i (if WITHSTANDING the
fact tliat there wan an at
mosphere of suppressed
excitement over llie gar.
V rison this May day inorn
TLo inc. Mr. Belknap's hunt
came off according to f lan, and the three
heroine of the previous run rode forth
with but alight change of escort. Capt.
Stryker fi-lt ronntrained to remain in
pnrrison; he h;id a quiet in ventilation to
make, nud was i.lfcwrved to be in close
conversation ill Dr. luin as the gay
party a.cmllsl in front of Col. Brai
naril's quarter. Mr. Perry appeared in
hi captain's stead, and very politely re
quested the honor of being cort to Mr.
Lawronro, who aoi ted. Tot lokeU a
trifle cinUirnwi-H-J a she did .. Indeed,
not until hlie had stolen an appealing
glance at her husband and heard hU
cordial "By all mean, dear; Perry can
guide you far better than I, and perhaps
you'll win another mask," did sle thank
fully say "Yes." Dana rode with Mr.
Belknap, as before, and it was the colo
nel himself who suggested to Stryker
that Mr. Perry should accompany Mrs.
Lawrence this day, and that he, the
colonel, should ride w ith Mrs. Spraeue.
Perry had eagerly leut himself to the
proposition: he figured that now he could
ha to an uninterrupted chat with Mrs.
Lawrence and hear w hat she had to tell
about Dunraven. Ju"t before Martin?
he sought Oapt. Lawrence, laughingly
told him the terms of their agreement,
and begged that he wuiild n-Lix his
marital injunction and jieraiit her to give
him such details as the happened to be
in possession of. "Indeed, Capt. Law
rence," he said. "I ak from no idle curi
osity. I hav been to the ranch, as you
now know, and have good reason for
asking." To his surprise, the captain
replied siil-stantially that, while he had
regretted Mrs. Lawrence's impulsive rev
elations, he had thought it all over and
decided tliat thn best way out waa that
Perry should be told the whole story and
bo alle to see how very little there was
It it. lie had decided, therefore, to tell
liiui himself; "und this eveuing. l'erry,
if you will diue with us informally, we'll
talk it over afterwards. Meantime. I
prefer Mrs. Lawrence's name should not
be mentioned in connection with any
story there nny be atloat: so oblige uie
by savins nothing to her on tho subject."
Thin was one matter for reflection and
something of a surprise; but there was
fetill another and even greater one. That
very morning, jut before guard mount,
arid while he was dressing. Perry shout
ed, "Come iu," respon-.iv to a knock at
his sitting rooru door, anil in came Capt.
Slrvker. The object of his early call
was explained in very few words.
"Porry," said he, "I liave leeu over to
see Sergt. C! ivy nne this morniug, and the
tloctoT walke 1 bftck from tha hospital
with iue and told Uie of your tlireatened
disagreement of last night. If it had not
been for that sudden call to the stables I
fancy there might have been a quarrel.
Now, I think you know I'm one of the
lat men to let an officer of tuy regiment
especially my troop lio placed in a
false -fit ion, and you ran afford to
leave this matter in my hands, ran you
"Certainly, Capt. Stryker."
"Then I want you to say nothing to
Quia on the subject, and to treat him,
as far as possible, as though nothing had
Imppeiied. His relations w ith the lady's
father and family were, and are, such
that she ought to truat him with respect
and deferemre, and to accept h'i advice
even though it be given iu a style that
Curlyle. his favorite author, is mainly
"There was absolutely nothing in in
that . Well, captain," stammered poor
Ned, "I don't know bow to say what I
want to say." He wanted to say there
was tiotliing in tliat interview which
could (ios&ibly be criticised, but it sud
denly evcurred to Luu that on the con
trary there was a good deal. Then he
desired to assure the captain that, so far
aa be wa concerned, there wasn't a sus
picion of wrong doing; but heavens
and earth! that was equivalent to say
ing the laly was doing all that was open
to remark, and nothing would ever in
duce him to "give away a woman," as
he would have ei pressed it. Perry stam
mered and reddened all the more, and
at lost ftave it up in despair, Stryker
sitting there the while with a quiet frrin
on his bronzed face and mechanically
slashing his boot legs with a riding
"I think I understand the situation.
Perry, aud there's no great barm done.
Only, let tlut matter drop so far as tha
doctor is concerned, I ineau; I do not
presume to obtrude advice upon you as
to anything eh."
