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
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
"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

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. "
The Lieutenant " 11m veal ways liked
you , sir. You nro the father of the girl
I love , and the characteristics 1 love in
her must also oxlst in you. "
Incidents In tlm I tuny 1,1ft ! of Gonornl
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
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.
