For a moment it looked as though they anight cast off their uniforms and, turn ing oat in brrechclout and paint aud feathers, indulge in a genuine old fash ioned war dance on the parade. They were wild to vt their arms and horses and to gallop to the succor of their kins man down the valley, but the lieutenant commanding was a cool hand, and, aided by the persuasive talk of one or two older warrior, measurably quirted the disturbance. Then, as most ot the men on guard begged to be allowed to go with their axuurade, seven of the In diana were distributed among the three reliefs, and Lraht'a men filled all the ether gaps.

Sho Was lieing defrauded. Uncle " no dusiucbs Whatever to senn winy away on such a quest at such a time. It was worse than iucon- siueruie. it was outrageous, and then Mrs. Farrar's face went white again as she asked what Kitty meant, and then Kitty's nerve gave way. and she buried ner benny race on that motherly shoul der and burst into tears. "I tbooght you'd heard." she aohhwl They have only just told me. Captain Farw,ell came home to change his dress. anu I asi-.d Iilm wV re was, and he said he loft him offering his services to Uncle Fenton to ride ahead to the Indians, and be wonted to know if I didn't think Will was a trump. I don't I didn't I think it's siuiDlv h-h-heartless in him!" And then Mrs. Farrar rais?d h.T eves appealingly to Ormsby, and he went without a word. He knew wh-it she ln-oded and hastened in search of WilL He found him at Fenton's, whither he had accompanied the colonel, and where he was still pleading and togging at his tiuy mustache and tramping up and down and biting his nails, while Fen ton. in the adjoining room, was calmly getting out of his dress clothes and into witter held garb. "Would you mind dropping this and going down to the chaplain's and com forting your mother and my sister?" said Orrusby as soon as he could get in word edgewise. "Yes. Go. Will." said Fenton. "and tell her that there is nothing whatever in this affair to worry about. We're merely going to bring old Big Road up here to take Christmas dinner at the fort. There's no chance for a fight or you should go along. Mo. it's useless arguing, my boy. I'd do anything for you that's right, but this is absolutely unreasonable on your part. Now go and tell those two blessed women that you're to remain on guard over them, and they'll rise up and call me blessed at least they ought to. And so, finally, Ormsby got the pep pery young fellow out of the house ami fairly started, Ormsby keeping pace with him as he strode excitedly from the room. "I want you to do something for me. Will," said he in a low tone as tln-y hastened along. "I'm going with the command, and I haven't moment to spare. Give this note to Mrs. Dauuton for me as soon as possible after you reach the house. May I rely upon yon:" And as he spoke he held forth an en- veloiie, evidently snugly rilled, and Far rar took it mechanically and without reply. The boy wus thinking only of his owu disapiMiintmeut. "Do you under stand. Will':" persisted Ormsby. '"It is of great importance that she- should have it before 10 o'clock. V'on won forget?" Aud wondering now, Farrar promised, and Ormsby turned abruptly buck. I wish to the Lord I were in your place." was poor Will's parting shout us the guardsman hurried buck to dress for the night ride. Already the four troops had marched to stables and were saddling. Already there were sounds of excitement over across the river and much scurrying through the straggling street of the cattle town of well mount ed ranchmen and "cow punchers. Thorpe was as good as his woid. Ho was rousing the county with a venge uucp., hoping to ride down the valley in strong force within the honr mid wiud up the whole business" before the cavalry could come to the rescue of theoffending baud. Will could hear the occasional whoop and yell that came ringing over on the still night air, and he was hi a pi.-tr.laut mood 1 ordering on exasperation when admitted at the chap lain s and ushered into the parlor, where Kitty still lay clasped in the mother's arms. She scrambled to her feet tho instant he entered and began an energetic out burst, but the sight of his woebegone race cucckcu ner suddenir. Mrs. i- arrar read instantly the cause. of his gloom and her eyes brightened with rejoicing. "Willy, my boy, then you don't have to go: "Don't have to go!" was the wrath iui answer, "uon t nave to got I've been oil my knees to that stony hearted old rip for the last ten minutes, and he won t let me go. "God bless him!" were tho mother's fervent words. "He knew he well knew what it would cost me to have my only boy torn from me at this time," was