1 Autobiography of Private Orthorla.
If tticro was one thing on which Go
lightly prided himself more than an
tthcr, It was looking like "an officer
ind n gentleman." Ho unld it was for
the honor of the service that he attired
himself so elaborately, but thoso who
knew him best said that it' was just
personal vanity There was no harm
nbont Qollgbtly not an on nee. He
recognized a horse when he saw one
and conld do tnoro than fill a cnntlo.
He played a very fair gamo at billiards
and was a sonnd man at tho whist ta

lint this ead thins happened.
Uo was going down from Dalhonsle.
at the end of his leave riding down.
He had cnt hi? leavo as fino as ho dared
and wanted to coino down in n hurry.
It was fairly warm at Dnlhovie,
and, knowing what to espeot below, he
descended in a new khaki an It tight
ilttlng of ndollcato olive green; a pea
cock bine tie, whlto collar and n snowy
white solah helmet Uo prided himself
on looking neat oven when ho was tid
ing post. Ho did look neat, and ho was
so deeply concerned about bis appear
ance before ho started Hint ho qui to for
got to tako anything hnt eomo email
change with him. Ho left all his note"
at tho hotel. .His bervants had gouu
down the rnad beforo him. to bo ready
in waiting at Pathaukoto with n change
of geat. That was what ho called trav
eling in "light marching order." Ho
was proud cf his faculty of organisa
tion what wo call bundobnst.-
Twenty-two miles out of Dalhonsle
it began to rain not n m ero hill show
er, but a good, tepid mousoonlsh down
pour. Golightly bustled on, wishing
that ho had brought an umbrella. The
dnst on tho roads turned into mud, and
tho pony mired a good deal. So did
Qollghtly's khaki gaiters. But ho kept
on steadily and tried to think how
pleasant the coolth was.
His next pony was rather a brnto at
starting and, Golightly's bands being
slippery with rhe rain, contrived to get
rid of Golightly at n corner. Uo chased
tliu animal, caught it and went ahead
briskly Tho spill had not improved his
clothes or his temper, nnd ho hud lost
one spur. Uo kept tho other one em
ployed. IJy tho timo that stage was i ,..
ended tho pony had had as much oxer-1

forliotoowticta.Tli!i had turned tho pith of his huge and
snowy solah topeo into an evil smelling
dough, nnd it had closed on his head
like n half opened mushroom ; nlo tho
greon lining was beginning to run.
Golightly did not eay nny thing worth
recording heie. Hotorooff nndtqueczed
up ns much of tho brim as was in his
eyes and plowed on. Tho back of tho
helmet was Hupping on his neck, nnd
siao, ana tne next tnmg nu wiew wus
that a constable was attached tucuch of
his legs and arms, while tho station
master was trying to cram a mail bag
over his bead
There was a very fair scnflle all round
the booking office, and Golightly re
ceived a nasty cnt over his eye through
falling against a table. Dot the con
stables were too much for him, and
they and the station master handcuffed
him eecnrely As eoon as tho mall bag
was slipped, he began expressing his
opinions, and tho head constable said
"Without doubt this is tho soldier Eng
lishman we required, listen to the
abuse I" Then Golightly asked tho sta
tion master what the this nnd tho that
tho proceedings meant. The station
master told him ho was "Private John
Hlnklo of the regiment, 6 feet 0
inches, fair hair, gray eyes nnd a dissi
pated appearance, no mcrks on the
lx)dy," who had deserted a fortnight
ngo. Golightly began explaining nt
great length, nnd the mora he explained
tho less tho station muster believed him.
Ho said that no lieutenant could look
micli n rnfllan as did Golightly, and
that his instructions were to send his
cant mo under proper escort to Umrlt
sar. Golightly was feeling very damp
and uncomfortable, and tho langnago
ho nsed was not fit for publication,
even In an expurgated form. Tho four
constables saw him safo to Umritsar in
an "intcrmediata" compartment, and
i ho spent tho four hour jooruey in abus
ing them as fluently us his knowledgo
of the vernaculars allowed.
At Umritsar ho was bundled ont on I
tho platform into tho arms of a corporal
and two men of tJio regiment. Go
lightly drew himself np and tried to
carry off matters jauntily. Uo did not
feel too jaunty in handcuffs, with four
constables behind him and the blood
from tho cnt on his forehead stiffening
on his left check. The corporal was not
jocular cither. Golightly got as far as.
"This Is n very absurd mistake, my
men," when tho corporal told him to
"stow his lip" and come along. Go
lightly did not want to comu along. Ho
desired to stop and explain. Ho ex
plained very well Indeed until tho cor
poral cnt in with "You a orficerl It's
tho like of you as brings disgraco on
tho likes of ns. Dloomin fine orflcer
yon are I I know your regiment. Tho
Rogues' March' Is tho quickstep whero
yon couio from. You're u black shame
to tho service"
Golightly kept his temper nnd bogan
explaining all over again from the be
ginning. Then ho was marched ont of
tho rain into tho refreshment room and
told not to make n qualified fool of
himself. Tho men wcro going to run
him up to Fort Govlndghar. And "run
ning np" is a performance almost as
undignified us tho "Prog March."
Golightly was nearly hysterical with

miles from Pathankoto. the last pony
fell dead lame, and Golightly was
forced to walk, ilo pushed on Into
Pntlinnkoteto find his servants. Ho did
not know then that his khitmatgur had
stopped by tho roadside to get drunk
and would couio on tho next day saying
that ho had sprained his ankle. When
ho got Into Pathankote, ho couldn't
