found a boat which had all it roulrt do
to carry the soldiers and citizens who

till she had sot, hut this would not be
till after daylight. lie made up his
mind to make the attempt at once.
Calling Jakey ho gave him an account
of what he intended to try for, and told
him that if it should be necessary to run
under fire the boy was to lie down, and,
if necessary, give himself up, but on no
account to risk being shot. Jakey only
half promised, and Mark was obliged U
he satistied with this. Then, waiting
for a little while longer for the twilight
to entirely disappear mid a cloud to ob
scure the moon, he lay on tho ground
gathering his forces and getting his
mind into that cool state requisite for
ono who is about to make a very haz
Presently the conditions were favora
ble, and he got up and led the way to the
river batik, which he proposed to skirt.
He left his bundle, but took Jakey 's gun,
loaded and capiicd. in his hand. They
soon gained the point where they had
landed the night before nearly opposite
where Mark had seen tho silhouettes on
the railroad. Treading as noiselessly as
possible, they passed along the river mar
gin under tlm overhanging bank till
they came to a place where the bank
was low. Stooping, they proceeded for
a short distance till they reached the
root of a tree that had been felled long
before. Here they paused ami listened.
.Suddenly they heard what sounded
like a musket brought from a shoulder
down to tlm hollow of a hand, and a
"Who comes t liar?'
'Corporal of the guard, with relief."
"Advance, corporal, and give the conn
Then there was' some muttering and
footsteps tramping away.
Mark peeped between the roots of tile
stump toward the point from which the
sounds had eoine. lie saw, not a hundred
feet away a man sitting on a log with
his musket r-stit g against his shoulder,
the butt, mi the ground. He was looking
listlessly up at the sky. Presently he
took a chiv pipe out of his pocket, which
he tilled, and 'oiiehinga match lighted it.
"He's the nver picket." said Mark to
The sent in, l sat smoking while Mark
iiieditaied. His first thought was, Why
did 1 bring this boy? The situation was
H-rilous enough without an encum
brance. The guard was facing the space
over which they would have to pass to
escape; there might be a slight chalice
for life to make a dash were he alone,
hut witli the hoy it was not to be thought
or, and Mark was unwilling to leave
htm. He looked back with a view tore
tracing the route over which he had
COine. lb" was horrified to see Uselitillel
pacing a hundred yards above. He had
lieeu placed there by the relief.
The only hope w as to wait for the mini
nearest him to relax his watchfulness,
and attempt to pass him. Tho sentinel
up the river was not to be feared except
by going hack, for from the nature ut
the ground the fugitives would lie hid
den from him if they should go forward.
Mark resolved to wait and watch.
The minutes seemed hours, the bourn
days. The soldier still sat on the log,
though now and then he would get up,
and leaving his uinsket leaning on it
sannter back and forth on his beat, lie
v ell knew there was no enemy to fear;
his duty was little more than a form.
He began to hum a few strains of "The
"Poor devil," said Mark to himself,
"he, ton is thinking of home. What a
cursed Ihing war is! If ever 1 get out of

to say to lion; "a shot Would arouse tin'

your game, why don't you riddle me

Then the stillness was broken by the
sound of oars out on the liver. How Mark
longed for the boat to come im.l take
him from his terrible position! Hut who
ever was working those oars pulled on.
unmindful of the man who so keenly
envied th oarsman's freedom. The
fi -unds became fainter and fainter till
Mark could hear them no more, 'he
sighed as if he had lost a dear friend.
"Jakey's coinfoitahlo anyway," he
said, looking down at the boy. He had
dropped asleep, and Mark for the first
time in his life envied a human lieing
the protection of weakness. There was
innocent childhood, unconscious of dan
ger, sleeping sweetly, the boyi.sh face
lighted by th" moon.
At last Mark heard the relief coming.
The sentinel took his gun and began to
pace his beat. The usual form was pro
ceeded with, and tho relief marched to
tho sentinel itpt.hu river. Mark observed
the man that had been left on post.
"I hope this fellow will bo nioie in

man begin to pace his beat energetical

keep moving lm would get drowsy. A
half hour passed with nearcely n rest,
then iinothi i half hour. It w'as tramp,
tramp in one direction, turn and tramp,
tramp back again.
The clouds which continued to pass
over tho moon hc aiiio heavier. If the
sentinel would only relax his vigilance,
these periods of Comparative darkness
would be favorable to Might. Hut if the

