A Story of American Frontier

WO days passed with
out event of any kind.
Socially apeak infr, the
Knrriston was enliven
ed by the advent of
Mrs. Pago, and every
body flcN-ked to t hp Tfa-I-
knape'quartprH in order to do hex prixr
bouiagu. When P-rry called lie asked
Parke to pro with him, and when the lat
ter termed ready to leave the former,
disreKardiiiR a very palpaMo hint from
the lady of the house, picked up his for
age cap and went liLewiso. For two
days the one subject under constant dis
cussion nt the post was the event of Miss
Maitland's sudden appearance, her peril
ous run and her daring and skillful res
cue. Everybody maintained that Perry
ought to be a very proud aud happy fel
low to have been the hero of such an
occasion; but it was very plain that Perry
waa neither proud nor anything like
happy. No one bad ever known him so
silent and cast down. The talk with
Lawrence had helped matters very littlo.
In brief, this was about all the cap
tain could tell him, and it was all hear
say evidence nt liest. T.'io ofiVcrs of the
Eleventh and their ladies bad, with a
few exception, taken a dislike to Pr.
juin before IV-lknap and Lawrence with
their companies of infantry had been or
dered to Fort Rossiter. The feeling was
in full blast when they arrived, aud dur
IngttiCHix or eight months they served
there together the infantry people heard
only one side of the story that of the
fcJeventh for the doctor never conde
scended to discuss the matter. After
he was forbidden to leave the twist
by his commanding officer, and after
the announcement of tho "blockade" of
Dunraven, it was observed that eignuls
were sometimes made from tho ranch at
night: a strong li-ht thrown from a re
flector was flashed three times and then
withdrawn. Nest it was noted, by tin
enterprising tnetulier of the guard, that
these signals were answered by a light
in tho doctor's windows, then that he
mounted bis horse and rode away down
the valley of tho Moneu. Ho was al
ways back at sick call; and, if any one
told the commanding officer of his diso
bedience of orders, it was not done until
so near tho departure of tho Eleventh
that tho doctor was not afterwards act
ually caught in the act. Things would
undoubtedly have been brousht to a
crisis had tho Eleventh been allowed to
Now as to the story about Mrs. Ouin
aud her going. It was observed during
the winter that she was lookinr verv
badly, and the story went the rounds iii
the Eleventh that she was Ktun-r mid buf
fering liecause of her husband a conduct.
Unquestionably there was some fair i n-
chautressat Luuraven who lured him
from his own lireside. She had no inti
mates among tho ladies. She was twoud
and aileiit. It did Dot seem to occur to
them that she waa resentful of their dis
like of her husband. They were sure she
was pining" because of his neglect or
worse. When, therefore, without word
of warning, she suddenly took bur de
parture in the spring, there was a gasp
of gossip loving cronies in the garrison;
ail doubts were at an end: bite liad left
him and taken her children with her.
"Tho uioro I think of it," said Law
rence, the more I believe the whole
thing capable of explanation. The only
thing that puzzles me now is that Quiii
bides anything from your colonel, who
is one of the most courteous arid rotitud
erate men I ever served with. Perhaps
he has told him by this timu; we don't
know. Perhaps be thought he might lw
of the same stamp as Ids predecessor,
and was waiting to tind out before be
made bis confidences. As to M rs. (Ruin's
going away when sho did. it may have
been simply that her health was suffer
ing, she needed change, ntid went with
bis full a.lvi -e find by his wish, and he
simply feels too much contempt for gar
rison go-sip to explain. Very probably
he knows nothing of the storiex und the

who hear and know everything, and
others who never hear a word of scan
dal." But Perry was low In bis mind. He
could r.ot forget yuiu's sudden appear
ance; bis calling her Gladys; and then be
hated the thought that it was Quin who
saw biiu having that confounded tender
interview with 5Ir. Belknap. Was there
ever such a streak of ill luck as that?
No doubt the fellow had told her about
itl Perry left Lawrence's that night
very little comforted, and only one
gleam of hote did he receive in the two
days that followed. Mrs. Spracue joy
fully beckoned him on Wednesday after
noon to read him a little note that bad
just come from Miss Maitland. Her
father bad been very ill, she wrote; bis
condition was still critical; but she sent
a world of thanks to her kind entertain
ers at Uossiter, and these w ords: "I waa
sorry not to be able to see Mr. Perry
again. Do not let him think I have for
gotten, or will l,e likely to forget, the
service he und Nolan did me."
Of Dr. Quin he saw verv little. With
the full consent and knowledge of CoL
Brainard, the doctor was spending a
good deal of time at Dunraven now, at
tending to Mr. Maitland. Indeed, there
seemed to be an excellent understanding
between the commandant and his medi
cal oflicer, and it was known that they
had had a long talk together. Upper
circles in the garrison were still agitated
with chat and conjecture aliout Gladys
Maitland and her strange father; Perry
was still tortured with questions about
his one visit to Dunraven whenever !
was ho incautious as to anneur in imblic:
but all through "the quarters," every
where anions- the rank and file, there
was a subject thatengrossed all thoughts
and tongues, and thut wasdiwussed with
feeling that seemed to deepen with every
lay the approaching court martial of
bergt. Lpary aud of Trooper Kelly.
As a result of his investigation, Capt
fctryker had preferred chanres mrairmt
these two men the one for leading and
the other for being accessory to tho as
sault on his atuble aertreanL Owvnna
was still at the hospital, thouch ranidlv
recovering from bis injuries. Not a word
nau lie said that would implicate or ao-
cuiie any man; but Stryker. knowledge
of his soldiers, and his clear Insight Into
iiutnaa motive and character, were such
that he had readily made up his mind as
to the facU in the case. He felt sure that
sary and some of the Celtic members nf
his company had determined to go down
to Dunraven and "have it out" with the
hated Briton who had so affronted and

