at the young officer. Before Perry could
peak agaiu, however, and more fully
explain the untoward circumstance,
there came a rush of hurrying footsteps
without, and the sound of excited voices.
The next minute they heard an eager,
angry challenge, and Perry recognized
the voice of the overseer or manager
whom he had met in the morning.
"What do you fellows want here?"
was his brusque and loud inquiry as he
sprang from the piazza and stood con
fronting the sergeant, who was quietly
seated in the saddle, and the question
was promptly echoed by three or four
burly men who, in shirt sleeves and
various styles of undress, came tumbling
in the wake of their leader and stood
now a menacing group looking up at the
If there be one thing on earth that
will stir an Irishman's soul to its inmost
depths and kindle to instant flame the
latent heat of his pugnacity, it is just
such an inquiry in the readily recog

Perry recognized the danger in a flash,
and, springing through the open case

Manager, these men simply obeyed or.

men, with a demonstratively loud laugh.
"Barm be bio wed! What harm could

"Quiet, now, DickT interposed the
overseer; but the other hands growled
approval, and Perry's eyes flashed with
anger at the insult. What reply he
might hare made was checked by the
sight of Sergt. Leary throwing himself
from the saddld and tossing hid reiria tn
one of the men. He knew well enough
what that meant, and sprang instant I v

Perry was standing holding his horse
by the curb as be spoke, facing the par
lor windows and confronting the angry
group of ranchmen. Within, though
nearer the window than he had left him,
was the bent form of the owner of Dun
raven, leaning on his cane and apparent

his as ailant could duck to earth and slip
out of the way, he had whipped out the
heavy Colt's revolver and brought its
butt with stunning crash down on the
ranch nan's defenseless head.
The "e was instant rush and commotion.
Ia vali old Maitland feebly piped his
protest from the veranda; in vain the
overseer seized and held back one or two
of the men and furiously called off the
rest. Aided by the darkness which
veiled them, the others made a simulta
neous rush upon the young officer and
sought to drag him from his plunging
horse. Perry held his pistol high in air,
threat ;ned with the butt the nearest as
sailant, yet loath to use further force.
Hewts still in the broad glare of the
parlor lights a conspicuous mark; eager
hands had grasped his bridle rein at the
very bit, and he could not break away;
and then missiles began to fly about his
devote d head, and unless he opened fire
he wan helpless. While two men firmly
held Nolan by the curb, half a dozen
others were hurling from the ambush of
darkiv-ss a scattering volley of wooden
billets and chunks of coal. He could
easily have shot down the men who held
It w is sore temptation, for already he
had ben struck and stung by unseen
projeciles; but just as the manager
sprang forward and with vigorous cuffs
induce i the men to loose their hold on
his re:n, there came three horsemen
chargi lg full tilt back into the crowd,
scattering the assailants right and left;
and. tl is time unrebuked, Sergt. Leary
leaped from the saddle and. with a rage
of lierve delight, pitched headlong into
battle vith the biggest ranchman in bis
v. ay. And this was not all; for behind
them at a rapid trot came other troopers,
and in a moment the open space was
thronged with eager, wondering com
rades full half of Stryker's company
in whise overwhelming presence all
thought of promiscuous combat seemed
to leaxe the ranchmen. They slipped
away :n the darkness, leaving to their
employers the embarrassment of ac
oountii g for their attack.
Lear? was still fuming with wrath and
raging for further battle and shouting
into th darkness fierce invective at the
vanish) d head of his opponent, lie
turned on the overseer himself, and but
for Per-y's stern and sudden prohibition
would have had a round with him, but
was forced to content himself with the
information conveyed to all within hear
ing tin t he'd "fight any tin min" the
ranch contained if they'd only come out
where the lieutenant couldn't stop him.
The tropers were making eager inquiry
as to the cause of all the trouble, and,
fearing further difficulty. Perry prompt
ly ordei-ed the entire party to "fall in."
82ence and discipline were restored In a
moment, and as the platoon formed rank
he icq aiied of a sergeant how they came
to be tkere. The reply was that it had
grown ho dark on the prairie that further
search seemed useless, Capt. Stryker and
most of the men had been drawn oil by
signals from the Cheyennes up the val
ley tow ir ds the post, and these men who
had bet n beyond Dunraven on the north
ern pra.rie were coming back along the
Monee trail when they saw the lights
and het rd voices over at the lower shore.
There t ley found Leary, who was excit
ed about something, and before they haa
timeto.'isk he suddenly shoutod, "They're
kill in' t le lieutenant. Come on, boys'."
and gal oped off with his own party; so
they followed. Perry quietly ordered
them t- leave a corporal and four men
with h.m, and told the senior sergeant
to march the others back to the post; he
would follow in five minutes. Then lie
turned to the manager.
"You will have to put up with my
keeping some of my men w ith me, in
view of all the circumstances," he said,
coldly. "But after this exhibition of
lawless: ess on the part of your people I
do not propose to take any chances. I
want tc say to you that it is my belief
that some of those ruffians you employ
can tell what has become of our missing
man, aid that you will do well to inves
tigate tnight. As to you. Mr. Malt
land," be said, turning to the old gentle
man, who had sunk into a low easy
chair, ' much as I regret having dis
turbed your privacy and that of the
ladies ol your household, you will ad
mit now that justice to my men and to
the serv tee demands that I should report
my suspicions and my reception here to

