"I think, Wed, It would be best to go
(right to papa and tell him all. When
'ho hears your Atory from your own

nnd the fact Is fully established to his
ontlsfaction that you are worthy of mo
nnd are fully justified in approaching
ihlm on such a subject, ho may treat
,you kindly and Interpose no serious ob

"And yet I fear him, Alice, darling.
Mo matter what I might provo myself
to be, ho would sco mo but as the pri

servitude! Never beforo did they so
deeply cut Into my soul."
Mending over her ho Imprinted a lov
ing kiss upon her check, nnd she clung
yet closer to him in acknowledgment
of the salute.
"And yet ho might receive you moro
kindly than you anticipate, Ned. 1'npa

despite his harshness In enforcing dis

that my happiness Is at stake and could

nnd purity of our love, ho might nt

'discharge from the service can bo se

Her eyes were upturned to his with
pleading enrnestness, and ngnln press

plied: "My darling, I will endeavor for tho
time to forget that I am n privato sol
dier, and will go to him as n man to
man, In a manly uny. If he will but
llbtcn to me to tho end he cannot but
see that I am worthy of your love, and
if he will allow his wisdom to rule him,
ho must seo that I make no unreason
able request In asking him to fully in
vestigate my pabt history and to sus
pend judgment on what he may term
my assurance until he has done so."
"Klcss you for that determination,
Ned. And when will you sec him?"

Ho assisted her into tho saddle, nnd
then turning to him with great crystul
tenrs in her eyes she said:
"May God go with you, Ned. my own

moment for your bueeess, nndvill bo
in an agony of subpenso nnd anxiety

she galloped away, nnd with a wild
ly beating heart he followed after up
the hill to tho fort.
doing first to his own quarters ho
donned his best uniform, and then, al
most trembling nt his own assurance,
lie crossed the parade-ground to the
hendquartcrs building, entered tho
hallway and rapped at Col. bnuford's
That rharp, harsh command burned
the bridge behind him, Jtctrent was
r.ow impossible, even should hu desire

When he entered tho room the old
u)inmnnder wns sitting at his desk
writing, and paid not the slightest u
,tjntion to his presence. Cnp in hand,
Ills heart almost In his throat, tho
young soldier stood In tho middle of
the lloor for fully two minutes until the
ofilcer had completed tho letter upon
tviucii no was engaged.
Had Ilrown but known tho mood tho
old man wns in, ho would have seen be
foro him the hopelessness of his errand.
Something in the official ranks had an
noyed him, and his temper was far
from being In nn unclouded state.
Uttering tho words with n sharp,
commanding accent, Col. Sanford
leaned back in his chair and regarded
Ms visitor with a bcowl on his face.
Summoning all his courago Drown be

ouiclnl's blunt demand he blurted out:
"Col. Sanfonl, I am nn honornblo

He paused almost terrified. Tho old
olllccr's face grew livid with rage, and
his eyes blared forth tho fires of his

"Why, the fellow Is surely crazy. Ho

of an Insane man Hal ha! ha! hal
Why, danime. I should lnugh over his
absurd fiuiuy Instead of wanting to

A side door opened nnd. pale as n
ghost and trembling in every limb, his
daughter entered. She Intel heard It
nil, and her heart wns n ell-nigh
broken. Seeing her ngltntlon, tho old
man placed an arm alTeetionutcly about
her waist, and. drawimr her trnderK-
to his liosorn, wild:
"There, there, my Httlo treasure.
don't be frightened. It wns nothing
but n poor insane soldier who imagines
himself to be in love with you. I la! ha!

J m-owlng lier arms anont ms node,
she kissed him fondly, nnd, In a voice
choking wltli sobs, snld:
"Oh! papa, dear, darling nana, would
you doom your little Sunshine to n llfo
of unhapplnesb? I kuow the gentleman
wno was just hero. Ho is n man of
honor nnd Integrity, and I love him as

