arm, Mis M;iitl:irnl sti.rels leaning heav

moment, partly from exhaustion, partly
from pain, for there was no time to free
her foot from the stirrup. nnJ the ankle
is severely wrenelietl. Nolan, riderless
now am) cast loose, stands with lowered
head ntnl heating flunks, a sympathetic
hut prninlly heroic looker on; he know
he hat plavttl his part in that rescue.
The huge IaiKhsli hunter is tilunxing in
misery among the mounds a few yard

nel, as lie trots carefully up, casting a
glance at the fallen cause of all the mis
chief, "but if that saddle had 1-een one
of those three pronged abominations he
couldn't have swept her off as he did."
Graham has galloped to the stream
for water, and the colonel lifts Mrs.
Sprague from her saddle, and together
they iidvaneu to offer sympathy and uid.
Mrs. Ijawrence follows as pilekly us she
can pick her way among the prairie dog
holes. 1:.ii:i has deserted Mrs. Itelknap,
and sho alone remains mounted while
all these others throng about the two
who stand there for the moment, cling
in to each other. And now (iludya
Muilland has raised her head: blushes
of shame and confusion triumph over
pallur and pain; she strives to stand
alone, but l'ony bids her desist. The
moment she sees Mrs. Sprauu's sweet,
womanly, sympathetic face her eyes are
filled ith comfort and her heart goes
out to her. Most reluctantly l'erry re
sign his prize to the anus that ojH'n to
receive her, and then come the wonder
ing exi'lamatioiis of some, and the brief,
"Don't try to talk yet," pleads Mrs.
Sprague. "We are ytily too glad it vai
'"Indeed, I'm not hurt," answers Gla
dys, bravely "only a little wrench,
but," and sho lauchs nervously, trying
to carry it off with all th piuck and
spirit of her race, "it would have been
what we call a 'nasty cropper' at home
if and her eyes turn shyly yet with a
world of gratitude to his "it had not
been for Mr. l'erry. "
"Oh, theu yon know Mr. Perry!" ex
claims Mrs. Sprague, with frank delight,
and Mrs. Lau rence turns iu rejoicing to
look first in his plowing faco, then at the
dark beauty of Mrs. lielkuap silently lis
tening. " Why, we had no idea" And
she ecmi-lii'li-s irresolutely.
"Oh, yes; we met at the ranch at
home. I aiu Miss Maitlund, you know;
and that in my father's pluee. Hut we've
only just come," she adds, with the wo
man's natural desire to explain to new
found friends why und how it was that
they hail not met before. And then the
group is joined by a bulky young Briton
in the garb of a groom, though modified
to suit the requirements of frontier life;
he comes cuntering to the scene all el
bows and consternation; he gives a groan
of dismay at siht of the prostrate hun
ter, but rides directly to his mistress.
She is paling aain now, and in evident
pain, and Perry's face is a study as be
stands, his eyes riveted upon her; but she
tries to smile and reassure him.
"You'll have to ride to Ininr to the
ranch, Griggs." Mho said; "and there's
no help for it papa w ill have to be told.
Let theu seud for me."
"Pardon nie. Miss Maitland," inter
rupted Col. liraiuard. "You are almost
under the walls of Port Roasiter, and
bunrnven is miles away. I have sent
swift horsn for Lr. yuin and a spring
umbulani'e. We cunuot let you go home,
now that you are so near us, until you
have tmd rsit mod proper rare."
"Indeed we cannot. Miss Maitland,"
ctuuieU iu both ladle at a breath. "You
are to come rljlit to my house until you
are lit to travel."
"I'm not very (it just now. certainly,"
the answers, with a faint smile; "but I
can surely wait here until they send;
'twill not bo more than an hour at most."
"It will be two hours perhaps three
Miss Maitland." pleaded Perry, bending
eagerly lorwarrt. "Uo listen to our lit
And "our ladies" prevailed. While
Griggs w ent sputtering oil to Lnmraven
Willi the sorrowful news, the strong
arms or l'erry and Uruliaiu lifted and
bore their English captive to the shade
or a clump of cottouwoods. Mrs.