And, though he had meditated a dif
fer tut course, and had fully intended
hunting up Dana and seuding him with
a note to call ujhu the doctor for an
"explanation," he was glad to have a
man of Stry Iter's standing cry halt All
the same he was sore incensed agaiast
Dr. Quin mainly because of the jeal
ous pain he suffered at the knowledge of
his being so welcomed by Gladys Mait
land when he saw Tit to visit the ranch;
and this pain gnawed all the more an
grily now at thought of the embar
rassingeven suspicious situation in
which that very man had found him on
the previous evening. Pressing duties
and hurriej preparations kept him from
brooding too much upon these sore
points, but the youngsters all rallied
him upon his preoccupation while at
their merry breakfast table. Fie had re
solved that there was one thing he could
and would bring ts an issue with Dr.
Quin. and was all impatience for the
corning of evening, that lie might bear
from the lips of Capt. Lawrence the act
ual stories that had been in circulation
concerning Dunraven Ilanch. lie never
went out to a hunt so utterly indifferent
to the fortunes of tho day. so eager to
have it all over and done with. And
yet and yet never had there opened
to lii in a day so radiant w ith glorious
possibility; never before in all bis young
life had nightfall proved so unwelcome
when it finally came.
The j-st rabbit was started before they
were a mile from Rosaiter.and the hounds
tumbled over him nearly a league away
down tbe valley of the Monee. It was
while tliey were watering their bornes in
the stream that Mrs. Belknap rode up be
side theto and laughingly addressed Mrs.
"That was too much of a straight a wa
for either of us, Mrs. Lawrence; but what
wager shall we have on th first mask
after thih?" """"V-
- Why, Mrs. Briknapl I can nerer hope
to rival yoi. It was mere accident and j
good gui liug on the part of some of the
officers vlu were kind enough to stay by
me, that enabled me to be 'in at the death'
the otbei day.
"You 1 iave Mr. Perry to lead you today.
Surely w ith such a guide yon ought to be
inspired. Am I to see anything of you
today?" the almost whispered to him, as
her stimip brushed his riding boot.
"Certainly," he answered, quietly, and
looking her over with frank blue eyes
that wem rather too clear and calm for
her mood. "If Mrs. Lawrence will ex
cuse me a few moments by and by, it
will be a pleasure to come and ride with
you. I'L ask her."
"Indeed you shall not," was the low
toned reply, while the dark eyes fairly
snapped with indignation. "I do not
borrow other women's escort. If jou
know no other way that ends it."
And then Mrs. Sprague's cheery voice
had haik d them as her eager horse came
splashing into the stream; no opportunity
occurred for further Impressive remarks,
but as the "field" rode out upon the
prairie atrain and the dogs spread their
yelping tkirmish line along the front,
Mrs. Bell. nap felt confident that before
they returned to Rossiter she would have
her big, liuiple hearted admirer iu some
shape for discipline. Two capital runs
added to her self satisfaction, for in one
ofthcuidie was side by side with the
foremost rider at the finish, and in both
she hail I -ft the other women far in rear.
Then eau.e a third, and with it a revela
tion to or e and all.
It was almost noon, and from a point
well out -n the prairie to the northeast
of Dunnven the "field" was hunting
slowly huneward. horses and hounds
pretty w?ll tired out, and the riders
quite con ent with their morning's sport.
Up to th s time Perry had been in con
stant attendance upon Mrs. Lawrence,
and had i Jade no effort to join Mrs. Bel
knap. N w, however, he could not but
see that every little while her eyes
sought h s with significant glance and
that she 'as riding well out to the left
of the l.rty, Dana faithfully hovering
about hir. The colonel with Mrs.
Sprague ranged alongside just then, and
a general conversation ensued, in the
course of which Perry found himself a
trifle in tl e way. If there was one thing
fastidious Nolan did not like, it was to
be crowd d by horses for whom he had
no partici lar respect; and, as a number
of riders were grouped aliout Mrs. Law
rence at the moment, it resulted that
Nolan's te th and heels began to make
play, and Perry laughingly resigned his
position a : her side, iu order, as he ex.
pressed it, "to give you other fellows a
-liance." Fven then, as he fell to the
n-ar. it w as with no thought or inten
tion of joi iuu Mrs. Belknap. But, once
clear of li e merry group, his eyes sought
the distau: outlines of Dunraven Ranch,
glaring ir the noonday sun beyond the
Monee, and between him and that mys
terious ir closure whither his thoughts
were so constantly wandering there rode
the dainty lady, the Queen of the Chase,
so far as that dav was concerned at
least, and ihe was signaling to him with
her ridii-K whip. Oddly enough, when
Perry rodj up to obey her summons,
Mr. Dana presently found means to ex
cuse himst If and join the main body.
