"Heroember, Dorothy, that I am
most particular about trespassers on
tho place," admonished Miss PrlsclUa
Fenn na bIio climbed Into tho station
bus. "I leavo the placo In your caro
and I do hopo that whon I come homo

yoB, Mr. Penny, I'm ready goodbye,
Mloa PrlsclUa waved a silk-gloved
band nB the big whlto horses plunged
forward with the long omnibus and
rolled toward tho railroad station.
Miss Fenn wbb merely going to Tu
Uptown, ton miles away, but her elab
orate preparations for tho two dayB'
visit and her endless admonltlonH to
hor grandnlcco whom buo had left at
home, ono might have thought MIhs
PrlsclUa was setting forth on a trip
around tho world.
Dorothy turned away from the gate
an Indulgent Btnllo curving her red
lips. The wldo pleasant lawns with
tholr stately trees, and tho cool shade
of the deep verandas wcro alluring
enough on this beautiful summer
morning, but she had promised Aunt
PrlsclUa to patrol tho banks of tho
trout stream and see that no trespass
ing boys disturbed the rippling brown
brook where speckled beauties lurked
In dark pools.
It happened that the brown brook
was moBt tempting where it rippled
through the Fenn place. Up above It
was but a narrow thread broken by
many rapids and tiny waterfalls; be
low the Fenn place it ran through
carefully preserved property belong
ing to tho Whlttakers, and after serv
ing the Whlttakers the trout stream
widened luto a pond.
So Miss PrlsclUa was greatly an
noyed by lawless flshormen -who
thrashed hor stream in tho early
morning hours when she was still
Now Miss Fenn had gone away and
the safety of the trout retted solely
lupon Dorothy Fenn, who wns visiting
her favorite aunt, for Martha, the
tout mald-of-all-work, had refused to
-do sentry duty. As for Dorothy she
did not much care for she loved the
deep wooda and the brown brook was
favorite retreat of hers.
"Now, Miss Dorothy, you ain't ever
going down to that nasty brook this
imorning?" protested Martha with the
familiarity of an old and privileged
servitor. "Them trouts ain't biting
every day why, I've heard toll that
Mr. Whlttaker himself hau been
known to flih for three days without
catching a bite even; but he's a dread
ful crank at it. So 'taln't likely them
boys will ketch anything If they do
"I dare say you're right, Martha, but
I promised Aunt PrlsclUa I would
keep watch and you know she 1b very
particular about it. Suppose you ring
the big boll for me when luncheon 'is
ready then I will bo suro to hear it."
"Very well, Miss Dorothy, but look
here" Martha went to a chimney
cupboard and took from It an ancient
and rusted pistol of enormous size.
'" I never go Into tho deep woods
' without this weapon and you tako It
in case anybody scares you. Law, It
ain't loaded 1 wouldn't carry It it
It wast But, you can show it and
frighten 'cm off. There, I'll put it in
this Uttlo basket with some pears and
cookios run along now."
"Oh, Martha, you are the funniest
old dear!" laughed Dorothy. "It you
hear a tromendous explosion you will
know that this old cannon has gone
off and 'frightened all tho trout to
death." Ho, bum, It they only would
depart to othor streams wo wouldn't
havo to do sentry-go, eh, Mnrtha?"
She waived her hand and departed
through the orchard toward the tall
Established under an oak whoso
shining green leaves overhung the
dancing stream, Dorothy tossed aside
her bat and allowed tho vagrant
breeze to ruffle hor red-gold hair. Her
book lay open on hor lap, and her
brown eyes dreamed of tho love and
romance that ran over tho printed
pages. Love and romanco had never
come to Dorothy Fenn, but it was
very near to her that morning.
A gray squirrel flirted with hor
from bis holo in a nearby tree; a
wood thrush charmed her with his
plusatlng love melody; tho leaves of
tho trees whispered softly, and the
brown brook rippled on and on, go
ing secretly around the rocks where
the trout hid in the deep green pools.
After awhile Dorothy got up and
walked along tho bonk of tho stream,
'following a striped chipmunk darting
through the underbrush. The chip
munk disappeared in bis hole, and a
flock of chickadees performed antics
on the branches of a dogwood tree.
There was a splash a sharp ex
clamation and the whirring of a reel
Dorothy forgot everything save that
there was a trespasser nearby.
Silently she went back to her bas
ket and was astonished to And that
she had wandered so far why, she
had evon crossed the brook on the
stepping stones In her chase of the
chipmunk who was a venturossome
mite and Bho hid the pistol in the
blouse of her sailor suit and went
.back across , tho stepping stones to
that spot beyond the aldorB where she
had hoard the sound of a fisherman's
tool spinning out.
