T WAS nearly midnight, and
ktiii the gay party lingered on
tlie veranla. There had bwn
afortnlKht of "getting ottlpd" at the
new poet, pm-eded by a month of march
ing that had brought the battalion from
din tout aorvire to this arrange Texan sta
tion. Tho new comer had been hospita
bly wtcouuxl I'V the nftiooni of the little
garrison of Infantry, and now, in recog
nition of their many rotn-teaies, the field
officer commanding the arriving troops
had been entertaining the resident offi
cer and lalies at dinner. The colonel
wan a host in himself, but preferred not
to draw too heavily on his reserves of
anecdote and smull talk, so he had called
in two of his subalterns to aattixt in the
pleannnt duty of being attentive to the
infantry ladies, and jimt now, at 11:45 p.
in., he waa wondering tf Lieut. Perry
had not too literally construed his in
structions, for that young gentleman
was devoting hinmlf to Mrs. Helknap in
a manner so mnrked as to make the cap
tain, her lawful lrI and master, mani
Mr, ftelknnp, however, seemed to en
Joy the situation immensely. She waa
a pretty woman at most times, at even
her rivals admitted. She was a beauti
ful woman at all trtnes, was the verdict
of the officers of the regiment when they
happened to speak of the matter among
themselves. She was dark, with lus
trous eyes and sweeping I ax ties, with
coral lips and much luxuriance of tress,
. and a way of glancing sideways from
TufleVhjr heavily fringed eyelids that
the youngf) ,mnre Impressionable
men found quite irresistible when ac
corded th rare luxury of a tete-a-tete.
I " JlWkimp was a big and boisterous man;
. Mrs. Belknap was sum 1 1 in stature, and
soft very soft of voice. Helknap waa
either brusquely repellent or oppressively
r cordial in manner; Airs. Ht-lknap waa
either gently and exasperatingly indif
ferent to those whom she did not care to
attract, or caressingly sweet to those
whose attentions she desired.
In their own regiment the young offi
cers sooti found that unless they winhed
to bo involved in an unpleasantness with
Iielknap it waa best to lie only very mod
t erately devoted to his pretty wife, and
- those to whom an unpleasantness with
j the big captain might have had no ter
j . rr of consequence were deterred by
I the fact that Mrs. Rolknap devotee
, atuonir the "youngsters" had invariably
t?iiKrTtn"!iTjPt,t of coMnese and aver-
' - aion to the other dame and damsels of
the garrison. Very short lived, there
t . fore, had been the little llirtations that
I sprang up from time to time in those
frontier posts whereto Capt. and Mrs.
, Helknap were among the chief orna
ments of society; but now matter
' seemed to he taking other shape. From
the very day that handsome Ned Perry
dismounted lu front of lu lknap's quar
ters and with bis soldiery salute reported
to the then commanding olHcer that CoL
Hrainard and his liutlulion of cavalry
would arrive in the course of two or
three hours Mrs. Ilelknap had evinced a
contentment in his society and aienimed
an air of quasi-proprivtonhip that served
J to annoy her garrison sister more than
a llttk. For the time being all the cav
I alryrnen were bachelor, either bv ac-

C( It was the doctor himvlf who, seated

to Perry' devotionul attitude at Mrs.

