CHAPTER VII. Continued.
The chevalier suggested a walk tn
the open air, hut the captain shook
his head. "I am sorry to disappoint
rou, my dear chevalier, but your ter
ritory ends here." He said this with
such kindness that It was plain to the
ehevalier that he was sorry for the
For two Ions months the Captain
Hans Euler kept faithful company to
There mo chance to escape from
this prison; not even a chance to look
nt at the ocean. The Chevalier dl
Leon soon realized that he could not
escape and knew that all he could do
wu to wait.
The personal belongings that he
had left In the room at the Hotel
kfetropole were brought to him, and
great was his satisfaction when be
saw that nothing bad been forgotten.
Papers from Berlin and England
were In the reading-room and be waa
Informed of the doings of the world.
On the 6th of February the chancel
lor strode Into the reading-room where
the chevalier was comfortably read
ing a novel by the English writer. Sir
Elder Haggard, that had been pub
lished about 1920.
"What a pleasant surprise, your ex
cellency!" bowed the chevalier with a

The answer came aa a flash, but
aaJm and sarcastic:
1 am listening to you, your excel
lency, and as to my coming, I did not
eome of my own accord; I was car
ried." A devilish little smile twinkled
In the gray eyes of the chevalier.
The chancellor waa offended; tbe
young man dared to play with him,
the iron banded master.
"Tour Jokes are out of place; you
are a clever man, but I will have to
ask my question again. Will you
Their eyea clashed like the cold
steel of two swords.
"Chevalier dl Leon, you are not
taking your situation seriously. What
la your liberty worth to you?"
"It is very valuable, your excellen
cy; however. It haa no price, as I
know that everything comes to him
"Then you are not willing to con
sider any offer I may make?"
"Tour honor, as a prisoner, I am not
In a position to listen to any offer;
the time will come when we will stand

influenced by circumstances; thn I
wfll consider things seriously. B7 this
I dont mean to say that my Impris
onment In flu en ere me In any way."
The Count von Werdenateln paced
the room Impatiently. Suddenly be
turned to the quietly sitting man.
, "Chevalier, I certainly admire your
courage. I must admit my defeat."
He offered bla hand to the chevalier
and turned to leave the room saying:
""Until we meet again, chevalier!"
When the chancellor returned to
Berlin be called for the Countess Ro
sin y and asked her to attend a private
aadlenoe as soon aa p owes bla. She hur
ried to the chancellor's print offlca
"My dear countess, I request! your
presence urgently, aa I desire to make
you a gift that I am sure you ill be
glad to aocept.
The eounteaa looked questlonlngly
at her dictator.
"You have asked me several times
what happened to the Chevalier dl
Leon, your gallant knight and dancer,
and I have found blm for you; more
than that. I will turn blm over to
you for safe keeping."
The eounteaa' beautiful face became,
for a fleeting moment, sad, then her
"I am counting on your clever work.
The chevalier Is a man whose mission
and means are obscure and I mast
know more about him. You are the
only one In the service who will be
able to obtain this Information for me.
To show you how much I trust you
and your ability, I give you carte
blanche you may do as you please.
If you should And It necessary, yoa
may even elope with him. Here la a
special order and passport, also an ex

"I see; but what Is It that you want
"Everything, my dear countess; but
especially the situation across the At
lantic." "I think I know what my duties are,
and will start for Helgoland tomorrow.
When shall I report progreea?"
"When your mission Is at aa end."
The Countess Roslny picked up the
documents, looked them over and
placed them In her handbag.
The punctilious chancellor escorted
her to his office door and bade her
goodby, wishing her good fortune.
When the door closed behind the de
parting countess the chancellor rubbed
his hande with satisfaction, "I am
glad she took the commission so calm
ly. Now, my dear chevalier. If you
can withstand those violet eyes you
are not an ordinary mortal but a
The countess' beautiful face was
set and determined; she had not spok
en, but storm was raging in her heart.
Three days later the captain told
bla prisoner that a new guest was ex
pected; that she was a lady of the
court, charged with conspiracy against
The chevalier laughed. "1 should
not be surprised to And an old ac
quaintance In tbe fair conspirator."
The captain's eyes grew round and
his honest face expressed surprise.
The following morning Countess Ro
slny arrived. The apartment adjoin
lng that of the chevalier was given her
and the prisoners met In the presence
of Captain Euler at the breakfast
Tbe greeting that Chevalier dl Leon
gave was quite a surprise to the count
ess; he acted courteously, but gave
not the leaet sign that he had ever
met her before. When the breakfast
was over he retired to the reading
room, where the countess followed
him, without the captain.
"You dont seem to recognise me.
He glanced around cautiously, aad
when he saw they were alone he whis
pered: "I thought It might be disa
greeable for you, countess, but now
that we are alone, I greet yoa with
all my heart"
"What brought you here, chevalier?"
Chevalier dl Leon laughed and
shrugged his shoulders. "I think it
is a caprice of tbe Connt von Werden
steln; he wants to extend all the hos
pitality he possibly can. Look at thoae
masterfully constructed windows that
give you air and light, without per
mitting you to see even the sky. Is
that not the limit of forethought?"
The countess recognized bitter f see
ing in the chevalier's heart, and cast
ing down her beautiful eyes, she
sighed: "From now on yoa will have

