tered the colonel's yard. The command

veraml.i at the moment, and in close
confabulation with Dr. Quia. Both gen
tlemen ceased their talk as the captain
entered, and then rose from their seat
as he stepiied upon the veranda floor.
"Oood evening. Stryker," said the col
onel, cheerily. "Come iu and hare a

hand at whist to-night."
"I shall be glad to join you, sir, after
parade, I hare come in to ask permis
sion to send a sergeant and a couple of
men, mounted, down to the Monee. One
of my best men is missing."
"Indeed! Who is that? Send the men,
Sergt. en-Tune, sir. The first time
I ever knew him to mUs 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

horse out for exercise and ride down the

"The two culprits!" said the colonel.
laughing. "Poor Perry is down in the
depths again. He rode up to me with
uch 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; ther knew he had turned
up just in the nick of time to save him
self an absent. What do yon suppose
can have happened to Gwynnn?"
I cannot imagine, sir, and am in
clined to be worried. He would never
willingly overstay a pass; and I fear
some accident has happened."
"Is he a good rider?" asked thedoctor.

"Oh, his perfect knowledge of trooper
duties and management of horses. It
took him no time to learn the drill, and
he was a sergvaut before he had been
with me two years. Then, if you ever
noticed. Colonel." said Capt. Stryker, ap
pealing to his chief, "whenever Uwynne
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

he?" asked the doctor. "I think 1 would

""Ye, Ttra RtiKlkuhmrn are att to look
to one another," said the colonel in re
ply, "and (iwynne is a particularly fine
specimen. He has your eyes and hair,
doctor, but hasn't had tuns to grow
grizzled and bulky yet, as you and I
have. One might say that you and the
sergeant were from the same shire."
"That would help me very little, since
I was only three years old when the gov
ernor emigrated," answered the doctor,
with a quiet smile. "We keep some
traces of the old sod, I suppose, but
I've been a Yankee for forty years, and
have never once set eyes on Merrie Eng
land in all that time. Did the sergeant
say where he wanted to go?" And th.
questioner looked up sharply.
"Nowhere in particular down the
valley was alL I remember, though,
that Mr. Parke said he suemud much ex

"Seems to laa I have, but I've forgot

"Heard what, rolonel?"
"The name of that ranch down the
Monee an English ranch, they tell me,
about seven miles away."
"Oh, yes! that one! They call it Dun
raven Ranch. Did the sergeant take any
of the bounds with him, captain? It oc

possibly that is the solution. They may

hospitality; though it would astonish me
if he yielded. Ill tell the men to inquire
there first, colonel, and will go and send
them now." And, bowing to his com
mander, Capt. Stryker turned and left
The doctor rose, thrust his hands deep
In his pockets, paced slowly to the south
ern end of the veranda, and gazed down
the distant, peaceful valley, an anxious
cloud settling on his brow. The colonel
resumed once more the newspaper he
had dropped upon the floor. After a mo
ment Dr. Quin came slowly back, stood
in front of the entrance a few seconds
looking irresolutely at the soldier
sprawled at full length in his reclining
chair, stepped towards him with a pre
paratory clearing of his throat as though
about to speak, and then, suddenly and
helplessly abandoning the idea, he
plunged down the short flight of steps,
hurried out of the gate and disappeared
around the fence corner in the direction
of the hospital. Immersed in his paper,
the colonel never seemed to note that he
had gone; neither did he note the fact
that two ladies were coming down the

t iued nearly opposite the shaded
er inda, a silvery peal of laughter broke
the stillness of the early evening. Mrs.
Belknap's laugh was delicious soft, me
lod ous, rippling as a canary song, and
jus; as spontaneous. Neither lady had
aid anything at the moment that was

