towards Baltic keeping south of the way the regiment had gone to follow And the very next day Ivaynor got orders to bring his battalion to the river and get on the while the wagons kept on down the bank with us to guard And Hayne was acting and lie stayed with us and him and Hull was together a good There was some wo because Earner thought another officer should have been made quartermaster and Hayne should have staved with his and they had some words but Hull gave Hayno a horse and seemed to keep him with liim and that iu sight of Battle the steamboat was out of sight ahead when we wont into and I was sergeant of tho guard and had my fire near the captains and twice in the evening Gower came to nie and said now was the lime to lay on the monoy and At last lie says to arc flat and

fto creep in wshe and tell Jiiinl wasrare Iliad beard an Indian drum and and he could hear them if he would come out on the river rnnlr Hed go says and think of wouldnt believe it but he He sprang up and went right out with just flinging his overcoat round him and he never seemed to want to come The wind was blowing soft like from the and he stood there straining his ears trying to hear the sounds I told him of but at last he gave it and we went back to and he took his lantern and looked in his saddle and I shook for fear but he seemed to find every thing all and in the next ten minutes he was and Gower came and whispered to and I went with and he gave me five hundred in Now youre says he keep the sentries off while I get my And thats the last I ever saw of Then a strange thing Twas hardly daylight when a courier came galloping and I called the and he read the and says By you were right after There are Indians over Why didnt I trust vour ears Call up the whole The Eiflers have treed them at Battle and Eayner has gone with liis We are to escort the wagons to where the beat lies beyond the and then push over with all the horsemen wa can It was after daylight when we got but we almost ran the wagons cross country to the and there Hull took F troop and what there was of his leaving only ten men back with the and not till then was Gowcr missed but all were in such a hurry to get to the Indians that no one paid Hayno he begged the captain to let him so the train was left with the wagon master and the captain of the and away wo You know all about the and how twas Hayne the captain called to and gave his watch and the two packages of money when he was ordered to I was right by his and I forgive me through the crack and tear in the paper I could see the lay ers of when I knew twas only some ones and twos Gower had slipped in to make it look right and Eaynor stood there and saw the and Walsho and Bugler White but them two were killed with so that twas only Eay ner and I was loft as and never till we got to Laramio after the cam paign did tho trouble I never dreamed of anything ever coming of it but that every one would say Gower stole the money and deserted but when the captain turned the packages over to Hayne and then got and Hajno carried the with tho saddlebags and toChey and never opened them till ho got weeks when wo were all they turned on is own officers and said he stole it and gambled or sont it away in Choy I had lost much of niy money and Clancy got the and it made mo crazy to think of that poor young gentleman accused of it all but I was in for and knew it meant prison for years for and perhaps they couldnt prove it on I got to drinking and told Kayner that the was down on me for swearing away the young officers character and then he took me to Company Bwhen tho colonel wouldnt have me any more in the and one night when Clancy had been rais ing my hair and I wanted monoy to drink and shed give me little Kate told mo her mother bad lots of monoy in a and that Gower had come and given it to her while they were get ting settled in the now post after the Battle Butte and he had made her promise to give it to me the moment I got somebody was in trou and that I must save liim and I be lieved and charged Clancy with and she beat nie and and swore it was all a lie and I never could got tho And at last came the and it was the iieutonant that saved my life and mid brought back to her all that pile of money through the It broke my heart and I vowed Id go and tell him the but they wouldnt let She told mo the captain said he would kill me if I and she would kill I didnt until they told nie my discharge had and then I was glad when the lieutenant and the major caught me in When they promised to take care of little Kate I didnt care what happened to The monoy Clancy perhaps two hundred belongs to Lieut since lie paid off every cent that was stolen from Supplemented by Clancys rueful and incoherent Clancys litory did its Clancy could not long persist in her various denials after her husbands confession was brought to her and she was totally unable to account satisfactorily for the possession of so much Little Kate had been too young to grasp the full meaning of what Gower said to her mother in that hurried interview bnt her reiterated statements that he came late at before the regiment got and knocked at the door until he waked them and her mother cried when he came he looked so and had spectacles and a patch on his and ranch he only stayed a little and told her mother he must go back to the the police were on his knew now he spoke of having he gave her mother lots of for she opened and counted it afterwards and told her it must all go to papa to get some one out of were so clear and circumstantial last the hardened woman began to break down and make reluctant When an astute sheriffs officer finally told her that he knew where he could lay hands on she surren dered So long as he was out of the not be held out but the prospect of dragging into prison with her the man who had spumed her in years gone by and was proof against her fascinations was too She told all she could at bis Hun had turned over his property to Ueut Hayne just before he was killed and that the lieutenant was now tried for failing to account for He brought enough to cover all he had she to persuade her to so to San Francisco with She promised to think of it if he would leave the he swearing he would come for her and That why she dared not ten Hike when he got He was so jealous of To this part of her statement Clancy stoutly adhered but the officers believed One other thing she Kate had declared he wore a heavy patch on his right cheek and Clancy remembered Some scoundrels had sought to rob him in He had to fight for life andmoney and his share of the honors of the fray was a deep and clean cut extending across the cheek bone and up above the right As these family revelations were told throughout the garrison and comment of every kind was made there is reason for the belief that Burton found no difficulty in filling her letters with particulars of deep interest to her who by this time had carried

