Tho battlo ot Chlckuinaugn U over.
Tho Army of tho Cumberland has with
drawn to Chattanooga, pafo for tho
present nt least behind breastworks.
Tholr enemies aro looking down upon
them from tho heights that enclrclo tho
town, awaiting for thorn to fall on easy
proy through starvation. Colonel Mil
liard is awaiting tho result of army red
tape in tho matter of his court martial.
Tho papers in tho cno wero lost in tho
rout of tho right and wero forgotten in
his offoru to save tho loft. Atnnyrate,
no ono seemed to euro anything about
them, .lukry and .lenulo had ridden

Ono morning an orderly enmu to
Colonel Muynaid's tent and showed
him ii letter postmarked County Cavan,
Ireland, and addressed to tho man who
bnd ossistrd in tho e.scapo of Caroline
Fitz Hugh. 13ut thcro wero features
of tho uddrcbs which led Maynard to
doubt if it wus not for toiiio other Rati
gon. Maynard determined to go in ('tirst
of Ratigan's body, or Ratigau hluitiulf,
if ho wero not dead, taking tho letter
with him. Ho mado a request for u
"flag of truce," which was granted,
and tho next morning, after mi early
breakfast, Colonel Maynard, accom
panied by .Inkey mid tho little girl,
whom Maynard hoped to re.storo to her
parents, each mounted mid nil attend
ed by n lieutenant and 20 men, set
out lroni Chattanooga toward Mission
Ridge. Tlioy met thu enemy's pickets
at tlio basu of tho ridgo and wero con
ducted to HoiNvillo. Colonel Maynard
at oueo requested that ho might bo uo
corded an interview with Colonel Fit
Hugh, if that oillcer survived thu bat
tlo. A messenger was sent to summon,
him, and as ho had soma miles to go
"tho flag" party dismounted, wero tak
en into n house, whero they awaited tho
officer's arrival. Every attention was
shown them, and they wero made ax
ooiiifortiiblo us possible. Two hours aft
er tho departure of thu courier Colonel
Fit?. Hugh rodo up to tho door.
There wits always a certain embar
rassment between these two men, whieli
uuder tho circumstances was ijuito nat
ural, but which was heightened by tho
habitual dignity with which Fitz Hugh
boro himself. Thoro wus much to force
them apart and much to draw them to
gether, but it all resulted in constraint.
Fit. Hugh lifted his hat to Maynard,
then advanced and put out his hand.
Neither seemed to think of appropriate
words of grouting, nud tliero wero a fow
moments of silence, which wero broken
by Maynard referring to his mission.
"Colonel," ho said, "I uni thu bearer
of a letter for Corporal Ratigau, though
tho superscription gives a different title
than coiporal tlio man who assisted
mo on thu mission which you doubtless
woll remember. I taw Ratigau fall from
his horso and suppose that ho is dead.
Am I right?"
"No, sir. Corporal Ratigau lives. Ho
was severely wounded by a shot from
your men. llo managed to keophis sad

when ho fainted through loss of blood.
For a timo his lifo hung iu tlio balance.

"I am rojolced to hear it. Perhaps
this letter is for him. Will you attend
to its delivery?"
"If you will rido with mo toRingold,

Cau you got permission to tako mo so

"In that caso I may look, by tho way,

Colonel Maynard wan required to
givo his parole not to uso any informa
tion ho might acquiro on tho way and
was permitted to go forward.
It won n singular party that crisp Oc
tober morning, cantering down tho
Chattanooga and Lafayetto road, tho
recent bone of contention, toward the
now deserted battlefield Maynard and
Fitz Hugh rodo together at tho front
Then camo Jukey and Jennie, both

followed another leading arounl tho
ridge, soon striking a third leading to
Reed's bridge. When they camo to tho

it which happened not to bavo been
taken for firewood llko tho rest, whit
tliiigitRtiok. Catching sight of the child
as tho party rodo tip, iio went to her,
J and taking her in his nrnis covered her
with kisses. Tho mother, hearing tho
exclamations, rushod out ami repeated
tho father's caresses.
Tho parents expressed as woll as they
wero ablo nud in their humble way their
thanks to tho rescuer of their child, and'
tho party proceeded on their way. !

