"Tins pleasure Ih mine; don't men

with n nod of IiIh lii-nd townrd tho
houvlly breathing colonel. I bound a
bit of rng ovit IiIh tnotith, tnorti to
give hint an excuse for bIIoiicu than
because I had any fear ho would raise

Joined her. and tlBhtly cloned the door.
Tho llBht of tho dlHtant lamp revealed
her face, but her eyes wero serlnim.

that Inst cadet dance? Captain Fox

Wo turned tho corner Into tho wide
entrance hall, Htrolllni; slowly bUIo by
nldo, her fnco turned upward to mine.
Apparently my oyea were upon her.
and I mado somo Inuno reapoiiHo to
hor words, yet I saw tho sentries at
the door cotno stlHIy to attention, and
thoa cross their musket barrela to bar
our exit. I halted as though in sur
prise. "Aro there any now orders?" 1 asked
la tono of authority. "You remember
passing us In, do you not?"
"Wo passed the lady, Blr," tho
older man answered respectfully, "but
no ofllcer."
"Ah. yes, I ace; you aro not tho
immo men who wero on guard when I
arrived. I am Lieutenant Mann, of
General Ilamsny's staff, nnd have been
with Colonel IMcUnoy. Tho lady will
vouch for me."
"Yes. Blr," yet with lingering doubt
In his votco. "No doubt It Is nil right,
lr; but tho ardent nro very strict
tonight. If you have- not tho word I
shall have to call the sergeant."
"Quito right, my mnu; but that Ih
not nocesaary," and I took n step
nearer and bent my head. "Kana
wha." Tho two men shouldered their mus
kets, and tho oldor ono brought tils
hand up In salute.
'Toss, sir," be said soberly, and
Btood aside. Wo went down tho broad
stops, dimly lighted by a distant lira,
my hand touching her arm. Tho In
fantry camp lay between ub and the
road. Tho campflro In front yielded
Just enough light to enablo mo to
study out our surroundings. The band
still played noisily In tho courtroom
abovo. Tho camp was quiet, tho sol
diers apparently sleeping on the
ground. I could pcrcelvo only a few
tonts, showing white In tho firelight,
but tho figures of sentries appeared
hero and thero, slowly pacing their
beats. Had I been ulono 1 should have
crept forward nnd endeavored to slip
by unseen, but 1 wus conscious of the
hand which grasped my sleeve, and
my eyes fell to her face.
"You are my guide tonight." I whis
pered fioftly "llavo you boiiio plan
already devised? Thero must bo In
iilniit action "
"linrdiy that; this has all occurred
bo iilekly, ho unexpectedly, I have
had no time In which to think. Isn't
It best to go straight ahead, and run
thi' chance?"
"I'nst tho guard yonder?"
"Yes; I am not Brcally afraid of
him! Wo have the word, and Captain
Fox and I wero together when 1
piiHHod hero before Ho will remem
ber me, nnd have no simpleton. Only
there may bo ofllcerH Bitting on tho
veranda of the hotel."
"It looltH dark and deserted from
here, nnd the hour Is late."
"True; I supptmo all who uro not
on duty are at the dance. HcsidcH,
there In no other way In which you
can attain tho stables. I I am ready
to try it are you?"
I answered with the pressure of my
hand on the Hirers claupltiB my
Hleovu. There wiib no response; nei
ther were they withdrawn. Sho drew
a long breath, and stepped bravely
forward. The way was clear, easily
followed even in tho darkness, and I
walked close beside her. Within a
few yards of tho fellow she gave vent
to a little ripple of laughter, barely
enough to attract attention, and again
slipped her hand Into tho support ot
my arm. Tho soldier stood at atteu
tlon, but made no effort whatever to
bar our progrt'tia.
We strolled on slowly, passing di
rectly ht'iicnrh the glare of tho lamp.
Wo attempted to talk, but I retain no
memory of a single word that was
uttered. My heart was beating like
nu engine, and my throat was dry, the
lingers of one hand gripping tho butt
of a revolver in my belt. 1 was dimly
aware of the tremor in her voice, tho
pressing closer to mo of her slender
ligure. We passed out beyond the
glow of the revealing light, to where
our eyes were able to sweep tho dark
ened porch. Thore were a dozen chairs
standing back of the rail, but uono
were occupied She gavo a little sob
of relief, botli hands nervously grasp
ing my sleeve.
"Thank (iod!" she said fervently,
"now if we only have llvo minutes
A Step Nearer.
"Tho stables?" I asked. "What
horses are theie?"
"Olllcerfl' mounts; but thero were
suveral others tied nt the hitch rail
an hour ago. They appeared to be
good stock; better even than tho gov
ernment horses."
1 could perceive them dimly, from
where wo skulked in the shadow of
the building. I took a step or two
forward, circling the house, so ns to
