TIIE 5 CI? ANTON TRIBUNE-THURSDAY MORNING. AUGUST 2. 1894.
At 10 o'clock that morning, shortly
after a smiling interview with tho la
dies of Fort Sibley, in which, with in
finite spirit and the most perfect solf
control, Miss Bcaabiun had informed
them that eho had promised to lead with
Mr. Jerrold, and siuco ho was in duress
he would lead with no one, and sent
them off wondering and greatly exoited,
there oamo running up to tho carriage
a telegraph messenger boy, who handed
her a dispatch.
"I was going up to the avenue,
mum, " he eiplainod, "but I seen you
Nina's face paled as sho tore it open
Mid read the curt lines:
"Corao to mo here. Your help needed
She sprang from tho carriage. "Toll
mother I have gone ovor to see sonio
fort friends not to wait," she called to
the coachman, woll knowing ho would
understand that she meant tho ladies
with whom she had been so recently
talking. Like a frightened deer she sped
araund the corner, hailed the driver of
u oab, lounging with his fellows along
tho walk, ordered him to drive with all
Kpeed to Summit avenue, and with beat
ing heart decided on her plan. Her glo
rious eyes wero flashing; the uativo
courage and llerco determination of her
race wero working in her woman's
heart. 6ho well knew that imminent
danger threatened him. She had dared
everytliing for love of his mere presence,
his sweet caress. What would she not
duro to save him if save sho could? Ho
had uot boon truo to her. Sho know,
and knew well, that, whether sought or
not, Alice Uonwick had been winning
him from her, that he was wavoring,
that he had been cold and negligent,
but with all her soul and strength sho
loved him and believed him grand and
brave and lino as he was beautiful.
Now now was her opportunity. Ho
heeded her. His commission, his honor,
depended on her. Ho had intimated as
much the night before had told her
of the accusations and suspicions that
attached to him but mado no mention
of tho photograph.
Ho . had said that, though nothing
would drag from him a word thr.t would
compromise her, sho might bo called
upon to stand 'twixt him and ruin, and
bow perhaps the hour had come. Sho
could free, exonerate, glorify him, and
la doing so claim him for her own.
Who. after this, could stand 'twixt her
and him? Ho loved her, though he hud
been cold, and sho? Had he bidden
her bow her dusky head to earth and
kiaa the print cf his heol sho would
have obeyed could she but feel sure that
her toward would be a simple tooth of
hii hand, au assurance that no other
woman could find a moment's place in
bis I07& Verily, he had been doing
desperate wooing in the leng winter,
lor tho very depths of her nature were
all athrob with love for him. And now
ho oonld no longer plead that povorty
Withheld his offer of his hand. Sho
would soon ba mistress of her own lit
tle fortune, and at her mother's death
of an independence. Go to him sho
would, and on wings of tho wind, and
go sbd did. Tho cab released her at the
gate to her home and went back with a
double faro that sot the driver to think
ing. Sho sped through tho houso and
out the rear doors, much to tho amaze
of cook and others who were in consul
tation in the kitchen. She flew down a
winding flight of stairs to the level be
low, and her fairy feet went tripping
over the pavement of a plebeian streot.
A quick turn, and she was at a little
keoond rato stable, whoso proprietor
know her and started from his chair.
"What's wrong today, Miss Nina?"
"I want tho roan mare and light buggy
Again qulok as you can. Your own
prioo at the old terms, Mr. Graves si
lence." Ho nodded, called to a subordinate
and In Ave minutes handed her into the
frail vehicle. An iinpationt chirrup and
flap of the reins, and the roan shot
forth into the dusty road, leaving old
Graves shaking his hoad at tho door.
"I've known her over since sho was
woauod," ho muttered, "and she's a
wild bird, if ever there was one, but
tfxo'a never been the like o' this till last
And tho roan maro was covered with
foam "and sweat when Nina Bcanbien
drove into the bustling fort, barely an
hour after her receipt of Jerrold'B tele
gram. A few officers wero gathered in
front of headquarters, and there were
curious looks from face to face as she
Was roeognized. Mr. Rollins was on
the walk, giving some instructions to a
sergeant of his company, and nover 6aw
fcer until tho buggy reined up closo bo
hind him, and turning suddenly he met
her faoe to face as sho sprang lightly
to the ground. The young follow red
dened to his eyes and would havo re
coiled, but sho was mistress of the situ-a-iou.