At last Bho could see him a sun
browned batloss youth clad In old
clothes, with a pipe between bis teeth.
and his bluo eyes bright with excite
ment as ho played a splendid trout in
and out of tho deeps and shallows'
of the stream. At laBt he whopped
exultantly and landed tho speckled
beauty on tho mossy bank,
"What are you dong here?" asked
Dorothy sternly as sho broke through
tho aldors and stood boforo him, a
slender, white-clad girl with accusing
brown eyes below a serious forehead.
"Why ah you can see!" he ex
plained, removing his plpo and show
ing splendid whlto teeth in n pleasant
"I should think you'd bo ashamed
of yourself," went on Dorothy con
tcmptously. Ho flushed. "You mean fishing out
of season? Well, 1 suppose I should,
but tho llsh didn't come for luncheon
and I promised Antonio that I would
got him ono down here."
"It Is too bnd that Antonio will be
disappointed for, of courso, you can
not take tho fish away," said Dorothy.
"Indeed?" ho asked cooly. "Why
not, please?" ,
"Decauso It belongs to my aunt,
Miss Fenn. Thero aro bIriih plainly
reading, 'No trespassing,' and yet you
have trespassed on hor property.
Please throw it back In tho stream."
"Pardon me, but It Is my own," he
said with a puzzled staro at her, with
which was mingled reluctant admira
tion. "Then I will throw It back," said
Dorothy bravoly, for if thero was ono
thing moro than another that sho
loathed to touch it was tho cold body
of a fish.
Ho stood looking at her with nngry
amusement in his eyes as she went to
ward tho fish and touched its brown
It flopped wildly. Dorothy Jumped
back. Her foot slipped on the muddy
bank and she fell into the arms of the
shabby fisherman whoso pipe went to
destruction on the stones below.
"Not hurt, I hope?" said tho fisher
man not unkindly for the brief in
stant Dorothy had lain in hlsarms
had kindled an unquenchable Bpark
In his breast. There was a strango
light in his eyes, and Dorothy's cheeks
were like twin roses as he quickly re
"No, I am not hurt," began Dorothy
strongly inclined to cry because ol
her varied feelings; at that instant
her eyes lighted on the great pistol
which had fallen unheeded from her
Tho strange fisherman spied it at
the samo instant
"Is that yours?" be asked.
"Yes at least it's Martha's 1
brought it along for protection," said
Dorothy with what dignity she could
He actually picked it up and did
not smile as he restored the ancient
weapon to ber.
"I hopo, you will have no occasion
to use It," ho Bald, and Dorotfiy loved
him at once because the smile that
twitched his lips never materialized.
She took tho pistol and held it
rather gingerly. "You will go and
you will put the fish back before it
dies?" sho asked almost pleadingly.
"Yes, I will go, if you deslro it; and
I will put tho fish back Into the
stream but you don't know Antonio;
ho can swear in three languages!" The
youth grasped the trout and deftly
whisked him Into tho brook where he
struggled for a moment before sink
ing slowly down with gently moving
fins until he was out of sight In the
"Thero!'' breathed Dorothy with re
lief. "Thank you so much."
The young man looked atiher hesi
tatingly ; then, as If arriving at some
decision he picked up his rod and
empty reol and made as If to leave
"I wonder why you think I should
leavo my own property," he said with
a whimsical smile.
"Your own property?" echoed Doro
thy. "Why this is part of Miss Fenn's
Ho shook his head In dissent. "Par
don me, but you aro mistaken. Thli
'IB the Whlttakor land you see Mlsi
Fenn's property Is divided from oun
by that brushwood hedgo on the other
sldo of tho brook." He pointed back
along tho way sho had come. "Out on
this side of the brook the dividing
line Is that stono post halt covered
with cat-brlor, and you evidently
crossed tho boundary on to our land
without knowing it."
Dorothy was rosy with mortifica
tion. "Then I am a trespasser, not
you!" sho cried ruefully.
"Never a trespasser on Whlttakoi
land," ho smiled gallantly.
"Thank you and tho fish why, 11
waB your own!"
"Never mind I expect he's thank
ing you for bis life."
"And your horrid Antonio who
swears In tbrco languages?"
He laughed gaily.
"Oh, thero are othor cooks if An
tonio leaves me, but there are not
many ploaaant adventurers."
"I must go now," said Dorothy has
tily. "I hear the luncheon bell."
