Talo as death sat the fair young
countess in her drosBing room. Rho
did not trernblo now, for every nerve
had become fixed in utter despair.
"Will you not change your dress,
my mktrees?" asked Zcnobio in a
low, tremulous tone.
"No, no," tho maiden replied, and
her voice sounded strangely even in
her own ear, it was so low and hol
low. "Why should I dress for tho
sacrifice ? The dumb beast may suf
fer garlands about its neck buforo
being led to tho heathen altar, but,
alas, Qod has not given me n brute's
ignorance to help me now. No, no,

"I C' ro not. Ho cannot auk me to
do it. He may do all ho wills, for I
am helpless here, but he dare not
"Oh, my denr mistress t" cried the
faithful girl, throwing her arms
about tho neck of her miatreM and
weeping as sho did so, "would to
God that I could bear this for you."
1 thank you all the same, my
best of friends," tho oountcss re
plied, gazing gratefully up into her
attendant's face. "Hut it matters
not much now. I shall not suffer
long. My sorrow will soon cease."
Zcnobio looked inquiringly up,
but sho did not speak.
"Ood will soon tako mo homo,"
tho wretched maiden murmured aft
er a pause. "I feel tho chill hand
upon my heart even now, and I
know that earth cannot bind my
spirit long with such a curso upon
Zenobie had no moro words of con
solation to offer, so sho did all she
could do. Sho drow tho head of her
mistress upon her bosom, and there
sho hold, it for a long time. Sho held
it thus until tho door of the apart
ment was opened and a female do

Sho stopped hero and seemed to
wait for an answer. But Itosalind
did not speak.
"What answer shall I givo him,
At this the countess started up,
but sho sank back again without
Tell him wo will come," inter
posed Zenobie, who saw thnt tho an
nouncement had taken tho last pow
er of effort from her mistress.
"Yes, yes," whimpered tho count
ess as the mesHcuger hesitated and
gazed inquisitively into her face.
And with this tho woman left tho
"My dear mistress," ppoko Zeno
bie, now calling all her power of self
control to her aid, "all , means of

there is no further hope. It will bo
better to go down at onco than to
arouse the bad man's anger by moro
delay. Wero thoro tho least glim

there is not. You know what I
A few moments Rosalind sat liko
ono dead. Then sho started tip, with
her hands clasped, and raised her
eyes toward heaven. Sho did not
speak aloud, but her lips moved,
and sho surely uttered n prayer to
God, and it was none tho less elo
quent because it was silent. Then
sue turned to her companion. J ler
lips were set and colorless, and a
deathly look had overspread her
"Zenobie," she said in a tone
which bore no feeling more than
the gliding of a cold, iey sound, "I
am ready. Onco mere, lcforo tho
last joy of earth departs from me,
let mo bless thoo and props theo to
my Ixwonu i am puro now !
Sho opened her arms as she spoke,
and when sho closed them again Zc
nobio was within their embrace.
"Bless you, bless you ever! God
keep and guide you to tho end of
life and then roeeivo vou homo to
himself! Kiss me. There, I am
The broken hearted girl wiped the
tear from her eye, and in a moment
more she was as cold and rxuxdonlcga

Without looking around tho Mos
lem maiden led the way to tho hall.
She walked slowlv, and sho fancied
the could hear tho beating of her
mistress' heart In tho hall stood
the duko with sorno half dozen of hi
own male attendants. He took tho
liaud of the countess as sho ap
proached him and gazed earnestly
into her face, but ho did not sneak,
lie led her toward ono of tho draw,
ing rooms, and when they entered
there they found the humpbacked
priest already in waiting. Rosalind ,
cam well nigh fainting when f.he !
saw this miserable villain ready for
his work. Sho knew now that tho
priest waa like tho muster.
"You see, my dear countess,"

