    When the young warrior awoke, they again questioned him. It was a scene no mortal can satisfactorily describe. The damage to this herd was eighteen and fourteen, in favor of Cody. As a sop to the Cerberus of sensationalism, he did occasionally condescend to heighten his effects by exaggeration. Molasses and water is not a very intoxicating beverage.

    He was now privileged to prefix the title "Honorable" to his name, and later this was supplanted by "Colonel"--a title won in the Nebraska National Guard, and which he claims is much better suited to his attainments. But they manifested no such desire. His companions bent their bows, one arrow passing through Will's hat and another piercing his arm--the first wound he ever received. Two teams hauled a wagon up the steep incline, the double team returning for the wagon left behind.

    The three miles to the station were covered in just ten minutes, and the Grand Duke had the ride of his life. The creek was reached on the 17th of July, and at daylight the following morning Will rode forth to ascertain whether the Cheyennes had crossed the trail. This successful sadly repressed the hostilities for a space. Two o'clock passed without a sign of bear, save some tracks in the snow. He directed us to ride down into the valley and tarry there, so that we might not startle the timid animals, while he continued part way up the hill and halted in position to get a good shot at the first one that came over the knoll.

When Will reached Rochester he found his son still alive, though beyond the reach of medical aid. Last of the Great Scouts book wintry air had put a keen edge on Will's appetite, and hitching his tired horse, he shot one of the lately scorned sage-hens, and broiled it over a fire that invited a longer stay than an industrious bear-hunter could afford.

He was also pleased to note that General Custer made one of the party. The Indian buffalo-hunt followed the Terpsichorean revelry, and all could enjoy the skill and strength displayed by the red huntsmen. I smelled trouble, but turned and jogged along as if I hadn't seen anything.

Will came up with the others, and when we pointed out to him the supposed chest of gold he smiled, saying that he was sorry to dissipate the hopes which the ladies had built in the tree, but that they were not gazing upon anything of intrinsic value, but on the open sepulcher of some departed brave.

I uttered no word for very awe; I looked upon one of nature's masterpieces. The deer was handed over to the commissary department, and we rode on.

The men were Last of the Great Scouts book toward the ford, firing as they came, and getting a warm return fire. However, he got on, and Will told him to follow up, as he wanted to go ahead to where the general was. Will visited his old Kansas home, and the sight of tall and stately trees filled him with a desire to transport some of this beauty to his Nebraska ranch.

This Indian dropped his bridle-rein and threw up his rifle; but before it was at his shoulder Will had fired, and he fell forward on his face. This old chieftain offered Will four mules if he would return the war-bonnet and accouterments worn by the young warrior and captured in the fight, but Will did not grant the request, much as he pitied Cut Nose in Last of the Great Scouts book grief.

Two or three more shots rang out, and from the bound Last of the Great Scouts book horse gave Will knew one bullet had reached a mark. Julia and Will remained with her throughout the night. The site's critical consensus reads: "The Last Boy Scout is as explosive, silly, and fun as it does represent the decline of the buddy-cop genre.

The Indians fired the lodge. Brigham expostulated, and in such plain language, that Will, laughing, was on the point of unhitching him, when a cry went up -- the equivalent of a whaler's: "There she blows! At the outset Will permitted his horse to set his own pace, for in case of pursuit he should want the animal fresh enough to at least hold his own.

It had made the fatal mistake of gloating over its villainy. There was too much artificiality about stage life to suit one that had been accustomed to stern reality, and he sought to do away with this as much as possible by introducing into his own company a band of real Indians.

Will surmised that the prisoner must have a horse hidden hard by, and a bit of a search disclosed it. The English exhibited an eager interest in every feature of the exhibition--the Indian war-dances, the bucking broncho, speedily subjected by the valorous cowboy, and the stagecoach attacked by Indians and rescued by United States troops.

Winter closed in, and with it came the memories of the trapping season ofwhen he had laid low his first and last bear. At this time Wild Bill was a well-known scout, and in this capacity served the United States to good purpose during the war.

As he drew near the ford, he resumed his sharp lookout, though scarcely expecting trouble. As the dugout was neared he let fall one of the hens, and asked the chap following to pick it up, and as the obliging rear guard stopped, Will knocked him senseless with the butt of his revolver.XXVI.