She well know sho had but to
command, and he would obey, or, at tho
most, if 6ho could no longer command
oho had only to implore, and ho would
be powerloss to withstand her entreaty.
"I om glad you aro here, Mr. Rol
lins. You can holp me sergeant, will
you kindly hitch my horse at that post?
now," sho added in low, hurried
tone, "come with me to Mr. Jerrold 'a."
Rolling was too stupefiod to answer.
Btlontly ho placed himself by her sido,
and together they passed the group at
the office. Miss Boanbien nodded with
something of hor old archness and co
quetry to the .6ap raising party, but
never hositatod. Together they passed
along the narrow board walk, followed
by onrious eyes, and an they reached tho
angle and stepped beneath the shelter
of the piazza in front of the long, low,
green blinded bachelors' row there was
sudden sensation in tho group. Mr.
Jerrold appeared at tho door of hisqnai1
ters; Rolunj halted some 00 feet away,
raised his oap and left hor, and all alone,
with the eyes of Fort Sibley upon her,
Nina Beaubien stopped bravely forward
to meet hor lover. .
They saw him greot Y$f at the door.
Somo of them turned av.iy, unwilling
to look and yet unwilling to go and not
nndurstaud this new phase of tho mys
tery. Rollins, looking neither to right
nor left, repassed them and walked off
with a set, savage look on his young
face, ami thon, as one or two still gazed,
fascinated by this strango and daring
proceeding, others, too, turned back
and, half ashamed of themselves for
such a yielding to curiosity, glanced
furtively over at Jerrold's door.
There they stood ho restrained by
his arrest, unnblo to come forth; she,
restrained more by his barring form
than by any consideration of maidenly
reserve, for, had ho bidden, sho would
havo gono within. Sho had fully mado
up hor mind that wherever ho was, even
were it behind tho sentinels and hoi's of
tho guardhouse, sho would demand that
she be token to his sido. Ho had handed
out a chair, but sho would not sit.
They saw her looking up into his face
as he talked and noted tho eager gesti
culation, bo charaoteristio of his croolo
blood, that seemed to accompany his
rapid words. They saw hor bending to
ward him, looking eagorly up in his
eyes and occasionally casting indignant
glances over toward the group at the
office, as though she would annihilate
with her wrath tho persecutors of hor
hero. Then they saw her stretch forth
both her hands, with a quick impulsive
movement, and grasp his one instant,
looking so faithfully, steadfastly, loyal
ly, into his clouded and anxious face.
Then sho turned, and with quick, eagor
steps came tripping toward them. They
stood irresolute. Every mail felt that it
was somebody's duty to step forward,
meet her and bo her escort through tho
party, but no one advanced. There was,
if anything, a tendency to sidle toward
tho ofiice door, as thongh to leave tho
sidewalk unimpeded. But sho nover
sought to pass them by. With flashing
eyes and crimson cheoks, she bore
straight upon them, and with indignant
emphasis upon every word accosted
"Captain Wilton, Major Sloat, I wish
to see Captain Chester at once. Is he
in the office?"
"Certainly, Mis? Boanbien. Shall I
call him, or will you walk in?" And
both men were at her sido in a moment.
"Thanks. I will go right in if you
will kindly show mo to him."
Another moment, und Armitago and
Chostor, deep in tho mid: t of their du
ties and surrounded by clerks and order
lies and assailed Ly half a dozen queg-,
tions in one and the same instant, looked
up astonishod as Wilton stepped in and
announced Miss Beaubien, desiring to
boo Captain Chester on immediato busi
ness. There was no time for conference.
There she Btood in the doorway, and all
tongues were hushed on the instant
Chester roso and stepped forward, with
anxious courtei-y. ' Sho did not chooso to
see tho extended hand.
