Then they were marched away to

tlie lower story had no windows. The

there. The place was kept by an old

Iieen arrested with definite proof that he
'iih a spy, he would doubtless have been
put in the dungeon.
As it was, he was only guarded with
ordinary caution. This, however, seemed
piito Hufticieiit. to prevent his escape.
Jakey was put into a room by himself,
but ho was not required to stay there,
lie was suffered to go Htid come at will,
except that the guard at the gate was
ordered not to let him leave tho yard.
He asked the jailer's wife to permit him
to go in to Mark so often the first morn
ing of his arrival that at last the guard
tit tho door was instructed to pass lain
in and out at will.
"Well, Jakey," said Mark, when they
were together in their now quarters,
"this looks pretty blue."
' "Ueckon it docs."
"You'd better not stay hero. Go out
in the yard and I'll try to think up some
plan. Hut I must confess 1 don't see

bows on his knees, nnd putting his face
in his liunds thought upon his perilous

"Well, go out into the sunlight. Don't

Greatness underlying an uninviting
exterior is often called out by circum
stances. President Lincoln would not
have been the "great emancipator" had
he not been born in tho nick of time.
General Grant would not have become
prominent us a soldier had the civil war
occurred before or after he was of fit age
to lead the Union armies, and Jakey
Slack well, Jakey would not have de
velo'ied his ability as a strategic had it
not been for his friend, Mark Malone,
and the negro jail at Chattanooga.
Jakey was us incompetent to sit down
and think out a plan for his friend's es
cape as he was to demonstrate a propo
rtion of Euclid. He could neither add
coluums of two figures nor spell words
of oue syllable; indeed he could ueithe r
read, write nor cipher, the waut of an
ability to read or write beinir a great
disadvantage to him iu his present re
sponsible Hjsitiou. But the desire to
help his friend out of a bad fix having
got into his brain, from the nature of
the case it simmered there, and then
boiled a little, and simmered and boiled
again. Like most people of genius,
Jakey was unconscious of his own pow
ers, but there was one person iu whom,
lest to Mark, he had great confidence;
mat was cu ister honrt. men came
tho thought that if .Snuri were only
there "sho innught do a heap." This
led Jakey np to the problem how to Ret
her there. J he problem was too ditli
cult for his young brain to solv. so li?
got no further until circumstances came
to bis aid, or may he not have had the
germs of reason within him to go fur
ther without being definitely conscious
When he left Mark he went out info
the jailyard and began to stroll about
with his hands in his pockets. To a
casual observer he was simply a boy
with no playmates, who did not know
what to do with himself. If any onehad
been near him he would have seen his
little eyes continually watching for some
meaus of communication with the out-i-n'e
world. Occasionally he would
wander near the fence, first casting a
sly glauce at the jail. There were
tracks between the boards, nnd Jakey
was looking out for a good wide crack
to sdv through. At lust he found a
place to Hint linn and hovered about li

"Who is yo' callen? Yo' inns' be a

"rut yer eye close up to do fence and

Tho woman drew near and put her
eye to thu crack. Jakey stood oil
a little way, ami sho could see him
plainly. Meanwhile ho pretended to
have lost something on tho ground.
"Why bress my po' olo heart, honey,

While this conversation was going on

them over the fence.

Mark hoped that the preparations the
Confederates were making for tho ex
pected move would cause them to forget
him. He was not destined to be so for
tunate. The second day after his cap
ture he was taken before a court martial
held in a house occupied by the staff de
partment, to bo tried on the charge of
being a spy.
The court was assembled and ready to
proceed with the case. An officer had
been detailed lo defend the prisoner, but
he had not arrived and the court waited
PrVsently a clatter of horse's hoofs wus
heaht outside. It stopped before the
door of .he house, and in another mo
ment Ma Vg counsel entered the room.
Mark look'fcJ at him with astonish

