CITY MARSHAL'S LONG SHOT
"Sat" Qaarterman. Like Achilles
Was Vulnerable in His Heel
City Marshal Brigance has had
complaint made to him several times
of late of shooting of. firearms by
persons unknown along the ? street
between Judge Warner's residence
and the S. A. L. track to the west.
Last evening the marshal was up
that way on the lookout for the
shootists and ran into them just as
they fired a fusilade. One revolver
was fired five times and another two
times by two of the three men in the
party. Marshal Brigance called to
them to halt and instead they ran.
The marshal fired at them and
struck one man in the heel. He fell
and rolling over and over in the
street, yelled that he was shot and
wanted a doctor. The man's cries
were horrible to hear. He proved to
be Richard Quarterman, called
"Sut." Me said he did not do any
shooting and the marshal found no
weapon on him, so is inclined to
think he did not. "Sut" said he
would never have run if he had
known it was Mr. Brigance.
This will probably stop the shoot shooting
ing shooting and will be a lesson to others.
The police force is all about, here,
there and yonder, watching for
speeders, shooters and any other sus suspicious
picious suspicious characters and violaters of
the law. '

a thin, gray fog over the river, which
turned to purple as the light strength strengthened,
ened, strengthened, and we were at the apex of a
great bend, the course of the stream
ahead leading into the northwest. That
was not our direction, and besides I
felt if there was pursuit it would be
safer far ashore. Just as the sun
broke through the mist we came unex

stream leading into the main river
from the south. So thoroughly was it

seeking some such opening. I headed
the canoe straight in, pressing aside
the branches to gain passage, and
found beyond a narrow creek, up which
we managed to paddle for several hun
dred yards. Then I stepped over
board, and dragged the light craft still
higher, until I discovered a place of
concealment behind a huge rotting

Brady, and, with its help, he managed
to get along slowly, although sight of
his face made my heart ache. Thus in
single file we' waded up the tiny
stream, until we attained a ledge of
rocks where our feet would leave no
trail. Over these we toiled, helping
each other, until we came to the up upland,

ere I could be aroused. That some

from the expression of her face, and
sat up, glancing hastily about, expect

"What is it?"
"He is gone, monsieur! Monsieur
Brady is gone."
"Gone! You mean left camp. Why
that is impossible; he could barely
"But he is not here, monsieur," she
insisted. "See; it was there he lay. I
will tell you all I know. I woke up in
the night and thought of him, of how
hard it was for bo strong, a man to be
so weak and ill. Then I got up and
went over quietly to be sure he was

was nervous and could not sleep. No,
he told me he was not in pain, but
complained of being cold. I spread
more leaves over him, and he said that
was better. Then then he took my
hand and kissed it, and begged me to
go back and and lie down. He was
very nice and gentle, and smiled at
me. So I went back, and crept into
my leaves, and tried to sleep. He did
not move, yet I lay there a long while
thinking. I think I cried a little, mon
sieur, for I felt so sorry. At last
slept again. It was just a little light
when I awoke once more, and my first
memory was of him. I went over there
and and he was gone. I could see
where he had rested in the leaves, and
the blanket on the ground, but but he
was not there. I sought for him, but
there was no trace nothing. So I
came and woke you."
I was on my feet, a feeling of dread
tugging at my heart. I felt that I al
ready knew what had happened, yet
could not tell her not now, not until
I was sure.
"He could not have gone far, Rene,"
I said hastily. "Perhaps to the river
for a drink. Come, we will see."
The ground about the camp had
been so trampled by our feet that, at
first, I could not pick up the trail.

holding the crucifix against her face.
I could see the movement of her lips,
but heard nothing; only I knew that
she prayed for 'his soul, and. my own
eyes were moist as I knelt beside her.
Then I lifted her up by the hand, and
we went back up the hill to the camp.
There was nothing to hope for in

Without the exchange of a word we

tried to protest, yet at my first stern
word ceased and wrapped herself
closely in the folds. I was in front,
breaking the trail that she might have
easier marching, when suddenly a
man stepped out of a thicket, and with
gun at my breast roughly commanded
a halt. I paused instantly, uncertain
as to which side the challenger was
on, yet a glance at his face and dress
"Who are yer, an' what do yer
want?" he asked suspiciously.
"I am an officer of the Fort Harmar
garrison," I answered, "with news
from the north. To what command
do you belong?"
"The Kentucky militia," he acknowl acknowledged
edged acknowledged sullenly. "Colonel Oldham."
"Where is your colonel?"
"Back yonder on that rise o ground ;
you kin go on, but I'll keep an eye
on yer." x
We left him, following the direction
pointed out; hearing him call to some
one in our rear, yet paying no heed.
The very ease with .which he had
passed us on was evidence enough of
lax discipline, and small conception
of the danger of the command. There
was a plain track through the snow,
which led to a camp fire blazing cheer cheerily

hair, and eyes that looked as If they
