She thought a moiiuMit. A faint had
dT p;i-eii over tier.
"I don't want to know your eecret."
"Will yon tell your mother what you
hare dutcovered?" aked Mark auxiouuly.
"Not for worlds."
"Yon HUHuwt" He paused and
looked at her inquiringly.
" Ye, yen. Don't say any more. Don't
breathe another word. Only go away
from here an noon an possible."
"1 shall go tomorrow morning. 1
hall always hold you iu grateful re
membrance. You are a splendid a
lovely woman. I owe you"
"Y'es, yes; go go curly."
She rose and went into the house. In
a few minutes a colored boy came out
aud told Mark that he would show him
to hU room. As Mark had been there
before, lie know this meant that he was
txpected to retire for the night
As he went by the parlor he glanced
In. The mother sat by a lamp on a
"center table" reading. Miss Fain'a
lacn was abio bent over a book. It was
bite as the margin of the page she pre
tuuded to read.
When Mark went dowu stairs the next
tioruing, followed by Jakey, they were
Invited into the breakfast room. Laura
Pain was there, but her mother was not.
Mark looked at Laura, but she avoided
lis gaze. He asked after her mother.
"Mamma scarcely ever get up to
breakfast," she said as she poured out
l substitute for coffee.
During the meal she said but little,
tnd that was only on commonplace sub
jects, tihe seemed to have more on bet
bind than the soldier who was taking
bin life in his hands, aud atudiousl
avoided looking at him at alL
Jakey ate heartily. Mark noticed him
tatiug with his knife and otherwise dis
playing his humble origin, while he was
himself eating like a gentleman. He
thought that it was lucky Mrs. Fain was
not at the table.
After breakfast Mark followed his
Bodtetw throngb a door opening into a
sitting room on the opposite aide of the
hall from the parlor.
"Miss Fain," he said, "I know too well
the station of your family and southern
ustoms not to accept as a gift the hos
pitality you have afforded. I can only
i press my indebtedness, and the hope
that some day the war may be over and
1 can come down here and show my
gratitude for something of far mora
moment to me than a night's lodging."
He paused, and then added:
"May 1 ink a question? Are you a
Vuiou or a Confederate girl?"
Mark looked at her uueasily.
'I inferred from what you said last
night that you will not betray me."
"I will not."
"But you think you onght to."
I'jirk stood gazing at her. She was
lo king out of the window with a trou
Miss Fain," he said, "you may be
doing wrong; you may be doing right.
At any rate yon are acting the part of a
woman, and this act makes you in my
eyes the lovelieat woman that lives."
The words were scarcely spoken when
the muscles of the girl's face contracted
faito an expression of horror. Mark could
not understand why his speech had so
affected her. The natural uncertainty of
kid iiositiou impelled him to look abont
him for the cause. Glancing out of the
front window he saw an officer in gray
uniform on horseback in the act of reach
ing down to open the gate.
"Now go if you can" shit tald.
"Come, quick!" she said, Beizing his
arm. "No, no! Mamma! She doesn't
know. Oh, what shall we do?"
Mark took her by the hand and spoke
to her coolly, but quickly. "Call Jakey
for me, and we will both go down stairs
and from there to the barn. We can
then go out without meeting this officer,
for he is dm.biless coming in. There is
no especial danger. We shall meet plenty
of soldinrs Wore we return.'"
She flew out of the room to find Jakey.
Whiie Khe was gone Mark watched the
approaching horseman. Jle was a fiuo
sueeimeu of a southern man tall and
sienavr, wuu long oiuck nair. iiuimhciiu
and goatee uud a tine black eye. He

