A few shots were heard in the rear. "Morgan's cavalry are shooting some more stragglers," shouted some one. Si was getting desperate. He unrolled the counterpane and slashed it into strips with his bowie. "My mother made that with her own hands," he explained to a comrade, "and if I can't have the good of it no infernal rebel shall.
