In the afterudou she went driving

Duke of Mizrox, upon whose innocent

1&W appeared at the castle for his first

himself that Beverly hated him to the
Point of desperation. At the same time
he was eager to learn how matters
ood with Baldos. The count's threat
till hung over her head, veiled by Its
ridiculous shadow of mercy. She knew
nlna well enougfr by this time to feel
avlueed that Baldos would have to
ccount for his temerity sooner or
pr. It was like the cat and the help

short time. The major
tte let tcr three week, later found noth
Ing In It to warrant the belief that she
was ever coming home. He dj ob.
serve however, that she had but little
use for the army of Graustark and
was especially disappointed In the set
of men Yetive retained as her private
guard. For the life of her Beverly
could not have told why she disap
proved of the guard In general or In
particular, but she was conscious of
the fact after the letter was posted
that she had said many things that
might have been left unwritten. Be
sides, It was not Baldos' fault that she
could not sleep. It was distinctly
her own. He had nothing to do with
"I'll bet father will be glad to hear
that I am coming home," she said to
Yetive after the letter was gone.
"Oh, Beverly, dear, I hate to hear of
your going," cried the princess. "When
did you tell him you'd start?"
"Why-oh-er-let me see, when did
I say? Dash me, as Mr. Anguish
would say, I don't believe I gnve a
aate. it seems to me I said
that's all."
"You don't know how relieved I am,"
exclaimed Yetive rapturously, and Bev
erly was In high dudgeon because of
the Implied reflection. "I believe you
are In a tltt with Baldos," went on Ye
tive airily.
"Goodness! now foolish you can be
at limes, Yetive!" was what Beverly
gave back to her highness the Prlncesa
Of Graustark.
Late In the evening couriers came In
from the Dawsbergen frontier with re
ports which created considerable ex
citement In castle and army circles.
Frlnce Gabriel himself hud been seen
in the northern part of his domain, ac
companied by a large detachment of
picked soldiers. Lorry set out that
very night for the frontier, happy In
the belief that something worth while
was ubout to occur. Geueral Marlunx
Issued orders for the Edelweisa army
corps to muss beyouu the Boutnern
gates of the city the next morning.
Commands were nlso sent to the out
lying garrisons. There was to lie a
geueral movement of troops before the
end of the week. Graustark was not
to bo caught napping.
Long after the departure of Lorry
and Anguish the princess sat on the
balcony with Beverly and the Count
ess Diigninr. They did not talk much.
The mission of these venturesome
young American husbands was full of
dancer. Something in the air had told
their wives that the first blows of war
were to be struck before they looked
ogaln upon the men they loved.
"I think we have been betrayed by
some one," said Dagiiinr after an al
most Interminable silence. Her com
panion did nut reply. "The couriers
say that Gabriel knows where we ure
weakest at the front and that be knows
our every movement. Yetive, there ls
a spy here after nil."
"And that spy lias access to the very
heart of our deliberations," added Bev
erly pointedly. "I say this In behalf of
the man whom you evidently suspect,
countess. He could not know these
"I do not say that he does know,
Miss Calhoun, but It Is not beyond rea
son that he may be the go-between, the
means of transferring Information from
the main traitor to the messengers who
await outside our walls."
'Oh, I don't believe It!" cried Beverly
"I wonder If these things would have
happened If Baldos bad never come to
Edelweiss," mused the princess. As
though by common Impulse, both of
the Graustark women placed their
arms aliout Beverly.
"It's because we have so much at
stake. Beverly, dear," whispered Dag-
mnr "Fonrlve mo if I have hurt
Of course Beverly sobbed a little In
the effort to convince them that she did
not care whom they accused if he
proved to be the right man In the end.
Thev left her alone on the balcony.
For an hour after midnight she sat
there and dreamed. Every one was
ready to turn against Baldos. Even
she had been harsh toward him, for
had she not seen him relegated to the
most obnoxious of duties after promts
lug him a far different life? And now
what was be thinking of her? His de
scent from favor had followed upon
the disclosures which made plain to
each the Identity of the other. No
doubt he was attributing his degrada
tion In a sense to the fact that she no
longer relished his services, having
seen a romantic little ideal shattered
bv his firm nssertlous. Of course she
knew thnt General Marian x was alone
Instrumental In assigning him to the
unpleasant duty he now observed, but
how was Baldos to know thnt she was
not the real power behind the Iron
Count? ,
A light drizzle began to fall, cold and
disagreeable. There were no stars, no

