How Lieut. Gaul was Knighted.
"It was before an intricate and unro-
1 mantic combination of straps and
buckles had usurped the office of a cer
tain article of female attire around
which is clustered a wealth of chivalry,"
said the colonel, as be poured out his
Scotch. "Pistols were more popular
than divorce courts then, and co-respondents
seldom had an opportunity to
perjure themselves like gentlemen."
The rest of us took Scotch, too, and
dropped into easy attitudes. That kind
of a preface means that the colonel is
sure of his story.
"Life was not a dream of Oriental
languor and magnificence to us young
sters, nor to the seniors, either, not by
any manner of means," he continued,
equally sure of his audience. 'Our
station was about as comfortable a spot
as one need expect to tind this side the
great hereafter, and infinitely more mo
notonous ' than anything likely to be
encountered by the worst of us in the
eternal bejond. It was a land of sum
mera particularly hot and dry sum
merin a howling wilderness of bare,
blistered prairies, coyotes, greasers and
Seminole Indian niggers. The major's
wife and her widowed sister were the
only two ladies in the post. Both were
eminently pious and eminently respect
able. "We had existed through nearly a
year of it when the general command
ing the God forsaken department swap
ped us a contract doctor for our surgeon
major, for the good of the service, as
that oflicer's friends in Washington
helped the surgeon-general to see it. In
a moment of aberration the doctor
brought out his pretty young wife, a
lady with the figure of a goddess and a
pair of brown eyes with a depth in them
that suggested well, say heaven, or
something better or worse a good deal
depends upon the point of view. Within
a week the garrison was at her feet,
and the doctor's malady had developed
from aberration to something that
threatened frenzy. Either the major
was sure of the lady's discretion, or
thought there was safety in numbers,
or else he just didn't have the heart to
interfere. Anyway, he said nothing.
And so matters went till spring brought
a million bright blossoms to the prair
ies and a bevy of no less brightly array
ed visitors to the post, the sisters and
the cousins and the aunts of the offi
cers, marooned, so to speak, on a gov
ernment reservation in a social and
physical desert.
"The arrival of this charming collec
tion of young women contributed but '
little, if at all, to the doctor's peace of
mind. To be sure, his pretty wife was
not so popular with the many in the
fact of other attractions, but what was
lacking in numbers seemed to be very i
fully made up in intensity. Lieuten-,
ant Gaul managed to spend in her soci-
ety about all the time that he didn't
have to give to sleeping, dressing or
duty, and the garrison talked as only a
handful of people huddled together
without the pale of civilization, with no
resources outside themselves, can talk.
Furthermore, Gaul was precisely the
sort of a fellow no man in his senses
would pick for a rival. Big and straight
and strong, with a head of curly yellcw
hair, a clear-cut, handsome face and a
pair of big, boyish blue eyes, he was ex
actly the type to make an emotional,
sentimental woman lose her bead; and
he was heedless and pleasure-loving
