mean trick you served me; It will go hard with you for that, Joel Logston!" re torred Girty. "Don't tempt me; you make a finq mark for my rifle at this particular time." said Joel, menacingly. "I m under a flag of truce," returned Girty. I wish you was under the ground!" added Joel, Impatiently. "Mind what you say. I warn you, for no human power shall prevent me from shooting you, if you provoke me further. What care I for a flag of truce, when it floats over the head of such a villain?" It was easy enough to be seen that Girty began to feel uneasy and fearful of consequences. If he was not more careful In his speech; he therefore pru dently addressed himself to Daniel Boone, and asked for an answer to carry back to his army. Pell your red crew and your ruf fianly French allies that Hoonesborough will never be given up while two sticks of it remain together," replied the pio neer, promptly. 'This is our final an swer; begone." Girty leaped down from the stump In rather undignified haste, considering that he was under a flag of truce. Shouts of defiance and derision from the fort fol lowed him until he was again with his friends. CIIAITER XXIII. Reynolds and Mr. Fleming were In the block-house nearest to the river. Andrew and Exquisite Ebony were standing within a few feet of them looking cau tiously through the loopholes. At dif ferent parts of the structure stern faces were seen, begrimed with powder and dust. Each heart felt that danger was pressing, and every pulse throbbed with anxiety. The attention of the plo ners was suddenly attracted by an ex clamation of surprise from Exquisite Ebony. "What now?" asked Daniel Boone. I "Will yer look der?" said Ebony. Right afort our eyes." "I don't see anything but the river," rejoined the capl-ilu, nft-r looking a llioincn from one of the loopholes. "Don't Jer et M:i: Itootic. it am changed lis color; it nm just like mud as one darkey is like nnilddcr," relumed Exquisite. The pioneer looked again from the block-hone, and the truth of the negro's remarks was nt once apparent. The waters of the Kentucky were no longer il their natural color, but deeply col ored us when, swollen with heavy rains, the loi se red soil is washed away. For ell Instant the pioneer was nt fault. "This is strange," he exclaimed; "what can you make of it. men? Ah! I un derstand it all! They are digging a trench; they intend to let the water in upon us!" "Yon nre right," sild Fleming, mourn fully. "Hoonesborough Is no better than lost." The pioneer looked gloomily at each other: they thought of their wive and children: brave men wiped away tear, that, perhaps, were never guilty of the like weakness before; but they were not selfish tears; they flowed for those un able to defend themselves from savage barbarity. "Girty must have put this Infernal Idea Into their heads," said Reynold. "Possibly not; for I heard Le Bland remark once, that Ibionesliorough might bo easily undermined, and the whole of us drowned out like so many rats," re plied Mr. Fleming. "De women folk won't have to go arter no more water," observed Ebony, philosophically. "No; de water will come arter detn," rejoined Andrew. "Dar's more of de mischief!" ex claimed Ebony. "So there is; they're shootlu" flatnin arrers at us to set the works on tire," said Joel Iogston. The women and children had learned by this time what was going forward, and every part of the fort resounded with cries and lamentations. Hus bands atnl wives, parents and chil dren, embraced each other tenderly, thinking that they would soon be parted forever In this world. "Death must come to u all In some form or other," said Boone, addressing the mournful and panic-stricken group, in a calm, subdued and solemn voice. "It is an Irrevocable law of God that all created beings should die. Seeing that death is something that cannot be evaded, it becomes us to meet it with firmness and Christian philosophy. So far as I am able to Judge, the term of our earthly lives is drawing to a close. I must certainly regard It In this sad light, unless some means can speedily be devised to thwart this ingenuity of our enemies. I enjoin upon you all to be calm In this terrible emergency. Let the women and children all take shelter In the block-house, and be careful not to encumber and embarrass their brave defenders. I desire implicit obedience, and If it is accorded, all may yet be well." The forester paused, and the effect of his words was Instantly obvious; the fe males checked their tears, and the men grasped their arms with fresh resolu tion. "Mr. Reynolds," added Boone, "take about half of our able-bodied men, gather up all the picks and shovels, etc., that