THE RED CLQgj) CHIEi.
A. C. HOSMER, Publlsfcer.
BY THE ME OF THE SEA.
Ey David Christie Murray,
Annua or "A Mounr. rxmzn, "A Life's
It was in the days of the last dynasty
of the dandies, anil anybody under the
age of Unity who spoke with the accent
of Christian, pagan or man could
scarcely be ar counted a gentleman.
r "Mie is a fainc cieachaw," said the
Captain -a davylish faine crcachaw
an exceptionally faine crcachaw."
Tiie Lieutenant echoed the Captain's
en- oiiiiwm, and the pair .struck into
formidable a'titudes at the porch of the
theater. Little knots of country peo
ple gathered on the other side of the
road and -mveed the two gentlemen,
who were attired ui evening dre3s. and
knew tl.em-elve3 to be objYeLs of inter
est and admiration. M. Gibus liad just
given to the world his famous inven
tion, and the two military gentlemen,
u ho were in the van :ina foremost of
fashion, had adopted it. The Captain
wa,s fullv sclf-pose.-.scd under the ad-
miring gae of the vokcls, but the Lieu-
Unanl so far yielded to a natural weak
ness a, Jo i:ih. 0fl his hat and flatten
it :ga n -i his breast- it was .Jono with
nn admirable air of nb-eiii-minded
h.ib.t, ami it amazed the h senders.
f Tin- Lieutenant felt that lie made a t II
ing tiL'iue; but when lie nde ed the
Kpring-, Mil ihi hat l!cd bad. into iLs
former shape ht was betrawd into a
Miide ot liiumph at the at n-at on he
created, and from t.at inoim nt he be
came 'ilf-conseious and embarrassed,
insomuch that his legs v.hieh were

tro'ihhj to him. The pas-ing Iiy of a
frh'iid at sm-h a moment secmud'aliiiGst
prov 'deiit.nl. ami the Lieutenant sprang
into the gailit street with renewed com-po-ure.
"Hollo, Tregarlhen! How d'ye do?
Quite an ae sines we saw 3011. old

ac mi Mi-s CJnuehill? She- a faine
ie.icha.v- an except onally faine
crcachaw, 'pon my word."
1 he Captain .smiled at this echo of
his ov. n conversational felicities. The
J.ieiiten'iui. as he knew, was a fellow of
"Xo," .said Trcgarlhen; "I haven't
seen her. Who is dic?"
"Actress," replied f lie Lieutenant,
Micces-fully imitating the Captain's
lrawl. "'laying hero now. I)uyvili-h

The new comer allow r-d lum-clf to

sadness in it.

Late afternoon found him at head
quarters, with l.ttle more than time to
dres for dinner. Lieutenant-Colonel
Pollard had resumed the active com
mand of the corps, and took the head
place at the mess-table. Tregarthen
was presented, and formed a poor opin
ion of the bloated old warrior who met
him with a di-reputable jest, and told
straightway an objectionable story
which grated on the cornet's cars.
When the real busin"S3 of the dinner
began the manners of the ollicer in
command were not at all to the tale
of the joung gentleman, who was, pos
sibly, fastidious The Colonel's eyes
goggled and his lace enm-oned as he
strained over the table to get at his

to avoid him. He was not unpopular,
to begin with, but It was the general

lence he had shown deserved rebuke,
lie must be made to see at once that
this was not the tone to take.
That evening there came a time when j
the convor.-ation at the head of tho I
table was animated and loud. The
vouug.sters at tho lower end .smoked
and listened, and got little good by
lLstening. It was nothing lcs U.an the

his wicked, bronchial old chuckle. "I'll

1 'very body listened, and tho Colonel
told his story. It redounded infinitely
to his own credit as :i man of gallantry,
and infinitely to the discredit of the
lady whose personal charms he sang
and whose character ho stole.
"Now, who do you think that was?"
asked the Colonel. Nobody answered,
and the fat old rone relit his cigar and
ga'ed about him with u look of twin
kling triumph. "None other," he said,
after a pause "than our chaste young
friend. Mi-s Churchill. What do you
say to that?"
It happened at this moment that tho
Colonel's twinkling eyes looked full into
the eyes of Tregaithen, who was bend

of the table and wat diing his command

in awkward silence.
A general sense of relief was felt five
minutes later, when, after a muttered
v,ord or two to his neighbors at right
nnd left, the Colonel arose and with
drew, followed by Major Eykin and
Captain Harcourt. Clamor ensued, and
nothing was talked of but the awful and
unheard of incident of the evening.
Tregarthen in the meantime walked
to ai quarters and returned the salutes

Soon after eight o'clock the other
morning a man about forty years old
rang the office bell at the Workhouse,
and to the door-keeper who answered
it, he asked: "Can I come in?"
"Why, yes, of course. Whom did
you wish to see?"'
"Oh, nobody in particular. You may
put me down for about ninety days."
It was soon disco vered that he was a
sailor who wanted lo bo locked np for
the. winter, and the door-keeper wat
obliged to inform him that he couldn't
be taken in after that fashion.
"So I've gotio be arrested and taken
before the policp judge, eh?" ho en
"Yes. have you any money?"
"About twenty dollars, which I want
to save until spring."
"Then you can't be arrested as a
vagrant. You will have to commit
some oflense. You'd better get drunk."
"Hut I am strict !v temperate."

The officer seized him and flung him
