Trgarthn took train and reached kls
awn quarters, and hit thought dwelt a good
deal about If iaa Churchill by the way. To
hit mind aha was th first real artist he had
seen apoa th stage, and for th first time,
at least, bar voice had taken him captive.
Shakes pears for ono had found an actress
worthy to interpret him, and surely no other
taa who had ever lived could hav created
a part rweet and bright enough for to as
trojaite a creator to play in. He smoked
a cigar ia company with hit own agreeably
guttered fancies, and than he went to bed
and 1aat soundly and forgot them. Be
wa net ntarly to moch impressed with Miss
Churchill in th morning; and though th
tuufihad 1m thoaghtt pleaa&nUy one or
twice, he got throagh th day's buclast
with no great hindesano from her.
LaU aftarnaon f oand hhn at headquar
ters, with Uttl more than time to drasa for
dinner. LieutananVcoloaal Pollard had re
turned the aetiv oornmand of the corps,
and took tha hand place at th mess-table.
Tregaxthen was presented, and formed a
poor opinion of th bioatod old warrior,
who met him with a diarepataUe Jest, and
told ttralghtway aa objectionable tsory
which grated era. the cornet's ear. 'Whan
the real business of th dinner began th
manners of the officer in command ware not
at all to th taste of th young gentleman,
who waa, possibly, fastidious. Th col
onel! eye goggled and hit face crimsoned
as be strained over th table to get at bit
soup, and hit wicked speech was half choked
by wheexings and panting. He gobbled at
a gentleman ought not to gobble, and ha
drank at a gentleman ought not to drink.
When dinner wa over the naughty old man
told shameless tales of hit youth and man
hood; and Tregarthen, who had been bred
to rvrac old ag, and to think purity at
dsslrable and lovely in a man at in a wo
man, found th evening almost insuppert-
" Somebody oturht to nut a ttop to all
that," ha told Captain Haroourt after din
ner, to that gallant officer' great astonish
ment "In a society of gentlemen th
thing U intolerable. We serve a lady," he
added, with the generous pomposity of
youth, " and that of it -If might teach us

" I shaD osaka it my business, returned
Tregarthen, la some beat at the captain's
contemptuous wonder, " to represent to
Colonel Pollard that at least on of bit of

and thinks H unbecoming."
" Dont be an ass, Tregarthen,n said Cap
tain Haroowt Tregarthen manned hit
bead stiffly, aad marched away. Th cap