can be found, and hasten to the enclosure on that side toward the river; if our foes mine, we must coun termine." This order was received with hmd cheers, and the plan was so promising that every man felt a new hope spring- i,r ii n in his imuom "Cut a trench eight feet wide and ns long as you can, within the stockades, and we will baffle them yet. Whilq you are digging, the rest of us will keep a sharp lookout that they don't set us on fire." To be continued. SOME NEW DELICACIES. Itooen Ducka and Fattened llena the Yotrue for Dainty Luncheons. Pate de fole gras must look to Its luurels. This delicate food the en larged liver of a goose has long beeu considered In a class by Itself us nn expensive piece le resistance imported from abroad. Now New York society has grown tired of the monotony of pute de fole gru.s, and the Ingenuity of French caterers lias been put to the test to supply a substitute, says the San Francisco Chronicle. As a result, the linjiortntlon of pou larde du Maim, or fat hen of Le Mans, Is growing rapidly. This bird, liko the Strasburg goose, spends the lust three or four months of her life In a box hardly big enough to permit her to move. She Is given plenty of food, calculated to make her meat tender and white and to create plenty of fat When fattened, such a hen weighs as much as a small turkey ami brings $0 In the New York market. Rouen ducks are also becoming very popular. They sell for $7 apiece. These ducks are treated much as are the fat hens of Le Mans. The polite name for them Is "canards do Rouen." Calvllle apples, which cost 1" cents to $1 each, and which are grown In Normandy and near Turenno, are prominent umong the absurdly expen sive fruits which wealthy New York ers now delight to eat. They uro grown with great care, each apple bearing a picture on Its thin, delicate skin, etched there by the sun. Tho pictorial design Is cut out of tissue puper and pasted over the apple skin, and the sun does the rest. Belgian asparagus, selling at $7 to $8 n bunch. Is also finding a ready murket In New York. An Imported pheasant, properly served with truflles, costs $10, but hundreds of them arc being Imported every week. Dlrd In the Hand, Kte.

A floor of matched tonrd Is laid on the strips. A hole eight Inches In diameter Is cut In tho center of this floor, and over It Is reversed nn old tin pan ten Inches In diameter, tho sides of the pan lelng punched full of hole to allow free circulation of heat. Over this Is placed a table two feet nix Inches square, with legs four niul a hulf inches high.

If the cows hnve been stabled nil winter they nre likely to tecotno un easy ns spring advaiu-es ami long for outdoors. It is an excellent plan to turn them out Into sheltered barnyards that nre clean and so arranged that the cold spring winds will not blow over them. Give them some roughage to munch over while they are out. If It Is not feasible to turn them out yet, then arrange the stable so they may have all tho fresh ulr possible without causing tho nlr to blow over them so they nre likely to catch cold. The win dow arranged so that It may lc opened and the ocnli)g covered by the muslin sash will furnish this air without draught better than anything else. Ks Ieclally give the cows sun If It can be done. If thero Is an open shed on the place facing the sun Into which the cows may le turned they will enjoy It Immensely. This little care Just n few weeks before they are turned out to gruss will help u (Tali's wonderfully. Uracil!- a Fence I'oat. Oftentimes It Is necessary or politic to curve the farm fence at a certain point, and those who have built such fences appreciate the dllllculty of set ting the post at the sharjM-st point of the curve, so that It will not pull over. HOW TO I1IIACK A t'CNL'K POST. Any of tho ordinary methods of brac ing do not seem to answer the purpose. An excellent brace may be inado by the following plan: Place the post In position, then dig a hole two feet (loop and about six or eight feet from the post. Obtain a heavy stone and fasten a stout piece of wire to It, long enough to reach to tho post and wrap around It two or three times. Then bury the stono In the hole, covering It with the soil and tramping the soil down tightly. The other end of the wlro Is thou wrapped about the post tightly and held In position with staples. It should be drawn taut It will not, be possible for the post to draw away from this brace under any ordinary conditions. The Illustration shows bow simple the plan Is. iMu t if C? 1 Mtirri Seed for Meadows. Taking one farm with another, there are few containing the soil nec essary to grow a prnlllablo crop of pure timothy