aw.-lf denial of the morn-
Infr.NedPprryn-aniied thedistatit prairie
in attarch of the hunt. It was nearly luu
cheon time, and he expected to find the
party making ita way to the little stream
whither the bafiketa, boxes and hampers
had been dispatched by wafron soma
hours before; tmt when he sighted the
quartermaster driving homeward in his
buggy he learned from that bulky vet
eran that rabbit after rabbit had been
run, and that the whole party bad finally
decided to give dogs anil horses a cool
drink down in the Monee valley before
starting northward acrum the prairie.
"They munt be getting down into the
valley two or three miles east of the
ranch just about now, and will go due
north from there, tinlexs they stir up
more game along the Monee. If I were
you," said the quartermaster, "I'd ride
over to the lunch stand. You won't get
there much before the crowd."
Perry thanked him for the information,
but, so far from accepting hia advice,
the young ofUcer turned his horse's head
in the direction of Dunraven, and was
speedily riding thither with an alacrity
that ha himself could hardly explain.
In hia brief talk with the colonol after
parade on the previous evening Perry
had told him what he could of the char
acteristics of Messrs. Maitland and Ewen.
The odd letter which had been sent by
them had given the comrnnnding officer
cause for much thought, and he was de
sirous, evidently, of gathering from
Perry's observations as complete an idea
as was possible of their life and surround
Ings. And still ferry had found it im
ponail'le to volunteer any description of
Miss Maitland; he con Id not beartospeak
of her until until he knew more of the
doctor's purpose in his visits to the ranch.
He had been detained by his commander
UHt long enough to make it oeieeaary
for him to go direct to the Spragues'
without leaving his helmet and saber at
home. They were waiting dinner for
btra as ft was, but Mrs. Belknap took no
Dote of that circumstance; what she saw
was that he had avoided evon passing
within hail of her piazza both before and
Now, though conscious of no inteution
of avoidance. Perry rode forth to the
meeting of this day with some little njii
giving. In the first place, he knew that
he must strive to make his peace with
this slighted lady; and yet, in view of
all he had seen and heard in the past
forty-eight hours, how utterly dwarfed
Imd that affair his laughing flirtation
with Mrs. Belknap become! Had any
041 a told him his attentions to her and
her marked preference for his society
were matters that people were beginning
to talk of some with sly enjoyment,
others with geuuine regret he would
have been grateful for the information,
instead of resentful, as, with most men,
would be the cae ninety-nine times out
of a hundred. But he knew nothing of
this, and had too little experience tosus
ect the comments in circulation. She
was moat interesting up to the day be
fore yesterday; he loved to rideor dance
with her; he enjoyed a chat with her
more than he could tell. A most sym
pathetic and attentive liitetier was Mrs.
Belknap, and her voice was low and
sweet and full of subtly caressing tones.
6 he bad made him talk to her by the
hour of his home, his hopes and ambi
tions, his profession and his prospects,
and had held him in a silken bondage
that he had rra desire to escape.
And yet, as he rode out on the breezy
plain this brilliant day, he found all
thought of her distasteful, and his eyes,
far from searching for the flutter of her
trim habit in the distant riding party,
would go k-roaming over the intervening
thadea and shallows down in the Monee
valley and aeck the bare, brown walla of
Dunraven far acroaa the atream. It waa
odd indeed tliat he should have sought
this, the longest way round, on his ride
In quest of his companions from the
Once again he looked at the isolated
clump of buildings from his post of ob
servation on the bluff; once again he
saw across the stream and through the
trees the barbed barrier that had caused
both him and his men such laceration of
flesh and temper; once again he saw the
shallow valley winding away to the
southeast, decked with its scrubby
fringe work of cotton wood and willow;
but this time, three miles away, Its ac
customed solitude was broken by groups
of riders and darting black specks of
dogs, all moving northward once more
and already breasting the slopes. He
should have turned away eastward and
ridden across country to join them, but
down here in the valley, only a short
distance away, absorbed in watching
the hunting party, sat Mr. Ewen on a
pawing and excited bay. Whatever
coolness his rider might feel at this dis
covery, it was not shared by Nolan; he
pricked up his ears and hailed his fal
low quadruped with cordial and unaf
fected pleasure, a neigh that the English
bred horse was so utterly usinsular as to
whirl about and answer with corre
sponding warmth. Ewen caught at hia
heavy Derby and jarked it off his bullet
head with an air of mingled embarrass
ment and civility, replacing it with
similarly spasmodic! haste. Perry coolly,
but with a certain easy grace, raised hia
forage cap in response to the salutation,
and then, seeing the manager still look
ing at him as though he wanted to say
something and did not know how to be
gin, gave Nolan his head and rode down
to short hailing distance.
"We meet on neutral ground out here,
Mr. Ewen. I suppose your exclusive
employer over yonder can hardly pro
hibit your answering civil inquiries after
hia health?" And, though he meant to
be-dlstunt, Perry found himself smiling
at the oddity of the situation.
"Do you know, I was just thinking
about you," answered Ewen, "and won
dering whetlter you were with that party
down yondet? The old gentleman is
better, thauks. He had two pretty bad
uighta, but is coming around slowly."
"And Miss Maitland bow is she?"
"Rather seedy. She has had a good
deal of care and vexation of late, I fancy,
and this is no place for a young girL
"Well, you have some appreciation of
the true character of Dunraven as a resi
dence, after alir answerry Perry. "Now,
if you can give me any good reason why
she should live In this utterly out-of-the-way
place, you will lift a weight from

