COPvmuMT, 1694 BY'THl
Before guard mounting, almost half
ui hour before his usual timo for np
puiu'iug nt the offlee, Colonel May
wi'd hurriod into his desk, sunt tho or
icrly for Captuiu Chester, and then tho
jlerks in tho sergeant major's room
heard him close and loek tho door. As
Hie subject of tho shooting was already
indcr discussion among tho nieu there
issombled, this aetioa on tho part of
tho chief was considered highly signifl
sant. It was hardly live minutes before
Chester came, looked surprised ut find
ing tho door locked, knocked and was
Tho look on tho haggard face at tho
Jusk, the dumb misery iu tho eyes, tho
ivrath and horror in it all, carried him
baok 20 years to that gloomy morning
in tho casemates when tho story was
passed around that Captaiu Maynard
bad lust a wife and an iutimato friend
ilqring tho previous night. Chester saw
It u glance that, despite his precau
tions, the blow had come, tho truth been
revealed at ouo fell swoop.
.''Lock tho door again, Chester, and
jomo here. 1 have suino questions to ask
Tho captaiu silently took the chair
which was indicated by a wave of tho
tolonel's hand and waited. For a mo
ment no word more was spoken. Tho
Did soldier, white and trembling strange
ly, reseated himself tit tho desk and
covered his face with his hands. Twieo
aj drew them with feebly stroking
movement over his eyes, ns though to
rally tho stunned faculties and faco tho
trying ordeal. Then a shiver passed
through his frame, and witli sudden lift
Df the head he fixed his gazo on Ches
ter's faco and launched the ouestiou:
"Chester, is there any kindness to a
man who has been through what I havo
iii telling ouly half a tale, as you have
The captain colored red. "I am at a
loss to answer you, colonel," he said
after brief reflection. "You know far
nioro than yon did half an hour ago,
and what I knew I could not bear to tell
you as yet."
"Aly God, my God! Tell mo all and
tell mo nt once. Here, man, if you need
stimulant to your indignation and can
not speak without it, read this. I found
it, open, among the rose-bushes in tho
garden, where sho must havo dropped it
when out there with you. Read it.
Tell me what it means, for, God knows,
I can't believe such a thing of her. "
Ho handed Chester a sheet of uoto
paper. It was moist and blurred on tho
first page, but tho inner pages, though
damp, were In good condition. Tho
first, second and third pages were close
ly covered in a bold, nervous hand that
Chester knew well. It was Jerrold's
writing beyond a donbt, nd Chester's
face crew hot as he road, and his heart
turned cold as stono when ha finished
the last hurried line:
My Daiiuxo I must see you. If only for a
moment, before you leave. Do not let tills
alarm you, for the more I think the more I am
convinced it Is only a bluff, but Captain Ches
ter discovered my absonce early tills morning
when spying around as usual, and now he
claims to have knowledge of our secret. Even
If he was on the terrace when I got back It
was too dark for him to recognize me, and it
seems impossible that ho can have got any real
cjuv. Ho suspects perhaps, nnd thinks to
force mo to confession, but I would guard
your name with my life. Bo wary. Act as
though there worn nothing on enrth between
us. and if we cannot meet until then I will bo
at tho depot with the others to teo you off, and
will then have a letter ready with full particu
lars and instruction:!. It will be in tho first
thing I linnd tn you. Hide It until you can
safely read it. Your mother must not be al
lowed a glimmer of suspicion, and then you are
safe. As for me, even Chester cannot make
the colonel turn against me now. My jealous
one, my fiery sweetheart, do you not reallzo
now that I was wise In showing her so much
attention? A thousand kisses. C'omo what
may, they cinnol rob us of the past.
I fear you heard and were alarmed by tho
(hots just after 1 left you. All was quiet whoa
1 got home.
It was somo seconds beforo Chester
could control himself sufficiently to
speak. "I wish to God the bullot had
gono through his heart !" he said.