"I can't write."
"Waal, I'll do it anyhow. Yor a
purty nioo young un of y ' air only a gal. "
Riding over Reed's bridgo, tho party
passed through tho gnp in the ridgo be
yond, and descending tho east slope soon
struck a road loading to Rlngold. They
rodo into the town about noon nud soon
drew rein boforo tho houso whoru Cor
poral Ratigau lay wounded. Fitz Hugh
and Maynard dismounted and entered
together, Jakoy bringing up tho rear. In
tho hallway, her eyes largo with aston
ishment at seeing her brothor in com
pany with Colonol Maynard, stood Cnro
lino Fitz Hugh.
If the brother had failed in expressing
his thanks to Maynard, tho sister sno
cecdod, but not by words. Sho grasped
MaTiiard's hand, when suddenly, for
tho first timo sinco her escape, n full
realizing seuso of tho turrlblo ond bho
had so Harrow ly escaped swept over her.
Sho was looking her gratitude, with nil
tho intensity of her oxpressivo eyes,
when hor formal brother said:
"Caroline, Colonel Mayuard suffered
disgrace oil your account. It in proper
you should know how much wo owo
This information was too niuoli for
oven thu strong nature of so rosoluto a
woman. Shu burst into a passionato
flood of tears.
"For tho first timo sinco it occurred,"
said Maynard gently, "I am satlsflod
with my act What is tho opinion of
men to mo beside tho consciousness of
having served so admirable n woman?"
Fitz Hugh throw open a door near by
and led tho way through it into a room
whero Corporal Ratigau, his ruddy locks
contrasting with his pulo face ami tho
whiteness of his pillow, looked nt them
with tho same nstoiiishmeut aa Miss
"Why, colonel," ho exclaimed, "aro
yo a prisoner?"
"No. I como by thocourtesy of Colo

which I think is for you. AroyouHugh
"Sir Hugh Ratigau?"
"No; mo father was Sir Thomas Rat
igau of County Cavan, Iroland."
"Perhaps tliero have been changes,"
and Mayuard handed him tho letter.
Tho corporal took it and looked first
at tho black soal and then nt thu hand
writing, which ho recognized nt unco ns
his mother's, and read, "To Sir Hugh
Ratigau, United States Army, Tonnes
see, U. S. A."
"Mo brother is dead," ho said sol
emnly and then tore open tho envelope.
Tho letter advised him, as no suppos
ed, of tho death of his elder brothor,
and ns tho titlu and estates of tho fami
ly descended to him ho was adjured to
go homo and attend to his affairs.
"Is it as wo supposed;" nskcu may
nard. "It is. Oi'm Sir Hugh truo enough.
Mo brother, God rest Mm, is gone."
"Wo sympathizo with you nt your

All in turn took tho corpornl by tho

said Maynard. "Your duties aro moro
important in Ireland than as a corporal
in our service. Wo lmvo moro thau a

"I wish wo could say tho same," ob
served Colonel Fitz Hugh. !
Tlio visiting party, expecting to ro
turn that afternoon, had but littlo timo
to converso upon anything except Sir
Hugh Ratigan's future, and this they
considered fully. It was arranged that
ns soon as tho baronet should bo ablo to
travol ho was to go through tho linos,
apply for a discharge and go to Iroland.
Colonol Fitz Hugh anticipated no dif
ficulty in securing his permission to
depart from tho Confederacy, and as ho
was a Hrltlsh subjoct of rank it was not
expected that ho would bo hold to a
btrict accountability for tho part ho had
takoti in tho escapo of Carollno Fitz

TUB CHOICE OF A YOST,
Carolino Fitz Hugh had watched over
Corporal Ratigau every day sinco his
wounding, and by careful uursing had
doubtless saved his lifo. It was not for
tho corporal to fall iu lovo with his
tomptod to guido tho conversation upon I nurse, for ho had loved hor ovor sinco
Tkliivnnrd's siirvico to his sister in order tho day ho first met her. Whon tho
that ho might mako a proper acknowl

intention, always mado sonio remark by
way of thwarting him.
"My pop lives down thar," said Jen

"And thu United States is your coun

Tliero was n silonco botweon thoni for
onio moments. Ratigau laid his haud
on hors whilo sho was looking, with a
pained expression, out of tho window.
In her eyes was a far look. Hor lovor saw
her troublod expression. Ho did not at
tempt to comfort hor by recalling what
ho had said. Ho pushed on further.
"DarHn,"hosald, "yo'ro right when

