It was his duty to keep guard that night at the Koyal bank, and his colonel was not a man who would lightly overlook even a trifling offense against the military What, then, was the motive which could induce this gajlaht young officer of her majesty's service, who had al- ■eady won distinction for >n the battlefield, icquitted himself lefetofore, to plan in infringement of duty as the Pent of the post he was boi lor to guard? ceuse.

As he led out the lady the seftpegrace lover had the satisfaction of seeing Ms •ival turn away with a lowering brow, ffe was determined to lose no time low. In the maze of the Waltz, while ;he soft undulating strilins of Straii.ss iteeped the senses of the dancers in' iweet dreams of delight, under the roseate light of the many wax candles in that perfumed, crowded ballroom, a question was asked, and an answer tremulously whispered, which trans­ ported two young people into a tempo­ rary paradise of their own creating, where tliere were only two, and no any other besides. No won- \ ich a moment all minor nsiderations were for- room for der that £ sublunary cons gotten. But, when a brief ecstatic hour had passed, and they emerged once mote from the rosy pavilion whither they had retreated among the flowers, there logmed, dark and erect in the distant doorway of the adjoining ballroom, a tall, martiiil figure, whose gray head towered above the company; a vision which struck a sudden chill to the ■dent lover’s heart. “ By Jove!” he exclaimed, with a start. “ There's the colonel!” The sharp ejaculation, breaking in strangely upon the dulcet tones of love, fistonished the pretty creature who hung on his arm. “ What of the colonel ?” she asked, softly. “ Whyshould he notheliere, poor man?” Because I am here who ought to be on guard in —street, and because 1 ^ a ll be cashiered to a certainty if he es me,” was the abrupt reply. “ Oh, do go away this minute.

The colonel had turned his back and was moving into another room. No, he could not go just yet, the temptation to remain was too strong. “ Leave you now, when we are lappy and are to he parted so soon? •lo, I cannot, darling,” he whispered, bndly. “But, never fear, we will keep out of his way.” She did not urge Mm any u iderstand them erstand the magnitude the offense nor the risk it involved, and was too glad to keep him a little longer by all available means.