"It has gono through mint through
mine! This will kill her mother. Ches
ter," cried tho colonel, springing sud
denly to his feet, "sho must not know
it Sho must not dream of it. I tell you
It would stretch her in the dust, dead,
for sho loves that child with all her
strength, with all her being, I boliove,
for it i3 two mother loves in one. Sho
had a sou, older than Alieo by several
years, her firstborn her glory ho was
-i-but tho boy inherited tho father's pas
sionate and impulsivo nature. Ho loved
a girl utterly beneath him and would
have married her vhon he was only 20.
There is no question that ho loved her
well, for he refused to give her up, no
matter what his father tl ireatened. They
tried to buy her off, and Bhe scorned
them. Then they had a letter written,
while he was sent abroad under prctenso
that he should have his will if ho camo
back in a year unchanged. By Jove, it
seems sho was as much in love as he,
nud it broke her heart She went off and
died somewhere, and ho came back
ahead of time because her letters had
ceased and found it all out. Thero was
an awful cotne. Ho cursed thorn both
father and mother and left her sense
less at his feet, and from that day to
this they never heard of him, uover
could get the faintest report It broke
Eenwick killed him, I guess, for he
died in two years, and, as for the moth
er, you would not think that a woman
to apparently full of lifo and hoalth was
iii desperate danger. She had some organic-
troublo with the heart years ago,
they tell hbr, and this experience has
developed it so that now any great emo
tion or sudden shock is perilous. Do you
ndt see how doubly fearful this oomes
to us? Cliester, 1 have weathered one
awful storm, but I'm old and broken
now. ' This tMa beats ma Toll me
what to do. "

very moment I picked it up, lying open
as it was right there among tho roses,
the first words staring mo in tho faco.
I meant not to read it never dreamed
it was for her ai;d had turned over tho
pago to look for tho superscription.
There was none, but thero I saw tho
signature uud that postscript about the
shots. That startled me, and I read it
hero just beforo you came and then
could account for your conduct some
thing I could not do before. God of
heaven, would any man believe it of
her? It is incredible I Chester, tell mo
everything you know now oven every
thing you suspect. I must sco mv way
And then tho captain, with halting
and reluctant tongue, told his story
how ho had stumbled on tho ladder
back of the colonel's quarters and
learned from Ku 5 that some ono had
been prowling bade of bachelors' row;
how ho returned thero afterward, found
tho ladder at the side wall aud saw tho
tall foiui issue from her window; how
ho had given chase and been knocked
breathless, aud of his suspicions and
Leary's as to the identity of tho stran
ger. Tho colonel bowed his head still deep
er and groaned aloud. But ho had still
other questions to ask.
"Did you see any one else at tho
"Not while he was there."
"At any time, tlicn before or after?"
And tho colonel's eyes would tako jio
"I saw," faltered Chester, "nobody.
The shade was pulled up, while I was
standing there, after I had tripped on
tho ladder. I supposed tho noiso of my
stumble had awr.keiiod her."
"And was that all? Did you see
"Colonel, 1 did see afterward a wom
an's hand and arm closing tho shade."
"My God! And sho told mo sho slept
tho night through never waked or
heard a sound!"
"Did you hear nothing yourself, colo
nel?" "Nothing. When she camo home
from the parry, sho stopped a moment,
saying something to him at tho door,
then came into tho library and kissed
me good night. I shut up tho houso and
went to bed about half past 13, and her
door was closed when I went to our

"Certainly. We have tho doors opou
all night that lead into tho rear rooms
and their windows. This gives us abun
dant air. Alico always has tho hall door
closed at night."
"And Mrs. Maynard, was sho asleep?"
