"Life is full of -ops 'aud downs,"
mused the colonel as he laid on the lit-
tered desk before him an official com-
munication just received from depart-
ment headquarters, "especially army
life, and moro especially army life in
Texas. ’ ’
"Now, what are you philosophizing
about?” asked his second in command, a
burly major, glancing over the top of
the latest home paper, three weeks old

propped between his legs as he took his
seat and thoughtlessly ignored as he left

generally!” he growled as he recovered
his balance and tramped to the window.

ever the army knew, for congress had

“God knows,” said Brooks sadly.
"I’ve got five of my own to look after,

sounded a few moments before, and all
over the sunshiny parade on its west-
ward side, in front of the various bar-
racks, little squads of soldiers armed
and in full uniform were standing
awaiting the next signal, while the
porches of the low wooden buildings
beyond were dotted with groups of com-
rades, lazily looking on. Out on the
greensward, broad and level, crisscross-
ed with gravel walks, the band had
taken its station, marshaled by the tall
drum major in bis huge bearskin shako.
From the lofty ftigstaff in the center of
the parade the jfational colors were flut-
tering in the mountain breeze that stole
down from the snowy peaks hemming
the view to the northwest and stirred
the leaves of the cottonwoods and the
drooping branches of the willows in the
bed of the rushing stream sweeping by
the southern limits of the garrison.

Letters full of sympathy were written
and sent by couriers far to the north;
others took them on the Concho trail.
Brooks and Frazier both wrote to San
Antonio messages, thence to be wired
to Washington, imploring reconsidera-
tion, but the deed was done. Astute ad-
visers of the war secretary clinched the
matter by the prompt renomination of
others to fill the vacancies just created,
and once these were confirmed by the
Benate there could be no appeal. The
detachment led by Brevet Lieutenant
Colonel Lawrence, so later said the
Texas papers, had covered itself with
glory, but in its pursuit of the fleeing
Indians it had gone far to the northeast
and so came home by a route no man

Cruel was no word for it Entering
the army before the war, one of the
few gifted civilians commissioned be-
cause they loved the service and then
had friends to back them, Edgar Law-
rence had joined the cavalry in Texas,
where the first thing he did was to fall
heels over head in love with his cap-

resulted. Poor Kitty Tyrrell! Poor Ned

“On his way here? Who is he?”
queried the major in sudden interest.
They didn’t know when Stone came
through San Antonio ten days ago. ”
“Man named Barclay; just got his
captaincy in the Thirtieth—consolidated
out of that, of course.”
"Barclay—Barclay, you say?” ejacu-
lated the major in excitement “ Well,
of all the”—
“Of all the what?” demanded the
colonel impatiently. "Nothing wrong
with him, I hope. ”
""Wrong? No, or they wouldn’t have
dubbed him Galahad. But, talk about
upe aud downs in Texas, this beats all.
Does Winn know?”
“I don’t know that any one knotoh
but you and me, ’ ’ answered the veteran,
half testily. “ What’s amiss? What has
Winn to do with it?”
“Blood and blue blazes! Why, of
course you couldn’t know. Three years
ago Barclay believed himself engaged
to a girl, and she threw him over for
Winn, and now we’ll have all three erf
them right here at Worth. ”

Miss Helen Gould.
Kansas City Star.
The accumulation (or perhaps
acquisition would be the better
word) of the great fortune of Jay
Gould was viewed by the Ameri-
can public with various feeliDgs.
Mr. Gould was regarded as a mon-
ey-getter, hard, sharpandremorse-
less, aud it was known that his
financial enemies and antagonists
were crippled and ruined without
mercy j but for this the .public
cared little, since it was believed
that Mr. Gould’s foemen would
have ground him up with as little
compunctions had they been fa-
vored with the opportunity.
Jay Gould dipd aipid little pub-
lic mourning, not so mnch because
he did evil, as because he failed to
do good. fa his life and with
boundless opportunities he never
linked his name with any public
or private charity. If he ever did
a generous deed the particulars
were kept carefully concealed and
all publication suppressed. He
left hie fortune entirely to the
members of his family with direc-
tions which seemed to indicate a
desire that they should hqld to-
gether as a family for the sake of
their njoney and make more mon-
Little expectation was entertain-
ed by the public that any good
was to follow Jay Qouid’s money

WINfc Of CAPtllJ
A daughter marri«d one of the
cheaper French noblesse, who
carried her away to France to lav-
ish her wealth for his pleasure.
The sons gave out uncertain signs,
some of imitating the elder broth-
who toiled at home, soma of the
prodigal son who went abroad,
but none of doing good, when
there came quietly into the view
of the world the form of Helen
Oftenest it has happened that
great good has come to this world
from unexpected sources, deserts,
maDgers, carpenter shops and
such places; and the most remark-
able benefactions have been
dropped into the lap of humanity
by nnseen, or before unknown,
hands, but never did a new bene-
faction come into the field to sow
early and late with more perfect
stillness and quietude than did
Jay Gould’s daughter. There
was something about it all at first
that made one think of ber father
and his financial coops; here was
some one doing generous deeds
in the impenetrable and mysteri
ous ways in which Jay Gould once
executed selfish ones. It was not
eccentric concealment, but merely
silent movement, as of some one
who would not be conspicuous,
saying to agents, “ Do me this
good thing and hold your peace.”
And so the public has come to
know that one great fraction of the
great Jay Gould fortune is flow-
ing like a stream underground,
comiDg to the surface here and
there at times in springs of benev-
olence th$t shall never go dry.
So conspicuous are the effects
that the cause can not bAbidden,
and so Gen. Wheeler moved in the
national house of representatives
that, for her services to the sick
and wounded soldiers of the coun
try, Miss Helen Gould should re-
ceive the thanks of congress and
a gold medal from the president
of the United State3^To this it
is believed no objection was offer-
ed save the stnpid one that it had
never been done before—.that a
woman had never received the
thanks of congress, which does
not amount to a reason. The
thanks of the nation will be grate-
fully received, but they had
naught to do with opening the
generous hand of Helen Gould.
The lesson of it all to a fretfu’,
complaining and impatient world
is that there is no such thing as
locking op that Christian charity
which “droppeth as the gentle
dew from heaven.” All the com-
plaining about the last or the pres-
ent season’s drought does not
change the nature and habits of
the rain or dew They will fall,
because they must, and just as
certain as any heavenly regula
tion concerning the “ early and
latter rain” is that law which so
ordains that in our own country
at least, shall in time reach the
place where it will do the most
good. A great fortune in a few
hands has been often described as
a danger and a tpenape. IJotsoin
this country—not so in America.
Only fora little time can wealth
be hoarded or kept at- self accu
inflation. The gold falls from the
bard hands tfirft ptytchpd ft ajid
held i» ; it is gathered in open
palms of charity j it is scattered
u wide as the voters bp.i?
