'It is time fo] all honest people to be In bed.' That meant that the youngeman had to leave. "His fair daughter soon convinced him that was too trivial an obstacle to place in their way. It was not long until 'the kindliest feeling' changed; a bitter quarrel arose between Davis and Taylor--one which never abated. "A court-martial had been odered at the garrison.

"The transfer of Davis from a sec- ond lleuten'mt in the infantry to first lieutenant and adjutant of the First dragoons in 1834 took him away from Fort Crawford to Fort Gibson, Ark. But if Colonel Taylor had hoped that the removal of Davis would change the attitude of his daughter, he was mis- taken. Distance did not affect their romance in the least--in fact, it was chiefly on account of the separation that Davis resigned his comnission that year. In, June, 1835, he severed all connections with the United Sta'tes army, "Then It was, Certain roraantlclsts tell us, that he returned to Fort Craw- ford to settle the dispute with Taylor.

But neither" time nor distance had abated the stubborn father's feelings, and lie flatly refused his consent to their marriage. And so, regardless of silly feuds and stubbotm fathers, It Is said, the young couple planned to elope. At night, choosing the darkest hour before dawn, they would steal forth from the fort; escape to the other side of the river; be secretly raarried at McGregor, and return to the fort as mai and wife.