and his chin sank on his hrewtt. lie

He would not go to sleep comfortably
in accordance with Mark's muttered
prayer, but took short naps. Mark con
sidered the feasibility of an attempt to
escape between these naps. Without
Jakey ho wo'.tld do it; with Jakey it
was too hazardous.
At last the soldier slid down on to tin
ground, stretched out his legs and rest
ed his back against the log,
Mark's heart went up into his throat
with a sudden Joy,
Ah hear as lie could guess there re
mained a quarter of ail hour till the next
relief would come. He looked ut the
moon, which was now shining with pro
voking brightness; he looked at the man
and tried to make sure that be m
asleep. It was impossible to tell with
"I'll risk it," he said.
He took Jakey up in his arms very
carefully, hoping not to waken him, fix
ing tho boy's limp body in the hollow of
his left arm. hi the right hand be took
the squirrel gun, cocked and capped,
using tho arm at tho same time to hold
tho child. When all was ready he rose
slowly and fixed his eyes on the soldier.
The man did not stir.
Mark moved slowly forward, bis eyes
riveted on the sentinel. A few steps
convinced him that the man really slept.
Mark turned his back on him and walked
a dozen steps noiselessly, picking a place
to plant his foot at each step.
Was it the soldier's voice?
turn and shoot htm?
No, only an explosion of
brand in the camphre at
guard on the railroad track.
His heart, w hich had stood
thumping like a drumitick.
He turned to look nt the sentinel. The
man sat there gazing straight al him; ai
least so ho appeared to Mark. The tigme
was us plain as day in the moonlight,
though too far for Mark to see the eye
He cast a quick glance down into Jakey's
face. 1L too, was shaping peacefully.
While thee two wore in sliiiuberland

Ilea veil and hell. And how still it was

His imagination had never served him

down his side. Certainly he had been
Nonsense! Away with such freaks of
fancy! Suddenly he trod on a rotten
branch. It cracked with a sound which
teemed to lii tit like the reHrt of a pistol
Again he paused and turned, lie saw
the sentinel motionless. He had slipped
farther down, and his list bad fallen
farther ever his forehead.
He moved backward, his even fixed on
his sleeping enemy, occasionally turning
to see where he stepped. He was get
ting near to cover. In this way he
passed to within a few steps of conceal
ment. How he coveted the overhang

he useless should the sentinel awake too
This sound was real; it was s hiieezo
from the picket.
Mark knew that it was a signal of
awakening. He darted behind the bank
and wan nut of sight.
He heard the sentinel get up, shake
himself, give a yawn, a grunt, as if
chilled, and begin to pace his beat.
Mark moved away cautiously, a great
flood of joy and thankfulness welling
np through hit whole nature. After
going a MifllcicDt distance to be out of
hearimr. he awakened Jakey.
"IIIM'V aKe up'
The boy opened his eyes.
"We're beyond the picket."
"W bar's my gun?"
"Oh. blessed childhood," thought
.Mark, "that in moments of peril can be
interested in Mich trilling things!"
"I have your gun here in my hand
It's safe. Stand on your legs, my boy
We're going on."
Jakey stood on the ground and rnb
lied his eyes with his lists. Once awake
tie was aw ake all over.
Thev moved on down therivertoward
the base of Lookout mountain, soon
leaving the river margin and striking
inland liehind some rising ground. Find
ing a coiivet'ient nook in a clump of
bushes wherein to leave Jakey, Mark
told him to lie down and stay there
while he reconiioitered to lint! a way to
get down the river ami to cross it.
Mark hunted nearly all night. Ho
could find no practicable route. He did
not know how to proceed around Look
out mountain, and could find no means
of crossing tho Tennessee near where lie
was.- At last, looking down from a
knoll, ho could see the margin of the
river at a place where the bank concealed
the shore bet ween the base of the bank
and tho verge of the water. But what
he saw especially, and which gladdened
his heart, was a bout moored to the
shore und in it a pair of oars.
Going back to the place where he had
left Jakey he wakened him, and together
they returned to the knoll. Tho boat
was still where h.j had seen it. Leading
the way Mark descended to the bunk
So intent was he upon seizing the boat
that he did not think to approach cau
tiously. Ho forgot that where there
was a boat with uars in it tho oarsman
would likely not bo far away.
Ho jumped down to the slanting
ground below and landed in the midst of
a party of Con federate soldiers.
A I'Kset.ltATK SITUATION.
"My fixtWifiiiff," he whined.
Never was there a more surprised
look on any man's face than on Mark's
at the moment he discovered the men
into whose midst he had fallen. He
knew the range of the Confederate
picket line, and was unable to under
stand how this party could be a part oi
it. The men looked equally surprised
at his appearance. Indeed tney seemed
more disconcerted at his sudden coming
than he was at their being there. When
he made his leap among them they
were ubotit to get into the boat, and one
of them held the painter iu bis hand
Mark in a twinkling made up his mind
that they were not pleased at his up
pearance. He determined to play a bold
game, lie had no defined plan when
he began to speak to them it came to
him as he proceeded.
"What tire you men doing here?" la
asked in a tone that none but a soldier
knows how to assume.
No one answered.
"What regiment do you belong to?"
"Is there a noncommissioned officer
There was so much of authority in
Mark's tone that it compelled an answer
and a respectful one.
"You men are away from your com
mands without permission. I can see
The men looked guilt;i. but said noth
ing. "You e iuently don't know me. 1 am
an oftifer of (ii i.er.il Brcgg's staff on an
important mission of secret service."
He waited a moment to discover the
effect of his words ami then proceeded:
"It is a matter of the greatest moment
that 1 get across the river at once. 1
want you men to pull me over and then
report immediately to your colon -1.
Give mo your names."
Without appearing to doubt for a mo
ment that he would be obeyed, he called
on the men successively, and each man
responded with his name. There were
five men, and as each answered he
saluted repect fully.
"Now what regiment do you belong
-The th Tennessee."
"The old story." said Mark severely.
"You men are doubtless from east Ten
nessee. You are deserters, trying to get
back to where you came from."
Mark had hit the nail on the head.
The men looked terror stricken, lb)
kuew. when he ordered them to pull
across the river, that they would obey
him gladly. And if he should leave
them to report to their colonel, they
would attempt to make their way north
"Get into the boat, every one of yott."
Every man got into the boat, and one
of them took the oars.'
"Now if )ou will get me over quickly
I'll see what I can do for you with your
comma ling officer when 1 return."
Jakey was standing on the bank with
his eyes wide open at this swne. Mark
hud been a -hero with him; now ho was
a little less than a god.
"Do yon want to get across the river,
my little man?" asked Mark, a if he
had never seen the boy before.
"Does 1 want ler? Course I does."
"Jump in then, quick, I've no time
Jakey came down and got in with the
"Gir way," cried Mark, and the boat
shot out from the aKor.
iNot n dozen strokes had been taken
before Mark, who was delighted at the
success of his assurance, saw a sight
that made Ins heart sink within him. A
boat shot around Moccasin point from
God m heaven! It was full of armed
As soon as they saw the skiff with
Mark and the deserters in it for such
they were- they pulled straight for