Sprague ami Mrs. Lawrence managed
to make a little t ouch for her as a tem
porary resort. Mr. Belknap rode up
and was formally introduced, then gal
loped away to Ilossiter to send blanket
for the picnic couch and see to the pil
lows of the ambulance. The colonel and
Perry remained with the ladies and en
grossed their attention while Graham
went back and sent two pistol bullets
into tho struggling hunter brain, etUl
ing Lis pain forever. Then came Dr.
Quin galloping like tho wind down the
familiar trail, chiding "Gladys" ae
though his right to do so were a long
established thing, and thereby setting
Perry's teeth on edge, and. long before
the call fur afternoon stables vas sound
ing, the fair daughter of Dunraven
Ranch was housed within the walls of
Rossiter and the "ice was broken."
Perry had had the joy of helping carry
her into Mrs. Hprague's coolest and co
liest rxiu. She had held forth her hand
such a long, white, beautiful hand
and let it rest in his while she aaid.
"You know how impossible it M'for me
to tell you how I thank you, Mr. Perry,"
and he hud simply bowed over it, long
ing to t-ay wnat he thought, but power
lei,s to think of anything else; and then
he hud gone to his own quarters and
shut himself in. Mrs. Sprague bless
her! had invited him to call after re
treat, and he had totally forgotten the
Lawrences dinner when he said be
would be only too glad to come.
At the sounding of stable call his dark v
servant banged at the door and roused
him from his reverie. He rose mechan
ically and went out Into the broad sun
shine, glancing first along the row to
see how things were looking at the
Spragues' and wishing with all his heart
that they were somewhere within reach
of a conservatory, that he might send a
heaping bos of fresh and dewy rosea to
that sacred room where she lav. How
many a time, he thought, had he strolled
into 'some otlorous shop in the cities
where his "leaves" were spent, and care
lessly rdered cut flowers by the cubic
foot se it with his card to some one with
whom he had danced the german the
night 1-efore and never expected to see
again! What wouldn't he give now for
just a few of those wasted, faded, for
gotten flowers! Stables that afternoon
proved a sore trial to him.
When at last the men went swinging
home ard in their white canvas frocks
and Perry could return to hisquarters to
dress f r his eagerly anticipated call, the
first thing that met his eyes as he came
In sigh- of officers' row was a huge, bulky,
covered traveling carriage in front of
Spragt es Two or three ladies were there
at the ijnte. Mr. Ewen, the English man
ager, vas just mounting his horse; Dr.
Quin, too, was there and already in sad
dle; ar d before poor Perry could get half
way at ross the parade, and just as the
trumpets were sounding mess call for
supper, the bulky vehicle started; the
ladies waved their handkerchiefs and
kissed heir bauds, and, escorted by Ewen
and tho doctor, saluted by Col. Brainard
and tho adjutant with raised foragecaps,
Gladys Maitland was driven slowly away,
and Mis. Belknap stood there in the little
group of hulies smiling sweetly upon him
as he hastened towards them. For many
a long lay afterwards mess call always
made I iin think of Mrs. Belknap's smile,
and Mis. Belknap's smile of mess call
lie shuddered at the sound of one or siijlit
ef the other.
It wi.s Mrs. Sprague who stepped for
ward to greet him, her womanly heart
filled ith sympathy for the sentiment
sheaiispected. She had to push by Mrs
Belknap to reach him; but, this time, no
considi ration of etiquette stood in the
"It i-ouldu't be lielpeil," she said, in
low hu:-ried tone, her kind eyes search
ing his so clouded in the bitterness of
his di.-appoiutruent. "It couldn't be
helped. The news of her accident or
something brought on a seizure of some
kind. Mr. Maitland was taken very ill,
and tl ey sent for her. The manager
cKinc, nnd with him her old nurse, Mrs.
Cowan and Dr. Quin said she could be
moved without trouble: so she had to go.
