some mount, his garb ami hU general
appearance. Perry sot this stranger down
as one of the Englishmen residing at the
ranch. It was not fear of arrest and
capture that sent liim scowling away
arrow the prairie; it was deliberate in
tent to avoid, and this was, to Terry's
thinking, tantamount to insult. One
moment lie gazed after the retreating
form of the horseman, then clapped his
forage cap firmly down upon his head,
shook free the rein and gave Nolan the
longed for word. Another instant, and
with set teeth and blazing, angry eyes
he was thundering at headlong speed,
swooping down upon the unconscious
stranger in pursuit. Before that sun
burned, curly haired, bulkily framed
young man hud the faintest idea of what
was impending, Mr. Perry was reining
in his snorting steed alongside and cut
tingly accosting him:
"I lieg your pardon, my good sir, bu
may I axk what you mean by trotting
away when it must have been eviJont
that I wanted to speak with you?"
The stranger turned slightly and coolly
eyed the flushed and indignant cavalry
man. They were trotting side by side
now, Nolan plunging excitedlv, but the
Englitih home maintaining his even
stride; and stronger contrast of type and
style one could scarcely hope to find. In

gloves, the stocky figure of the English
man had nothing of grace or elegance.
but was sturdy, strong, and full of that
burly self reliance which is so charac
teristic of the race. Above his broad,
stooping shoulders were a bull neck, red
dened by the sun, a crop of close curl
ing, light brown hair, a tanned and
honest face lighted up by fearless gray
eyes and shaded by a thick and curling
beard of lighter hue than the hair of his
He rode with the careless ease and su
preme confidence of the skilled horse
man, but with that angularity of foot
and elbow, that roundness of back and
bunclang of shoulders, that incessant
rise and fall with every beat of his
horse's powerful haunch, that the effect
was that of neither security nor repose.
His saddle, too, was the long, flat seated
Australian model, pig skin, with huge
rounded leathern cushions circling in
front and over the knees, adding to the
cumbrousness of his equipment and in
no wise to the comfort; but his bit and
curb chain were of burnished steel,
gleaming as though fresh from the hands
of some incomparable English groom,
and the russet reins were soft and plia
ble, telling of excellent stable manage
ment and discipline. Perry oouldn't
help admiring that bridle, even in tit
temporary lit of indignation.
As for him tall, slender, elocantly
made, clothed in the accurately fitting
undrew 'blouse' of the army and in rid
ing breeches that displayed to best ad
vantage the superb molding of his pow
erful thighs, sitting like centaur well
down in the saddle, his feet and lower
logs, cased in natty riding boots, swing

swaying with every motion of his horse,
graceful, gallant, and to the full as pow

Perry was an exquisite in his soldier
taste, and never, except on actual cam
paign, rodo his troop horse without hit

tiosses. All this, and more, the English
man seemed quietly noting as. finally,
without the faintest trace of irritability,
with even a suspicion of humor twink
ling about the corners of his mouth, he

"Well, here! I've no intention of in

prairies or the west there was such a

"Amply, I should say; and yet were I

The sunbeams were glinting on the pol
is bed ornaments of his forage cap and
0:1 the bright yellow chevrons of his
si ugly fitting blouse. Tall and slender
and erect was the coming horseman, a
model of soldierly grace and carriage,
and as he drew nearer and his hand

gesture from his young superior brought
ar, instant pressure on the rein, and
bene and man became an animated
stttue. It was a wonderfully sudden
vt easy check of a steed in rapid mo

se.f, could not withhold his admiration.
"Where did you learn tlwt sudden

"No, sir, and, except for breakfast-
just after reveille I have been at stables

lieut jnant got his horse."
"Yes, I remember. Then no one rode

"Cirtaiuly, sir. The doctor rode into
the p jet just about an hour after the lieu

