T WAS very kitethat niirht
nearly luiilniglit when
the colonel, neatel on hU
veranila ami ruuokinjf
eih'ar. can;! Hiirht of a
cavalry swrgeant hurriedly passing hi
front gate. The main wimhing parties
had long since come home, unntircesMful;
Lieut. Perry had returned and made re
port that the people at Dunraven denied
having seen or heard anything of
Gwynne, that both proprietor and mana
ger had treated his vi-tit as an affront,
nd that he had had much difficulty in
preventing a fmcan between his men and
a gang rouK'h fellows employed at the
ranch, tliut Mr. Maitland hud fallen
back in a swoon, and that he had left
him to the care of Dr. Quin, who ar
rived soon after the occurrence.
The colonel had been greatly interested
and somewhat excited over the details of
Perry's adventure as that young gentle
man finally gave than), for at first he
was aparenlly averse to saying much
about it. Little by little, however, all
his convention with Maitland and Ewen
was drawn out, and the particulars of
his hostile reception. The colonel agreed
with him that there was grave reason to
suspect some of the ranch people of
knowing far more of !Scrgt. tiwynne's
disappearance than they would tell; anil
finally, seeing Perrvs indisposition to
talk further, and noting his preoccupa
tion and apparent depression of spirits,
he concluded that between fatigue and
rasped nerves the young fellow would be
glad to go to bed, so he said, kindly:
Well, I won't keep you. Perry, you're
tired out. I'll sit up and see the doctor
when he gets hack and have a talk with
him, then decide what steps we will take
In the morning. I'll send it party down
the valley at daybreak, anyway. May I
offer vou some whisky or a Untie of
"Thank you, colonel, 1 believe not to
night. A bath and a nap will set me all
right, and I'll be ready to start out flm
thing in the morning, Good night, sir."
But CoL Brainurd could not go to sleep.
The garrison had "turned in," all except
the guard and Capt. Stryker. That officer
had returned an hour after dark, and,
getting a fresh horse, had started out
again, going down the south side of
the Monee to search the timlier with
lanterns, the Cheyenne scouts having
reported that Owynne'a horse had come
up that way. lie had been missed bv
Mr. Perry, who galloped up the trail to
catch the platoon before it reached the
ost. and tlie colonel, now that he had
heard the lieutenant's story, was impa
tieutly awaiting his return. I'p to with
in a few minutes of midnight, however,
neither Stryker nor the doctor had come;
dim lights were burning in both their
quarters and at the guard house. Every
where else the garrison seemed shrouded
in darkness. Catching sight of the yellow
chevron as they flitted through the flood
of light that (xiiired from his ipen door
way, the colonel instantly divined that
this must be a sergeant of Stryker's troop
going in search of his captain, and
promptly hailed him:
"What is it, sergeant? Any news?"
"Yes, sir," answered the soldier, halt
ing short. "Serjt. Gwynne'a come
hack. I was going to the captain's to
"How did he get back? Isn't lie in
jured?" "He says he's had a fall, sir, and has
been badly shaken up, but he walked in."
"Why, that's hingularl Did he see
none of the searching parties? see none
of their lights?"
"I can't make out, sir. He's a little
queer doesn't want to talk, sir. He
asked if his horse got in all right, and
went and examined the scratches, and
seemed troubled about them; but he
doesn't say anything."
"Has he gone to the hospital?"
"No. sir; he'll sleep in his usual bunk
at the ntuMe t-tiiglit. !l is only
bruised and sore, he says. His face is
cut and scratched and louiid up in hit
"Very well." said the colonel, after a
moment's thought.' "The captain will
look into the matter when he gets back.
You take your horse and ride down the
south side of the valley and find the
Cheyenne scouts, (.'apt. Stryker is with
them. Tell him the sergeant is home,
"Very well, sir." And the trooper
saluted, faced aliout, and di.sapeared
in the darkness; wltile the colonel arose,
and, puffing thoughtfully at his cigar,
began pacing slowly up anil down the
piazza. He wished Stryker were home;
he wished Capt. Lawrence were officer
of the dny, and, so, liable to come but
of his (uiurters again: he had heard just
enough aliout that odd English ranch to
make him feel disturbed and ill at ease.
There had evidently lieen hostility lie
tween his predecessor and the proprie
tor of Dunraveii, and very probably
there liad been bad blood between the