bay, hence It Is best to use inlvisl seeds. What the mixture should be depends somewhat on the locality and the strength of the soil. Where cloer hay I mainly desired it mixture of iiIsIInO cloer and timothy gives splendid result, particularly on soil that Is Inclined to be wet. Fight pounds of clover to the acre Is the usual seeding for led clover, though on land that bas been In clover six pounds Is usually siHhVlent. A a rule, there Is Hot enough clmer hay grown on the farm. Valuable ns timothy Is for horses, the chcr bay Is ' much more valuable for a mixed lot of stock ; It suit the cows, sheep, calves and lambs better than either timothy or mixed hay. and Is very valuable for the poultry. Where there Is an iibund mice we would not hesitate to food more or less of It to swine as n varia tion In the roughage from corn stover. XXelahlna the Milk. There Is no good reason why the plan of weighing the milk to ascertain what each cow Is doing should ls put off until fall. Start In with the fresh cows and kep It up around to the time they nre dried off again, and one will then have a valuable record of results. A nelghlsir whom we Induced to try this plan several years ago was glad enough to get rid of one half of bis herd of eighteen cow and buy new ones, for he found that those he wold had been robbing him for year; In the case of two of them they were a jMisltlve loss while the others gave not enough profit In the twelve months to nn where near pay for the Hun n sinned In caring for them. The eyes of more than one dairyman have Iss-u ojMMied by this simple expedient of keeping il careful record, by Weight, of tho milk furnished by each cow for n given period of considerable length. This I necessary, for some cows nre small milkers In summer, others In win ter, and vice versa.- Imllanaisills ew . limiit Mllltlaa ,.!. Tho milking stisd on the average farm Is of little value, t'sually It Is nil affair with one leg, uhui which the milker balances himself so that ho can fall readily, carrying the pall of milk with film, should the cow move quickly. A stool that will not tip over Is readily made of a small Imx that Is strong The Imx should Im about fifteen Inches high, unless the cow Is built low. In which case the (m.x call be three Inches lower. It should te from twelve to fourteen Inches square to form a com fortable sent. Nail two cleats on the Inside of the Nix exactly eight Inches from the bottom, then tit a tvuch or shelf on these cleats, with one end ex tending out the HUlllileiit length and held III place with two legs. On this the pall Is sot, while the milker occu pies the top of the hot mid straddles the pall. This appllainv Is readily innde, Is Arm on the tbsir, and, except In unusual casit, no cow would ls llk- J7. i 4 AN IHKAI.

Either wild hay or timothy can be baled direct from the windrow, provld ed It Is In projH-r condition to he put In the barn; otherwise, not, says Wal lace's Farmer, Clover hay must be drier than either timothy or wild hay. We have never tested this on our own farms, but we have wen enough of It ill operation elsewhere to Justify us lu making this statement. We douht whether under ordinary conditions It will be practical, as the additional work would have to le done at a time when labor Is usually expensive. We do not know of any reason why this hay should not command fully as good a price on tho market as hay that has gone through tho sweat lu the stack. I'rune I'raeh Trees Low, The only rule to follow In pruning a peach orchard should be to keep tin tree as low-beaded us sisslble, says an exjsTt orchardlst ; to keep all growth from tho Inside of tho tree, as that growth Is away from the light and sun, and therefore weak and unable to bear good fruit. Cut out all the weak limbs and twigs from the Inside of the tree, so as to mliiil t the sun uud allow a free circulation of ulr through the tree. Cut back to one foot all tho top or up right growth of last year, thus keep ing the tree from growing too fall, ami enabling' It to carry heavier loads of fruit without breaking down, and to resist damage by wind, and allowing the fruit to be gathered with less trou ble and expense. (atlle That Are Immune. A discovery that may have an im portant place In the world's history, though of apparent trivial Importance la Itself, Is that native Japanese cat tle, under natural conditions, are free from tuberculosis, while cattle Im ported Into Japan appear to be highly susceptible. The significance of the discovery lies In the possibility that an Immune breed of cattle may be de veloped which, of course, would be a big victory lu the war being waged agatust the white plague.
