They Got The Ambulance Under Some Trees, Unfastened The Mules And Led Them Away, Leaving Me Alone, Without Even The Driver.

The soldier had thoughtfully led up Pete for Faye to ride back, and the mules were needed to assist in pulling the wagon up.

Fortunately the wagon was caught by a tree and did not go entirely over, and it so happened, too, that it was the one loaded more with furniture than anything else, so not much damage was done.

Our pilot had left us some time before, to hurry on and get any passengers that might come in the stage that runs daily between Helena and Bozeman. As soon as I began to look around a little after I was left alone in the ambulance, I discovered that not so very far ahead was an opening in the trees and bushes, and that a bit of beautiful dry land could be seen. I was looking at it with longing eyes when suddenly something came down the bank and on into the water, and not being particularly brave, I thought of the unprotected position I was in. But the terrible monster turned out to be our pilot, and as he came nearer, I saw that he had something on the wagon - whether men or women or mere bags of stuff I could not tell.

But in time he got near enough for me to see that two men were with him - most miserable, scared tourists - both standing up on the seesawing boards, the first with arms around the pilot's neck, and the second with his arms around him.
