One morning In November while rab
bit bunting near my father's farm I 1
cam* on a man'a track* In the anew,
the tracka bad been made In the night
and led to.aa old bam. It was plain
that the party who bad mad* them
knew of the old barn and bad It In
mind when be left tba highway.
I went Into the liarn. Presently
I beard tba aoore of a sleeping man,
and a uintita later I found blm cover
ed up In tba hay. Hta face waa ex
posed. and I aaw hla sandy hair, and
tban I knew who It was. 81* months
previously our nearest neighbor on tba
wast bad enlisted and gone to tba front
in the civil war. He was not much
thought of aa a man. being considered
shiftless and without ambition. It
waa tba large bounty that bad Induced
blm to enlist. If the man bad no
standing In the community, his wtfa
bad. Bhe waa an energetic little wo
man, far too good for such a man, and
wal universally respected. Bb* lived
quite alone after his enlistment, and
tba full crop, auch as It was, was gath
ered for her by the neighbors. They
had also sew that abe bad a store of
winter fuel. I uncovered the man
without awakening him and found that
be was sure enough Dan Bcott. I waa
about to arouse htm when It struck
me as a curious thing that be should
have coma to the old barn Instead of
going to hi* own bouse. I covered
him up again and left the place and a
quarter of an hour later waa knocking
on bis door.
••Well. John, what I* Itr ssked the
cheery little woman as I entered. -
"How long alnce you have beard

Not a word was spoken between us
on the way. We found the husband
atlll asleep, and aa abe stood and ear
veyed him slie flushed with anger.
Then abe gave him a smart kick, and
be opened bis eyes and sat up.
"I—l've come home, Jennie," be said.
"1 WHS so homesick to set you that I
Juat bad to come. 1 believe I should
have died If I hhdnt come."
"Then you got a furlougb r she ask

"A-a aort of a furlougb—that la, a
good many of the boys were coming
home. You see, It's got so late that
there won't be any more iMittles this
fall, and there was no use banging
around the camp. I hope yon ain't mad
about It. Jennie."
"You came away without leave, did
"There were others too."
"To come away without leave makes
you a deserter. You will be hunted
down and taken back. The pipers will
say you deserted. We shall b* dis

"Oh, come, now," protested Bcott aa
he reacted bis feet and brushed away
at the hay cllngtng to him. "You see,
you don't understand. I was homesick,
and It waa no use for me to stay there
when there waa fio fighting to be done.
It waa midnight when I got along here,
and so I didn't go to the bouse. Let's
go now. I'm hungry for breakfast.
Hello, John! Glad to aee you. Come
over tonight, and I'll tell you some war
stories. Why doot you kiss me, Jennie,
and tell roe you are glad to see me?"

LOVE AND ROSES.
Countess Marie Antoinette bad end
leaa admirers and suitor*. Tbe most
earnest of them were the two neigh
bors of ber parents, Camlll voa Lrertn
gen and Ernst von Prlnsthal. Camlll
was tbe moat daablug officer that could
be Imagined. He was not only a fa
mous dancer and horseman, but be
talked well and played the piano hrll
llantly. Uls castle was magnificent
and auperbly arranged. Hla stables
were well supplied. He bad Indeed
debt*, but debts ar* for tbe most part
an evidence of riches. Ernst von Print-!
thai waa, on the contrary, quiet, but
Both sued for Marie . Antotectte'e
hand, and each In hla own way waa
filled with dtatruat and Jealousy to
ward tbe other. This uncertainty
could not continue longer. One of tbeui
must yield his place If murder or a
deathblow did not remove him, but
which one? Tlw> parents permitted to
the daughter ber **free choice. And
Oountoa* Antoinette? Really ahe bad
not considered whom she would choose.
Tbe day before the garrison ball the
two aultora came to Castle Ilelversen
at the same moment and almost at
tacked each other in the aalon. Tbe re
sult waa tbat tbey urgently and ear
neatly begged Counteaa Antoinette to
render ber fiual decision.
"Make known to us by some token
which of us is tbe favored one, which
of us you will make happy with your
hand!" cried Camlll von Leeringen.
"Ye*, let us know our fate today, for
only under this condition can we give up
tbe duel which the scene of today baa
rendered almost unavoidable. Tbe on*
whom you reject will leave tbe scene
of combat. Will you do so?"
"Ob, you mu*t Indeed!" cried Ernat
von I'rlnsthal, "for, Antoinette, I can
not eudur* longer tb* torments of this
uncertainty. I love you. Do you un
derstand what that means? It meaua
that I shall suffer always If you do not
say, 'Yon shall find new life with me.'"
"Well, for my part," said Couuteaa
Antoinette, laughing, "I will glv* my
decision this evening. At this moment
I really have not the time. My bead la