men of the Eleventh cavalry and the em
ployes of the ranch: else why should
there have been so unprovoked an as
sault upon the lieutenant this night?
Then there were other things that gave
him disquiet. Several officers had gath
ered upon the piazza during the early
evening; they were mainly of his own
regiment, but Capt. Iielkmip und two of
the infantry subalterns were there; Law
rence did not come. Of course the talk
was about the incident of the evening,
and, later, the rumors about Dunraven.
AU tins was new to the cavalrymen:
they had heard, as yet, nothing at all,
and were not a little taken aback by Uit
evident embarrassment and ominous si
lence of the three Infantrymen, when
the colonel turned suddenly on Belknap
with the question
By the way, captain, I hud no time
to ask Lawreaoe, and It really did not
occur to me until after he had gone, but
what did he moan by saying thut Dr.
Quin could tell us something about th
people at Dunraven?"
Belknap turned red and looked un
couifortubly at his two comrades, a
though appealing to them for aid. The
younger officers, however, would say
nothing at all, and the colonel promptly
saw thut he had stumbled on some piece
on garrison gossip.
"Never mind," he said, with a kindly
laugh. "I don't want to drag any stories
out by the roots. The doctor can doubt
less explain It all in good season."
"Well, Col. Brainard," answered Bel
knap, bulkily, "to tell the truth, I really
don't know anything about it, and I
don't know any one who does, though I
have heard some woman talk about th
post. The relations between Dr. Quin
and some of the officers o he Eleventh
were rather strained, and he is a some
what reserved and secretive man. The
stories were set afloat here last fall, and
we hi d to hear more or less of them un
til the Eleventh went away this spring.
We kiow only that Dr. Quin has been
to Da i raven and the rest of us haven't.
Possibly some of the Eleventh were
pique 1 because they had no such luck,
or pet haps their ladies did not like it be
cause Quin wouldn't tell them anything
about what he saw. At all events, he
refused to talk on the subject at all, and
allow, d people to draw their own con
clusion. "Hi probably told his post command-."
suggested Lieut. Farnham,
who, lis acting adjutant of the post and
an aspirant for the adjutancy of the
regimont, thought it a good opportunity
of pu ting in a word as indicative of
what ie considered the bounden duty of
an offl xt under like circumstances.
"W 11, no, I fancy not," replied Bel
knap. "About the only thing we really
do km w is that, in a somewhat angry
interview last fall. Col. Stratton forbade
Dr. Qi in's leaving the post or going to
Dunraven without his express permis
sion. I happened to be in the office at
"Wts it before or after that he was
said to go there so often?" asked Farn
ham. "Wll, both." answered Belknap, re
luctantly. "But understand me, Mr.
Farnhi m, I know nothing whatever of
"I si ould not suppose that Col. Strat
ton wo lid care to restrict his post sur
geon f -oin going thither if they needed
his pro essional services," said Col. Brai
"That was the point at issue, appar
ently," answered Belknap. "Col. Strat
ton sail that it was not on professional
ground i that he went, and thereby seemed
to widei the breach between them. Dr.
Quin would not speak to the colonel after
that, except when duty required it."
The conversation changed here, and
little more was said; but Col. Brainard
could not help thinking of a matter that
he carel ully kept to himself. It was not
his custom to require his officers to ssk
permission to leave the garrison for a ride
or hunt when they were to be absent
from nc duty, and only by day. Here it
was midnight, as he thought it over, and
the doctor had not returned, neither had
he mentioned his desire to ride away,
althoug i he had been with the colonel
well nigh an hour before parade. True,
he had tent the doctor word to go and
join Lie it. Perry at the gato of Dun
raven, and that would account for his
detention; but he knew that the surgeon
was several miles away from his post and
his patit nts at the moment that message
was sent .
Meantime, Perry, too, was having a
commui ion with himself, and finding it
all vexfition of spirit. All the way
home th memory of that sweet English
face wa uppermost in his thoughts. He
had beer, startled at the sight of a young
and fair woman at Dunraven; he had
felt a s;nse of inexplicable rejoicing
when su i said to him, "I am Miss Mait
land;" it would have jarred him to know
