T JUST what hour the
pwt surgeon returned
to Fort Komtiter that
night no one seemed to
know. Ha wan present
at sick call, and imperturbable as ever,
on the following morning, and the few
officers who were at headquarters after
guard mounting were able to affirm that
the colonel had been courteous as usual
In his greeting to the medical officer, and
that nothing whatever had been said
about his being away so late the previ
ous evening. Capt. Stryker came home
soon after midnight, had a brief talk
with his colonel, ond went over to the
stables to inquire into Gwynnes condi
tion before be went to bed. Parke came
Into Perry's room after morning stables,
and told hiru, as he was yawning and
stretching in bed, that the captain had
had quite a long talk with Gwynne that
morning, and that "something was tip"
he didn't know what. Later in the
day Perry was sent for by Col. Brainard
and found the commanding officer in
consultation with Capt. Stryker and two
other troop commanders.
At their request he repeated the story
of his adventure at Dunraven, beginning
with his instructions to the men he left
at the gate, and ending with old Malt
land's swooning; and about an hour after
he had finibhed he saw the adjutant with
a small escort ride away down the valley,
and rightly conjectured that the colonel
bad sent a letter to Dunraven inquiring
into the cauro of the assaults on two
members of bis command. Battalion
drill kept him occupied all the morning;
a garrunn court convened at noon and
sat until ekiruaioh drill began at 3 p. m.;
and so it happened that not until near
parade did he find a moment's time to
himself, lie longed to see Mrs. Law
rence and question her as to the nature
of the "Dunraven stories" she bad men
tioned; for what had been a matter of
indifference to him then had suddenly
become of vivid interest. There were
ladies sitting on the Lawrences' gallery,
he could plainly see, as the cavalry offi
cers came tramping in from afternoon
stables, but be could not hope to auk or
hear anything about a matter so near
bis heart in the presence of so manv
sympathetic and interested listeners. He
kept away towards his own gate, there
fore, until he saw that there, leaning on
the gate port, and apparently awaiting
him, stood Dr. Quin.
Perry would gladly have avoided the
doctor, the antagonism he was beginning
to feel for him was of a character that
would hardly brook concealment. Cor
dial and joyous in manner as he was to
almost every man, woman aud child be
met, it was all the more noticeable that
to the very few whom he held in dislike
or distrust his bearing was cold and re
pellent in the last degree. Something
told him the doctor was there to speak
to him about their chance meeting at
Dunraven. He did not want to speak to
him at all, just now. Yet how could he
hope to have these matters explained
witnout a meeting ana a talk? While
the officers strolled over and stopped,
most of them, in front of the group of
ladies at Lawrence's, Perry stalked
straight across the parade aud the boun
dary road, with his blue eyes fixed on
the doctor's face.
The latter was studying him as he
came, and doubtless read that expression
of coldness and distrust; possibly be re
sented it. At all events, something
prompted him to speak in a tone less
cordial than he had ever employed to
wards Perry "a youngster wham I
thoroughly approve of," as be said be
fore be had known him a week. Still
leaning on the gate post, and renting bis
head on his hand, the doctor began:
Mr. Terry, I have been to see you
twice tmlay, but could not find you, and
l wanted to snak itli you on a matter
cf svtttie tiuiNirtance.
" 1 uu onilil have found me on drill or
the court, if anything immediate was
needed. I have been no w here else, ex
cept to stable," said Perry, shortly.
"It was a personal matter a some
what embarrassing one and I thought
best to see you alone."
"Well, here I am. Dr. Quin; drive
ahead and let us hare it."
"1 wanted to ask you if, while you
were at the ranch last night, you saw
anything of a large signet ring, with a
crest and motto engraved on the stoua."
"I did not, unless you mean the one
Mr. Muitland wore."
"The very one! You noticed that, did
"I noticed he had something of the
kind on bis left hand when he came
"And it was nowhere to be found after
you went away. You may remember
you were chafing and slapping that hand,
and I thought you might have accident
ally removed it at that time."
"The reflection is not a pleasant one,
Dr. Quin," said Perry, with an angry
light in the blue eyes.
"Pardon me, Mr. Perry; I put it awk
wardly, but I mean no reflection what
ever. Miss Maitland mentioned your ef
forts to restore the old gentleman to con
sciousness, and together we searched the
sofa and the floor after we had put him
safely to bed and discovered the loss of
the ring. It is one to which he attaches
peculiar value, and its loss baa preyed
upon him. While I know very well you
could not have the ring, I was asked to
ascertain if you remembered seeing it,
and so establish the truth. of Mr. Main
land's belief that it was on his finger
when he went to that room."
"It was; but I do not recollect its be
ing on bis band after he was carried to
the sofa. It would surely have attracted
my attention while chafing it."
