The Story of a
o By Brig. General
The sunshine of a glorious autumn
morning was Blunting along the valley
of the rawnoe, throning hold shadows
Into the flata and lighting the land
scape for miles with crimson and goid.
Tho dew sparkling on the wild "bull"
berry bushes, on tufted buffalo gross
and tiny flowerets mantled the bluffs
with diamonds and was still so strong
as to defy its one enemy, the sun Rod.
The frost bad smitten the scant foliage
n the banks of the winding stream,
and the leaves had donned their glori
ous hues, aettlng forth their richest col
oras the swan reserves Its song to
meet the universal conqueror. The
uilst rose slowly from the silent, shal
low pools, and from distant village ana
from tho neighboring heights the
smoke of chimney or cninpllre soared
straight to the skies. It was a morn
ing to send the blood lenping through
young veins and to brighten the eye of
age, a morning In which all nature
seemed to rejoice and all mankind to
thank God for the joy of living. Yet
In the midst of a scene of such peace
and health and hope tUere stood alone
man, still young, from whose face
hope, peace, even health, apparently,
had fled and whose attitude was one
of utter grief and dejection. lie was
leaning against a branching willow.
gazing Into the depths of the broad
pool of the Pawnee just aliove tho rap
ids with Uod alone knows what
thoughts seething through his brain.
when the silence of the morning was
broken by sudden, stirring sound.
Close at hand from tho willows serosa
the stream there rang out loud and
clear the call of a cavalry trumpet, fol
lowed almost Instantly by tbe appear
ance of half a dozen horsemen moving
at steady walk from a brenk In the
timber and descending the gentle slope
to the ford. Foremost rode a power
fully built soldier In the field uniform
of the United States horse. Ilehlnd,
side by side, came two young soldiers,
all three evidently ollleers. Then fol
lowed a brace of troojiers orderlies or
grooms and a Jnunty lad with the yel
low braid and glistening trumpet
slung from the shoulder. Straight
through the ford the leader splashed,
looking neither to right nor left, the
sunlight pei-ring under his hat brim
and cresting with gold his bushy eye
brows and bustling mustache. Straight
at his heels followed bis little party,
and then from the same opening In the
Willows there burst Into view the hend
of a column of cavalry, moving at the
same measured pace and with the same
erect and martini bearing.
At the first sound of the trumpet the
lonely figure at the edge of the pool
darted back out of view and. bending
low, stood where by (leering through
the bushes the column could lie kept In
sight, but when a moment Inter the
fluttering guidon of the foremost troop
came suddenly flaunting Into the sun
shine, all Its brilliant color Instantly
enhanced, some Intense emotion seem
ed to seize upon the lonely watcher.
Rising to his full height, with his
clinched hands thrown above his bend.
he whirled abont and. with an Innrticu
lute cry, sank like a stricken bull to
earth and luy face downward and bur
led In his arms, bis whole form shaken
Troop after troop, until the fourth
had passed, the squadron t russed the
ford and moved steadily up the south
ward slope, following a winding road
that led to the group of buildings
crowning the height, and still the
young man lay there. Over beyond the
low line of hi tiff to tbe west a cloud of
dust began to rise, and there was
sound of martial music. A tall flag
staff, looking like a slim white arrow,
pierced the sky line from that west
ward crest, and the little bit of bunting
fluttering at Its summit was suddenly
lowered, only to be replaced a moment
later by a s.rmtiol that told It was some
unusual occasion at the post, t:ie arriv
al perhaps of some dignitary of superi
or rank, and in confirmation of this
view, a the great garrison Ihig swung
up to the head of the staff, the earth
trembled and the hootn of a bnttery s.i
lute thrublHHl on the ear. Kven then
there was no change In the attitude of
the sufferer unless If were that he bur
led his face still deeHr In his nrins. but
all of a sudden he started, half raised
bis head ami listened.
Somewhere up si ream a clear, power
ful voice was shouting:
"I-angilou! Krlc. old chap! For
God's aake. where are you?"
Hurriedly the listener drew bis hand
kerchief bard across bis eyes, shaking

Presently the call was repented, hind

beats could be heard.

ly recognized both voice and name,

Yet lie turned again toward the river,

In the sunshine nt the edge of the tin

oflleer whoso brave blue eyes and rud
dy cheeks and fair, crisply curling hair
would have Invited more than a single
glance, while the grace of his, strong
jet slender form nnd hla capital seat iu

even among a score of his fellows. He
rode with utter abandon, leaping his
mettlesome, excited hurso over the few
obstacles along the fringe of willows
os though he and his Meed had wings
a:id this was caay as fiylr.fi.
"Eric! Eric I.niigtlon, I say!" ran,
out tho brave young voice once more,
and then, as a gleam of the sunshine
shot through tho willows, his eagerly
searching eyes caught sight of the lone
figure, the object of his morning scout
In nu Instant he had sprung from
"Erie you you" he began In al
most boyish eagerness.. "Stand where

spoke to his beautiful horse and then
unhesitatingly leaving him without

to the timber nnd to the side of his
friend. Whipping off his gauntlet, be
held forth his bared hand.
