THE SUNOS OF SUMMER.
th. many a song the cummer sings, To many a listening heart, When ths foret rlntu with the caroltngs That forth from u bird-throat start. For the youthful oiks there 1 aye a (train Of hope In the vlorant Rtr, While their eyca nre bright and thefr heart are light. And the Future seems bo fair. But another son for the prime of life, Uy the treese la borne along, Like a martial strain Is its bold refrain. Ho valjap. and brave and strong. There is work to do, there arc heights to gain, And crowns for the hero-brow. There are harvests bright for the, reap cr's mlht. And tho golden hour Is now. But the rummer clnfr for the aged ear A sons that Is sweet and low, Llko a distant strain, as it throbs again With Joys of the long ago; 'Tls a palm of praise and a hymn of peace. With its nrsr.orle.i fair and fond, And a chord at last that binds the Past To the beautiful Iteyond. i-Lalla Mitchell, in Farm Jourr.aL L7 'A c-r:nt:PAt- (.Copyright, i8jt, by F Tennyson Necty. . CHAPTKll XIII. And now indeed came for Marshall Dean n time in vUiich he could see a divided duty, A camp of wood-choppers in one of the deep, sequestered valleys of the mountains lind been sud denly set upon by n host of mounted Indians that seemed V.'.o the warrior born of 1 V J axon's teeth, to spring' up frwn the earth, nnd yelling like fiends bore down upon the little guard. Hnpplly for the woodchoppers, but un luckily for Lo, the commander was a cool-headed veteran of the late war who had listened time nnd again to yells us frantic and had withstood charge after charge ten times ns de termined. Most unluckily for Lo the Infantry company was armed with the new Springfield breech-loader, and when the band came exultantly on, having, as they supposed, drawn the fire when full four hundred yards away, they were confounded by the lively crackle and sputter of rilles along the timber in front of them, top pling many a dashing warrior to earth and strewing the ground with slaugh tered ponies. Thot charge failed, but they rallied in furious force. There were only 40 soldiers; they had 600 braves, so on they came ngnin from three different points, nnd again did Powell's sheltered blue-coats scat ter them like autumn leaves before the storm. Thrice and four times did they essay to stampede the soldiers and weep off their own dead nnd wounded, and each time they were soundly thrashed, thanks to cool courage nnd the new breech-loaders. And Pod Cloud, cursing his medicine men, drew oil his baffled braves and the hills that night resounded to their vengeful war vhoops and echoed back the wailing of the Indian women mourning over tho slain. "All well enough so far, Inds," cried Folsom, when he braid the news. "Machpcnlotn is unmnskrd. It's war to the knife now, so for (Jod's sake tend nil the troops you can muster to the aid of those already up there in the Uig Horn. Next time he hits he'll hnve all the Northern Sioux nt his back, you mark my words!" Hut, who the devil Is John Folsom? raid the bureau again. Arrest lied Cloud. Uring his band In prisoners, were the orders to the ogents, nnd the agents called for troops to go and do their bidding. It's one thing, ns I'vo had occasion to say before, to stand ofT with breech-loaders n thousand In dians armed only with old percussion rap xnuskets, squirrel rifles, bows, vlubs and lances; It's another thing for soldiers armed even with the best the market affords, to march Into on Indian position nnd arrest nn Indian chief. Thero were not soldiers enough north of the Platte to do it, and tho war department knew it If the bureau didn't. Hence tho muster ing In force along the river, and the mounting In hot haste of perhaps ten more troops nnd companies, "nowhere near enough for the work In hand, but nil tho nation had within a month 'march that could possibly be spared from other work and work more Important. And there was wrath nt Fmory, where the colonel found himself or dered to send nil his transportation to Fraync forthwith, and ail his remain ing troops except one of foot. "Dam nation!'' I've only got two companies of foot," he screamed, In the shrill trebel of piping senility. "And they meta to rob me of my cavalry, too! C troop Is ordered to b held id readiness for special service. The transportation, consisting of three wagons nnd two ambulances, with the somber company of Infantry, Started next day, however, nnd Dean, with eager expectancy, kept his men In camp, cooked rations ready, am munition pouches