To soothe the aching brain. '

Stcpnnovltch shivered. He was re
viving from tho stupor In which tho
rcuts of tho past few hours had
plunged him. IIo had never expected
to be called upon ho, n man Jtut mar
ried. It wns unfiilr horrible. Why
should he bo sent out to this far ami
perilous country, called Mnnchurln, to
bo cotcn by these yellow goblins? If
what tho corporal said was true, ho
would never couio back alive. Nona
of them all would como back alive.
Why had he been such a fool, whou
tho yellow card wns given him, to go
to tho depot and be enrolled? Why
had ho not done as the others crept
out In tho night and mat tho German
agent who helped men to cross the
frontier and go in a ship to a coun
try where there was much gold? Was
It too later
Tho train rolled on through tho
frosty flats. It was a bitter cold night,
but the carriage was stifling. The oth
er recruits were asleep, or stupid with
fright They lay back agalust tho
wooden walls of the carriogo with
closed eyes, heedless of the Jolting. Tho
corporal, who had taken yet another
drink from his bottle, seemed to be
sleeping, too. IIo was a fierce-looking
man In his sleep, fiercer even than
when he was awake; but It was a
thing to bo thankful for that there
was a breathing space from those mon
strous stories of his. They hurt a
man's Inside, those stories.
To get rid of tho feci of them, Ste
panovltch tried to fix his thoughts on
Katlnka. She was a good girl and la
borious, and It was a shame that she
should be left as good as widowed
so soon. How she bad wept when the
yellow card camel Sho had wept so
much Indeed that when the hour for
bis departing arrived her eyes had
been quite dry. He hoped that she
-would not forget the Instructions he
had given her, In case be came back;
especially with regard to any money
he might save. It was not likely that
ho would save any. Very few did In
tbelr village, and Katlnka was a hun
gry ouo always. That was perhaps
why she was so plump. She was the
plumpest girl for miles around, and It
was for this reason that Stepanovltch
had loved her. Well, It was not to be
supposed that she could stay plump
forever, especlaly with her man away.
She would not bare the food. That
was natural enough not to have much
food when one's man Is away and
Htepanoyltcb did not regret that he
had kept secret from her the place un
der the floor lu which his savings were
stored. Hue might have been tempted
to spend them If she had known where
they lay; and then when he cm mo buck
end needed them there would be notb-,
Hut would bo ever come back? It
seemed the qucitlon would recur what
ever one fixed one's mind on. The
railway carriage was altogether asleep
now. There was nothing but snores
through the wholo of It snores that
kept time with the monotonous vibra
tion of the train. Stepanovltch, who
was In the corner by the door, put
his hand on the handle and turned It.
He bad not meant to open tho door,
but suddenly It was open. Tho train
went very sUjw; ho could see that by
looking through the veriest chink that
caused no draught and disturbed no
sleeper. A man could drop Into the
snow very easily and take no harm.
Two days later. In the evening, Ste
panovltrh stood outside the cottago
In which he had left ICatinka. It
seemed a year sluco he had left her,
but It was only two nights. He had
walked all the time, and run, too, ex
cept In the daylight, when he had hid
den himself In a straw stack. He had
eaten nothing and slept not a wink.
All the time, while he walked and
while he bid, he had thought of this
moment and of what a surprise It
would be to Katlnka. He would go
very cautiously In, put his hand on her
lips lest she should cry out, and, tak
ing bis money from the place under
the floor, beckon her to fly with him.
That very night they would cross tho
frontier with the help of the Oerman
ngeut; and In the morning he would
Beep sleep all the way to the land of
gold! What a morning that would be!
It seemed, however, as he stood out
side tho cottage, that there was a
noise within qulto a long and loud
uolne, as of some one singing. It could
not bo that Katlnka was singing, with'
him away, as she thought, among the
yellow Imps in the Manchurlan coun
try. Nor, again, was it her voice. It
was a man who was Hinging. What

PRINCE GUSTAF, NOW REGENT
OF SWEDEN AND NORWAY
Prince Oustaf, who has assumed tho regency of Sweden and Norway,
owing to the Illness of his father, King Oscar. Is tho tlrst born of the four
sons of tho latter monarch. Juno 10, 18.VS, Is tho date of his birth, and lu
1831 he married VIctorIn, daughter of the Grand Duke of Hnden. From Jan
uary 1800, to January, HOI, he also was In control of the government.
When Gustaf formally ascends tho throne, upon tlu death of hi father,
he will be the fifth sovereign of the house of Ponte Corvo, being a great
grandson of Marshal Hcrnadotte, Prince do Touto Corvo, founder of tho
dynasty, who reigned from 1818 to 1811 under tho title of Carl XIV. Jolinn,
Prlnco Gustaf also bears the title of Duke of Wennland. He hn three sons.

sat at the table, plump and well
looking. It did not occur to Stepano
vltch to wonuder how she had discov

what she had tntended to do with the
money. He was aware only that the
man had his back to the door, and
that he, Stepanovltch. bad a bayonet
In bis belt. He bad thrown bis rifle
away as soon as he bad leaped from
the train, but he had a bayonet still.

key: "The corpse, uccompunled by a
motley crowd of mourners, relatives,
sightseers and children, as laid tin
cottlncd upon a rough bier that looked
like n huge mortar hoard nud hidden

head and foot of ench grave and serv

a primitive bench or table made f
two slabs set upright In the ground
about seven feet apart and the third
laid on them crossways. Here, while
a woman sitting on a little mound nt
a distance set up a moit wild and
melancholy wall for the departed, n
priest, stepping forward, began to offer
up prayers, to which the audlcnre
made an occasional response. Tho
brief service concluded, once more thn
body was lifted and borne round the
cemetery to Its grove, that seemed to
be about threo feet six Inches In depth
Here It was robbed of Its gay-colored