the thought that flashed through her mind, and her eves welled with grateful tears, though she could say no more. It was Kitty who restored the social equilibrium. "I won't have you steak ot Lncle teuton m that disgrace fnl way, Mr. Farrar. Von ought to be thankful yon don't have to go, as yon put it. Have yon totally forgot ten our engagement, for tomorrow night?" "Oh, for heaven's sake, Kittv! What is tiiat at such a time as this? There won't be a sign of a dance unless they all get back in time, and I'd rather be dead than left here the first scout the regmient lias after my joining it. " He threw himself disgustedly into a chair, refusing to see his mother's outstretched baud aud for the time being absolutely indifferent to Kitty's reproaches. It was the discovery of this fact thut taught 5l r- s K "TTHli, ni boy, Vien you don't have to her how thoroughly in earnest he was, tanght her that there was something alive in his heart of which she might well be jealous, and for the tint time in ber life the girl stood a little in awe of him, and, relinquishing her purpose sf upbraiding, she turned back. bafHcd and defeated, and took refuge by the mother's chair. "Tell Q8 vho are to go, Willy." said Mrs. Farrar enrreatingly. . Everybody but me and Leale ', HreT'll be off in ten minutes too. Even Jaci OrrcsSy goes, anu Vm ortlrret: absolutely ordered to stay here, as if I were some some taby in arms, nnfit to do duty with my fellows. I'll never forgive Fenton as long as I live. " 'And I'll never forget it," murmured the mother as she gently checked Kitty, once more about to burst into impetnons sp?echl "I'm snr Colonel Fenton bad grave and good reasons for keeping yon here, hit son, and if so tried aud bravo a soldier as Captain Leale can remain without reproach surely yon can." There s just the difference." an swered Will miserably. "Leale has been under fire und on trying duty time and again. His reputation was assured Jong years ago, I'm treated as a boy by by everybody in this garrison, high or low, nod forbidden a chance to do a thing. If you folks want to see that command off, the sooner you get out to the bluff the better." But vou are going to take us, Willy, " said his sister sympathetically. "Kitty and I, at least, wish to see the regimeut. Do you care to go, mother, dear?" she asked anxiously, and then crossing over to her mother sine ocnt aown and kissed her, bat the question was no eoouer askt'd than she would gladly have recalled it "or will you come home now with me?" she hastened to eay. I'll take mother home," said Will. "Go on if yen want to see them start. I don't. That's more than I could pos sibly stand. The chapluiu will take yon gladly enough. " Aud so at last did Miss Ormsby begin to realize that even iu tho eyes of the man she had captivated she was for the time liriug of no account. It was one ot Fen ton 'a fads to have out the bund when the regiment or any considerable detachment cf it marched away, and now, even ut night, he did not depart from his practice. The chap lain hail opened the door to note the progress of tho preparations across the parado. Orderlies with the horses of the officers were trott ing past. The noncom missioned stuff were already moniitiug at the adjutant's cfiice, and over at the bund barracks the gray chargers, the music stools of the musicians, were be ing led into the line. A mounted bund was something that Kirty had never seen, uud curiosity and coquetry combined led her to lend her ear to the chaplain's suggestion that she should come out and see the column ride away and wave a goodby to her admirers among the subalterns. If Will persisted iu his ill temper, there was no sense in staying then-, uud perhaps the quickest wty to bring him to terms was to manifest interest iu his fellows. So. leaving him to the ministrations cf his ' mother, she danced away to the front door, tllis promptly following. The night was still and beautiful, softly hazy and not very cold, and the scene across tho snow covered parade was full of life and animuticu. Lights were dancing to and fro among the company quarters. Two of the designated troops had already marched np from the stables, formed line in front of their barracks and, dit:;njuutiiij.', were await ing the sounding of adjutant's call and the' formation of the squadron. Officers were mounting, every moment along the row uud trotting out to join their com mands, aud pn-sently, from the colo nel's big house on tho edge of the blnff, came three horsemen clad in heavy win ter field garb, nud even in the dim light there was no difficulty iu recoguizing Fen ton's soldierly form. These were joined by the adjutant as they rode out upon