"Why, Cameron!" she excluimed,

"Was there a special reason?"
"Certainly. I positively nmldn'tRtand

we are momentarily expecting orders to

' "But yon will be uearer to us then,
won t you?"
"1 am alruid not. Once on this side
we'll not stop uearer than Dallas or
Foe's. We may join Colonel Forrest
near Sparta, or wherever he may be,

rear. He seldom troubles the Yankees
in front. But you are not listening, my
darling, and you are pale. You are not
"You are sorry that I earner
"Why, Cameron, what do you mean?
You know 1 always want you to come."
She led the way into the sitting room,
from which Mark had disappeared but
a minute before a minute is a long
while sometimes. Mrs. Fain entered
and received the guest most graciously.
Captain Cameron Fiti Hugh was a
young Virginian, a graduate of the Uni
versity of Virginia law school, the sou
of wealthy parents, whose acres and ne
groes were numbered by thousands. He
had known the Fains before the war,
Mrs. Fain having been born and reared
in the Old Dominion. During a visit of
Laura to his jieople, shortly before the
breaking out of hostilities, he had fallen
in love with her, had proposed and was
accepted. Both families being agree
able, the two were engaged to be mar
ried. "This is an unexpected pleasure, cap
tain," said Mrs. Fain.
"1 did not suppose 1 could get away
"Everything is unexpected in these
times. We never know who is coming
tons. Last night I slept uneasily for
fear that we harbored a guerrilla iu the
"How is thatr asked Captain Fitz
"Where are the strangers, Laura?" ,
"I think they are gone, mamma."
"A countryman and his little brother,"
(aid Mrs. Fain to the captain. "Laura
thought him quite a gentleman for one
so poorly dressed."
"But I changed my mind, mamma.''
said Laura quickly.
"And what was the occasion of so
sudden a bouleverseuient?" asked the
"Why why, when we were sitting
on the veranda after you went in, mam
ma" "Sitting on the veranda with a coun
try mau!" exclaimed the lover.
"Well, yes; mamma said to invite
him up. But 1 was going to say"
Laura's Inventive powers had gained
time to act by the interruption "I
found that he was only an iguorani
farmer after all, for 1 asked him how
far the moon r as, and he said he reck
oned it was a hundred million miles."
"That doesn't prove anything," Fitz
Hugh remarked. "I don't believe there's
an officer in my regiment knows that
But it becomes us to be very careful.
The commanding general has made it
known unofficially through his staff offi
cers that he is especially desirous of con
cealing his intentions. One spy pene
trating for even a day at Chattanooga
might frustrate all his plans. If the
enemy knew that we are concentrating
there, and how weak we are there at
present, he would or at least he should
come down with a large force and drive
A troubled expression crossed Laura's
"Indeed!" said Mrs. Fain. "1 was
not aware of that. Suppose the young
man was a spy."
"Cameron," said Laura. "1 wish yon
wouldn't talk so to mamma. She will
be suspicions of every poor beggar that
asks a crust. The man's name was Slack
There are plenty of Slacks among the
poor whites about here. 1 have a sick
family of that name on my hands now
not a mile up the road."
"Has the fellow goner asked Fitz
Hugh. "1 think 1 would letter see him."
"Gone! of course he's gone," sai
Laura, with a heaving bosom.
"Where did he say he was going?"
"To Chattanooga," said Mrs. Fain.
"I'll mount and follow him. 1 can
easily overtake him on horseback."
"Nonsense," said Lanra, with a pout;
"yon have kept away from me for a
week, and now you are going as soon as
