Tim lol tho horses nwny nml staked
thorn out where Ihoy coultl crop the
rlrh, dewy grass. After removing Iho
snddlcs ho followcil iho mulatto Kir)
Into Iho hut, nml I muld hour the mur-
imir of their voices. 1 endeavored to j
science, tie knew I wns n white wom
an: ho linil hoeomo convinced Hint I
was Klolse Hcuucnlro. Did you know
that, also?"
"I learned the truth on the boat,
from the same source where Klrhy oh-
address Klolse, seeking thus to uwnken
her to some sense of my presence, hut
she merely smiled mennluglossly,
lennrd her head wearily hack against
tho poles and closed her eyes.
It was n poor meal enough, although
It sulllced to dull hunger and yield us
some strength. Klolse succeeded In
choking down n few morsels, hut drunk
thirstily. It was pitiful to watch her,
and to mark the constant effort she
was making to fore the return of
memory, 1 had Klale luithe her face
with water and while, no douht, this
refreshed her somewhat she only
rested her head hack on my cont, which
1 hnd folded for a pillow, and again
closed her heavy eyes. Tho negross
Appeared so tired 1 bade her lie down
and sleep, and soon after Tim also dl.v
Appeared. I remained there alone,
guarding the woman I loved.
How were we to escape, burdened by
this helpless girl, from pursuit, which
perhaps had already started from Yel
low Ranks? At nil hnrards I must now
prevent this dazed, stupefied womau
from ever again falling Into the power
of Joe Klrby. That wan tho one fact
I knew. I would rather kill her with
my own hand, for I was convinced tho
fellow actually possessed a legal right,
which I could not hope to overthrow.
I Remained There Alone, Guarding the
Woman I Loved.
However It had been accomplished,
through what villainy, made no odds
she was hit wife, and could only be re
leased through process of luw. lie
could claim her, hold her In spite At
ine, In spite of herself. No Inlluonce
I might bring to bear would save her
now from this contamination. It would
nil be useless, n thing for laughter. Hit
signature of which Klrby had boasted
and the certificate signed by the
doad Uasktn.s, would offset any os
slble efforts I might put forth. There
remained no hope except through
flight outdistancing our pursuers : find
ing n route to safety through tho
wilderness which they would never
I must find nn unknown path, an un
traveled trail. Our only hope Iny In
bnflllng pursuit, In getting far be
yong Klrby' grip. I dragged the map
out from Its silk wrapping and spread
It forth on the ground between my
knees. It was tin latest government
survey, given me when I first departed
for the North, and I already knew
every line and stream by heart.
I became tfr Interested In the prob
lem as to entirely forget her presence.
Iiut. when I finally lifted my bead, our
eyes met, mid I Instantly read In the
depths of hers the dawning of recog
nition. "Who are you?" she breathed In
rreduously, lifting herself umui one
hand. "Oh, surely I know Monti-mint
ICnoz! Why, where am I? What has
linppencd? Oh, Clod! you do not need
to tell me that I liut you; I cannot un
derstand ubout you. They they said
you died."
"They mtiRt have said much to de
ceive you," and I bent forward to touch
her hand. "See, I am very much alJve.
Let me tell you that will be the quick
est way to understand. In the first
place I did not drown when the boat
wns smashed, but was rendered help
less and borne nway on the water. The
Adventurer rescued me ubout daylight
the next morning, and I was no sooner
on board than T was told how the keel
boat had been run down below on the
river during the night and that your
party bad ull been saved two white
men and two negross slaves. Of course,
I knew you must bu one of them."
"Then IFicn we were actually to
gether, on the same. boat, all tho way
up here?"
"Yes; I tried bard to find where you
wore concealed on board, but failed.
Klrby guarded you with great care
from all observation. Do you know
"Yes," she answered, ns. though forc
ing herself to speak. "I do know now.
I thought I knew then, but was mis
taken, I supposed It-might be bemuse
I looked so little like u negress, but
Umv I real lo It was, his own con-
tulnod his Information. Kl.slo Clark-
told me."
"Klslo Clark I Who Is she? How
did she know?"
"A free negross. who hnd been cm
ployed by Amos Shrunk. She was tho
other prisoner on tho keelbont when
you wore raptured, kept locked below
in the cabin."
"llow could she know who I was?"
"She did not. Only she was ixisltlve
that you could not be Iteno Ileauenlro., she know that Iteno. In com-'
pany with her mother, bad departed
from Shrunk' cnbln before those raid
ers came. The two had already started
for Heurdstown."
She sat upright, all lassitude gone
from her body, leanliu eagerly toward
mo. her eyes' alight with Interest.
"(June I Iteno escaped them!" she
exclaimed, her voice choking. "Oh, toll
mo that again. Was the girl sure?"
"Quito sure. She saw and spoke
with both the women before they left
In n wagon. They were on the Under
ground, bound for Canada, uud safety."
"I am so glad so glad." she said
simply. "Now I am strung enough to
hear tho rest, Lieutenant Knox. You
must tell mo."
"There Is not so much to toll, that I
am eock-surv about." I began slowly.
"Klrby had you securely hidden nwny
somewhere on tho second deck, while
this Clark girl had been locked Into n
stateroom above. I possessed such n
growth of bean! uud was altogether so
disreputable looking ns to be mistaken
for u rotistd out by tho bn.l's olllcers.

age. In this way I munnged to talk
with KMe. but fulled to locate jour

esliore. Then I followed, and a little
later suce-i'ded In getting you out of
Klrhy "s hands. That Is about all."
"Ob. no. It Is not j ou you came
too Into."
"loo late! Perhaps I may know
whnt you mean."
"Do you? Surely not to blnme me!
I I wish to tell you. Lieutenant Knox,
but but I scarcely know bow. It Is
nil so dim, Indistinct In my own mind
and yet I remember. Huve I been
"Without question. We have boon
riding nil night and you were strapped
to your horse. I'rohnbly you have no
recollection of this?"
She shook her hood In bewilderment.
"No; the last I remember I was with
Klrby nnd another man. He he was
dressed like n minister, but but he
was half drunk, and once he swore at
me. The place where we were wns a
little shack In the side of u hill, with
stone walls. Klrby took me there
from the steamer, together with a man
he railed Itnle Jack ISnle. They
locked mo In and left me alone after
dark. Then this other man. who
dress4i like a minister, came back
with Klrby. They had food nnd some
thing to drink with them, and lit n

ception. "Not quite so fast, young lady." he
said, stuttering n bit uud holding the

thar nil right. Just lyi ye say, an' thet

"No, you are not," I hastened to ex
