“I never frequented this road,” exclaimed Captain Artie Lyon, commanding the fourth company of the Riverlawns. “Doesn’t it run into that cut where you saved Kate Belthorpe and the rest of her party from that gang of so-styled ‘Home Guard’ ruffians?”

“I believe it does,” was the slow response, and Major Dexter Lyon blushed; for although the incident referred to had occurred many months before, it was still fresh in his mind, as were also the beautiful face and bewitching eyes of the maiden. The young major was but nineteen years of age, and it could hardly be said that he was in love, yet a warm attachment had sprung up between these two people. “Does your wound trouble you in riding, Artie?” he went on, to change the subject, and thus prevent his cousin from teasing him in his most susceptible spot.

“Not enough to count.” Artie paused to urge his lagging horse ahead. “I wonder if any of Morgan’s desperadoes are in this neighborhood. I understood from what Captain Ripley said that they were trying to overrun the whole State. It’s a pity we haven’t more of such first-class sharpshooters around as he commands.”

“What’s the matter with Life Knox’s tall boys, Artie? I reckon they can shoot about as well as any of Ripley’s men, even though they are not as well drilled. If I know anything about it, Life is a whole host in himself.”