"Mr. Pe -rv," she said, as soon as Dona
was out of hearing, "Mrs. Patre will be
with us to night, or to-morrow morning
"Will she?" answered he, unconscious,
forgetful, i.nd with aa air of pleased an
ticipation. "How pleasant for you! I'll
come aud jay my respects the very first
"You do not understand," was the re
proachful i espouse. "You do not care.
I presume; but this means that you and
I will have tut more long talks and hap
py times t gether."
"I'm awfully sorrv, Mrs. Belituap,
but I'm b'essej if I can see whv we
"No," despairingly, "it is plain enough
that you s e nothing. Ah, well! and
the sigh w:s pathetic-profound, and the
look from the dark eyes was unuttera
ble in its sadness, "I suppose it is better
so oetter so. ftiie was silent a mo
ment, and Perry's puzzled faculties took
refuge in a long look over toward Dun
raven nair : he fancied he saw figures
moving dorr-n the slope on the southern
"One thing I want you to promise
me." she resently said, sad and soft
and low. j here was no reply. Looking
up, she saw his head was averted. Waa
he feeling t te sting, then, after all? Was
he actually suffering a little pang after
this affectation of nonchalance?
"One tlutg you must promise, for my
axe, she repeated.
And still no answer came. How odd
lie was bet ding over in tbe saddle as

his face f roi i her and from them alL He

and was apparently fumbling at the
breast of hi riding coat with the left.
Waa It the handkerchief he needed?
Were there starting tears in those blue
eyes that he dared not let her see? She
could not lose that luxury! Out went
tha little hard and touched his arm. Her
tone was swoet, thrilling, appealing, yet
commanding; she would see his face.
"Mr. Perr Ned! Look at me."
"Eh! oh! What! I beg your pardon.
Vra. Balkna;), but I was trying to make
out who thai, waa la tbe timber yonder.
Looks look almost like a woman on
horseback, doesn't it?"
But when be appealed to her for con
firmation of his timid, half credulous
vision he was aghast at the look in her

an began, u :r white teeth set, her soft
lips livid with wrath; but she suddenly
controlled herself none too soon, for
Dana came t-otting up.
"Say, Perry, what do you make that
out to be down there in the valley? CoL
Brainard sue I feel sure it's a lady on
And, looki ig at Perry, Mrs. Belknap
saw iuai ue a J tuned to tbe very tem
plesthat aii eager, joyous light had
sprung to his eyes; but before she could
say a word tiiere came a about from the
huntsman, a yell from the leading line, a
simultaneous yelp from the curs aud
mongrels strong the "irregulars," and
her horse )eaj-d at the bit and went tear
ing off toward the Monee, foremost in
mad pursuit i f a wild careering "jack."
"Come!" she called", as she glanced
over her shoulder; but the sight was oue
that only add d to her wrath. Nolan,
plunging and snorting, was held to the
spot, while hi rider, sitting like a cen
taur, was still eagerly gazing over into
the distant ci tton woods. The next in
stant she real; zed that all the field were
thundering at her heels, and the instinct
of the sportanan came to her aid. She
could not be I eaten in the chase.
For half a a ile Bunny shot like a streak
of light straij ht away southwestward,
the hounds bunched in a slaty, sweeping
cloud not t hirt y yards behind the bobbing
tutt of his U il Then he began a long
circle towards the stream, as though to
head for a "bleak" that extended some
rods bark froir the line of bluffs. Another
uiiuute and ht had reached its partial
shelter and darted in. For the next min
ute he was loe . to sight of his human
pursuers, but tn-enently dashed into view
again down i:i the creek bottom and
"streaking it" up aloug the northern
bank, with the whole park at his heels.
The bluffs wer steep just here, some of
tbe riders a trifle timid, and all the
"field" reined n a little as they mad
tlie descent; Dina, Mrs. Belknap, Parke,
Mrs. Lawrence, Graham, the colonel and
Mrs. Sprague straightened out for their
pursuit in .tbe order named, the instant
they reached tiie level of the valley. The
bounds wee fir ahead by this time, and
the two Ihfit toopers in charge of them
close at thr hiels; but who what was
tha figure tlt flashed into view between
tboMhuntamS and the field, dating Ilka
arrow from the fringe of willows' and
dashing straight in wake of the quarry?