the story of tb youngster's aaaaooantabl

court, M it about th best tort in the ser

Captain Harcourt's friends concurred
with him, and the story of Tregarthen't
presumption spread rapidly throughout th
regiment Vxt day he was treated with
evident coldness, and some of bis brother
efflosrs who had hitherto been on friendly
termt with him took paint to avoid him.
He was not unpopular to begin with, but fct
was th general sens of the corps that the
tort of inaotenc he had shown deserved re
buke. Be must be road to tee at once that
this was not th too to take.
That evening there came a time when the
conversation at th head of th table was
animated and loud. Th youngster at the
lower end smoked and listened, and got little
good by listening. It was nothiog less than
tb reputation of a lady which so excited
the seniors. Ons man held oat against the
rest, and avowed his belief that tb lady
wa chaste as ice and pure as snow. Th
others naturally laughed at him, for the
woman be defended waa an aotints; and ia
those days it may be better now aa eatress
was anybody'! fair game at a mess-table.
" Wait a bit," said th colonel, with his
wicked, bronchial old ohuck.. "111 tU
yoo a story r opes."
Everybody listened, aad the colonel told
Us story. . It redounded infinitely to hit
wa credit as a man of gallantry, and in
lately to the discredit of the lady whose
personal charms he sang and whoa char
acter bs stol.
" Mow, whodo you think that was! " asked
th olonei. Nobody answered, and the fat
old reus relit his cigar and gazed about him
with a look ef twinkling triumph. " Vone
other," he said, after a pause, " than our
chaste young friend, Miss Churchill. What
do you say to that?"
It happened at this moment that the col
onel1 twinkling yes looked full into the
eyes of Tregarthen, wa wa bending for
ward a little at th bottom of th table and
watehiag hi "-m mending officer with an
e-mreasson of saturnine disdain. Thehiaek
browed cornet half rose ia hi plaoe.
"I beg your pardon, sir," he said slowly
and distinctly. "You seemed to address
year question to me. If you press me for
an answer I mast give yoa one."
. It was geoarally Jolt tnat th hour had
come, and the assembied gentlemen braced
themselves te support stborty. If the
colonel had understood taa aitaatroa be
would probably hav snubbed the qnerist,
by leaving him unseen aad aaanewered.
But, being taken by surprise, be rapped
out, " Well, sir! " and stared at th lntrudsr
wlth a look half surprise, half anger.
H 1 am to answer your question, sir"
said Tregarthen. " I think, then, sir, that
ao gntlmsn could hav told such a story,
and that no assemblage of gentleman could
hear it without marking their sens of it
cowardice, Its brutality, and its general of
tensivsnas." ' Th colonel bounced to his feet and sent
a dosen wine glasses flying. Major, adju
tant, captains, lieutenants, and cornets all
leaped p wildly. Tregarthen resumed hi
seat, aad was calm amidst this tempest of
his own raising.
" Retire te your quarter!, sir I" stormed
the colonel. " Consider yourself under ar
rest, sir I" He stood puffing and snorting
for a moment while th offender arose, sa
luted, and left the mess-room. " Resume
your seats, gentlemen," he said then, and
all sat down, tn awkward silence.
A general sense of relief was felt Ave
minutes later, when, after a muttered word
or two te his neighbors at right and left, th
colonel arose and withdrew, followed by
Major Kykia and Captain Barcourt. Clamor
en rued, and nothing was talked of but th
awful and unheard of incident of th vn
Tregarthen ia tb meantime walked to
hit quarters, and seturaed the salutes of
fered aim by berrack-loangers aad sentries
an th way. It waa turnmar-thae, and the
twilight lingered softly. An odor of mig
nonette stol pleasantly through th open
casement of hi chamber, and he seated
himself en a couch near ths window and
looked at tb darkaingaaiasataesmokd.
If be were not alWthar as placid' as ha
b outwardly tranquil vea ha his own sole
company he waa less disturbed thaa might
have been predicted ef a man so young after
his share ia such a scene
"The man's a blackguard," he said quiet
ly. " Perhaps I was aa a to tell him to
and yet I dont know. That tort of thing
ought not to he allowed to go on among gen
tlmn, and, if It does, it is clearly some
one's duty to put a foot upon it"
H thrw away th stump of hi cigar,
Ut a new one, and stretched himself along
th couch. Ia that position he smoked un
til he eoald see aathing ia th gathering
darkness but the little point ef light an ina
or two from his noes.
Then steps seended on th stairs, aad
there was a knock at th der. H called
Co th knooker to enter, and two men cam
ia and looked about them uncertainly in
the gloom. There wan a light upon the
stairs without, and ho recognised his visi
tors. "Mr. Tregarthen'" said one.
"At your service, sir," he answered,
gravely. " Be seated, gentlemen. Allow
ana to light th lamp."
He moved quietly about the room, found
his lamp, set it upon the table, and, having
Ughted It, returned hit place. But, seeing
that his visitors remained standing, be arose
again and faced them.
"Colonel Pollard," began Major Eykln,
with great solemnity, " having consulted
Captain Barcourt and myself, has decided
to meet the unusual occurrence of this
evening by a step which is at least at un
usual, but which seems to be called for by
the circumstances of the case."
" 'Ciaely. Quaite so," said Captain Ear
court "Th result of that decision is," pursued
the major, " that we are here to demand a
meeting. Colonel Pollard entirely waives
the question of rank, feeling as he does that
nothing short of th course he proposes can
vindicate his honor."
"And you concur I" inquired the cornet
"Zactly," said Captain Harcourt. "We
"I must ask you to allow me to differ
from you, gentlemen," (aid Tregarthen.
" I do not see how it is in any way possible
for Colonel Pollard to vindicate bis honor."
"We will not trouble you, Mr. Tre
garthen," said the major, "for any expres
sion of your opinion." He spoke with in
finite dryness. " We will merely ask you to
nominate an hour for th meeting and to
najns your friend."
' I cannot oblig you, gentlemen," re
turned Tregarthen. "Colonel Pollard has
wantonly aad publicly defamed the char
acter ef a lady, and I do not tee how even
a publio apology and withdrawal could help
The colonel's emissaries looked at each
other with uplifted eyebrows.
;' Are we to understand," asked the ma
jor, " that you decline to meet Colonel Pol
lard!" " I do not tee bow the breach of law
which Colonel Pollard proposes can consols
him for a former misdemeanor."
"Bay Jovsry' know," cried Harcourt,
"the felWt mad's a March hare."
" ' I am not mad, most noble Festus,'"
s&id Tregarthen, bowing.
The two m(litary gentlemen were strangers
to the volume from whiea be quoted, and
they looked each other again, witfe a glance
that said plainly that th mark bad been
"I will light in the Queen cause," said
the cornet, "but tn ne other." Hare was
another teach of the bombast natural te
ardent youth, but Tregarthen't aspect was
calm, and it was not difficult te see that
be meant what he said, and was likely to
abide by ft
" I do not think, sir," said Major Eykin,
" that you properly appreciate the situation,
or the aHernattve that lie before you."
" May I so far tresspass on your kind
ness," asked the imperturbable youag man,
" as to beg you to instruct me!"
"You have offered to the virtual head ef
your regiment a publio and most shameful
insult," returned the majors, in ootnasurable
heat , He waives all eonstderation of his
rank, and stoops to demand a personal en
counter in vindication of his outraged
honor. Stoops, sir understand me, sir I
say stoops to demand a personal encounter.
That encounter you refuse. Do you know
what construction gentlemen will put upon
"I await instruction, sir," answered Tre
garthen. " Very well," said the major, grown sar
donic on a sadden, " you shall have it It
is open for you to offer an abject apology,
and to exchange if you are still inclined to
ornament the service. "
"Is that the only alternative course you
seef" inquired the cornet "Pardon me,
gentlemen. We are all naturally a tittle
tieated by th events of the evening. May
I suggest that w attempt a milder humor' "
"The thing, sir," declared the major,