my ball dress at noon, and It la now 11
"And let us know at tbe first glance
which of us has to bope and which of
us haa to dsapalr," said Ernst von
Prlnsthal In n hoarse voice, while his
breath came fast. "IfU am the one to
whom you will give lift and bappiuess,
then wear a rod rose In your hair.
Will you? But If It I* Cavalier Leerln
"Thou, of course, wear a white one,"
smiled tb* officer, showing his whitest
of teeth. "Rosea vary commonly la
these two shade*, as does wine."
"Bo let It be, so let It be," merrily
said tbe Countess Antoinette. "But
now adieu. I bear a carriage In tb*
court. I wager It Is tbe modiste and
my ball dress."
Tbe evening came. Antoinette stood
before ber mirror in all tbe magnifi
cence of tbe dresa from Mme. Leontlns
of Paria. Biie was beside herself with
dellgbt. in It* style, material and shad
ing of colore the ball dress waa a mus
ter work of elegance. It waa of tbe
palest rose tlut, not tbe ro*e red that
recall* tb* color of tbe hundred leafed
rose, but the shade tbat euggeets ei
ther tbe winter ro*e when fully blown
or tbe tip at tbe diamond petal that
haa a 1 moat a yellowish shimmer.
In tbla toilet, which harmonized won
derfully with her complexion,' her eyes
and ber cbustnut brown balr, Antoi
nette waa aweet enough to klaa. There
remained only tbo question of the
flower for her hslr. Before ber lay s
cluater of dewy rosea that tbe gardeuer
bad Juat brought. Bbe muat choose.
Bbe thought of tbe Important role tbe
color of her flower must plsy tbla even
But 'did abe think of tbe wooer*
tbemaelvea? Did abe love one more
than tbe other? Bhe was extremely
fond of both, but of wblcb one particu
larly? That ah* scarcely knew. Did
she think that tbe bandaome officer
waa s little flckle and a little frlvoloua;
that be waa somewhat akeptlcal as
well aa aomewhat reckless snd some
wbst extravagant? Did she remember
that a true heart tone bad sounded In
tbe voice of Ernst von Prlnxtbal, tbat
be was benevolent to tbe poor and that
on this very dooming she bsd seen a

No. Who thinka of auch doings be
fore a ball? Who thinks of lucb tilings
In tba bllssfulnesa of a new toilet?
It waa really impossible to wesr tbe
red roae with tbe blossom tint of tbe
dress that shaded so softly,' bat the
white rose, tbe heart of which softly
glowed Into s creamy shsde, completed
her toilet In tbe most enchanting man

In tile same house with lilm, and pres
ently this friend came Into the garden
through a front gate and back toward
where Marchand and Bmsalan were
sitting. He presented his card, bear
ing the name Blduey Mason, and aald:
"I am the liearer of a message from
Ernest Dumont to"— He looked from
tbe one to the other.
"Mr. Marchand drew a card and
handed It to him. "This 1* Mr. Bros

will you not?"
Brosslan assented, nnd Marchand
withdrew. Brosslan chatted a long
while with the young man In the hope
that amends might be made. But In
such a case ameuda sre Impossible. A
meeting lietweeu the two principals

fifty paces apart, then to advance, fir

word was given to advance and fire
Marchand stood still. He never raised
his pistol. Dumont, white as n sheet,
advanced firing, but seut three bullets

dangerously wounded. Then both
parties left tbe field. ~ jf"N
For a long while Marchand hung be

he Kent word to Dumont that he waa
able and ready to give blm further sat

would fight or stand up to lie killed,
and when Informed that he would get

Then Marchand left New Orleans to
go no one knew where.
The cause of the duel was kept se

considered that It was a case of the

mlugllng of the blond and brunette,
klr. aud Mies Farubam were welcome
it the rancb house*, with which tbe
rouutry waa dotted, and apent their
time riding over tbe country from one
if them to another. Tbe father looked
upon the region simply aa one In which

