Innocent or guilty, I was inter ested deeply in my general, and with that letter in my possession at least one point of evidence against him would be canceled. I caught at a straw, or rather my intuitions served me. Berante was plainly of Spanish extraction, and there never was a Span iard who was not a gambler. He had used a simile that told me he Was famil iar with the game of poker. Perhaps, being a natural gambler myself, I knew another by instinct. "Major," I said, "I have a trinket that I would like to play against that finger ring of yours." "You impudent boy, what do you mean?" "I mean that I want that ring, and I am willing to risk an equal value against it." "You have nothing to risk. Did you not get a receipt for your effects when captured?" "I did, but I kept one article." I was accustomed to carry with me, ingeniously concealed for use in case I should...

He was retak ing me for one of his comrades. "Reckon," I replied. "Nothiii' thar?" "Nothin' but fodder." Without a word" he started off down the creek. "Come," I whispered to Margaret, as soon as he was ont of sight. She crawled out I helped her to her feet, and we started for the wood. And now suppose we should encounter some of the searchers in the timber? It was more than Jilcely that we would. I fan cied it full of armed men and every man pointing a caTbine at me, ready to call on mc to surrender the moment I reached the edge. And no sooner would they discover the man I had left in the creek than they would dash my brains out with the butt of a gun or shoot me down. We hurried on and at last reached cover.

With the assistance of two captured guns, tb« general leads us against the advancing foe, and, falling upon it like a thunderbolt, puts it to rout. But who is this pursy, red-faced, wild-eyed little man spurring towards the general, every corkscrew curl shak ing like the spring of a bird-cage? It Is Snaffle. Some momentous question is on his mind. "G-g-g-general," he began, before coming fairly within hearing, "w-w will you have the k-k-kindness to ex plain how the d-d-devil it was that w-w-we were not b-b-bagged instead of the enemy?