"It is you, alone, I wish to sec, cap
tain. Is it impossible here?"
"I fear it is, Miss Beaubien, but wo
can walk out in the open air. I feel
that I know what it is you wish to say
tome," ho added in a low tone, took
his cap from tho peg on which it hung
and lod tho way. Again sho passed
through the curious but respectful
group, and Jerrold, watching furtively
from his window, saw thorn come forth.
Tho captain turned to hor as soon as
they were out of earshot:
"I havo no daughter of my own, my
dear young lady, but if I had I could
not moro thoroughly feol for you than
I do. How can I holp you?"
Tho reply was unexpectedly spirited.
He had thought to enoonrago and sus
tain her, bo sympathetic and paternal;
but, as ho afterward ruefully admitted,
ho "nover did scorn to got tho hang of a
woman's temperament." Apparently
sympathy was not tho thing she needed.
"It is lato in tho day toiuk such a
question, Captain Chester. You havo
dono great wrong and injustice. Tho
question is now, Will you undo it?"
, Ho was too surprised to speak for a
moment. When his touguo was un
loosed, ho said:
"I shall bo glad to be convinced I
was wrong. " ,
"I know littlo of army justico or
army laws, Captain Chester, but when
a girl is compelled to tako this step to
rescue a friend tliero is something brutal
about them, or the men who enforce
them. Mr. Jerrold tells mo that ho is
arrested. I knew that last night, but
not until this morning did ho consent to
let mo know that ho would bo court
martialod unless ho could provo whoro
ho was the njght you vro officer of tho
day two weeks ago aiul last Saturday
night. Ho is too noblo iv good to de
fend himsolf when bydoinj so ho might
harm mo. But I nm hero to frco him
from tho cruel suspicion you havo form
ed." Sho had quickenod her stop, and
in hor impulsiveness and agitation they
wero almost at tho end of the walk. Ho
hesitated, as tliough roluctant to go
along under tho piazza, but sho was im
porious, and he yielded. "No, come!"
sho said. "I moan that you shall hear
tho whole truth, and that at once. I do
not expect you to understand or condouo
my conduct, but you must acquit him.
We are engaged, and I love him. He
has enomies here, as I sco all too plain
ly, and they havo prejudiced mother
against him, and sho has forbidden my
seeing him. I camo out to tho fort with
out hor knowiodgo ono day, and it au
gerod her. ' From that time sho would
not lot mo sco him alone. Sho watched
every movement and camo with me
wherever I drova Sho gave orders that
I should nover hhvo any of our horses
to drive or ride alone I, whom father
had indulged to tho utmost and who had
riddon and driven at will from my baby
hood. She came out to the fort with mo
that evening for parodo and never even
agreed to let mo go ont to seo some
neighbors nntil she learned he was to
escort Miss Renwiok. She had ordered
me to bo ready to go with hor to Cho
quamagon the next day, and I would
not bo until I had seen him. There hiul
been a misunderstanding. I got the But
tons to drive me out whilo niotlior sup
posed mo at tho Laureuts', and Mr. Jer
rold promised to meet me east of the
bridge and drive in town with us, and
I was to send him back in Graves'
"Ho had been refused permission to
leave the post, he said, and could not
cross the bridgo, whoro tho sentries
would bo suro to recognize him, but as
it was our last chance of meeting ho
risked tho disoovory of his absonco, nov
er dreaming of such a thing as his pri
vate rooms being inspected. Ho had a
littlo skiff down in tho willows that ho
had used before, and by leaving tho
party at midnight ho could gut homo,
cliango his dress, run down tho bank
aild row down stream to the point, there
leavo his skiff and climb up to tho road.
