Ilayne's planning when in Chi cago, were tossed in reckless disorder i upon the snowy coverlet of the bed, and hrr'preclous locket Randy's locket was as ' suddenly unclasped from the" rooTid, white throat, and in the. tumult In Iwr soul she heard no sound of the ailMen stir and sortie at the guard 'houjse. She never knew that there was no eentry faithful to his watch along the rear of officers' row, to take up and par oa the stirring, reassuring cry that no array girl can hear without rejoicing or misa without alarm "Two o'clock and all's well." " , The dawn was breaking over the far Jornada and turning the distant Ouadr alocpe into gold when the Jliflers rolled cway-officers and men, "barring the band and company 'Ike' by war de partment orders a few years ago com' jvanies T and "K" of each regiment of Infantry were "skeletonized by trans' ter of tblr men to other companies', leavinff tlhoee two merely paper Com manils. Just as "Co. Q" has been for jearathe derisive title of the guard house prisoners, so does "Co. Ike" be C'a to appear as a name for the 'be- reayed .and. friendless commands.,, rei ferred to at Sedgwick," as the cavalry trumpeter remarked to the' gunner when they were going out to stir the echoes with their reveille; only these at Sedgwick, and one stalwart old captain with his devote half-hundred, Tre- maine, still doing duty at the canton ment fond, lonely old father, whose heart was wrapped up in that one child, yet could not deny her to the man she loved so well.' Sedgwick was begin ning to yawn and stir. The night owls in tbe canyons were hooting back (to their nests, dismayed by the howlings of the human night owls tacking home to duty, already half regretful of the wfalsky wasted, while before them was that remorseless wrath to come.' The cooks were astir in tbe barracks, and filmy smoke-veils were sailing straight aloft from the chimneys of half a dozen company kitchens. Already, too, the household servants along tbe row of cavalry officers' quarters, that which backed to the south, were lighting their, little morning blazes, for Sedgwick lay beyond range and antlhracite. In the good old days of 20 years before, the cocktail, not softee, was the necessary prelude to reveille and morning stables'. Now, with the wisdom that comes long: after war, oaly case-hardened, bandy-; legged old dragoons ever dreamed of-a. drink at that hour of leap from sleep to life; the inner cavalryman craves the juice of Mocha and mocks at rye. From every ,'set" of cavalry quarters then the kitchen chimney seutflloft its feathery plume, with one exception a sub altern's house-well over toward the western end of the row; and toward the gate thereof, edging away from the ribald homeward-bound of the main road and shuffling stolidly across the mesa. Hop Ling was making his rapid way. Fan-tan- had gone against him, and but for his hands his pockets were ompty.sJIop bore with him an air of depression, and was followed by a faint fragrances of inandrngora.. His bleary little eyes were searching furtively along that line of fence and stables for the gleam of the sentry's carbine and cap ornaments. He must place that watchman of the night and know his ground before he entered post. 'Spose the officer of the guard had happened to meet him during the : night. 'SpoBe somebody sick. " 'Spose Misse Mel lium she -wanttee chow-chow?" Bang! the morning gun roared its lusty sum mons to be tip and doing,' and skulkjng coyotes squatted lower as they sneaked away from the outlying quarters, no chicken the . richer, . and the guard turned out with 20 additions to com pany Q and more still a-coming and the telegraph instrument in the clerk's of fice began to call "Lalarrup Lalarrup Lalarrup," and the soldier operator, washing his face in a tin basin outside, glanced up and said: "The deuce with you. You always call when I'm wash ing. What's up now?" and had to drOp ablutions, and, wringing his hands as (he ran, to answer the sharp, insistent summons; and as he listened his fate grew. keen and excited, and, checking the rapid clicking of the key one in stant, he yelled to the drowsy clerk in the adjoining' office: "Billy quick! Tumble up and see if Lieut. Merriam's back. I've a message for him," and then clicked and listened and 'noted again; but the reveille was chirruping Its merry music, and the sweet, cool, morning air rang with the melody, and tbe troopers were tumbling out from the barracks and ever across the parade officers-came stalking forth from their doorways, for the th were sticklers about morning stables and roll call; and, most prominent figure of all, streaking across the mesa with pig tails and pajamas a-flying, with his felt bottomed boots fairly flashing, with flaring eyes, distended for once at least with mad appeal and dread in every feature and shrill distress in his chat tering tones, came Hop Ling, straight for the guardhouse and shrieking for "Mellium.' 