J. C. Lightner, 703 So. Cedar St.,

from kidney trou
bles brought on by
daily work. "1 first

ten years ago," said
Mr. Lightner. "The
dull pain in the
back fairly made
me sick. It was
hard to get up or
down, hard to
straighten, hard to do any work that
brought a strain on the back. I had
frequent attacks of gravel and the
urine was passed too often and with
pain. When I used Doan's Kidney
Pills, however, all traces of the trou
ble disappeared and have not returned.

A maiden approached tha station, and
Reynolds and Joel Logstoa hastened to

was Innls McKee; she entered, pale
and agitated, and asked to be conducted

To sare you all from destruction: the

Innls with 'Increasing fervor.

"You have acted nobly, and all these
helpless women and children will thank
you; and not only they, but these gal

ors," said Boone feelingly.
Don t you know anything of the two
young women who were carried away
by Girty?" asked Joel
I have seen them," returned Innls.
"Perhaps somethln' can be done to lib-
erate the gals," suggested Joel. .
"I think so," replied Innls.
'The affair of the treaty must first be
attended to," resumed Boone, recovering
his wonted serenity of

in the block-house we will station nur
sharpest shooters. If they attemDt to
seize us, let them shoot down the first
who lifts a hand."
"Very good," said Logston.
"They'll object to meet you within
sixty yards of the fort," said Reynolds.
"Then we will not attempt to treat
with them," returned the pioneer. "Now
the next question to be decided is, when
shall we meet them?"
"To-morrow morning," said Reynolds,
"for by putting It off to that time, wc
may have a more quiet night, and obtain
"The Idea Is a happy one," rejoined
Mr. Alston. '
"Mr. Reynolds, take a white flag,
mount to the top of one of the cabins,
and tell them we will meet them to
morrow morning early, In order to fix
the terms of a treaty," added Boone.
The night which followed was by no
means a quiet one, as the pioneers had
hoped; for there was much firing and
bravado on the part of the savages. In
the morning the overtures of Girty were
renewed, and considerable parleying en
sued. He said Du Quesne was at the
present time absent, hurrying up the re
inforcements and cannon, but would be
with them by noon. Girty ' affirmed,
moreover, that Du Quesne left highly In
dignant that his merciful offers were so
obstinately and foolishly rejected; find
the moment of his return would be a
signal to batter down the works, and let
four hundred furious savages upon them.
The scene that would inevitably follow,
he would leave to the imaginations of
the good people of Boonesborough.
"If you have any regard for me,
cap'en, I hope you will let me fire," said
Logston, In a persuasive tone.
"Be patient, Joel," returned the cap
tain. "The measure of his stns Is full and
runnin' over," added Logston.
Girty ceased speaking, and nothing of
Importance took place on either side un
til a little past noon, when he again ap
peared, with the announcment that Du
Quesne had returned, and the cannon
and relnforcemets had reached them,
The noble captain had commlssiond him
to say that the following persons would

which would be final and decisive, and

Girty had disappeared, and In about
an hour McKee came out and affirmed
that Du Quesne, still considerate and
merciful, had finally concluded to accede
to their most unreasonable terms, and
would meet them within sixty' yards of

cniers and leaders of the exnaditlnn
would Hear what they were wllllnir tn

Captain Boone stationed his men In

Enjoining It upon the men to. observe
well their instructions, the gates were
opened and the three men passed ont:
and their friends who remained watched
their footsteps with Intense Interest.
They were met within the specified dis
tance by a numerous party, among
whom were three Frenchmen, Girty, Mc
Kee and several chiefs.
"That does not agree with my notions
of a friendly and honorable treaty," said
Reynolds, .who, with his rifle at a loop
hole, was observing all that was trans
piring. "There are too many there;
they mean no good; keep a sharp look
out." A discussion of considerable length
now ensued; and so far as those at the
station could judge by appearance, ev
erything was going on in the most
amicable manner. But Reynolds did not
relax his vigilance; he declared thnt on
this occasion he would not be deceived
by Indian cunning and French duplicity;
and the settlers being left under his
command, he ordered every man to cove
with their rifles the bodies of those near
est the captain and his associates and
not to take their eyes for a single mo
ment from the sights.
The wisdom of this advice was soon
apparent The good humor of the
Frenchmen and the principal warriors
seemed to increase. Innls McKee drew
near to Reynolds and looked eagerly
"They will shake hands soon," she
said, "and that will be the signal for
Innis stood pale and anxious at a
loophole; for she had at that Instant
caught a view of the form of her father,
and he was very near Captain Boone.
Reynolds quickly perceived her aglta
tion and guessed the cause.
"Don't fire at McKee," he said, in a
low voice to his comrades.
"I thank you very much!" exclaimed
Innls; "for I know he does not deserve
mercy at your hands."
"The service you have rendered us,
fair Innls, justly entitles you. to consid
eration," replied Reynolds.
"Alas! he is so different from what
I wish him to be, that his death could
scarcely shock me more than his life;
and yet I cannot see him within range
of your rifles without a feeling of hor
ror. Look! look! they stretch forth their
hands!" cried the maiden.
Instantly the women screamed with
alarm, for they beheld the captain and
his men seized by the savages; for the
moment they had extended their hands
they were grasped by the powerful war
riors, who attempted to drag them
A desperate struggle had already com-

slight wounds, and panting with exor

"Llttlo-Turtlo has gone under, I rather

"We will leave you to draw your own
inferences from what has Just hap

"Did you see Captain Du Quesne?"
asked Mr. Alston.
Captain Boone colored, and seemed
pained and emharrassod.