He met us there at 1 o'clock, and tho
Snttons would never betray either of us,
though they did not know wo wero en
gaged. We sat in their parlor a quarter
of an horn- after wo got to town, and
then 'twas timo to go,and thero was
only a little 10 minutes' walk down to
the stablo. I had seen him such a very
short time, and I had so much to tell
him." Chester could havo burst into
rapturous applause had sho been an ac
tress. Her cheeks wore aflamo, her
eyes full of flro and spirit, her bosom
heaving, her littlo foot tapping tho
ground, as sho stood thero leaning oil
tho colonel's funco and looking straight
up in tho perturbed voteran's face. She
was magnificent, ho said to himself,
and in her bravery, self sacrifico and in
dignation sho was. "It was then after
2, and I could just as well go with him
somebody had to bring the buggy back
and Graves himself hitched in his
roiui maro for me, nnd I drove out,
picked up Mr. Jerrold at tho corner,
and wo came out hero again through
tho darkness together. Even when wo
got to the point I did not let him go at
ouco. It was over an hour's drive. It
was fully half past 8 before we parted,
lie Bprang down tho path to reach tho
riverside, and beforo he was fairly in
his boat and pulling up against tho
stream I heard, far over here some
where, those two faint shots. That was
the shooting ho spoko of in his letter to
mo, not to her, and what business Colo
nel Maynard had to read and cxliibit
to his officers a letter never intended for
him I cannot understand. Mr. Jerrold
says it was not what ho wanted it to bo
at all, as ho wrote hastily, so he wroto
another and sent that to mo by Merrick
that morning nfter his absence was dis
covered. It probably blow out of tho
window, as theso other things did this
morning. Sco for yourself, captain."
And sho pointed to the two or three
bills and scraps that had evidently only
recently fluttered in among the now
"Then when ho was aroused at re
veille and you threatened him with
punishment and held over his head tho
startling accusation that you knew of
our meeting and our secret he was nat
urally infinitely distressed and oould
only writo to warn me, and ho managed
to get in and say gcodby to me at the
station. As for mo, I was back home by
5 o'clock, lot myself noiselessly up to
my room, and no ono know it but the
have I dtmu
what have I
Cnttons and old Graves, neither of
whom would betray mo. I had no fear
of tl.o long dark road. I had ridden and
driven as a child all over theso bluffs
and prairies beforo thero was any town
worth mentioning and in days when
my father and I found only friends not
euemios hero at Sibley."
"Miss Beaubien, let mo protest
against your accusation. It is not for
mo to reprove your gravo imprudouco
or recklessness, nor havo I tho right to
disapprove your choice of Mr. Jerrold.
Let me say nt onco that you havo nono
but friends here, and if it over should
bo known to what longths yon went to
savo him it will only make him moro
envied and you moro genuinely admired.
Iquostion your wisdom ; but, upon my
soul, I ndrniro your bravery and spirit.
You havo cleared him of a torriblo
A most disdainful nnd impatient
shrug of her shapely shoulders was Miss
Beaubieu's only answer to that allusion.
Tho possibility of Mr. Jerrold's being
suspocted of another entanglement was
something sho would not tolerate.
"I know nothing of other pcoplo's af
fairs. I simply speak cf my own. Let
us end this as quickly na possible, cap
tain. Now about Saturday night
Mother had consented' to our coming
back for tho german sho enjoys seeing
me lead, It soems and she decided to
pay a short visit to relations at St.
Croix, staying thero Saturday night and
over Sunday. This would givo us a
chance to meet again, us ho could spend
the evening in St. Croix and return by
late train, und I wroto and asked him.
Ho camo. Wo had a long talk in tho
summer house in tho garden, for mother
never dreamed of his being there, and
unluckily ho just missed the night train
and did not gut back until inspection.
It was impossiblo for him to havo boon
at Sablon, and ho can furnish other
proof, but would do nothing until he
had seen roe."
"Miss Beaubien, you have oloared
him. I only wish that you could clear
every one. "
"I urn in nowlso oonccmcd in that
other matter to. which you havo allud
ed; neither is Mr. Jerrold, May I say
to him at once that this ends his perse
cution?" Tho captain smiled. "You certaiuly
deserve to bo the bearer of good tidings.