dark eyes shot a sidelong glance to note
the effect. Down went the paper, and
np, with considerable propping from his
muscular arms, came the burly form of
the post commander. Two sweet, smil
ing faces beamed upon him through an
apt rture in the leafy screen, and Mrs.
Belknap s silvery voice hailed him in
"Did we spoil your siesta, colonel?
Ho can I make amends? You see, you
we so hidden by the vines that no one
wo ild dream of your being thero in am
buth." "Oh, Indeed, I assure you I wasn t
asleep." answered the colonel, hastily.
"Won't you come in, ladies, and sit
here in the shade awhile?"
"We thought we would 6troll around
unt il parade," said Mrs. Lawrence, hesi
tatingly, "and then sit down and watch
it 8uie where."
"No place better than this," promptly
antwered the colonel. "You can sit be
hind the vines on that side and see, or.
wh it we would infinitely prefer, sit here
at l be entrance and be seen. Meantime,
fvo been unpacking some photograph
albims this afternoon, and vou can
am lse yourselves with those while I put
on my harness. Come!"
The colonel's collection of photographs
wan something the ladies had already
heard a great deal of. One of the mo6t
gccial and popular officers of the army,
he lad gathored together several large
alb irosfull of pictures of prominent men
anc attractive and distinguished women
not only those with whom he had Iven
associated in his long years of service,
but men eminent in national and state
alii irs, and women leaders in society in
ma iv a gay metropolis.
loth the ladies had hoped to see this
famous collection the evening before, but
the colonel had not then unpacked the
alb ims, and they were disappointed.
No'v, however, the prospect was indeed
alii ring, and neither could resist. When
the first call sounded for parade a few
monenta after, and the commanding
orli'-er was getting himself into his full
dre uniform, the two pretty heads were
clote together, and two pairs of very
lovely eyes one dark and deep and dan
ger his, the other a clear and honest gray
ere dilating over page after page of
pjic tographed beauty. There was no
neel to puzzle over the identity of the
orig inals; under each picture the thought
ful colonel had carefully written the
name and address. Absorbed in this
tret t, they could barely afford time to
lutk up and smile their thanks as the
cohncl passed, clanking forth at the
sou.iding of adjutant's call, and were too
con pletely engrossed in their delightful
occupation to notice what took place at
T is long, slender line had formed
the infantry companies on the right and
left flanks, their neat and tasteful dress
of blue and white contrasting favorably
with the gaudy yellow plumage of the
four dismounted troops of the cavalry.
Cod i pan y after company had taken the
stat lreajue pose of "parade rest" and its
captain faced to the front again, the ad
jutant was just about moving tolas pot
on ;he prolongation of the front rank,
and the colonel settling back into the
conventional attitude of the command
ing officer, when from outside the rect
angilar inclosureof tbe parade ground
trim somewhere bsjond the men's
barracks there cameudden outcry and
commotion. There were shouts, indis
tinguishable at first, but excited and
star .ling. Some of the men in ranks
twitched nervously and partially turned
their heads, as though eager to look be
hind them and see what was wrong;
whe reat stern voices could be heard in
subuued but potent censure: "Keep your
ey to the front, there, Sullivan!" "Stand
fast there, cntr of Third company!"
The guard, too, paraded in front of its
quarters some distance behind the line,
was manifestly disturbed, and the voice
of the sergeant could lie heard giving
bun ied orders. Every man in the bat
talicn seemed at the same instant to ar
rive at one of two conclusions prisoners
escaping, or fire over at the stables and
all eves were fixed on the imperturbable
form of the commanding officer, as
though waiting the signal from him to
breaii and go to the rescue. But there
the rolonel stood, placid, calm, and ap
pareatly utterly unconscious of the dis
tant yet nearing clamor. The adjutant
hesitated a moment before proceeding
further, and glanced appealingly at his
chiel ; whereupon there came from the
blue and gold and yellow statue out on
the parade, in half reproachful tones,
lha iiuiet ordar, "Go on I" aud th. adju
tant recalled to bis senses and with evi
dent expression of his sentiments to the
eile t that if others could stand it he
coul 1, brusquely turned his head to
wards the band and growled, "Sound
off!" The boom and crash of drum and
cymbal and the blare of brazen throats
drov-ned for a moment the sound of the
turmoil without. The next thing the
battdion heard or saw was a riderless
horsj tearing full tilt out on the parade
and sweeping in a big circle from the
righs of the line down towards the roint
wnere the colonel stood.
Fi llowing him came a pair of Cher-
emu scouts, their ponies scampering in
purs ait, but veering off the green as their
ridei s realized that they were intruding
on 1 he ceremony of the day. Relieved
of hi pursuers, the fugitive speedily set
tled down into a lunging trot, and with
strea ming uiane and tail, with head and
ears erect, with falling bridle rein and
flapj ing stirrups, he circled rapidly the
open space between the colonel and the
line of battle, then came trotting back
atom; the front, as though searching in
the stolid rank of bearded faces for the
frienis he knew. Officer after officer
he J assod in review until he came to
Stryl.er's troop, posted on the right of
thecjvalry, and there, with a neigh of
recoj nition, lie fearlessly trotted up to
theciptain'soutetretched hand. Another
minute and two men fell out and made a
teinprary gap in the rank; through this
a sergeant tile closer extended his white
glove, relieved the captain of his charge
and 1 d the panting steed away.
