CHAPTEh. XXII-At the last moment
Valiant takes the place of one of the
knights, who is sick, and enters the lista.
The Knight of the Crimson Rose.
The row of horsemen had halted in
a curving line before the grand stand,
and now in the silence the herald,
holding a parchment scroll, spurred
before each rider in turn, demanding
his title. As this was given he
whirled to proclaim it, accompanying
each evolution with a blast on his
horn. "Knight of the Golden Spur,"
"Knight of Castlewood," "Lord of
Brandon," "Westover's K n I g h t,"
"Knight of the Silver Cross": the
names, fanciful, or those of family es.
tates, fell on John Valiant's ear with
a pungent flavor of medievalism. He
started as he became aware that the
rider next him had answered and that
the herald had paused before him.
"Knight of the Crimson Rose!" It
sprang to his lips without forethought,
an echo, perhaps, of the improvised
sash and the flower in his lint-band,
but the shout of the herald and the
trumpet's blare seemed to make the
words fairly bulge with inevitability.
And through this struck a suddiei ap
palled feeling t' -t he had really
spoken Shirley's i ame, and that every
one had heard. lie could not see her
face, and clutched his lance fiercely
to overcome an insane desire to stoop
hideously in his saddle and peer un
der the shading hat-brim. Lest he
should do this, he fastened his eyes
determinedly on the major, who now
proceeded to deliver himself of the
"Charge to the Knights."
The major made an appealing ceu.
ter to the charming picture as he
stood on the green turf, "the glass
of fashion and the mold or form," his
head bare, his shock of blond-gray
hair thrown back, and one hand thrust
between the buttons of his snowy
waistcoat. His rich bass voice rollel
out to the farihest corner of the field:
"The tournament to which we are
gathered today is to us traditional; a
rite of anthluity and a monument of
ancient generations. This relic of i1.i

deed, knowing that this is no hollow~
ceremionial, but an earnest that the

Over the ringing applause, Nancy

smile, quizzical yet soft. "Dear old

The herald blew a blast, calling the
title of the first of the knights. In
stantly, with lance at rest, the latter
galloped at full speed down the lists.
There was a sharp musical clash, and
as he dashed on, the ring flew the
full length of its tether and swung
back, whirling swiftly. It had been a
close thrust, for the iron pike-point
had smitten its rim. A cheer went up,
under cover of which the rider looped
back outside the lists to his former
In an upper tier of the stand a spec
tator made a cup of his hands. "The
Knight of the Golden Spur against the
field," he called. "What odds?"
"Five to one, Spotteswood," a voice
"Ten dollars," announced the first.
"Good." And both made memoran
dumn on their cuffs:
A second time the trumpet sounded,
and the Knight of Castlewood flashed
ingloriously down the roped aisle-a
Again and again the clear note rang
out and a mounted figure plunged by,
and presently, in a burst of cheering,
the herald proclaimed "The Knight of
the Black IEagle-one!" and Chilly
Lusk, in old-rose doublet and inky
plume cantered back with a silver
ring upon his pike.
No simple thing, approaching leis
urely and afoot., to send that tapering
point straight to the tiny mark. But
at hieadlong gallop, astrido a blooded
horse straining to take the bit, a deed
requiring a nice eye, a perfect seat
and an unwavering arm and hand!
Thoss knights who looped back with
their pikes thus braceleted had spent
long hours in practice and each rode
as naturally as he breathed; yet more
than once a horse shied in mid-course
and at the too-eager thrust of the spur
bolted through the ropes. Valiant
made his first essay-and missed
with the blood singing in his ears.
The ring flew from his pike, catching
him a swinging blow on the temple in
its rebound, but he scarcely felt it. As
he cantered back he heard the major's
bass pitting him against the field.
And then, suddenly, stand and field
all vanished. lie saw only the long
level rope-lined lane with its twinkling
mid-air point. An exhilaration caught
him at the feel of the splendid horse
flesh beneath him--that sense of one
ness with the creature he bestrode
which the instinctive horseman knows.
He lifted his lance and hefted it, seek
ing its absolute balance, feeling its
point as a fencer with his rapier.
When again the blood-red sasi

next joust also, Valiant returned with
the gage upon his lance. Two had
gone to the Chanplon of Castlewood
and two to scattering riders. When
Valiant wvon his fourth the grand stand
thundered with appilause.
The trumpet again pealed its silvery
proclamoa tion. Judge Chalmers was on

but none heard him; the last tilts were
Where had John Valiant learned
that trick or the loose wrist and in
flexible thrust, but at the fencing club?
Where that subconscious management
of the rein, that nice gage of speed
and distance, but on the polo foeld?
The old sports stood him now in good
etead. "Why, he has a seat like e
centaur!" exclaimed the judge-praise
indeed in a community where riding
was a passion and horseflesh a fetish!
"Oh, dear!h mourned Nancy Chal

Katharine looked at her- with a lit

before and read it aright. John Va

only of skill but of strength and dar

never in all his life had he so desired
to pluck the prize. Ils grip was tense
on -the lance as the yellow doublet
and olive plume of Castlowood shot
away for a last time--and failed. An
instant later the Knight of the Crim

the last ring on his pike.
And the tourney was won.
In the shouting and hand-clapping
Valiant took the rose from his hat
band and bound it with a shred of his
lash to his lance-point. As he rode
slowly toward the masised stand, the
whole field was so still that he could
hear the hoofs of the ?1e of knights

Beyond wanting him to take part, she
hhd not thought. She looked about
her, suddenly dismayed. People were
smiling at her and clapping their
hands. From the other end of the
stand she saw Nancy Chalmers throw

pale girl in chantpagne-color staring
through a jeweled lorgnette.
She was conscious all at once that

a little breathless. Nancy Chalmers

center of a shifting group, round which
the white bulldog, tad with recovered
liberty, tore in eccentric circles.

Shirley saw him start and faco

amazement and welcome in his eyes.
