Jfl jj vfine ami morning
-er-j ? X iv atalila about as ve-
leniently an was pos
aiMe to a young fol
low who was in other
reapwcta thoroughly in love with his pro
fession. A fairer type of the American
cavalry officer, when once he pot in sad
dle and aettled down to business, one
would hardly ask u lind. Tall, athletic,
lender of build, with frank, laughing
blue eyes, curly, close cropped, light
brown hair, and a twirling mustache
that was a source of inexpressible delight
to Its owner and of soma envy to his
brother subalterns, Mr. Terry was prob
ably the best looking of the young offi
cers who inarched with the battalion to
this far away station on the borders of
the Llano Entacado. He had lieen ten
years in aorrii, counting the four he
pent as a cadet, had just won his silver
bar as the junior first lieutenant of the
regiment, was full to the brim of health,
energy, animal spirits and fun. and, bar
ring a few duns and debts in his earlier
experiences, had never known a heavier
care in the world Mian the transient
and ephemeral anxiety as to whether he
would he railed up for recitation on a
subject he had not so much as lookod at,
or hived" alwent from a roll call he had
lazily slept through.
Any other man. his comrades said,
would have len spoiled a dozen times
over by the petting he had received from
both men and women; but there was
something essentially sweet and genial
about his nature something "lacking in
guile about his perceptions," said a cyni
cal old captain of the regimeut and a
jovial, sunshiny way of looking upon the
world as an Eden, all men and all women
as friends, and the army as the profes
sion above all others, and these various
attributes combined to make him popular
with his kind and unusually attractive
to the opposite sex. As a cadet he had
been perpetually on the verge of dismis
sal because of the apjalling array of de
merits he could roll upagainst Lis name,
and yet the very officers who jotted down
the memoranda of his sins omission
and commimion against the regulations
were men who openly said he "had the
making of oue of the tinest soldiers in
the class.' As junior second lieutenant
"pie be" of the regiment, he lutd been
welcomed by every man from thecoloue.1
down, and it was considered particularlv
rough that he should have to go to such
a company as Capt. Canker's, because
Canker was a man who never got along
with any of his juniors: but there was
something so irrepressibly frank and
contrite in Perry's liovish face when he
would appear at his captain's door
in the early morning and burst out
with: "By Jove, captain! I slept
through reveille again this morning,
and never got down till stables
were nearly over," that even that cross
grained but honest troop commander
was disarmed, and, though he threat
ened and reprimanded, he would never
punish would never deny his subaltern
the faintest privilege; and when promo
tion took the captain to another regi
ment he bade good-by to Perry with eyes
that were suspiciously wet. "Why,
blow it all, what do you fellows hate
Canker so for?" the youngster often
aid. "He ought to put me in arrest
time and again, but he won't UlanieJ
if I don't put myself in arrest, or confine
myself to the limits of the port, and do
something, to cut all this going to town
and hop and such things. Then I can
tick to the troop like wax and gnt up at
reveille; but if I'm out dancing till 2 or
8 in the morning it's no use, I tell you: I
ust can't wake up."
It was always predicted of Ned' Perry
Ua ha would t "lurrMa tl (km
within a year of his graduation.
Every new face in the five years that
followed revived the garrison proph
ecy, "Now he's gone, surer but, how
ever devoted he might seem to the damsel
in question, however restless and impa
tient be might be when compelled by his
duties to absent himself from her aid
however promising to casual observers
perchance to the damsel herself might
be all the surface indications, the aho
lute frankness with which he proclaimed
his admiration to every listener, and the
fact that he "had been just so with half
a dozen other girls," enabled the cooler
beads of the regiment to decide that the
time had not yet come or at least the
"I do wish," said Mrs. Turner, "that
all. Perry would settle on soinoliody, be
Jawse. just so long as he doesn't, it is
rather hard to tell who he belong to."