Tho men retook their places; the cap
tain I gain resumed his position in front
of tin center of his company, dropped
the point of his saber to the ground and
settle 1 back into "parade rest;" the band
went on thundering down the line.
countermarched and came back to its
post m the right, making the welkin
ring with the triumphant strains of
"Nor hern Route," the trumpets pealed
the "retreat," the adjutant stalked his
three yards to the front, faced fiercely
to th left and shouted his resonant or
ders down the. line, three hundred mar-
tial forms sprang to attention, and the
bunudied arms came to the "carry"
with simultaneous crash, ranks were
openeJ with old time precision, the
paradt "presented" to the colonel with
all due formality, the manual was ex
ecuted just as punctiliously as though
nothii g unusual had happened; first ser
geantii reported, orders were published,
parad i formally dismissed; the line of
officers marched solidly to the front,
halted, and made its simultaneous salute
to th colonel, who slowly raised and
lowen-d bis white gloved hand in recog
nition; and then, and not till then, was
anyone allowed to speak of what was
upper nost in every mind that Sergt.
Gwynje's horse had coma in without
him, and that the animal's right flank
was st reaming with blood.
- Ten minute, late Lieut, Carry, la rid
ing dress, came lurrying down to tbs
colonel's quarters, where two or three
officers were now gathered at the gate.
The ladies had put aside the albums, and
with anxious faces were scanning the lit
tle group as though striving to gauge
from their gestures and expression the
extent of the calamity or the possible de
gree of danger. But Mrs. Lawrence
looked fairly startled when her bus
band's voice was heard for the first time
above the general hum of consultation:
"CoL Brainard, Mr. Perry is coming, I
see, and I presume there is no time to be
lost. You have asked if none of us who
were stationed here ever visited the
ranch, and the answer was no. May I
suggest that Dr. Quin could perhaps tell
something of its inhabitants?"
"Where is the doctor?" asked the col
onel, turning suddenly. "Orderly, go
and give my compliments to the post
surgeon and say I wish to see him here
a moment. All ready. Perry? Vou have
made quick work of it."
"All ready, sir. At least, I will be
the moment my horse gets here. There
go the men running to the stables now."
"Capt. Stryker will send a sergeant
and four men to report to you, and you
are to go direct to Dunraven Ranch.
The rest of tlie troop, with the Chey
enne, will scout the prairie to the east
and south. Twill soon be too dark to
trail, but three of the Indians are going
tiack on the horse's track as far as they
can. The adjutant is writing a note to
the proprietor of the ranch I don t know
"His name is Maitland, sir."
"Is it? Have you been there?"
"I've been around one end of it, out
side, but nowhere near the buildings.
It's all fenced in, sir, and the gates kept
"What an incomprehensiUe proceed
ing for Texas! Wait a ruoment while I
speak to Mr. Farnham; he's writing here
at my desk. Gentlemen, come in on the
porch and sit down, will you not?"
But they excused themselves and
hastened away to remove their full dress.
Capt. Lawrence had no need to call his
wife. She bade her companion good
evening, thanked the colonel with
smiling glance for the pleasure the pho
tographs had given her, and added
word of earnest hope that they might
find the sergeant uninjured. Then she
joined her husband, and together they
walked quickly away. Mrs. Belknap and
Mr. Perry were left for the moment alone.
"Can you walk home with me?" she
asked, in her low, modulated tones, the
great, heavily lashed, swimming dark
eyes searching his face. "1 bae nnt
seen you since they broke in upon our
talk last evening, and there is something
I want to ask you.
"I'm sorry, Mrs. Belknap, but I'm on
duty, you see," was the young fellow's
answer as be gave a tug to the strap of
his cartridge belt. "Can't vou ask me
"How can I" and the eves were full
of pathetic disappointment "when they
may come out any moment? You did
not finish telling me about about the
tassel last ni,lit. I believe you were glad
when tliey interrupted us. Were you
"Nonsense, Mrs. Belknap! 1 was haV'
ing toogHd a time lots of fun."
"les. was ttie reproachful answer.
"that is what it was to you mere fun
Ana now you are going away again
ifter promising to come in this evening.
"I have to go, Mrs. Belknap. Whv, 1
want to go. Haven't vou heard what
has happened about Sergt. llwynne?"
"Oh, yes, it is your duly, of course
but bow unlucky!" And the pretty face
was drooping with its weight of disap
pointment and sadiu-bs. She loaned
against the railing near his gauntlet cov
ered hand, tlie dark eyes pensively down
cast, the dark lashes sweeping her soft,
nushing ctiet-t. "And to-morrow you
are on guard, she presently continued.
"Yes. unless some one lias to go on for
me in case we are not back in the morn
ing in time."
"Then its good-by, I suppose," she
said, lifting her eyes once more to his.
"After to-morrow there will be little
chance of seeing you. Mrs. Page will
be here by that time."
Mr. t-erry looked at his fair com
pan ion with a glance that told of much
perturbation of spirit. Mrs. Pasre was
an old and cherished friend of Mrs.
Belknap's so the latter had always said
and now she was coming to visit her
from a station in the Indian territory.
Just why her coming should prevent
his seeing Mrs. Belknap or Lex seeing
him was more than the tall subaltern
could understand. On the brink of an
unpardonable solecism, on the very rag'
ged edge of a blundering inquiry, he
was 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
ttie doctors quarters; bes not there.
They say thats him, sir, riding off
yonder.' And the orderly pointed to
lami specs ju?i visible in the waning
twuight. far away southeastward be
yond the Monee.