so strict is the idea of ladies only on these occa sions that everybody was very mnch scandalised by the presence of the Colin of one of these latter engagement So very awkward So indelicater exclaimed one of the guests in my pres and I could not bnt suggest that perhaps the fiancee felt that seeing is be and wished to prove that her pretentious were not without This parading the engagement and the engaged is perhaps one but certainly a former friend of mine went to the other when she one day invited her own mother into her bedroom exhibiting a white silk dress lying upon the

people lose one of the very prettiest and mostideal epochs of tha of open and privileged One feels it in reading history and seeing the pretty pageant of thefiancailles of some fair young princess who returns for awMletoher fathers house a yet bearing somewhat of the sweetdig nityof matronhood and the honors of her future In the English marriage as used in the mother there is provision made for a betrothal to be followed as is now the moments by the real marriage and at one wed ding whereat I assisted in London the man and maid stopped at the entrance of the choir and there gave their troth before proceeding to the altar where they were It seems to me that if some pretty daughter of Murray Hill were to Betithe fashion of going to church and being be and then having a receptioniin her fathers it would be received as a quaint and original idea and charming All pretty may be ex panded Eke bubbles until they and this has Therewas a period when especially in were looked upon in nearly the same light as and great immorali ties sprung from One of Sir Wal ter Scotts The I upon this the be trothed pair calling themselves hand fast and openly living The same abuse of betrothal is brought forward in Wflkie Collinsnovel of The Cloister and the one of the beat stories he ever In the mar riage records became so obscureandso vague in consequence of this abuseof betrothal that the Scottish law was in defense of tha rights to ordain that any couple themselves man and or even living together in those actually to be held as although no marriage ceremony had been imposed upon The privileges and rights of betrothed lovers have and perhaps as vague as the importance of betrothal We shall all agree that Scotts and others like pushed both rights and privileges to an undue but on the other hand I heard one lady boasfr that husband had no more thankined her hand before she was married to and a man of my acquaintance bemoan ing his unhappy marriage said that he knew nothing at all of his wifes character nntil it was too for they been alone twice before their wedding and at home she was effaced by her clever and managing mamma Bnt very either of men would be content with such a cool and formal engagement as andlhow erer they they generally time goes on to secure some private and I daresay to indulge in some caresses a little warmer than the kissing of It is the nature of man to and to be the nature of woman to and to keep on flying as lone the pursuit continues and let me tell you in your my that it isthe very best way to keep up his interest in the pursuit bnt

from your own place and lay yourself at his and he will rest his foot upon and believe it is the natural and right thing to I hare a theory of my thatif a man breaks off his marriage engagement it is almost always the girls She has been either too hard or too soft with either chilled him into the convic tion that she is heartless and devoid of or she has valued herself so lightly that he has learned to hold very sheaply what is so lavishly And yet I condemn very seriously the man who for less than the gravest causes wfll break oif his engagement to the girl he has seriously invited to become his Nothing is more damaging to a girl in a social point of view than to have been and although she may not at all to blame in the or at most have only shown errors of judg ment and self a sort of stigma attaches to her in almost every circle of and another man is less likely to seek her in The man is not nor are his chances of subsequent marriage affected at whetherit is he or she who breaks off the and for that reason it always seems to me that if an engage ment must be broken the man should have the chivalry to take the odium of being discarded upon his own and declare the young lady to have been the I am always so sorry when I see in the papers that some or perhaps some is suing a man for breach of promise of for I always im agine it to be the suicidal expression of angry pride and wounded self love as well as other and that the hot desperate creature has only seized upon the weapon nearest at hand wherewith to strike at the man she still and is so bitterly ashamed of herself for One class of women take to and one to and one to the and one to resolute and I am sorry for them for I am sure they never would so disgrace themselvesex the extremity of great and I know
