Sirs. Gen. Bullington remarked to Mrs.
Crestle that Daisy was so gentle and
modest. Mrs. Crestle replied in acquies

that a chief charm of -Daisy was that
she never gave herself j ny airs. To
this Mrsi Bullimrton retorted that Miss
Gilbert wasn't always 't working and

she had to exert herself to do so. The

from comparative peace and comfort,
in one of our inland cities, to a remote
military i station, west of the Rocky
Mountains. This military station was
named Camp Jenkins, after the com

established it. : It had been established
because there were Indians in its vi
cinity; the instant that It was estab

like morning mist, with the exception
of a few who did washing for their op

cottonwood and willow trees standing
on the banks of a rivulet of clear and
sparkling spring water, and the parade

persuasively. "Women are scarce here

In spite of the presence of General
Bullington, pcor Daisy felt a little
frightened. Slfe did not want to dance
with a man whose pistol and bowie-
knife were his tpiost striking features.
Just as she was fitting there, perplexed
and confused, hardly realizing what
the various men about her were trying
to say, the tone's of a man's voice,
which sounded fresh, pleasant and
manly, struck her ear. Now, when the
officers and the surereon: while the
barracks and the guard-room completed
three sides of the triangle, the fourth
being left open, and showing a wonder
ful tilcture of rjurole mountains, barren
and verdureless for thousands of feet, Daisy and Mrs. Crestl : were

and fields of dazzling snow that flashed
on the eyes even in the middle of arid
July. Outside of Camp Jenkins, for
miles around, were deserts of sage
brush ; inside was a natural landscape,
that by contrast seemed a bit of a para
dise. The inhabitants of this paradise
were, at the opening of this story, in
the Adamite condition as far as the
absence of women were concerned.
Mrs. Gen. Bullington had flatly refused
to accompany , the General when she
first heard the news of his transference
to the West ; afterwards, finding that
the General was placidly preparing to
go without her, she determined to fol
low, i Imagine, then, the scene as I
have described it at Camp Jenkins,
while Gen. Bullington is discovered on
the piazza in front of his cottage, just
waked from his afternoon nap by the
arrival of the daily mail. In his hand
is an open letter, signed Matilda Bul
lington, which informs him that his
wife will arrive a week after her letter.
"Crestle I" cried the General to his
Lieutenant, who was crossing the pa
rade ground ; "look here, will you ?"
Bullmsrton's piazza together, a Ser
geant came up with a j message to the
General, which he delivered and went
away." i -Si '

she said, "Of course you must explain
your conduct, Sergeant."
" I owe it to you, I know,", said Mr.
Curran, "but! wish you could trust
me enough, and believe I am sufficient

real position. 1 came over here with

Lieut. Crestle, formerly a Lieutenant geant appeared, and stood before them.
Colonel of volunteers, not only looked
there, as the General requested, but
came there, and stood by the side of
his commanding officer. He was a
handsome and soldierly-looking fellow,
dear to Gen. Bullington because he was
brave, honorable, a graduate of West
Point, and a Philadelphian.
"Crestle," said the General, "my
wife is coming next week."
"So is mine," replied Crestle.
"And the cottage is not in order ; and
the carpets are not down," said the
General plaintively. "Here's the doc

his eye fell upon the flowers she held.

them out to him. ;
"Do you like flowej-s?" she' asked.

Daisy? First you called him hand

what will you do next?"
"Oh I was that the arae Sergeant?"
said the little humbug; innocently.
"Of course it ' wass'f- replied Mrs.

What did you come over here for ?"
" For the same reason that you did'
said the Sergeant ; " and yet that was
not my only reason."
"What was it, then?" said Daisy,
" Because' you came," said the Ser
geant boldly ; and then he colored.
" You are no Sergeant," said Daisy.
"At least, you talk to me as I have
heard other young gentlemen no, I
don't mean that who are you ?" '
"Don't ask me, please, Miss Gil

as ine same people were sming

"There is going to be a ball to-morrow
"A ball?" said
brisrhtened ud. ili
"Yes," said Col. Creitle: "a ball over
at Porter's Gap. Shall we go ?"
"Oh, yes!" said; Daisy; "by all
means." 1 .
"Why Ned," said Mrs. Crestle, "just
think what you are pi jopbsing! There
will be miners and all jsorts of dreadful
creatures there; and it's fifteen miles
away from here. - Our going 'is quite