filled, arms and equipments overhauled nnd In perfect order, horses examined nnd reshod, ready for tho word that might come any minute and carry him he knew not whither. Folsom and tho girl had to drive back to dinner without Min. Despite the permission sent by the colonel, he would not leave hi troop and go In town. So back they ame In the soft moonlight and rpent A long, lovely summer evening with Mm, while the band played melodious ly ia the fort inclosurc, and the stars twinkled over the peaks of the ICockles In the southern skies. Fol so in spent the hours wiring to Om.nhn I ad eouferiiug MtU such ollicers as he eouM reach. They t Knight the lea son given lied Cloud would end the business. He knew it would only he gin it. IJurleigh, saying that he must give personal attention to the selec tion of the teams and wagons, spent the early evening In his corral, but sent word to Folsom that he hoped to see him In tho morning on business of great Importance. He had other hopes, too, one of them being -Mint now the order to send that big sum in currency to the new stockade would be revoked. He had lost no time in suggesting to the chief quar termaster of the department the ex treme hazard. He quoted Folsom ns saying that before we could send 100 men to Warrior Cap lied Cloud could call 5,000, and the chief quartermas ter, being n man of method and n stranger to the frontier raid, ns said the bureau: "Who the devil is John Folsom? Do ns you are told." Hut that answer only came the following day. Meantime there was respite ami hope. Long lived that beautiful evening In the memory of four young hearts. A sweet south wind had been gently playing nil day and left tho night warm and fragrant of the pines nnd cedars in tho mountain parks. All Fort Kmory seemed made up of wom en and children now, for such few sol diers ns were left, barring tho bands men, were packing or helping pack nnd store nbout tho barracks. From soon nfter eight until nearly ten the mu sicians occupied their sheltered wood en kiosk on tho parade, nnd filled the air with sweet strains of waltz or song or stirring martini melody. For an hour, with Klinor Folsom on his arm, young Dean was strolling up nnd down the moonlit walk, marvel ing over the beauty of her dark, yet winsome face, nnd Loomis and Jessie, stanch friends already, sauntered after f..ra.' For a time the merry chat went on unbroken. They were talking of that never-to-be-forgotten visit to the Point I'appoose's first and of the hop to which the tall ca det captain took the timid school girl, and of her hop card and the distinguished names it bore, as names ran in the old days of the battalion; of Hoy, who danced so beautifully and rode so well he was with the th cavalry now somewhere olong the U. 1'., said Dean nnd of Hillings, the cadet adjutant; he was with n light battery in Louisiana. "Where this Capt. Newhall is stationed," Inter rupted I'appoose, with quick, upward look. "I wonder if he knows him, Mr. Dean." "He doesn't like htm, I'll venture to say," said Dean, "if Newhall doesn't suit you and Jessie, nnd I'm sure I Bhnn't." And then they went on to talk of the lovely dance music they had nt the Point that summer, and how bewitchtngly Klscn used to play that pretty galop "Puckwndjies the very thing for n moonlit night. One could almost see the Indian fairies dancing about their tiny fires. "It was that galop my first nt West Point that I danced with Ca- mwm, Tbey rallied ia furious force. det Capt. Dean," said Poppoose, look ing blithely up Into his stendfnst eyes. "You've no Idea what n proud girl I was!" They were at the upper end of the parade ot the moment. The kiosk was only 50 yards away, Its band lights sparkling under the can opy, the moonlight glinting on tho smooth surface of the dancing floor that an Indulgent post commander had had placed there. Half a dozen young garrison girls, arm In arm nnd by twos, were strolling about Its waxen face awaiting the next piece; and some of them had been importun ing the leader, for nt the moment, soft and rippling, sweet nnd thrilling, quick and bewitching, the exquisite opening strains of "Puckwudjics" floated out upon the night. "Oh, Jess! Listen!" cried Klinor, in ecstasy and surprise, ns she turned back with quickly beating heart. "No, no, indeed!" replied her sol dier escort, with a throb in his breast that echoed and overmastered that In her own. "No time to listen com! It was your first galop nt the Point let it be our first In Wyoming." And In