T'0n. they dont live here, you know,"
spoke Ewi n, hurriedly. "She comes
here only -vhen her father does. I is
her own coing. She goes with him
everywhere and will not leave him.
She's all he has, don't yon know?"
1 dont know anything about it.
Yon Dunriven people seem avers to
any expretaion of interest or courtesy
from your fellowmen, but In free to
say I shoull like to know what on earth
there is hi American cavalrymen to
make them such) objects of aversion to
your master; and I would be glad to
know how it is such a girl as that is
dragged into such a hole as yonder."
Ewen sat in silence a moment, study
ing the youag fellow's face.
"You desire a better welcome there,"
he presently answered, "and I don't
know that 1 can do better than to tell
you the tru h what I know of it. And
let me tell you that If the old man knew
of my speaking of it to any one, I'd lose
the most lucrative but least attractive
place I ever had. Do you see?"
"Then pe -haps you had better not tell
me. 1 do not care to pry into secrets."
"On, tins is no secret It was that that
drove him I ere; everybody knew it in
England. You were mighty shabbily
treated at ti e ranch, and you requited it
by preventi ig what would have been a
bloody row, and by lending us a helping
hand. Evet the old roan recognises
that; and 1 hink he'd be glad to say so
to you, and see you. If you were not just
what you aie a cavalry officer."
"Why, what on earth can we have
done? If ai y of our cloth have wronged
Mr. Maitlau 1 in auy way, it is our right
to know it and take it up."
"It wasn't your cloth, old fellow."
said Ewen, i hawing visibly, "but it was
the cavalry ill the same that broke his
heart and Us pride, and made his life
the wreck it is, and drove hia: from his
home, shunning the sight of his fellow
men, all theie years exiling her, too, in
the prime oi her young life. Mr. Perry,
there are 0'ily three or four of us at
Dunraven v.'ho know the story, but we
have only sympathy and pity no blame
for him, though he is the hardest
master I ev r served."
"How did it happen?" asked Perry.
"All through his son. There had been
more of thm, but there was only the
one Archie when the Lancers were
ordered to South Africa. He was a
youngster, nly 17, they tell me, and he
had just been gazetted to his cornetcy.

and all ready to fall down and worship

be refused, and ordered them to bivouac
where they were for the night, and in
tbe morning ht had disappeared. They
declared they si: pposed he had gone back
to camp, aud after waiting a day they
returned, reporting him lost.
"When found at the kraal he was de
lirious with fever, or pretended to be,
said tbe genera , and ha was brought in
under arrest and the trial was to pro
ceed. 1 don t c now how it turned out.
He was not court martioled, but permit
ted to return to England. It was said he
told a very different story; that he had
begged the brif ade major who detailed
the escort to let him have half a dozen
of his own Lan ra Instead of the pack
of irregulars th ay gave him; he did not
trust them, and feared they would aban
don him as they had the prince; -but th
staff officer sat 1 the order couldn't be
changed these men knew th country
and all that sort or thing, you know; and
there was on fallow in th Lan cars who
stuck to it that 1 believed Maitland had
tried his best to ret through alone. But
'twas all uselesi; somebody had to be
held responsible, and th failure was all
heaped on him.
"Meantime, t ier had been fury at
home; old Marti tnd had written casting
him off, repudi iting -cursing him (or
all I know anx. the next thing there

his ship at South ampton. They brought

him a long leter, that th old man
never read to an- living soul, but broods
over to this day. Th young fellow bad

