The gate idlng to the river was closed, and i refuse from the fort was taken to barges by way of the main en ince. There were other changes sug sted for Immediate consideration, d then there was a general plan for i modernizing of the fortress at some re convenient time. Baldos la con illy observed that the equipment is years behind the times. To the lazement of the officials, he was le to talk Intelligently of forts In parts of the world, revealing a de and thorough knowledge and ex lslve Inspection, He had seen Auier in as well as European fortifications. ib Graustark engineers went to work once to perfect the simple changes advised, leaving no stone unturned strengthen the place before an at ?k could be made. rwo, three weeks went by, and the w guard was becoming an old story the castle and army folk.

Ha established himself as e best swordsman in the service, as ell as the most efficient marksman. 1th the tolls and sabers he easily nqulshed the foremost fencers in gh and low circles. He could ride ;e a Cossack or like an American wboy. Of them all, bis warmest ad irer was Haddan, the man set to titch him for the secret service. It ay be timely to state that Haddan itched In vain. The princess, humoring her own fan ; as well as Beverly's foibles, took to ling with her high spirited young lest on many a little Jaunt to the lis. She usually rode with Lorry or aguish, cheerfully assuming the sub led position befitting a Indy-in-wait-g apparently restored to favor on flhjatlou. She enjoyed Beverly's ilque position. In order to maintain r attitude as princess the fair young scelver was obliged to pose In the :tremely delectable attitude of being jrry's wife. "How can you expect the paragon to ake love to you. dear. If be thinks n are another man's wife?'1" Yetlve iked, her blue eyes beaming with the in of it all. "Pooh!" sniffed Beverly. "You have ily to consult history to find the ex ise. It's the dear old hubit of men to ake love to queens and get beheaded r it Besides, he Is not expected to ake love to mo. How in the world d you get that into your head?" On a day soon after the return of orry and Anguish from a trip to the ontler Beverly expressed a desire to sit the mooustery of St. Valentine, gh on the mountain top. It was a ng ride over the circuitous route by bleb, the steep Incline was avoided, id It was necessary for the party to ake an early Btart. Yetlve rode with arry Anguish and bis wife the couut is, while Beverly's companion was the illant Colonel Quinnox. Baldos, rele ited to the background, brought up tne rear wrtn Haaaan. For a week or more Beverly had been behaving toward Baldos in the most cavalier fashion. Her friends had been teasing her, and, to her own in tense amasement, she resented it The fact that she felt the sting of their sly taunts was sufficient to arouse in ber the distressing conviction that be bad become Important enough to prove em barrassing. While confessing to her self that It was a bit treacherous and weak she proceeded to ignore Baldos with astonishing persistency. Apart from the teasing, it seemed to her of late that he was growing a shade too confident He occasionally forgot his deferential air and relaxed Into a very pleasing but highly. reprehensible state of friendli ness. A touch of the old Jauntiness crop ped out here and there, a tinge of the old Irony marred his otherwise ierfect mien as a soldier. His langli was freer, his eyes less under subjugation, his entire personality more arroguut. It was time, thought she resentfully, that his temerity should meet some sort of check. And, moreover, she had dreamed of him two nights In succession. How well her plan succeeded may best be Illustrated by B:ylng that she now was In a most uncomfortable frame of mind. Baldos refused to be properly depressed by his misfortune. He retired to the oblivion she provided and seemed disagreeably content Ap parently it made very little difference to him whether he was in or out of fa vor. Beverly was In high dudgeon and low spirits. The party rode forth at an early hour in the morning. It was hot In the city, but It looked cold and bleak on the heights. Comfortable wraps were tak en along, and provision was made for luncheon at an inn halfway up the slope. Quinnox regaled Beverly with stories in which Grenfall Lorry was the hero and Yetlve the heroine. He told her of the days when Lorry, a fu gitive with a price upon his bead, charged with the assassination of Prince Lorenz, then betrothed to the princess, lay hidden in the monastery while Yetlve's own soldiers bunted high and low for him. The narrator dwelt glowingly upon the trip from the monastery to the city walls one dark night when Lorry came down to sur render himself In order to shield the woman he loved, and Quinnox himself piloted him through the underground passage Into the very heart of the cas tle. Then came the exciting scene In which Lorry presented himself as a prisoner, with the denouement that saved the princess and won for the gallant American the desire of' bis heart. "What a brave fellow he was!" cried Beverly, who never tired of bearing the romantic story. "Ah, he was wonderful, Miss Cal boun. I fought blm to keep him from surrendering. He beat me, and I was virtually his prisoner when we appear ed before the