Triii, A crowd of citizens and was chattering and staring at the tower when Sophy's carriage drew up at the entrance of the bridge which, croMicf the North river, gave access to tbe fort.

Yet it could be help long enough to settle tbe business of Cap- tain Hercules.

The prince received her in the lurge round room which constituted the iirst floor of the central tower. Its furniture was simple, almost rude, its massive wails quite bare save for some pieces of ancient armor. Narrow slits, deep .set in the masonry, served for windows and gave a view of the city and of the country around on every .side. They showed the seething throng on the north wail and on tbe quays. The distant sound of a thousand voices struck the ear. Zerkovitcb and his wife were with the prince, seated over a simple meal, at which Sophy joined tbern. Marie had watched Sophy's entrance and the prince's greeting closely. She marked Sophy's excitement betrayed in the fa- miliar signal on her cheek. But the jonrnalist was too excited on his own account to notice other people. He was talking feverishly, throwing his lean body about and dashing bis bands np and down. He hardly paused to wel- come the newcomer. He had a thou- sand plans by which the prince was to overcome and hold down One and all, they bad the same defect.

So he stood a moment, then quickly turn- ed to the table and sat down. Sophy followed, her gaze fixed on bis face. Zerkovitch ceased writing. He had been drawing up aa ther plan. Both he and .Marie now watched the prince. Moments went by in silonce. At last the prince a low voice, almost "My guns for Mistitch.1 Mistitch against my guns! That would be a fair The three sat silent Tbe Zerko- vitches, too. had hoard him talk of the guns. How on them hung the tranquil- lity of The city and how on them might hang the country's honor, and existence. Stenovies could give them if be would in return for Mistitch, but to give up Mistitch was a great surrender. So- phy's whisper, almost involuntary, the voicing of a regret hardly even of a distant aspiration, bad raised a problem of conduct a question of high policy. Tbe prince's brain was busy with It and his niind perplexed. Sophy sat -watch- ing him. not thinking now, bnt waiting, conscious only thatjjy what seemed al- moet chance a new face bad through her been put on the situation. Suddenly Zerkpvitch brought his clincjied fist down on the table. "Nor be almost snooted. "They'll tnink you're 'Tes, they'll think that but not all of them.

"I- think he must give anything or everything for Mistitch." He rose and paced restlessly about the room. So- phy still followed him with her eyes, f but she alone of the three offered no argument and made no suggestion. Tbe prince stood still for a moment in deep thought Then bis face cleared. He came quickly up to Sophy, took her band and kissed it "Thank he said, "I don't know bow It will turn out for me. The case is too difficult for me to be able to fore- see that. For me it may be I always thought it would mean or perhaps, somehow, it may turn to ruin." He pressed Sophy's hand now j and smiled at her. She understood nnd returned his smile. "'But the question isn't one of my Interest My duty is j plain." Ho waikeu quickly to his writing table and unlocked a drawer. He re- j turned to the table with an envelope in his hand and sat down between Marie and The orderly entered again, announc- j 'ing Stenovics.
