To begin with Old Hurricane, La nylon's fulth lil valet ami servant, bad been be queathed to the care of Itodney May and Woodrow, bnd been eiven a little room back' of the main mess building and in somebody's cast oil dress suit appeared as butler one evening nt din ner. A Virginia education had made hi in familiar with every detail of such tlutles, and hla grizzled pate and lined. pathetic face went fur to equip him to look the character. ' To tangdon's friends among the boys It seemed most fitting that the lonely old negro mourn lug for his beloved master ahould he fared for by teir nuiulier, but Lang- don s friends were nut too numerous now that he was some weeks gone from their uiMst, and Nathan, Tor rance and satellites of theirs bad the Door. It ileased Mr. Torrance one evening to siwuk brutally to the old servitor and then contemptuously of hla former cniioyir, and when Slay and Woodrow beard of the shabby af fair they bunted up Torrance and de manded the reason .for his outbreak. The particular of thut encounter never igot out, hut a smull party of cronies first cut Torrauce and then "cut" loose from the club. Taking Hurricane with them, they set up housekeeping for themselves, and this new establish ment was In smooth running order, very harmonious and couipanlonahle, when the Ehcriduu news was received, whereas there were still dissensions at the mess." The married men bnd all club privileges, of courser but no seat at tuble. The 15 or 111 bachelor who thrice a day hud been accustomed to commune together over the board had Kukcu much comfort In Hurricune's co lonial dlgulty of manner and consum mate knowledge of a butler's duty. They were nnuoyed thut Torrauce should liuve taken It upon himself to abuse a servitor who was In nowise In his puy or uudi-r Jils authority; but. having failed tu puss the vote of cen sure pro)used by Hay, Woodrow and I.e Due or to tVke any measure what ever to Insure their butler against fur ther abuse, tliey had pit-clpitutcd the secession of six of their choicest spirits and with the six hud lost Hurricane. When it was too late, some of the main establishment thought they "ought to do something," for the six who seceded were gentlemen, and. If one might Judge from luuguuge and conduct. Tor ts nee was not Wealth, won with his lackaduislcul wife, had made him arro gant but nothing could uiuke him pop ular. The meniliership of the officers' club Included the entire cnuiuilssloned list of the garrison cavalry, artillery and staff, " t at" of course was presi dent, but Mrs. "Cat" hud her objections to his giving much time to social enjoy ment within Its walls, and the duughty veteran wiio hud led a dozen dashing charges dining the great war and who Isire the scars of more than one sharp scrimmage with the redskins on the frontier was no match for his better half In domestic encounter. Mrs. "('nt" had convictions, one of them being that a married man should eat and drink only In the presence and company of the partner of Ids Joys and woes. This insured his getting only what wa4 good for him. "Cat as a consequence saw very little of the club. Its vice presi dent, an easy going old mini, exercised no control, he professing to Isdieve that such powers were vested only In the chief. Melville but rarely set fisit with in Its doors. When he did, however, it was marvelous to note the effect Al tercation erased, argument tempered, voices toned down and orders for drinks diminished to next to nothing. In Its earlier singes the club had been likened by a witty and observant wo man to the Hourlng Camp Inmiortullied by Ilret Harte, and occupants of quar ters contiguous to or within hall of Its limits were loud and frequent in their couipluluts. "Hourlng Camp" was still the uauie by which the many garrison wits, mostly women, referred to It, and its uieuibcrs had so far aucctimltcd to the force of circumstances as to fall In to the way of saying they were going to "camp" wheu they meant to the club. Taking It by and large, however, the Iawtwe club had lieen a fairly har monious organization. If its cigars Were not the ticst to be found In the aruiy. Its stories were not the worst, and as for the mens feature, 1'awnee' table was said to be quite the peer of that of'Leavenworth or "the Point." But the mesa needed a head, the seu loT, officer pot having been provided with "more thuu the outward uud visi ble sigu thereof. Ha was a veteran captain of cavalry, long left a widower. He presided with ponderous dignity at the board, hut had neither Weight In deliberation nor force tu discipline. "Tliw hoys" overrode hlui completely, and when discussion became fierce or heated be lost all semblance of control. The secessiou of so many bright. brulny Juniors, all battery officers, proved sore blow. There was an ele ment among the cavalrymen In which Eric Langdou'a case had excited pro found sympathy, and the more these fellows saw and beard of Nathan and Torrauce the less they liked them and the more they felt for Langdon. 