"But, my darling, would you have
"1 would have you Btay where yon are
Mrs. Fain, seeing that some cooing was
coming, wisely withdrew.
"And what, sweetheart?"
"Tell me what I love to hear." she said
"I've told you that so often you should
certainly be tired of it by this time."
Fitz Hugh looked inquiringly into her
face as he smoothed back her hair. He
was iiM'ii M i.i m- re.;ucsld in repeal Ills
acsnrances nf at': di'in, but there was
a nervous wneeiiu.i about his fiancee
this morning that puzzled him.
His back was toward the window,
while she was facing it. Suddenly she
clasped her arms tightly around him
"Now go if you can!" she said, affect
ing a playt u! tone.
"Why. Laura, what does this mean?"
he asked, astonished.
"You don't love me," she whined.
"Love you. pet! You know I do."
"Then why do you act bo?"
"Yon never come anymore but you
want to go right away."
"But. sweetheart" a half down kisse
for exclamation points "I only intend
being gone a little while."
"If you once start out to follow some
body you don't know anything about
you'll be gone all day, and then you'll be
ordered away, aud maybe I'll never see
you tiny moro."
Never was a lover more charmed at
such evidence of woman's affection, and
never had this lover less cause to be
charmed at the evidence of his hold
upon Laura Fain. Had Captain Fitz
Hugh seen what Laura Fain saw from
the moment she put her arms around
him and held his back to the window
Mark and Jakey going down the walk
to the gate he would have exclaimed:
"Oh. woman, thy name is perfidy!"
"Oh, woman," the departing soldier
would have responded, "thy name is in
deed perfidy, bnt how glorious thy per
fidy!" CHAPTER VI.
LN THE ENEMY'S LINES.
Mark hnndetl thevltd whiskered ferry
man tlie crixp ten dollar note.
"Jakey," said Mark as they passed be
hind trees that hid them from the honse.
"1 don't like that officer coming to the
Fain plantation just at this time. There'll
surely be some mention of us, and it is
possible he may want to have a look a'
us. You know, Jakey, we're only poor
modest people, and don't want to be
"We ain't got onr store clothes on.
and don't want ter make no acquaint
ances," Jakey observed solemnly.
Mark had noticed Laura Fain's agita
tion when she caught sight of the officer
at the gate, aud knew there was good
reason for it. He did not fear that she
would betrs him intentionally, but that
she might t led to do so from her very
anxiety to keep his secret
"The first chance we get, Jakey, we'll
take to the woods. We told them we
were going to Chattanooga, and if this
officer takes it into his aristocratic head
to escort us with true southern polite
ness a part of the way he'll expect to find
ns en the Chattanooga pike."
"N" twouldu't be perlite fo' ter git in
They had gone but a trifling distance
when they came to a creek flowing as
a wayfarer they met told them through
Moccasin gap. The road crossed it by
something between a hedge and a cul
vert Mark led the way from the road
np the creek and began to climb the
hills, on which there was sufficient
growth of timber to afford concealmeut
For an hour he trudged along with
Jakey beside him. He tried to get the
boy to give iim his hand to help him
along, but Jakey demurred indignantly
and kept his sturdy little legs so well at
work that he never once fell behind bis
At last they came to a hnt occupied
by an old negro.
"Good morning, nncle!" said Mark.
"Hev y' seen anything of a colored
boy 'bont eighteen years old go by hyar
"He's my boy Sam, and Fin a-hnnten
him. He run away last night. He'll git