"If you aro stopping with Miss Fenn
we may meet again," Bald tho youth
eagerly. "I am John Whlttaker, and
Miss PrlsclUa and I used to be great
pals. Sho always kept a pot of ginger
cookies for mo but I havo been away
from the old placo for many years,
and she probably has forgotten mo."
"I don't believe so, for I know the
cooklo pot Is always filled and you
better come and boo. anyway," said
Dorothy over her shoulder.
"Thank you, I will," ho said, and
after Bho had gone ho stared at tho
spot whero she had disappeared for. a
"I believe 111 call on Miss PrlsclUa
this evening," be mused. "I foel an
appetite for ginger cookies."

HOW TRADERS GOT TO FRONT
Gold Northern Papers Containing
First News of Battle of Shlloh to
Soldiers of Grant's Army.
In ISG2, tho rar before I enlisted
In Company II, Fourteenth Illinois
cavnlry, 1 was at Cairo, 111,, Just after
tho bnttlo of Shlloh, with my uncle,
James Proud of Clinton, 111., who took
tho first newspaper containing ac
counts of tho engagement to General
(! rant's army. They woro Chlcngo,
St. Louis and Cincinnati papers.
I shipped as cabin help on n trans
port which wns taking tho Eighth
Missouri from Cairo to Pittsburgh
lauding n few days nfter tho battle.
They had recently been pnld off and
had had no chance to spend thotr
money. I got $15 wages for tho trip.
Wb landed the Eighth Missouri at
Shlloh and took on about 800 of the
Seventh Kansas cavalry, dcBtlncd to a
point below Cairo.
When wo got back to Cairo I met
my undo nnd ho engngod mo to go
with him up tho river with his outfit
consisting of papers, a hogshead of
Ice, kehioiiB, cigars, tobacco, etc., also
two casks of pints and half-pints of
whisky, writes Albert K. Mlnton of
Denver, Colo., in tho National Tribune.
Whisky wns contraband, but I did not
know It nt the time.
It was lmpossiblo for nny one to
got a pass up tho river, so our only
way was to get aboard, hldo and tako
chances. I made tho boat, nil right. I
told the guard I was employed in tho
cabin nnd he passed me In. The boat
was loading army wagons as part of
Its cargo, and my undo got Into ono
of theso nnd camo on In that way.
When daylight camo next morning,
before we arrived at Paducah, the
guard got busy and began to check
up the passengers ana omers. i
bluffed my way through. They soon lo
cated my uncle and brought him out
and put him under arrest, with guard
over him, to be turned over the pro
vost guard nt Paducah. They put him
oft at Paducah.
I kept out of sight until the boat
pulled out for up the river, and when
we arrived at Shlloh 1 .found tho
Eighth Missouri still thero in camp. I
found an old log stable and got some
of the Missouri boys to help me get
my papers and goods up to this stable,
which they did. It was hot I told
them to bring water and we would
make a tub of Iomonude. So we soon
had a fine business going. Papers wore
sold for 25 cents each, containing the
first account of the great battle of
Shlloh, and they went fast. Wo had
My two unopened casks of whisky
had attracted the attention of tho
Missouri boys, and they wanted to
know what waa in them. Deforo I
thought I said whisky. Then 1 wbb
in for It. They begged mo to open
them and said price was no object to
them. I tried to hold them off until
my undo arrived, but it wbb no go.
I supplied their demands, so off they
went to their camp. It.waB not long
until It looked llko tho regiment was
all coming to see me, and I was not
long In disposing of nil of tho whisky,
except a few bottles that I had put
under tho sawdust on ice. My lemon
ado trado was rushing, too, as It was
a very hot day.
About five o'clock in the afternoon a
provost guard drew up In my front
and demanded an Immediate surren
der. The Borgeant had orders to
search my placo for whisky and con
fiscate tho same and arrest tho Bellcr.
Tho officer in chargo made tho In
vestigation, but, strango to say, found
no whisky, Thoy filled up on lemon
ado and left for camp. In a short
time thcMOfflccr came back alone and
called me out to one sldo and said:
"My boy, I found your whisky, but
keep It quiet and I will como tonight
for it Do not sell any moro, and as
soon aB I am relloved I will come and
got a tow bottles." Which ho did and
paid for them.
The next day my uncle arrived, hav
ing been released and furnished
passes to tho front; and wo left for
Grant's army, which was about ten
miles out towards Corinth. Thero wo
disposed of all our papers In a very
short time. Tho next day wo left toi
home, well pleased with our trip an
the way we got out of our troubles.