" I am her husband's nephew," said
in the Mr. Harry Curran, with a bow.
"Dear me!" said Mrs. Bullington;
" I thought your face seemed familiar.
General, how much he reminds one of
DAisy, suddenly Joseph Curran."
" Very," said the General.
" You must take good care of Daisy
to-night," said Airs. JJuJlington, bland
seated in the ambulance, Daisy found
she had forgotten her fan, and It was
absolutely necessary to go back and get
it. isut at last they reached tne camp,
and Daisy broke the silence which had
oppressed them with the words : '
" Quite safe I ' Oh , I'm so glad !"
"Of course ' we are quite safe, you
foolish child," said Mrs. General Bul
lington. ; " You had better go straight
to bed. You have been dancing too
much.", And Daisy thought perhaps
she had, though she did not say any
thing, but went slowly, very slowly, to
" To-morrow morning," she thought ,
" when he comes, as he probably will,
to the General's cottage with some mes
sages, he will not find me there, and
that will disappoint him. And wnen
he does see me he will smile from un
der his mustache his mustache is cer
tainly very becoming and I shall look
very blank. How disappointed he will
be!" And so Daisy besran to dream.
The next day found Daisy very fret
ful and disappointed. Cause her plans
had been frustrated. In the first place
he . did not come m the morning; in
the second place, when he did come,
in the afternoon, he did not smile
from under his mustache, partly be
cause his mustache was shaved on, and
partly because, having flirted occasion
ally in his life before, he was prepared
for a feminine reaction on the part of
Daisy from the graciousness of her be
havior on the preceding night.
But the next day General Bulling
ton, who had made a pet in every way
of Daisy, blindly became an instrument
in the hands of Providence.
" My dear," said he, " I have found
a horse m the camp that will just suit
you. Horse-back riding .will 'do you
good." . ;
" Oh I it will be lovely," cried Daisy,
joyously ; and then, as an afterthought,
added, " but 1 can't go alone, General.".
" That is true," said the Genesal. "I
have told Sergeant Butler to act as your
escort. le is a good, honest sort of a
fellow very trustworthy; and, while
he rides behind you, you can feel quite
"I should feel safe, I know, Gener
al," said Daisy, demurely : " but would
it be proper?"
".Proper! Oh, confound it I" said
the General : " I forgot all about that.
I'll ask Matilda:"
Matilda, on being asked, and on hear
ing casually that Mrs. Crestle had said
it would be improper, immediately ex
pressed her opinion that Mrs. Crestle
was a fool.
"If it were with a Lieutenant," said
Mrs. General Bullington, decisively,
"objections could be raised. But what
is a Sergeant? The idea is absurd."
So it was settled ; and one pleasant
morning in May, .Daisy and sergeant
Butler started, together for the moun
tains. ' The scenery was barren, the
bliage mostly sagebrush; yet Daisy
elt that she was going to enjoy her
ride. She glanced furtively at the Ser
geant, who looKed rigidly proper.
le did not speak ; he was attentive,
obedient, energetic : so Daisy herself
finally made a remark.
"I suppose General Bullington told
you that you were to ride out with me
whenever I wanted to go?"
"Yes, miss," said the Sergeant.
-"Now don't talk in that stiff way,"
said Daisy, "when you 'know I know
better. Please don't be a Sergeant,
"Very well, then," said Mr. Curran,
becoming elastic suddenly, "if you are
so kind as to let me be my old self."
"Why, of course," said Daisy. Ser
geants are not interesting."
"Thanks for the implied compli
ment." "Don't suppose that I imply any
thing," said Daisy. "Only please tell
me your story."
"I have none to tell," said Mr. Cur
ran. "Oh, very well, then!" said Daisy,
and pouted. She could pout.
"Well, really, Miss Gilbert," said
Mr. Curran, "there is little to tell. I
"What!" said the General; "you like QTATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, ,

said Mrs. Gen. Bullington severely.
The General felt vaguely that there
was a natural antagonism between Mrs.
Crestle and his wife, and introduced
them with the air of a martyr.

a slightly surprised tone. "Is your

Mrs. Crestle, sweetly, "just as Brigadier

- The sJorxnisn tuna proved successful

audacious woman, as she inwardly
designated Mrs. Crestle, would ever
dare to address her as
Bullington." As for the

missively. 1 M;M
Now. Mrsi Gen. Bullington .did not
wish to go to the ball at Porter's Gulch,
and only the controversial spirit in
spired her to do so. But, of course, it
was impossible for her ;to recede from
her position ; and so,; on the appointed
evening, she and Daisyy together with
Geri. Bullington and Dr. Gilbert, en

Porter's Gulch. Just-as they entered
that flourishing settlement, Dr.. Gilbert
was recognized, and t carried off to at

Bullinsrtons and Daisy entered the
dining-room of the Gulch House, w here
the ball was to take place, alone.
The dining-room wa$ certainly not
an imposing apartment. : The ceiling
was low and smoky ; the wralls, unlike
those in most of the houses at Porter's

events, the merit of simplicity)

Daisy looked carefully at him. He
seemed handsome; but she fancied his
look had a little exultation in it. .

"Well, then," continued Mr. Curran,
"I was engaged to be married by my

my parents died, and whose fortune I

to be engaged. My uncle and myself
were agreed on that point, but we dif

So, after this, Daisy rode out fre

who naturally envied their comrade's

By the time of her arrival there was
