I paid my respects to Colonel Claus, who honored me with a careless nod gaehemt and chiefs of the Oneida* ar rived. and passed before me to greet Colonel John Butler and his son, Captain Wal ter Butler. The Butlers were of a stripe. There was the blank, fixed eye of the night bird in father and son, the deathly grimace to do duty as a smile, the chanical observances of polite compa ny, the compliments, the bows, the car riage of gentlemen, but back of l€ something lifeless, something slow and .terrifying in voice and step—God knows what I mean! Yet- often and: often it came to me that inside their bodies something was lying dead—their souls perhaps. I stood behind Sir William, drawing on my gloves of kldskln, observing th» officers as they came up to join the staff and stand and watch the two remaining regiments marching into the meadow below. 5 They had built a gayly painted wood en pavilion in the meadow for the la dies and Governor Tryon and my Lord Dunmore, and now came the coaches and calashes burdened with beauty "-and tickled and tricked out in ribbons. Behind us the grooms were bringing np our mounts, and I Blyly looked for Warlock, doubting lest he be portion td to some horseless guest.' But there, the dear fellow stood, ears pointed. straight at me and snorting for the, •. caress of my hand on his muzzle. A: "Mount, gentlemen!" said Sir Wil 11am briskly, and up into our saddles we popped, while the trumpet blew from the blockhouse and down in the meadow the long painted drums boom ed out the salute. *. 1 THURSDAY, December 22, 1904. As we entered the meadow at a trot I caught a good, quick picture of the pavilion, with its flags, its restless rows of ladles unmasking, fluttering ker chiefs and fans and scarfs, and my Lord Dunmore, all over gold and blue, blinking like a cat in the sun, and the crimson of the governor's mantle, clasped with gilt, falling from his sol Id epaulets. This I saw clearly, but as we broke into a gallop across the clover the colors ran like tinted fires— the dull reds and blues of the Indians, the shimmer on gorgets and buckles, the rippling flags—yet it seemed as I flew past that I had seen a face up there which I knew well,, yet did not know, like those familiar eyes that look at us in dreams. Surely it was not Silver Heels. But there was no time for speculation now. Our brigade b&nd was marching past, with our head groom playing a French horn very badly and old Norman McLeod a-fiflng It, wrong foot foremost. "Hay foot! Straw foot!" simpered a cornet of dragoons behind me, and I turned on him and gave him a look "Did you say you were hungry?" I whispered, backing my horse gently against the horse of the insolent cor net. "Hungry?" he stammered. "You mentioned hay, sir," I said fiercely. lie turned red as a pippin, but did not reply. There was a sham battle of the troops too. It was a fine pageant and pleased all, and I was sorry when the last cartridge was spent and the bri gade band played "God Save the King." We followed Sir William to the pa vilion, dismounting there to ascend the stairs and pay our respects to the gov ernor and to Lord Dunmore. "Come with me, Michael," said Sir William, wiping his face with his banker till it glistened, and I followed tfop Inflfwiirti. V-7 'v:»V« '. !i V.*S ki By ROBERT W. CHAMBERS v" r.

"Your lord ship will remember Captain Cardigan, who died before Quebec. His son, my lord, and my dear kinsman, Michael. Cardigan, cornet in the Borderers." "Strike me!" simpered Lord Dun more. "Strike me now, Sir William! He has his father's eyes. Sir William!" At this remarkable discovery I bow ed and said it was an honor to be con sidered like my father in any particu lar. "Burn me!" murmured^ his lordship In an ecstasy at my- natural response. "Burn me, Sir William, what a wit he has, now!" And he peeped at me, squeezing his eyes into two weak slits, and laid his snuffbox against his nose. Apparently surfeited with admira tion, he Invited Sir William to take snuff with him then, turning to Gov ernor Try.on, who had just come Into the stall, he fell to smirking and ex claiming and vaporing about God knows what until I, weary.and cloyed, glanced around me at the crowd on the seats above us. The governor passed by with his clanking dragoons, among them the young jackanapes who had presumed to sneer at our yeomanry, and we de livered a pair of scornful glances at. each other which crossed like broad swords. And now my Lord Dunmore's bou doir on wheels drove, up,' and.his pur ring lordship minced off in the midst: of his flame colored Virginians. One. lady there was. In a mask and silvery cloak, who looked at me so long through the eye holes that I felt my heart begin a-beating, and another, too, In mask and rose mantle, who lift ed the linen a trifle, displaying a fresh, sweet, smiling mouth. This one in I rose turned twice to look at me, and It amused me to feel my heart go a-bumping at' my ribs so loud, .for she did truiy resemble Marie Livingston. Sir William and Colonel Claus hadi joined Lord Dunmore In his coach. Sir John and Colonel Butler attached themselves to our Governor Tryon. I, abandoned, rode back to the Hall with a company of Virginians and dragoons, wondering if ever I might acquire sucli, horsemanship as the southerners dis played. Coming to the* Hall, I met Sir Wil liam, whose smiling face grew hag gard at sight of me, and he drew me apart, asking of news from Quider. "He Is not yet dead, sir," I replied, my heart aching for Sir William. For a moment he stood staring at the ground, then, bidding me report to •*rr. Duncan at tne oiocsuouse, wui&ea away to disguise his anxious visage again with the oldest mask in the world—a smile. That night Six William provided a great banquet for our guests to honor Lord Dunmore and Governor Tryon. There were gathered in the hallway and on the stairs a vast company of ladies and gentlemen when I came down from my little chamber to wait on" Sir William. Here was the great Earl of Dunmore in a ring of fluttering ladies, peering, bobbing, tapping his snuffbox, preening the lace on his cuffs, and I thought he resembled one of thpse irksome restless birds from the Canaries in a painted cage. There also'strolled my impudent dragoon lad who had offended at the pavilion, and I will not deny he appeared to be an ele gant and handsome officer. Next I' encountered Mr. Butler and honored him with a scowl, which dis played my country, breeding, it being the fashion among quality to greet one's enemy with more elaborate cour tesy than,one accords to friends. Suddenly it seemed as though the voice of Silver Heels sounded In my ears, and for a moment I stared about me, astonished that she should be here. But I could not find her. Then her voice sounded again, clear as a pebbled spring in all that chatter, and, turning. I saw It came from a young girl stand ing behind me. She was very delicate I and pretty In her powder and patches, truly somewhat pale and lacking in plumpness, but with a pair of great hazel eyes like Silver Heels' and the child's full lips. Certainly she had Sil ver Heels' voice and her trick of widen ing her eyes, too, for now she perceiv ed me, and— "Why, Micky!" she cried. "Sliver Heels!" I stammered, striving to believe my -eyes. What miracle of miracles had set her to grow tall and turn Into a woman in .a single week? In her triumph she' laughed that lough of silver which sounded ever of woodlands and birds, the same laugh, the same gray eyes and the same satin iliurers laid on* my wrist.

