At sound of his name the prince sat

Incredulously at her.
"Sonla!" he exclaimed. "Sonla!"

stiffly and said:
"I beg your pardon, madame."
"No; I beg yours," she replied.
"Pray go on suorlng."

"Yes. freedom Is one of your fade, I

A strange smile stole across her face.
She came very close to where he atood;
so close that the faint perfume of her
hair was sweet In his nostrils; so close
that her breath was warm upon hia
lips; so close that his bewildered soul
struggled In vain to hide from the glory
In her eyes. Her voice was a musical
whisper as she asked:
"You'll never say to me 'I love you?' "
There was an Infinity of allurement
in the tempting word. Danllo, with a
mighty effort, shook off the spell and
"Never! Never! Never!"
"That's a comfort!" she said coldly,
drawing away and seeking to veil ber
keen disappointment "But," she added
more softly, "why not say it if you
really want to?"
"I don't want to!" he declared aulkl'
"And you promise faithfully you'll
never say to me. 'I love you?' "
Again she was perilously close to
him. Again bis eyes tore themselves
free from the pleading seduetiveneea of
hers as he relteruted:
"I promise! I'm not going to make a
fool of myself or be made a fool of."
"Ia that a declaration of war?'
"No of friendship. Do you mean
to say if I asked you to be my wife
you would merely laugh at me?"
"Probably. All men are alike."
