LUCR OF LIEUTENANT LAKE * , Lrow The Tide of His Affairs Turned to Foittmb and Love's ' Htward.

JJnlt in 7'Vrtiifcwile's. . It was known all over the post within half an hour uftor the occurrence. CHI- core , soldlora , civilians , servants , troop laundresses , oven the Apaches In the camp down the rlvor , I fancy , know about It , and they all had moro or loss to say about It ; the general verdict bolnp that it was ft shame that the colonel ought to lot him off , and that ho was the finest follow In the world , any- way. It WIIH a singular thing that two such popular men as Jack Lake of the old old th cavalry , and the lieutenant colonel of thatsamorogimont , familiarly known ( behind his hack ) as "tho old man , " but drawing his pay under the nano and title of Lieutenant Colonel Theodore 13rown , should not ho able to got'along together. Uoth of thorn wore adored by the olllcors and men of the regiment , and ( shall I say it ) by a good runny of the women. The ono was a rollicking young lieutenant tnll , handsome , tilented , and bravo to recklessness , juat an a cavalry licuton- nnt should bo. The other was one's bonu ideal oi a field olllcor of cavalry , * till a strong , hearty man , although ho had seen much hard service during the war and on the plains ; n man who never shirked a duty and , what was moro , mivor permitted any ono else to ; a hard worker and a just though severe post commander. In a word , the kind of man the authorities usually sent to dangerous - ous posts and such a post was Apacho. It had nil come about some vcars before - fore , at West Point. Lake had boon a cndot at the military academy while Colonel Drown was tlio commander of cadets , and the older man had , to use a little West Point slang , "got the equa- tio'n" of the younger man "down flno. " In other wordo , ho had "sized him up" and concluded , rather rashly it must bo admitted , that Lake was utterly worthless except for the purpose of raising the deuce whenever ho so de sired. This , it must bo admitted , ho could do to perfection. It wt > s not Lako'a fault , however , that they could not get along together. Oh , nol Lake ooulu got alonjr with any one , and ho could not sco for the Hfo of him why the colonel did not enjoy his pranks as tnuch as ho and apparently everyone elbe did. Hut the colonel did not , and the result was that Lake was undergo ing punishment most of the time ho was a cadet at the academy. Well , when a superior officer In the army dislikes an inferior it is usually very disagreeable for the inferior oflicor. And it is probable that Lake suffered a good deal moro than the commandant. Hut ho never complained and never tried to reform. Perhaps ho rolled on ontlroly different tactics. It was said tlmtLako was really in love with the colonel's daughter. It was not improbable. Most of the cadets wore. Indeed , few who hud over met Miss Hyacinth Brown were not in love with hor. But she was a queer giri after all. Poor girll siio had been a half orphan from her early girlhood and perhaps she inherited boino of the obstinacy of her father. Strange as it may seem , she loved thisBauio scape grace. Lako. It is moro than probable that the discovery of this fact , coupled with what ho know of the youngster's character ( or thought ho know ) , was but added fuel to the lire. It was hard to toll , though , for tlio colonel had always boon hard on Lake and remained so. Ho did but ono thing in regard to it. Ho forbado. Lako's culling on his daughter and ho insisted that slio leave him entirely alone. Well , everybody knows moro or less about human nature. The interference of the father merely inndo the young man more determined to make love to the daughter , and the young lady but the moro anxious to receive - coivo that lovo. The young lieutenant made matters all the worse when ho graduated and re ceived his commission by voluntarily joining the cavalry regiment of which Hyacinth's father wtib the lieutenant- colonel. Most youngbtors would have hesitated at such a step. It is no agreeable - able thing to have a superior olllcor of ono's own regiment down on one. But it was preclbuly Lako's btylo. If ho were to join another regiment ho might as well nay good by to the girl , and ho hadn't the slightest intention of doing that. Ho loved her honestlv , and that was all there was about it. lie Intended to marry her if she intended to marry him and , bless her soul , shodid. It was just Lako's luck to bo assigned to a company that was stationed at a post commanded by the father of his sweetheart. Good luck , ho thought it , because it kept him nearer horbid ; : luck , all iiis friends thought it , because it leapt him in