That afternoon as the Union Pacific
express stood ready at the Union sta
tion for the start there boarded one of
the sleepers a' burly, thickset. bluO
mannered man in a huge fur overcoat,
closely followed by nvo younger com
panions. One of these latter, erect
and graceful in bearing, alert and
quick In every movement, with clear
cut and handsome features, was dress
ed with care and taste, evidently a
man accustomed to metropolitan
scenes and society. The other, a youth
of probably his own age, though look
ing older, was sallow, shabby, with a
dejected, down at the heel expression
to his entire personality that told in
fallibly of failure and humiliation. -
"Better pull off that overcoat and
make yourself comfortable. Lowndes,"

"Mortimer Watson Lowndes!" cried
she. "Where on earth have you been?"
Mortimer Watson wept dismally.
Two days later the colonel's office at

Colonel Button was of course at his
fcsual desk. Colonel Biggs, his jeal
ously regarded rival, was seated at a
little table. Lieutenant Lanier, some
what pale, but entirely placid, occupied
a chair to the left of that table, with
Captain Sumter, as his troop command
er and counsel, by his side. Captain
Snaffle was in support of the post
commander to cross question if he saw
fit. Barker, the adjutant, was present,
as a laatter of course. Sergeant Fitz
roy, -with trouble in his eyes and wrath
in h(s heart, was flitting nneasily

began Biggs with elaborate courtesy,

door opened and there entered a very
self possessed young man.
"What's he mean by coming here in
'cita?'" said Snaffle.
"yes. Colonel Riggs; if this man'3 a
soldier why isn't he in uniform?'
With perfect respect, at a nod from
Riggs, the newcomer replied, "My
uniforms and other belongings of mine
were taken from my trunk in town
during my absence."
"You could have borrowed one." said
"I told him he need not," retorted
Riggs. "Mr. Rawdon. you were a

"Do you still hold that job?"
"No. sir." And there was a twitch of
the muscles about the corners of the
mouth suggestive of amusement
"I failed to give satisfaction. Only
scraps of my letters were published."
"What did they want?"
"Criticism principally and confirma

"You had trouble with Sergeant

Rawdon's eyes never flinched.
"It was partly on account of the
lady who is now my wife and partly
on account of money. Fitzroy is an
out and out usurer and has a dozen
sergeants in the regiment in his debt
and under his thumb. Captain Snaffle's
first sergeant among them."

Lowndes and Cary had run away with
some of his clothes. There'd been a
shindy up the row, and just then a
soldier friend came running. 'Skip for
your life, Rawdon,' said he. 'There'?
been robbery at Captain Sumter's,
and Sergeant Fitzroy swears it was
rou and .that you've struck him and
assaulted him. The colonel orders
you arrested wherever found. The
patrols are out now!' There was no
time to explain. I lashed my team to
town, caught Lowndes in cavalry over
coat and cap. the fool, and with not a
cent to his name. I gave Cary a note
to Miss Mayhew, which he never de
livered, and took Lowndes with me on
No. 6 at 11:40."

"Nowhere near it, sir."

Riggs "that night at Laramie of

"There was nothing remarkable in
that I had heard of the same thing be

Lowndes and why. So. with my apol

round to his tent and into his blan

the reason ?"
"Never, so far as I know. I doubt
if he knows it now. Lowndes told me
the lieutenant before he entered West
Point was a member of our fraternity.
That was enough."
"And so far as I am .concerned," said
Riggs. "that is enough. Have you
gentlemen any questions to ask?"
"Not now," answered Button slow

the witness later."

LIQUID CURES ECZEMA
WHEEE SALVES FAIL
In regard to skin diseases, medical
authorities are now agreed on this:
Don't imprison the disease germs In
your skin by the use of greasy salves,
and thus encourage them to multiply.
A true cure of all eczematous diseases
can be brought about only by using the
healing agents In the form of a liquid.
WASH THE GERMS OUT.
A simple wash: A compound of Oil
of WIntergreen, Thymol and other in
gredients as combined in the D. D. Z.
Prescription. This penetrates to the
disease germs and destroys them, then
seothes and Sneals the skin as nothing
else has ever done.
A 25 cent trial bottle will start the
cure, and give you instant relief.
