CHAPTER XIII. Continued.
Tbere were re porta from her agenta.
i check from her banker, a aad sonnet
from a former captain of tha Royal
Onard. one of her most steadfast ad
mirers, but none were of great Impor
tance. Bhe glanced through them and
then opened the one that moat Inter
ested her:
"My Dear Countess: I waa pleased
with the newa that I received through
Edison that yon are safe and well. Th
political situation haa received a tre
mendous ahaklng op, but the people
are happy and preparations are under
way to restore th same good order
that wa enjoyed In former daya; but
no more militarism.
"I think the European people will
soon be aa rich aa our American
brothers. We expect them to teach
ua the latest methods of finance, etc.
We will gladly welcome every oppor
tunity to learn from them.
"A bit of newa: Tba Princedom of
Bcbomburg Llthow la In great aorrow.
It baa lost the last member of Its
reigning family. I am telling you thla,

"European monarcba were muoh aur
prised at the American defenae, but
they had to accept what I had to offer
them. Now In their dlaaater they are
bonded together.
"I will be glad to hear further from
yon. You know that I have alwaya
taken keen lntereat In your move
ment. Wlth the beat wtshee. Count von
Rosltta glanced once more through
the letter. Interpreting It.
"He has received my message. They
want to restore tbe old order. They
are aniloue to get the aecret of the
aerodromone, for which they offer me
the Princedom Schomburg Llthow All
European monarche are In the fract"
Bhe answered the count'a letter, then
left It and her reply open on her desk,
to be read by anyone who might wlah.
Bhe dressed and went to Astra
boudoir. Together they entered the
dining-room In time to aee Napoleon
and Ambroslo Hale enter from the
other door.
Napoleon' eye, reated with appre
ciation on the picture the two preeent-
Mr. Hale greeted them effualvely,
then turned to the counteaa, whoa
eharma were. In many reapecU, even
more faaclnatlng than the PreateJent'e.
A ride on horseback waa acht-duled
for the afternoon; that old, Invigorat
ing sport still held Ita charm, aa all
were accomplished horsemen.
The dara ware etlll abort, and they
had to hurry homeward, aa they
wished to reach th capital before un
set. Napoleon, who knew the country
best. Ud them through a short eut, a
meadow nestling between two 4eep
teeeeta. aad thus to a shorter roaa.
By the time they reached the flrat
sabarfe It had begun to grow dark.
They bad to cross the town to roach
the Crystal Palace. Aa they paaeed
ander the first street lamp two mea
who were standing on the corner, Msar
aa automobile, peered eloaely at them.
One of the men graaped tbe other by
tbe arm and a aid: "Coma" They
jumped Into tbe car and It a hot for
ward, turning the nearest corner, aad
raced toward the north, to the heart
of the city. At the new oongreaalooal
building they stopped and beckooed to
a man who seemed to await them.
I tell you, Motrak, they will paaa
this corner," said one of the men im
patiently. "But I would prefer to stand farther
down, where there la a greater crowd,"
aid the man who bad been waiting.
"What do you want with the crowd r
"To help me escape," waa the lacon
ic answer of the man called Mosrak.
"Juit aa you pleaee," assented the
man in the car. "Select your own
The automobile with the three men
went farther, where the streets and
elevated aldewalka er crowded with
people. Mozrak looked around and
back, aa If he expected to aee aome
one be knew.
"Here!" The man at the wheel
obeyed. "Walt for me at the next cor
ner, with everything In readlneaa. and
when I jump Into the car you are to
let her out" Mozrak left the automo
bile and threaded hla way through the
crowd. The big car turned the corner
Indicated and a topped. Mozrak walked
far enough to get Ita bearings, then
returned to the center of the block.
Hla band atrayed toward hka hip
pocket, reated there for a aecond and
then he atood watching the paaalng
In the meantime the four on horse
back neared the building in a alow
trot; as they reached th busier streets
their horses fell Into a walk.
Napoleon rode on Astra's left and
they were closely followed by Rosltta
and Hale. They pasaed tbe building
and were nearing tbe place where Mos
rak leaned agalnat a lamp post, amok
lng contentedly. He aaw the coming
quartet, and took a deep breath. When
they had reached the center of the
block, near where be atood, hla right
hand went Into hi hip pocket. Juat
as the four on horseback reached him
be jumped toward Aatra with leveled
ana, and the glint of an automatio pis
tol was aeen.
Th platol waa pointed at Aatra,
whoae horse made a nervous Jump
whsn th man came forward. Before
the man could pull the trigger Napo
leon'a whip hissed through the air,
hitting him squarely In tbe face. The
platol exploded; the bullet grazed Na
poleon's right ahoulder, and before the
fellow could make another attempt to
shoot he waa aelzed by two onlookers
and hla pistol waa knocked from hla
grasp. He waa daxed by a blow and
stood looking at them blankly.
Aatra fainted, but many kind and
willing arms were there to prevent her
falling from her horse.
Rosltta, who Just a few mlnutea be
fore waa ao full of Joy, looked at the
scene shudderlngly.
Napoleon, like a god of revenge,
stood over the man. She could aee
blood oozing from bis right coat
sleeve, hut that blood waa not the
cauae of her pale, terror-stricken face.
It was tbe face of the assassin that
had startled her. She knew that face.