the parade, aud then ono of the group came jopging over toward the chaplain, followed by uu attendant or deily. It was Jack Ormsby, uud Kitty fluttered down to the gate to meet him. "Yon aud Acut Lucrctia will have to keep house by yourselves tonight, little sister." said he laughingly as he bent to kiss her goodby. "Corporal Rorkc is to sleep at the house, so that you will not lack for guards. Where's Will?" "He's with his mother iu the parlor and just too miserable for anything," said Kitty, who, now that she conld see for herself the preparation for a march, began to feel fur more sympathy for her lover, if not actually to wish that she were a man and could go too. Ellis, quick to notice Ormsby "s coming, had slipped back within the hall and par tially closed the door. Glancing over her shoulder, she could sec that her mother had left her reclining chair and was lauding fondly over Will, smooth ing his tumbled hair and striving to soothe and comfort him. but it was evi dent that Will was sorely hurt, for he turned away in irrepressible chagrin aud distress and covered his face with his hiuyls. Helen Daunton, forgetful for the moment of her own bitter trou ble, had sought to aid her frieutl in eon-soli-ug the boy, tut it was her first expe rience iu such a ia.se. She had never realized what it meant to a proud and ambitious young soldier to be held in garrison wheu his comrades were being sent to the field, and, finding presently that she could be of little aid, she diew away toward the window to join the chaplain and his wife, who were ga ing out upon the parade, when the stir ring notes of adjutant's call came trill ing through the hazy moonlight, and, with a groan that seemed .to rise from the depths of bis heart, poor Will threw himself face downward upon tho sofa, utterly refusing to be comforted. "Come," said the chaplain iu a low tone, "they will be better Mt t th... selves. Let us go out and see the troops I "u". iiusuiy quitting the parlor, they came suddenly upon Ellis lingering ut the outer door. "Mr. Ormsby was saying goodby to Kitty." she nervously explained, "and I remained here for a moment. He is Mill there." ' Ves, still there, although ho had said adieu to his little sister, and the squad ron was rapidly forming on the parade. Still there and looking now and then beyond Kitty's pretty, pathetic little face, clouded with a trouble altogether nnv to it. Still there, and longing far a sight of the face he loved as be did no other despite all its coldness and aver sion. Theu they came barrrinc forth the oIC uominie and iiis faithici iielp meet, the two young and beautiful women and at sight of them Ormsby suddenly dismounted and passing the reins to his orderly ran nimbly cp the steps and extended his hand. "Good night, chaplain good' night. Mrs. Ransom. We count on eating our Christmas dinner here despite the night marcn. uoca night, Miss Farrar. " ho added gravely, gently. "We still llOllA to lie bore to wish you merry Christmas. Pleas" extend my svmnathies to Will. I know how hard it is for him to star. Good night, Mrs. F Mrs. Daun ton, " he stumbled on, and extended to her the hand which lie had withheld from Ellis. "Oh, pardou me! Did Fur rar give yon a note I intrusted to him for you?" "Not yet, Mr. Ormsby. He ha hanl ly thought of anything but his grief at being retained here," rtell, ask him for it before 10 o'clock. It" aud he was halting pain fully now, for Ellis, withdrawing a pace from the group, was gazing straight into his face "it it explain itself. You'll understand it. Good uight; good night, ail. I must hurry." Aud with that he ran down the steps and out of the gute, mounted quickly, aud without a uacKwnra glance rotte quickly awav to take his place by the colonel's side. Another moment and the adjutant, gal loping out in front cf the long line of horses, had presented the squadron to Major Wayne, and that distinguished officer, cncxpectedlv awake and livelv, lost no time in pielimiiiaries, but broke his command at once into column of lours, ana with tiie nana plaving its joyous march iuusic, and with old Feu ton himself in the lead, away thoy went down the winding road to the flats to tho east. Once out of the garrison the band wheeled out of column and played the troopers by, then trotted back to uusad ulo for the night. Men, women and children, the populace of Fort Frayne, gathered along the eastern edge of the plateau and silently, and in not a few cases tearfully, watched the column out of sight iu the dim, ghostly light, and men little irumpcter Meinecke cams out from the guardhouse aud trilled the martial curfew that sent them shiver ing homeward un ominous Christmas evo tattoo.