that she was w-ife; he was happy, kneel
ing bv tie side of the beautiful girl hs
had nevt r seen before that evening, and
delighted that he could be of service to
her. AL this was retrospect worth in
dulging; but then arose the black shadow
on his c-Lsion. How came Dr. Quin
striding in there as though "native and
to the mi nuer liorn?" how came he to
call her "Gladys?" Perry had been
pondering over this matter for full lialf
an hour n the homeward ride before he
bethought him of Mrs. Lawrence's re
marks aliout the signal lights. One
thing led to another in his recollection of
her talk. The doctor answered the sig
nals, no one else; the doctor and no one
else was received at Dunraven; the doc
tor had doclined to answer any questions
about the jieople at the ranch; had been
silent and mysterious, yet frequent in
his visits And theu, more than all,
w hat was that Mrs. Lawrence said or in
timated tl. at Mrs. Quin, "such a lovely
woman, t k," hud taken her children and
left him e irly that spring, and all on ac
count of somebody or something con
nected with Dunraven Ranch? Good
heavens! It could nut be "Gladys."
Instead of taking a bath and going to
lied, Mr. Perry poked his head into
Parke's bachelor chamber as he reached
the little c rttage they shared in common.
No Gladys disturbed the junior's dreams,
aparentli , for he was breathing regu
larly, sleeping the sleep of the just; and
ho, finding no one to talk to and being in
no mood t( go to bed at an hour so com
paratively early when he had so much to
think about. Perry filled a pipe and
perched h ruself in a big chair by the
window at at, intending to think it all
over again. He was beginning to hate
that doctoi ; he would havechafed at the
idea of any bachelor's being before him
in an acqua intance with Gladys Maitland,
but a marr ed man knowing her so well
as to make his wife jealous and himself
indifferent to that fact knowing her so
well as to trive "such a lovely woman,
too," into taking her children and quit
ting the marital roof that was too much
of a bad th ng, and Perry was sore dis
comfited, lie got up, impatient and rest
less, passed out to the little piazza in
.front of hit quarters, and began pacing
up and dov n, the glow from his corncob
pipe making a fiery trail in the darkness.
He would l.av been glad to go back to
the colonel and keep watch with him;
but there w as one thing connected with
his visit to Dunraven that he could not
bear to sp-nk of, especially as those
words of M -s. Lawrence recurred again
and again t his memory. He had not
said one wc rd he did not want to tell
of Gladys Vuitland.
And so i: happened that Perry, too,
was awake uid astir when the footsteps
of the cavtlry sergeant were heard on
their way to Capt. Stryker's quarters.
Listening, he noted that the soldier had
halted at th i colonel's, held a brief con
versation vith tlmt officer, and then
turned back across the parade. Instant
ly divining that news had come of Sergt.
Gwynne, Perry seized his forage cap and
hurried in pursuit. He overtook the
trooper just beyond the guard house and
went with him eagerly to the stables. A
moment more, and he was bending over
a soldier's l dside in a little room adjoin
ing the foraj e shed and by the light of a
dim stable lantern looking down into the
bruised and lattered features of the non
coiumissioneJ officer, whom he had pro
nounced of all others at Rossiter the
most respect -d and highly thought of by
the cavalry 4 arrison.
"Sergeant, I'm very sorry to see you
o badly mat led," said Perry. "How on
earth did it lappen?"
Gwynne tu med his head painfully until
the one unba idaged eye could look about
and see that noue of the stable guard
were within I earing, then back again and
up into the sympathetic face of his young
"Lieutenant, I must tell you and the
captain; and yet it is a matter I pro
foundly wish to keep us secret as pos
siblethe stoiy of my day's adventure, I
"You need not tell me at all If you do
not wish to," said Perry; "though I
think it is due to yourself that the cap
tain should ki ow how it was you were
gone all day a id that your horse and you
both came bat k in such condition."
"I undents nd, sir, fully," answered
O wynne, resp-ctfully. "I shall tell the
captain the wliole story, if he so desire.
Meantime, I an only ask that no one
else be told. : f the men in the troop had
an inkling of - be true story there would
be endless trovble; and sol have tried to
account for it ay saying my horse and I
had an ugly fell while running a coyote
