[255] doubt. At length a book is found — a pocket Bible, with an entry on the fly-leaf-
Germain, Blue Ridge, Georgia.

Armed with this entry as a clue, the White avengers are soon acquainted with the leading facts. They learn that Germain's family consisted of nine persons, so that five of them may still be living in Grey Eagle's camp. Two of the girls, Lucy and Ada, are young ladies, Lucy being nineteen, Ada sixteen years of age. Adelaide is a child of nine, and Julia barely seven. These children must be sought and found.

Grey Eagle makes for the Red Fork of Arkansas River, by which he means to cross into the Public Lands, lying westward of the Indian Nations. Finding the infant an encumbrance, one of the hunters knocks it on the head, and flings it to the wolves. Lucy and Ada are bestowed on the big chiefs; but the pursuers are so hot that Grey Eagle has no time to dally with his prize. Passing the North Fork of Canadian River, he thinks of slipping into Texas, when his band is caught in flank by Colonel Miles, commander of a party on the Red River.