look'd upon ilie twain before him
and directed them tu kneel.
"No, no, no!" gasped tho fair
countess, trembling for the first
t:me. "I cunnot d that !"
"Kneel!" hissed tho duko between
his clinched teeth, r.nd as ho ppoke
he grasped tho maiden moro firmly
y the arm ana forced her down
Sho uttered a quick cry of pain as
sho felt tho unmerciful grip, but
she could not resist tho strong arm
of her persecutor.
"Now go on!" the duko cried as
he held the maiden down. "Go on,
Savotano, and let tho busine.-s bo
done as soon as possible.
It was a voico of thunder whiel
spoko thus, and it came from tho
door. The duko started to his feet,
and he beheld iliiric Novel, the gun
maker, approaching tho spot. But
tho youth came not alone. Behind
him camo tho huge bulk of Vladi
mir, tho monk, and moro still, back
of the monk came the widow, Clau
dia Nevcl, and tho boy, 1'uul, and
then thero were, besides all this, n
heavy tramp of feet in tho hall and
tho clung of steel.
"1 fold I Stop this accursed mock-

"Miserable dog!" gaRpcd the duke,
mad snd frantic with rage. "How

"Look vo. riroud duke." tho monk
interposed, coming quickly forward ;

Rosalind had started to her feet
when sho first heard Kurie's voice,
and now, us tho monk spoke, a ray
of hopo darted to her soul, and,
with a quick bound, sho reached her
"Ituric, Ruric!" It was all she
could say, and, with a flood of tears,
she pillowed her head upon his bos
om, and bis stout arms were wound
fondly about her.
J' car not, he whispered, "for.
oh, Rosalind, thou art sufo now."
The mad duko saw the movement,
and, with a bitter curse, ho started

In a moment moro the sido door
was thrown open, and a dozen of tho
duko's servants came rushing in.
"Hal" Olga cried. "You aro in

on the spot if they offer ono act of
resistance. At them now! lown

"Hold!" It wail Vlndimir who
spoke, and every arm dropped as

"What is that?"
"By tho living god--, that is not

"No. It's near vou somewhere,
Can't you Ha! fn.in!"
At that moment the gtaro of a
flaming torch flushed through the
gloom of the place, and the two vil
lains stood revealed. A dozen stout
men, all well armed, appeared in the
only passage by which they could i
escape, for to have fed into the
drawing room of which they had

"Ho, villains!" shouted Vladimir,
the monk, raising his flaming torch
high above his head v.ith his left
hand, while in his right ho waved a
heavy sword. "Where is Ruric No

starting forward into the larger

Ave. my noblest of friends. But,
oh, cast off this accursed bond from
ruy arms. It cats into tho flesh."
The rope was quickly tuK'cn on,
nnd then the youth embraced his de
liverer. No questions were asked
there. Only a few sincere thanks
were uttered, und then attention
was turned to tho two villains, who
yet stood trembling near them.
They had not attempted an escape,
for the way was blocked up. They
were quickly secured, and then the
party turned away from the place,
and U3 they weut Ruric gave the
monk an account of tho manner in
which he had been entrapped and of
tho events which had transpired
"Merciful heavens!" ejaculated
Vladimir as Ruric closed his ac
count of the manner in which ho
hod overcome tho two men who had
thought to murder him. "It was a

without your coming," the youth
said, "for they would surely havo

"True, true," returned Vladimir
thoughtfully. "It was a narrow
chance. But it is over now."
"And how gained you the knowl
edge of my whereabouts?" asked
"I'll explain it to you when wo
have lime. But did I understand
you to say that tho humpbacked
priest wiis there?"
"Ho en me to my dungeon with
the rest, and 'twas he that I knocked
down. Have you not found him ?"
"No; uc have seen nothing of
him. We found two men in the hall,
and that was nil."
The place wns searched all
through lor tho priest, but he could
not be found, and when Vladimir
wus assured that the arch villain had
made his escape he prepared to leave
tho building. Tho prisoners, four of
them, were led out llrst and taken
awov by the monk's followers.
When Ruric reached the street,
the stars were all out, and tho cool,
frosty air struck gratefully upon hw
brow, llo turned toward his myste
rious companion, and under the
grateful impulse of tho moment he
stopped, lie raised bis hands to
ward heaven, uttered one fervent
sentence of thanksciung t. God
and then nioted on i.aain.