They kne w they could not get their horses
by fair means, for Gwynne was above
suspicion. lie was English, too, and
striving to shield his countrymen from
the threatened vengeance. They there
fore dete -mined, in collusion with Kelly,
to lure him outside the stables, bind and
gag him, got their horses, having ones
rifled Gwynne of the keys, ride down to
the rancli, and, after having a Donny
brook fai - on the premises, get back to
Rossiter i 1 plenty of time for reveille and
stables. No sentries were posted in such
way as to interfere with them, and the
plan was feasible enough but for ons
thing. Gwynne had made moat gallant
and Bpiritid resistance, had fought the
wnoie gat g like a Hirer, and thev had
been unal le to overpower him before the
noise had attracted the attention of the
sergeant f the guard and some of the
men In quarters. An effort, of course,
was made to show that the assaulting
pany wet irom without, but it was
futile, anl Stryker's cross-questioning
among tho men had convinced them that
he knew til about ths matter. There
was only one conclusion, therefore, that
Gwynne must have "given them away,"
as the trot pers expressed it.
Despite the fact that he had been as
saulted an 1 badly beaten, this was some
thing that few could overlook, and the
latent jealousy against the "cockney
sergeant" I ilazed into a feeling of deep
resent men. Garrison sympathy was
with Leary and bis fellows.
Thursda;- came, and Sergt. Gwynne
returned to light duty, though his face
was still biuised and discolored and be
wore a pat -h over one eye. He resumed
charge of the stables In the afternoon,
after a hrii f conversation with his cap
tain, and was superintending the Issue
of forage, vlico Perry entered to inspect
the stalls of his platoon. Nolan was
being led ut by his groom at the mo
ment, and pricked up bis tapering ears
at 6igbt of .lis master and thrust his lean
muzzle to r veive the caress of the hand

and carefully and critically examined
Ids knees, fcling down to the fetlocks
w ith searc ling finger for the faintest
symptom of knot or swelling in the ten
dons that bad played their part so
thoroughly in the drama of Monday.
Satisfied, apparently, he rose and be
stowed a few hearty pats on the glossy
neca- ana shoulder, and then was sur
prised to find the stable sergeant stand
ing close be .ide him and regarding both
hiiu and In rso with an expression that
arrested Petry's attention at once.
"Feeling all right again, sertreant?" he
asked, thinking to recall the non-com
missioned oilicer to bis senses.
"Almost, sir. I'm a trifle stiff yet
Anything wrong with Nolan, sir?"
"Nothing. I gave him rather a touch

There was no answer. Perry had been

the thigh were clinching and working
nervously, and something suspiciously
like a tear w.w creeping out from under
the patch. Iu-fore Perry could recover
from his surprise the sergeant suddenly
regained his self control, hastily raised
his hand In salute, saying something
half articulate in reply, and turned
sharply a war. leaving his lieutenant
gazing after l.iiu in much perplexity.
That iiibt, just after tattoo roll call,
when a little group of officers was gath
ered at the colonel's gate, they were sud
denly joined by Dr. Quin, who came
from the direction of the stable where he
kept his horst in rear of his own quar
ters. Col. Bndnard greeted him warmly
and inquired after his patient at Dun

of the young fellow's manner, "Mr.

Even in the darkness Perry feared that

And Perry fel: as though the fence had

triving to regain his composure, and
then the talk w.;nt on. It was Strvkr
who was talking now:
"Has the ring been found, doctor?"
"No! That is a most singular thing

broke his heart."
"And the ring was lost the night of
Perry's adventure there?" asked the col
onel. "Yes. Mr. Perry remembers having
seen it on his haul when the old gentle
man first came dt wn to receive him. It
was missed afterv ards, and could easily
have sliped off at any time, for bis fin

I have had inquiry made throughout the
troop, but with no result so far. Do you

vised by their old nurse she who came
up w ith the carriage for Miss Maitland

a doctor, used to notify Quin in that
