hound were out, and
hII Fort lWsiter "society"
;i with tbein. The day
whs faultleits neither too
nriu nor too i-loudr: a
hrUk westerly bnvze sent
the cloud wluidowH Milling uti'Hililv m ross
tlio broad prairie wa atnl keeiing the
veils unit bkirlsof tho Amazons of the
party a-flutter. Three there were of
these, the rest of the iterhood pre
ferring to follow the hunt by buggy or
buckboard, though frankly expressing
their envy of the fortunate riders.
Mounted on her own spirited little bay,
admirably fitted ns to habit, and sitting
squarely und well. Mrs. Belknap would
have been the renter of oliservation of
all the cavalry orbVers even had she not
been, an she ineontestably was, the
beauty of the garrison. The colonel had
offered Mrs. Lawrence ono of his own
horses, and therefore w:w accorded the
right of being her escort. Mrs. ISprague
was similarly indebted for her '"mount"
to Capt. Stryker: and a very bright and
beaming little body site was as she rode
over the spriiigy turf at the hide of the
dark haired troop leader.
"Hard lines on Perry, isn't it?" said
Mr. Urahani, as he trotted up beside Mr.
Belknap atul took his place for the mo
ment w-itb her lievy of cavaliers. "First
time he ever iiiinseil a hunt, I reckon."
""He needn't have missed this one,"
said Parke. "It was my week, and I
told hiiu to go; and Capt. Stryker said so.
Here Mr. Parke broke otf buddenly and
looked in mild wonderment in lhiua's
face, for that young gentleman had man
aged, uxiseen by Mrs. IV-lkuap, to swing
free bis right foot and give the speaker's
left a vehement kick. Too late, however.
Mrs. Belknap had heard it.
"Are you cavalrymen all so little to le
trusted?" she usked. vv ith a brilliant smile
upon her flusliim face. Exercise and
excitement had lent unusual sparkle to
her eyes anil color to her cheeks "she is
positively beautiful today," as Mr. Law
rence confessed to the colonel at the mo
ment. "I had a note from Mr. Perry this
morning saying he was grievously din-appoiiiti-d,
hut that some troop duty had
been assigned to hiiu which could not be
transferred and he must stay and tiniah
"What he said is true. Mrs. Belknap,"
promptly asseveratcj Mr. Dana. ."The
papers have all to tie in readiness for
muster on Monday, and the saddle kits
put in shaie for inection."
"Only in I 'apt. Stryker's troop?" softly
inquiri-d tin lady, witb eyelids rising in
crvdulously. "No, of course not. One oflicer is
hack at the post from each troop. It
happened to fall on Perry in his."
"I fancy I should prefer serving in
some oldr captain's troop if I were Mr.
Perry. It seems that while your other
captains stay homo and look after their
companies, (..apt. Stryker has a sub
altern attend to his while he comes a-
"On the oilier hand, we fellows have
a dozen things to do in our troops that
Capt. Stryker ds-s himself tu his. It's
broad as it's long, Mrs. Ik'lknap." said
Juna. ll did not fancy her criticising
Urn methods of hi cavalry associate,
and was possibly a little piqued at the
decided annoyance she showed at Perry's
failure to attend. Meantime, Stryker,
all unconscious of her censure, was chat
ting laughingly with Mrs. Sprague and
exchanging shots with the colonel and
Mr. Lawren.-e. The four were cettinir
on admirably togetiier, and seemed too
much alisorbed iu their own fun to note
the fact that Mr. Belknap and her knot
of four or five satellites had been grad
ually edging away toward the right, and
that the rest of the hunt wa? becoming
"It is time we stirred up a jack rabbit
at least." Mid the colonel. "Suppose wa
t-wr oTer toward the northwest a littl.
Whatever wa do. we want no chase down
there toward Duuraven; those wire feuce
would spoil it all."
"I wonder if those people never hunt?"
said Mr. Faruhaiu, w ho had joined the
quartet: he always kept close to his
colonel, a betltted an aspirant for the
adjutancy. "Englishmen are generally
game for all sorts of eport"
"I can e horsemen out there on the
prairie to the east of the runch," said
Stryker, whose eye were keen, "and I
could have worn a moment ago that I
law a horsewoman. "
"Nonsense, Capt. Stryker!" exclaimed
Mrs. Lawrence, yet with a quick glance
at Mrs. Spraguo. "What could you
have taken for a lady -on horseback?
