Curiously enough, Learoyd, who had
fought for the prize, and In winning
secured the highest pleasure life had
to offer him, was altogether disposed
to undervalue It, while Ortheris openly
said that it would be better to break
the thing up. Dearsley, he argued,
might be a many-sided man, capable,
despite his magnificent fighting qualt
tisa, of setting in jnotlon the ma
chinery of the civil law a thingmuch
abhorred by the soldier. Under any
circumstances their fun had come and
passed; the next pay-day was close at
hand, when there would be beer for
all. Wherefore longer conserve the
"A first-class rifle shot, an' a good
little many av your Inches you are,"
said Mulvaney. 4'13ut you niver had a
head worth a soft-boiled egg. 'Tis

an' plottln' for the three av us. Or

that you an' me an' Jack wld his
sprained thumb will get a fortune
thereby. Leave me alone, an' let me
Meantime the palanquin stayed In
my stall, the key of which was in
Mulvaney's hands. "
Pay-day came and with It beer. It
was not In the experience to hope that
Mulvaney, dried by four weeks'
drought, would: avoid excess. Next
morning he and the palanquin had
disappeared. He had taken the pre
caution of getting three days' leave
"to see a friend on the railway," and
the colonel, well knowing that the
seasonal outburst was near, and hop
ing It would spend its force beyond the
limits of his jurisdiction, cheerfully
gave him all he demanded. At this
point his history, as recorded In the
Ortheris carried It not much further.
"No, 'e wasn't drunk." said the little
man, loyally, "the liquor was no more
than feelln' its way round inside of
'Im; but 'e went an' filled that 'ole
bloomln' palanquin with bottles 'fore
'e went off. He's gone 'an 'Ired six
men to carry 'lrn, an' I 'ad to 'dp 'im
Into 's nupshal couch, 'cause e
wouldn't 'ear reason. 'E's gone off In
'Is shirt an' trousles, swarin' trcmen
Jus gone down the road In the palan
quin, wavln' 'Is legs out o' the windy.'
"Yes," said I, "but where?"
"Now you arx me a question. 'E
said 'e was goln' to sell that palan
quin, but from observations what hap
pened'when I was stuffin' 'im through
the door, I fancy "e's gone to the new
embankment to mock at Dearsley.
Soon as Jock's off duty I'm goln' there
to see If 'e's safe not Mulvaney, but
t'ther man. My saints but I pity 'im
as "elps Terence out o' the palanquin
when e's' once fair drunk!"
"He'll come back without harm," I
said. " 'Course 'e will. On'y question
Is, what '11 'e be doin' the road. Kill
in' Dearsley, like as not. 'E shouldn't
'a' gone without Jock or me."
Reinforced hy Learoyd, Ortherin
sought the foreman of the coolie gantf.
TX'arsley's head was still embellished
with towels. Mulvaney, drunk or
sober, would have struck no man In
that condition, and Dearsley indig
nantly denied that he would have
taken advantage of the intoxicated
"I had my pick o' you two," he ex
plained to Learoyd, " and you got my
palanquin not before I'd made my
prot on It. Why'd I do any harm
when everything's untiled? Your man
did come here drunk drunk as Davy's
sow on afrosty night came a-purpose
to mock me stuck his head out o' the
door an' celled me a chuclfied hodman.
I made him drunker an' sent hin.
along. Hut I never touched him."
To these things Learoyd, slow to
perceive the evidences of sincerity,
answered only, "If owl comes to Mul
vaney long o' you, I'll gripple you,
clouts or no clouts on your ugly
head, an' I'll dniw t throat Iwintmays,
man. See there naw."
The embassy removed Itself, and
Dearsley, the battered, laughed alone
over his supper th-t evening.
Three days passed a fouith and a
flfih. The week drew to a ilose ami
Mulvaney did not return. He, ,y.
royal palanquin, and his six nttend
anls had vanished Into lr. A very
large and very tlpoy soldier, lils feet
sticking out of the litter of a reigning
princess. Is not a thing to travel along
the wuys without comment. Yet no
man of all the country round had seen
any such wonder. He was, und h"
was not; nnd Learoyd suggested the
Immediate maslim-nt of Dearsley as
a sacrlllee to his ghost. Ortheris In
sisted that all was well, and In
light of ptst experience hi hopes
"When Mulvaney goes up the road,"
said he, " ' like lo go a very long
ways up, specialty when 'e's so blue
drunk as 'e is now. tint what gits me
Is 'is not beln' 'eared of pullln' wool
off the niggers somewheres about.
That don't look good. The drink must
ha' died out In 'Im by this, unless 'e's
broke abarik, and then Why don'e
come back? 'K didn't ought to hn'
gone off without us."
Even Otherls's heart sunk at the