the power of nis unreason- liitr onumy. Forbidden her father's house , constantly under her father's Dyes , what could ho BCO of tier , unywayV Uld ; hoj over see hoc , any way 'i Well he was L iko , you know. And ho was put in arrest for what ? For a vorv grave offense. Hyacinth's father was a man who would 'not Imvo Konq out of Ills way to do L-ilvo an in jury. On the contrary , if L'iko had not always offered the occasion tlio colonel would have loft him alone. Even the colonel rccogni/.od the younyator'u good qualities. There was that time in tlio lioroalmo campaign when ho made ti ride on duty , unaccompnnlo.l , of eighty miles through hostile country in loss than twenty hours. And there was the occasion whun he risked his own lifo to B.IVO that of a woundud corporal In the light down in the San Sauioano valley. Hid gonernl otlloiomty in thu field , his willingness * to perform duty no matter how hard it was , were all in his favor. Hut when there was neBO BO lous duly to perform ; whan It was a inuru matter of post duty or com pany disci plum , Lake and iho colonel coutil never tigreo. Ho was always breaking regulations and post otders himself , and always trying to shield mon In his company from just punish ment for doing the same thing. To bo euro thuro wasn't a man in his company who could not have buon trusted , when it waa a maltor of nucopslly , around the world if neud ho , but dibcliillno id disci pline mid poor Ltiko could not got it through hia head. Ha was nut in arrest because. , with his usual impuduuco , hu had entered thu presence of the colonel ono morning as . ho ma clicd olT duty as olllcer of the j day and reported that hu had not in spected the guard the preceding night I hotwoon "midnight and broad daylight.1' | Ho It known thutovory olllcor of the day \ Is required to perform thlb duty during IHoau houra , and if hu duod not hu is , iv I they say in the army , "on honor" to re port himself for his failure to do so. bo ho did nothing more than was required of him. But lie olTored absolutely no explanation of his conduct , even after hovni questioned by Iho colonel. .Arrest mcnnt , with the colonel , charges and a court martini. They meant moro than that They mennt sure punishment of ascvorp description. And so every ono on the post bul the colonel himself was poroly grieved and who knows but that the colonel himself was a trlllo sorry ? Hyacinth's love for Lake wns the only thing that had over threatened the perfect love of father and daughter in the colonel's small household. Ho had novel-spoken to her about It. Ho merely guessed It , She had never told him. ' Whun ho had forbidden Laku's calling 1 on her ho had Informed his daughter 1 of the fact , that was all. lie did not buliovonhu would over sco hlmngain , but lie did not warn her not to. How serious it all wns to her ho did not know. She was not the kind of a. girl to niopo and cry. Indued , she wns too proud a girl to protest. The matter had simply b on dropped by thorn during the remaining years at thoacaaemy and tlio few years at Apache , and whether even Lake himself still hold on to the old attachment the colnnul dla not know. IIo supposed not. These things nro o.isily forgoi/ton by most mon. The colonel merely considered It unfortunate that Lake had joined Ills roglmont and had been assigned toh'is post. Ho never dreamed that Lake had anything to do with gutting there , and that the cause waslIyacinthandLako'sunforgottonlovo for hor. The colonel presumed that the young pcoplo had often mot in the small society of. the post. Never had t'loy mot in hit ) presence , though , for Lake always carefully avoided the colonel. It wns a cut botwotm them. Of course , the youngster was too high strung to bo re fused admittance to a man's house and Htill keep uj ) a speaking , , acquaintance- with that man , even though hu were his commanding olllcor. Tlioro were these in the regiment who said that if Lake would ollor the opportunity the colonel would bo glad to ronuw Iho amicable re lations that had once existed between them , always , however , with the under standing that Lake was to consider his suit for Hyacinth's hand a thing of the past. When the matter was broached to Lake ho jravo a snort of disgust and refused to reply. On the morning of the arrest Miss Hyacinth had a visitor of a cla s shodid ' no't often meet. Ho came to the back door and asked permission to see her in the kitchen. It was Sergeant Connor of Lako's troop. Ho was ono of the bravest and host noncimunitisionud olllcors in the regiment , and was ono of LaKo'sespacitil favorites. Ho wns a young Irishman , and , like almost all Irishmen , a splen did soldier in the