on the starlit prairie might soothe his

All light were out in the quadrangle.
Mve thorn at the guard house. Even at
Ikdknap'. quartf rs, where the reranda
had bten thronged with officers and Lv
dice only an hour before, a'.l was now si
lence and darkness. Unwilling to attract
attention by tramping up iin.l 0on on
the board walk, he crossed the ivid and
went out on the broad level of the pa
rade, but took care so to direct his steps
as not to come within hailing distance of
the guard liouw. It woul.i be awkward
work explaining the situation to the ser
geant of the guard in case the .entry
were ro see or near and challenge him.
He edged m-ell over to his left as he
walked, and so it happened tliat he found
himself, after a whilo, opposite the
northeast entrance to the post, and close
to the road on which stood the commis
sary and quartermaster storehouses.
There was a sentry posted here, t.v, and
it would n..t ili to l chaileng-d l.v him
any more than by "Number One,"'
Stopping a moment to listen for the
sentry', fivtfall. Perry's ear was at
tracted by the sound of a door slowlv
anj cautiously opened. It was some
little time lfore he could tell from
which one of the neighboring buildings,
looming there in the darkness, the sound
proceeded. Then he heard muffled foot
steps and a w hispered consultation not
far away, and hurrying on tiptoe in the
direction of the sound he presentl
caught sight of two or three shadowy
forms moving noiseledy along the
porch of the company quarters nearest
him. Stryker's troop, that to which he
belonged, was quartered down beyond
the guard house on the lower side of the
parade; these forms were issuing from
the barracks of Capt. Wayne's troop,
and before Perry could realize the fact
that they were out either in moccasins
or their stocking feet, and presumably
therefore on some unlawful enterprise,
they had disappeared around the corner
of the building. lie walked rapidly
thither, turned the corner and they were
nowhere in sight or hearing. Stopping
to listen did not help matters at all Ho
could not hear a sound, and as for the
shadows of w hich he wa la .ursuit.it
was simply impossible to tell which di
rection they had taken. They had vau
UheJ from the face of tho'earth and
were lost in the deeper gloom tliat hung
about the scattered array of wooden
buildings store houses, fuel kheds and
cook sneUs at the rear of the rost
Had it leen his own troop he could
nave rousea the hrst sergeant and order
eJ a "check" roll call a. a means of de
tenuinin at ouce who the night prowl
ers might he; but Capt Wayne had his
peculiariiies, and one of them wa. an
unalterable and deeply rooted objection
to any interference on the part of other
ouicxrs in ine management or liis men.
Perry's first thought, too, was of the sta
ble, and Sergt. Gwynne. Were they
meditating another foray, and had the
feeling spread outside their own com
pany? No time was to be hst. He turn
ed his face eastward to where the dark
outline, of the stables could lie dimly
traced against the 6ky, and hastened,
stumbling at times over stray tin cans
and other discarded rubbish, until he
crossed the interveninir swale and reach
ed the low bluff along which the crude.
ud paint-d structures were ranged. All
was darkness here towards the northern
end, and the one sentry who had exter
nal charge of the entire line was slowly
pacing his post; Perry could see his form,
dimly outlined, as he breasted the slope,
and it determined him to koep on in the
hollow until he got to a joint opposite
the stable, of bU own troop. If there

to see whetlter this soldier, too, would
turn ont to be in league with the con
spirator.. Listening intently as be hur
ried a Ion?, but hearing nothing. Perry
soon found himself at the pathway lead
ing to his own domain, and the next
minute was gazing in surprise at a light
burning dimly in the window of the lit
tle room occupied by Sergt. Gwynne;
there was not a glimmer elsew here along
Striding up to the window, ho tapped
lightly, and C Wynne's voice sternly
challenged from within, "Who's there?"
"Lieut. Perry, sergeant. Come around
and open the stable door for me."
"One moment, sir," was the answer,
and he heard the sergeant bounding, ap
parently, off his bed. Then a hand drew
aside the shade, and Gwynne's face ap
peared at the w indow, w hile a small lan
tern was held so as to throw its ray. on
the face without, "All right, air," he
continued. "I thought I could not be
deceived in the voice,"
Perry walked around to the front again,
taking another survey of the sleeping
garrison aa he did so, and listening once
more for footsteps; hut all was rtilL
PreMMly the little panel in the big door
was unlocked from within, and the lieu
tenant bent low and entered, finding
Gwynne, lantern in hand, standing in hi.
uncompromising attitude of "attention"
at the entrance.
"Everything been quiet here to-night?"
he asked, a. he straightened up.
"Perfectly so, sir."
"Come into your room a moment; 1
want to speak to you," said Perry, after
a moment', reflection.
They passed along the broad gangway
between tb. row. of sleepy horses, some
lying down in their stalls, others still
afoot and munching at their hay. The
stable guard stood at his post and faced
theui a. they turned into the dark and
narrow passage leading into Gwynne'a
little sanctuary. The lamp, along the
line of Mall burned low and dim, and,
the ports being lowered, gave no gleam
without the walla. Once more, however,
a bright light shone from the window of
the stable sergeant' room brighter than
before, could they only know it, for this
time there waa no intervening shade.
After his brief inspection of the lieuten
ant's face, Uwynne had left it drawn.
The sergeant set his lantern on n
wooden dek, and respectfully waited
for his superior to apeak. Perry looked
him well over a moment, and then be
gan: "Did you tell Capt. Stryker the parrJo-
alan of your rough treatment down
then at the ranch? v
"T . rough treatment yea, air."

that I rought me over here. I aaw some
men stealing out of M troop's quarter,
awhil ago. and lost them in the dark
ness. I thought they might be coming
over lie re, and got here first.
Gwynne's face lighted up. It touched
him o know his officer were on the
looko it for his safety.
"1 have heard nothing, sir. The men
woub hardly be apt to speak to me on
the si bject, since the affair of the other
night What I fear is simply this that
there is an element here iu the regiment
that i determined to get down there to
the ranch and have satisfaction for the
assau t that was made on you and your
party. They need horses in order to get
there and back between midnight and
reveil e, and are doubtless hatching some
plan. They failed here; now they may
try the stables of some other troop or the
quart -rmaster's. Shall I warn the sen

attempt while your light is burning here.

Gwyn ie, gravely, "but I want nothing

"W tat is it, sergeant?"
"I hive a little acket, containing some

"Cet tainly. I will take care of it f or

"I wauld rather know it was with vou,

safe," was Gwynne's answer, a. he
opened a little wooden chest at the foot
of his bunk, and, after rummaging a
momei.t, drew forth a parcel tied and

"No v I w ill go liack and notify the

"Whu the devil are you owling
around this time of night for?" wa the
not unaatural question. "I thought it

broke ciy neck in hurrrine out here."
But Perry'a brief recital of the fact
that he had seen some men stealing out
of the c, uarters of M troop in their stock
ing feet or moccasins put an end to Gra
ham's complaints. Hastily summoning
the Serjeant of the guard, he started out
to make the rounds of his sentries, while
Perry c uried his packet home, locked it
in his iesk, and then returned to the
veranda to await development.
Sergt Gwynne, meantime, having
lighted his young officer to the stable
door, st-nxl there a few moments, look
ing over the silent garrison and listening
to the ri treating footsteps. The sentry

over the eastern prairie out toward

gleaming aky before them, several
miles away, the dark and threatened