from her thoughts. She wondered If
he were patrolling the castle grounds In

the tread which was so well known to
her. :
At last he strode beneath a lamp not
far away. He looked up, but of course
could not see her against the dark wall.
For a long time he stood motionless be
neath the light. She could not help see
ing that he was dejected, tired, unhnp.
py. His shoulders drooped, and there
was a general air of listlessness about
the figure which had once been so full
of courage and of hope. The post light
fell directly upon his face. It was:
somber, despondent, strained. He wore
the air of a prisoner. Her heart went
out to him like a flash. The debonair
knight of the black patch was no more. !
In his place there stood a sullen slave
to discipline. I
"linldos!" she called softly, her voice
penetrating the dripping air with the
clearness of a bell. He must have been

'Aren't you afraid you'll get wet?" ask-i
'J same Ijw, sweet voice, with the1
:g. siioti of a l.mgli behind It. With
long strides he crossed the pavement
atnl stood almost directly beneath her. j
"Your highness!" he exclaimed gen-1
tly, Joyously. "What are you doing out 1
'Wondering, Baldos. Wondering i
what you were thinking of as you
stood under the lamp over there."
"I was thinking of your highness," he
called up softly.
"No, no!" she protested.
"I, too, was wondering wondering
what you were dreaming of as yon
slept, for you should be asleep at this
hour, your highness, lustead of stand
ing out there In the rain."
"Baldos," she called down tremulout
ly, "you don't like this work, do you?"
"It has nothing but darkness in It for
me. I never see the light of your eyes.
I never feel the"
"Sli! You must not talk like that
It's not proper, and besides some one
may be llsterlug. The night has
thousand ears or Is It eyes? But lis
ten. Tomorrow you shall be restored to
your old duties. You Burely cannot be
lieve that I had anything to do with
the order which compels you to work
at this unholy hour."
"I was afraid you were punishing me
for my boldness. My heart has been
sore you never can know how sore. I
was disgraced, dismissed, forgotten"
"No, no; you were not! You must not
suy that. Go away now, Baldos. You
will ride with me tomorrow," she cried
uervously. "Please go to some place
where yon won't get dripping wet."
"You forget that I am on guard," he
said, with a laugh. "But you are a wise
counselor. Is the rain so pleasant to
you ?"
"I have an umbrella," she protested.
"Whit are you doing?" she cried In
alarm. He was coming hand over hand
up the treliis work that Inclosed the
lower veranda.
"I am coming to a place where I
won't get dripping wet." be called
softly. There was a dangerous ring in
bis voice, and she drew back in a
"You must not!" she cried desperate
ly. "Tills Is madness! Go down, sir!"
"I am happy enough to tly, but can
not. So 1 1. the next best thing I
climb to you." His arm was across the
stone railing ly this time, and he was
panting from t he exertion, not two
leet from where she crouched. "Just
one minute of heaven before I go back
to the shadows of earth. I am happy
again. Marlanx told me you had dis
missed me. I wonder what he holds In
reserve for me. I knew he lied, but It
Is not until now that I rejoice. Come,
you are to shield me from the rain."
"Oh, oh!" she gasped, overwhelmed
by his daring passion. "I should die
If any one saw you here." Yet she
spasmodically extended the umbrella
so that It covered him and left her out
In the drizzle.
"And so should I," resonded he
softly. "Listen to me. For hours and
hours I have been longing for the dear
old bills In which you found me. I
wanted to crawl out of Edelweiss and
lose myself forever In the rocks and
crags. Tonight when you saw me I
was trying to say good by to you for
ever. I wus trying to make up my
mind to desert. I could not endure the
new order or tilings, iou uau cast
tue off. My friends out there were
eager to have me with them. Io the
city every one ls ready to call me a
stir even you. I thought Life was
black and drear. Now, my princess. It
In as bright as heaven Itself."
"You must not talk like this," she
whispered helplessly. "You are mak
ing mo sorry I called to you."
"I should have beard you If you had
only whispered, my rain princess. I
have no right to talk of love-I am a
vagabond, but I have a heart, and It ls
a bold one. Perhaps I dream that l am
here beside you so near that I can
touch your face but It Is the sweetest
of dreams. But for It I should have
left Edelweiss weeks ago. I shall nev
er awaken from this dream. You can
not rob me of the -Joys of dreaming."
Under the spell of bis passion she
drew nearer to him as be clung strong
ly to the rail. The roses at ner uiruui
came so close that he could bury his
