A Story of the
By EDNVARD T. STEWART
Cormvullls liad surrendered, mul tlie
independence of the DnittM State wu
established. My regiment liad been
disbanded, and I was on my way to
my Iiuuie in Pennsylvania. I bad nel
tber burse nor money for traveling pur
poses and got on as best I could. si
curing a lift here and usiui; river mi
rents tliere. till 1 reached a point not
a dozen miles from home. There 1
found n friend, who got out bis coach
and blurted mo on the last relay be
tween Vorktown and my father's es
tnte. for 1 was sick and weary and
could go no farther.
I srartcd shortly before dark .and
bad made half the distance when the
coach came to a sudden stop, and a
voice at the wiudow cried out:
"Your money or your life!"
"Money I have none." I replied, "but
my watch is at your disposal."
Taking from my pocket a timepiece
that my father had giveu me and to
whose fob bung n dainty locket con
taining a miniature likeness of my
mother. I handed it to the roblier, who
without another word made off. his
horse's hoofs beating the road, the
sounds dying away in the distance.
I bad wen nothing of him through
the darkness, and all 1 had beard was
bis demand for plunder. Ity this I
judged that he was very young or that
his voice was pitched in a bigli key for
a man. since it laid noue of that gruff
uess to bo exacted In a robber. In
deed, there was a shrinking bi it that
would have led me to light for my pos
sessions had I been nnned.
X was a long while after reaching
home in recovering from the exposure
1 hi so long endured In the war of
independence and several wounds giv
en me by tl;e redcoats, but at last I re
gained my btreugtli and took sufllclent
Interest in what was going on about
mo to ask after certain friends I had
left when 1 .had Joined the army. It
was then that I learned what my cotin
try bad endured durmg the long war.
Tliere was little left to eat or to wear,
und many farmeiw had been reduced
to u pitiable condition.
Such times are prolific of crime, and
I was told that same persons of re
spectability had been reduced to get
ting a living in any way they could,
some resorting to robbery, while others
had been obliged to pilfer. This led
mo to think of the youngster who had
robbed me of my watch on the road.
One of the Hist visits I made nfter I
had regained my strength was. to the
Leslies. I liad a fancy that if any
families pulled through the hard times
they would be among the lot, for they
were rich in lands. But I found that
tho more laud n ponton had during the
Revolution the poorer he wuh left, for
the land was not productive, and the
taxes on It, being badly needed by tho
state, were rigorously collected. I
found Mrs. Leslie at home with her
younger children. Her husband and
oldest son had gone down in tho war.
Her daughter Madge, who, to tell the
truth, I wished ett ially to see, was
not nt home. When I nsked the moth
er tv she was tho poor woman
stammeicw -t several contradictory
statements, by 'Wi I knew tho girl
bad met with a nil.-;. i, I shuddered,
because I knew that g. .if wero tho
dangcrs.-fo young girls in times of war.

all our gains to himself w began to
pluck up spirit and start In for recov
ery. My father. In oider to help the
courage, of the others, decided to give
n ball, to which he Invited the country
gentry. There were some v. ho bad no
tit clothes In which to nppcnr on such
nil occasion, but they nil came in what
they had. Most of the women prepared
their own costumes out of old stores,
and but few wore gems.
On the afternoon before the ball I
was told that Madge Leslie hnd re
turned to her home, and I saw to it
that she received n special Invitation,
though this was not necessary since
no well bred person would be so rude
as to leave out any member of n fam
ily in an Invitation. When I hnd gone

how she would now nppcnr.
When Mrs. I.enlle was announced by
the servant at the door of th.o ballroom
she was accompanied by a tall girl who
was dnsed In more flnery than anv
other woman present. I soon learned
that she was Madge Leslie, nud I won
dered how. since luh- family had he
come so impoverishetl. she . had been
able to deck herself out so Mplcndidly.
I tippronehed her and was about to ask
her to dance wheu another man engag

nn ornament suspended to her neck by
a gold chain bobbed up nud down on
As soon its she was disengaged I
Joined her ami saw near by tho orna

I opened It, und there was my mother's
Madge pulsrt it little, but said noth

would not be observed und asked for
an explanation. She confessed that to
put food Into the mouths of her family
she hid taken to the road." Bhe had
not known that I was tho person she
had robbed of the locket and. since she
laid never opened It. did not know of
the miniature It contained.
I hushed tho mnttcr up. Madge re