In her eyes camo that humorous

sho stood in her buggy in tho road up
in Tonnessoo nnd tnntnlizod him for his
stupidity in having been duped by her.
"It would bo nioo to bo"
"To bo what, darliu?"
"Lady Rats," and she hid hor blushes

Tho sun sotting over Lookout moun
tain shone directly iu thu faces of May
nard and his party ns returning from
Ringold they rodo into Chattanooga. It
was a glorious October ovoniug, nnd tho
heights towering thorn, covorod by un
seen Confederates, reposed about tno
town liko liugo lions watching n wound
ed animal, confident that nt last it must
fall into their powor.
Dismounting before his tout, Maynard
entered it, nud tliero found n letter
from his wifo. Shu begged him to como
to hor if it wero possible, nnd if not to
writo to hor. Ho road and roroad tho
lettor again aud again, and thou mado
an attempt at n roply. After writing
half a dozen, nil of which ho toro up,
ho abandoned tho tnsk in despair. His
position was too uncertain. Tho son-
tonco of tho court martial hung over
him llko a sullen cloud. What could ho
say to hor to comfort hor? Ho woll
know that tho only comforting sho
needed was to know that ho was not
misornblo, nnd of that ho could not as
And so matters hung for a wook.
Having no dutlea to perform, tho timo
passod nil the mora slowly. Tho Con
federates woro goading occasional sholls
from Lookout raovntalu, and as thoy
woro harmless tho roports wero sorao-
thing of n reliof to Maynard, breaking
tho monotony of the silonco. Ho spent
much ot tho timo thinking of what ho
would do in caso tho sontence of tho
court woro npprovod nnd oarriod into
offect. Ho formed mnuy plans, which
woro all abandoued. At last ho settled
down to tho resolve that he would go to
tho army in tho oast, enlist under nu
assumed nnmo and await the coming of
some mlssilo to end his enrcur, as ho
had intended nt Chickamanga.
One morning an orderly rodo np to
lilni nnd handed him an ordor to report
in porson nt Gonoral Thomas' hoad
quarters. Calling for his horso nnd for
his own ordorly, Jakoy, to follow, ho
mouuted, and in n fovcrish mood darted
nwny to obey tho ordor. t
What did tho summons meaitt'Somo
thlim definite in his nffnirs had como
! about; that ho full rniwuinbly sum of.
Porhaps the papers of tho court in his
case had been found. Perhaps' thoy bad
been mado oat in duplicate, Tho latter
supposition was the most likely. His
offonso eonld not bo ignored. Indeed ho
could not afford to have it ignored. Tho
sentence must bo cither set asido or car
ried into effoct Dismissal would be far
more desirable than living in suspense.
All these matters rushed through his
mind whilo ho rodo to respond to the
summons. Tho nearer ho drew to head
quarters tho less hopeful ho became.
After all, was it not absurd to expect
anything except that now papers had
been mode, tho senteuco forwarded "ap
proved," nnd ho was now to be inform
ed that ho was no longer in tho army?
General Thomas could do much for him,
but thore was not a general in the army
who had a higher sense of a soldier's
obligations than ho. How was it possi
ble that so groat a leader, so rigid a dis
ciplinarian, ono with Buch high concep
tions, could do aught in his caso but
approve the sentence? And now ho was
sending for him to inform him of bis
Robs confinement of Its Pain, Horror and,
Risk, as many testify.

Following this reasoning, by tho time
ho nrrivod at headquarters his expecta

mounted, and so prooccupiodwashoth.it

But tho first faco on which Maynard's
eyes rested was not that of tbo general.
Another was thcro to greet him, ono
who, ho know, whether ho woro honor
ed or disgraced, would novcr lovo him
tho less. It was his wifo. Tho thought
flashed through his brain, "Sho is hero
to comfort mo when tho blow falls. "
Ho wanted to fly to her embrace. Tho
impulso was checkod. He saw that sho
burned to fly to him, but sho, too, re
strained hersolf, for there, between
tliom, towered tho flguro of tho general.

"Tho offenso for which you wero

impressively, "was too grievous to bo
