She slipped closer and He put bis
?no around bar and kissed her lips.
She ran away a few steps. Then, In
deed,i they were back' on the familiar
trail in the thirty-mile bush. A moose
blr^ Was screaming at them. 8he
turned and said :
"I wanted Jrou to know, but I have
.said nothing. I' .couldn't. I am under
a sacred promise. You are a kentle
mon arid you vtlll'not kiss me or speak
Of love again until you have, talked

"I couldn't , help It either. *1 Just

His voice trembled a;- little.
"Not far If you cfene to me, but I
can wait? I will wait." /She took his
hand as they -were wallflng beside each
other and added : '"For you."
. "I, too, will wait," he answered, "and.
si long as I have to." '
Mrs. Harte, walking down the trail
to meet them, bad come neat. Their
Journey out of the wilderness had end
ed, but for ea:ch'a new Ufe had begun.
The husband and' father of the twto'
ladles had reached- the fort only ah
hour or so abead.6f the mounted party
and preparations were being made for
as expedition; to cut off the retreat of
the Indians. Be was, known to moet
of bis friends In: America only as Col.
Benjamin Hare-r-a royal commissioner
wbo had come to tbe colonies to In
spect and report upon the defenses of
his 'majesty. He wore the uniform of
a colonel of the King's guard. There
is an old letter of John Irons which
says that lje was a splendid figure of
am an, tail and well proportioned and
about forty, with dark eyes, his hair
and mustache Just beginning to show
"I shall nof try here to measure my
gratitude." he saldrfo Ur. Irons. "I
will gee you tomorrow,"
"Ton owe me nothing," Irons an
swered^ "Tlye' resrtie of $our wife and
daughter la due* to the resourceful and
famous scout? Solomon Blnkus." ? ,
"Dear old .rough-barked hickory
man 1" the colonel exclaimed. "I hope
.to see him soon.1! . ,? /
He went at j6nce with his wtfe and
daughter to rooms In the fort. That
evening he satisfied himself as to tbe
character and standing of John Irons,
learning thSt he was a patriot of large
Influence and considerable means.
The latter fam(ly and that of Peter
Bones were well . quartered In tents
with a part of the Fifty-fifth regiment
then at Fort Stanwlx. Next morning
Jack went to breakfast with Colonei
Hare and his wife and daughter In
their rooms, after which the Colonel In
vited the boy to take a walk with him
out to the ^little settlement of Mill,
river. Jack, being overawed, was
rather slow In declaring himself and
the colonel presently remarked:
"Ton and my daughter seem to have
got well acquainted."
"Yes, sirj but not as well as I could
wish," Jack answered. "Our Journey
ended too soon. I love your daughter.
si? and I hope you will let me tell her
and ask her to be my wife sometime."
"You are both too young," said the
colonel. "Beside# you have known
each other pot quite three days and I
have known you not as many hours.
We are deeply grateful to you, but it
Is better for you and for her that this
matter should not be hurried. After a
year has passed. If you think you still
care to see each other, I will ask you
to come to England. I think you are
a fine, manly, brave chap, but really
you will admit that I have a right to
know you better before my daughter
engages to marry ypu."
Jack freely admitted that the re
quest wns well founded, albeit he de
clared. frankly, that he would like to
be got acquainted with fls soon as pos
"We must take the first ship hack
to Englond." said file colonel. "You
are both >ourg nn.l In a matter of this '
kind tl;er?- should he no hnste if
your affection is renl. It will be none
tlie worse, for a little keeping."
Solomon Blnkus and Peter.nnd Israel
and John Hones and ?oine settlers
north ofJHorse yaljey arrived next day
with tli'e capture^ Indians, who, under
a military guard, were sent on to the
Great Father at Johnson castie.
Colonel Hare was astonished that
neither Solomon Blnkus nor John
Irons nor his son would accept. any gift
(or the great service they had done
him.'' !
"I owe you more than I can ever
pay," he said to the fajftbful Blnkus.
"kidney Would not be good enough for
youf reward."
( Solomon stepped close to the great
man .and said in a iow tone : > <
"Them yoking 'una- has crowed kind
o' lovesick,- an' I wouldn't wonder. I
don't ask obly one thing: Don't make
no mistake 'bout . this 'ere boy. In the
-bush we hav< a wajr o' plckin' out men.
We see how. they stun' .up to danger

is a reg'lar he-man. I know 'em^when
I see 'em, wfylch ? it's, a sure fact? I've
seen \ all kinds. He's got brains nn'
courage, an' a tough, arm. nil' a good
heart. He'd die fer a friend any day.
Te kaln't do no ' more. So don't make
no mistake, "bout him. He ain't no
hemlock^ bow. I cacalatp there ain't
nb ^ better man-timber nowhere ? no,
sir, not nowhere fn this World ? All ft

