Mr. Dana, "Ned Perry
fflied oft his feed" for
i a day or two. The hunt
i Y had been pronounced a
big suceetw, despite the fact of Perry'
defection he had not even joined them
at luncheon and it wan agreed that it
should be reiieated the first bright day
after uiuster. That rereuiony came off
on Monday with due poiupand formality
and much rigidity of inspection on the
part of the iot commander. It was
watched with interest by the ladies, and
Mra. Delknnp even proposed that when
the barracks and kitchens were being
visited thev should fro alone, thina had
been her devotee ever since the day of
the hunt, and announced his willingness
to carry her suggestion to the colonel,
but Belknap declined. She wanted a few
words with Perry, and did not know
how to effect her purpo.se. When he
stopped and spoke to her after parade on
Saturday evening and would have made
peace, she thought to complete her ap
parent conquest by a show of womanly
displeasure at his conduct, and an as
surance that, thanks to Mr. Dana, the
day had been delightful and bis failure
to accompany her had been of no conse
quence at all. The utterly unexpected
way in which he took it was simply a
"stunner" to the little lady.
So far from U-ing piqued and jealous
and huffy, as she expected, Mr. Perry
jastiilod the oft expressiKl opinion of her
siHlerliood to the effect that "men were
simply i-.t all comprehension" by
brightening up instantly and expressing
such relief ut her information that for a
moment sh was too dazed to speak. Br
that time he had pleasantly said good
night and vanished; nor had he been
near her since, except to bow and look
pleased when she walked by with Dana.
She never thought of him as an actor
before, but this, said Mrs. Belknap to
herself, looks like consummate acting.
Had she known of or even suspected the
existence of a woman who had interposed
and cast hex into the shade the explana
tion would have occurred to her at once;
but that there was a goddess in the shape
of Gladys Maitland within a day's ride
of Rossiter she never dreamed for an in
stant. Relieving that no other woman
could have unseated Iter. Mrs. Belknap
Mm ply could not account for such utter,
Mich unutterable, complacency on the
part of her lately favored admirer in his
virtual dismissal. All Sunday and Mon
day she looked for signs of sulking or
surrender, but looked in vain.
Perry seemed unusually gravu and
ilent, was Parke's report of the situa
tion; but u hatuver comfort she might
bavednrived from that knowledge was ut
terly destroyed by the way he brightened
up and looked pleased whenever they
chanced to meet. Monday evening be
stopped to Sieak with her on the walk,
holding out his hand and fairly beaming
Upon her; she icily recui ved these demon
strations, but failed to chill them or him.
Then she essayed to tuake him suffer the
pangs of the jilted by clinging to Dana's
arm and smiling up in Dana's face, and
then she suddenly started: "Oh, Mr.
Dana! How could I have been so thought
lessand this is your wounded side!"
Dana protested that her slight weight
was soothing balm, not additional pain,
and Perry promptly asseverated that if
he were Dana be would beg her not to
quit bis arm, and her eyes looked acorn
at him as she said, "How can you know
anything ulwut it, Mr. Perry? You've
never been in action or got a scratch,
while Mr. Iaua" and now the dark
ryes spoke volumes as they looked up
Into those of her escort "Mr. Dana is
one of the heroes of the fighting days of
the regiment. Even that failed to crush
him. while it had the effect of making
Dana feel mawkish and absurd. Perry