Do you suppose there could be ladies at
Iunraven arid we not know it?"
"Hardly possible," answered the cap
tain, "and therefore I doubted the evi
dence of my senses. Vet something very
like a lady followed by a groom rode
down the elope into the valley about ten
minutes ago. She is out of sight in the
timber now. If pnrry were only with
u I'd send him oil there to see."
"Ye, we miss Perry on our hunts,"
said the colonel to his lady friends.
"He is one of our liest riders and most
enthusiastic sportsiueu. He will be out,
will he not, Stryker?"
"Yes, sir. There is really no neces
sity for his staring in, and I so told him;
but he felt that he 011;: lit to, at least
until certain work was tiuished. Then
he said he could ride eastward und join
us. Hurrah! there they go!"
Far out to the front, straight to the
east, "a gray streak with a white tip to
It" went shooting into space as though
launched from some invisible bow drawn
by giant power. A big jack rabbit, all
legs and ears, had listened quivering and
trembling to the sound of the approach
ing hunt, until an enterprising terrier,
foremost skirmisher of the line, fairly
tumbled over him as he crouched behind
a little bunch of weeds: then with one
mighty lenp and the accompaniment of
a wild yelp from his discoverer he sprang
forth into a race for hi precious life.
"Hoy! hoy!" yells the ergeaiit a he
sights the quarry. "Ilurruh !" shout the
nearest huntsmen, and, with one sunui
taneou impulse, skirmishing curs,
stealthy, springing hounds, eager steeds,
and jubilant rider men and women
away goes the entire Held sweeping in
pursuit. At first all is one mad rush
until it is certain that the rabbit is a
veteran who understands well the maxim
that "a stern chase is a long chase" all
the world over.
Close behind the master of the hounds,
all eyes fixed on thut bounding tuft of
gray and whit a few score yard ahead,
bending over their horses' necks and
keeping just enough pressure on the bit
TKE HOCK ISLAND
to prevent overriding Che huntsman, ride
Parke and Graham, two "light weight,"
who havecoursed many a mile of prairie.
Just behind them, a little to their right,
rides Mrs. Belknap, her veil fluttering
straight out behind, her glorious eyes
flashing, h. r dark skin flushed with tri
umph and :he exhilaration of the dash
ing pace, h r little hand wound about in
the reins si e holds so tirmly. Splendidly
she nit her fleet racer, and Dana has to
urge and spur his clumsier troop horse
to keep in lose attendance. These four
are well in advance of all the others.
Back of tl em, gallantly urging on her
sturdy som l, comes Mrs. Sprague, with
Stryker riding warily alongside and
watching h it "going" before he will sat
isfy himsell that it is safe to trust her to
her own gliding. Level as the prairie
is here, he l.nows that a mile or so ahead
there are "breaks" leading down into
the valley of one of the innumerable
tributaries of the Washita. Then the
story may I e different.
Ho looks up in surprise at the thunder
of hoofs clcse alongside, and Mrs. Law
rence, with excitement in her eyes, over
takes, then glasses them on the way to
ti e front. "See!" he points to his part
ner, "see that dark shadow across the
prairie out tiiere. We cannot ride at this
pace when we pass that hollow; the
breaks set i 1 still farther." He glance
over his shoulder and signals to the near
est officer to follow Mrs. Lawrence and
look out for her, and the gallant does hit
best, but all are at top speed; the colonel
and the he ivy weights infantry and
cavalry are beginning to Kwe ground,
and still that gray "puir ball" far to the
front seems inch by inch to lie slipping
away from his pursuers. Will he keep
his determin d course, up hill and down,
straight a war to the east, or will he lose
heart, tack, veer, double and tmisi? If
he swerve he is a lost rabbit!
Far to the rear, yelping, panting, dis
tracted by this time, the terriers and
mongrels, the original leaders, have fall
en. The field, too, is strung out nearly
a mile deep 1 1 the end of the first six
minutes' run, for some of the laggards
have given u; and are disjiosed to wait
for the coming of the buggies and buck
boards. Her at the front all is tense
excitement. All eyes are on the rabbit,
for now or n iver will the crisis come.
