Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 23, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta AUOUtT SOPHY OF KRAVON1A By Anthony Hope Author Of The Prisoner Of Ihe clapped her Lands in gtee. ajonselgucur, a "It must be the last for a long be "so we must enjoj it" This day-tills holiday which mlffat be the In a fine cartteM- ness and a rich Joy in llvluf. TIM cloudless sky and flittering water! of Lake Talti. were parties to 'tlMlf pleaaure, whether as they, rode ftl along the Ashore or sal ind ate a simple meal on the rock strewn gin. Hopes and dangers and stern solves, were forgotten. Even of the happier to- sues which the future promised or dangled fore then to was uttle thought of speech. The blood ol youth flowed briskly. The heart ol youth rose high. The prince Jested and 'paid his court Sopby'l .eyes gleamed with the fan not eret the most exalted and perilous ture could make them sparkle. "Ofi, it's she tt live and see the sun! Monselgneuf, 1 believe.I'm a sun worahiperl When he's good enough'to warm me through and to make the water glittef for me and shadows dance In such cunning pattern on the hills, then 1 think I've done something that he llkei and that hes pleased with She sprang to.her feet and stretched out her hands toward "In the grave, I believe, I shall remember the glorious light My memory of that siirely never His was the holiday mood too. Hi fell in with, her extravagance, meeting it with banter. only a he said, "Just lamp, and if s hung there lor the soli purpose of showing Sophy's eyes. When she's not there they put it but, for what's the use of "They put it out when I'm not "I've noticed it happen a dozen timei of late." "It Jights up again when I "Ah, then I forget to "You get very little sun anyhow, something so much It Is pathetic to that she should have set it down as though every word of it were it down as minutely as she chronicled the details of the critical hours to which'fete was soon to call her. They rode home together as the sutt was sun of ruddy gold, be- hind it one bright purple cloud, the sky beyond blue, deepening almost into black. When Praslok came in sight she laid her hand on his, with a long drawn sigh. "We have been together she v "That will be there always. Yes, -the sun and the world-were made for .us today, and we have been worthy." He pressed her hand. 'Ton were teach me what joy worth of the world to menjwho live In it You're the angel of joy, Sophy. Before you cams I had missed that lesson." 'Tm very she ends her oice trembled as he read aloud letter. It was brief, but dutiful and even affectionate. After a slight-reproach that he should have been kept In ignorance of the ap- prehensions entertained about the king's health the prince requested an audience within the next two days. He had considerations which It was his duty to lay before his he firmly but respectfully claimed the tight of confidential communication with his father. That was'essential to his majesty's obtaining-a true appre- ciation of his views. The hit at Ste- novics was plain enough, and the prince did not labor it The letter end- ed there, with an expression of earnest concern for the king's health. There was no word in It about starting on his Journey. Then Markart told his that he had much to telL In essence added only that the prince proposed to await the king's answer at Fraslok- Nelther to him bad the prince said a word about starting on his journey. On this point Stenovlcs seized, pur- suant, no doubt, to the plan devised la that preliminary discussion with the other two members of the littis coterie. Is remarkable, sir, even more his royml high- ness makes no" reference at all to the direct command which your majesty was pleased to issue to he ob- served. The king listened, puzzled and rather distressed. "Yes; It isn't proper; It Isn't respectful. But now that my aon. i knows the state of my health I think I innst see him. It seems unnatural to refuse. After all, it may be the last time, since he's going on this Journey." "But is the prince going on his Jour- I ney, asked Stenovlcs. "Does the [studied silence of his letter augur well for his obedience? Doesn't be seek an I interview in order to persuade'your j majesty against your better Judgment? i I'must be pardoned freedom of speech, '-Great interests are at stake." The last words were true enough, though not in i the sense in which the king was meant i to understand them. "My son knows how near this mat- ter Is to my heart I shall be able to persuade him to do his said the king. Tbe first round of the fight was go- Ing against the coterie. They did not want the king to see his son. Danger lay there. The prince's was the strong- er character. It might well prevail. and they were no longer certain that the prince knew or guessed nothing ot theiishopes and intentions. How much news had Zerkovitch carried to Praa- lok the night before? Stenovlcs ad- dressed-the king again. "Captain Markart gathered that the' prince was reluctant to interrupt the military training on which he en- gaged at Volseni, "A very excellent thing, that, but the "thfir msttcr Is niors change my mind on account of that" personal Interview 'might be try- to your majesty." The king looked annoyed, possibly a .little suspicious. 'You've no other ob- jection than that to urge, General Ste- Stenovlcs hafi none other which .he could produce. "No. he said. "While I'm here I must do my duty, and I shall Induce my son to do bis. I'll receive the Prince of Slavna in pri- Ivate audience tomorrow or next day. I'll fix the precise time later, and Til write the letter myself." (To be contlnuedj September 5th Do JOT Share to make it a Great Suctss ;MAN AT MICHEL MINE District News WH1TLA AVhitla, Aug.