end of the seventh day, for half the
regiment were out semiring the country-side,
and Learoyd had been forced
to fight two men who hinted openly
that Mulvaney had deserted. To do
him Justice, the colonel laughed at
the' notion, even when It was put for
ward by his much trusted adjutant.
"Mulvaney would as soon think of
STORY BY RUYARD
deserting as you would," he said.
"No, he's either fallen Into a mischief
among the villagers and yet that isn't
likely, for he'd blarney himself out
of the Pit; or else he is engaged on
urgent private affairs some stupend
ous devilment that we shall hear of
at mess after it has been round of the
barrack-rooms. The worst of it is
that I shall have to give him twanty
elght days' TjoTif'tirment at least tot
being absent without leave, just when
I most want him to lick the new
batch of recruits Into shape. I never
knew a man who could put a foolish
on young soldiers as quickly as Mul
vaney can. How does he do it?"
"With blarney and the buckle end
of a belt, sir," said the adjutant.
"He is worth a couple of non-commissioned
officers when we are dealln'
with an Irish draft, and the London
lads seem to adore him. The worst
of It is that if he goes to the cells
the other two are neither to bold nor
to bind until he comes out again. I
believe Ortheris preaches mutiny on
those occasions, and I know that the
mere presence of Learoyd mourning
for Mulvaney kills all the cheerfulness
of his room. The sergeant tells me
that he allows no man to laugh when
he feels unhappy. They axe a queer
"For all that I wish we had a few
more of them. I like a well-conducted
regiment, but these pasty-faced,
shifty-eyed, mealy-mouthed young
slouchers from the depot worry me
sometimes with their offensive virtue.
They don't seem to have backbone
enough to do anything but play cards
and prowl round the married quarters.
I believe I'd forgive that old villain
on the spot if he turned up with any
sort of explanation that I could In
"Not likely to be much difficulty
about that sir," said the adjutant.
"Mulvaney's explanations are only
one degree less wonderful than his
performances. They say that when he
was in the Black Tyrone, before he
came to us, he was discovered on the
banks of the Liffy trying to sell his
colonel's charger to a Donegal dealer
as a perfect lady's hack. Shackbolt
commanded the Tyrone then."
"Shackbolt must have had apoplexy
at the thought of his ramping war
horse answering to that description.
He used to buy unbacked devils, and
tame them by some pet theory of
starvation. What did Mulvaney say?"
"That he was a member of the So
ciety for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals, and anxious to sell the poor
baste where he would get something
to fill out his dimples. Shackbolt
laughed, but I fancy that was why
Mulvaney exchanged to ours."
"I wish he were back," said the col
onel, "for I like him and believe he
Thai evening, to cheer our souls,
learoyd, Ortheris and I went Into the
waste to smoke out a porcupine. All
the dogs attended, but even their
clamor and they began to discuss the
shortcomings of porcupines before
they left cantonments could not take
us out of ourselves. A large, low
inoon turned the tops of the plume
grass to silver, and the stunted camel
thorn-bushes and sour tamarisks Into
the likenesses of trooping devils. The
smell of the sun had not left the earth,
and little aimless winds blowing
across the rose-gardens to the south
ward brought the scent out of dried
i-oses and water. Our fire once started
and the dogs craftily riiHposed to wait
the dash of the porcupine, we climbed
to the top of a rain-scarred hillock of
earth, and looked across the scrub
seamed with cattle-paths, white with
the long grass, and dotted with spots
of level pond bottom, where the snipe
would gather in winter.
"This," said Ortheris, with a sigh,
as he took In the unkempt desolation
of it all, "this Is sanguinary. This Is
unusual Bangulnary. Sort 'o mad
country. Like a grate when the fire's
put out by the sun." He shaded his
eyes against the moonlight. "An'
there's a looney dar.cir.' in the middle
of It all. Quite right. I'd dunce too
If I waan't so downheart."
There danced a portent In the face
of the moon a hugh and ragged
spirit of the waste, that Hupped Its
wings from afar. It hud risen out of
tne earth; it was coming' toward u?.
and its outline was never twice the
Kamc. The toga, tuble-cloth, or drexs-
Ing-gown, whatever the denture wore,
took a hundred shapes. Once It
stopped on a neighboring mound and
Hung all Its legs and urms to the