ft moment more the tall, lithe, sup ple, slender forms were gliding about the dancing floor In perfect time to the lovely music, but now her dark eyes could not meet the firo In tho blue. Following their lead, Loomis nnd Jessie joined the dance. Other couples from along the row hastened to the scene. In flvj minutes a lively hop was on at.Kmr.ry, nnd when at last, breathing n littlo hurriedly and with heightened color, Klinor I'olsom glanced up into his Joyous and beam ing face "You had forgotten that galop, Mr. Dean," she archly said, but down went tho dark eyes again at his fervent reply. "Yes, I admit it; but so long as I live I'll never forget this." Small wonder was It that when llur lelgh came driving out nt tattoo for a brief conference with tho colonel, his sallow face took on a darker shade, as he suddenly caught sight of that couple standing nt the moment apart from the dancers, seeing neither thctn nor rnm, hearing for the moment no music but that which trembled In the tones of his deep voice, for Klinor was strangely silent. "Marshall Dean," whispered Jessie that night, as she hugged him be fore being lifted to her seat, "tell me true, wasn't I'appoose's picture In your heart pocket? Didn't that bul let crease it?' "Promise on your honor not to tell, Jess," he whispered. She nodded delightedly. "Yes, and what's more. It's there nowl" .-Early on tho morrow came further news, Troops from Steele nnd Hridger were on the move, but no word came for the cavalrj' at Kmory, and Mar shall Dean, hitherto most eager for field service, learned with Joy he felt ashamed to own that he had still an other day to spend In the society of Jessie and her friend. Hut how. much of that elation Jessie could hnve claimed os due to her every sister whose brother is In love can better tell than I. At eight they came driv ing out to hear the band nt guard mounting, though, to old Pecksniff's pathetic sorrow, he could mount only twelve men nil told. That ceremony over, they watched with kindling eyes the sharp drill of Marshall's troop; that soldierly young commander, one may feel well assured, showing his men, his horses, and himself off to the best of his ability, ns who would not have done under such scrutiny as that. Loomis was with them, but Kli nor drove, for her father had urgent business, he said, and must remain at his office. Maj. IJurleigh, he added, was to meet him, whereat the girls were silent. "If you could have heard the major pleading with that cantankerous old fool nt the fort In Marshall's behalf you would get over your wrath at Durleigh just as I did," said Folsom, to both, apparently, and still neither answered. IJurleigh was evidently persona non grata in the eyes of both. "He tells me Capt. Newhall Is still here, waiting for n train to bo made up to run back to Cheyenne. I'm afraid I'll have to ask him to bring the captain to dinner to-daj'. Do you think Mr. Dean will care to come?" he nsked. "I think he would rather not leave camp," said Jessie, slowly. "Orders may come nny minute, he says." "Yes, I suppose so," answered Fol som, vaguely relieved. Something told him that there was antagonism be tween the young fellow nnd Hnrleigh that would be apt to involve Newhall, too. "I'll ask them both, if you don't very much mind," he went on. whis pering to Klinor. "And will you tell Mrs. Fletcher? How is she this morn ing?" "Just ns usual, papa. " She says she has rather violent headaches once In awhile, and she thinks it prudent to keep her room to-day. Hut I can at tend to everything." Indeed, thought the daughter, she wished she had It all to do. And so Folsom had gone to meet Burleigh, and the girls hnd planned, at least Jessie had, that Marshall nft er drill should ride beside them into town nnd have n chat in the parlor wh'le she wrote to mother in the li brary. Hut a thing hnppened that no one could have foreseen. Just before drill was over nnd while they were still watching It from their seats in the covered wagon, a buggy drove up alongside nnd Mnj. IJurleigh jumped out, gave the reins to his companion, and bade him come to him ns soon as he had finished what lie wished to do at the sutler's. The major's face was perturbed, that of his companion looked black and ugly. It was Capt. Newhall, and something was amiss. The latter barely tipped his hat in driving nwoy, the former heaved a sigh of relief, then turned to greet the girls. Ten minutes passed in constraint nnd awkwardness. IJurleigh felt that he was unwelcome, but