"Permit me," said this amazing sub
altern. " Is it not at least equally open to
Colonel Pollard with myself to offer an
apology and to exchange tf he is still in
clined to ornament the service?"
Major Eykin swung round upon hit heel
and marched to th door. There be turned
"On more chance, sir. So yoa apolo

" Neither, sir," returned Tregarthen. The
major tor th door open and disappeared.
Tregarthen ran forward aad held the door
while Hereon left the rocs. Tfaear step
died off int aiieace, and the prusumptaout
young man was left to hi own reflections,
which began to be disturbed aad bitter.
Be found little fault wvah hiraesif as yet,
but he had learned tn what light his con
duct was likely to be regarded by the mea
among whom h had desired te live. He
had acted deliberately, and was not in the
least disposed to be ashamed of himself.
Men of middl age can sometime school
themselves to hold a candle to the devil.
They learn th wisdom of th world,
and are not greatly inclined to ehampioa
their own notion. They feel a dishonor
tn toleration. But with two aad twenty
all this may be different, and, happfly, it
sometimes is. Quixete grows into Sancho
Panza, as often aa not, before h comet to
forty yean. , That may or may not be sor
rowful, but to be born Sancho would surely
teem something of a pity.
Contrary to Tregarthen't expectation, no
Immediate action followed anon his refusal
ef the major's ultimatum. A day or two
went by, and he wss simply disregarded.
No brother officer cam near him ; he beard
nothing about the oontLnuanoe of bis arrest
or its discontinuance, and, after waiting in
his own quarters until the sens f tedium
became too marked to be easily endured,
he wrote a careful Uttl missive to the col
onel, requesting to know what form the
charge against hint would taks, and when
it would be preferred. Ia response to these
inquiries came a letter from the adjutant,
informing him that th character of the
charge was under consideration, that he
would receive ampl warning af th date
on which it would be preferred, and that
be was in th meantime to regard himself
as being released from active participation
ia regimental duties. Following on this
same another letter (signed by every officer
of th regiment, with- tb axception of th
olouel, th aames following each other in