I hated to have her, too, for I've hardly
had a t-ord with her: Mrs. Belknap has
been tl. ere most of the afternoon, even
when s le had a guest of her own just
arrived, too." And Mrs. Sprague could
not but show her vexation at this retro
spect. Pern stood in silence, looking yearn
ingly tfter the retreating vehicle. It
would nlo luiu but a few minutes to
hasten to stables and saddle Nolan; lie
could eisily catch them before they had
gone tv o miles; but there was parade,
and he could not ask to be excused.
Not tin il he suddenly looked around and
saw tin t Mrs. Belknap's dark eyes were
fixed ii close scrutiny ukhi his face did
he real ze how he was Mraying himself.
Then be rallied, but with evident effort.
Thecolouel was standing but a few
paces t.way, chatting with Mrs. Uv
reuce i.nd his faithful adjutant. Mrs.
Spragiu stepped quickly towards biiu
and spi ke a few words in a low tone,
while Mrs. Iielknap remained looking
straight into Perry's eyes. Before the
youug fellow could gather himself, CoL
Braiuaid, as though in reply to a sug
gestion of Mrs. Sprague's, suddenly
started, exclaiming, "Why, by all
means!" and then called aloud:
"Oh! Perry, why not gallop down and
overtake the Dunraven carriage and say
good-bj? Here's my horse all saddled
now ru;ht in the yard. Take him and
go: I would."
There was something so hearty and
genial und sympathetic in the colonel's
maimer tliat Perry's face flushed despite
hiseffoit at nonchalance. The thought
of seeii g her again and bearing her
sweet vjice was a powerful incentive.
He lout ed to go. The colonel's invita
tion wai equivalent to an excuse from
parade. There was no reason why he
should not go. He was on the very
point of thankfully accepting the tempt
ing offer, when Mrs. Belknap's words
arrested him. Clear nnd cutting, but
still so law that none but he could hear,
bbe upo :e:
"Tako my word for it, you are not
wanted, nor any other man, when Dr.
Quin is with her."
Perry s hesitation vanished. "Thank
you, col jnel. I believe I don't care to
go," he answered, and, raising his cap
to the adies, turned on his heel and
hurried to his quarters. Mrs. Belknap
stood watching him one moment, then
calmly tejoined 'Jie partv at the gate.
"Well," said she, with the languid
drawl tl at her regimental associates had
learned to know so well, "this has been
a day f surprises, has it not? Only
fancy our having a beautiful English
heiress here within reach and never
knowing it until today!"
"But you had a surprise of your own,
had you not?" Interposed Mrs. Sprague,
who wan still chafing over the fact that
her lovely and dangerous neighbor should
have so monopolized the guest she con
sidered hers by prior right, and who
meant remind her thus publicly of
tbe neglect of which she had been guilty.
"Mrs. Page, you mean?" responded
Mrs. Belknap, with the same languid,
imperturbable manner. "Yea; poor Jen

It wat full quarter of an hour after
parade, and darkness was setting down
on the g irrlson, when Capt. Lawrence's
orderly capped at the door of Mr. Perry 's
quarters, and, being bidden "Come in,"
pushed on to the sitting room, where he
found tl at young officer plunged deep
in an cany chair in front of the fireplace.
Lis attit ide one of profound dejection.
"Beg pardon, lieutenant," said the
man, "lira. Lawrence and the captain's

to say thst there is not in existence a
medicine so widely known as ibis, and
few indeed which have received such
positive and authoritative sanction from
the medical fraternity. The fact that it
promptly relieves, then extirpates, the
three maladies of most common occur
rence, ought and does make it the most
popular of family medicines. But, in
addition to that, it has achieved the
foremost reputation as a preventive of
and remedy for chills and fever.
The best medical writers claim that the
successful remedy for nasal catarrh must
be non-irritating, easy of application, and
one that will reach all tbe remote sores
and ulcerated surfaces. The history of
the efforts to treat catarrh during the
past obliges us to admit that only 'one
remedy has met these conditions, and
that is Ely's Cream Balm. This pleasant
remedy has mastered catarrh as nothing
else has ever done, and both physicians
and patients freely concede this fact.