after she weighed anchor no one aboard

in his state room as she cleared the har- 1

thing about his belongings was found In

of th ship, th portmanteaus, watch,
ring, clothing, etc., just as he described
in that letter and h was no more seen.
It was the conviction of all that he must
have leaped overboard in the darkness
when far out at sea.
Then Mrs. Maitland bowed her head
and never lifted it again. Then, all
alone, and fiercely rejecting anything
like sympathy, old Maitland took to
travel came here to America, wandered
around the world, shunning men as he
would these prairie wolves; and when
he had to go to England he would see no
one but the attorneys and solicitors with
whom he had business. Here at Dun
raven he is more content than anywhere.
because he is farther from the world.
Uere Gladys is queen: twos she who
named it, two years ago, for her mother
was a connection of the earls. But
Maitland even here hates to have his
name mentioned; and that is why I say
he refers all business to me and keeps
himself out of everything. Do you see
w hat a weijrht he carries?
Mr. Ewen had grown red with the in
tensity and rapidity of his talk. He re
moved Ins hat and mopped his face and
brow with a bi silk handkerchief, and
then trlnnced again at Perry, who had
listened with absorbed interest and who
was now silently thinking it over, look
ing curioiinlv at Ewen the while.
"Have 1 bored you half to death?"
asked the EnglhJiiuan, somewhat rue
fully. "I never told that story before.
but it lias been smoldering for years."
"Bored? No! I never was more inter
ested in my life. I was thinking what a
different sort of fellow you were from
the man I met out yonder the other day.
Did they never do anything to clear the
matter up? In our country it never
would have been allowed to rest there."
"It was t.x far gone; and when
the boy killed himself the thing was
used by all the government papers
you'd call tlieru 'administration organs'
as a confession of judgment. When
the Lancers came home there was some
talk, but it was soon hushed. Maitland
had 6hut up the old place by that time
and gone no one knew where, but I read
it io one of the London papers Truth, I
think a story that two of the irregulars
had quarreled with their fellows and
after tbe war was over told a tale that
made a sensation in Cape Colony. They
said that the young officer was a ma
ligned man; that up to midnight he had
pushed on, but every scout and patrol
they met warned them that thousands
of Zulus were ahead, and that it was
madness to try. The men began whis
pering among themselves, and begged
the sergeant to attempt to dissuade the
Lancer officer; and he did, and they all
began to talk, but he refused to listen.
"At last they halted at a little stream
and flatly refused to go a step further,
He ordered, begged and implored. He
promised hevy reward to any one of
their number who would come and show
him the way. Then they heard the night
cries or signals of some war parties across
the fields, and the sergeant and most of
the men put spurs to their horses; the
others followed, and they rode back five
miles until they were within our patrolled
lines; theu they bivouacked, supposing,
of course, the laucer had followed them,
But he hadn't: he never joined them all
next day, aud likely as not he had done
hia best to get through that strange
country by night alone, and had tried to
carry his dispatches to the detachment.
They knew they must tell a straight
story or be severely punished. They
were twelve against one when it came to
evidence, as the sergeant pointed out
and so they agreed on the one that sent
him to Coventry.
"Some of the Lanoer officers irot hold
of this and swore they believed it true;
but meantime, the government had had
the devil's own time in tiding his lord
ship the gemtral over the numerous
blunders he had mald in the campaign.
and the Lancers were summarily or
dered off elsewhere. There waa no one
left to take up poor Archie's cause at
homo, and the thing died out."
"By the Lord Harry, Mr. Ewen, it
wouldn't die out here! We Yankees
would rt-surrect such a thing if it were
old as a mummy.
"Sometimes I think old Maitland
would bn glad of the chance to do it.
even broken as he is; sometimes, Mrs.
Cowan says, ha walks the floor all night
and holds Archie's last letter in his
hands. She thinks he charges himself
with having driven the boy to suicide."
"Does Miss Maitland never revuit the
old home?" asked Perry, after a mo
"She giea with her father everr
where, lie is never here more than twice
a year, and seldom for more tlian six
weeks at a time. Were it not for her, ha
would settle down here, I believe. He
went to Cape Colony and tried to find
the men who gave out that story, but
one of them was dead and the other had
utterly disappeared. There were still
aix survivors of that eacort, the sergeant
among them, and ha waa a man of eotne
position and property. They stuck to
the onjrinul story, and said the two men
who had started the sensation were mere
blackmailing vagrants. Maitland ad
vertised everywhere for the missing man.
but to no purpose. I think he and Miss
Gladys have finally abandoned all hope
of ever righting Archie's name. She was
only a child when it all happened, but
site worshiped him, and never for an
instant has beliaved tba story of hia hav
ing funked. She's out here riding some
where tliis inornuig, by the way.
"Who! Miss Maitlandr exclaimed
Perry, with a sudden start and a flash of
eager light in hia blue eyes.
Ewen smiled quietly as he answered.
"Yea She needed exercise and wanted
io come down to th gat and meet Dr.
(uin. She went on up tbe valley, and
I won ier she is not back."
Tbe bright light faded quickly as it
came; tbe glad blue eyes clouded heavi
ly. Ewen looked at the young soldier,
surprise in his florid face; surprise that
quickly deepened into concern, for Perry
turned suddenly away, as though look
ing for his comrades of tbe hunt.
"I think they're coming now," said
the manager, peering up the valley un
der the shading willows. "Yea. Wont
you stop a bit?"
"Not now," waa tbe hurried reply.
"Thank you for that story; it has gives
me a lot to think about IU see you
again." The last words were almost
shouted back, for, urged by sudden dig
of the spur, Nolan indignantly lashed
his heels, then rushed in wrathful gallop
towards the eastern bluffs. It was no
willful pang his rider had inflicted on hia
pet and comrade; it was only the invol
untary transmission of th shock to his
own young hearta cruel, jealous sub,
that came with those thoughtless words,
"She wanted to com down to th gat
and meet Dr. Quin. and went on up th
valley." He would not even look back
and see her riding by that man's side.