And, m Mrs. Turner had long been a
reigning belle among the married women
of the tb, and one to whom the young
officers were always expected to show
much attention, her whimsical way of
describing the situation was readily un
derstood. But hers at Uhe new station at far
away Roaeiter matters were taking on
a new look. To begin with, the wives
of the officer of the cavalry battalion
had not joined, none of the ladies of the
th were here, and none would be
apt to corns until the summer's scout
ing work was over and done with. The
ladies of the little battalion of infantry
were here, and, though there were no
maiden sisters or cousins yet at the post
(rest assured that more than one was al
ready summoned), they were sufficient
in number to enliven the mouotony of
garrison life and sufficiently attractive
to warrant all the attention they cared
to receive. It was beginning to be gar
rison chat that if Ned Perry had not
"settled on somebody" as the ultimate
object of his entire devotion, somebody
had settled on him, and that was pretty
And though Ned Perry hated reveille
and morning stables, as has been said,
and could rarely "take his week" with
out making one or more lapses, here be
was this beautiful May morning out at
daybreak when it was his junior's tour
of duty, and wending his way with that
youngster out to the line of cavalry sta
bles, booted and spurred and equipped
for a ride.
The colonel had listened with some
surprise to his request, proffered just as
the party was brsaking up the night be-
xors, to be absent from garrison a few
hours the fallowing morning.
"But we have battalion drill at
o'clock, Mr. Perry, and I need you there,"
"Oh, HI be back la time for that, sir.
I wanted to be off three hours or so be
The colonel could not help laughing.
"Of coarse you can go go wherever you
like at those hours, when you ars not on
guard; but I never imagined you would
want to get up so early."
"Neither I would, colonel, but Tve
been interested in something 1 heard
about tl lis ranch down the Monee, and
thought I'd like to ride down and look
"Go ahead, by all means, and see
whethe - those lights came from there.
It madt me think of a play I once saw
the Ctlleen Bawn' where a fellow's
sweettu art signaled across the lake by
showing a light in her cottage window
just th it way three times, and he an
swered by turning out the lights in his
room. Of course the distance wasn't
anythh g like this; and there was no one
here to turn down any light Eh! what
did you say?"
"I bej pardon, colonel. I didn't mean
to interrupt," put in a gentle voice at his
elbow, while a little hand on Perry's arm
gave it a sudden and vigorous squeeze,
"but dpt. Ijiwrence has called me twice
he w 11 not re-enter after lighting his
cigar ind I must say good night."
"Oh, good night, Mrs. Lawrence. I'm
sorry y u go so early. We are going to
reform you all in that respect as soon as
we get farly settled. Here's Perry, now,
would it up and play whist with me an
"Not this night, colonel. He has prom
ised to walk home with us" (another
squeez ), "and go he must, or be a faith
less escort. Good night. We've had
such a lovely, lovely time."
And Sed Perry, dazed, went with her
to the .ate, where Capt. Lawrence was
awaitii g them. She had barely time to
"You were just on the point of telling
him abnit the doctor's lights. I cannot
forgive myself for being the means of
seeing it; but keep my confidence, and
keep this until everybody is talking
about i :; it will come soon enough."
Naturally, Mr. Perry went home some
what erturbed in spirit and all alive
with njecture as to what these things
could r lean. The first notes of "assem
bly of t le trumpeters" generally known
as "first call" roused him from his sleep,
and by the time the men marched out to
the staMes he had had his plunge bath, a
vigorot rub and a chance to think over
his plans before following in their tracks,
dressed for his ride. The astonishment
of Lieut. Parke, the junior of the troop,
was something almost too deep for words
when Perry came bounding to his side.
"What on earth brings you out, Ned?"
was his only effort.
"Going for a gallop down the Monee;
that's II. 1 haven't had a freshener for
"Gatd we get exercise enough at
mornir g drill, one would think, and our
horses too. Oh!" And Mr. Parke
stopped suddenly. It flashed across him
that prhaps Perry was going riding
with a lady friend and the hour was her
eelectii-n. If so, 'twas no business of
his, an 1 remarks were uncalled for.
When he mounted and rode away from
the stajle Mr. Parke was outside at the
picket rope, and busily occupied in his
duties, supervising the fastening of the
fresh, xpirited horses at the line, for the
troop commander was a man intolerant
of disorder of any kind, and nothing
more ci (Tended his eye than the sight of
two or three of his charges loose and
plungi.ig and kicking up and down the
stable yard. On the other hand, there
was n one exploit that seemed to give
the yc linger animals keener delight
nothing that made the perpetrator a big
ger heio in his own eyes or the object of
greater envy among his fellows and as
a consequence every device of which
equine ingenuity was master was called
into pLiy, regularly as the morning came
around, to break loose either from the
control ling hand of the trooper or from
the taut and straining picket rope. The
first cure of the officer in charge of the
troop .sergeants was, therefore, to see
that ti l the horses were securely lashed
and kn rtted. ' Not until he had examined
every "halter shank" was Mr. Parke at
leisure to look around, but when he did
his comrade had disappeared from view.
