Probably the rudest form of tattooing is that In vogue among the aborigines of Australia and certain tribes of negroes. The method adopted by these races consists In cutting gashes on the skin, arranged In patterns, and then filling the wdunds with clay, these forming raised scars. This mode, as opposed to the more com mon device of pricking with a needle, is practically confined to the black races, Among certain African tribes, notably the Kaffirs, tattooing la an honor bestowed upon a warrior who has distinguished himself In war.

Peter clambered back Into the saddle, and gripped my rein. Tome on," he said disgustedly, kicking the black In the side. "It's a ways yet afore yer lie down." We rode steadily, and at a good pare. Occasionally the older man swore solemnly, but Peter never uttered a sound, not even turning his head at my attempts to draw blm Into conversation. The situation mystified mo, but It becamo more and more evident that I should havo to wait until morning before learning the truth. Nel'her Peter nor the Indian seemed to belong to the class with which the army was recruited. Peter appeared servant, and more like a his riding was atrocious. And the lieutenant! There came back to me the haunting memory that he had Joined IVlavan as a volunteer the Dragoon uniform sufficient proof that be was neither of tho original foraging party of Hessians, nor of Grant's detachment of Hangers. Yet these others wore green and white, and must, therefore, have been in Grant's command. How did the four manage to escape from our attack, evidenUy animated by one purpose? Why was Grant so anxious to learn if I bad seen the lieutenant, and whether we had a party out seeking him? Not one of these questions could I answer; not one could I even guess at with any degree of satisfaction. We were coming out of the low, swamp lands into a more thickly settled, and cultivated region. Rail and stone fences could be seen on either side the road, and we passed swiftly by a number of farmhouses, some simple log structures, although one or two were more pretentious. It msy have been two miles further along, when the lieutenant, and his Indian companion, wheeled suddenly to the right, and, without slackening speed, rode through an open gate, and up a graveled roadway, circling through a grove of trees to the front door of a great square mansion. II was dark and silent, a wide porch in fmnt supported by huge pillars, a iroad flight of steps leading from the driveway. The Indian ran up these, leaving the lieutenant holding his horse, while we drew up some yards to tho rear I heard the boom of ths of Iron knocker, followed by a gleam through a lower window. Then light a negro's voice spoke, and the front figures, door opened, disclosing two with sputtering candle in hand. one beThe two exchanged a doxen words asked ImpatlenUy: fore the lieutenant "Is it all right Tonepah?" atThe taciturn Indian made no at speech, but gave an exprestempt officer sive gesture, and the young turned tn his saddle.

The flickering candle yielded but glimpses of great rooms, beautifully decorated, and, almost before I rcaliied what was occurring, I bad been thrust Into a square apartment, tho door behind me closed and looked.

Whoever these fellows might be, whatever their purpose, I had no Intention of remaining in their hands a moment longer than necessary. Somehow tbelr silence, their mysterious movements, naa impressed me witn a sirange ieei-ln- g of fear which I could not analyze. I could not believe, myself a mere prisoner of war, but rather as being held for some private purpose yet to be Yet the room offered little promise It was nearly square, the walls of stone solidly Imbedded In mortar, the door of oak, thickly studded with nails, and the two small windows protected by thick iron bars. It was a cell so strong that a single glance about convinced me of the hopelessness of any attempt at breaking I was not there to exceed ten minutes when, without warning, the lock clicked, and Peter came In. I sat up quickly, but as instantly he had closed the door, and actually stood there grinning cheerfully. I would never have believed him capable of so pleasant an expression but for the evidence of my own eyes. "Spring lock," ho grumbled, a thumb over bis shoulder, "opens outside." Whatever resemblance to a soldier he might have previously shown while in uniform was now entirely banished. Bareheaded, his bald dome of thought his round, shining in tbo candle-ligh-t, solemn face, with big Innocent gray eyes gating at me, an apron about his fat waist, the fellow presented an almost ludicrous appearance. Somehow voy heart warmed to him, especially aa I perceived the tray, heavily laden, which he bore easily on one arm, and the towel flung over his shoulder. And aa I stared at him hla movements becamo professional. Silently, solemnly, his mind strictly upon his duties, he wiped off the table top, and arranged tho various dishes thereon with the greatest care, polishing cups and glasses, and finally placing one of the chairs in position. Stepping back, napkin still upon arm, he bowed silently. I took the seat indicated, and glanced up into bis almost expressionless face. "Peter, you old fraud," I said swiftly, "hare you eaten?" "Not as yet, sir," his Tolce showing Just the proper tone of deference, hla eyes staring straight ahead. "Then take that chair and alt down." "Ob, no, sir; indeed, sir, I am not at all hungry, sir."

There la food enough here for three men, and I want company." He rubbed his band acroBS his lips, and I caught a gleam of intelligence tn his eyeB.
