of praine when I.icut
Perry and his little party.
after s brisk can Wr down
the valley, reached the
barbed inclosure of Dunravon, and th.
young commander led unhesitatingly to
the gateway on the northern line, A
serffwtnt of hi. troop and two private
soldiers were his escort at the moment; a
third man. by direction of Col. Brainard,
hod Ix-en sent at the gallop in pursuit of
the distant speck which the orderly had
pronounced to be Dr. Quin. and the in
tractions which this messontrer bore
were to the effect that the poet surgeon
should ride by the most direct route and
join LicuL Perry at the north gate of th.
In the few minute, which elapsed be
tween the announcement of the doctor's
departure on his solitary and unexpected
ride and the arrival of the little mounted
escort. Perry had time to tell the colonel
something of the situation dowi the
Monee aud to make a rough sketch of
the inclosiire and the distant buildings.
The direction taken by the doctor, up to
the moment when the black sjieck dis
appeared from view in the waning light,
would be very apt to lead him, if he rode
far enough, to some point on the wire
fence which spanned the wetern limit
of Dunraven; but that point would beat
least tire or six miles south of the valley.
Possibly there was no gateway north of

the prairie; but the more Mr. Perry
thought of the matter as he rode away
tne more wa ne satisfied tliat some
where far flown that wertern line there
was an entrance where Dr. Vuin, at
leant, had the "open sesame.''
Perryi orders were, in came nothing
was seen or heard of SergL Gwyune
while on the way thither, to enter the in-
cloNiire and make inquiries at the ranch
itself. Meantime, the Cheyenne scouts
had been hastily summoned from tbeir
lodges along tiie Monee just above the
poet and sent scurrying forth upon the
prairie to trail the horse's foot prints and
so work back as far as possible before
darkness iuterposed. Capt. Sis ker, too,
and a dozen of bU tst men, h.sd mount

One thln the sergeant had to tell Mr.
Perry which confirmed him in the belief
that the sooner they got to Dunraven the
quicker they would be at the scene of
their comrade's mishap, whatever that
might prove to be. Be had had no time
himself to visit the stables and examine
the wounds on the horse's flank, but as

want to get there before dark, if possi
ble," It was dark in the timber, however, as
they rode through and reined up at the
gateway. It would l half an hour at
the very least, thought Perry, before the
doctor could join them, if he came at all.
It was by no means certain that the mes
senger had overtaken him, and, even if
he lio.l, tt i.rotjul.ta that the doctor
would be in great haste to come? Uis
mysterious movements of the morning,
his undoubted connection with the night
signals from the ranch, the fact that he
had given his commanding officer no
inkling whatever of these outside inter
ests of his, all tended to make Perry dis
trustful of their jKst surgeon. He would
not speak of it to a soul, or hiut at the
possibility of such a thing, untd he had
evidence that was indisputable, but the
young officer was sorely perplexed by
these indications of some secret and un
lawful enterprise on the jKirt of their
new comrade, aud he doubted his sym
pathy in the mission on which they had
been hurried forth.
Dismounting to examine the gate while
still pondering this mutter over in his
mind, Perry found it locked as securely
as he had left it in the morning. The
sergeant and his men dismounted, too,
at a low spoken word from their officer,
ana stood at the heads of their punting
horses, looking In .dent surprise at th.
strong and impervious barrier that
crossed their track.
"The gate is locked aud the fence Im
passable, sergeant," said Mr. Perry,
we cannot get our liorses through or
over unless w. hack down a post or two.
You can't cut such wire as this with any
tool we've got. I'll leave Nolan here
with you and go 00 to the ranch on foot;
it lie. about hulf a mile to th. south. If
th. doctor comes, he can follow me. If
I do nut come or send back in half
hour from this you three come after me,
for 1 11 ueed you.
With that, slowly and 'carefully, and
not without a muttered malediction on
the stinging barbs, Mr. Perry wriggled
through between th. middle wire, and
finally stood within the inclosure, read
justing his waist belt and holster. Then
he took his revolver from its leathern
case, carefully tried th. hammer and
cylinder, saw that each chamber
loaded, and turned onoe more to the ser

the light, at the ranch buildings, still
some six or seven hundred yard away,
All through the eastern sky the stara wer.

