In spite of the fact that this might be his last chance for a chat with Amy Lawrence. Gray manages to secure duty as officer of the guard, that he may have an opportu nltv to have an Interview with Morton. CHAPTER VI.—Preparations are maoe for sending part of command to Philippines. For some reasons Red Cross officials wish their tables, where they havevbeen lunch ing departing soldiers, moved across plat form directly under the side of the trans port, but the officer of the guard has orders to allow no one to Intrude on that space. However Mrs. Garrison overhearing wish of Red Cross official accomplishes tne end by scrawling a note to the officer. The colonel of tho regiment about to leave ar rives and is surprised to see his reserved space occupied. Joining Armstrong at this momenthe shows him Mrs. Garrison's note. Armstrong turns sharply to where Mrs. Garrison nad been, but she had vanished. Armstrong now learns an important pack age has been taken from Gen. Drayton's tent. The night before an Important pris oner, Morton, had escaped, and Billy Gray, officer of the guard, placed under ar rest. CHAPTER VII.—Board of officers, con vened by Canker, Investigates escape of prisoners from guardhouse. A tunnel from guardhouse to street is discovered. Canker places a sentpy over Gray's tent, intending to hold him for prisoners' ear-ao* xney were never invited out to tear or dinner on the post—solemn functions nowhere near so palatable as the whis pered homage of stalwart young man hood. "Nita is yet such a child she infinitely prefers cadet society, and I always did like' boys," explained Mrs, Garrison. Some rather gay old boys used to run up Saturday afternoons on the Mary Powell and spend Sunday at the Point—Wall street men of 50 years and much lucre. "Dear old friends of father's," Mrs. Frank used to say, "and I've simply got to enter tain them/* Entertained they cer tainly were, for her wit and vivadity were acknowledged on every side, and entertained not only collectively, but severally, for 6he always managed to give each his hour's confidential chat, and on the Sundays of their coming had no time to spare for cadet friends. Moreover, she always drove down in the big 'bus with them Monday morn ing when the Powell was sighted com ing along that glorious reach from Poiopel's island and stood at the edge of the wharf waving her tiny kerchief —even blowing fairjr kisses to them as they steamed away. No wonder Xita Terriss was frivolous and flirta tious with such an example, said so ciety, and its frowns grew blacker when the White Sisters, the Fairy Sisters—the "Sylphites," came in view. But frowns and fulminations both fell harmless from the armor of Mrs. Frank's gay insouciance. Nita winced at first, but soon rallied and bore the slights of the permanent and semi* permanent residents as laughingly as did her more experienced sister. Is'ita, it was explained, was only just out of school, and Mrs. Frank was giving her this summer at the Point as a great treat before taking her to the far west, where the elder sister must soon go to join her husband. Everybody knew Frank Garrison. He had long been stationed at the academy and was man universally liked und respected— even very highly regarded. All of sudden the news came back to the Point a few months after his return to his regiment that- he was actually engaged to "Witchie" Terriss. Hotou the heels of the rumor came the wed ding cards—Lieut. Col. and Mrs. Terriss requested the honor of your presence at the marriage of their daughter Mar garet to Lieut. Francis Key Garrison, —th U. S. Cavalry, at the Post Chapel, Fort liiley, Kansas, November —, lb94 —all in Tiffany's best style, as were the cards which accompanied the invi tation. "What a good thing for old liill Terriss," said everybody who knew that his impecuniosity was due to the exactions and extravagancies of his wife and "Witchie"—"And what a bad thing for Frank Garrison!" was the echo. His intimates knew that he had "put by" through economy and self deuial about $2,000, the extent of his fortune outside of his pay. "She'll make ducks and- drakes of it in the six weeks' honeymoon," was the confident prophecy, and she probably did, for, despite the fact that he had so recently rejoined the regiment, "Witchie" in sisted on a midwinter run to New Or leans, Savannah and Washington, and bore her lord, but not her master, over the course in triumph. To a student of hu man nature—and frailty, that union of faded and somewhat shopworn maid of 27 to an ardent ana vigorous young sol dier many moons the junior was easy to account for. One after another Witchie Terriss had had desperate affairs with Ualf a dozen fellows, older or younger, in the army and was known to have been engaged to five different men at ilillerent times, and believed to have been engaged to two different men at one time. Asked as to this by one of her chums, she was reported to have replied: "Do you know, 1 believe it true I had totally forgotten about Xed Colston before Mr. Forinan had been at the post a week. Of course the only thing to do was to break with both and let them start fresh." But this Mr. Colston, whose head had been somewhat cleared by a month of breezy, healthful scouting, accepted anly in part—that part which included the break. Forinan had the fresh start and the walk over and held the trophy just two months, when it dawned upon him that Margaret loved dancing far more than she did him—a clumsy per former, and that she would dance night after night, the lightest, dain tiest creature in the hop room, and never have a word or a look for him who leaned in gloom3r admiration against the wall and never took his eyes off her. He became jealous, moody, ugly-tempered and finally had the good luok to get his conge as the result of an attempt to assert himself and limit her dances. She was blithe and radiant and fancy free when Frank Garrison reached the post, a wee bit hipped, It was whispered, because oi the failure of a somewhat half hearted suit ef his in the far east, and the Fairy bounded into the darkness of his life and- fairly dazzled him.

