of hi own men, Capt
Htryker rodo forth
noma fifteen minutes
later. His order from CoL Brainard
wore to go to Dunraven, and. If he found
the marauder there, to arrest the entire
party an I bring them back to the post
From all that could be learned from har
ried questioning of the sentries and the

try was walking towards the south end
of hia ik4 to lift one of their number
over the wall of the inclosuro in w hich
were kept the wagons and ambulances.
This man ha J unbarred from within the
gate k-ading eastward to the trail down
which the "stock" was driven daily to
water in the Monee. Riley admitted
that -the boys" had left a bottle with
him which he and his assistant had
riuptieU liefore turning in, and so it bap-M-red
that, unheard and unseen, the
raiders had managed to slip out with a
iloaen horses that were kept there and
had also tik- n sis mules as "mounts"
fort'iosowho could not find anything
Eighteen tuen, apparently, were in tho
lurty, and the sentry on Number Three
heard hoof tx'aU down towards the val
ley aUmt half past 2 o'clock, but thought
it was only some of the ponies belonging
to the Cheyenne scouts. There was ons
comfort the men had taken no firearms
with tiieni; for a hurried inspection of
the com puny quarters showed that the
carbines were all in their racks and the
revolvers in their cases. Some of the
men might hare small caliber pistols of
their own, but the government arms had
not been disturbed. Half the party, at
least, must have ridden bareback and
with ouly watering bridles for their
steeds. They were indeed "spoiling for
a fight," and the result or the roll call
showed tbut the missing trooper were
all Irishmen and some of the best and
most opulor men in the command.
Whatever their plan, thought Strrker,
as he trotted down to the Monee, it was
probably carried out by this time; it was
now within a minute of 4 o'clock.
Ouly a mile out he was overtaken by
Dr. Quin, who reined up an instant to
ask if any one had been sent ahead.
"Thank tiod for that!" he exclaimed,
when told that Perry and Sergt. Uwynne
had gone at the first alarm; then, strik
ing spurs to his horse, pushed on at rapid
gallop, while the trooper maintained
their steady trot A mile from Dun
raven, in the dim light of early morning,
the captain keen eyes caught sight of
shadowy forms of mounted men on the
opposite shore, and, despite their effort
to eticape on their wearied steeds, three
of them were speedily run down and
captured. One of them was Corp. Dono
van, and Donovan's face was white and
Us manner agitated. Bidding him ride
alongside as they pushed ahead toward
the ranch, Strvker questioned him as to
what had taken place, and the corporal
never sought to equivocate:
"We've been trying for several nights.
Ir, to get horses and go down and have
It out with those blackguards at the
ranch. We took no arms, sir, even those
of us who had pistols of our own. All
we asked was a fair fight man against
man. They wouldn't come out of their
hole they dasn't do it, sir and then
they fired on us. We'd have burned the
roof over their heads, but tbat Lieut
Perry galloped in and stopuM us. I
came away then, sir, and so tiid most of
us. We knew 'twas all up when we saw
the lieutenant; but there was more fir
ing after I lift This way, captain. Out
across the prairie here. We cut down
the fence on this side." And so saying,
Donovan led the little troop to a broad
gap in Die wide barrier, and thence
straight across the fields to where light
were seen Uitting about in the dark
shadows or the buildings of the ranch.

young solJier who gallojied into the
midst or the swarm or taunting Irish
men, had fired the cru.fl shot There
lay Nolan dead upon the ward, and
here, close at hand, his grier stricken
master had finally swooned rrom losa
or blood, the bullet having pierced hi
leg below the knee. Beside him knelt
the doctor: he had cut away the natty
riding boot, and was rupidly binding up
the wound. Close at hand stood Gwynne,
a world or anxiety and trouble in hia
bruised and still discolored race.
Grouped around were some of the as
sailing party, crestfallen and dismayed
at the unlooked lor result or their roray,
but ashamed to attempt to ride away,
now that their favorite young officer
was sore stricken as a result of their mad
folly. Mr. Ewen, too, had come out,
and was bustling about, giving direc
tion to the one or two of his hands who
had ventured forth from the office build
ing. The big frame house under whose
falls the group was gathered was evi
dently used as a dormitory for a number
of men, and this hud I wen the objective
point or the attack, but not a soul had
issued rrom its jH.rtals; the occupants
were the men who mude the assault on
Perry the night of his first visit, and
now they deemed it best to keep mi thin.
Everything indicated that Perry had got
to the scene just in time to prevent a
bloody and desjierate fracas, ror the few
ranch people who apKared were still
quivering with excitement and dread.
Ewen was almost too much agitated to

worry about nothing. Tho row was over,

were the onlf victims; but it had been a
great shock to Mr. Maitland and ren
dered hia condition critical.
Perry listened in silence., asking no
question. For tho time being he could
think of not: ling but Nolan's loss. It waa
such a cruel fate to be killed by those he
came to saviv.
All that di y he lay there, dozing and
thinking alternately. Ho wondered at

allowed to come up and see Perry a few
moments, but Mr. Cowan waa vigilant

doctor, in answer to Perry's Inquiring
look. "Sha has ridden down here with

Presently Mrs. Cowan reappeared:
"Miss Gladys has asked to be excused, as

"Certainly I do, doctor."
"I may as well explain that singular

that I didn't get along amicably with
your predocossors of the Eleventh. Their
colonel was ass enough to totally miscon
strue the purpose or my visits here, and
I m as ass enough to make no explana

not called for again while the Eleventh
remained; and therefore I said no more

first I knew of it was the signal lights

was wanted. It waa the night of the

and explain afterward. Wfcen I met
you all of a sudden the next morning,
the first impulse was to get away out of
your sight, and I obeyed it simply be
cause of the unpleasant experiences 1