Dana was officer of the guard and over
it the fruard house, but nearly all the
other officers were chatting about the
veranda and the gate of the colonel's
quarters. Thither had Capt. Belknap
escorted his pretty wife, and she was,
an usual, the center of an interested
group. Perry came strolliug along after
reporting the result of tattoo roll call to
the adjutant, and Capt. Htryker called
to him and asked some question about
the men on stable guard. Tho orders of
the colonel with regard to watching the
movements of the men after the uight
roll call were being closely observed, and
when the trumpets sounded "taps," a few
moments later, several of the troop com
manders walked away together, and this
left a smaller party. It was just at this
juncture that Mrs. Belknap's sweet voice
was heard addressing the commanding
"Oh, colonel! Ever since Thursday I
have been telling Capt. Belknap about
those lovely albums of yours; and be is
so anxious to see them. Could he have
a look at them to-night?"
"Why, certainly," exclaimed the colo
nel, all heartiness and pleasure. "Com
right in, Belknap, come In any of you
all of you where it's good and light."
And he hospitably held open the screen
door. Perry had seen the albums a dozen
timea, but he was for going in with the
others, when he felt a little band press
ure on his arm, and Mrs. Belknap's
great dark eyes were gazing up into his
with mournful, incredulous apieuL
"IKm't you know I want to see you?"
she murmured so that only he could
And. much bewildered, Mr. Perry
She stood where she could look
through tlie screen door in the purlor be
yond, watching furtively until the rty
were grouped under tlte hanging lamps
and absorbed iu looking over one an
other's shoulders at the famous albums;
then, beckoning to him to follow, she
flitted, like some eerie sprite, on tiptoe
to the southern end of the veranda,
w lie re clustering vines hid her from
view from the walk along the parade.
Perry began to feel queer, as be after
wards expressed it, but he stalked alone
after her, declining to modulate the
thunder of bis heavy heels upon the re
sounding gallery. She put her finger to
be lip,. and, after a nervous glance
around, looked at him warn ingly, Be
seechingly. "Whit on eartbl the matter?" was all
the pwplexed and callow youtlr could
find to say, and in a tone so utterly de
void of romance, sentiment, tenderness
any tldng she wanted to bear that in
all her experience and she had had not
a little pretty, bewitching little Mrs.
Belkna could recall nothing so humil
iating. "liov can you be so unkind to me?"
at last she whispered, in the tragio
tremolc she well knew to be effective; it
bad dot e execution over and again. But
big, handsome Ned Perry looked only
like on J in a maze; then he bent over
her in genuine concern:
"Wh;', Mrs. Belknap! What has hap
pened? What has gone wrong? What
do you nean by unkindnessV"
She faced him, indignantly now: "Is
it poesiMe you profess not to know'"
"By til that's holy, Mrs. Belknap,' I
haven't an idea of what you mean to
charge ine with. Tell me, and I'll make
every a nend I know how."
Ue w is bending over her in genuine
distress and trouble; he had no thought
but to a-wure her of his innocence of any
conscious wrong. She was leaning upon
the balony rail, and he rested one strong
hand iiioii the post at the shaded corner.
above h r head, as he bowed bis own to
catch h r reply.
For a moment she turned her face
away, her bosom heaving, her little
hands ciasping nervously, the picture of
wronged and sorrowing womanhood.
His blunt, ragged Honesty was some
thing sh j had never yet had to deal with.
This indeed was "game worth the
candle," but something of a higher order
than the threadbare flirtations she had
found so palatable heretofore. She had
expectetl him to lie revealed by this time
as the atlmirer who had only been play
ing a pa -t in his apiuirent acceptance of
the situ ition of the last two days; she

with Duna, of neglect, coldness, insult
towards himself; and this she would

before bestowing the final coup de grace.
But instead of it, or anything like it.

It was si nply exaspei-ating. She turned
suddenly upon him, hiding her face in
her hands, almost sobbing:

Even t tat suggestive tentative did not

adequacy of his response:
"Why, so did I!" This was too much.
Down ca ue the hands, and were laid iu

not bar tlie way; she could have slipm-d
from the corner without difticulty, but
the other method was more dramatic
"Lei me go, Mr. Perry," she pleaded.
"I I uiit ht have known; 1 might have

the captain in tones of evident relief.
"It Is far t jo chilly for this young

A cavalry trumpeter came springing

that several men were leaping from their
broad galleries, some just pulling on a
Mouse, others in their shirt sleeves, but
all hastening towards the stables, where
dim lights could be seen flitting about
like will-o'-the-wisps. One of these
troopers came bounding to his aide and
would have passed him in the race. He
recognized the athletic form even in the
darkness and hailed him:

'Those people at the ranch?"
'The very ones, sir. No one else would

to have wound 'em up the one night we
had a chance, sir."
Breathless, almost, they reached the
stables. The horses were all snorting and
plunging about in their stalls, showing
every indication of excitement and
alarm. From the stables of the adjoin
ing companies other men had come with
lanterns, and a group of perhape half a
dozen troox-rs was gathered about the
form of a cavalry sergeant who was seat
ed, limp and exhausted, at the western
doorway. One soldier was bathing his
face with a ionge; the first sergeant of
the troop was bending over and trying
to feel the pulse. .
'Stand back, you men!" he said, au
thoritatively, as he caught sight of the
lieutenant's shoulder straps. "Leave a
lantern here. Now, Owynne, here's