better approach tho animals along the
shadow of an orchard fence. I knew
she followed close at my heels nnd,
turning, got a glimpse of her fright
ened face.
"Thero Is no reason why you should
worry," I sum sottiy, tailing her hands
in mine. Now listen to me; your
nerves nru all unstrung; this night's
work bus been too much for you
too much for any girl. And God
knows you huvo dono enough for mo
nlready. Where aro you stopping?
Hero at tho hotel?"
"Y yes."
"Then slip Inside while there Is no
one hanging around; and get safely to
your own room. Thero Is nothing
more you can do. I will take ono ot
those horses yonder and bo off, and I
know the country well enough to ilnd
my way. Onco In the mountains I
shall bo safe. You will do as I Bay?"
To my surprise, slie looked straight
into my fuce, standing motionless. Sho
seemed to catch her breath, as though
it was dllllciilt to speak,
"You mean that Hint I am to go
to my room?" sho asked slowly.
"Certainly; that will bo tho safest
and best thing for you to do. I can
not tell you how grateful I nm to
you; nothing 1 can over do will repay
the service you have rendered me.
You nro n wonderfully bravo girl."
"Do you think o? Oh, but I am
neither bravo nor wonderful. 1 havo
scarcely known what I was doing; It
didn't seem as if there was anything
else I could do. Hut 1 know now; 1
have no doubt any moro unless
unlesB you refuso to let mo."
"1 refuse! 1 do not understand what
1 could refuso. All that remains Is for
you to go to your room. You will bo
perfectly safe hero."
"How will I bo safe hero?" she
asked indignantly. "Do you suppose
they will spare mo, merely because I
am a woman? This hns not been done
In secret; thero are too many who
know my part In your escapo to over
keep tho truth hidden. Colonel Plck
ney will have to make his report and
shield himself from blame. Thero is
not an ofllcer hero who will stand
openly in my defense unless it be
Captain Fox, and ho could not help
mo. Is it under such conditions you
desire 1 remain hero?"
"Hut do you realize what going with
mo will Inovitably mean?"
I "Yes, I realize not only tho Doril
nnd hardflnip. ntit every Issue involved
I made my choice back in the court
house It Is too late to withdraw."
She paused as though unable to Unit
expression, breathing heavily, and her
face sank until I could no longer see
hor eyes
"When when I told Colonel Plck
ney that that you were my husband."
she faltered, driven to It by my con
tinued silence, "I spoke hnstlly. It is
true; for my only thought Just then
was the necessity for Hiving your life
I felt that that I could do no less,
and anil I desired to Justify my ac
tion. They they had to know why I
did it; do joii not understand? I I
am a Union woman; they have trust
ed me ulwnyH these men; even to
night they told mo the countersign be
cause of confidence In my loyalty. I
I was the daughter of nn ofllcer on
(ieneial liamsay's stuff. I could not
let those men think me a traitor. 1 I
had to tell them why It had become
my duty to nld you. There was no
other possible way; no other reason
which would Justify mo In such nu
act; but but that confession left me
utterly In your power."
"In my power, Norecn I Surely you
do not think that 1 will ever take
advantage; that I will ever miscon
strue your real purpose?"
"No! but will you live up to the ob
ligation? Oh, you do not sec the situ
ation nt nil! When I said you wore
my husband I threw myself on your
protection. I I burned tho bontB. I
inn all alone now, unless unless you
stand by me. My father Is dead;
there Is not one person nnywhere to
whom I can go If I remain hero I
shall bo placed under arrest before
daylight charged with aiding your
escape; perhaps charged with aiding
you in your work and 1 have no
friends, no defense. Tom, I must go
an with you!"
I could not ignore her plea, nor
would I mlsconstruo It. It wns fear
which thus drove her to me; she had
more conlldenco in my kindness than
In their Justice that was tho whole
"I Trust You; Is Not That Enough?"
story. Tho poor girl was so fright-
cued she had chosen blindly she
could perceive nothing, realize noth
ing, except tho necessity for immedi
ate escape. My own resolve was in
stant. "Do not say any more, Noreen," I
said soberly, but making no attempt
to touch her. "I understand now. You
mean you wish to rldo with me? You
trust mo fully?"
"1 trust you; Is not thnt enough?
All 1 ask now is, do not leave mo hero
Her fingers clasped my coat, her
eyes suddenly lifted to my faco.
"Promlso mo that, Tom," sho begged