tribunal." "It's no wonder she loved blm and married blm." "He deserved the best that life could give, Miss Calhoun." "You bud better not call me Miss Calhoun, Colonel Quinnox," said she, looking back apprehensively. "I am a highness once In awhile, don't you know? "I Implore your highness' pardon," said he gayly. The riders ahead bad come to a standstill aud were pointing off Into the pass to their right. They were eight or ten miles from the city gates and more than halfway up the winding road that euded at the monastery gates. Beverly and Quinnox came up with them and found all eyes centered on a small company of men encamped In the rocky detlle a hundred yards from the main roud. It needed but a glance to tell her who comprised the unusual company. The very raggedness of their garments, the unforgettable disregard for conse quences, the Impudent ease with which they faced poverty and wealth alike, lelonged to but one set of men the vagabonds of the Hawk and Raven. Beverly went a shade whiter. Her In terest in everything else flagged, and she was lost In bewilderment. What freak of fortune had sent these men out of the fastnesses into this danger ously open place? She recognized the ascetic Ravoue, with his student's face and beggar's garb. Old Franz was there, and so were others whose faces and hetero geneous garments had liecome so fa miliar to ber In another day. The tall leader with the red feuther, the rak ish hat and the black patch alone was missing from the picture. "It's the strangest looking crew I'va ever seen," said Anguish. "They look like pirates." "Or gypsies," suggested Y'etlve. "Who are they, Colonel Quinnox? What are they doing her-?" j Quinnox was surveying the vaga bonds with a critical, suspicious eye. "They are not robbers or they would j be off like rabbits," be said reflectlve- ly. "Your highness, there are many j roving bands In the bills, but I confess that these men are unlike any I hav beard abont With your permission, I I will ride down and question them." "Do, Quinnox. I am mo curious." Beverly sat very still apd, tense. J3h To Cure a Ow ?n One Day t3 Laxative Bromo Quinine Tablets. ttm MHBosi koxea soUm pr? 12 months. ThlS Signature, was afraid to look at Batdos, who rode np as Quinnox started Into the narrow defile, calling to the escort to follow. The keeu eyes of the guard caught the situation at once. Miss Calhoun shot a quick glance at Mm as be rode up bo lide ber. His face was Impassive, but she could see his hand clinch the bridle rein, and there was an air of restraint In his whole bearing. Remember your promise," he whis pered hoarsely. "No harm 'must come to them." Then he was off Into the de file. Anguish was not to be left be hind. He followed, and then Beverly, more venturesome ana vastly more in terested than the others, rode reck lessly after. Quinnox was questioning the laconic Ravone when she drew rein. The vagabonds seemed to evince but little Interest In the proceedings. They stood away In disdainful aloof ness. No sigu of recognition 'passed between them and Baldos. In broken, Jerky sentences Ravone explained to the colonel that they were a party of actors on their way to Edel- Together they partial! subdued the on irnaU welss, but that they had been advised to give the place a wide berth. Now they were making the best of a hard Journey to Serros, where they expected but little better success. He produced certain papers of Identification, which Quinnox examined and approved, much to Beverly's secret amazement The princess and the colonel exchanged glances and afterward a few words In subdued tones. Yetlve looked fur tively at Beverly aud then at Baldos, as If to Inquire whether these men were the gout hunters she had come to know by word of mouth. The two faces were hopelessly noncommittal. Suddenly Baldos' horse reared and began to plunge as if in terror, so that the rider kept his seat only by means of adept horsemanship. Ravone leaped forward and at the risk of injury clutched the plunging steed by the bit. Together they partially subdued the animal and Uuldos swung to the ground at Ravone's side. Miss Calhoun's horse In the meantime bad caught the fever. He pranced off to the roadside before she could get him under control. She was thus lu u position to observe the two meu ou the ground. Shielded from view by the body of the horse they were able to put the finishing touches to the trick Baldos had cleverly worked. Beverly distinctly saw the guard uud the begg:ir exchange bits of paper, with glances that meant more tliitu the words they were unable to utter. Buldos pressed Into Ravone's baud a note of Borne bulk and received lu ex change u mere slip of paper. The pa pers disappeared as If by magic, and the guard was remounting bis horse be fore he saw Hint the act had been de tected. The expression of pain and de spair In Beverly's face sent 11 cold chill over him from head to fot. She turned sick with apprehension. Her faith had received a stunning blow. Mutely she watched the vagabonds withdraw lu peace, free to go where they pleased. The excursionists turn ed to the main road. Buldos fell buck to his accustomed place, his Imploring look wasted. She was strangely, In explicably depressed for the rest of the day. (To be continued, 1 Novel Street Sprinkler.
