The Return
Of Gypsy.
Copyrighted, 1909, by Associated
Literary Press.
In tlie amethystine haze of an April
morning on the Arizona foothills the
cowboys of Circle II wheeled their
bronchos into the gray dust of the
There was a wild jangle of spurs, a
clatter of restive hoofs, and they were
off like one of the brown whirlwinds
of their own desert to meet Gypsy and
“the boss." who were coming to the
ranch to spend a week.
They had derisively hurled “Arios,
Layne!” at the bronzed young foreman
as he leaned against the corral gate.
They could not understand why he had
persistently refused to join their re
ception committee.
It really was not the coming of Iler
ington, “the boss." that was calling
forth the unusual demonstration, but
the return of Gypsy, their little com
rade of the range, whom they had not
seen for four years. It never entered
their simple heads that two years of
school in France, followed by two
more of travel and society, might
have changed their merry, fun loving
little pet.
She was coming back as she had
promised—that was the dominant con
sideration—and off they went, whoop
Ned Layne, however, knew different
ly. lie had seen her a year ago, and
the knowledge had come to him then.
She was a young lady, and they—and
he— were only cowboys. As he leaned
against the gate he thought of the old
days. He remembered her eyes and
voice on the evening before she de
parted into the world, and he remem
bered how she had said to him;
“Goodby. Ned. Father is going to
give you the place of foreman. Make
the most of your opportunities and buy
out the Bar T. Don’t forget me, Ned,”
and her eyes had been moist when she
suddenly dropped them.
“I’ll never forgot you, Gypsy,” he
had promised stoutly, pressing the
hand that fluttered in his.
“When 1 come home to the ranch I
want you to be hero to meet me,” she
“I’ll be sure to meet you,” he re
turned. Then the train had borne her
away to the new life, so different from
that among the boys on her father’s
Ned Layne and Gypsy Herington had
been great comrades in those care free
days, and if now he was the only one
not riding out to meet her it was be
cause he felt that those old days were
gone forever and would best be for
gotten. There should he nothing on
bis part to remind her of old promises
and old thoughts that could have no
place in her life any more.
Just a year ago Layne had seen her
once at a great hotel in New York,
where the wealthy ranchman and his
daughter wore stopping. He had gone
all the way to the far eastern city for
no other purpose than to see her, hut
the result had been a sadly discourag
ing one, and ho had said farewell to
his dreams. Gypsy, dressed in a be
wildering gown and moving with be
wildering ease and elegance among the
elegant throng that oppressed the
ranchman, was on her way to the
opera under escort of an immaculately
clad young Englishman possessed of
a big title, and Layne was left to he
entertained by her father.
She had asked him to come back and
breakfast with them, hut her changed
bearing and the cool treatment accord
ed to him by the condescending noble
man had nettled Layne. He took the
very next train hack to the land of
sunshine, where people were not proud
and stuck up and did not forget old
On his return the cowboys of Circle
II had besieged him eagerly for news
of their little chum of the ranch.
“Yes, I saw her,” he answered, veil
ing the bitterness in his heart, “and
she’s a great belle in her society togs.
She has a beau. Lord Percy Ellington,
one of those plug hatted chaps, and
she seems to like his attentions all
right. The boss says he followed them
back from Europe.”
Having imparted this information to
the news hungry men, Ned had gone
off by himself under the starlight and
finally abandoned all his old plans and
Ever since that night the young man
had been formulating a plan for his
future which he kept strictly to him
self, resolved to execute the first step
toward it when the owner of the ranch
returned to his own again. According
ly he mounted Muggins, his own pony,
and rode rapidly away across the
brown mesa before the party could ar
From an eminence his well trained
eyes caught the blur of rising dust far
up the trail. Nearer approach enabled
him to recognize the ranch bnckboard
driven by Bob Cat Nick. Seated by
the driver was the trim figure of Gyp
sy. while the stout form of Herington
and a slender man wearing a derby
occupied the back seat. Trailing be
hind or galloping proudly on either
side of the vehicle rode the adoring
cowboys, chatting merrily with their
nld friend.
At sight of the derby hat a frown
irossed Ned’s face, and. putting spur
t the unoffending Muggins, the dis
gruntled young horseman rode off
down the gulch.
“Ellington alongl” he exclaimed.
"Yet what right have I to be surprised
or care for that? No doubt Herington
wants to show his prospective sou-ln
law what a fine ranch he has for his
w’lien be had reached the live oak
thicket quite a distance away he let
Muggins rest. Throwing himself up6n
he ground, he surrendered his mind
co a train of miserable thoughts.
He had lain'there a long time, when
suddenly he was aroused from his bit
ter reflections by the clatter of hoofs
over the rocky trull.
Pushing back his sombrero from his
eyes, be looked up into the smiling
face of Gypsy, seated upon Slap Dash
her favorite pony. t
“And this is the way you keep your
promise?” she said reproachfully.
He scrambled to his foot and. throw
ing one arm across the saddle on his
pony’s back, leaned there till he could
summon self mastery.
“"What do you care, Gypsy?” ho
finally interrogated, his eyes stubborn
ly refusing to meet hors.
Some of the brightness left the girl’s
face as she noted the misery on his.
“Tell me what it all means, Ned.”
she begged. “Why are you not your
self? Why do 1 find you so changed?”
“Changed? Heavens!” and he could
not forbear a gesture of Impatience.
“Hero,” she interrupted in the scold
ing tone of her privileged girlhood,
“we come all the way from New York
to pay you a visit at Circle 11, arrive
and find this on the table,” and she
held up a letter. "What do you mean
by resigning? Why do you want to
leave father's ranch? lie is wild over
it and sent me to find you.”
“I should think Ellington might ob
ject to your riding after me," ho re
marked. his bronze checks reddening
with scorn.
“Ellington?" Then a light broke
over her face. “That funny lord?
Why, Lord Percy is In England long
ago. Finding me too loyal an Ameri
can to buy a foreign title, be ended
the long siege and departed.”
“Who came with you and your fa
ther. then?” he inquired.
“Oh, that was Cousin Cyril, who is
just out <■!’ college and needs the tonic
of our mrn.n tin ozone.”
Slipping lightly from (lie back of
Slap Dash, she came over to Nod and
in her old way put both hands on his
strong young shoulder.
“Now, Ned,” she said, “you won’t
leave Circle 11’. will you? Father needs
“Why did you treat me as you did
in New York?” he moodily demanded
evading (he question.
“Before a stranger and Lord Percy
at that?” asked she, laughing roguish
ly. “If. sir. you had come to breakfast
next morning. 1- 1 might have treated
you otherwise.”
lie turned, facing her squarely.
With one of his strong hands he Im
prisoned both of tiers and bold them
against his breast.
“What would you have done if—if 1
had come?” lie said breathlessly.
Her lovely face went very crimson
under the searchlight of his eyes, but
she answered bravely, “Ned. I’d bare
kissed you right out.”
The foothills looked natural again.
The sun shone with its old time glint
and shimmer upon (he gray desert
sand. lie had no longer the feverish
desire to get away to fresh scenes.
“I’ll stay at Circle II always, Gypsy,
since you wish it.” and. taking his
written resignation from her, ho tore
it into fragments. “Say, sweetheart,’’
he added, putting an arm tenderly
round her waist, “I’ll buy out Bar T