As soon n he entered ho beckoned t

would sound to a northerner. To him
to bo a Fit. Hugh was to be incapable i
or a tlislionorablo act. Mark understood
him perfectly; indeed his counsel in
spired bin) with every confidence.
"1 would explain everything to yon,
captain, but my secret is not all my own.
I would be perfectly willing to trnst my
fate in your hands if I could honorably
do so. You will doubtless fail in your
defense, but 1 thank you for the effort
you will make."
Tho trial was of brief duration. Tho
soldiers iu whoso company Mark was
taken were called and testified to his
having masqueraded as a staff officer.
Knowing now that ho was probably a
Union spy, they would have shielded
him, but they bad already given np the
secret. Mark was asked where ho lived.
Ho had entered his name at tho hotel
ns coming from Jasper, so he gave tli;:t
place as his residence, but when asked
what county Jasper was in ho could not
tell. Tho maps ho had studied, being
military maps, did not give the coun
ties. Then some Tennessee soldiers were
brought in tho town swarmed with
them who testified that they lived at
Jasper and had never seen the prisoner
there. lho closing evidence against
Mark was given by the recruiting officer
with whom lie had promised to enlist.
Hearing that u spy had been taken, and
suspecting it might bo his promised re
cruit, ho went to tho courtroom and
there recognized the prisoner. His tes
timony was sufficient. Tho court had
niado up its mind before tho prisoner's
counsel had said ii word.
Captain Fitz Hugh seemed distressed
at not being able to bring forth nnv evi
dence in behalf of the prisoner. When
he arose to speak in Mark's defense tho
court listened to him with marked at
tention and respect indeed they were
as favorably impressed with tlio ac
cused's counsel as they were unfavor
ably disposed toward the accused. The
captain was obliged to content himself
with warning the court against convict
ing a man of being a spy because his
identity was not satisfactorily explained
and on circumstantial evidence. Ho
asked that the prisoner might have more
tirno than had been given him in which
to gather evidence in his behalf.
The court denied this request nnd pro
ceeded with a verdict. In forty minutes
after Mark entered the courtroom he was
found guilty of being a spy.
"Have you anything to say why the
sentence of the court should not passed
Captain Fitz Hugh interjiosed once
more for delay.
"1 would suggest," he said, "that inas
much as some explanation may come to
hand bearing on the case tho court fix
my client's punishment to take place on
a dav not nearer than n week from to
day." "1 had intended to fix it for to
morrow morning at sunrise," said tho
president, "but in deference to tho
prisoner's counsel 1 will compromise
with him midway between a week, as
ho desires, and toiuorrrow, or allowing
three days. Tho sentence of the court is
that tho prisoner be hanged by the neck
until ho is dead on the twenty-seventh
day of August, eighteen hundred aud
sixty-two, or three days from today."
liefore Mark was led out of the court
room his counsel approached him. Con
sidering the prejudice against the pris
oner, another man would have suffered
him to go without a word. Not so Cap
tain Fitz Hugh. Ho strodo np to Mark,
the officers and soldiers present making
a way for him, leaving him alono with
the prisoner by withdrawing to another
part of tho room, and extended his hand.
"One thing is plain to me," he said,
"whoever you ore, you are a gentleman,
and I believe you have sacrificed your
life to your sense of duty. 1 am sorry
that you did not trust mo with your tm
cret. Then I might have done something
for you. As it is, I have done nothing."
"It would have availed nothing," said
Mark. "You have done all you could
iimler any circumstances. Resides, had
1 tuld you who 1 am, you might have
felt it your bonnden duty to your cause
to make known the facts."
"Never," said Fitz Hugh proudly. "1
owe more to myself, more to my sense of
honor, more to my birth and breeding,
more even to mv state than to the Con
federacy." "Captain Fitz Hugh."said Mark with
a voice in which there was a slight
tremble, "yon are of too tine grain. You
are too frank, too truthful. Do not feel
a moment's regret at not having Wen
able to save me. Mine is but one of
thousands of lives that must go out in
this great struggle for human liberty.
Mine is an ordinary nature. You are
fitted for nobler work than war. 1 trust
you will bo spared to become an honor
to your state aud a reunited country.