CHAPTER IV.—On the way to the re view the Prime party witnesses the cap ture of two soldiers suspected of having been accomplices in the stealing of stores Intended for the soldiers—even of dainties contributed by the Red Cross. had said that Frank Garrison had money. There is no need to tell of the disillu sion that gradually came. Frank found his debts mounting up and his cares in creasing. She was all sympathy and re gret when he mentioned it, but—there were certain comforts, luxuries and things she had always been accustomed to, and couldn't live without. Surely he would not have her apply to papa. No, but—could she not manage with a lit tle less? He was willing to give up his cigaTs (indeed, he had long since done so) and to make his uniforms last year longer—he who was in his day the most carefully dressed man at the Point. Well—she thought perhaps he ought to do that—besides—men's fash ions changed but slowly, whereas wom en's— "Well, I'd' rather be dead than out of style, Frank!" And so it went. But if she did not love her husband there was one being in whom her frivolous heart was really bound up— Nita—her "baby sister," as she called her, and when Terriss, the colonel, went the way of all flesh, preceded only a few months by the wife of his bosom, the few thousands in life insurance he had managed to maintain went to the two daughters. Not one penny was ever laid out in payment of the debts of either the father or husband. Nita was sent to an extravagant finishing school in Gotham, and along in May of the young girl's graduating year, blithe lit tle Mrs. Garrison arrived, fresh from the far west, and after a few weeks of sight-seeing and shopping the sisters appeared at the Point, even half-mourn' ing by this time discarded. Thirteen years difference was there in the ages of the Fairy Sisters, and not a soul save those who knew them in former days on the frontier would have suspected it Mrs. Frank in evening dress didn't look over 20. One lovely evening early in August, just about the time that Cadet Capt Latrobe began to show well to the front in the run for the prize, the two sisters had gone to their room at the hotel to dress for the hop. It was their custom to disappear from public gaze about six o'clock, and when they came floating down the stairs in filmy, diaphanous clouds of white, the halls were well filled with impatient cavaliers in the natty cadet uniform, and the w.omen waiting to see. Then the sis ters would go into the dining-room and have some light refreshments, with a glass of iced tea—and no matter how torrid the heat or how flushed and dragged other w0men might look, they were inviting pictures of all that was ever fresh, cool and fragrant. The two fluffy blonde heads would be huddled close together a minute as they studied the bill of fare, and virtuous matrons at other tables, fanning vigorously, would sniff and say: "All for effect. They know that supper bill by heart. It never changes." All the same, at the bottom of this public display of sisterly devotion and harmony and in spits In the pathway right ahead stood Nita. bending over her with love and pas'sfoo glowing in his handsome face, pleading eagerly, clinging fervently to both her tiny white-gloved hands. Mrst Garrison saw it all in the Hash of a second, the udjutant not at all, for with merry laughter she repeated some words he had just spoken as though they were about the wittiest, funniest things in the world, and looked frankly up into his eyes as though he were the best and brightest man she had met in years— so his eyes were riveted, and the tableau had time to dissolve. All the same that sight gave Mrs. Garrison rather more than a bad quarter of an hour. She was infinitely worried. Not because Pat Latrobe had fallen desperately in love with her charming little sister—that was his lookout—but what—oh, what might not happen if the charming little sister were to fall in love with that, handsome soldier boy. At all hazards, even if she had to whisk her away to morrow, that had to be stopped, and girl looked Tike fielding you na tms very afternoon. For my sake, Nita, don't let it go any further—don't fall In love—here—whatever you do." The younger sister stood at the dress ing-table at the moment, her face avert ed. The Mary Powell waa just round ing the point, and the mellow, melo dious notes of her bell were stilt echoing through the Highlands. Nita was gaz ing out upon the gorgeous effect of Bunset light and shadow on the east ern cliffs and crags across the Hud son, a flush as vivid mantling her cheeks, her lips quivering. She was making valiant effortB to control her self before replying. I'm not in love with him," she finally Baid. "Perhaps not—yet. Surely I hope not, but it looks awfully like it was com ing—and Nita, you simply mustn't. You've got to marry money if I have to stand guard over you and see you do it—and you know you can this minute— if you'll only listen." The younger girl wheeled sharply, her eyes flashing. "Peggy, you prom ised me I shouldn't hear that hateful thing again—at least not until we left here—and you've broken your word twice. You—" "It's because I must. I can't see you drifting—the way I did when, with your youth and—advantages, you can pick and choose. Col. Frost has mines and money all over the west, and he was your shadow at the seashore, and all broken up he told me so when we came here. Paddy Latrobe 1b a beau tiful boy without a penny—" "His uncle—" began Nita, feebly. "His uncle had a sister to support besides Paddy's mother. His pay as brigadier in the regular service is only $5,500. He can't have saved much of anything in the past, and he may last a dozen years yet—or more. Even if he does leave everything then to Lat robe, what'll you do meantime? Don't be a fool, Nita, because I was. I had to be. It was that or nothing, and father waB getting tired. You heard how he talked." The younger sister was still at the dressing-table diligently brushing her shining, curly tresses. She had re gained her composure and took occa sional furtive peeps at Mrs.