But witliin t .iic lirst few days of his coming, ami ou the evo of the arrival of (ien. I'ield, Maj. Flint was In possession of the stt>ry of . how devoted young Pit.'ld h .fd been to Esther Dade, and how cruelly he had jilted her for the brilliant Mis0 Flower, "her that was pone with the Simix." The diffen -neos between her stout., veteran licgo and the smooth-faced stripHng hail given her text to Bt ^irt with. The story of the money lost hatl filtered from hcj lips, and finally that of other peeea^ dilloos, t*i th <i j-oung post adjutant, whom, a.s she said, "The mecjor ha <l to rejuice and sind to '-the front all along of his doin 's In gar'son." Dade was gone. There ^vas no man. save Wilkins to whom Moj. Flint ftlt Uiat he could apical for "confirnuiHon or denial of these stores. Dr. Waller was his senior in tho BcrvlcQ by ton years at least, and .a type of the old-timo oflieer und genil ^man • of whom such as Flint etood ever in awe.

"Ho leaves Hook Creek to-night, having hired transport .;it ion tliere. 1 had hoped our hid might be in better spirits by this time." The major answered vaguelj'. How could o lad with .ill these sins upon bis soul be in anything but low spirits? Hero was n brand to be snatche<l from the burning, a youth wl:om jirompt, stern raeai^ures might redeem and res {.<iri'. one «'ho should be t;iught the error of his wiiys forthv.ith; only,, the coming of tho member of the military committ*.'e of the house t >f n^pn-seutatlves might make" the process emb;trrassing. Thero were i >t.her ways, therefore and however, in which tlifs valuable information in the major's po.sscs- sion might K' jnit t<^ use, and of these was the major thinking, more than of i,he eonditiim of the wounded Uitl, physical or spltntiial, as homo- ward through the gh^ming he wended his way. That night the major, calling at Captn Datle's, wjus concerned to hear* that Mrs. Dade was not at home.

Hut tiiere <'ame reason .speedily' why Mrs. Kay could not forget it. .\nd that night. latf'r. still, along toward four o'clock, the persistent clicking of the telegraph instrument at the adjutant's office caught the ear of the sentry, who in tiuic stirred up the operator, and a "rush" mea<-age was later thrust int4> the h.ind t >i Maj. Flint, demolishing a day-old coGtle in the air. to the fevrri.'-h unrest anti mentai tr<nilije of tile son, was now adcied a feverish anxiety oii the father's account that so complicatctl th<' situation as to give Dr. Waller grave cause for alarm. Then it was that, ignoring every thought of l>ehavior on the part o^ ^lio young ollicer toward the gentle girl so dear to them, not only Mrs. r .lake and Mr.s. Hay. hut Mrs. Datle herself insisted on iK -iiig madcs use of—insisted «ui permitt ^i 'd to go to his bedside and there to minister as only women can, to tho Miffnring nnd dist.resse<l. Waller thought it over and sticcumlied. The lad was no longer dcllrlou.s, at least, and If he revealed anything of what was uppermost in his mind it would be a conscious nnd vohmtary revelation. There were some tilings he Jiad said and that WaUertilone had heard, the good old dmtor wished were known to certain others of the garri- fion. and to tio one more than Mrs. Dade; nnd so the prohibition against their visiting the wounded lad was withdrawn, and nort cmly Ihe.'.e, but other, women, sympatheticrdiy attracted, were given the nt;cessary authority. There v.-as other reason for this. From the commanding ofliccr of the Bupply camp at l .'ocit .Springs II.KI conic, finally a lett^'r that was full of foreboding. Gen. Field, it saiil, was sorely injured and might not survive. If the department cortimander h.-id only beeti at Omaba or Ch<'yennc, as the an.xious father hastened to reach his son, the mishap would n"ver have occurred. The general would gladly have seen to it lha! suitable transpor- tati<m from the railway to Fraync was afforded his «ild-tlme comratli'. But. In his ab.scnce.

The con<luctor assui-»'d him that .<-;uc.h things were to bo in wiwli- ness on his arrival. Team, wagon and driver certainly' were on hand, but the team looked rickety', so did the w ;igon. s «i did the driver, who had obviously been primijig for tho occa- sifini It was this rig or nothing, however, nnd in si)it-«> of a court*'oua remonstrance from the two officers nt the supply camp, who saw an<l condemned the "outfit." fJen. Field started on time and returned on an improvised trestle three hours later. Tlje "outfit" had been tumbled over a ledge Into a rocky bottom and witli disastrous results to all concerned except the one who deservetl it most— the driver. The ways of Providence are indeed inscrutable. A surgeim had l)een sent from Fort Russell and his report was such that Waller would not let it go in full to his patiejit. JThey had carried the old soldier back to caiiip and such aid as could b<» given by jthe rude hands 'of untaught yen was all he had for nearly '24 nbisra ami his sulfering had Ix-en gseat. Internal injuries, it was feared,-had been sustained, and at his advanced age that was something, almost fatal. No wonder Waller was worried. Then Flint took alarm at other troubles closer at hand. Up to this year he had been mercifully spared all personal conduct with our ludi .in wards, and when he was told by IJia sentries that twice in sueees- i^ion night rider.", had been heard on he westward "bench." nnd pony racks in abimdance had been found t the up ])er ford— the site of Stab- r 's Tillage—and that others still were to be seen in the soft ground not far from Hay's cwrral, the major jwas more than startled. At this expcriOnceU Indian lighter icTt at the j post. Crabb was sent for, and im- flinchingly gave his views. The Sioux probably scattered before the squadrons sent after them from the north; had fled into the hills, and. In small bands, probably, were now raiding down toward the *I']att-e, well kno'vnng there wcr<^ew soldiers left to defend Fort Frayne, and no cavalry were there to chase them. "What brings them here? What do they hope to get or gain?" asked (To Be Contiaued.) r CAUSES OF HAY FEVER. Hyomei the Only Cure—Gives Change of Climate in Your Own Home. Fifty yenrs ago, hay fever had not been' named, but' undoubtedly people suffered Ihon as thoy do now with siornis of sneezing, profuse watering of the eyes, excessive running of the no.=-.c, inlou-so smarting and itching and .siulTed up feeling in the head. The direct causes appear to be heat, and the. pollen of flowers. Al- tliough hay' fever may occur at any .^so.isfm of the year, it is most common and seven; in .\ugu3t, and preventive ircafmcnl should- be adopted some woeivs before the time the disease is due. Prior to the discovery of the remarkable effects following the. use of Hy­ omei. the only troatihcm that gave relief to hay fever sufferers, was change of climate. The use of .Hyomei cn- ahies any one to breathe air at home which is like that of t'nc Adirbndacks, the While .Mountains or other hoalih resorts where healing balsams fill the air wj'.h nature's germ dcstroyor," ozone. Tho.ic who are subject to hay fever should begin the use of Hvomci r.t'i* • IY once and thus prevent the disease. Anj*;* ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure iu the treatment of hay fever. ; Chas. B. Spencer &.