The men clasped hands, mid Mark
wus led a way between two soldiers.
VK CAUSE OB FKKPl'M.
On the morning ufter Jukey's inter
view with the colored woman through
tho crack in the jailyard fence Souri
Slack was washing dishes by an ojten
window in the kitchen, an addition built
of pine boards to one of the united
houses which formed tho Slack dwell
ing. The sun was shining brightly, ami
t moruiug glory she had trained tip to
grow about tho window was fresh with
dew, Souri's heart felt unusually light.
The air was so fresh; the sun was so
bright; the morning glory flowers had
ch a companionable look in them that
MnMe:ny tneve came to her a qmck
fiinking away from the pleasurable sen
nation. A sense of danger rushed in to
take its place. Surely something hor
rible was almut to happen.
In a moment she heard the clatter of
horse's hoofs coming at a gallop. Look
ing up tho road, of which sho had a
view from the window, she saw a horse
covered with foam tearing toward her,
with a negro boy on his bare back. In
a moment the rider was at the fence ami
had reined in his horse. Wild with
haste and excitement, seeing Souri at
tho window, he called:
"Am tlis Shirk's placeT
"Whar Souri Slack?"
The boy held up a red handkerchief,
and then jumping off his horse threw
the reins over a picket in the fence, which
he vaulted, and running up to tho win
dow poked the handkerchief at her.
Souri at once recognized the handker
chief sho had given Mark. Sewed on to
a corner sho noticed a piece of dirty cot
cloth on which some one had written
with a pen in blotted letters:
"Whar'd y' git this?" asked Souri, her
face white as ashes.
"Dnnno. Left wid d niggers nt Mr.
Torbut's plantation. I'm Mr. Torbut's
"Win tole y ter tote hit hyar?"
"Olo nigger what leabo hit."
"Whaftl ho say?"
"Nnffen." And tho boy pointed to
the corner as if that was sufficient ex
planation for any one.
Souri could rot read what was written
there, but sho knew Mark had been cap
tured, and it was fair to suppose that he
was nt or near Chattanooga.
"Waal," sho said, "y niggers hev
passed this ter me; reckon y' ken pass
mo back; I'll go 'th y Air y hungry?"
"1'zo rid since one o'clock (lis inawiiin."
"Waal, take yer horse round ter tho
barn fur u feed, and then come in hyar."
Tho darky showed his white teeth and
did as ho was bidden. When ho came
in Souri placed something to eat before
him, and then went in to inform her
mother of what had happened.
"inmr'd j' tjit thh7" anked Souri.
"Maw," sho said, "Jakey's tuk."
"La sakes!" exclaimed the mother with
a scream. "Air they goen ter hang
"Don't know. The sojer's tuk too.
Reckonthey'll hang him. sarten."
"How'd y' know?"
Souri told her about giving Mark the
handkerchief and its return "in de
cause ob fredum."
"What shall we dor" moaned the
mother, rocking in concert with her
"I'm goen ter Chattanoogy ter find
"They'll hang y', too," whined Mrs,
"Reckon not. 1 mought find a way
ter git Jakey onten jail."
" 'N th' sojer too?"
"Air y' goen jest's y' air?"
Souri thought a while without reply
ing. She would go with the colored lioy
of course. He could show her tho way,
and she might pass for some relative.
Rut that would not do. She was white,
and the boy wus black. Why not dark
en her face? The idea was a good one.
"Maw," she said, "I'm a-goen out ter
find some berries to make me a nierlat
ter," and before her mother could reply
she was off. When she returned the
negro boy had finished his breakfast.
She told him that she would be ready to
go back with him in half an hour.
While she was talking to him he fell
asleep. Then she thought it would bo
better to let him sleep all day and travel
at night. Time would be lost, but thero
would be less liability to interruption, so
she aroused him with difficulty and con
ducted him to an old sofa, where he at
Mice dropjied off again iutoslnmberland.
It was about four o'clock iu the after
noon when Souri awakened the boy.
Seeing a mulatto girl standing by him in
an old calico dress and a sunbuiinet ou
her bead he was astonished.
"Who yo"f" he usked.