"Thet's the way with you niggers,

"De Lo'd hes sent 'cm to tote his col

Mark was satisfied with this prelim
inary examination that he could trust
the old man.
"Uncle, I'm no secesh. I'm a Union
man. 1 want to stay with you today
and travel ionight. Keep me all day.
and I'll go away as soon us it is dark."
"Fo' de Lo'd. 1 knowed yo' wa n t uo

'Yo' ain't got de south'n man s way o'

"Well, will you keep u.?"
"Reckon 1 will."

"You're as well off iw the president of
the Confederacy in that respect," said
Mark. "1 guess we'll co inside."
i eft, go in uar Keep oar.
Mark ami Jakey waited for the day to
pass, and a they had no means of amus
ing themselves it passed very slowly.
Jakey played abont the creek for awhile,
bnt both weie glad when the darkness
came nnd they could get away
Before setting out on his expedition
Mark had carefully studied a map of
the "region, preferring to fix it in his
unnd than to carry it about his person.
Upon leaving Jefferson Randolph's hut
ne made direct for the Tennessee river.
; Ouce there, he know from his remem
brance of the map that he was uot far
from Chattanooga, aud that betweeu
him and that place was Moccasiu point,
formed by a bend, or rather loop, in the
river, the jtoiut putting out southward
j for more than two miles, with a dis
tance of uearly a mile across its neck.
But he knew the ground was high on
, the east shore of the peninsula, and he
did not know the proper place to strike
j inla..i and cut off the distance around
j the river's margin. There was no one
near to inform him, so he kept on by the
It was late at night when they reached
a point where the river took a slight
tnrn to the east, and about a mile from
the quick bend around Moccasin point
Marx was anxious to enter Chattanooga
either late at night or soon after day
light, hoping to meet few people, that
his entrance might not be noticed. He
cast bis eye about for some means of
crossing the river. Noticing a skiff
moored just below a hut, he surmised
that the skiff belonged to some one liv
ing in the hut. Uoiug to the door he
"Do you tins own the skiff on the river
"Waal, supposen 1 does?"
"1 want to cross."
"Whatd' y want terdothet fur at
this time o' night?"
"Father dyen. Just got word a spell
" What'll y' give ter get over?"
"What kind o' shinplasters?"
"Whar d' y' git "em?"
"From some people ez got 'em traden
with the Yankee sojers at Battle Creek."
"All right, stranger, but it's a sight o'
bad times ter be called ter a man's door
at night. You uns go down ter the river
'n I'll cover y' with my gun tel 1 know
yer all right"
"I won't mind a small thing like that
ef you'll put me'n my leetle brother
Mark and his companion went down
to the river. Pretty soon a wild looking
man, with a beard growing straight ont
from his face like the spokes of a cart
wheel, came cautiously down, covering
them with a shotgun as he proceeded.
'Got a pass, stranger?"
"Reckon they won't let y' land when
y' get over thar."
"These army fellers are like a rat
trap," said Mark; "they ain't so partic
ular as to goen In; it's the goen out they
don't like. But y' better try to strike a
point on the river whar ther ain't no
"Far how much?"
"An extra fiver."
"You ain't very patriotic. Won't f
take Confederate bills?"
"Not when 1 can get green uns."
"Y' ain't a Union man, are yT
"No. But I know a valyble thing
when I sees it."
The night would have been very dark
had it not been for the moon behind the
clouds. As it was, the boat could only
be seen from the shore when they drew
too near. They pulled up the river west
of Moccasin point, keeping near the
east bank. They could see campfires
of guards on the other shore. Once,
getting too near a river picket, they
were seen and challenged.
"Who goes thar?"
"Oh, noneo' your business!" said Mark
"Pull in hyar or I'll make it some o'
"Oh, now, see hyar! We can't stop
every five minutes to please a guard.
How do you know but we're on anny
"Well, pull in hyar and show your pa
pers." Meanwhile the ferryman was keeping
the oars nioviug gently, and the boat
turned at an angle with the current,
which was taking the boat toward the
east shore. "Now pull away hearty,"
whisjiered Mark, and the boat shot ont
f sight of the picket in a twinkling. A
bullet whistled over their heads, but
wide of the mark.
"Golly!" exclaimed Jakey. "What a
pnrty tune it sings!"
They were now off Moccasin point
and Mark began to look for a landing
place. Just above he noticed a camp
fire, aud above this was a placewliere
the bank was low, with overhanging
trees. Mark directed the ferryman to
pull for these trees. He slipped a hand
kerchief in one of the rowlocks the
only one used in turning the boat into
6hore 60 as to tnnfllu the oar. The
coast seemed to be clear for a landing,
but as they drew near they proceeded
cautiously nnd listened for the slightest
sound. The lxwit's nose touched without
noise, and Mark and Jakey got out.
Mark handed the wild whiskered fer