brokenly. "It will bo nil I ask."
"Surely; wo will go together," and
1 gripped her hands tightly In mine.
"Whatever hnppens I will do my best.
Uut wo must go nt onco."
"Yes, and nnd thank you."
Wo crept forward along the shadow
of tho orchard fence, until wo mingled
with tho horses fastened at the hitch
ing rail. I selected among them, as
best I could In the darkness, two that
seemed well adapted to our purpose.
1 helped her silently into the saddle,
thrusting one of my rovolvers Into the
empty holster, and then mounted my
self. "Which wny hnd wo better go?" I
asked, my faco close, our horses
"Along the south road at first;
thero Is u cutoff Just back of the old
"And tho pickets do you know
where they are posted?"
"At the ford of tho Green Hrlar
tho mnln ford."
"Thero nre nono nt Denton?"
"No; 1 do not think they even know
the river is fordablo there; it is not
on tho maps."
Wo rodo forward slowly, my hand
on her bridle rein, keeping in tho
deeper shndnws along tho sldo of the
road, until wo passed beyond tho last
houso of tho village. If tho camp
was not ulurmed for another half hour,
our pursuers would bo given a hard
task. Strango thnt tho Federal
scouts had novcr located the Ueuton
ford. To be sure It was narrow, and
of no vnluo in high water, yet an ideal
place for raiding parties to cross, ami
till those hills beyond wore full of
guerrllln bands eager to strike quick
and got safely nwuy. That they darod
to attack small bodies of troops, and
especially poorly guarded wagon
trains, had been demonstrated more
than onco, and this secret ford gave
them easy opportunity. The Cowans
certainly knew of Ita feasibility, and
the wonder wan they had ncvr --ti
llzeii it before.
The longer I thought the more I
began lo dread the unknown dangers
ahead the gauntlet we must run tie
fore attaining the Confederate lines
We could battle pursuit, but If once we
came Into contact with those Irregu
lars of the mountains merciless, Irre-
sponsible no one could predict the
the night, discard my horse, travel
afoot, and thus avoid encountering
any of those villains I was myself a
mountaineer, and knew tho secret
trails Hut with her besldo me, tho
two of us mounted, such a feat was
almost impossible. I must find her
food and shelter, and we could not
travel on horseback without leaving
u trail unconcealed To be sure, I
knew her of old; that alio was strong
resourceful, fearless yet sho was a
woman to be protected from insult, to
bo guarded against exposure; more,
she was tho woman I loved.
Hut would she bo In uny less danger
If 1 compelled her to return to Lewis
burg? She would bo exposed to In
dignities, to almost certain persecu
tion from Raymond.
"Norecn," I said, turning my face
toward her. "Do you really think It
best to try this ride with mo?"
"You do not wish mo to go?" alio
nsked, ns Instantly reining up. "You
want me to return?"
"No. not that. I havo no thought
but for your own good. Only do you
understand tho perils through which
we must pass In those mountains?"
"Yes, I do understand," sho an
swered soberly, "nnd I comprehend, as
you cannot, the danger of my return
ing to Lewisburg. I will never go
back there; but, If you think It best
for us to part. I will endeavor to reach
Charleston alone."
"You would rather go on with me?"
"I made that choice, but IT you con
sider me n burden "
"No, It Is not that, Norecn," I In
terrupted, touched by tho regretful
tono of her voice. "It was of you I
was thinking, not myself. Then we
go on together?"
She was silent, her eyes on the
darkness nhead.
"It must be your decision." 1 In
sisted. "I made my choice nn hour ago," sho
answered frankly.
1 waited an instant, thlnltlng she
might say more, but sho sat motion
less In tho saddle. Just what her de
cision Hlgnlllcd I could not Judge It
seemed to mo that between two dan
gers sho had simply chosen tho one
sho deemed to bo tho lesser. It was
not affection for mo. but fear of oth
ers, which urged her forward Grasp
ing her bridle rein, I rode on through
tho dark without another word. The
decision had been made; now we must
both of us ubldu the consequences.
Fishing Grounds Yield Abundance of
Profit to Those Who Can Take
Advantage of Them.
When one hears of tho discovery of
a now gold nrlno ono is very apt to
wink tho other cyo nnd hold a trifle
tighter to tho pockctbook. Also, thero
Is no very great rush to tho scene. Hut
It Is a different story when somo al
truist fisherman discovers new fishing
grounds and lets tho world know of
It. Then there Is u real rush of fish