ter." There was no reply.
"I w sh you good night, sir," said
Perry; I ut his eyes wandered in to the
lighted j-arlor in search of a very differ
ent face and form and still there was
no answ r.
The manager came back upon the pi
azza and stepped rapidly towards them.
Perry quickly dismounted and bent
down ovr the crouching figure.
"Why. here!" he suddenly exclaimed,
"your et lployer is faint, or something's

answer tf the Englishman. "Just bear

Easily, between thetn. thev bura the
slight, attenuated form of the old man

swoon. Perry would have set a cushion

a broad, easy couoh, but the manager
jerked it away, lowering the gray hairs

Perry threw himself on his knees be
side her, marveling at the odd fate that
had so suddenly altered all the condi
tions of his nnlooked for visit. He seized
one of the long, tremulous hands that
lay so nerveless on the couch, and began
rapid and vigorous chafing and slapping.
Somewhere he had read or heard of wo

opened just as rapid footfalls were heard

rushed breathless and ruddy faced into

liis throat with delight at the gratitude
and kindness in her glance. She

scarf and collar at the old man's neck,
but making little progress.
"Let me help you," eagerly said Perry.
"That, at least, is more in my line.
And somehow their fingers touched as
he twitted at the stubborn knot. She
drew her hand away then, but it was
gently, not abruptly done, and he found
time to in xe that, too. and bless her for it.

young eyes, but she turned, after
quick glance at her father.

another quick step at the veranda, and

In England it is the law that wfaea a per
son aires a domestic servant, unless it u other
wise agreed, the hiring is for the year, and if
the employer wishes to discharge the servant
beiore tue time baa expired he must give ber
a month's notice or a month's pay. So the ser
vant must (rive a month's notice if the wishes
to leave. There ia no such law In this coun
try. While it is very frequent for th. mis
tress to expect a week's notice from her ser
vant liefore she leaves her place, and for ths
servant to expect a similar notice or a week's
pay iiefore discharge, such notice or pay is
not requireii by law. In the absence of any
agreement lietween tle parties, the mistress
has a right to discharge ber servant at any
time, with or without good cause, and the
servant tim a right to leave any time she
takes a notion to do so. The fact that a girl
is hired at a certain price per week dons not
require her to work th. week out. Such a
hiring only fixes the rate of wages, and not
the time of service. Therefore, while a
"week's ooticeor a week's pay" may be prop
er and commendable, it is not obligatory.