Graham broke forth in a peal of merry
laughter, but gave no further reply, for
just then the colonel and the doctor left
their chnir. and, sauntering over to the
hammock, brought mighty relief to Bel
knap at the whist table and vexation of
spirit to his pretty wife. The flirtation
waa broken at a roost interesting point,
and Perry, rising 'suddenly, came over
and Joined Mr. Lawrence.
If she expected to see him piqued or
annoyed at the interruption and some
what perturbed in manner, she was
greatly mistaken. Nothing could have
been more sunshiny and jovial than the
greeting he gave her. A laughing apol
ogy to Uraham for spoiling his tete-a-tete
waa accomplished in a moment, and
then down by her side he sat and plunged
Into a merry description of his experi
ences at dinner, where he had been
placed next to th chaplain's wife on the
one hand, and she hail been properly ag
grieved at his attentions to Mrs. Belknap
on the other.
"You must remember that Mrs. Wells
Is a very strict Presbyterian, Mr. Perry;
and, for that matter, none of us have
seen a dinner such as the colonel gave us
this evening for ever and ever so long.
We are quite unused to the ways of
civilization; whereas you have just come
from the east and long leave. Perhaps
it is the fashion to l-e all devotion to
one's next door neighbor at dinner."
"Not if she be as repellent and vener
able as Mrs. Wells, I assure you. Why,
I thought she would have been glad to
leave the table when, after having re
fused sherry and Ponret-Canet for up
wards of an hour, her glass was filled
with champagne when she happened to
be looking the other way."
"It is the first dinner of the kind she
haa ever seen here, Mr. Perry, and 1
don't suppooo either Mr. or Mrs. Wells
has been up so lute before in years. He
would have enjoyed staying and watch
ing whist, but she carried him off almost
as soon as we left the table. Our society
has been very dull, you know only our
selves at the pont all this last year, and
nobody outside of it."
"One mould suppose that with all this
magnificent cattle range there would be
some congenial people ranching near
you. Are there none at alii''
"Absolutely nonel There are some
ranches down in the Washita country,
but only one fine one near us; and that
might as well be on the other side of the
Atlantic. No one from there ever
comes here; and Dr. Quin is the only
living soul in the garrioon who ever got
within the walls of that ranch. What
he saw there he positively refuses to tell,
despite all our entreaty."
"You don't tell roe there's a ranch
with a mystery here near Rossiter!" ex
claimed Mr. Perry, with sudden interest.
"Why, I do, indeed! la it possible
you have been here two whole weeks
and haven't heard of Dunraven Ranch?"
"I've heard there '.'as sach a thing; I
saw it from a distance when out hunting
the other day. But what' the mystery?
what's the matter with it?"
"That's what we all want to know
and cannot find out. Now, there It an
exploit worthy your energy and best
efforts, Mr. Perry. There is a big,
wealthy, well stocked ranch, the finest
homestead buildings, we are told, in all
thi ; part of Texas. They say it is beau
tifully furnished that it has a fine
library, a grand piano, all manner of
things indicative of culture and refine
ment among its occupants but the own
er only come around once or twice a
year, and is an iceberg of an English
man. All the people about the ranch
are Knglish, too, ami the most repelleut,
boorwh, discourteous lot of men you ever
saw. When the Kleventh were here
they did everything they could to he
civil to them, but not an invitation
would they accet, not one would they
extend; and so from that day to this
none of the officers have had any inter
course with the people at the ranch, and
the soldiers know very little more. Once
or twice a year some very ordinary look
ing men arrive who are said to be very
distinguished people in England; but
they remain only a little while, and go
away as suddenly as they came."
"Anil you have never seen any f
"Nerer, except at a distance. Nor
has aay one if the officers, except Dr.
"And you I ave never heard anything
about the inn ates ani why they keep
up this Klicy f excluivenes?"
"We have h ard all manner of thing
some of tht a wildly romantic, some
mygtetioiiiy :rugic, and all of them,
probably, absurd. At ad events, Capt.
AiLa.wrence has told me he did not wish