1 1 A new officer of th guard, a scowling and unresponsive man, turned from his survey of the array of grinning prison ers, forgetting their own troubles in the 'conteuiplutioni of Hop's grotesque misery, and this new official, Whittaker by name, sternly shouted: "Stop your infernal ' noise, you clapper-jawed heathen.' "What" the' devil's the mat ter?" "Mellium! Mellium!" was all poor Hop could pant. "Mr. Merriam isn t here," said Whit taker, majestically. "Oh wha he gone? Misse Mellium gone! Sljc gon.e-Mmiqn al.le .gone;" "Whew ! " said Whittaker. "Sergeant, take charge of the guard. I've got to go up to Caut. Grafton's and report this Conje on wtyh me, lqitheatben' and, foj-getfpl of (ftie'joflioer .'of the day, and oiA) too 1 ready 'to virilt Grafton's and bask under that window, the lieutenant hastened away. Hop obediently and hopefully following. Matters. weren't so bad perb&ps, then, after an, thought he. Odd though, the freak might be, his master and, mistress. might possibly have trotted away together for a very early morning ride and would-eoen be back demunding breakfast. t i But Grafton was oit in a if llAtat, and together did flie three hasten to the pretty nest whichvnandy had bo proud ly furnished for his bride. Hop ushered them to the dark, empty parlor, then to the empty rooms'.above. There on the tihrumpled bed, just where she had thrown them, wore the garments Flo had haejtily discarded. There on the dressing table were toilet articles in wild disarray, "She's heard in some way of his orders to chase those d d greasers," said Whittaker, ' sul lenly. He, whoi; fjqited; .'Jh'e, nam ,of Fanny Ilayward a year gone byr JJorhov- Ing lilted his fondest friend, now well ntgh hated him because the woman sought him again, and Whittaker knew it, ' . ! "We can soon tell," said Grafton, briefly, "by following her trail." Down to the little stable they went; but first Grafton stepped back into Randy's bath and dressing-room,' Yes, just as he thought, there was a note stuck in Randy's mirror, but no woman ly little scrawl, no young wife's cooing confidence to her devoted mate. It was in stout envelope, and the superscrip tion, in a hand that spread itself over the entire face, was formal, indeed menacing: ' i LIEUT. MERRIAM, Private and personal th Cavalry. The captain's face grew quickly grave as he came forth and closed the door behind him. . : "Which way did Merriam head?" asked he of Whittaker a moment later, as the three regathered back of the line. "Straight off to the southwest," said Whittaker, "and here go her tracks by Jove! Straight away for the end of the row and from there?" The two officers looked in each other's eyes a momemt, then strode hurriedly fo the west end of the line. Before them there broad and far spreading, brave in the slanting sunshine, the rolling reach of the mesa toward the Santa Clara. Beyond that valley the slow rising stretch of desert toward the old, old mission miles and miles away. Be yond all, the far foothills and glistening range of the Mescalero. But not toward these did Mignon's dainty foot-tracks lead. Straight as the crow flies they clipped the sandy bar ren when bnce well out beyond the line and hearing of the westward sentry. Straight, swift and sure, like homing pigeon, Floy had evidently shaken loose her rein and bade her pet and precious bear her, swerving never, far at least as strength would last, to where there was ever waiting her the changeless love and pity and protection of the shel tering'arms at the old cantonment, now her only hope of home, CHAPTER Xin. ,! "N word of this to anyone, Whit taker," said Grafton, as they turned away. He was beginning to see through it all. He knew that two ladies of the garrison were calling at his quarters just at that luckless hooir near retreat, when, as he had urged, Merriam went thither and asked for Mrs. McLane. He knew that they had left and gone on up the row while his wife was expostulat ing with Fanny aloft and Randy was waiting below. He knew that one at least of their number would be sure to tell what was occurring, not as a mat ter of malice by any means, but simply because slhe couldn't help telling any thing and everything that she saw and heard. He knew that ' sympathizing women were dropping in every few minutes to see "dear.Florrie" herself, if a possible thing, or to inquire how she was, and he quickly conjectured that one or more of these visitors had let fall the -fatal observation. What Grafton did not know was that such a visitation had befallen after Florence had virtually asked Randy to tell where he had been, and after his hapless fail ure to explain immediately the entire circumstances. It roused the demon of her passionate nature to be told the truth by other lips than his. But thiq There on the imrnmpled bed Just btri she bad thrown tnem. in itself, reasoned Grafton, was not enough to drive Florence into flight. She must have watched for his . later coming, must have seen him go oh, fatal step! for which he, George Graf ton, and no one else, was responsible! away from the path that led to his wife and home, straight to that which bore him to the side of the woman he had loved before ever he set eyes on Floy Tremnine. And thither she, per chance, had followed; butthere what had she seen? what had she heard? There were aching hearts in many households at Sedgwick that cloudless morning, but the man who suffered most was Grafton, The whole truth flashed upon iim as he followed the prints of Mignon's nimble hoof. He would have to tell his wife and Mrs. Hayne, but no one else. . "No word of this to anyone, Whit taker," therefore he cautioned, with a sigh. "Well, I'm not all asinine," was that troubled subaltern's reply, "though I dare say you've thought me so of late." "God forbid that I should