I wish he may "appreciate it. "
Another moment, and she had left
him and sped back to Jerrold's door
way. Ho was thero to meet her, and
Chester looked with grim and uncertain
emotion at tho radiance in her faoe. Ho
had to get back to tho office and to pass
thorn; so, as civilly as ho could, consid
ering tho weight of 'wrath and contempt
ho felt for tho man, ho stopped and
' 'Your fair advocate, ha3 been all pow
erful. Mr. Jerrold. I congratulate you,
and your arrest is at an end. Captain
Armitage will requiro no duty of yon
until wo aro aboard, but we've only
half an hour. Tho train is coming sharp
"Train! What train? Whero are you
going?" sho asked, a wild anxiety in
her eyes, a sudden pallor on her face.
"Wo aro ordered post haste to Colo
rado, Nina, to roscuo what is left of
Thornton's men. But for you I should
havo been left behind."
"But for mo! left behind!" she cried.
"Oh, Howard, Howard! havo I only
only won you to send you into danger?
Oh, my darling! Oh, God, don't don't
go! They will kill you! It will kill me!
Oh, what have I done? what have I
"Nina, hush! My honor is with the
regiment I must go, child. We'll be
back in a few weeks. Indeed I fear
'twill all bo over beforo wo get there.
Nina, dou't look sol Dou'taot6ol Think
where you are!"
But sho had homo too much, and tho
blow camo all too soon too heavy. Sho
was well nigh senseless when tho Beau
bien carriage came whirling into tho
fort and old Maman rushed forth in
volublo and rabid ckargo upon her
daughter. All too late! It was useless
now. Her darling's heart was weaned
away and her lovo lavished on that tall,
objectionablo young soldier so soon to
go forth to battle. Reproaches, tears,
wrath, were all in order, but were
abandoned at sight of poor Nina's agony
of grief. Noon came, and tho train, and
with buoyant tread tho gallant com
mand marched down tho winding road
nnd filed aboard the cars, and Howard
Jerrold, shamo stricken, humbled at tho
contemplation of his own miworthiness,
slowly unclasped hor aims from about
his neok, laid one long kiss upon her
white nnd quivering lips, took one brief
look in the great dark, haunting, de
spairing eyes and carried hor wail of
anguish ringing in his ears as he sprang
aboard and was whirled away.
But thero were women who deemed
themselves worse off than Nina Beau
bien tho wives and daughters and
sweethearts whom sho met that morn in
town, for when they got back to Sibley
tho regiment was miles away. For them
thero was not even a kiss from the lips
of thoso they loved. Time and train
waited for no woman. There wero com
rades battling for life in the Colorado
Rockies, and aid could not come too
TO BE CONTINUED.
Deceiving an Experts
Thomas Carvalho, tho treasury expert,
who is said to be the best judge of money
in the world, was sent to Birmingham,
Ala., to testify as nn expert in a counterfeit
cans. In explaining to tho jury the secret
marks which the genuine silver dollar
bears, he said: "The designer of the stand
ard silver dollar, Mr. Morgan, stamped the
initial of his name in two places on the
coin. All genuine standard silver dollars
bear ono minute letter 'M' stamped on ths
neck of the Goddess of Liberty, just at the
point where the longest lock of hiurcroKses
the neck line, and another on the reverse
side of the coin, on the left half of the loop
of ribbon tied about the wreath.'
Drawing from his pocket a handful of
coins he left the witness stand and walked
over to the jury box. "If you will look at
these dollars very carefully," said he, "you
will observe tho marks to which I have
alluded." lie then distributed the dollars
among the jurors and asked them to ex
amine tho coins. After studying awhile,
all but three ef the jurors were able to
make out the minute "M's." Then ex
pert Carvalho smilingly volunteered to
point out tho secret initials to tho three
gentlemen whose eyes were uot acute
enough to detect them.
Taking tho three coins in his hand hs
glanced at them casually. A puzzled look
oversprenjl his features; he closely scru
tinized tho dollars, walking over to the
window to get tho benrlltof a clearer liht.
Then he turned to t he jury and said: "Gen
tlemen, these coins well illustrate tho
point I was attempting to impress upon
you. They are counterfeits." Just before
entering ti.i court room Mr. Carvalho
stepped into a grocery and had a twenty
dollar hill changed In order to get enough
dollars to pass among tho jurors. Three
of these coins were bogus. Chicago Mail.