"The parlor , hall and piazza have been
swept and searched, I am told by this
note," and the doctor indicated a Little
missive be held in bis hand, whereat
Perry's face did not brighten, "and with
no success. I was asked to inquire of
you, and if it has annoyed you, as I in
fer by your manner, pray It that be
my apology. Then I am to say you saw
it when Mr. Maitland entered the room,
but not again?"
"Precisely; unless you choose to add
to your correspondent that the next
time I am associated with missing prop
erty at Dunraven I would prefer to be
questioned direct, and not through a
A quiet smile shone for an instant on
the doctor's grave face:
"I fear that I have not accomplished
my mission very diplomatically, Mr.
Perry aud am sorry to have vexed you.
The colonel tells me, by the way, that I
ought i o say to you that the reason I
was so long in reaching your party Last
night as that I was detained attending
to snot ber case one of our own men.
Good evening, sir." And, raising his
forage cap, the doctor walked slowly
and wi h dignity away, leaving Perry
too surprised to speak.
"The colonel told him to tell me!" was
Perry's wondering soliloquy at last.
"Then I suppose be must have told the
chief so ne story to account for his being
away." It waa pretty evident from the
young f sllow's manner as be entered the
bouse tl at the story was not one which
truck Mm as being entitled to confi
dence oi consideration.
On th. table in his little sitting room
Lay a da nty note. It was not the first
he had rsoeived under that superscrip
tion, and he had not been slow to open
and reac them. If anything, the cloud
upon his forehead seemed to deepen at
sight of t. He picked it up, looked im
patiently at the address, hesitated a mo
ment, totted it back on his desk and went
into the jiner room. He would not read
it now; t was almost parade time; he
had to bi.tlie and change his dress, for
after par uie he was to dine at the quarters
of an infantry friend, and Capt. and
Mrs. Lawrence were to be of the party.
Already it was noted that when any of the
few infaiitry people at the post gave a
little tea or dinner at which only eight
or ten w re gathered together, the Bel
knaps Wf re not invited on the same even
ing with Mr. Perry, and vice versa. When
Parke ctme in, whistling and singing
and banging doors and making all man
ner of tin xuth noise in the exuberance
of his spi its, he bolted into Perry's do
main, as was his wont, and begin a rat
tling comment on the events of the day.
"By th way." he broke in, suddenly,
"we can't both go to-morrow; and I sup
pose you -vant to."
"Why, out with the hounds; to-morrow's
the lay, you know."
Perry jave a whistle of perplexity.
The colon J had promised the ladies that
there should be a run this very week.
All the fltet hounds of the cavalry bat
talion were to be out, and all the officers
who could be spared from the day's du
ties; a detachment was to go over into
the valley of a stream some ten miles
away, pitc h tents in the shade, and there
set lunchein for the entire party; horses
were to l provided for all the ladies
who cared to go mounted, buggies and
"buckboai ds" were to convey tne others,
and it was to be a gala occasion. Ante
lope, coytte or jack rabbit any four
footed game the prairie afforded was to
be "courstd" in due state and ceremony;
the ladies "in at the death" were to be
crowned and subsequently presented
with tropl ies of the chase more sightly
than the n ask or brush au naturel. The
affair had been gayly talked over that
very evening of the colonel's dinner, but
the events of the previous day and the
perplexities of the one just closing had
completely driven it all out of his head.
And yet be was engaged to ride with
Mrs. Belki ap, the amazon of Foil Rossi
tert And for the first time in his life
Ned Perry would have been glad of an
excuse to get away from a gallop with
an accomp ished equestrienne.
"You doit mean to say you had for
gotten it?" asked Parke, in amaze.
"Don't 1 low on me, there's a good
fellow; but, after all my 'bruaks' of yes
terday ge: ting an absent from drill
and into a row at the ranch I declare
it had slipped my memory. No, you go,
Parke; I dc n't deserve to be let off any
thing. aftr yesterday. You've been
sticking to duty like a brick ever since
you joined and Stryker ought to give
you the preference."
"But you re engaged to rido with Mrs.
Belknap." siid Parke.
"Who toll you so?"
"I heard her say so. Dana asked if
he might hi ve the pleasure, just a while
ago, and s io smilingly replied that it
would havi. been delightful, but that
you had asled her four days ago, when
it was first planned."
"So I had; but I've been getting into
scrapes ever since, and I oughtn't to go.
By Jove! I'll write ber a note now and
say I cant f et off. It's true enough. I
wouldn't let such a fellow go if I com
manded the troop. I'd make him stay
in and atten 1 roll call a week."
"Well, Mrs. Belknap expects you,"
said Parke, dubiously. "Not but "what
Dana would be glad to take your place.
Belknap can t go; he's too bulky to ride,
and she'd leave him miles astern first
run we had, sure."
Suddenly Perry bethought him of the
note, and m-tde a dive into the sitting
room, towel in hand and shirt sleeves
rolled to the si bows. It read:
Mo An Ten i tba Spraruea' to dine this

