The Ghost of the Lieutenant.
With eyes on those figures blotting
out the fire, their discordant yelling
deadening all other sound, their whole
attention centered now on savage ven
geance, crept over the log, and
crouched low beside the motionless
body. Ugh! but I dreaded to touch it,
to feel the awfulness of clammy flesh.
As the upturned face, with staring
dead eyes, revealed indistinctly by the
red glimmer, met my gaze, it was like
looking into my own. For an instant
it seemed as if I stared down at my myself,
self, myself, bent above my own insensate
body. A ehudder ran through me, my
hands shaking as with palsy. Yet I
rallied, crushing back the benumbing
horror of that vision, as the hateful
voice of Lappin rose above the din.
Recklessly I stripped the red jacket
from the body, ripped in the struggle
with Lappin, and showing clearly the
rent made by the knife, and crawled
back over the log, to put it on.
Beyond my cover, not a dozen feet
away, was a shallow ravine, and the
light streaming through tree branches,
fell upon a clay bank, gleaming a yel yellowish
lowish yellowish white. I reached it on hands
and knees, streaking my face with
moist clay, until it must have been
ghastly, and plastering even more on
my hair in horrible representation of
the scalped victim. 4

delay, I stole forward to the edge of
the wood, pausing there a moment to
muster my courage, and take one last
glance at the scene revealed by the
firelight. All the center of the open

ing forward about the prisoner, who
stood bound to a stump, facing me.
Other savages were running swiftly
back and forth bearing armsful of
dried wood, which were cast down at
Brady's feet, the mass already rising
above his knees. Excitement was evi
denced in shouts, and wild cries, in
frenzied leaping, dancing, and mad
gesticulation. The Shawnee chief
stood silent, with folded arms, but
burning eyes, while Lappin grasped
mademoiselle's shoulder, holding her
to place in the front rank of those red
demons, his voice shouting forth or orders,

them. Once he twisted in his bonds,

some word, but changed his mind, and,
for the first time, a look of pain swept
into his face. Lappin saw the effort,

Would they know, understand, what

from a stupor, and I turned about. The
ground was a jumble of things, as if I
looked upon a battle field, yet this was
not what I really saw in that first swift
glance. A man a white man ran
leaping across the flame-lit opening,
kicking aside the blazing fagots of
wood already scorching Brady, hurling
them to right and left in frantic haste,
until he made passage through. I
caught the glimmer of a knife in his
hand; and then, by main strength, he
dragged the weakened prisoner clear

exhausted on the ground. As the fel