Tho old father cast her from him and
would hnvo fallen to tho floor from tho
shock had ho not clutched his debk for
support, (lazing upon her trembling,
cowering form ho snld honrsoly:
"Are you, too, crazy? Speak, girl!
Are you, too? a raving lunatic? What!
You bestow ,vour lovo upon n worthless
private soldier! Oh, ray Uod, this Is too

gardless of tlmo or distance, until sho
renched tho hend of n gulch four miles
below tho fort. Down the gulch sho
rode, Intending to return to tho gar
rison along tho river bank nloug tho
path which sha had traversed with her
lover but two hours boforo. Just ns
sho emerged from tho mouth of tho
gulch Into tho open valley there nfoso n
loud, savago yell that chilled her
blood, and a scoro of dusky forms
sprang up from the bushes nnd con
fronted her. Savago hands grasped
tho reins of her bridle nnd savage eyes
glared upon her trembling form und
gloated over her terror.
Sho was In tho hands of a band of
Mcscnlero Apache IndlaiiB, their hid
eous focc,s rendered yet moro hideous
by grent bhitchcsof war paint.
While, somo of tho Indians danced
about her In fiendish exultation, others
bound her nrms with rawhldo thongs,
and then, leading her pony In their
midst, thoy forded tho Itto Grande nnd
moved eastward through tho hills to
ward tho Mescalcro reservation beyond
the San Andreas.
A cavalry soldier who was hunting
antelope In tho hills witnessed tho cap
turo from n distance, nnd pushing his
horso to Its utmost bpecd boro tho
news to the fort.
Tho tidings of tho poor girl's capture
throw tho garrison Into tho wildest ex
citement. Duglcs blared forth tho call
to horse, and every preparation was
made for the pursuit of tho red fiends.
Col. Snnford paced tho porch In front
of his quarters, issuing orders to his of
ficers, svt caring and gnashing his teeth
in his grent rugu nnd grief. In the
midst of his frnutlc movements l'rlvato
Drown, his face palo and pnln-drawn,
his eyes set In u look of tho most fixed
determination, stepped onto tho porch
and confronted him.
"Col. Snnford," hu cried, "you must

"No, colonel, I will not go und you

will, but your daughter's llfo depends

Something in tho young soldier's loolc
nnd tone iirrosted tho eolonul's uplifted
hand, and allowing the point of his
sword to drop to the lloor ho said:
"Well, sirrah, whuthuvoyou to say?"
"Thank God you hnvo permitted ron

Col. Sanfonl, do yon not know that If
you send troops on tho trail of those In
dians your notion will seal the death

themselves of their burden and scatter

Tho old man shuddered, and in a

with flashing eyes. "Her rescue must
bo accomplished by strategy, not at
tempted by force of arms. O, Col. San
ford, nb you value that loving daugh
ter's life, give mo a strong, fleet horso
nnd 1 will tnko tho trail at once, nnd if
I do not return your beloved child'
to your nuns It, will bo becnuso my
nnmo has been stricken from tho roll
of llfo und added to tho great roster of
denth. I will nnd can rescue her if you
will permit me to do bo."
Tho old eoinmnnder regarded tho sol
dier with a searching look, ndmlrntion
beaming from his eyes. In tho young
man's elenr, unflinching gaze ho saw
evldenco of tho courage of tho lion,
courage thnt would not wnver in.tho
fuco of nny dnngor. Ills hatred of tho
liumblo privato wns Intense, for ho had
diired to look upon his dnughtor with
eyos of lovo, yot that duughtor's llfo
wns now nt stnko, nnd ho reullzed that
her rescue depended perhaps wholly
upon'tho efforts of tho mnn ho so de
spised. It wns doubtful If a man in all
that garrison could ba found who would
take his llfo in his hands nnd go upon u
mission so fraught with deadly norll.
Drown stood and nwnltcd tho result df
his plea, his woll-poised head thrown i
buck und his clear oyes looking Into
thoso of tho commander with uulllncli-

Springing into the saddlo ho put

nnd went thundering nwny on the
trail, followed by tho approving shouts
of his comrades.
After his departure from tho fort tho
troops were dismissed with orders to
hold themselves In readiness to mount
nt it moment's notice. Hvery officer
nnd officer's wife guthered nt the
colonel's quarters to cheer him In his
grent grief, nnd bid him hope for tho
best. Despite their assurances tho old
warrior sat stricken with sorrow. A
nameless fear had settled upon his
soul, almost prostrating him beneath
Its crushing weight. In his easy chair
he sat surrounded by sympathising
friends, alternately bemoaning his loss
nnd cursing tho Indians.
"I have every confidence In thnt mnn
Drown, colonel," said Cnpt. Colby.
"He has been In my troop for nearly
threo years, nnd until recently hns

"Tho snino man, colonel: nnd I bo

Col. Snnford's hend drooped on his
breiibt nnd ho snt for sovernl minutes
In deep reflection. Occasionally a deep,
pnlnful sigh would cbcnpo from lflm,
a suddenlng evldenco to thoso nround
"htm of the tcrrlblo grief which had
como upon him. As ho sat thcro buried
in his own distracting thoughts, Idout,
Vnndovcr entered nnd silently stood,