Thirty yards ahead of the foremost ridert
of tire Roesiter party a superb English
hunter, the bit in his teeth, his eyes afire
and his head high in air, fresh, vigorous,
raging with long imprisoned passion for
the sport of the old island home, gaining
on the hounds at every stride, and defy
ing the utmost efforts of his rider, leaped
from the covert of the timber into sight
of one and all, bearing a lovely but most
reluctant victim on his back.
In Tain with might and main she
leaned back and tugged at the reins:
though checked in his speed, the horse
till tore ahead, keeping straight for the
hounds, leaping in his easy stride every
little gully or "branch" that crossed liis
path. Bunny took a sudden dive into
the timber, fairly flew across a narrow,
gravelly rapid, and darted up on the op
posite bank; the hounds veered in pur
suit, the huntsmen wavered aud sought
along the bank for a better place to cross,
but the mettlesome English bay lunged
through in the very wake of the hounds,
crumbling the sandy banks and crashing
through the pebbly stream bed. Out on
the southern slopes went Bunny, close
followed by the hounds; out on their trail
went the big hunter, but bis rider's hat
has leen brushed - away in the wild dash
through the timber, and now a flame of
beautiful golden hair a great w-ave of
light flies on the w ind over his glossy
back, and, though she still leans over the
cantle tugging hard at the reins, she is
plainly losing strength. Some -of tbe
KosMter party burst through the timber
in pursuit; some still ride hopefully up
the north hank, and these are rewarded,
for once again poor, badgered, bewil
dered Bvnny makes a sudden swerve,
and, throwing half the hounds far be
hind, darts a second time to the shelter
of the banks, with the other half closer
at his heels than before.
Tliose who were watching see the big
hunter making a long, circular sweep,
then once again bring up in the wake of
the leaders, once more go leaping, plung
ing, crashing through the stream, and,
in another luinut-, rabbit, hounds,
huntsmen, the ticid," and the fair in
cognita are all etruti out in chase along
the northern shore, and all eyes can sec
that siie is an Lnlish girl and well uigh
exhausted. Still, no man can catch that
hunter and lay hands on the rein. She
is riding w ith the foremost now, leading
the troopers, even, and still Bunny 6pins
along in front, the hounds gnashing not
six feet behind him. A little point of
bluff juts out just ahead; the stream
winds round its base aud takes a turn
northward f-r a dozen rods. Bunny
shitots the turn like the pilot of the
lightning express, the hounds strain to
make it without loss of vantage gained,
the bi hunter sways outward to the
very vere of the steep and crumbling
bank, and a croan pies up from the
breathless pursuers; hut he rallies and
, straightens once more iu the track, and
the golden hair, streaming, in advance,
is the oriilainnie of the chase. Then as
they round the point Dana gives a shout
of joy. Srrai,;ht down the slopes,
straight and swift as rode the daring
huzzar from whom he got his name,
when he Ure the fatal message like
arrow flight from the Sapi.une crest at
itaUklava. down the bluffs to the right
front CVUJI-S Nolan, with Nod Perry on
his back Perry, with set, resolute, yet
almost frenziisl face Perrv with eves
that tl.is'i blue lire in the intensity of
their fc:i.e, and Nolan's virorous stride
have nrought him in circling sweep, in
just ten mvonds more, close to the hun
ter's quarter, close behind the fluttering
Just ahead there is another sudden
turu to the left; the t-treatn goes one
way, the bluffs another, and between
them lies a five-acre patch of level prairie
thii kl y stuiiiietl, here, there, everywhere,
w ith tmy earthen mounds and tiny, gap
ing, treacherous holes a prairie dog
village, by nil thill's awful! and that
runaway hunter, mad iu the chase of
the sweeping hounds, is in the midst of
it before mortal hand can check or
swerve him. Another second, and they
who purue have veered to right or left
or reined up on tbe verge all save one.
Never faltering. Nisi Perry is at her
hunters quarter, almost at her side.
They see him spurring, they see hint
bending eagerly towards her, they soe
.lliat he is shouting something to her
Heaven knows what! Then there is a
groan of misery and dread from a dozen
breasts, a proan that as suddenly bursts
into the ejuddest of diners; the hunter's
forefoot lias caught in one of the thou
sand little death tras; down he goes,
plunging, heaving, quivering, rolling
over anU over; but rsolan leaps gallantlv
ahead, and Ned Perry's strong arm has
lifted the girl from tbe saddle as her
steed f es crashing to earth, and bears
her, drooping, faint, frighteued, well
nigh senseless, but safe and clasped
tight to his thankful and exulrant heart.
Another instant, and Nolan is reined
in in the very midst of the tumbling
oounas, and Uladys Maitland is the only
woman "in at the death.