"How can I, man?" shouted Tarke, as

lower tone. "I don't want to be the one
to tell the p- jttiest woman at RmsiUr
that ber noti that she sent here at noon

Perry diet sing was completed at rac
ing speed, bui even then he was buck
ling bis saber belt as the assembly sound
ed, and lie 1m J to go straight across to
where his trotp was forming a glitter
lug rank of yt How plumes and so could
only give a hurried sidelong glance to
ward Belknap s quarters. There was her
bonnie ladysh p pacing up and down the
veranda; and he knew well be would
have to account for his sins. All through
parade his tl oughts were divided be
tween the fair face he had seen at Dun
raven the nigl t before and the dark one
with the long, curving lashes sweeping
those soft, pesichy cheeks and half veil
ing those woiderful, liquid, speaking,
side glancing yes. Ha saw Mrs. Belk

join the group of ladies on the walk,
then return to her slow, graceful languid
promenade up and down her piazza. lie
knew that be laust hasten to her the in
stant the rank of officers dispersed and
make his peace if possible, but as they
marched to the front and saluted the
commanding t.fflcer he signaled that he
had something to say to them all, and,
moving away to the ede of the parade
ground, so thai the troops might not be
detained on tin line, he gathered his offi
cers about him. a silent group under the
little shade treis that bounded the road
way, and took a letter from the breast
of his uniform coat.
"Gentlemen, said be, "this will be

There was a moment of puzzled silence.
The colonel looked quizzically around
upon the circle of bronzed and soldierly
faces under tbe black helmets. Capt.
Stryker's lips were twitching with amuse
ment behind their black fringe of beard.
No one spoke at first; but presently a
deep voiced troop commander gave vent
to bis emotions:
"What a bombastic old crank! Who

"Nothing leyond the vague talk we
heard. Dr. Quin would be more apt to
know what Col. St rat ton agreed to than
we would," answered Belknap.
"I will ask the doctor this evening.
Meantime, knowing no reason why such
a policy of non-intercourse should be ob
served, I shall not recognize it. What is
more, while you will caution your men
to respect Dunraven bounds as they
would other private property, let them
show no hostility to the ranch people
who may have occasion to visit us. The
man who brought this note tells me he
was threatened and abused by some cav

professes to have no knowledge of an
other assault, but we have evidence that

lows on the Dunraven grounds yesterday.
That matter is yet to be settled. Now
one thing more: Troop and company
commanders will cl.welv watch their
men the next few nights; keep a sharp
lookout on the quarters until midnight,
to see that no men slip away; after mid
night the guard must attend to it. There
is an element in the ranks that would be

This must not lw permitted. See to it,
