Another Shadowed Altar,
Betrothed, Wedded and Divorced.
BY "NED BUNTLINE."
"Is this the point ." Are you sure
that the beautiful stranger will pass
"Yea. Each day for a week past
she has galloped up this bridle path,
on the same thorough-bred horse,
riding with fearless graci. She is
beautiful in face, exquisite in form.
By fair means or foul, I will possess
her, for my very soul is in chains
since I first set eyes upon her. I have
striven in vain to know who she is.
Mounted as well as the best cavalier
in the park, I sought to trace her
home. Three times observing that I
followed, she has elnded me her
horse far outstripping mine, and yet,
each day, I see her here again and
look on some beauty I had not seen
The two who thus conversed stood
holding their horses by the side of
one of the romantic bridle-paths in
the Central Park. They were flrst
class gamblers, Leslie Durant and
Frank Belphor by name, partners in
one of the great gaming palaces of
"You mean to force yourself on her
acquaintance, if I understand you,
Frank?" said the elder of the two.
"I do, and mv plan is such that it
cannot fall. You observe that vaga
bond boy, smoking a cigar beneath
the tree nearly opposite. He sniekes
to keep fire ready for use. Watch
his motion and mine, as you see the
beautiful stranger approach, and you
will read my plan and see it execut
ed at the same time. Look ! there
A sharp whistle from Frank Bel
phor caused the vagabond boy to
look alive, and aa a lady with tresses
of dark brown hair, floating loosely
from beneath her jet black riding
hat, galloped up the narrow roadway
on a magnificent horse, the young
wretch threw lighted fireworks in
The horse, terrified, bounded to one
side, so qnickiy too, that it seemed
scarcely possible the beautiful rider
could keep her seat then as the
young villain oast another bunch di
rectly beneath the animal, the horse,
wild with affright, sprang forward,
and (1 had madly toward a point
wnere adeep chasm yawnea neiore.it.
"Heavens!" cried Belphor, realiz-
insr the younsr lady's peril, "she is
troina- to her death!"
She was almost on the edge of the
chasm, when a man in the military
garb of an officer .rose from the verge
of the rock where be had been re
clining, seized the horse by the bit
with a slant's strength and held it
rearinsr on the very verge of the
cliff, till the lady slipped from the
saddle and stood by his side.
"I owe you a life, sir," she said, in
alow, tremulous tone. "I owe you a
life, and I shall never forget it."
"Pair lady, the service I have had
the happiness to render is a thousand
times repaid by the thought that
Providence placed me where I could
prevent the sacrifice of such marvel
ous beauty. Pardon me I,a soldier,
reared afar from courtly scenes, may
be rude aod hasty in speech, but I
would not dc discourteous."
"I know it, sir, and as I see stran
gers approaching, will ask you to ad
just my broken bridle rein, and to as
Hist me to mv saddle without their in
terferenee. This card.with my name
and residence, will tell ou where to
call to receive from me a more fitting
acknowledgement mat 1 appreciate
your courage and manly kindness."
She handed him the card just as
Frank Belphor rode hastily up, and
the latter saw the officer receive it.
His face was white anger the cause
of the pallor, for another had render

cnance or a visiting acquaintance.
"I feared a terrible accident and

sistance of strangers unnecessary,"

"Your bridle to ready, and I think
your none is now comp etely con
trollable," said the officer. "Permit
me to assist you, and at the same
time to proffer my card, with my
name ana rank.?' ,
"Gratefully I accept both, and
shall expect an early call," she said,
as the officer lifted her to the saddle.
The gambler heard her words and
saw the look which accompanied
them, and his face was ghastly in his
effort to suppress the rage which fill
ed his breast.
But he did not forget bis intention
to form an acquaintance, at all events
and at all risks.
Suggesting that the lady's horse
waa not under safe control, he asked
permission to escort her as she rode
With dignity the lady declined his
offer on the ground that she did not
need aid from a stranger, and she
preferred to ride alone.
Before he could say another word
she was far away on her spirited ani
mal. Battled, the angry gambler turned
to the offleer, and demanded to see
the card the lady had given.
The demand was refused with the
contempt it merited.
ine roiled libertine, swearing to
have satisfaction, demanded the card
of the officer, who quietly gave it to