through the tiuber. We did see a co
yote, down net r the ranch on the Monee,
and I did haw an ugly fall: I was set
upon by three of those ranchmen and
"Yes, damn themr said Perry, ex
citedly and wrathfully. "rve had an
experience with them myself to-night,
while we were searching for you."
"So much the more reason, air, why
my mishap should not be told among the
men. The two affairs combined would
be more than they would stand. There
are enough - Irishmen here in our troop
alone to go down and wine that ranch
out of existence; and I fear trouble as it
"Whether there will be trouble or not
will depend very much on the future
conduct of the proprietor and manager
down there. Of course we cannot tol
erate for an instant the idea of their
maintaining a gang of ruffians there who
are allowed to assault officers or men
who happen to ride around that neigh
borhood. You were not inside their
limits, were you?"
"Yes, sir." said the sergeant, pain
fully, "I was; I had tied my horse out
side and ventured in to get a nearer
look at the buildings."
"What time did it happen?"
"This morning, sir; not more than an
hour and a half after you spoke to me in
"Indeed! Then you must have lain
there all day! Why, Gwynne, this will
never do. I'll go and get the surgeon
and have him look you all over. You
must have been brutally mauled, and
must be utterly exhausted."
"Don't go, sir," said the sergeant,
eagerly stretching forth a hand. "It
it isn't as you think, sir. I have been
kindly cared for. They're not all ruf
fians down there, and the men who as
saulted me will be fully punished. I've
been quite as well nursed and fed and
brandied and bandaged as though I'd
been carried right to hospital. Indeed,
I don't need anything but rest. I'll be
all right in a day."
"But 1 think Dr. Quin ought to see
you and satisfy us you are not injured."
"Be satisfied, sir. The doctor has seen
"Why, but how? where? He was here
all day, and only went away at 6unset.
He joined me at Dunraven about 9
o'clock, and hadn't returned when 1
came in. Did be find you and bring
Gwynne hesitated painfully again:
"The doctor saw me this evening
down near where I was hurt; but I got
back here without his help, sir. Lieu
tenant," said the soldier, suddenly,
"there are one or two things connected
with this day's work that I cannot tell.
Come what may, I must not speak of
them, even to the captain."
Perry was silent a moment. Then he
"I do not think any one here will
press yon to tell what you consider it
might be ungrateful or dishonorable in
you to reveal. I will do what I can to
see that your wishes are respected. And
now, if you are sure I can do nothing
for you. good night, sergeant." A nd tbe
young officer held out his hand.
"Good night, sir," answered Gwynne.
He hesitated one moment. It was the
first time since he entered the service,
nearly five years before, that an officer
offered him his hand. It was a new and
strange sensation. It might not be "good
discipline" to take advantage of it, but
there were other reasons. Gwynne
looked up in the frank blue eyes of his
lieutenant and read something there that
told a new story. Out came a hand as
slender and shapely as that of the young
officer, and the two were silently and
"How can I question him?" said Perry
to himself as he walked slowly home

holding hack? something I cannot speak
of? By Jupiter! can his be the same rea

this familiar expression refers oidy to the
faint ftppwruca of a tmcm which tb. moon

quainted with folk lore are aware that the
object referred to under tbe name of tbe Man

man figure wbieb appears on the western aide
of tbe luminary when eight days old. The
figure ie something like that of a man In tbe
act of climbing, and carrying a thorn hush

The Fruit of Violence.
In no case is the folly of violence in
medication more conspicuously shown by
its fruit than In the effect upon the intess
tines of excessive purgation. The
stomach and bowels are first painfully
griped, then the latter is copiouslv. sud
denly and repeatedly evacuated. This is
far beyond the necessities of the case,
most nnnatural, excessively debilitating.
Tbe organs are incapacitated from re
suming their function with normal
moderation. An astringent it resorted

condition of inaction . To this monstrous
and harmful absurdity, Hostetler's Stom

relaxes gently, naturally, sufficiently, it
diverts bile from tbe blood into its proper
channel, it insures healthful digestion and
complete assimilation. It is a complete
defense against malaria, and conquers