know that such now discoveries aro
often real gold mines.
Such has proved to bo the case with
tho now halibut grounds discovered In

Again wo consider tho southern
kingdom. No better character could
huvo been chosen to lllustruto tho
condition of rulers and people in tho
declining days of Judah's glory. Uz
zlah ruled for 52 years and his reign
wns almost mldwuy between tho duya
of Solomon und those or tho Dnbylon
Inn captivity.
I. Priest and Parents, vv. 1-5. Tho
niinio Uzzluli means "God has holped
me," und no king ever had better ad
vantages In tho way of parents nnd
counselors. To the liilluence of his
parents ho yielded In his youth (v. 4),
followed tho good counsel of Zacha
rluli tho prophet of God (v. fi), nnd
as long ns ho sought tho Lord, "God
mado him prosper." Ancestry und en
vironment aro not, however, a guar
uuty of uny perpetuity in character.
II. Pride, vv. 6-15. Dzziah or Azarlnh
(marg.) mado u lino sturt and his
reign, considered as a whole, wns
ono of the most brilliant in Judah's
history. It bears some striking resem
blances to that of Solomon In that tho
dangerous enemies becamu subject na
tions (v. S). in tho conduct of his
campaigns Uzziah "waxed exceeding
ly strong" (v. 8 It. V.) Uzziah also
greutly Improved und strengthened
Jerusalem and gave much hood to
stock raising und forestry (v. 10). The
secret of all of this prosperity was
thnt ho sought Jehovah. Christen
dom Is not Christianity, yet it is n
fact that in those lands where God
is most highly exulted and most near
ly followed wo witness the greatest
prosperity and men living nmldst the
moat comfortnblo surroundings. Seek
Jehovnh, know his will us revealed in
his word, und do thnt will when
learned, la tho only true basis of real
and lasting prosperity. Uzziah also
gave an exhibition of worldly wisdom
thnt ho strengthened the defenses of
tho nation (v. 9-10). Conlldenco in
God does not paralyze human energy
or mako us presumptuous und cure
leas (I Chron. 27:25-Ul). Uzziah
brought tho army up to u high point
of einciency (v. U-15), using tho
best weapons known in his day. Wo,
likowiso, may bo "marvelously helped"
from tho same sourco and upon tho
samo conditions; viz., that wo "seek
tho Lord" (Eph. 0:10; Phi. C:13).
III. Punishment, vv. 16-21. (1) Pride

tho saddest chuptera in history. Ills
strength becamo his ruin. "When ho
was strong his heart was lifted up."
Poverty, struggle nnd adversity nro
not passports to glory though they
havo strengthened tho moral fiber ot
thousands. The tempting tests of
prosperity, gilded, perfumed and at
tractive nro, howover, fur more hard
to withstand. Prldo always loads to (2)
Presumption Centuries befora God
had warned men that prosperity
would lead to ruin (Dout. S: 11-17;
32:13-1G) nnd Solomon also gavo
warning (Prov. 16:18). Tho subtlety
of prldo is tho gradual way by which
wo como to look upon our prosperity
as tho work of our own hands, there
by forgetting tho sourco of our pow
er and becoming tilled with a feeling
of our own solf-sufflciencr. Tho next
step was that Uzziah assumed to him
self those duties (v. 10) which right
fully and exclusively belonged to tho
priesthood (soo Num. 16:40; 18:7; I
Kings 12::!3; 12:1-4; Hob. 5:4). (3) Pro
testing Wo now behold tho strange
spectaclo of tho king protesting for
tho wrong and tho faithful priests
Azarinh for tho right. A sad specta
clo Indeed when tho head of a nation
oponly avows tho wrong nnd perslstB
in it despite tho protcats ot tho serv
ants of God. Tho last part of verso
18 indicates tho extent und perver
sity of Uzzluh's prldo. Admonition
only aroused the anger of tho nil-conquering
monarch. No honor over
comes (rom disobeying God (I Sam.
2:30; Dun. 5:37). Uzziah apparently
(v. 19) was about to use tho censer in
his hand as a weapon in execution
of his wrath, but God Interfered (1
Peter 0:6-7). Azarlah is saved and
Uzziah becomes a leper.
Wo must not press tho teaching that
all BlckncsB la tho result ot sin (read
Uzziah was forever separated (v.
21) and was in his death "unclean" be
cauBo "His heart was lifted to his de
struction." Thero aro four suggestions In clos
ing: (1) Uzzlah's pride had gono too
far; secretly and perhaps unconscious
ly it had slowly, but surely permeated
his whole nature.
(2) Leprosy was a fitting punish
ment, for it was an emblem of the
foulness ot his sin.
(3) Ills leprous condition was In
marked contrast with what ho had
formerly enjoyed.
(4) His punishment shut him out ef
fectually from the work of his king
domability, strength, oxporienco and
ambition fall boforo tho blighting,
blast ot sin.