"No. Mrs. Maynard was lying awako
and seemed a little restless and disturb
ed. Somo of tho women had been giving
her some hints about Jerrold aud fretting
her. You know sho took a strango fancy
to him at tho start It was simply bo-
"I saw the slrjniitvrr nnd thnt postscript
(Oiuul the oiofs."
canso he reminded her so strongly of tho
boy sho hud lost. Sho told mo so. But
after a littlo sho began to discover traits
in him sho did not like, and then hi:i
growing intimacy with Alice worried
her. Sho wotdd havo put a stop to tho
doctor's party, to her going with him,
I mean, but tho engagement was matlo
somo days ago. Two or three days since
she warned Alico not to trust him, sho
says, aud it is really as much on this as
any other account that wo decided to
get her away, off to see he r Aunt Grace.
Oh, God! How blind we are! How blind
we are!" And poor eld Maynard bowed
his head and almo-t groaned aloud.
Chester rose, and in his characteristic
way began trumping ljeivously up and
down. There was a knock at tho door.
"Tho adjutant's compliments, and 'twas
timo for guard mount. Would tho colo
nel wish to see him beforo he wont out?"
asked tho orderly.
"I ought to go, sir," said Chester. "I
am old officer of tho day, nnd thero will
bo just timo for mo to get into full uni
"Let them go on without you," said
Maynard. "I cannot sparo you now.
Send word to that effect Now now
about this man this Jerrold. What is
tho best thing we can do? Of course I
know what ho most deserves, but what
is the best thing under all tho circum
stances? Of course my wifo and Alico
will leave today. She was still sleeping
when-' I left and, pray God, is not
dreaming of this. It-was nearly 2 beforo
sho closed her eyes' last night, and I,
too, slept badly. You have seen him.
What docs he Bay?"
"Denies everything everything
challenges mo to prove that ho was ab
sent from his house more than five min
utes indood, I could not, for ho may
have coma in just after I left and pro
tended utter ignoranco of my meaning
when I acousod him of striking me bo
fore I ordered the sentry to fire. Of
course it is all useless now. When I
confront him with this lotter, ho must
give in. Then lot him resign and gbt
away as quietly as possible bjfore the
end of tho 'Week. No one uoed know the
causes. Of course shooting is what hi
deserves, but shooting demands expla
nation. It is better for your name, hers
and all that ho should bo allowed to
live than that tho truth wero suspected,
as it would be if he wero killed. In
deed, sir, if 1 were you, I would tako
them to Sablou, keep them away for a
fortnight nnd leave him to me. It may
bo oven judicious to let him go on with
all his duties as though nothing had
happened, as though ho had simply
been absent from reveille, and let tho
whole mutter drop liko that until all
reniiirk and curiosity aro lulled; then you
can send her back to Europe or tho east
timo enough to decide on that but I
will privately tell him ho must quit tho
service iu six months and show him
why. It isn't the way it ought to bo
settled, it probably isn't tho way Armi
tago would do it, but it is tho best
thing that occurs to mo. One thing is
certain. You and they ought to get
away at oneo, and ho should not bo per
mitted to sto her again: I can run the
post a few days aud explain matters
alter you go. "
Tho colonel vat in wretched silence a
few moments. Then ho arose:
"If it wero not for her danger her
heart I would nover drop tho matter
here never! I would seo it through
to tho bitter end. But you aro probably
right ns to the prudent course to take.
I'll get them away on tho noon train.
Ho thinks they do not start until later.
Now I must go nnd faco it. My God,
Chester, could you look at that child
und realizo it? Even now, even now,
sir, I believe I believe somo way
somehow she is innocent "
"God grant it, sir!" ;
And then tho colonel left tho office,
avoiding, as has been told, a word with
any man. Chester buttoned tho tclltalo
letter in an inner pocket, after having
first folded tho sheet lengthwise, and
then inclosed it in a long oflioial envel-:
opo. Tho officers, wondering at tho
Colonel's distraught appearance, had
!omo throughm in, hoping for informa
tion, ana tiien nail gmie, unsatisfied und
disgusted, practically turned ont by
their crabbed senior captain. Tho la
dies, after chatting aimlessly about tho
quadrangle for half nn hour, had decid
ed that Mrs. Maynard must bo ill, and
whilo most of them awaited tho result
two of their number went to tho colo
nel's liouso and rang tho bell. A
servant oppeared. "Mrs. Maynard
Wasn't very well this morning and was
breakfasting in her room, and Miss
Alico was with her, if tho ladies would
please excuse them. " Aud so tho emis
saries returned unsuccessful. Then,
too, as wo havo seen, despito his good
intention of keeping matters hushed as
much as possible, Chester's nervous ir
ritability had got tho better of him,
and ho had maiL damaging admissions
to Wilton of tho existence of a causo
Of worrimcnt and perplexity, aud this
Wilton told without compunction. Aud
then there wan another excitement that
fet all tongues wagging. Every man
had heard what Chester said; that Mr.