Silver Heels seated herself by the big clock. I sat beside her sullenly, and for a time I peered at her sideways. I looked at her small silk covered toes pushing out under her petticoat. "Is the dandelion juice on them yet?" I asked, with piteous playfulness. "Don't talk like that!" she said sharp ly, drawing her feet in, and with that petulant movement the playmate I had oo often bullied slipped away from me forever, leaving in her place a dainty thing of airs and laces to flout me, whom' I knew not, but whom I meant •o be a Tensed on. for at moments as I sat there I could have yelled aloud In my vexation.

My Lord Dun- 5™ I might have taken a pride in her had not all these bobbing pigeons come crowding about to share openly my unconfessed admiration. But they bowed and strutted and posed and flat tered, pressing closer until she was shut from my sight by a circle of coat skirts, tilted swords and muscular calves in silken stockings. I had now been crowded up against our tall clock in the hall and stood there, striving to get a glimpse of Sil- ver Heels, completely forgetting thatj somewhere In the crush a lady with a: iS THE OTTUMWA COUH1EB as to lgnorlng my presence.

Presently I perceived Sliver Heels and Mr. Bevan nearly opposite to us and strove to catch' her eye- Stung to the quick by her indiffer ence to my presence, smarting. in my fancied isolation, I resolved to show her that I cared not a whit for ber or her dragoon. So I loosened my tongue and set it wagging so smartly that I think I astonished Mrs. Hamilton, who had been observing Mr. Bevan with her fixed smile. At any rate, she .gave me a. long,' pleasant stare, and pres ently her fixed smile became very sweet and pretty, although I thought a trifle mocking, "Is it not amusing?" she said coolly. "Here you sit with me when you would give your tow head to be prattling into Mistress Warren's ears, and here sit I at twiddle thumbs, devising vengeance on Mr. Bevan, who belongs to me!" "I thought you had a husband," Bald I, with boyish bluntness. She colored up like fire for a moment, and I was sorry I spoke, but I had my pity for my pains, for the next instant she was laughing at me as though I were a ninny, and I could discover no reason for her mirth. "You are a nice boy, but not very bright," she said thoughtfully. "If after more, too, came a-dancing, pit-pat, till V™ before the madeira," I thought to hear his bones creak In-1 side his white silk, and the dragoon jackanapes was there, having tied up everything with his ribbons save his own long cars, and it infuriated me to see him standing guard protector over Silver Heels, with jealous smiles for all who approached. scarlet ribbon on her arm might be i^telji enfranchised from the children'^ waiting for me. Sliver Heels espied me and came fluttering through the crowd with: "Oh, Micky! Have you seen your lady? Your old friend Marie Llvlntr ston! But she is wedded now. She Is that pretty Mrs. Hamilton from St.' Sacrement. Oh, you lucky boy! All the officers are raving over her! But I asked her If she remembered you, and she said she didn't, so there!" And with that she was gone Into the whirl, leaving me high and dry against my clock and furious over I knew not what. As for this Mrs. Ham ilton, it madded me to hear.of her. I had long forgotten Marie Livingston, save as a name to goad Silver Heels withal. Sullenly dreaming there under the tall clock, and happening to lift my eyes toward heaven for some of its spare vengeance, I perccived on the stairs that sa^ie lady who 'had half raised her sun mask at the review—I 4116 one the rose aaaU-e» coi.us «j- THE OCTOBER TERM 1 if, fV in tfllS way kills it.