"Your destiny, Anna? What do
you mean ?"
"That I have this day bad a strange
adventure, dear mother. I have
looked death square in the face, and
had it not been for the man whom I
term my destiny, you would now be
chlidlees. I will tell you all by and
by, but this I will say now : In him
to whom I allude I have also found
the first person in whom my heart in
its inward throbbings has ever ac
knowledged an interest the first
whose voice has lingered on my ears
after he was out of sight !"
"Anna, have you fallen in love, and
with a stranger?"
"X am in love, I believe, mother,
and with one whom I never saw un
til to-day. But he is not a stranger
to me, to you, or to fame. He is an
officer and a gentleman, one whose
services have been acdnowledged by
deserved promotion, and who has
made his mark with his pen as well

"His name, my daughter ?" J
"Colonel Edgar Mansfield, mother.
Have you not seen It in print?"
"Yes, often ; but tell me how,
when and where you met him."
Anna Marston gave an account of
the danger which she had escaped,
and enthusiastically described the
heroic conduct of her preserver.
''Mother," she said, at the close of
her narration, "I looked down into
his blue eyes while I faltered be
tween life and death, and in their
soulful depths I read my fate. In an
instant I loved him with a love that
will know no change but In death."
"Anna, my child, this is folly ! To
give your love before it is sought, is
unmaideniy to say the least "
"Mother, it is the voice of Nature,
and wbo shall still its pleadings ?

At a later hour, when Airs. Mars

a servant entered and said :
"Colonel Mansfield has called to

will gladly welcome him ; then you

The colonel entered, was received
with a courtesy, a grateful kindness,
which made that queenly matron no
bly prepossessing in bis sight.
The conversation, hinging much
on the service he had been so happy
as to render, continued until the
rustle of her dress announced beauti
ful Anna Marston, our heroine. As
he rose, she glided forward, and with
hands extended to grasp his, ex

The reader, who has noted all the
incidents of the plot laid by neipiior,
needs no repetition of tbem here.
Colonel Mansfield listened, and
with the keen perception of a man of
the world, read tne entire piot in ail
its dark details. And while he re
joiced at its failure, he warned the
lady that bad men seldom give up a
wicked plan because rolled at nrst,
and that she must yet guard against
peril from these men.
Ured on. they could not say why
or. cared not to ask. each in turn
corfided to the other a knowledge of
their respective positions.
The colonel, who had gained his
rank in the volunteer service, was
now about to enter the regular army
as a captain of cavalry. He intend
ed to do so. for in frontier and gar
risen duty he could find leisure to
use his pen,, and the income from
that, added to his regular pay, would
enable him to continue to support
and educate an orpnan sister1 nis

He informed Miss Marston thathis
sister would graduate during the fol

too pure, to go out alone in contact
with the world."
"When vour dear Bister graduates.
I would like to have her here to live

"I would be unjust to both you
and -her to refuse, and if you will, to-
Sjether we will visit ber to-morrow,
or it is Saturday, and she will be all

Anna, noble hearted, far above
the selfishness of too many of the
wealthy daughters of America, now
revealed her soulful nature,- as well
as a part of her history.
"Do not think me bold. Colonel
Mansfield," she said. "1 do not

in a couple or minutes .Lieutenant
Muggins entered. He was not in
unform. He wore a black frock-coat
that was rather seedy. His clothes
bad been good and fashionable once,
but it was "long, long age." His
face was not prepossessiug. It had
that brutalized look which the con

any man. And yet there was some
thing in his air, erect carriage, even
in the manner in which he bowed as
he lifted his bat. that said he had
once been a gentleman.

The colonel toek the note. It was
unsealed. He read it and a sarcastic

did so. It took but a few seconds, and

scraps and threw them on the floor.
"What am I to infer from that action, sir ?