ryman the crisp ten dollar note, which
he clinched eagerly.
"Yer pui ty well ter do, stranger, cou
sideren yer close."
"Didn't y' hyar what 1 said to the
guard 'Iniut business for the army?"
"Waal, don't say nothen 'bout it. Th'
Confederate service pays ez it goes."
The ferryman cared little whom he
pulled if ho could make ten dollars in
one night, and dipping his onrs in the
water rowed away from the shore.
Mark turned to look about him. His
first move was to get uuder the trees.
From there lie proceeded inland for a
short distance, looking for something.
"Ah, hero it is!" he said presently.
"Now I know where I am."
He had struck the Nashville and Chat
tanooga railroad, which runs close to the
ri.ver. bank for about a mile nnr wW
uc lanueu. ne Knew tie was about two
miles from the town.
"Now, Jakey," he said, "we'll bivouac
right here. As soon as it is light we
must set out. Are you sleepy?"
"Am I? Reckon I am!"
THE CAMPS AT CHATTANOOOA.
"Cap." he iid, "I bc'n thlnken I'd likt
ter jine the army."
At the first sign of dawn Mark awak
ened his companion, who was sleeping
so soundly that it required a good shake
to rouse him. Jakey sat up and rubbed
his eyes with his fists while Mark looked
abont him. He could see down the river
for half a mile, where he noticed bluffs
to the water's edge, and thought it was
lucky he had not been forced to land
there. Beyond were the Raccoon moun
tains, while close to the southwest Look
out mountain towered above him.
After Jakey had completed his fist
toilet the only toilet either made Mark
led off on the railroad ties to Chatta
nooga. The railroad soon left the river
bank, and they proceeded in a north
easterly direction, striking the town
from the south.
A great many tents were in sight as
they passed along, and Mark judged at
once that there was a large force con
centrated there. He was tempted to
turn aud retrace his steps, for he knew
already what he was sent to discover,
but to get out was more difficult than to
get in, and he was not willing to risk an
attempt in the daytime, so he entered
the town in which citizen and soldier
were alike asleep, and without meeting
a soul walked about till he came to n
hotel called the Crutchfield house. As
he approached the door opened, and a
negro boy with a broom in his hand
stood in the opening.
"Cau 1 git a room?" asked Mark.
"No, sah, not till de proprietor waken
"My little brother is tired; he must go
to sleep at once."
The boy's eyes opened wide at a dollar
bill slipped in his hand. Without a
word he took a key from the rack above
a desk in the office, aud in a few min
utes both travelers were safety lodged,
with no one but the negro having seen
them euter the town or the house.
"So far, so good," said Mark. "Now
comes the real racket. By this time to
morrow morning I shall be either safe
across the river again, or 1 wouldn't
give a Confederate bond for my life."
After a few hours' sleep be rose, ami
ailing Jakey they made a toilet and
went down to breakfast. Mark had pur
posely neglected to write his name on
the register, and hoped that the land
lord would not notice the omission. But
he did, and the guest entered his name
as Mark Slack, Jasper, Tenn.
After breakfast he took Jakey and
strolled around the town, making pur
chases. He thonght it prudent to get
some of his greenbacks changed for Con
federate bills. He followed the sugges
tion Jakey had made at setting out und
bought some calico and tobacco and
the squirrel gun Jakey had modestly
suggested for himself. Mark was not
unwilling to have the gun with them, as
he thonght it might possibly be of serv
ice in case he should get hunted and
cornored; but in that event he counted
very little on any means of defense ex
cept flight or deception.
Mark was astonished at the number
of officers and soldiers he saw in the
streets. He found a new general in
command, of whom he had not heard as
a prominent leader, Braxton Bragg. He
made a circuit of the town and an esti
mate of the troops, but this was of little
value, for njKm the arrival of trains
regiment after regiment marched into
camp. Mark stood on the sidewalk hold
ing Jakey by the hand, looking at tli6
Confederates tramping along under the
stars and bars, their bands, when they
had any, which was rare, playing dis
cordantly "Dixie" or "The Bonny Bine
"What regiment nir thet 'ar?" asked
Mark of a soldier standing beside him
puffing at a rank cigar.
"Whar they all come from?"
"Tupelo. Come from thar m'self a
"Whar y' goen?"
"Only old Bragg knows, and he won't
tell. Reckon we're goen no'th to Knox
ville ter foller th' two brigades ez went
up a spell ago."
"What troops air all t'nese hyar anil
them ez is comen?"
"Waal, thar's Cheatham's and With
ers' divisions, and 1 reckon Anderson's.
1 saw Giucral Polk terday, 'n they say
Hardpe's hyar. I'm in th' Twenty
fourth Tennessee m'self, and thet's
Cheatham's. Lay's cavalry brigade is
hyar. Thet's all the cavalry I know on."