-Frank, now seated at the foot of the bed, busy with a buttonhook and the adjustment of a pair of very dainty boots of white kid, whose buttons gleamed like pearls. The mates to them, half a size smaller, peeped from the tray of Nita's new trunk. There came a footstep and a rap at the door. "See what it is, Nita, there's a love—I don't want to hop." It was a card—a new arrival at the hotel. "Gentleman said he'd wait in the parlor, 'm," said the bellboy, and van ished. Nita glanced at the card and) in stantly trouble stood in her paling face. Silently Mrs. Garrison held out her hand, took the card, and one quick look. The buttonhook dropped from her relaxed fingers. The card read: "Mr. Gouverneur Prime." For a second or two the sisters gazed at each other in silence. At last the elder spoke. "In heaven's name, what brings that absurd boy back here? I thought him safe in Eu rope." ,- CHAPTER IX. One of the most charming writers of our day and generation has declared that "the truest blessing a girl can have" is "the ingenuous devotion of a young boy's heart." Nine mothers in ten will probably take issue with the gifted author on that point, and'though no longer a young girl in years, what ever she might be in looks, Margaret Garrison would gladly have sent the waiting gentlemen to the right about, for, though he was only 20, "Gov" Prime, as a junior at Columbia, had been ingenuously devoted to the lit tle lady from the very first evening he saw hsr. A boy of frank, impulsive nature, was "Gov"—a boy still in spite of the budding mustache, the 20 sum mers and the barely passed "exam1 that wound up the junior year and entitled him to sit with the seniors when the great university opened its doors in October. Studies he hated, but tennis, polo, cricket, riding and danc ing were things he loved and excelled in. Much of hiB boyhood had been spent at one of those healthy, hearty English schools where all that would cultivate physical and mental manhood was assiduously practiced, and all that would militate against them was rigorously "tabooed." of occasional tiffs and differences, there was genuine affection on both sides, for as a child Nita had adored Margaret, and there could be no doubting the elder's love for the child. Some regi mental observers said that every bit of heart that eldest Terriss girl had was wrapped up in the little one. Neither girl, even after Margaret's marriage, would listen to a word in disparagement of the other, but in the sanctity of the sisterly retreat on the third floor of the old hotel there occurred sometimes spirited verbal tilts that were quite dis tinctly audible to passers-by in the cor ridor, provided they cared to listen, which some of them did. On this es^ pecial August evening Mrs. Frank was in an admonitory frame of mind. They had known Mr. La'trobe barely three weeks, and yet as Mrs. Frank was sauntering around a turn in Flirtation Walk, leaning on the arm of the cadet udjutant, there in the pathway right ahead stood Nita, a lovely littlepicture, with downcast eyes, and "Pat" Latrobe At the coming of his twentieth birth day that summer his father had hand ed him his check of $5,000—the paternal expression of satisfaction that his boy had never smoked pipe, cigar or cigar ette—and the same week "Gov" had carried off the blue ribbon with the racquet, and the second prize with tbe single sculls. It was during the "ex ams," the first week in June, when dropping in for five o'clock tea of some girls whom he had known for years, he was presented to this witching lit tle creature whose name he didn't even catch. "We met her way out at an army post in Wyoming when papa took us to California last year," was whis pered to him, "and they entertained us so cordially, and of course we said if ever you come to New York you must be sure to let UB know—and she did— but—" and there his informant paused, dubious. Other callers came in and it began to rain—a sudden, drenching shower, and the little stranger from the far west saw plainly enough that her hostesses, though presenting their friends after our cheery American fash ion, were unable to show her further attention, and the newly presented— almost all women, said "so very pleased" but failed to look it, or other wise to manifest their pleasure. She couldn't go in the rain. The butler had 'phoned for a cab. She wouldn't sit there alone and neglected. She delib erately signaled Mr. Prime. "The la dies are all busy," she said, with charmingly appealing smile, "but know you can tell me. I have to dress for dinner after I get home, and must be at One Hundred and Tenth street at 7:30. How long will it take a car riage to drive me there? Oh, is that your society pin? Why, are you still in college? Why, I thought—" That cab was 25 minutes coming, and when it came Mr. Prime went with it and her, whom he had not left an instant from the moment of her ques tion. Moreover, he discovered she was nervous about taking that carriage drive all alone away up to One Hundred and Tenth street, yet what other way could a girl go in evening dress? He left her at her door with a reluctantly given permission to return in an hour and escort her to the distant home of her friends and entertainers. He drove to the Waldorf and had a light dinner with a half pint of Hock, devoured her with his eyes as they drove rapidly tliis very evening when they went to- northward, went to a Harlem theater their room Margaret spoke. while she dined and forgot him, and "Nita, if it were only for Mr. Latrobe: was at the carriage door when she I should not care a snap of my finger, but it's you—you!