Napolson, Like a God of Revenge,

Napoleon let the shaking would-be aa
aaasln go he spoke to him in a stern,
low vole:
"Who ar you?"
"Nikolay Mozrak."
"A Russian T"
The pale man almply bowed.
"Who aent you to commit thla moat
miserable deed?" And he shook the
man aa a atorm ahakea a withered leaf.
"It waa my fate; I had to do It," the
man answered calmly.
"Miserable curl" said Napoleon, and
tossed the man Into the arma of the
waiting guard, then turned toward Aa
tra. Her eyea met thoae of Napoleon, ap
prehenilvely. "You ar hurt I" ah whispered,
pointing toward hla hand.
"It muat be a mere scratch, aa I
have not felt It."
The return to th palace waa a
silent one. Napoleon submitted to the
doctor' treatment, but hla wound waa
slight, and when It waa properly
dressed he returned to th drawing-
room, where Hale waa doing hla beat
to driv away the oppression eaaaed
by th accident.
Aatra bad regained her eompoaarej;
her only fear waa that Napoleon's
wound might be dangerous, bait

her, but It waa Imponalble.
It took all her will power to fore

the words: "I am glad you were not
badly butt,"
During a lull In the conversation ahe
asked: "What la the name of that
"He said It was Nikolay Mozrak,"
answered Napoleon.
"Nikolay Mozrak." ahe repeated efcrw
"A Roealan," added Napoleon.
Then Mr. Hale turned the conversa
tion Into other channels.
Napoleon could not but notice thai
after be had told the name of the sua-
aaasln the countess bad partly re
gained her composure.
At eleven o'clock Rosltta waa aa the
roof of the Crystal Palace, waiting tor
the Hawk. Aatra and Napoleon had
come up to aee her off. Napoleon
helped her into the machine, where a
tall atranger stood at the wheel. The
bird rose and took ita direction and
called off toward the west.
Rosltta went to the aerial chauffeur
and spoke, but hs signaled back that
he could not hear or talk.
She returned to the comfortable
bench and tried to think: "Does Nspo-
leon suspect something? No, It can
not be, or he must be a wizard." With
thla ahe lay down and in a tew min
utes waa aleeplDg like an Innocent
baby In a cradle.
The New CirynJth Deposft.
The fact that Rosltta found a
stranger In the aerodromone, Inateatd
of Santoa Duprel, wa not the teenJt
of any suspicion on Napoleon's pawt.
Santoa had received a more important
The lubatanc "elrynlth," that won
derful, glittering element that com
bined all the qualities of glaaa and rub
ber, that waa a thouaand time
atronger than steel, lighter than ah
mtnum and absolutely Indestructible,
waa very scarce. The volcanic Island
of Clryne, where Napoleon had discov
ered the precious metal, waa rapidly
becoming depleted of the material with
which to build aerodromonee, and as
Napoleon's plans for the future were
based on elrynlth, he must look tor
other sources of supply. He felt con
vinced that this metal muat be ta
other placea, and whenever he hasl
time he flew over countriea where he
suspected its existence.
A wonderful instrument, similar to
a spectroscope, waa of great aaalat
ance to him in hla aearchea. Ha had
found aome trace of elrynlth In the)
volcanic regione In Italy, but not suf
ficient for his purposes, so he west
Immediately upon Santos' return
from Clryne with Rosltta he had beast
dispatched upon this search, and Na
poleon himself started out the next
morning. Hla wound waa ao alight
that It did not Interfere with hla move
ments, and he started early, flying
toward Italy. He went slowly along
the western coast of that boot-like pe
ninsula, searching diligently, but with
out results.
Santos was looking through the
Alps. The poor fellow labored under
great difficulties. His mind waa not
clear enough to work on the delicate
radloscope. Rosltta had robbed him
of hla peace and he dreamed more
than he watched tbe changing colon
of th little Instrument.
The radloecope suddenly began to
show Interesting colors and recalled
him from hla dreams. The tiny plate
that waa framed In platinum glowed
greenly; it waa like a pale emerald,
