And the warning -that those monu.
ments gave was backed up, not by the
serried ranks of untold thousands, but
by thirty young cavalrymen. Just now
the little squad of line riders were
lolling in the shade of their tents
where they watched Corporal Welsh
as he superintended the. saddling-a
painstaking job indeed, for to a cav
alryman the slightest wrinkle in a sad.
dle blanket is a serious matter, as it
may well put him afoot with a lame
horse in the course of a day's march.
Kynaston mounted and, leaving his
little squad to move slowly out along
the rocky trail, rode quickly back to
the tent where the two women sat.
Here he swung out of saddle and,
tossing his reins to the trumpeter.
called out cheerily enough:
"I say, Miss Upton, I hope I will
find you and Mrs. Fane here when I
return. It has just occurred to me
that I ought to give you the warning
that is contained in the note I re
"It will not be safe for you to cross
the line here inside of the next twen.

leads directly south and connects with
the main road to Ojinaga, and there is
fighting going on there. It will be
extremely unwise for you to leave
here, at least until I return. I shall
be back by daylight. I think. I can't
tell you any more just now. I know
Mr. Uptob would wish you to act on
"Certainly, Mr. Kynaston; we will
take your advice and profit by your
courtesy until our chauffeur comes

And Miss Upton waved her white
hand cheerily to the youngster as be
took the slope at a gallop to join the
little squad, which was already well
on its way toward the rocky little trail
that led eastward to the mesa.
Mrs. Fane watched them till she
saw the last man of the little rear
guard pass over the'ridge. Then she
turned to Dorothy.
"He seems a nice man-a really nice
young man," she commented, stand
ing with her hands on her hips, look
ing down at the younger woman. "I
am not at all sure that I have ever
seen a better looking man in years."
Shle eyed Dorothy speculatively. "And
he'd make a mighty good match for a
young girl like you," she concluded.
"You speak like Methuselah,"
laughed Dorothy. "Teach me out of
the bookc of your experience."
"My dear," laughed Mrs. Pane, "do
you know that a widow of twenty-five
is as old-"
"As she wants to be? Yes, just
that; and not a day older."
"Do you want him, Dorothy? If you
do I will keep my hands off; but I

Fearing lest she should betray a
touch of jealousy, Dorothy hastily