llke> So, sir. If y4 feel like doin'
suthln' fer me^-whl<h I didn't never
expect It, whenl done what l did ? I'll
sit y be good to the boy. You'd never
have to be |?hamed o' him."
"He's ' a ' likely Ini," satd Colonel
Hare. "And i am rather Impressed i?j
your . Words, although they present a
view that Is Aew to me. We shall be
returning soon ancf I dare - say they
will presently fcyget ? each other, but
If not, and he becomes a good man ?
4s good a /man as. his father? let us
say ? and she should wish to marry
him, I would gladly pat -her hand In
his." '
At Fort Stanwlx, John Irons sold his
term and house snd stodlc to Peter
Bones and decided to move his family
to Albany, where be could educate hla ,
children. Both be and his wife had
grown weary of the .loneliness of the (
back country, and the peril from which
they had been delivered was a decid
ing factor. So it happened that thq
Irons family and Bolomon went to ?
Albany by bateaux with the Hares. It |
was a delightful trip in good autumn
weather, In which Colonel Hare has
acknowledged that both he and hla wife ,
acquired u deep respect "for these |
sinewy, wise, upright "Americans,^ some
of whom are as well learned, I should
say, as most men you would meet In
8owlng the Dragon's Testh.
That winter the Irons family and
Solomon Binkus went often to the j
tpeetlngs of the Sons of.C.lberty. One j
purpose of this organization was to '
Induce people to m-nufacture their I
own necessltlea and thus avoid buying |
the products of Great Britain. Facto
ries were busy making looms and
spinning wheels ; skilled men and
women tAugtit the arts of spinning,
weaving and tailoring. The slogan
"Home made or nothing," traveled far
and wide.
Late In February Jack Irons and
Solomon Blnkus went east as delegates I
to a large meeting of the 6ons of Lib
erty In Springfield. They traveled on
snowshoes and by stage, finding the
bitterness of the people growing more
Intense as they proceeded. Tliejr found
many women usinc thorns Instead of
pins and knitting one pair of stockings I
with the ravelings ?f another. Thojr i
were atso flossing out their silk gowns |
and spinning the floss Into gloves with .
cotton. All this was to avoid buying
goods sent over from Great Britain, I
The meeting over, Jack anil Solomon
went on J>y stage to Boston ft?r a look
at the tylnyilty.
Tlieyafflved there on the nfth of
March a little a?<>r dark. The moon
was shining. A ?now flurry had whit
ened the streets. The air was/ still
and '*old. They . had their suppers at
the Ship and Anchor. . While they
were eating they heard that a company
of British soldiers who were encamped
near the Presbyterian meeting-house
had beaten their drums on Sunday so
that no worshiper could hear the
preaching. ? s.
And the >v^oi;st of It Is we ore com
pelled to furnish jhem food and quar
ters while they Insult and annoy us,"
said a minister who sat the table.
After pdpper Jack and Solomon went
out for n walk. They heard violent J
talk_ among people gathered at the
strett Corners. They soon overtook a
taOlsy; crowd of boys and young men I
carrying clu^s. In front of Murray's
barracks, where the Twenty-ninth regi
ment was quartered, there was a chat;
terlng crowd of men and boys. Some
of them were hooting and cursing at
two sentinels. The streets were light
ed by rill lamps mid by candles In the
windows of the hSuses;
In CornhUl they1 came upon a larger
and more violent assemblage of > *he
same kind. They nlade their way
through It and saw beyond, a captain,
a corporal and six private soldiers
standing face to. face with the crowd.
Men Were Jeerlrig at them ; \)oyt hurl
ing abusive Milthets. The boys, as
th^r are apt to do, reflected, with some
exaggeration; the passions of their J
elders. If wa% a cijoxvd of rough fel- I
lows'? mostly wharfmen and sailors:
Solomori sensed the danger in the situ
ation. He and Jeck moved out of the I
Jeering -tao^i. Then suddenly a thing
happened which, may have savedV one
or both their five*. The captain drewt
his sword and fla'sbed a dark light
Upon Solomon and called out:
? "Hello, Blnkust What the h? 1 do
you want?" ? ' "
"Who be ye J" Solomon asked,
?yreston." ; ? ' ?
Preston I Cat's blood and gunpow- I
derl VVhat'i *e matter!"
f Preston, an olj comrade of Solomon,
said to him: , J
"Go around to headquarters and tell
them we are cut ofT-by a ?iob and In
a bad mess. Tni a little scared ' I
don't |want to get hurt or do any hurt
ing." . "
Jack tod Solomon passed through
tha guard and hurried on. Then there
wefe hisses ? and cries of "Tories 1
Hotten Tories I" A? the two went on
they heard missiles falling behind them
and simonf the aoldlara.
"They's Join' to be bad trouble thar,"
said Solomon. "Them lads ain't to
blam* They're only doln' aa they're
commanded. It's the pesky king that
orto be hetchelled.".
They were hurrying on. aa he spoke,
and the' words were scarcely out of
?js ?outl1 when they heard the com
mand to Are and a f-1 V vojley? then
loud cries of pain and sTirill curses and
running feet. They turtoed and started
back. People were ' ruling, ont of I
their bouses, some with guns In their
hands., in a nioment the street waa
run. . ~
The soldiers are slaying people," a
man shouted. ' "Men of Boston, wa I
must arm ourselves and fight."
It was a scene of wild contusion.
Tjjey could get no farther on Cornhlll.
The crowd began to pour into side*
streets. Rumors were flying about that I
many had , been killed and wounded.
An hour or so later Jack and Solomon
ware seized by a group of ruffians.
"Hera are the d ? n Torieal" one of
them shouted. \ ?
. "Friends o' murderers 1" was the cry
of another "Let's hang 'em I" I
Solomon immediately knocked the
man down who had called them Tories
and seised another and toased him ao
far In the crowd aa to give It pause.
. r don't mind beln' hung," he shout
ed, -not If It's done proper, but no man
kin call me a Tory lessen my banda
?re, tied, r, without glttin' hUrt. An' If
my handa waa tied I'd do some hol
lerin', now you hear me."
A man back In the crowd let out a
laugh as loud aa the braying of an
ass. Others followed his example.
The danger waa paased. Solomon
shouted : ??.
I used to know Preston when I were
a scout In Amherst's, army flghtln' In

me of , Cardui; I began and ...
kept up Cardui and was so pleased,

"For some - time, then, I did not'/
need Cardui;" Mrs. Wester goes on,
"but later, when change of life cams
on, I had paths across my back cuad l'
sides. ' My head ached down Into my . . $
shoulders ... I was weak and run
down, nervous, and did not eat- I. V
couldn't rest well nights.