Held and a hard ono to handle in garrison. Lake had pulled him out of the fire many ana many a time. IIo had boon sorgoant-of- the-guard the previous day and haa just had time to "march ofT , " as they say when the old guard is relieved by the now guard , got over to his barracks , chaiigo his clothes and 11 x himself up a bit Ho waited at the door of the kitchen for Miss Hyacinth to appear. She know at once something was wrong when notified of her unusual visitor. That it was somothi * ' ? nboul Lake she did not doubt. She tried to bo calm , however. It does not do to lot the mon know too much about the private affairs of the families of the olllcors. They usually know it all , however , 30 itmight save a good deal of trouble to notify them at onco. "You wish to see mo ? " said Hyacinth , trying to look unconcerned. "Yes , miss , " answered the young sergeant , looking painfully embar rassed. "What is it you arc Sergeant Con nor , I think ? " "Yes , Miss , and it's about Lieu tenant Lako. " She blushed she couldn't help it. She wanted to reproach the man for in trusion , but sno could not. It was an allair of Lako's. Ho was probably in trouble again , and she must know what the trouble was. "Well"sho continued. " what is the matter ? . It seems a little straugo to mo that you should como to see mo about an alTair of Lieutenant Lako's. " "I came bccauso I thought you loved him , " said the hot-blooded young Irish man. , unaolo to appreciate the girl's at tempt at unconcern. She did not answer , and ho was about to move away , angry in earnest , when she Biiclt : under her breath : "What is it , sergeant ? " "Ho is in arrest , miss. " "In arrest ? " she repeated. "What for ? And who put him in arrest ? " l'Tho colonel , miss , put him in arrest thi smorning. Ho didn't inspect the guard lust night , and it was nil my fault , miss , and I want to help him out , and the only way I could do it was to como and give you this and ask you to read It and got the colonel to read it. I know it was all my fault , miss , and I supposed you would do everything you could for Lieutenant Lako. 'Most of us would. " Ho handed her a paper on which were witton a few words in pencil. She recognized the sergeant's handwriting , and bho road it immediately. There was a little tear In her eye when she looked up to thank the sergeant , but ho had gone. No ono has n finer apprecia tion of delicacy than an Irish sergeant The colonel know that the Lake alTair had reached his daugh tor's ears the mo ment ho entered the house that aftor- noon. Ho know her temperament very well , and ho did not expect that aho would say anything about it. She was a very brave llttlo irirl , and she had never protested or complained against anything * ho has over done. However , ho know that she had been crying and her very alienee on the subject , accus tomed as lie was to her nature and her ways , nuido him all the moro unoasv. Ho had really como to the conclusion that Hyacinth hnd givoii'L-iko up for- ovur. Ilu know now that lie w.vs wrong. Dinner misced in silence. The colonel grow moro uncomfortable every mo- munt Ho had done nothing but his duty in it all. Ho had dime nothing but his duty when ho told Luke to cease call ing at his house. Lake was a young scapegrace , and would sooner or later got Into serioud trouble. Ho was no man to make his daughter happy as her hus band. Andyothowas forced to admit that there was something about Lvko I that lie himself was compelled to ad- ' mire. And ho know that whllo Lnko homi'timos failed in his duty as a soldier ho had never boon known to fall in his duty as a mun. Aftoauppor the colonel tried to rend his latest Kansas City p.ipor. IIo found that It was utterly uninteresting. IIo tried to onjny his ovonlng cigar. The brand had uuddonly become a worthless one. IIo wished that homo of thu olll- cers would call on him. It scorned slratijio that none of thorn aid. IIo wondered - dorod if they were nil around at Llou- tunant L-ikoVi quarters trving to ohoor up that young mun , If , indued , ho needed it Ilia daughter was in thu room. Ho turned to her almost petulantly and naked her why she WUH so silent. She roio from hur Boat and wont to him. There is but ono thing a daughter does to u fatnor when she wants to got him to do something for her. She puts her arms around his neck and kisses hluii This wad what bho did. "I was just going to say something , I want you to rc.id this. " Shu hold before him a paper Iho same that had boon ijlvcn her by Sergeant Connor. The colonel wiped his oycgiassos and wild the following : ' It It all infntilt tint Motitcnnnt I : iko ( tliln't In'prcl. the trunnllfnt nlRht. 1 nm * nro It wiis.

