SOPHY OF KRAVONIA The Herald'i Patteniis By Anthony Hope Author Of ** The Prisoner Of Zenda" my iiow far bis dtsobedtcoce In regard to acquainting tlie prince with yotir condltlnn is a serious offense. As to that I say notiilng. but it will be ob-Tioua that this man should know liatit-ing of any private measures undertaken or conteniplated." The king had listened carefully. "The case seems clear." he said. "Tbts fel-low'a a traitor. He's done barm already and may do more. Wbat do yoa aak, general?" "We might be content to let blm Uow nothing, but who can be quit* certain of Insuring that? Sir, yoahaTJi ivmt arrlred at a very important de> etaion-to take certati^ action. Absolut* �ecrecy is esaentlal to its auccess. I't* ni wiab. to press hardly on this man, bit I; feel bound to urge that lie should tk pat imder arrest and kept in the ns-Iribla* ontti the action to which I'refer bw been soccessfnily carried oat" >riie preeantloa is an bbvlons one and (j|M punishment hardly snffldent" Tlw kitac nw. "Do os you say, gvneral. I tatve yoo full discretion. And now lit ib to my room and rest. I'm very ttndi Gl?� me your arm, Lepage, and cone and make me comfoi^ible.'' J: spoke bis native French very quickly, one word Jostling over another, bis amis tying like windmills lind his hair bristling, as it seemed, with defiauce. "Yes. It's true, 8li\ I disobeyed jour majesty-for the fust time In thirty years: For the first time In, my life, sir. I did It! And wh.v? Because it was right! .Boonuse It was for honor. 1 was iiusry. .ves! I li:nl boon scolded beeatjse Count Alexis Iwde me call blm 'princ-e' iiiul you lif.Trd me do it. Tes, i\i w.-is iiugi'y. Was It my fault? Had I told hini be was a pi-Inro? No! Who h�d toUl hiu) lie was a piince? Don't ask me. sir. Asl; somehod.v else. For my part. I know well tlie difference be-'tween one who is a pviiic-u and one who Is not. Ah, I'm not iguoruut of that! I know, too, the differcuce between one who is a queen and one who la not-ob, with the utmost respect to Mme. la Gomtessel But I know it, and I re-memlier it Does everybody else e knew your majesty was ill. Be loves your majeaty. Yes! But if be bated you, sUU would be go?" With a sadden torn be was round on Stenovlca agato and threw out bis arms as though to embtsce a picture. "Look!; The prince hi away, tbe guna are coaus, the king dlesl Who commands in tbe palace? Who gpverna Slavna?" Be was back to the ktogi with anotbei: awlft tun. "May I anawer, sir? .May I tell you? The mother of Prince Alexis commands in the palace. Slavna Is ruled by tbe friends of Captato Mlstitcb!" Bla voice fell to an ironical rourmur.' "And the prtoce is far off-seeking a great prtoceaa! Sir, do you see the picture?" Stafnitz suddenly lowered bla eyea from the cciitog and looked at tbe gesticulating little man. with a amile. "Such imagination In the servants' ball!" be murmured half under his breath. The king neither rebuked bis levity nor indorsed tbe Insinuated satire. He took no notice at all. Hia eyes were fixed oh bis still trembling bands. Stenovics spoke in a calm, smooth j voice. "Absolutely, sir, I believe the man's honest!" he said, with ab inflection of good humored surprise. "One ] sees how he got tbe idea! I'm sure ; he's genuinely devoted to your innjeaty 1 and to the prince, as we all are. Be i sees something going on which be ! doesn't understand. He knows aome- j thing is gotog on that be'a Ignorant of. i Be knows the unfortunate condition ! of your majesty's bealtji. He's like a j narse-forgive me^ln charge of a sick ^ child. He thinks everybody but'himself baa designs on his charge. It^a really natural, however ^bsurd, but It surely makes the precaution I anggest-fd even more neceasaiy! If be went about apreadlng a tale like tblar* The Itoe waa clever-cleverer far than tbe countess' rage, cleverer than Stafttlta'a airily bitter aneer. But of U, too, tbe king took no notice. Lepage .took no mora tban lay in a very acont-fttl smile:, He leaned dbwn toward thi motlonleas. doll faced king and aald to hia ear: "They wanted blm to go, yea! Did they want hini to come back again, sir?" He bent a little lower and almost whispered: "How long would-bis journey have taken, sir? Bow long would it have taken him to get back U -in case of need ?" One more question he did not ask in words, but it was plato enough without them, "Bow long can your majesty count on living?" At last tbe king raised bla head and looked round on them.. Bla eyea wwo heavy and glassy. . "This man baa been my trusted servant for many, many yeara. You, Gen-^1 Stenovics, have been my ri^t ^nd, my other self. Colonel Stafnlta ia high to my confidence, and Lepageia only my servant." "I seek to stand no higher than any other of your .majesty's servante except to so far lia the nature of my services gives me a claim," said Stenovlca. "Bnt there's one here who stands far nearer to-me than any one, who standa nearer to me tban any living being. She must knov of this thing if Ifa true. If it's being done her hand muat bie foremost among tbe bands that are doing it" Bis eyes fixed themselves on tbe countess' face. "Ia it true?" be asked. - ^ "Sir, bow can you %sk? How can yon listen? True! It'a a malignant invention! He's angry because I reproved blm." "Yes, I'm angry. I said so. But Ifa true for all that" "Silence. Lepage! Am I to take your word nfraInst the.countess'?" Mnrknrt. silent listener to all this Bccr.u. i'"M!r'i>t that I.epat;e's game wos ill V' i �,Ill (loiibt what the eoonteas' word would be?

I bate too much respect for Mm*, la Oomteaae to aak that." Again he bent down toward tbe ktog. Tbe king looked np at him. Stenovteof siinlle came back toto tbe mtod. In a low, soothing tone Lepage made bin tbrow-his last auggeatlon. "Ume. la Comtesse Is of great piety. If Mme, it Comtesse will take a aolemn oath-well, then, I'm content! I'll aay I waa mistaken-bohest I declare, air, but mistaken." Stenovics raised bis bead, with a Jerk. Stufnttz smiled scornfully. Be was thinking that Lepage was not, after all, a very resourceful fellow. An oath! Great heavens! Oaths were to the day's work when you piit your band to affairs like tbla. But here Stenovics was wiser, and Lepage won (To be conttoued.C 2602 T^VDTES' SINGLE GORED SKIRT Paris Pattern Ns. 2S02. All Seams Allowed.