judge any man," thought Grafton to himself, 'af ter what I've done this past night. Harriet Grafton was greatly shocked when told her husband's fears, and did not altogether meekly accept his cau tion to keep the secret from Fanny, who still slept the sleep of the innocent and virtuous and clear of conscience. Hop Ling had been told to go indoors, put all the rooms to rights, have the breakfast table set, and breakfast pre pared as usual, and he wondered but obeyed. Mrs. Hayne was speedily aroused by the announcement that Mrs. Grafton was below, and was well aware that something extraordinary had oc curred to warrant a call at so early an hour. Even the children, wearied after last night's vigil, were still sleep. Don' ning a wrapper, she hastened out on the landing and softly called over the bal usters: . "I know you have news for me, Mrs. Grafton, please come up." And in the telling of her tidings, was it any wonder that the younger matron burst into tears? "We must try to make it seem that she has ridden off at dawn in hopes of meeting Randy on his return with the prisoners," was Mrs.Bayne's decision, after she bed recovered from the shock and had beard the whole story; and this commended &elf to Grafton as Wise when his wife came back to him and he had returned from the never-to-bevneglected, "morning stables." And this too was what they intended at first to say to Merriam when he should come in, ravenous for breakfast and aston ished at not finding his wife. But high noon came and brought no Randy. In the words of the acting adjutant, high noon brought only high jinks. Crane, officer of the day, and a dozen other officers had seen Hop Ling's frantic charge across the parade at reveille, and numbers of men had heard his announcement of the general hpgira at Merriam's. Before guard mounting it was known that Mignon's trail led straight away to the upper fords of the Santa Clara far from the direction in which Randy had gone. At ten a herds man came in who said he "reckoned the lady must have dropped this." He saw her riding like the wind the short cnt for Jose's ranch on the old Navajo trail, and he handed over poor Florrle's little traveling bag, which she had evidently strapped to her saddle, never calculat ingperhaps never caring what the strain might be, never missing it when it was gone. They sent it to Mrs. Hayne, who could no longer keep up her brave face but sobbed over itas would a moth er over some prized relic of a lost and beloved child. 1 Then Bux ordered out three of his swiftest trailers and riders and the best light wagon at the post. With the wag on went the post surgeon and Mrs. Hayne, wholefther brood toa neighbor's care. They took with them such drugs and restoratives as seemed necessary, and at noon they were across the Santa Clara on the road to the cantonment, ex pecting to reach Jose's by nightfall and find their runaway darling there, ex hausted by her long hours in saddle and compelled to stay under that friendly shelter, as (sometimes with her father and twice at least with Randy) she had stayed on her journeys to and fro. There she. would have to remain over night until Mignon should be able to go on again with the rise of the morning. star. Meantime the wires from Cimarron Junction had been hot with news, and McGrath, the operator, lived the day of his life, for hours the most important man at the- post. The rioters had got wind of the coming of troops and had sought to block the way by wrecking a freight caboose, in Calamas Gorge. The Riflers swarmed out and had things in shape within the hour, and went whistling on again. Everyone knew trouble would end the moment they got to the scene of the strike, but what might not happen meantime? TO BB CONTINUED. , TOO MUCH DECORATION. Ladles Sometimes Overdvesa la Bom Respects. 'To be out of fashion is to be out of the world," is a saying which it is diffi cult to overcome, to tne satisfaction of the girl who wishes to preserve an up to-date appearance, and we do not blame our girls for having a desire to be apace with the times in their cos'tumes. How ever, we regret that the ladies of the present time are obliged to festoon their heads with such an abundance of dec orations that the beholder is puzzled in his attempts at distinguishing the handiwork of nature among the pro fusion of milinery. It seems to us that this artificial array is a piece .of use less extravagance; and we would ask tbe fair sex to consider how impossible it is for them to add anything that can be ornamental to what is already tbe masterpiece of nature. The head has the most beautiful appearance, as well as the highest station in a human fig ure. Nature has laid out all her art in beautifying the face; she has touched it with vermillion, planted in it a double row of ivory, made it the seat of smiles and blushes, lighted it up and enlivened it with the brightness of the eyes, given it airs and graces that can not be described, and surrounded it with such a flowing shade of hair sets all its beauties in the . most agreeable light. In short, she seems to have designed the head as the cupo la to the most glorious of her works;' and when we load it with such a pile of supernumerary ornaments, we de stroy the symmetry of the human fig- tire, and foolishly contrive to call off the eye from the great and real beau ties, to childish gewgaws.