his eyes were fixed in fascination on Klinor Fol som, and ho could not go. Presently drill was dismissed, and Dean, nil oglow, came galloping up, his orderly trumpeter following. Not until he had joyously greeted both the girls did he see who was standing by the forward wheel on the opposite side. "Good morning, Mr. Dean," said IJurleigh, affably. "I never saw that troop look bo well." v "Good morning, sir," said Dean, cold ly. Then turned to speak again to Miss Folsom when the buggy came whirring back. "He isn't here, IJurleigh," said the occupant, petulantly. "He's In town, and you've got to find him right off. Come on!" IJurleigh turned livid. "Capt. New hall," he said, "you fail to notice I am with friends." "They arc friends who willbeglnd to get rid of you, then," replied the stranger, thickly, and it was ensy to see that he had been drinking. All the same IJurleigh went. CHAPTKU XIV. Another day Dean nnd Troop Cwcre held in camp awaiting orders for spe cial service, und no orders came. "Old Pecksniff" had an eye for pretty girls, a trait by no means rare in sol diers old or young, and prettier girls than I'appoose or Jessie he had never met. Mrs. Stevens was occordingly bidden to invite them to luncheon that very day, and Dean nnd Loomis were of the part', as were other young people of the post, and, despite the rising war clouds in the north and the recent un pleasantness at Kmory and an odd manner indicative of supprcstcd ex citement on part of both Dean and Loomis, ft very Joyous time they had until the t!atusels had to drive homo to dress, for dinner. Folsom had named six us the hour. IJurleigh, Newhall and the two boys were mentioned as his guests. IJurleigh accepted for self and partner, Loomis for himself, with mental reservation. Dean at once had begged to be excused. After the morn ing's disappcarai.ee. of Hurleigh and "Surly," as Miss folsom promptly named the pair, Marshall had ridden Into Gate City at the side of the Fol som carriage, and was welcomed by the old trader himself, who looked pained when told he could not attend the dinner. "SureIy Col. Stevens will let you off," said Folsom, but that ob viously w as not the reason. "I'm th only officer with my troop," said Dean, "and so cannot ask." Hut when Folsom took his daughter in his arms a little later and Inquired whether there was not some graver cause behind the one assigned Klinor calmly answered that she thought there w as, and that the cause was MaJ. IJurleigh. "llut,daughterdear,"sald he, "that's just one reason I wish to bring them together. Then Dean could see how pleasantly disposed the major Is," and he was amazed when she replied; "Maj. IJurleigh may be pleasantly dis posed, but Mr. Dean is not by any means, nor would I be wero I In his place, papa." "My child," said he, "what do you know nbout It?" "Everything that Jessie knows, be sides what we heard on the train. MaJ. Mr. Dean told her of several things MaJ. IJurleigh had said and done to hit discredit, and no wonder he declines to dine with a man who has deliberately maligned him." "I wish I had thought of that," said Folsom, his knotty hands deep in the pockets of his loose-fitting trousers. "I saw IJurleigh this morning on some business, and he seemed to want to help Dean along. What took him out to the fort, do you suppose?" "I don't know," she answered, grave ly. "He hnd Capt. Newhall with him in quest of somebody who wasn't there." "Ah, yes, Griggs, the sutler. I heard of it," interposed Folsom, fingering his watch chain. "Very possibly. The captain was ugly nnd rude in manner and Maj. IJurleigh very much embarrassed. In deed, daddy dear, I should not be great ly surprised If others of your parly failed to come." 'IJurleigh, do you mean, or his queer guest?" Hut Pappoose did not reply. Sh seemed listening intently, and then with swift, sudden movement darted across to the heavy Navajo blanket portiere that hung at the doorway of a little room back of the library. Iler voice was far from cordial as she asked: To Hfl Continued. DOGS DISTURB SERVICES. Stories with Aniualng: Features About Interruptions of Divine Wor ship In Great Ilrltnln. A Glasgow paper reports that in a rountry church on Sunday forenoon the service was practically stopped for n short time owing to the noise caused by ft couple, of dogs outside which started, worrying each other. A cor respondent who sends us the cutting tells another Scotch story, says the Westminster Hudgct. It wns onco usual for Highland shepherds to take their dogs to church and leavo them outside the pews. Two shepherds at enmity sat on opposite sides of the uisle one Sunday. 