know whether he might regard himself aa
being provisionally at liberty; and, being
answered in the affirmative, he set oat for
London. He found his story there before
him, garbled, as such stories are. He had
drunkenly insulted his colonel, had thrown
a wine glass at him in milder versions,
had only thrown the contents of the glass
la versions even stronger, had used a de
canter as a missile.
He suffered much heart-burniag before
the court-martial surasxHtod to decide his
case was appointed ; and if he had expecta
tions of snpport from any court of honor,
they were dashed to pieces. Tfae assem
blage of officers and gentlemen who investi
gated the history of the quarrel were unan
imously against him. They were also
unanimous in their recommendation tbst
he should quit the service. This, with the
obstinacy natural to him, he utterly de
clined to do ; and the upshot of the whole
matter was, that when all due formalities
had been accomplished, the contumacious
youth was deprived of his commission, and
waa returned to the world with a character
more damaged thaa it deserved to be. Dis
cipline must be maintained, and there is no
doubt tkat if cornots were accustomed pub
licly to rebuke their colonels for breaches
of good breeding the British military ser
vice would enter on a phase of some nov
elty. Tregarthen went home disgusted and em
bittered. The only career he cared for was
closed to him for good and all; and even in
later years, when experience brought him
more wisdom than two and twenty can
commonly boast of, he bulieved himself to
have beea unjustly used.
It seemed necessary to relate this episode
of his career for two reasons it strikes a
key-note of character, nhi it furnishes an
explanation for his afU-r-muJe of life.

Prize fighting is dead, but that is no reason
why boxing should decline among amateurs.
There is no manlior exercise, none which is
better for the development of the muscles,
and noue which does more to teach a man to
keep bis temiier. Ilurd enough it U for play
ers to keep their temper always at chess, or
tennis, or golf, especially golf, but it is
harder and even more necessary in boxing.
A blow with the gloves on the nose can be
agreeable to no one, and the boxer learns to
bear this amount of pain with a constant
heart and without making wry faces. The
exercise is excellent for wind and limb, and
was much practiced by the Greeks, whose
gloves, however, increased and did not deaden
the force of a blow.
In this pastime we believe that the Engl
lish-speaking races alone live up to what Mr
Hannibal Cuollop might have called the an
cient Spartan ticket, aud probably our young
Hellenic champion, even "the artist athlete
Milo," discovered of lute by an American
novelist. To be able to box, too, may be of
great service to u man in one of those diffi
culties into which circumstances may force
the most powerful. If a brute is maltreating
bis wife, or two or three roughs are kicking a
man, he who enn box and knows it, will not
pass by on the other side of the way like the
Levite. But we can have boxing without
prize tighting.just as we have fencing without
the duel and this is a blessing, for the prize
ring is as extinct as the tiodo, and deserves Its
death much more than did that unassuming
Not for the Kituals of Civilization.
The religion of the anciout Egyptians had
some features not be found in several of the
religions of these times. Here, for example,
is a parage from a pruyer to be found in the
ritual for tlie tlt'atl:
"I know you, Lord of truth anl justice; I
have brought you truth, I have committed
no fraud against men, I have not tormented
the widow, I luive not lied in the tribunal, I
have not done any prohibited thing, I have
not commanded my workman to do more
than be could do, I have not made fraudu
lent gains, I have not altered the grain meas

ance, I hav not made others weep, I am
Another man thus cries:
"I have given bread to him who was hun
gry, water to the thirsty, garments to the
naked, and a home to the forsaken one."
Still another cries:
"I have protected the poor against the pow
erful, I have given hospitality to every one,
I have been benevolent and devout, I have
cherished my frieuds, and my hand has been
open to him who had nothing. ' I have loved
truth aud hated a lie."
