During the fierce attack on the fort a
regiment of federals made a move movement

fort and assail it from the rear. Gen.
Hagood ordered our regiment, under
command of Col. Simonton, to meet
that movement and drive the enemy
back. We did as ordered we met
them and we drove them back that
is all that were able to go back, for
between our meeting them and their
backward going there had been a vig
orous and spirited engagement be
tween our regiment and that of the
federals, in which a small number of
our men were killed and wounded.
The Edisto Rifles got through with
no one killed and only one wounded
and he not seriously. A much greater
number of the federals lay dead and
wounded before us some of the dead
lay in less than ten paces from our
line. In front of 'the fort the ground
was strewn with the dead and dying
of the enemy. Their loss was very
heavy ours was not near so great
though we had a number killed and
wounded and among them some good
officers. Captain Samuel Reed who
commanded one of the companies in
the fort was among the killed. He
was from Barnwell county and a fine
citizen and gallant officer. Taking the
fight as a whole, it was a disastrous
defeat for the federals, though it was
well planned and came near too near
being a successful surprise and
capture of the fort. The fort was
afterwards very much strengthened
and other guns mounted and wel
supplied with proper ammunition, but
the federals never again made an at
tempt to force the line of our de
fenses on James Island by assauli

nothing like a battle. Soon after the

said after the fight that a captain in
command of one of the companies in
the fort, after he had exhausted his
supply of grape and cannister, had
his guns loaded with bottles and
20-penny pails. I doubt if this was
true, but it was true that he had the
sabots on grape shot intended for a
10-inch gun, smashed, and the shot
shoveled loose into 8-inch guns. The
infantry support to the fort was in
readiness a short distance in the rear.
Very early in the morning of the 16th
day of June '62, the federals with a
force of about 3000 men made a fierce
and vigorous assault upon the fort.
They' had succeeded in capturing our
pickets during the night without rais raising

There wasn't a doubt of it. It was
an exact reproduction of a photograph

But her friends! They would recog

think of all they would have to say.
She looked for the address yof Ner

all druggists" was the modest state

pharmacy and learned that although
the birthplace of the nostrum was

wholesale agency in town that might
know something about it and its ad

the salesman, in turn, directed her to
a certain advertising agency on the
fifteenth floor of a nearby skyscraper.
Margaret found an office door which
bore on its ground glass upper half
the words, "The Orion Advertising

The man behind the big mahogany
desk rose politely as she entered.
'Good morning. Won't you sit
down?" he began pleasantly, indicat
ing a chair in close proximity to the
desk, and when Margaret was seated
he resumed his chair. "I am entirely
at your service," he went on: "What
can I do for you, Miss. The boy
didn't give me your name."
Margaret referred to the clipping.
'According to this, I am Miss Mary
Mullin, of 4322 Douglass street," she
said, with the most-. caustic manner
she could assume.
'If it's in print it must be true,", he
Must it? Well, it isn't. And I
think you know: It isn't. But since
you prefer not to understand I'll
explain the situation," which she did
In a few words.
"And," she proceeded indignantly.

When the door had closed on his
fair J visitor, George Stephenson
reached for. the telephone and called
for a number. "Is that you, Bob ?
You remember the photograph of a
girl you had stuck up on your man
tel, the one you said you didn't know
and gave to me because I well, be
cause I liked .it? Well, I've tried to
locate her, ever since and failed, and
then I struck on a bright idea of run
ning a. fictitious ad with her picture.
I thought that would bring some sign
of life, and it sure did. Bob, she's
just been here, raging mad, but she's
glorious. You ought to see her. She's
a wonder! I couldn't find out her
name. She; wouldn't tell it. I wish
you'd try to think where you got that
photograph. Strange you'd forget!
What's that? Youll try to help?
You're a brick, Bob. No, I can't to
night, thanks. Tomorrow night! All
right. Good by."
At Beven the next evening, George
presented himself at Bob's front door
and asked for .his host. He was ush

There was a sound, soft, almost in
articulate, and he turned.
In the doorway, in an exquisite frock
of filmy white net, stood the girl
of whom he was dreaming, the girl
with no identity,! the one Bob had
promised to help find. He had done
amazingly well! .
Margaret was perceptibly stunned
"So this is Bob's friend!" she realized
"It's odd how things come out." And
she reddened at the thought of her
conduct of the day before.
She held out her hand. "My broth brother
er brother won't be down -for a minute. He
told me to see that you weren't bored,"
she said. 1
"Yes, my brother Bob."
"I don't understand. I've been here

"Oh, I've been in California until
week ago. Sit down, won't you, and
we will talk it over."
"But Bob said he didn't know you
when I took your picture!"
"His idea of a joke, I suppose! But
is that how you got my picture? And
why, please, did you use it the way
"Because," he hesitated. "Because
I was desperate to discover your iden

to find out who you were."