and growing more Intense at every
stroke of the great bird's wings.
Santoa looked around. He saw a
splendid picture: Toward tbe right
great forests stretched, then came a
few volcano peaks, with ancient ruins
on top, and beyond all thla spread a
long, silver lake.
Before him waa a mighty plain tn
the center of which stood a tremen
dous pyramid with the top as flat and
level aa though it had been aliced off
with a knife.
The radloscope showed plainly that
this pyramidlike hill waa rich tn tha
precious elrynlth. Santos waa so ex
cited that he forgot even Rosltta for
a while. The plateau and the whole
pyramid waa barren of human beings,
ao he descended.
It bad been thousanda of years sine
the volcano had been active, and tha
lava composition waa full of the crys
tals that produce elrynlth. Santoa
gathered some in a small box and thea
began to figure out his geographical
ituatlon. He found that he wae near
the town Kis-cell, County 8uemeg. 1
am In Hungary," he muttered. "And
thl I a richer deposit of elrynlth thaa
th master ever expected to And."
Having Too Many Things.
Many nervous, Irritable, dissatisfies,
nnhappy women would become calm
and contented If they would store,
give or throw away half of their be
longings. Some have abandoned ele
gant residences and taken their fami
lies Into hotel or boarding house
who could have continued to keep up
their homes If, Instead of giving up
the bouses themselves, they had done
away with the superfluous furnishings.
Their Sense of Humor.
"Why." asks Gertrude Athertoo.
"should a woman murder her hna
bandf" It'a a difficult question, Ger
trude, but our own personal guess Is
that most of them are actuated by a
desire to exploit the delicious fund
of humor they possess. Philadelphia
First Survivors Reach Port and
Tell Experiences.
Officer and Men Leave Ship in Dam
aged Boat to Show Rescue
Was Possible.
New York This port took in and
sheltered Thursday the first survivors
of the steamship Volturno to arrive in
thia country, 105 in number, brought
into port by the Grosser Kuerfurst,
the North German Lloyd liner that
sent the first rescue boat careening
across the heavy seaa to remove paa
sengers and crew from tbe burning
From the lips of some of the Vol
turno's survivors there came descrip
tions which accentuated the heroic
conduct of the Volturno'a captain, offi
cers and crew, and of tbe men who
manned the boats which put forth
from other ships.
Tbe explosion of a drum containing
chemicals waa the cause of the fire,
according to the story told by Waldron
Disselman, third officer of the Voltur
no. Disselman gave a thrilling nar
rative of the long hours spent on the
fire-ridden ship fighting the flames.
repairing the crippled wireless plant,
lowering life boats, quieting the
panic-stricken, steering the vessel by
hand to keep her from drifting while
the waves were running too high for
small craft from other ships to ac
complish the journey to the Volturno'a
More than 80 passengers were
burned to death when they were cut
off by flames, Disselman reported.
Ranking well up with tbe bravery
displayed by Captain Inch, of tbe Vol
turno r, were the daring feats of his
officers, among them Second Officer
Lloyd. While 10 ocean liners man
euvered about the Volturno after dark
ness had settled. Captain Inch wire
lessed :
"We can't stand thia long. Our
boats are gone. Send boats."
No rescue boats came in response to
Inch's wireless.
Then Second Officer Lloyd measured
up to the mark. Taking four men
with him, he entered a damaged life
boat, the Volturno'a last, and showed
that it was possible to ride the seaa.
Second Officer Von Carlsberg, of the
Grosser Kuerfurst, told the story of
how Lloyd and bis crew set the ex
ample for the other ships.
"We saw a light it waa Lloyd's
pocket lamp dancing op and down on
top of the waves," said Von Carls
berg, "and in a short time the Voltur
no's boat reached ua. Second Officer
Lloyd and his crew were in the boat
and no sooner had they boarded the