The horses are breathing heavily, but
with no thought of slackening speed.
"Watch him uow as he sights that
arroyo!" shouts Graham to Parke, for
far out to the right front a ravine bursts
off to the southeast, and one of its shal
low contributors stretches obliquely
across the abbit's frenzied vision.
"Veer that vay; he'll take it sure!"
shouts the hm tsraan; and, sure enough,
no sooner doe he reach it than the gray
ictiiu darts d wn the winding bbelrer,
as though hopeful that his sudden twist
would throw 1 is pursuers off the sight;
scent the greyhound has none. The
move is disastrous; "Hi!" shout the lead
ing riders, w.iring the pursuit to the
right front, an i. olstlient to signal, the
foremost houi ds sweep in Ion,- curve
into the coulee, striking it many a yard
farther down than where the harried
chase first di-ed into its treacherous
And now those hounds who were out
on the right fhnk are up in line with the
very leaders, and bounding along the
level at the aid ) of the ravine, yet keep
ing wary eye upon the chase. So, too,
the horsemen. Making a deep curve in
the ravine five mndred yards ahead, and
confident that Bunny will blindly rush
along his winding track, they strike out
across the prai.-ie, gaining twenty horse
lengths by the ciove; and now, with two
or three of the oldest hounds, Parke,
Dana and Mr Belknap are darting on
abreast of the chase. "Keep out there
to the left, some of you!" shouts Dana.
"He'll spring up the other side quick as
he sees us. Drive him back." And.
oliedient to thd signal of his waving
hand, two of tin leading troopers breast
the slopes to the east, calling half a dozen
hounds with trem. Darting around a
bend, Bunny's agonized eyes catch sight
of the hounds t nd horses on the right
bank, and like h flash he whirls, scamp
ers up the opposite slope, and shoots out
on the prairie af ain just in time to meet
the hounds and trooper who have an
ticipated the ino.-e.
Now he is v ild and demoralized.
Once more he di .es into the ravine and
send the dust fl; iug into the very faces
of his pursuers, for now the leading
hounds are so close that the foremost
jaws are suappi lg the air at his every
bound. A quick turn to the right and
up the slope throws these leaders far
too far beyond; they sweep around in
long curve; but, though he has thrown
them off, the hu Ued, senseless, helpless
wretch has forgotten the trailers in the
rear; they spring across the angle he has
made, and are clcse as the original pur
suers, and much the fresher. WUdly,
madly now he t ists and turns, first up
one bank, then the other. Far to the
rear the coming riders see the signs of
bis breaking dow.i, mark the scurrying
to and fro of bores and hound. "Come
on!" they shout. "He's gone now, and
we can be iu at tl e death!" Mrs. Law
rence on one side f the ravine is as far
to the front as Iilrs. Belknap on the
other. One of them must loae the brush;
lie cannot di 01 both aide at ouoa.
The dark beauty I as had more than one
rasping disappointment in the last two
days; it would be intolerable now that,
after all, Mrs. Lawrence, and not she,
should prove the v ictor.
Bunny makes 01 e frantic rush up the
slope to the right, uid, with half a dozen
hounds at his very heels, spins in front
of her eyes, catches sight of two fresh
antagonists frontiig him, whirls sud
denly about to tie right, and almost
dives under her horse's heaving barrel as
he one more plut ges into the ravine,
down the rugged slope, up the gentle
ascent to the other side. There half a
dozen long, lean mizzles gleam close be
hind him; he falters, wavers; a sharp
nose is thrust undo neath him as he runs,
a quick toss sends him kicking, strug
gling into the air, t nd in another instant,
with piteous but ineffectual squeak and
pleading, he is tht center of a tumb
ling, snapping, fan gnashing group of
hounds, and his little life is torn out al
most before Orahai 1 can leap from his
saddle, beat them I ack with the visor of
his cap, then, seizii g the still quivering
body by the leg that would have saved
could that empty head only have direct
ed, holds poor Buni y aloft in front of
Mrs. Lawrence's snorting steed and pro
claims her "Queen of the Chose."
And this, too, has Mrs. Belknap to see
and strive to smile while down in her
heart she knows that it could not so have
happened had Perry come.
