It was an hour later. The ladies had
risen and betaken themselves to the front
piazza: the men remained to smoke a
cigar with their host. The absence of
the legal luminary oddly encngh had
dispelled the atmosphere of glaom'that
hung for a few minutes about the lower
end of the table. He and hi strange
visitors were still closeted, so to speak,
in the parlor, but now they came forth.
Ia some mysterious way every woman
had by this time learned that Mr. Schon
berg was there, and at the sound of the
opening parlor door and of the melliflu
ous accents of that gentleman's voice
they instinctively huddled to the other
end of the piazza. Lawler walked with
the two men as far as the gate, and when
they finally disappeared in the direction
of the store came sauntering ba:k to join

"Never. What ia it you are smiling
"Have you ever read the works of

"I have no time to waste on nonsense,
Miss Marshall. And I never could see

Billings and Artemus Ward."
"Well, it wasn't his fun I was think

lady musingly, as she still gra ely looked
him over with her big eyes.
Two young officers came strolling
along the walk at the moment , and pass
ing beneath the lamp raised their caps
in salutation to the ladies. Miss Mar
shall nodded and smiled with marked
"All wasted. Miss Marshall; they
could not see it."
"No, colonel, and I particularly want

smile; "and yet, do you know, Tm ready
to stake my professional reputation that
one of them at least is quite unworthy

"Now, are you not a trifle prejudiced,
colonel? I thought the law presumed a
man innocent until proven guilty."
"Theoretically, yes; practically, men
who have studied human natire through
the courts, as I have had to, get to see
through the veneering of high tone that
these 'youngsters' are so apt i;o assume."
"And so you are probably quite ready
to agree with the correspondent of The
Palladium, colonel, that most officers
are frauds, especially the second lieuten
ants?" "My experience has certain ly not given
me a high opinion of the loung men,
"And now. do you know, colonel, my

"But is your intuition a3 well founded,
do you think, as long lesral exnerience?"
"Well, your experience has been con

At this moment the officers came saun
tering out into the open air, joining the
group of ladies, who had fled back to
tho western end of the piazza as soon as
they saw their obnoxious visitor safely
anchored by Miss Marshall's side.
"Where's Lawler?" queried Morris in
no pleasant tone. " Has he gone off with

son in law which this young lady is so

flushed at the discourtesy in his tone,
but gave no other sign. "I shall ex

counselor yet, Miss Marshall."
"Very well, colonel; if it ever comes
to that I shall fall ba.-k 0:1 my intui

eland her eyes had a dangerous gleam
under their dark and fringing lashes
when she stepped a moment after into
the lately desecrated parlor.
"You appear to have had quite a tilt

Lane, who had como in for more cigars
for his guests. "I think I onco told you

There was sudden lull in the conversa

colonel spoke quickly:
"I wonder what that can be. That
fellow yells in earnest, doesn't he?"
"What is it?" asked Lane, stepping to
"No. 8 yelling for the corporal of the
guard. Yonder they go."
Capt. Cross, who was officer of the
day, had quietly picked up his sword
and hurried out of the southwest gate,
while down the roadway could be heard
the sound of rapid footfalls. The call,
however, was not repeated. Conversa
tion soon became brisk and general, and
in five minutes Cross came back.
"What was the matter?" asked CoL

"Their buggy was tied the other side
of the store, sir, and no one at the guard
house could see them start."
"Well, the sentry ought to have let
them go anyhow as soon as ho saw who
they were. We have no authority to
hold civilians here."
"It wasn't tho civilians the sentry was
after, sir; he was perfectly willing they

"Do yon wish to know the quickest
way to cure a severe cold T Wo will tell
yon. To cure a cold quickly, it must be
treated before the cold has become set
tled in the system. This can always be
done if you choose to, as nature in her
kindness to man gives timely warning
and plainly tells yon in nature's way,
that as a punishment for some indiscre
tion, you are to be afflicted with a cold
unless you choose to ward it off by
prompt action. The first aj mptoms of a
cold, in most cases, is a dry, loud cough
and sneezing. The cough is soon foU
lowed by a profuse watery expectoration
and the sneezing by a profuse watery dis
cbarge from the nose. In severe cases
there is a thin white coating on the
toDgue. What to doT It is only neces
sary to take Chamberlain's Cough Rem

will greatly lessen the severity of the cold
and in most cases will effectually counter
act it, and cure what would have been a
severe cold within one or two days time.
