"Take thot, yez omadhaun, ye!" the Irishman cried. . "Shure an' it's Terrence O'Flanagan wull break dhe hid av innywan phwat ta}Jes such liberties wid him, begorral" Then he thr-ew the club down and limped to the lltable and into it. been pursued he would miss his pursuers by l?Oing back on another street. By a stroke of bad luck, however, he was seen by a couple of the men who had been in the bar-room when the trouble began and who had carried the captain back into the building and brought him to. They were on their way to their qua rters, and right behind them was the captain, also heading for his quarter s. His head was bandaged, and he was in anything but a good humor, as may well be supposed. Dick, delitJhted by the manner in which the Irb1hman had aided him, darted around the corner of the stable and ran' along its side till he came to the alley at the rear. Of course, the inmates of the bar-room, both soldiers and citizens, had followed the British captain and had got to ,, the door just as the Irishman disappeared in the stable.

Tlte captain gave utterance to an exclamation, and came running forward. As his eye fell upon Dick he gave vent to a cry of rage and delight commingled and dashed toward Dick, drawing a pistol as he ran. "Come on, men!" he cried; "help me capture this dastardly young rebel!" The two followed the captain, and soon a chase was in progress, for Dick, having taken the alarm, was running away with the speed of the wind. He whirled and ran back toward the river, for he feared he would be headed off if he attempted to go on toward the west. The captain kept yelling for the fugitive to halt, and soon a large crowd had assembled. Dick attracted considerable attention as he went dashing down the street, and once or twice men got in his way, as if to try to stop him, but he knocked some of them down, A PLUN