11 ut the antl-Laugdonltea, If out actually In iue majority, were iuosi in evtuence, for they at least had organization and energy. Conscious of the growing feeling for Larrgdou and against them, they were seeking every opportunity to heup further obloquy on his name. They turned up duy after day with some new story at hla expense for the truth of which they declared some reli able person was ready to vouch, and as their hearers bad no Information on the subjuct the most they could do was to look Incredulous. It was one even ing lute when Nathan and Torrance had been holding forth at some length and most of the cavalry crowd had slipped awojr to the card or billiard room that at lust oue of the troopers who had long feigned not to hear any thing that was lielng said emerged from the screen of tho morning palter and drawled: "Seems to me you fellows have to ex pend lots of ammunition killing a man you declare to lie dead. If he's the cad you naf he Is. how does It happen that Melville corresponds with him'" . "Melville's too soft hearted to refuse to answer his letters," answered Tor rance Impatiently. "They're probably begging letters, anyhow." " "They're not," said the trooper, " 'cause I've seen 'em. As to being soft hearted. I was with Melville In that Modoc business when Squirt Ta I titer hnd to resign and when he cut Jlnimle flannnn dead. I'll bet you what you like Melville would tire you, Nathan, quick as he did To Inter, or cut you, Tomince, dead as he did Gannon if you deserved It as they did. Rut be stands up for I.angdon." "I've said liefore, Cnptaln Chnnntng, replied Nitthuu. with pronounced em- pliusls on the title, turning the color of bis stripes and half way round In bis chair, "Major Melville does not know Lungdoii. As for Tuluter, any man who played the coward as he did -voulil have to expect court martini at least, and Melrille let hita off the putt. lie disgrace he deserved. He was a shume to the regiment. As for (inn lion. there was a woman in thut case, and others cut him a t well as Melville." W-e-11 now, bold on.

"I was 8tiitloued at Frisco about that time, and I know quite as much ef the busi ness as you do who hnp)ened to be In Kuiope on leave, as I remember when your regiment got Into that cam paign" My battery wasn't In It!" Interposed Nathan hastily. "And," continued Channlng placidly. 'Talnter Isn't the only man to find the perils of Indian fighting too much for his nerve. We had a case In my regi ment and there are others. As for cutting (iuniion, It's true others did It, but not until after Melville set the ex ample. If Langdon was half as bad as you make hlin out, Melrille wouldn't lie backing hi in for employment at this minute and you wouldn't he taking such pains to prove your side of the case, which, by gad, Isu t mine. All right." sneered Nathan, rising uneasily and making for the door In evident discomfiture over ('banning- pointed remarks. 'Tin betting you and Melville will be wishing you bad left had enough alone ts-fore you are many months older, and I dm't envyyou If the colonel happens to hear of your taking up the cudgels for the man he court martlaled. Come on, Torrance!" No fear; he won't hear," drawled Chnnntng. "Nonconductors are scan hi your set, Nathan, (lood night to you both.". . That episode led to spilt numlicr two In the mess, ('banning' words were held by Nathan's few followers as "a slur on the artillery," and he was asked to withdraw them. He wouldn't He said they applied only to Nathan's Im mediate circle, which Included, to the heat of his Is-llef. only three or posslldy four olllcers of artillery. The mess dl vhhsl against Itself, and this was the condition of affair when the Chicago papers cnpie telling of the tremendous events at Sheridan. It so happened that Mrs. Torrance was giving a recep tion that afternoon, that Mrs. Melville had "regretted" some days previous, but that Miss Kthel (irahame, the very attractive young woman referred to as devoted to riding" In an earlier chap ter, hnd lieen Induced, much against her will, to go In place of her aunt There were many "tiolut" to this girl, as the most blase man In the batteries.

WHIXkKT AND UAKUH MY KIJIX. A man took his own life In Spok ane last week and left the following epitaph: "To whom It may concern: Whis key and card have lieen my ruin. Bury my body any place; you can not locate my relative. Life has been a failure for me. I am better dead than alive." Whiskey and cards were not the ruin of tbi unfortunate. They were but the Instruments of hi ruin. We do not blame the word and tho can non for tbe horror of warfare, be cause reason tell as that war and battle spring from imperfect human nature. There were war Iks fore the invention of cannons and swords, and weak nature would' court de struction If whiskey had not been distilled or card printed.