"Don't y' know me?"
"What's yer name?"
"What's yer t'other name?"
"Ain't got none!"
"I'm goen with y' t' where y' started
from; then 1 reckon I'll have ter go on
"Ole man dar; he tote ' furder."
"Waal, come alonj. Fat a snack 'u
lien we'll go."
When Julius had eaten his fill they
mounted the horse, the girl sitting strad
dled behind him. Souri, in a common
calico dress and a very large sunbounet.
looked for all the world like a negro
girl. Julius took her ovw till inn.
inc.noie, mho at mitinigntarew'Ffcih near
a l.;rge plantation. There thev both got
down, and Julius, who had surrepti
tiously taken one of his master's horses,
returned it to the stable. Then he led
the way to a row of negro cabins
Going to one of them ho knocked ou the
door. It was opened by the negro with
whom Mark and Jakey had staid on
the creek between the Fains' and Chat
tanooga. "Dis de gal," said Julius.
"Goen to Chutunoogy?" asked the old
"1 show yo' do way. Go righ' off?"
"Hab t' foot hit. Ain't got no horse."
"1 can do hit."
The negro was evidently ready and
expecting them, for without going back
into the cabin he led tho way eastward
Souri tramped in his company the rest
of tho night, and at daybreak they were
at his cabin on the creek. There she
took a few hours' rest, and after the sun
was up ato a breakfast which the old
man prepared for her. After this he set
out to show her the way to Chattanooga.
Ho asked no questions. All lie kuew
was that his efforts were in "de cause
ob fredum." and that was quite enough.
The old woman who had brought him
tho handkerchief had told him where
her cabin was in Chattanooga, and he
seemed to understand that he was to
guide Souri there. She gave him some
information as to a man and a boy at
the jail in Chattanooga. This was all
They crossed the river by the regular
ferry, having no trouble in doing so, for
citizens and negroes were passing all the
while. About ten o'clock iu the morn
ing they reached the cabin of the old
Degress who had started the handker
"Fo" do Lo'd!" exclaimed tho woman.
"How'd yo' git hyar so quick?"
"Train 1 all night," said tho pilot.
"Who dat jailer gal?"
"I'm Souri Slack. W'har's th' jail?"
Tho woman led Souri out to show her
tho way, and the man left the cabin on
his way homeward. Souri was taken to
a place where she could see the jail, and
tho woman told her where to find tho
crack through which Jakey had con
versed with her.
Souri went to tho place alone, and
going to tho fence hunted till she found
the crack. Sho peeped in, hoping to soe
her brother, but Jakey was not there.
Sho waited an hour or more, but he did
"Reckon I'm wastin time hyar," she
said at last. "I'm goen right in ter git
round th' olo woman, ef thero is ono.'
And sho went to the gate and presented
herself before tho sentinel.
"What d' y' want?" he asked.
Souri didn't know whether tho jailer
had a wife or not, but she hazarded the
"Do jailer s wife tulo me to come in 'n
tote do washen."
The soldier looked at her doubtfully
but suffered her to pass in.
She had scarcely entered before she
saw a party of soldiers conducting a
man from the jail. They passed Heat
her, and she recognized Mark. Ho was
going to his trial. He did not recognize
her, darkened as she was, ami she was
too wise to make herself known. Jakey
followed his friend and was going to
pass out with him. but was stopped by
Souri saw tears trickling down the
boy's cheeks as ho went back and
strolled about in the yard. Sho longed
to take him in her arms, ut did not
dare to even make herself known tohiin.
Sho did not kuow where Mark was be
ing taken, so going back to the guard
she asked with apparent idlo curiosity
"Whar dey goen wid dat man?"
"Reckon thar goen tor try him."

Souri determined to attempt to get
service with tho jailer's wife. She
hoped that she might be received with
less suspiciou while the prisoner was
away. Resides she must communicate
with her brother as soon as possible.
She went into the jail and found a
woman, whose hair was streaked with
gray, sweltering over a cooking stove.