43oon after the ser mon began the dogs one a collie nnd the other not seemed to enter Into their masters' quarrel. One tender of the flock and then the other egged on his animal, and each faithful dog obeyed his master. The people at last craned their necks over the pews, and when the dogs actually fought not ft few of the congregation were upstand ing. The minister's patience was tilt I matey exhausted, and so he called to his "hearers" nnd said: "Ah, weel, my britherin, I see ye are more interested in the dog flght than In my 6crmon, and so I'll close the buike nnd I'll bet half n crown on the collie!" There is a story told of a dog who entered church near Sheffield during celebration of holy communion, some years ago, and waited nt the com munion rails ns the worshipers knelt there, os though he, too, ought to bo fed. And l!ev. W. Melland, rector of Port Kynon, Swansea, has recorded this: One summer Sunday he wns preaching in the church of Penrico (an adjoining parish) nnd pointing out to the congregation the marvelous faith of tho Syro-Phonician woman to whom our Lord said: "It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs;" to which seeming rebuff she replied: "Truth, Lord; yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table." While he was uttering these words a large dog entered the church, deliberately walked up the pulpit stairs, stood for a few moments ns if expecting to hear something more about his species, qui etly went down again, nnd left the church. The Trickster Tricked. A card sharper who had evidently been doing the races joined a small group of farm servants In n public, house. Failing to interest the com pany in the mysteries of three-card inonte, he exclaimed, In desperation: "Well, look here, gents; 111 bet anf on of you Ave shillings I can cut tie see of spades, nny of you to shuffle end ar range n deck of cards ns you like," at the same time producing the pack, which ho pushed toward a colored vic tim, who agreed to accept the wager, took up the pack, shuffled thern and then placed them on tho table. The sharper then took his knife and cut his park e'ean through, at the same time laying: "There!

When an aged minister recently re signed his pulpit, there were many ex pressions of regret from persons not connected with nny church. His voice and sympathetic manner had won all hearts. His successor, n more tal ented man, wns noi ab'e to attach the people to him, for he lacked the kindly expression of interest nnd sym pathy that gained the former min ister nn attentive congregation, writes Margaret Merkel, in Housekeeper. In n little village, one Sunday even ing, t he people welcomed the "new minister." One of the old members said: "We have not yet been able to replace one of our good members; she was so useful nnd ever ready to help." The minister, thinking cf a recent death, asked: "When did she die?" The rarely useful woman hnd died 20 years before, and her place had not yet been filled. She was neither ac complished nor educated, only a sym pathetic, good woman, of a charming personality. A few j ears ago a beautiful, gifted woman was taken ill. For years she lived and fretted because of disease. Few people called to see her, or elnced the least sympathy, or desire for her recovery. She was talented, beautiful, drtssed attractively, and none could speak evil of her; Fhe wns a good daughter and sister; but her excellencies seemed as nothing be cause of lack ot sympathy, self-control nnd self-forgetfulness. She re gained her health, nnd became a cyn ic, seeing the world through dark glasses.

Keep the rubber plant clean by giv ing it a soap bath, writes Kben K. Uexford, in Ladies' Home Jour nal. Tall plants can be made to branch by ruling off the tops. Hut young plants growing to the height of three or four feet in cue straight stalk will generally be found more satisfactory, ns they will hare larger, finer foliage than the old branching plants ever have. When growth is taking place use a fertilizer, ns its demands on the soil are great, ond ordinary soils ore not rich enough to supply nil its needs. The secret of the successful culture of the rubber plant consists in nlw a) s feeding it well at the times when n good deal of food is needed ond by this it will be under stood that I refer to its period of growth and never allowing it to be come rootbouud.