brilliant planets shone like molten gold.
AH wa i silence and peace on every hand,
and, bit for those guiding, glimmering
lights iJt the south, all would nav, told
of desc lation. Behind him in the valley
waited his faithful men. Far beyond the
Monee. out on the northern prairie, he
knew that comrades were scouring th.
face of the earth in search of their miss
ing brcther. Up the stream, somewhere
behind them, the Cheyenne, were pa
tiently trailing the hoof tracks as loDg
light should last; he knew that search
must bi at an end by this time, and that
some o ' their number, at least, would be
riding down to join his men. Whoever

in air; the signal could be heard a long

wards the flap of his holster; and it
would l a wonder If a ranch that sur-
roundei. itself with fifty miles of barhed
wire fencing were not further environed
by a pa 'k of watch dogs of the most ap
proved and belligerent breed. Once
having passed the distant barrier of that
gate on the Monee, however, his way
was unimpeded, and, to all appearance,
utterly jnmarked; he h:vJ arrived with
in fifty yards of the foremost building,
the homestead, before he was brought to
halt. Then he stopied short, sur
prised, half credulous, and all attention,
listenirt; to the "concord of sweet
sounds" that came floating from the
open cainent somewhere along the east
front of the big, gloomy house.

for won lerment; that the invisible per

he never knew it until one sweet ni-'lit

Howe .-er, matters more presning than

just heri. He had reached Dunraven
after al. Neither dog nor man had
challenged. One. within those barbed
and frov-ning barriers, all the encircling
objects t poke of security and rest. Far
away U wards the corrals he heard the
sound ot voices in jolly conversation; a
rich, melodious laugh rang out on the
cool ev ning air; he heard some one
shouting genial good night to somebody
else, and then the slam of a distant door.
Presently a light popped out from a
window in what he believed to t a
storehouse, and all was still again. Even
the piano lutd ceased. Now was his
time, tl ought Perry; and so, lulJly
mounting the steps, he stood upon a
dark portico and strode to the black
shadow in the wall before him where he
knew the main doorway must be. It
was his intention to knock or ring. Up
stairs dit 1 lights were shining through
the opot windows, but on this front of
the ground floor all was darkness. His
gauntleti d hand felt all the face of the
door in arcb of a knob or knocker, but
nothing of the kind was there; neither

This time the music was vehement and
spirited, uid no banging of his on oaken

rivalry. Uncertain what to do, ho con
cluded to recounolter the eastern front.
A few st-'ps brought him to the corner.

bathed at its farther end in a flood ol
light that streamed from one opened
Venetian window, and through this cur
tained ap rture poured the grand tones
of the melody. "That fellow can rattle
more mu;ic out of a piano than any man
I ever h-ard," muttered Mr. Perry to
himself, ss he strode down the wooden
gallery. "Wonder if it's that boss cow
puncher I met this morning." Another
moment i nd he stood at the open win
dow, ruot 1 to the spot, and with his
frank bluoeyes fairlv starting from their
sockets in amazement at the sight that
met them all unprepared.
Across 1 spacious room, hung with rich
curtains, carpeted with costly rugs of
Oriental sake, furnished with many
eozy chair and couch, and tables covered
with dain'y bric-a-brac, and shelves with
tempting tKtoks. lighted by several large
and beautiful antral lamps, some with
colored k ades of crimson and gold and
delicate tint of blue, there stood close tc
the oppot ite wall a large piano of the
class knou-n as the "grand," rare enough
among tl e railway towns west of the
Mississippi states, but utterly unlooked
for here, t. week s long march from the
nearest of the Texan railways. That in
itself wer sufficient cause for much sur
prise, notwithstanding the measure of
preparatica lie bad had in Mrs. Law
The sight that well ulgh took his
breath away was something far more
than the interior of a luxurious and
lieautifull;- appointed room. Nothing
that had lieen said or hinted prepared
him in th faintest degree for the appa
rition foci ig him, seated at the piano, of
a perforn er utterly unlike the "cow
puncher" -vhom he had met in the morn
ing. The "fellow" now beading over the
key board was a young, exquisitely fair
and grace! ul woman. Even as he stood
there in the full glare of the jmrlor
lights, slu lifted up a pair of soft.
shaded, lu itrous eyes and saw him.
The music stopped with sudden hhock.
Tannhausfr was undone. The firm,
white, slu Kily hands fell nerveless in
her lap; i pallor as of faintness shot
over the ild eyed face, only to be in

