As Napoleon arose the great hall

league with the Americas. Tomorrow
you will kindly call me up again and
tell me the results. I will then ar

The count consented, then discon
nected bis Instrument He went to
his majesty and had a gloomy recep
tion. The kaiser listened to the de
tails of the count's plans and shook
his head doubtfully. In the end he
consented to the ultimatum, remark
ing that the situation could not be
Answers consenting to the terms of
the ultimatum came promptly, and au
thorized the count to send It out.
England, however, refused. The
Island Kingdom was the only one that
sent a flat refusal.
The count shrugged his shoulders
Indifferently. "Then we will do with
out England, that Is alL"
Calling Rosltta on the 'graph, he ad
vised her to have her man In reaal-

her eager queatlon.
It Is ready to be sent, already in
"Then send it and in an hour an
aerodromone will call for you, I want
you to come to Sueroeg to see my
fleet" Roaitta shut off the current
before the count could answer. His
dignity was ruffled at her behavior,
but since It was Imperative that he
see her he bad to submit to her plan-
When the aeroman called for him the
ultimatum was on Its way and he was
ready to go to Suemeg.
Just before he left, however, he sat
down to hie deak and wrote a letter,
then hurriedly folded It and, sealing
It In an envelope, rang the bell for his
aide de camp.
The Captain von Hochamberg en
tered and saluted gravely.
"I have a very Important miBaion
for you, captain. Take the flrat train
to Hamburg and thence to England.
This letter contains a sealed order for
you. You must be at the German con
sulate in Liverpool by 8:00 a. m. to
morrow. If you receive no further or
ders then you are to follow the In
structions that you will find in this
sealed letter as quickly as possible.
Otherwise return It Intact Here is an
order for money and a pass. Secrecy
Is Important!" He shook hands wltn
the captain and dismissed him.
That makes me feel easier. He
sighed and started for the eleTator
that took him to the waiting aerodromone.
An hour later he was in Suemeg,
greeting Roe Hta. The man who had
made her what she was had lost his
value In her eyes. He could do noth
ing more for her, so he could be dis
carded or destroyed.
I have called your honor here, to
exhibit the fleet I possess, and to show
vou what we have accomplished and
what we can do." The latter woroa
carried a peculiar accent to the chan

"Your curiosity will soon be grati

on the "ray.

after a pause he said:

they dodged and turned, each trying

quick spring the "Princess" evades
lu enemy and slid between its wings
from the back and the next moment
the enemy was a captive.
It was an exhilarating sport.
"I congratulate you, princess," said
the count to the Intoxicated Roaitta.
The "Prlnceas" carried the captive
machine back to 8uemeg with ease.
The other machines returned, one
after the other, all enthusiaatlo and
discussing the tactics of air warfare.
After the Inspection dinner waa
served. In which the whole squadron
took part Werdensteln greeted sev

friends of those good days when the
armies held their own and when na

man of the German Empire, has been
given me. It is a great honor for as
to have you at our feast, and we, the
conauerors of the air, greet you, who

Rosltta smiled sweetly at the chan
cellor, who was watching the speak.
In amazement After a short pause.
de Korona continued
"We greet you as such, as a repre
sentative, and I, In my comrades'
names, ask your excellency to be with
us In heart and drink to the elected
queen of the air, who is dlstlned to
be queen of the world. Long live our
beloved Queen Rosltta."
The huzzas that thundered through
the hall told the chancellor plainly
that this was no pleasantry. His sus
picions bad not been without founda

died away he stood up, calm and de
termined and without a word left tha

A sigh of satisfaction swept over
th hall when Napoleon, after thla