He went right around to his own stable,
over towards the hospital"
A I jok of amaze and stupefaction was
settling on Perry's face. Now for the
first :ime he recalled Mrs. Lawrence's
intimuions with regard to Kie doctor
and his connection with the signal lights.
Now 'or the first time it occurred to him
that the secret of those cavalry hoof
print at the gate was that no ranchman,
but an officer of the garrison, had been
the mans of leaving them there. Now
for th j first time it flashed upon him that
the Englishman's astonishment and con
cern cn hearing of those hoof tracks In
dicate J that the story of a mystery at
Dunn ven in which the doctor.waa con
nected amounted to something more
than garrison rumor. Now for the first
time an explanation occurred to him of
the siigular conduct of the horseman
who I ad dodged him by crossing the
Monee. Never in bis young life bad be
knowti the hour when fa waa ashamed
or afn id to look any man in the eye. It
stung nun to think that here at Roasiter,
wearii g the uniform of an honorable
profession, enjoying the trust and con
fidence of all his fellows, waa a man
who h.i4 some secret enterprise of which
he dar xl not speak and of whose discov
ery ha stood in dread. There could be
little; d ubt that the elusive stranger was
Dr. in nd that there was grave, rea
son for the rumors of which firs. Law
renoe had vaguely told him.
For a moment be sat, dazed and irreso
lute, Nolan impatiently pawing the turf
the while; then, far across the prairie
and down the valley there came floating,
quick and spirited, though faint with
distance, the notes of the cavalry trum
pet sounding "right, front into line."
He looked up, startled.
"They're out at battalion drill, sir,"
said the sergeant. "They marched out
just as I left the stables."
"Just my infernal luck again! gasped
Perry, aa be struck spur to Nolan and
sent him tearing up the slope; "I might
have known I'd miss it!"
nAT evening a group
of cavalry officers came
fwiinrerinir luarlr trtm
stables, and as they reached the walk
in front of oflicers row a dark featured,
black bearded, soldierly looking captain
separated himself from the rest and en
tered the colonel's yard. The command
ing officer happened to be seated on his
veranda at the moment, and in close
confabulation with Dr. Quin. Both gen
tlemen ceased their talk as the captain
entered, and then rose from their seats
as he stepped upon the veranda floor.
"Good evening, Stryker," said the col
onel, cheerily. "Come in and have a
seat. Tlie doctor and I were just won
dering if we could not get you to take a
hand at whist to-night."
"I shall be glad to join you, sir, after
parade. I have come in to ask permis
sion to send a sergeant and a couple of
men, mounted, down to the Monee. One
of my liest men is missing."
"Indeed! Who is that? Send the men,
"Sergt. Gwynne, sir. The. first time
I ever knew him to miss a duty."
"Your stable sergeant, too? That is
unusuaL How long has he been gone?"
"Since battalion drill this morning. He
was on hand when the men were sad
dling, and asked permission to take his
horse out for exercise and ride down the
valley a few miles. I 6aiJ yes, never
supposing he would be gone after noon
roll call; and we were astonished when
he failed to appear at stables. Perry says
be met him two miles out."
"The two culprits!" said the colonel,
laushinjj. "Poor Perry is down in the
depths apain. He rode up to me with
such a woebegone look on his face at
drill this morning that I could hardly
keep from laughing in front of the whole
line. Even the men were trying hard
not to grin; they knew he had turned
up just in the nick of time to save him
self an 'absent.' What do you suppose
can have hapjiened to Gwyune?"
"I cannot imagine, sir, and am in
clined to be worried. lie would never
willingly overstay a pass; and I fear
some accident has happened."
"Is he a gxxl rider?" asked the doctor.
"None Letter in the regiment. He is
a model horseman, in fact, and, though
he never alludes to nor admits it, there
is a general fooling among the men that

nationality; he is English to the back

"What made them think he had been
in the cavalry service abroad?"
"Oh. his perfect knowledre of trooper
duties and management of horses. It
took him no time to learn the drill, and
he was a sergeant before he had been
with me two years. Then, if you ever
noticed, colonel, said Capt. Stryker, ap
pealing to his chief, "whenever Gwynne
stands attention he always has the fin
gers of both hands extended and point
ing down along the thigh, close against
it so." And Stryker illustrated. "Now.
you never see an American soldier do
that; and I never saw it in any but Eng

"Yes," was the reproachful answer,
"that is what it was to you mere fun.

"I have to go, Mrs. Belknap. Why, I
want to go. Haven't you heard what

"Oh, yes, it is your duty, of course;

ust why her coming should prevent

could understand. On the brink of an
unpardonable solecism, on tlie very rag
ged edge of a blundering inquiry, he
waa saved, in her estimation, by the
sudden return of the orderly and the re
appearance of the colonel
"I've been to the hospital, sir, and to

They say that's him, sir, riding off