up to her very brows. Startled she
might hav.i been for an instant; scared
not a bit of it! One instant only of
hesitation, then she rose and swept gal
lantly for ard to meet him.
Instincti 'ely Perry's hand went up to
the visor of his forage cap and bared the
bright, cur.iug crop of hair. Speechless
with amaze, he could only bow before
her and wiut her question; but it was a
moment before she could speak. Brave
as she was the sudden apparition of a
stranger staring in upon her solitude
from an op id casement was a shock that
served to paralyze the vocal cords. He
could see t lat she was making gallant
enort to c-mtrol th. tremor that had
seized upoti her and to inquire the pur
pose or bis coming. He could see, too,
that the slg it of the uniform had reas

caressing tone about it when he spoke to

unwelcome to this one. She stood erect,
her fingers interlacing as she clasped her
bands in front of her and looked him
well over with her brave eyes. The color
ebbed and flowed through the creamy
whiteness of her face, but the roses were
winning every moment the red roses of
the house of Lancaster.
And you wished to see whom?"
she presently asked, with courtesy in

leaving Ned Perry standing gazing after
her, spell bound.
He listened to the swish of her trailing
stilts through the dimly lighted room
beyond, through an invisible hallway,
and then to the quick pit-a-pat of her
feet up some uncarpeted stairway. He
heard hor moving quickly, lightly, along
the corridor of the upper story until the
footfalls were lost at the rear of the
house, then a distant tap upon a door
way, and a soft voice, barely audible,
calling, "Papa." He heard her speak
again, as though in response to inquiry
from within; he heard her , raise her
voice, as though to repeat an answer to
a previous question, and this time her
words were distinct. "An officer from
the fort," she announced; and then fol
He heard a door quickly opened; he
heard men's voices in low, eager, excited
talk; be heard her sweet tones once
more, as though in expostulation, saying
something about the sergeant, lost or
wounded, and they were merely inquir
ing for him; he heard a stern, harsh in
junction of ''Silence! that will do! some
quick, hurrying footsteps, a man's spur

the back of the house, a colloquy aloft
in fainter tones, and then closing doors
He waited five ten minutes, and still
no one came; but the murmur of voice,
in subdued but earnest controversy was
again audible on the second floor, and
at lost a door was opened and he heard
the same stern tones that had command

it all means. I've seen the girl, anvhow.

He heard a heavy 6ten, accented bv
the sharp, energetic prodding of a cane;
it came slowly along the hall, slowly
and majestically down the stairs, slowly
into the lower front room, and presently
there loomed forth from the darkness
into the broad glare of the astral, at the
hanging portieres the figure of a tall.
gray haired, spectacled, dimly built and
fragile looking Englishman, erect as
pride and high spirit could hold
a man against the ravages of
age and rheumatism; sharp, stern
and imperious of mood, as every glance
and every feature plainly told; vehement
and passionate, unless twitching lips and
frowning brows and angry, snapping
eyes belied him; a man who had suffered

The young soldier had been standing
by a center table, coolly scanning the
picture, on ths walls, and determining
to present a rather exaggerated picture
of nonchalance as reward for the hostile
language of the proprietor of Dunraven.

vective when that gentleman reached the
room; but no sooner had he passed the
portiere than be baited short, and Mr.
Perry, turning suddenly, was amazed at
the pale, startled, yet yearning look in
his quivering face.
The moment the young man confront
ed him there came as sudden a chanee.
It was with evident effort that he con
trolled himself, and then, after brief
searching study of Perry's face, accosted
him, coldly and with sarcastic emphasis
"To what circumstance do I owe th.
honor of this intrusion?"
"I regret you so consider It. Mr. Mait-