In which the chevalier was killing
time seemingly in perfect contentment.
When the month of February was
gone be felt a longing for the free air
and bis thoughts began to concentrate
upon an attempt to make a strike for
liberty. He examined all the devices
that were arranged to prevent escape
from the prison.
Tbe Countess Roslny noticed the
change that bad come over the cheva
lier and one evening she began to talk
about the moon and stars, saying that
spring was at the door. The chevalier
listened to the sweet voice of the wom
an who sat opposite) to him quietly.
Tefl me. cneaBee are yoa of
stoue? Have yoa no bumaa feeling
"I certainly have, eounteaa; Indeed,
I am well endowed In that respect.
"Havent you fvlt happier since
came to share your solitude?"
He looked at her with those bold
penetrating gray eyes for a long time.
"Countess, I admire you, and you
are the pleasant! comrade that
ever had. but I am troubled. The con
tlnuous Indoor life Is beginning to tell
on me. I am used to much exercise
In the open air, and I have many
things that I am worried about"
A few days later Captain Euler told
the prisoners that they would be al
lowed to spend the evenings on the
roof of the building.
The counteas watched Chevalier dl
Leon's face very closely when the cap
tain told them this and saw the gleam
of real pleasure In his eyes.
That evening they were taken to
the roof of the building; to be accu
rate, to a section of the roof which
waa surrounded by a high wall, so
high that It prevented them from see
ing the courtyard beneath, or anything
but the stars and the pale face of the
It was springtime.
"Dont you think this would be an
Ideal place to send up fire rockets?"
He looked toward the stars; his eyes
wandered over the dork blue firma
"You are playing with Are all the
time," remarked the countess, as she
moved nearer to the chevalier.
'Have yoa ever beard of a case
where people were married In a pris
on?" she continued.
"No, I never have."
Chevalier, will yoa tell me one
thing frankly, honestly?" Her voice
was tender and soft.
"Anything you ask, counteas.'"
"Are you engaged to be married?"
"I am not" The firmness of his
voice was enough to assure the count-
em that he told the truth.
"Are you In love?"
"In love?" he repeated thoughtfully.
1 don't know; all I know Is that I
have an Image, a saint enshrined In
my heart, of whom I think, for whose
welfare I am fighting and suffering. If
that Is love, then I am In love."
The countess sighed, a sob broke
from her heaving bosom and she let
her shoulder lean heavily against him;
the buried her face In his shoulder
and the tears trickled down her soft
cheeks ss she sighed:
"I am so very, very unhappy."
The chevalier bent bis head over
her and his eyea became dark for a
second; then he folded her In his
arms and their Hps met In a kiss.
The spell was short; the next mo
ment the countess stood up and tbe
chevalier picked her up and placed
her on the bench again, as If she were
a little child; then be turned and ran
down the stairs to his prtoon.
The r1 reworks.
Every evening after that, except
when It stormed, ths prisoners went
np on the roof. These evenings were
the pleassntest part of the days.
During the day the chevalier read
the dally papers and magazines with
great interest Ho found plenty of
engrossing news there, especially the
preparations of the confederated navy
and army. One article, very well
written by one of tbe chief engineers.
particularly attracted his attention.
That article described the Z ray and
Its destroyer. Tbe supply station of
destruction was Madeira, from which
place heavy cables were laid to reach
the 10th longitudinal meridian, along
which the Z ray ran. The heaviest
current of electricity was conducted
by this tremendous cable to three spe
cially built boats. The Bampsonlan
vibrating rajs were generated on these
boats. Each ray made 8,000,000 vibra
tions a second and all were directed
In a harmonious line toward the Z ray
belt In time the wall of Isolation
would fall down under tbe lmmenas
force playing against It and the In
vasion of America would follow.
After a long study the chevalier
placed the magazine on the table and
muttered: "The time for action la
Ona evening at the dinner table the
chevalier asked Captain Euler If be
could have some material for pyro
technlcal dleplays In order to lessen
the monotony of their existence.
The kind captain furnished every
thing he asked for. The counteas of
fered her services and they worked al
most all afternoon the next day get
ting the fireworks ready. Dl Leon
seemed to be an expert; he soon had
a large Japanese wheel, several turn
ing stars and also a number of long
sky rockets ready.
When evening came they excitedly
prepared for tbe grand fireworks. Ths
sky was clear and the moon had not
yet risen. Chevalier dl Leon arranged
tbe different pieces, and when the cap
tain came up he fired the first air ran
ner. The long rocket went high uj
In the air, whining and whistling, and
then, with a puff, broke Into thousands
of red sparks. Another puff brought
white and the third brought blue.
The next was ths Japanese sun;
this waa fastened to tbe center of ths
roof. It circled and sparkled for
Tbe chevalier waa deeply Interested
In his projectiles and, as the countess
assisted him. Captain Euler bad to
play the part of audience. There was
a larger audience outside their lncloe
ure, but that was another world.
When all the set pieces were used
the chevalier looked op In the sky,
seemingly searching for something;
at last his hand went Into bis pocket
and, bringing out aa object not nulla
a Browning pistol, he said: "And now