bad!" said Urtherls. 'Seems like if 'e

Leroyd raised himself from the dirt
a bull clears his flanks of the wal-
lowT- nit im the bull bellows, so he,
after a short"Trflnute at gaze, gav-
tongue to the stars.
'MULVANET MULVANEY! A hoo!"
Then we yelled all together, and the
figure dipped Into the hollow, till,
with a crash of rending grass, the lost
one strolled up to the light of the fire
and disappeared to the waist In a
wave of Joyous dogs. Then Leroyd
and Ortheris gave greeting, bass and
falsetto together, both swallowing a
lump In the throat.
"You damned fiol," said they, and
severally pounded him with their
'Go easy I" he answered, wrapping a
huge arm around each, "I would have
ynu know that I am a god, to be treat
ed as such tho' by me faith, I fancy
I've got to go to the guard-house Just
like a privet soldier."
The latter part of the sentence
destroyed the suspicions raised by tlm
former. Any one would have been
justified in regarding Mulvaney as
mad. He was batless and shoeless,
and his shirt and trowsers were
dropping from him. But he wore one
wondrous garment a gigantic cloak
that fell from collar-bone to heel of
pale pink silk, wrought all over in the
cunningest needlework of hands long
since dead, with the loves of the
Hindu gods. The monstrous figures
leaped in and out of the light of the
fire as he settled the folds round him.
Ortheris handled the stuff respect
fully for a moment while I was trying
to remember where I had seen it be
fore. The he screamed, "What 'ave
you done with the palanquin:? Xqh!Xs
wearln' the linin'."
"I am," said the Irishman, "an' by
the same token the 'broidery is scra
pln' me hide off .I've lived in this sump
shus counterpane for four days. Me
son, I begin to understhand why the
naygur is no use. Wldout me boots,
an' me trousles like an openwork
stocking on a gyurls' leg at a dance, I
begin to feel like naygur-man all
fearful and timorous. Give me a pipe
an' I II tell on."

A sedate little tot of a girl furnished
considerable amusement for a number
of street car passengers In New York
the other afternoon, at the same time
demonstrating that imitative motherly
qualities begin to show themselves
very early In life. In relating he little
comedy a writer forthe New York
Times says that the child, who was
with her mother,carrled in her arms a
doll half as big as herself. In the
course of the ride the little one's
mother found It necessary to give her
maternal attention to the small girl's
nose, and this being duly atended to
she slipped the pretty lace-trlmmed
handkerchief she had ur.cd into the
bag she was carrying and was about
to close It, when the baby held out
her small hand for It. It seemed she
wished to finish the duty her mama
had begun, as such small children
frequently 'In, but that was not true
In this instance. Baby was a mother
herself and, taking the handkerchief
solemnly, she applied It to dolly's
nose and handed it back to her mother
without a ghost of a smile. It was
the mother and the other passengers
in the car who exchanged smiles at
the serious way In which the little one
Imitated service done for herself.