And over this broad lovel, horizon
boundt d, not a moving object could be
een. Far away, in littlegroups of three
or four, black dots of grazing cattle
markei the plain, and over in the
"breaks" of the Monee, just beyond the
fringii g cotton woods, two or three
herds of Indian ponies were sleepily
cropping their morning meal, watched
by the little black imp of a boy whose
dirty red blanket made the only patch of
color igainst the southern landscape.
Later in the day, when the sua mounted
high in the heavens and the brisk west
erly woids sent the clouds sailing swift
across the skies, all the broad prairie
seemed in motion, for then huge shad
ows swept its face with measured speed,
and di itant cattle and neighboring pony
herd t ppeared as though calmly and
contentedly riding on a broad platform.
Nature's own "observation car." taking
a leisurely journey towards the faraway
But ihe sun was only just up as Mr.
Parke came back from his inspection of
the halter fastenings and paused to look
across the low valley. Far down to the
south ast the rays seemed glinting on
some bright objects cluEtered together
withir. short range of the shadowy
fringe, and the lieutenant shaded his
eyes with his gauntlet and looked fixed
ly thitherward as he stood at the stable
"So ne new tinning down at that Eng
lish ranch they talk of, I suppose," was
his ex ilanation of the phenomenon, and
then wonder why Perry hasn't ridden
to cultivate the acquaintance of those
peopk before this. He was always the
first n an in the th to find out who our
neighl rors were."
I'onJering over this question. It oc
curred to Mr. Parks that Perry had said
he wat going down the Monee that morn
ing; I ut nowhere was there a speck in
sight i hat looked like loping horseman.
To lie sure, the trail bore close to the low
bluffs that bounded the valley on the
north by the time one had ridden a mile
or so out from the poet. He was prob
ably I idden by this shoulder of the prai
rie, ai d would continue to be until he
reach. -d the bend, five miles below. No
use w itching for him then. Besides, he
might not yet have started. Mr. Parke
recall. -d the fact that be half suspected
a whi e ago that .NeJ was going to ride
an etrly ante-breakfast ride with a
lady friend. Mrs. Belknap had her own
horse, and was an accomplished eques
trienne; Mrs. Lawrence rode fairly well,
and was always glad to go, when some
body could give her a saddle and a reli
able mount. There were others, too,
amoni; the ladies of the infantry garrison
who were no novices a chevaL Mr.
Parke had no intention whatever of pry
ing Into the matter. It was simply as
something the officer in charge of stable
duty 'vas entitled to know that he turned
suddenly and called:
He heard the name passed down the
dark Interior of the stable by the men
sweet ing out the stalls, and the prompt
and cheery reply. The next instant a
tall young trooper stepped forth into the
blaze 3t early sunlight, his right hand
raised in salute, and stood erect and mo
tionle by the lieutenant's side,
"DiJ Mr. Perry take an extra horse,
"I thought possibly he meant to take
Rolan i. He's the best lady's horse in the
troop, is he not?"
"Y, sir; but Roland is at the line
"V.ry well, then. That's all. I pre
sume he has just ridden down to Don
raven." And Mr. Parke turned to look
once more at the glinting objects down
the di itant valley. It was a moment or
two b if ore he was aware of the fact that
the se-geant still stood there, instead of
returi ing to his duties.
"1 1 aid that was all, sargeantj joucau
go back to your feeding." And then
Mr. Parke turned in some surprise, for
Sergt, Gwynne, by long odds the "smart
est" and most soldierly of the non-commissioned
officers of the cavalry battel
lion, for the first time In his history
seemed to have forgotten himself.
Though his attitude had not changed,
his face had, and a strange look was in
his bright blue eyes a look of incre
dulity and wonderment and trouble all
combined. The lieutenant was fairly
startled when, as though gathering him
self together, the sergeant falteringly
"I beg pardon, sir he had ridden
"Down to the Ranch, sergeant that
one you can just see. away down the
"1 know, sir; but the name?"
For an instant the sergeant stood as
though dazed, then, with sudden effort,
saluted, faced about, and plunged into
the dark recesses of the stable.