" And Sergeant Connor carried his point , although ho was not punished himself ( It was said about the post that Sergeant Connor promised all sorts' of reforms ) and , slngulnrlv enough , a great 'jhango took place In the colonel at the same time , and even a greater ono In Llcutonant Lake himself , for It was not an hour after his release from arrest that Lieutenant Lake was link ing a long call on the colonol. The wlfo of the post adjutant happened to bo passing the colonel's quarters as tlio two men were conversing on the piMzza , at the end of the call , and she was positive , she afterward said , that she heard the followlnir fragment of conversation between - twoon them : Tito Colonel "Woll , my boy , you have waited u long time , and I suppose that your wishes and Hyacinth's should bo l-cspectcd in the matter. Wo will sot the wedding for month after next. " The Lieutenant-"Thank " - youcolonel. The Colonel "And now that I have learned to like you , my boy , you In your turn must learn to like mo.

Incidents In tlm I tuny 1,1ft ! of Gonornl Singleton. Baltimore Sun : General James W. Singleton , ox-congressman , once presi dent of the St. Louis & Wabash railroad , and in his day ono of thu most extensive owners of flno horses in the country , is lying critically ill at the residence of his son-in-law , Mr. Francis W. Thomas , ! )40 ) North Calvort street. General Singleton is in his 82d jear. General Singleton's father was General - oral James Singleton , of the war of 1812. The son , whoso title came came from the Illinois militia , was born at the family county scat , Paxton , near Win chester , Vn. Ho was the only son in a family of eleven children , and was left fatherless at the ago of 3 years. Ho was educated at Winchester academy. In 1834 ho married a Kentucky lady and moved to Mount Sterling , 111. , then n virgin wilderness which the Indians had jiibt loft. Ho studied medicine and began to practice there , but the sparse settlement - mont of the locality caused him to give up medicine and study law. IIo was successful in law , and won the celebrated libel pult of Morrison against Brooks , of the Quincy Herald , in which it was a foregone conclusion that largo damages would bo awarded. A vordiui of 1 cent was obtained , and Morrison left the locality , where he wns thereafter known as "Ono Cent MorrioOn. " Among the lawyers ho encountered were Abraham Lincoln , Douglas.Brown- ing , Justin and Buttorfiold , and ho gained his point in the settlement of n railroad case against Lincoln. Ho gave up law at the outbreak of the war on account of the rigor of the oathd re quired. General Singleton wns originally a whig. Ho was active in the Douglas senatorial campaign of 185S and the po litical movements preceding the presi dential election of 1850. Ho was a mem ber of the constitutional convention of 1847 , a doiogato to the national presi dential convojittoo of 1848 and n mom- bur of the Illinois legislature before the civil war. Hu served two terms in the national house of representatives. In ISCo President Lincoln , desirous of reaching the southern leaders ana bring ing about peace , instructed General Sin gleton with a misbion to Richmond , and there ho went four times and con ferred with JofTorson Davis and others. Before the war General Singleton had 1,700 acres of land near Quincy , which ho devoted to stocic growing. Ho wns the owuor of the stallion Silver Heel , the greatest hor&o of his day , that had belonged to Commodore Vanderbllt. General Sin/Jloton / , while president of the St. Louis & Wabash , had traveled all over tlio country seeking for nn equine king , and full in love wltn Silver Heel nt the tyow York agricultural fair. Commodore Vandorbllt told him ho would not soil thu stallion for $500,000. Not long after the Wabash" stock took a sudden "boom7 , and Vanderbilt walked in upon President Singleton and asked bluntly when ho was going to lot Wabash drop. General Singleton evaded the q'uostion. "Woll , look bore. " said Vanderbllt , " "you want Silver Heel , don't you ? " "Yes. " "Well , toll mo when Wab'ish is going to drop and the horse is yours" The prosldent said : "Sell when it roaches 85. " Wabnsh went to 85 , Vandorbllt un loaded , and in a short time Silver Heel arrived in Illinois. Silver Heel was entered shortly after in an exhibition in which $10,000 wns offoiodasa premium by a jockey club which had bought the stallion St Law rence for that nmount. Mnmbrino Chief , the property of James Clay , of Kentucky was also entered. The pre mium was awarded to St. Lawrence for spcod , Silver Heel's owner declared bo had entered for style and action only , and that ho could have shown bettor speed than St. Lawrence , but wns told speed was not to bu a point of contest. Hu olTorod to nice for $10,000 a side and put up $10,00 ! ) a fide also to go to tlio club. This was declined ; but , MOO and a cup were made the prices which Silver Huul won , together with the $10,000 pre mium , hia driver , Abrnms , putting him ahead four times as they passed thu stand on thu six mile track.