'Nothing but this. sir. 1 was in the

lanterns from the stables next door; but
thev hail not even heard the trouble."
"Where was the stable guard?"
"Inside, sir, and he's there now. He
heard the scuffle, he says, and ran to
give the alarm and to protect the ser
geant, but the men scattered when he
came, and he saw none of them."
"Tell him to come here. Let some of
these men go in and quiet t.he horses.
The captain will be here in a minute,
and he will want to see that stableman.
Who is it?"
By this time Dr. Quin came lumber
ing heavily up the sIoihs to tlie stable
door. His manner was vetv quiet and
very grave as he bent over the injured
man and carefully studied his face by
the light of the sergeaut's lamp. The

G wvnne made no reply for a moment.
then faintly answered:
"Stunned, mainly, and one or two
kicks after I was knocked down."
Then came a deeper voice, quiet but
authoritative, and the group that had
begun to close in again about tho doctor
and his patient fell hack as Capt. Stryker
strode into tlieir midst.
'Sergt. Hosmer, seud all these men of
the troop back to their quarters at once,
and permit no more to come out. Is be

"Somewhat stunned, lie savs I've

were slowly fading back into the dark
ness on their way to the barracks. Only
the diictor, Mr. Perry, and the sergeant
remained by the side of the injured
man. Then came the question:
"Who did this, Gwynne?"
No answer. A deeper shade of pain
and trouble seemed to pass over the
sergeant's face. He made an effort to
speak, hesitated, and at last replied:
"1 cannot say, sir.
"You know, do you not?"
Again pained silence and embarrass
nient. At last the sergeat t leaned slow
ly forward and soke:
"Captain, the men were masked, the
voices disguised. I could not see the
dress in the darkness. I was struck on
the head almost the instant I got outside
the door, and it would be impossible for
me to identify one of them."
Do you think it was the same gang
you had the trouble with at Dunraven?"
"I could not say, sir."
"Do you suspect any of our own men?"
"I would not say that, sir."
"Where is the stable guard?" asked
Stryker. "Send him here."
Ana presently XTooper Kelly a wiry
little Irishman, with a twinkling eye and
an expression of mingled devilment and
imperturbability in bis face came forth
from the stable door and stood attention
'Where were you when this assault
took place, Kelly?"
"At the far et.4 of the stables, sir,'
replied Kelly, with prompt and confl
"Then of course you saw and know
nothing of it,"
"Nl a wor-rad, sir."
"Why dil you let a gang from that
English ranch come here and beat vour
sergeant before your very eyes?"
Keli v reddeued at the very idea.
"I'd ha died first, sir! Sure they'd
niver dared And then Kelly stopped
short. His Celtic pride liad been touch
ed to the quick, and had it not proved
too much for even Irish wit?
"How did they get the sergeant out of
the stable at this hour of the night?"
"Sure they called him out. sir."
"And the sergeant happened to be
down there by the door at the time':
"No. sir; he was in bis room bey ant
up there by the forage,"
"That's a long distance from this door,
Kelly; and if he could hear it in his
room you could bear it farther away."
"I wasn't farther away thin, air; I was
down here when they axed for him."
"Then why didn't you open the door
and see who was making such a racket,
shouting for Sergt. Gwynne after taps?"
"Sure they didu t about at all at all,
sir; they axed for biw quiet and re
spectable like, an I wint and told him,
"Ah, yes, I Bee. And then, having
told liiin, you went away to the far end
of the stable."
"Yis, sir, just so, sir; an' the moment
I heard the scrim midge, sir, I ran as
hard as I could."
"Of course you considered it was none
of your business what people might want
with the stable sergeant at night.
"No, air. If be wanted me be had
right to tell me to come."
"We differ on that point, Kelly. Re
lieve him, Sergt. Iloemer."
On the following morning CoL Brain
ard was surprised to note iu Capt. Stry
ker's column of remarks explanatory of
the alterations from the status of the
"Sergt. Gwynne from daily duty as
stable sergeant to sick iu hospital; Sergt.
Leary from duty to arrest, and Private