One morning the v Ist tore were riding
jver the broad acree of a cattle ranch
when they met a cowboy. He was
long aud slender, and bla face waa
tiandsome, with a dreamy expreeslon.
Instead of riding past tbem with a
blank stare the young mau raised his
Uat and bade them good morning. Hla
syen were riveted on Miss Bmlly, with
whoso sppearsnce he seemed very
much struck. When be had passed out
of bearlug, she remarked to ber fatberi
"leu't It strnnge, papa, that we have
to come ao far away from home to
"Mauuers! What do you mean?"
"That young mau bade us good morn
ing politely. If we had met a gentle
man In the country about New York,
he would nut have been so polite."
"Il'ml 1 dou't eee what bualness be
bad to speak to us at nil."
That evenlug at the ranch bouse aft
er sup|>er Mr. Farubam gpe notified
that a man wished to see him at the
porch. Tbe New Yorker went out to
find tbe cowboy be had passed In the
morning sitting In bis saddle, rolling a
cigarette on the pommel.
"I've called, air," he aald, "to ask
If you will allow me to paint tbe
young lady who wa* with you tills
morning—your daughter, I believe,"
"l'alnt my daughter! Certainly "not."
The reply' was given so curtly that
almost liefore It wa* out the cowboy
had put spare to his horse and darted
nwny. The dialogue had been short
aud to the point.
Mr. Farniiaro asked who his visitor
was aud was told that he was Bllery
Olinstead, commonly known as the
cowlioy art let, itnee he punched cattle
nnd painted pictures. No one seemed
to know or care much aliout his ante
cedents, but Koiuo ode Inul heard that
be had come from the cast, where he
hnd licen a student In an art school,
his object In coming being health.
The next day when Mr. and Miss
Famham were out for their usual ride
tbey met a masked man who baited
tbem, calling upon tbe father to throw
up his hands. The order was olieyed,
but upon the assurance that he was
not aruied the gentleman was permit
ted to lower them. Then he took out
his pocfeetlsiok, but was ordered to
put It back. Not far distant waa a
dilapidated barn that had not been
Sised for years. To this the masked
man drove father aud daughter, then
ordered them to dismount. Within
was an easel on which rested a can
vas, while paints, palette and brushes
lay near. The captor asked Mr, Fam
ham to dinmomit and gave blm a camp
stool. Then, asslatlng the young lady
from her horse. he jiosed her to -suit
his fancy. IHvlnlng ills purpose, she
aeemsd not only willing, but pleased
with the outenia* of the adveuture.
Meanwhile he had removed his mask
nnd revealed himaelf as the cowboy
artist, and as soon a* the posing was
accomplished he began to sketch.
The sitting lasted for more than an
hour, nnd when It waa finished the art
lat assisted hl; captive* to mount.
"I am curious," sold Emily Fnrnbam,
"to see how the picture will turn out."
"I have only caught an Inspiration
for a fancy picture,'V aald the young
man. "If you wish (It to be yourself
you must give me other sittings."
How Emily won oVer her father Is
not known, but tbe next day tbe two
appeared at the barn and came after
ward for a number of sitting*. The
plAture grew Into a tblug of jieauty,
and the model waa delighted with It.
Tbju Mr. Famham, who had been so
outraged by bis compulsory treatment
nMto discover no beauty In tbe palut
at last, seeing his daughter looking
at him from the canvas With an In
tenalfled beauty, began to covet tbe
"H'ml" he said to tbe artist, "now
much would ,vou sell it for?"
"Rood ugeuts are not used to selling
their plunder to those tbey plunder,"
wa* the reply.
"This ca*a*roay be an exception,"
said tbe father.
"Tbe picture Is not for sale, but If
youi' daughter will forgive me for
painting It from compulsory sittings I
shall be pleased to present It to you."
The young ledy would have gladly
Seceded to the terma, but ber father
would not permit and left the country
without the portrait.
Tb* next winter the painting waa ex
hibited In New York and attracted
great attention. The cowboy received
orders and remained east Ju*t long
enough to persuade Miss Famham
that ahe could not get along without
him. Her father wa* compelled to ac
cent tbe portrait he bad coveted In lied
of hi* daughter,- who returned to
ranch land with tbe artl*t. There be
painted many picture*, which found a
ready sale both In America and abroad.
