grny, and when tho Federals bcan piling
rails on tho bridge she realized how Forest
would be balked by its destruction. Sao
ran, bareheaded, to tho spot and began pull
ing tha raiU oif, and it was only when two
men seized her arms and led her away that
she desisted. The bridge was held by the
Federals until its destruction was certain,
and they then retired into tho town. When
Forrest came up ho found his further advance
completely checked, and in his trouble ho
rode np to the fence where mother and
daughter stood and asked if there was no
ford. Emma remembered of a crossing half
a mile away, and at once offered to guide tho
general to it. Shells and bullets were Hying
all about them as they talked, but the girl
climbed upon the fence, sprang to tho saddle
behind Forrest and away the pair rode for the
ford. It was found practical le, and while
h3 selected his best men and horses for fur

That crossing led to Streight's capturo with
in a couble of days, and he was captured by
trickery. Forrest got a body of men ahead oJ
the Federals, who displayed themselves from
prominent points, and this, with aggressive
lighting in tho rear, led Streight to believe
that ho was being closed in upon by a largo
force. Forrest sent in a flag of truce and de
manded a surrender, claiming to have 4,000
men, and, after taking an hour to convince
himself that he was in a trap, Streight sur
rendered the whole command. When his
men cams to str.rk arms the' outnumbered
the Confederates eight to one, and had to be
kept quiet by bluster and further trickery.