Mark knew it was all up with him.
His assuiiiption of being on General
Hragg's staff, which had U-en so suc
cessful a ruse, suddenly appeared lo him
a halter about bis neck.
'Hand over your guns." said the offi
cer The guns were hando.l into the boat,
all except Jakey's shotgun.
"That other ono too."
'That's only a shotgun, captain," said
"Well, m-ver mind tho popgun."
Every moment tho deserters looked
for Mark to declare his exalted position
on General Oagg's staff, tint no such
declaration came. It seemed possible to
them that perhaps he would not wish to
disclose his identity to so many. At any
rate they said nothing. Had it not been
for his assumption Mark would have
applied to i he captain to let a poor coun
tryman and hts little brother pass. Had
ho done so it is quite possible that tho
men he had deceived, surmising that ho
was a i I-i' i;,'.- e like themselvss, would

stripes as soon as they could get near
enough to warrant an attempt. They
were sent to their regiment under guard.
As they were leaving one of them said
"1 hojie you'll keep your promise."
Mark did not reply; he bad cherished
a hope that they would be taken away
before anything would come out as to
his assumption of authority.
"What promise?" asked the provost
"He's an ofiicer on General Bragg's
staff. Ton ought to know him. colonel."
"The devil!" exclaimed the colonel.
"Oh, 1 saw the men were doing some
thing they were ashamed of, and 1 bluffed

"Who are you?"
"1 belong in last Tennessee."
"Yon don't belong to any such place.
You're not southern born at all. You're
a Yankee. 1 thought you wero only
trying to get north with these men; now
I believe you are a spy."
"I'm a southern mail, barton," said
Mark, with such coolness that the officer
was for a moment in doubt as to his .sur
mise. "Let me bear you say New York."
"New Yolk." ,
"New Yoi k." repeated the colonel iron
ically. "Jf you weio a southern man

"I shall i ave to hold you till I can re
port the ruse to headquarters," said the
ofcicer, and Mark and Jakey were led
away to a room in the house occupied
by the provost marshal for prisoners
temporarily pilssing through his hands.
The reply that came to the announce
ment of the capture of the citizen and
the hoy was to hold I hem under vigilant
guard. It was reported that Mark had
been personating an officer of the start',
and this looked very suspicious; indeed
quite enough so to warrant their trying
him for a spy by drumhead court mar
tial and executing him 1 he next morning.
Mark was searched and everything of
value taken from him. They went
through Jakey's pockets and felt of the
lining of his coat, but as he was a child
the search was not very thorough, or
they would have found the bills in his
boot. They took his gun, but by t'jis
time Jakey realized that there was some
thing more momentous than a squirrel
gnu at stake, and parted with it without
showing any groHt reluctance. He real
ized, that Mark, for whom he had by
this time conceived a regard little short
of idolatry, was iu danger, hikI the boy
for the tirst tune began to feel that his
friend could not accomplish everything.
Jakey stood looking on stolidly as Mark
was searched till he saw a soldier take
Souri's red silk handkerchief. He had
produced the impression ou the searchers
he had at first produced upon Mark that
he was stupid beyond his years. As the
man grasped the handkerchief and was
about to put it in his pocket Jakey set