terious little silken braid and

there waa some romance attached to it,
and now it is gone."
Perry laughed, bis blue eyes twinkling
with fun: "If I will tell you how and
where 1 got that tassel, will you tell me
what you have heard about Dunraven
"1 cannot, unless Capt. I-awrence
withdraws his prohibition. Perhaps he
will, though, for 1 think it was only be
cause he was tired of hearing all our
conjectures and theories."
"Well, will you tell me if 1 can induce
the captain to say he has no objection?"
"I will to-morrow if you will tell me
about the tassel to-night."
"Is it a iositive promise? You will tell
me to-morrow all you have heard about
Dunraven Ranch if I will tell you to
night all I know about the tassel?"
"Yes a promise."
"Very well, then. You are a witness
to the compact, Graham. Now for my
confession. I have worn that tassel ever
since our parting ball at Fort Riley.
That is to say, it has been fastened to
that button ever since the hall until to
night; but I've lieen mighty careful not
to wear that cap on any kind of duty."
"And yet you let Mrs. Belknap take it
"Why shouldn't I? There was no
sentiment whatever attached to it. I
haven't the faintest idea whose it was,
and only tied it there for the fun of the
tiling and to make Graham, here, ask
"Mr. PerryP gasped Mrs. Lawrence.
"And do you mean that Mrs. Belknap
knows that you told her what you have
just told Dior'
"Well, no," laughed Perry. "I fancy
Mrs. Belknap think as you thought
that it was a gaged'amour. Hallo! look
at that light away out there across the
prairie. Wliat cun that be?"
Mrs. Lawrence rose suddenly to her
feet and gazed southeastward in the di
rection In which the young officer point
ad. It was a lovely, starlit night. A
oft wind wits blowing gently from th
south and liearing with it the fragrance
of spring blossoms and far away flower
eta. Others, ton, had arisen, attracted
by Perry's sudden exclamation. Mrs.
Belknap turned languidly in her ham
mock and glanced over her pretty white
shoulder. The colonel followed her eyes
with his and gave a start of surprise.
Tho doctor turned slowly and composed
ly and hioked silently towards the glis
tening object,' and then upon the officers
of the cavalry there fell sudden astonish
ment. "What on earth could that have been?"
asked the colonel. "It gleamed like the
head light of a locomotive, away down
there in the valley of the Monee, then
suddenly went out."
"Be silent a moment and watch,"
whispered Mrs. Lawreno to Perry.
"You will see It again; and watch the
Surely enough, even as they wers all
looking about and commenting on the
strange apparition, it suddenly glared
forth a second time, shining full and lus
trous as an unclouded planet, yet miles
away beyond and above the fringe of
oottonwoods that wound southeastward
with the little stream. Full half a min
ute it shone, and then, abruptly as be
fore, was hidden from sight.
Perry was about starling forward to
join the colonel when a little hand was
laid upon his arm.
Wait; once more you'll see it," she
whispered. "Then take me in to Capt.
Lawrence. Do you see that the" doctor
Without saying a word to any ono, the
post surgeon had very quietly withdrawn
from the group on the veranda. He
could not well leave by the front gate
without attracting attention; but be
strolled leisurely into the hull, took up
a book that lay on the table, and passed
through the group of oHioera seated
siuoking and chatting there, entered the
sitting room on the south side of the
hall the side opposite the parlor where
the whist game was in progress and
there he was lut to sight.
A third time the bright light burst
upon the view of the gazers. A third
time, sharply and suddenly, it disap
peared. Then for a moment all was
silence and watchfulness; but it came no
Perry looked questioningly in his com
panion's face. She bad turned a little
white, and he felt sure that she wai
"Are you cold?" he asked her, gently.
"No not that; but I hate mysteries,
after what I've heard, and we haven't
seen that light in erer so long. Come
here to the corner one moment." And
she led him around to the other flank ol
the big wooden, barrack like residence ol
the commanding officer.
"Look up there," she said, pointing tf
a dark window under the peaked dormei
roof of the large cottage to the south.
"That is the doctor's house."
In a few seconds a faint gleam seemed
to creep through the slats. Then the
slats themselves were thrown wide open,
a white shade was lowered, and, with
the rays behind it growing brighter ev
ery instant, a broad white li;ht hhont
forth over the roof of the veranda. An
other moment and footstep were beard
along tho doctor's porch, footsteps that
presently approached them along thf
"Come," she said, plucking at hi
sleeve, "come away; it is the doctor."
"For what reason?" he answered.
"That would seem like hiding. No, Mrs.
Lawrence, let us stay until he comes."
But the doctor passed them with brief
and courteous salutation; efioke of the
beauty of the night and the balm of the
summery air, and went in again by the
main door to the colonel's quarters.
Then Perry turned to bis partner:
"Well. Mrs. Lawieiico, w hat d.esitall
mean? Is this part of what you nad to
"Don't ask me now I I did not want
to see what we have seen, but I had
beard queer stories and could not believe
them. Take me in to Capt. Lawrence,
please. And, Mr. Perry, you won't speak
of this to any one, will you? Indeed, if 1
had known. I would not have come out
here for the world; but I didii't believe
it, even when she went away and took
"Who went away?"
"Mrs. Quia the doctor's wife. And
site was such a sweet woman, and so de
voted to him."
"Well, pardon me, Mrs. Itwrence, 1
don't see through this thing at all. Do
you mean that the doctor haa anything
to do with tlie mystery?"
She bowed her head as they turned
back to the bouse: "1 must not tell you
any more to-night. You will he sure to
hear something of it all. here. Every
body on the piazza saw the lights, and
all who were here U-fore you came knew
what they meant."
"What were they?"

I know of soaps quite fair to see.
Take care !
They can both white and spurious be,
Trust them not.
They are fooling thee!
They claim to be the purest made.
Take care !
They are of an inferior grade.
Trust them not.
Buy the Ivokv!
Hold on to that and shun tin; rct.
It is the cheapest and the bcJ ;
Of frauds beware!
Trust them not.
Trust pure Ivoky.
A WORD OF WARNING.
fhere are many white soaps, each represented to be " just as good as the ' Ivory ' ; "
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of
the genuine. Ask for " Ivory " Soap and insist upon getting it.
