And. again, there is the-mysterious
ease of Colonel Stewart. This officer
was a colonel in the coast artillery
service. For some reason not explain
ed he was suddenly transferred to a
deserted army post in the center of
Arizona, a long way from any coast
or any artillery. There is no garrison
there, and he was allowed but one en
listed man to look ou for his comfort.
The post is 20 miles across the desert
to the nearest village. He was told
that if he would allow himself to be
retired his application would be ac
cepted, but as he had four years more
of active service he refused to retire
unless made a brigadier general, r.s he
will be if he sticks. On a protest from
his friends he was transferred to St.
Augustine, Fla. He had not unpacked
his goods there before he was curtly
ordered back to the Arizona desert.
Now the point of this Incident isjthat
no" public charge has been made
ngainst Colonel Stewart. Any officer
can be retired for cause and it has
been shown that three companies of
piivates can be dismissed upon mere
suspicion of cause. If the commander-in-chief
of the army and navy in the
White house has reason to believe that
something Colonel Stewart has done
lays him open to punishment, he can
demand a court martial or court of
inquiry. Neither has been ordered,
though Senator Rayner of Maryland,
in a resolution recently, demanded
that the latter course be adopted.
What Stewart's sins are no one knows.
But the president insists that as commander-in-chief
he has the right to in
flict discipline arbitrarily, without in
vestigation and without publicity, upon
any one wearing the United States
Both the Brownsville case and the
Stewart case suggest that the mutual
admiration of the-emperor of Ger
many and Theodore Roosevelt for
each other is based upon a similar be
lief in their own infallibility and their
superiority to law made by the plain,
ordinary, common people. .

Elsie Reynolds had just finished her
first year of teaching. She had not en
joyed the experience particularly, aud
now that the train was carrying her
back to the east, which she loved, she
wondered how she could have even
half pledged herself to return in the
fall. But she had, and at length she
admitted to herself the reason for it.
It was not the work. Work she must
have somewhere, to be sure, but it was
not necessary to seek it at so great a
distance from home. No, it was not
the work, but the friends she had
made, or, rather, to be strictly truthful
and spare herself no blushes, it was
one friend. Gilbert Chandler..
The admission came as a revelation.
For six months she and Gilbert had
been good comrades, and they had part
ed as comrades, exchanging promises
to write to each other during the long
summer vacation if it were not too hot
and if they were not too busy, etc.
But Elsie had made the identical prom
ise to half a dozen other men, more or
less, who had come to the train to see
her off, for Elsie was pretty and pop
uiar ana uuuort unandier had by no
means a clear field.
Had the truth been told him (by any
one save Elsie) he would have dismiss
ed it with a smile of Incredulity
But Elsie had no intention of telling
him indeed, having discovered -the
state of her feelings, she had no inten
tion of favoring him with iuformation
of any kind. Gilbert must write first.
On that point she wa'j inllexible. even
after a month of anxious waiting. .
Other men wrote, but the seals of
their letters she broke listlessly and
answered them only In the hope that
through them she miht hear some
thing of Gilbert At length they serv
ed her purpose.
Over and over again Elsie read the
unbelievable words. "You've doubtless
heard about Chandler's Illness," the
letter ran. ."Pneumonia has now set

Her alleged reason that she was
tired of civilization and hungered for
primitive experience was termed sheer
madness. Yet there was no one to hoid
her back. She was fatherless and
motherless and perforce self support-
For the next two years there were
two very small institutions In the Lone
Star State that prospered amazingly.
One was a forlorn one room school-
house, the other a pocket handkerchief
ranch which surrounded a brave but
unpretentious little bungalow. In both
dally miracles were happening. The
schoolhouse knew all about the bunga
low, but the latter had never guessed
the existence tor its wide awake neigh
bor to the west. :
And when a letter arrived there oue
summer morning announcing that El
sie Reynolds was passing through Tex
as on her vay east and if convenient
would like to stop off for a few days to
visit old friends the' bungalow opened
wide its doors aud windows with as
tonishment and let the sun in like some
unexpected guest come to warm and
cheer its lonely heart.
During the days that must pass be
fore she should come all was one busy
whirl, of anticipation. To Gilbert
Chandler and his sister the actual pres
ence of a friend from their old aban
doned world would seem nothing short
of a glimpse of heaven.
Arrayed In its sudden acquisition of
muslin ruffles and chintz flowers and
quite consciously proud of its honey
suckle perfume, the little house flut
tered and beamed with expectation.
At la."t the great day arrived. Gil
bert rose early, his browned face ra
diant with happiness, saddled the two
horses and went to meet her.
The ride back over the rolling prairie,
which for each of them held Use special
meaning, was tremulous with things
unspoken. From full hearts Uttle save
commonplaces reached the lips.
"Yoir'havc been traveling. Elsie?"
"I traveling?"' She laughed back at
him merrily. "No; same old story, Gil
bertteaching." "But you're brown as a Mexican, and
you dou't look the least bit fagged,
though that's damning you with faint
praise," he added, looking at her with
very frank admiration. "Where have
you been teaching?" '
"Ob, let's skip sordid details." Elsie
answered evasively. "Don't you love
thfs country?" ,
Gilbert followed her gaze out over
the luxuriant wealth of grassy mead
ows and beyond to the high, grim
"xes." he. answered loyally; ."I Oc
love It It has given me back my life."
To Elsie it seemed us If her heart
must cry out and demand the whole
truth. ' . "
"Do you mean that you are really
well and strong again or merely, that
you are grateful just to be alive?" wae
the question that begged to be asked,
but she forced It. back relentlessly. . .;
Gilbert himself broke the tense si
lence between them. .'
"See, there's the shack," he said Joy
ously, indicating the little gray bunga
low sot cozily In its frame of orchard
green. ' ' ' ;
Elsie gave a cry of delight' put her
horse to the gallop and rode straight
and fast Toward the open door.

porch. arCl 'his "heart "bounded toward
her in a mighty yearning.
"It is time now to tell me where you
have been these two long years, Elsie.

endless stretch of prairie lawn before

she said. "You have succeeded here
wonderfully, haven't you, Gilbert?" j
As lie looked down at her his smile
had so much pride and pathos in It
that Elsie longod to throw her arms
about him and to tell him that she
knew she understood.
"Pretty well," he admitted, "for a
perverted young lawyer." : "
"Dou't," begged Elsie. "I can't bear
to hear you speak like that" .
"Why, bless your sympathetic little
heart!" exclaimed Gilbert' noticing the
tears in her eyes. "I've no kick com

"But if you are really well again
you'll go back to law. won't you?"
"Perhaps, somo time." answered Gil
bert thoughtfully. He was pacing up
and down the porch now. "You see,
I've been ont of it uow for over two
years, aud it would take some time to
get Iuto the running agaiu. Down
here I'm making my way far better
than I hoped. I think there's a big

speaking a moment, then added, look
ing wistfully Into the little home and
lowering bus voice: 'The hardest thing
is having my sister go back. She's to
be married this fall, you know. " She's
been a brick." '. .
Emotion checked his further speech..
The next moment with a little bro

ecstasy of their emotions. - ,