Jerrold must not quit tho garrison un
til ho had first come and seen tho tem
porary commanding officer, and Hall
had speedily carried tho news to his
"Aro you ready to go?" asked Mr.
Jerrold, who was lacing his boots in tho
'"No. I've got to go and get into
"All right. Go and bo lively! I'll
wait for you at Murphy's, beyond tho
bridge, provided you say nothing about
"You don't mean you aro going
"Going? Of conrso I am. I've got old
Mayuard's permission, and if Chester
means to revoke it ho's got to get his ad
jutant hero inside of 10 seconds. What
you tell mo isn't official, I'm off now!"
And when tho adjutant returned to
Captain Chester it was with the infor
mation that ho was too late. Mr. Jer
rold's dogcart had crossed the bridge
five minutes curlier.
Perhaps an hour later tho colonel sent
for Chester, and tho captaiu went to his
houso. Tho old soldier was pacing slow
ly up and down tho parlor floor.
"I wanted you a moment A singular
thing has happened. Yon know that
'directoire' cabinet photo of Alice? My
wifo always kept it on her dressing ta
ble, and this morning it's gone. That
framo tho silver filigree thing was
found behind a sofa pillow in Alice's
room, and she declares sho has no idea
how it got there. Chester, is thero any
new significance in this?"
Tho captaiu bowed assent
"What is it?"
"That photograph was seen by Major
Sloat iu Jerrold's bureau drawer at re
veille this morning."
And such was the situation at Sibley
tho August day the colonel took his
wifo and her lovely daughter to visit
Aunt Craeo at Lako Suulou.

quite as dainty for tho table ns pure whito
linen, however, hemmed rather than
friiifr;'d, nnd by all means hemmed by
hand. Machine hemming on table ani
bed linen is an Incongruity which should
never be tolerated.
Reverting to the subject of tinted houso
linen, It Is u good plan to buy towels that
havo not a colored border, for in the wash
ing und boiling that towels so frequently
pass through the color is sure to fade more
or less, even if it be red, which is most
lasting, uud an appearance of ago and
shabhlncss is thus produced long beforo the
linen is really worn out.
The latest thing in fancy work is tho em
broidering of small squares of coarse ecru
bolting cloth with Japanese silks in Per
sian patterns, the squares to be turned to
account in making cushion covers, him
brequlus nnd other decorutive articles.
Joined by wide bunds of dull bluo ribbon,
they would make a very pretty baby car
riage robe, although nothing can equal for
that purpose a white cushniero goatskin,
which is light, warm and appropriately
infantile looking. Excessive elaboration
is out of place iu a child's uppurtcnunccs.
The more exquisitely simple and ucut they
aro tho more rellned will they appear.
That is why a baby's toilet articles should
be of china und ivory rather than of silver
and its lawn gowns hemstitched und

patterns in colored silks and gold cord,

Four uud Its Multiple of Ten.
The number four was anciently esteemed
tho most perfect of all, being the arithmet
ical mean between one and seven. Omah,
tho second caliph, said, "Four things come
not back tho spoken word, the sped ar
row, the past life, tho neglected opportun
ity." In nature thero are four seasons,
and the four points of tho compass.

A Visitor to a hospital in Paris, in which
