in his reprimand, he summoned Ser

"Yes, air," was the emphatic answer.
"Didn't you know that was tanta

"No, sir. t There was no such thought

mother's son of them seemed to wish
to lie understood as maintaining that
be bad a perfect right to cheer, and if
lie hadn't he waa ready to take his
punishment. "Confound It," snld the
colonel to his silent adjutant, "if 1
alap 'em In arrest Nathan won't have

"There won't be," said his staff offi
cer dryly, "now that Langdou's gone."
He, too, bad loved the fellow nnd was
sore hearted over ids downfall.
"There's nobody else they'll be apt to
cheer for unless It's Melville."
The colonel turned suddenly and
glared, but the adjutant's face was
placid and unconcerned ns he quietly
stepped to the outer room and in low
tone bade the assembled -throng dis

Ills mania was for scraping and sav

hours of valuable time pruitluff off a
dollar from the estimate of the post
quartermaster or squeezing a cent a
bushel from the hay or grain contract
lie had - never before served with
mounted artillery, but unhesitatingly
ussuiued supreme control of the affairs
of the butteries, criticising nnd forbid
ding the expenditure of paint for the
carriages und caissons, cutting dowu
the number of horseshoes, condemning
the amount of grain nnd hay fed out In
the dally allowance and putting a stop
to shell and shrapnel practice as being
viciously extravagant. "It will ull In
straightened out when Melville comes,"
said the funuers, but it wasn't. The
colonel had never met Melville before,
but had had him dinned Into his ears
every time ho talked with nn enthusias
tic urtilleryman, and, to use his own
expression, "It made lilm tired." "Mcl
Vllln is a.Bort of demigod nccordiug
to these artillery fellows," said he,
"but I propose to riin my own post, and
no man shall run mo."
Bo when Melville arrived and report
ed for duty tliu colonel met him with
much solemnity and state. Ordinarily

manner, -lie now assiiinedinn liuHislug

with merriment and did Dot deceive
Melville In the least. That clear sight
ed, grave mannered soldier listened
with every appearance of courteous In
terest to thu colonel's exposition of
what he considered the neixls of the
butteries and the batteries' discipline
and Instruction, but as his own views
were neither asked nor; desired gave
no expression of them. The colonel
culled uixili the new arrival nt the
quarters of Captain Cannon that even

lows there, all clustered ubout their
demigod, and the colonel's minuter was

ville's face betrayed the fact that he
saw anything comical In 'the situation.
Within thu week he wus I partially set

grossed In Ids new duties. Ho found
the post commander pottering about
thu battery stables and gun sheds day
after day, giving orders direct to stable

but not n line of Ids face or a tone of

colonel had things all his own way.
Then one day, ull unannounced, there

Ami yet, as wo have si-en. it was un

had done so im:ch to hurt his bwu
cause. The mujnr had discovered the

however, the genuine s ildler lu "Cat's"
constitution had couiHlled hi him an
admiration nnd respect for the gravely
courteous artitleiyiuiin that, lu spite of
tlie lingering Jealousy he felt, made
him desire Melville's friendship.' Long
ere tills he had realized that battery
horses were built on fur different lines
from the "troopers" ho loved and, be
ing much heavier haulers Instead of
carriers and fed und shod for draft and
prepared for severe and sudden strain
should never have been cut down
from their allowance with the view of
making them conform to bis Ideus of

fully admitted, to himself only, that
ho find come near spoiling some IjO
draft animals und nearer still to mnk

was not until a month nftcr Luugdon'i
departure, however, that he mustered
up manliness to say to Melville: "How
much a fellow thinks he knows about
some other fellow's business until he
tries. Now, I had no more Idea that a
battery horse had to be so much heavi
er. Course i could Lave rend It ull up

of this establishment now, Melville. I
believe It's best to leave it all to you."
And tho two gravely shook bands.

he began again: "Then there's another
